Su Mu had been lying on the bed for several days, but the wound had not healed for some reason, and his face became paler and paler.

Gu Yunzhou stood without expression in front of Su Mu’s bed, but his eyes were apologetic.
Ye Qingfeng watched Su Mu become more and more weak, frowning he said: “You must be poisoned. Have you found any suspicious people?”
Su Mu shook his head slightly. It was not that there were no suspicious people, but all were suspicious people.
Squeezing Su Mu’s thin wrist, watching the Crown Prince who had always been brazen and unbridled lying on the bed in such a weak and dying state, Ye Qingfeng suddenly could not bear it. He comforted: “Xuefeng Villa has stored a kind of miraculous medicine that can cure all kinds of poisons. Rest plenty while I go to fetch it.”
After Ye Qingfeng and Gu Yunzhou left, Su Mu lay on the bed and slowly adjusted his breathing. The poisoner was both vicious and insidious, and Su Mu didn’t even know when he became poisoned.
This kind of poison would not flare up in normal times, even when Su Mu used internal force, there was still no abnormality. Only when Su Mu was angry and in a life and death confrontation with others would the effects of the poison flare up slightly, allowing the enemy he was in a fight with an opportunity to land a fatal hit on him. In this way the poisoner could kill him without having to do it himself. After all, the assassinations on the Crown Prince was as common as eating and drinking. There would come one day when the Crown Prince would die because of a momentary mistake.
Ten days passed quickly. The allied forces of the four rebel armies had stationed outside the city and was proclaiming to kill the incapable ruler on behalf of the heavens. Because Su Mu’s people caused a lot of trouble to the rebel armies along the way, when these people arrived outside the imperial city, they were all already exhausted. The generals of the four parties ordered to rest on the spot, and blocked the main roads in and out of the city, planning to trap the people of the imperial city in it.
Su Mu who received the news sneered and summoned Qin Kunyu and several other generals.
“Chen pays respects to His Royal Highness.” Qin Kunyu and several other generals arrived before Su Mu’s bed and saluted.
Qin Kunyu naturally hated Su Mu very much, but he did not want this country to be destroyed. When the Crown Prince dies, the allied forces will inevitably fight for the throne. This would give other countries an opening to invade. Qin Kunyu originally planned to take refuge under a wise master, but the current Crown Prince gave him a glimmer of hope. And with his son still in Su Mu’s hands if he did something, Qin Ye would surely die.
Su Mu replied somewhat weakly: “Rise.”
“General Qin, what good strategy do you have against the rebels attacking the imperial city?” Su Mu asked.
Qin Kunyu stepped forward and replied: “Your Highness, the rebel armies have been exhausted from the long journey to the imperial city, so chen will prepare to attack all the rebel camps at night.”
Su Mu nodded and said: “Very good, it will be as General Qin said!” After a while, Su Mu said: “General Qin can divide the soldiers into small teams, whether day or night attack the rebels repeatedly.”
Qin Kunyu nodded. No matter what there should be soldiers stationed in the imperial city. Therefore not many people can be sent out so it would be difficult to have much effect through direct attacks. Such continuous harassment of the rebels would be a better method.
After midnight, Han Yang relayed the news that the allied forces of the rebel armies had all been attacked. Su Mu finally breathed a sigh of relief. To be honest, Su Mu was very afraid of Qin Kunyu betraying at this critical juncture, the consequences would be unthinkable. Fortunately, the heavens favored him this time.
The rebels were harassed repeatedly over the course of the day. They realized the enemy’s intention to drag them down and then annihilate them in one fell swoop, so they united and launched an attack in the morning. Even Su Mu who was lying on the bed vaguely heard the shouts and sounds of battle. Suddenly Su Mu’s expression shifted and felt something was wrong. The sound of killing was getting closer and closer, and within a moment it was clearly audible.
“The bounty for removing the head of the dog Emperor is 1,000 taels, and the bounty for removing the head of the Crown Prince is five hundred taels……”
Han Yang soon reported in a hurry, “Your Highness, Weiyuan General Liu Qi brought his cronies into the palace! Your Highness, I will help you escape……”
Su Mu raised his hand to stop Han Yang’s proposal and sneered: “This idiot is truly bold.”
Qin Kunyu brought all the soldiers to fight with the rebels outside the city, and the guards of the palace were less than one-tenth of the usual force, causing the eyes of those who covet the Emperor’s throne to become red with fervor. In less than a moment, Liu Qi, covered in blood, rushed into Su Mu’s room with his soldiers. He pointed the blood-stained sword at Su Mu, saying: “Su Mochi, you are utterly devoid of a conscience. This general will eliminate you on behalf of the heavens……”
