Today, Empress Dowager Nian held a family banquet in her Feng Pavilion. The guests at the banquet were all royal relatives. However, at noon, Yin Changan, Taiwei Nian and King Guang showed up.

Gu Qingtang had already expected such a result.

The Queen Mother Nian looked at the delicacies on the table with a cold face. She suddenly raised her glass and said, “The Ai family is old and we can’t invite anyone. Ying’er, Ning’er, Qingtang, come here. Let’s drink with Ai’s family!”

Yin Ying and Yin Ning lowered their heads, holding cups, and glanced at Gu Qingtang secretly.

Gu Qingtang smiled bitterly and shook his head. Is this because he wanted her to smooth things over?

“Queen Mother, Qingtang respects you!” Gu Qingtang raised his glass to the Queen Mother Nian, but he didn’t intend to say any compliments, so he raised his head and drank the wine in one gulp.

The Empress Dowager Nian felt a little strange. Normally, Gu Qingtang was full of nice things to say, but today for some reason, he didn’t want to say more. Thinking of the purpose of today’s banquet, I felt a little more irritated. Maybe Yin Changan knew that this banquet was not a good one, so he deliberately didn’t come. If Yin Changan didn’t act, his brother Nian Taiwei wouldn’t be able to take action first. In this situation It will only get stiffer and stiffer.

“Qingtang, the Ai family wants to ask you, does the Ai family’s younger brother treat you like a loving father?”

Gu Qingtang nodded solemnly, “Of course.”

“Then since today is a family banquet, how can your adoptive father be missing?” Empress Dowager Nian hinted, “The Ai family has not seen His Majesty for several days. Why don’t you go and invite Your Majesty first? The Ai family will send someone. Go and urge your brother, you two, go and urge King Guang.” Empress Dowager Nian took the initiative, and almost everyone in the palace was sent on errands.

Can you still say no?

Gu Qingtang stood up and bowed to the Queen Mother Nian, “Yes.”

Yin Ying and Yin Ning had no choice but to retreat, but not long after they walked out of the hall, they were stopped by Gu Qingtang.

“It’s very hot at noon, so you’d better leave the errands to me.” Gu Qingtang bowed and said, “A-Ning, take the imperial sister to Tinglan Palace for a while.”

“You are sensible!” Yin Ning nodded and chuckled, holding Yin Ying’s hand, “Sister Huang, let’s take a nap and let the consort go run errands.” After a brief pause, he couldn’t help but explain, “The sun is very strong, you should walk slower to avoid getting burned.”

“Yes.” Gu Qingtang smiled lightly, “I send Aning and Sister Huang off first.”

Yin Ning smiled knowingly, and gradually walked away with Yin Ying in her arms.

Gu Qingtang watched the two of them disappear at the end of the palace corridor, the smile on her face gradually dissipated. She straightened her official uniform and walked straight to the Queen Mother’s Feng Pavilion.

“Huh? Qingtang, why did you come back so soon?” Queen Mother Nian looked up and down at Gu Qingtang in surprise.

Gu Qingtang bowed to the Queen Mother Nian seriously and said: “Qingtang left and came back, so naturally he has something important to report.”

“What’s the matter?” Queen Mother Nian sat upright and glanced left and right at the maid, but she didn’t mean to retreat.

At this point, it doesn’t make any sense to quit or not to quit.

Gu Qingtang clasped his fists and bowed to the Queen Mother Nian again, “Before Qingtang reports, please see someone first.”


“The late Cavalry General Qin Zhongyu.”

“He…is still alive?!”



A moment later, Qin Zhongyu was led into Feng Pavilion by the young eunuch. He removed the beard on his face and knelt down in front of Queen Mother Nian.

“The guilty minister Qin Zhongyu, pays homage to the Queen Mother!”

“Raise your head and let Aijia take a good look!” Empress Dowager Nian ordered coldly.

Qin Zhongyu took a breath and looked up at the Queen Mother Nian, “Yes!”

The Empress Dowager Nian saw Qin Zhongyu’s face clearly and exclaimed in shock: “How can you still be alive?! The late emperor clearly ordered the destruction of your whole family back then!”

Qin Zhongyu glanced at Gu Qingtang, then looked at the Empress Dowager Nian, and said: “If you want me to die, I have to die, but I can’t die without knowing it. If I hadn’t been reminded by my consort, I would never have imagined that I was stabbed to death.” The real reason for my family!” He said excitedly, his voice began to tremble, “Back then…that year…the night before His Royal Highness died suddenly, I saw His Majesty sneaking into the East Palace.”

“What did you say?!”

Back then, the Empress Dowager Nian had always suspected that her son’s sudden death was man-made, and she had always pointed the finger at the biggest beneficiary, the Second Prince, but she didn’t expect that it was the usually obedient Yin Chang’an!

Why did Yin Changan desperately persuade the late emperor to order the death of Qin Zhongyu’s family? That’s it, that’s it!

Gu Qingtang immediately cupped his fists and said: “Qingtang feels that the Queen Mother has hosted a family banquet. At this time, Your Majesty will not come to the banquet. Therefore, if the Queen Mother has other instructions, Qingtang is happy to oblige.”

