Everyone held their breath.
They could feel the end was coming.
“All of you were hiding this from me and I let me act like a fool, not knowing the truth.
My daughter was abducted and no one knows if she is still alive.
Yet, here I am living a happy and carefree life shamelessly.
If Manna had not barged inside, how long were you planning to hide this from me” Lu Liangwei did not shriek hysterically.
Her voice was calm, as if she was talking about something quite common.
Chu Jiu felt even more depressed when she saw Lu Liangwei this way.
She would rather Her Highness scream to vent whatever emotions she was going through rather than act in such a calm and collected manner.
“Your Highness, His Majesty had sent many men to search for her.
Theres also Chu Qi…” Chu Jius voice was a little dry.
She had no idea how to continue under Lu Liangweis stare.
Chu Jiu lowered her head.
“Get me my horse!” Lu Liangwei suddenly said.
“What” Chu Jiu lifted her head abruptly as she looked at Lu Liangwei in shock.
Lu Liangwei waved her fingers and pressed the bloody dagger against her own neck.
Chu Jius feet turned to jelly as she almost fell.
“Your Highness, please dont do anything rash.
Today is the little prince and princesss full moon banquet…”
“But I have no idea if my youngest daughter is dead or alive.
How can I still celebrate their one-month-old birthday” Lu Liangwei suddenly roared.
Long Yin and Long Yinyao had been well taken care of since they were born.
They had enjoyed a life pampered by everyone around them, but her youngest daughter almost was not even born.
She had been birthed after great difficulty, then she was almost thrown to death by her own father and was later tossed down a cliff.
No one knew if she was even alive.
The very thought of this pained Lu Liangwei tremendously.
It was more torturous than being dismembered piece by piece.
Oh God, how could something like this happen
How could something so cruel happen to her daughter
Her daughter was a newborn.
She was so small, so helpless…
Chu Jiu wiped her tears away.
“Alright, Ill get the horse.
Please wait for me, Your Highness!” With that, Chu Jiu got up and quickly hurried off.
At the door, she bumped into Zhu Yu, who was on her way back.
Zhu Yu quickly grabbed Chu Jiu when saw the upset expression on the womans face.
“Jiu, whats wrong with you You look terrible!”
“Her Highness found out about everything.
Hurry up and inform His Majesty about this! Her Highness is planning to leave the Palace to search for Third Princess!” Chu Jiu quickly instructed Zhu Yu.
Zhu Yu was stunned.
Her eyes widened when she realized what had happened, but she did not hesitate and quickly ran off.
Chu Jiu did not dare delay a second at the thought of the dagger across Her Highnesss neck.
She quickly went to get the horse.
Long Yin and Long Yinyao were woken up by the commotion in the bedchamber.
They were crying loudly in bed.
Lu Liangwei felt a pang of pain when she heard the sound, but she ignored them and jumped out of the window.
There were many people still inside the Palace.
They would take good care of the two children.
As for her youngest daughter…
Lu Liangwei tried to suppress the pain she felt and dragged up Manna, who was trembling and lying limp in the pool of her blood.
“You had better pray that my daughter isnt dead.
Otherwise, Ill turn you into Homunculus, so that you wont be able to die even if you wanted to.”
Manna had been in the Palace long enough to have heard of this particular inhumane punishment.
She almost forgot the pain when she heard the threat.
Lu Liangwei dragged her toward the Palace gates.
Today was the childrens full moon banquet and the Dowager Duchess was also at the Palace.
The Dowager Duchess bumped into Long Qingzhi, Lin Qingyuan, and others who were on their way to Grand Phoenix Palace to see the children.
When they arrived in front of the palace, they witnessed the scene of a woman pulling another woman drenched in blood as they made their way out of the palace.
