Everything that happened at the border was already over.
But what happened in the Supreme Hall was just beginning.
“Who were the casualties?” Ya Nu’s voice trembled a bit. He knew that if it wasn’t someone important, eunuch Shen wouldn’t be this nervous.
Eunuch Shen immediately kneeled down and said, “It’s great general Xu and eunuch Ya Nu who went to the border a few days ago……”
“What did you say?” Ya Nu shouted out in shock. He ignored Luo Qing Chen’s sword to charge forward and grab eunuch Shen by the collar, “Say it again……”
Impossible, how was this possible? Why did he do this, why?
“It’s said that in the Ten Thousand Miles Gorge, they sealed the exits and trapped thirty thousand Liao People troops in. The soldiers that were ambushed were smashed by stones and shot with arrows……” Eunuch Shen gave a deep sigh before saying, “Neither the enemies or our soldiers survived. General Xu Yue……”
Eunuch Shen thought that reason the emperor was so agitated was because of Xu Yue, but it wasn’t like this.
It was because of the person that he wanted to protect the most, his brother Jiu.
“Ya Nu?” Luo Qing Chen’s brow trembled as she remembered many things. Each scene completely filled her mind and repeated again and again in front of her eyes.
Her tears started falling like pearls that broke off the string.
Why, why did she feel so pained?
Why, why did she feel so sad?
“You can leave first……” Ya Nu waved his hand. He collapsed onto the ground and burst into tears.
Eunuch Shen still wanted to say something, but he couldn’t say anything when he saw this.
Standing on the high platform, Luo Qing Chen holding the sword knitted her brows looking at the man who was filled with pain and her heart was filled with fear.
He wasn’t big brother Jiu Sheng, so why was he crying?
Xu Yue and Ya Nu dying, how was that related to him?
“Why are you crying?” She wiped away her tears with her sword hand and looked at him with a blank look, “Who are you?”
It was unknown how long the silence around her lasted.
The man finally said in a slow voice, “I am Ya Nu.”
“What did you say?” Luo Qing Chen shouted out in her sharpest voice. Her mind went blank as she remembered the last thing he wrote for her.
After I’m gone, you have to properly take care of yourself.
When all impossibilities were eliminated, the final remaining one no matter how impossible was the truth.
“Sorry empress, Ya Nu couldn’t protect young master Jiu, couldn’t protect you……” He walked forward like a puppet and raised the sword in her hand to put at his neck as his face was covered in tears.
He closed his eyes and he pulled Luo Qing Chen’s sword at himself.
But Luo Qing Chen’s sword fell to the ground like her heart.
“Why? I worked so hard to be with big brother Jiu Sheng, I’m not afraid of life and death, so why did he leave me……”
“Young master……and we all did it for the empress……”
“Ha, ha, ha, ha.” Without knowing why, she felt that his words were so ridiculous at this moment.
For her, for her, for her?
Did they know what she wanted? They did their own things without her knowing a thing, paving the way and then saying that it was all for her.
Laughable, truly laughable……
“Do you know? I wanted to be with him in life and death, I’ve waited for a thousand years. But I couldn’t even see him one last time……”
