Song Nan Mo was surprised before his expression changed. After a few seconds, he said, “I forgot……”
Luo Qing Chen said in an understanding voice after hearing this, “Then I’ll keep Sir Song’s jade pendant with me for now. When sir brings the jade pendants for me to choose from, I’ll return it.”
After a while, he looked away a bit and softly said, “Alright.”
Righteous Declaration Palace.
As soon as Luo Qing Chen came in, Xiang Cao stopped her. She looked at her with a domineering look and said, “You’re being lazy right after entering the Righteous Declaration Palace, do you think this place is a charity!”
Luo Qing Chen coldly narrowed her eyes to look at her, “I was about to report to Concubine Rou and you blocked me. Do you think that you are the master of this Righteous Declaration Palace?”
“You……” Xiang Cao couldn’t fight back. Her face turned red and she pointed at Luo Qing Chen’s face as she said, “Don’t slander people, I never said any of that.”
“I don’t know if you’ve said it or not.” Luo Qing Chen said with a cold smile, “But your ability to turn right to wrong really is unparalleled.”
“Is Qing Chen back?” As soon as Concubine Rou called her name, Xiang Cao’s expression became even worse.
The maid Su Su quickly came out and said, “Qing Chen, the concubine wants to see you.”
“Understood.” Luo Qing Chen raised her right hand and used a bit of force to push the hand that Xiang Cao was holding her with, “Move aside.”
Xiang Cao glared at her before stomping her foot, “Just you wait, I will tell the concubine about your laziness.”
She wanted to follow Luo Qing Chen in to see Concubine Rou when she said this, but Su Su actually stopped her.
“Su Su, what are you doing? Do you even want to step over me?”
“No……” Su Su timidly took a step back before hesitantly saying, “The concubine said that Qing Chen should go in alone.”
Xiang Cao was shocked as she said in disbelief, “What?”
In the Righteous Declaration Palace, she was Concubine Rou’s favourite. No matter how bad her temper was, Concubine Rou had never punished her.
It was because of this that she felt very relaxed doing certain things.
“Big sister Xiang Cao……This is the concubine’s orders.” Su Su said in a low voice, “This servant doesn’t dare go against them……”
“Ze, ze, ze.” Luo Qing Chen looked at Xiang Cao who had a face filled with hate and revealed a faint cold smile.
She didn’t say another word, but in the battle of gazes, she had already won.
The inner room.
Luo Qing Chen said with a bow, “This servant greets Concubine Rou.”
“No need.” Concubine Rou shook her head and said, “Just act like them.”
Concubine Rou gave a slight nod before looking into her eyes to ask, “You went to the doctor’s yard with Nan Mo this morning, right?”
“Yes, concubine.” Luo Qing Chen’s expression changed slightly as she said, “There has been some progress with the investigation that the concubine has asked for.”
“That’s good.” Concubine Rou slightly knitted her brows, “You and Nan Mo……”
“Although this servant is already a maid of the Righteous Declaration Palace, naturally it isn’t easy for this servant to access the doctor yard’s records.” Luo Qing Chen said in a low voice, “Besides, beating the grass will scare the snakes.”
“You mean that Feng Zhi was really……killed……by someone……” Concubine Rou’s eyes turned red when she heard this.
Why was she so weak? She couldn’t protect her child and even let him be killed by someone in her own palace……
“It should be like this.” Luo Qing Chen honestly said, “But the investigation isn’t complete yet and there’s no evidence pointing to a single person.”
