Chapter 49 – Was Appointed by the Prince
Xu Miaoyin softly said: “This Concubine does not dare to receive His Highness’ grace.”
Then she asked: “Is Your Highness going to go the Royal Court Hall?”
Zhu Feng shook his head as it made Xu Miaoyin stunned, and she heard him faintly said: “Let them wait a little bit longer.”
Ye Zheng, standing on the side, was also somewhat stupefied.
These days, because none of the officials went to the court, Yan Wang had made several ammunition. Because yesterday they burned the memorial of the cabinet, today they finally queued up in the royal court. But Zhu Feng was not anxious at all.
Is he intending to give them a cold shoulder?
Xu Miaoyin was somewhat stun. She said softly: “Your Highness, but…”.
Before Xu Miaoyin could finish her words, He Yi smiled and said: “Wangfei doesn’t need to worry about it. Anyway, it feels so hot right now so let’s cool down our body in this room instead.”
Looking at his carefree appearance, Zhu Feng was not angered as he didn’t want to lose his calm composure.
Xu Miaoyin softly said: “Alright.”
Zhu Feng looked at Xu Miaoyin and said: “You can leave first. This Prince and He Yi have something else to talk about. Also call Cui Yuanmei to come over.”
Xu Miaoyin and Ye Zheng left Wu Ying Hall. After a moment, Cui Yuanmei which was praised in Yan Wang Palace entered Wu Ying Hall, after that the door was tightly closed.
Although Zhu Feng did not say anything to her, Xu Miaoyin knew he was hiding something from his tone. Because they were childhood friend she after all knew almost everything about him. Now that the Emperor had already died, Yan Wang’s ascending to the throne was only a matter of time.
Those civils and military officials were probably going to employ something. It was a grand event that would happen before them, and all this problem must be solved in a short time. That is why Wang Ye let He Yi and Cui Yuanmei come together, it was a matter of deliberation.
And this kind of thing, as a woman she could naturally not take part in.
Xu Miaoyin walked under the sunshine. Ye Zheng followed and Suddenly she asked: “Ye Zheng, last night, Wang Ye opened the Imperial Library and burned the imperial edicts. Who gave this idea to Wang Ye ?”
Ye Zheng was stunned and busy: “This… this puny servant does not know.”
“So, who was the first one to move?”
Ye Zheng hesitated and he whispered: “Si Nan Yan.”
“Si Nan Yan?” Xu Miaoyin contemplate inwardly as this name was a bit familiar: “Is it the girl who served Wang Ye before? “
“Who has chosen such a girl to Wang Ye?”
Ye Zheng hesitated again. This time he hesitated a little bit longer. Xu Miaoyin stared back at him and Ye Zheng immediately said: “Yes, she was appointed by Wang Ye.”
Xu Miaoyin stunned for a moment, then she laughed: “Hahaha… Interesting! Before this, Wang Ye had never cared about this kind of thing even a bit”.
Ye Zheng hurriedly accompanied her to laugh: “In the past, in Peiping, Wangfei had take care of the affairs of the palace regardless of its importance. Whether they were large and small works, everything was neat and order. This time, when Wang Ye entered the palace, even trivial matter was not watch over, so he had to take care of it himself”
Xu Miaoyin laughed as she smirked: “You should be beaten after saying all of this.”
Ye Zheng hastily knelt down and said: “Wangfei, please spares this lowly life!”
Xu Miaoyin watched him kneel before her eyes and couldn’t help laughing again: “Get up, it seems like you really want to get beaten, moreover, only Wang Ye can beat you. Who do you think this princess is ?”
When Ye Zheng just got up from the ground. Xu Miaoyin spoke again: “Since Wang Ye has appointed her, she must have outstanding skill to dwell in it. This Princess had little interest on her. Alright, you take me to see the residence first, as all of my servants will arrive in two days. So, You have to prepare these things.”
Ye Zheng laughingly, said: “This little one knows that the princess is coming. So, I have told the maids to clean out the six East Palaces of the Yonghe Palace. Now, they are simply waiting for Wangfei to inspect them.”
