Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 418
A few secret sentries on the river bank immediately flew forward and restrained Xi Xingjiang down. Seeing that he was still trying to struggle, Xi Xun strode over and grabbed the sword in the struggling man’s hand with two moves. He angrily rebuked the young Xinjiang, “Nonsense!”
Xi Xingjiang’s gaze crackled with hatred, and his eyes were blood red. He roared, “I’m going to kill him!!!”
Xi Xun’s face was dark and angry, “Take him away and keep an eye on him!”
Xi Xingjiang gritted his teeth tightly. His eyes were so red that they were almost bleeding, but he couldn’t say a word after seeing his father’s heavy expression.
After resolving the small ruckus on his side, Xi Xun took a deep breath and looked at the young man on the boat again. How could the Emperor of an empire make a joke like this— he waved the blue flag to demand negotiations and even boarded a boat alone toward enemy territory. Emperor Song’s acts would be too ridiculous if he made so many preparations just to joke around.
Xi Xun was already wondering why the Song army wasn’t advancing despite their advantage, but now, he gradually figured out the Song Empire army’s real intention.
He was lost in thought for a while before he ordered, “Get me a boat, I want to get on it and have a detailed talk with him.”
The Deputy General was worried, “General, this might be a trap.”
Xi Xun said in a deep voice, “He’s not afraid, so why should I be afraid?”
Soon, a soldier roved over in a small boat, and Xi Xun boarded the boat alone. When the General got close to the boat in the middle of the river, he flew onto the other boat in a flash.
It was also the first time for him to see the Song Emperor, who was said to be more ferocious than a wolf, so he couldn’t help but be as surprised just like how Prince Yong was when he met the Song Emperor for the first time. The only difference he had with the Yong Kingdom’s Prince was that he didn’t show it on his face as he still wore a majestic look. He then asked in a deep voice, “This General heard that Emperor Song has signed an alliance with the Yong Kingdom, so what do you mean by today’s words?”
Song Jinglan smiled and moved his hand backward. The guards who were waiting in a separate boat behind him placed an Imperial decree into his hands.
He handed the Imperial decree to Xi Xun and said with a smile, “This is a covenant that I wrote, conveying my intentions to nurture a good relationship with the Great Lin Empire. As long as I am the one reigning in my land, the Song Empire and the Great Lin Empire shall be friendly to each other. We are to defend against foreign forces together, but never draw swords against one another.”
Xi Xun’s pupils dilated slightly as he reached for the covenant to read through the document. Sure enough, he clearly wrote all the proposals and stipulations on it, and the Emperor himself stamped the jade seal of the Song Empire next to it.
Xi Xun had been in and out of the battlefield for a long time and had seen a lot, so at this moment, he still couldn’t help but feel shocked in his heart. He slowly rolled up the Imperial decree, and gave an intense look at the young Emperor in front of him before saying, “General Xi will report this matter to His Majesty.”
Song Jinglan smiled slightly, “I will await for good news.”
Xi Xun cupped his fists slightly before he turned around and flew off the boat.
