The Journey to find the New Golden Emperor (V5 Complete)by
CHAPTER 100 **What A Mess!?**
"…Stay here until Steven returns."
"Yes, Your Highness!" Band Three answered.
Matthew looked down at him, knowing that he had put his fourth finger up. He had indeed felt suspicious, and she had gone as far as drugging him...But, Band Three had done something that he wasn't supposed to do! He had never been approved to do something as sinister as that!
"This Prince is thankful you stopped anything from happening between Miss Haves and myself, that, I very much appreciate...But…You will still report to Band Nine!"
"...Yes...Yes, Your Highness!" Band Three said. He knew he deserved punishment...Band Nine will take a whole cultivation base rank of someone for punishment, and one cannot leave his side until that rank has been regained. This type of punishment might not be painful in the physical sense, but with how long you take to get that rank back and the fact that you had gone to Band Nine in the first place, meant disloyalty…Band Three will come back as another Band, perhaps a number beyond twenty…
"This Prince will leave first!" Matthew said, angrily throwing his sleeves about and jumping away.
As much as Matthew preferred to be with his Princess right at this moment, he had things to take care off before she was to return back home!
Walking into his estate, he found that the doors to his chambers were still closed.
How long would that drug last? Would it still be in effect?
Not taking the chance of becoming intoxicated like that once again, Matthew instead went to his Princess’s chambers and decided to sleep there instead. Even though his head didn’t ache as much as it first did upon becoming sober, pain still lingered…
He knew that he had a lot to do, even right now...But, just a couple of hours of sleep shouldn't be a problem...
It had been such a long day!
His Princess coming to teleport him and the emperor, having to see the Empress and Miss Haves. Staying in court, to seeing Nate...Coming back to find his Princess fainting...Having guests...Being drugged! Being...Slightly satisfied, by his most dearest person...
The day had been long...Too long! And Matthew found himself able to sleep rather quickly...
Matthew rose early, a little earlier than normal. It was more fair to say that he had a short nap, then that of a sleep. Normally, he could manage the lack of sleep with no difficultly, as he had gotten used to it…But, lately, while his Princess had been here with him, he had gotten a decent amount of sleep…So now, he felt tired and lethargic, missing his Princess more because of it.
He could only splash cold water on his face and remind himself about his problems, to make himself wake up faster…
First, he had to figure out what to do with Miss Haves…
Upon the doors to his own chambers being opened, he found a mess and then the couple that seemed to have fainted into sleep…It wasn’t a nice sight to see in his own, private bed chamber…
Could he even sleep here now? Maybe he should re decorate or…Just bring this place to rubble, to nothing, and start again…
Getting two Bands to search the room for anything that didn’t belong there, Matthew got two other Bands to pick the two naked bodies up and to throw them into the dungeon for now…Matthew, not even asking who the male was, not really wanting to know…
From what he knew of Miss Haves, she was supposed to be marrying the Third Prince…But, that can’t happen now, as she was no longer innocent. Not only that, but she also knew of the plan that he had for his wedding date and really didn’t like the idea of letting her loose…
Sighing, Matthew knew he would have to report this to His Majesty in private and ask what to do with her. Obviously, they could just throw her out and make her reputation known, or they could detain her, stating that she had gone missing at some point…They could also make her marry the man that had taken her innocence…
But, since all this involved the Third Prince, Matthew couldn’t hide this news…Yet another reason that he didn’t like the fact that Band Three had gone as far as making her lose her innocence.
It really was a predicament!
There was another factor as well…Not only might she try and say that she had been intimate with the Second Prince in his own chambers, but, since she had gone as far as wanting to drug someone, who knows what else she might do!
It really was an unwelcome problem to Matthew, who hadn’t even attended court yet, but already had a headache!
Since he had some extra time before court officially started, Matthew sought out the emperor beforehand.
The emperor looked at Matthew and smiled, he was still very happy that he was being referred to as ‘father’ once again. It gave him a hell of a lot of pride to be known better in Matthew’s heart then that of a Golden Heir…Ah, if a light could show how proud he was, the emperor would be as pure white!
“This Prince has news.” Matthew stated seriously, taking a moment to collect his thoughts. “My Princess brought back the Seventh Prince from Purple Haven yesterday and this Prince would like to introduce you to him today.”
The emperor looked at Matthew in shock…Had he heard that right…Purple Haven…
“Se…Seventh Prince?” The emperor asked unbelievably.
Matthew nodded, “Yes, Your Majesty!”
“…Yes…Emperor Father!” Matthew smirked.
“My Son…Are you telling me…Someone from Purple Haven, is now in Green Haven?” The emperor asked, still not quite sure how to understand what is going on.
Not knowing that the one who had mind controlled him in the past, was in fact from another Haven as well, the Emperor thought this as something that can never happen…In which case it wasn’t normal, it was unheard of, that someone from another Haven had come…The Haven’s were months in travel distance away as well…And someone from another Haven is here, and it’s not just anyone, it’s a Prince!?
Matthew took a deep breath in and then said, “Yes, Emperor Father, Purple Haven had come to misfortune and now only has the Seventh Prince, Prince Seth, remaining that is royalty. My Princess teleported him and his Princess here to Green Haven and I saw with my own eyes that they were hungry and thirsty. Prince Seth is hopeful and wants to help his people and this Prince thinks that it would be ideal that we treat them as honored guests and even help them.”
The emperor was silent, while considering these words. Teleporting all the way from Purple Haven to Green Haven!
But…How in the world could they help Purple Haven!?
