Xiao Qi Feng’s expression was really ugly. Nangong Che and the others were unable to do anything even if they were angry since their behaviors were being suspected. Before everyone’s doubts were dispelled, it would be hard for them to remain in Xiao Empire and they would have to give Xiao Empire an explanation.
Lei An brought people to the temporary residence. Feng Shuo sat in his seat as he watched the development of things. His gaze landed on the scholar and he had faint ridicule hanging at the corner of his mouth.
The imperial doctor arrived very soon. He checked the scholar’s pulse and said: “It’s true that this man is injured, but it isn’t very serious.”
”Then why did he vomit blood?” Xiao Qi Feng ignored Nangong Che’s change in expression and asked coldly.
”He received some sort of a backlash. As for why, this humble doctor does not know,” The imperial doctor thought before speaking.
”This is impossible, you all are slandering us,” Nangong Che immediately jumped up and said in anger.
Nangong Yue wished to give Nangong Che two tight slaps. Was it time to say such things? What a fool.
The old imperial doctor had an ugly expression. He looked at Prince Nangong and said with anger: “Prince Nangong, what do you mean? Are you doubting my medical ethics?” Those who practiced medicine, especially those who were highly skilled, would be very angry when being doubted, especially at such a moment.
Nangong Che looked at the old imperial doctor and snorted: “Who knows whether you are all colluding with one another.”
At that moment, it was not only Nangong Yue, but even the scholar was also looking at Nangong Che with a pale expression. This fool.
Xiao Qi Feng sneered as he looked at Nangong Che, but Feng Shuo was the one who spoke in disdain: “Did Prince Nangong see anyone go out?”
”This has nothing to do with Prince Feng,” Nangong Che was completely unhappy.
Feng Shuo smiled and no longer spoke.
Xiao Qi Feng looked at Nangong Che: “I do not think Prince Feng said anything wrong. Nobody here went out just now, so how could Prince Nangong say we’re colluding? I wish to ask, how are we to collude with each other?”
Nangong Che did not say anything, but his meaning was really obvious.
Since it’s so, then I’ll invite the famous doctors from all over the capital. Each one of us shall pick two doctors to examine this man. How about it?”
”Who knows if you would pull anymore tricks,” Nangong Che was still feeling unwilling.
Xiao Qi Feng spoke instead: “Each envoy can send someone they trust to tag along.”
Since he had said to such a point, if Nangong Che still disagreed, he would be telling everyone present that Ling Empire was really up to something.
Before Nangong Che had the chance to reject, Nangong Yue said: “Alright.”
Nangong Che turned his head and looked at Nangong Yue: “You do not have the right to call the shots.”
The scholar frowned, he currently did not have the time to be bothered about Nangong Che. What he wanted to know was how Qiao Tian Chang and the others were able to obtain the corpse.
Feng Empire and the other few empires sent several people along, and Xiao Empire was the same. In the end, Nangong Che was forced to send a few people to tag along as well.
After an hour, Lin Zi You brought a crowd back. There were over a dozen doctors following behind and they were the most famous doctors in the capital. Their medical skills were obvious to all.
”We humble commoners greets his majesty.”
”Get up, I’ve called you all over today because the envoy from Ling Empire is not well and I want all of you to have a look at him.”
The doctors looked at each other as they tried to guess what it could be that the imperial doctor in the palace could not identify? But they could only keep such thoughts in their hearts and did not dare voice it out.
Each empire chose a doctor, and they took turns to check the scholar’s pulse. The conclusion they arrived at was almost the same as the old imperial doctor.
He vomited blood was not because of his old injuries acting up, it was due to receiving backlash.
”See them off. Remember, do not speak about this outside,” Xiao Qi Feng looked coldly at them.
”Yes, your majesty. We commoners will keep that in mind,” The crowd did not dare object as they hurriedly spoke.
After they left, Xiao Qi Feng looked at Nangong Che: “I wonder what Prince Nangong still has to say?”
”Everyone went together to find them this time, and they were all personally chosen. Could it be that Prince Nangong still wishes to say that we were colluding? Or do you wish to say that our few empires are colluding to frame you?” The Prince of Hai Empire smiled as he looked at Nangong Che, the way he looked caused everyone to feel like he was gloating at Nangong Che’s misfortune.
