Chapter 1010: What is an eunuch
Chen Ning’s heart couldn’t help sinking a bit.
She let out a sigh and stroked Xiao Ru’s head as she said, “Silly girl, do you know that Xiao Si is an eunuch?”
“I do, an eunuch is someone who serves the emperor. There are many, many eunuchs in the palace, but the one I like is Xiao Si and not another eunuch.”
Chen Ning stared at her. This girl didn’t even know what an eunuch was!
But she didn’t know how to tell her.
Perhaps, she was just opening her heart and liked being together with Xiao Si. She didn’t understand what true love is and she would only understand when she was older.
“Alright, you like Xiao Si, then does he also like you?”
“I don’t know. I haven’t seen him in several days now and haven’t spoken to him. I don’t know if he’s forgotten me or not.” Xiao Ru shook her head and scrunched her nose, looking like she was about to cry.
“Xiao Si hasn’t been in the palace these past two days?”
Chen Ning thought about it, it had indeed been several days since she saw Xiao Si.
Xiao Si was Mo Chuan’s personal servant, he would be wherever Mo Chuan went. However, Mo Chuan had been in the Guan Yu Palace for the past two days and Xiao Si had never shown himself.
This matter was indeed strange.
But then she thought, could it be that Mo Chuan sent Xiao Si and Chu Shao Bai to see the number one divine doctor together?
“Don’t think about it anymore, it’s possible Mo Chuan has sent Xiao Si out on a task. He’ll be back in a few days.” She said.
“No, no, young miss, I actually just saw Xiao Si today, but he ignored me.” Xiao Ru couldn’t help scrunching up her nose.
“You saw him? When? Where?” Chen Ning asked in a surprised voice.
“It was here. This servant saw the emperor come out of the room and call ‘Xiao Si’, before Xiao Si appeared out of nowhere. The emperor brought Xiao Si out the door and into a corridor where the two of them were speaking in a very low voice, this servant didn’t hear a single word. Then this servant saw the emperor’s expression change and with a blink of an eye, the emperor was gone, leaving Xiao Si standing in the corridor in a daze. I called his name and asked him what happened, but he didn’t even look at me, like he didn’t hear me at all. I blinked again and even Xiao Si was gone. Young miss, do you think there’s something wrong with my eyes? IF he really was Xiao Si, why would he ignore me?”
Xiao Ru’s chin came up and tears were dangling off her eyelids.
Chen Ning didn’t say anything as she imagined the scene Xiao Ru described in her mind, causing a strange feeling to come over her.
Didn’t Mo Chuan say that he was going to have Zhui Feng find Chu Shao Bai? Why did he bring Xiao Si to a corridor for a secret talk? What secret do they have that they don’t want others to know? Or could it be they were hiding something from her?
She understood Mo Chuan. He had a calm personality and didn’t show any expressions. Other than the smile he normally showed her, in front of the ministers and in the palace, he always had an ice cold face.
What did Xiao Si say to actually make Mo Chuan’s expression change? Something very big must have happened!
The fact that Mo Chuan never came back meant this matter was very troublesome.
What kind of large matter was it?
Could something have happened to Shao Bai?
She shook her head, throwing that ominous thought to the back of her head.
It can’t be, Shao Bai is fine. He was smart and had strong martial arts, how could he be in danger?
