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?”
This sentence poked Zhu Feng, and he looked at He Yi coldly. He Yi continued smiling and said: “It quite late now. Your Highness needs to decide as soon as possible.”
Zhu Feng stared a bit more, before replying: “Let Ye Zheng follow me.”
He Yi gave a blank look and asked: “Only him ?”
“You said that the fewer people the better, lest others think this Prince is using his authority to pressure people.”
After saying that, Zhu Feng stood up from the chair, and said to Ye Zheng: “You, tidy up immediately and follow this Prince out of the palace.”
Ye Zheng put the things in order, and hastily followed Zhu Feng.
Looking at their distant figures, He Yi gently shook his head. At this moment, Yu Gonggong came in and looked at He Yi: “Aye, are Zheng and the Prince going out ?”
“When will they come back? Do we have to prepare an evening meal for Wang Ye ?”
He Yi smiled lightly: “Just prepare it, they will soon come back.”
Yu Gonggong felt that He Yi’s smile had a slight mockery in it, but in the end, this person was from the Yan Palace and had been following Yan Wang for a long time. His words were still credible, and thus Yu Gonggong commanded the palace maids to prepare the food.
Sure enough, some time in the evening, Zhu Feng came back with a bleak expression.
He Yi asked: “His Highness, what’s the result?”
Zhu Feng did not speak, and Ye Zheng dejectedly said: “Don’t talk about it, I’ve been knocking on the door for half a day and yet no one came out. Don’t tell me that the people inside Jian Government had went out ?”
He Yi said: “Probably, you can wait until tomorrow to see.”
Zhu Feng looked at him coldly: “We’ll go again tomorrow then.”
After he had finished his supper, Zhu Feng returned to the Wu Ying Palace to rest. Ye Zheng was just hesitating to call Si Nan Yan to come over when he heard Zhu Feng’s cold words: “No need. This Prince doesn’t want to see her today.”
Ye Zheng didn’t dare to talk too much, so he sat down in the corner.
One sleepless night passed, and the next day they went out early to Zhaowen Workshop. Outside the house of Jian, precisely at dawn, Zhu Feng rode on horseback, leaving Ye Zheng to dismount and shout at the door.
This time was better than the last time though, as after shouting for half a day, finally came out a white-haired old man. He was a doorman, but his ears were so bad that he kept repeating the same words to the duo for a long time before finally realizing that they had wanted to visit Jiang Tongguang.
However, he also said: “The owner went out early and will not come back today. Can I suggest the two masters to go back please ?”
At the end of the talk, the door was closed.
Ye Zheng blinked his eyes, and turned back with a bit embarrassment, when he saw Zhu Feng’s face very grim. Zhu Feng abruptly turned the horse’s head with the reins and left, and Ye Zheng hurried to catch up.
They arrived at the Palace right at noon.
When He Yi heard about it, he laughed and said, “The ancient sages also used three humble visits to a thatched cottage before succeeding. Wang Ye might as well go there again tomorrow.
Zhu Feng’s face was really gloomy. It took a while before he said: “Well, tomorrow, This Prince will go for the last time.”
He Yi said: “Wang Ye does not need to be angry.”
Zhu Feng did not reply him, only pushing open the door into Imperial Canopy Hall.
The heat in the hall made him even more irritated.
HeYi walked behind him, and said softly: “His Highness, these two nights, did not sleep well?”
Zhu Feng was getting more irritated. At this time, his face was even more cloudy.
“Why do you care?”
He Yi laughed: “If a person does not sleep well, the spirit will naturally be lacking in vitality. If the spirit is not strong, how can things go smoothly?”
Zhu Feng glittered a little upon hearing that.
