Behind her, Fulan coldly remarked: “What kind of important thing did Wangye give her that she looks really pleased with herself?”
Xia Yunting was silent for a moment, then softly said: “Stop talking, let’s go.”
When Nan Yan arrived at the entrance of the Jian Fu, it was already in chaos.
Yan Wang’s soldiers surrounded the place, each of them holding a sword, making the people around absolutely frightened. But this was not really scary. What was even more frightening was that a large group of scholars were sitting quietly at the door of the Jian Fu. Unexpectedly, there gathered several hundreds of scholars.
These were all Jian Tongguang’s students. They heard that Yan Wang wanted to punish the Ten Clans of Jian, in which the students were also counted as part of the Ten Clans. Since that was the case, they decided to come over together with Jian Tongguang to meet their death.
The people around them all came over to enjoy the bustling scene.
Seeing that the situation had became more and more serious, Ye Zheng said with a low voice to Nan Yan when she walked past: “Miss Si Nan Yan, you have to be careful! The Jian family’s whole life is…”
When he came to it, Ye Zheng couldn’t say it.
Nan Yan’s mood was also heavy. She nodded and turned towards the doorway of the Jian Fu and knocked.
It was soon opened by someone. Looking up, it was the Jian’s second young master, Jian Ruocheng.
When he saw it was Nan Yan, he was stunned.
“Miss Si ?”
Nan Yan greeted him politely.
“Jian gongzi, I… I have something to tell Old Master Jian.”
Jian Ruocheng only hesitated for a moment before opening the door widely and let her in. When the scholars outside saw his figure, they immediately dashed at him, but the officers and soldiers obstructed them. Then, Jian Ruocheng told them: “All of you do not need to worry, please go back.”
At the end, the door was once again closed.
It was noisy outside, but in the Jian Fu, it was a bit quiet. It seemed as if nothing had happened. Turning around behind her, Nan Yan said apologetically: “Jian gongzi, I didn’t expect our visit yesterday to cause you so much trouble. I am very sorry about that.”
Jian Ruocheng laughed at her words and faintly smiled.
“This is not your decision. Why are you feeling sorry ?”
All the people here knew that their Jian family was facing a imminent great catastrophe. But this second young master was still very indifferent, as if it had nothing to do with him.
He made a gesture and walked alongside Nan Yan.
The road went inwards, with both sides filled with lush green bamboo, and the bamboo leaves were condensed with morning dew. If not for the current pressing major event of life and death, Nan Yan really liked and wanted to just sit down and enjoy the intoxicatingly elegant scenery.
As they was walking, Jian Ruocheng suddenly spoke up: “By the way, what do you have to say to Father ?”
“His Royal Highness has let me come to reprimand Old Master Jian.”
“Oh? How do you want to reprimand him ?”
Nan Yan hesitated for a moment, then whispered those words out.
She thought that, as the Jian’s second young master, he would be furious to hear those words. Who knew that this Jian Ruocheng would be very calm as if nothing had happened. Thus continuing on, Nan Yan said softly: “Second Young Master Jian, I —”
Seeing that they were already at the lobby, Jian Ruocheng turned back and smiled at her.
“No harm, since it is His Highness Yan Wang who wants you to reprimand my father, then please come in.”
Nan Yan was somewhat surprised, but at this time it was too late to say anything. They went to the front of the hall.
As soon as she looked up, she found that the hall was full of people and also clan families.
In addition to the old and thin Old Master Jian Tongguang, whom she had seen yesterday, in the chair next to him sat a tall black robed gongzi. His appearance was similar to that of Jian Ruocheng.
Behind him were Madam Jiahe and Xiao Zhi.
There were also some servants on both sides, who were all gathered in the hall.
Nan Yan was embarrassed and did not say anything for a while. When Old Master Jian saw her, he said: “What? Has the order come ? This old man has been waiting for it, lead the way !”
