The chopsticks in Li Ying’s hand broke in two.
Yun Qing said without changing his face, “There are three unfilial piety, and there is no queen as a great minister. This is also for the good of your majesty.”
“Yun Qingci.” Li Ying breathed heavily and said dumbly: “Do you have to do this?”
“I am the queen of your majesty.” Yun Qing said for granted: “I should have shared my worries for your majesty. I used to be unreasonable. Now I want to be a good queen. I hope your majesty can cooperate.”
“I did, I once hoped that you could be a little more rational.” Li Ying said: “But I never said that I hope you will be like the queens of the past…”
“The minister is not for your majesty, but for himself.” Yun Qingci looked at him directly and said: “Your Majesty chose the Yun family daughter to give birth to the dragon son. This is a great thing for me and for the Yun family. Your Majesty, don’t you want to compensate me?”
Li Ying curled his lips, and after a few breaths, he suddenly got up and walked away.
Yun Qingci’s voice made him stand at the door: “Your Majesty, think about it carefully, the minister will be ready to go in these few days.”
Li Ying turned his back to him, his back bends silently, and straightened again, taking a big step and leaving quickly.
Yun Qing finished his breakfast slowly and ordered someone to send news to Xiangfu. At the same time, Li Ying’s carriage also stopped in front of the Xiangfu Gate.
Yun Xiang had just received news from Yun Qingci that he was going to select a good woman from the Yun family to enter the palace. He was shocked and uneasy, and he was about to go to the palace to talk to Yun Qingci.
See what is going on.
After all, it was Yun Qingci who loved Li Ying so much, how could he take the initiative to send a woman to him?
Although it is a good thing that he really wants to open up, the only thing Yun Xiang is afraid of is that in case he is having a temper with Li Ying and doing something that he regrets.
After all, he was still the queen, and he didn’t really make peace with Li Ying.
As a result, Li Ying came here, and Yun Xiang hurried out to greet him. Just out of the front hall, he had walked to the front like the wind, and his voice was hoarse: “Teacher.”
Yunxiang raised his eyes and saw his dark eyes faintly moist. He suddenly remembered that when he first ascended the throne, whenever he retreated, he would slowly walk down from the dragon seat, and then sat on the steps with his head hanging in a daze. Emperor.
Once in a deep impression, the boy put his wide sleeves on his knees, and his head was deeply sunken between his wide sleeves. He said in a low voice, “Teacher, I don’t want to be an emperor anymore.”
He maintained the courtesy of monarchs and ministers, and stood beside him with Liu Ziru, sighing softly: “Your Majesty, don’t say dejected words.”
“Friends are estranged, teachers and students are distracted, mother and son are calculating…what is so good about being this emperor?”
Liu Ziru hurriedly reminded: “Your Majesty!”
Yunxiang still stood still, he just warned him calmly and gently: “You can’t be the emperor if you are indecisive, your majesty, get up quickly and go back to Jiangshan Temple.”
“If that’s the case, you can’t say it anymore.”
He didn’t say much.
The young emperor’s sleeves were lightly closed, and he didn’t answer for a long time.
At that time, Yun Xiang thought, maybe he hoped that the teachers and students would sit together and talk like when he was still the prince. If Li Ying had any questions, he could get enlightenment from him.
But monarchs and ministers are different.
They must beware of each other, lest one change their hearts first. Yunxiang could no longer treat him as a student, and Li Ying could no longer treat him as a teacher.
The emperor, he is the most noble person in the world.
No matter how reluctant he is, he sits down in this position and can’t show a half-shock. He is the emperor, even if it is just a young dragon, he has to use a powerful dragon, otherwise, the courtiers, the people, and the enemy will not put him in the eyes.
He can only teach him to put the country first, and he can only teach him how to be a good emperor.
All the thoughts in his heart can only be digested by himself, because people who are close to him will be jealous. If one day he grows into a real emperor, those who understand his youth or the shameful era may die.
The courtesy of monarchs and ministers is not far or near. It is just the right distance to talk about what should be talked about, and only talk about what should be said.
Yunxiang left without looking back.
Taking the lead to distance himself from his young emperor was his first step in teaching him to become an emperor.
Yunxiang took him to the study.
After seven years, the boy has reached the weak crown. He has done very well. Yun Xiang is very pleased, but he dare not look down upon him.
He is no longer the villain who persecuted the emperor to grow up. He is only a courtier now. No matter what Li Ying came to him for today, he can only listen to him.
