The skin on Hua Zhezhi's back split open, and the sight was shocking.
Little Lian sobbed in speechlessness as tears streamed down his face.
Xie Jingsheng stood at his original spot, the expression on his face was extremely gloomy, after the punishment was over, he was dragged in front of him.
Hua Yuyan raised his chin, but advised gently: "Big sister, why don't you kowtow and show your gratitude, and bring your servant girl back to rest?"
Hua Zhezhi's entire body was covered in blood, the person executing the punishment could not bear to watch any longer, so he cupped his hands and said, "My prince, Princess Consort Wang's injuries are so severe that even a minor injury would be torn. How about we avoid Consort Wang's etiquette ?"
"Is there a place for you to talk?" Hua Yuyan cast a dissatisfied glance at him, and those who had carried out the punishment immediately knelt on the ground, not daring to speak.
Just as Xie Jingsheng was about to speak, he sent someone to send Hua Zhezhi back. However, Hua Zhezhi slowly crawled back up, his hands supporting himself as he knelt down, with every movement, more blood flowed out from his back, his clothes were drenched in water, and dripped onto the ground.
She raised her head and respectfully saluted him. "Chenqie thanks Your Highness."
Xie Jingsheng's pupils contracted, and his clenched fists clattered loudly.
Not only did she not plead for mercy, she even used a concubine to call herself that.
Indeed, after meeting the Hereditary Prince of Nanli once, everything changed.
Hua Yuyan covered her lips and laughed: "Big sister is big sister, if little sister gets punished like this, I'm afraid that I would lose my life, big sister can still be this tenacious, I am truly impressed by little sister."
Hua Zhezhi did not reply, but looked at Xie Jingsheng, "My prince, could it be that you have returned Little Lian to your concubine?"
Xie Jingsheng was extremely furious, "Scram!"
When he heard those words, Hua Zhezhi smiled.
She could not get up, bowing to him had exhausted all of her strength, so Little Lian released her and rushed towards her.
Hua Zhezhi carefully supported her up as he cried. Hua Zhezhi gave him a final glance, "Your highness's wedding yesterday, your concubine has yet to congratulate Your Highness and the secondary wife. I wish the two of you will grow old together, and have your grandchildren fill the hall."
After she finished speaking, she didn't even bother to look at the man's expression as she turned around and left.
His blood dripped onto the ground, wetting the bluestone path in the Prince's Mansion.
Xie Jingsheng stared deadly at Hua Zhezhi's back, his throat was filled with words, this was the first time since he came back from the border that he felt such fear.
It was as if he was about to lose something.
But she clearly didn't want him anymore. Many years ago, when he was about to die, she didn't want him anymore ?
He clasped his hands, no longer looking at her, and turned away.
Hua Yuyan looked at Hua Zhezhi again and his lips curved up in a smile.
"Your Highness, please wait for me ?"
Once Xie Jingsheng left, most of the people on the road started to mock him. They were all servants of the Duke Palaces, so how bad was Hua Zhezhi's reputation in their palace?
Someone spat on Hua Zhezhi's face. Little Lian's crying shoulders trembled violently, she glared at them fiercely with red eyes, urging them to stop, but no one paid them any attention. There were even people who smashed rocks on Hua Zhezhi's body.
Countless voices rushed towards her, causing Hua Zhezhi to not be able to hear them clearly.
She looked into the distance and stumbled forward, a hint of a bleak smile on her lips.
The injuries on her body were enough to sever all hope for him, and she had finally ?
It was time to stop.
