When Yu Gonggong arrived at the Chun Xi Palace, he saw Nan Yan, lying on the bed. She was dozing off and the corner of her mouth was gleaming with a little saliva. He could not help felt that she was funny yet pitiful.
Thereupon, he awaken her and ordered her to go to the Shou An Palace to have dinner with His Majesty and Zhaoyi.
Nan Yan was surprised.
“Gonggong, is this not unnecessary ?Zhaoyi only spoke courteously, in addition, I am only a Female Officer. How can I sit with His Majesty and Zhaoyi to eat a meal ?”
“The words were said byZhaoyi, but the order came from His Majesty.”
Yu Gonggong added to persuade her again.
“Stop dilly-dallying, His Majesty and Zhaoyi are still there and are waiting for you “
Nan Yan felt that she had barely woke up only to be thrown into a more frightening nightmare.
Not to mention that ever since this morning when she had eaten those cold leftover of roast meat, she had felt a little uncomfortable. Naturally, she could not eat at all, also, including that she had to sit with His Majesty at the table to dine. With so many rules, she will certainly need to be more cautious. What is even more frightening than dining with His Majesty ? If this word is spread out and every ladies will aware, how can she will be still left live ?
She reasoned out with a bitter face.
“Gonggong, let us just forget about it.”
“Alright, stop talking rubbish.”
Yu Gonggong pushed her out of the Chun Xi Palace.
“Move along, also one more advice. In the future, do not to speak about wanting to defy the Imperial decree or say that you have been dawdling.”
In the end, Nan Yan has no choice but to go to the Shou An Palace .
As soon as she passed the door, she immediately catch the sight of the round table filled with delicacies. Zhu Feng and Xia Yunting were already sitting at the table, waiting for her. Furthermore, Fulan were behind them while both of Xique’s hands were holding the porcelain plates, waiting to serve them.
Nan Yan promptly knelt on the ground.
“This servant greets His Majesty and greets Zhaoyi.”
Zhu Feng looked down at her and pointed out.
“How come you arrived only now ?”
Nan Yan’s heat complained bitterly but she did not she dared speak truthfully. Else, she would have told that her back was still greatly swollen which cause her to walk like a duck, so how could her pace be quick.
Respectfully, she bowed her head and lightly stress the words out.
“This servant… This servant dares not to be favor.”
Zhu Feng’s eyebrows wrinkled.
“Your Majesty is kind and mighty, but Nan Yan is just a servant.”
“How could this servant dare to eat with His Majesty and Zhaoyi, in the same place ?”
Zhu Feng’s face was originally calm, but at this moment, it sank down as he coldly said.
“You think Zhen wants you to come here.”
“It is Zhaoyi who cares about you. “
Then, he coldly turned his head as Nan Yan frowned. She did not know what to say for a moment, but Xia Yunting walked over and helped her up,
“Nan Yan, I know what you are worried about. However, since His Majesty has already consent, you should not refuse.”
Then, she pressed her on the shoulder to let her sit down.
Nan Yan’s buttocks was still greatly swollen. Thus, the moment she sat down, she immediately felt the pain which made her shed some tears.
Because she was afraid that people might see such a thing, she could only lower her head to hide it.
Zhu Feng did not even glance at her, while Xia Yunting lightly ordered.
“Serve the food.”
Although the current table was full of delicacies, but she was still considering what she thought before. It felt shameful to eat, in certain degree with so many rules. Although Nan Yan was also born from prestigious clan, her table manners was natural good when she eats and sits. But, with His Maesty sitting beside her and his body emitting waves full of chill, the delicious food felt rather tasteless even if it normally tastes good.
As she looked up, she saw Xia Yunting’s soft gaze like a spring water, glancing at Zhu Feng.
She hurriedly bowed her head and picked a piece of meat near her, when suddenly, her stomach felt nauseous.
In the morning, because she ate those cold leftovers it made her stomach uncomfortable. Currently, the table is full of lavishing meals. Although it looked good, the plates were too greasy, making her more and more uncomfortable.
