Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Meng Liang stood opposite them. Compared to a few days ago, he looked more haggard now. However, his eyes were sharper. It looked like a pair of treasured swords.
“Is he affected with the plague?” Ming Shu asked Junjue as she touched her chin.
Junjue hid his injured arm behind his back. He nodded his head as though nothing had happened. “Yes.”
Ming Shu clicked her tongue. “You said that the plague had something to do with him. How come he is affected too?” Not professional enough!
Junjue kept quiet for a moment. “I don’t know.”
Even if I do, I will not tell you.
Ming Shu asked again, “Are you okay?”
The hand behind Junjue’s back was still hurting. He squeezed his hand. “I am okay.”
She didn’t seem to have seen it just now…
Ming Shu sized him up curiously. Junjue’s face was calm and he looked right into Ming Shu’s eyes as if he was really alright.
Meng Liang’s frowned when he saw the two of them chitchatting. He looked at Junjue first before turning his attention to Ming Shu.
Ming Shu thought that he wanted to say something but he suddenly just grabbed his weapon and rushed over.
Hey! This little demon is different from those other flirtatious b.i.t.c.hes outside. He is meant to do big things.
However, before he could do that, give me my Hatred Points first.
Ming Shu pulled Junjue backed and received his attack.
“Your Majesty, do you think that he really likes you?” Meng Liang spoke quickly as he blocked Ming Shu’s attack.
“Is that important?” Meng Liang lifted the corners of her lips and smiles. She pushed Meng Liang away with the force from her palm.
Meng Liang took two steps back from the attack. He gritted his teeth and moved forward again.
“He has his motive for approaching you. You…”
His sentence was interrupted by Ming Shu’s attack. Meng Liang was on the winning end at the start but as the time goes by, he started to lose out. His attacks were almost always subdued by Ming Shu.
Meng Liang was slammed onto the ground by Ming Shu. His mind was in a whirl and the scenery around him seemed to shatter.
Her voice sounded beside his ear. “No matter what his intention is, I want…”
Meng Liang felt her voice going further and further away. The words at the end were faint and he couldn’t hear what she was saying.
The surrounding started turning dark. It sank into a dead silence.
After some time, Meng Liang felt cold. His head was still in pain and he only managed to open his eyes after a while.
“You are awake.”
Meng Liang got a shock. He looked towards the source of the voice.
A man dress in exquisite concubine clothes was sitting not far away. The eerie and dark prison seemed to turn bright and colorful due to his presence.
Junjue rested his chin on his right hand. He held the armrest of the chair with his left hand and slowly knocked it. The steady sound rang through the entire cell.
There was only him and Junjue in the cell.
Meng Liang sat up and was on his guard as he looked at Junjue.
Junjue stopped knocking the chair. “Is the conquest department using such methods now?”
Meng Liang suddenly smiled. “Lord Nine, I have long heard about you.”
Junjue frowned. “You know who I am?”
Normally, only one task holder would appear in the world.
However, even though he was here, another task holder appeared. This was not normal.
Even if it was a special circ.u.mstance and there were two task holder, they would not know each other’s true ident.i.ty if they didn’t say out their own name or show any symbolic items.
How did he know me then?
What the f**k which idiot is scheming against me again!

Meng Liang didn’t reply to him. He silently agreed to what he said.
The antidote was useless to him. However, it would not spread anymore. That is a plus point.
I wonder how long I can last.
“Cough cough cough…”
“Your Highness, are you okay?” Lianxin put down the plate and ran over. “Did you catch flu? Should I get the royal physician to come and take a look at you?”
Junjue shook his head. “I am fine. My throat doesn’t feel good. It will be fine after I drink some water.”
Lianxin persuaded him, “Your Highness, it is better to invite the royal physician. If Her Majesty…” knows that I didn’t call the royal physician when you are feeling unwell, she will hit me.
Junjue continued shaking his head. “Has Her Majesty finished her work?”
“Nope. There have been many things recently. If you want to see Her Majesty, you can go over anytime.” Lianxin asked cautiously, “Do you want to go over?”
“No need for that.” Junjue shook his head. “I will rest for a while. You can take your leave first.”
“Are you really not going to call the royal physician?” Lianxin didn’t give up.
Junjue waved his hand and signaled for Lianxin to leave.
Lianxin’s frown got deeper. She stood outside the door in deep thought and finally decided to find Ming Shu after a while.
There were many things to settle regarding the rebel and the plague. Although things seemed to have gotten better due to the rain and the plague had stopped spreading, what would happen if it stopped raining?
That was why Ming Shu was being held on by the bunch of officials.
When Lianxin arrived, Ming Shu had made the bunch of officials so angry they were stomping their feet.
When she heard that Junjue was unwell, she left the officials alone and rushed to Xianyu Palace.
Ming Shu ran in hurriedly. Junjue was preparing to go out and b.u.mped right into Ming Shu.
“Where are you going?”
Junjue got anxious for a second. He lowered his eyes and replied calmly, “The study…”
Ming Shu pushed him back. “Where do you feel unwell?”
“Nothing. Lianxin is making too much of a commotion.” He knew that Lianxin told Her Majesty what happened. Junjue tried to change the topic. “Aren’t you discussing important stuff?”
