Chapter 6: This Prince Asks You a Question
She subconsciously moved two steps forward and her eyes immediately widened with astonishment.
The unexpected people were all harem attendants, some young palace eunuchs and palace maids. In addition, there were some familiar faces. No one else. It was exactly the same women that entered the palace with her. These few First Class Female Attendants, they all lived together in the Eastern Garden Courtyard.
All of them without exception were endlessly dismayed. There was even some people who were frightened and weeping endlessly. They clung together in groups of two or three. They were rushed here by several palace guards armed with swords. A single guard stepped forward and said:
“Your Majesty, these people are from the Emperor’s harem, your subordinate has caught them all at last. So long as you inquire they will certainly know the Emperor’s whereabouts.”
Nan Yan’s heart suddenly jumped.
Zhu Feng’s face also sank, he slowly stepped forward and the harem’s people shivered and continuously retreated as if they had seen a god.
Everyone saw that he had a sword in his hand and blood was still dripping from the point.
Zhu Feng scanned over and through the people, then coldly said:
“Where is the Emperor?”
Not even one person answered him.
Zhu Feng’s voice did not fluctuate and he asked again:
“Where is the Emperor?”
Still, no one spoke.
This time Nan Yan’s heart suddenly felt a slight trace of uneasiness. Because she could clearly see the back of Zhu Feng’s hand holding the sword and blue veins had suddenly and violently risen up. This is the manner in which he brandished his sword before he injected power into his strike. Just a moment ago in the Qin Palace, she saw it.
The next moment, she saw the sword in his hand suddenly lift up high. Even before anyone had time to recovered their wits, it turned into a cold light, swiping forward before scattering.
Soon a miserable shriek was heard, a young palace eunuch fell to the ground.
Blood sprayed out; dying her vision red.
Suddenly the crowd screamed in horror. Several people, while still alive felt like they were scared to death and fainted. The rest of the people without exception knelt down in fear:
“Your Highness, Yan Wang spare our lives.”
“Please! Please spare our lives!”
Zhu Feng had just advanced forward, just before he attacked and killed a single man, but now his voice was as serene as if nothing had happened. Saying: “this prince may ask again and again, only the next time this prince asks you a question. I will also kill a man!”
“The Emperor, where is The Emperor?”
The people standing in front of her had already been scared out of their wits. Nan Yan looked at where the little eunuch had fallen on the ground, and immediately recognized that it was Shun’er. Who was serving them in the Eastern Garden Courtyard. But at the age of seventeen or eighteen years, his face was always smiling every day.
But now, he has fallen there and is already ice cold.
Nan Yan’s body also felt like ice.
Just at that moment, within the crowd there was a sudden sharp sound scrapping people’s ears with an extremely piercing voice. Loudly the voice stated:
“Your Highness, spare our lives. That person, she knows where The Emperor is. Your Highness ask her!”
Nan Yan listened to the sound of the voice and found it somewhat familiar. Raising her head she saw that it was not someone else, but it was First Class Female Attendant Li who entered the palace at the same time as her.
She was standing in front of the crowd, Shun’er was dead, Zhu Feng was facing her.
And at the moment, as she spoke, she raised her hand and Nan Yan saw the direction her finger was pointed. Nan Yan was positive that it was pointed towards herself!
