“Qing’er, you’re the one who is wrong now.”
Nan Xian lowered his eyes and looked at Tan Shuangshuang, who was kneeling in front of him and Feng Ruqing. His eyes were calm.
Tan Shuangshuang cried even harder now. Her face was wet with tears.
Tan Shuangshuang seemed so pitiful and miserable. All the others sympathized with her. “State preceptor, we cannot blame the princess for this. After all…”
“This is indeed Qing’er’s fault.” There was a faintly discerned smile on Nan Xian’s face. “Tan Shuangshuang wishes for this. Why don’t you grant her wish? Just let her endure the two hundred whippings for Liu Yuchen. Qing’er is always so kind. You wouldn’t refuse this kind of wish.”
His words sounded so calm and gentle. But, Feng Rushuang was stunned.
Tan Shuangshuang’s heart trembled vigorously. There was fear in her eyes.
‘Three hundred whippings! That’ll definitely kill me! If I’m not dead by then, I will not be able to get down from the bed for the rest of my life.’
“Princess.” Liu Yuchen looked at Tan Shuangshuang’s pale face. He gritted his teeth and said, “I don’t need Tan Shuangshuang to endure it for me. Please let her go.”
Feng Ruqing squinted. She smiled softly. “Since Tan Shuangshuang loves you deeply, I’ll not disregard her wish given that I like to grant people’s wishes. But, Tan Shuangshuang will not live after three hundred whippings. How about this? Give her a hundred and fifty whippings first. Then, we’ll give her the remaining a hundred and fifty whippings after she recovers after a few days.”
Tan Shuangshuang’s face paled like a sheet of white paper. Her lip trembled, and there was deep fear in her eyes.
‘A hundred and fifty whippings will put me in bed for a few months. But, she just allows me to rest for a few days before giving me another a hundred and fifty whippings.’
‘Even if I survived this, I’ll not be able to endure great pain.’
‘But, it’s I who have said those words. I need to endure the consequences.’
“Why are you standing there doing nothing? Go quickly!” Feng Ruqing glanced at the shopkeeper of the spirit herbs shop.
The shopkeeper quickly recovered his composure and coughed a few times. “Princess, please wait for a while. I’ll take Tan Shuangshuang to torture room for the punishment. Princess, you will be satisfied with this result.”
After that, the shopkeeper signaled to the person next to him. That person quickly recovered and moved forward to grab Tan Shuangshuang.
Tan Shuangshuang was indeed anxious.
She quickly held out her hand. She wanted to hold onto Liu Yuchen’s hand. Her face was pale. She even babbled hysterically. “Yuchen, save me! Yuchen, come and save me!”
“Shuang’er.” Liu Yuchen’s eyes were swollen and red. He was about to hold Tan Shuangshuang’s hand. Suddenly, Qin Chen stood in front of him and stopped him.
“No! You can’t treat her like this. She’s innocent. I’m the one who has made all the mistakes. Princess, please let her go. I beg you. Please let her go.”
Liu Yuchen turned and kneeled down in front of Feng Ruqing. His voice was trembling. There were both anger and pain in his eyes.
The feeling of watching the woman he loved being dragged away for punishment made Liu Yuchen feel utterly helpless.
Feng Ruqing lowered her eyes and scanned Liu Yuchen. “Of course, you can protect Tan Shuangshuang. Then, we’ll return a hundred whippings to Lady Liu. How about that?”
“Yuchen!” Lady Liu’s expression changed drastically. She held onto Liu Yuchen’s sleeve nervously. There was great pain in her eyes. “Do you want me to be whipped?”
Liu Yuchen’s body froze at this. He closed his eyes slowly.
