Chapter 341 - 341: Dealing With The Crown Prince
The Crown Prince stepped back and allowed the Second Prince to enter, but he didn't realize that he had allowed Long Chen to enter as well.
He wasn't able to see Long Chen as he was under the illusion that Long Chen wasn't there.
"Say what you wanted to say," The Crown Prince asked as he locked the door.
"Well, ah. Let's sit down first. This might take some time," The Second Prince said as he pointed towards the chairs that were present inside the hall.
"Alright," The Crown Prince said.
He walked to the chair and sat on it. The Second Prince sat on the chair in front of him.
"Tell me what you wanted to say now," The Crown Prince asked again.
"Well, I just want to..." The Second Prince was wondering as to what he could say when he heard a whisper in his ears. It was Long Chen that was speaking.
Long Chen told the Second Prince what to say.
"Well, brother. The thing is that I'm about to die," The Second Prince said.
"What the heck are you talking about? Do you want to kill yourself?" The Crown Prince asked with a frown.
"No. I don't want to kill myself. I want to live brother, but I won't be able to live if you don't let me take the Heavenly Ruler," The Second Prince said as tears appeared in his eyes.
"Tell me straight away. Don't speak nonsense," The Crown Prince didn't look like he was the least bit affected by the tears of the Second Prince.
"There's a poisonous insect inside my heart. Someone placed it there to force me to get the Heavenly Ruler for them. If I don't get the Heavenly Ruler, I would be killed by that insect. Please, Brother. Let me take the Heavenly Ruler peacefully. It's better for everyone," The Second Prince said.
'He'll die? That might even be better,' The Crown Prince thought, but he didn't let his thoughts show on his face.
"Are you threatening me? Why should I care if you were to die? I'm not letting you take anything from inside that place. Stand up.I'm taking you back to the cell," The Crown Prince said as he stood up.
"Oh well, I tried the peaceful path," A voice appeared from nearby that shocked the Crown Prince.
Before he could speak anything, he felt a sharp pain course through his body. He looked down and realized that his right hand was lying on the ground. It had been cut off.
Just as he was about to scream, his other hand was cut off as well. He couldn't help but fall down to the ground as he screamed loudly.
Long Chen didn't care for his screaming either as he had already found out from the Second Prince that the room of the Crown Prince was soundproof. No amount of sound would be able to leave this room.
Long Chen's Illusion stopped automatically. It had been a long time since he had been using it.
He had almost reached his limit, but he didn't care at the moment. He had already made the Crown Prince incapable to do anything.
He wouldn't be worried even if the Crown Prince was able to use his hands as he was confident in his strength, but he still chose the easy route.
"W-who are you?" The Crown Prince shrieked as he glared at Long Chen.
"I'm just someone that really wants the Heavenly Ruler. You should've heard your brother's suggestion," Long Chen said smilingly.
He stepped towards the man with his Qi Sword.
"Stop! You can get the Heavenly Ruler. There's no need to kill my brother! Please leave him alive," the Second Prince called out from behind in an effort to stop Long Chen.
Long Chen looked back for an instant.
"Why would I do that? I cut his hands off. Our enmity is already established. Why should I leave him alive now? So that he could plan revenge? I'm not afraid, but I don't want insects coming after me," He said as he kicked the Crown Prince.
The Crown Prince flew off and crashed on the wall.
He coughed out a mouthful of blood as he glared at Long Chen. He opened his mouth to speak.
Before he could even finish his sentence, a sword came and penetrated his heart. Just to be sure, Long Chen swung his sword once more and sliced the head off the body.
The Second Prince was standing behind with a horrified look on his face as he watched the Crown Prince being killed brutally.
For a moment, he couldn't even believe his eyes.
"Which hand?" He heard a voice that brought him out of his daze.
"Huh?" He let out with a confused look on his face.
"Which of his hands open the door of the Treasury?" Long Chen repeated the question.
"Right hand," The Second Prince let out with a blank look on his face.
"Good. Wait here, I'll be right back," Long Chen said as he picked the right hand of the Crown Prince and placed that in his storage ring.
He walked towards the bedroom of the Crown Prince and started looking in his wardrobe. He chose some of the clothes that he liked and wore them.
He was wearing the clothes of the Crown Prince as he brought something out of his storage ring.
It looked like a mask that he placed on his face.
It was the item that Long Chen had found when he killed his cousin Long Su at the beginning of his journey in this strange new world.
Long Chen placed the mask on his face and changed his looks. He now looked exactly like the Crown Prince.
No one could spot the difference between their faces. Only the body build had a slight difference, but it was so minor that no one would even notice it.
Long Chen looked at himself in the mirror and adjusted the clothes properly before he left the room.
The Second Prince was still standing there, looking at the body of his brother. He was feeling sad that his brother had died, but he cared more for his life at the moment.
He couldn't blame himself either as he had told his brother the truth. If his brother had believed in his words and gave him the Heavenly Ruler, he would have been alive.
"Let's go. Take me to the treasury," Long Chen came out of the room and said to the Second Prince.
The Second Prince turned back and his eyes opened wide in shock as he saw Long Chen.
"Brother? How are you alive?" He exclaimed in shock as he took a step back.
"I'm not your brother, you idiot. Stop wasting time and take me to the treasury. I only have this night to take care of things," Long Chen said in an annoyed tone.
"Ah, It's you?" The Second Prince let out loud.
He had so many questions in his mind, but he didn't dare to ask. He could already feel that Long Chen was getting annoyed because of the delay.
He hurriedly walked towards the door and left the room. Long Chen followed after him.
Long Chen and the Second Prince Rui Yu walked through the hallways of the palace. So many guards and maids saw them, but no one found anything strange. They all felt like it was the Crown Prince and the Second Prince walking together.
They all assumed that the Second Prince was forgiven for whatever he had done. The Crown Prince didn't look angry from the Second Prince anymore.
In less than 10 minutes, they got to the treasury. Since the King was so confident in his treasury and its safety, he didn't place any guards here.
