Seeing the butler’s difficult appearance, Su Shi shook his head helplessly, got up and walked out.

Pushing open the door of Chen Residence.

Only to see Eunuch Wei, dressed in a flaming python robe, waiting outside the door.

“Sir Duke.”

Eunuch Wei greeted him with quick steps and said with a smile, “You are finally willing to come out, I think I really have to wait until the sea dries up and the rocks rot.”

Su Shi said, “Let’s get straight to the point, I still have to go back to continue fortune telling.”

Fortune telling?

Duke Su knew how to tell fortunes?

When he thought of his time at the Prince’s residence, Su Shi had been able to tell everything and had seen through the illusions under the Xianqing Pond.

Eunuch Wei secretly nodded his head.

It should make sense that the Sir Duke was an expert in fortune telling.

“Is Sir Duke willing to tell my fortune too?”

Eunuch Wei said, “I am really curious about my future fortune.”

“It’s fine if you want to try, but ……”

Su Shi rubbed two fingers together, “As the saying goes, heavenly information cannot be revealed, prying into heavenly information will lead to heavenly punishment, besides it will also consume spiritual power, I have to buy some tonics to make up for it, right?”

“I can prepare it.”

Eunuch Wei took out a clear spiritual jade and pushed it into Su Shi’s hand, “I am not looking for luck, nor am I asking about career path, I just want to see what my fate will be in the future?”

Head of Internal Affairs was already the highest official position that an eunuch could achieve.

Of course, Wei Jinzhong had the trust of Her Majesty.

But accompanying the king was like accompanying a tiger.

In today’s year, even Prince Chu, who was very powerful in the palace, had fallen.

Although this was Prince Chu’s fault, but thinking of Her Majesty’s cruel methods, his heart felt a little uneasy.

“Fate?”

Su Shi put the jade away, observed it carefully, and said seriously, “Eunuch Wei’s mystic qi is light, with a hidden brightness, like the firmness of the moon, like the rising of the sun, which means a smooth destiny, this is a sign of heavenly protection that you will live a long life.”

(TLN: Actually Su Shi said a hundred years here, many ages is often used as an expression to say longevity.)

Eunuch Wei’s aura was indeed good.

But the difference between their realms was too great, so Su Shi couldn’t see it in too much detail, but was right to say it in a kind way.

At first, Eunuch Wei was quite happy, his mouth grinning to the root of his ears.

But when he heard the end, his expression immediately stiffened.

After a long silence, Eunuch Wei said bitterly, “I’m already 99 years old this year, instead of a long life… don’t I only have 1 year to live?”

“Cough!”

Su Shi almost choked on his saliva and hurriedly changed his mouth, “Mistake, that’s a mistake, Eunuch Wei has at least a thousand years of lifespan!”

Only then did Eunuch Wei’s face look a little better.

Su Shi wiped his sweat.

He almost forgot that this was the world of immortals, and that for immortal power, a hundred years was just a snap of the fingers.

Isn’t living a long life a curse?

Su Shi changed the subject, “What does Eunuch Wei want from me?”

Eunuch Wei replied, “Her Majesty asked me to come and fetch you.”

“Fetch me up?”

Su Shi was confused, “Back to the palace?”

But he realized that there was no golden palanquin behind Eunuch Wei.

Eunuch Wei shook his head, “To the imperial prison.”

“Imperial prison?”

Su Shi wondered, “Hasn’t this already been handed over to the Demon Extermination Division? What is my need there?”

Eunuch Wei said, “Her Majesty has decided to try Chu Yin in person, and since you have taken the greatest credit for this matter, Her Majesty would like you to attend.”

Su Shi frowned slightly.

Chu Yin was a member of the royal family, yet he had committed a despicable crime, at such a time, Feng Chaoge should have chosen to avoid suspicion.

In the end, let alone saying anything about the judiciary, she even invited him to execute in person?

Su Shi thought about it and nodded, “Let’s go.”

He also wanted to see what this Chu Yin would say?

###

Imperial Prison.

The place was gloomy and corrupt, dark and the air smelled unpleasantly musty.

Inside a cramped cell, Chu Yin sat cross-legged on the floor.

