Shen Jing Xi was surprised when she heard Xiao Jun Xi's demand. She then looked at Xie Ru Zhuo, sarcastically said: "Wow Xie Ru Zhuo, I didn't expect this! The Third Prince has such a deep affection toward you, hmm, is it because you have such a beautiful face? I wonder if I scratch your face, will other men still be interested in you?"

She then pointed the sword on her hand at Xie Ru Zhuo's face. Shen Jing Ci 's action immediately caused Xiao Jun Xi to panic.

He clenched his fists tightly, "Shen Jing Ci, don’t you dare! If you touch even a strand of her hair, I will make sure you never get what you desire the most, do you believe it?"

He then coughed violently as his anger triggered his illness.

Shen Jing Ci sneered when she heard Xiao Jun Xi's threat, she retracted the sword: "Third Prince is really a sentimental person!" She then thoughtfully looked at Xie Ru Zhuo and Xiao Jun Xi.

"Third prince, the Black Knight command token!"

When Xiao Jun Xi heard Shen Jing Ci's words, he looked at her "Shen Jing Ci, exchanging a person's life with the command token, don't you understand this?"

Shen Jing Ci smiled maliciously when she heard him: "Third Prince, the one interested with the Black Knight command token is not me but His Royal Majesty. I will only give you one chance. If you don’t hand it to me now, I will torment Xie Ru Zhuo slowly in front of you, do you see all the scars on her body? I did that, but I haven't tried all my methods on her yet! It’s a good thing that the Third Prince is here, you can be my audience."

"You!" His breathing became a little unstable when Xiao Jun Xi heard her. The only weakness in his life other than his father is the woman in front of him. He didn't expect that he would be fighting with this vicious woman today. He hated her! However, he had to compromise to save Xie Ru Zhuo!

Xie Ru Zhuo's tears were flowing profusely. In her life, she let down the man in front of her the most. Regardless of her actions towards him in the past, he still chooses to come to her rescue at this time.

She owed this man too much!

Xie Ru Zhuo anxiously screams at him: "Xiao Jun Xi, leave now! I don't want you to save me! Go!"

"Hahaha!" Shen Jing Ci laughed gleefully when she heard Xie Ru Zhuo's chasing him away: "Third Prince, can’t you hear, she doesn’t even want you to save her!"

Xiao Jun Xi's eyes flashed with hurt, but he did not respond to Xie Ru Zhuo pleadings. Instead, he cast his gaze on Shen Jing Ci and said in a cold voice: "Shen Jing Ci, you said it yourself, my second royal brother wants the Black Knight command token. If he knows that he has a chance to get his hands on it, but because of you, he failed to get it. Do you think he will let you go? Even if he promises to elevate you to the position of a queen, there is no imperial decree, he could always change his mind, you out of all people should understand the way he thinks!"

When Shen Jing Ci heard this, she clenched her fist subconsciously.

"Fine! Exchange her with the command token!" Shen Jing Ci said with anger.

Xiao Jun Xi was secretly relieved when he heard Shen Jing Ci's decision.

Shen Jing Ci then signaled a soldier next to her exchange to Xie Ru Zhuo with the command token. She stood on the city wall and coldly looked at the situation below her.

Xie Ru Zhuo shook her head repeatedly at Xiao Jun Xi, but he failed to show any reaction.

The soldier received the Black Knight command token and nodded towards Shen Jing Ci, at the same time, he pushed Xie Ru Zhuo towards Xiao Jun Xi's soldier.

At this moment, Shen Jing Ci shouted in a high-pitched voice: "Kill !"

As soon as Shen Jing Ci gave the order, multiple crossbows that had been prepared fired a number of arrows.

"Protect the Third Prince!" The guards around Xiao Jun Xi immediately encircled him, but at the same time they overlooked Xie Ru Zhuo.

"No!" Xiao Jun Xi helplessly watched an arrow pierced through Xie Ru Zhuo's chest, the shock of watching her die in front of him triggered a mouthful of blood to pour out from his mouth and sprayed onto the ground.

"Sorry... I'm so sorry..." Xie Ru Zhuo silently said it to Xiao Jun Xi who was vomiting blood in front of her. Xie Ru Zhuo could feel her life slowly slipping away, she took one last glance at Xiao Jun Xi, gradually closed her eyes, and plunged into the darkness...
