Ji Yunxue’s hand shook fiercely. If Concubine Ji didn’t hold her hand tightly, the medicine would probably fall to the ground.
Ji Yunxue was shocked, and she was a little bit resistant to it.
This is harming someone else!
Concubine Ji interrupted Ji Yunxue and gave her a cold look, “If that little bitch is not sterile, you can’t climb into the position of the crown princess. Your future children will always be the child of concubine. Xue’er, you have to think clearly. A slight error in your thought will affect your child’s future.”
Ji Yunxue was suppressed by Concubine Ji’s words. She didn’t want to do anything that harms the others, but… her sister’s words were like a needle in her heart. How could she ruin her future children’s future?
Ji Yunxue tightly squeezed the sterilization medicine with her fingers, feeling that she was so despicable and vicious. She had no choice but to nod with tears in her eyes.
Seeing Ji Yunxue finally thought it through, Concubine Ji breathed a sigh of relief. As long as Xue’er was willing to cooperate with her, she would help Xue’er fight for the position of the crown prince.
This was not only for Xue’er, but also for herself.
When the emperor abdicates the throne in the future, Nan Gongyin would become the new emperor, and her younger sister would be the empress. Then, she could retreat from this prison-like palace and stay with her Brother Han.
Concubine Ji’s eyes flashed with happiness, and her bright red lips smiled slightly. She was like a seventeen years old young girl who just knows what love is.
In a blink of an eye, five days passed, the canonization day of the crown princess was getting closer as well.
The East Palace was full of joy. It was decorated with lanterns and streamers. Each wooden window was decorated with exquisite red characters “囍” (double happiness).
Nan Gongyin’s mind was very heavy these days. The jade face was covering his face. Although his facial expression couldn’t be seen clearly, it could be seen from his cold-moon like eyes.
Nan Gongyin came to Xiao Xi’s room and carried the little one into his room.
The little one kept yawning as it was sleepy. Hearing the words of Nan Gongyin, it immediately became sober.
“Xi’er, let’s go to the imperial tomb tonight.”
Nan Gongyin’s voice was a little fluctuating, mixing with uncontrollable shaking.
Nan Gongyin did not carry the little fox out, but he opened the bed board and walked into the secret path.
Nightshade walked ahead with a lamp in his hand, illuminating the way to the front.
Xiao Xi was surprised. Isn’t Nan Gongyin too bold? He actually dug a secret road leading to the imperial tomb in his room?
Nu Er followed Nan Gongyin. His peach blossom eyes looked deep, and his emotions were unclear.
After walking for about two hours, Nightshade opened the underground gate of the tomb.
Nan Gongyin glanced at the little one in his arms, and it had already fallen asleep again. Nan Gongyin smiled slightly. He moved his sleeves to cover the little fox, protecting her from the cold of the imperial tomb.
Nu Er saw Nan Gongyin’s subtle movements under his eyes, and his mouth twitched. Hypocritical.
“Your Royal Highness, we are here.” Nightshade stopped next to the coffin. He illuminated the coffin with the lamp in his palm.
The coffin was carved from a huge black stone. The surface seemed to be covered with a layer of frost. This chill reduced the temperature of the entire room.
Little fox was awakened by Nightshade’s voice, and opened its eyelids slightly. After the experience in the underground palace of Kyushu City, the little fox wasn’t so scared now.
“Open the coffin.” Nan Gongyin said in a low voice.
“Yes, Your Highness.”
Nightshade bowed to the coffin, then he got up, mustered his strength, and slowly pushed away the stone cover of the coffin.
A puff of cold smoke emerged from the opened coffin, and the room became colder again.
Nan Gongyin’s eyes moved, and his heart was a little nervous, and the jade hand holding the little fox also trembled slightly.
After Nightshade opened the coffin, he took out a bronze dagger and a jade bowl, and walked in front of Nan Gongyin.
“Your Royal Highness, you can start.”
Before Nan Gongyin’s stretched out hand touched the bronze dagger handed over by Nightshade, it was blocked by Nu Er.
“At most half a bowl of blood, this is my bottom line.”
“Half bowl of blood will not be able to save the empress, at least three bowls.”
Nu Er glanced at Nightshade, his peach blossom eyes flashed red.
“I don’t care how many bowls of blood you need. If she can’t be saved, let her continue to die.”
“Nu Er, you are too presumptuous.”
“Yes, I have the capital to be presumptuous.”
After Nu Er finished speaking, his figure flashed into the coffin. The blood-red robe followed the edge of the coffin and flowed into the coffin.
Nan Gongyin and Nightshade were shocked at the same time.
“You can’t go in, Nu Er. You get out!”
Nan Gongyin and Nightshade spoke at the same time.
Little fox widened her eyes and looked at Nu Er entering the coffin. What does Nu Er want to do?
After a while, Nu Er came out of the coffin with an ugly face.
“Nu Er, you are too much.” Nightshade snapped his fingers and punched toward Nu Er’s enchanting face.
Nu Er raised his hand to parry the punch. His red fingernails grew longer.
“All of you stop!.” Nan Gongyin said angrily.
Nightshade and Nu Er only stopped now. They didn’t fight in the tomb.
