Chapter 430: Why is it you again
“Xiao Bai, can you help me do something else?” Chen Ning suddenly called out to him.
Chu Shao Bai immediately patted his chest and replied, “As long as it’s you, no matter what it is, I will do it for sure! Ning’er, say it, what is it? Do you want me to bring you away? Do you want to leave this place?”
His eyes sparkled as he looked at her, his eyes filled with expectations.
Chen Ning shook her head, “I have a personal maid called Xiao Ru who is currently in the Flowing Cloud Pavilion. I have promised the Empress Dowager that I would remain here to copy the scriptures. Xiao Ru has always served me and I wanted to ask if you could find a reason to ask the Empress Dowager if Xiao Ru can come into the palace to serve me. Aunt Su Jin has to serve the Empress Dowager, so I feel sorry causing trouble for her. I think the Empress Dowager must like you, so if you ask her about it, I’m sure the Empress Dowager will agree.”
She had wanted to Chu Shao Bai to mysteriously take Xiao Ru away, but thinking of what happened with Chu Shao Yang today, he would definitely vent his anger on Xiao Ru. Perhaps Xiao Ru was already locked up by Chu Shao Yang.
Thinking about it, it was most appropriate for the Empress Dowager to face Chu Shao Yang on this matter.
But she knew that Empress Dowager Zhou was very biased against her. Although her feelings were a bit better after the matter with the Spring Jade, that did not mean that Empress Dowager Zhou was willing to see her and stick her head out out for her.
“So it’s about this, this is very easy. I’ll go ask the Empress Dowager tomorrow.”
Chu Shao Bai worked hard to cover up the disappointment in his face and immediately promised her.
He saw that it was getting late outside and it was almost time for the appointment.
With Chen Ning’s thunderbolt eggs, he was filled with confidence.
“Ning’er, I have to go out and do something. I’ll be back before dawn to help you copy some more scriptures.”
Chen Ning smiled and said, “Alright, I’ll wait for your good news.”
Chu Shao Bai gave a laugh and jumped out the window. He started to move and headed off in the direction of the royal capital.
“Please wait King Jing An. The emperor has given a decree and wants to see King Jing An in the royal study.” Suddenly, a grey fluttering figure appeared, standing right in front of him.
“Zhui Feng, why is it you again!”
Chu Shao Bai stopped moving. He was angry when he saw this grey robed person, “It’s this late, why is the emperor looking for me now? If it isn’t anything important, then I’ll come tomorrow. This king is busy right now.”
He did not want to break his promise, but he mainly did not want to lose a chance to teach that brat Hei a lesson.
Zhui Feng respectfully said, “Every time the emperor gives a decree, your highness is always busy.”
“What is it this time? You wouldn’t be wanting this king to go ask for medicine from the divine doctor again, right? Go and report to the emperor, this king’s knees are swollen from kneeling, it’s better to send you this time.” Chu Shao Bai sarcastically said.
“Your highness is joking. The emperor is calling your highness over about a large matter.”
“What large matter?” Chu Shao Bai gave a cold laugh.
“Has your highness heard the news that East Qin has already sent out their messengers and they will soon be arriving in our capital?”
“What? Messengers from East Qin?” Chu Shao Bai’s expression changed and he clenched his teeth. His eyes revealed a severe glow and his hands unconsciously clenched together.
“Yes!” Zhui Feng replied with a bow.
“Alright, this king is going to see the emperor.”
Chu Shao Bai did not hesitate as he headed off towards the royal study.
In the royal study, the candle burned bright.
Mo Chuan was sitting behind the imperial desk, reading a letter on the desk that was quickly sent over. The characters on the letter were slowly becoming darker.
Xiao Si stood to his side, he couldn’t help chattering his teeth.
