It was already night when she came back to the palace. Xiao Cui had given out some bribes, so she thought that she had returned without being noticed.
Of course, that was just her thinking that no one noticed her.
After all, the people of the imperial palace…..all knew.
She could easily enter the palace because Feng Si Zui had already given the order and people were waiting for her.
When she came to the Splendid Hall, Luo Qing Chen saw an unfamiliar figure.
She was wearing a honey coloured smoke pattern embroidered robe with a pair of phoenix embroidered shoes. She had her hair in a bun and there was a butterfly hairpin with a silver ribbon that was inserted through it, looking very noble.
Right now, there was only one person who could dress like this in the large harem.
The previous host didn’t know much about Xi Jin, perhaps they had met, perhaps they hadn’t.
She felt that if she tried to remember what Xi Jin looked like, she definitely couldn’t remember it.
“Xi Jin greets the empress.” She seemed to have heard the footsteps. She bowed the moment she had turned.
It was snowing very hard today, so when she kneeled in the snow, it gave people a very delicate feeling.
But she knew that she was not some delicate white flower, the feeling she gave was one of pleading.
“There’s no need for this.” Luo Qing Chen slowly came to her. When she wanted to help her up, she suddenly looked up, “Xi Jin has one request. If the empress doesn’t agree, Xi Jin will remain kneeling……”
She said this as tears came out of her clear eyes, just like pearls falling down.
Luo Qing Chen took back her hand. She narrowed her eyes and calmly said, “I don’t like being threatened.”
She didn’t feel any hostility towards Xi Jin, but she didn’t feel any goodwill either.
After all, she was a small minded person. Just one couple in this life, there’s no room for sand in your eyes.
Xi Jin closed her eyes and tightly bit her lip as she said, “Empress, see the emperor!”
Luo Qing Chen’s eyes trembled when she heard this. She had a new perspective of the girl kneeling in front of her.
Eunuch Li and the other maids were standing outside the door. When they saw Luo Qing Chen slowly walking over, it was like they had seen their saviour.
Luo Qing Chen waved her hand and said in a soft voice, “I know the general situation. Go to the imperial doctors and get some alcohol resolving tea and you two can go cook some porridge. Eunuch Li, keep watch outside, I will call you if I need you.”
“Yes…..Empress.” Eunuch Li gave a deep bow, “Empress, the emperor…..The emperor……”
“You don’t need to say anything.” She said, “I know.”
She slowly opened the door of the Endless Hall and the scent of alcohol spread in all directions, giving one a feeling of endless desolation.
She never thought that a trip to the Luo Manor would be mistaken as a private meeting with Feng Xing Yue.
She didn’t even dare think about how Feng Si Zui had reacted when he learned of this matter.
That kind of obsessive man, that passionate love that was destroyed again and again, what kind of pain was that?
She made a decision at that moment.
It was a risky decision with 50% affection in hand.
“This concubine…..is here to comfort the emperor.” Her voice was very soft, but in the silence of the Endless Hall, her voice became especially clear.
The hall was very dark, all the candles had been extinguished. Seeing that no one responded, when she was about to move forward, there was a cold as water voice that hit her ears.
