Nan Yan stood in the blazing sunshine, she thought for a moment then directly turned towards the High Advisor Ministry.
Here, of course, she would be alone.
As usual, she sat down quietly in front of the table and lit the incense stick on the table. She watched the smoke rising in spirals that slowly dispersed into the calm air.
Unlike in High Advisor Ministry where it was quiet, the Imperial Garden at this moment was already rejoicing.
Before, this place had been damaged by the chaos. But after Zhu Feng’s accession to the throne, the Imperial Garden was rebuilt soon and even faster than the Tai Palace Hall. All damaged trees and flowers were removed and replanted. At this moment, the scenery had changed beyond recognition.
A hundred flowers have bloomed, bees fly and butterfly move about. On top of that, palace ladies that wore red on top and green jade skirt walked around with wine and food. They left behind a wave of refreshing aroma which let even more people get intoxicated.
The singers’ silver-bell like voices echoed between the banquet, and the dancers danced lightly and gracefully in the spacious center. The flying fine black hair, brows and eyes attracted all people. They also left a disturbing feeling.
Sitting on the upper left of the banquet was Ning Wang Zhu Xuan. From the beginning, he had looked at the white wrists and slender ankles that appeared between those dancers now and then. Was it not the greatest pleasure ?
On the other hand, Jing Wang Zhu Yao who sat opposite to him did not have much interest in them.
He just kept looking at his Fourth Brother. Once, he was called Fourth Brother, but now all the brothers must lie down at his feet and call him the Emperor.
Thinking of it, here again, he drank another cup of wine
Zhu Feng looked at them from the corner of his eye and also did not say much, still holding his cup and sipping it bit by bit.
Unaware for how long he was drinking, Zhu Yao had another drink. His eyes were already reddened with wine. He suddenly stood up and raised his glass of wine: “Fourth brother, Didi offers you this cup.”
When they heard him talking, the people around him were stunned.
Sitting at Zhu Feng’s side, Empress Xu Miaoyin’s face was slightly sinking, and she looked at Yu Gonggong behind her with meaningful glance. Yu Gonggong said,
“Your Highness Wang Jing, the courtesy between a monarch and his subject must not discarded.”
When he had just finished speaking, Zhu Feng raised his hand to stop him. He laughed ,
“This is a family dinner today. There are no monarchs and his subjects, only us brothers, let Older Brother drink your cup of wine !”
After that, both brothers drained the cup in one gulp.
Aside, a little smile hung from the corner of Zhu Xuan’s mouth and he said:
“Your Majesty has a good quantity of wine. Then, Chendi offers you a cup.”
Zhu Feng looked at him, his eyes slightly flashing:
“Well, come !”
After he said that, the two people drank up the wine in the cup.
In this way, the atmosphere became hot again. Xu Miaoyin looked at this and waved at the side. Another group of dancers came up slowly, singing along with the music.
Zhu Xuan looked at these charming girls, full of interest. He naturally poured himself a wine to drink and soon after, his cheeks flushed.
But when the dance ended, the dancers slowly retired and Zhu Yao stood up suddenly.
“Emperor, Chendi has one thing that he wants to achieve to ask.”
Zhu Feng turned around and looked at him.
“What does Jing Wang want ? There is no harm in saying what one thinks.”
Zhu Yao said, “Since Your Majesty says so, then Chendi will do so. Before, Your Majesty had temporarily transferred personnel to Chendi to second. Tai Ning soldiers and Fuyu soldiers already came in an agreement before the event, will you give Chendi a heavy reward.”
His straightforward words, unexpectedly spoke this kind of matters.
Zhu Feng smiled and laughed.
“Could it be that Jing Wang feels the rewards Zhen bestowed upon you, is not enough ?”
Zhu Yao said, “If Your Majesty really wants to bestow Chendi a reward and this one Wang Jing later. You should first give Yan Province to this Younger Brother !”
