The Treacherous Concubine’s Guide To Whitewashing - Chapter 132
Jiandong County, Quanzhou.
As the largest port in the southeast, there are thousands of ships coming and going here every day.
Whenever you walk to the vast harbour outside the city, the densely moored boats make people think that they are entering a bustling market, one by one, like houses after another.
There are more people who come and go than ships, porters who carry and unload goods, business travels with various accents, fangs for attracting middlemen, and government officials who are responsible for inspections and registration… all kinds of people decorate the entire terminal. Very bustling and lively.
The northernmost ship had just docked, and the porter skilfully received the thrown cable, and then seven or eight pier workers stepped forward and quickly set up a pontoon board to connect the ship to the shore.
A potbellied businessman led a group of subordinates to the shore. His reddish-brown hair and blue eyes. His appearance was quite novel in the past few years. No one has been willing to look back on the streets of Quanzhou City in recent years. At a glance. Since the opening of sea trade, these Panbang merchants have been increasing day by day.
The fat businessman swept his eyes on the shore and immediately saw his old friend.
“Lao Chao, God and Buddha bless you, I want to kill you!” He quickly stepped forward and hugged his long-standing business partner.
Chao Hua, the treasurer of Runsheng Bank, Quanzhou’s number one commercial bank, laughed and hugged Haishang, “Sudar, you can count on it. I have not seen you for more than ten days.”
“Don’t mention it, there was a storm on the road. Our 20 or so boats were blown into the South Seas, and we made a big circle before coming over. Three of them sank in the middle.” The fat businessman Sudar said with a wry smile.
Sudar is a businessman in the Kingdom of Tianluo, and he has made a lot of money by traveling between the Central Plains and the West in the past few years. Although he is a foreigner, he speaks fluent Beijing accent.
Hearing that Sudar had brought more than 20 boats on this trip, Chao Hao’s eyes glowed, “What good stuff did you bring on this trip?”
In recent years, because the empress loves foreign products from overseas, the whole capital has become popular. For example, recently the ladies of the noble and wealthy families in the capital like to use Western-style embroidered folding fans and piecing together patterns with precious stones, which is a combination of Chinese and Western.
Hearing Chao Hao’s question, Sudar pretended to smile mysteriously, “Brother Chao is refreshed with the guarantee of this trip.”
Chao Hao was overjoyed. He didn’t have much hope, but he didn’t expect that this old friend would really get something rare.
“Will it be another novel bibliography?”
Sudar immediately shook his head: “Where do so many books come from? There are a few books in the world that you don’t have in Tianyu.”
“That’s true.” Chao Hao said quite contentedly. In terms of book knowledge, there is no country in the world that can compare with Tianyu. After several years of collection, it has “gathered all classics in one room.” This is the rhetoric of the Puzhen Great Library in Beijing.
As Tianyu’s first national library, it was built by Her Majesty the Empress herself. Now it has become a holy place for scholars all over the world. The complete library of books in the library is unparalleled in the world, and it has also driven several nearby towns and counties into The academic center of academies.
In recent years, because of the development of maritime trade, all kinds of Southeast Asian and Western commodities have become common commodities. There are also many businessmen and scholars who ventured out to sea and traveled to other countries. After returning, they brought back the customs and customs of various countries. Let everyone be more sure that the most prosperous and wealthy country in the world is Tianyu.
Sudar urged his old friend to get on the ship, and Chao Hua was surprised: “It’s fine if there are goods to be moved down, so why bother to get on the ship to see it?”
Sudar smiled mysteriously: “My batch of goods, it’s not easy to get it out, otherwise it won’t work.”
“Take off?” Chao Hao laughed, “Could it be that you still have legs with these goods?”
Wasn’t it just that he had long legs, got on the boat, and entered the spacious captain’s room. Looking at the samples sent by Sudar’s men, Chao Hao almost stared out his eyes.
Four young men and women were brought in. They were all twelve or three years old. They were two white and two black. One white was a girl with blond hair and blue eyes. The other was a teenager with brown hair and blue eyes. They were all dressed in light gauze, black. The two of them are also a man and a woman, with dark skin and shiny skin in the sun.
Chao Hao had also seen Kunlun slaves raised in the mansion of the nobles in the capital. They were so powerful that they did not expect Sudar to bring this goods.
And this pair of white-skinned children, some have spread from Beirong over the years.
All four of them were prepared and thin, as if they were hungry for a long time. Thinking of following the ship to drift away, Chao Hua can imagine the hardships along the way. Take a closer look, the faces of several people are quite beautiful, and after a few months of rest, they must be beautiful.
The two stewards stepped forward and unceremoniously pulled off the clothes of several people. Probably these Westerners developed early, although they were still young, they were already quite handsome.
For fear of losing his attitude, Chao Hao quickly looked away. Looking at the dead fat man, his expression was complicated.
Sudar smiled and said, “I will give these to Brother Chao first, there are still a lot of them.”
There are many more… Thinking of the twenty-odd big ships mentioned by the fat man just now, Chao Hua immediately thought, wouldn’t it be said that there are seven or eight thousand people.