The old yellow dragon robe was covered in dust, and his originally sturdy body looked very hunched over, but his eyes were still icy cold.

“Chu Yin, do you know what your crime?”

Chen Wangchuan and looked at him through the railing.

The other ministers who participated in the trial also had serious faces.

Although the man in front of them was a prisoner, they still could not change the royal blood on his body.

There was no room for carelessness.

Chu Yin snorted, “What do I care if you just want to add a felony charge? I said those jade seals and correspondence don’t belong to me at all, someone is trying to frame me!”

He was not a fool, how could he keep such evidence in his residence?

Chen Wangchuan coldly said, “Then the Gao family members weren’t killed by you either?”

Chu Yin’s expression was slightly stagnant.

“And those men in ghost masks, where did they come from?”

“If you thought you were innocent, why did you rush to escape and even attempt to kill Duke Su?”

Faced with Chen Wangchuan’s interrogation, Chu Yin fell silent.

The cell was silent for a long time.

Chu Yin shook his head and said, “You are not qualified to interrogate me, I wish to see Her Majesty.”

Chen Wangchuan said, “Her Majesty has handed over this case to the Demon Exterminaton Division, so you shouldn’t have any unreasonable thoughts.”

Just then, a slightly shrill voice rang out.

“Her Majesty has arrived!”

All those people suddenly froze.

Chu Yin jerked her head to look.

At the corner of the stairs, a bright yellow phoenix robe slowly walked down, and the gloomy cell was suddenly a little brighter.

Her Majesty has actually come to the imperial prison herself!

Behind Feng Chaoge was a young man wearing a white robe.

It was Su Shi.

“I pay my respects to Your Majesty.”

Chen Wangchuan and the others knelt down one after another.

Chu Yin’s face was grim and she sat on the ground without getting up.

Feng Chaoge’s bright red lips flicked open, “Everyone out.”

“Yes.”

Several ministers did not dare to say more and bowed and retreated out.

Only Feng Chaoge, Su Shi and Chu Yin remained in the cell.

Feng Chaoge sat on a chair, and Su Shi soberly sat next to her.

The stone table and chairs in the interrogation room were fixed on the floor and could not be moved, so they were very close together.

Feng Chaoge frowned and said, “Why are you so close to me?”

Su Shi said correctly, “Because there are only two chairs here.”

Feng Chaoge asked, “Then why aren’t you standing?”

Su Shi asked back, “Why aren’t you standing up either?”

Feng Chaoge gritted her teeth and said, “I warned you, I’m still angry about what happened this morning!”

How dare this man call her hard as iron!

Su Shi crossed his arms, “Then I’ll just leave then?”

Looking at the two who were struggling as if they were children, Chu Yin’s eyebrows shot up wildly and she sneered, “No wonder Her Majesty is so dependent on this rebel, I can see it now.”

These two must be having an affair!

Feng Chaoge glanced at him and said indifferently, “In comparison, you are a true rebel, aren’t you?”

It was ironic to say the least.

Although Su Shi was a member of the Demonic path, he had saved 200,000 souls living in the Northern Border.

On the other hand, Chu Yin, who was a member of the royal family, was the ringleader of the chaos in the Nine Regions.

A trace of panic swept under Chu Yin’s eyes and he said in a loud voice, “The jade seal and the letter are not mine at all, you can ask the three divisions to compare the handwriting on the letter, I was framed!”

Feng Chaoge nodded, “I know.”

“You know?”

Chu Yin froze.

A bad feeling flooded his heart.

Feng Chaoge’s voice was calm as she said, “Since the clues were forged by me, the letters were inserted by me, and as for the jade seal …… the jade seal is genuine, since it was too late to make a fake one in a hurry.”

Boom!

It was as if it was a thunderstorm.

Chu Yin’s eyes rolled, dumbfounded at the figure in the phoenix robe.

Although he had sensed it, when the other party said it herself, it still made him fall into an ice cave!

It was not Su Shi and Chen Wangchuan who conspired to frame him.

Rather, it was the Holy Empress herself who wanted him dead!
“Feng Chaoge!”
