Chapter 39 – When The Memorial Is Lost, It Will Cause Chaos!
As soon as he saw his expression, Nan Yan immediately guessed that it was something related to Zhu Feng, so she stepped forward and asked: “Ye Zheng, what’s wrong?
Ye Zheng frowned and said: “We must hurry to go there.”
Nan Yan did not hesitate, she immediately turned back to tell Xia Yunting that she need to go. Then, she followed Ye Zheng and leaved the courtyard.
Xia Yunting stood at the door and watched the two people hurry away. It took her awhile before turning back to her sense and go back to her room.
Nan Yan followed Ye Zheng outside, after walking for a while, she felt something was amiss.
“Ye Zheng, are we not going to His Highness’ palace?”
“But this road is not the way to Wu Ying Palace.”
“He is not in Wu Ying Palace.”
“Oh, and where is he?”
“At the Imperial library.”
Nan Yan walked two more steps, then she slowly turned over to see Ye Zheng. “The Imperial Library?”
Ye Zheng did not turned back and went forward: “Yes, and just now they said that not only did His Highness go there, but he also prepared a few barrels of tung oil. Heavens, what is he going to do? “
“The hall was burned without even leaving a tile., And it had not been repaired yet”
Nan Yan stopped on the spot, her mind turning quickly as Ye Zheng walked out a few steps and looked back at her: “Come on. If you are not going faster, I don’t know what will happen to the Imperial library. “
Nan Yan hesitated, but did not say anything, she only stepped up the pace and continued to follow him up.
The Imperial Library was a place inaccessible to anyone. Even compared with the Cold Palace and the Inner Palace, there were even fewer people here.
Only on the first day of each month, there will be a servant finishing last month’s memorial and moving it in to store it.
The Imperial Library was actually a place where memorials were kept.
Originally, this place should have been visited by many people because the emperor often wanted to see the ministers’ past petitions. At the end of each year, it was also necessary to summarize the gains and losses of this year from the memories stored in the Imperial Library.
TLN Memorials= Documents flowed down from the Emperor to officials, from officials to the Emperor, from one part of the bureaucracy to others, and from the Emperor or his officials to the people.
However, since Yan Wang started the rebellion and pressed Jinling step by step, the Emperor was somewhat out of control.
He no longer went to the Imperial Library and he did not want to see his memorials, even the faces of his attendants were gone. As he was hiding in the inner palace for fun every day, this place became little by little deserted.
And now, the doors to this large library has finally opened again.
The dust rose with the wind in it, choking everyone around to cough. Zhu Feng stood back at the door, and coldly said: “Keep moving.”
The servants did not dare to neglect their duty, and all the memorials within the past three years were moved out. They were piled up on a hill, in the open space, at the entrance of the cabinet.
On the two sides of the open space, there were several barrels of tung oil that had just been moved in.
Opening the library and pilling up the memorials. What exactly is Yan Wang trying to do?
At this very moment, Zhu Feng said: “Pour all the oil onto it.”
As soon as this was heard, all the people around were stunned.
Standing behind him, he looked at all these inner servants. The old eunuch Yu Gonggong fell down on his knees. “Your highness, you can’t burn the memorial. This is the rule set by the forefathers. If the memorial is lost, it will be chaos.”
