Chapter 322: Big-game Hunting (1)
After a while, her ears perked up. She quickly kept everything away and shot Jin Yun a glance—Someone is here!
That person paused at the door for a moment before asking, “Is my lord well?”
At this moment, the door opened. It was Jin Yun who was standing there with a straight face. His body was covered in a thin layer of silk, and inconcealable marks were left on his body. Both his eyes were blank as if he had given in to fate.
“The duke is asleep. He told me to hand you this and to tell you to do something.”
That person was stunned. He accepted the token and said, “Where are the people who were on duty earlier?”
Jin Yun sneered. “Sent away. What, does the duke need your permission to do things?”
When he saw that person hesitating, Jin Yun moved aside impatiently. “If you do not believe me, you may ask him yourself.”
Then, lethargically, he retreated to the side and leaned on the door frame.
“This servant does not dare!”
When that person heard him say that, he was much more convinced, and he began to settle down.
“What does his lord require of this servant?”
Without even looking at it, Jin Yun muttered, “It’s nothing much. He wants you to find my great Father Emperor and to tell him that the horse exchange is void.”
“What?” There seemed to be some hesitance on that rough-looking face. He wondered in his heart, this was clearly something they agreed to, so why did he suddenly change his mind?
As he thought more about it, he took a glance at Jin Yun. Has his lord’s new lover said something to him that caused him to be infuriated with the emperor?
Jin Yun looked coldly at him. “Is there a problem?”
“No, this servant will go now!”
“Remember! You must only speak of this to Father Emperor!”
Jin Sheng was extremely displeased when he was dragged out from the land of dreams. But when he heard that it was Lu Cha, he still received them. And in the end, when he heard what he said, he was instantly enraged!
“What is the meaning of this! Your duke has agreed to the terms, so why did he suddenly change his mind?!”
For the sake of a good cooperation, he had even sent his own son to his bed. Does he want to go back on his word even after finishing his meal?
But he was too lazy to deal with a servant right now. Huffing in anger, he rushed to Xingyun Palace.
Jin Yun had already dressed up at this time, and Gong Yimo had also pulled down the curtains so the people outside could not see the situation inside.
At the very least, when Jin Sheng entered, the only thing he saw were two figures behind the curtains. He came in alone, and he was furious.
“What is the meaning of this?”
But he never would have expected that Jin Yun would be the one to answer him. Step by step, he walked out from behind the curtains. He looked at Jin Sheng, and his eyes were burning with rage!
“Father Emperor! It is exactly what it sounds like. Lu Cha feels that trading his horses away like this was too much of a loss, so he wishes to change the deal!”
Jin Yun’s appearance caused Jin Sheng to step back in guilt. Also, Jin Yun’s current appearance truly was frightening. His eyes were burning with the flames of both fury and hate! Just like a vengeful ghost that had crawled out from hell, coming to take his life!
When he saw the perverse marks on his bare chest, Jin Sheng quickly turned his head away. He said to the person on the bed, “Change the deal?! Impossible! It can only be the horses. Also, they have to be war horses! Otherwise, there is nothing more to talk about!”
Jin Yun laughed coldly. “So Father Emperor has truly given me away in exchange for horses? Shameless!”
His words were like a slap, striking straight across Jin Sheng’s face!
He raged, “What do you know?! It should be your honor to contribute to your country! Didn’t you just sleep with a man? What’s wrong with that? You were born of such vileness to begin with!”
Jin Sheng’s words carved through Jin Yun with pain! It felt like someone had just split apart his chest with a blade!
At this moment, Lu Cha’s voice was suddenly emitted from behind the curtains!
“Yun’er, do not be rude.”
This voice caused Jin Yun to jump in fright. He was out of it as he stood there for a moment. Was…Was this Gong Yimo’s voice?
