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.
Nan Yan stood in the middle of the lobby, only feeling that her uneasiness was growing as much as Jian Tongguang’s anger. He glared at her and once again flushed with anger.
“You… You… “
Nan Yan stepped forward and softly said: ” Old Master Jian, please don’t be angry.”
She had just finished when the man standing next to Jian Tongguang, who was his eldest son Jian Ruojun, also get angry and flustered with anger, said: “You shut up !”
As he burst into anger, Nan Yan swallowed back the words she wanted to say.
At this time, Jian Ruocheng spoke.
“Big brother, Miss Nan Yan had acted under the orders of His Highness. You must not make things difficult for her.”
“If I really wanted to make things difficult for her, how could she might possible came here and said these words ?”
“His Highness Yan Wang is too much. If he is going to kill us, then he should just do it. Instead, he sent us a palace maid to insult our father like this !”
When Nan Yan heard these words, she looked at Madam Jiahe disappointed expression. Furthermore Xiao Zhi was also shocked, wearing a hurtful look.
But she clenched her teeth and solemnly spoke.
“Old Master Jian those words are what His Highness Yan Wang asked me to tell you. But now that I am here, there are a few words that I want to tell you. Would you mind to listen to it ? “
Jian Tongguang was already very angry at her. So when he heard her that she had something more to say, instead of being extremely angry, he laughed.
“You still have something to say ?! Well, say it then !”
Nan Yan said: “Between giving up life for righteousness and bringing peace and stability to the country ? What is the most important for Old Master Jian ?”
As soon as the words came out, the people in the hall were stunned.
Jian Tongguang also frowned.
“What did you just say ?”
Seeing that he was willing to listen to her words, Nan Yan hurriedly said.
“Old Master Jian is the leader of all the scholars in the world, naturally you will not submit to force. You, giving up life for righteousness, is a guarantee for success and recognition.
“But does this kind of thought really good ?”
“I beg your pardon but to give up your life for righteousness… is selfish. Bringing peace and stability to the country would benefit more to people.”
“Old Master Jian is regarded as the leader by the world’s scholars and is full of political wisdom. Of course, Old Master should use his knowledge to make both the country and the people benefit from it. It should not be for the sake of “one’s selfishness” that the life of a whole family must be ruin for nothing.”
“Furthermore those scholar outside are willing to die with Old Master Jian. Because this is the natural integrity of the scholars. But when Old Master Jian die, the scholars will die too then the whole scholar group will grow short. Then, the whole scholar group will go extinct!”
“If this happens then, your fame and wealth will be achieved. Afterwards, the scholar in the whole world will certainly gathered because of your death as well as their hate towards the court. The court will then be put under more pressure because of those scholars. Until that time where the Court will suppress them since she cannot use them, then no scholars will become necessary to the Court. This kind of situation, is this what Old Master Jian wants to see ?”
Jian Tongguang starred at her with big eyes, not daring to believe at what this young woman had just said.
Is she really nothing else aside from being His Highness Yan Wang’s palace maid?
How can she speak such words ?
He hesitated for a moment and said: “What is your name?”
Nan Yan hurriedly said: “I am surnamed Si, my name is Nan Yan.”
“Si ? ” Jian Tongguang said with a frown. He faintly hesitated before saying: “Is Si Zhong Wen your father ?
Nan Yan’s voice trembled slightly: “Yes… He is my father.”
Jian Tongguang took a deep breath.
“It turned out that you were his daughter.”
“Ha ha, this old man has always wanted to meet them since a long time ago. But, there has not been any chance to meet them. I did not expect to see the Si Zhong Wen’s daughter. Even more to listen to this sort of… ’brilliant theory.”
Nan Yan hastily said: “I dare not.”
Jian Tongguang looked at her for a moment and said: “This old man has another word to ask.”
“Please ask Master Jian “
“You just said that if His Highness Yan Wang ascended the throne, he might possibly create a wise era. Do you really think he can become a brilliant Emperor ?”
