“Aunt, why were you so quiet when you came back last night? Why didn’t you didn’t inform Ruo’er? So Ruo’er can come to welcome you. You told everyone except Ruo’er.” Yu Xinruo pouted and said coquettishly to Empress Dowager with a small mouth. She heard Xiaoli say that the Empress Dowager came back in the middle of the night last night. When she returned, the emperor and all the concubines were notified except her.
“I want you to get a good night’s sleep. You must have already slept in the middle of the night. How could Auntie let you get up again? It would be bad if you catch a cold.” Empress Dowager Zhuang Ning smiled kindly. In front of her, there was none of the arrogance that Empress Dowager displayed to the others.
“Thank you, Aunt, you are so kind to Ruo’er, Ruo’er loves you so much.” Yu Xinruo felt so warm when she heard the words, she leaned over and kiss Empress Dowager’s face. When she was at home, she would kiss her mother whenever she was happy.
Empress Dowager Zhuang Ning was stunned for a moment at her action, looking at Yu Xinruo’s sweet smile, an inexplicable emotion suddenly filled her body.
Concubine Lan cursed inwardly, she’s really a flatterer, she doesn’t even blink when she tells lies.
“Aunt, what’s wrong with you, are you not happy that Ruo’er kissed you?” Seeing the Empress Dowager’s expression, Yu Xinruo couldn’t help but panic a little, could it be that the Empress Dowager doesn’t like people kissing her?
“No, Aunt is too excited. Before, no matter how nice I was to you, you never said such a thing to me. Aunt is really touched.” Empress Dowager Zhuang Ning took her into her arms and stroked her lovingly. Holding her head, she smiled happily, “Ruo’er, you are finally sensible, and your aunt is relieved.”
Nestled in Empress Dowager’s lap, Yu Xinruo’s heart suddenly filled with a strange feeling. Although she couldn’t tell why, she always felt that there must be something between Empress Dowager and the real Yu Xinruo. It’s a very delicate relationship, otherwise, Yu Xinruo is not the daughter of Empress Dowager, with an unpleasant personality and a dull person. Why does Empress Dowager dote her as much as she treats her own daughter? There must be some special reason for this.
“The Empress Dowager is really partial. When she met the queen, she even forgets her son.”
While thinking about it, Jun Yilie’s charming and yet pretend to be resentful voice suddenly came from the door. The morning assembly session must be over, and he had come over to greet Empress Dowager. Yu Xinruo quietly raised her eyes and glanced at him, with a sly smile in her eyes.
Jun Yilie, if you dare to bully me, you are dead.
“Greeting to the Emperor!”
Seeing Jun Yilie’s arrival, the concubines hurriedly bowed with their eyebrows lowered, and the joy in their eyes could not be concealed. This young and handsome Emperor is their husband and the sky above their heads. Even if they can only look at the holy face for a while, it is enough to make them feel relieved and happy.
“No ceremony.” Jun Yilie waved his hand casually, walked to Empress Dowager, bowed, and smiled, “I haven’t seen you in a month, the Empress Dowager seems to be ten years younger. It seems that I can’t let Empress Dowager leave the palace anymore. Otherwise, if my mother is another ten years younger, people would think that my mother is actually my older sister.”
“Naugthy mouth, stupid boy.” Empress Dowager smiled and scolded, pulled him over and sat down together, held his hand and Yu Xinruo’s hand, and smiled lovingly, “You and Ruo’er are my favorites children. If the two of you can love each other and support each other, I will be satisfied even if I close my eyes immediately.”
Jun Yilie and Yu Xinruo exclaimed at the same time, Jun Yilie glanced at Yu Xinruo, gently pulled out his hand, and said with an unpleasant expression: “Mother, why do you say such unlucky words! Lie’er hopes that you will always be young and live a hundred years old!”
Yu Xinruo held the Empress Dowager’s hand and smiled: “Cousin is right, Aunt, don’t say such things again, or Ruo’er will die of sadness.” She looked at Jun Yilie and smiled, “What’s more, I have made up with cousin, you don’t have to worry about it.”
