Yun Qiluo froze.
The deacon said, “It is said that the Prince had planned treason and was exposed by Shengzi Su, and the Empress has made him an Imperial Censor with the power to watch over all officials!”
“She also gave Shengzi Su the Shang Fang sword, which has the power to behead the fallen Prince and treasonous officials!”
“Shengzi Su …… is now the Holy Empress’ favourite person!”
Deacon carefully looked at the Demon Emperor’s face.
This fact is really outrageous.
Shengzi of the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect, himself a rebellious subject, was now a meritorious official who had eradicated the rebellious party.
He was even able to watch over all the officials and behead them before they could make a sound!
Could it be true that Shengzi Su had been recruited by the imperial court, as rumoured by the outside world?
Yun Qiluo was silent for a long time and nodded, “I knew it!”
The deacon asked in a low voice, “Are we going to do something?”
Yun Qiluo asked in return, “Do what?”
The deacon swallowed, “Now that everyone in the sect is talking about this matter, all sorts of speculations abound, Shengzi he, can’t be he really-”
“Feng Chaoge did this to show it to the world.”
“As long as the edict is issued, whether Su Shi accepts it or not, his status has changed.”
“This will show his meritorious and partially attitude, while at the same time separating Su Shi’s relationship with the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect.”
“If you all suspect Su Shi, Feng Chaoge’s goal will be achieved.”
Yun Qiluo’s voice was clear and sharp.
The deacon suddenly understood, “So that’s how it is! This empress is truly skilful and cunning!”
Yun Qiluo said indifferently, “Pass on my message that Shengzi is on a special mission, no one within the sect is allowed to discuss it.”
The deacon’s face lit up again and he walked out excitedly.
And the moment the deacon left, Yun Qiluo couldn’t strain and slumped on the table with a depressed expression.
“This Su Shi, there’s no way he’s addicted to being an official, isn’t he?”
“He abandoned the sect, no, he is investigating the Capital!”
“But even though this Feng Chaoge is annoying, she does have beauty …… Su Shi must have fallen for the beauty trap!”
Yun Qiluo was worried about gains and losses, but at the same time there was a sense of crisis.
“No, I can’t just keep to sit here and wait for it to be over.”
She sat up and spoke, “Someone, summon the Eastern Saint to my presence!”
Beyond the corner of the room, a shadow flickered.
A moment later, Yu Jiao Long, wearing rough pink clothes, walked in, “Your Majesty, you are looking for me?”
Her face was slightly pale and without her trademark drunkenness.
Yun Qiluo instructed, “Go to the Capital and bring a message to Shengzi, tell him that there is an urgent situation in the sect and ask him to return as soon as possible.”
Yu Jiao Long was puzzled, “What’s going on?”
Yun Qiluo bit her lip, her eyes sulking, “I miss him, a very urgent kind!”
Yu Jiao Long: “????”
Weiyang Capital, Fengchun House.
The lights are green and the sound of silk and bamboo is loud.
Su Shi, Chen Qingluan and Hua Manlou sat on elegant chairs on the first floor.
The positions of the three of them were still the same, with the same old chairs, but their status had changed dramatically.
Hua Manlou raised his glass of wine and said with a smile, “Congratulations, Brother Su, on your promotion and salary increase, and happy to receive the Shang Fang Sword!”
Although Su Shi was previously a duke, it was only a title, not an official position, and he had no real power.
Now he had been given the title of Imperial Censor, a first-class official with real power!
On top of that, he was given an imperial sword.
He is able to watch over all officials and cut down traitors with his sword.
Who wouldn’t tremble at the sight of Su Shi?
When he stomps his feet, Weiyang will tremble!
Su Shi raised his cup and drank it, “You know I’m not interested in this.”
Hua Manlou laughed bitterly and helplessly.
In this empire, who wouldn’t want a promotion?
If there was someone who could win Her Majesty’s favour, it would be the greatest happiness that could even set the graves of the ancestors on fire with envy.