“No, no, it’s only more than five thousand now.” Sudar rubbed his hands. In fact, when this trip started, he packed more than 8,000 people in the big boat, but in the middle of the storm, it was too long and many slaves died.
Chao Hao groaned and asked, “How did you think of doing this business?”
After hearing these words, Sudar couldn’t help feeling sad. Why did he take the risk and sell slaves? It was not because the business with Tianyu was getting worse and worse.
The business with Tianyu started from his grandfather’s generation and has been running for decades. They transported western spices, jewelry and some handicrafts, and then transported them back to tea, paper, silk, and white porcelain. Once and again, every time I can make a lot of money.
Since when, as if it was from the enthronement of the female emperor five years ago.
The things he shipped have gradually become unpopular.
For example, three years ago, he shipped more than a dozen ships of pepper and matsutake and other spices. He thought he could sell for a good price as usual, but he arrived in Quanzhou but was told that these kinds of things are now being planted in several states and counties. Become very cheap. The result was a miserable trip!
In the second year, he learned his lesson and bought a large number of Western clocks and other handicrafts. He was told that this thing was also mass-produced in Tianyu, and the price was even cheaper than the one he bought in China.
If you don’t say anything, you will be tears if you say too much!
Fortunately, his old friend Chao Hao gave him an idea. The empress not only likes all kinds of Western products, but also all kinds of books overseas. Somo returned to her home country and got a batch of mythological books to be delivered. With this thing, Not to mention the high price of the government office, he also waved his hand to avoid his last business tax, and he made a small vote.
But now that I have visited a few times, I found that there are not many books that can be offered. After all, China is far from prosperous overseas, and there are not many books and classics. Moreover, there are many merchants who donate classics, and the books that have been registered are worthless.
The business with Tianyu didn’t make any money, Sudar still insisted on running this trade route, because the business back home was still prosperous. The purchase price of Tianyu’s silk brocade cotton cloth, which is popular in the West, has continued to drop over the years. It is said that it has several weaving machines, which greatly reduces manpower. I heard that Jiangnan has also established a silk factory to hire When a large number of women workers weave together, the fabric is cheaper.
By transporting these cloths back to his home country, Sudar has also made a profit in the past few years, but it is far worse than the prosperity of the previous years.
Listening to Sudar complaining with tears in his nose, Chao Hao couldn’t help but sympathize.
As the chief treasurer of Runsheng Firm, he is backed by the nobles in the capital. My own business has become more and more popular, and I have indeed noticed that these overseas businessmen have not been doing business well in recent years.
Since the enthronement of the female emperor, Tianyu’s national strength has been flourishing. There are various refreshing things in the workshop, the Department of Ordnance, and the Sinong Temple. I heard that the Ministry of Rites has also established a translation department to compare and translate those overseas classics. Several academic subjects in Gongqifang and Taiyuan Hospital were quite inspired by checking for leaks.
Coupled with the good weather in the past few years, the people have become richer. In comparison, the business of these Haike is not as good as in previous years.
Sudar had no other choice, and when he went back this time, looking at the black slaves at home, he had an idea and thought of this idea.
You Tianyu can produce all kinds of spice crafts, but there is one thing that you absolutely can’t produce. People’s skin color and hair color are all born. Can you make yourself out of white and black?
So this time he became a seller of wealth, bought a large number of black slaves, and bought a large number of slaves from several war-torn city-states, determined to earn a lot of votes.
But Chao Hua was not so optimistic.
Since Tianyu was founded, there have been laws and regulations that don’t force good to be cheap. Even registered servants cannot sell and kill without authorization. A fixed process is required. After all, in the view of Confucianism, the business of human trafficking has always been despised by the government and the people. In the dentistry industry, the profession of renyazi is also the last one and is quite discriminated against.
Runsheng’s own firm has always been doing jewelry and fragrance business. Wouldn’t it be ridiculed if you touch this?
Seeing Chao Hao hesitating, Sudarton became anxious. If he didn’t accept this batch of goods, let him take it back. Yes, just throw it into the sea. You must die on the road.
“Can you make a generalization? These are all animal-like things.” He was right. Black slaves in his country were always used as large livestock, and those white-skinned slaves were also the sons of defeated nations. People, this is a kind of slave.
Chao Hao comforted: “Don’t worry, wait for me to ask for instructions.”
A few months later.
In the palace, Yuan Luo was sluggish for three minutes when he heard that there was a slave trade in several large coastal ports.
She had known before that there were some Kunlun slaves in the capital, but the number was not large, and most of them were brought by merchants from the Western Regions.
Large-scale slave trade from the sea…Can ships of this era support the mass slave trade? Think about it. After all, from the west to Tianyu, from the map, it is not as far away as the American slave trade, and there are constant ports in the middle to supplement food and water.
Yuan Luo asked Jin Linsi to investigate and found that not only the southeast coast, but also the noble merchants in the capital, there were also many blond slaves and black-haired Kunlun slaves.
