He Yi spoke: “This, His Highness shall have respect for the wise.”
Zhu Feng frowned: “Do you want this king to invite him personally?”
Outside the door came a very light knocking noise, Zhu Feng said: “Come in”
The moment the door opened, the court officials’ pleadings were naturally heard from outside. Xiao Kouzi didn’t speak and slowlyhe just walked in.
Behind him, followed a slender figure.
Zhu Feng looked at them, he had originally lowered his head to ignore them and yet he looked up again. Seeing a different maidservant behind Xiao Kouzi, he immediately ask, “Who is she ? “
Xia Yunting looked up, foolishly casting a glance and promptly kneeled to the ground.
Xiao Kouzi hurriedly said, “Your Highness, this maid has joined the Lateral Courts a few days ago as a Female Attendant, her name is Xia Yunting.
TLN: Lateral courts – the harem residence
Zhu Feng wrinkled, “Where is Si Nan Yan ? ”
Xia Yunting had never seen Yan Wang, but just his aura already made her trembling uncontrollably. She hurriedly said, “Nan Yan has caught a cold, and was worried to delay his Highness’ work, so… ”
“She caught a cold ? Yesterday, she was fine. Why did she suddenly catch a cold today ? ”
He Yi also could not help but look back at them.
When Yan Wang’s question fall onto Xia Yunting made her already unsteady legs nearly making her kneel.
Looking at them carefully, Zhu Feng also felt a bit dull. He recalled that Si Nan Yan was on duty for two nights. It probably truly pushed her to the limit and she felt sick.
He coldly said, “Useless.”
Listening to what he said, Xiao Kouzi and Xia Yunting hurriedly kowtowed to apologize, and then walked to his side quietly.
Zhu Feng no longer pay any attention to them, and continue towards He Yi as he said: “Did you just mean that ? “
He Yi nodded, “Right.”
Zhu Feng brows once again frowned.
He is a prince from military origin and of noble status. He never liked to deal with those scholar, always feeling that they handle job boringly. Now, He Yi unexpectedly wanted him to loosen his pride and degrade his honour as a Prince to meet this scholar personally.
When He Yi saw him hesitated, he said, “Wang Ye, they attach great importance to this major event.”
Zhu Feng thought about it and said, “Well, let the guards prepare for tomorrow…”
“Wang Ye, if you are going to see Jian Tongguang, I am afraid it will not good to bring too many people.”
“So, what do you suggest?”
“Wang Ye only need to dress simply to visit him and bring two people around.”
“Too many people following inevitably put pressure on others.”
“Wang Ye, Old Jian is living secular, but all the scholars in the world are watching it.”
Zhu Feng thought for a while, then nodded his head, “Nevermind.”
When he finished, he got up and walked out. Yet, Xia Yunting was standing still.
Xiao Kouzi hit her elbow. She stopped daydreaming, and hurriedly followed Yan Wang.
Zhu Feng walked to the door and opening it, the court officials who were kneeling on the ground came out to see him. Immediately after, they pound their heads to the ground, strongly shouting, “His Royal Highness, Your servant request earnestly to your Highness to ascend to the throne.”
“Your Highness, your country cannot not be ruled by a king for a day. But Your Highness will be valued by the Jian Shan as the country attach more importance to it.”
“Your servant is asking His Highness to ascend the throne ! “
Zhu Feng look at them coldly and said: “You can all get up and go back. This Prince has said that this prince did all these things only for the sake of peace and in order to clear the rebellion. There is no ruler in the country today. You should look for other virtuous men.”
“It is needless to talk more, you can all go back.”
Those court officials were unable to give another reason and could only helplessly get up and leave.
Zhu Feng looked at these people reluctant to go. Remembering the situation the past few days, in the Imperial Canopy Hall were it was completely deserted, his eyes were cold.
But to Xia Yunting, standing behind him and looking at the handsome with loathe face was, at this moment, shining in the sunlight. She could not move away from this sight for a long time.
