Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
The emperor recovered quickly. At the same time, he mentioned the case that Empress Du tried to murder his son again and sent a trusted minister to investigate it thoroughly. It had been more than three years, almost four years, and much evidence had been erased. However, the official in charge of the investigation still found some clues, and then chased after the fifth prince and his mother.
The news went back to Lin’an. The emperor was sick again and forced Empress Du to stay in the mansion. He apologized and apologized every day, playing a hard trick.
Empress Du hadn’t returned to the temple for half a month, and all the things she kept in the temple had been cleaned up by the emperor’s trusted eunuchs and taken away. If nothing went wrong, she would go back with the emperor when he returned to the palace.
The court of the Du mansion was still empty, and the large clans of the Lin’an were all watching the emperor’s attitude. If he really made up with Empress Du, they could make friends with the brother and sister of the Dus. But even so, compared with Concubine Min, who gave birth to a prince, Empress Du was still not enough. Her throne had been abolished. Even if the emperor brought her back, she would not be able to regain her former glory. Who could bear to see her scarred and horrible face all day long?
All the undercurrents were buried under the appearance of the song and dance. All the people were watching or spying, but only Lin Dan and Du Ruyan were doing business as nothing happened.
“Dan, when will we sell the brocade we made? I don’t care. You have to make a dress like Xu Qian’s for me. I heard that my aunt might be able to go back to the palace with the emperor, and those cloth merchants came to me again, trying to sell the best cloth in their shop to me. Bah! When our brocade is produced, I will definitely kick them away, just like when they kicked them away from us! “Said
Ruyan angrily while tidying up the embroidery rack.
“Okay, I’ll make a new dress for you when I’m free. Is aunt Du really going back to the palace with the emperor?” Lin Dan was rarely curious about a person’s fate.
“I don’t know what she is thinking, either,” sighed Ruyan. “She has changed a lot. I can’t figure out what she is thinking about.”
“It doesn’t matter if you can’t figure it out. Go and take out the account book to see how much money we have earned recently,” said Lin Dan, rubbing her hands.
“All right, all right. I’ll bring them right now.” speaking of money, Ruyan’s gloomy expression was immediately replaced by excitement. In this world, no pain could not be cured by money, especially the money they earned every minute and every minute.
The two of them held an accounts book and slowly counted the accounts head to head. Their expressions were very serious, but their eyes were bright. Du Rusong stood at the door for a long time. Seeing that they hadn’t noticed him, he smiled helplessly. “You two really like money.”
“Oh, brother, you are here!” said Ruyan, waving her hand without raising her head.
“Du Rusong, what’s up?” Lin Dan stood up and greeted him while staring at the account book with reluctance.
“I’ll make a suit for you.” Du Rusong walked to her and smiled warmly.
“Okay, I’ll write two orders for you. What style, color, and pattern do you like?” Lin Dan took out a small notebook and carefully recorded Du Rusong’s requirements. After that, she wrote down his sizes in the lower-left corner.
“Make a dark robe, black, with auspicious cloud pattern.” Du Rusong coughed and said in a low voice, “Recently, I have gained some weight, and my size may change a little Luther, can you measure me again?”
Without any doubt, Lin Dan took Du Rusong to the inner room, took out a measuring tape, and carefully measured him. Then he nodded and said, “you’ve really become stronger, and your chest is half an inch larger.”
Du Rusong looked down at her serious face and said slowly, “Dan, you said you wanted to drive the embroidery house to the capital city. If I beg you, would you like to go with me? Don’t worry about anything. I will help you find a shop and people.”
Lin Dan was stunned for a long time before he said hesitantly, “Du Rusong, I have a good time in Lin’an. Why should I leave with you?”
Du Rusong took a deep breath and said cautiously, “I mean, are you willing to marry me?”
Lin Dan raised her head with her eyes wide open. Obviously, she didn’t expect him to make such a request. After a while, she shook her head and said, “No, I don’t want to. My mother wants me to find a son-in-law by adoption for her. If I get married, who will inherit the family business I have earned hard?”
Looking at her surprised but not happy face, Du Rusong felt both disappointed and resigned. If she could fall in love with him, why did she have to wait till today? But it didn’t matter. As long as he could be with her, it was enough as long as he could look at her and protect her. He didn’t have any more requirements.
