Chapter 670: There’s A Mature Soul Living Inside My Body

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Lu Liangwei laid against his chest as she listened to his strong and stable heartbeat. A strange feeling crept up within her.

“Why aren’t you saying anything?” Long Yang lifted her chin when he noticed her lying quietly against him without saying a word.

His voice lowered as he asked gently, “What’s wrong?”

Lu Liangwei blinked. She did not want him to know what she was thinking and changed the topic. “How did you get poisoned, Your Majesty?”

Long Yang’s fingers traveled across her soft, tender face. He paused when he heard her words. “In the third year following my mother’s passing, I went to offer my prayers at the imperial mausoleum during her death anniversary. I wanted to personally collect her remains and give her a proper burial. However, when I returned to the Palace, I threw up blood and fainted. Chief Physician Lin treated me for many days before determining that I had gotten Frostbite. The effect of the poison was devastating. It wasn’t able to cause me immediate death, but it would render me… heirless. Chief Physician Lin had treated me for many years before he managed to get the poison inside me under control.” At this point, his almond-shaped eyes narrowed slightly and there was slight embarrassment on his face.

Lu Liangwei was a little shocked when she heard this. This would mean that he had been poisoned in the imperial mausoleum.

She was about to ask him some follow-up questions when she noticed his reaction. She was a little amused and ended up consoling him instead. “You have been fortunate, Your Majesty. Didn’t Chief Physician Lin manage to cure you of…that in the end?” With that, she snuck a look at his crotch.

Long Yang noticed her actions and looked deeply into her with his soulful eyes. After a while, he caressed her hair and sighed. “Weiwei, there are times when you make me feel that you aren’t really fifteen.”

No matter how mature a fifteen-year-old girl was, it was impossible for her to act as Weiwei did.

Sometimes, Weiwei spoke with incredible wisdom and knowledge, which gave him the impression that she was not really fifteen.

This was especially pronounced with the way she had tried to console him. It seemed like she handled it with experience and maturity.

Lu Liangwei blinked when she heard his words. She said, half-jokingly and half-seriously, “It could be that there’s a mature soul living inside my body.”

Long Yang’s lips broke into a smile as he curled his finger to flick her lightly on the forehead. “Stop reading those ghost stories. Otherwise, your little mind will be filled with all sorts of weird ideas.”

Lu Liangwei sighed. There was nothing she could do when no one believed her even if she told the truth.

“By the way, did you get poisoned after touching the remains, Your Majesty?”

Long Yang nodded. “That’s right. Mother’s remains were the only things I touched upon entering the imperial mausoleum. Zhao Qian and a few other guards had followed me into the imperial mausoleum, but they ended up fine. From that, I deduced that Mother’s remains had been tampered with by someone.”

Lu Liangwei nodded. Even though she had already guessed this, she was still shocked after hearing it. Regardless, she would never have imagined that His Majesty was poisoned this way.

It also made sense in a way since His Majesty would never be guarded against his own mother.

Whoever poisoned him must have put in a lot of effort.

“Do you know who was the one that poisoned your mother’s remains, Your Majesty?”

“Investigations later revealed it to be the Prince of Lasting Peace.”

Long Yang paused as he remembered that she probably had no idea who the Prince of Lasting Peace was. He proceeded to explain, “The Prince of Lasting Peace was also the Second Prince. After the death of the Crown Prince, he was the one who had the best chance of taking the throne. He was very upset about losing the throne and sent someone to sneak into the imperial mausoleum to smear Frostbite onto my mother’s remains.”

Lu Liangwei was a little surprised as she pressed on, “What happened to the Prince of Lasting Peace in the end?”

“Once his wrongdoing was revealed, he committed suicide,” Long Yang replied with indifference.

Lu Liangwei nodded. This meant that the Prince of Lasting Peace had a motive for poisoning him.. That said, why did the Prince of Lasting Peace use a poison with such dubious effects instead of a poison that would kill him on the spot?
