Seeing that Xiajun Yanwu was still properly locked up in the prison cell within the palace, Xie Limo heaved a sigh of relief.
This showed that Xiajun Yanwu was not the one who planned the mutiny.
At that moment, Xie Limo received a call. It was from Wang Qianjin.
“Hello? Xie Limo, aren’t you curious why I’m calling you now?”
Now that he knew Wang Qianjin was Yun Bixue’s relative, Xie Limo didn’t hate him as much. He felt as though Wang Qianjin was a familiar old friend now.
“Wang Qianjin, I can’t hide anything from you. I have to thank you for what you did last night.”
Hearing those words, Wang Qianjin understood immediately what Xie Limo wanted to say. No doubt it was about how he had deployed all the guards from the Wang family in the imperial capital to help Yun Bixue.
“Xie Limo, I did it because of my personal relationship with Yun Bixue. It is only right for me to help her. I won’t let anything happen to her. However, you failed to protect her!”
Xie Limo’s face tensed up as he admitted, “I know, but I’ll never let it happen ever again.”
“You’re the person Yun Bixue loves the most. I will trust you this time. However, I have to warn you that my guards in the imperial capital have reported to me that Princess Yanwu’s previous troop has been preparing for a mutiny. You must be prepared.”
Xie Limo turned solemn and thanked him. “I owe it to you this time.”
“If you didn’t pull all your guards together to protect Yun Bixue, you wouldn’t have missed this news too. I’ll accept your gratitude, but you don’t have to thank me anymore.”
After ending the call, Xie Limo immediately ordered his subordinates to tie Xiajun Yanwu up and pull her out of the cell, replacing her with some other substitute.
Majesty Kang and Majesty Huang were both arranging for the officials and members of the royal family to welcome His Majesty to the palace.
They suddenly heard about the news of the royal family’s hidden guards. While they were preparing, the Xie family’s guards also informed both of them about Xie Limo’s speculations.
The two of them could finally confirm how serious the matter was going to be.
They looked at each other and agreed that they had to cast their past animosity aside. They had to join forces and transfer their troops in preparation.
The two of them were biological brothers. Six years ago, they had a great relationship with each other. Now, although six years had passed, the two of them still worked well together.
At ten o’clock, Xie Limo had already arrived at the palace and had already greeted Majesty Kang and Majesty Huang.
With the directing order, the ceremony officially began, and the crowd proceeded towards the royal tomb.
Hao’er was dressed in a somber white robe as he trailed behind Majesty Huang. The look on his face was solemn.
It was an unusual expression for a five-year-old like him, but Hao’er simply looked stern and solemn now.
Xie Limo was now a father too. Looking at the young Hao’er, his heart couldn’t help but ache for him. He walked over quietly and patted his head.
Xiajun Zihao raised his head. Realizing that it was Uncle Xie, he glanced around habitually to look for Yun Bixue by his side.
Xie Limo looked at him silently, and Xiajun Zihao finally blinked his big eyes.
Majesty Kang couldn’t help but turn around to look at Hao’er too. He had been overwhelmed with misery the entire night, and he hadn’t recovered from his agony yet.
Looking at Hao’er now, his heartbeats began to speed up again.
Hao’er blinked at Majesty Kang before lowering his head and walking over.
Majesty Kang almost stopped in his tracks. Looking at Hao’er blinking earlier, he couldn’t help but be reminded of the child’s biological mother. The two of them were really almost identical!
This child… Was Hao’er really his child?
Xiajun Yanting’s heart thumped erratically. At that very moment, he had made up his mind.
Despite not having adequate proof, he wouldn’t let anything happen to Hao’er today.
