Chapter 365: Worried, beg for mercy (Part 1)

Without question, Lin Chujiu was brought to the palace prison. Lin Chujiu was not surprised at all, the palace people had used a drastic moved to frame her so that she wouldn’t be able to escape easily.

Today, the event was actually pretty rough. The poisoning of the Seventh Prince was completely different from everyone’s expectation. However, although there were many loopholes, the Seventh Prince was indeed got poisoned in front of her, she can’t escape.

“It’s really a big mistake to go to the palace.” Sitting on the stone bed in the prison, Lin Chujiu hugged her legs with her hands and then silently smile. She couldn’t think of someone that could save her.

Xiao Tianyao was not in the capital city, and it’s impossible for him to suddenly pop out here. And no need to ask about the Lin Family, Lin Xiang will likely use this chance to look for her death. How is he going to save her? As for her maternal family?

Just like Xiao Tianyao said, they are powerless.

“You can only rely on yourself.” Lin Chujiu got up and stood back against the prison door, looking at the small window above her head… …

In Xiao Wangfu, Housekeeper Cao’s eyes have always been looking at the direction of the palace. When he hadn’t seen Lin Chujiu returned yet, he had a bad feeling inside his heart.

“Did something bad happened?” Housekeeper Cao was upset and immediately sent someone to inquire.

The people in the palace couldn’t easily find out what happened, but it was not difficult for the people of Xiao Wangfu. Soon, Housekeeper Cao learned that Lin Chujiu was sent to the palace prison for poisoning the seventh prince.

“Poisoning the seventh prince? Why would our family’s Wangfei do this kind of thing? Is the seventh prince worthy enough for our Wangfei to dirty her hands?” Houskeeper Cao heart jumped up.

People with discerning eyes could see clearly, that their Wangfei has no motive to murder the Seventh Prince.

“Hurry, go and find Su Gongzi.” Housekeeper Cao anxiously turned around and immediately sent people to invite Su Cha to come in Xiao Wangfu.

Coincidentally, Su Cha brought a letter to Xiao Wangfu and is looking for Lin Chujiu. The two parties met at the door. When Su Cha heard the news, the smile on his face immediately solidified: “Wangfei was sent in the palace prison?”

“Yes, it is said that the emperor personally gave this order, saying that Wangfei tried to murder the seventh prince.” The servant doesn’t know much, so he said: “This slave doesn’t know much details, please ask Housekeeper Cao to know more.”

“Go, take me to see Housekeeper Cao.” Su Cha strode forward and didn’t dare to delay further.

Housekeeper Cao was walking back and forth in the flower hall. When he saw Su Cha coming, he immediately greeted him: “Su Gongzi, you came, hurry, please save our Wangfei. Wangfei is locked in the palace prison.”

Although Housekeeper Cao was so anxious, he was still coherent. He reported the result of their investigation. The Empress’s courtyard was full of the empress’s cronies, they could only get limited information.

But judging from the news of Housekeeper Cao, Lin Chujiu was arrested on the spot, with no possibility of rebuttal.

When Su Cha heard the full report, he snorted and said with an angry tone: “Why did Wangfei go to the palace?” Didn’t they tell her just to close the Xiao Wangfu’s gate?

“The matter of entering the palace is not Wangfei’s doing. Su Gongzi, please don’t blame Wangfei. Wangfei is also a victim.” Housekeeper Cao said the truth, but Su Cha was still dissatisfied: “If she doesn’t want to enter the palace there are many ways she to refuse. She could pretend to be sick.”

Housekeeper Cao acted like he didn’t hear Su Cha’s words, he said: “Su Gongzi, Wangfei and Meng Family’s agreed date of treatment is tomorrow. How could we possibly say Wangfei is sick? Also, if Wangfei said she is sick, what will we do if the empress sent an imperial doctor to check her condition? Su Gongzi, you know that, as long as the emperor or the empress summon people in the palace, even Wangye couldn’t refuse, so how do you think Wangfei will refuse?”

It’s only easy for Su Cha to speak, but there are things that can’t easily be taken for granted. In this era were imperial power reign. Although Lin Chujiu stood taller than most ordinary people, she was not standing on the peak. She doesn’t actually have a beautiful life or freedom that outsider people could see.