Li Ying didn’t wear the dragon robe, just a regular dress. When he entered the door, he didn’t sit in the main seat, but sat quietly under his head.
Yunxiang sat under him with him, face to face with him, and said, “Your Majesty is here today, why is it?”
“Is that the queen’s person just now?”
Yun Xiang didn’t hide it, but he quickly explained: “The Queen wanted to inform the old minister that she would prepare a few good women to be sent to the palace so that His Majesty could choose when the dragon son would be born.”
“Does the teacher think this is appropriate?”
“This… of course it’s not appropriate.” Yun Xiang considered his words, and said: “There are many concubines in the palace, and your Majesty can choose whoever you like. You don’t have to have a girl from the Yun family. Suspected of succumbing to power.”
He described Yun Qingci’s fault as objectively as possible, with a slight drumbeat in his heart.
Holding the tea cup, Li Ying remembered Yun Xiang who had come to kneel and beg for Yun Qing’s resignation in his previous life.
He had just been awakened by Liu Ziru in his sleep and hurried out of the sleeping hall, he saw Yunxiang kneeling in Jiangshan Hall with tears in his eyes.
That was the only time since he took the throne, Yun Xiang showed his true emotions in front of him.
He was wearing a single shirt, walking a few steps forward to help, the big cloak on his shoulders fell on the ground, but Yun Xiang shook his head: “The old minister is wrong. Back then, the old minister educated your majesty. There must be no affair with children. But today, the old minister wants to That unfilial son… come to ask your majesty to let him go back to the palace for the sake of the minister’s old bones.”
On that day, he was forced by Yun Qingci to have no choice.
So I can only go to him.
Li Ying stood up straight, Liu Ziru picked up the fallen cloak and shook, and put it on his shoulders again.
“You still know that you have an old bone.” Li Ying looked at him for a few breaths, laughed, and said: “I know what the teacher meant, let’s get up first. If the root of the disease falls, what should be done.”
“Your Majesty, please, forgive the old minister for this recklessness.” Perhaps because he was afraid that he would think too much, Yun Xiang hurriedly knacked his head. The black yarn on his head was already taken off when he entered the hall and set aside. There was only one on his gray hair. Sujing wooden hairpin is even more senile: “Old minister, really, there is no way…The child, the old minister can’t control him, can’t, just watch him go to death.”
Li Ying didn’t say a word, and ordered people to bring the futon, one placed beside Yun Xiang and the other under him, and sat down quietly in front of him.
“Does the teacher think that after being an emperor for seven years, I have a heart of stone, and I can’t even remember the most basic respect for the teacher?”
Liu Ziru hurriedly lifted up Yunxiang and sat on the futon together. Yunxiang hesitated, with some faint timidity: “Your Majesty, veteran…”
“Since the teacher came today as the father-in-law, I am just another child of yours. Today you have the right to be a father and son to talk. Father doesn’t need to be polite.”
That night, they talked a lot, regardless of state affairs, only about personal affairs.
He didn’t know what Yun Xiang was thinking, but when he left, he seemed to be shocked. After that, when he saw him, he always lowered his head slightly, faintly timid.
Li Ying knew that it was because he felt that he had crossed the distance between the emperor and his ministers, and he couldn’t pass this hurdle in his heart.
He also knew that Yun Xiang didn’t tell Yun Qingci about the day of his heart-to-heart relationship, maybe because the other party was too domineering, he was beating with this, hoping that Yun Qingci could have more respect for the emperor, and don’t always play in the palace. temper.
They all knew, but no one told Yun Qingci, because they all hoped that he would restrain himself.
Perhaps, this link is also part of Yun Qingci’s suicide.
What made him constrain? Yun Qing has a clear-cut speech, and has not been overbearing. After all, it is him who did not tell him everything, because he also hopes that Yun Qingci can be a little behaved and can treat him as a little bit. The emperor, save him some face.
But he was clearly his husband, he was jealous, extreme, and extreme, all because he didn’t give him enough sense of security.
In this life, no one forced the cloud to appear, so when Li Ying came today, he probably had to go for nothing.
Yun Xiang has his own persistence as a courtier. Behind him is a large family, and every word he says must be cautious.
They were still separated by the courtesy of monarchs and ministers, Yunxiang was cautious, and had no plans to contact each other.
Li Ying sat for a while and said, “The teacher also thinks that I should have an heir?”
