After the Divorce, I Was Spoiled By the Prince - Chapter 1098: Does the emperor want to find a noble concubine to serve in the bed?
Chapter 1098 Is the emperor looking for a concubine to serve in the bed?
Zhang Jixiang didn’t understand Xiao Ce’s intention, but this scene seemed familiar. The emperor also grabbed the wrist of the concubine Xian before, by the way, the emperor first grabbed the wrist of the concubine!
Could it be the sequelae caused by the emperor grabbing the wrist of the imperial concubine?
Thinking about this, he gathered up his courage and asked, “Does the emperor want to find a noble concubine to sleep with you?!”
Xiao Ce was about to rest when he heard the words and looked at Zhang Jixiang, his eyes were as sharp as blades.
Zhang Jixiang’s legs suddenly softened, and he fell to his knees in fright: “Slave, slaves talk too much, slaves should be punished!”
He slapped himself in the face a few times, until Xiao Ce’s icy voice sounded on top of his head: “Don’t mention the imperial concubine before me in the future, step back!”
“Yes, the servant obeys the order!” Zhang Jixiang rolled and crawled and exited the dormitory.
He wiped the sweat from his forehead, feeling lingering fears. The current emperor is not as gentle as before, and he must not make his own decisions in front of the emperor.
The emperor doesn’t like the concubine and the concubine is something that the whole harem knows, how can he make such a low-level mistake again?
In the next few days, the harem was calm, and Xiao Ce stayed in the Hall of Mental Cultivation except for the Hall of Supreme Harmony to discuss matters with courtiers, or deal with memorials.
The most difficult person these days is Zhao Yu.
Because every time he goes to court, he will be watched closely by Xiao Ce. Xiao Ce seemed to dislike him and called his name every day. If he answered badly, he would be reprimanded.
Now, even Mrs. Zhao is uneasy.
Back at the Zhao residence, Mrs. Zhao specially called Zhao Yu to the study to ask what was going on.
“The emperor has been picking on your faults frequently these days, do you know why?” Mrs. Zhao asked in a deep voice.
“Grandson doesn’t know.” Zhao Yu lowered his head and replied.
“Did the incident of the stand-in that came out last time make the emperor dissatisfied with you?” Mrs. Zhao thought thoughtfully.
When this rumor first came out, he asked Zhao Yu to ask, and Zhao Yu replied firmly, Yueqing had nothing to do with Qin Guifei.
Of course he also knew that there were no similarities between these two women. He thought that this matter was revealed. Later, Qin Zhao was put into the cold palace, and the time point of being put into the cold palace was too close, and he was also uneasy.
It was only later that Concubine Qin left the cold palace, and the incident seemed to have passed. I don’t want the emperor to stare at Yu’er again. This is unusual.
“Yueqing is not a substitute for the concubine at all. I have explained it many times…” Zhao Yu was a little excited when he mentioned this.
Mrs. Zhao looked at Zhao Yu coldly: “Why are you so excited?”
“It was me who was wronged, how could I not be excited? If there is nothing else, I will retire first.” After Zhao Yu finished speaking, he walked away quickly.
Mrs. Zhao looked at Zhao Yu’s back with a heavy heart.
If the emperor really doesn’t like Yu’er, Yu’er’s future will only be affected. Yu’er is the hope of the Zhao family and must not be ruined by a woman.
If the rumor of a substitute really makes the emperor unhappy, if necessary, he will send Yueqing away, or…
In the Shoukang Palace, Qin Zhao also moved his business.
The Dragon Boat Festival is a big festival. Since she is in charge of the affairs of the six palaces, this matter must be done properly. In addition, the birthday of the Empress Dowager is also in May. No matter how low-key the Empress Dowager is, the Empress Dowager’s birthday cannot be ignored.
She was busy that day when she heard Xiao Ce’s footsteps approaching.
Xiao Ce came to greet the Empress Dowager on purpose, but the Empress Dowager was thinking in her heart that she had to find a way to make Xiao Ce and Qin Zhao reconcile.
