Chapter 474
Chapter 474: The blade falls
Translator: Sparrow Translations Editor: Sparrow Translations

Fang Zhengzhi heard what Crown Prince Lin Tianrong said .
 
Rank three official? Acting Minister of Rites? Isn't that a little underwhelming? I thought I was going to be a rank two official?

Perhaps Ping Yang's words were exaggerated .
  
Would I still be given land?
 
Fang Zhengzhi really wanted to ask someone to give him an antidote! He didn't want to stay silent on this matter .
  
However . . .
 
No one could hear him .
 
Shan Ling would never offer up the antidote because that would implicate him .
 
He would never admit to his actions!
  
Even though he had come clean back in Princess Shan Yu's room, he would never confess to them here .
 
Most importantly, he did not want to let Fang Zhengzhi speak .
 
When the settlement chiefs and generals heard Lin Tianrong, they finally understood how th.o.r.n.y this issue promised to be .
 
Fang Zhengzhi's actions were known to everyone .
 
If they executed Fang Zhengzhi now, they would be hard-pressed to explain it to the Great Xia and their citizens .
 
Furthermore, Fang Zhengzhi had just been promoted .
 
This was a man who was highly valued by the Emperor . They could not sentence him to death so easily .
 
As such . . .
 
The only way was to let the Emperor handle it .
 
But how would the Emperor handle it?
 
The King of the Southern Region frowned . He had to balance his options . Ordinarily, Fang Zhengzhi would not be able to escape the death sentence .
  
However, to be honest, he didn't want to kill Fang Zhengzhi . . .
 
After all, Fang Zhengzhi was a key factor in their victory . If he killed him just to preserve the royal family's reputation
 
It would be slightly too vicious .
  
But if he didn't kill Fang Zhengzhi . . .
  
How could the Shan Family hold their head up high?
 
If Fang Zhengzhi was a dead man walking, then it wouldn't matter . But what if he wasn't? How was Princess Shan Yu going to find a mate in the future?
 
Anyone who married her would have to live with this fact .

As Fang Zhengzhi progressed up the ranks in the Great Xia, this would only become more and more embarra.s.sing .
  
To kill or not to kill?
  
The King of the Southern Region frowned .

"Father!" Princess Shan Yu's voice interrupted his train of thought .
 
"Shan Yu . . . speak your mind . " The King shuddered as he looked at Princess Shan Yu, his eyes filled with guilt .
  
As a father . . .

As a King, he could not possibly let his daughter be humiliated in this manner and do nothing about it .

"Sister, just let father . . . " Shan Ling wanted to interrupt .
 
"Father, according to Southern Region traditions, you held this banquet to find me a partner . Fang Zhengzhi had eaten the meat I prepared . Normally, that would mean that I can now make a choice, right?" Princess Shan Yu interrupted .
 
"Erm . . . " The King's expression changed .
 
He could tell where Princess Shan Yu was going with this . To be completely honest, having Fang Zhengzhi marry Shan Yu . . .
 
Was the best solution to all these . . .
 
But . . .
 
When he recalled that Fang Zhengzhi could die at any moment, he became extremely conflicted . He didn't want his daughter to be a widow .
 
The King of the Southern Region hesitated .

Shan Ling noticed the hesitation .
 
"Father, since this issue concerns a rank three official of the Great Xia, the Great Xia court would have jurisdiction . Why don't we have the Crown Prince bring Fang Zhengzhi back and have the Emperor himself decide!" Shan Ling suggested .
 
"Mm, what you say is reasonable, but . . . " The King of the Southern Region nodded . He still did not like this idea . He valued peace above all else .

As such . . .
  
Even if Fang Zhengzhi was about to die, he could still accept Princess Shan Yu's suggestion . Furthermore, Fang Zhengzhi's lifespan was still up in the air .
  
Furthermore, Fang Zhengzhi could very well give him a grandchild before he pa.s.sed on . That would not be a bad thing .
 
"Father, rest a.s.sured . I will accompany the Crown Prince to the Great Xia and I will ensure that your opinions are heard!" Shan Ling added .
  
"You want to go to Yan Capital?" The King of the Southern Region was tempted .
 
Shan Ling, the Crown Prince of the Southern Region, knew his influence and position well . The King also knew what Shan Ling meant .
 
Since Fang Zhengzhi was a key factor in this victory . . .
 
Without this incident, he would be fast-tracked through the courts of the Great Xia .

If he were to be forced to stay in the Southern Region, his heart may not be in the right place .

However, if the Great Xia had given him a grave punishment . . .

Then . . .
  
They could come in and provide a better offer . They could offer Fang Zhengzhi Shan Yu's hand in marriage . Fang Zhengzhi would be grateful for such an offer .

"Yes, this concerns the reputation of the Shan Family . Now that we are in the midst of rebuilding after the war, you will be busy with domestic affairs . I think it is appropriate that I tag along . " Shan Ling added .
 
Princess Shan Yu pursed her lips . She wanted to speak, but she saw her father shake her head at her .
  
"Okay then, it is great that you are willing to go to the Great Xia for this . Crown Prince, what do you think?" The King of the Southern Region nodded . He didn't know what Shan Yu was thinking, but he knew that he couldn't send her .
 
Shan Ling was his best option .
 
"No problem at all!" Crown Prince Lin Tianrong nodded .

"Since that is the case, I will have to trouble you to take care of my son!" The King of the Southern Region replied .
 