“I heard that several coal mines in the south have brought in a lot of Kunlun slaves. They eat less than the local miners, do a lot, and don’t have to pay.” Cheng Wei reported the news.
“The big families in the capital also bought these strange-looking servants and compared them with each other. Last month, the third son of the Amber in the south was interrupted by the old man. It is said that it was because of an affair with a white slave. He gave birth to a child with a weird appearance and was ridiculed by other families. The elder Amber heard about the incident, so he beat his son severely, and ordered the slave girl and baby to be driven out of the house.” Cheng Wei paused. Suddenly, the old man is also decisive, otherwise he will definitely impeach them.
“According to the investigation, it started with a businessman named Sudar, and other business travelers followed suit because the price could be sold.”
“I heard that in the West, there are still a few big businessmen who hire soldiers to rob villages and cities in small countries.”
The latter piece of information was learned from the unlucky slaves.
Yuan Luo was stunned, “Why haven’t you mentioned these things before?”
“This…” Cheng Wei was ashamed. “The slaves who have been sold are not registered as slaves in the government, and they are all written as livestock. There was no detailed investigation at the beginning.” Moreover, Tianyu had also had business dealings with the West before. Selling Kunlun slaves, noble and wealthy families occasionally buy them to guard the door. Therefore, Jin Linsi didn’t take it seriously, until recently discovered that there were more and more servants in the capital, so he began to investigate.
Yuan Luo frowned.
Water transportation is the most convenient way. In recent years, she has dug canals and supported the business exchanges between Nanyang and the West.
Because of the emergence of several new textile tools, the silk weaving industry developed rapidly in Tianyu. There was even a silk weaving factory in the south of the Yangtze River. Originally, some courtiers believed that working with women would easily corrupt the atmosphere. The shopkeeper of the silk weaving factory is also smart, using women from management to guarding. Anyway, there are more and more women who know martial arts in this world, and there are more and more women who know how to learn arithmetic, and now there is nothing to say about even the most old-fashioned scholarship.
Because of the great development of the silk weaving industry, Tianyu’s trade with foreign countries has a huge surplus. Unexpectedly, in order to reverse this disadvantage, Western businessmen did not bring in some smoky things, but instead moved their brains on the slaves.
Of course it is impossible for Yuan Luo to sit back and watch this evil deeds develop, and according to her wishes, immediately prohibit it.
The officials soon submitted a draft of the edict.
Yuan Luo read it from beginning to end, pointed out several changes, and handed them to them for revision and copying.
While waiting, she went for a walk in the back garden.
Cheng Wei served by the side, rather regretful, “I heard that these Kunlun slaves are inherently powerful, and the miasma in the south are full of miasma. These Kunlun slaves are talented and are not too afraid of heat. It is just right to cultivate the fields and dig mining.”
Four years ago, the Southern State of Defiance, under the name of an ominous female lord, refused to claim tribute. Miao Zifang and Gu Yi led the army to conquer the army. As a result, Tianyu added two more productive counties. Two years ago, Tianyu’s marine merchant fleet went to sea for trade and encountered a storm, and was swept onto a vast island. The island is rich in water plants and vast land, with only a few slash-and-burn barbarian tribes. After the fleet returned to the court, Tianyu added another county…
These areas are rich in soil and water, rich in rice, melons and fruits, and require a lot of manpower to farm. The only hindrance is the miasma, and the heat is unbearable. Most of the people in the Central Plains are not suitable for the local climate. It is just right to use these slaves.
Yuan Luo paused, then turned to look at him, with sharp eyes: “Are there many people who have ideas like you?”
Cheng Wei was taken aback, and quickly knelt down and confessed: “There are a lot of them.” This investigation of the slave trade has also listened to the opinions of all parties. Most of them hope to continue. After all, Tianyu’s development over the years requires too much manpower. too much. If you feel that it is not right to classify them as livestock, you can set up a native place such as a low slave under the slave for classification management. These barbarians cannot be compared with the people of the Central Plains. Unexpectedly, the empress objected so strongly.
Yuan Luo frowned. As she became the throne, she was far more prestigious than before. Not speaking for a while, Cheng Wei felt even more panic.
“Get up.” Yuan Luo finally sighed, “The slavery matter, although it is fast for a while, has caused endless disasters, corrupting the folk customs, and burying disasters. As for the miasma in the south, you can use medicine to repel insects. People who move slowly in the future will naturally adapt to the environment.”
The slave trade seems to be profitable now, but after a long time, it will bury hidden worries, increasing in number, and even changing the ethnic composition of the entire country after a few generations. Especially when the race and religion are too different.
Cheng Wei quickly confessed his mistake: “It was the ministers who were ignorant and treated the slaves harshly, hurting the heavens, and even more detrimental to my Tianyu and majesty. The ministers only looked at the small profits in front of them and forgot the long-term plan.
After giving the will, Yuan Luo felt a little depressed. She knew that it was just a will. I was afraid that it would be difficult to ban this hugely profitable trade from the root. She could only do her best to suppress it.
