It turned out that he had gotten someone to take the pulses of those women who had not acted up. A moment ago, their pulses were no different from that of ordinary people, but the next moment, they suddenly acted up. When he went to take their pulses again, they were clearly poisoned.
The emperor asked, “What poison?”
“I’ve only heard of it a little and don’t know its name, but…” The imperial physician wiped his sweat.” However, the poison I know has only appeared in the previous dynasty. I can’t confirm if it’s the same kind. ‘
Song Jingchen raised his eyebrows. He didn’t collude with the imperial physician.
However, the Valley of Heavenly Secrets was so active in the previous dynasty, so it was not surprising that information about the Heart Devouring Poison would spread.
The emperor asked repeatedly if there was a way to detoxify the poison. The imperial physicians said that the poison was too strange. This was the first time they had seen it, so they needed to study it for a period of time.
However, those women might not be able to last until then.
This time, even if the emperor didn’t believe Song Jingchen initially, he had to now.
He waved his hand to dismiss them.
Song Jingchen glanced at Lord Cai and reminded him, “Those women are all innocent. Don’t let them commit suicide. If you really have no choice, knock them out first.
Lord Cai was stunned for a moment and looked carefully at the emperor. After receiving a nod from the latter, he thanked him and left with the imperial physician.
The emperor’s face was as black as ink. When he was imprisoned, that unfilial son had fed him so much unknown medicine. What if he was poisoned too?
The more he thought about it, the more afraid the emperor became. He even inexplicably felt that something was wrong.
He took a deep breath and said righteously, “Minister Song, go and ask that unfilial son to hand over the antidote. We can’t let innocent people die. Also, you have to find out where this poison came from and if there are really any survivors of the previous dynasty.”
Song Jingchen sneered in his heart. “I obey.”
After Song Jingchen left, the emperor remembered why he had summoned him to the palace. However, when he thought of the possible remnants of the previous dynasty, he was glad that he had been polite first and didn’t try to promote him in public while threatening him in private.
After coming out of the palace, Song Jingchen took the token given by the emperor and went to the prison of the Clan Residence.
It was unknown if it was intentional, but the cell where Shangguan Pu was imprisoned was the same one that the old prince had used previously.
However, after the old prince went crazy in the Hidden Spirit Temple and was brought away by Shangguan Pu, he was ignored by everyone.
It was unknown if the emperor had forgotten, but he had never asked about it after returning to the palace.
In the dark dungeon, Shangguan Pu was disheveled and dirty. He was leaning against the corner of the wall covered in blood. It was obvious that he had been tortured.
Song Jingchen gestured for the prison guard to open the cell door. The prison guard hesitated for a moment, but in the end, he took out the key from his waist.
The cell door opened and closed, but Shangguan Pu didn’t even look up. There was no need to interrogate him at all. The reason why the emperor did not directly sentence him to death was because he had not vented enough.
Song Jingchen walked up to him and looked down at him for a long time. He said calmly, “You’re indignant, right?”
He had carefully planned for five years and failed without causing much trouble. Anyone would be indignant.
Shangguan Pu’s originally dead eyes turned sharp, and he suddenly sneered. He looked up at Song Jingchen mockingly. “What right do you have to laugh at me? Or are you so naive that you think you’re really trusted by that person?”
“I think you haven’t forgotten the tragic state of the Song family two years ago. Just wait, you’ll be next.”
Song Jingchen flicked the nonexistent dust off his robe and shook his head.
‘You donlt even know where you failed. You’re so pitiful.”
Shangguan Pu’s laughter stopped abruptly as he stared at Song Jingchen resentfully.
‘You don’t think it’s because of me, do you?” Song Jingchen asked.
Shangguan Pu was slightly stunned. Clearly, Song Jingchen hit the nail on the head.
Song Jingchen chuckled. “Then you think too highly of me.”
“What do you mean?” Shangguan Pu asked.
“It means exactly what it means. Your end was already decided. You wouldn’t have succeeded even without me.”
Shangguan Pu looked at him for a long time and sneered again. “I didn’t know that Prince Song had the ability to read people’s faces.”
“I don’t know how to do that, but there are indeed people in this world who know how to do it,” Song Jingchen said seriously.
“What exactly do you mean?”
Song Jingchen stopped trying to leave someone hanging. “Your Highness, have you heard of the Valley of Heavenly Secrets?”
Although he tried to provoke Song Jingchen before, Shangguan Pu knew that he wasn’t the kind of person who would kick someone when they were down, so he really thought about it seriously.
