“What do you mean by odd ?”
“You see my lady… This concubine heard that this Si Nan Yan was Xia Yunting’s close friend. Previously, she served as a female attendant. Afterwards, she was not registered as a slave. Then, after Xia Yunting entered the Harem, she became close to His Highness by becoming a Female Officer. ”
“Moreover, this concubine also heard that this Si Nan Yan has served His Highness on night duty before he was enthroned. This matter had stirred up quite a bit of trouble.”
“Ultimately, this woman does not have a birth record. However, this concubine feels that with her current history , there is no guarantee that she is clean !”
Wu Wan’s eyes were full of hostility.
“In conclusion, these two sluts are cunning and want to get close to His Highness in order to get promoted right ?”
Gao Yu Rong softly remarked, “If this is true then it would be very problematic.”
“My Lady, this concubine heard this time that Si Nan Yan has lost the High Advisor Ministry’s key which created a big commotion in the palace. As this matter was related to the Imperial Jade Seal, so she also offended Jing Wang. Yet, His Highness has only ordered her to be beaten with twenty strokes of plank. In addition, he granted her permission to stay in Shou An Palace to recuperate.”
“I am afraid that His Highness cares about her.”
Wu Wan got so angry that she could only manage to sneer.
“Before, many of us had been wary of that slut, Qin Ruolan. But that bitch was discreet and did not make much noise either. Now that her influence has already decreased, there is now two more foxes that have come.”
She squeezed hard her fist and cold heartedly uttered, “Then, let’s get rid of these sluts !”
Gao Yu Rong frowned.
“My Lady, if those two are really this cunning, then it might not be a good thing to go after them.”
Wu Wan thought about it for a moment before saying.
“Everyone has a weakness. Find someone to investigate them for me !”
At this time, Nan Yan decided to finally get out of Chun Xi Palace as she was starting to feel moldy.
Formerly, everyday she was by Zhu Feng’s side and working nonstop to the point that she used to complain all the time about going to sleep very late at night. She was happy to finally have some leisure days, but she now felt uncomfortable.
She truly felt useless !
With this kind of thoughts, she could not help but knock her head.
“Whose fault is it that she is like this !”
Taking advantage of the cloudy morning, she went out for a stroll as the sun was not too strong. On her way, she took time to drop by the High Ministry Advisor Office for a short visit. After all, she had not come these past few days and did not know if His Highness needed had important decrees that needed to be stamped.
As she approached the Wu Ying Palace, she could catch from afar the sight of a tall figure coming nearer.
It was Jian Ruocheng.
He had changed his clothes into official robes. Compared to the time when she saw him at Jian’s Household, the robes he was wearing made him appear fresh and elegant. He currently looked even more dignified and a little more handsome.
Noticing Nan Yan’s presence, he immediately came to greet her.
“Miss Nan Yan.”
Nan Yan was very surprised to see him.
“Second Young Master ?”
As the two of them greeted each other, Jian Ruocheng smiled and said, “I just remembered that I should now call you Female Officer Si.”
Nan Yan smiled as she looked at his Official’s robe that seemed similar to He Yi’s, then smirked.
“Then should I call you Right Assistant Minister?”
Jian Ruocheng lowered his head and looked at his attire, laughing.
“Nothing can be hidden from the eyes of Female Officer Si.”
He had recently accepted the nomination as Right Assistant Palace Secretary.
Then Nan Yan said to him, “This is your first step into an official’s career. Yet, you already have such a great achievement by becoming the Right Assistant Officer, it is worthy of celebration.”
Jian Ruocheng replied, “I am not that great. It was all thanks to His Highness who made an exception and promoted me to this post.”
Nan Yan was stunned.
Before, when Zhu Feng went to the Jian’s Household, he almost destroyed the Ten Clans in his fury. She did not expect that he would do such a thing as promoting Jian Ruocheng as the Right Assistant Palace secretary.
He is truly magnanimous.
However, why does he always bother with trifling matters ? And when it comes to me, why is he never willing to let me off this easily ?
