Thus with his thick face, Ji Wu Jiu followed Ye Zhen Zhen back to Kun Ning Palace.

He is not good at comfort woman, most of the time when he really needs to, he would just use candied words, now towards the angry Ye Zhen Zhen, he really don’t know what he should do. To explain, he has done it already, and normally he is the less talkative type, so he does not feel like repeating the same words.

The atmosphere was really awkward.

Ye Zhen Zhen was very tired and have climbed on to her bed and slept. Ji Wu Jiu was by her side, in deep thoughts.

Today, that case, there should be something more to it. Firstly, why would the empress dowager able to accurately appear on time to Ying Hua Hall? Second, who was the one who used his jade to falsify his orders and got Lu Li to appear there?

The first was easier to clear, in this scheme surely the empress dowager is involved. Then was it her that asked someone to steal the jade to pass the fake order? It doesn’t seem possible…. As long as Lu Li take out the jade, then he can explain the misunderstanding immediately, it doesn’t seem like it was used to trap someone.

Also, not to mention when the empress dowager ask people to search Lu Li, it was almost as if, she is guaranteed to get something..

Gathering all this thoughts, Ji Wu Jiu came up with something : Most probably the empress dowager did order someone to falsify the order, just that not the emperor’s order but the empress’s, and use something that belonged to Ye Zhen Zhen. But what he couldn’t have thought is that Lu Li found out the plan, and changed Ye Zhen Zhen’s item with his jade, and change the whole situation around.

Here we should acknowledge Ji Wu Jiu’s rational and logic thinking powers, if he is not an emperor, he would definitely be suitable to take on a job as a police detective, or something. He should be someone as well.

Therefore, the jade could have been stolen by Lu Li, or someone from Gan Qing Palace could have stolen it and passed it to Lu Li. No matter which was it, the people at Gan Qing Palace should be properly re-trained.

The moment he thought of how Lu Li took the jade, and told such a big lie, Ji Wu Jiu’s first reaction was actually not angry, but felt lucky. The anger in his heart also dissipated quite a lot, and decided to act stupid this time round, and not punish Lu Li. Then after, when he thought of how the empress dowager wants to use the method of placing a green hat on to her own son to scheme her daughter in law, he got angered and slammed the table.

Although he initially decided to be a filial son, but it doesn’t mean he will allow himself to be controlled by the empress dowager.

The person beyond the mosquito net seems to be disturbed by his action, and made some noise indicating that she is uncomfortable.

Ji Wu Jiu then quietly removed his outer clothes and climbed on to the bed as well, squirming into the blanket, and held Ye Zhen Zhen tightly in his arms.

As though as ease was achieve suddenly, he took a deep breath. Placing his chin lightly on her collar bone, he quietly whispered to her ears “did you know, I was really afraid that it was real”

What replied him was only the other person’s even breathing.

“Luckily it was not” He added


The next day, afternoon, Ye Zhen Zhen heard that near the plum blossom garden, a eunuch hanged himself to death, the empress dowager asked the Lieutenant Lu to check whether it was the same eunuch that falsified the order.

“So was it or not?” Ye Zhen Zhen asked Su Yue. She did not go to the scene, but Wang You Cai did went and see what happened and met with Lu Li.

“Yes, and no” Wang You Cai answered.

“O?” Ye Zhen Zhen placed her cup down and asked, a bit curious “how so?”

Wang You Cai lowered his voice and said “it is like this niang niang, Lieutenant Lu ask me to ask you, is there anyone you want to finish off”

Ye Zhen Zhen rolled her eyes, and smiled “cousin brother, is really detailed”

The empress dowager wants to kill off that person to keep her from being involved, so that eunuch that was hanged would most probably be the person who falsified the orders, and since the only witness is Lu Li, if he said it was him, then it would be him, if he said it is not, then he will not be.

