Xi Ning applied the ointment to his forehead, and the cool ointment really relieved the pain a lot.
Uncle Rong hadn't left yet, and stood on the same spot while bending his back.
“One more thing Your Royal Highness.
The Immortal Emperor will invite the leaders of the spirit clan to dinner tomorrow night, and asks that you attend too.
The original Seventh prince didn't like going out.
In the past, even if there were such banquets, he would not attend it, and even if he attended, he would come back early.
But this time, the Immortal Emperor specially sent someone to notify him.
There should be something more important.
“All right, I got it.”
After Uncle Rong left, Xi Ning opened the mission panel and searched for the plot of the original book by himself, but the current timeline was too early.
The banquet is not mentioned in the book at all, and the system is not here, so there was no way for him to check other information.
Huo Xiu would definitely attend the banquet.
He was in a state of collapse right now, so he might cause some trouble, but Xi Ning hadn't received any mission instructions yet.
Finally, Xi Ning decided to ask about it after the system returned.
The banquet would start tomorrow night, and it was impossible for the system to check the data until that time.
Another box of ointment was still on the table.
Xi Ning picked it up and smelled it.
It was much more fragrant than the previous box.
It had a soothing and relaxing smell.
He also rubbed a little ointment on his forehead.
This medicine probably has some kind of sleep-inducing effect.
It was most suitable to use at night.
Not long after Xi Ning applied it to his forehead, he felt sleepy and he took a nap on the couch for a while.
Who knew how long it had been.
Someone pushed the door and approached Xi Ning.
Xi Ning slowly opened his eyes and saw Chu Yi half kneeling in front of the couch.
Xi Ning woke up instantly, holding his body up a little with his hand.
“What are you doing here”
Chu Yi was staying still in the same place, and said innocently, “I knocked on the door just now, but Your Royal Highness didn't respond, so I was a little worried and wanted to come in to take a look.”
Xi Ning didn't hear a knock on the door just now, maybe because he was asleep
He sat up silently, and Chu Yi reached out his hands and touched a corner of his clothes that was hanging on the side of the couch, acting like a little animal that was about to be abandoned.
“Even if your Royal Highness doesn't like me, don't drive me away, okay I don't have any place to go anymore except here, besides that General Huo……”
When Chu Yi was speaking about Huo Xiu, he seemed to be very scared of him.
His body that was half kneeling near Xi Ning's feet trembled, and his expression looked even more pitiful.
“Your Royal Highness……”
Xi Ning put his hand on his forehead.
“When did I say…...I want to drive you away”
He had this thought before, but he had to wait for the answer from the system.
“Really” Chu Yi was happy when he heard the words, and moved a little closer to Xi Ning.
“Thank you, Your Royal Highness……”
Xi Ning looked away.
“In the future, if I don't call for you, you don't have to come to serve me.”
Chu Yi’s face, which was still happy just now, froze, and the corner of his mouth slowly pressed down.
He didn't dare to say any more, and lowered his head.
“Yes, Your Royal Highness.”
He reluctantly got up and left, hoping that Xi Ning would change his mind, but Xi Ning said nothing.
Chu Yi glanced at the ointment on the table before leaving, and after leaving the room, he suppressed all his expressions.
Even until the next morning, Xi Ning did not see Chu Yi again.
Xi Ning dressed by himself in the morning.
Although it took a lot of time, he didn't see any problems after he finished putting it on.
The banquet prepared by the Immortal Emperor was about to begin that evening, but the system still did not return.
Xi Ning decided to go there after thinking further about it.
If there was nothing unusual about Huo Xiu, he would come back earlier.
If he caused any trouble, Xi Ning could also stop it as soon as possible.
In the end, Xi Ning went to the banquet alone.
There were already a lot of people in the hall when he arrived.
Xi Ning was guided by the maid and servant and sat down in his seat.
He was the youngest son of the Immortal Emperor, so his seat was arranged at the back.
There were a few seats in front of him that were already occupied by his older brothers.
They also greeted him when they saw Xi Ning, and exchanged a few words of greeting.
Xi Ning didn't talk much, and this original body also spoke less.
Those princes also didn't care about him, and they went chatting on their own.
The immortal emperor hadn't arrived yet, Xi Ning observed the hall silently, determining which one of them was the spirit clan leader that was invited to the banquet, and he suddenly came across with Huo Xiu's gaze.
Huo Xiu sat diagonally opposite Xi Ning, with a young man in a black robe beside him, but the young man didn't look like he was a subordinate of Huo Xiu.
Huo Xiu smiled at Xi Ning.
He poured a glass of wine and raised his glass in the air.
Xi Ning only took a look at it and then looked away coldly.
Huo Xiu smiled even more when he saw it, and he didn't care about Xi Ning's attitude at all.
He raised his head and drank the wine in his glass.
The Immortal Emperor seemed to be busy with something.
There were singing and dancing events that had been arranged in the hall, but the Immortal Emperor did not appear even after a few fairy dancers danced.
