Thinking of this, she clenched her teeth hard and put all her attention towards her chest to resist the pain. A cold sweat slowly gathered on her forehead.
As the atmosphere in the carriage became more and more dull, the carriage passed through the morning of day as well as the almost deserted streets and finally arrived at Zhao Wen’s Shop.
The carriage stopped at the door of Jian Fu and shook one last time before stopping. Nan Yan’s chest felt like it was smashed against a stone-hammer, making the pain gave her cold sweat.
Then she heard Ye Zheng’s voice, “Wang Ye, we have arrived.”
Zhu Feng ordered her, “Go down and knock at the door.”
Nan Yan hesitated for a moment before coming back to her senses. Zhu Feng once again called her, she then responded to him. Nan Yan moved firmly toward the exit in order to go down from the carriage. Fortunately, Ye Zheng came running to help her to get off the carriage, but when she landed, she felt a dull pain in her chest. Her eyebrows were all creasing.
Ye Zheng looked at her worried and whispered: “Are you sick, Miss Si ?”
Nan Yan shook her head quickly: “I’m all right.”
“Oh, let’s go and knock at the door.”
Nan Yan looked up, only to see that their carriage was parked in front of the entrance door of a residence. It was not a big eight door and the walls on both sides were gray and the bottom was covered with moss. The gate was black and the two copper rings above were shiny with oil. Obviously, there were many people coming and going.
On the top of the gate was a big plaque with two heavy words in it…
Nan Yan was stunned for a moment.
In Jinling, there were not many people who were surnamed Jian. Besides, His Highness Yan Wang was personally visiting, so it could not be the common surname Jian.
Is it the famous Master Tongguang who is famous all over the world ?
She looked back with a subliminal look, but the curtain of the car had fallen down and she could not see the expression of Zhu Feng in it. She could only turn around and walk slowly to the door, grabbing the door knocker and patting it twice.
But it was very quiet inside.
No one was at home ?
She thought about it then patted two more times, and lowly spoke, “Please open the door.”
This time at last there was a slight movement, she heard a sound of footsteps coming from distant approximately. The gate opened and a white old man came out, “Who is it ?”
Nan Yan hurriedly and respectfully said: “Old man, His Highness Yan Wang comes to visit your master.”
The old man frowned, then looked outside again and said: “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
At the end of the talk, he slammed shut the door.
Nan Yan was stupefied. She thought by mentioning “His Highness Yan Wang” she could go in, but she did not expect to eat a loss. However, she didn’t know that beforehand, Zhu Feng took Ye Zheng with him two times before. Moreover, he did not even open the door the first time.
She looked back at the somewhat embarrassed looking Ye Zheng, and Ye Zheng also looked back at her. He made a gesture towards her and motioned for her to shout again.
He knew the temper of his lord inside the carriage.
If they do not see Jian Tongguang again this time, I am afraid that this is going to be a disaster.
Nan Yan felt that her chest was getting more and more painful, and her pain was somewhat unsmooth. But she could only endure it and knock a few more times. This time, after a quiet period of time, footsteps were heard, walking to the door. Thinking that it was the old gatekeeper from before who had come again. Then the gate opened just a slit.
A pure and dignified face reflects into the eye of Nan Yan.
The young gongzi who came to open the door wore a blue cheongsam clothing. He was about 20 years old with a handsome appearance. His face revealed a scholarly charm.
As soon as he opened the door, he saw a woman. He was also stunned, “Who are you looking for ?”
At this time, Nan Yan felt that the pain in her chest was somewhat unbearable: “His Highness Yan Wang, want to talk… “
Unable to finish what she was about to say, she felt a sudden darkness surrounding her and collapsed at once.
