And because of this matter, she was afraid that Xia Yunting would have grudges against them even more.
She looked back at Gao Yu Rong. With her pale face, she still had an indifferent expression on it, but Nan Yan felt that her hands were actually sweating.
At this point, she could even bring Xia Yunting in and disappear from this fight, in addition, even planting a poisonous thorn between her and Xia Yunting.
It seemed that Gao Yu Rong was far less simple and easier to deal with than she thought.
Xu Miaoyin handed the box over to Chun Er’s hand, then looked down at Si Nan Yan, who was kneeling on the ground and had been silent all this time.
Then, she said, “Stand up, Female Officer Si.”
“It seems that this matter, I have indeed wronged you.”
Nan Yan glanced at Xia Yunting, who was still kneeling on the ground shivering next to her, and in a soft voice, “Her Highness has a pair of eyes that are sharp enough to perceive even an animal’s autumn hair. This servant should thank Her Highness.”
After those words, Nan Yan was about to get up from the ground, when suddenly, there was a distant voice heard from Consort Kang.
Nan Yan raised her head.
However, consort Kang gave her a cold look, then directly uttered, “Your Highness, it seems that this matter is not over yet.”
Nan Yan’s hands on the ground slightly quivered.
Xu Miaoyin looked at her quietly. “What is it?”
Consort Kang looked down at the jewelry box held by Chun Er in her hand, “That thing was found. What about the red coral bracelet of Female officer Si? “
When the words came out, although the people around didn’t speak anything, however, everyone’s eyes flashed slightly.
Obviously, everyone had a thought about it.
Imperial Concubine De Xin Qing, who had been quietly seated, suddenly spoke.
“Yes, Cong Kang is right. Since Xia Zhaoyi’s bracelet was not lost. What about that bracelet found in Chun Xi Hall before?”
Consort Kang also added, “If it’s somewhere else, it doesn’t matter if there’s something odd and something missing. But this is the imperial palace. It is not a place that is easily permitted to have something added or missing.”
“Besides, it’s a coral bracelet given by the Emperor.”
The Empress still remained calm, then looked at Nan Yan.
Her eyes seemed very gentle and slowly said, “Female Officer Si, you have heard the words of Consort Kang.”
“Can you clarify this matter?”
Nan Yan knelt on the ground with her head down, just literally silent.
At the side, Consort Kang’s eyes showed a fierce expression and said coldly, “If you can’t say it clearly. This could only mean you still stole it!”
Just then, a man came in from outside and bent over, “This humble servant greets Her Highness the Empress.”
This familiar voice made Nan Yan slightly twitch her shoulder, and she hurriedly looked back. She saw Ye Zheng’s familiar figure standing at the door, looked dazzling as the daylight was reflecting on him.
When Xu Miaoyin saw him, her eyes flashed slightly, then straight away asked, “Ye Zheng, what’s the matter?”
“This humble servant was ordered by the Emperor to come over to pass a message,”
Ye Zheng came in and looked at Nan Yan, “The Emperor will go to Yong Province. He ordered to bring you along.”
“You must prepare at once. “
All the people around Ye Zheng were stunned in disbelief.
“I’m afraid that would be impossible, Lord Ye.” Consort Kang hastily opposed.
Ye Zheng looked puzzled. “This humble servant doesn’t understand what consort Kang is saying.”
“There is a thing in her residence of unknown origin. We are questioning her.”
“What kind of thing is that consort Kang?” Ye Zheng refuted.
“A red coral bracelet.”
Upon hearing this, Ye Zheng smirked, “This humble servant can justify that Female Officer Si coral bracelet is not really of unknown origin.”
