The Human Emperor Chapter 309
Chapter 309: Coercion
Chapter 309: Coercion!
That bad premonition had become a reality.
Looking at the deed and the red ink before him, Wang Chong's complexion turned ugly.
Princess Ni Huang was indeed here for the spirit vein.
He knew that the exposure of the spirit vein would surely bring about great trouble, but he didn't think that it would come that quickly.
A princess had actually come before him for the spirit vein.
Even though Wang Chong knew that he was bound for trouble, he didn't expect the other party to be so arrogant. To expect him to hand over the spirit vein freely like that, how could there be something as good as that in the world?
If it was just for private purposes, he wouldn't mind giving the spirit vein away.
However, the spirit vein simply played too crucial a role for him in changing the future. Otherwise, he wouldn't have wasted his resources on it in the first place.
Not to mention, he wouldn't have continued holding onto it despite the danger of being embroiled in the War of the Princes, especially after receiving the letter from Big Uncle Wang Gen.
But from the looks of it, Princess Ni Huang would never leave unless she achieved her aims here. Most probably, the matter here wouldn't be resolved peacefully.
Glancing at the brilliant martial halo beneath Princess Ni Huang's feet, he asked calmly, "May I ask Your Highness a question? Given Your Highness's superior cultivation, what use do you have seeking the spirit vein?"
"Hmph! You need not bother about that. I'll just ask you one simple question: will you hand it over or not?" Princess Ni Huang's eyebrows shot up as she spoke authoritatively.
"Lad, I know that you are the grandson of Duke Jiu, but since Your Highness has already requested it from you, you better obediently hand it over," the austere old nanny who possessed unfathomable cultivation added.
"Indeed. Why bother speaking so much nonsense? Since Your Highness asks you to hand it over, all you have to do is to hand it over."
"I suggest you give in so that you can avoid some unnecessary suffering!"
The two court ladies behind Princess Ni Huang harrumphed impolitely with an attitude of "it is your honor that our princess is interested in your possession".
"Hahaha! Princess Ni Huang, even the His Majesty has to spend his own money to purchase his meal and necessities. Yet, Your Highness actually expects me to give away a spirit vein for free? What if I reject your request?" Wang Chong sneered in anger.
"Hmph, that is not up to you!"
Having expected Wang Chongs rejection of her request, Princess Ni Huang smiled coldly. Sou! With a flash, her figure vanished, and a slim but powerful white hand darted straight for Wang Chong's wrist.
Wang Chong knew that Princess Ni Huang would surely make a move, so he swiftly executed the Phantom Steps. In an instant, three identical Wang Chongs appeared before Princess Ni Huang.
Princess Ni Huang had always been an arrogant person, and she didn't think highly of Wang Chong, either. Thus, she was caught off guard by Wang Chong's maneuver, and her hand grabbed onto thin air.
Princess Ni Huang was taken aback, but she swiftly recovered from her astonishment. Instead of pursuing Wang Chong, she turned around to look at the old nanny beside her with a cold smile.
"Nanny, I was right, am I? This fellow won't pass the spirit vein over to us willingly unless we show him our might."
"Your Highness, don't worry. Leave this lad to me!" A layer of frost cloaked the old nanny's face.
