Chapter 237: Picking Up an Emperor-Rank Prince Consort?
Central Imperial Palace…
Qian Yuan Palace…
In the center of the hall, Sheng Zhixia and Sheng Anyi’s heads hung low like children who had made mistakes.
Sheng Ye’s eyes swept over the two of them and said coldly, “I heard that you’ve run to the Li family very often recently?”
The two of them went to the Li Family every day, either to give them gold, silver, jewelry, or spirit tea or immortal wine.
Moreover, they even used their name to say that it was the Emperor’s dress, causing all the officials to think that he wanted to support the Li family. All of them went to give gifts.
The Li family was already a top-tier family, so if they were to make such a scene, the limelight would become even worse.
Wasn’t this a big fuss.
When it reached the ears of the Righteous Path’s great sects, they thought that he, Sheng Ye, was siding with the Devil Dao.
So he had been very close to Chen Yundao recently to balance the effects of this matter.
Sheng Zhixia blushed slightly as she said in a low voice, “Imperial Father, the Li family is a meritorious servant of the Sheng Clan. Your daughter is just thanking them.”
When Sheng Ye heard this, he was even more displeased. “Li Ran has already robbed the treasury. How can I thank him?”
Sheng Zhixia muttered, “You let him take it as I please, but you feel sorry for him taking something good…”
“What did you say?” Sheng Ye frowned.
His imposing aura made her shiver.
When Sheng Anyi saw this, she hurriedly came out to smooth things over. “Imperial Father, don’t be angry. Zhixia was just saying it casually. There’s no other meaning to her words.”
Not only did Sheng Ye not calm down, he even glared at her. “You too. You’re even more diligent in running to the Li family! You’re not familiar with Li Ran, so why are you joining in?”
Sheng Anyi lowered her head in shame.
How could she dare to tell her father that Li Ran was in control of her “information”?
If she didn’t curry favor with the Li family, she wouldn’t have the face to meet them if the image was exposed.
Seeing their strange expressions, Sheng Ye said doubtfully, “You two… It can’t be that you’re interested in Li Ran, right?”
“How is that possible!”
“I, I don’t like him!”
The two of them cried out in alarm at the same time, and their beautiful faces were both flushed red.
Sheng Ye frowned tightly.
This bashful appearance was clearly no silver at all.
No wonder they ran to the Li family every day…
Not only did Li Ran rob the treasury, but he even took his two precious daughters?
Sheng Ye had once had the intention to let Zhixia and Li Ran have a relationship. However, it was not appropriate if he thought about it carefully.
Li Ran’s background was too complicated, so it might not be a good thing if the Sheng Clan was involved.
But what happened?
Not only did he hook up with his daughter, he also hooked up with the other one!
This was too crazy.
“I warn you, stay away from Li Ran!
“Even though he’s a hero of the Sheng Clan, he’s also Leng Wuyan’s disciple. He’s a true devil!
“You represent the Sheng Clan and the position of the Imperial Court. It’s best to put this in your hearts!” Sheng Ye’s cold voice echoed in the hall.
“Yes.” The two of them had helpless expressions, but they did not dare to refute.
At this moment, a black-clothed guard quickly walked in. “Reporting to Your Majesty, there is verbal information from the northern region.”
“The North?” Sheng Ye raised his brows. “Is it the Youluo Temple?
The guard nodded. “This is related to the Youluo Temple’s Sheng Zi, Li Ran.”
“Li Ran again… Speak.”
The guard’s voice was loud and clear, “According to reliable information, the Devil Sheng Zi Li Ran has broken through to the Heavenly Tribulation Realm the day before yesterday!”
“What?” Sheng Ye couldn’t help but exclaim, “He’s already at Heavenly Tribulation Realm?”
It had only been a few days since he last saw him at the mid-Nascent Soul stage?
The guard threw out another heavy bomb. “When Li Ran broke through into Heavenly Tribulation Realm, he triggered a phenomenon in the heavens and the earth, drawing the divine punishment of the nine heavens, and he used his body to forcefully resist the tribulation lightning, successfully breaking through!”
Sheng Ye suddenly stood up with a shocked expression, and the bead curtain on his head kept shaking.
“The Nascent Soul has broken through to the Heavenly Tribulation Realm, and it actually summoned lightning tribulation? This, this fellow must be a monster!”
Sheng Zhixia and her sister looked at each other with shock in their eyes.
This was just too terrifying!
The guards retreated, and the hall became quiet.
Sheng Anyi came back to her senses and cupped her hands, “Imperial Father, I’ll be taking my leave first.”
“Wait.” Sheng Ye shook his head. “That Li family…”
Sheng Anyi hurriedly said. “Don’ t worry, father. I won’ t go again.”
Sheng Ye said, “I didn’ t mean that… I heard that Li Daoyuan likes to drink. You can take ten bottles of Immortal Intoxication Wine and send them over.”
“Ah?” Both of them were stunned. “Imperial Father, didn’t you say you wanted to keep a distance?”
Sheng Ye’s expression was slightly awkward. “It’s just a few bottles of wine. It’s just a token of thanks.”
“Cough cough… Come, tell Imperial Father, which step have you and Li Ran taken?”
Seeing his kind smile, the sisters were speechless.
As expected of their Imperial Father, his face changing speed was still so shocking…
Actually, it wasn’t Cheng Ye’s fault.
The main reason was that this news was too frightening.
The only way to reach the seventh realm was to undergo a tribulation while becoming an Emperor. As for Li Ran, he was able to trigger lightning tribulation as soon as he broke through to the Heavenly Tribulation Realm.
This was no longer something that could be described as a genius.
As long as he did not fall, this child would definitely become an Emperor!
Inwardly, he muttered, “It would be great if the Youluo Temple did not have a ban. If he was to marry any of them, wouldn’t it be a waste to pick up an Emperor-level Prince Consort… What kind of broken rules does Leng Wuyan have!”
In the Sect Master’s bedroom in Demon Peak, Li Ran looked at Leng Wuyan in his arms and didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “Master, didn’t you ask me to come to your bedchamber to cultivate? It’s been a few days, but I haven’t cultivated even for an hour.”
Leng Wuyan hugged him and snorted, “I don’t care. You didn’t come to accompany me for a few days, so you must make up for this time!”
“……” Li Ran was serious. “I’ve always been diligent and passionate about cultivation. It’s hard for me not to cultivate for a day.”
“Nonsense, your passion is clearly…”
Leng Wuyan blushed slightly. She was too shy to continue.
Li Ran blushed. “Ahem, that is only one reason.”
Leng Wuyan recalled what he had said during the lightning tribulation, and her eyes were full of warmth.
“I understand your intentions, but you can’t be so impulsive anymore. How can a breakthrough be so childish?”
Li Ran nodded. “I know.”
Leng Wuyan said bashfully, “Although you didn’t merge the Daos, we still have a lot of things to do. Why be so persistent?”
Li Ran’s eyes lit up as he thought of something. “Master, you’ve really awakened the person in your dream!”
Leng Wuyan was confused. “Ah?”
Li Ran moved closer to her ear and mumbled.
Leng Wuyan’s face instantly flushed red as she dodged far away as if she had been electrocuted. She looked at him in panic.
“How, how could I do such a thing?!
“You traitorous disciple!”
