“Wait.” When she was about to put the jade pendant away, Concubine Rou narrowed her eyes, “Let me see your jade pendant.”
Luo Qing Chen was surprised. One of the tasks was to help the previous host find her identity and take revenge for her adoptive parent.
Now that there were so many things happening, she didn’t have time for this side mission.
But Concubine Rou seemed like she recognized this jade pendant.
Luo Qing Chen handed the jade pendant to Concubine Rou and asked, “Has the concubine seen this jade pendant before?”
Concubine Rou carefully looked at the jade pendant before her fingers trembled, “Where did this jade pendant come from?”
“It was given to me by my mother.” Luo Qing Chen replied without hiding anything, “She said that with this jade pendant, Qing Chen could find her father.”
“What?” Concubine Rou revealed a shocked look, “Did your mother really tell you this?”
“Yes.” Luo Qing Chen’s eyes trembled as she said, “It seems like the concubine knows who this jade pendant belongs to.”
“This jade pendant is a royal family possession.” Concubine Rou knitted her brows and said, “It belonged to the late emperor……”
“The late emperor?” Luo Qing Chen was surprised as her mind quickly started piecing together the possibilities of her identity.
“Yes.” Concubine Rou said with a nod, “It was the late emperor’s property. You and Nan Mo……might have a chance to survive.”
Luo Qing Chen’s eyes trembled. She naturally could see what the meaning of these words were from Concubine Rou’s eyes.
“Qing Chen……Concubine……What are you talking about?” Su Su scratched her head with a confused look on her face.
Concubine Rou looked at Su Su and said, “Tell the guards that this one is going to the Peaceful Kind Palace.”
“Concubine, it’s this late and the empress dowager has just returned from the Supreme Hall.” Luo Qing Chen took a deep breath and said, “We should wait until tomorrow.”
“No……” Concubine Rou shook her head, “We can’t wait……If you go into the Brocaded Zither Palace, although you haven’t received a title, the people in the palace will know what it means. Whether you have attended his bed or not, you are already the emperor’s concubine.”
“This one wants to fight for this one’s pitiful brother.” Concubine Rou looked up and said, “This one hopes that we can win this time.”
Peaceful Kind Palace.
The empress dowager couldn’t sleep because of the matters in the Supreme Hall. Fang Yin was waiting on her and her face didn’t look too good.
“Yin’er, don’t be too sad.” The empress dowager looked at her and said, “There are many talented people in court, Song Nan Mo is just one of them.”
“But Yin’er likes him.” Fang Yin pouted her lips and said, “Anyway, it’s impossible between that maid and Sir Song, so Yin’er should have a chance.”
“You, ah, you, why are you so stubborn?” The empress dowager looked at her and said, “Stubborn women won’t achieve happiness.”
“Reporting to the empress dowager, Concubine Rou is asking to see you.” An old maid came in and said, “This servant wanted to refuse, but because of the matter in the Supreme Hall, this servant knew that the empress dowager’s heart was still worried. Concubine Rou……has brought that little maid as well.”
The empress dowager heard this and said with a displeased look, “So what if she brought her here? Can’t you see that our Yin’er is embarrassed enough?”
“This servant knows, but……”
“But Concubine Rou said that there was something important to report to the empress dowager. It’s related to the late emperor.”
The empress dowager knitted her brows as a trace of doubt appeared in her eyes, “Alright, let her come in. But you must remind her that if this matter isn’t a big deal, this one will hold her accountable.”