Nan Gongyin hugged the little fox and walked to the coffin. Xiao Xi stretched her fox’s neck and looked into the coffin. She saw a beautiful and picturesque woman closing her eyes as if she was asleep. Her belly bulged up with the size of a watermelon. It could be seen that this woman died when she was about to give birth.
There were a lot of white pearls on the woman’s body, but no gold and silver jewelry. Her clothes were rather simple as compared to the luxurious and bright clothes of Concubine Ji.
This is Nan Gongyin’s mother?
Nan Gongyin was the crown prince of the Southern Lin Dynasty, so his mother was the former empress. The burial goods of the former empress were so simple that it could even be compared to the mistress of a big family. Xiao Xi really didn’t know what to say.
Nan Gongyin was moved when he saw the woman lying in the coffin. He put his fingers into the coffin, stroking the top of the woman’s face… lightly.
The little one only saw that Nan Gongyin’s mother was frozen by a… crystal clear ice…
Xiao Xi suddenly thought that when she saved Zi Yi, she used a torch to melt the ice before she rescued Zi Yi. Could it be that Nan Gongyin’s mother must be saved by fire?
“Little disciple, Nan Gongyin’s mother’s case is different from mine. What she needs is your blood.”
Little fox felt a little strange. My blood can also melt ice?
This time Zi Yi did not answer little fox.
Nan Gongyin retracted his hand. The fingers that were still cold lifted up the little fox’s paw. He looked into its eyes, “Xi’er, please save my mother. I will thank on behalf of my brother or sister.”
Although he didn’t want to use the blood of this little fox in his arms, except for its blood, there was no magic medicine that could save his mother.
The little fox saw Nan Gongyin’s eyes showing sincere emotions, and it didn’t make a sound. It quietly watched him bite its small plum claws. Xiao Xi frowned in pain and saw Nan Gongyin dripping her blood into the coffin.
Nu Er frowned and screamed. He clenched his fingers, but he did not stop it.
The ice that sealed Nan Gongyin’s mother also sealed Miss’ antidote. In other words, if he wanted to get the antidote, he must first rescue Nan Gongyin’s mother.
Nan Gongyin is really despicable!
“Xi’er, does it hurt?”
Nan Gongyin’s gentle voice sounded in Xiao Xi’s ear.
Little fox nodded truthfully. Ten fingers are connected to the heart. My paws are made of meat, can it not hurt?
The bright red blood dripped in, and the ice melted quickly. However, this ice didn’t melt into water. The blood didn’t mix with the ice water, but it formed a red line that went into Nan Gongyin’s mother mouth.
After a few drops of blood, Nan Gongyin’s mother’s pale and transparent lips gradually became a little red.
Little fox’s eyes widened. Its blood was amazing…
Time passed bit by bit.
Nu Er’s hand tightened and loosened. He had an urge to step forward to stop Nan Gongyin, but when he thought about the antidote, he suppressed it forcefully.
Little fox also felt a little dizzy. The dark eyes lost some of their brilliance. It raised its head to look at Nan Gongyin and squeaked softly.
Nan Gongyin pitifully touched the little fox’s head, “Xi’er, hold on for a while, mother’s face almost regains its vitality.”
Little fox blinked, thinking that Feng Lingran also needed her blood to save his life, but he had never disregarded her life and death so greedily.
But Nan Gongyin, like Leng Yuhan, needed her blood, and he wouldn’t stop until his goal was achieved.
Xiao Xi thought. If saving the former empress needs all my blood, Nan Gongyin will still choose to sacrifice me for the safety of his mother and younger sibling!
Xiao Xi suddenly felt uncomfortable in her heart. This should be due to the Green Juice Voodoo. Only that she would care about Nan Gongyin so much.
She looked at Nu Er on the side of Nan Gongyin and saw the forbearance and coldness of Nu Er’s red eyes, and Xiao Xi felt very at ease. As long as Nu Er was there, she would not die…
In a trance, Xiao Xi thought. When I get the antidote, I will leave the Southern Lin Dynasty immediately…
As soon as the little fox was about to close its eyes, Nu Er could no longer tolerate as he grabbed Nan Gongyin’s wrist.
“Enough, if you continue to release Miss’ blood, she will die.”
Nu Er really wanted to kill Nan Gongyin.
Nan Gongyin discovered that the seven fluffy tails of the little fox had drooped down. Its eyelids were drooping listlessly. When it heard Nu Er’s voice, it forcefully opened its eyes a little bit. However, the initial clever dark eyes looked dispirited now.
Nan Gongyin felt a pain in his heart, and he tapped twice on the palm of the little fox and stopped the bleeding.
“Xi’er, how are you? I was careless, sorry.”
“Don’t be hypocritical here and return Miss to me.”
Nu Er’s finger suddenly grabbed Nan Gongyin’s arm, and Nan Gongyin instinctively avoided it. In that moment, there was nothing in his arms. The little fox was held in Nu Er’s arms.
When Nan Gongyin frowned, he wanted to grab the little fox in Nu Er’s arms…
A woman’s painful cry came from the coffin.
Nan Gongyin’s body was shocked. His dark eyes looked into the coffin and saw the woman inside holding her belly. Her face was full of sweat, and she was crying in pain.
The little fox widened its eyes and looked at the woman in the coffin. Bright red blood poured out from the woman, and its hair trembled.
It’s bad! Nan Gongyin’s mother is about to give birth, and it is even… a coffin child.
