Lai Qinghua’s words left Fei Jianzhong with no way to refute them, and he was even more devastated inwardly.
And Lai Qing Hua, seemingly wanting to wake up this old friend once and for all, continued, “Jianzhong, you must understand that your son did not simply usurp your throne, he instigated the civil and military officials to overthrow your dynasty together. other shareholders on the board.”
“Let me put it in other words, you are like the old emperor in ancient times who would not hesitate to trade the power of a kingdom for himself in exchange for longevity, your children and grandchildren, your civil and military ministers are no longer able to see this, and not only do they no longer support you, they no longer trust you either, they even see you as a faint and tyrannical ruler who only wants to get things back on track after overthrowing you!”
“Think about it yourself, if you hadn’t lost the support of everyone yourself, how could your eldest son have so easily and completely, snatched away your great power?”
Speaking here, Lai Qinghua paused slightly for a moment and said with emotion, “Jianzhong, everything has a cause and effect, you have to reflect on yourself!”
At this moment, Fei Jianzhong’s whole body was struck by lightning.
Before this, he only knew that it was his son who had seized his power and snatched away the dynasty he had worked so hard to build.
But now he realised that it was he who was bent on seeking immortality, thus also depriving himself of a base of support and trust within his own dynasty.
Under such circumstances, how could he still think of taking back the power? It was a fool’s dream!
Thinking of this, Fei Jianzhong was speechless and in tears.
And Fei Ke Xin was also awakened by Lai Qinghua’s words.
She was hoping that her grandfather would live a long life, so she was extremely supportive of his quest for longevity and the elixir of rejuvenation.
But apart from the filial piety she should have as a granddaughter, a large part of this was also based on her own interests.
She and her father, as well as her older siblings from the same father and mother, had always lacked sufficient roots in the family and had to rely on the blessing of the old man to live a life of ease.
If the old man had died early, her father, as the youngest son of Fei Jianzhong, would inevitably have received only minimal benefits.
This was the crux of the matter.
Just because one wished for one’s grandfather to live did not mean that others felt the same way.
At this time, Ye Chen suddenly spoke coldly, “Back then, after King Zhu Di of Yan rose up in rebellion and drove his nephew, Emperor Jianwen, out of the palace, he still had trouble sleeping and eating, and spent his whole life searching for the whereabouts of Emperor Jianwen, you should also be careful nowadays that your son is driving you to extinction.”
Fei Jianzhong looked at Ye Chen and smiled bitterly, “He …… should not be so ruthless as to …… just now he was on the phone and also spoke to me openly and honestly, what he meant was that as long as I don’t go back to America, let me live out the rest of my life, and when I die, then let Kexin bring my remains back to the United States for burial.”
Ye Chen smiled playfully, shook his head and said seriously, “In my opinion, the reason he said that was based on the premise that he thought you would only live for a month or two at most, and he probably also thought that after he had stimulated you so much, you would probably even die on the spot at the auction, or fall apart since the auction, so that the days that were already few would continue to The days that were already numbered will continue to be greatly diminished.”
Speaking of this, Ye Chen looked at him and said blandly, “If I hadn’t saved you just now, he might have gotten what he wanted by now.”
Hearing these words, Fei Jianzhong’s expression became appalled.
Ye Chen’s expression was austere at this point as he continued to ask him, “Imagine if he knew that you now had an extra year or two of life for nothing, would he still be so calm and let you live out the rest of your life in the country?”
With this question, Ye Chen made both Fei Jianzhong and Fei Kexin’s hearts leap with fear!
Fei Jianzhong originally thought that although he had lost the great power of the Fei family, he would at least have an extra year or two to live, and since Ye Chen’s Spring Return Pill would continue to be auctioned off next year, he might still have a chance.
But when he heard this, he realised that he had thought a little too optimistically.
