Chapter 41 – Almost Missed It!
Those small eunuchs are dumbfounded: “Yu-Gonggong!?”
“This is the emperor’s order, do it, do it quickly.”
They were still hesitant, but seeing that Yu-Gonggong had yielded. They could only do what they were ordered, and they soon poured the tung oil onto the memorial.
Soon, the tung oil soaked the memorials. The oil slowly flowed onto the ground and converged into a thread that slowly flowed into the corner.
At this time, the sky was already dark.
A piece of light was lit up behind him. Nan Yan looked around and saw a few eunuchs carrying burning lanterns who were cautiously and solemnly standing aside to serve.
Zhu Feng coldly spoke: “Burn.”
Hearing his order, everyone immediately threw the torch in their hand to the pile of memorials.
They heard a loud “Boom”. A ball of fire exploded in the courtyard and turned into a black smoke. It went straight into the sky. Because Nan Yan stood so close just now, she felt in her bosom a burst of heat wave rushed over therefore patted herself to cool it down and was about to fall.
Before she could respond, a hand was stretched out and pulled her collar.
She gave a low cry, and stumbled back two paces, then bumped into a solid chest. Looking back hastily, it was Zhu Feng.
He was looking at the blaze in front of him coldly.
‘He– saved me?’
Nan Yan simply dared not to believe
Zhu Feng did not look at her, but looked at the burning flames in front of him. That handsome face like a sculpture seemingly gazed at the fire with a profound meaning.
Here are all memorials since the accession of Emperor Xiao.
That is to say, from the courtiers sought to cut down the vassal powers, and later set up many obstacles around the palace of Wang Yan in Peiping.
Until he started to fight, he gave advice to the emperor when he was fighting all the way.
All the “evidence” was stacked here, but he didn’t open it and deliberately put on the torch
In fact, it was a bit of a risk to him.
He wanted to use these things to clear up the opposing officials between the two countries.
But now, in order to take the overall situation into consideration, he can only endure for a time.
For the time being!
When he thought of it, he bit his teeth hard and clenched his fist.
Nan Yan stood in front of him, still somewhat scared. If he hadn’t pulled her, she was afraid that she would have been engulfed by flames now.
But, why did he save her?
She could not help looking up to Zhu Feng, but saw him watching the flames with cold eyes that blinked without blinking.
“This Prince just doesn’t want you to die so fast”
“You’d better not die so fast.”
Nan Yan bit her lip, her head down leaning to his side.
The fire was burning
All the people around stared at this scene.
At this time, Zhu Feng suddenly said, “Now, what do you think?”
Nan Yan stunned for a moment and turned to look at him, but seeing that he still looked straight ahead at the billowing smoke and flames. She hesitated for a moment before she responded. This problem was followed by that question in the hall that day.
Nan Yan thought, lowered her head and whispered: “Is Wang Ye generous and benevolent?
Is there any reason why the people do not support it?
At this time, Zhu Feng slowly turned around and looked down at her.
This young woman looked more and more petite in the firelight. The thick black eyelid covered the eye but it can’t cover up the flickering light within it.
It was like that night, in the fire of the Tai Palace her eyes were as bright as this.
It’s too bad to miss it.
Zhu Feng suddenly reached out her hand and lifted up her chin.
