Chapter 948 Struck First to Gain the Advantage

Qin Haodong calmly said, “100%.”

Zhao Xianlong did not speak. This matter was too serious. He could not just take Qin Haodong’s words that his son was not his.

Qin Haodong saw through his thoughts and said, “In fact, it’s very simple to prove this matter. You just need to ask Wu Yuenian.”

Zhao Xingyue said, “Even if it’s true, how could she admit it?”

Qin Haodong said, “It’s simple. I happen to know Mind-manipulating. No one can lie under its influence. I can teach Your Majesty this method. Your Majesty will know when you look for Wu Yuenian and ask her this question.”

He knew it was a matter of great importance. Even if he used Mind-manipulating on Wu Yuenian, Zhao Xianlong would not completely believe it. The best way was to teach Zhao Xianlong Mind-manipulating and let him use it on Wu Yuenian.

Zhao Xianlong pondered for a moment and said, “That’s a good idea. I’ll do as you say.”

Mind-manipulating was not a sophisticated skill. Zhao Xianlong soon learned most of it.

He called over a few eunuchs and palace maids from outside to test the effect of the Mind-manipulating. After confirming that the method worked, he told Si Baokun, the chief steward, to summon Wu Yuenian.

Due to the maggot hidden in his bone marrow, Wu Yuenian did not have much fear of Zhao Xianlong, so she did not hesitate to come over.

After entering the door, she glanced at Qin Haodong and Zhao Xingyue. Then, she asked, “Your Majesty, what can I do for you?”

Zhao Xianlong cut straight to the chase. He directly used Mind-manipulating and asked, “Tell me. What is your relationship with Zhangsun Chengdu?”

Wu Yuenian was just an ordinary person. She didn’t have a strong mental ability. Under the influence of Mind-manipulating, she looked confused and said, “He was my first love.”

“What?” Although Qin Haodong had already said it in advance, Zhao Xianlong was still angry after getting the answer. “You bitch, didn’t you say that he was your half-brother?”

Wu Yuenian apathetically said, “I lied to you.”

Suppressing the anger in his heart, Zhao Xianlong asked again, “Whose son is Zhao Yu?”

Wu Yuenian said, “He is Zhangsun Chengdu’s and mine.”

“Bitch, I’ll kill you.”

The anger in Zhao Xianlong’s heart instantly erupted. No man could stand such a thing, not to mention that he was the ruler of a kingdom.

Qin Haodong quickly stopped him and said, “Your Majesty, please calm down. Don’t touch Wu Yuenian before dealing with Zhangsun Chengdu. Otherwise, it will easily alert Zhangsun Chengdu.”

Zhao Xingyue followed suit and persuaded the king. “Yes, father, the top priority is to figure out what had happened.”

Zhao Xianlong knew what the two people said was reasonable. He took a deep breath, suppressed the anger in his heart, and asked again, “Tell me. What happened?”

Wu Yuenian said, “Eighteen years ago, Zhangsun Chengdu was my lover. However, he was suddenly taken to cultivate in a room by his master, leaving me alone.

“My father originally didn’t agree with us being together. At that time, it happened that the King was choosing his concubines, so my father sent me to the palace.

“After entering the palace, I found out that I was pregnant. Later, I gave birth to Yu’er.

“I originally thought that my life would be like this. However, three years later, Zhangsun Chengdu suddenly reappeared.

“I told him the truth about the matter. In the end, we agreed to go on like this and let our son become the King of Tortoise Kingdom in the future.

“Then, I recommended him to become the Imperial Preceptor of the Tortoise Kingdom and quietly killed the Queen and several other Princes, so that our son could ascend to the throne one day.”

Zhao Xianlong gritted his teeth with anger. He asked again, “Then?”

Wu Yuenian said, “We’ll kill you when Yu’er ascends to the throne. Then, the three of us can be together.”


The angry Zhao Xianlong slapped Wu Yuenian hard across the face.

