Sorry for the delay😞
Hearing this, Wu Wan’s face became even more ugly.
She gritted her teeth and said hatefully: “Another bed-climbing girl !”
Then, again, she spoke: “By the way, what about the lady who was by His Highness’s side ? Who is she?”
Qiao Yun said: “The woman is called Si Nan Yan. I heard that the day Jinling City was captured, the Palace was caught in a large fire. That night, Wangye saved her life.”
Wu Wan’s face became even colder: “She is also——”
“Oh, this matter has not been heard.” Qiao Yun said: “She just served Wang Ye for a few nights. She actually did not make any trouble, it seems like she knows her place.”
Wu Wan sneered and said: “She better know her place.”
“If not, this concubine will deal her altogether!”
With great difficulty, Nan Yan managed to comfort Xia Yunting who was anxious and frightened. Nan Yan was very exhausted when she returned to the Lateral Courts. As she just about opened her bedroom door she saw Ran Xiaoyu sitting at the table, turning around to look at her.
Nan Yan was stupefied: “You ! Why are you—— ?”
Ran Xiaoyu said lightly: “The Lateral courts suddenly got a new arrival of peoples. There are empty beds in both our bedrooms. But I do not want to live with strangers, so I moved here to your room.”
“You do not want to share your bedroom with me? “
Nan Yan quickly waved her hand.
“No no no ! How can I dislike you, Young lady Ran?”
Hearing her appellation, Ran Xiaoyu’s brows slightly wrinkled. She sighed and said: “Listen, you do not need to call me like that. You can call me Xiaoyu, that will do.”
In fact, ever since her helpful words last time, Nan Yan thought about getting close with her. However, everyday, she did not associate with many people. Therefore she did not dare to get too close with Ran Xiaoyu. When she heard her remarks, Nan Yan was relaxed and lightly said:
Ran Xiaoyu faintly smiled. Then she got up to collect her remaining things. Although Nan Yan was very tired, she also came to lend her a hand.
Ran Xiaoyu, while putting everything in order, said to her.
“That strange. You are now the favorite person around His Highness Yan Wang. Yet, how can you still live in this kind of place?”
Nan Yan whispered: “Why am I regarded as his favorite person?”
“These days, every day I see you, you are following the King of Yan when he walks out. If you are not his favorite person, who is?”
“His Highness favorite person is not me.”
“Oh? Who is it then?”
Nan Yan hesitated for a moment, remembering the bright and beautiful faces in Wu Ying Palace, smiling at the bottom of her heart. Then she said, “Of course, it is Yan Wangfei and those Concubines ladies. But tomorrow she will be known as the Empress.”
Ran Xiaoyu said: “Oh! No wonder so many people have come to the Palace today. They are all so arrogant.”
“Well, Wangye is going to ascend the throne tomorrow, of course they have to get there.”
“Ascend the throne… ”
Ran Xiaoyu mumbled these three words, as if thinking about something. After a while, she suddenly asked: “What kind of person is this new Emperor who is about to ascend ?”
Nan Yan froze for a moment: “Huh?”
“I have not seen him yet and you follow him every day. You must know what kind of man he is ?”
Nan Yan did not think Ran Xiaoyu would ask her this question, but this one question made her thoughts stunned. It occurred a few days ago that in this room, Xia Yunting also asked her the exact question.
And at that time, her answer was——
‘He is different.’
Thinking that previously she had thought about it so seriously, Nan Yan felt a little pain in her chest. Although it was not like before, there was still a dull pain.
“What else can I say? Men… Are they not all same?”
