“Frame?” Gu Yihan sneered.
He pointed at the man who was pressed to the ground.
“He even dared to lose his life to take revenge on you. Moreover, you have nothing. What worth do you have to be framed for?”
These words were very heart-wrenching.
Prince Guang was almost unable to refute.
Gu Yihan flicked his sleeves. “Stop quibbling. You’ve really embarrassed me today. Someone! Pass down my decree and give Prince Guang 20 heavy strokes of the paddle. Make him reflect in the Zhuyou Palace before he recovers!” “Imperial Brother!” Prince Guang shouted at the top of his lungs.
Gu Yihan didn’t look at him. “Drag him away.”
Prince Guang kept shouting as he was taken away by the imperial guards. The commoners watched the entire process.
His Majesty didn’t side with Prince Guang just because he was his younger brother.
Instead, he taught him a lesson in front of so many people.
At this moment, Gu Yihan looked at the man kneeling on the ground.
He narrowed his eyes. Under his golden crown, his expression looked very cold and dignified.
“That peasant woman is your wife?”
The man lowered his head and said in a low voice, “Yes…”
Gu Yihan gave a thought-provoking smile, but he quickly regained his usual expression.
“Although your motives are understandable, it’s really disrespectful to use such a method to take revenge. You’ll be thrown into the water prison immediately and released after five days of reflection.”
The man didn’t cry like Prince Guang. Instead, he resigned himself to his fate and was dragged away.
The surrounding commoners witnessed the entire process.
They all shouted. “Your Majesty is wise!”
Ren Chao, who was sitting in a private room on the second floor of a building not far away, put down his teacup when he saw that everything had come to a conclusion.
He pushed open the door and left calmly.
At night, Ren Chao knelt in a dark room.
This was where he met Prince Guang.
Prince Guang was carried in by a powerful trusted aide.
Because his butt had been hit 20 times, he was in so much pain that he couldn’t get up.
He had just applied medicine onto his wounds and Grand Consort Yu was crying her eyes out.
At this moment, Prince Guang’s expression was clearly not good either.
He couldn’t get up and just lay on the burly man’s back.
“Ren Chao, how dare you!”
Ren Chao kowtowed. “This subordinate doesn’t know what I did wrong!”
Prince Guang’s eyes were savage. “You still dare to say that you don’t know what you’ve done wrong? You ignored your agreement with me and actually made this mistake. I think you’re just a spy who complies on the surface but goes against the rules on the inside!”
Ren Chao sounded as if he had been wronged.
He tried his best to explain, “Your Highness, you’ve wronged this subordinate! This subordinate was hiding in the dark and was about to make a move when I saw that an arrow had already shot out first!
“This subordinate was puzzled at that time and thought that Your Highness didn’t trust me and had arranged for someone else to lay an ambush! Later on, the imperial guards came looking for me. This subordinate didn’t dare to stay any longer and hurriedly left.”
Prince Guang was so angry that he felt dizzy.
“You’re saying that that b*stard specially came to assassinate me? That everything was a coincidence?” Ren Chao lowered his head. “That must be the case.”
Prince Guang was extremely angry.
Ren Chao’s eyes flickered.
He recalled Gu Nuo’er’s instructions.
Therefore, he took the initiative to suggest, “Your Highness, this was an accident. This subordinate will definitely do it well next time.”
“Next time? Do you know how difficult it is for there to be a chance for His Majesty to leave the palace? There are many experts in the palace, and it’s even harder to succeed! You’re useless!”
Ren Chao looked up, his eyes bright.
Under the illumination of the dark room’s light fire, it looked like flames were jumping around, carrying a bewitching effect.
“Your Highness, you’ve forgotten that the first half of next month is the Double Third Festival[1.A Chinese festival celebrated on the third day of the third month of the Chinese calendar.]. At that time, the princess will definitely go out to play. Instead of saving His Majesty, why don’t you save the princess? You have to know that the little princess is His Majesty’s precious daughter.. If you can become the princess’s savior, will Your Highness still need to be afraid that His Majesty won’t be soft-hearted?”
