After Xiao Guifei indifferently said this, she turned to look at Imperial Uncle Xiao and apologetically said: “Brother, I’m sorry. It’s me who caused our family’s downfall.”
Ever since Jiu Wangye appeared next to Xiao Ting, Imperial Uncle Xiao had been silent, and no one knew what he’s thinking. He was startled when he heard Xiao Guifei’s words.
Dissatisfied, he said: “We’re family. Naturally, we must enjoy blessings and endure misfortune together. What’s the big deal with dying together?”
Xiao Ting looked back at Jiu Wangye and whispered: “Do you have any ideas? If you don’t, just let me go. I must take my dad and Aunt with me today.”
Jiu Wangye looked at her condescendingly and asked, “Are you sure you can leave the Palace with two people while being besieged?”
“And even if you can leave the Palace, can you get out of the Empire? Who would dare take you in?”
Xiao Ting snorted coldly: “Anyway if they want to catch this miss, they must be dreaming.” She didn’t want to live in hiding, but there’s just no other way now.
“Big deal, just let everyone die together. Even if I die, I can make you all uneasy.” Xiao Ting threatened in a low voice.
“Okay, put your teeth away if you’ve made enough trouble. This matter has not yet reached that point.” Seeing Jiu Wangye say that, Imperial Uncle Xiao knew that things still had a chance to turn.
“Is there a way to save my sister’s life?” Imperial Uncle Xiao took the opportunity to ask about the life and death of Xiao Guifei.
Imperial Uncle Xiao had always known that Jiu Wangye‘s words have great weight in front of the Emperor, so when he heard Xiao Guifei say that his good daughter would marry Jiu Wangye, he agreed so simply.
If it were someone else, who would want to marry their daughter to someone who would die early?
How could he let his good daughter be bullied?
Xiao Ting also looked surprised, and looked up at him: “You really have a way? Why didn’t you say so earlier? You made this miss so tired that I have no time to drink water.”
YuChi XinHan was speechless, that’s because you cursed people too vigorously.
“Then what do we do now? I just offended the Empress Dowager and the others too badly. Right now, they want me to be a star in the sky, so I guess I won’t live, right?” Xiao Ting doubted what Jiu Wangye said.
Jiu Wangye then lightly said: “Take out the things in your embroidered bag.”
Xiao Ting blinked, then, she took out said thing from her sleeve.
“Which one do you want, this, this, or this one?”
What else is there? There are candies, fruits, and even rouge powder.
Mixed together, they didn’t know what other things she has in her pockets.
While everyone was still in a daze, the Emperor’s eyes stared straight ahead.
He saw that the last thing Xiao Ting took out was a map, which was obtained from the woman in black, while the one Xiao Ting gave to the woman was a fake.
Jiu Wangye picked up the sheepskin scroll without asking or saying anything.
Xiao Ting blinked. At that time, she switched this thing. She originally thought this thing looked old and maybe a treasure map, so she kept it. Unexpectedly, Jiu Wangye fancied this thing. Just what is this?
“This is a treasure handed down from my family and can’t be given to you.” Seeing Jiu Wangye look like he wanted it, Xiao Ting acted immediately.
Watching her stingily snatch the sheepskin scroll, YuChi XinHan wanted to pat her on the forehead.
This ability to tell lies with your eyes wide open is really big, and she still covets money. She must have seen that this thing was valuable, so she didn’t want to hand it over.
And she’s still talking nonsense at this point, what guarantee does she have?
“This is what Xiao Guifei was framed to have stolen.” Jiu Wangye didn’t grab it, but let her hold it tightly before lightly saying that.
The meaning was obvious. Only by handing this thing over can your Aunt’s wrongs be washed away.
It’s a pity that Xiao Ting’s thoughts deviated once again.
Nani, Xiao Ting looked back at the Guifei in surprise.
“Aunt, do you know what this is? Is it valuable?”
Xiao Guifei shook her head, “I have never seen this thing before.”
Xiao Ting looked at Jiu Wangye again with hopeful eyes. She seemed to want to hear it from Jiu Wangye. What is this amazing treasure?
Then she could flourish.
It’s a pity that things went the opposite as Jiu Wangye made a casual move to take the sheepskin scroll, then walked forward step by step.
“That’s mine. Why are you like this, stealing my things?”
Xiao Ting expressed dissatisfaction, but she could only mutter in a low voice. She also knew that Jiu Wangye had never let her down.
Jiu Wangye returned the sheepskin scroll to the Emperor, their eyes meeting from time to time. Finally, the Emperor took the sheepskin scroll before getting up.
“Zhen just said that if you hand over this map, zhen will spare you the death penalty. From now on, you will stay in this YaoChi Palace!”
The Emperor looked at Xiao Guifei and only said this before getting up, and leaving. Everyone was left staring at each other.
Jiu Wangye nodded to Xu Zhi.
“XinHan, send benwang‘s wangfei back home.”
After speaking, Jiu Wangye followed the Emperor and left.
