When the door suddenly closed, Zhong Li Shi had a dangerous light in his eyes and looked at the shopkeeper without making a sound.
At this time, the shopkeeper was still trembling with calculation.
“Why did you close the door?” Zhong Li Xi reacted with confusion and asked, “Is it closing time?”
It was only at this moment that Zhong Li Xi realized that there was no one else in the store, except for the three of them.
Zhong Li Xi put the things on the shelf, came to Su Mo Li’s side, and forced a smile: “Li’er, since the store is closing, let’s go first.”
Su Mo Li coughed loudly: “Well, I’m not feeling well. Let’s go back first, Crown Prince, can we?”
The soft and delicate voice was particularly beautiful.
Zhong Li Shi raised his eyebrows: “Then, let’s go back to the Palace first.” He said and went to open the door.
In the next second, a man in black rushed straight over, stabbing Zhong Li Shi with a knife in his hand!
“Big Brother, beware!” Zhong Li Xi quickly screamed.
Su Mo Li dragged Zhong Li Xi to a corner and watched several black-clothed people rushing over, her expression unchanged: “Princess, let’s not go over there.
We don’t know martial arts; we’ll only be slowing things down.”
On hearing this, Zhong Li Xi reacted and nodded: “Li’er, don’t be afraid. I will protect you.”
Looking at Su Mo Li’s pale face, Zhong Li Xi’s voice trembled.
Su Mo Li smiled gently, “I’m not afraid, the Crown Prince is brave and invincible; he will definitely take us away safely.”
Zhong Li Xi bit her lips and nodded vigorously, looking at the silhouette of the person fighting in the middle, her heart lifted up sharply.
Zhong Li Shi was only one person, but he was up against five men in black!
As for the shopkeeper and Xiao Er, they had already squatted in the corner, not daring to make the slightest sound.
Zhong Li Xi screamed as she saw the knife in the black-clothed man’s hand slash at Zhong Li Shi.
A vase hit the man in black directly on the head, and the man in black was dazed. The knife in his hand was also kicked to the ground by Zhong Li Shi.
Zhong Li Shi looked at Su Mo Li and saw that she was dumbfounded as if wondering why she had thrown it so accurately.
“Thank you, Li’er!” Zhong Li Xi hugged Zhong Li Shi, “If it weren’t for you, my brother would have been hurt!”
Zhong Li Shi was directly kicked to the ground.
Su Mo Li looked at the excited Zhong Li Xi and whispered, “The Crown Prince has been caught.”
Zhong Li Xi turned back abruptly and saw Zhong Li Shi covering his arm, his face heavy with concentration.
After the man in black found Zhong Li Shi had difficulty moving, he looked at Su Li and Zhong Li Xi and said, “Capture them!”
Zhong Li Xi sucked in a breath; she pulled Su Mo Li to run.
But Su Mo Li held Zhong Li Xi tightly in her hands: “Let’s throw a vase at them.” Said Su Mo Li, holding a vase directly at a man in black.
With that, she took the vase and smashed it directly at a man in black!
When Zhong Li Xi saw this, she also quickly picked up the vase and threw it over. However, her vase fell halfway down.
Zhong Li Xi was appalled and looked at Su Mo Li: “I saw that you threw it quite simply, but I didn’t expect ……”
“I got lucky,” Su Mo Li whispered.
Then, she held another vase and threw it, but the bottle fell halfway down.
Zhong Li Xi nodded, “You’re luckier than me.”
With Su Mo Li and Zhong Li Xi distracting two black-clothed men, Zhong Li Shi’s side was a lot easier.
But throwing the vase obviously could only stop them for a moment, and the two black-clothed men rushed straight over.
“Brother, help!” Zhong Li Xi cried out in fear and closed her eyes hard.
Su Mo Li quickly stood in front of Zhong Li Xi and smiled faintly at the two black-clothed men. They were momentarily a little blurry-eyed, but because of the fierce fight around them, they didn’t think too much about it.
The two men in black fell to the ground in the next second, vomited blood, and died.
Su Mo Li looked at the people who came in through the window next to her and used her eyes to hint to them that it was too bloody.
One of them quickly came to Su Mo Li’s side: “Miss, are you dizzy?”
Su Mo Li thought, “Dizzy.”
So, Su Mo Li screamed and fell over towards Zhong Li Xi.
Zhong Li Xi caught Su Mo Li with her body: “Li’er! Li’er!”
Zhong Li Xi was so anxious that she looked at the center area and was relieved to find that a few people in white clothes and masked faces who came from behind were actually helping them.
Zhong Li Shi’s pupils shrank, and he quickly backed up, coming to Su Mo Li’s side: “Xi’er, let’s go!”
Saying that he directly picked up Su Mo Li, and the three of them quickly opened the door and rushed out.
The men in black wanted to go after them, but they were stopped by the men in white.
“Don’t go, brothers, let’s play again!”
After Zhong Li Shi carried Su Mo Li to the carriage, Su Mo Li slowly woke up.
“Li’er, how are you?”
Zhong Li Xi even asked, her eyes full of worry.
Su Mo Li shook her head, “I’m fine, just scared.”
Saying that, she sat up, stretched out her hand to pat her chest, her face was horrified, “Are we out?”
Zhong Li Xi nodded: “Yes, we got out. Just now, a group of people came out of nowhere and entangled the black-clothed people. We were saved.”
Upon hearing that, Su Mo Li was relieved and was just about to open her mouth when she coughed.
“Drink some water.” Zhong Li Xi even poured her a cup of water.
