In the forest not far away from Clear Light Temple. The air was thick with miasma and with the bad weather, the surrounding was even darker.
Luo Qing Chen suddenly regretted it. It wouldn’t be easy to find the carpet in this weather, she should have come in the day instead.
But there would be many people during the day and it would be inconvenient. So she decided to do it tonight.
In the east, there was a swamp if one searched the forest. If she didn’t know about this place ahead of time, she might have accidentally fallen in.
Using the Exquisite Ring as a flashlight, she lit up the surrounding area. She started looking from the eastern side, but she couldn’t find any footprints at all.
Not to mention any carpets……
Luo Qing Chen stood there with a frown as she muttered, “Could that waiter have already been bribed?”
When she was lost deep in thought, there was a loud cry that rang out as lights appeared in the surrounding area.
“Don’t let him escape. If he returns to the palace, all of us will lose our heads.”
“Boss, don’t worry. He’s already poisoned and can’t run far, he will die today.”
There was some distance between her and them. If the leader hadn’t shouted out, she wouldn’t have heard them.
Could it be that they were sent by the one who killed the eighth prince?
It shouldn’t be……
Poisoned? But she wasn’t poisoned.
Just who were these people chasing? Based on the wild voices, it should be someone from the palace.
Everyone’s head would be lost, that meant that this person’s status wasn’t low.
Luo Qing Chen knitted her brows before she started walking in the direction of those voices.
Her footsteps were light and she was still well hidden when she approached the light.
“Boss, there’s blood here.”
“Look carefully, he must be nearby.”
Luo Qing Chen narrowed her eyes and looked around.
Her eyes fell onto some rocks not far away.
If one wanted to hide, that was the only place.
When Luo Qing Chen was planning on going over towards the rocks, another black clothed person found it at the same time.
In an instant, she followed the light and saw the person that they had surrounded.
He was wearing a dark green robe and his handsome face was illuminated by the moon.
His face was pale, his right hand held his chest, and blood came from his lips.
But his aura was different from other people’s. It was as if just by standing there, he had the aura of a king.
“You can’t run.” The leader held a large blade as he said in a rough voice, “The world……will change owners.”
Luo Qing Chen’s heart trembled when she heard this.
She closed her eyes and remembered her time in the Harmonious West Palace.
Concubine Li wasn’t very favoured, so the emperor came to the Harmonious West Palace very little.
As servants, as long as the emperor came, Concubine Li would have them leave so they couldn’t see the emperor.
So the previous host’s world only had the emperor’s drunkenness. It made Concubine Li hate the maid she had raised over many years and send her to the clothes washing department.
Luo Qing Chen suddenly opened her eyes and unconsciously muttered this.
The young man in front of her surrounded by over twenty black clothed men was actually the emperor.
“Then it’ll depend on if you have the ability.” A cold voice rang out that had the imperial aura to it.
Although he had been poisoned, he never backed down.
Luo Qing Chen slightly knitted her brows, wondering if she should save him or not.