"You are too kind . The Crown Prince's abilities are clear for all to see . He would be the one taking care of me . " Crown Prince Lin Tianrong smiled .
  
The atmosphere in the throne room relaxed .
 
Yet, it was also slightly awkward .
 
The settlement chiefs and generals didn't speak . After the battle they had just been through, they were not willing to start another one anytime soon .

The candidates of the Great Xia wanted to say something as well . However, when they felt the atmosphere in the room, they swallowed the words at the tip of their tongue .

However . . .
  
When they looked at the 'comatose' Fang Zhengzhi, their eyes were filled with envy and jealousy .
 
How could he possibly be sleeping so soundly after climbing into Princess Shan Yu's bed?!

   . . .
 
Before dawn . . .

The convoy heading to the Great Xia set out . After something like that happened, there was no point in carrying on the celebrations .
 
The candidates of the Great Xia were in the vanguard . They rode their horses and cleared a path with their Southern Region soldier guides .
  
Crown Princes Lin Tianrong and Shan Ling were in the back .
  
As Crown Princes of their respective regions, they had a squad of guards protecting them . The squad was eight strong .
 
These were not soldiers, they were hangers-on .
 
Hangers-on .
 
This was a common thing amongst the n.o.ble households of the Great Xia . Every family would have a few hangers-on .
  
Each of these people had special abilities . They had no official position, but they could do many things for the family .
  
The courts had rules governing the hangers-on .
 
Different families could have different numbers of hangers-on . However, even the most influential families did not have many hangers-on .
  
Furthermore, each one had to be registered with the courts .
 
The reason . . .
 
Was security . . .
 
The eight of them were in their fifties . These were the guards for the two Crown Princes . Furthermore, Shan Ling was already in the advanced Rebirth State .
 
Su Qing followed behind Crown Prince Lin Tianrong .
 
So long as they did not go up against the lord of the beasts, there should be nothing that could stand in their way .
  
As such . . .
 
Bringing along a 'comatose' Fang Zhengzhi was no problem at all .
 
Crown Prince Lin Tianrong closed his eyes throughout the entire journey, completely relaxed .
 
Shan Ling seemed to be thinking about something .
 
They traveled for hours before stopping for lunch . By sunset, they were already some distance from the Sagely Mountain City .
 
The setting sun was a beautiful sight to behold .
  
It went through the flaps of the carriage and stained Fang Zhengzhi's face red .
 
At that moment, the convoy stopped . Shan Ling reined in his horse and Lin Tianrong followed suit .

"Your Highness, do you still remember our deal?" Shan Ling asked .
 
"Of course I do . " Lin Tianrong nodded as he looked at the figure inside the carriage .

"Okay then, we will hold to our agreement and maintain peace for 10 years . However, I have one condition!" Shan Ling continued .
  
"How do you want to deal with Fang Zhengzhi?" Lin Tianrong smirked .
 
"Kill him . I will not let my sister marry someone like that!" Shan Ling's voice was icy .
  
"If so . . . please go ahead . " Crown Prince Lin Tianrong smiled . He had expected this to happen .
 
"If I kill Fang Zhengzhi, how will you report to the Emperor?"

"Fang Zhengzhi was unwilling to return to the capital because he knew he couldn't escape the death sentence . He kidnapped you so I had no choice but to agree to let him stay . Then, he took the chance to escape . However, because his cultivation was ruined, he was killed by beasts . By the time I got there, it was too late . . . what do you think?" Lin Tianrong replied .
  
"That's great!" Shan Ling nodded .
 
"If that is so, then it should occur in the bushes, not on the road, am I right?" Lin Tianrong looked at the forests by the side of the road .
  
"That's right!" Shan Ling nodded .
 
"Please . " Lin Tianrong pointed to the forest .

"Okay, let me clear a path for you . " Shan Ling walked into the forest .
 
Lin Tianrong and his eight hangers-on followed behind . Su Qing led the carriage carrying Fang Zhengzhi into the forest as well .
  
The sun was setting .
 
Darkness fell . . .
  
The candidates were already some distance away . Seeing that night was approaching, they stopped and set up a camp, waiting for Lin Tianrong to join them .
 
Safety . . .
  
Was already taken care of .

What they didn't know was that there were more than 10 figures and a carriage in the woods around them .

The flaps were opened .

Fang Zhengzhi could be seen . . .
 
He was dressed, his expression calm . However, his body was still paralyzed .

"What a great move . " Lin Tianrong commended .

"You too!" Shan Ling nodded .
 
"Are you not going to let him die a more honorable death?" Lin Tianrong smiled as he looked at the comatose Fang Zhengzhi .
 
"I never drag my feet when I work . Furthermore, the medicine that I gave him allows him to remain conscious despite his paralysis . He heard everything from the beginning . " Shan Ling shook his head .
 
"I see . " Lin Tianrong stiffened .

Shan Ling didn't say anything else .
 
He walked forward and stepped onto the carriage . He unsheathed his sword .
 
"Fang Zhengzhi, you can only blame yourself for being too greedy . When you asked for 10 gold mines, you should have seen this coming!" Shan Ling pursed his lips .

His voice was not loud and his arms were stable . His blade radiated an icy aura as he glared at Fang Zhengzhi like a ravenous predator .
  
He raised his sword . . .

Blood . . .

Blood splattered all over the carriage in that instant . . .
