"Haha, it's me." Xiang Nan hugged his shoulders and smiled faintly.
The First Prince secretly sighed. The matter had already reached this stage, and if he wanted to hide it, he could no longer hide it.
"This is His Highness the Ninth Princess from the The Haotian Empire . The rest are the royal guards who escort the Ninth Princess," the First Prince said with a smile.
"Oh? From the The Haotian Empire ?" Xuan Qingzhu looked up and down at the Ninth Princess.
The Ninth Princess was not willing to be outdone. She likewise raised her chin and looked at Xuan Qingzhu arrogantly. However, in comparison, the Ninth Princess herself felt a little ashamed.
Whether it was his height, cultivation, appearance, or even his figure, he was inferior to Xuan Qingzhu.
Not even in terms of age, Xuan Qingzhu was now in his thirties, less than forty years old.
However, a martial artist's youth far surpassed that of an ordinary person. A female martial artist in her thirties was like a beautiful flower that bloomed completely. She was at the peak of her youth, just like a mortal woman's eighteen years of age.
The Ninth Princess, on the other hand, was a budding flower bud that had yet to bloom.
Xuan Qingzhu smiled and asked, "I wonder why the Ninth Princess came to our The Nine Firmaments Empire ."
"Is there a need to report this to you?" The Ninth Princess was unhappy in her heart, so she stared back at him blankly.
Xuan Qingzhu smiled faintly and said, "Earlier, the The Nine Firmaments Continent had many countries opposing each other. Our The Profound Sky Sect helped the previous emperor fight in all directions. For the sake of the reunification of the The Nine Firmaments Continent , it can be said that we have made great contributions."
"When the previous emperor was about to die, he personally swore an oath that our The Profound Sky Sect can assist and supervise the government when necessary."
What those words meant was that if the descendants of the Emperor and Prince were not worthwhile, the The Profound Sky Sect could directly supervise them and let them return to the path of righteousness.
This right was as great as the heavens!
However, the current The Profound Sky Sect had wasted the trust that the previous emperor had placed in them.
The Ninth Princess looked at the First Prince in disbelief. The First Prince could only nod his head and say, "There really is something going on."
Xuan Qingzhu's eyes were sharp. She immediately saw the Thirteenth Prince's deformed right hand. She smiled slightly and said, "I wonder where the injury on the Thirteenth Prince's hand came from."
The First Prince thought that something was wrong, so he immediately wanted to speak up for the Ninth Princess and said, "Oh, it was when they were playing …"
"I did it." The Ninth Princess's stubbornness rose, and she directly admitted it on the spot.
Upon hearing this, the First Prince and Xiang Nan were all shocked.
Xiang Nan was so angry! Just now, the Ninth Princess was clearly fine and maintained the demeanor of the royal family. However, ever since she saw the Thirteenth Prince, her temper had become uncontrollable, and she immediately revealed her true colors.
When Xuan Qingzhu got the answer she wanted, she smiled and nodded. " First Prince , I have something to say. I don't know if I should say it or not."
She was worried that the First Prince would suddenly interrupt, so she asked such a question that the First Prince would not be able to speak.
The First Prince smiled and said, "Elder Greenbamboo is angry. There's no harm in saying something."
Xuan Qingzhu nodded and said, "It is not easy for us to unify the nine heavens. We have always been very cautious in our diplomacy."
"First, the Haotian Imperial Clan injured the thirteenth prince as soon as they arrived. That clearly does not place our Haotian Imperial Clan in their eyes."
"Second, this is Haotian's first time here. He actually sent a princess instead of a prince. Doing so would be disrespectful."
"Third, when I was outside, I saw Haotian's gift. If I'm not mistaken, there are a hundred truckloads of jewelry, medicinal ingredients, and so on."
"To a The Haotian Empire with a strong economy, this little thing is too stingy."
Actually, Xiang Nan and the others did not bring so many gifts. They were used to conceal their identities. These gifts were forcibly given by black and white figures on the road, and it was only then that they accumulated so many gifts.
This marriage was originally a secret between the two countries. The more things they brought, the more burdensome it would be. The The Nine Firmaments Empire did not care about these things, but now, it had become the cause of Xuan Qingzhu's troubles with the Ninth Princess.
"To sum up, it's just three words." Xuan Qingzhu smiled and said, "Not sincere."
"Ah, Elder Qingzhu, you can't say that. This time …" The First Prince was just about to say something.
Xuan Qingzhu smiled and interrupted, "Big Prince, with all due respect, I believe that the The Haotian Empire is clearly provoking us this time."
"Your Highness, if you don't want to provoke us, then you have also come. The things have also been delivered. Please return."
"If you refuse to return, then you are harboring evil intentions."
"What are you talking about?" The Ninth Princess was so angry that her eyes widened.
As for the First Prince , his eyes flashed with killing intent! He was the dignified First Prince , the future successor of Jiuxiao Empire.
Now, he was actually interrupted by Xuan Qingzhu, and he even crossed over to send the Ninth Princess back.
The arrogance of the Heavenly Profound Sect had already reached an alarming level.
The atmosphere in the Golden Hall suddenly stiffened.
"So, the current Nine Firmaments Imperial Clan is actually surnamed Xuan."
At this moment, Xiang Nan suddenly said this.
If the other princes heard what Xiang Nan said, they would definitely be enraged. They might even kill Xiang Nan on the spot, but that First Prince was no ordinary person. He moved his eyes and immediately clenched his fists, giving Xiang Nan a look of approval.
He knew what Xiang Nan wanted to say! This was the most important thing.
"You … what did you say!" Xuan Qingzhu's expression changed slightly as he hurriedly said, "Are you saying this to provoke the relationship between our The Profound Sky Sect and the Nine Firmaments Imperial Clan?"
Xiang Nan glanced at Xuan Qingzhu indifferently, "If not for that, why didn't the First Prince say anything, but you took over the country's government and made a statement yourself?"
Xuan Qingzhu narrowed his eyes and said, "I have already said before that the previous emperor once …"
Xiang Nan shook his head and said, "I know what the previous emperor said. What the previous emperor meant was that if the descendants of the Nine Firmaments Imperial Clan did not become great weapons and abandoned the country's government, the The Profound Sky Sect had the right to interfere directly in the emperor and the prince's affairs, right?"
"Of course." Xuan Qingzhu thought to herself that something was wrong. She felt that Xiang Nan had something to say, but she could not help but reply.
Xiang Nan nodded. He covered his right hand in his heart and knelt down on one knee to the First Prince . "I believe that His Highness the First Prince is a rare candidate for a prince. He works day and night for the country and the people."
"And Elder Azure Bamboo is interfering in the country's affairs now? Could it be that you mean that the First Prince is a person who does not do his job properly and is only greedy for pleasure?"
"You" Xuan Qingzhu's face turned pale. She took two steps back and hurriedly said, "First Prince, I have no intention of doing so."
"En, based on my understanding of Elder Qingzhu, she's not someone who doesn't distinguish between superiority and inferiority, nor between a monarch and a subject." The First Prince smiled faintly, but his heart was incomparably refreshed!
That's how she should be treated!
"Oh right." Xiang Nan patted his forehead and pretended to be puzzled. He asked the First Prince , "If the royal family isn't right, the The Profound Sky Sect can help."
"Then if the sect isn't righteous, who should help?"
The First Prince 's heart burst into laughter. He took a deep look at Xiang Nan, then turned to Xuan Qingzhu and said, "Yes, Elder Qingzhu, if the sect isn't righteous, does our royal family have the right to interfere?"
