Xiao Zhonghua said coldly, “Do you want me to rebel?”
MO Guiyuan smiled and said, “Doesn’t Your Highness want to sit on the throne? Or does Your Highness think that as long as you work hard enough, you can successfully ascend the throne? I don’t have to remind Your Highness how biased your father is, right?”
Xiao Zhonghua’s eyes flickered as he calmly asked, “Your vault is gone, and the Medicine Master is dead. What bargaining chip do you have to help me ascend the throne?”
MO Guiyuan was not embarrassed at all.
He smiled wantonly and gestured at Slave Xiu.
Slave Xiu opened the bag he carried with him and took out a brocade box.
MO Guiyuan smiled meaningfully and said, “Your Highness, please take a look.” Jing Yi opened the brocade box.
When Xiao Zhonghua saw what was in the box, his expression instantly changed.
It was a bright yellow imperial edict!
Xiao Zhonghua planned to pick up the imperial edict to see what was written on it, but Slave Xiu moved his hand and grabbed the box.
Jing Yi frowned and pulled out his sword.
“Jing Yi.” Xiao Zhonghua stopped him and stared at MO Guiyuan with a burning gaze. “Sect Master MO, what do you mean by this?”
“Of course, it’s my sincerity,” MO Guiyuan said with a faint smile. “Before the late emperor passed away, he left an imperial edict and established a new king, and that new king is not the father of the Third Prince.”
Xiao Zhonghua’s expression did not change. “Do you think I’ll believe you?”
MO Guiyuan looked up and smiled. “Your Highness, you can take a gamble. Once I make this imperial edict public, Your Highness should understand the consequences, right?”
Xiao Zhonghua’s eyes turned cold. “Are you threatening me?”
MO Guiyuan smiled and said, “I’m negotiating sincerely with the Third Prince so the Third Prince can consider the pros and cons.”
Xiao Zhonghua mocked, “You make threats and promises sound so dignified. Sect Master MO is indeed someone who can preach with his mouth. You don’t even dare to show me the contents of the imperial edict. How can I believe you?”
MO Guiyuan said seriously, “I can guarantee you that the contents of the imperial edict are true.”
Xiao Zhonghua said word by word, “I don’t believe you.”
MO Guiyuan’s smile faded. “It seems that the Third Prince doesn’t want to negotiate.”
Xiao Zhonghua said neither servile nor overbearing, “The peace talks between the Imperial Court and the White Lotus Society are not at the mercy of the White Lotus Society. I will report everything you say to me today to my father truthfully.”
MO Guiyuan looked at Xiao Zhonghua deeply. “Your Highness, you’re narrowing your path. Your brother is still in my hands. Aren’t you afraid that you won’t be able to absolve yourself of the blame if anything happens to him?”
Xiao Zhonghua said calmly, “Sect Master MO, why didn’t you ask where General Leng went?”
MO Guiyuan paused.
Xiao Zhonghua returned a meaningful look. “Sect Master MO, are you trying to say that the people of the Imperial Court can’t find the place where you imprisoned the hostages? Actually, Sect Master MO can also take a gamble. Once my brother is saved, the Imperial Court will never negotiate with the White Lotus Society again. I advise Sect Master MO to draw up a contract with the Imperial Court as soon as possible before my brother arrives at the palace so that he can save his life.”
“They’re fighting! They’re fighting! They’re fighting!” The cries of the five tigers came from outside the house.
MO Guiyuan strode out.
In the courtyard, the Old Marquis and the First Elder fought.
“That’s my parrot!” the Great Elder said coldly.
“Nonsense!” the Old Marquis said bluntly.
The Great Elder gritted his teeth and was about to use his qinggong to catch the Wuhu when the Old Marquis grabbed his ankle and pulled him down ruthlessly.
The two of them fought fiercely over a parrot.
MO Guiyuan shouted, “Stop!”
The Great Elder stopped unwillingly.
The Old Marquis punched him!
The Great Elder staggered a few times and looked at him in disbelief. The Old Marquis said righteously, “The Third Prince didn’t ask me to stop.”
