But Xiao Jiuyuan hadn't found the real murderer yet. This was because he did not care about his previous fiancees. The reason he agreed to the emperor's arrangement was to appease his mother.
When his first and the second fiancees died, he thought it was just an accident; he didn't care much.
When the third and the fourth fiancees died, he was at the border, fighting against the North Di armies, so he wasn't sure what had happened.
When he wanted to check the matter after returning, all traces were erased and he could not do anything.
By then, it had been rumored that he was the embodiment of the Tiansha's lone star; forever bound to be alone.
Xiao Jiuyuan didn't expect someone to attack him like this. If he found out who did it, he would tear the person into eight pieces and let the world see. It would happen if anyone dared to plot against him.
Xiao Jiuyuan was thinking about it, and Yun Qianyu spoke weakly,
"Right now, your highness needs a fiancee, a chess piece. I think the person behind all this will surely make a move again. If the mastermind did nothing and I lived well, then the previous will be forgotten. People will just say that your highness was not at all the embodiment of the Tiansha's lone star; that the women were just unlucky."
"I'd like to be that chess piece and help your highness lure out the mastermind."
As soon as she said that, Xiao Jiuyuan and Xiao Yechen both stared at her.
While Xiao Jiuyuan's expression remained unchanged, there was a subtle change in his pupils, and the corners of his lips started to lift.
Xiao Yechen looked at Yun Qianyu in surprise. How could anyone be willing to be a chess piece? Moreover, a chess piece that was meant to be killed.
Xiao Yechen was speechless, while Xiao Jiuyuan said coldly,
"Are you sure you want to be my chess piece or do you just want the title of Li princess consort to protect yourself? I can choose whoever I want to be my chess pieces, but you only have one life.
When Xiao Jiuyuan looked at Yun Qianyu, he looked slightly interested. This woman was not like the other flowery girls he knew. She had some brains.
It was a pity that Xiao Jiuyuan would never let someone use him. She was not qualified to be his chess piece.
After Xiao Jiuyuan said that, he moved to leave. Although she was a little smarter than the other women, that was all. Why did her cleverness matter to him? Even her life did not matter to him.
Xiao Jiuyuan said coldly "You are a little clever. This time, I will spare your life, but you are not qualified to be my chess piece. I can't stand such an ugly chess piece."
Xiao Jiuyuan turned around and walked out. Bai Yao and Hei Yao went along too. Hei Yao, of course, did not forget to glare at Yun Qianyu before he left.
Xiao Yechen finally understood; the reason that Yun Qianyu volunteered to be Xiao Jiuyuan's chess piece, was so that she could protect herself. Considering her current situation, she really did need a title to protect herself.
Xiao Yechen looked at Yun Qianyu, then got up and went with Xiao Jiuyuan. He didn't forget to help Yun Qianyu and say a few words,
"My ninth imperial uncle, don't you think Miss Yun is too pitiful. Couldn't you lend the title of Li princess consort to her for now?"
Xiao Jiuyuan looked at Xiao Yechen coldly, and he dared not speak more. He sighed,
