Chapter 502: Catching a person
The broken jade token was thrown at the seventh prince’s feet and further shattered into smaller pieces.
“This is…..” The seventh prince had uncertain eyes.
“Ji Chao Yuan was our people and now…..he is dead…..” Elder Qiu’s voice was incredibly indifferent, like he was saying something very normal.
In the stone room.
Other than the sound of young boys and girls crying, there were no other sounds.
The seventh prince was frozen on the spot, not daring to respond.
“This, elder Qiu, please be assured. I will send people to investigate.” After thinking for a bit, the seventh prince carefully said this.
“I want to know the recent whereabouts of Ji Chao Yuan over the past few days and the people who have interacted with him.” Elder Qiu softly said.
“Yes!” The seventh prince replied before retreating.
After leaving the stone room, the seventh prince wiped the sweat from his forehead. Ji Chao Yuan was actually their person! But Ji Chao Yuan had lived in the Ice Mist Country for over twenty years and had been a general for fifteen years!
Could it be……Thinking of this result, there was a deep fear in the seventh prince’s heart.
While the third prince, the seventh prince, and Jia Qiong were all busy with their plans, Ye Yu Xi was peacefully sleeping in her room.
After that large battle, Ye Yu Xi threw off her blood soaked clothes and took a warm bath before lying on the bed.
She slept all the way until dawn.
Dong, dong, dong!
Soft knocks came from the door.
“Big sister Yu Xi, are you awake?” Nangong Ying Xue’s voice sounded.
Ye Yu Xi rubbed her eyes and drowsily opened them. She put on some clothes before getting up to open the door.
“What is it?” Opening the door, she saw that Nangong Ying Xue’s eyes were completely bloodshot. It seemed like she hadn’t slept all night.
“Big sister Yu Xi, when Zhang Da Yong and them were cleaning the battlefield, they caught someone.”
“Un? Let’s take a look.” Ye Yu Xi quickly put on her clothes.
She went with Nangong Ying Xue to the main hall.
On the ground of the main hall, there was someone thrown there completely tied up.
“It’s you?” Ye Yu Xi saw the face of this person and was stunned. She remembered this person, “The respected Instructor Wang of the General’s Manor, why are you in the mood to come to the country?”
Ye Yu Xi softly walked over and sat down in the main seat. She picked up the teacup to the side and took a sip.
Dong, dong, dong!
When Instructor Wang saw Ye Yu Xi, he kneeled down and kowtowed to Ye Yu Xi. He then shouted, “This little one is here for refuge, I ask the young miss to take me.”
“Refuge?” Ye Yu Xi gave a cold laugh before slamming the teacup on the table, “Why did I hear that you were caught!”
“This little one, this little one has evidence on Ji Chao Yuan. I believe, I believe it will be useful for the young miss.” Instructor Wang kept kneeling on the floor with a head covered in cold sweat. He kept looking all around.
“Alright, I can keep your life for now.” Ye Yu Xi’s lips suddenly curled into a smile as she looked at Nangong Ying Xue on the side.
Nangong Ying Xue noticed this and waved her hand. The two mercenaries at the door came over and dragged Instructor Wang out.
“Young miss, I’m telling the truth! I really have evidence of General Ji’s crimes! Young miss!” Instructor Wang struggled as he called out, but his voice became more and more distant.
“Big sister Yu Xi, you can’t take this person seriously.” Nangong Ying Xue heard Instructor Wang’s shouts and quickly reminded Ye Yu Xi.
Ye Yu Xi nodded, “I know, but this isn’t what we should be worried about.”
“Un?” Nangong Ying Xue was a bit confused.
“Take the evidence of the crimes of the important ministers and this Instructor Wang, have someone send them to the third prince. As for how these things will be used, it’ll depend on the third prince.” Ye Yu Xi said this as she took another sip from the teacup.
