Xiao Xi held the rabbit with a broken leg and looked at the former empress who wanted to sentence her to death in shock.
She shed tears and shook her head, “No, no, husband, where is my husband? I want my husband…”
Qiu Lan glared at the dazed guard: “What are you still doing? Didn’t you hear what the empress said? Or are you going to disobey the will of the empress?”
“Subordinates dare not.”
The guards knelt on the ground. Their eyes full of embarrassment. These days, they had seen with their own eyes how much the prince loved her. Now the empress wanted to kill the crown princess while his highness was not there. When his highness comes back, they may not be able to explain it to his highness.
If you don’t kill the princess, this is again against the will of the empress.
It’s so difficult!
“Since you don’t dare, then execute it immediately.” After a pause, Qiu Lan’s eyes flashed with a sinister light. She continued, “This is the will of the empress. If His Highness comes back, he will not blame you all.”
The guards looke at each other hearing that. This East Palace, even though it was the East Palace of His Highness, it was also the East Palace of the empress. Since Miss Qiu Lan had said so, if His Highness put the blame on them, the empress would still stand out to speak for them.
After all, the empress was His Highness’ mother. Even if His Highness loses his crown princess, he wouldn’t resent his mother.
“Yes, the empress.”
The guard stood up. Qiu Lan made an indifferent smile.
The current Xiao Xi was no longer the former Xiao Xi. She had asked Taoist Zhu Xu, and he said that the current Xiao Xi had lost her soul and became such a dumb look.
It’s really a godsent opportunity, as long as His Highness isn’t here, it’s easy to get rid of Xiao Xi.
Qiu Lan looked at Xiao Xi’s red and swollen face, as well as the panic and scared eyes. The smile on the corner of her mouth was greater. The slap just now made her hands numb, but she was feeling great in her heart.
Xiao Xi was caught by two guards. The rabbit in her arms fell to the ground, dragging its broken leg and looking at Xiao Xi who was pulled away by the guards.
“Guaiguai, Guaiguai… husband, husband, save me, save Guaiguai.”
Qiu Lan saw that Xiao Xi was still thinking for the little beast while being dragged out, she laughed. His Highness is now dealing with the proper affairs, even if you shout until you lose your voice, His Highness will not come and save you.
The former empress tightly grasped Qiu Lan’s arm. Her fingers were trembling, and she said nervously, “Qiu Lan, if Xiao Xi is killed, will Yin’er deny me as his mother?”
Qiu Lan restrained his laughter, lowered his voice and said, “Empress, he won’t. His Highness is your son. You did this to save His Highness from being killed by that demon fox. His Highness will understand your painstaking decision.”
The former empress nodded. Her eyes were still a little flustered. She murmured to herself as if to comfort herself, “Yes, Yin’er will not blame me. I did all these for Yin’er.”
Xiao Xi saw the staff in the guards’ hand, and she was terrified. Her eyes became red with tears, “Husband, where are you? Where are you? I’m so scared…”
The guards saw the pretty Xiao Xi crying so pitifully, even if they couldn’t bear it, they couldn’t help but act according to the empress’ insistence. They raised the staff in their hands and hit Xiao Xi fiercely.
Xiao Xi was moving here and there to dodge, but she couldn’t run from the cruel and heavy staffs. She was so painful that she kept calling “husband”, but these calls eventually made her disappointed.
Xiao Xi was beaten on the ground until there were no longer tears in her eyes. Even her voice was hoarse.
The guard’s hand that was holding the staff trembled. There was cold sweat on his forehead, “If I continue to hit, the crown princess will be dead.”
Qiu Lan helped the former empress walk out and said coldly, “Hit.”
The former empress was a little afraid to look at Xiao Xi who was beaten up and bleeding. In her heart, she silently thought. This is the demon fox that harms Yin’er. She deserves to be beaten to death.
The guard held the wooden staff tightly, raised it, and when it was about to fall again…
A cold ghost wind came with a crimson color. It was like the equinox flower in the underworld. It was emitting a strange fragrance to draw the souls to the netherworld.
The guard’s wooden staff did not fall. He felt a red shadow flashe in front of him. The sharp nails brushed across his neck, and his head fell without warning.
The rest of the guards were stunned by this scene, watching the guard whose head was cut off. The blood from his neck spilled out like a fountain.
The scarlet robe stopped by Xiao Xi. She was a woman with a very beautiful face. The guards of East Palace and Qiu Lan knew this woman… Nu Er.
Nu Er saw Xiao Xi covered with blood on the ground. His peach blossom eyes were bright red, as if blood was dripping out. He slowly bent down and stretched out his hands, trying to pick up the person on the ground, but he found that his trembling fingers didn’t know where to hold so that they wouldn’t touch her injuries.
Nu Er suddenly squeezed his fingers. His nails pierced into his palms. Fresh blood dripped out of his palms. His blood-red eyes suddenly lifted, sweeping past the guards holding the staff and Qiu Lan, as well as the former empress.
“You hurt my Miss like this; you all really deserve death.”
Nu Er revealed a cruel smile. His nails grew longer, his dark hairs danced wildly, and his red robe fluttered. He looked like a mad bloodthirsty monster.
“Protect the empress.”
Qiu Lan stretched out her hand to block in front of the empress. She moved back while staring at Nu Er vigilantly. Her one hand was on her waist to pull out the soft sword hidden in her waist at any time.