If he denies, then another person would be caught to be investigated…

Lu Li has passed a few years in the palace, so he sees things better and clearer compared to Ye Zhen Zhen. The fights in the inner palace, their schemes and plans, is not any less than those at court. And the women that can exist in the inner palace, they definitely would not be clean from any schemes or plans, nor are they innocent or na?ve. As for the servants that would be missing or lost due to their plans, those would be uncountable, not enough pity to be given as well. Lu Li does not want to be involved in these, but for Ye Zhen Zhen he is willing to do it this time.

Through this case, Ye Zhen Zhen also received some wake up call. If it was not for cousin brother’s intelligence, she would really be framed now. Realising that she was truly not careful previously. Once at home, she can do what ever she likes, and no one would dare to do anything to her, but now to be in this place, she can no longer do as she likes. She knew that the inner palace was a place full of traps, schemes and danger, but that was only on the surface, not detailed enough. Previously the other cases she managed to turn the situation around herself, has made her a bit careless, and proud. Last night, has finally woke her up to the real cruel happenings that can happen in the inner palace, and made her realize if she make any small mistakes will lead to big repercussions, and could also involve her family.

These type of thoughts make her feel that she really dislikes the life in the inner palace.

But dislike is dislike, she will still need to face the reality. She cannot die, and cannot be disposed of. She has to be extra careful, plan carefully, and live properly, and stay at her position. In her heart, she was thinking if she will ever be able to leave this place during her live. But then, this wish is really too farfetched, and not possible.

To be honest, sometimes she really wants to gather all the women that creates trouble, tie them up and feed them to the pigs.

“Niang niang? Niang niang?” Wang You Cai called Ye Zhen Zhen, as she appears to be in a daze.

Returning to her senses, Ye Zhen Zhen said “go and tell Lieutenant Lu, thanks for the thoughts, but those people I want to finishi off, I can deal with them myself, make sure he doesn’t do anything”

Lu Li is only the head of the guards, if he were to be involved with the inner palace, most people will use him as an excuse to create more problems, she does not want anything to trouble him.

This case, she wants to revenge herself. Although she can’t do anything to the empress dowager now, but to give warning to the little shrimps under her is still possible.

At night, Ji Wu Jiu arrived earlier than normal. He stopped the announcement of his arrival, and walked straight in, and seeing Ye Zhen Zhen in a daze in front of the lights, he asked “what are you thinking about?”

Ye Zhen Zhen saw him, and greeted “your majesty”, with an expressionless face.

Ji Wu Jiu knows that in her heart, she is still unhappy about yesterday, and he does not know what he should do to console her, he himself is also abit angry, angry that she is still angry at him.

JI Wu Jiu sat down, and took the “Yin Yang Jing” book and look through, the inner kung fu that the book is talking about is very normal, most probably this book was bought from a bookstore outside. This type of book would only cost a few liangs, so say that it is some sort of ultimate skill, the woman should have been duped.

Ye Zhen Zhen suddenly asked “Your majesty, can you tell me, about the case yesterday besides the empress dowager, who else is involved?”

Ji Wu Jiu sold out Xu Cai Ren without second thought, “There is still Xu Cai Ren, both her and the empress dowager was acting in front of me, that is why I mistook their rumors” At the same time removing himself from the case.

Ye Zhen Zhen nodded, and decided to properly punish this Xu Cai Ren this time.

Actually, even if Ye Zhen Zhen don’t touch Xu Cai Ren, Ji Wu Jiu has decided to punish her as well. Previously towards Xu Cai Ren, he still had some brother and sisters relationship, although did not touch her body, but wanted to slowly progress her position, to allow her a peaceful live in this palace. But this time, she really went overboard, to frame the empress, to let the emperor wear the green hat, and to lead the empress dowager to scheme for such a plan… she really thought she was the only one that knows how to scheme, the rest are all stupid?!