“In that case, let’s not talk about it. Brother Su, I have specially prepared a gift for you.”
Hua Manlou took out a storage ring and inserted it into Su Shi.
Su Shi stared curiously.
Only to see that the ring didn’t contain any exotic treasures, but was piled high with jars of immortal drinks and wine!
Hua Manlou looked around and whispered as if he was a thief, “This batch was obtained from the Imperial Brewing Department, high purity, no dilution, for your satisfaction!”
Hua Jinguan was a wine lover.
The last time Su Shi drank all the wines from his residence’s collection, it really hit him hard.
It was very difficult to obtain the immortal drink from the Imperial Brewing Department, but now he had it easily thanks to Hua Manlou’s help again.
Su Shi said amusedly, “If your father finds out about this, aren’t you afraid he’ll break your legs?”
Hua Manlou said indifferently, “I’m the only successor in the Hua family, if he dares to break my leg, my grandfather will dare to break his.”
Su Shi shook his head.
This family was truly a kind father and a filial son.
“Let’s make a toast!”
The three of them pushed their glasses and drank happily.
They drank from noon until it was dark, and only then did Su Shi and Chen Qingluan walk out of Fengchun House.
Hua Manlou was already drunk and was brought back by the Hua Residence housekeeper.
Su Shi rubbed his eyebrows.
The drinking frequency seems to be rather high these days.
He was indifferent to things like alcohol, and it mainly depended on the people who drank with him.
Hua Manlou’s cultivation level is average, but his personality is good, so he is a person worth making friends with.
Chen Qingluan was silent on the side.
Su Shi looked at her curiously, “There seems to be something on your mind?”
Just now at the wine table, she was a little distracted and didn’t say much, only drinking wine sullenly.
Chen Qingluan bit her lip and said in a low voice, “Chu Yin’s case is over, are you …… going home?”
Although Su Shi didn’t say it, she was clear in her heart.
With Su Shi’s status, it was impossible for him to stay in the Capital all the time.
“So, you’re thinking about this?”
Su Shi said with a smile, “Looks like Imperial Censor Chen can’t let me go?”
Chen Qingluan’s cheeks flushed slightly, but this time she surprisingly did not deny it.
She gathered her courage, tilted her head up and looked at Su Shi seriously, “I can’t let you go.”
Su Shi froze.
Looking at those shy but firm eyes, his heart could not help but flutter a little.
A young girl’s feelings were always poetry.
He didn’t know if it was the light of the lamp or the influence of being drunk, but the girl in front of him was so bright and beautiful.
“In that case, you are ……”
Chen Qingluan was just about to speak.
Su Shi leaned over and gagged her.
Her body instantly stiffened, her eyes glazed over, and even her breathing temporarily stopped.
Time seemed to freeze.
On the busy street, the two of them were like beautiful statues.
After all this time.
Su Shi raised his head and said with a smile, “I thought Imperial Censor Chen would only have a hard mouth, but it turns out that your mouth is soft and sweet?”
It was only at this point that Chen Qingluan regained her breath.
Her chest rose and fell violently, panting heavily, her pretty face was dense with a sweet red colour, and her weak legs trembled slightly.
“You, you, you, you really kiss ……”
“This is my first kiss!”
Chen Qingluan’s brain was a little dizzy.
Su Shi seriously said, “This is also my first kiss today.”
Realising the shocked gazes of the pedestrians, Chen Qingluan stomped her feet and said embarrassedly, “I, I’ll make a recknoning with you later!”
After saying that, she turned around and ran away.
Looking at her panicked back, the corners of Su Shi’s mouth lifted into a smile.
Despite having just gone through a slight hangover, the other party’s thoughts were already written on her face.
In that situation, she felt that she had to do something.
“She acted like it was a big deal, even though all she needed to do was kiss me back.”
Su Shi shook his head and dragged.
Just as he was about to walk back, he suddenly felt something and turned his head to look in the direction of Qing Fang Mountain.
His smile tightened and his brows furrowed.
“Someone from the sect?”
