When she heard the door opened, Nan Yan raised her head,
“Ye Zheng, how come you are here ?”
Ye Zheng took a deep breath and then said,
“Come with me and bring the Imperial Jade Seal with you !”
“Bring the Imperial Jade Seal and follow me !”
“What are you saying ?”
Nan Yan was astounded.
She asked, “The Imperial Jade Seal, can you even take it everywhere ? Why on earth must you usurp the throne ?”
Ye Zheng originally had an inexpressive face but upon seeing her horrified look, it actually made him laughed.
“Me ? Who am I to usurp the throne ?”
Nan Yan asked, “Then, what do you want to do by asking me to bring the Imperial Jade Seal with me.”
“It was His Majesty’s command to bring the seal to the Imperial Garden.”
“Because His Highness Jing Wang wants His Majesty to bestow a reward. His Majesty will make a decree this way, so he wants you to bring the Imperial Jade Seal.
Nan Yan blinked and thought again, and then asked,
“What kind of reward does he want ?”
“What else can it be besides the Yan Province ?”
“The Yan Province?”
“Yes. At that time, His Majesty used the Yan’s Province for a long period. Now, he wants that piece of land.”
Speaking of this, Ye Zheng himself covered his mouth and inwardly spoke,
“I told you everything. You must not let anyone know about that.”
Nan Yan stood at the edge of the table, supporting herself by holding onto the table, not uttering a word.
Ye Zheng took her hand,
“What are you doing ? Hurry up and follow me.”
Nan Yan still did not speak, but thought for a while and then walked out from behind the table and said,
“Let us go.”
Ye Zheng saw her coming and ready to follow himt. He immediately added,
“Bring the Imperial Jade Seal.”
After saying that, he suddenly saw Nan Yan turned and that clear bright eyes looked at him. She said,
“Go ahead. I will go in advance and reply.”
Then he went out.
Ye Zheng looked at her back and it looked as if she understood something. He then hurried up with her.
When they arrived at the Imperial Garden, the mood was not the same. The singing and dancing had just leveled off since all the singers and dancers had retired. Because of the words from Jing Wang Zhu Yao, everyone felt a bit dull and was afraid to speak wrong.
The whole Imperial Garden was quiet, leaving only the sound of Ning Wang shaking the fan.
The cool breeze brought the little girl’s fragrance, fluttering in the wind. When Zhu Xuan turned over, he saw the plain-dressed maiden, who he had just seen on his way here, coming and kneeling before the Emperor.
“The slaves pays respect to His Majesty.”
He and Zhu Yao looked at each other.
When Zhu Feng saw her, he frowned unconsciously.
But he immediately said,
“Si Nan Yan, you are my High Advisor Officer. Now Zhen is going to issue an Imperial edict. You are to take the Imperial Jade Seal, after Zhen has drafted the decree, and stamp the seal on it.”
Nan Yan knelt on the ground, and her head was buried very low.
All of them were stunned.
Zhu Yao and Zhu Xuan immediately rose up and looked at the little woman who was lying on her knees.
Zhu Feng said, “What is wrong ?”
Nan Yan still bow her head,
“I ask His majesty to confer this slave servant a capital offense.”
Zhu Feng’s eyebrows wrinkled again and he said, “What is going on ?”
Nan Yan slowly lifted her head. Her pale face was full of horror. “Your Majesty had let this slave servant take charge of High Advisor Ministry, watching over the Imperial Jade Seal. But—— but this slave servant just a moment ago lost the key of the High Advisor Ministry !”
