“I have no evidence.” Song Nan Mo’s expression changed slightly, “But does Qing Chen dare say that you have no other reason for approaching Concubine Rou.”
“Of course there is.” Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips and said, “Life in the clothes washing department naturally isn’t as good as the Righteous Declaration Palace. Although I am only a maid, I will always find a better path for myself.”
“Are you always this……sincere when you speak?” Song Nan Mo lowered his head, as if he was a bit embarrassed.
“Sir Song, the word sincere isn’t used well here.” Luo Qing Chen thought about it and said, “You should have said straightforward.”
“I……” Song Nan Mo pursed his lips, “How did miss Qing Chen let big sister keep you by her side? Can you tell me?”
“Sir Song is saying this like I would harm Concubine Rou.” Luo Qing Chen pouted her lips, “A gentleman doesn’t act like a villain.”
“I……I didn’t mean this.” Song Nan Mo’s face turned red when he heard this.
Luo Qing Chen felt that his shy appearance was very cute, so she said with a chuckle, “I can tell you, but I have a condition.”
Such a good chance, if she didn’t flirt a bit now, when would she?
Luo Qing Chen’s eyes fell onto the jade pendant at his waist and took it off him with one smooth move.
Such a fine piece of jade, white and flawless. There was a “Mo” letter engraved in the center, which particularly suited Song Nan Mo.
“Miss Qing Chen.” Song Nan Mo reacted quickly as he reached out right away to take the jade pendant back.
It was a pity that Luo Qing Chen was a step faster. Holding the jade pendant and looking at it carefully, she said, “Why is sir Song so anxious? Could it be that it’s a present for a loved one?”
“No.” He looked away as a sparkle appeared in those deep eyes. He softly said, “I don’t……don’t have a lover.”
It was unknown why. This high ranking minister of the ministry of industry, the man that all of the maids in the palace admired.
At that moment, she felt that he was acting a bit shy in front of her.
“Let’s take this jade pendant as the condition then.” Luo Qing Chen waved it and said, “I don’t think that will let sir Song suffer.”
“Is Sir Song very troubled?”
“If miss Qing Chen likes this jade pendant, how about I get another one for you? I’ll find some even better pieces of jade for you tomorrow to choose from.” When Song Nan Mo said these words, his face turned even more red.
Luo Qing Chen didn’t understand what he was being so shy about, but she gave a decisive nod, “Alright! Then I’ll keep this safe for you before then, otherwise, what if you go back on your word?”
“......” Song Nan Mo blinked twice before saying, “Alright, then I’ll leave it with miss Qing Chen temporarily. So can you tell me what method you used to make my big sister keep you at the Righteous Declaration Palace?”
“Before I give the answer, Sir Song should at least believe in me.” Luo Qing Chen raised a brow and said, “Otherwise, it would be said in vain.”
Song Nan Mo’s eyes became serious as he looked at her, “Since I personally came to ask you, naturally I would believe you.”
Actually, he felt that it was very strange. He instantly saw through this maid’s story in the imperial gardens last night.
But when the emperor appeared, he couldn’t help wanting to help her for some strange reason.
This feeling was very strange and even he was scared by it……
In the palace over the years, he had seen many beautiful concubines and even maids, but he had never felt the feeling between men and women before.
But now……He couldn’t stop his face from blushing and his heart from beating fast.