That night, Yuan Luo looked at the time after handling government affairs.
Putting on the cloak, the palace man followed from a distance and went to the garden to enjoy the scenery alone.
Just after a snowfall, the plum blossoms in the garden were just blooming, and the fragrance was clear. Yuan Luo stood on a small hill. After a short time, there was a familiar electronic sound in her ears, [The host has successfully completed the task, do you choose to return? The original world? 】
Every year it is this hour of the day to inquire, Yuan Luo has become accustomed to it.
There are still three options, [Yes], [No], [I’ll talk about it next time].
Yuan Luo was about to continue to play the ostrich spirit and chose [I will talk about it next time].
The sudden blunt electronic sound continued.
[Important reminder! Important reminder! Important reminder! The host has selected “Said next time” five times before. If you continue to choose “Say next time” for the sixth time, it will be equivalent to “No” and stay in this world directly. 】
Yuan Luo’s hand froze suddenly.
Does this mean that you can only choose between [Yes] and [No].
She panicked all of a sudden, the final choice came so quickly, she also planned to choose [say next time] until seventy or eighty times, and then she can’t afford it again…
Can only choose so many times, this broken system is too stingy!
It seemed that she had sensed her thoughts, and the system went on to say, [It takes a huge amount of energy to locate the connection between different worlds, so after the mission is successful, you should not waste time. 】
“If I return to the real world…”
[The host will wake up directly in bed and return to the original time. 】
In other words, the experience in this world is like a dream, returning to reality or the time and place before going to bed.
“Then this world…”
[The existence of this world host will not change, and all influences exerted will exist as it is. 】
There is still her in this world, a legend from a noble concubine to a female emperor, and the policies she left behind will continue. Nowadays, the government is still peaceful. Presumably the clan will choose a suitable person to inherit the throne, or let her in the remaining time Specify one.
Now that the Qing Ming Dynasty is clear, the hidden dangers inside and outside have been eliminated, and the good ministers are all present. Even if the successor is not a peerless Ming prince, the trend of Tianyu’s revival will not change.
It’s time to go back. She was originally from that world, but she was unable to move the hand she wanted to click.
In this world, she has too many thoughts, and she can’t let go of the various government affairs carried out one by one in the political affairs, the people and things that have met along the way, one by one, one by one.
The one who can’t let go is the one who is far away now…
Cheng Wei walked back and forth at the foot of the mountain with several palace men, feeling anxious. The female emperor has been climbing and enjoying the plum blossoms for more than an hour. Although they were previously told not to disturb them, it has been so long…
After hesitating again and again, he finally made up his mind and quickly climbed along the mountain road.
Then she saw Yuan Luo leaning against a plum tree, her face flushing.
He was taken aback, and hurried forward: “Your Majesty, what’s the matter with you?”
Yuan Luo looked up at him, “It’s just a little dizzy, it doesn’t interfere.”
Cheng Wei was anxious and complained: “Your Majesty, forgive me.” Then he put his hand on her forehead. The strange temperature made him nervous.
He hurriedly helped Yuan Luo down the mountain, and at the same time ordered someone to pass on the imperial doctor.
Since Yuan Luo became the throne, she has been in good health, but she did not expect to fall ill at the time of the New Year’s Day, and the entire palace was panicked. Several experts in the Fengchi Department of the Taiyuan Hospital hurriedly arrived for continuous consultation.
Several important civil and military officials including Prime Minister Wei and Miao Zifang also entered the palace one after another. Hearing that the imperial doctor confirmed the diagnosis, his Majesty just occasionally felt the cold, and everyone was relieved.
But as the female emperor’s fever continued, this tone soon came up again. In the past few days, Yuan Luo’s condition was fluctuating, making all the courtiers anxious to death. Si Konglin and Wei Jiaojiao were also having trouble swallowing. Even impatient courtiers suggested offering sacrifices to heaven.
Compared with everyone’s rush, Yuan Luo on the hospital bed didn’t feel much.
The only benefit of being sick is that you can finally take a vacation, you don’t have to get up early every morning.
Yuan Luo drank the medicine that day and slept in a daze on the bed, suddenly feeling a gentle warmth on her cheeks.
I opened my eyes blindly, and I saw the figure who missed the night.
Gu Yi was sitting in front of the bed, staring at her.
Yuan Luo stretched out his hand, he immediately held it, feeling the firm and warm strength, Yuan Luo was finally convinced that he was a real person, not dreaming. Suddenly there was soreness in the eyes.
She smiled and said, “Why did you come back so early?”
After getting married, Yuan Luo did not restrain him from staying with him for many years. He was originally an eagle soaring in the sky, with his career and battlefield. In the past few years, he led the army to conquer the north and the south, and first went south to destroy the Xingxu Kingdom with Miao Zifang. At the beginning of this year, he went north again and went to Tiangeguan to alternate with Zuo Bingfan for a year.
There was also a time when Acacia was deep in love. One day is not like three autumns, and I long for him to come back as soon as possible and be by my side. But they all held back.