“Your Majesty has heirs, and there will be successors. This is what the hundred officials hope.” Yunxiang said: “The queen has grown up now, and is no longer the ignorant child before. Your Majesty considers that this is also a good thing.”
There were successors in the country, and all officials shared the hope of the common hope, and the queen began to consider him.
But no one cares what he thinks.
The Yunqing resignation that was once dedicated to him has completely disappeared.
Every step he takes now is either stabbing him or plotting for the family.
A child is nothing but a child.
Li Ying stood up and said in a deep voice, “I also hope that the teacher will enter the palace and persuade the emperor. I don’t think about the child.”
He stepped out of the study without looking back.
Yun was quite ready to enter the palace. Yun Qingci had expected him to come, but he didn’t expect him to come so quickly.
He ordered people to prepare tea, a line of screens appeared, and Yun Xianghan glared at him angrily.
Yun Qingci straightened his shoulders and said, “Father…”
Yun Qingci slowly walked over and sat down far away from him.
Yunxiang blew his beard and said, “Sit here.”
Yun Qingci moved over with a harp, put his finger on the table, and was hit hard by Yun Xiang.
Yun Qingci hissed, held up his hands and blew on the red fingertips, muffledly said: “Daddy, what is this?”
“Do you mean to dismiss the harem?”
“Of course not.” Yun Qing replied: “He did it all.”
“Then I will ask you again, do you know that choosing a woman from the Yun family to enter the palace is a way of gaining power!”
“This, I discussed with him, he will consider it carefully, we first prepare the person, he will naturally…”
“He has already come to Xiangfu to warn him to be his father.” Yun Xiang said in a huff: “He doesn’t want a girl from the Yun family, Yun Qing resigns. Although he is nice to you now, you can’t be arrogant and take advantage of the opportunity. This is a capital crime!”
“It’s just a woman…” Yun Qing whispered, “How can it be so serious.”
He blew his beard and stared, Yun Qingci was full of upset, and said, “If you don’t, don’t, then it’s a big deal to choose from a good concubine. If the child comes down, it will be the mother and the child.”
“Naughty!” Yun Xiang patted the table, Yun Qingci looked at him with wide eyes, and only listened to him in a deep voice: “If you want people to know nothing, paper can’t contain fire! You must never do this. Despicable thing!”
“As long as it is beautifully done, without leaving a handle…”
Under his father’s increasingly solemn eyes, Yun Qingci gradually did not dare to say much.
Yunxiang slowly said: “If you do evil, you will eventually be punished.”
The Yun family has never been a man of power, and did not bother to do it. Yun Qingci looked at him for a while, and suddenly felt that even if his father was for the family in his previous life, he would definitely not form a party for personal gain.
Later, it was discovered that the Yun family had really formed a party for private business. It was either framed or it was just a trick.
He really wanted children. What if Li Ying really died without children?
If my father feels that leaving mothers and children is too despicable, then he can only cooperate with others. Ning Rou can’t. She is too ambitious, and it is best to pick one that is easy to control.
Yun Qingci sent away Yunxiang and looked at the days. Tomorrow is the fifth day of the Lunar New Year. It is expected that a concubine will be driven out of the palace after the year. Then tomorrow will be the last day.
Yun Qing resigned: “Go and call Li Fei.”
As the name suggests, Li Fei was born very beautiful, she is the daughter of Han Shangshu, and Han Shangshu has a very good relationship with the Yun family. If they can cooperate, it will be better.
But even so, she was still a little afraid of Yun Qing’s resignation, and she looked a little shy when she entered the door.
This kind of thing, can’t be the meaning of Yiyun’s words, he ordered people to prepare fruit cakes and handed them over, and asked her softly: “Do you want to stay in the palace?”
As soon as she said this, as if she was about to drive her out, Li Fei’s expression changed, and she knelt down immediately: “The queen, the queen, if the concubine has done something wrong, I hope the queen will make it clear!”
“You are right.” Yun Qingci motioned to the maid beside her to lift her up, and said: “It’s just that your majesty is going to dismiss the harem and Fang Er waits to go home and remarry.”
Your Majesty actually did this for Yun Qingci? !
Li Fei was stunned, she couldn’t help but envy, and said with some defensiveness: “The empress means…”
“Although I was domineering in the past, the pros and cons can still be distinguished. If this happens, it will inevitably arouse public anger. His Majesty will have to deal with the birth of the ministers at that time, and I am afraid that it will be annoying.”
