The grand doors of the hall opened as a silver lion puppet appeared. Qin Yun sat on the lion's back as he looked at Empress Ye and Qin Zhengfeng.
The Queen and Qin Zhengfeng were both dressed in gorgeous clothes as they sat at the head of the hall. They were the first to see Qin Yun appear at the door. They could not help but stand up in surprise.
Qin Yun looked at the people in the hall. There were many people he was familiar with.
Yang Shiyue was wearing a blue dress and looked absolutely beautiful. When she saw Qin Yun, she abruptly stood up. Her pair of beautiful eyes were originally filled with coldness but now, it had turned into an incomparable surprise.
The people sitting at her table were also wearing blue robes. There were both men and women, young and old and they were all people from the Eastern Palace of Blue Spirit Star Palace.
Meng Fei Ling, Xie Wufeng, Huo Zhong and Murong Daren knew that Qin Yun was still alive, so they weren't too surprised.
Du Gui and the others did not know that Qin Yun was still alive. At this moment, they were overjoyed.
After Qin Yun got off the lion's back, Empress Ye and Qin Zhengfeng came flying over.
"Qin Yun, what are you doing here?" The Queen's eyes were cold as she shouted.
Qin Yun said with a smile, "A year ago, you asked me to come. Have you forgotten? This engagement party is too boring without me! Leaving aside the fact that Xiao Yuelan and I have an engagement, just teh fact that I am the Fifth Prince of Tianqin is enough to qualify my presence!"
Qin Zhengfeng was dressed in a golden dragon robe and had a cold expression. When he saw that Qin Yun was still alive, he could not help but feel infuriated. The current situation was extremely complicated.
"Qin Yun, come attend the betrothal ceremony and don't cause any trouble!" Qin Zhengfeng's tone was filled with threat, as though he could crush Qin Yun to death at any moment.
"Looking at your clothes, are you the emperor?" Qin Yun smiled.
"Soon!" Qin Zheng Feng said coldly.
The Queen stared coldly at Qin Yun and said coldly, "Quickly take your seat!"
After all, in front of so many people, it would appear as though they were petty if they did not let Qin Yun in.
Qin Yun kept the dazzling silver lion beside him. With a calm smile, he slowly walked to Du Gui's table and sat down with Xie Wufeng and company.
There was also Zhuo Chuan at this table.
Duke Yan, who was sitting in front, said loudly, "Qin Yun was sent into the forbidden ground. As for the forbidden zone, it was destroyed by a meteorite the day after. I wonder how he managed to survive? Furthermore, he and the Soul Refining Demon have been inside there for a while, so he might learn the soul refining technique."
Zhuo Chuan smiled and said, "Duke Yan, after the engagement is over, we can talk about this matter later. This is our main business today!"
Everyone looked at Qin Yun as they were alarmed. The vast majority of them felt that Qin Yun might have grasped a soul refining art. To them, it was an extremely terrifying demonic art!
Qi Yu gritted his teeth as he looked at Qin Yun. Only the core members of the Empire of Tianqi knew the truth about the soul fiend.
They also knew that Qiao Ruiwen was an old woman who treated people very well. Therefore, they were certain that Qin Yun had obtained the Soul Refining Art from Qiao Ruiwen!
Qin Yun looked at the table in front of him. The people from the Tian Xiao Empire were sitting there. Xiao Yanglong and the emperor were there.
When he looked over, Xiao Yuelan also looked over.
Xiao Yuelan had a ponytail and wore a blue tight suit. Her outfit was crisp and simple, giving off a valiant feeling. Her expression was ice-cold. A trace of stubbornness could be seen in her ice-cold eyes, giving her a heroic air.
When Xiao Yanglong discovered that she was looking at Qin Yun, he gave her a meaningful glance, causing her to lower her head slightly.
Qin Yun no longer looked at Xiao Yuelan and instead looked at Yang Shiyue at the other table. He even stuck out his tongue at her, causing her to reveal a faint but beautiful smile. It had to be known that ever since she went to Blue Spirit Star Palace, she rarely smiled. However, when she saw Qin Yun, she smiled.
When Xiao Yanglong saw Qin Yun and Yang Shiyue glancing at each other, he could not help but feel infuriated. He grabbed the tablecloth tightly and glared viciously at Yang Shiyue.
Yang Shiyue pretended not to see Xiao Yanglong and looked at Qin Yun.
This made Xiao Yanglong even more infuriated. If it were not for this situation, he would definitely have flared up because Qin Yun, a teenage kid, had openly seduced his fiancee.
Now, with so many people paying attention to Qin Yun, they all saw the flirtatious looks between him and Yang Shiyue and secretly admired him. He was actually able to make an ice-cold beauty like Yang Shiyue laugh and in front of Xiao Yanglong!
Du Gui coughed dryly and said, "Brat, today's engagement is not as simple as you think!"
Qin Yun retracted his gaze and gave Yang Shiyue a glance before looking at Du Gui. He asked, "What do you mean?"
Murong Daren replied, "Because Qi Yu also wants to marry Xiao Yue Lan...Other than Qi Yu, there is also the grandson of northen Palace Master of blue spirit palace. The youngest son of Palace Master of south palace and the grandson of the Great Elder of the West Palace!"
Qi Yu and the influential disciples of the Blue Spirit Palace actually wanted to marry Xiao Yuelan. When the time came, they would certainly come up with generous conditions!
Qin Yun finally understood why Qin Zhengfeng and the Empress had ugly expressions when he first entered. They did not seem to have expected such a thing to happen.
"Strange, why hasn't the Empress Tian Xiao appeared? Because she's so ugly, you won't let her come?" Murong Daren said with a low smile.
