Venomous Empress Reborn - Chapter 605
605 You Have to Stay Away From Prince Rui (4)
“Are you really that confident?” Shen Qiu asked.
Shen Miao said, “Don’t worry, Brother. This really has nothing to do with me.”
Only then did Shen Qiu heave a sigh of relief and say, “Don’t go out for the next few days. The capital is not peaceful, and there are some people with ulterior motives. I’ve added more guards to patrol the mansion. I think it’s safe.”
Shen Miao nodded. Shen Qiu stood up. He still had military affairs to attend to and had to rush back. Just as he was about to leave, he suddenly thought of something and turned to look at Shen Miao, asking, “Sister, do you know anyone powerful?”
Shen Miao’s heart skipped a beat, but her expression was calm. She shook her head and said, “No.”
Shen Qiu did not say anything else and turned to leave.
In fact, Shen Qiu’s worry was right. That night, a special guest dropped in on Prince Ding. This distinguished guest was none other than the crown prince of the State of Qin, Huangfu Hao, who had been extremely angry because of his sister’s tragic death.
In the throne room, Fu Xiuyi’s casual words made the paranoid Huangfu Hao decide to make this trip. Before Huangfu Hao came, Fu Xiuyi asked Pei Lang to hide in the next room and listen to their conversation.
Huangfu Hao placed the teacup in his hand down heavily. He did not beat about the bush with Fu Xiuyi and went straight to the point. “Prince Ding, you said that you feel that there’s something strange about my sister’s death. Can you elaborate?”
“Crown Prince, don’t be anxious.” Fu Xiuyi smiled faintly. “I’m also deeply saddened by Princess Ming An’s tragic death. However, the most urgent thing is not to catch the murderer.”
Huangfu Hao frowned and looked at Fu Xiuyi with a cold smile. “Could it be that Prince Ding also thinks that I should let this matter rest? I don’t know how people in Ming Qi do things, but in the State of Qin, the death of a princess is the top priority that needs to be attended to. Even if I let the matter rest today, when my father finds out about this in the future, he will be much harder to deal with than me. We came just to attend the tribute banquet, but Ming An died in humiliation. Do you think that’s a small matter?”

His words were filled with threat.
Fu Xiuyi shook his head and said, “I won’t beat around the bush with you. Generally speaking, there will always be a reason for a murder to happen. It seems that the Xie brothers and Princess Ming An were killed at the same time, and the corpses were deliberately arranged in an insulting way. The murderer clearly wants to ruin Princess Ming An’s reputation. In other words, the murderer is targeting Princess Ming An.”
Huangfu Hao sneered. “Of course I know. I wonder who is so bold as to do such a thing.”
“Your Highness, think about it. Who in Ming Qi would have such a grudge with Princess Ming An?”
Huangfu Hao was stunned for a moment, then he frowned and fell into deep thought. Princess Ming An was arrogant and usually beat and scolded her servants. However, because her father told her not to kick up a fuss to anger Emperor Wen Hui, Princess Ming An had restrained her temper. Therefore, although Princess Ming An was impudent, she did not offend anyone in Ming Qi.

Unless… Huangfu Hao suddenly thought of something and his eyes lit up. Then, he asked in a low voice, “You mean Shen Miao?”
Fu Xiuyi smiled but did not say anything.
“That’s impossible!” Huangfu Hao said, “Even if she has a grudge against Ming An and Ming An teased her, Shen Miao is just a woman. Ming An even has guards by her side. How can Shen Miao deal with the guards?”
Fu Xiuyi smiled and shook his head. “Shen Miao can’t, but don’t forget that she’s Shen Xin’s daughter. How much does Shen Xin love his daughter? I think you’ve seen it with your own eyes at the banquet.”
