Both of Fei Cheng Lie’s eyes turned bloodshot as he yelled out.
“The flares? What happened? Father. Did something big happen?” Fei Yan’s expression changed after seeing the flares being released.
The flare signals. These were only used during the most urgent emergencies. Once they were used, the entire Hou Jin empire had to prepare for the emergency. What exactly had happened?
However, after the flares were used everything remained silent. There was no sound of fast-approaching footsteps. There weren’t any fast moving shadows. Nothing. It was completely silent.
Fei Cheng Lie’s eyes turned cold. What happened? Could it be that there’s no one in West Cliff?
No. That’s not possible. He had only sent the sixth and seventh hall to protect the emperor. There was still the people from the fifth hall who are in charge of the imperial palace’s safety. Also, the other four halls should be present as well. How come there wasn’t a single soul in sight?
It was silent. The entire place was silent.
Feeling uneasy, Fei Yan and Fei Cheng Lie both rushed out of their quarter.
There was nobody. No one on the roads either. Where did everyone from West Cliff go?
They quickly searched the place and entered the fourth hall. There was only one other person in there. The fourth hall’s hall master. He was struggling on the floor, trying to crawl his way out of the hall to seek help. His face was deathly pale.
He was poisoned. The number one poison expert in West Cliff was actually poisoned!
“Master Fei…… The water….. there’s poison in the water…..” Seeing that Fei Cheng Lie had come, the fourth hall’s hall master used the remainder of his energy to relay the message. Immediately afterwards, he dropped dead.
The water was poisoned? Could it be that all of the water in West Cliff was poisoned?
He felt the shivers once again. The only one who can enter West Cliff without anyone noticing was Xuan Yuan Che. He was the only one….. He….. Does he want to destroy the entire West Cliff?
Fei Cheng Lie’s hands turned into a fist. While thinking about what to do, he could hear the sound of firecrackers.
Firecrackers….. Murong Liu Yue was marrying the seventeenth princess. The emperor and the crowned prince are both in attendance!
Not good. The emperor was in danger!
Fei Cheng Lie immediately grabbed Fei Yan and sped towards the direction of Liu Yue’s general Mansion. They couldn’t let them harm the emperor, or else Hou Jin is finished.
