“In my opinion! It must be that someone doesn’t like Miss Xiao, and she wants to let her sister be the crown princess. It’s a pity… if it’s an unprocessed jade, it will still be found no matter where it is. However, no one will want it if it’s a turbid jade. Sister Ji, don’t you think I’m right?”
The empress hid a dagger behind a smile. Since Concubine Ji wanted Xiao Xi to die so much, she would not let Concubine Ji get what she wished. The empress would insist on saving Xiao Xi to bring trouble Concubine Ji.
“Empress, what do you mean by this? Are you saying that my sister is a turbid jade?”
“Okay, stop arguing. The civil and military officials are watching. One of you is the empress and the other is a concubine, how indecent is that?”
The emperor’s face became cold, and he had a headache. These two women are the highest in my heart among the concubines of the harem. But when these two women meet, it is like they had forged an old feud in their previous life, they will always fight.
The empress and Concubine Ji both stopped, looking at each other annoyingly.
The little one sat on the large and magnificent dragon chair and listened to the words of the emperor, empress and Concubine Ji. There was a chillness in its dark eyes. The emperor is really too much/ Concubine Ji just said a few words, and he wanted to put me into the pig cage and drown me?
However, it was not that she wanted to marry Nan Gongyin. If this emperor didn’t agree on the canonization of the crown princess, how could Nan Gongyin marry her?
The little fox looked at Xiao Xi who walked over. The familiar face with a light makeup, and she looked exceptionally pretty. Wearing the big red wedding robe, she looked a bit coquettish. Such a woman, even if she was an idiot, any man would keep her by his side.
Xiao Xi stopped in front of the emperor. As soon as the nervous voice came out, the astounding temperament disappeared completely.
The emperor glanced at Xiao Xi displeasedly. Such an unruly girl with a stupid face, she can’t even salute?
“Miss Xiao, why don’t you bow to the emperor?” The old eunuch reminded anxiously in a low voice.
“B… bow?” Xiao Xi stuttered. Thinking of Nan Gongyin’s words, she knelt down to the emperor, “Gree… tings… to the… emperor… empress.”
As soon as Xiao Xi said this, a quiet laughter came from the surroundings. The shoulders of the civil and military officials were shaking.
It was not that they wanted to laugh, they really couldn’t control it.
Is this crown princess from the deep jungle!? She can’t even bow and greet?
Concubine Ji sneered at Xiao Xi who was kneeling on the ground. I really look highly on Xiao Xi. With such a stupid face, is she worthy of fighting for the crown prince with Xue’er?
The emperor’s face was pale. The fingers placed on the armrest of the dragon’s head were trembling slightly. This stupid girl is also worthy of being the crown princess of Yin’er? Wouldn’t it be laughed at by the world?
Nan Gongyin frowned. His dark eyes showed a worried look. He wanted to step forward, but according to the rules of the Southern Lin Dynasty, when the crown princess was being canonized, the crown prince couldn’t accompany her by the side. Xiao Xi had to face it alone.
Xi’er, don’t be afraid, it’s just the last step. When this is done, you will be my crown princess.
Nan Gongyin didn’t notice that there was a layer of sweat on his palm.
“What a beautiful child.” The empress smiled and raised Xiao Xi on the ground. She gently patted Xiao Xi’s back. Her gentle eyes were comforting her.
Xiao Xi looked at the gentle smile on the empress’ face. At that moment, she thought of Nan Gongyin, and her nervous heart gradually relaxed.
“Emperor, it’s time to give holy water.”
Empress saw Concubine Ji looked ugly, and she was delighted in her heart. As long as I’m still the empress of the Southern Lin Dynasty, I won’t let Concubine Ji, a lowly bitch, play tricks in front of me. This harem is my harem. Who do you think you are? You can only win the emperor’s favor by your bewitching means.
Concubine Ji will get old one day. By the time, I want to see how this bitch bewitches the emperor?
The emperor had a gloomy face. He didn’t want to give Xiao Xi holy water. Once he gave holy water, it was equivalent to canonize her as the crown princess.
Moreover, after Xiao Xi drank the holy water, if she had sex with Nan Gongyin tonight, she would be pregnant with a royal heir and give birth to his first son.
When the emperor thought of such a stupid person like Xiao Xi giving birth to a child of the royal family, he felt pain in his heart.
Hearing this, Concubine Ji looked at Ji Yunxue. Her eyes were flashing with a ruthless cold light.
Holding a bowl of holy water in both hands, Ji Yunxue bowed her head to Xiao Xi. Hearing the emperor’s “give the holy water”, Ji Yunxue’s heart suddenly became anxious. Her long eyelashes trembled. Her eyes looked guilty and uneasy.
Fortunately, she kept her head down, so no one noticed her abnormality.
