The voice was very rude like the sound of gong. Nan Yan could not help but turn around. She saw two tall men walking on the corridor.
Among them, the one who spoke, was a tall and sturdy man looked like an iron tower. Nan Yan thought Zhu Feng was already a very tall man,yet this man looked taller than His Majesty and had a beard on his face.
She was unable to guess his age but she saw a pair of tiger eyes that were striking in appearance, both swift and fierce.
And to his side was that “Seventh Brother”. He was very tall and clothed gorgeously. Because of his lean appearance, his posture seemed outstanding and his hands was holding a fan, lightly fanning himself.
The cool breeze brushed his handsome face and a strand of hair on the face was caressed by the breeze.
He turned around just in time to meet Nan Yan face to face.
He was a handsome young man.
He saw Nan Yan, and his eyes lit up. He immediately came over to her side and lifted his hand to give courtesy to Nan Yan.
“This Daren, gives courtesy to the Female Officer.”
Nan Yan looked at his imposing manner, and she was somewhat suspicious of him but she promptly turned back with courtesy
“Excuse me, how can we go into the Imperial Garden ?”
“The Imperial Garden ?”
Nan Yan unexpectedly had not even began to speak, yet that one with the beard on his face already grabbed the opportunity to speak,
“Seventh Brother, I see that you are very much polite to a palace maid, what a joke ?”
This “Seventh Brother” laughed,
“Sixth elder brother, you did not realize, this is not an ordinary palace maid. In case my guess is not wrong… “.
He spoke aside while on the other hand looking at Si Nan Yan with a smile:
“You are the famous Female High Adviser of the Great Yan Dynasty.”
Nan Yan widened her eyes and looked at him hesitantly.
“You are… “
”Zhu Xuan, the Seventh son of Emperor Gao. I was named Ning Wang at thirteen years old.”
Nan Yan hastily bent down to salute,
“Greetings His Highness Ning Wang.”
Zhu Xuan smiled,
Nan Yan stood up and hurried to show them the way. Zhu Xuan was polite and earnestly listened to her directions. Then laughed,
“We brothers have been to our respective feudal areas, so we have not been to the capital for several years. This is our home, yet we are not as familiar as Female Officer Si.”
Nan Yan said, “Ning Wang is joking.”
Zhu Xuan turned the fan in his hand and laughed,
“Completely young and inexperienced.”
At his side, the man with a beard frowned,
“Seventh Brother, do not forget for what we entered the palace to do and what not. Do not move your legs at the sight of a beautiful woman.”
“Sixth Elder Brother, save some face for Younger Brother.”
The two of them walked away laughing as they talked.
Far away, Zhu Xuan turned back and raised his eyebrows against Nan Yan.
Nan Yan stood in place, somewhat in shock, having not regained her senses.
If she was not guessing wrongly… She would not be guess wrong if she say that the beard man is no one else but the current Emperor’s Sixth Younger Brother, Prince Zhu Jing
Jing Wang and Ning Wang joined the palace together.
Moreover, just now the two of them were asking where the Imperial Garden was. Did they not say that the Emperor was going to have a banquet in the Imperial Garden ? Was it to entertain the two brothers ?
Nan Yan couldn’t help but have some of her emotions stirred up.
Knowing His Majesty, throwing a banquet for his own brothers, without a doubt was nothing else but a trivial matter. However, Jing Wang and Ning Wang were not ordinary brothers.
Perhaps no one else knew, but one of the series of decrees issued after Zhu Feng ascended the throne was to give a heavy and special reward for his two younger brothers. In particular, they were rewarded for the troops under their command, ‘The Three outstanding Yan Guard’.
