Yi Nuo said to elope and did so as soon as possible. Not only did he run away, but he also blocked the emperor’s terminal number.
After getting in the hover car, Yi Nuo thought about it for a while and said to Yue Zhan, “You also block him.”
Yue Zhan hesitated and said, “This is not good, is it? In case there is something related to work…”
Yi Nuo hummed and said willfully, “He is busy interrogating the turtle. What urgent matter can happen? Besides, aren’t you on vacation? If there is an urgent matter, let him contact the military headquarters, and they will contact you…”
Seeing Yue Zhan’s hesitation, Yi Nuo directly grabbed the terminal on the other party’s wrist and said, “Oh, just block him on your personal number. There’s no need to listen to his orders on your private number.”
Yue Zhan: “…” Having said that, apart from being his boss, the emperor was still his old father-in-law in name.
The wife was at odds with the father-in-law. As a prospective spouse, he… Of course had to stand on his wife’s side.
Then block it.
He directly opened the terminal for the little prince to operate. If the emperor blamed him, let’s say it was an accident.
Yi Nuo said that he wanted to block him, but when Yue Zhan really let him do it, he doubted, thinking—
[What if it really delays important things?]
Yue Zhan rubbed his head and said, “It’s alright. If His Majesty has an emergency, he can call me on the special line of the military headquarters. It’s faster.”
Yi Nuo said, “oh”, and after thinking for a while, he only set his number to the emperor to be busy. In this way, Yue Zhan can still see when the emperor calls and call back at any time if he wants to, but it will show the emperor that Yue Zhan is on a call.
After setting it up, Yi Nuo couldn’t help but peek at the contacts in Yue Zhan’s private number and found that he was pinned to the top. His nickname was changed to “Little Fish”, with a note of “Dear Wife”.
Yi Nuo blushed and thought Yue Zhan was really cold outside but passionate inside, but he also felt it was not good for him to peep. After a while, he asked in a low voice: “Well, do you want to… Look at my private number too?”
Hearing his words, Yue Zhan raised his eyebrows slightly and asked, “Check each other’s numbers?”
Yi Nuo blushed even more, and said defyingly, “It’s fine if you don’t look at it.”
Yue Zhan certainly looked at it. Not only did he look, but he also changed his nickname to “Dear Old Attack”.
Yi Nuo: “…”
Scott had no idea that Yi Nuo was no longer in the palace.
On the way to Yi Nuo’s bedroom, he thought a lot. He thought of the eyes that were always hesitant to speak before Queen Delan had an accident. When he saw little Yi Nuo before, he occasionally felt that the child’s eyebrows and eyes were a little familiar, but he never cared about it. Thinking of the quarrel two days ago, when he said that if he hadn’t given Yi Nuo the status of a prince, he couldn’t have married Yue Zhan, the little boy’s eyes turned red…
How could he not realize at the time that those peach blossom eyes with thin red at the end looked like angry Li Ya?
The more Scott thought about it, the more flustered his heart became. He walked faster and faster and simply started trotting.
Lu Xien followed him closely with the guards. He didn’t know what had happened, so he could only make the guards go faster.
When he arrived at the palace where Yi Nuo lived, Scott didn’t let the servants pass the word and opened the door directly.
However, he couldn’t find Yi Nuo in the main hall, the study room… he was nowhere to be found, Yue Zhan wasn’t there either, just a few maids.
Scott’s heart sank, and he turned and walked back in again.
Seeing that he was about to go to the bedroom, a maid hurried forward and said in great embarrassment, “Your Majesty, Your Majesty, His Highness will not let anyone in here.”
Scott paused slightly and turned aside.
This was the gym. Although he didn’t care about his younger son, he had come to the gym several times when Queen Delan was still alive and had a little impression of the layout here.
However, when he opened the door, he was surprised to find there was an additional swimming pool in the room.
Scott was stunned and asked the person next to him, “When was this dug?”
