Chapter 529: She, cannot remain
Empress Dowager Zhou’s face was livid as she stood outside the window, seeing the scene through the small hole in the window.
She did not know how long she had been standing outside the window already.
With Mo Chuan’s martial arts, he would have long sensed that someone was outside the window.
But when his mind was focused like this, he could not hear a thing. Even if he did hear it, he wouldn’t care about it.
Although Su Jin saw nothing, seeing the expression on Empress Dowager’s face, she could already guess what was happening inside the room. Her heart suddenly began to beat fast as an ominous sense of foreboding filled her.
Empress Dowager Zhou left without a single word.
Su Jin quickly followed her.
Only when she was far away from the doctors yard did Empress Dowager Zhou finally stop. She stood in the long and empty palace pathway, looking at the geese flying in the sky.
Her expression had returned to being calm and it seemed like she was at peace.
But Su Jin’s heart continued to beat fast. She stood by Empress Dowager Zhou’s side, not daring to breathe loudly.
“Su Jin, has King Jing An returned?” Empress Dowager Zhou suddenly said.
Su Jin felt this was a bit strange, but she still respectfully replied, “Yes, King Jing An has just returned to the capital this morning.”
“Very good, immediately have King Jing An enter the palace to see this widow.”
After Empress Dowager Zhou said this, she looked at the doctors yard with a cold gaze and said in a low voice, “That girl cannot remain here.”
Su Jin’s heart suddenly skipped a beat and she took in a gasp. She said in a trembling voice, “Empress Dowager, do you want King Jing An to……”
She did not dare finish. Her hand and feet just trembled because she knew that Empress Dowager Zhou was set on killing this time.
“Right!” A cold glow flashed in Empress Dowager Zhou’s eyes and her body slightly trembled. She closed her eyes and the scene she had just seen clearly appeared in front of her eyes.
She endured hardships to nurture a good son and she helped him obtain the emperor’s throne, but he actually did something as shameless as this!
No, if she didn’t meddle now, the emperor would be trapped deeper and deeper until he can no longer return.
“Royal grandmother, you….what did you say?”
Chu Shao Bai had just arrived back in the royal capital and the first thing he did was come see Empress Dowager Zhou.
But before he said anything, Empress Dowager Zhou sent everyone away and then whispered a few words to him.
When he heard it, his expression suddenly fell. He looked at Empress Dowager Zhou with a look of disbelief, as if he didn’t dare believe his own ears.
Empress Dowager Zhou seemed very tired. Since she had come back from the doctors yard, she had been lying on the bed the entire time, feeling very tired.
She slightly closed her eyes and said to Chu Shao Bai, “Shao Bai, this widow knows you are the most obedient to this widow. This matter, this widow does not trust anyone with other than you. This widow believes that you will not disappoint this widow, right?”
Her breath was a bit heavy and her voice was a bit weak, carrying a deep sadness within.
Chu Shao Bai was shocked and he forcefully shook his head.
“Royal grandmother, you can order Shao Bai to do anything else and Shao Bai will do it for you, but this matter, even if it offends royal grandmother, Shao Bai really won’t do it!” He went down on one knee, kneeling in front of Empress Dowager Zhou’s bed.
Empress Dowager Zhou looked up and looked at him with empty eyes that had a look of disappointment, not saying a single thing.
Chu Shao Bai couldn’t help asking, “Royal grandmother, why do you want to kill third sister in law? Has she done something unforgivable to royal grandmother?”
Empress Dowager Zhou shook her head and reached out to hold Chu Shao Bai’s hand, “This widow has found someone to predict the future. She is a danger to our West Chu Country and as long as she’s here, it will affect the life line of our West Chu Country. So, this widow can not let her off.”
