Exodus Tales Exodus Tales
As soon as Yun Qianyu said that, several people in the back could not help but gasp,
Eternal Peace Marquis Yun Lei was shocked and angered. He stared at Yun Qianyu and thought quickly. If Yun Qianyu became Xiao Jiuyuan's consort, he would not be able to do anything to her.
Although previously, he promised not to harm Yun Qianyu, he would eventually get his way. When the storm had passed, he would still deal with the vile girl.
But if she became Xiao Jiuyuan's consort, he would be powerless.
As this thought passed his mind, Yun Lei felt as if he had been crushed by a heavy stone. He stopped Yun Qianyu with a deep voice, "You can't accept this imperial edict."
Xiao Tianyi, Xuan Prince, also opened his mouth, "Yun Qianyu, if you accept this edict, my ninth imperial uncle would be furious; you will suffer greatly."
When Xiao Tianyi saw that Yun Qianyu received the imperial edict, he became annoyed.
Although he disliked her, he always knew that Yun Qianyu would be his consort.
Even if he didn't particularly want to, he always knew that she would be his in the end.
He didn't think that she would not only dump him but also calmly receive someone else for marriage.
Even though Xiao Tianyi looked at Yun Qianyu with a look of concern, Yun Qianyu did not care about what Xiao Tianyi thought.
In fact, she was only trying to survive. Originally, she hoped to use Xiao Tianyi's words to suppress Yun Lei, so that he would not harm her.
But how long could Xiao Tianyi's words keep Yun Lei at bay?
After this whole thing was over, Yun Lei would surely deal with her.
But, if she accepted the imperial edict and became Xiao Jiuyuan's consort, Yun Lei would not have the guts to do anything to her.
Of course, Yun Qianyu also knew that Xiao Jiuyuan was not a good person to deal with. That person was certainly more fierce than Yun Lei and Xiao Tianyi.
Thus If she accepted this imperial edict, she would be dancing with a tiger.
But what then? I would rather die standing up than live humbly.
Yun Qianyu had always been like this. She couldn't control her anger. If she was willing to control herself, she would have obediently listened to Yun Lei today; that would temporarily allow her to survive and wait for a better time to deal with Yun Lei. But, she just couldn't swallow her anger, and she dealt with them the best way she knew how.
Yun Qianyu calmly reached out to receive the imperial edict from eunuch Zhao.
Xiao Tianyi and Yun Lei both wanted to say something, but Yun Qianyu did not give them a chance to talk. She just said lightly, "The imperial edict has been given. Yet, Xuan Prince and Father are blocking me from receiving the edict. Will Father or Xuan Prince be responsible if the emperor is angered."
Yun Qianyu looked at them coldly, not waiting for the two to speak, and continued, "Or will you two want to force me to be disobedient toward the imperial edict and kill me."
Xiao Tianyi and Yun Lei both became shocked, and they both said, "No."
Yun Qianyu then smiled and said, "That is good."
She struggled to get up, as both her legs and feet were weak. Hua Mei, on her side, hurriedly picked her up and cried softly, "Are you alright, young miss?"
Yun Qianyu looked pale, but her hands tightly grasped the edict. This was her life-saving charm and her guarantee. She looked up hard and saw Xiao Tianyi looking at her with a complicated expression.
Yun Qianyu then sneered at Xiao Tianyi, "Xuan Prince, you should call me your ninth imperial aunt now."
