Chapter 588: Such a punishment is not enough
Chu Shao Bai’s face instantly sunk, “You’re right, she was taken out by this king, but she was taken back by the emperor. She didn’t leave a single word when she left and this king almost went crazy looking for her. Does the emperor feel that this punishment is not enough? Does he still want to catch this king and beat me up?”
Zhui Feng looked down, “When this subordinate heard your highness’ words that night, I was filled with respect for you, but I never thought that in less than a day, you would actually do something like this! You made a fool of this subordinate with your lies. Now that the emperor has found out, then I ask your highness to bring her out.”
Chu Shao Bai’s heart skipped a beat and he asked, “Bring her out? Bring who out? Your meaning is that she isn’t with the emperor?”
“Your highness, since you dare commit the act, why do you not dare admit to it? You saw the emperor took her, but this subordinate thinks your highness has hidden her, right? This subordinate has been with the emperor the entire time and if the emperor took the Princess Consort, would this subordinate need to come find your highness?” Zhui Feng looked up with a serious expression.
Chu Shao Bai’s heart began to wildly beat as he felt his throat turn dry and his heart become a sea of flames, but his back broke out in a cold sweat.
“You’re saying that she isn’t with the emperor? Didn’t the emperor take her away? Then why did she disappear? That Liu girl clearly told met that she left with a tall, black clothed man! Perhaps…..Perhaps she was lying to me?”
His mind fell into chaos. After being stunned for a bit, he let out a loud shout and turned to run.
Zhui Feng was scared as he quickly followed him and asked, “Your highness, where are you going? The emperor is waiting for you!”
Chu Shao Bai’s mind was in chaos as he replied, “I’m going to find her and ask clearly!”
Chu Shao Bai suddenly stopped.
Even if he found Liu Wan Ting, then what? What if she insisted what she saw was true? Perhaps, he had guessed wrong and the black clothed person that had taken her away wasn’t the emperor?
“Zhui Feng, immediately report to the emperor. She….She has been taken away! She…..She disappeared!” He turned around and grabbed Zhui Feng’s wrist.
Zhui Feng suspiciously looked at him, “Your highness, this subordinate feels that you should bring the Princess Consort out. Last time you took the Princess Consort, the emperor did not punish you. Since you already know the truth, then why do you have to act this way!”
Chu Shao Bai’s chest filled with warm blood. His hands squeezed and Zhui Feng’s bones began to creak as he shouted, “I don’t have her! I don’t have her! She really disappeared! Zhui Feng, your tracking skills are unparalleled in this world, right? Help me find her, you have to find her!”
Zhui Feng felt like his wrists were about to break as he gritted his teeth in pain, “Your highness, let go, let go. If you keep squeezing this subordinate’s wrist, how will this subordinate look for her?”
Chu Shao Bai let go of him, but his hands were still trembling.
Zhui Feng rubbed his wrists as he began to believe Chu Shao Bai’s words.
“Your highness, when and where did the Princess Consort disappear?” He asked.
“Not long ago, on a stone bridge…..” Chu Shao Bai recounted everything for him and then said, “It was only half a tea cup’s worth of time and when I looked up, I couldn’t see her anymore.”
“This subordinate wants to go look on the bridge.”
