Since she was enshrined as Female High Advisor Official, she would avoid him like a snake would avoid a scorpion. Less time by his side and as much as possible less time of meeting face to face.
But just thinking about this was making his heart burn again.
Why should he care about her ? She was just a lowly servant !
Thinking of this, Zhu Feng took a deep breath and slowly closed his eyes.
The night passed quickly.
It was already the second day when Zhu Feng opened his eyes again. He had never slept as comfortably as yesterday for the past few days.
As soon as he turned around, he saw the girl at the bedside with her forehead leaning against the pillar, incessantly bumping into it.
Although he slept comfortably, he did not know why but when he saw her, he felt a distinct anger.
He said, “Get up !”
Nan Yan blankly opened her misty eyes, looked at him for a while, and then came back to her senses,
Zhu Feng very nimble turned over from the bed, she hurried to help him up to stand. But her both legs were somewhat numb, so she was unable to move freely. Still, she hastily served him to bath.
Then dressed him.
She wondered if it was an illusion that when she helped put clothes on the body of Zhu Feng one by one. His gazed at her as if he were looking into something.
Nan Yan was so keen as if burdened with something, not at all aware of what to do. She heard him suddenly asked,
“How are you these days ?”
Nan Yan looked up at him with surprised,
“What ?, Can you not understand my words!?”
“Oh, This slave servant… this slave servant is doing very good.”
“Very good ?”
“This slave servant is treated well. Received a favor by His Majesty, promoted to a higher job and appoint as Female High Advisor Official.”
This scene made Zhu Feng’s eyebrows twisted again,
” Then, do you have anything to say about the few decrees that Zhen has promulgated these days?”
Nan Yan listened, sometimes wondering why he asked so.
“His Majesty… As a female servant, this slave servant cannot interfere with the affairs of the country nor can she ask what is promulgated in the Imperial decree.”
“This slave servant has nothing to say.”
Zhu Feng looked down at her. After a while, he suddenly coldly smiled,
“When you originally substituted Zhen to rebuke Jian Tongguang, you were not cautious like this.”
Nan Yan looked at him in surprise.
Zhu Feng again showed a look of intolerance and just faintly waved his hand,
“That will be all.”
Zhen had thought there would be something special. It turned out to be the same.
The radiant things, after years of tempering, became dull and lost their light. He thought that the one that came out from the burning flames in Tai Palace Hall was a treasure, but now it seems that it was just this (in a disdainful way).
Nan Yan listened to his words, still somewhat astounded. But Zhu Feng had already waved his cold hands,
“You may go down.”
Nan Yan looked at him hesitantly but did not say anything at all. She saluted him and turned around to step down.
Zhu Feng looked at her figure coldly, and at this time Ye Zheng came up and whispered: “His Majesty, the banquet on the other side of Imperial Garden is ready.”
Nan Yan only heard that sentence, before coming out of Wu Ying Palace.
Outside, the sun shined brightly.
She walked slowly in the blazing sun, and as she passed a long corridor, she heard a voice beside,
“Seventh Brother, I said you went the wrong way.”