“I heard that you were ill, so I went a little faster.” Gu Yi whispered.
According to the original itinerary, he would not arrive in five or six days. He heard the news of Yuan Luo’s illness halfway down the road, where he could be restrained, and immediately galloped to the palace.
While talking, Gu Yi helped her up and took the medicine from the palace.
Soon after Gu Yi came back, Yuan Luo’s condition improved. Three days later, the imperial doctor diagnosed and treated and said he was cured.
Chaoye finally relaxed.
On this day, after having dinner, the two went to the back garden without letting the palace staff follow them, and walked side by side on the snowy path.
With a white fox fur collar around her rosy cheeks, Gu Yi was sure that she was completely healed, but still couldn’t let go.
“The imperial doctor said that your illness was caused by stagnation and intractable. Is there anything to worry about?”
“It’s just wind and cold, and it’s not an important illness. You are too nervous.”
Yuan Luo spoke lightly, looking at the three selection boxes still floating in front of her, but her mood was tangled.
In fact, that night, she couldn’t make a choice at all, and if she didn’t make a choice for a moment, these things that others could not see would always float in front of her like gangrene.
Distracted by this selection frame, Yuan Luo slipped without paying attention to the ice and snow under her feet. Gu Yiyan supported her wisely.
He helped her to the side promenade and raised her feet.
“I’m fine.” Yuan Luo said softly.
Gu Yi looked up at her, with a complicated light floating.
Yuan Luo trembled slightly, she knew that she could not hide from him, the two were so close and understood each other, he knew that he had something on his mind.
Yuan Luo thought for a while and turned the subject, “Maybe the government is too worried these days.”
She told a few tangled troubles. One of them is the rampant slave trade.
“Do you think it is impossible to ban it by decree?” Gu Yi immediately grasped the point.
“Yes, there is an old philosopher’s saying that if there is 50% profit, it will take the risk; for 100% profit, it will dare to trample all the laws of the world; if there is 300% profit, it Just dare to commit any crime, or even risk hanging.” From Cheng Wei’s previous words, Yuan Luo knew that in the face of huge profits, he had made a clear will and could not stop trade on the black market.
“Just let the military guard at the dock pay more attention.” Gu Yizheng persuaded: “A Luo, don’t worry about these things, things in the world are hard to be perfect. Since you became a king, you have been a rare Mingjun, visible to the naked eye. In the past few years, the life of the people all over the world has passed the better,”
auzw.com”Master, thank you for your explanation, I was the one who took the picture.” Yuan Luo smiled.
This is the case with major affairs in the government. Every time a problem is solved, there will always be new problems. She also looked away. Things that cannot be solved now can be waited until the future. Anyway, as long as she can ensure that the entire court is on the right path and make Tianyu stronger and stronger, all these problems will not be a problem.
Gu Yi glanced over Yuan Luo’s front, and paused a little. There is nothing but nothing.
He stared at her, and cast his eyes down for a long time: “Apart from these political affairs, what else is there to feel frustrated?”
This guy is not easy to fool, and is intuitively scary. Yuan Luo had a headache, so she raised her head and kissed him on the cheek, and said with a smirk: “It’s probably lovesickness.”
Since he came back, his condition has recovered. In the palace, there are really many people in the palace quietly talking about the empress’s lovesickness, envious of how deep the relationship between the empress and the general is.
Gu Yi’s eyes were dim, she didn’t want to say, he didn’t force it.
Taking advantage of the trend, she took her hand and pulled her into her arms.
Yuan Luo tried not to look at the selection box in front of him. The two sat on the corridor side by side, watching the floating light flashing among the trees outside, and the snow, like stars falling on the earth.
“You’re all thinner.” Yuan Luo whispered while stroking his thin cheeks. He has been unable to make a choice, except for his career, the most important thing is because of him.
“Leading soldiers are out there, no one is thin.” Gu Yi smiled low.
The two talked about their parting time for a year, and Gu Yi told about the strange events of the border guards. For example, as a domestic checkpoint today, one of the important tasks of Geguan is to maintain the smoothness of Yindan Lake and eliminate bandits from all directions.
With the increasing prosperity of Yindan Lake’s business roads, it has also attracted many criminals, some of them are the remnants of Cai Yunheng who fled after slaying the Beirong tribe, some are sand thieves who flee after attacking the Western Regions, and even the underworld people in Tianyu. All tried to take a bite in this prosperous place. Compared with fighting against Beirong Jingqi, this job is not heavy, but it is very trivial, and it takes many years of hard work.
“Everyone is fine, Cai Yunheng just returned from the far north.”
Last year, a tribe defected. After being defeated, the remnants fled into the northern ice sheet. Cai Yunheng led his army to pursue it, and it took more than half a year to return.
“I saw Lian Yanqiu last month.” When he said this, he paused.
“Did you say anything?” Yuan Luo asked absently. After the new year, it is time to recall and reappoint these generals who have been stationed in the north for five or six years.
“I have said a lot about the north. And…” Gu Yi lowered his gaze, “He also asked me to bring you a word.”
