Su Mu gritted his teeth, the muscles in his entire body tightening. He remained sitting on the chair, controlling his body with all his strength. But still he couldn’t suppress the emotions and memories that had always been buried in this body.

Under the sun, a twelve or thirteen-year-old boy was hiding in the shadow of a corner alone, covered with wounds and injuries. A young girl hurriedly came to him where she then applied medicine on his wounds while shedding tears.
On a rainy night, he knelt on the outdoor floor, entire body cold and drenched. The girl knelt beside him holding an umbrella over him while wiping his cheeks with a sweet-scented handkerchief.
In the snow, he lay on the icy ground covered with blood all over. The girl hurriedly arrived with a quilt and hugged him with her body to warm him.
Numerous images rushed into Su Mu’s mind, finally ending with the young girl dying from taking a blow in order to save him. At the image of the young girl falling to the ground like a butterfly, Su Mu could no longer control himself, the desire to destroy the whole world overwhelming his senses. His eyes were bloodshot and the veins on his forehead popped violently.
As soon as this familiar scene appeared, Yun Feiyu, Liu Xi, and Huang Xuan immediately stood up from their chairs, their hearts beating wildly. The other officials also immediately hid themselves when they saw that the situation was not good.
Lin Siyuan glanced at the Crown Prince who was on the verge of losing control and hurried to Yun Feiyu’s side. He asked anxiously, “What is going on, why is the Crown Prince like this?”
Yun Feiyu glanced at the Crown Prince who was trying his best to control himself, and quickly said to Lin Siyuan: “We’ll talk about this later, have everyone leave first.”
“What about you?” Lin Siyuan asked uneasily.
Yun Feiyu glanced at Princess Qingshuang, who was the culprit, and said, “Someone has to look after the Crown Prince. You quickly lead them away.”
Lin Siyuan had no other choice but to call over the officials and quickly withdraw from Chaoyun Pavilion.
Princess Qingshuang didn’t seem to have expected this either. She looked at Su Mu, whose face was twisted in pain and covered in tears, her eyes deep with unfathomable thoughts.
Yun Feiyu glanced at Princess Qingshuang, who was still standing still, and said in a harsh tone: “Please go back to the embassy first, we won’t be entertaining the Princess today.”
Seeing that the situation was a serious one, Princess Qingshuang, said “goodbye” and led Hong Tao away, who appeared both scared and gloating.
After a while, only Yun Feiyu, Liu Xi, Huang Xuan and a delirious Su Mu were left in Chaoyun Pavilion. Liu Xi and Huang Xuan suppressed the fear in their hearts and slowly approached Su Mu with a look of worry.
Liu Xi walked up to Su Mu and called tentatively. Su Mu suddenly raised his head, hand snapping out to clasp around Liu Xi’s neck like lightning. The killing intent and insanity in his eyes caused Liu Xi to tremble involuntarily.
Liu Xi’s face was flushed, squeezing out a few words with difficulty. However, his voice did cause some hint of clarity to return to Su Mu’s eyes.
Qingxue’s face kept overlapping with Liu Xi’s face, causing Su Mu’s head to feel a splitting pain. He knew that this was just another person’s memory and another person’s feelings, but he still couldn’t control himself.
Su Mochi was already obsessed to the level of madness. So long as it was anything related to Qingxue, he would completely lose control. Su Mu didn’t expect that even after taking over this body for so long, he still couldn’t control the obsession that remained from his predecessor.
The name Qingxue had long been branded into every inch of Su Mochi’s flesh and blood. Su Mu closed his eyes and shook his head vigorously, releasing the hand holding Liu Xi’s neck and hurriedly pushing him far away.
Not enough time had passed since the poison in Su Mu’s body had been completely detoxified, and his body had not fully recovered. At this time, the internal force that had been stabilized in his body was out of control once again due to this new shock. A trace of blood dripped down from the corner of his mouth, causing Huang Xuan to panic. Completely throwing all fear aside, he said anxiously: “Your Highness, what’s wrong? Let me have a look…..”
