East Palace.

As soon as Xie Chaoling sat down, someone came in to report that King Ke had come to see him.

He got up, walked to the window, looked out, and could see Xie Chaoyuan standing at the steps outside the hall from a distance, and that person was also looking up at him. Xie Chaoling quickly dodged behind a wall to not let the outsider see.

“Your Highness?” Liao Zhi saw his reaction and asked hesitantly.

There was a fleeting embarrassment in Xie Chaoling’s expression, he coughed lightly, and ordered: “Let him in.”

Xie Chaoyuan entered the door, did not greet him, and stared straight into Xie Chaoling’s eyes: “I have something to say to His Royal Highness alone, please Your Highness ask these people to retreat.”

Xie Chaoling ordered people to come up with refreshments, and smiled lightly: “Sixth Brother, sit down.”

Xie Chaoyuan did not move, and still said the same words bluntly: “Please, Your Highness, ask all the people in this palace to retreat. “

Liao Zhi couldn’t help frowning when he heard that. Sixth Highness was too rude, this is the East Palace, how can he be so presumptuous.

Xie Chaoyuan took a step forward, and his tone was even colder: “If His Royal Highness doesn’t mind being heard about things that can’t be heard, I don’t mind just saying it.”

Xie Chaoling finally signaled to Liao Zhi: “Take the people outside.”

There was no one else in the hall, but Xie Chaoling still had the standard spring breeze smile on his face: “Sixth brother, sit down.”

Xie Chaoyuan looked at him coldly.

Xie Chaoling was helpless: “Sixth brother, do you think that my East Palace doesn’t treat guests well and refuse to show face?”

After a long while, Xie Chaoyuan stepped forward, lifted the lid of the teacup on the table, took a look, then picked up a piece of dimsum, threw it into his mouth and chewed it, all the while staring at the person in front of him: “The ambergris incense that is in the palace, Your Royal Highness, is too pungent. Although this tea is good tea, it tastes bitter, and this dessert, what’s the point of tasting it if it’s neither salty nor bland? Your Royal Highness really likes these?”

Xie Chaoling’s smile remained unchanged: “That’s why sixth brother came here specially? To pick thorns?”

Xie Chaoyuan took out his jade pendant and put it down, and asked, “Does Your Highness recognize this?”

Xie Chaoling glanced at it: “Thank you, sixth brother, for helping me get it back.”

“This is what this king found in the burnt tomb yesterday and picked it up.” Xie Chaoyuan reminded him.

Xie Chaoling said calmly: “I accidentally dropped this when I fled from the temple in a hurry. It must have been picked up by someone with bad intentions and deliberately placed in the mausoleum in order to frame sixth younger brother and King Xing. Fortunately, Royal father is wise enough to distinguish right from wrong to prevent them from succeeding.”

Xie Chaoyuan grabbed his wrist suddenly, grabbed him from the couch, breathed closely, and said hoarsely: “Crown Prince Older Brother is very capable, you are not guilty of talking nonsense with your eyes open. This king was too confident and underestimated you. “

He didn’t sleep all night, his eye bags were black and blue, and his eyes were bloodshot.

Xie Chaoling frowned slightly: “King Ke’s words, I don’t understand it very well? Could it be that King Ke is suffering from hysteria just like King Xun? I just returned to the palace yesterday, today King Xun made trouble, and now King Ke suddenly came to the East Palace to pick on me. You guys are so unreasonable.”

Xie Chaoling’s wrist was pinched with red marks. He lifted his chin lightly, and his tone was still calm: “Sixth brother, let go. If I invite someone to come in, things will not be good now .”

“Is what King Xun said true or false?” Xie Chaoyuan insisted on asking.

Xie Chaoling’s eyes flickered: “King Xun is crazy, talking nonsense and angering father, so it’s not true.”

“So where did Your Highness the Crown Prince go these past few months?”

“I already said it before. I was chased and hid in a temple, and was almost burned to death. I just returned to the capital yesterday.”

Xie Chaoyuan gripped Xie Chaoling even tighter, and gritted his teeth: “Say it again.”

I have been fleeing for my life, and I just escaped back to the capital yesterday.” Xie Chaoling looked back at him calmly, “I have never been to King Ke’s mansion, and if King Ke also suffers from hysteria, it is better to call the imperial doctor quickly.”

Xie Chaoyuan stared at him, eyes furious, his body was filled with uncontrollable hostility, and he stretched out his hand to push Xie Chaoling down on the couch. Xie Chaoling didn’t have time to react, and was pressed down hard.

“What on earth do you want to do?” Xie Chaoling frowned, “This is the East Palace, as long as I call someone in, you would be committing a crime and oppressing the crown prince, father will not let you go.”