Ye Zhen Zhen saw that Ji Wu Jiu’s face was slowly showing a sign of anger, and did not know what he is thinking about. To interact with him now is rather boring, so she decided not to bother about him, and went to bed to sleep.

Who knew, Ji Wu Jiu very quickly went over, and tightly held her in his arms, his legs were also on her body.

Ye Zhen Zhen was not used to it, and tried to push him away, but he held her extra tight, and at the end spoke to her ears, “stop messing around, sleep”

Ye Zhen Zhen was left speechless, but since she can’t avoid it, she slowly and simply accepted it, yawned, and very quickly fell asleep. Because he held her too tight, she did not sleep properly, it was almost like sometimes there was a string that was tied around her tightly. Midnight, she woke up from the heat, but not fully awoken. In between being awoke and sleep, she felt that on her legs there was something hard, that was making her uncomfortable, and subconsciously her hands went to move that thing, but no matter what, that thing did not move away, so she decided to pull that thing hard.

Her ears suddenly came a shout of pain from Ji Wu Jiu.

Ye Zhen Zhen initially thought she was dreaming, and took some time to wake up. She sat up, rubbed her eyes, and saw Ji Wu Jiu was laying side ways, with his body curled up. Both his hands was holding his crotch area, and seems to be in deep pain.

“What happened to you?” Ye Zhen Zhen asked,

“…..” Ji Wu Jiu was in deep contemplation, it was not hard to explain with words.

Ye Zhen Zhen thinks that something is truly wrong, so she called out “Call the imperial doctor!”

The doctor in charge rushed over despite the cold wind, and was fully awoken by the time he reached Kun Ning Palace. When he saw where Ji Wu Jiu was hurt, he got shocked, looking down, his eyes kept rolling, in his heart he was very curious, and the emperor and the empress, what on earth did they do….

The doctor tried his best to not show his curiosity, straightened his face and was helping Ji Wu Jiu check his injuries. He gave his prescriptions, and then only called in Ye Zhen Zhen, and looking at the both of them, “Your majesties, I hope both of you will rest for a few days, bedroom activities should be stopped these few days, and also next time… please be more gentle”

Ye Zhen Zhen has already found out earlier that she was the one to be blamed, and hearing the doctor’s wear, she nodded her head seriously.

Ji Wu Jiu suspects that Ye Zhen Zhen did not understood what the doctor said.

After the doctor left, Ji Wu Jiu’s pain has lessen greatly, his body has a layer of sweat now, due to the pain earlier, there was still droplets of sweat on his forehead. Worried and sorry, Ye Zhen Zhen kneeled on the bed and helped him wipe of his sweats.

Seeing Ye Zhen Zhen doing that, his heart felt like it was flooded with warm water, warm and very comfortable.

“Still painful?” Ye Zhen Zhen asked carefully.

“Pain” Ji Wu Jiu purposely answered in a pained voice, his facial expression showing an equally pained expression.

Ye Zhen Zhen got even more sorry, “I am sorry.. I really didn’t do it on purpose”

Ji Wu Jiu looked at her, with his eyes half closed. His eyes were very bright, with a slight shine of gentleness, but she did not see them, still engrossed in using her handkerchief to wipe of his sweat on his forehead.

Suddenly he held her hands.

“Whats wrong?” Ye Zhen Zhen wanted to free her hands, but did not manage.

Ji Wu Jiu used some strength and pulled, Ye Zhen Zhen did not manage to react, so she fell into his arms. He held her tightly into his chest, and holding her down, not allowing her to move.

“Zhen Zhen, don’t be angry anymore” Ji Wu Jiu’s voice was heard above her head, most probably due to the pain earlier, his voice carries a tone of huskiness.

Ye Zhen Zhen was leaning on his chest, did not answer, but only nodded her head lightly. Her chin knocked onto his chest twice, weakly, but caused his heart to heat up.

This pain was worth it, Ji Wu Jiu thought.

Although.. it was really painful……..
