Pampered Poisonous Royal Wife - chapter 609
Mu Yunyao came back to her senses and suppressed her thoughts, “Grandmother, Imperial Concubine Qi entered the palace the same year as Imperial Concubine Li, and was pregnant the same year. Afterwards, she was conferred the title of Imperial Consort the same year, but this Imperial Concubine Qi doesn’t seem to be as eye-catching in the harem as Imperial Concubine Li.” Grand Princess Yi De laughed. “Imperial Consort Qi is the youngest daughter of the Duke of Wei, moreover, she is the only daughter. She has been doted on since she was young, but her personality is extremely clear, and she doesn’t have the same kind of illness as the other mischievous ladies.
Judging from her weak and delicate appearance, a normal four to five people wouldn’t be able to take more than a few strikes from her. Back then, she had even relied on her martial arts to help the Emperor block an assassin. The Emperor didn’t say it out loud, but in his heart, he clearly remembered this relationship. ”
“Such a legendary woman should be able to live a carefree life, but why is it the opposite?” In the past, there were a few great families in the imperial court that held a lot of power. Only with his support could the emperor’s power stabilize. In order to stabilize their relationship, the emperor took in Imperial Consort Qi to enter the palace. Previously, she had already decided to get married, and now she had someone she liked. The Duke of Wei, in the name of his loyalty, forcefully separated them and sent Imperial Concubine Qi to the emperor’s side. Although Imperial Concubine Qi didn’t say anything, there was a knot in her heart all these years. Even when she was in the imperial harem, she was always out there. It was as if she was looking down on the mortal world.
It’s just that I’ve always been indulging her. ”
Mu Yunyao was stunned for a moment, then said in a flash of understanding, “So that’s how it is, then has Imperial Concubine Qi already thought it through?”
Princess Yi De smiled. “Even if she can’t figure it out, she still has to think for King Yu. As a mother, for her own child, she can do anything.”
Mu Yunyao sighed in her heart as she stepped forward to help massage Princess Yi De’s shoulders. “Grandmother, there’s something I need to trouble you with.”
“You and I don’t need to talk about this. What’s the matter?”
“The Emperor wants to take action against the Lee family. King Yue and I also wanted to help His Highness Duke Yu. However, during the investigation, we discovered that the Li family seemed to be involved with the Royal family of the Northern Frontier.”
Hearing this, Grand Princess Yi De suddenly raised her hand to press down on Mu Yunyao’s hand. Her eyes instantly became extremely sharp, “Has the news been confirmed?”
“My men have been placed beside the Li Family and King Yu. He has done a very proper job. The news that he took the risk to spread should not be fake.”
Princess Yi De slightly narrowed her eyes. “The Li family cannot stay. Yao`er, what do you want our grandmother to do?” As for the matters of the imperial harem, I couldn’t even get a hand in it with His Royal Highness, so I wanted to ask my grandmother to help me thoroughly suppress Imperial Concubine Li. Furthermore, Prime Minister Li’s sons didn’t give birth to a child or a daughter, and her daughter, other than Imperial Concubine Li, no one else had a son.
“I feel that this matter is too unusual. The Li Family has always kept this matter a secret, so there is no way to investigate it. I would like to ask grandma to try and see if I can find an opening from Imperial Concubine Li’s side.”
“Don’t worry, Yao`er, leave this matter to me.”
“Thank you, grandmother.” This Li Qingzhou… Yao’er, don’t spread this matter out for now, lest we alert the Li family to something bad that they might do. The Li family’s disguise is too good, no one knows if they have any more hidden plans behind them.
“I have the confidence that before we completely eliminate the Li Clan, we must not let the Li Clan be alerted.”
“Grandmother, rest assured, I and His Highness will pay attention.”
In the next few days, the harem was in an uproar.
Imperial Concubine Li’s face was covered with a lot of medicine, but none of it was good. All the concubines in the imperial harem made Imperial Concubine Li even more anxious. She even tried to find a way to bring the matter to the emperor’s attention.
After the emperor found out, the imperial concubines fell silent for a while, but during this period of time, the emperor showed no reaction at all. They immediately became happy, and the frequency of visits to the palace increased even more.
After all, the emperor had only banned Imperial Concubine Li’s feet, and hadn’t told her not to concern herself with the matter. Imperial Concubine Li used to like to put on airs most of the time, and every day she had to ask the lowly imperial concubine to pay her respects. However, after these concubines had gone to visit, Imperial Concubine Li’s palace would be filled with broken porcelain. When Imperial Concubine Qi counted the expenses of the imperial harem, she found it and directly reported it to the emperor. The emperor ordered that the palace of Liu-li should be given some porcelain and furniture that could resist being beaten. Imperial Concubine Qi directly ordered for the Internal Affairs Division to accept it.
He swapped some copper and wood for it.
The king had come to the palace several times to seek an audience with the emperor for this matter. However, the emperor had avoided all of them, and many of the courtiers and officials in the imperial court had begun to distance themselves from him.
After the king returned to his manor, he angrily smashed his study.
When Li Qingzhou arrived and saw his appearance, he could not help but advise, “Your Highness, you still need to be patient, don’t panic.”
“Grandfather, royal father said that he would reject the candidate for the position of Crown Prince when it is the new year. But look at the situation now. Mufei’s situation is critical, and the ministers in the imperial court are keeping a distance from me. How can this be possible?” It was my negligence, I didn’t expect that just probing the Grand Princess Yi would have such serious consequences. However, Your Highness doesn’t need to be so anxious, the Grand Princess Yi’s influence is so great, doesn’t the Emperor feel a little unsatisfied? As for the courtiers, they were just fence-sitters,
“Right now, those who fear the Grand Princess have distanced themselves from us. However, the moment the Grand Princess falls, they will immediately come over and join us.”
The King frowned. “But there isn’t much time left, and we don’t have any evidence of the Grand Princess’s crimes. How can we bring her down?”
“Time is a bit tight, but the time set by the Emperor to reject the crown prince isn’t something that can’t be changed.”
“Grandfather, do you have a way?”
“I already have an idea, we’ll know in two days, please calm down, Your Highness.”
After the first winter, the weather quickly became cold, and within a few days, a large amount of snow had arrived.
Mu Yunyao and the King of Assassins left the palace and arrived at the Nebula Market. The wedding dress had already been cut, and many small patterns had already been completed. Mu Yunyao wanted to work on the dragon and phoenix pattern herself, so she often left the palace during the day. After the relationship between father and son had eased up, it was rare for the emperor to have a fatherly and filial relationship with the emperor. He called the emperor over to his side and accompanied him throughout the day, knowing that the Duke of Yue wanted to accompany Mu Yunyao out of the palace. He was still very unhappy, so he complained in front of Grand Princess Jiede, saying that the emperor had Yue Shan’s wife and had forgotten about his father once the emperor had a wife.