It was true that no one saw Ji Yunxue’s abnormality, but the little fox sitting on the dragon chair saw Ji Yunxue’s expression in its. It was a guilty expression.
The little fox was suddenly shocked. Is there something wrong with the holy water given by the emperor?
The little fox watched Xiao Xi pick up the holy water. As she was about to drink it, it pounced toward Xiao Xi, “Don’t drink it.”
The little fox’s voice was loud, but no one could hear it. Its paws touched the jade bowl with holy water and tried to knock it over. However, it failed. Its paws went through the jade bowl, and its fluffy body went through Xiao Xi’s face, falling heavily on the ground.
It didn’t feel any pain. It climbed up from the ground very quickly. When it saw that Xiao Xi had already brought the holy water to her mouth, it was shocked. It closed its eyes, trying to stop Xiao Xi by focusing its mind. However, time was running out. It was too… late to use its psychic power now.
It couldn’t focus its mind. God seemed to be joking with it. Troubles came one after another…
The jade bowl in Xiao Xi’s hand fell to the ground, and the holy water splashed out.
The little fox opened its eyes and saw the holy water on the ground. It was ecstatic. It’s really unexpected! My psychic has already reached such a level! With just two seconds, I knocked over the holy water in Xiao Xi’s hand.
When little fox was smug, it heard the surprised sound of the civil and military officials. Someone seemed to shout “regent”.
Regent? Is it Feng Lingran?
The little fox turned its head instinctively, and a purple figure appeared in its eyes. If it weren’t for the dark eyes that could turn summer into winter, the little fox almost thought that the person was Zi Yi instead of Feng Lingran.
Feng Lingran stared at the girl in the phoenix crown with a cold face. If his eyes could kill someone, Xiao Xi’s back might have had a few more blood holes.
It was Feng Lingran who broke the holy water in Xiao Xi’s hand?
The little fox’s expression was a bit weird. I thought it was my psychic!
“Regent, I’m very honored that you can come to the canonization of the crown princess, please take a seat here.”
Nan Gongyin stepped forward and blocked Feng Lingran, staring directly at him with cold moon-like dark eyes. No one was willing to back out now. A bloody massacre was about to happen.
So what if he is the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty? Xiao Xi has already received the holy water, then she is my crown princess. I will never let Feng Lingran snatch Xiao Xi away.
“I’m not here to participate in your crown princess canonization.” Feng Lingran’s thin lips spoke a few cold words, then he continued, “I’m here to take my regent princess home.”
The little fox’s heart trembled fiercely. It revealed a cute foxy smile. It looked at Feng Lingran with infatuation. He is here to bring me home.
Nan Gongyin frowned and felt a little unhappy, “Then I’m sorry, there is no regent princess here.”
“Really?” Feng Lingran’s thin lips curled up with a sneer.
Concubine Ji saw Feng Lingran coming, and she smiled in her heart. She lowered her voice and said to the emperor, “Look, the emperor, Feng Lingran doesn’t look good on his face! He even broke the holy water in Xiao Xi’s hands. He is obviously here to snatch the bride.”
Concubine Ji saw that the emperor’s face became more and more unsightly, and she continued to add fuel to the fire, “The regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty holds the military power. If something happens to him in the Southern Lin Dynasty Palace, I’m afraid it will cause a war between the Southern Lin Dynasty and the Eastern Jin Dynasty. Emperor, I know that I should intervene as a concubine, but this is related to emperor. I can’t help myself… Emperor, even if you want to punish me, I will still say this. It’s not appropriate to offend the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty for a stupid girl. Why not we just return this stupid girl to Feng Lingran!”
Empress glared at Concubine Ji and whispered angrily, “You enchantress, you said that you shouldn’t interfere in politics, but you still give your damn ideas in front of the emperor? If the emperor hand Xiao Xi to Feng Lingran, doesn’t that mean our Southern Lin Dynasty is afraid of the Eastern Jin Dynasty? Emperor, please don’t listen to what Concubine Ji said. She just wants to marry her sister Ji Yunxue to the crown prince as a concubine. All the civil and military officials witnessed Xiao Xi being canonized today, you can’t let Feng Lingran take Xiao Xi away. The Southern Lin Dynasty cannot afford to lose this face.”
The emperor pondered for a moment, and he solemnly said, “The empress is right. Now that Xiao Xi is canonized as the crown princess, if Feng Lingran brings her away, wouldn’t the world laugh at me for being afraid of the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty?”
Concubine Ji glanced at the empress with hatred. She was furious in her mind. Since Feng Lingran dares to snatch the bride in the Southern Lin Dynasty’s palace, he must have prepared for it. Do you think as the empress, you can stop Feng Lingran from bringing Xiao Xi away?
Isn’t it just a war between the two countries!?
