Xiao Qi Feng was not satisfied with how things had become. He had lost the decisive opportunity because of the obstruction by members in the imperial court. Because of that, Xiao Qi Feng had some suspicion towards them.
Just when a great wave hit the Li Family, Marquis Ling, who had been keeping a low profile recently, laughed in his study room: “Haha, I found it, I’ve finally found it,” The people they sent out finally found that army, everything would be simple as long as he brought the army out, Xiao Empire would soon belong to his Ling Family.
Thinking that he would be taking that throne not long in the future, Marquis Ling’s eyes were filled with fervent joy.
Ling Luo frowned when he saw Marquis Ling acting like that, he felt that this matter seemed to be…… too simple.
”Father, I feel this matter is too simple, something does not seem to be right,” Ling Luo said while feeling worried.
Even when they were very careful in their actions, there were still some noticeable traces, how could Xiao Qi Feng, the monarch of an empire, not know about it?
It does not match Xiao Qi Feng’s character, he was considered a very shrewd person, it was impossible for him not to notice it.
”There’s no need to be so careful, even if Xiao Qi Feng has many methods, he had just ascended the throne not long ago, how much authority could he have?” Other than people from Qiao Tian Chang’s side, there were not many people in the court loyal to him. Marquis Ling was very confident about it.
Ling Luo still wanted to say something, but seeing Marquis Ling unwilling to talk about it, he could only suppress all his worries.
In the shadows, Ling Luo had sent people to keep an eye out on Qiao Tian Chang and others, afraid something would come up.
At the same time, the person Ling Luo sent to investigate Xiao Zi Xuan had returned.
”How is it? What have you found out after so many days?”
”Madam had already cut off all ties with Duke Xiao.”
His subordinate’s words caused Ling Luo to narrow his eyes, there were thoughts in his eyes, it was not known what he was thinking about.
”When did this happen?”
”It was that day when madam was called by Duke Xiao to return to the Xiao residence.
”Do you know why?” Ling Luo narrowed his eyes and looked at the person in front of him.
It was no wonder why Xiao Zi Xuan had such an expression that day, that was the reason.
The corner of his lips curled up, there was a mocking smile on his face, his expression was also sinister.
”It’s because madam had stolen the secret order, Duke Xiao was so angry that he cut all relations to madam.
Ling Luo nodded expressing he understood, he waved his hand and sent him away.
Now that Xiao Zi Xuan had no more relationship with Xiao Residence and that they had also found that mysterious army, there was no need for him to continue putting up a show of affection towards Xiao Zi Xuan.
With such thoughts, Ling Luo had a satisfied smile on his face.
It was awfully messy outside, but Ning Meng Yao seemed to be isolated from the world while in the General’s Residence. Every day, she would eat and sleep, sleep and eat, after she was three months pregnant, Ning Meng Yao would easily feel sleepy, two-third of her time was spent sleeping every day.
Qiao Tian Chang would definitely feel worried if it wasn’t for Qing Shuang and Old Man Hei saying it was fine and very normal.
On this day, Ning Meng Yao finally woke up, she looked at Qing Xuan: “How is the workshop construction going?” It had been almost two months, it should be almost done, right?
”It’s already halfway done. More time is spent on it because it’s a little huge, but it should be finished constructing in no more than a month,” Qing Xuan looked at Ning Meng Yao, gave some thought and said solemnly.
”Okay, no need to rush, make sure the building is sturdy,” The place she built was huge, it was understandable that time was needed.
”Go and inform Prince Qi to come over, tell him I have some things to discuss with him.”
Xiao Qi Tian came over two hours later, he looked at Ning Meng Yao with excitement: “Meng Yao, you called for me?”
”Yup, how are the preparations in the shop? It’s almost the new year, after the new year, we can directly begin after preparing some stock.
”Don’t worry about my side, it’s been prepared, just waiting for the items on your side to be ready and we can begin, but it’s best if we wait until things on our side are settled before starting,” Xiao Qi Tian recalled what Xiao Qi Feng told him, his lips curled up displaying a cold smile.
