Chapter 57: Chapter 57 Xuan King Paying Up
Before Xiao Tianyi could say anything, Xiao Yechen, who had been watching in the main hall, said,
"Tianyi, if you don't have enough money, I can help you pay some."
Xiao Yechen intervened and said something that was sensitive right now. What Xiao Tianyi wanted to say was forced back into his throat.
"It's not easy for you either. You still need to support the Xuan King's residence. It's also quite normal to have monetary problems. If you have any difficulties, just tell me and I will help you."
Xiao Tianyi's face was gloomy. He didn't believe Xiao Yechen to be so kind-hearted. Xiao Yechen was clearly taking advantage of the situation to push him into the pit.
If he did not give Yun Qianyu what she wanted, he believed that soon all people in the capital would know that his residence was out of money; that the Xuan King was broke.
If that news broke out, what would those ministers who supported him in courtside do?
This would greatly influence his chances of inheriting the throne.
Previously what he did on the day of his marriage was seen as something disgraceful by the ministers in the court. If it came out that he had become poor, then many ministers would surely side with some other family.
Xiao Tianyi thought about it for a while, then swallowed the anger he had. He looked up at Xiao Yechen and gave him a cold look.
Xiao Yechen gave him a faint sneer and thought,
Xiao Tianyi no longer looked at Xiao Yechen but looked at Yun Qianyu. Although Yun Qianyu's request was exuberant, Xiao Tianyi thought that this was something he had to do.
Xiao Tianyi calmed his mind, looked at Yun Qianyu with a warm face, and said, "Yu'er, what happened yesterday this king's fault. I should compensate you. Since you have put forward such requests, I will do it."
As soon as Xiao Tianyi said that, in the main hall, Liu Shi could not help crying out, "Your highness, this is not right."
Xiao Tianyi turned around and looked at Liu Shi. He was in a bad mood again:
Yun Lei knew Xiao Tianyi's dilemma. He looked at Yun Qianyu and said seriously, "Yu'er, it's good that his highness has such a kind heart, but it's not good for your reputation when your request is like this."
Yun Qianyu did not care at all and said, "it doesn't matter, I don't care about my reputation. My reputation is already not good, what's the difference if it got worse?"
Yun Lei's mouth twitched and wanted to rebuke her.
However, Xiao Tianyi became impatient. The more they talked, the worse his mood became.
Xiao Tianyi then said in a deep voice, "That settles it. I'll ask my men to bring the things over."
Yun Qianyu was finally happy, she looked at him and said, "Thank you, your highness."
Xiao Yechen also chipped in, "Xuan King has always been so domineering. You are really someone I admire; I'll always be proud of you."
After Xiao Tianyi heard all these, he did not want to stay any longer. He stood up, looked at Xiao Jiuyuan, and said, "My ninth imperial uncle, this king will be going as there are still some matters to deal with."
Xiao Jiuyuan waved lazily, "go on."
Xiao Tianyi clenched his teeth. In fact, as long as Xiao Jiuyuan said something today, he wouldn't have needed to pay such a heavy price. Unfortunately, Xiao Jiuyuan did not pay attention to it at all, which led to him being in such a situation.
He was angry at this fact.
Xiao Tianyi led his people and went out.