Yuan Luo looked at him curiously.
Gu Yi continued: “He said that he has new guesses about the history of His Majesty, and he waits for the day when he returns to Beijing to confirm each other.”
Yuan Luo’s mouth twitched, this guy is really…
Gu Yi stared at her. In fact, Lian Yanqiu said a lot. During this year’s guard duty, he had frequent contacts with Lian Yanqiu due to military affairs, and gradually became familiar with him. He didn’t expect such a time to get along well before. He is indeed a surprisingly talented person, knowledgeable and brilliant.
Once he finished going out and suppressing the bandits, Lian Yanqiu led others to respond, and the battle stopped. The two walked on the passage of Yindan Lake, talking about the political changes in the Western Regions and the next strategy plan.
Speaking of half of it, there was heavy snowfall in the sky, and countless falling snowflakes scattered from the dark sky.
At that time, the heavens and the earth were all clear and clean, and the smooth surface of the lake was set against the falling snow, just like the world of ice, snow and glazed glass in Buddhist legends, and it was so beautiful.
Both of them could see the magic, and for a while, Gu Yi sighed: “With such a beautiful scenery, it’s no wonder that there are always some people with bad brains secretly eating these things.”
The snow salt under your feet is too pure, as if it comes with Buddha light. Even though local officials have ordered and said that this salt is poisonous and inedible. There are still many people, especially business travelers in the north and south, quietly trying. It is said to have the air of ice and snow, and it is more delicious than folk sea salt. There are even some business travelers who secretly pack snow salt and want to take it back for long-term consumption. The government is also helpless. For such a fool, only one can be found and one is severely punished.
Lian Yanqiu laughed: “The beauty is deceptive, if the female emperor made it clear, I will try it too.”
According to Yuan Luo, there are heavy metals in this salt mine, which is equivalent to taking chronic, poisonous, and medicine, and long-term use is incurable.
The two stood in the wind, looking at the endless snow and ice. The flying snow fell on the ground and quickly melted into water droplets and ice crystals, disappearing without leaving a trace.
Lian Yanqiu seemed to have a feeling: “The pure and beautiful things in the world are fleeting. It’s the evil salt that looks like a flying snow that will last for a long time, and people can’t stop it.”
It was snowing heavily and the cold was getting worse, so it was time to go back. The two walked too far, and the road under the snow was difficult to distinguish.
The two of them turned around, and on the way back, a violent wind gradually rose, blowing the two of them, one of them fluttering in a robe and one of the iron armor, and the snow and ice crystals in the sky became one with the picturesque scenery.
The lieutenant brought a dozen soldiers to meet him, and he couldn’t help but sighed: “The two adults are really like gods coming to the world, and they are going to soar.”
Lian Yanqiu laughed: “There is a sinner, so I don’t dare to think about it. There are real gods, and they may go away quickly, like this snow and ling, leaving a beautiful scenery.”
The lieutenant couldn’t understand, but Gu Yi felt that he had something to say, so he turned to look.
“The general will return to Beijing in one month.” After entering the camp, Yan Yanqiu looked at Gu Yi, “Thank you to bring me a word.”
After hearing the words he wanted to bring, Gu Yi was surprised.
“Mr. also wants to return to Beijing?”
“I want to go back and have a look.” Lian Yanqiu did not shy away from his selfishness, looked at the continuous flying snow outside the account, and smiled bitterly, “Probably always worried…”
What worried about, he didn’t continue to say, but aroused some worry that Gu Yi had hidden.
It turns out that he has the same worries.
Did not notice the ups and downs of Gu Yi’s mind, sitting on the corridor, Yuan Luo only felt a headache.
Someone really enjoys this game. She very much doubted that sooner or later, her old bottom would be cleansed by him. Thinking about this, it is better to call people back later! Then I thought, with this guy’s means, I really want to come back, there must be a way…
Alas, in fact, if you choose to leave, you don’t have to face all this.
Yuan Luo once again fell on the three option boxes floating in front, and couldn’t help asking: “If one day, I am gone, you will… Um.”
Before he finished speaking, he was stuck in his mouth.
After a long time, Gu Yi raised his head and let go of her. Looking at Yuan Luo, who was gasping for breathlessness, he whispered: “I won’t see this day.”
Yuan Luo’s bright eyes were filled with mist: “But in the future…”
Gu Yi kissed her again until she was messy. He hugged her, and whispered: “Born with Qiu, with the same hole when you die.” The tone was indifferent, but with irreversible determination.
Yuan Luo’s heart sank and she could only bury her head on his chest and abandon the topic.
After sitting down on the corridor for a while, snowflakes fell again, and the two simply went to the nearest Zichen Palace.
After proclaiming the emperor, Yuan Luo moved to the Qianqing Palace, where she rebuilt a study room. Occasionally, in her free time, she would come back for a night and relax for a while.
That night, the two of them stayed in the bedroom of Zichen Palace.
Gu Yi kissed her flushed cheeks, and breathed into her ears, as if the spring water melted the sense of winter.