The maid came forward and said respectfully, “When His Highness was in Blue Star, he suddenly ordered someone to dig it.”
“At Blue Star…” Scott was stunned again.
Yes, Yi Nuo had never been implanted with an artificial uterus. When he was in Blue Star, there was a war, and he still had to investigate Zhong’s family case. Therefore, it was impossible to implant it, but he was pregnant…
It must have been at that time when the blood of the adult fish awakened, so it was necessary to dig the swimming pool.
Yue Zhan must also know about it. Maybe he took advantage of the danger, and Yi Nuo was…
Thinking of this, Scott suddenly had a sour taste in his throat, and his body swayed.
Lu Xien quickly stepped forward to support him and said, “Your Majesty, take care of yourself.”
Scott shoved him away, stood firm, and said, “I’m fine. I’m only fifty years old. I’m still young. I haven’t met the good boy yet…”
He unsteadily walked to the pool, bent over, and lifted a handful of water.
The swimming pool was kept clean, and not a single scale could be found, but Scott was sure that Yi Nuo must have swum here as a mermaid.
His eyes fell on the photo frame not far away. Looking at the smiling brows and eyes of the teenager in the photo, he suddenly felt more similar. Like himself, like Li Ya…
Why didn’t he find out before?
Scott frowned, turned around, and asked, “Where’s Yi Nuo?”
The maid hurriedly replied, “His Royal Highness and Major General Yue left the palace together.”
“Left the palace?” Scott was stunned for a moment, then asked, “Where did they go so late?”
The maid shook her head, thinking to herself: How can I know?
Scott hurriedly opened the terminal and called Yi Nuo, only to find that he had been blocked.
His face darkened, and he called Yue Zhan several times, but the line was always busy.
In a seaside manor in the seventh district of the Imperial Star, Yi Nuo was swimming in the sea with his blue fishtail, teasing a little dolphin.
This was an indoor bathing place. It had a large area, and a flow of seawater. To be precise, it was more like an indoor sea paradise, with beaches, hot springs, marine life, and tropical plants…
The key was that it was completely private. It was an engagement gift from Yue Zhan to Yi Nuo. Turning into a mermaid here, Yi Nuo doesn’t have to worry about being discovered by outsiders.
Holding a glass of milk, Yue Zhan stood on the edge of the pool and waved to him.
Yi Nuo quickly swam toward him and asked, “What’s wrong?”
“It’s getting late. His Highness should go to bed.” Yue Zhan said as he handed over the milk.
Yi Nuo took the milk, and after he finished drinking, he said, “I will sleep in the sea tonight.”
After saying that, he saw the terminal on Yue Zhan’s wrist lit up and subconsciously asked, “Is my royal father still calling you?”
Yue Zhan coughed lightly, smiled, and asked softly, “Do you want me to take it?”
“Whatever you want.” Yi Nuo returned the glass to him, turned around, and swam away.
Scott couldn’t get through to Yue Zhan’s phone, and his face became uglier and uglier. After being silent for two seconds, he directly told Lu Xien, “Go and find out where they are.”
After that, he himself called the old Duke of Delan.
When the old duke heard him ask about Yi Nuo’s life experience, he immediately knew that he couldn’t hide what his daughter had done. After a while, he couldn’t help but sigh and admitted, “His Royal Highness Yi Nuo is indeed not Queen Delan’s son, but I don’t know his specific life experience either. I only heard Queen Delan say that he was His Majesty’s child.”
Was he his child?
Scott hung up the phone and clenched his fists.
If he was his child, who else could he be besides his dear cub?
It was the queen. The queen must have exchanged the eggs.
With a gloomy look on his face, the Emperor turned to ask Lu Xien, “Have you found them?”
“I’m still investigating. It’s just…” Lu Xien trembled.
Scott interrupted him directly and said, “Is it so difficult? He must be with Yue Zhan. Call the military headquarters, and also call Yue Chuanlin.”
As a result, in the middle of the night, from the military headquarters to the Yue family, no one could sleep because the emperor kept them awake.