Zhuo Chuan frowned and said: "Ye Chang Chao also did not appear. Empress Ye's father, the head of the Ye Family and he is the most powerful and the most influential person in the Tian Qin Imperial Palace!"
The two fellows had been killed by Qin Yun, so they would not come.
The empress and Qin Zheng Feng's moods were heavy because Ye Chang Chao hadn't appeared, as well as Xiao YueMei's disappearance.
Hou Xingfeng chuckled, "Things are getting more and more interesting!"
"Brother Yun, do you have any plans?" Xie Wufeng asked.
Qin Yun picked up a pair of chopsticks and picked up a piece of meat. He said, "Not at the moment. Let's wait and see first."
This was also his previous plan.
In short, he would do his best to help Xiao Yuelan out of her predicament, mainly to repay her for giving him the Profound Heart Grass.
The Duke of Yan walked to a higher ground and said in a clear voice, "Everyone knows that. As Qin Yun's reputation is ruined, his position of crown prince has been abolished. It has a terrible impact on the Tian Qin Empire. When he was young, his engagement to the Princess of Yue Lan had caused her reputation to be tarnished. She had been ridiculed by others and the prestige of the Tian Xiao Empire had been affected as well. "
"Today, after some discussion, the Tian Xiao Empire decided to marry Princess Yue Lan to the crown prince of Tianqin, our Emperor who is about to ascend to the throne. Everyone knows this."
"Now, we would like to invite distinguished guests to witness the betrothal ceremony between Princess Yue Lan and Prince Tianqin!"
"I invite Princess Yue Lan to come up and complete the engagement ceremony!"
Xiao Yuelan stood up and saw that Qin Zhengfeng was about to speak. She said coldly, "My engagement to Qin Yun is first. Furthermore, we have an engagement contract with the Emperor of our two empire's blood on it! I believe everyone should know what this means!"
The main hall burst into an uproar!
Everyone had thought that the engagement that year was just a verbal statement. Who would've thought that they would sign a blood contract!?
Blood Seal, that was the most sacred of contracts. If someone did not fulfill their promise, that meant that the person would not only be dishonest but would also be recorded in the annals of history.
Moreover, this was the mark of the monarch. If it was recorded in history, the reputation of the entire empire would be affected.
Everyone turned to look at Emperor Tian Xiao, Xiao Rong Chen.
He was tall and thin, with wrinkles at the corners of his eyes. He had a moustache on his face and his eyebrows were slender like a sword. He looked a bit scholarly, without the imposing aura of an emperor.
His eyes were blurry and his spirit was not very good. He nodded and said, "It is indeed so. Back then, I used my own blood to burn the blood mark and sign the contract!"
Like Qin Long, this Xiao Rong Chen didn't call himself Zhen.
When the crowd heard his words, they were shocked once again.
"Royal father... This is a very important matter, why didn't you say so at the time?" Xiao Yanglong's face was anxious and his voice full of reproach.
"I forgot!" Xiao Rongchen's words caused everyone to be at a loss whether to laugh or cry.
Now, everyone was sure that the rumor that the Emperor Tian Xiao was not in a good mental state was true.
The Duke of Yan hastily said, "I had long heard that because of a cultivation error that harmed the Emperor Xiao's mind and soul, his memories are in chaos. We need to see the engagement contract before we can be sure that it's true. This must have happened at least ten years ago!"
"This is something that the late emperor and the former empress did. The contract must be in their hands but they did not mention it to us, nor did they hand it over to us ministers. I don't think this is necessarily the case."
"Princess Yue Lan, did you remember wrongly? This should be what your mother did, even you may not be sure if it's true!"
Xiao Yanglong promptly replied: "That should be the case! Yue Lan, I know you are dissatisfied with Yue Mei's matter but don't mess around with her over such a big matter!"
Qin Yun glanced at Du Gui and he nodded. In other words, Emperor Tian Xiao was at the mercy of someone else. If not, the person who spoke would not be Xiao Yanglong.
Xiao Yuelan looked at Qin Yun and shouted, "Qin Yun, is the contract of engagement in your hands?"
Qin Yun was eating his food as he answered, "Yes!"
When everyone saw his current appearance, they all frowned and shook their heads. They all felt that it was a wise decision for the Tian Xiao Empire to remarry Xiao Yuelan to Qin Zhengfeng.
"Hurry up and take it out!" Xiao Yuelan shouted anxiously as she watched with a frown. Qin Yun was still eating and drinking even at this critical juncture.
Qin Yun wiped the oil off his mouth and took out a yellowed piece of paper. There were indeed two large seals on it that were exuding a golden red glow.
"It is indeed the Emperor Blood Seal of the Tian Xiao Empire and the Tian Qin Empire. It is the same as the one signed by our Divine Inscription Palace!" Zhuo Chuan said, "Among them, the Tian Xiao Blood Seal's glow is the brightest, meaning that the Tian Xiao Emperor is nearby."
Zhuo Chuan was the Grand Elder of the Divine Inscription palace. He had his own blood seal in every country, so he had to sign a series of blood seals with the emperors of the countries.
When Xiao Yanglong, Duke of Yan, the Empress and Qin Zheng Feng saw the contract, they couldn't help but gnash their teeth.
The other people who wanted to marry Xiao Yuelan and the forces backing them also felt that this was incomparably troublesome.
It was because this sacred contract could not be broken. If they were to force others to break the contract, they would also have to bear the brunt of their infamy.
At the very least, she didn't need to marry Qin Zhengfeng.
Qin Zhengfeng was so angry that he clenched his fists.
Just then, an elder from the Western Palace spoke out: "As long as you burn the contract letter, the contract will be void! Qin Yun, your inner yuan has been shattered and you lack spirit veins. Although you possess a few high-grade spirit marks, they are insufficient to improve your miserable state. Why don't you sell the contract to me?"
