Chapter 442: Don’t Forget What You Promised

Xiao Yi Lin’s expression instantly turned ugly after hearing the crowd’s response.

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

”Look, everyone does not think there’s a problem with what I did, it’s your actions that lack the demeanor of a Duke.”

Seeing the ministers down below making a fuss, Xiao Qi Feng’s gently smiling face instantly became pale.

”That’s enough.”

Xiao Qi Feng’s voice was not loud, but the crowd could hear him clearly. They unconsciously looked towards Xiao Qi Feng. Seeing Xiao Qi Feng’s ugly expression they all immediately kept quiet, not daring to say anything else.

”Your majesty, please forgive us.”

Xiao Qi Feng looked at Xiao Yi Lin: “Tian Chang, handle as you deem fit,” He initially wanted to be the peacemaker, but it seemed there was no need to do so.

Qiao Tian Chang’s eyebrows were twitching, he was waiting for those words.


Xiao Yi Lin looked at Xiao Qi Feng, he had an ugly expression, he had an angry expression when he looked at Xiao Qi Feng.

Such a decision to Xiao Yi Lin was equivalent to going against him, smacking him in the face in front of so many people.

After the imperial court was dismissed, Xiao Yi Lin looked at Qiao Tian Chang sitting by the side, he said coldly: “You think you can defeat Xiao Residence? Naive.”

”We’ll just wait and see if it’s naive or not,” Qiao Tian Chang left without turning his head after saying it.

Ning Meng Yao laid on Qiao Tian Chang’s lap, listening to his words, she sneered: “Tian Chang, do you think Xiao Yi Lin has any bargaining chips?” He would not act like that if he did not have any bargaining chips.

Confronting the Emperor in front of so many ministers, the criminal charge was not a joke, but Xiao Qi Feng did not take action and even passed the matter to them.

Other than wanting to give them face, there might be other reasons involved.

Qiao Tian Chang furrowed his brows slightly: “What do you mean?”

”I’m just simply guessing,” Ning Meng Yao touched her nose and said in embarrassment.

Qiao Tian Chang reached out and touched Ning Meng Yao’s round cheeks, there was a faint smile at the corner of his lips: “Perhaps your guess is correct.”

Ning Meng Yao blinked her eyes and looked confusingly at Qiao Tian Chang: “What do you mean?”

”Nothing, your current task is to take good care of yourself and the child, leave the other matters to me,” A single sentence of leaving everything else to him had supported Ning Meng Yao.

Ning Meng Yao chuckled and nodded her head: “Alright, I’ll just wait.”


After Xiao Yi Lin returned to the Xiao residence, he gave out a series of orders.

At that moment, the bookshelf in the study shifted to the side, an ugly person walked out. If Ning Meng Yao and the others saw him, they would definitely recognize him as Nangong Yue.

There were no changes in Xiao Yi Lin’s expression when he saw Nangong Yue walking out.

”It seems that Duke Xiao has already made a decision,” Nangong Yue already knew about what happened in front of the throne.

Xiao Yi Lin looked coldly at Nangong Yue, he had a bloodthirsty expression: “I hope Prince Nangong can fulfill what you promised this Duke.”

”Naturally,” Nangong Yue raised his brows and smiled, but that smile was weird, but Xiao Yi Lin did not notice it.

After Xiao Zi Xuan’s limbs were crippled by Duke Xiao, many from Ling Residence began to take advantage of the situation. If it wasn’t for her abundant dowry, she would have become an empty shell right now.

The people serving Xiao Zi Xuan were her heartfelt servants, but they were quickly losing patience from being tortured by her.

When she still had her limbs, she was able to torment others. Now that they were gone, she tormented others even more.

Everyone was being scolded, Xiao Zi Xuan even asked a few servant girls to harm themselves, if they did not oblige, the secret soldiers would take action.

They were still able to resist once or twice, but after multiple times, they knew that the more they resisted, Xiao Zi Xuan would make them feel even more miserable.

Because of the secret soldiers’ existence, they did not dare to be disrespectful to Xiao Zi Xuan, they could only quietly endure Xiao Zi Xuan’s abuse, however, they had reached their limits.

On normal days, they tried their best not to appear in front of Xiao Zi Xuan, even so, Xiao Zi Xuan still thought of ways to cause them trouble.

Only allowed on

When Ling Luo walked in, he heard a scream, he couldn’t help but furrowed his brows when he heard the sound.