He was not from the White Lotus Society, so he did not have to listen to MO
The Great Elder was furious and pounced over to fight him again.
MO Guiyuan glanced around. The Leng family was indeed gone. He called a disciple over. “Where’s General Leng?”
The disciple said, “They said that the jade pendant fell. They brought people out to look for it. They’ll be back soon.”
In the past, MO Guiyuan would definitely not believe that Leng Tiannan could find the hostage he was holding. However, things had gone beyond his control again and again. He did not show it on his face, but he was actually a little flustered.
He turned around and looked coldly at Xiao Zhonghua.
Xiao Zhonghua sat in his seat and slowly picked up his teacup, smiling at him determinedly.
Killing intent flashed across MO Guiyuan’s eyes.
Xiao Zhonghua said steadily, “Sect Master MO, do you want to capture me? I’m an envoy sent by the Imperial Court to negotiate. If you dare to touch me, you’re openly going against the Imperial Court. Our Imperial Court would have a good reason for sending troops. In a few days, we can break through the peach forest of the White Lotus Society!”
This was different from the nature of the White Lotus Society’s capture of Xiao Duye. Xiao Duye had barged in himself and entered someone’s house to start a massacre. Who else could he arrest but him?
Xiao Zhonghua was gambling that MO Guiyuan still had a trump card that had not been revealed. MO Guiyuan would not fall out at this moment.
MO Guiyuan left coldly.
He had won the bet.
Only he and Jing Yi were left in the room.
His back was covered in cold sweat as he negotiated with MO Guiyuan. He seemed calm, but in fact, every step he took was on the tip of a knife.
“Jing Yi, can you defeat that person just now?”
“I can’t beat him,” Jing Yi said honestly.
“If we can’t do it openly, we’ll do it in the dark,” Xiao Zhonghua said. “Steal the imperial edict back.”
Jing Yi asked strangely, “Didn’t Cousin say that the imperial edict was fake?”
Xiao Zhonghua sighed. “The imperial edict in the box is fake, but I’m afraid… MO Guiyuan does have a real imperial edict.”
If MO Guiyuan flew into a rage out of humiliation and killed him, it would mean that MO Guiyuan was at his wits’ end.
However, MO Guiyuan left just like that, which meant that he still had a true trump card—the previous emperor’s imperial edict.
Jing Yi asked, “If the previous emperor didn’t appoint His Majesty as the emperor, who did he appoint?”
Xiao Zhonghua narrowed his eyes and said, “King Nanyang.”
After MO Guiyuan left the courtyard, he instructed the First Elder, “Move the hostages.”
The Great Elder asked in confusion, “Sect Master, why did you suddenly move the hostages? Could it be that… we’ve been discovered? That shouldn’t be…”
MO Guiyuan did not explain. “Anyway, let’s move them first.”
“Yes,” the First Elder agreed and immediately brought people to the secret room where Xiao Duye and Leng Rui were imprisoned.
Leng Tiannan, who was hiding in the dark, walked out and said to Leng Zhiruo and the two deputy generals, “Follow!”
On the other side, the Old Marquis and Wei Ting were also preparing to set off.
The Old Marquis looked at Wei Ting, who was ready to leave, and asked with a complicated expression, “Are you sure you want to do this? After all, he’s you…”
“I’ve been waiting for this day for a long time. I still can’t forget that my grandfather’s head and corpse were hung on the city tower. I took them off and stitched them up one by one. The corpse was frozen into ice and broke many needles, but I can’t wait for them to melt completely, because it will immediately rot and can’t be stitched up again.”
He told all of this calmly.
The young man in the past knelt in the snow with the frozen corpse and head. He had already cried till his tears were dry for the rest of his life.
“I’ve fought Slave Xiu. Slave Xiu seems to have recovered, but he’s actually still a little short. If you want to kill MO Guiyuan, now is the best time!” The Old Marquis said seriously, “Alright! I’ll take MO Guiyuan’s life tonight!”
