“Good……Good, good……Good.” Concubine Rou bit her lip. There was a ‘peng’ sound as her right hand trembled after slamming the table, “This one gives you all rights to investigate……If Feng Zhi really was harmed by someone, even if this one dies, this one will never let them go.”
“Concubine, please calm down.” Luo Qing Chen knitted her brows, “This matter is very important. Murdering a prince in the palace is a serious crime that will implicate nine generations……”
“The person who wanted to kill the eighth prince must have a high position.” Luo Qing Chen’s expression changed slightly as she said, “If they aren’t caught in one fell swoop, not only will you not be able to avenge the eighth prince, even the concubine will be targeted.”
“Then what should we do?” Concubine Rou looked into Luo Qing Chen’s eyes, “This one trusts you. There was a strange trust at first sight, so even if there are many maids who say that you have a reason for coming to the Righteous Declaration Palace, this one didn’t believe it.”
“This servant thanks the concubine for your trust.” Luo Qing Chen took a deep breath, “Sir Song is also concerned about the eighth prince, so this servant made a decision to tell him.”
“That’s fine. This one’s little brother is a smart person, he will only help you and not hinder you.”
“Qing Chen understands.” Luo Qing Chen’s expression changed a bit, “Sir Song is already investigating what the eighth prince ate that day. This servant wants to see the eighth prince’s residence.”
“Feng Zhi’s palace was the one beside this one’s. After he left, that place was a mess. The emperor was afraid that I would miss him after seeing it, so he sealed it off and no one is allowed to enter.” Concubine Rou said this and her eyes turned red.
When she thought of her eighth prince, her heart would ache as if it was being strangled.
“Concubine, please allow me to enter the eighth prince’s palace.” Luo Qing Chen looked up and said, “This matter is very important.”
Concubine Rou hesitated for a long time before finally saying, “Alright! But try not to let others find out.”
“Qing Chen understands.”
The eighth prince’s residence was beside Concubine Rou’s palace, but it was sealed up completely.
Luo Qing Chen silently went in and carefully looked around. The room wasn’t cluttered and wasn’t dusty.
She looked in and out before finally setting her eyes on the candle.
It wasn’t that she found anything special, but because it was clean, very clean.
It seemed that the person behind this had been very thoughtful.
So the ‘evidence’ should have already been cleaned out.
But sometimes the more careful you were, the easier it was to leave behind mistakes.
Luo Qing Chen bent down and found that the surrounding carpets had already been replaced.
In order to prevent water from leaking in, there was no open fire in the palace. It was impossible to burn such a large piece of carpet.
At the same time, it was impossible for the person who did this to keep the carpet in the palace. Could it have been sent out of the palace?
Luo Qing Chen slightly knitted her brows. The prince died of illness not long ago, so if she left the palace to investigate, she should be able to find the carpet.
After all, if a careful person replaced the carpet, there should be evidence where the original carpet was.
When she was deep in thought, there was a person that grabbed her hand and pulled her towards them.
“Ah.” Luo Qing Chen was surprised. She wanted to pull away, but what entered her eyes was a beautiful face that could even glow.
“Leave quickly.” This was the first time that Song Nan Mo looked at her while speaking. His brows were knitted and there was a trace of worry in his eyes.
Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips and obediently said, “Alright.”
