Chapter 24 – The crown prince unexpectedly… can’t raise it up
If she didn’t even care for the position of the crown princess, why should she care for this false position of a non existent concubine. In her heart, Su Luo secretly laughed at this crown prince’s self-righteousness.
She feigned a smile and cast a sidelong glance at the crown prince. “Your highness the crown prince, since the position of concubine is so precious to you, you can keep it. It can not be awarded to just anyone, and your subject’s daughter is afraid that she can’t assume the responsibilities.”
“What an audacious woman!” Before the crown prince could speak, the imperial bodyguards at the crown prince’s side, had already furiously shouted as the tip of their long swords pointed straight at Su Luo’s vital point, the throat. As long as the crown prince give the order, the sword point would, without difficulty, pierce her throat.
Su Luo’s back was perfectly straight. Her eyes remained cool as she calmly stared at the crown prince, and tauntingly said: “What’s wrong? In the presence of so many people, is our wise, good at martial arts, clever and farsighted crown prince trying to intimidate his subject’s daughter? Easy to say but not good to hear.”
The crown prince was humiliated into anger. He coldly snorted: “Intimidate my subject’s daughter? You’d need to be worthy of it first! Since you failed to appreciate my kindness, why should this one give you face?’
That said, the crown prince coldly waved his hand, and issued an order.
Very quickly, a palace eunuch walked forth while holding an imperial edict in his hands, and loudly started to read: “From heaven’s mandate, the Emperor’s imperial order says… The Fourth Miss of Su family behaves improperly… and was not brought up virtuously… Thus, it is impossible for her to assume the position of the crown princess. This thereby invalidates the engagement set years ago. Henceforth, there is no mutual responsibility for them to participate in this wedding, please rise——”
An imperial decree, was even more difficult to alter.
At this time, it was rare that both Su Luo and Su Xi breathed a sigh of relief at the same time.
The crown prince coldly glared at Su Luo, leaned near her ear, clenched his teeth, and said in a low voice: “Girl, in the future, do not appear in front of this king!”
“What?” Su Luo seems to be shocked and scared silly enough to repeat: “Your highness the crown prince, your reason for breaking off the engagement, it’s because, it won’t… won’t raise up?”
Once the words left Su Luo’s mouth, a deafening silence instantly surrounded the air. Everyone quickly stopped breathing, casted their eyes down, and did not dare to look at the crown prince.
But the corner of her eyes and the tip of her eyebrow, were unable to conceal her smiling expression that clearly explained everything implied within those words.
What a great clever and eloquent loathsome girl!!! The crown prince’s face looked as if it had been whipped and was terrifying as dark clouds; it was as if a storm was imminent.
This really was nothing more than Su Luo’s scheme to slander. It was the so-called open conspiracy. As the name implied, it was to openly, without tricks, arrange a conspiracy.
If the crown prince was to punish her, it would clearly show that he was trying to cover it up and thus, make it more conspicuous. Was it really because he lacked the confidence and stamina?
But if the crown prince did not punish her, he would lose face.
No matter what the crown prince did, he did not have any ground to stand on. No matter how he answered, he would not be able to clear up this misunderstanding.
It’s like yellow mud dropping from inside his pants from the crotch area. Even if it was not poop, it was still considered to be poop.
The crown prince’s face went from blue to red. He fiercely stared down at Su Luo, until finally, he harshly flinged his sleeves and strode away.
Su Jingyu admonished Su Luo with displeasure: “Terrible girl, how could you speak like that? How can you speak to the crown prince like that? The crown prince did not punish you because of him being merciful, you should reflect on it!’
After he finished speaking, Su Jingyu pacified Su Xi with a glance, then quickly followed the departing crown prince.
As for what exactly he was trying to pacify, perhaps only he knew.
“How… How could you… ” Su Zian unwaveringly glared at Su Luo. He stared at her like he wanted to swallow her whole, “How could you be this shameless!”
Su Luo sneered in her heart. On the surface, her lips were flat, as if she had been wronged, “But… But honorable father, the crown prince he, he really said that… ”
When the crown prince leaned close to her ear and said something earlier, only the two of them knew what had been said. If the crown prince wanted to deny it, hahaha, there’s no chance of that now!