The tone was righteous and even seem to have an awe-inspiring aura. Su Mu got up from the bed with a sneer, there was no panic on his face.
Liu Qi suddenly realized that something was wrong. Wasn’t the Crown Prince seriously ill in bed and dying? How come……
Before Liu Qi could react, he saw the Crown Prince reaching out to him with the smile of a devil. Liu Qi immediately waved the long knife in his hand, but Su Mu appeared in front of him in a blink of an eye like a ghost. Liu Qi who hadn’t even manage to react instantly felt a sharp pain in his heart, falling to the ground with his eyes wide open. In a matter of seconds the rest of the intruders fell to the ground as well.
Su Mu didn’t even bother to spare the people lying on the ground a second glance and walked out of the bedroom. Outside the door, there were shouts of killing. Like a tidal wave, as Su Mu walked by all were indiscriminately killed. All the places he passed became covered with corpses. With Liu Qi’s people a new group charged into the palace. A man with three or four parts resemblance to Su Mu arrived in front of Su Mu with a group of elite soldiers, expression triumphant.
Su Moqi looked at Su Mochi’s pale face, and with a happy smile on his face he said harshly: “Su Mochi, if you know what’s good for you then hurry up and kill yourself, otherwise this prince will have you hanged, drawn and quartered by five horses.”
Su Mu looked at him as if looking at a fool, and said, “Idiot.”
As Su Mu’s words fell, a general beside Su Moqi suddenly drew his sword fiercely. When everyone reacted, Su Moqi’s head had already fallen on the ground, and the person who drew the sword walked up to Su Mochi and said respectfully: “Tang Zheng of the imperial guard camp pays respects to His Royal Highness.”
Su Mu nodded and said: “Rise!”
Su Moqi was born at about the same time as Su Mochi. In the early years, the Emperor liked him very much and wanted to make him the Crown Prince. But then the Emperor listened to Changsheng’s words and made Su Mochi the Crown Prince. Thus, he always hated Su Mochi, but Su Mochi’s powerful martial arts and ruthless methods prevented him from daring to blatantly confront Su Mochi. Instead he secretly bribed the leader of the imperial guard camp Tang Zheng.
After finally getting the news that Su Mochi was seriously injured and dying, he was almost mad with joy. He hadn’t even considered that the imperial city was still being besieged by the rebels, eagerly leading his people to attack the imperial palace.
There was such a person with an old hatred for Su Mochi, so how could Su Mu leave himself unguarded? The first thing he did after transmigrating here was to secretly find Tang Zheng and bring him over to his side.
The shouts of killing outside the imperial city shook the sky, blood splattered like rain and life was cut like grass. But inside the imperial city it was just as turbulent and unpeaceful.
All those who intended to rebel, assassinate, and avenge were all brutally suppressed by the Crown Prince. Nearly six hundred people from dozens of families including the Liu family, Prince Cheng manor, and Zhao family were all killed by the Crown Prince. Su Mu purged the imperial city once again with a bloodbath.
At the same time, when the rebels outside the city were attacking the city with all their strength, they suddenly discovered that the Northern army, which had been their allies, turn their weapons on them instead. The three rebel armies from the East, Southeast, and Southwest all fled in disorder, uterrly defeated.

Most of the rats hiding in the dark have emerged, so it should be quiet for a while! Su Mu lay on the recliner and closed his eyes as he thought. Although his beautiful and handsome face appeared a little tired, it was not at all the appearance of one on the verge of dying from the past few days.

Thanks for the chapter! This was a much better writed chapter than the previous ones or this is the moment when finaly i feel things are settled in a more stable direction, i don’t know how to say’t better, i feel this chapter manages to show the true capabilities or show a more complete picture of him, even through i still wish the author choase to show the readers more details of all the things he had to do behind the scenes i for the things to end’up like this, not only in this chapter, but generally. After i finished reading the chapter i had the suspicion, because Ye Qingfens is not showed returning with that cure until things gets bloodly, that Su Mu was not that sick that he looked, but used the wound as a bait to expose all his enemie and finish them all with his ocasion, so he will not take the blame, and after he will be able to make the changes that he wants to do, much more quickly.