This wicked woman not only cuckolded him but also came up with such a vicious idea. If Qin Haodong hadn’t seen through all this, he would have given the throne to his murderous enemy in the future.

This slap woke Wu Yuenian up. She looked at everything in front of her in horror. “Your Majesty, what happened?”

Zhao Xianlong said with a ferocious look, “You bitch, you killed my Queen and Princes. Now, you colluded with Zhangsun Chengdu to seize my throne. How do you think I should deal with you?”

Wu Yuenian’s expression changed. She didn’t remember what she had just said, so she said again, “Your Majesty, I’m innocent. I did all this for our son, Zhao Yu…”

Zhao Xianlong angrily said, “Shut up! Zhao Yu is Zhangsun Chengdu’s and your son. What does he have to do with me?”

“Your Majesty…”

Wu Yuenian was stunned. She didn’t expect that Zhao Xianlong knew about this secret.

“Your Majesty, who said that? Qin Haodong? Don’t believe him. He and Zhao Xingyue are just jealous of the status of Yu’er…”

Before she finished speaking, Zhao Xianlong slapped her again, “Bitch, you still want to lie to me?”

Wu Yuenian shouted plaintively, “Your Majesty, I have really been wronged. I have never done anything dishonorable…”

Zhao Xianlong said, “Wu Yuenian, don’t pretend anymore, okay? You’re the one who told me all these things. Otherwise, how would I know?

“I used Mind-manipulating just now, so you told me all the truth.”

“Mind-manipulating?” Wu Yuenian understood what was going on. Seeing that the conspiracy was revealed, she also showed her true colors. She exclaimed with a vicious expression, “Zhao Xianlong, this is what you forced me into.

“Originally, we wanted to wait for Yu’er to ascend the throne before killing you. However, I can only send you on the road to hell ahead of time now.”

After speaking, she took out a drum from her pocket and started beating on it to spur the maggot hidden in the bone marrow.

Wu Yuenian didn’t want to kill Zhao Xianlong but wanted to force him to submit. However, after knocking for a long time, Zhao Xianlong still looked calm and didn’t respond at all.

“This… what’s happening?” Wu Yuenian looked at the drum in her hand and wondered what had taken place.

In the past, she had tried this method hundreds of times Why was it useless today?

Zhao Xingyue said, “Don’t bother. My Big Brother Qin has taken out the maggot. It’s useless even if you break the drum.”

Wu Yuenian yelled furiously, “Impossible, absolutely impossible! There’s no cure for the maggot hidden in the bone marrow. How could it possibly be taken out?”

Zhao Xianlong took out a small glass bottle from his pocket. “The medical skills of my good son-in-law are amazing. Nothing is impossible.”

Seeing the maggot wriggling in the glass bottle, Wu Yuenian’s eyes flashed with despair. Then, she gnashed her teeth and looked at Qin Haodong, saying, “Qin Haodong, you’re the one who ruined my plan time and again. Just wait and see. My man will not spare you.”

Zhao Xianlong gloomily said, “You bitch, just wait for me to kill Zhangsun Chengdu and then I’ll send your family of three to hell to be reunited.”

Wu Yuenian cried, “That’s impossible. Zhangsun Chengdu is the most powerful person in Tortoise Kingdom, a master at the stage of the Grand Completion Realm. None of you are his match. If it weren’t for my son’s throne, he would have killed you long ago.

“I advise you to release me as soon as possible. Otherwise, my man will not let you go.”

“Grand Completion Realm?” Zhao Xianlong sneered. “I forgot to tell you. Haodong just helped me to improve my cultivation to the stage of the Grand Completion Realm.”

“You… it’s you again… I’ll fight you to the death!”

After her plan was ruined by Qin Haodong one after another, Wu Yuenian completely lost her mind. She pounced crazily on Qin Haodong. However, she only took a few steps before she was kicked to the ground by Zhao Xianlong.

“Lock her up. After I capture Zhangsun Chengdu, I will deal with her as well.”

