Chapter 11 – Your Highness Must Not Look Again
At this moment he suddenly heard a rumbling noise behind him. When he turned around, he saw that it was the Qin Palace’s roof beam that had collapsed in the large fire.
The flame suddenly leaped up high into the night sky and red light was reflected in the eyes of the people present.
Only Zhu Feng’s eyes remained ice cold and pitch black. He looked at this scene, then turned over to the Hall of Union and Peace. The building which had been engulfed earlier in a large fire, had now turned into flat land. After returning to his previous spot, Zhu Feng coldly commanded.
“Gather them all together, lock them up, and wait for my orders before dealing with them!”
The soldiers responded hastily and came forward to drive all the people out. Among the soldiers, one made a meaningful glance at Zhu Feng and went towards him.
“Your Highness, what about her…”
He pointed at Nan Yan while asking.
Nan Yan also turned towards him. Zhu Feng was in silence only for a while, then simply stated.
“Look for a room, then lock her up.”
The soldier promptly advanced, but did not act the same way the other soldiers treated the harem members. Not touching her at all, he told Nan Yan.
Nan Yan was at a loss, however this time she had no other choice. She lowered her head and followed the soldier.
He Yi watched their figures leaving until their backs disappeared within the dim light. Only then did he softly laugh.
Zhu Feng coldly looked at him.
“What is so funny?”
“Since it is nothing, laugh less.”
Having said that, He Yi’s smiling expression also vanished quickly. However that pair of gentle eyes remained, showing a slight smile within his eyes. After all, he has been with Zhu Feng for several years now. Regarding the violent and even somewhat cold blooded temperament of His Highness, He Yi was extremely familiar with it.
Just now, the young lady that had acted recklessly, the words she had said in front of him obviously had some effect. Otherwise, Zhu Feng would have already killed her with his sword. For what other reason would she still be surviving?
It was even more impossible for him to make the soldier ‘look for a room’ to lock her up in. Obviously there was some other meaning to it.
In other words, it was interesting and fascinating.
Because he knew that Zhu Feng was cold blooded, he feared that he would force his way into the Imperial City and kill until a river flowing with blood formed. Before Zhu Feng had used his personal soldiers, He Yi had tried to give a lot of advice and dissuade His Highness. Even Yan Wangfei also repeatedly urged him not too. However, when night came, there were still corpses across the field. Just a moment ago, it was peaceful. It is very likely that among those people that were taken away, no one would survive.
That young lady’s words however, unexpectedly let those people survive.
He Yi cannot help but to look back again. Even though her back had long ago already disappeared into the night.
At this moment from the side, he heard Zhu Feng coldly speak.
“What are you doing here?”
He Yi looked back, smiling.
“I heard His Highness had sent people everywhere, and completely overturned the palace looking for The Emperor’s whereabouts.”
“Did His Highness find him?”
“He Yi, are you joking with this Prince?”
Zhu Feng coldly stated.
“You should be very clear on the fact that if tonight they cannot find him, how the actions of this night will have a great influence on this Prince.
He Yi spoke up then.
“It is just like that girl said, I’m afraid that if His Highness stays——–”
When Zhu Feng coldly shot a glance at him, He Yi did not say anymore.
Indeed, if The Emperor was not found, then tonight’s actions was exactly a complete armed rebellion. No matter whether Zhu Feng killed or did not kill those people, being able to wash away his bad reputation was uncertain.
He Yi was silent for a moment, then he spoke up.
”Actually, this poor Daoist came over to advise His Highness’s on something.”
“What is it?”
“The Emperor, you must never look for him again!”
