Chapter 91: Definitely Be Able To Produce An Heir
Long Yang slowed down and turned his head to look at her. “Tingchen has already left the palace.”
Lu Liangwei was a little surprised but quickly understood. “Oh.”
“Since you knew that the situation was not as simple as it seemed, why did you willingly walk into the trap?”
“I had nothing else to do, so I wanted to see what the person behind this was planning,” Lu Liangwei said unconcernedly.
There was scrutiny in Long Yang’s deep and unfathomable eyes. “You were bored, so even though you knew something was wrong, you still allowed yourself to be led into the situation? Aren’t you afraid that there might be some danger awaiting you?”
Lu Liangwei shook her head. “I’m not afraid.”
Long Yang stopped, observed her determined face, and suddenly smiled. “How bold you are for a little girl. So you were the one who pushed that palace maid in?”
Lu Liangwei nodded without a shred of remorse. “Yes, she wanted to push me, so I took the initiative to push her instead.”
A trace of a smile streaked across Long Yang’s eyes.
Lu Liangwei paused for a bit, then asked, “Your Majesty, you wouldn’t tell the Crown Prince about this, would you?”
Long Yang raised his eyebrows. “Are you scared?”
Lu Liangwei shook her head. “No, it’s just that I’m a little annoyed with the Prince…”
Her voice came to an abrupt halt.
For some reason, Long Yang felt cheerful. “Don’t worry. I won’t tell anyone about this.”
“Thank you, Your Majesty.” Lu Liangwei’s expression relaxed, a light-hearted smile spreading across her face.
The corners of Long Yang’s mouth curved slightly.
When they arrived at Hidden Dragon Palace, Lu Liangwei followed him directly into the study room and waited until Zhao Qian had cleared out all the servants before retrieving a porcelain bottle from her purse.
“Your Majesty, this is the medicine that I’ve developed in the past few days. It can help with your condition.”
As Zhao Qian had also left, Lu Liangwei had to take a few steps forward and personally give the porcelain bottle to the man behind the imperial table.
Long Yang took it, but he was not in a hurry to open it and peer inside. He instead asked, “Am I to understand that you’ve already found out the substance I’ve been poisoned with?”
Lu Liangwei’s expression became a little solemn. “Yes.”
Long Yang’s gaze swept across her face. “What is it?”
Lu Liangwei raised her eyes and glanced at him, then slowly uttered a word, “Frostbite.”
When Long Yang heard this, his expression remained undisturbed. He narrowed his phoenix eyes and stared at the porcelain bottle in his hand.
When she saw this, Lu Liangwei realized that he was probably already aware of what he had been poisoned with.
After all, Chief Physician Lin had been treating him for many years and was sure to have found out long ago.
It was just that Frostbite was an extremely insidious poison.
Not only did the culprit want to kill Long Yang, but they also wanted to prevent him from producing heirs.
The person who had poisoned Long Yang was truly vicious and despicable.
She could not help but add encouragingly, “It may be difficult to purge Frostbite, but it’s not impossible.”
At this, Long Yang raised his eyes and looked at her, a smile forming at the corners of his mouth. “Can I really be cured?”
Lu Liangwei nodded. “Yes, you can. If not, I wouldn’t dare to say this.” As if to convince him further, she promised him, “Not only am I certain that I can remove Frostbite, but I can also restore Your Majesty’s health. When that time comes, Your Majesty will definitely be able to produce an heir.”
As soon as she uttered those words, Long Yang’s expression changed, his originally somewhat gentle gaze becoming frighteningly imposing.
Lu Liangwei noticed that something was wrong with the atmosphere. When she met the man’s formidable gaze, her heart sank, and she lowered her eyes. “Forgive me for speaking out of turn, Your Majesty.”
Long Yang pursed his lips.
His voice was completely devoid of its previous gentleness and had become terrifyingly cold. “Lu Liangwei, do you realize that knowing too much will not do a person good? Not to mention how full of herself this person is.”
