“How could the empress not know about this?” Luo Qing Chen cleared her throat before lowering the tone of her voice, “Alum is a substance that fills the air very quickly when burned with red sandalwood. The eighth prince’s condition wouldn’t improve eating the nourishing sophora flavescens and the inflaming dried durians. Having difficulty breathing and not having enough air, it’s easy to cause heart failure.”
“Heart failure?” Feng Yu seemed like he was hearing this for the first time. His eyes swept over her, feeling that she was a bit familiar.
Luo Qing Chen shook her head, “It means suffocation.”
People with high fevers were different from normal people. Normal people would only feel stuffy in environments with bad air, but someone with a high fever in an environment with bad air, once breathing became hard for them, it was easy for them to feel pressure in their heart.
Add in the fact that the eighth prince was still young, it was easy for him to die.
“Someone, take this maid away and interrogate her.” Feng Yu looked at the empress and said, “If there’s any plot to kill this one’s prince, we’ll know afterwards.”
“This wife is upright, I ask the emperor for your judgement.” The empress had a calm look on her face, not showing a trace of worry.
She had already been exposed when she asked about the blanket.
The empress being able to reach this stage was definitely because of her ability. It was not something that could be easily defeated without real evidence.
“Thank you emperor for making the decision for this wife.”
“Concubine Rou, don’t worry, this one will make a decision for you.”
It had to be said, Feng Yu looked very majestic when he put on the dragon robe. His handsomeness was different from Song Nan Mo’s, it was the type that was dominating and possessive.
“The emperor cares so much for this wife. If Feng Zhi was still alive, he definitely……”
“Don’t talk about this. We can still have a child, just take care of your body.” Feng Yu gently stroked her hand and said, “Send Concubine Rou back to the Righteous Declaration Palace.”
As soon as his voice fell, his eyes fell onto Luo Qing Chen.
His eyes were narrowed, as if he was investigating something and wanted to say something, but he couldn’t say it in the end.
Luo Qing Chen quickly said with a bow, “Yes.”
Righteous Declaration Palace.
Su Su said in a very emotional voice, “So it turned out that Xiang Cao was that kind of person……I thought that she just had a bad temper, I never thought……”
“We can’t blame her entirely since the empress caught her parents, she couldn’t do anything……” Concubine Rou shook her head, “It was this one who didn’t understand here.”
“The concubine has already done a lot, don’t blame yourself.” Luo Qing Chen poured some tea for her, “It’s a pity that we can’t do anything to the empress this time.”
“Even like this?” Su Su asked in a doubtful voice, “Didn’t Xiang Cao already confess?”
“It’s one thing for Xiang Cao to confess, she’s from the Righteous Declaration Palace. It can’t be said that the concubine didn’t use her to frame the empress.” Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips and said, “Her hands are clean and I can’t find anything on her no matter how I investigate.”
Su Su was surprised to hear this, “Then……wasn’t what we did all in vain?”
“That isn’t true. Don’t look at how calm the empress seemed on the surface, the emperor should be doubtful towards her now.” Luo Qing Chen’s expression changed slightly as she said, “We can’t kill the tiger, but we can peel her skin.”
“Did her skin really get peeled?” Concubine Rou’s eyes were red as she bit her lips, “She killed my Feng Zhi. I really am unwilling if she doesn’t die.”
“The emperor looked at her with eyes filled with suspicion today.” Luo Qing Chen replied, “She thought that the emperor wouldn’t believe the concubine, but the emperor can see things more clearly than anyone.”