She confessed to Li Mammy in a low voice, and Li Mama responded.
Unfortunately, Mamma Li came back alone, and she shook her head at the Empress Dowager. Qin Zhao was busy and did not want to come over to face the saint.
Xiao Ce saw the lawsuit between the Empress Dowager and Li Ma, and asked, “Is there something wrong with the imperial grandmother?”
“Ai’s family wanted to let girl Zhao come over, but who knew that girl would not want to. Ai’s family remembered that the two of you used to be very close, but now that girl Zhao doesn’t want to see you, did you do something to provoke girl Zhao? Not fast?” The Empress Dowager said bluntly.
Xiao Ce thought that he didn’t want to see Qin Zhao either, but Qin Zhao’s move should be to advance and retreat, he was used to seeing such a woman’s move.
“I don’t want to see her.” Xiao Ce opened his lips indifferently.
He has no likes or dislikes towards any woman, but he has an indescribable rejection of Qin Zhao.
“Don’t let the girl Zhao hear what you said, or she will hold grudges and will not be with you in the future.” The Empress Dowager said nervously.
Xiao Ce didn’t like to hear the Empress Dowager mention Qin Zhao again, so he simply stood up and said, “I’m here to say goodbye to the imperial grandmother. I am relieved to see that the imperial grandmother is well…”
“Aijia’s birthday is coming soon. Girl Zhao is busy with this matter. You don’t care about how Aijia’s birthday banquet is organized?” The Empress Dowager quickly thought of a way to get the two together.
Xiao Ce was at a loss for words.
If it wasn’t for the Empress Dowager’s reminder, he would have forgotten that the Empress Dowager’s birthday was in May, very close to the Dragon Boat Festival.
“A Ce, go and see how the girl Zhao is planning. It’s not long before the Dragon Boat Festival. Aijia is afraid that she will be too busy. Go and see if there are any omissions.” The Empress Dowager patted the back of Xiao Ce’s hand. : “Don’t be too harsh on Zhao girl. She was really impulsive that time and hurt you, but she definitely didn’t mean it…”
Afraid that the Empress Dowager would talk again, Xiao Ce replied, “I’ll go and see.”
Qin Zhao, who was eavesdropping with ears pricked up, knew that Xiao Ce was coming to find him, and immediately woke up.
She dared to be sure that Xiao Ce would pick on her fault, which was not good.
When Xiao Ce came over, Qin Zhao had returned to normal.
According to her idea, soldiers will come to block, and water will come to cover, so there is nothing to be afraid of.
Seeing Xiao Ce coming, she came forward to invite An in a lawful manner.
Xiao Ce wanted to pick out the mistakes in her salute, but she learned the palace rules very well, better than others in the harem, especially the posture of the salute was not only dignified, but also very beautiful, it is not an exaggeration to say that it is pleasing to the eye.
Xiao Ce couldn’t pick out Qin Zhao’s fault, but he was not in a hurry to spare Qin Zhao’s courtesy.
Qin Zhao maintained his salute posture, motionless like a mountain, and the bottom plate was very stable, without shaking at all.
This is also thanks to her previous life, in order to win Xiao Ce’s favor, she trained herself in court etiquette day and night, just because Xiao Ce said that she was unruly and did not look like a noble concubine.
Yes, thanks to the training in the previous life, when Xiao Ce made things difficult for her again, she was as stable as Mount Tai.
Zhang Jixiang saw that a quarter of an hour had passed, and the emperor could not help but be greeted by the imperial concubine.
Xiao Ce Dan glanced at Zhang Jixiang, Zhang Jixiang immediately lowered his head, and his back was cold.
At this time, Xiao Ce finally showed mercy and opened his mouth: “No gift.”
He also had to admit that Qin Zhao did learn the rules well, which was undeniable. Even when he deliberately made things difficult, he seemed very stable, as a noble concubine should look.