After Su Mo Li took a sip, she leaned against the carriage wall and whispered, “Crown Prince, who are these people in black?”
Zhong Li Shi didn’t reply, and after lifting the curtain, he looked at the two of them: “I’ll send you back first, don’t talk about today’s matter with anyone. I’ll handle it.”
Zhong Li Xi’s face was a little worried.
Su Mo Li responded: “Crown Prince should hurry up and treat his wound.”
“Okay. I’ve frightened Miss Su today.” Zhong Li Shi said after staring at Su Mo Li for half a moment, “Miss Su’s luck is good.”
Zhong Li Xi’s eyes lit up, “Did you see it too, Big Brother? I also think Li’er is really lucky! If it weren’t for Li’er, we would have been injured by the men in black!”
Su Mo Li: ……
“Lucky, indeed.” Zhong Li Shi looked at Su Mo Li with a strange smirk.
Su Mo Li raised her head and looked into Zhong Li Shi’s eyes. Her heart thudded, but her face showed no emotion, and she said softly, “Thank you, Crown Prince.
Soon, they arrived at the Prime Minister’s Residence. Su Mo Li got off the carriage and watched the carriage leave before she was relieved and returned to Cui Zhu Courtyard.
“Assassination?” Cheng Tao’s face was pale, and she quickly asked.
After Su Mo Li had something to eat, she waited until it was dark, and Cheng Tao came back: “The Emperor has learned about the Crown Prince’s injury, and sent Jin Zhao Yin to investigate today’s assassination.
The five people in the Huang Fang’s group did not die, but one was injured.
Huang Fang has gone to investigate and will have the results soon.
Fortunately, Huang Fang’s men were outside the store. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to see Miss’s signal.” Cheng Tao said fearfully, “Fortunately, there was no blood.”
Su Mo Li raised her eyebrows, “Are you afraid that I would be bullied?”
“That’s not true.” Cheng Tao walked over to Su Mo Li and squeezed her shoulder, “I’m afraid of the blood spilling in the capital.”
Su Mo Li’s mouth twitched, “I’m going out.”
With that, Su Mo Li changed into her nightclothes and quickly left.
“Cheng Tao, why didn’t you stop Miss?” Huang Fan hurriedly came over, her face full of anxiety, “Miss has just been bullied by those black-clothed people today. If she finds the person behind this, I’m afraid she won’t be able to endure.”
“If I could have stopped her, I would have stopped her long ago.” Cheng Tao sighed helplessly, “She shouldn’t be able to find out anything so soon.”
“I hope that Feng He Old Man comes to the capital soon and can help us keep an eye on Miss. And if there are any unsightly people offending Miss like this again, I really can’t do anything about it.”
“In fact, in the end, it’s good to see some blood, but I’m afraid that Miss’s body can’t hold up.”
As if thinking of something, Cheng Tao’s eyebrows tightly wrinkled in worry as she put down the folded clothes in her hands.
Huang Fan pursed her lips, “Then would it be better if a few young masters came to the capital?”
The corner of Cheng Tao’s mouth twitched: “I don’t know if Miss would be well or not, but I know the capital would definitely not be well.”
While Cheng Tao and Huang Fan were chatting, Su Mo Li had arrived on the roof not far from the jewelry store on South Street. She looked at the guards who were packing up the outside of the store, thought about it, then went straight around, and jumped in through the window.
A sword stabbed directly over.
Su Mo Li’s face was full of black lines. She looked at the person in front of her through the moonlight and raised her eyebrows, Zhong Li Shi?
Zhong Li Shi stared at Su Mo Li for half a moment and put away his sword: “Are you the one who saved my life in the first place?”
“You mean the time I carried you to the Palace Gate?”
Su Mo Li lowered her voice and asked with a laughing tone.
Zhong Li coughed twice, a hint of embarrassment flashed in his eyes.
“How did you figure it out?” Su Mo Li was curious.
Zhong Li Shi took out the bottle and pointed to the bottle.
The flowers on it made Su Mo Li suddenly understand. As long as it was something she had, she would paint a 3 left white lotus flower on it. But unlike other white lotus flowers, the white lotus flower she painted faithfully had teal leaves. And the flowers were also painted on her nightclothes.
“I heard that something happened here, I came over to take a look, am I disturbing the Crown Prince?”
Zhong Li Shi narrowed his eyes: “No.”
So, the two of them did not say another word and each searched for what they wanted.
Only when the sky turned white, did Su Mo Li get up. On the dead black-clothed man’s body, she found a bead and threw it directly to Zhong Li Shi: “It’s for you.”
Saying that, she winked at Zhong Li Shi.
What a pretty sight!
When Zhong Li Shi took a look at it, his eyes were cold.
“How are you going to thank me?”
Zhong Li Shi looked up at Su Mo Li, “Do you know what this is?”
“Yes!” Su Mo Li spoke in a cheerful tone, “This bead has a hole in the middle, so you can pass on a message.
Putting the note in the hole, normally no one can find it.”
Zhong Li Shi squeezed the bead tightly, “And where did you learn that?”
“I’m not just anyone!”
Su Mo Li said as she came to Zhong Li Shi’s side, and reached out her hand to pinch Zhong Li Shi’s face: “Don’t worry, we’re not enemies yet, I’ve helped you twice, so you think about how to repay me.”
After saying that, Su Mo Li left.
As he watched Su Mo Li disappear, Zhong Li Shi touched the residual temperature on his cheeks. His beautiful eyebrows furrowed together. The scent of this person just now was somewhat familiar!
