With a “clang” sound, the brass candlestick fell to the ground.
Murong Xiu seemed to be awakened by that sound, the previous celebration no longer existed, only panic remained. He looked outside the palace with some panic.The Regent couldn’t die yet, if he died, not to mention that the Regent’s people would kill him, his few fief imperial uncles, he was afraid that they wouldn’t be able to tolerate him.
When he saw no one come in, he turned his head stiffly to look at the Regent, who was sprawled on the couch, with blood still running from the back of his head.
“Is he dead…dead?”
Shen Jue looked at the obviously terrified Murong Xiu and helped Murong Xiu put his clothes back on before helping the other man to go sit down on the other side of the couch.
“Your Majesty, don’t be afraid.”
Murong Xiu was so frightened by the sudden change and the wine he had consumed made him slow to respond to Shen Jue’s changes, and he even instinctively listened to the other man’s words.Shen Jue calmed Murong Xiu down before going to check on the Regent. He placed his hand under the regent’s nose.
“Your Majesty, the Regent is still alive.”
Shen Jue whispered softly.
Murong Xiu breathed a sigh of relief at the news, but his heart came back up before his breath went down for long.
“Shen Jue, if he wakes up, we…”
The Regent would not let them go.
Murong Xiu gritted his teeth, simply not daring to imagine the consequences.
Shen Jue’s expression was calm though, as he walked up to Murong Xiu and squatted down. His face was still stained with the Regent’s blood, and he looked horrifying, “It was the Regent who first offended His Majesty, this matter is not His Majesty’s business, the beating is also slave’s beating, Your Majesty can just hand over the slave then.”
“No.” Murong Xiu immediately retorted, “You were trying to protect me, I… I only have you by my side.”
If it wasn’t for Shen Jue tonight, he would have been humiliated by now.
Murong Xiu turned his eyes towards the unconscious Regent, hatred flashed in his eyes, why did this man look at him? He was obviously a man who was normal. He was the Son of Heaven, not a plaything in bed.
“But if His Majesty doesn’t hand over slave, the Regent won’t rest until he does.” Shen Jue lowered his eyes, “It’s just that if slave isn’t here, I’m afraid there will be no one to protect His Majesty.”
Murong Xiu’s hand couldn’t help but clench into a fist as he heard, his nails almost pinching into his flesh, “Why should I hand you over?The Regent he…he cheated me first, I was just saving myself.” It was a shame for him to say this, he was obviously a grown man, but he had to worry about his body all the time.
Even if he handed over Shen Jue this time, the regent wouldn’t let him off.
Murong Xiu thought of this and fiercely grabbed Shen Jue’s hand, “Shen Jue, is there any way to make the Regent no longer interested in me?”
He was in a great fright tonight and panicked, taking Shen Jue as his salvation.
Shen Jue looked down at Murong Xiu’s hand that was gripping his arm tightly, and the smile in his eyes flickered away. He lifted his head slightly and looked reverently at the beauty in front of him, his voice extremely low, “Your Majesty, of course there is.”
Murong Xiu was startled as he looked at the Shen Jue in front of him.
Why did he feel as if the person in front of him was a different person? It was as if the person in front of him was no longer Shen Jue but a demon, the demon was gentle and sweet to him and soothed his troubled soul, but he felt that the other person was dangerous, as if he had saved him from the abyss only to take him to another abyss, an abyss that he would never be able to come out of.
Shen Jue didn’t care about Murong Xiu’s daze at this point, he continued, “The Regent loves this face of His Majesty ah, if His Majesty doesn’t have this face, the Regent will naturally stop pestering His Majesty.”
Murong Xiu’s eyes flickered, “Is that…?”
Shen Jue said with certainty, “Yes, hasn’t His Majesty noticed yet?The Regent was clearly in love with the second prince before, but changed his mind after meeting His Majesty, even despite the opposition of his men. His Majesty has never given the Regent a good face, but the Regent is still pestering His Majesty, why does His Majesty think the Regent likes His Majesty?”
In the meantime, Murong Xiu’s eyebrows raised to the fact that he felt that Shen Jue’s words made sense.
The regent was only interested in him for his lustful appearance.
If he didn’t have it, the regent wouldn’t pester him.
Yes, as long as he didn’t have this face, there would be peace in the world and he wouldn’t have to worry about his body anymore.
