Chapter 673 – At the time when leaving (5)
He did indeed go to request an imperial decree. Originally, he had wanted to use a soft method with a hard method simultaneously. If the soft one did not work, then he would use the hard one.
However, he had just spoken and was immediately met with His Majesty’s refusal.
His Majesty’s expression at that time was terrible. He just said one sentence, this emperor has no control over Apothecary Leng.
Just one sentence, and he annihilated Su Zian’s hopes.
Because of Emperor Jing’s position, he knew Apothecary Leng’s background. He knew he had studied under Grandmaster Rong Yun. So, even though His Majesty’s station was highly honored, he still did not dare to suppress Apothecary Leng with an imperial decree.
But with Su Zian’s rank, he was not qualified to know these classified details.
Now, being mentioned by Su Xi, Su Zian glared at her in annoyance and forcefully changed the subject: “Apothecary Leng hasn’t sent anyone out to see you?”
“He hasn’t.” Su Xi grumbled, feeling aggrieved.
Wasn’t it said that Apothecary Leng treated her very well? She just could not see it. From the start, Apothecary Leng had not even seen her directly with his eyes.
“Kneel again!” Compared to Su Xi, Su Zian had complete faith in it. He coldly said: “You will keep kneeling here. If you can’t invite Apothecary Leng to come, then don’t return to the manor!”
Even now, Apothecary Leng had not come out. He was probably testing this girl’s perseverance. He absolutely could not fail through the lack of a final effort.
After making it clear, Su Zian tossed his sleeves and left.
“Daddy…” Seeing Su Zian leaving without even looking back, Su Xi became so depressed that she wanted to hit her head against the wall.
Until exactly when would she have to kneel here…
From the elegant room on the second floor, that just so happened to have a view of Su Xi kneeling in the courtyard.
The corner of Su Luo’s mouth raised into a hint of a curve: “Fortunately, Apothecary Leng did not say my given name and only said the surname. Otherwise, the person kneeling there right now would be me.”
Apothecary Leng’s mouth slanted sideways a little: “You, this girl, knows how to kneel?”
She dared to kneel, he wouldn’t bear to accept it.
Seeing Su Luo smile yet remain silent, Apothecary Leng thought for a moment. Suddenly, a line, as if written by a god, came to him, “In fact, His Highness Prince Jin needs to go into seclusion to cultivate. You’ve encumbered him.”
“I’ve encumbered him?” As expected, Su Luo’s attention was instantly attracted by this. She asked in surprise: “What happened to him?”
Apothecary Leng shook his head and said faintly: “In the past half year, his promotion to the next realm is too fast. Yet, he’s had no time to properly stabilize it. This caused his foundation to be unstable. If he still won’t go into seclusion to cultivate and harmonize everything, there might be effects that are big or small on his future. ”
Su Luo was slightly startled to a pause.
Since Apothecary Leng was able to see through it, then how could Nangong Liuyun not be aware of it himself?
However, he acted so normal that even she was kept in the dark.
If Apothecary Leng had not brought it up today, she would still have been kept in the dark, not knowing anything at all.
“How long would he have to stay in seclusion?” Su Luo’s voice was very low, carrying a sense of loss.
“On the low end, half a year, high end would be three years.” In a slight joking manner, Apothecary Leng cast a quick glance at Su Luo.
“So long…” Su Luo looked towards the azure sky, murmuring to herself.
If it was before, Nangong Liuyun would definitely choose to go into seclusion without the slightest hesitation. But this half a year, because of her appearance, therefore, he remained in the imperial capital to assist her.
Moreover now, there was also the Jade Lake’s Li family, glaring like a tiger watching his prey. Even more so, at this time, he would not go into seclusion and abandon her to face them alone.
But if it’s like this, the damage to his future would be enormous.
With such extraordinary gifts like his, his future accomplishments were limitless. However, he still decided to stay by her side.
If she had not known, then it would be dismissable. Now that she knew, if she still stayed indifferent, then that’s simply being too selfish and too disgraceful!
“I’m leaving first!” Su Luo was no longer in the mood to watch the play.
