Feng Chaoge froze for a moment.
Su Shi scratched his head, “I don’t remember anyway, who else would know if you don’t say it?”
Feng Chaoge laughed coldly, “Duke Su has a great idea! So you’re saying I was humiliated by you for nothing?”
Su Shi pondered for a moment, “How about I get naked so you can see mine too, so we’re even?”
Feng Chaoge gritted his teeth, “Who wants to see yours? I don’t want to dirty my eyes!”
Su Shi said helplessly, “Then what do you want?”
Feng Chaoge said coldly, “According to Linlang Law, this crime deserves the death penalty! Even if you are a Shengzi and have Yun Qiluo behind you, so what?”
“Do you really think I dare not kill you?”
Feng Chaoge’s killing aura was as cold as frost, and an enormous pressure poured out like a mountain pushing a jade pillar.
Su Shi’s face did not change as he calmly said, “If you wanted to kill me, you would have already done it, so why bother with words? Say it directly, what do you want?”
Feng Chaoge’s expression was slightly stagnant.
This guy is a bit annoying and clever ……
She withdrew her intimidating pressure, sat back in her chair and said bluntly, “I want you.”
Su Shi froze for a moment, “I just saw you take a bath, isn’t it too much that I have to give you my body in return, right?”
Feng Chaoge frowned slightly, “What are you talking about? I want you to stay in the Imperial Capital and help me rule the world, not become a Duke who only has a fake title.”
Su Shi shook his head, “You should know clearly that I am not interested in this.”
“Being above the world, grasping the yin and yang, your ambition is to be on the path of immortals.”
Feng Chaoge looked at him, “But have you ever wondered why I can still be so strong even though I’m busy with my worldly affairs?”
Su Shi shook his head.
He hadn’t really thought about this question.
“There are thousands of great daos, and they are all headed in the same direction, so how could imperial power not be one of the great daos?”
Feng Chaoge said, “To rise to the highest position, hold the world in your hands, and add dragon energy to your body, this is the way of imperial power!”
Su Shi suddenly understood, “You mean to break through the shackles through great qi?”
Feng Chaoge nodded, “Otherwise why would Yun Qiluo aim for this throne? In fact, what she is fighting for is not power, but the vast qi of this True Dragon in the Nine Regions!”

Su Shi wondered, “Even so, why are you talking to me about this?”
Feng Chaoge looked at him and said, “Because you don’t need to fight for it. As long as you remain by my side, one day, I will personally hand over the Empire to you.”
The most powerful person does not mean eternal life.
If the imperial dynasty wanted to survive eternally, then it must have a successor to do so.
“Hmm, future planning, huh?”
Su Shi shook his head and snorted, “Imperial territory, you will give it to me, an outsider?”
Feng Chaoge was not angry, she said lightly, “I have no spouse or heir, who else do you think I can give these territories to?”
In recent years the Royal Family was in turmoil due to the absence of a successor.
She was the head of the empire and held the crown in her hands, but the harem was still empty and there wasn’t even a single face, who else could inherit the throne?
Su Shi shrugged, “Isn’t there still Prince Chu?”
Feng Chaoge snorted coldly, “He is a partisan, corrupt, and annoying person, how could I possibly put the empire in the hands of such a person?”
If not for the royal bloodline, she would have killed Chu Yin with her own hands.
“You are a hero of the mankind, extraordinarily talented, and have also understood Hao Ran sword intent.”
Feng Chaoge sighed and said, “I really can’t find anyone more suitable than you.”
Su Shi rubbed his nose.
He was a little embarrassed by the other party’s praise.
“But I’m really not interested.”
Feng Chaoge seemed to expect him to refuse and said, “That’s fine, I will give you another choice.”
Su Shi said curiously, “What choice?”
Feng Chaoge looked at him seriously, “Since you don’t want to be the successor, then give birth one for me.”
Su Shi was shocked, “Give birth, give birth one?!”
Su Shi looked at her flat little belly and his throat was slightly dry, “…… this is not quite right, right?”
Leaving love without seed is called romantic, but leaving seed without love is called evil.
This kind of thing he really couldn’t do.
Feng Chaoge noticed his gaze, I reacted, a trace of shame and anger swept under my eyes, “I do want a child from you, but who said it has to be with me? What perverted thoughts are in your head!”
She was a monarch, how could she sit on a cold throne while having a big belly?
This guy is too outrageous!
Su Shi breathed a sigh of relief, “That scares me.”
Feng Chaoge glared at him, “Aren’t you very close to Chen Qingluan? She was born with a sword body, and you are a Holy-grade perfect talent, so your bloodline talents are naturally very strong.”
“Besides, the two of you are a good match, so as long as you leave your offspring to me, I will raise him to be a brilliant generation lord.”
She thought that this idea was well thought out.
It had a successor and also solved future worries, binding Su Shi and the imperial dynasty together.
Su Shi was silent for a long time and sighed, “No wonder you made me a Duke and had to emphasize hereditary succession, so the idea is already about my descendants.”
He thought he had seen quite clearly, but he did not expect this empress’ thoughts to be this deep.
Feng Chaoge looked natural and said, “This will benefit you without any harm.”
She couldn’t think of any reason for the other party to refuse.
Su Shi looked at her coldly and suddenly said, “Do you know what the difference is between you and Demon Empress?”
Feng Chaoge froze for a moment, “What is the difference?”
“Although Demon Empress is evil and rebellious, her heart is fresh and tender, sweet gourds are more important to her than the Great Dao.”
“And you are a proper noble, sitting on a cold throne, but your heart is cold as iron, full of calculations and interests.”
Su Shi said indifferently, “To Linlang, you may be a good empress, but for me personally, it’s better to stay away from you.”
From the moment he entered Weiyang Capital, the other party had been calculating, and now the idea had even reached Chen Qingluan.
This caused discomfort to arise in Su Shi’s heart.
After saying that, he did not look at her again and walked straight out of the palace.
The female officer happened to pass by the door.
Seeing Su Shi come out of her bedroom, her jaw almost dropped to the ground.
“Why is Su Shi here? Could it be Her Majesty …… impossible!”
The female officer’s eyes were filled with shock.
She carefully walked into the bedroom, only to see Feng Chaoge sitting frozen in her chair, as if she was a statue, not moving at all.
The female officer walked over to her, but was shocked by the scene in front of her.
She saw Feng Chaoge’s eyes moistening, biting her lips, her expression a little angry and a little sad.
She had never seen Her Majesty show such an expression before!
“Your Majesty, Your Majesty?”
Feng Chaoge gripped her phoenix robe and said in a low voice, “He really said that my heart is as cold as iron?”
“The Netherworld Rakshasa Sect is plotting against my empire, can I just watch?”
“I only asked him to give me a child, but he didn’t want to, why did he say that?”
Seeing the Holy Empress’ sad gaze, the female officer gulped.
Having a child?
Thinking of Su Shi who had just walked out of her bedroom, the female officer’s scalp couldn’t help but tingle slightly.
“I won’t be silenced by Her Majesty, won’t I!”
