Chapter 571: Suspect
Tianling Imperial Palace.
Jiang Yucheng came to Huayang Palace in a hurry.
When the palace maids saw her, they bowed respectfully.
“Greetings, Prince Consort.”
Jiang Yucheng asked in a low voice, “Wheres the Third Princess”
A palace maid said, “The Third Princess was just resting at the side palace…”
When Jiang Yucheng heard this, he immediately went to the side palace.
The few palace maids immediately stopped him.
“Prince Consort, the Third Princess hasnt been sleeping well for the past few days.
Now that she has managed to fall asleep with much difficulty, why dont you wait first”
Jiang Yuchengs gaze turned cold.
“I have things to discuss with the Third Princess.
If you delay it, can you take responsibility for it”
The few palace maids were taken aback, and they looked at each other awkwardly. Chan Yi has instructed that we have to stop whoever wants to see the princess these two days, but this person is the Prince Consort after all…
Jiang Yucheng raised his legs and walked forward.
Just as he was about to reach the door, Chan Yi—who was standing at the door—bowed.
“Prince Consort, the Third Princess is resting now.
I hope youll rest first.”
Jiang Yucheng sneered.
“I am the Third Princesss Prince Consort.
Do I really need to ask you about whether I can see the Third Princess”
Chan Yi knew that he was really enraged, so she immediately kneeled down.
“I wouldnt dare! But the Third Princess—”
“I will naturally take responsibility for everything!” As Jiang Yucheng talked, he had already walked around her and reached the door as he pushed it to enter.
Chan Yi watched on nervously.
Jiang Yucheng glanced at her coldly and opened the door.
He walked straight in, and after circling past the screen, he saw Shangguan Wan sleeping on a bed.
Hearing the commotion, she furrowed her brows and opened her eyes.
“…Yucheng Youre here”
Shangguan Wan looked exhausted with two eyebags below her eyes; she clearly hadnt been resting well lately.
When she realized that Jiang Yucheng had barged in, slight anger flashed across her face.
“Chan Yi, what did I tell you!”
Chan Yi looked down.
“I was useless.
Third Princess, please punish me!”
Jiang Yucheng walked over.
“Dont blame her.
I was too worried about you and forced my way in.
You know that they cant stop me either.”
Shangguan Wans expression looked better.
“Go and kneel outside for four hours.”
“Yes!” acknowledged Chan Yi as she obediently kneeled down.
Jiang Yucheng sat down beside Shangguan Wan and tidied her slightly messy hair.
“Have you not been sleeping well lately Why didnt you light some incense”
Shangguan Wan lay back down again.
“I did, but it didnt work.”
She hesitated for a moment before she whispered, “For some reason, Ive just been very distracted… I even had nightmares a few times…”
Jiang Yucheng reassured her.
Shangguan Wan willingly asked, “Speaking of which, why did you come here today”
Jiang Yuchengs eyes flashed slightly.
“I was quite free today, so I wanted to come over and see you.
Also, I heard that you summoned Yang Qiner into the palace”
Shangguan Wans lips curved up without much smiling intent. He really came here for this.
Jiang Yucheng saw her honest face and didnt know how to ask.
After some time, he said, “Did you not send her back yet”
Shangguan Wan smiled with even deeper meaning.
I asked her to come over and told her that everything was fine in the Tianling God Realm and that the Long Yuan Sword was still there.
Everything she said previously was false.”
Jiang Yucheng had actually already guessed this, so he wasnt shocked.
“Isnt this the best outcome As for Yang Qiner… She lied to us and is in the wrong, but I believe she just misunderstood and didnt do it on purpose.
After all, nobody would take their lives as a joke, right You should just punish her lightly and let her off.”
Shangguan Wan laughed.
“What are you worried about I saw that she still admitted her mistakes, so I didnt pursue the matter and asked her to stay in the palace for two more days.
What, is there a problem”
Jiang Yuchengs face finally became cold.
“Waner, youre too impulsive.
She does have a Dijing Yuan meridian, but weve previously already agreed not to make risky moves.
How can you lock her up in the palace Do you think I dont know what youre planning to do”
Shangguan Wan looked at him coldly, and her gaze became cold.
“You came here just to tell me this”
Jiang Yucheng saw her stubborn attitude and was furious as he suddenly stood up.
A knocking sound was heard.
“Third Princess, I heard that you have already woken up.
I prepared some longan lily porridge for you.
Do you want some”
Hearing this voice, Jiang Yucheng was stunned as he turned around to look. This is clearly Yang Qiners voice!
He looked at Shangguan Wan with many doubts.
But Shangguan Wan didnt look at him as she lazily said, “Come in.”
The door opened, and the woman walked in with a bowl of porridge.
It was actually Yang Qiner.
Jiang Yucheng rapidly scanned her body and realized that she looked normal.
“Greetings, Prince Consort.” Yang Qiner bowed to him again before she placed the porridge down.
“I already said a few times that I let you stay here because I like you.
You can just leave the servants to do these things.”
Yang Qiner smiled curtly.
Shangguan Wan waved her hands.
“I still have things to discuss with the Prince Consort.
You can go down first.”
Remember to eat this porridge; it wont be good if it gets cold.” Then, Yang Qiner respectfully exited and remembered to close the door.
After she left, Shangguan Wan raised her chin at Jiang Yucheng.
“If you still doubt me, why dont you check the porridge”
Her words were filled with thorns, and her gaze was sharp.
Jiang Yucheng felt awkward for some reason. Perhaps I really misunderstood… But her emotions has always been unstable previously, and with Yang Qiners incident now, I cant help but be worried and think that she—
“I thought wrong.” Jiang Yucheng put his fists near his lips and coughed.
“Waner, dont be angry.
I was wrong.”
Shangguan Wan didnt say anything and just looked at him like that.
Jiang Yucheng felt very uneasy under her gaze and could only say, “You havent been resting well lately, so I wont disturb you.
If theres anything else, Ill be here; you dont have to worry.”
Then, without waiting for Shangguan Wan to reply, he turned around to leave.
After his figure disappeared outside the palace for some time, Shangguan Wan lightly grunted and picked up the bowl of porridge.
She gently stirred it with the spoon and saw some traces of blood.
Without a change in expression, she finished the porridge.
After some time, Yang Qiner silently came back.
Seeing that Shangguan Wan had already finished the porridge, she quickly retracted her gaze.
Shangguan Wan thought for a moment and said, “You can go back today.”
Yang Qiner was a little shocked.
“Didnt you previously say that it would take five days—”
“You just stayed in the palace for a day or two, and he came here with a lot of suspicions.
Its not suitable if you stay any longer.” Jiang Yucheng mightve believed me today, but this person has always been doubtful.
Its very possible that he will continue checking.
Yang Qiner hesitated for a moment.
