Chapter 363: Ning’er, don’t cause trouble
Xiao Si immediately hugged his head and rolled back in, moving in a familiar manner. He kneeled down in front of Mo Chuan and respectfully said, “Does the emperor have any other orders?”
“Get a new dress for her.” Mo Chuan coldly ordered.
He had apparently noticed that Chen Ning’s dress was disheveled. That fine sil palace dress was actually covered in soft folds. When he had forcefully hugged her and pushed her down, he had left a lot of incriminating evidence on her clothes.
If she walked out like this, then she would be the focus of public criticism.
Chen Ning uncaringly pulled at the wrinkled clothes and stood up before walking out.
“No need, I have always been straightforward, open and frank, with nothing that should be hidden.”
Mo Chuan grabbed her arm and kicked the door close at the same time.
“Ning’er, don’t cause trouble.”
Xiao Si who had not gone far yet also heard these words and his heart filled with shock.
He had been with the emperor for all these years, but he had never once heard the emperor speak in such a soft tone of voice.
“Ning’er?” Was that the name of the girl who was like a fairy?
His mouth suddenly revealed a large smile as his eyes rolled in his head.
He suddenly remembered what kind of special day today was and he revealed a look of understanding.
Today was not just the flower banquet, but also the day that the emperor would pick his wife.
The Empress Dowager had already given the order, so all the ministers had brought their dressed up daughters to the banquet. They wanted to have the emperor pick their daughter to serve him in the palace.
Of course it would be best if they could become the emperor’s beloved, but they were just afraid the emperor wouldn’t like their daughters.
The emperor really wasn’t that young anymore. Even his nephew, King Ding Yuan already had a wife and a concubine.
But in his royal harem, there was not even a single concubine.
The Empress Dowager often urged him on this matter, but the emperor was too focused on the affairs of the state.
So when Xiao Si saw that there was an extra beauty in the emperor’s lonely room and there was an ambiguous air between the two of them, he was filled with happiness.
This was good news!
This was some incredibly good news!
He had to report this to the Empress Dowager. The Empress Dowager will be filled with joy after hearing this and perhaps her illness will finally become better!
Xiao Si happily moved faster, moving in the direction of the Empress Dowager’s palace.
Inside the study.
Chen Ning took two steps back and curled her lips into a smile before saying. “Ning’er? Doesn’t the emperor feel this is somewhat inappropriate? Shouldn’t you call this minister’s concubine, Ding Yuan Princess?”
“Alright, King Ding Yuan’s princess.”
Mo Chuan’s face went back to normal, restoring that previously calm as water expression.
He crossed his hands behind his back. Wearing these robes, it gave him the aura of an emperor that no one dared to offend or look at.
Those bottomless dark eyes lost all the emotions contained within.
When he looked at her, it was like he was looking at a stranger, not moving at all.
“The eldest princess said you have a request, what is it?” His voice was low and melodic like usual, not containing a single trace of emotion.
Chen Ning look down, no longer looking at him.
That’s right, this was right. This was the way she should be treating him.
“The King Ding Yuan’s Princess Chen wishes to request a royal proclamation to allow me to separate from King Ding Yuan, Chu Shao Yang.” She spoke in a gentle voice, but it contained a firm determination.
“Alright, I’ll allow it.”
Chen Ning did not find his answer strange at all. When she saw that he was the emperor, she knew that he would not deny her request.
Whether it was in private or in public, he had no reason to deny her request.
