“What?” When Feng Yu heard this, a look of fear appeared in his eyes.
He was a smart person. Even if he didn’t hear the full story, just based on this opening, he could guess the ending.
“Emperor, please listen to this one.” The empress dowager said with a sigh, “The previous emperor very much liked that woman and stayed in the south for a year. He only left when the child was born.”
“This one knows that the emperor will ask why the previous emperor didn’t bring her back at that time?” The empress dowager seemed to be asking and answering herself, “Because if that woman came back with the previous emperor, it would have been hard for her to survive. After all, there were few children born to the previous emperor.”
“The empress dowager means that Luo……Luo Qing Chen is the previous emperor’s daughter?” Feng Yu’s face was already ashen at this point. Although he was very unwilling to face this result, he had no choice but to face it.”
“Properly speaking, the previous emperor never had a daughter. After you took the throne, Qing Chen should be the eldest princess.” The empress dowager looked at Feng Yu and said, “The true eldest princess.”
Luo Qing Chen was different from Fang Yin. She was from the main bloodline, Fang Yin was just a relative.
She was the true eldest princess while Fang Yin was at most half a princess.
That was why the empress dowager didn’t summon Fang Yin again after having her leave last night.
This matter was too important to play around with.
“Royal mother, are you certain?” Feng Yu looked at Luo Qing Chen and said with a cold laugh, “This girl is full of tricks, don’t let her fool you.”
“This one is certain.” The empress dowager said with a sigh, “The previous emperor not only told this one that he left behind a jade pendant, but that this baby girl had a red birthmark like a flower on her back. This was something that only this one and the previous emperor knew and this one has already seen Qing Chen’s birthmark last night.”
Luo Qing Chen was surprised when she heard this.
She did have some doubts too. Logically speaking, she and Concubine Rou had only come with a single jade pendant. Even if the empress dowager was shocked, she should have rationally tried to confirm her identity after calming down.
But Maid Wang just asked the maids to wash her up and they didn’t ask or do anything else.
It seemed like the empress dowager already knew about the birthmark when she washed up last night, already confirming that she was the daughter of the previous emperor.
She suddenly felt that the empress dowager was a powerful person. She didn’t seem as kind and indifferent as she did on the surface, rather her thoughts were deeper and her methods were more powerful than anyone.
The more she thought about it, the more it seemed right. After all, how could a person who reached this position not be powerful?
Silence, silence, silence, only silence.
The empress dowager didn’t speak because she was waiting for Feng Yu to speak. She already had the upper hand, so there was nothing that she needed to say.
Feng Yu was so smart. Since he understood everything, he naturally understood what to do.
However, Feng Yu didn’t speak because it was like there was a stone in his heart and he didn’t know what to say.
Like this, Luo Qing Chen had become his half sister and they would never be together.
When frustration reached a certain point, people would become crazy.
Especially for an emperor like him. The things that he wanted, he wouldn’t let others have even if he had to destroy them.
“This one understands what royal mother means.” Feng Yu looked at Luo Qing Chen with a cold look, “Since Qing Chen is the previous emperor’s daughter, then naturally she should be the eldest princess.”