“He was the one supported by the Ai family on the throne. Did he think that if he didn’t come to the banquet, the Ai family would not be able to do anything to him?!” Empress Dowager Nian roared angrily and glared at Gu Qingtang, “Qingtang , you don’t have to go anywhere, just take Qin Zhongyu and the Ai family to find that beast! The Ai family wants him to pay for the life of the Ai family’s son!”


As soon as the three people walked out of Feng Pavilion, a young **** ran over in a panic and knelt down in front of Queen Mother Nian with a plop, “It’s not good! It’s not good! Queen Mother, Taiwei Nian is in front of the palace gate.” Ambush!”

“What?!” Empress Dowager Nian’s face became even more ugly, “This guy is very ruthless and quick to attack! Someone came to pass on the Ai family’s decree and ordered the imperial guards to gather at the palace gate and quickly rescue the Ai family’s younger brother! ”

“Qingtang, follow the Ai family to the palace gate quickly!” Empress Dowager Nian was now anxious and angry. After saying this, she walked quickly towards the palace gate.

Gu Qingtang gave Qin Zhongyu a wink, telling him not to be anxious, deliberately slowed down half a step, and said hastily in a low voice, “In a moment, take advantage of the chaos, go wander around the south of the city, and I will send someone to see Mrs. Qin off. Meet you.”

“Then you…”

“My princess is still in the imperial city. Wherever she is, I should also be there.” Gu Qingtang looked firmly at the road ahead, thinking: “Aning, I will always protect you and do everything you can to protect me.” The big tree of your life.”

The peace of Tinglan Palace was finally broken due to the sound of fighting in front of the palace gate.

“What happened?!” Yin Ning looked at Xiao Xi who was waiting outside the palace door, “Xiao Xi, go and have a look!”

Xiao Xi nodded heavily, ran a few steps with her skirt up, and bumped into the panicked little **** who came to report.

“Princess…Princess! It’s not good! It’s not good! Taiwei Nian was ambushed in front of the palace gate!”


Xiao Xi’s face changed drastically, she hurriedly picked up her skirt and ran back, saying urgently: “Princess, something big happened in the palace! Taiwei Nian was ambushed in front of the palace gate!”

“Palace gate?! Qingtang has just left the palace, could it be that…” Yin Ning’s first thought was of his consort, “Xiao Xi, hurry up, follow me to the palace gate to have a look, I’m worried about my consort! ”

Yin Ying quickly stopped her, “An Ning, there must be chaos in front of the palace gate. If we go there like this, it will only add to the chaos.”

“Sister Huang, you stay here. Xiao Xi and I will find two palace guards to **** us there. We will watch from a distance. Nothing will happen!” Yin Ning shook his head, “Qingtang is my consort. You have to make sure she’s okay!”


“Xiao Xi, let’s go!”


“Imperial sister!” Yin Ying took a step after him and looked around at the serving eunuchs. “Follow me, all of you, and be careful to protect An Ning!” After saying that, he followed Yin Ning closely. Walk in front of the palace gate.


Yin Ning’s heart felt slightly cold. She subconsciously pinched the dagger hidden in her sleeve and thought to herself: “Qingtang, did you know that there was a change in the palace today, so you gave it to me specially? Dagger for self-defense?”

Thinking of this, Yin Ning’s heart suddenly tightened.

If Gu Qingtang knew that there was a change in the palace today, then Gu Qingtang would definitely be involved. Palace changes have always been accompanied by blood since ancient times. Yin Ning asked for nothing at this moment, only that her consort was safe and sound.

The scorching sun shines brightly on the closed palace door, and blood is spread all over the ground. Among the fighting figures, blood is splashed, the cold light of the gun blade is flashing, and the palace guards and the Taiwei Mansion are howling. The general’s screams were accompanied by a strong smell of blood.

Nian Taiwei sat on horseback and watched coldly as the vanguard general led his elite generals to fight with a thousand palace guards. He knew that those palace guards were no match for the generals of Taiwei’s house. He wanted to wait for this ridiculous ambush to slowly end.

Raising tigers is a danger!

Nian Taiwei’s hand clenching the reins made a rattling sound. When he thought of his beloved son’s inexplicable death in the capital, he hated himself for being too kind to the current puppet emperor!

In this palace, Yin Changan must pay a heavy price no matter what!


Suddenly, another thousand-man army emerged from the palace. Judging from the color of their armor, they were the personal guards of Prince Guang’s Palace.

Nian Taiwei smiled and said: “Even the King of Light is here, these palace guards can finally go to see the King of Hell earlier! Wait! Why would they…”

The targets of the killing of those personal guards were not the palace guards, but the generals of the Taiwei Mansion!

Defection in battle!

What on earth is going on? !

“Protect Taiwei!” Several shield guards held Taiwei Nian behind them with their shields. “There are archers ambushed on top of the city!”

Nian Taiwei turned over and dismounted, and then he discovered that there were several rows of archers standing on the top of the city, all of them were the personal guards of Prince Guang!