Li Fei immediately understood: “You want to stay as a concubine, alone in the palace?”
“If you are willing, you and I will serve the king in the future.” Yun Qing resigned, “I showed you in advance, because you have a good relationship with the Han family and my Yun family. You can go back and consider it slowly, but Only tomorrow night will your Majesty suppress the imperial decree, just to let everyone have a good year. After tomorrow, all the severance decree will be issued. Only if your Majesty is lucky, can you stay in the palace.”
When Li Fei slowly walked out of Chaoyang Palace, the sky was already dim, and the maid beside her whispered: “How can a jealous person like the Empress raise such a matter? Will it be fraudulent?”
“He should be serious.” Li Fei said slowly: “If he is the same as before, it is just right for your majesty to dismiss the harem, he doesn’t need to make this extra effort to embarrass me.”
“He really wants to work with me and keep me in the palace.”
“What’s the reason?”
“Maybe it’s for your Majesty.” Li Fei sighed, and said: “He is so hot and can tolerate this. I really love your Majesty.”
“Then, girl, how about you?”
Li Fei was stunned for a moment, smiled faintly, and said, “I, if I can do something for my father, this life will be worth it.”
“What about your Majesty? You have never seen him a few times, and you have no feelings with him…”
“It’s just that he has no feelings for me.” Li Fei sighed, but suddenly stopped and looked forward with bated breath.
The man walked slowly, followed silently behind him, the other person’s eyes fell on her, and then gradually approached.
Li Fei and the servants knelt down immediately: “See your majesty for your concubines.”
Li Ying looked at her solemnly: “Why does the Queen look for you?”
“The Queen…” Li Fei whispered: “Said your Majesty will dismiss the harem and ask the concubine if you want to stay in the palace.”
She heard the sound of tightly squeezing her five fingers, and subconsciously lowered her head.
The man strode away, and the wind curled up on her robe blew her face, making her shiver sturdily.
She knelt until Luan hurried away, only then was the sole of her feet softly supported by the maidservant to stand up, and said with a pale face: “He, is he, angry after being mad?”
The maidservant said: “The maidservant doesn’t understand, the queen is all about him, why is he angry?”
Li Fei thought for a while, and said: “It looks like I’m out of play, hey.”
Li Ying came to Chaoyang Palace.
Yun Qingci was watering the flowers in the warm room, and the small silver watering pot was held by the thin white hand, making it more delicate.
The warm room was hot, and Li Ying stood at the door looking at him blankly.
Yun Qingci didn’t stop his movements, he only glanced at him with Yu Guang.
Neither person spoke.
Li Ying walked in and stood motionless in front of him, still staring straight at him.
Yun Qingci continued to water the flowers casually, he turned away, and Li Ying followed him a little bit, as if trying to make him feel guilty with his eyes.
Yun Qingci started to get bored.
He stepped on Li Ying’s foot.
The man’s complexion did not change, he still looked at him without even moving a bit.
“Why did you come with Li Fei?”
“Cooperation.” Yun Qingci said: “The minister promised her that in the future we two will serve your majesty together. If we have a little prince or princess, we will also take care of it together.”
“How could there be a prince and princess?”
“Doesn’t it depend on your Majesty?”
Li Ying grabbed his wrist, Yun Qingci was in pain, and the pot dropped to the ground, a sharp look appeared between his eyebrows.
Li Ying immediately relaxed, still holding on to him, and said: “I tell you, I don’t need a child, and whether there is a successor in Jiangshan, you don’t need to worry about it.”
“Then what if you are dead?”
Li Ying’s pupils contracted and his tone was angry: “That’s how you want me to die?!”
“I didn’t say that.” Yun Qing resigned: “But what if something happens to you? I can’t give birth…”
“Then all this will be given to you!”
Yun Qingci was stunned for a moment.
Li Ying’s eyes flushed, and said, “If you don’t want to take over the child of the adopted brother, you will take over. With such a powerful force as the Yun family, wouldn’t it be easy for you to get power?”
Yun Qingci became more and more unable to understand him: “I didn’t let you approach the imperial concubine before, and you still went to someone’s palace to drink, but now I personally pick someone for you, but you are not willing, Li Ying, what exactly do you want? Does the picture have trouble with me?”
“I ask you, how many times did I go to someone else’s palace to drink?”
“…I can’t remember.”
