But what was most important to her now was Xi Jin. She had to go to the Endless Hall and stop Xi Jin from reversing this case!
The two maids who followed her looked at Luo Qing Chen before quickly following Mu Ying Ying.
Luo Qing Chen stood there as her lips curled into a beautiful arc.
This plan had to go back an hour, she had taught Xi Li what to say to the emperor to reverse this case.
“You just need to say three things when you see the emperor. First, why did Mu Tian Tian bring the pastries? Second, Xi Jin had just come back to the palace, how could she have time to make an appointment with Mu Tian Tian? Third, why would someone be dumb enough to kill someone in the palace?”
“The emperor will let me reverse the case?”
“It’s a bit hard.” Luo Qing Chen slightly knit her brows, “After all, these are all only inferences.”
“Then what if…..What if the emperor is indifferent?”
After a while, Luo Qing Chen said, “Just tell him that when it snowed that year, Xi Jin once kneeled in the snow and begged the empress to see him.”
Luo Qing Chen wasn’t certain that Feng Si Zui would reverse the case for Xi Jin, but she was certain that he would definitely remember the matter of the past.
It was time to pay back what she owed Xi Jin.
In the Endless Hall, Xi Jin was dressed in a prisoner’s uniform and had wooden handcuffs around her wrists, looking a bit haggard.
Although Xi Jin looked quite bad, it was a good thing that Xi Jin was out of that dark place.
He had to admit that the girl named Chen Zi really was powerful.
At first the emperor was indifferent to those first three things, but when he said the final words, he could tell there was a change in those eyes.
Those eyes that were like dark ink had a bit of glow in them.
“Your little brother wants to reverse the case for you, do you believe this one?” Feng Si Zui was like thousand year old ice that couldn’t be melted, it was so cold that it could freeze someone’s heart.
Xi Jin slightly looked up as she pursed her lips, “Emperor, Xi Jin has known you for ten years, being able to talk without care for status……”
After saying this, she paused before letting out tears from her bloodshot eyes, “In these years in the palace, I’ve seen the emperor fall in love with someone. There were no extra feelings in the beginning, but I felt very uncomfortable later on. But even like this, Xi Jin hoped that the person the emperor liked could see your sincerity and like you……”
Feng Si Zui’s fingers trembled and his eyes were sparkling as he looked at Xi Jin kneeling in front of him.
He remembered the scene of the pasts. He had thought that he already had no heart, like he was a corpse already.
But he could feel emotions in his heart.
“Emperor!” Xi Li immediately kneeled down, “Big sister was wronged!”
As soon as his voice fell, there was the voice of a certain girl in his mind. He suddenly felt he was a bit dumb and shouldn’t have said anything…...
He changed his tone, “Big sister, she…..she can’t even harm an ant! It’s impossible she killed someone!”
“Nonsense!” A sharp voice came from the entrance of the Endless Hall and everyone heard it.
Mu Ying Ying quickly ran in and kneeled down to say, “Emperor, Tian Tian’s seven day death anniversary has just passed. If you can allow this murderer off with a few words, how can you say anything to my little sister’s spirit in the sky!”
Mu Ying Ying’s tears fell as she said this. As if it really was for her little sister, not willing to let this ‘murderer’ go.
