Chapter 678: Control the Emperor and Command the Nobles (1)
In a blink of an eye, she had arrived behind Li Qi, who was already weak in his knees and had already collapsed to the ground.
Pulling his collar, she dragged Li Qi up.
“This has saved me so much trouble.”
“Ah!!” Li Qi was pulled up to Shen Yanxiaos eye level.
The once presumptuous Li Qi had turned pale and was soaked in a cold sweat.
“Shen Yanxiao, what are you doing” Pei Yuan was frightened.
Overwhelmed by the eight mythical beasts, though, he did not dare to act rashly.
Shen Yanxiao raised her eyebrows and cast a glance to the hard-pressed Li Qi.
A trace of a smile climbed to her mouth.
“What am I doing To seek revenge, of course.”
Pei Yuan was surprised.
Almost immediately, he remembered how Li Qi had verbally insulted Shen Yanxiao when they had just arrived at Sun Never Sets.
The reason Shen Yanxiao had not said anything then, was not because she had a good temper, but because she was being cautious.
Pei Yuan was filled with regret.
If he knew this would be the case, he would not for the life of him upset this sleeping dragon.
Since Shen Yanxiao had no more of such concerns, she would of course not forgive Li Qi who had spoken rudely to her.
“State teacher, help me! Help me!” Li Qi struggled fiercely, begging for help from Pei Yuan.
Pei Yuan felt sorry.
“Li Qi has offended you.
But, please, for the sake of the fact that he is an official of the Longxuan Empire, let him go.”
Shen Yanxiao chuckled.
“Such a pity.
I am not the type of person who will return evil with good.
Franky, I never planned on letting him go.
Even if this didnt happen, I would have sent someone to the capital to kill Li Qi after you went back.”
She had endured the humiliation because otherwise she might endanger the people she cared about.
However, eating a humble pie was a temporary solution.
Nobody could step away unharmed after they had offended her.
Pei Yuan had more to say but Shen Yanxiao went on, “State Teacher Pei Yuan, I dont think you have the right to negotiate.
I think youd better concern yourself with the safety of the prince and yourself instead of worrying about this loser.”
Shen Yanxiao spoke right to the point.
Pei Yuan might want to help Li Qi but he had to protect Long Yue.
Pei Yuans silence cut off the last hope of survival for Li Qi.
He shed tears in misery and begged for mercy.
But Shen Yanxiao never planned to let him go.
“You like to make irresponsible remarks, dont you Lets see if you are bold enough to say anything now.” Shen Yanxiao kicked Li Qi to the ground and looked down at the wailing and whining man.
Naturally, Li Qi could not act with arrogance.
He knelt and asked for pardon.
“No, I dare not to.
City lord, please forgive me.
I was wrong.
I have a cheap mouth.
A great man rarely stoops to pettiness or harbors grievance for past wrongs.
Please do not fuss about a piece of rubbish like me.”
Shen Yanxiao kicked him away with a cold grin.
“Take him down and lock him up.
Do not give him food or water without my order.”
She would not beat him or kill him.
She would let him starve and thirst to death, waiting for his death to come slowly in a dark corner.
Killing him with one blow would be very efficient but that would be too easy on him.
That high-ranked demon waiting on the side stepped forward to yank Li Qi up.
The latter was still struggling.
Hearing Li Qis cries of misery, Pei Yuans expression was awful.
Shen Yanxiao turned to Pei Yuan and Long Yue after she was done with Li Qi.
“I present to you two options.
First option, do as I say and behave, write a letter to that old man in the capital, and tell him that you want to stay in the Forsaken Land for some time.
The reason is that you have everything under control here and that you will slowly shift the power to you.
If you work well with me, you will still be regarded as honorable guests in Sun Never Sets.”
