Chapter 692: Ouyang Huanyu (4)
The Emperor was a cautious person, as shown by the fact that he did not send out more people to investigate.
He did the smart thing of choosing the principal of the academy Shen Yanxiao used to go to for this investigation.
Ouyang Huanyu was more than just her old principal.
He was also an outstanding magus himself.
Over the years, he had a firm grasp over the many elites Saint Laurent Academy had developed.
In the Longxuan Empire, he was a highly praised and respected individual.
He was a prudent and modest person who had always been revered by others.
To ask such a person to come to the Forsaken Land, the Emperor sure was smart.
Shen Yanxiao could not harm Ouyang Huanyu even if she indeed was harboring some ill intent.
Saint Laurent Academy had a history of several centuries, and it had been almost a century since Ouyang Huanyu was assigned as the principal of said academy.
For powerful people like him, their life span was not limited to a hundred years.
His long life span enabled him to train many talents over the years, which in turn caused many of the talents to feel indebted towards him.
The elites that had graduated from Saint Laurent Academy were now spread all over the Longxuan Empire, and they had absolute respect and love for Ouyang Huanyu.
If Shen Yanxiao were to mean Ouyang Huanyu any ill will, then the said elites would get revenge for their beloved teacher, even at the risk of everything.
On the other hand, it was also possible that the Emperor thought Shen Yanxiao would respect Ouyang Huanyu just like the other students.
That was highly likely the rationale of the Emperors decision rather than the first one.
Too bad, Shen Yanxiao was an exception.
Of course, she would not provoke Ouyang Huanyu over anything.
After all, the background of this old man was far too mysterious.
She never believed that this old man was just as simple as he appeared to be on the surface.
A principal of an academy could exert influence in the territory of the Blue Moon Dynasty.
How ridiculous was that
Shen Yanxiao sneered on the inside while still wearing a calm look on the outside.
“State Teacher Pei Yuan and Prince Long Yue are currently my guests in Sun Never Sets.
Can you tell me what the Emperor has instructed you to inquire about”
“He just told me to deliver some words of concern and love to them.
You know that the Emperor has only one son, Long Yue.
Naturally, the Emperor values his only son a lot.
Plus, Long Yue rarely leaves the capital.
But this time, he has stayed in Sun Never Sets for over two months without returning.
Understandably, the Emperor misses him.” Ouyang Huanyus answer was flawless.
It was as if he was the father of Prince Long Yue who had come to visit his son.
However, Shen Yanxiao was not stupid enough to trust those words of hypocrisy.
Only to deliver words of concern and love The Emperor must have suspected that his son was detained by her.
Since he had no proof of his suspicion, he sent Ouyang Huanyu here to check for him.
“Oh Really” Shen Yanxiao clenched her fists.
In actuality, there had been some change in Pei Yuan and Long Yues attitude.
That being said, she could not say for sure if they were going to reveal the truth to Ouyang Huanyu.
After all, she did in fact detain them, and Pei Yuan had compromised because he had no other choice when he was threatened by her.
If they were to meet Ouyang Huanyu now, they might expose everything about her and her city.
On the other hand, not letting Ouyang Huanyu meet them was indirect proof that the Emperors suspicion was right.
At the moment, Sun Never Sets reconstruction had yet to be finished.
If the Emperor wanted to attack the city, she could withstand it with force and use Long Yue as a hostage.
But as for Shen Feng who was far away in the capital…
“Of course, I am just here to deliver some words.
If State Teacher Pei Yuan and Prince Long Yue wish to continue staying here, they can stay here for as long as they like,” Ouyang Huanyu replied.
“Alright, I will take you to meet them later.” After much deliberation, Shen Yanxiao decided to let Ouyang Huanyu meet Pei Yuan and Long Yue.
Of course, she must do some preparations first.
Just in case.
