Venomous Empress Reborn - Chapter 604
604 You Have to Stay Away From Prince Rui (3)
Huangfu Hao turned around to look at him. Fu Xiuyi smiled and left with a nod. Huangfu Hao stood rooted to the ground for a while before throwing a glance at Xie Ding, who was surrounded by everyone. He sneered and strode away.
Because the princess of the State of Qin was the victim, the people of the Judicial office did not dare to take it lightly. However, for some reason, this time, they couldn’t find any clues that pointed otherwise. After checking all kinds of scenes, what they concluded was that Princess Ming An actually had an affair with the Xie brothers. However, they naturally could not show this result to Emperor Wen Hui. Otherwise, not to mention Emperor Wen Hui, the crown prince of the State of Qin would be the first to flare up.
The case seemed to have fallen into a deadlock.
In the Shen family’s mansion, Shen Qiu entered Shen Miao’s study and sat down opposite her.
Shen Miao glanced at Shen Qiu. Seeing that he wanted to say something but hesitated, she asked, “Brother, do you have anything to say to me?”
“Sister.” Shen Qiu hesitated for a moment, as if it was extremely difficult for him to speak. Shen Miao felt a little strange and asked him, “Brother, if you have anything to say, just say it.”
Shen Qiu thought for a long time before asking, “Sister, were you the one who did it?”
Shen Miao was slightly stunned. She did not expect Shen Qiu to suspect her. However, she quickly smiled and said, “Brother, why do you say that? Do you think me alone can deal with Princess Ming An and the Xie brothers? You think too highly of me.”
Shen Qiu looked at Shen Miao with a complicated gaze. A moment later, he sighed and said, “Sister, in the past, Father, Mother, and I couldn’t protect you. All these years, we’ve let you live with those villains in the Shen mansion. I didn’t understand what you experienced at first, but later, I understood. I know you know how to protect yourself and that you have some tricks up your sleeve, but… we’re your family.” He said seriously, “There are some things that you don’t have to do on your own. Father, Mother, and I will do our best to protect you.”
Shen Miao lowered her eyes and put away the thousands of emotions in her heart. She smiled and said, “Brother, you’re right. We’re family, but I didn’t do anything to Princess Ming An. I don’t have the ability or the guts to do so. Besides,” she asked, “what does the Xie brothers have to do with me?”
Shen Qiu sighed and said, “You’re still unwilling to tell me the truth.”
Shen Miao did not say anything. In fact, Shen Miao had been revealing her information to Shen Qiu bit by bit. One day, if she really reached a point where she had to resort to her family, at least Shen Qiu would be able to understand why she did these things sooner. However, not everything in this world could be done overnight. She could not bring everything in the open now.
“Forget it. I just want to tell you that since I can guess that you’re related to this matter, Father and Mother might be able to guess it too.” Shen Qiu stared at Shen Miao with a serious expression. “You have to know that Princess Ming An doesn’t have any grudges with anyone in Ming Qi other than you. If we can figure this out, the crown prince of the State of Qin also can. No matter if you’re really related to this matter or not, you are the first suspect. Sister, you’re in a very dangerous situation now.”
Shen Miao said, “But I have nothing to do with this matter. Even if they investigate, they won’t be able to find out anything, right?” In fact, how could Shen Miao not have thought of what Shen Qiu said? Although Xie Jingxing could wipe out all the evidence, he couldn’t stop Huangfu Hao from taking revenge.