Mrs. Yue yawned and complained, “Why is that guy going crazy in the middle of the night?”
Yue Chuanlin said with a strange expression, “His Majesty is very angry, saying that our son abducted his dear child.”
Mrs. Yue was stunned for a moment, and then complained, “Is he crazy? He married his son to our family. What’s wrong with the young couple going out of the palace to play? Is it also worth his efforts? I’ve never seen him care about little Yi Nuo so much before. Why did he suddenly become so controlling?
Yue Chuanlin didn’t understand either.
However, for Scott, this was a crucial matter. After finding out the whereabouts of Yi Nuo and his wife, he didn’t sleep and went out of the palace in the middle of the night.
Lu Xien was frightened and thought that if the parliament’s people knew about this, they might think something important had happened.
When Scott arrived at the seaside manor, Yi Nuo had just fallen asleep, so he was greeted by Yue Zhan.
Looking at the facilities in the manor, Scott was even more sure that Yue Zhan knew about Yi Nuo being a mermaid. The manor was very suitable for raising mermaids.
Thinking of this, he used to see how satisfactory Yue Zhan was, but now he was not pleasing to the eye.
This shameless big-tailed wolf, who usually pretended not to like beauty, used despicable means to deceive his dear child without his knowledge.
Yue Zhan could clearly perceive the dissatisfaction in Scott’s eyes. He couldn’t help but be a little cautious and asked carefully, “His Majesty came this late, did… something important happen?
Scott was unhappy to see him now. He snorted coldly and asked, “Where’s Yi Nuo?”
“His Royal Highness is asleep.” Yue Zhan replied.
Scott ignored his words and said directly, “I’ll go in and take a look.”
As he said that, he lifted his foot, intending to walk towards the indoor beach.
Yue Zhan hurriedly stopped him and said in a neither humble nor arrogant tone, “His Royal Highness just fell asleep. What’s the matter with Your Majesty? It can be discussed tomorrow.”
After a pause, he added: “If Your Majesty is in a hurry, I can call him.”
Scott was very upset when he heard this. He thought to himself, my son and I belong to the same family, and you haven’t got the certificate yet.
After thinking about it, he insisted on walking over.
But Yi Nuo was in a mermaid state at the moment. How could Yue Zhan let him in?
The two confronted each other for a while. Scott was furious, so he directly used his identity to pressure Yue Zhan and said angrily, “Yue Zhan, are you trying to rebel?”
As they were deadlocked, Yi Nuo suddenly called.
Yue Zhan subconsciously answered the call and heard the little prince complain in a sticky tone, “Yue Zhan, come here quickly. There are also small crabs in the pool, and they are pinching my tail.”
“Tail?!” Scott glared at him angrily.
Yue Zhan: “Damn!”
Yi Nuo: “Why do you swear? Is there someone next to you?”
Scott pushed Yue Zhan aside and rushed over directly.
Yue Zhan hurriedly chased after him, and at the same time said to Ino, “Your Highness, His Majesty has passed.”
Yi Nuo: “Damn!”
He quickly turned back into a human, with five or six small crabs on his ten toes, and limped ashore to put on a bath towel.
When Yue Zhan arrived, he saw the emperor standing on the shore, staring blankly at the little prince. And the little prince… was fighting with the little crabs on his feet.
Yue Zhan let out a sigh of relief, thinking to himself, it’s good, we’re not exposed.
He glanced at the emperor, passed directly by the other side, walked to the little prince, squatted down, and helped him pull the crabs.
Scott came over at some time, lowered his head, and murmured, “Your mother used to be like this. Small crabs often pinched her tail when she was sleeping. I helped her free her tail every time.”
Yi Nuo & Yue Zhan: “…” The atmosphere suddenly stopped being beautiful.
Yi Nuo glanced at him, pretended to be confused, and asked, “What tail? Does the mother have a tail?”
