Chapter 888: Sharp eyes
Su Jin waited in the side hall for half a cup of tea’s time before she heard the sound of footsteps. There were people walking over.
She lowered her head and bowed in greeting.
“Greetings to the emperor, this servant has something to report to the emperor.”
She felt a pair of warm hands holding her hands and heard a clear voice ringing out.
“Aunt Su Jin.”
Su Jin’s body trembled. This voice was very familiar and she raised her head in disbelief. She saw a beautiful face that was like a hibiscus. Her eyes seemed like they were painted, being filled with charm. Her face looked like a picture, refreshing and refined.
Her face was clean without any makeup, clearly having just cleaned her face, with even drops of water still left on it. There was no shocking birthmark on it anymore. This face was clearly Chen Ning’s face!
Only she was still wearing the lame footed girl’s green clothes, with the robe fluttering in the wind.
Su Jin fell down on her butt in shock.
Although she vaguely guessed the green clothed girl could be Chen Ning, when Chen Ning’s real face appeared in front of her eyes, she was still deeply shocked.
“Prin, prin, Princess Consort? No, no, no, cro, cro, Crown Princess? No, no, no, are you miss Chen, Chen, Chen?”
She stuttered in an incoherent manner. She raised her hands to rub her eyes and looked at Chen Ning again.
“It’s me, aunt Su Jin.” Chen Ning pulled her up with a smile, “Aunt truly is smart, you could guess my identity. Aunt, please sit.”
She pulled Su Jin into a chair and she sat opposite to her, picking up a cup of tea and handing it to her.
“Aunt, drink some tea to calm yourself.” She said in a soft voice.
Su Jin took the cup of tea in a daze and drank it in one breath, but she didn’t care about the tea’s taste. Her heart was filled with questions and countless doubts that came out one by one. For a while, she didn’t know what to say.
After a while, she let out a long breath.
“Miss Chen, it really is you. You…..How could you be this bold, you actually used this method to tease the Empress Dowager. If the Empress Dowager knew, she would be very angry.” Although she used a reprimanding voice, there was still worry in her voice.
Chen Ning looked down in a sorry manner and said in a low voice, “I know that lying to the Empress Dowager like this is wrong, it is all my fault…..”
“This matter is unrelated to you, it was all this one’s idea!”
Mo Chuan’s voice suddenly came from the door.
Su Jin was shocked and quickly got out of the chair to bow, “This servant greets the emperor.”
“Aunt Su Jin doesn’t need to be this polite. Since you came to find this one, you should already know the truth and can guess Chen Ning’s identity. Not bad, the empress picked by mother is indeed Ning’er!” Mo Chuan walked over to Chen Ning with large steps. He held her hand and took a deep look at her.
“Everything was this one’s idea. This one had her change her appearance to let hare appear in front of mother with a different appearance and let mother notice her talent and virtue. In the end, mother does have sharp eyes, picking her from a group of girls and appointing her this one’s empress. Aunt Su Jin, is there anything wrong with what this one did?”
His eyes sparkled as they looked at Su Jin.
Su Jin was suppressed by his aggressiveness, lowering her head. She felt it was wrong, but she couldn’t say what was wrong with it.
“This servant…..This servant doesn’t know if what the emperor did was right or wrong, but, but…..”
