The night passed.
Zhu Feng pushed open the door of the Wu Ying Palace and the wind came in from behind. Then, he saw the curtain floating slightly. Behind it, on that big bed, a humble servant were still sleeping on her stomach with a pillow under it.
In the main hall, the woman whispered softly.
Zhu Feng slowly walked past and as he just walked to the bedside, he heard her murmurs.
“So painful… “
“So painful… “
She is talking in her sleep.
In her dreams, she was also feeling hurt.
He remained silent for a moment, before reaching over and pulled away a strand of hair from her forehead. He saw the pale little face beneath it, slightly frowning. It seemed that she was still suffering from pain, the long eyelashes on the thin eyelids above appeared even more weak and slender than usual.
He also did not know where her courage came from at that time.
Thinking of this, there was another unexplained anger in his heart as he had not slept well last night. Moreover, he was getting impatient, even if she faced him stubbornly with all her might.
Just like this, his hand suddenly felt like burning charcoal and he immediately pulled back.
What am I doing?
At that time, Nan Yan, which was originally trapped in a nightmare, was tormented by pain, faintly opened her eyes, and then saw the tall figure in front of her.
She was not very awake, and murmured: “Who hit me?”
“Why did you beat me?”
She grumbled and complained, her cheeks were burning and clearly beaten.
Zhu Feng’s eyebrows tightened more tightly.
“What are you talking about ?”
“Zhen will personally beat you again ?”
The sound of his cold voice thoroughly awakened Nan Yan completely from her half awake state.She opened her eyes and fixed her eyes on him. Indeed, it was the Emperor standing in front of her.
She hurried to get up.
“This slave servant——”
She did not finished what she was saying when she felt an excruciating in her back. She fell down on the bed again.
There was a cold sweat on her forehead. She struggled in an ugly posture:
“Your Majesty, this slave servant——”
“Yes,” she looked in a difficult situation, Zhu Feng frowned and impatiently said.
“You are entirely beaten. What are you trying to do ? Zhen lets you properly lie on here.”
“Lie down !”
She could only lie down quietly.
Then, she discovered where she slept—— She slept on the Wu Ying Palace’s bed !
Here, was the place where the Emperor sleeps. Is this His Highness sleeping chamber ?
She actually slept on the Imperial bed ?!
Suddenly she broke into a cold sweat and did not know what to say. However, Zhu Feng looked down at her for a while before saying.
“You are not afraid of losing the High Advisor Ministry’s key. Yet, you are afraid to sleep on Zhen’s bed.”
Nan Yan bites her lower lip.
“This slave servant is guilty.”
“Guilty ? Of course you are guilty !”
Zhu Feng said, couldn’t help looking at her again, looking at her brow which was slightly frowned up because of pain. He became silent for a while and then asked:
“You… For what reason have you said that ?”
Nan Yan looked up at him and said softly:
“Because this slave servant dared to guess that the Emperor did not want to promulgate the Imperial edict.”
“Because Your Majesty usually early drafted an Imperial edict. Then, ordered Ye Zheng to send the edict to High Advisor Ministry. But, yesterday, it was asked to this slave servant to take the Imperial Jade Seal to the Imperial Garden.”
“Slave servant though that Your Majesty has other ideas. So——”
She said, carefully looking at Zhu Feng’s eyes, and bowed her head.
“Everything is this slave servant bold thinking. Asking Your Majesty for forgiveness.”
Zhu feng did not speak immediately. He looked at her with a faint brow for a while, and then said.
“Where did you lose the key ?”
“Is still in the high advisor drawer.”
Zhu Feng was silent for a while and slowly said :
“From now on, take care of the key.”
“Do not lose it again and do not let Zhen beat you again.”
