Dressed in a bright yellow phoenix robe, she stood by the window. The phoenix’s eyes and eyebrows were beautiful and graceful, with an intimidating majesty in its beauty and charm.
“Yun Qiluo had come personally.”
A female official behind her bowed and said, “Sikong Lanyue also came, but did not make any movements, only took Zhan Qingchen away.”
The hall was silent for a moment, and then a soft and distinctive voice sounded:
“The Righteous faction has never been our ally, we only have a common enemy for now.”
Whether it is the Righteous faction or the Demonic faction, as long as it is a force that threatens the empire, they are all traitors and rebels in Feng Chaoge’s eyes.
It was just a matter of different priorities.
The female official said, “Your Majesty, your actions towards Su Shi this time, I’m afraid it will provoke a backlash from the Demonic path.”
Feng Chaoge shook his head, “When did I take action against Su Shi?”
“Then Commander Han ……”
“That’s his own decision.”
Listening to that indifferent voice, the female officer felt a chill in her heart.
Han Chen almost died and is now seriously injured. Most likely his cultivation level has regressed and even crippled.
But according to the words of the Holy Emperor, it is a trivial matter.
Feng Chaoge glanced at her, “I know what you’re thinking, do you think I’m too ruthless?”
The female official lowered her head, “This servant does not dare.”
Feng Chaoge sighed, “If I really want to take action against Su Shi, I will strike with lightning and kill him in one blow, so why should I send Han Chen alone?”
“Blocking the mountain this time was just a test, but Yun Qiluo’s reaction was beyond my expectation.”
“From now on, I’m afraid this Su Shi can’t be touched.”
In governing a country, excellently organizing a sector means nothing if you ignore the perspective of the overall situation. 1
Yun Qilou was capable of anything, but Feng Chaoge could not gamble with the entire empire at stake. 2
“Open the treasury, gather the royal doctors, and do your best to treat Han Chen’s injuries.”
The female official nodded her head.
Just as she was about to retreat, she heard Feng Chaoge say: “Chen Qingluan seems to have a good relationship with Su Shi?”
The female official frowned slightly, “Something is indeed wrong.”
In order to defend Su Shi, Chen Qingluan went out of her way to fight with Han Chen.
The relationship between the two was clearly abnormal.
The female officer said, “Your Majesty, should we investigate?”
Feng Chaoge said, “Su Shi has excellent talent and is handsome, and Chen Qingluan is a young girl, so it is natural for her to fall in love with him.”
The female official was surprised, but did not dare to ask more.
She bowed and withdrew.
Feng Chaoge looked out the window, her bright eyes filled with laughter.
“Yun Qilou’s cherished baby, if Chen Qingluan snatches it, her expression must be amazing, right?”
Light laughter, as if the ice and snow had melted.
The flying boat shot through the air.
As the Demon Empress’s royal vehicle, the boat was very luxurious and large, even the decoration was very exotic and precious, as if it was a palace flying in the air.
The scent of tea curled up in the room.
Su Shi sipped his tea nervously.
Yun Qiluo sat opposite him, silently looking at him, not saying a word.
The atmosphere was rather quiet.
After a long time, she suddenly said, “Do you like Chen Qingluan?”
Su Shi spit out a mouthful of tea.
“Cough cough, I like Chen Qingluan? How is that possible!”
He thought the other party would ask about the matter of opportunity, but he didn’t expect the picture to go off the rails as soon as she opened her mouth.
Yun Qiluo frowned, “If you don’t like her, why did you defend Chen Wangchua just now?”
Tired of seeing a lot of blood and death? Does he think I’m stupid?
Su Shi was silent for a moment and said in a low voice, “Actually, I’m worried about Your Majesty.”
Yun Qiluo was stunned, “Worried about me?”
“Although Your Majesty is very powerful, but the Northern Region is after all the inner of the imperial dynasty, if the Imperial Palace unites with the Righteous people to attack, I’m afraid the situation will not be in your favor.”
Su Shi looked at her seriously, “This subordinate does not want Your Majesty to be in the slightest danger.”
Looking at those deep eyes, Yun Qiluo’s heartbeat increased slightly.
Strange, why does this man seem to have become more handsome?
Yun Qiluo shifted her gaze, “I’ll ignore it this time, but you’re not allowed to get in touch with those disciples of the Righteous path!”
Su Shi nodded vigorously, “I only have Your Majesty in my heart.”
Yun Qiluo’s cheeks were slightly red, “You are presumptuous, who allowed you to put me in your heart?”
This sounds like a confession!
For not being allowed to have contact with those disciples of the Righteous path, she instead laid her eyes on me?
Su Shi hurriedly said, “Your Majesty has misunderstood…”
“I don’t need an explanation.”
Yun Qiluo was silent for a moment, then asked: “Did you get anything in Tianqu Mountain this time?
Su Shi nodded, “This subordinate has reached the Late Stage of Golden Elixir Realm.”
“Late Stage of Golden Elixir Realm?”
Yun Qiluo’s eyes were astonished, her eyes looked closely…
She saw that Su Shi’s aura was solid and majestic, his spiritual energy was abundant and surging, he was indeed someone in the real Late Stage of Golden Elixir Realm!
It had only been half a month since he broke through the Golden Elixir, and he had already broken through two small realms in a row!
A twenty-year-old at the Late Stage of Golden Elixir Realm?
Even if he was a Holy-grade perfect, it was too much!
She was somewhat overwhelmed for a while.
Su Shi scratched his head and said, “This subordinate is just lucky to get an infusion of spiritual energy.”
Yun Qiluo shook her head, “Luck itself is also part of strength.”
Luck never favors the weak.
Otherwise, of all the cultivators, why was Su Shi the only one given a chance?
Yun Qiluo pondered slightly, “It seems that this time the opportunity is not trivial, no wonder Zhan Qingchen and Chen Qingluan are both-“
Seeing that they were about to get involved again, Su Shi hurriedly changed the subject: “By the way, this subordinate also brought a gift for Your Majesty.”
Yun Qiluo froze.
She saw Su Shi take out a pendant and said with a smile, “I found this in the Immortal Palace, it has the effect of calming the mind and qi, although it is not a precious treasure, I feel it will look good on Your Majesty.”
Yun Qiluo stared blankly at the crystal clear pendant, her pretty face flushed red, she bit her lip and said, “You, what do you mean by gifting this kind of thing?”
Su Shi looked puzzled at first, but then he was also surprised.
The pendant was a red jade, and it happened to be heart-shaped!
Oh no, I didn’t notice what I just picked up ……
He had already gotten to this point and couldn’t possibly take it back, Su Shi could only make up a story, “Cough, this represents this subordinate’s pure heart.”
“Your pure heart?”
Yun Qiluo snorted.
She couldn’t believe it!
Just now he said that she was the only one in his heart, and now he gave her a heart-shaped pendant.
Although she is not involved in the “red world” and knows little about the relationship between men and women, she would be a fool not to understand this!
Seeing that she hadn’t spoken for a long time, Su Shi said embarrassedly: “Yes, this is just an ordinary spiritual treasure, how could it be worthy of Your Majesty? This subordinate is too frivolous, I hope Your Majesty is not offended.”
Saying that, he put the pendant back away.
Yun Qiluo’s face was slightly red, her eyes seemed to have ripples, she said softly: “Who said I don’t want it? You can wear it for me.”
