“That’s reasonable!” Luo Qing Chen gave a serious nod to Nan Yi Sheng.
For some reason, seeing her in those dark clothes, when those clear eyes trembled, his heart strangely throbbed.
[Ding, affection has increased by ten. Mission completion rate is now 10%.]
This sudden increase in affection made Luo Qing Chen stare at Nan Yi Sheng with a new kind of understanding. He should be calm on the surface, but passionate deep down!
Otherwise, how could he have affection for an ‘assassin’.
Luo Qing Chen had just finished and couldn’t come back to her senses when Nan Yi Sheng was already walking towards the prison.
The two guards instantly gave a bow, “Greetings, your highness.”
“Un.” He nodded and looked at the door with a renewed calm look, “Have minister Diao Shang release the maid.”
The two looked at each other before giving another bow, “Yes.”
As soon as their voices fell, Nan Yi Sheng turned back to Luo Qing Chen and Dong’er, “You two stand on the side first. Minister Diao Shang is someone who holds grudges.”
His voice was very calm, but there was a bit of concern in it.
Without knowing why, Luo Qing Chen liked this feeling, very much…...
After a while, minister Diao Shang came out of the prison with two old maids who were holding an unconscious Qiu Ju whose face was pale.
She saw Nan Yi Sheng and gave a bow before a different expression appeared in her eyes, “Your highness, were you asked to do this by others?”
“Whether I was or not is not up to you to ask.” Nan Yi Sheng gave a chuckle. His tone wasn’t serious, but it made minister Diao Shang tremble.
She quickly gave a bow and said, “This servant doesn’t dare.”
“Your highness, please be assured, there’s no danger to her life.” Minister Diao Shang immediately replied, afraid of angering Nan Yi Sheng.
She knew better than anyone that the crown prince wasn’t someone who could be bullied by his little brothers, he was just hiding his talons.
An hour later, Qiu Ju woke up in the maid quarters. Although she was very weak, Luo Qing Chen confirmed that her life wasn’t in danger after taking her pulse.
She should have lost too much blood, which was why she had fainted.
“You, you, let’s see if you dare to talk nonsense in the future!” Dong’er scolded her while feeding her medicine.
Qiu Ju heard this and her tears started to fall. Her voice was very weak as she said, “I won’t, I won’t…..I won’t dare in the future……”
Luo Qing Chen didn’t blame her since Qiu Ju had suffered this time, so she wouldn’t dare do it in the future.
At the end of this matter, Nan Yi Sheng didn’t even say a thing about her holding him hostage.
He even…..didn’t care about the chocolate chip she fed him…...
At the same time, in the Starlight Hall.
The eunuch lit a lamp and muttered, “Your highness seems to be in a good mood today.”
“Un.” He narrowed his eyes to look at the dagger on the table as the image of their parting appeared in his mind.
“I’ve already had the maids send the person you want back to the maid quarters. If miss assassin doesn’t have any other orders, I’ll be heading back first.” His eyes had a faint sparkle and his lips were curled in a faint smile as he looked into her clear eyes.
Her right hand suddenly grabbed his left hand and put the dagger in his hand, “Very good! It’s been hard on you!”
As soon as her voice fell, she grabbed Dong’er’s hand and ran off, not even looking back…...