This kind of protracted plot started with countless entanglements and interferences in the middle before ending in a sudden reversal. It’s a little unacceptable for everyone.
They didn’t understand what just happened.
But they all understood that the sheepskin scroll was very relevant and they’re eager to figure out what it is.
As for the Xiao clan, no one mentioned it at all. The Emperor also didn’t say anything, so the Empress Dowager couldn’t make an order to punish the family directly. In the end, they were let go.
Because compared to them, the Empress Dowager was more curious about one thing. What exactly is the map that Xiao Ting handed over? Where does it point?
In the blink of an eye, the crowd left YaoChi Palace, leaving silence and desolation.
In response to the Empress Dowager’s decree, most of the palace maids left, leaving only a few to serve Xiao Guifei.
YaoChi Palace has become a veritable cold Palace.
Everyone in this place understood that Xiao Guifei was beaten into the cold Palace.
In her lifetime, there’d be no chance of a comeback.
When Jiu Wangye ordered him, YuChi XinHan directly tapped Xiao Ting’s acupuncture points for safety measures and took her out of the Palace.
Hong Shao and Lu You also took the two little ones and returned to Jiu Wangfu.
Xiao Ting was anxious. Even on the carriage, she kept yelling at YuChi XinHan, but she couldn’t move her body and could only talk.
They didn’t return to the Mansion this time but went straight back to Jiu Wangfu where Housekeeper Mu had been waiting at the door for a long time.
He greeted Xiao Ting and the others with joy, as if he didn’t see her not being able to move, and even when Xiao Ting called out to him, he only smiled.
Like he picked up gold ingots.
An hour later, Xiao Ting’s acupuncture points were automatically unlocked.
The first thing she did was to get up and run. YuChi XinHan, who stood outside the door, stretched out a leg to stop her.
“A’Li said that until he comes back, you can’t go anywhere. You can only stay here obediently.”
Xiao Ting stretched her foot and directly kicked him, “This miss wants to go out, do you dare beat me?”
“I’m going to see my Aunt. The Emperor doing this is equivalent to putting my Aunt in the Cold Palace. I’m going to see her.”
“And my daddy, how is he?”
Looking at anxious Xiao Ting, YuChi XinHan fought back and asked the other incredulously.
“You were in the main hall just now, the heroine who is so majestic that you didn’t care about life and death as you confronted the Empress Dowager and the Emperor like that. I thought you’re not afraid of death, so why are you thinking of their safety just now?”
YuChi XinHan found it a bit funny, but in YaoChi Palace, everyone’s thoughts were very complicated.
At that time, Xiao Guifei’s answer made it clear that she wanted to die and that she could be charged with any crime. No one could understand how what she said was false.
And the Empress Dowager even found so many people to testify. Even if she didn’t die now, afraid she’ll really have to spend her days in the Cold Palace.
Even if the Emperor liked her again, she can never regain her previous glory.
After all, the Palace is the coldest and most merciless place in the world.
Xiao Ting was fuming at YuChi XinHan. It’s a pity that her average skills didn’t give her an advantage at all, so she could only ask YuChi XinHan how Xiao Zhan and the others are.
YuChi XinHan said, “This young master has always been with you, so you know where I went. Just obediently wait for your man to come back here.”
YuChi XinHan felt that if Jiu Wangye didn’t come back, he would go mad.
This Xiao Ting’s ability to toss people is truly great. He was tired enough to die after rushing back for a few days, and he still got caught up with the things in the Palace. Now that he finally returned to Jiu Wangfu, A’Li still wanted him to look after this little witch.
Climbing the window? Going over the wall?
No, those are child’s play. This Sixth Miss Xiao wouldn’t do that since she didn’t want to make things easier.
She freaking threw a tantrum!
YuChi XinHan’s desire to kill was gone.
Harassed for an hour, Jiu Wangye, the savior, finally arrived as scheduled.
YuChi XinHan didn’t even want to say anything to him. He patted Jiu Wangye on the shoulder then instantly slipped away.
“Wangye, you’re back?”
Xiao Ting eagerly asked upon seeing Jiu Wangye. She rushed over and raised her small face.
“Look for benwang if you have something to ask.”
Jiu Wangye said when they walked inside.
Xiao Ting followed behind him like a little tail, step by step.
“Yeah, you haven’t told me what happened yet. Does Aunt like another man? Did my Aunt marry the Emperor after that man died?”
“Why did Aunt want to leave the Palace? She never told me.”
“Is there another map? What does Aunt want a map for? Is the map you took from me pointing to a treasure?”
Xiao Ting had countless questions in her mind and she asked them all.
Jiu Wangye walked to the main seat and sat down. At this time, Hong Shao came in from outside, holding the teapot.
Xiao Ting quickly took it and gave her a wink to go down. Then she poured a cup of tea for Jiu Wangye, and looked at him eagerly, hoping that he would answer her doubts.
But Jiu Wangye didn’t say a word and simply drank the tea he received from her.
