The empress dowager thought about it and said, “The late emperor told this one that your mother gave birth to a daughter, but because of the urgency, he couldn’t keep your mother by his side and could only leave behind this personal royal family jade pendant. When he returned to the palace and looked for your mother, she was already gone.”
“So it was like this……” Luo Qing Chen knitted her brows and replied, “Then the queen’s relative killing my adoptive parent wasn’t that simple.”
“The previous emperor asked this one to find your mother and you before he died. This one was still a concubine back then and he hadn’t become the emperor yet. He most likely met your mother when he went south that year, the previous emperor was only around sixteen or seventeen at the time.” The empress dowager recalled all of this and she couldn’t help revealing a faint smile.
Luo Qing Chen looked down without saying anything.
Concubine Rou who had been silent on the side finally spoke, “Empress dowager, other than coming to verify Qing Chen’s identity, there’s still the matter in the Supreme Hall today. This concubine’s little brother is still in prison……Qing Chen is about to enter the Brocaded Zither Palace.”
“Nonsense.” The empress dowager gave a sigh, “Even if Qing Chen wasn’t born from me, she has the blood of the royal family. The emperor’s wish will not be fulfilled in this lifetime.”
“Be assured, this one will make a decision.” The empress dowager said, “Qing Chen will stay in the Peaceful Kind Palace tonight and not go to the Brocaded Zither Palace. As for Nan Mo……This one will go in person to the prison tomorrow to get him out.”
Concubine Rou and Luo Qing Chen looked at each other before saying at the same time, “Thank you, empress dowager.”
The next morning, the Supreme Hall.
Eunuch Du told Feng Yu as soon as he woke up about Concubine Rou and Luo Qing Chen’s trip to the Peaceful Kind Palace. As well as the empress dowager going to the prison early this morning to get Song Nan Mo.
No one knew what Concubine Rou and Luo Qing Chen talked about with the empress dowager. They just knew that the empress dowager had suddenly changed heart and stood on their side, so no one could stop them.
“Peng!” A golden basin filled with water slammed on the ground as Feng Yu angrily said, “Why did you only tell this one now! Do you not want your dog life anymore?”
Du San Bao was so scared that he kneeled on the ground, “Emperor, please calm down, please calm down. This servant didn’t dare disturb the emperor’s rest and could only wait outside the entire time. Not to mention……this servant doesn’t dare go against the orders of the empress dowager……”
“Why?” Feng Yu knitted his brows and muttered, “Why would the empress dowager suddenly side with them?”
Since he had taken the throne, whether it was in the court or the harem, the empress dowager had never done anything.
She was a buddhist who didn’t interfere with worldly matters, never using her power as the empress dowager.
This was most likely the first time since becoming the empress dowager that she used her power and she did something this unbelievable.
“This one is going to the Peaceful Kind Palace.” Feng Yu looked up with a cold look in his eyes.
Du San Bao was surprised before immediately saying, “The emperor isn’t holding court today?”
“Since royal mother has set a precedent, then this one will also set a precedent for her.” He narrowed his eyes and said, “Immediately ask the royal kitchen to prepare some desserts that royal mother likes to eat, this one will bring them over.”
“Yes……Emperor.” After following the emperor for so many years, Du San Bao naturally knew that the emperor was truly angered this time.
But since the empress dowager who lived in the Peaceful Kind Palace was his mother and he was a filial son, he naturally couldn’t do anything overboard. He could only use this method to deal with his mother.