Huang Xuan stretched out his hand and was about to place it on Su Mu’s wrist, but Su Mu pushed it away, and Huang Xuan, who was unprepared, stumbled back abruptly and could only watch Su Mu walking backwards step by step with blood overflowing from the corner of his mouth. When he tried to rush to Su Mu again, he was stopped by Yun Feiyu from behind.
“Don’t go over, you will provoke the Crown Prince even more if you get close.”
Yun Feiyu walked over and stood beside Huang Xuan watching as Su Mu completely destroyed an obstructing pillar with a fist, and then hurriedly sit on the ground to control his rampaging internal force. He kept repeating “Qingxue” over and over the whole time.
Huang Xuan stopped in his tracks and looked at the Crown Prince sitting on the ground with a pained expression still on his face, and asked with distress and anxiety: “Who is Qingxue? Is there a relationship with that Princess Qingshuang? How come the Crown Prince became like this just as she showed up?”
Yun Feiyu shook his head: “I don’t know, all the people who had any connection to the Crown Prince had been killed by the Crown Prince himself five years ago.”
At this moment, Liu Xi who was pushed to the ground by Su Mu coughed a few times and stood up. He said: “This…..I know a little…..” He turned his face to the side, seeming a little unwilling to say it. After all, being a former spy for the Shi kingdom was not a glorious thing.
Yun Feiyu and Huang Xuan turned their heads to look at him at the same time, and Huang Xuan anxiously asked, “What is it? Spit it out already!”
At this time, Liu Xi didn’t have the energy to even care about his rival yelling at him, instead he replied with furrowed brows: “Qingxue was a palace maid when the Crown Prince was still a powerless prince. At that time when the Crown Prince was mistreated, she was always there to take care of the Crown Prince.” Pausing, Liu Xi’s seemed a bit unhappy, his tone becoming slightly harder: “She was in love with the Crown Prince, and the Crown Prince was also in love with her, but then later she died for some reason, and the Crown Prince’s temperament changed drastically since then.”
Liu Xi looked at the deathly pale Su Mu in the distance and said, “I only know so much.”
“But how can a palace maid get involved with Princess Qingshuang from Shi kingdom? The identities of the two are too different.” Huang Xuan asked in puzzlement.
At this time, Yun Feiyu spoke: “Fifteen years ago, the political state in Shi kingdom was in upheaval, and Shi Ran killed all his brothers and their families. However, several young princes and princesses fled. The royal generation after Shi Ran’s generation fall under the ‘Qing’ generation and I believe that Qingxue should be the same generation as Princess Qingshuang, and both are Shi Ran’s nieces.”
As soon as he finished speaking, the three of them heard a vomiting sound, and the floor in front of Su Mu was instantly stained with a large patch of bright red. Even the front of the black court robes also became stained dark with blood. Seeing this, the three hurriedly gathered around Su Mu and called anxiously: “Your Highness…..”
Su Mu opened his eyes, the previously red veins on his eyes having faded. Su Mu used all of his strength to finally suppress his impulse, but he also paid a dear price as his body must now recuperate all over again from the beginning. Su Mu felt weak all over, his body trembling slightly. He said hoarsely, “Help me back to the inner room.”
Liu Xi and Huang Xuan hurriedly helped Su Mu into the inner room of Chaoyun Pavilion. Yun Feiyu, who had also stretched out his hand, silently lowered it and followed the three of them into the room.
Su Mu half leaned on the bed, a cold murderous intent in his eyes, trying to control his anger as he said: “Shi Ran, do you really think I can’t do anything about you? Hai hai hai…..”

Although Su Mu tried to suppress his anger, Su Mu still angrily wanted nothing more than to immediately draw and quarter Shi Ran with five horses. This time Su Mu was really angry. Qingxue was Su Mochi’s taboo, and Su Mu’s taboo was being played as a fool by others. It just so happened that Shi Ran committed both. Su Mu would let him go only in the case he completely lost his mind.