Xie Chaoyuan sneered contemptuously: “Committing a crime and bullying the crown prince has happened quite a few times, so I don’t care about this one more time.”

…He was so angry that he vomited blood yesterday, but he still had the strength today.

Xie Chaoling closed his eyes and opened them again, raised his hand abruptly, his elbow hitting Xie Chaoyuan’s heart vigorously, and then he rolled to the side, avoiding Xie Chaoyuan’s shackles, immediately got up and shouted: “Someone come here!”

Xie Chaoyuan was escorted by the guards of the East Palace to kneel. He raised his crimson eyes, and looked at Xie Chaoling who was looking down at him from a higher height in front of him.

“You’ve made enough trouble.” Xie Chaoling’s tone contained impatience.

Xie Chaoyuan’s eyes showed sarcasm, and he swallowed a hoarse voice: “Crown Prince Brother is really ruthless, impressive.”

This person said he would not lie to him, but he still lied to him.

In order to escape from him smoothly, he was given medicine to make him powerless to stop him, and even chose the cruelest way to burn his Linlang to death.

From the very beginning, he shouldn’t be soft-hearted, and shouldn’t ask for people’s hearts that he can’t obtain.

“Understanding sixth brother is young and ignorant, I will not pick on today’s matter regarding you, just withdraw.”

Xie Chaoling turned his eyes away and didn’t look at him again.

The guard let go of him. Xie Chaoyuan got up slowly, looked at Xie Chaoling, and said every word: “Unless you kill me, you can’t escape.”

Xie Chaoling was startled.

It wasn’t until Xie Chaoyuan left that Xie Chaoling came back to his senses in a daze, rubbed his red wrist that was pinched, and let out a soft “hiss”.

You little b*stard, you’re so ruthless.

Liao Zhi, who was about to say something at the side, lowered his head silently. His Royal Highness being like this… seemed normal.

Xie Chaoyuan stood silently at the foot of the main hall of the East Palace for a long time, then walked out step by step.

When leaving the East Palace, he bumped into Li Huan who was about to enter.

Li Huan hastily made way, but Xie Chaoyuan didn’t move, his dark eyes fell on his face.

Li Huan didn’t look up, but secretly clenched his fists. When His Royal Highness King Ke finally stepped away, he slumped his shoulders and breathed a sigh of relief.

After entering the door, Li Huan greeted Xie Chaoling excitedly, but Xie Chaoling looked very cold when he saw him, there was no smile on his face. Li Huan leaned forward, Xie Chaoling didn’t call him, and he didn’t dare to move, cold sweat was faintly oozing from his forehead.

After waiting for a while, Xie Chaoling finally said in a cold voice: “From now on, don’t come here again to the East Palace.”

Li Huan raised his head suddenly in disbelief: “Your Highness!”

Xie Chaoling’s expression was cold, and there was no warmth in his eyes. He was not joking.

Li Huan knelt down on both knees: “Your Highness, why…”

“You know why in your heart,” Xie Chaoling said, “What did I tell you that day? I asked you to take care of Princess Shurou more, lest someone take advantage of Chief Shen’s death and the decline of the family to cause trouble.”

Li Huan argued anxiously: “It is my fault that I failed His Highness’s trust, but how can I have the power to deal with the Shen matter, I…”

“How dare you argue!”

Xie Chaoling’s face turned sullen: “Do you really want me to make the case clear? For the Shen matter, those evidences were found out by myself in the past. I know the inside story better than anyone else, and how did those evidences come about to be in the hands of King Huai, do I need to speak for you?!”

Being exposed by Xie Chaoling face to face, and seeing the disgust and disappointment in Xie Chaoling’s eyes, Li Huan knelt and moved forward, his teeth trembling, speaking in a panic: “Your Highness, I did it for Your Highness, it’s all for Your Highness! Your Highness shouldn’t stay in King Ke’s mansion. Your Highness is a man of gold, how could you be forced by that scorpion! I just wanted Your Highness to come back…”

“You wanted me to come back, so you hurt my sister’s family, destroying them?”

Xie Chaoling scolded: “I was wrong in the past, I never thought that you were such a dirty and despicable person, get out, for the sake of grandpa and uncle, I will not bother with you. Don’t come to the East Palace again, get out.”

