The best way to defeat the enemy was to let Luo Qing Chen know just ‘what kind of person’ Song Nan Mo was.
He was the minister of industry and his future was endless. If he was accused of having an affair with a palace maid at this time, his future would be ruined.
So as long as he was a bit smart, he wouldn’t admit their relationship.
“No.” Song Nan Mo shook his head as a bit of gentleness appeared in his eyes, “It’s me who admires her and it has nothing to do with her.”
Both Luo Qing Chen and Feng Yu’s eyes fell onto Song Nan Mo at the same time as they both revealed looks of shock.
Luo Qing Chen was shocked and moved, but Feng Yu was angered.
“Song Nan Mo!” Feng Yu angrily looked at him and clenched his fists, “This one wants you to think carefully about what you’re saying.”
Although Song Nan Mo’s brows were knit, his eyes were very calm. He just cupped his hands and lowered his head as he said, “This subordinate has thought it clearly. Even if it’s asking for marriage, it should be this subordinate asking for an engagement from the emperor and not Qing Chen.”
“Good, good……Good……” Feng Yu said this three times in a row as he narrowed his sharp eyes to look at them, “Since you want to violate the palace rules so much, this one will go along with you. Someone……”
“The empress dowager is here.”
Luo Qing Chen thought that it would be hard for her and Song Nan Mo to leave the Supreme Hall today. But without knowing why, although she only had 80% affection from Song Nan Mo, everything that he said and everything that he did filled her with a warm feeling.
Not seeking glory and wealth, but looking for happiness and sharing hardships.
He was so smart and was Feng Yu’s close companion, so he naturally knew what Feng Yu was thinking.
As a minister, he should retreat. But he knew that he would regret it if he did retreat now.
So even if he lost his title as a minister, he definitely wouldn’t let her go.
“He, he.” Feng Yu gave a cold snort and said, “The Supreme Hall truly is lively tonight.”
Along with the empress dowager, there was also the empress dowager’s favourite niece Fang Yin who came into the Supreme Hall with her.
When Fang Yin came in, she shook her head when she saw Song Nan Mo. It was as if she was saying that no matter what she said, he shouldn’t reject her.
Song Nan Mo looked away and placed his eyes firmly on Luo Qing Chen.
Those firm eyes were telling her, don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid.
“Fang Yin greets the emperor.” Fang Yin kneeled while revealing a sweet smile, looking quite cute.
“No need to be polite.” Feng Yu quickly stood up and turned to the empress dowager, “Royal mother, it’s already this late and it’s cold outside, why have you come to the Supreme Hall? If you need something, just send a message and your son will come right away.”
Feng Yu might like the new and hate the old when it came to love, but he always held family ties close to his heart.
Since the day that he took the throne, the empress dowager had always lived a prosperous life. Feng Yu was a true filial son and even if he was already the emperor, he was always very respectful to his mother and never overstepped.
“Ai.” The empress dowager gave a sigh before sitting down in the high position, “This emperor should know that this one dotes on Yin’er and she’s been crying all the time at my place. This one can’t do anything, so this one came to ask the emperor to make up his mind.”
“Just what is royal mother worried about?” Feng Yu respectfully said, “You can tell this one.”
“It’s related to Yin’er’s marriage.” The empress dowager looked at Fang Yin with a doting look, “Yin’er has followed me for many years and now that she is grown up, she has someone that she likes. This one came to ask the emperor for an engagement.”
