No. Obviously, it is a good thing for Yunting. She does not need to stay in this court any longer. She was no longer a slave. She should be happy for her.
But why did she keep feeling pain in her heart….?
Is this the true feeling of pain and bitterness?
Comparing their individual situations inside of the Lateral Court, Nan Yan was filled with bitterness; Xia Yunting had the completely opposite mood.
Two maids helped Xia Yunting to slowly walk into the Shou An Palace. As she looked up, she saw the exquisitely carved beams and painted rafters. Furthermore, there were also beautiful furnishings inside. It was like walking into a totally different world.
This was not the same place as the “Imperial Palace” that she had been staying in earlier.
Originally, the Imperial Palace was divided into different places. No, it should be said that it was divided based on the different people who lived inside the palace.
Different people meant different places.
Xia Yunting was pleasantly surprised to see the things around her. Although she still felt some discomfort in her body, that little bit of discomfort did not lessen her joy at all. Especially as she remembered the morning’s events, when she watched Yan Wang’s handsome sleeping face under the sunshine.
Behind her stood two palace maids, one was called Xique and the other one Fulan. Seeing her shy appearance, they could roughly guess what had happened.
Fulan hastily said, “Young Lady Xia, His Highness has told us to let you live here first. If there is anything you lack, please be patient and wait for two days. At that time, there would be a better place for you.”
Xia Yunting actually didn’t really understand, why she had to wait for two days. But since it was His Highness Yan Wang’s order, then there was nothing left to say.
She nodded with a smile, “Fine.”
Xique also joined the conversation as she said, “Wangfei has also told us to let Young Lady Xia take a bath first. This slave has already prepared the hot water, may Young Lady Xia please come with us.”
“Alright.” Xia Yunting followed them.
Zhu Feng looked at the petitions lying on the table coldly. Yesterday, he had opened and read their contents. But now, he did not even have the mood to look at them.
“Take them away.”
Hearing him say so, Ye Zheng hurriedly removed those petitions.
From outside the door of Imperial Canopy Hall, upon seeing the situation, had a faint smile as he asked, “Why does Wangye seem to be in a bad mood?”
Zhu Feng glanced at him.
He Yi shook his head and said, “As a matter of fact, Wangye should have had a good rest last night.”
Ye Zheng was placing the petitions into the grid, hearing this remark he could not help but look back.
Zhu Feng’s face became even gloomier after hearing what He Yi had said.
When he got up this morning, he found out that he had spent his night with the palace maid who had came to serve him.
That palace maid called Xia or something was unexpectedly lying on his shoulder, incessantly and shyly speaking about her love and admiration for him, making Zhu Feng’s head want to explode.
To be honest, he had forgotten everything he did last night.
Last night, he only remembered that he had been tormented by the nightmare which was worse than before. At that time, he only wanted to catch a person who could relieve him. But how did it turn to be that person surnamed Xia?
He clearly remembered that the person who could relieve him of his dream was…
At this thought, his eyebrows knitted even more.
Damn! Even if you remember, could it be… could it be that you hoped it was Si Nan Yan?
When he woke up in the morning, he had found the maid leaning on his shoulder and he thought that she had mistakenly gotten onto his bed. At first he was very shocked, as if he had seen a ghost, then became angry. He cooled down quickly though as he realised he did not have any reason to be angry at her because it was his own mistake thinking that she was someone else.
Such a lowly woman. How could he have thought about her?
He Yi stood beside him, looking at the cold expression on his face. He did not know what Zhu Feng was thinking.
“His Highness had to go meet Jian Tongguang today.”
Zhu Feng coldy replied, “Alright.”
“I wonder who His Highness intends to take with him?”