Little don’t win the newlyweds, with a deep affection, so naturally you don’t need to elaborate.
After sleeping deeply into the middle of the night, Yuan Luo woke up inexplicably, and through the gaps in the curtains, you could see a few thick red candles in the hall burning halfway, probably in the middle of the night.
Gu Yi slept deeply, his handsome brows furrowed slightly, and her long eyelashes cast shadows like butterfly wings, with an inexplicable sadness. Shouldn’t I give him a name? Yuan Luo thought happily.
Just after a year of military career, he really lost a lot of weight, showing pity and cuteness, and his facial features are more clear and juicy, looking under the dim light, it is simply indescribable.
Yuan Luo looked at it carefully for a long time, and got up quietly without disturbing him.
Putting on the great cloak, walked to the front of the temple.
Standing at the entrance of the main hall, looking at the snow-paved courtyard through the glass window.
Yuan Luo still remembered that when she first woke up, she saw the pitiful appearance of Gu Yi being detained and beaten here.
At that time, I had even tried to kill the mind, thinking about cutting the grass and rooting people to death.
The result was blocked by the system, and the memory of what happened ten years ago is still vivid.
Thinking back to the cute look of the sleeping man on the bed, Yuan Luo didn’t know whether to cry or laugh.
In a flash, she came to this world for the tenth year!
How many decades are there in life?
If it were in the last life, ten years, what would she look like? Probably going to work step by step, becoming one of countless white-collar workers, and possibly buying a small house and paying off the mortgage on a monthly basis…
Thinking back to those in her previous life, she used to be most passionate about television and the Internet, things that she thought would not be able to live without, but now think about it, it is actually not that important.
And those relatives and friends of the previous life… At this moment, Yuan Luo is only fortunate that he is naturally shallow. I had no parents since I was a child, and I didn’t have much contact with relatives. The only rhubarb who had been with me for the longest time also left.
She gave a wry smile, finally raised her hand and clicked on that [No].
[The host chooses “No”, refuses to return to the original plane, and will stay in this plane. Please enter your selection again to make sure it is correct. 】
This system is quite nagging. Yuan Luo didn’t hesitate this time, but focused on that [No].
The system seemed to feel her determination.
[Receiving the host’s choice will disconnect the host from the original world. 】
Yuan Luo remembered that there was one thing she couldn’t let go of.
“Before I traveled, I hadn’t finished writing the book. Will the matter of wearing the book by myself affect the book? If not, what was the original ending of the book?”
Unexpectedly, the system actually answered.
[There is no such book. 】
Yuan Luo:? ? ? What do you mean.
[After receiving the request from the delegator, that is, the original owner, the system searches for soul matchers in the world, selects the host, and prepares for the host’s traversal. In the system, according to the memory of the delegator, the strategy guide has been generated since The form of the world novel is transmitted to the host to facilitate the host to prepare. 】
Yuan Luo:! ! ! In other words, the book she clicked on was simply forged by the system, pretending to be a novel at a certain point and sent to her mobile phone. No one has ever seen it except her.
It’s no wonder that when she saw the death book of the original master noble concubine, there was no more, because the original owner’s memory ended here.
Think about it carefully, it really is the same thing. Although the whole story is based on Gu Yi as the protagonist, it is the experience of the original owner from the exploration of Jin Linsi and systematically compiled scientific speculations. The book didn’t mention even Yanqiu and Cai Yunheng’s plans. That’s because the original owner didn’t know it.
Therefore, the so-called Chuanshu is not a book, but an independent world.
[The host understands correctly. All the worlds are parallel and equal time and space planes. 】
Yuan Luo felt a little funny and a little relieved. At least, my influence on this world is real, whether it is close as Gu Yi, or as far away as the common people in this world.
“Then if I choose to return, how will this world spawn in the future?”
The system was silent for a moment, seeming to deduct the future development process. After a while, he said: [The existence of the host has greatly promoted the scientific process of this era, but the host will leave after nine months, the impact ends, and the process will appear. Repeatedly, according to big data speculation, it will enter the Renaissance in about 400 years, and then enter the era of technology in about 200 years. 】
Yuan Luo felt relieved for a while, and suddenly realized something was wrong.
Last time, I didn’t say that if you choose to return, you would get sick and die in ten and a half months. How could it be nine months again?
[Because the host is already pregnant, according to the parallel world’s rules of traversal, pregnant women cannot traverse. If the host chooses to return, he will collapse and die after nine months. 】
Yuan Luo:! ! !
“Pregnant? When?” Yuan Luo stammered a little.
【According to monitoring, the fertilized egg implanted one hour, fifteen minutes and twenty-four seconds ago. 】
[Does the host have any other instructions? 】
[Thank you for your use, this system will sleep forever. 】
It took a long time for the didi sound that represented the disappearance of the system, and Yuan Luo slowly recovered.
She didn’t know whether to cry or laugh, recalling the news just now, she couldn’t help but raise her hand and press her abdomen.
Soon it felt ridiculous again, it was just a fertilized egg, so why worry about it!
