Huangpu Xuanye regained his freedom and was being protected by Jun Yan. The outcome was decided.
Lan Qiwei could only surrender when she realized she had no other way out.
Helian Qingyu succeeded in apprehending Lan Qiwei.
Huangpu Xuanye rehosted the national assembly as the remaining royal member.
Huangpu Xuanye sat on the throne with his father’s Emperor Badge in his hand.
“I will be taking on the role of the new Northern Kingdom’s emperor,” Huangpu Xuanye announced. “Are there any objections?”
The crowd remained silent until one of the senators congratulated him.
“All hail, the new emperor!”
Everyone followed the senator and congratulated Huangpu Xuanye.
At the age of only 17, Huangpu Xuanye officially took over the throne.
That was his fate and his father’s wish, and he did not disappoint Huangpu Heng’s expectations.
The first thing Huangpu Xuanye did as the emperor was to round up people who sided with Lan Qiwei. They were all thrown into jail.
Lan Qiwei was being locked in the Imperial Prison, and Lan Ling’er was there to visit her.
“Come here. Let me take a good look at you,” Lan Qiwei said while extending her arm outside the bar.
“Mom, how did you become like this?” Lan Ling’er asked, unable to hide her sadness. “You kept your distance from me for what? So that you could obtain power? Is power more important than your own flesh and blood?”
“No! You’re wrong! I wanted to bring you over after I’d taken over the country… I never stopped thinking about you every day.”
“You’re all talk! Do you know that dad is dead now? That Lstan has fallen? Dad deserved it because he has been doing evil’s bidding for his whole life, but why do you have to follow him? You were already the queen of the Northern Kingdom…was that not enough for you? Are you happy now?”
Lan Ling’er hated her parents, as they weren’t like other people who committed themselves to the benefit of society. Instead, they did unforgivable things.
Lan Qiwei could only answer her daughter’s question with tears.
“I know I was wrong… It’s all your aunt’s fault… She was the one who talked me into it…”
“Where is she now?”
“I don’t know. She was here until everything went bad. Right! Could you please tell her to come and save me when you meet her?”
“You still trust her? Do you know that she’s a fugitive now? If I were you, I would’ve talked her into handing herself in, not working with her instead.”
Lan Ling’er took a deep breath, wondering why all of her relatives were criminals.
But it was all too late. Lan Qiwei had already tasted her defeat, and there was only one way out for her.
“Ling’er, I know I was wrong… But you have to get me out of here! You’re the only one I can rely on now!”