Nu Er’s blood-red eyes glanced at Qiu Lan, and her red lips smiled ghastly.
The guards not far away all drew out their swords. Some protected the former empress; some surrounded Nu Er.
When Nu Er started killing, Xiao Xi, who was covered in blood, made a low whimper.
“Husband… save me…”
Nu Er’s heart was bleeding like someone stabbed a saber on it. He felt so painful that he couldn’t breathe.
What husband? Nan Gongyin is a beast. He doesn’t have the ability to protect Miss, and he still leaves Miss in the East Palace.
Nu Er’s fingernails gradually shortened. He carefully picked up the person covered in blood on the ground, and said in a trembling voice, “Miss, Nu Er will take you to the doctor.”
“Kill this demon.”
A guard suddenly shouted, and all the swords struck at Nu Er.
Nu Er was holding Xiao Xi in one hand while waving his sharp nails ruthlessly. In an instant, the guards’ arms, bodies, faces were all wounded.
The sound of fighting was getting louder, and there were more and more guards.
When Nan Gongyin heard the news, he saw such a scene that surprised him.
No matter how good Nan Gongyin’s temperament was, he couldn’t help but roared angrily.
The guards stopped. Almost every guard had a scar on their body, which was caused by Nu Er’s sharp nails.
Nan Gongyin saw the wounds on the guards and thought of what happened in Kyushu City. His eyes changed slightly. Suddenly, he saw the woman who was covered in blood in Nu Er’s arms. He said fiercely as he strode forward.
“Nu Er, you monster, what did you do to Xi’er?”
Nu Er’s sharp fingernails were full of blood, and bright red blood kept dripping from his fingertips. He looked at the ridiculous man who questioned him.
“Nan Gongyin, you should ask, what did your people do to Miss?”
This is my Miss. I couldn’t even bear to hurt a single finger of Miss, but she was beaten to such a state by Nan Gongyin’s subordinates?
Nan Gongyin’s dark eyes glanced sternly the guards, “What did you do to the crown princess?”
Qiu Lan’s heart beat fiercely. Her pretty face didn’t reveal any expressions she shouldn’t have.
“Your Highness, it’s…”
Before a guard finished his words, his body twitched slightly, then his eyes gradually lost vitality as if he had become a walking corpse.
“What is it?”
Nan Gongyin groaned. Seeing that the guard was something wrong, he frowned tightly. Soon, all the guards became a walking corpse one by one.
Qiu Lan breathed a sigh of relief in her heart. Seeing the walking dead guards approaching, she remembered that Nightshade had told her about the forbidden area of Kyushu City, and her face changed suddenly. She pulled out the soft sword on her waist and said anxiously, “Your Highness, they have already become a zombie, you quickly escort the empress to a safe place.”
Nu Er’s peach blossom red eyes curled up gloomily, and he smiled coldly, “You hurt my Miss; none of you can escape. The Southern Lin Dynasty will become a dead city.”
“Husband… save… me.”
Xiao Xi looked at Nan Gongyin and stretched out her finger. She looked like she was dying. Nu Er was feeling very distressed.
Wasn’t Nan Gongyin feeling the same?
“Qiu Lan, bring mother away.”
Qiu Lan wanted to say something more, but she saw Nan Gongyin feeling distressed when looking at Xiao Xi. She bit her teeth. A hint of jealousy and sadness flashed in her eyes. She kicked away the guard in front of her and grabbed the empress who was shocked.
“Empress, let’s go.”
She would now go to Taoist Zhu Xu and ask him to subdue Nu Er this monster.
Nan Gongyin walked in front of Nu Er. When Nu Er’s long fingernails attacked him, he stretched out his hand and grabbed Xiao Xi’s fingers.
“Nu Er, the person your Miss needs now is me.”
the Eastern Jin Dynasty, regent mansion.
Wan Qiyu came to Xiao Xi’s room the next day and saw that her injury had opened up again. He frowned and walked to the bed, taking out the medicine in his sleeve, “You offended Feng Lingran again yesterday? Didn’t I already signal you to just go along with him and don’t offend him?”
Wan Qiyu stretched out his hand to unfasten the laces of Xiao Xi’s clothes and pulled down half of her sleeves. Her wounded shoulder was exposed. He sighed, “Haiz, I’m afraid no one can save you except me. Xi Xi, you should be very grateful to me.”
Xiao Xi glanced at Wan Qiyu. When the medicine was poured on her wound, she frowned and felt a little pain.
“You want the blood in my body to save Feng Lingran.” This is an affirmative sentence, not an interrogative sentence.
Wan Qiyu gave Xiao Xi some good medicine, then he helped her re-dress the wound. After tidying up Xiao Xi’s clothes, he said with a solemn face, “Did you realize that Feng Lingran’s cold blaise has become more domineering. I can’t even guess what he will do now.”
“Why is this related to me?”
Wan Qiyu saw Xiao Xi looking like she didn’t want to care, he smiled.
“Of course this is related to you. Not only is it related, it is also very much related.”
Xiao Xi disdainfully said, “Dumbass Yu, you don’t try to exaggerate to scare me off. You saw clearly how Feng Lingran treated me. Am I really cheap and lowly? He hurt me over and over again, and I still have to offer my body to him?”
Wan Qiyu’s eyes flickered, “Xi Xi, don’t you want to know why this is related to you?”
