Chapter 413 Where’s the Military Medallion of the Former Dynasty?
“Prince Yi, are you also looking for the former princess?” Ning Xueyan looked up and asked with a smile. Since he had no intention of hiding it from her, she asked him directly, without attempting to hide anything as well.
“I heard about the news of the former Great Elder Princess in regions south of the Yangtze River. Everyone thought that she had been in regions south of the Yangtze River all that time. n.o.body expected that she had come to the capital and lived here for three years. The Lord Protector’s Manor’s protection was very adequate. My two nephews have made a great effort to try and find her.”
The corners of Ao Chenyi’s thin lips lifted slightly. His gaze fell on Ning Xueyan. He said those words figuratively.
“Does this have anything to do with the Lord Protector’s Manor?” Ning Xueyan’s heart skipped a beat, and her long eyelashes fluttered like a feather fan. She asked in surprise, “Isn’t this something that no one should be aware of?” Could it be that the emperor was making trouble for the Lord Protector’s Manor?
Ao Chenyi looked at her and suddenly asked, with a faint smile on his face, “Yan’er, are you worried for the Lord Protector’s Manor?”
“I’m not worried.” Ning Xueyan looked at Ao Chenyi’s narrow eyes, and said this clearly. Lord Protector’s Manor had never given her the impression of being her family. Even in this so-called “disciplined” place, the blood of the weak flowed everywhere. The weak included herself, Xiang’er, Madam Ming, and other people.
The first thing she wanted to do after her rebirth was to destroy this place. This place was full of schemes and ruthlessness. There was a trace of sadness in her eyes for no reason.
“Everything will be fine. Ning Zu’an will be reprimanded at most,” Ao Chenyi said lazily.
“Why are they all looking for her? Was there something of interest there?” Ning Xueyan asked. Ao Chenyi raised his eyebrows. When he was about to say something, she suddenly stopped him. “Prince Yi, do you want to see the Third Prince and the Fourth Prince? They’re in our manor now.”
“No, they will be coming over.” Ao Chenyi said with an evil smile. He raised his eyebrows and looked at Ning Xueyan with interest. He did not ask her why she suddenly changed the topic, but his eyes were cold.
Ning Xueyan raised her head and looked at him with some hesitation. Then, she looked down because she saw that he was unhappy. However, she could not really ask about some things and did not dare to ask further. She bit her lips and did not know how to continue. It was not because she did not want to ask, but she did not know how to talk about her previous life.
Even in her previous life, she had her pride and also had reasons for not being to speak out.
She did not dare to and was not able to casually say anything about it. She did not know what to say. She did not dare to let others discover her biggest secret– her rebirth. She was afraid of being seen as a demon, and she did not want others to perceive her as a demon. She could investigate into the matter about Ning Ziying slowly, but she could not let others find out that she was Ning Ziying.
“Prince, do you want to go to the Cloud Reflection Courtyard to have a look?” She unexpectedly asked him this.
“No, I don’t want to!” Ao Chenyi’s lips curved coldly, and he refused her directly. A trace of gloom flashed across his beautiful eyes.
“Prince Yi, why don’t you want to have a look? The Third Prince and the others have already been there.” Ning Xueyan asked in puzzlement, with a trace of doubt in her shimmery eyes. Although she could not directly tell what it was, she knew that it should be a crucial matter. Otherwise, Ao Mingyu and Ao Mingwan would not have gone there.
“Only they will fight for that thing. Do you believe that it does not matter whether I get it or not?” Ao Chenyi suddenly smiled in disdain and said this proudly. His eyes were like the flowing clouds in the sky, which were hard to grasp for a moment, and could not be understood.
If anyone else had said it, Ning Xueyan would not have believed it. But when he said it, she believed it, because that was what a man like him was like. Ning Xueyan felt relieved for no reason, and unconsciously had a soft smile in her eyes.
“I believe you!” She answered, without any hesitation.
Looking at Ning Xueyan, Ao Chenyi became less cold. He picked up the cup at hand and took a sip gracefully. Then he turned his head and looked at her. Suddenly, he asked, “Do you want me to help you?”
“Thank you, Prince Yi. I can do it!” Ning Xueyan knew that there must be a reason behind his words, but she still shook her head. Whether it was about Madam Ling or the shop outside, she felt that she could handle it.
“Prince Yi, have you ever thought that the Lord Protector might not have the military medallion from the former dynasty?” Ning Xueyan suddenly remembered something and asked, after thinking for a while. This was the first agreement she made with Ao Chenyi. It seemed that she had not revealed anything until now. She only knew that Ning Qingshan shared the same interest in the military medallion.