As a minute of silence went by, the emperor continued to think about what Matthew had just said, and finally replied, “The only remaining royal heir to Purple Haven?”
“Yes, Emperor Father.” Matthew nodded. “This Prince believes that through some kind of revolt, the food workers were killed but were never replaced. By what I have heard, Purple Haven is in a state of famine.”
“Famine…Revolt. Last remaining heir…” The emperor mumbled.
Matthew watched the emperor as he paced slowly and had a finger to his chin, making his small beard a little crumpled.
He noticed that the emperor looked a little bit younger now, that his beard, that had gotten a few white hairs, was now all brown once again.
Seeing the Emperor abruptly stop and look at him, Matthew waited…
“Bring this up again in court, we will all decide together.”
Nodding, Matthew still stood there, bowing his head because he was hiding a frown.
“…What else is there, my son?” The emperor finally asked.
Matthew didn’t want to bring the next matter up at all! It was such a mess!
“My son?” The emperor repeated. Was he…Did he have a disagreement with Sahara?
“This Prince also needs to report that Miss Haves had come into my estate unwelcomed and even dressed as a servant. She also attempted to drug this Prince…But we did not get intimate…I have placed her into my dungeon for the time being…With the man who had taken her innocence.”
Matthew bowed again, not wanting anything else to do with the matter!
“Miss…Miss Haves!?” The emperor became wide eyed in surprise, knowing who she was straight away. It was only yesterday that he sent the decree for her to marry his third son, “Are you certain!?”
Lifting his head, showing an annoyed look to the emperor, “Yes, Your Majesty…Emperor Father…If it wasn’t for Band Three, I may have…”
The emperor saw Matthew’s frown and closed eyed, pained look…
…For having a woman want him so badly, to this extent…Why is he not happy!?
Will he forever be with only one woman!?
The emperor was silent, mostly because he didn’t understand! But…He was silent because…Like Matthew, what was he going to do!?
“This is a predicament indeed.”
The emperor frowned as well, if his son could have just slept with her then it would be easier. Granted she ruined a decree that he made but he could bestow another of equal value, but now…Now that his son was so adamant on not accepting her, not only is the decree not going to happen, but she had indeed drugged a prince, as well as now lost her innocence!
…What a mess…
“This Prince knows, Emperor Father.” Matthew nodded and sighed. He knew that the emperor might find it hard to understand, with the differences of their harems…But Matthew stood his ground, continuing not to give any future to Miss Haves that had anything to do with him.
“If she can’t marry the Third Prince, because she has lost her chastity, then we would not obtain the ownership of the Spirit Convert Association rightfully. Her family is the richest and very well known, yet she does such an act!”
The emperor narrows his eyes, while looking at nothing in particular, “Does she think that she can do whatever she pleases? Is this King to be taken for a fool!? In the case of the Third Prince intentionally becoming the next Emperor, how can she act this way as the future Empress!? This will not do! This King is very displeased!”
Clenching his fists, Matthew smirked.
Good! Emperor Father is angry. I did the right thing by informing him of the situation!
Matthew had been slightly worried that the emperor would make him take Miss Haves into his harem…Luckily, though…She had slighted the emperor himself, and that was what Matthew wanted the emperor to see and act upon!
“Eunuch Chun!” The emperor yelled. “Eunuch…”
“Yes, Your Majesty!” Eunuch Chun bowed and spoke.
“Eunuch Chun, this King demands to see Master Merchant Haves! Bring him to me!” The emperor stated.
Matthew took that moment to ask, “What of the ownership to the Spirit Convert Association?”
The emperor turned quickly to Matthew, and he was obviously angry, “Perhaps this King will take it off him for disregarding a royal decree, or should I dare take it off him for his daughter’s attempt of drugging my son! Let him ask for it if he dares! Shameless! Utterly Shameless! He will be lucky if his whole family survives!”
Matthew nodded, agreeing with the emperor. “Should we go to court then, Emperor Father?”
The emperor let out a deep huff and seemed to calm down, “Yes, this King is ready for court.”
Matthew kept his small amusement to himself and followed after the emperor.
Sahara woke up, having to quickly dress herself but staying in bed, she didn’t feel strange having woken up naked. Besides, what had happened, wasn’t like she regretted it or could change it…
Yes, Sahara remembered most of what happened the night before. Now that she had slept, she finally questioned why Matthew had come to her last night and why he had been the way he was. She tried to remember what the person said, when he put Matthew on her bed, but couldn’t quite remember…
Mmm, it isn’t my fault that I can’t remember, sweet hands were touching me in sweet places at that time…
…Obviously, he had been drugged, but how did he get drugged? And the type of drug…Well, wasn’t it obvious?
Sahara sighed as she realized that someone was out to get her man, and she wasn’t positive, but she did have an idea on who it could have been…
I should follow up on that after I get back home!
As Naruto licked her face, Sahara absently pat him and remembered how intimate Matthew and she had gotten last night.
Ah…That’s right, in this type of era, maybe that kind of foreplay is hardly used, uh? Haha, the poor guy was pretty gone! I must have rocked his world!
How he had called her name really did make her smile!
Sahara had heard how much he wanted her and that the drug only amplified his need. He’s lucky he was calling out her name, that’s for sure!
Haha, she felt pretty good after thinking that and it wasn’t long before word got out that she had woken up…Then had servants rushing her to eat her breakfast, so that she could get back to getting ready for her marriage…
But she really didn’t want too!
Really, what do they need me for now!? They have my measurements…I learnt a lot of things last night! This is…Tiring! And I only just woke up!
