Upon hearing what Ye Zheng said, Consort Kang’s face immediately became a little ugly.
Everyone knew the coral bracelet on their wrist were given to the harem by Zhu Feng. Since now Ye Zheng had said it, Si Nan Yan bracelet was not of unknown origin, could it be—-
The atmosphere immediately became subtle suddenly.
Originally, Xia Yunting was kneeling on the ground trembling. This time she turned head and took a look at the Nan Yan. She saw her face suddenly turned pale.
Wu Wan gritted her teeth and said, ” Oh? Where is that thing came from? “
Ye Zheng was about to speak, but Nan Yan interrupted,
“There was a problem with a knot of the bracelet. Lord Ye gave it to this servant to fix. “
Ye Zheng looked back at her.
Nan Yan also looked up at him, eyes flashing, before saying, “Lord Ye, isn’t it right?”
Ye Zheng was silent for a long time. He turned around with a complicated expression and said, “Yes.”
“Just like what female officer Si have said.”
The entire Shou An Palace turned into silence.
There was a subtle emotion in the hall, and all the people looked at their slightly red faces each other. Even the tip of Nan Yan’s ear turned red, She lowered her head to kowtow deeply but her fingertips were trembling.
After a long time, Xu Miaoyin said. “It turns out that is the case, in this case, Female Officer Si you should have said it earlier. If you had said it, there would have been no such thing. “
Nan Yan kowtowed the spoke. “Please forgive this servant, Your Highness. This servant—–this servant forgets for a moment.”
“You, stand up.”
“……”“This incident has brought trouble to you and caused you grievance.”
“Your Highness has eyes sharp enough to perceive an animal’s autumn dawn. This servant didn’t feel any grievance at all. “
“Since the emperor has asked you to accompany him to Yong Province, then you must get ready and leave tomorrow.”
Nan Yan quickly got up and bowed to the people around her, then withdrew from Shou An Palace.
Wu Wan looked at her back and was a little worried. ” Your Highness, she -“
Xu Miaoyin said coldly.”This matter has been cleared up. Don’t say more!”
Wu Wan looked pale and bowed her head.“Yes.”
Nan Yan went to Chun Xi Hall to tidy up her things, suddenly Chun Er came over and returned her jewelry box to her.
Then, she left Shou An Palace with her things.
Just out of the gate of Shou An Palace, she saw Ye Zheng standing in front waiting for her. Nan Yan said nothing and walked in silence. Ye Zheng also didn’t speak anything and accompanied her back to Lateral Court.
After walking for a while, Ye Zheng finally spoke, ” You have suffered a lot these two days.”
Nan Yan lowered her head: ” Not really.”
Ye Zheng looked at the injured corners of her mouth and the slight bruises on her neck and knew that it must not be easy. But looking at the way she closed her lips, she would not say much.
He thought for a moment before he said. “I’ve been out of the palace for business these two days and I don’t know about it. But you, why didn’t you tell them? “
” I gave you that coral bracelet that day, why didn’t you tell them?”
Ye Zheng thought for a moment and said, ” Do you doubt me?”
Nan Yan lowered her head and said softly, “I’m sorry.”
“It happened so suddenly that I —- I didn’t understand it at all.”Ye Zheng listened and sighed softly.
Indeed, the incident came too suddenly. He handed the coral beads to Nan Yan. It happened that there was a theft case immediately afterward. Nan Yan would suspect him at that time along harem conspiring against her, which was also understandable.
After all, he and the concubines were all an old people of Yan Palace, except Xia yunting who became a concubine of Yan Palace in earlier and while the other concubines had known him for a long time.
Nan Yan murmured, “Ye Zheng, I’m sorry.”