Murong Xiu’s eyes gradually changed, the way he looked at Shen Jue became crazy, “You’re right, I’m a man, why should I focus on my looks?As long as I don’t have that face, I can continue to be the Son Of Heaven instead of a plaything.”
He didn’t want to be looked at that way by the regent anymore.
“Shen Jue, what am I supposed to do? What would it take to ruin this face?”Murong Xiu was anxious.
Shen Jue held Murong Xiu’s hand, patted it reassuringly and said gently, “If Your Majesty trusts slave, let slave do it, it will hurt a little.”
Murong Xiu laughed, “I’m not afraid of the pain, you do it, I trust you.”
Shen Jue looked at Murong Xiu and really wanted to laugh out loud.
How stupid, but he had given several lifetimes for such a stupid Murong Xiu.
What senior brother said about love really meant nothing at all.
Shen Jue stood up and walked over to Murong Xiu’s rosette, which was the crown cap of the Son of Heaven. After glancing at it, Shen Jue plucked the golden hairpin off the rosette. He held the golden hairpin in his hand and hooked his lower lip in satisfaction.
Shen Jue had more or less taken Murong Xiu’s body into consideration, so he also smoked the end of the golden hairpin with a candle.
Murong Xiu was still a bit unresponsive when he saw Shen Jue coming over with the golden hairpin.
With Shen Jue’s hand facing upwards, there was a golden hairpin lying on top, the one that Murong Xiu usually fixed his hair with.
“Your Majesty, a slave will use the golden hairpin to ruin the face of Your Majesty, and it’s not too late for Your Majesty to repent.” He said softly, “It’s just that the Regent won’t be able to stop easily anymore.”
Murong Xiu looked at the golden hairpin, his lips trembled, and many emotions flashed in his eyes, but in the end, only one remained. He looked at Shen Jue firmly and stubbornly, “Do it, I want to be the Son of Heaven.”
Shen Jue lifted his hand at the words, his hand gently touching Murong Xiu’s face.
He had adored this face for several lifetimes, and now it would be destroyed by his own hands.
“No matter what His Majesty becomes, slave will remain loyal to His Majesty. Slave will only have one master in this life, and if he breaks his oath, let the slave be bruised and destroyed in form and spirit.” Shen Jue said word for word, and his right hand holding the golden hairpin lifted.
Murong Xiu glanced at the golden hairpin, his long eyelashes trembled, and finally he slowly closed his eyes.
He believed in Shen Jue, Shen Jue would not lie to him.
Shen Jue pursed his lips and smiled, the corners of his eyes reddening a little, and the smile on his face became restrained, his eyes were only solemn. He raised his hand and slashed down heavily at Murong Xiu’s face. Murong Xiu screamed, and Shen Jue bullied his way forward and pressed Murong Xiu down with a death grip, “Your Majesty, don’t be afraid.”
His voice was so gentle, but if Murong Xiu opened his eyes now, he could see that Shen Jue’s eyes were really no different from an evil ghost.
Shen Jue had long since ceased to be the original.
Now he was more like a demon in human skin.
Shen Jue licked the blood that had splashed onto the corner of his lip and continued to make a second stroke on Murong Xiu’s face.
Murong Xiu trembled in pain and he began to whisper Shen Jue’s name.
“Your Majesty, slave is here.”Shen Jue reassured Murong Xiu as he slowly destroyed the beautiful face in front of him.
Since the heavens didn’t want him to be an immortal, he would be a demon.
He, Shen Jue, had nothing left now but a vengeful heart.
The pain he had suffered, he would return it tenfold, a hundredfold, and a thousandfold.
Murong Xiu cried out in pain, his tears mixed with blood all over his face, looking really miserable. When Shen Jue saw this, he threw away the golden hairpin and hugged the poor beauty compassionately, warmly comforting him, “Your Majesty, it’s alright, it’s over.”
“It hurts, Shen Jue, I’m in so much pain.” Murong Xiu couldn’t even open his eyes, his eyes were covered in blood.
The pain made him forget to call himself ‘lord’.
Shen Jue’s hand patted him on the back, his voice sounding like it was floating from a faraway place.
“Slave will stay with Your Majesty, always stay with Your Majesty.”
So, please hurry up and fall in love with me.
Because, I can’t wait to take you to hell.
