The duo looked up in unison and saw that it was Jiang Yucheng.
The latter walked over with a slight smile on his face.
“Waner, I was just about to go into the palace to see you and discuss our wedding affairs when you came.”
Hearing this, Shangguan Wan felt that he was sweet and that he looked much better.
As Jiang Yucheng sat down beside the duo, he seemingly said nonchalantly, “Why didnt you tell me earlier You came here, but there was actually nobody in the mansion who went to serve you.
We really didnt treat you well.”
I just suddenly felt like coming, so I brought Chan Yi along.
Besides, isnt Yuzhi accompanying me” said Shangguan Wan with a smile.
“Oh” Jiang Yucheng glanced at Jiang Yuzhi.
“What were you guys talking about just now”
His gaze slowly swept across Jiang Yuzhi, which instantly made her feel guilty.
She lowered her head and muttered, “N-nothing much…”
“She said that she hasnt been out of the residence during this period of time and doesnt know what interesting things have been going on outside.
Hence, she wanted me to tell her about this.” Shangguan Wan silently continued and glared at Jiang Yucheng in seeming anger.
“Shes your sister after all.
How can you just lock her inside the mansion Look at how wronged she is! Why dont you let her off this time”
Jiang Yuzhi secretly gave her a thankful glance.
“This…” Jiang Yucheng glanced at the duo and laughed.
“Waner, since you personally put in a word for her, theres no reason why I would decline.
Yuzhi, I wont ground you any longer from now onward.”
Jiang Yuzhi looked up in surprise.
“But you must remember whatever I instructed you earlier.
If you dont do it… Nobody can help you.”
“I know! Thank you, Brother! Thank you, Third Princess!” Jiang Yuzhi had long been spoiled rotten, and she came out today just to request this from her brother.
She didnt expect the deal to be sealed before she even spoke.
How could she not be happy At that moment, she directly treated Shangguan Wan as her benefactor.
Jiang Yucheng smiled and handed his Cosmic Ring over.
“I know that you wanted to go out long ago.
Take this, and you can buy whatever you want today.
However, you must bring Uncle Fu with you.”
Uncle Fu was an experienced one in the Jiang Residence, and he was also an advanced stage-seven warrior.
With him around, he could protect Jiang Yuzhi.
Jiang Yuzhi squealed excitedly as she hurriedly snatched the Cosmic Ring over.
It was as though she was afraid that Jiang Yucheng would change his mind.
She quickly said, “I know! Thanks, Brother!”
Before she could even finish her sentence, she had already run out.
“Uncle Fu! Uncle Fu, lets go!”
When Jiang Yuzhi disappeared from his field of vision, Jiang Yucheng heaved a sigh of relief.
He then looked toward Shangguan Wan.
“Waner, you came here today—”
He didnt believe that Shangguan Wan really came here on impulse.
Shangguan Wan stared at him for quite a while before picking a few parts of whatever Zuo Mingxi said today and told him about it.
The more she said, the colder Jiang Yuchengs face got.
“…It was roughly like this, but Physician Zuo is only slightly suspicious now.
However, he doesnt have much evidence.
I thought about it for some time and felt that I needed to discuss this with you,” said Shangguan Wan as she judged Jiang Yuchengs expression. It seems like… He has nothing to do with this…
In her heart, she was also reluctant to suspect Jiang Yucheng.
But she had no choice, so she could only test him out. Now, it seems like I was overthinking.
But if this has nothing to do with him, who could it be
Jiang Yucheng furrowed his brows tightly.
“Only the same few people keep going in and out of Qingfeng Palace.
Could it really be that one of them did something which made His Majesty…”
He stood up in frustration and kept pacing back and forth as he kept thinking about who could possibly have the chance to attack.
Actually, he had long felt that something was amiss, but he just didnt know where the problem lay. According to what Zuo Mingxi said, perhaps… I should really start to investigate now!
“What about the other two heavenly doctors What did they say”
Shangguan Wan helplessly said, “I havent asked them yet.
Its Physician Zuos shift today, so the other two havent entered the palace yet.”
Jiang Yucheng boomed, “Since Physician Zuo could detect the issue, the other two should be able to as well.
However, they havent made a move so far or stated their stance…”
“Youre saying that the two of them mightve done it” Shangguan Wan was dazed for a while and immediately rejected the thought.
I meticulously picked those two people out, and they have followed me for many years.
Its impossible that they will betray—”
“When has betrayal never existed in this world” said Jiang Yucheng lightly with a dark expression.
Shangguan Wan seemed to be attacked by something, and her expression changed slightly.
The atmosphere between the duo froze for a moment before Shangguan Wan said, “Then… We have to check on this later.”
Jiang Yucheng nodded.
“This matter is serious.
You must be careful.”
Shangguan Wan seemed to have thought of something and didnt continue.
Jiang Yucheng calculated the time in his heart. I still have to deal with the remaining half…
“Yucheng, quite a few ministers have been rushing us to settle the wedding date in court.
What do you think” Shangguan Wan recovered her senses, and her first sentence stunned Jiang Yucheng.
“What Why did they suddenly start to rush us Didnt we agree that it would be in these few months”
“Theyre rushing us to settle the specific date.
Even though we already have a marriage agreement, we havent settled the wedding date yet.
Theyre naturally anxious about it.
Also, they didnt suddenly rush us.
It has already been a while, but… You just didnt care about it.” Shangguan Wans voice had a touch of dissatisfaction. Every time I bring up the issue of settling the wedding date, Jiang Yucheng always delays it and asks me to wait and wait again.
At first, he said it was because Shangguan Yue just died and that we couldnt get together too quickly.
But shes almost been dead for two years now, and its almost the time taken to observe ones filial piety.
Im the one in control of the Tianling Dynasty now.
Do I really need to consider a dead person before I get married or not
Besides, it has already been more than half a year since Jiang Yucheng and I had our marriage agreement, but we havent even settled our wedding date.
Every time I think about it, I feel very uncomfortable.
Jiang Yucheng immediately went forward, pulled her hands, and patiently advised, “Waner, its not that I dont care.
Its clear that I care too much, and thats why Im so careful! Weve just stabilized our foundation… The most important thing is that… His Majesty hasnt woken up yet…”
“If Father doesnt wake up for the rest of his life, are we not going to marry then” said Shangguan Wan angrily.
Jiang Yucheng was stumped.
“According to the Tianling Dynastys rules, only someone who is married can officially ascend the throne.
Our wedding day is also the day Ill ascend the throne.
Even though I am in power now, Im still a Third Princess after all.
As long as we dont get married, I wont be legitimate!” Shangguan Wan stared at Jiang Yucheng and said every word clearly: “I dont plan to wait any longer!”
