Chen Qingluan looked back, only to see a man in white waving at her.
A hint of surprise flashed through her eyes, “What brings you here?”
Su Shi walked up to her and said with a smile, “I haven’t seen you for two days, don’t Imperial Censor Chen miss me?”
The people around him looked right and left, pretending not to hear anything.
The relationship between Duke Chen and Imperial Censor Chen was no longer surprising.
This had long been no secret in the imperial city.
Chen Qingluan’s pretty face turned red and she secretly pinched him, “I’m on the case, don’t talk nonsense.”
Su Shi frowned, “Who’s talking nonsense? Am I the only one who misses Imperial Censor Chen, you don’t miss me at all?”
“It’s really heartbreaking.”
He covered his chest and showed hurt.
Chen Qingluan bit her lip, looked at him strangely, and muttered in a low voice, “I do, but a little ……”
A lieutenant from the Demon Extermination Division next to her frowned.
This shy appearance like a girl in love, was she really still the same Chen Qingluan who was cold and never smiled?
Chen Qingluan looked at Su Shi shyly.
After learning that Su Shi had been made a Duke and had been awarded a fief, she was a little worried after feeling happy.
She was only an Imperial Censor of the Demon Extermination Division, a fourth-rate official.
Su Shi, on the other hand, was the Duke of the State, and was highly favored by the Empress and could live in the Imperial Palace.
The gap between them was widening, and she was worried whether they could still get along like before.
Now that she had seen Su Shi, all her worries had disappeared.
He had not changed, he was still the same foul-mouthed pervert!
Su Shi said dissatisfiedly, “Just a little?”
Chen Qingluan looked around, leaned close to her ear and whispered, “Bastard, I miss you too!”
Feeling that orchid-like exhale, Su Shi’s heart beat a little faster, just as he wanted to say something, the young girl pulled away.
“Stop it, there are still cases to solve.”
Chen Qingluan covered her beautiful face that was rolling hot.
He was really crazy, toying with her in front of so many people.
Looking around at the solemn atmosphere, Su Shi asked, “What are you guys investigating here?”
Chen Qingluan whispered, “Prince Chu seems to be related to the matters of the Tiger Clan.”
Once a first-rate official of the imperial court, he was demoted to the northern border after embezzling disaster relief funds and served as the Lord of Huangyuan City.
But he ended up conspiring with the Tiger Clan in a futile attempt to purify 200,000 souls in the city!
This matter became a huge problem in the Capital.
The Holy Empress was furious and issued an imperial edict on the spot to execute the Gao Fan family as an example to others.
But when the court arrived, the entire Gao Residence had been burned down.
It was clear that there were others in the Capital involved in this matter.
Although there was no direct evidence, all clues vaguely pointed to Prince Chu.
Su Shi’s eyes flickered.
“It seems that things are developing faster than expected ……”
Half an hour later.
The crowd from the Demon Extermination Division returned to the front yard and shook their heads speechlessly at Chen Wangchuan.
There was obviously nothing to be gained.
Chu Yin sneered at the situation, “Looks like Patriarch Chen is busy for nothing? Now who has slandered and overturned this residence of mine!”
“This is an insult to me and disrespect to the royal family!”
“I’m not done with your Chen family yet!”
Seeing his protruding veins, everyone also sighed silently.
The Chen family and the Prince’s Mansion had formed a feud.
But it was true, why would a prince want to conspire with the tiger clan?
What use would that be to him?
Chen Wangchuan’s brows furrowed.
Could it be that the clue was wrong and Prince Chu had indeed been wrongly accused?
At that moment, a voice sounded, “Patriarch Chen, you must check it out thoroughly, lest Prince Chu wronged you.”
Several people looked back, only to see Su Shi standing lazily at the side.
Chu Yin sank his eyebrows, “You also came to join in the fun?”
Su Shi said with a smile, “I have always liked to join in the fun.”
Chu Yin sneered, “But it seems that Sir Duke will be disappointed today.”
“Is that so?”
Su Shi pointed to the Xianqing Pond on the side and said, “I see that this pond is quite large, and should be able to hide quite a lot of things underneath, I wonder if Patriarch Chen has searched it?”
The Prince’s residence was huge.
The inner structure was like a landscaped garden.
This Xianqing Pond was like a small lake, above towered strange rocky hills, looking to actually have some sort of vast fog wave feeling.
Chu Yin angrily rebuked: “Sassy, Xianqing Pond is a name given by the late emperor, how can you so impudent?”
Chen Wangchuan whispered, “I have swept the bottom of the lake with my divine sense, there is nothing down there.”
Su Shi said indifferently, “You haven’t seen it for yourself. Besides, if the investigation is not thorough, how can Prince Chu be cleared?”
Chen Wangchuan hesitated for a moment and nodded, “I will trust you this time.”
He took a step forward, his clothes were windless, and his raging sword qi surged towards the pond.
Chu Yin tried to move to stop him, but he was surrounded by a group of people from the Demon Extermination Division.
The fiery sword qi exploded into the pond, and the fake hill instantly turned into flying ashes.
The pool water quickly evaporated, and a large amount of water vapor billowed out.
In just a few moments, the huge tide of water in the Xianqing Pond dried up completely.
Only to see the pond under the strange rocks, countless fish and shrimps lying at the bottom of the pond, other than that there was nothing suspicious.
Chu Yin gritted his teeth and said: “The late emperor himself gave the name, and you dare to slander him? This is an extremely disrespectful crime!”
“Just a mere member of the Demonic path, thinking that because you have Her Majesty’s favor, you can do whatever you like?”
“If you don’t give me an explanation today, no one should leave!”
The courtiers’ faces changed slightly.
It seemed that this would tear their faces apart!
But Duke Su and Patriarch Chen had indeed gone too far, to the point of daring to destroy Xianqing Pond, which was named by the late Emperor!
Su Shi looked indifferent and sighed, “Using strange stones as the base, the fish and shrimp in the pond secretly match the number of the Big Dipper, even without using spiritual power, it can still give an illusion, and divine sense cannot sweep away the slightest offense.”
“Prince Chu Yin is indeed proficient in formations, no wonder he can help the Tiger Clan set up the Blood Slaughter Formation.”
“It’s a pity you met me.”
“Since I can break the Blood Slaughter Formation, how come I can’t see through this illusion?”
“I …… don’t know what you’re talking about!”
Chu Yin’s eyelids trembled slightly, and his fists involuntarily clenched.
Su Shi jumped into the pool, stepping on the jagged and strange rocks under his feet.
When he stepped on the seventh one, the crowd saw a sudden blur before their eyes.
They saw a golden ring emerge from thin air at the bottom of the pond.
Su Shi reached out and pulled the golden ring.
With a rumbling sound, a stone door was pulled open, revealing a deep and dark tunnel!
Everyone was stunned.
There was actually something at the bottom of this Xianqing Pond?
Chu Yin’s face was pale and his figure trembled slightly, and he no longer had the righteous indignation just now.
“You claim that the late emperor gave it that name, but you yourself hide the ugliness beneath it. Prince Chu, I think the one who has shown great disrespect is you, don’t you?”
Su Shi’s voice was ice-cold.
The crowd exploded with commotion!