Zhao Xianlong waved his hand. Then, Si Baokun, with his men, immediately locked Wu Yuenian up.

Zhao Xingyue asked, “Father, what are you going to do?”

Zhao Xianlong looked at Qin Haodong and said, “Haodong, what do you think we should do next?”

Qin Haodong said, “Wu Yuenian has been operating in the palace for so long, so it’s inevitable that she has trusted followers. As time passes, it’s easy for the news to leak out.

“I think there’s no time to lose. It’s better to strike first to gain the advantage. We should kill Zhangsun Chengdu now.”

Zhao Xianlong said, “You’re right. We’re gonna do it now.”

After that, he said to Shangguan Qiong, who was standing next to him, “Close the palace gate. Don’t let anyone out of the palace. Immediately mobilize 10,000 soldiers of the Royal Guard to surround Imperial Preceptor’s Mansion.”

Over at Imperial Preceptor’s Mansion, Zhao Yu said to Zhangsun Chengdu, “Imperial Preceptor, can you think of a way to let me ascend the throne as soon as possible? At that time, I will definitely kill Zhao Xingyue and Qin Haodong to avenge my mother.”

Zhangsun Chengdu shook his head and said, “It is Zhao Xianlong’s stipulation that handing over the throne will be two years later.

“No hurry. Haste makes waste. You are the only Prince in the entire Tortoise Kingdom now. The throne will be yours sooner or later. No one can take it away.”

Zhao Yu said, “But I wish I could kill Qin Haodong right now and take all his women from him.

“Imperial Preceptor, you have many masters. Send people to kill him now.”

That was his actual goal. After meeting Qin Haodong today, he was immediately fascinated by Tu Jiaojiao, Yun Qianqian and all the other beautiful women.

Although he was a Prince and was surrounded by beautiful women, he didn’t have any super beautiful women like them yet.

When he talked about arranging an assassination, Zhangsun Chengdu immediately frowned. He had already sent out the Four Great Vajrapanis before. However, after a day’s wait, not only was there no news but he couldn’t even locate the Four Great Vajrapanis.

He was full of doubts. Where did the Four Great Vajrapanis go? The most important thing was that the man he wanted them to kill was still alive and well.

He would never believe that Qin Haodong could quietly kill these four people. Those were four masters at the stage of the Combination Realm. Even if Qin Haodong ate the Great Energy Explosion Pill, he could not do it.

Seeing that he was silent, Zhao Yu shouted again, “Imperial Preceptor, what are you hesitating for? Qin Haodong must die.”

Zhangsun Chengdu said, “Well, I’ll find a few more people to go and have a look right away.”

Anyway, Qin Haodong was also a troublesome person for him in his plan. He had to kill him first.

However, before he could go out to call for his men, the housekeeper rushed in and said, “Master, something bad has happened.”

Zhangsun Chengdu frowned. “What’s the big deal?”

The housekeeper said in a panic, “Master, we have a big problem. Our Imperial Preceptor’s Mansion has been completely surrounded by the Royal Guard.”

“What did you say? How is that possible? Are you mistaken?”

Zhangsun Chengdu grabbed the housekeeper’s collar.

The housekeeper said in a panic, “No, I’m right. I am sure. It’s the Royal Guard that surrounded Imperial Preceptor’s Mansion. The leaders are the chief steward Si Baokun and the Vice Commander Shangguan Qiong. Even His Majesty has come in person.”

Zhangsun Chengdu was shocked. Zhao Xianlong personally led a team to surround his mansion. What was going on? Had his plot been exposed? It was absolutely impossible.

Just then, a booming voice rang out in midair. “The culprit Zhangsun Chengdu! Get out and face your death!”

Zhangsun Chengdu strode out of the room and saw that the entire Imperial Preceptor’s Mansion had been surrounded. The walls were lined with the Royal Guard. All of them held God-killing Arrows. The entire mansion was totally blocked.