Scott’s eyes turned red at some point, and he suddenly said in a trembling voice, “My dear child…”
Yi Nuo jumped back in fright and almost fell off the chair.
Yue Zhan hurriedly grabbed him and said, “Be careful.”
Scott’s affectionate emotions were interrupted instantly, and he became dissatisfied. He said to Yue Zhan: “I have something to say to Yi Nuo. You go out first.”
Yi Nuo argued, “Why do you let him go out?”
Seeing this, Scott was even more upset with Yue Zhan. But he somehow remembered that he had quarreled with Yi Nuo not long ago. The father and son relationship needed to be repaired, so he calmed down and coaxed, “Yi Nuo, be good. I’m your father, and Dad wants to talk to his son. Of course, outsiders…”
Yi Nuo immediately interrupted, “Then he is still my dear old attack, not an outsider.”
After saying that, he blushed. He was just trying to choke the emperor on purpose, but he didn’t expect to say this title casually.
Yue Zhan was also stunned for a moment and then lowered his head to hide the smile in his eyes.
Scott had mixed feelings in his heart. He thought that Yue Zhan had secretly deceived Yi Nuo, so he had to be in a relationship with him. He thought that if he could help his son vent, he might be able to coax him back. Unexpectedly, the young couple was really in love.
After thinking about it, he felt even worse. Before he got along with his dear child, the big-tailed wolf abducted the good cub, and he himself married him out. This was really… horrendous.
Scott couldn’t wait for someone to drive Yue Zhan out immediately. It was better for him to rush to Blue Star and guard the front line for a lifetime.
But he also knew that if he did this, Yi Nuo would probably hate him for the rest of his life.
Therefore, he could only think about it in his heart and had to face reality.
Since Yi Nuo refused to let Yue Zhan go, he could only speak in front of him to not deteriorate the father-son relationship.
“Nuo Nuo, in fact, there’s something that father only learned about today. It’s about your life experience…” Scott said thoughtfully.
When Yi Nuo heard this, he immediately looked at him vigilantly, and Yue Zhan also frowned.
Scott felt pain in his heart, but he continued to say, “Your mother is not actually Queen Delan, but Li Ya, the little princess of the Sea Country. I’ve always thought you were born by the queen and someone else, so I was indifferent to you. But I only learned today that the queen stole you from me, and you are my son.”
Yi Nuo: “?” So you thought I wasn’t your own? Can you still think so?
“I was wrong. I didn’t know the truth at that time. Nuo Nuo, can you forgive Dad?” Scott lowered his stance and even used the common and special title of “Dad” to try to make the relationship closer.
After speaking, he was afraid that Yi Nuo would feel morally kidnapped, so he quickly added, “It doesn’t matter if you don’t forgive me. Dad will compensate you in the future and treat you well. I will be very, very good to you…”
Seeing this, Yue Zhan couldn’t help being a little surprised.
Hearing this, Yi Nuo breathed a sigh of relief and frowned, “So that’s what happened.”
“…Ah?” Scott’s affectionate tone ended abruptly.
Yi Nuo said, “I already knew.”
Scott was shocked: “?”
Yi Nuo: “But I was afraid you would arrest me for research, so I didn’t say it at the time. But you already know it, so it’s okay to say it.”
“Boy, why do you think so?” Scott was shocked and said, “Is there anyone inciting disharmony? The queen, it must be the queen. She stole you, which made me think that you were not biological…”
“Don’t slander the queen mother.” Yi Nuo frowned and interrupted him, saying, “It’s Li… Ya who told the queen that someone in the high ranks of the empire was studying mermaids. The queen just misunderstood that it might be you. She was also kind…”
“But if it wasn’t for her, our father and son would not have been separated for many years”, Scott said angrily.
“But haven’t I been living in the palace all the time?” Yi Nuo carefully analyzed, “Don’t put the blame on others. If you didn’t intend to marry someone else, got angry with Li Ya, and robbed the eggs, I wouldn’t have separated from my parents. In fact, you are the source of this problem.”
