Chapter 7: She Was Not Wearing Anything
Everyone suddenly noticed the person standing behind Yan Wang Zhu Feng. They all then realized that person to be First Class Female Attendant Si Nan Yan, who had been called to serve at the Qin Palace this night. The strange thing is that she had a pitch black, blood stained cloak on her body. But it seemed to not be hers.
Moreover, her feet were also wholly and completely exposed. She seemed like…
She seemed like she was not wearing anything!
Everyone’s heart was feeling somewhat anxious. However, they were also not capable of attending to this problem at this time. Promptly, someone began to chime in “It’s her! Your Majesty, she knows! She knows!”
“That’s right. She was going to serve The Emperor tonight. The Emperor should be somewhere; she would definitely know.” Everyone started pitching in.
“Your Majesty, you must kill her!”
For a moment, these people had without exception bellowed their grievances. Unexpectedly wanting Yan Wang to kill her, so Nan Yan could not help but knit her brows.
Even though she was also a First Class Female Attendant, she did not stay on the right side of everyone and keep good terms with everyone at the expense of her principles. Nan Yan had long known that the harem formed factions to seek connections with those of a higher status in this manner. These concubines had come from very different backgrounds. Some of them were from official families, some of them their families either had influence or outstanding appearances and beautiful long-sleeved dances.
[TLN:long sleeves help one dance beautifully, similar to how money and power will help you in any occupation].
After entering the palace and having the ability to nimbly work their way from the bottom to the top with appropriately high bribes, they were chosen as First Class Female Attendants and managed to climb up the social ladder. Due to having more palace maids and court eunuchs fawn over them, a few small circles had naturally formed among the First Class Female Attendants.
It was granted that First Class Female Attendant Li was included among the inner factions.
Nan Yan was not interested in such things. What was more unexpected is that she did not want to draw attention to herself. However, her appearance was still outstanding in a crowd. In addition to not having many friends at her side, it was also hard to avoid attracting enmity. This was especially so with First Class Female Attendant Li. Quite a few times, she had tried to find trouble for her. It seemed that without anyone lending her a hand, Nan Yan had almost suffered losses several times thanks to her.
However, Nan Yan had not anticipated that at this time she was unexpectedly willing to point the finger at her.
They really wanted to kill her!
Zhu Feng turned his head and glanced at her.
Nan Yan looked into his eyes, and for a moment she trembled. Just as she felt like saying something. She saw that Zhu Feng was already turning his head and suddenly the sword in his hand was violently brandished.
This time, even the horrible shriek was not heard; merely the sound of blood splattering from the body. First Class Female Attendant Li fell to the ground with a plop! Her eyes opened wide, her mouth silently screaming in horror.
She did not dare to believe it till she died. Yan Wang had actually killed her!
All the people were so scared that they could not even let out a single sound. Their throats felt like it was blocked and their hands trembled. Zhu Feng said coldly “This Prince wants to know The Emperor’s whereabouts.”
After he spoke, he lifted his sword that was dripping with blood and pointed it towards the person in front of him “Where is The Emperor?”
For a while, nobody dared to speak.
Their silence, however, simply hastened them towards their end. Zhu Feng moved forward step by step and coldly said “It seems that you people truly are tired of living.”
“Since it is this way, then this Prince can only help you.”
After that, he clenched the sword in his hand. The previous spillings of blood had excited his senses, causing both his eyes to turn red. The addicting, bloodthirsty delight of killing had always made his blood boil.
However, the next moment, he heard a delicate and weak voice ring out behind him…
“They probably will not survive. However, Your Majesty, I’m afraid that you also cannot kill them.”
