Chapter 390: Not tired of acting, just tired of watching
“The Empress Dowager can be assured, this minister will take care of my princess and not let her be injured in any way.” Chu Shao Yang immediately replied.
“Not bad, not bad. With King Ding Yuan’s words, what are you still worried about emperor? Come, send this widow back to her palace.”
Empress Dowager Zhou’s fingers were tightly gripping on Mo Chuan’s wrist, but Mo Chuan would not move at all.
“Emperor, do you even not listen to this widow’s words anymore?” Empress Dowager Zhou’s face turned dark, “Alright, since you insist on doing this, this widow will immediately give the order for…..”
“Alright, your son will send mother back.” Mo Chuan inhaled and then supported Empress Dowager Zhou as they slowly walked out the door. Before leaving, he took one long glance at Chen Ning.
This did not escape Chu Shao Yang’s gaze.
His face had a smile, but his eyes were ice cold.
“We bid farewell to the Empress Dowager.”
Everyone in the hall bowed at once, sending the Empress Dowager off.
The young girls were all stunned, not being able to resist revealing their disappointment and frustration.
After Empress Dowager Zhou arrived in the banquet hall, her words were all like riddles. With the exception of a few people who understood what she meant, everyone else was confused.
After the Empress Dowager and the emperor left, the people in hall all began to leave.
This spring’s feast had ended so quickly, it was a surprise for everyone.
“Ning’er, let’s go home.” Chu Shao Yang grabbed Chen Ning’s hand and pulled her away.
His face had a look of rage, but it quickly disappeared. He had a gentle smile as he said, “Alright, this king has said that he wouldn’t touch you, so this king will not eat you.”
Chen Ning entered the carriage waiting outside the palace and couldn’t help letting out a sigh.
How could her tiny arm break Empress Dowager Zhou’s giant leg?
If she wanted to get rid of Chu Shao Yang now, she needed another method.
“Why are you coming in?”
She was leaning against the window contemplating when the carriage’s curtain suddenly opened. Chu Shao Yang walked in from outside and she couldn’t help frowning.
Despite the performance that Chu Shao Yang had displayed in the hall that had deeply impressed everyone, she was not impressed at all.
As an expert of micro expressions, the subtle face changes Chu Shao Yang made did not escape Chen Ning’s eyes.
Even if he did not lie, that did not mean that everything he said was the truth.
“This king just wanted to come in and talk to you.” Chu Shao Yang did not make a move and sat opposite here, staring at her without even blinking.
His voice and expression were both gentle.
Chen Ning leaned against the cart’s walls and uncaringly closed her eyes.
“There are only the two of us here, you don’t need to pretend anymore. You might not be tired of acting, but I’m tired of watching.” Her tone and expression were both uncaring.
The gentleness on his face froze. His heart filled with pain, like a knife being plunged in.
Very good, she had this kind of skill. Any sentence she said would be enough to make him explode with rage.
“You think this king is still acting?” His voice was low, but it contained a storm.
“You’re not?” She softly said, still not opening her eyes.
Coming from the modern era, she had seen all kinds of acting. Chu Shao Yang’s acting was very good and forceful, but that had the opposite effect because it seemed fake since it was too exaggerated.
His words weren’t false, but his acting was too fake!
“Every word this king said is true! My feelings towards you are also true. Do you want this king to pull out my heart and show it to you!”
Her indifference and contempt once again enraged him. He stood up and grabbed her chin, unconsciously using strength with his fingers.
Chen Ning’s chin felt pain. When she opened her eyes, she was staring into his enlarged black eyes filled with rage.
