Chapter 572 – The Ghost King’s Return Part 5

    Chapter 572 - The Ghost King's Return Part 5

    A chill ran down his spine when he thought about that. He had already inwardly scolded that dumbass Lin Xin ten thousand times.

    "We also have another matter to announce," The Emperor shifted his gaze toward Yi Shao Chen as he continued, "We will be making an official announcement in a couple of days in decreeing King Chen to be the Crown Prince!"

    Even though he was greatly displeased by Liu Yu's action and similarly disliked the Empress and Yi Shao Chen due to that, it was undeniable that Yi Shao Chen had a close connection with the Ouyang family.

    Otherwise, the Ouyang family wouldn't have let him transport the medicinal plants.

    He would decree Yi Shao Chen to be the Crown Prince just by that point...

    Yi Shao Xuan's complexion turned ashen. He didn't expect that not only did his Imperial father robbed him of his power, he also made Yi Shao Chen the Crown Prince at such a moment.

    How could he stand it?

    Yi Shao Chen had a calm and collected expression in comparison to Yi Shao Xuan's anger and resentment. He just replied with a faint smile, "Thank you so much, Imperial father!"

    Since the Ouyang family swore to never be involved with the battle for imperial power, he was confident that he would be able to succeed the throne

    Thus, he had such an indifferent expression...

    "Younger master Ouyang, please deliver those medicinal plants to the King Chen manor later. I will no longer be staying here." Mu Ru Yue looked at Ouyang Yun Jin as she said that.

    Ouyang Yun Jin immediately stood usaid with a faint smile, "Lady Mu, do you need me to send you out?"

    "No need," Mu Ru Yue shook her head before she continued, "You just need to send those medicinal plants to me. Mo Mo, let's go."

    She held on Mo Xi's hand before she headed to the sunlight outside of the Imperial study room upon saying that.

    The Emperor couldn't help but be stupefied as he watched the leaving slender figure under the sunlight. He had always thought that Ouyang Yun Jin just had admiration for Mu Ru Yue, but it seemed that it currently wasn't such a case.

    It was as though Mu Ru Yue held a superior position above both of the lords...

    'I mustn't offend that girl no matter what from now on! I must place more importance on Yi Shao Chen as well...'


    Lin Xin was still dreaming about being promoted before a group of guards suddenly barged into his room. They just wordlessly restrained him and sent him to a prison cell.


    The large door of the prison cell was slammed shut. Lin Xin immediately leaped toward the door and yelled, "You are the subordinates of King Chen, right? No! King Chen won't be able to do this. Otherwise, His Highness Xuan won't let you off!"

    "King Chen?" The jailer had already gotten Lord Wang's instruction. He couldn't help but sniggered after hearing what Lin Xin said. He then continued, "King Xuan? I don't know which King Xuan you are referring to. We were ordered by the crown prince to arrest all of you."

    Lin Xin was stunned as he replied, "King Xuan is naturally His Highness Xuan, the third son of His Majesty. Also, what crown prince are you talking about? When did the Kingdom of Ling Yun has a crown prince?"

    "Haha! The King Xuan that you mentioned had been demoted to be King Xian and will be under house arrest for three years. As for the crown prince, it is definitely the previous Highness Chen."

    Lin Xin was startled before he suddenly yelled out, "You must be lying. Impostering a crown prince will lead to the obliteration of your family line. Moreover, how can King Xuan be demoted?"

    The jailer snorted coldly as he explained, "It is all due to King Xian's stupid subordinates that dared to rob the Ouyang family's possession. Our crown prince was transporting precious medicinal plants for the Ouyang family. Some of the them were also priceless, but was snatched away by some fools. The people from the Ouyang family were enraged so King Xian was naturally implicated."

    Lin Xin's leg softened and gave way at this instant, making him sit on the ground.

    His complexion was gravely pale with despair filled eyes.
