“Just now, Wangfei accounted to Ye Zheng to find out whether there is any improper conduct to dwell or not in regards to Jian Tongguang. And if there should be, that His Highness should send someone to rebuke him. Let him know where he was wrong. At that time then you should kill him and let him accept wholeheartedly with no more complaints.”
After saying these words, Nan Yan looked back at Zhu Feng anxiously and she was met with his cold stare. Nan Yan immediately lowered her head.
After a while, the bed was ready.
Zhu Feng got up, strode over, and sat down on the edge of the bed. Nan Yan immediately retreated and just as she turned around she heard Zhu Feng say:
“If I let you reprimand him, what would you say?”
Nan Yan looked back at him with surprise.
Zhu Feng coldly spoke:
“Tell this Prince what you would say.”
Nan Yan hesitated to even think about it for a while, then whispered: “This slave would say—— Jian Tongguang, are you senile? Wang Ye is the fourth son of Emperor Gao. On the Emperor’s imperial death day, Wang Ye justifiably became an inheritor for the position of emperor. How can you be so stubborn and compete with words? You are old and muddled. Do you not know that ‘heaven has its mutations, and change its instruments from time to time, and is the inevitable and immutable law?’”
“Now the cabinet ministers have petitioned several times, but Wang Ye has declined them repeatedly. They all thought that having virtue was weak and inferior, so he must choose another worthy or virtuous person, for fear that they will mislead the citizens. This heart and virtue, even if he ascends the throne as emperor in the future, he will inherit the legacy of Ancestor Gao and the accomplishments of generations of holy rulers.
“You show no understanding of the times, pointing at heaven but cursing at earth. Forcing Wang Ye through the pain of unleashing a killer. The whole world is full of so many mediocre and unambitious people. I do not know the intention of Wang Ye ‘visiting three times in an effort to recruit you’. I only know that with your brief remarks, you do not agree with each other. The results ending in the execution of the whole family unto the third generation of ten clans put to death as punishment. How is it not a plan to have Wang Ye fall into these heartless and injustice circumstances.”
“The title of Reputation of a Ruthless Tyrant is clearly one that you strongly buckled onto Wang Ye’s head!”
When it came to the two words “Ruthless Tyrant” Nan Yan carefully looked at Zhu Feng’s eyes. Indeed, the eyes of Zhu Feng were shining brightly.
After saying these words, Wu Ying Palace fell into silence once again. Nan Yan lowered her head and in her chest she felt somewhat nervous, fearing that those two words would irritate His Highness, Yan Wang.
But she could not do anything about it.
Although she spent a short time in the Jian Household today, she did not even say much to the Madam, the xiao Zhi, and Jian’s second gongzi. But she had deep feelings for the family. Jian Tongguang, even though he put on an act of “showing no understanding of the times”. But he was a scholar, should he not have such a strong character?
She did not want such a person to die. Especially not using the cruel method of putting to death ten clans.
The silence lasted for a long time, and her mood grew more and more somber. When she tried looking carefully at Zhu Feng, she saw him lying on the bed.
She was a little scared.
Zhu Feng allowed her to speak those words and now that she said them, he did not respond at all.
What was he thinking about?
She was hesitating. Again Nan Yan heard Zhu Feng say:
“Turn off the lights.”
Nan Yan did not think that he really would not respond at all. In that tone of voice she could not hear any happiness or anger. But she could only obeyed his order and blow out the candlesticks in the hall, leaving only the small candle light at the bedside.
Just as she was about to go to the corner the cold voice of Zhu Feng came from the bed—-“Come here.”
Nan Yan’s heart moved slightly.
Would it be the same as that night, like before?
Of course, she knew that Zhu Feng would not let a woman like her climb onto his bed. She felt relief after thinking about it. But when she thought of that night, this bed —- Xia Yunting…
Nan Yan could only hesitate for a moment. The voice of Zhu Feng was ringing out again:”Not coming yet?”
She took a deep breath and walked over slowly.
Zhu Feng lied at the head of the bed in the dim light and only his bright, restrained eyes sparkled. Revealing a near-dangerous light.
Nan Yan stood at the head of the bed and whispered: “Your Highness still has something to command?”
