The news of Duke Zhen Guo’s return quickly spread throughout the entire Southwest Prefecture.

Not only Nanli City, but the commanders and noble families of the other cities, even the prefectural shepherd and the prefect cannot sit still.

After all, this is the emperor of the whole southwest!

Taking advantage of the Zhengyuan Festival, they came to Nanli City with gifts.

But without exception, they were all turned away by the Su family.

Su Shi also never showed up again.

Even Jiang Yuan, Cao Jie and others were closed.

Not only that, but also ordered to leave as soon as possible.

It’s not that Su Shi is pretending to be arrogant. Now that the emperor is in Su’s house, aren’t people in the devil’s way looking for death?

Listen to the Moon Tower.

The restaurant is full of silk and bamboo.

This is the best restaurant in Nanli City, and most of the guests who come here are rich or expensive.

At this time, they gathered together in twos and threes and chatted.

“Have you really seen Duke Zhen Guo?”

“I see, Duke Zhenguo is even more handsome than rumored, and his aura is like the sun, making people dare not look directly.

“I didn’t expect that the Su family really came out!”

“At the time when Su Shi went into the devil’s way, I don’t know how many aristocratic families were watching the Su family’s jokes.

“The city owner still has a vision.

“Yeah, apart from the people from the City Lord’s Mansion, Duke Zhenguo has never seen anyone, even the prefectural shepherd has been sullen.”

At this time, a fat man said mysteriously: “I wonder if you have heard about 820. The reason why the Su family closed their doors to thank guests is because they are picking a daughter-in-law!”5

“real or fake?

“Prince Zhen Guo is only in his early twenties? Are you in such a hurry?”

The surrounding people suddenly became interested and gathered around them one after another.

“How can it be fake?”

The fat man shook his head and said: “I have a good brother, who is the head of the family in the Su Mansion. He said that Duke Zhen Guo’s confidantes can’t be counted on one hand, and he is discussing who should be the principal!

“Besides, the higher the cultivation realm, the harder it will be to give birth to offspring.”

“With Duke Zhen’s talent, his growth rate is astonishingly fast, so he naturally has to leave his bloodline descendants ahead of time.”

Everyone nodded.

That makes sense.

“But who can be worthy of the status of Duke Zhen?”

Someone asked.

Fatty shook his head, “I don’t know about others, but there is someone you must know.”


“Could it be that we left from the south?”

“Don’t give a shit, say it quickly.

Under the urging of everyone, the fat man cleared his throat and whispered: “Who else is there except the city lord’s daughter?”

“You mean Xin Ling?”

“Hey, it seems possible!

(bdcj) When Su Shi fell into the devil’s way, all the aristocratic families avoided it, only Xin Ling and the Su family were still very close.

Including many problems encountered later, the City Lord’s Mansion helped solve them.

“It seems that Xin Ling is still very discerning.”

“This is equivalent to buying shares in a business. If people bet right, they will naturally soar into the sky.

“In Xin Ling’s capacity, being the principal room of Duke Zhenguo is still a little tricky, but there is nothing wrong with being a concubine of a side room.

“That’s enough, that’s Duke Zhen!

“Shh, be quiet…

Room on the second floor.

Xin Ling’s pretty face flushed red as she gritted her teeth and said, “Chewing my tongue, let’s see how I teach them a lesson!”

Just get up and go out.

Su Shi stopped her, “It’s just some gossip. It won’t take long for it to dissipate with the wind, but when you show up, you just confirm what they said.”

Xin Ling was ashamed and angry.

What is a business stock, what is a concubine in a side room, it is really getting more and more outrageous!

Su Shi’s mind moved slightly.

The wine jar downstairs burst, and the wine poured several people into chicken soup.

Immediately afterwards, they were grabbed by invisible big hands and threw out directly from the door of the restaurant.

A cold voice sounded in my ears:


The crowd shuddered.

He seemed to have thought of something, his face instantly turned pale, and he ran away.

Su Shi raised his glass and said, “Now that you are clean, drink the bar.


The two clinked glasses and drank it all in one go.

Xin Ling’s face was still blushing, “Su Shi, don’t listen to their nonsense, I…”

“I know. 99

Su Shi smiled and said, “Miss Xin is not an investor, she just wants to help the Su family.

Xin Ling picked up the wine glass and covered her shy expression.

It’s not really that simple…

But after going through the “main room incident” last time, she was really embarrassed to say anything else.

“By the way, when will Uncle go to Weiyang Capital to propose marriage?

Xin Ling asked seemingly unintentionally.

That yellow girl’s aura is too strong.

So much so that she thought that the other party would definitely be the lady of the house.

Su Shi shook his head, “It’s just a talk, I’m a practitioner, so I don’t have to stick to the formalities.

That is the emperor of the dynasty, he can’t really go to the palace to propose marriage, right?

Feng Chaoge just didn’t want him to marry someone else.

I don’t care about the so-called ceremony.

Now it’s the Chen family that makes him embarrassed.

After all, he had promised Chen Wangchuan that he wanted three books and six rites, and the matchmaker was marrying him.

“There’s no way to explain that.

“It can’t be said that His Majesty did not let me marry a wife?”

Su Shi felt troubled in his heart.

Xin Ling seemed to breathe a sigh of relief, “That’s right, practitioners really don’t have to stick to red tape.

“Drink. 35


The two exchanged cups.

Although they haven’t seen each other for a long time, they are not strangers to each other.

Looking at the pretty girl in front of him, Su Shi’s eyes were a little blank.

He really didn’t have much impression of Xin Ling.

I just remember that when he first crossed over, there was a little girl who was his follower.

Because he has the soul of an adult in his body, and his behavior is completely different from other naive children, the little girl admires him very much.

But the time the two really got along was very short.

After the plot started, he followed Yun Qiluo into the Nether Sect.

Since then, they have never been seen again.

Unexpectedly, the other party always remembered this friendship and helped the Su family through difficulties several times.

“Miss Xin, I have a question I want to ask you.”

Su Shi said.

Xin Ling nodded, “You said.”

Su Shi squeezed his chin and said, “The other day you said what did I say to you when I was young… What did I say back then?”

Xin Ling’s eyes were a little erratic, “Forget it if I don’t remember, I just mentioned it casually.

Su Shi pressed, “But I’m really curious.”

Xin Ling hesitated.

Facing Su Shi’s inquiring gaze, she sighed, put down her glass, and said softly, “When you suddenly said you were leaving, bid me farewell in advance.”5

“I asked when you were coming back, and you said maybe never.

“If we meet again, your mission has failed.”

“When the time comes, I will keep my name incognito, take me to find a paradise to live in seclusion, pick chrysanthemums under the eastern fence, and see Nanshan leisurely.

“Because of your words, I persisted for so long.”

Xin Ling looked at Su Shi with tears in her eyes, “I remember every word clearly, why did you forget everything?”
