Chapter 475: Instigated from behind the scenes
So she did not intend to tell the emperor about this matter, hiding it for a while.
Not to mention the fact that it had only been two hours since Chen Ning entered the palace. Even if the emperor’s eyes were everywhere, it was impossible for him to know that she had been sent away in this short period of time.
“Su Jin, prepare a sedan. This widow will go and see what the emperor is doing. Shao Yang, come with this widow.”
Although Empress Dowager Zhou did not believe it was the emperor, other than the emperor, there was no one else that would have ideas towards Chen Ning.
Who was that royal guard that disappeared with Chen Ning? Was he even really a guard? Could it be that he kidnapped Chen Ning?
Could there really be such a bold guard that had intentions towards Chen Ning after seeing her beauty and kidnapped her?
These questions continued to spin around her mind, making her unable to think it through.
“Su Jin, immediately send someone to investigate which guard it was that sent the princess back! Then bring this person to the emperor’s room. This widow wants to ask him clearly what happened in front of the emperor!”
After Empress Dowager Zhou gave this order, she entered the sedan and then went to the emperor’s palace.
Chu Shao Yang’s face was dark as he followed behind Empress Dowager Zhou. There was a cold killing intent in his eyes.
The so called monk can run, but the temple can’t escape. The royal guards that served the palace were all people of status and were not ordinary citizens.
He believed that there would be no bold guard like this that would actually have ideas towards his, Chu Shao Yang’s princess.
So that royal guard had to be someone else pretending to be one.
The instigator of this matter had to be the emperor!
He wanted to see if Empress Dowager Zhou would still wholeheartedly protect her own emperor son after learning the truth of the matter.
Their group quickly arrived outside Mo Chuan’s palace.
The two eunuchs guarding the gate saw Empress Dowager Zhou’s sedan approaching from the distance and quickly came forward to kneel in front of it.
Empress Dowager Zhou came down from the sedan and did not even look at them as she went in without a word.
“Empress Dowager, the emperor is not in his room.”
“The emperor is not here?”
Empress Dowager Zhou’s footsteps stopped. She turned back to look at the eunuchs kneeling on the ground and her heart beat a bit faster.
Was this matter really related to the emperor?
The flames of anger instantly filled her mind and she entered the sedan without saying a word.
“Go to the royal study.”
She knew the emperor was very diligent. Other than going to the royal court every day, he only went to two other places. One was the royal study where he read reports and the other was his private room.
Occasionally he read reports in the study all night, so it was normal for him to stay in that room.
The royal study wasn’t far from his room and it took half a tea cup’s worth of time to arrive.
Empress Dowager Zhou came off the sedan and angrily charged in, but there was suddenly a person that kneeled down in front fo her.
“Greetings to the Empress Dowager.”
Empress Dowager stopped and found that the person in front of her was Xiao Si. She calmed her expression and said, “Is the emperor inside?”
“Reporting to the Empress Dowager, the emperor is here. He’s inside.”
Xiao Si replied, faintly feeling this situation was bad. The Empress Dowager seemed very angry. He looked up and found Chu Shao Yang behind the Empress Dowager with a sinister look on his face.
Empress Dowager Zhou no longer said anything and moved forward.
“Empress Dowager, please stop. The emperor is discussing political matters with the ministers, so if the Empress Dowager goes in now, it will be inconvenient.” Xiao Si quickly said.
Empress Dowager Zhou looked at the room and saw several figures reflected in the paper window, as well as hearing the vague sounds of voices.
