Looking at Jiang Peihuan, Zhao Yang coldly said, “It’s simple. If you die, no one in this world will know the secret.”
“You’re so confident you can kill the two of us?”
“If King Cheng had not been poisoned, I wouldn’t be confident. But I know that the poison in King Cheng’s body has not been completely cleared, so today is the day you two die.”
Saying this, Zhao Yang raised his long sword.
“By you alone?”
Seeing Zhao Yang rushing towards him, Xiao Nanye’s eyes revealed a hint of mockery. However, as he clashed with Zhao Yang, a coldness also appeared in his eyes.
Standing by, Jiang Peihuan noticed Zhao Yang’s fierce moves and her expression became tense. She recognized that Zhao Yang was the same mysterious man who had previously pursued them in the Western Regions.
Now, she finally understood why Zhao Yang insisted on luring them here. At first, she thought it was because of her, but it seemed the trap was set for Xiao Nanye.
Zhao Yang was strong, a master in martial arts.
As Xiao Nanye began to struggle, Jiang Peihuan quickly stepped forward to help.
Facing Jiang Peihuan’s assistance, Zhao Yang’s eyes showed no change, but he mocked, “Neither of you is a match for me. It’s better to die now and suffer less.”
As his words fell, he struck Xiao Nanye away with a palm, then aimed his sword at Jiang Peihuan.
“Now, let’s see who can save you.”
Jiang Peihuan could clearly feel the threatening presence of the blade.
Having been pushed back, Xiao Nanye looked on with concern.
Jiang Peihuan instinctively closed her eyes. However, the expected pain did not come, instead, she heard Zhao Yang’s angry shout, “What do you think you’re doing?”
There was fury in Zhao Yang’s tone. When she opened her eyes, she saw Zhao Yong, standing in front of her, protecting her.
Zhao Yong was still weak, but he blocked Zhao Yang. He whispered, “Father, if anything happens to Miss Jiang and King Cheng, it will cause a lot of trouble. Please stop.”
“Get out of the way!”
Despite Zhao Yong’s reasoning, Zhao Yang angrily rebuked him.
However, Zhao Yong remained unmoved.
At this moment, Xiao Nanye joined the fight again.
Feeling the onset of the poison inside him, Xiao Nanye’s moves became increasingly aggressive. Both Jiang Peihuan and Zhao Yong stepped in to help.
Jiang Peihuan and Zhao Yong also stepped forward to help.
With their combined effort, Xiao Nanye landed a kick on Zhao Yang’s chest, sending him flying.
Jiang Peihuan was about to deliver a finishing blow when she saw a sword piercing Zhao Yang’s heart.
The one who attacked was none other than Chu Rou, who was taken away just moments ago.
At this moment, Chu Ron’s eyes were full of rage.
Holding the sword’s hilt tightly, her eyes were fixed on Zhao Yang, “What did you mean earlier? Why did you say Qing Er is not your biological son? Why?” Chu Ron’s eyes were filled with a crimson rage.
On the other hand, Zhao Yang, with a sword plunged into his heart, had eyes filled with unwillingness and resentment.
He wanted to say something, but he couldn’t make a sound.
In the end, Chu Rou never got the answer she was looking for, as Zhao Yang drew his last breath and died.
Jiang Peihuan turned to see Xiao Nanye, whose face was pale as a ghost. When she touched his hand, she found it icy cold.
Zhao Yong had a complex look in his eyes.
Seeing Xiao Nanye in such a state, he said to Jiang Peihuan, “His Highness is suffering from the effects of the poison. We should go to my chambers.”
Having said that, Zhao Yong picked up Xiao Nanye.
Jiang Peihuan didn’t refuse and followed.
“Please prepare the herbs and hot water for me.”
By the time Zhao Yong laid Xiao Nanye on the bed, Jiang Peihuan had already written down the prescription.
Receiving the prescription from her, Zhao Yong left without a word.
Shortly after, everything Jiang Peihuan needed was brought to the room.
Xiao Nanye was shivering uncontrollably, his lips turning pueple. Jiang Peihuan undressed him and helped him into a bath. The water in the tub was hot, but as Xiao Nanye entered, the temperature rapidly cooled down.
Witnessing this, Jiang Peihuan frowned.
The herbal medicine had some effect, but it was not enough.
Taking out her silver needles, she started to perform acupuncture on Xiao Nanye.
An hour later, Xiao Nanye’s complexion began to warm up.
Just as Jiang Peihuan was putting away her needles, there was a knock at the door, “Queen Cheng?”
It was Han Feng’s voice.
Hearing him, Jiang Peihuan immediately said, “Come in.”
As soon as Jiang Peihuan’s voice fell, the door was pushed open from the outside.
Subsequently, Han Feng and Ye Xiao walked into the room together.
Seeing Xiao Nanye sitting in the bathtub, concern filled Han Feng’s eyes.
“My Queen, are you alright?”
Ye Xiao, on the other hand, turned her gaze to Jiang Peihuan. Her eyes were also full of worry. As she spoke, she instinctively examined Jiang Peihuan, and only when she noticed that Jiang Peihuan was not injured did she let out a sigh of relief.
Seeing the concern in Ye Xiao’s eyes, Jiang Peihuan softly said, “I’m fine.”
Then, Jiang Peihuan addressed Han Feng, “Get ready; we’re going back to the mansion.”
Jiang Peihuan helped Xiao Nanye get dressed, and once everything was set, Zhao Yong arrived.
The poison in his body had not yet been neutralized.
However, at this point, Jiang Peihuan couldn’t be concerned about him.
Looking at the person standing in front of her, she softly asked, “What are your plans moving forward?”
“I plan to enter the palace tomorrow to report the truth to the Emperor. As for how the Emperor decides to handle it, I will abide by his decree.”
“Thank you for today.”
After a moment of thought, Zhao Yong sincerely thanked Jiang Peihuan.
“There’s no need for thanks; I didn’t really do much.”
Having said that, Jiang Peihuan immediately departed.
After leaving the Huainan Mansion, the group hastily made their way to the Plum Garden.
However, as soon as Jiang Peihuan entered the Plum Garden, she saw Cheng Yang waiting there, holding a few medical books in her hands.
If it weren’t for Cheng Yang’s sudden appearance, Jiang Peihuan might have almost forgotten about her.
Upon seeing Jiang Peihuan, Cheng Yang quickly stepped forward to pay her respects.
“I don’t have time to talk to you today; you should go back first.”
After saying that, Jiang Peihuan proceeded to walk inside, instructing Han Feng and Ye Xiao, “Take Xiao Nanye to his room first.”
As Han Feng carried Xiao Nanye towards the room, Cheng Yang glanced at them a few times, her brows furrowing when she saw Xiao Nanye.
After a moment of thought, she decided to follow them.
