Chapter 742: Putting him in an awkward situation
“Xiao Si, move back!” Mo Chuan sitting in the imperial study desk softly waved his hand, calmly looking at the menacing Chu Shao Yang.
“Shao Yang, speak your words slowly, but first let go of Shao Bai. If you do this, who knows what will happen next!” He reprimanded in a cold voice.
Although his expression did not have any waves, his tone and eyes had a rock like pressure that was imperial prestige which people had to respect.
Chu Shao Yang couldn’t help letting go, but he kept glaring at Chu Shao Bai. Chu Shao Bai said in a voice filled with disapproval, “Third brother, this is the royal study. You won’t greet the emperor?”
The ministers’ dissatisfied eyes fell onto Chu Shao Yang’s face and they couldn’t help secretly shaking their head.
Disrespecting the ruler, disrespecting the ruler!
This fiery character truly lost face for the previous emperor!
Chu Shao Bai was stunned in his heart. He immediately calmed the anger on his face as he straightened his clothes and bowed to Mo Chuan.
“This lowly minister greets the emperor.”
“Xiao Si, prepare a seat for King Ding Yuan.” Mo Chuan said.
Xiao Si prepared a seat for Chu Shao Yang. Chu Shao Yang looked at the ministers and saw they all had serious expressions before he sat down.
“Shao Yang, do you know why this one has summoned you into the palace?” Mo Chuan softly said.
“This minister…..does not know.” Chu Shao Yang grinded his back teeth. He slightly raised his head and looked at Mo Chuan, seeing a calm expression on his face. He could not see a single clue, he was not hurt, resentful, nor did he reveal a look of happiness. He couldn’t stop his heart from filling with doubts.
Could Chu Shao Bai have stolen Ning’er, but haven’t taken her to the royal palace?
But he knew that the emperor had never shown any expressions, so he couldn’t see anything just by observing the surface.
He did not believe Chu Shao Bai would be that brave. He wouldn’t dare hide Chen Ning to enjoy her himself, otherwise he wouldn’t want his life anymore.
Thinking about this, he couldn’t help gritting his fists and glaring at Chu Shao Bai.
Chu Shao Bai innocently blinked and said in a curious voice, “Third brother, why do you keep glaring at your little brother? This matter is not related to your little brother at all.”
“Not related to you! Then who is it related to!” Chu Shao Yang immediately flew into a rage.
“Of course it’s related to the East Qin Crown Prince.”
“What nonsense are you saying, how is this matter related to the East Qin Crown Prince at all! It was clearly you…..” Chu Shao Yang raised his voice again and suddenly felt everyone looking at him with disapproval. His lips couldn’t help freezing as he looked at everyone with a strange gaze.
“King Ding Yuan, shouting this loudly in front of the royal court, have you already forgotten the rules of the court?” There were some ministers that couldn’t hold back and gave him a reminder.
Chu Shao Yang’s heart trembled again. He knew that he had suffered a large loss today, but he couldn’t help it.
He couldn’t act like Mo Chuan and Chu Shao Bai. They had clearly done something wrong, but they acted like nothing happened when facing him.
Humph, hypocrites! They’re all hypocrites!
He cursed in his heart.
“Emperor, I wonder, why has the emperor summoned this minister to the palace?” Chu Shao Yang suppressed the rage in his heart as he spoke in a deep voice.
Mo Chuan softly looked at him, “Of course it’s for the matter of the East Qin Crown Prince wanting to compete again. This one has discussed this matter with the ministers and since the East Qin Crown Prince wants to compete again, naturally my West Chu cannot show any weakness. You said the princess was sick, but the crown prince has given you a precious snow ginseng for the princess, so this one believes the princess should be healed after ingesting it, right? So this one called you into the palace to ask you, can the princess compete for my West Chu again?”
