Baili Zhentao’s head bobbed up and down, his heart constantly thinking over what to say next time to the Emperor.
The most important thing is how he himself had no idea!
The drafting feast continued, and the Empress began to select some girls, one by one, and asked them to leave. They all left in a rush, embarrassed.
Baili Hongzhuang lazily sampled the royal snacks as the palace maids and eunuchs shuttled back and forth, constantly replacing them with new desserts.
The two black and white furballs watched the scene as if they had just seen a 10 foot high cake, almost about to drool.
Baili Hongzhuang was clearly in a good mood and warned the kids not to stray too far before letting them out to play.
Dibei Chen sat by Baili Hongzhuang’s side, a light smile on his face as he asked, “You aren’t even a little bit worried?”
“What do you think about Baili Zhentao’s status in Feng Bo country?”
Baili Hongzhuang raised an eyebrow as she took a grape and ate it.
Dibei Chen revealed a smile. With just a few words, he understood what Baili Hongzhaung had meant.
Because Baili Zhentao always rushed headlong into the battlefield, his status was deeply ingrained in Feng Bo country.
Nowadays, the most suitable general to lead the fierce soldiers was Baili Zhentao so Xuanyuan Yutian would be forced to consider the bigger picture, and so would only punish a little to prevent a lot.
Although Baili Hongzhuang wasn’t exactly close to Baili Zhentao, she was still to be considered his daughter. There wouldn’t be any life threatening dangers.
“You’ve dealt a great hand, however now Baili Yuyan’s really wretched.”
Following Dibei Chen’s line of sight, she noticed Baili Yuyan encompassed by a group of girls. Even with the distance, she could still hear their sarcastic words.
“You feel sorry for her?” Baili Hongzhuang asked.
She couldn’t feel that Baili Yuyan was wretched. The sarcastic and mocking comments were only her first taste.
But she, Baili Hongzhuang, had lived in such an environment her entire life.
Even though Baili Yuyan’s reputation wasn’t very good now, the General Household had never made her suffer. But for her?
Never full, always hungry, and even a servant could come and bully her as they pleased. In comparison, even now Baili Yuyan was already treated far better than her.
Dibei Chen shook his head, “No, I don’t feel sorry for her.”
Baili Hongzhaung’s eyes flashed, shocked. She had thought everyone would feel bad of Baili Yuyan, but why did Dibei Chen think differently?
“But I do feel sorry for you.”
Dibei Chen’s words were serious. When he had investigated Baili Hongzhaung’s identity, he had also found out what her life was like before.
It was hard to believe that this arrogant woman here today had actually grown up in that kind of environment. It was no wonder that she didn’t feel the least bit bad for Baili Yuyan. If it was him, then he would’ve been even more merciless!
Baili Hongzhaung’s face stiffened. This was the first time she had seen Dibei Chen so serious. Not knowing what else to do, Baili Hongzhuang could only fake calmness as she watched the show, pretending nothing happened, eating her grapes.
“Wifey, are the grapes really that tasty?” Dibei Chen asked with a smile.
Baili Hongzhuang glanced at the plate. She had already eaten all the grapes, and her hand had just been reaching for thin air.
“Pretty tasty.” Baili Hongzhuang could only continue to act calm.
Dibei Chen grinned and pushed his own platter of grapes to Baili Hongzhuang, “Since you like it, eat some more.”
Baili Hongzhuang stared at Dibei Chen before continuing to eat the grapes. In fact…… these grapes were actually really, really good!
“Baili Hongzhuang, what tricks are you playing!”
Baili Haoxuan walked briskly to Baili Hongzhuang, his young face filled with disgust.
