After all the ministers heard that, they were alarmed and hurriedly knelt down. "Your Majesty, please reconsider!"
"I've made up my mind and you don't need to say more." The Emperor waved his hands and his expression was extremely cold and detached.
"Haha!" The man laughed in ridicule, "If I had known earlier, I would have prevented Tong'er from entering the palace! She loved the wrong person and ruined her life! Dog Emperor, do you think I've failed since the Empress woke up? No, you're wrong! All these years, I've been making you a cuckold, hahaha!"
The Emperor was shocked. "What did you say?"
"Consort Shu and I have been committing adultery! Otherwise, why do you think she helped me? In addition, every time when you flipped Consort Shu's tablet, I had just finished making love with her. You've been using a woman I've used. I bet that feeling isn't great, am I right?"
A wicked smiled curled on his lips as the words he spoke were mocking the Emperor.
Consort Shu stared blankly. She didn't expect this man would reveal this matter in public and her eyes were suffused with fear.
"Imperial Mother!" Jiang Mengyao's body trembled, "Is what he says the truth?"
Consort Shu turned and avoided Jiang Mengyao's gaze.
Looking at this scene, Jiang Mengyao's footsteps staggered and she nearly collapsed on the ground. Never having expected that the Imperial Mother she respected the most, had actually committed such an offense...
"Are you done speaking?" The Emperor coldly looked at him, "Consort Shu is insignificant to me and thus, other than making me feel disgusted, the things you've done do not affect me!"
After he finished speaking, the Emperor's expression turned cold. "Guards, arrest this man!"
"You're thinking of arresting me with your guards?" The man slightly narrowed his eyes and looked towards Yun Xiao. "Young man, as the proverb says, give yourself some room for whatever you do in case we meet again. This matter was originally not related to you, and I apologize for my rude behavior to Miss Yun earlier on. If you let me off today, I will repay your kindness sometime in the future!"
Yun Xiao coldly gazed at him. His emotionless face was cold and detached as he did not utter a single word.
Consort Shu suddenly reacted as she hastily ran to the man and tightly held his legs. "Take me along with you and don't leave me behind, or else these people will definitely kill me!"
"Scram!" The man's expression sank as he sternly shouted.
"You can't be so heartless. Even if you don't take me into consideration, you have to care for Mengyao. Unless you want your biological daughter to die here?
The man's palm almost slapped on Consort Shu's skull due to anger. He furiously shouted while trembling, "Do you know what you just said?"
As the saying goes, a tiger, though cruel, will not devour its cubs.
No matter how ruthless he was, he wasn't willing to hurt his own child. This was also the reason he did not reveal Jiang Mengyao's background. Yet, who would have thought that this foolish woman would directly reveal this? After knowing this, how would the Emperor allow her to live?
Consort Shu wasn't aware of her mistakes and firmly hugged the man's legs. Right now, he was her sole hope to save her life.
"I beg you to take us mother and daughter to escape to faraway places, I…"
The man kicked and caused Consort Shu's body to flip over on the ground as he hastily explained, "I am not related to Jiang Mengyao and she's not my daughter!"
The tone of him wanting to clarify their relationship caused Consort Shu to regain her senses and horror emerged from her eyes while she cautiously turned towards Jiang Mengyao.
"Mengyao…" She lightly whispered while looking nervous.In ancient times, the Emperor would flip a Consort's tablet if they wanted to visit their chambers at night. 5 Best Chinese Romance Books of 2018 So Far
