There were also some servants on both sides, who were all gathered in the hall.
Nan Yan was embarrassed and did not say anything for a while. When Old Master Jian saw her, he said: “Why ? Has the order come ? This old man has been waiting for it, lead the way !”
Before Nan Yan could speak up, Jian Ruocheng had already walked in saying: “Father doesn’t need to be so angry. Miss Nan Yan did not come to send the order. She is here to follow Yan Wang’s orders to say a few words.”
As soon as his voice dropped, Xiao Zhi, who was standing beside Madam Jiahe, waved with a happy expression to Nan Yan: “Beautiful older sister, you’re here!”
“Did you come to see me?”
Madam Jiahe stretched out her hand and pressed down on Xiao Zhi’s hand. She whispered a few words and made him keep quiet. Xiao Zhi probably didn’t quite understand what was going on, but he still listened to his mother, even smiling at her with a happy face.
At the sight of his innocence and enthusiasm, Nan Yan’s heart became even sadder.
Such an innocent child, and one who still did not know anything. If Yan Wang decided to execute the whole family till the third generation of the ten clans each and everyone of them were going to be put to death, then would this child also be killed?
At this time, Jian Tongguang stood up and said: “Yan Wang let you come? What do you have to say then?”
Nan Yan raised her head, and was stunned as she looked at the pair of eyes filled with vigor, bright and full of meaning.
The old man was as thin as yellow leaves bamboo, but his back was as straight as the bamboo was. It seemed as if even a mountain top could not bend him down. His eyes were bright, and even though he had wrinkled face, he maintained the kind of enthusiasm and perseverance you could find in young people.
It was no wonder that all the scholars in the world revered him as the head of scholars.
Nan Yan thought for a while, and decided to make a courtesy to him first: ” Old Master Jian.”
Jian Tongguang waved his hand and said: “Don’t need to show courtesy to me. Say what you have to say and execute if you want to execute.”
Nan Yan was still hesitating when beside her, Jian Ruocheng calmly told her: “Miss Nan Yan, if you have something to say you can just say it directly.”
Those words, how could she possible speak it in front of them?
Nan Yan was embarrassed and that almost made her weep.
Although Nan Yan had not spent much time with them, but she could get along well with not only Young Madam Jiahe and Xiao Zhi, but with Second Young Master Jian as well. She had also heard Jian Tongguang’s famous name when she was very young, and admired him. But His Highness Yan Wang had made her come here to rebuke Jian Tongguang.
Nan Yan trembled, panicking. Then, she suddenly realized something.
For what reason exactly was she here for?
She was not an official in the court, and wasn’t like Ye Zheng who always followed His Highness Yan Wang as a confidant. However, it was because of those random words that she said that she had been ordered by Yan Wang to come here. But she was just a slave, a servant actually, not really a ‘real’ slave.
To rebuke Jian Tongguang, who had higher standing than her, why should she be hesitant to do it?
Besides, Zhu Feng was not a fool. He couldn’t care less about the implication of this so called ‘reprimand’.
Could it be that—-
Thinking till here, Nan Yan’s heart could not help but pound, and when she lifted up her head, she could see Jian Ruocheng warm eyes watching her:”Miss Nan Yan, you can say anything you want.”
Nan Yan bit her lower lips and finally took a deep breath. Then she pointed at Jian Tongguang and shouted: “Jian Tongguang! Y-You, are you senile?”
After that, her mind went blank. It couldn’t be helped, as in the next moment, she spat out everything she was told to say.
The old man became more and more pale the more Nan Yan spoke. When he heard the last few words, he trembled. A sudden slap on the table shook the whole hall. He pointed Nan Yan and hissed: “How dare you insult me at this time!
After saying that, he fainted.
Everyone in the hall immediately panicked, and rushed up to help the old man. Everyone hurried him back into his chair made him sit down, constantly having him drink water.
After a few moments, Jian Tongguang woke up slowly.
