Chapter 674: You Wont Die if You Dont Seek Death (5)
Before Pei Yuan mentioned the demons, Shen Yanxiao had no choice but to exercise restraint.
However, after he opened the demon pandoras box, it implied that the Emperor would be informed that Shen Yanxiao was partnering with demons.
By that time, the Emperor would decide whether she could build Sun Never Sets or not.
Sun Never Sets would not be hers any longer.
To make it worse, she would be punished for the crime.
Naturally, Shen Yanxiao would not accept such a doomed situation.
Since the fact could no longer be concealed, she would rather put all her cards on the table! She did not have to be patient and endure all these insults anymore.
All she needed to do was to make sure that every single one of the envoys would stay in Sun Never Sets forever!
“I am truly surprised by your perception, state teacher.
I had thought that I could throw you off the scent and that would be the end of the matter.
But I did not foresee that you would see through me.
Such being the case, I no longer have to conceal or hide anything.” Shen Yanxiao waved her hand casually and stared at Li Qi, who was hiding behind Pei Yuan, with a grin as she continued in an unhurried tone.
“It is truly sad that I cannot follow your orders to eliminate the demons here, because all the demons in Sun Never Sets are my citizens!” Shen Yanxiao laughed out loud.
She raised her chin with absolute arrogance.
“Your citizens You treat demons as your citizens Have you lost your mind Dont you know that demons eat humans Are you crazy! No, you are a demon yourself, arent you You are a demon in a human form!” Li Qi cried out in alarm.
The way Shen Yanxiao looked at him made him feel like a rabbit that was the end of a vipers fangs.
Shen Yanxiao smiled and addressed Li Qi who turned pale.
“Demon No, I prefer you to call me the Lord of Demons.”
“But none matters now.
Since you have uncovered my secret, then before I finish Sun Never Sets, you will have to stay in Sun Never Sets.” Shen Yanxiao smiled so brilliantly that she looked like an innocent lily, but her words were like a poisonous poppy.
“You want us to stay here” Pei Yuan tightly held his staff.
He told himself that he had misjudged the situation.
As he had expected, the kid was nothing ordinary.
He had to admire her for her endurance from before and her current resolution.
“That is right.” Shen Yanxiao had no intention of covering up her purpose.
If they were let go, she would suffer a complete loss.
Only by detaining them here could her secret be kept.
“If you do this, the Emperor will notice something wrong soon enough.
A large group of people has come with us to the Forsaken Land for an inspection.
If we do not go back after the due date, the Emperor will be suspicious.
By then, you will still be doomed.” Pei Yuan tried hard to steady his breaths.
He had the Bai Ze with him.
That being said, he dared not to fling caution to the wind yet.
He was not sure whether the two hundred plus high-ranked demons Shen Yanxiao mentioned existed in reality.
If they really did exist, he would just be sending himself to a pit of doom if he acted rashly.
Shen Yanxiao blinked with a smile.
“State teacher, you dont have to worry about that.
I really have to thank you for bringing me this get-out-of-jail-for-free card.
Previously, I had some concerns that would hold me back.
But now, with this get-out-of-jail-for-free card, I believe the Emperor will not do anything to harm me even if he notices something is off.”
As she uttered the last words, Shen Yanxiao turned her eyes to Long Yue who had been standing on the side in a daze.
Long Yue was dumbstruck by what he heard.
He stared at Shen Yanxiao as she moved her lips with a dull look on his face.
“The only prince in the Longxuan Empire, the future crown prince.
With such a hostage, do you think the Emperor can deal with me the hard way”
