Chapter 286: The emperor teasing him
It was unknown what Chen Ning was thinking, but she didn’t understand him. She then asked, “Not allowed to like who?”
Chu Shao Bai’s face turned slightly red. As he was about to speak, his face suddenly fell. Making a “xu” sound to Chen Ning, he said, “There’s someone here!”
His expression turned serious, like an enemy was coming.
Chen Ning’s sparkling eyes looked at where Chu Shao Bai was looking. The moonlight shined down on the courtyard like water scattering onto the ground, painting it silver.
She wondered for a bit before seeing a leaf being blown across the ground and a grey clothed figure appeared in the yard.
“Xiao Hei…..” She thought that Mo Chuan was back, but found that it wasn’t him.
That grey clothed figure kneeled down to Chu Shao Bai, “This servant greets King Jing An.”
Chu Shao Bai’s lips slightly curled and he snappily said, “Zhui Feng, why is it you? What do you need this king for to the point of finding me here? You really deserve your Zhui Feng name, no one is able to run from you.”
That grey clothed person stood up, “False praise King Jing An, this servant does not dare. King Jing An, the emperor has sent orders.”
“The emperor?” Chu Shao Bai’s brows knit and he helplessly said, “Say it, what does the emperor need me for? It wouldn’t be to call this king to play chess with him, right? Go and tell the emperor that this king has no free time.”
“Your highness has no time to play chess, but you have time to chat with the Ding Yuan Princess.” That grey clothed person, Zhui Feng gently said and his eyes looked over at Chen Ning.
“Zhui Feng! You brat, your words are truly becoming even more reckless. Don’t think that just because you have the emperor’s support that you can not place this king in your eyes!” Chu Shao Bai’s face turned serious as his expression turned severe.
“This servant does not dare. This servant received his highness’ orders and came to pass them down to your highness. As for whether I have seen or heard anything, this servant has heard and seen nothing.” Zhui Feng bent down in front of Chu Shao Bai in a respectful manner.
Chu Shao Bai’s face eased a bit and he said, “What does the emperor want this king to do?”
Zhui Feng replied, “The emperor has an important matter for your highness and it is something that only your highness can do. This is the emperor’s orders, your highness will understand once you see them.”
He took out a yellow scroll from his chest and handed it to Chu Shao Bai.
Chu Shao Bai thought about it and said, “When the emperor sends me orders, doesn’t he always have you report it to me? Why did he write an imperial decree today?”
He opened the scroll and found that the ink was not dry yet which seemed even more suspicious. He looked around and said, “Did the emperor just write this?”
Zhui Feng coughed and said, “This is the sweat from this servant’s body.”
Chu Shao Bai looked over the orders and found that it was indeed the emperor’s writing. However, when he saw the contents, he angrily said, “These are the orders that only this king can accomplish? Is the emperor teasing me?”
Zhui Feng replied, “This servant does not know, this servant is only in charge of delivering the order. As for whether your highness will accept the orders, that is up to your highness’ discretion.”
Chu Shao Bai gave a cold laugh, “You know everything already.”
“Your highness, the empress dowager is sick and the emperor is busy, so the emperor would only feel assured if your highness performs this task.”
“Alright, I’ll go, I’ll go. Just go and reply to the emperor. Once the sun rises, this king will go immediately.” Chu Shao Bai gave a helpless sigh.
However Zhui Feng stood there without moving.
“Why are you not leaving yet?” Chu Shao Bai looked over and asked.
“The emperor has ordered for your highness to go right now.”