“What did I do wrong?!” Li Huan was furious and argued excitedly, “Shen Zhongdao misappropriated military funds and caused the death of my grandfather, father and brother-in-law, he deserved to die! It’s because Your Highness is partial to Shen that you think I did something wrong! Your Highness not only favors Shen family, but also King Ke! He committed a serious crime that should be punished by a death of a thousand cuts, why did Your Highness protect him and not report him to His Majesty?! “

Xie Chaoling sneered coldly: “You don’t have to make excuses for yourself. Shen Zhongdao diverted military expenses but he used his own private property to make up for it, you know it well. Also speaking all this, you just have a personal grudge with King Ke. You are narrow-minded and radical and do not put me, the crown prince, in your eyes. Moreover, you do not take my words seriously, I do not welcome you in this East Palace.”

“I just did one thing wrong but Your Highness will drive me away. What about King Ke? King Ke, doesn’t he deserve to die for lying to the emperor and persecuting Your Highness?!”

After Li Huan’s shout came out, he gasped for breath while staring straight at him.

After that, he heard Xie Chaoling’s voice say indifferently: “So what? I am willing to pamper King Ke.”

Li Huan was kicked out of the East Palace.

Liao Zhi raised his eyes and saw that Xie Chaoling was sitting on the couch, looking down and playing with a short knife in his hand.

Picking up the teacup and pouring the tea into his mouth, Xie Chaoling couldn’t help but frown. His father liked using this Lingzhi tea to nourish the blood and nourish the qi the most. He was used to drinking it in the past, but now trying it again, it was so bitter that he couldn’t swallow it. He twisted up a piece of dimsum and took a bite, it was really tasteless.

That little b*stard was right.

Liao Zhi stepped forward at the right time, and asked in a low voice: “Your Highness, are you not used to these?”

Xie Chaoling glanced at him: “… I just want to drink Yunwu tea, you can ask someone to change the dimsums to something more sweet, and this ambergris, get it out.”

He pushed himself too hard before, and thinking about it, it seemed unnecessary.

With the short knife out of its sheath in his hand, Xie Chaoling slowly stroked it with his fingers.

He couldn’t help feeling sorry, but in the end he only took this one thing from Xie Chaoyuan.

Li Huan went out of the palace gate and got into the carriage in a daze. He had just walked two streets when he was stopped at a quiet street corner. Two long swords held him in front of Xie Chaoyuan’s carriage.

Xie Chaoyuan didn’t even look at him, and said in a deep voice: “Take him away.”

Back at the villa outside the capital, Li Huan was escorted in, and knelt down in front of Xie Chaoyuan.

Xie Chaoyuan was looking at the comb in his hand. He begged him several times for ir and Xie Chaoling refused to give, now it was finally left here by that person.

In Xie Chaoling’s eyes, everything here was something that can be easily discarded and not worth mentioning, including him.

Li Huan struggled to get up, gritted his teeth and asked, “King Ke brought me here forcibly, what exactly do you want to do? Even if you are a prince, you can’t be so lawless!”

Xie Chaoyuan looked at him coldly: “The matter of the Shen family is your fault. You wrote to King Huai?”

Li Huan sneered: “What? Even King Ke wants to settle this account with me? What does the matter of the Shen family have to do with you?!”

It is true that the matter of the Shen family has nothing to do with him, but this person deliberately used this to force Xie Chaoling away from him.

“His Royal Highness is generous and kind. Since he went back to save the Shen family for Princess Shurou, he should also come to save you, the only remaining root of the Li family.” Xie Chaoyuan said slowly, with contempt in his eyes.

Li Huan gradually developed timid under his gaze as if being looked at like an ant, but he still insisted on his face: “You should give up, I will not let you use me to threaten His Highness the Crown Prince…”

“What are you?” Xie Chaoyuan said disdainfully, “You should be glad that the Li family is dead, and you are the only thing left. Your only value is your surname, otherwise you think you can get out of the East Palace today?”

Xie Chaoyuan’s killing intent was undisguised. Li Huan swallowed subconsciously, and struggled harder, but was held down by Xie Chaoyuan’s guards and couldn’t move at all: “You, what do you want to do?”

Xie Chaoyuan probably didn’t want to dirty his sword, so he casually slapped the guard beside him, slapped Li Huan on the face, and said viciously: “Since childhood how many times have you opposed this king, do you really think this king does not know what you have in mind?”

Li Huan clenched his teeth tightly: “You are the most despicable and nasty person, you kidnapped His Highness and threatened him, you… ah!”

After a scream, Li Huan’s bloody left ear fell to the ground.

This person had a huge black mole on his left earlobe, which was very recognizable.

Li Huan, howling in pain, clutched his bloody head and rolled on the ground. Xie Chaoyuan didn’t look at him again, and motioned to Wang Rang: “Drag him away, make sure he has at least one breath left. Pick up the thing, pack it up and send it to the East Palace.”

“Every day that the crown Prince doesn’t come to save the person, this king will send him something every day.”
