Chapter 22 – Who Let Him Out of the City?
Feeling that her footsteps were heavy, Zhu Feng looked back at her, but said nothing. He turned around and went into the Imperial Palace hall.
What differed from yesterday was that the interior of the Imperial Palace hall was not empty, but there were several high ranking generals waiting in the hall. All of them followed Zhu Feng on his campaign year after year. This time it was from Peiping all the way to Jinling and ever since they remained his trusted aides.
As soon as they saw Zhu Feng, they immediately bowed to the ground. “Wang Ye.”
Zhu Feng waved his hand and said:
Zhu Feng walked a few paces. When he got to the front to sit down, he looked at them again and suddenly said:
“What about He Yi?”
Nan Yan could not help but look up. Among the crowd she did not see the figure of He Yi.
Those military commanders also looked at her. She also looked at them, then someone said:
“Who knows where that old daoist has gone? That fellow is always nagging all day long. “
“Exactly, anyway he is not here, but it does not matter.”
“Besides if Wang Ye has something to say, just explain it.”
These people were all capable men who followed and fought with him, all the way during his campaign. In the military, there was not so much feelings of superiority or inferiority. These people did not put He Yi in their eyes, because they felt that only killing the enemy on the battlefield. Only a sword, a double edge sword, using it to stake their lives. That was how you earn meritorious services. And not like him, just blowing wind in the ear of Wang Ye was counted as meritorious service.
Zhu Feng knew they did not look at and found each other unpleasing to the eyes, but he did not say much. He just looked at the crowd that was without He Yi’s figure. He frowned.
Actually, there was a young high-ranking general named Wen Ye who said:
“In the early morning, he seemed to be going out of the palace, and I heard he was going out of the city.”
“Out of the city? Who let him out of the city? “
No one spoke.
Zhu Feng’s eyebrows were wrinkled even more tightly, because the identity of He Yi was special. He never restricted his action when he was in Peiping. But at this time, when he needs advice from person by his side, he suddenly left the city.
Could it be that it was important, he really had to leave?
After a moment’s of thought, he lightly waved his hand, and said:
“Alright, today this Prince gathered you here to discuss the problems inside and outside Jinling City.”
Nan Yan stood behind him and silently listened.
Although Zhu Feng had already taken down Jinling City, he did not dare to take it lightly. He let the night go by adding manpower to control every checkpoint in the city. Then let two other military commanders immediately led the troops to control the two large camps outside Jinling City.
Furthermore in Hebei province, Shandong province and other regions, the imperial military forces resisted against his army. He needed to send people to deal with those people.
Nan Yan could barely understand what he was saying at the very beginning, but the more she listened, the more confusion she felt. This military thing wasn’t something women could easily understand.
How long did they talk, how long did she stand?
When they finally finished talking about the major events, they looked up again and the sky was dark.
It has been a day.
Nan Yan was completely shocked. She did not think he would not even moisten his mouth with water once. He was busy all day.
Finally, the major event was finished, those major generals were also dizzy. In the past, they used to fight in the war and even slaughtered people. Whenever they wanted to do this now, they had to consider so many things. They frowned one by one.
However, as they passed the ceremony and prepared to turn away, Zhu Feng suddenly said:
Everyone stopped again and looked back at him.
Zhu Feng reached for the tea bowl on the table, opening it, and found that it had dried up.
