Chapter 93 – Rewards (2)
Ye Zhen didn’t expect that the emperor would give her so many things, Aside from the palace cloth brocade, he gave her one hundred and twenty gold taels which made her a little dizzy.
This was what Me Rongyi referred to when when he promise her rewards. She didn’t want it because she wanted to take advantage of this kindness to get more benefits such as having greater chance in entering the palace. Yet, Mo Rongzhan brought a hundred and two pieces of gold taels to cut ties with her. Did he see her plan?
“Mother said that since these were given to you by the emperor, you should put them away properly. Both elder brother and mother have thanked you.” Lu Xiangzhi said to Ye Zhen with a smile.
Ye Zhen nodded, thinking where to put away the hundred and twenty taels of gold. “I will.”
“You didn’t say anything in front of the emperor, did you?” Lu Xiangzhi asked her. Ye Zhen’s face instantly fell into a sullen look.
“In your opinion, am I just a wild girl who only causes trouble?” Ye Zhen eyes stared back hurtly.
Lu Xiangzhi laughed, trying to ease up things.”No, isn’t this the first time you meet the emperor? Of course you must have been nervous! Eldest brother was also concerned of how you talked to him.”
Ye Zhen snorted. “If the emperor asks, I will answer. What else will I say?”
The first time she saw the Emperor, she was really nervous. However, she actually spent two years with Mo Rongzhan as a ghost. She didn’t feel strange with him anymore. They just spoke to each other for the first time..It was just a bit sour.
At first, she felt that she had many things to ask him, but she couldn’t.
Lu Xiangzhi said, “What did the emperor ask you?”
Ye Zhen’s heart sneered. It must have been Lu Lingzhi who asked her brother to ask her of this. She was too aware of what Lu Lingzhi was afraid of. Ah! He was terribly afraid that Mo Rongzhan would recognize her resemblance with her old self.
“I didn’t ask anything. He just asked if me if knew a girl named Yao Yao.” Ye Zhen said doubtfully, “Do you think someone has the same name as me?”
Lu Xiangzhi eyes widened in surprise. “The emperor also asked you of that? Last time he asked me your name and where we lived before we came to the capital.”
Mirroring the same reaction, Ye Zhen was also stunned to hear that Mo Rongzhan had already suspected her, but did he not remember that she once said her nickname? How did it come his mind just recently?
Is it because hearing someone call her by this name touched his memory and reminded him of eight years ago?
Ye Zhen laughed internally, things were happening just the way she wanted.
Things that never happened during her two years of being an invincible phantom in the palace happens now after she transmigrated in her twin sister’s body.
