Chapter 197 - If You Offend Her Again, I'll Break Your Legs!
Lord Zhao frowned and pondered. “His surname is Ye? There doesn’t seem to be any powerful family with the surname Ye among the aristocrats… No!”
A thought suddenly came to his mind!
Wasn’t Ye Siming the person the emperor wanted to confer the title of Youth Bai Ze to a while ago?
He was also General Bai Yi’s adopted son!
Most importantly, he was now the princess’s only personal guard!
For some reason, Lord Zhao felt a chill run down his back.
Did his son offend the person he couldn’t afford to offend the most?
He carefully probed, “Zheng’er, tell Father honestly, did you offend the little princess first?”
Profligate Zhao, who was lying on the sickbed, nodded silently.
Lord Zhao gasped.
In his mind, he recalled the sinister gaze and instructions of the emperor when he went to court a while ago.
At that time, there were still a few days before the little princess went to the state school.
However, Gu Yihan left the civil and military officials behind after a court session once and sized everyone up from the throne.
Then, he said, “My precious daughter will be going to the state school in a few days. Baby Nuo has always liked to keep a low profile.
“She doesn’t ever use her status to bully others and is very easy to talk to. However, that might not be the case for me. If you have any sons or daughters in your family who love to cause trouble…
“Go back early and warn them not to offend my daughter. Otherwise…”
Gu Yihan suddenly slammed his sword on the table and leaned over to look at everyone, smiling coldly.
“I don’t care if you feel sorry for your children. I’ll definitely kill if anyone gives my Baby Nuo any grievances. I won’t stop at killing just one, I’ll add three more to the count. You guys better think about it carefully.”
At that time, the officials were trembling in fear and didn’t even dare to breathe loudly.
This was because everyone knew Gu Yihan’s reputation as a tyrant! It had spread very widely in his early years!
When Gu Yihan was 17 years old, before he had even ascended the throne, he had already started leading troops to massacre cities in the neighboring country.
Back then, he was a god of death!
Moreover, he frequently had headaches. Each time his headache acted up, someone would bleed.
He had almost killed all his siblings and ascended the throne despite all the objections.
Those who did not support him were either assassinated or tortured to death.
Everyone was deeply terrified. This was because when an emperor was smart and brutal, no matter how shrewd an official was, they wouldn’t be able to win.
However, he ended with too many killing sins on him.
In the end, he was forced to beg the heavens for a daughter, promising to stop going to wars and that he wasn’t going to kill the innocent anymore. Only then did he get this daughter!
However, this did not mean that Gu Yihan did not like to kill.
Instead, he made it clear that in the future, he was only going to kill for his daughter’s sake.
Princess Yaoguang was the emperor’s reverse scale and what he held the dearest in his heart!
Lord Zhao couldn’t help but shiver when he thought of the emperor’s expression when he said those words.
He didn’t say anything for a long time and sank into deep fear.
Seeing that he had no reaction, Madam Zhao couldn’t help but urge with tears in her eyes, “Master, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and send someone to seek justice for our Zheng’er!”
Lord Zhao suddenly woke up to his senses, but he was furious!
“You foolish woman! What do you mean you want to seek justice? Even if you don’t want to live, I want to! Do you know that Zheng’er has offended the little princess? His Majesty might just come to kill our entire family!
“It’d be considered a blessing in disguise if he doesn’t do that, yet still want to take the initiative to go and ask for an explanation?! What the hell do you want?!”
In the end, he pointed at Profligate Zhao. “You’re used to being a scoundrel and I’m busy with work and didn’t take you in hand. But if you dare to offend the little princess again in the future, I’ll break one of your legs first!”
With that, he flicked his sleeves and left.
