Xiao Qi Feng glanced at Qiao Tian Chang and then he pushed the hand that was supporting him.
“You guys. Follow me.” Xiao Qi Feng said. Qiao Tian Chang and the rest exchanged glances and then followed him to the Imperial Study Room.
After getting there, Xiao Qi Feng searched the shelf for a while then took out something.
“The purpose of those people should be this.”
Qiao Tian Chang opened it with some doubt. There was a box inside it. He opened the box. The thing inside was actually something familiar to Ning Meng Yao. This thing was also seen in Miao Jiang but it was much larger than this.
It turned out to be a landmine as horror flashed in her eyes.
“How did you get this thing?”
“Actually, this is not what they want but the things beneath it. You will know it when you see it.” Xiao Qi Feng did not answer Ning Meng Yao as he just looked at the box before replying in a complicated tone.
Ning Meng Yao quickly took the box and took out the landmine. She saw a piece of old paper at the bottom of the box.
Ning Meng Yao’s expression became very complicated looking at the piece of old paper. The method of making landmines was written on the paper.
Looking at the paper and recalling the things in Miao Jiang, Ning Meng Yao had doubts rising once again. What kind of a person was the founding Princess, or another question was what was her true identity in the modern era.
“Since you have this in your hand then you can exchange it with them for an antidote. You can make a copy for them.” Ning Meng Yao said to Xiao Qi Feng.
“We have an ancestral practice in the Xiao family. This sort of a thing cannot be exposed unless necessary. If people’s lives were to fall in danger due to the ambitions of a member of the Xiao family, then they could use the hidden power to clear out those around the Emperor.” Xiao Qi Feng told them about the ancestral practice of the Xiao Empire while shaking his head.
Ning Meng Yao became even more curious after hearing it. If this was the ancestral practice, then why was this ancestral practice only applied to them and why was there no such ancestral practice followed by the Xiao family living in the West Coast? Not only did they not have such a practice, they even thought about getting their hands on these things.
“Xiao Family of the West Coast…”
“I can assure you that the Xiao family of the West Coast is not related to the elder Princess because this ancestral practice was set by her.” It had been practiced for hundreds of years.
Ning Meng Yao looked at Xiao Qi Feng in shock. After so long, only now did she find out that the Xiao family of the West Coast were not the descendants of the elder Princess? But if that was the case, why did they claim to be so?
Ning Meng Yao realized that this matter seemed to be even more confusing now. She had always felt that she needed to go to the West Coast in order to understand some things. She even felt that she might find something about them crossing to the other world and the truth about those two elder princesses.
“Then who is the one behind all these?”
“They have already left.” Xiao Qi Feng answered directly.
“Huh? Left? How come?” Why would they leave without getting what they came for? This was not possible right?
“Three months ago. I don’t know why, but they left in a hurry.” At that time, the things about Miao Jiang were about to be revealed to them and they had suddenly let go of the things that they could have grasped easily. This was enough to explain that something more important had happened.
“Oh, I see. So, what are your plans now?”
“I’m going to clean up the remaining mess in the Xiao Empire and then pass the Xiao Empire to Qi Tian.” He only had three months to live and this was all he could do. Xiao Qi Feng lowered his eyes and thought coldly.
Qiao Tian Chang looked at Xiao Qi Feng, displeased. Why did it feel that he was handing over the future matters?
“I do not think that those people will give up easily.”
Judging by what Xiao Qi Feng said, it was obvious that those people were determined to get those things. How could they give up before they had their hands on them?
Although they had left, perhaps they would come back soon. Then, what would they do by then?
“I understand your concerns. That’s why I have to make the Xiao Empire more powerful than before.” Only by making the Xiao Empire more powerful than before would they be able to protect themselves from those people.
Xiao Qi Feng looked like he was giving a profound lesson. He did not want Xiao Qi Tian to walk down the same path as him.