“My foster father is in danger!” Gu Qingtang saw the archers on the top of the city from a distance. After saying this, the Queen Mother Nian became even more nervous.

“Where is the commander of the Royal Forest Army?!” Empress Dowager Nian shouted tremblingly.

The commander of the Royal Forest Army quickly pressed his sword and responded, “Only by the Queen Mother’s orders!”

“You lead the three thousand Yulin Army Iron Guards to quickly rescue Lord Taiwei!” After the Empress Dowager Nian ordered in a hurry, she added, “No one who dares to be an enemy of my Nian family will be spared!”


Gu Qingtang secretly took a breath. He had always heard about the thrilling changes in the ancient palace. Today, he experienced it personally. As expected, there were corpses everywhere.

“Queen Mother, it seems that Your Majesty is not here…” Gu Qingtang calmed himself down and whispered a reminder.

The Empress Dowager Nian glanced at the palace door hastily, and sure enough she could not see Yin Changan. She gritted her teeth and thought carefully, then suddenly turned and looked at the main hall, “If the Ai family guessed correctly, he must be there!”

“Queen Mother, be careful of fraud!” Gu Qingtang warned.

The Empress Dowager Nian took a deep look at Gu Qingtang and said, “Brother, my love for you is not in vain. You are indeed a good child. I will remember you for your contribution to the Ai family!”

Gu Qingtang bowed hurriedly, “These are what Qingtang should do.”

“Qingtang, go up with the Ai family!” Queen Mother Nian’s eyes were full of bloodshot eyes. She straightened her clothes, and suddenly she felt like a phoenix in the world.


“The other royal guards surrounded the main hall tightly for the Ai family!”


Not far away, the two princesses and Xiao Xi saw Gu Qingtang’s back.

“Prince-in-law!” Xiao Xi couldn’t help shouting.

Yin Ning listened to the fighting in the distance and looked at Gu Qingtang’s familiar back. She felt that her panicked heart finally felt a little more at ease. She didn’t care about Ying Xiaoxi, so she picked up her skirt and chased after Gu Qingtang.

Wherever her consort is, she is there!

“Aning, be careful!” Yin Ying warned in a horrified voice and could only chase Yin Ning quickly.

At the same time, in the highest hall of the imperial city, Yin Changan, who was dressed in a golden uniform, poured himself a glass of wine leisurely and paid respect to the King of Light who was slumped in his chair.

“Brother, tell me, how does the old man feel now?”

The King of Light secretly gritted his teeth and said in a hoarse voice: “I don’t have to give up my country, and I don’t have to avenge the revenge of the past! Out of the love between you and my brother, I beg your majesty to let my son live!”

“My little nephew is so handsome, it would be a pity to kill him.” Yin Changan glanced sideways at the young prince who was tied with ropes at the foot of the dragon chair, and suddenly poured the wine in his hand at him, frightened He burst into tears in the palace.

“Father, save me! Save me!”

“Your Majesty! He is just a child!” King Light screamed in pain, but he was unable to stop Yin Chang’an at all. At this moment, he only hated himself for being so close. He never expected that the young prince’s wet nurse was actually Yin Changan’s insider secretly sent the young prince into the imperial city at the most critical moment.


Yin Changan suddenly smashed the wine glass in his hand next to the young prince. He stood up from the throne and sneered: “He is a child now, but he will not be a child in ten years. I’m afraid I can’t tolerate him! ”

“Your Majesty!”

Yin Changan saw the helpless roar of King of Light, and the joy in his heart became even stronger, “Brother, I always felt that I was ashamed of you, and I wanted to let you be the Prince of Peace, but why did you So restless? ”

“Please, Your Majesty, let my child go!”

“If you let him go, you won’t be so obedient.” Yin Chang’an laughed wildly, and suddenly gave a wink to the eighth father-in-law beside him, “Bafen, go and pour a cup for my good brother. Wine.”

“Yes.” Bafen walked over cautiously with the royal wine, poured a glass of wine for King Guang with his own hands, and then handed it to King Guang’s mouth, and advised, “My lord, the situation is over, you should be more aware of current affairs. ”

“Father, save me, these ropes are strangling the child so much that it hurts. I miss my mother and concubine!” The young prince cried miserably, his heart breaking.

King Guang looked at Yin Changan desperately, “Yin Changan, he is your nephew!”

“So what? Didn’t my brother join forces with that old fox, Taiwei Nian, to kill me?” Yin Changan responded coldly, “If you don’t drink this wine, I will let you Bafen fed it to the young prince with his own hands.”

“You…” King of Light gritted his teeth and looked at his child sadly, “My father is useless, my father can’t protect you…Father…take the first step…eight points, serve me. King drinks!”

Bafen nodded tremblingly and fed the royal wine into the King of Light’s mouth.

Wine is highly poisonous, and when it enters the throat, it hurts like a knife. King Guang stared at Yin Changan unwillingly. He couldn’t understand why Yin Changan knew about him and Taiwei Nian, let alone , why did that submissive little imperial brother back then have a heart more poisonous than a snake or a scorpion!
