‘Chapter 27 – Dreams Kill
Lowly? Yes, lowly!’
When these two words appeared in his mind, he looked again at Si Nan Yan. Deep inside his heart, Zhu Feng sneered at her.
Feeling his gaze, Nan Yan did not know why she was feeling a little bit cold. The cold even penetrated all the way to the marrow and she could not help shivering.
Zhu Feng coldly looked away.
Although there were no ministers of civil and military affairs. Since conquering Jinling he actually had too many things to do. Perhaps, he could dispose of those important ministers afterwards. After a long busy day. Outside, the sun had already set.
In the meantime, Ye Zheng had also return to report back on his mission. Everything that he had explained about doing prior to the matter had been carried out.
Nan Yan was a bit worried he would really close down the city gates and inside the city’s walls, those ministers of civil and military offices would strike back treacherously. When she thought about that, she looked at him nervously.
However, she saw Zhu Feng closing the official document in his hands and going out of the hall.
Nan Yan followed him back to Wu Ying Hall nervously and saw that the supper was already set out. It was a simple meal table, composed of tea and food. The braised pork dish was the only meat dish on the table. The dishes did not look very delicately made and they only smell like the original taste of the food.
Yet, once she smelled the flavors, Nan Yan also knew that Zhu Feng would not kill anyone for the time being.
Because when people eat, it was the most harmless time.
She and Ye Zheng stood by the side to serve, and watched as Zhu Feng ate big mouthfuls of the simple meal. Even the sauces at the bottom of the dishes were mixed with rice and eaten.
This Wang Ye… He really does not pay particularly close attention to anything.
While waiting for Zhu Feng to finish his dinner, Ye Zheng said to Nan Yan:
“Miss Si, you can go and eat dinner first, you can come back later.”
Nan Yan looked at him strangely. At the same time, yesterday, did he not return himself and let her go back? Why does he want her to come back tonight?
Ye Zheng smiled and said:
“Miss Si, I was with Wang Ye last night. Are you going to let me stay up for two days straight.”
Nan Yan just remembered this fact. The emperor has imperial concubines of the harem who sleep with him at night and they were waited on by servants to tend to their needs. As for Yan Wang, of course he will not be an exception.
She hesitated, “I, I will not be able to do that.”
“Hey, what is so hard about being on night duty? Take a stool, sit there, and take a nap.
Seeing Nan Yan looking at him hesitantly, Ye Zheng’s eyes glanced around and moved closer to her ear whispering:
“Just, do not approach to closely to Wang Ye’s bed. You know that our Wang Ye was born for the military life and in his dreams he is fond of killing people!”
Nan Yan’s face suddenly became scared: “Really?”
Seeing her so frighten, Ye Zheng laughed and immediately said:
“I was only teasing you.”
“Our Wang Ye is not that meddlesome, you can rest assured. “
“In fact, although there are many people in the palace, this task simply cannot be given to just anyone. Wang Ye only lets you and I come, because he believes in us. “
Nan Yan looked distracted and turned to look at Zhu Feng. He was standing on the other side of the hall, with his broad shoulders and his fine waistline. Such a posture did not have a hint of romantic feelings, on the contrary, he looked just like a tall pine and cypress tree.
He… believes in me?
Ye Zheng yawned, covering his mouth with his hand, and then said:
“Miss Si, hurry up, go and eat then return after dinner. You see, I have been running all day long today, but I really cannot bear it.”
Ye Zheng was a few years younger than Nan Yan. His skin was bright and clean, and his appearance looked feminine. Maybe it is just because he was young but when he talked like this, he would inevitably take on the appearance of a little spoiled and mean person.
After knowing him for a day or two, the sight was so familiar.
Nan Yan was only able to say:
“Then, that is all right.”
She hurried to go eat something and changed her clothes. Afterwards, she came back to see the door of Wu Ying Hall uncovered. There was only a dim light reflecting on the windows.
Standing in front of the door, she hesitated.