After tangling outside for a long time, he finally returned to the hall.
I opened the curtain, but suddenly saw a little light floating.
Gu Yi was awake, lying on the side of the bed, staring at her in a daze, star-like eyes faintly floating with water, like a small animal abandoned in the cold wind and rain, making people devastated.
The moment she looked over, he immediately sat up and lowered his eyes. The long eyelashes concealed the intense emotions, but couldn’t control the shaking of the body.
“What’s the matter?” Yuan Luo leaned down in surprise and clasped his shoulders.
“I had a dream.” After a while, Gu Yi spoke slowly, with a hoarse tone, “I dreamed that you left.”
He held her hand tightly and buried his face in her palm, “Then I woke up. I couldn’t see you next to me. I was really scared. Do you think it’s a ridiculous dream.”
Having been married for so many years, in fact, there is always a fear deep in his heart, afraid that she will disappear, as if she suddenly came to him. Because of Lian Yanqiu, this fear has surfaced. And on this night, climbed to the top.
Half asleep and half awake, he felt her getting up and leaving.
After being married for many years, she also woke up in the middle of the night, but she never made him feel like this.
It seems that there is a kind of power in the world, constantly approaching. Let him have a hunch that she will step out of his world from now on.
He didn’t even know why he could control himself, did not get up from the bed and chase out of the hall.
Yuan Luo suddenly understood that he had been awake from beginning to end, although he could not see the invisible existence, nor could he hear her dialogue with the system in his heart, he still felt it.
He clearly felt that she had walked to a place he couldn’t touch, and might leave him, as if she suddenly appeared beside her.
He can’t do anything, but waits for her choice in the lonely darkness and silence.
This is the most terrible.
At the end, his tone was choked.
A drop of water fell on the palm of the hand, and it was hot.
Yuan Luo felt distressed and sour again, and finally she hugged him and whispered.
“I will not leave, I promise you.”
This is her promise and her choice to come to this world and let her meet this person in the best time.
She is grateful for such a life, such a meeting.
For the rest of my life, I only want to hold my hand and grow old with him.
In the autumn of the sixth year of Tianshou, in the hope of the whole country, the first child of the Empress was born.
The good news passed from the capital to the frontier, and immediately celebrated everywhere.
There are successors to the empire, and the Manchu dynasty is relieved. Originally, the empress and Yan Guogong had been married for many years, but no good news came, and the courtiers were very impatient. In particular, the two gathered little and left a lot, and Yan Guogong often led troops in battles abroad, leaving courtiers to be anxious.
Until last year’s New Year’s Day, the empress diagnosed her pregnant pulse, and now she finally gave birth to an heir. The most unreasonable minister in the DPRK can feel at ease from now on.
However, a pair of young people who have just been promoted to parents are still in a hurry.
Yuan Luo hugged her newborn son and patted him to sleep for a long time. Just after putting it down, the little thing left the warm embrace and started crying again.
The female officer smiled and said, “The little prince is very attached to his Majesty.”
Reluctant in every possible way, Yuan Luo could only hold the baby up with a straight face, and repeated it several times before she managed to put this annoying little thing to sleep.
Next to the crib, Gu Yi covered him with a quilt. She got up and saw Yuan Luo’s frowning brows, and smiled: “You said you don’t need a nanny to serve up close.”
Yuan Luo was full of regrets at this time. In order to maintain her figure, the concubine in the palace took medicine and weaned her baby soon after giving birth. There were several nurses waiting for her, so she didn’t have to worry about it.
She remembered that breastfeeding helped improve the baby’s immune system in the past life on popular science TV, so she was determined to feed her children for a period of time, with the help of the nurse. Only now I realized that it was such a troublesome thing. Not to mention hard work, this little thing is especially sticky to her.
Forget it, just get through these few months. Yuan Luo watched the little thing in her sleep spat out a milk bubble, leaned over and poked his fleshy little cheek with her hand.
“Now you owe you, and you will grow up soon in the future to share your worries for your parents.”
“What are you talking about?” Gu Yi asked with a smile.
“I’m talking about letting him grow up quickly, so I can take off the burden.” Yuan Luo got off the bed and stretched out her sore waist. “When the time comes, let’s take a boat out to the sea and see what you have said. Take me to see the beautiful scenery of falling snow in Yindan Lake.”
Yuan Luo planned with hope, and hoped that in 20 years, no, 18 years, uh, 16 years! I hope that this small goal will be achieved in 16 years. Throwing the throne and government to his son, he can live a happy two-person world with Gu Yi from then on.
This vast world, this long life, and many beautiful delicacies need her to appreciate and enjoy.
Gu Yi glanced sympathetically at the little guy on the bed, and he can imagine how much responsibility he will bear as the prince in the next 16 years.
But thinking of the bright future of traveling around the world, he was looking forward to it.
He hugged his wife and kissed on the forehead.
The golden autumn sun shines into the main hall through the glass windows, with a warm temperature.
Combine two big and one small three figures into one.
Gentle and complete.
