- Rebirth of the Tyrant's Pet: Regent Prince Is Too Fierce
- Chapter 291 - Congratulations From All Sides (2)
“Presenting the gifts——”
The palace eunuch announced, and someone quickly delivered the list to Chang Xi’s hand. He opened it and began to announce the gift.
As the names of those exquisite treasures were announced one by one, the people standing behind Shang Mingxi also unveiled the gifts one by one.
The room was filled with treasures for the moment and people gasped in surprise as each gift was unveiled.
Most of the gifts were things that are only present in Yu Qi and not in Da Yu, so the items appeared to seem especially precious.
The emperor smiled and rewarded some gifts that were just as valuable, displaying the wealth and demeanor of Da Yu.
“Tell your Empress Dowager that I send my regards.”
Gong Cheng naturally knew who the real mastermind behind Yu Qi. However, if he said that out loud in such an occasion that a woman was in power in Yu Qi, Yu Qi’s people definitely wouldn’t be happy. This was another form of pressure.
However, it seemed like Shang Mingxi didn’t feel awkward or embarrassed at all. He saluted naturally and elegantly.
“Thank you, Your Majesty for the rewards. This official will definitely bring the emperor’s words over!”
After Yu Qi, it was Yu Heng.
Likewise, he also gifted an extravagant congratulatory gift. Yet Gong Jue noticed that the leader would glance at his ordinary subordinate from time to tim. He subconsciously took this to his heart.
When it was Lou Ye’s turn, things turned a bit subtle.
After all, he had almost begun a war but Da Yu had easily diffused the conflict…
Gong Jue obtained 50,000 imperial guards from this unrivaled power! He had a revered status. It could be said that he was above everyone but below one person. But this was based on the foundation that Lou Ye had suffered greatly from it. His people couldn’t help but wish to kill him off.
The leader was a man with a beard. He glanced at everyone with a cruel and harsh gaze, making the situation awkward. The people by his side said something in his ears at the right moment. He directly locked his gaze with Gong Jue because of this. The two looked straight at each other across the vast banquet room, not letting one another!
The emperor’s face became serious and gloomy. He didn’t want to go to war but he wasn’t afraid of her! Lou Ye always had a greedy heart. He had been interested in the fertile mainland China for a while. It wasn’t one or two days that he was after it. Though they had no idea what they were planning today.
As the gifts were offered as tributes, people shockingly realized that none of their gifts were missing. Gong Cheng pondered deeply for a moment and decided to gift them a more extravagant gift back. Who knew that the leader with a beard waved his hands and rejected his reward.
“Da Yu’s emperor, we have gifted you a birthday gift for two reasons. For one, we wanted to congratulate you and second, we want to ask for a specific gift in return.”
The emperor slightly raised his eyebrows, secretly unhappy with his bluntness.
“Oh? What do you want?”
That person laughed and pointed at Gong Jue! “Da Yu’s Ninth Prince has three life medals belonged to our country’s officials. Without the life medals, their souls can’t rest in peace. Therefore, I want to ask the emperor to gift life medals to me as a reward so that I can give it back to its rightful owner!”
At least he was awake and didn’t ask for anything too excessive. He just asked for the life medals. It was basically Lou Ye’s humiliation! They clearly remembered how that guy easily defused the conflict in that battle. They were basically trying to maintain the last of their face by asking for the life medals as they had been crushed to dust during the battle.
The emperor didn’t hesitate that much before he gave it back to them. He regarded Gong Jue highly. He was just a boy but had done so many things for him in silence. He made Lou Ye lose their face which helped him vent his anger.
But thinking of how someone said Gong Jue had hidden Gong Yimo… he had no idea of the validity of the sentence.
The dancing and singer continued still.
The gifts after were very stunning too. From time to time, people gasped in shock. But when Prince Nan brought up his gift, Gong Jue slightly paid attention. Towards Gong Yimo’s random confidence, he believed in her. Everything she said had its own reasoning.