“Okay, then I’ll tell you.” Li Ying said: “It was Concubine Rong once. She had a remnant chess game. After I passed, I asked for a chess game. I met you when I left the palace. The time I stayed there. Not even half an hour.”
“There is also Qi Fei. She got a sword from nowhere. I went, and as soon as the front foot arrived, you arrived at the back foot.”
“Fei Ning, she asked me to drink in the palace that day. I admit that that time, I deliberately wanted to drink to relieve boredom… I admit all these mistakes.”
“In the past two years, I have only been to these concubines less than five times. Every time I explained to you why I can’t send someone there, why I have to go in person, but since they have entered the palace, I should always Behave like this, if I stay with you all the time, Baiguan will insult you every day…”
“So what are you wronging?” Yun Qingci interrupted him, and he raised his face, earnestly bewildered: “You only want me, they scold me, if you don’t want me, they still scold me… The scolding one.”
“You are wronged, you have recruited concubines one after another in the palace, the Sannomiya and the Sixth Courtyard, the blessing of the Qi people, I am running behind you every day, and watching you make the person who troubles me every day as a noble concubine, you Why are you wronged…” Yun Qingci said inexplicably, “If you were all for me before, I am also for you now.”
“You dare to say that you didn’t deliberately ignore me, you dare to say that you didn’t deliberately make trouble with me, you dare to say that you did not hold Concubine Ning to counterbalance me?!”
“I want you to converge…!”
“Then I have converged now.” Yun Qing said: “So what are you wronged again? Your majesty takes all the wrongs in the world. I deserve to pay for my life and get nothing?”
He said maliciously: “Do you want me to follow you like before, and it’s better to die for you again?”
Li Ying took a step back, and his forehead jumped wildly again, buzzing sharply with pain.
Yun Qingci didn’t let him go at all: “Don’t play any infatuation here with me. If it weren’t for me to hold on tightly, your children are all running away now! Okay, now you have to change your mind, and I should fulfill it. Your so-called affection keeps you moving… It seems that all of this is your pledge to me, consistent.”
“Do I deserve to be called by you to come and go?!”
“Li Ying.” Yun Qing said one by one, “You are really disgusting.”
Li Ying’s face was pale as frost.
He is different from Yun Qingci, he is not a person who can speak everything.
But Yun Qingci can.
He was sharp, sharp, like a hedgehog, arranging his edges mercilessly to all enemies.
He looked at Yun Qingci with red eyes.
Yun Qingci took a step closer again. He stared at Li Ying and said, “I have been wronged for you all my life. Have I said anything?”
“It’s just letting you give birth to a child. It’s not that you gave birth yourself. You have thought about things like this many times before, but because you want to reform yourself, you have to lose your temper at me, as if I was the heinous. That person…I am forcing you to be unfaithful.”
“Don’t you think you are very selfish?” Yun Qingci said, “I can leave everything for you, and now let you pay a little bit for me. The child of your Li family is born. You are just like a loyal and loyal man. …What qualifications do you have.”
Li Ying held his head, twisted and backed, breathing quickly, cold sweat rolled from his forehead.
Yun Qingci stood straight and gave him a look stingy.
“Your Majesty is uncomfortable, so go back first, and you won’t be in a hurry to come back tomorrow.”
He turned around, picked up the silver pot again, and poured water on the flower branches.
Behind him, Li Ying’s voice came in a low voice: “I didn’t, I didn’t think about it… never.”
“Okay.” Yun Qing resigned without looking back, “Then you will give me a piece of evidence, how do you prove that you never thought about having a child, never thought about a goodbye palace concubine.”
Li Ying’s sore face and neck were full of blue veins. He tried to hold his head and said in a low voice, “I can’t.”
“I can’t treat women…”
Yun Qingci stopped his movements. After a long time, he turned around. Li Ying sank and sat on the ground, panting heavily, holding his head in pain, his long hair scattered.
Yun Qingci looked at him for a while before saying, “I don’t believe it.”
“Unless your majesty is willing, let the minister find a maid to try.”
There was a very light, crisp sound, accompanied by a muffled hum.
Li Ying removed one of his own wrist bones, and his movements were very neat, as if he had done it many times.
Perhaps this pain relieved his headache.
He finally raised his face.
The cold sweat rolled down the blue veins of his neck.
“Aci…” He stared at the lover in front of him, his voice dumb, “Don’t be so cruel.”
The author has something to say: Ci Zai: You deserve it.
Li Huang: You are right.