“I see.” Du Rusong nodded slowly and then plucked up the courage to hold the petite girl in his arms.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Lin Dan bumped into Du Rusong’s chest unexpectedly. Her forehead and nose were red, and her confused expression made Rusong laugh. He tightened his arms and let them go quickly. Then he walked out without saying a word.
After a long time, Ruyan walked in quietly, poked her head, and asked, “Are you, my sister-in-law?”
“I don’t want to get married. I only want to find a son-in-law by adoption for my mom.” It didn’t matter to her whether she got married or not. But if she wanted to fulfill the wish of Lin Dafu and Zhang Hui, she must find a son-in-law and have a child, or the Lin family would be doomed.
Ruyan pouted in disappointment, but she didn’t say anything. The two of them went outside and checked the accounts absent-mindedly. They were happy to find that the revenue had increased a lot.
“Let’s go home!” said Ruyan happily, locking the account book in the closet.
“Take out a small piece of silver. Let’s go shopping and buy some embroidered thread,” said Lin Dan, rubbing her hands.
“How can a piece of silver be enough? If you want to take it, just take a big one.” Du Ruyan picked it up from the money box and finally picked up a ten tael of silver. The two of them were like mice who had stolen oil. They hid the money boxes into the dark grid under the floor tiles and sneaked out from the back door. If people who didn’t know them saw them, they would never think that they were the boss of this shop and thought they were thieves.
The two of them walked along Phoenix avenue and played all the way. Suddenly, Du Ruyan stopped and quickly pulled Lin Dan into an empty alley. She lowered her voice and said, “Don’t make any noise. My brother and his majesty are in the tavern in front of us. I don’t want to see his majesty. Let’s go on another road.”
She still remembered how ruthless the emperor had been to her. She didn’t want to see his hypocritical face at all.
“This is a dead-end. Let’s change to another alley,” said Lin Dan, pointing at the opposite.
When the two of them were about to sneak away, they saw Li Jiarong slowly walking over from the other end of the street with an arrogant expression on her face. When she passed by a passer-by, she would frown and fan her nose, as if she couldn’t bear to be too close to these pariahs. Meng Si followed her step by step like a servant girl. Obviously, they didn’t notice that the emperor was also in this street. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be acting like this.
“We’re not leaving!” Du Ruyan immediately changed her mind, “let’s play a trick on Li Jiarong.”
“How?” as soon as she finished speaking, Lin Dan was pulled out by Ruyan. The two walked straight to Li Jiarong with their heads down and bumped into her.
“Are you blind? Can’t you see the way?” Li Jiarong pushed the two women away. When she saw their faces, she immediately showed an expression of disgust.
“You bumped into us first, didn’t you?” said Du Ruyan in a low voice. “What are you proud of? My aunt will come back to the capital soon. You will still be trampled under my feet soon.”
Li Jiarong was instantly enraged and screamed loudly: “That bitch’s face has been ruined. She still wants to go back to the capital city. She is dreaming! My aunt can destroy her once, and then she can be destroyed two times. You and Du Rusong can’t escape either. As long as you stay in Lin’an, I can trample on you as I want! If you want to fight with me, let’s see if you are alive! That bitch is a hen that won’t lay eggs, But my aunt has already given birth to the ninth prince. Can she compete with my aunt? In the future, my aunt will go further… “
Before she could finish her words, a stern rebuke came from the stairs across the street, “You evil woman, shut up!”
She looked up and her face turned pale. The emperor was standing by the window, looking at her with malicious eyes. Behind him stood Li Ran, Li Xiudian, Du Rusong, the eldest prince, and the others. The scold was from Li Ran. He was looking at her with a livid face, and his lips were trembling with anger.
“Your Majesty…” just as she uttered a word, her mouth was covered by Du Ruyan.
“Uncle, you are also here,” said Du Ruyan with a smile, as if she just saw a group of people.
The sullen emperor was pleased by the word “Uncle”, which he hadn’t seen for a long time. Seeing that she was so smart and knew to cover up his identity, his face was softer. “Let’s have dinner here. Are you hungry? Come and eat with me.”
“No, No. my little sister and I are going to watch the play. I won’t have dinner with you. It’s boring.” As soon as they left, Li Jiarong stood still with cold hands and feet. Du Ruyan grew up in the palace and had an unusual relationship with the emperor. She dared to make jokes and leave without saying goodbye to the emperor, but Li Jiarong didn’t even dare to look at the emperor. This was the difference between a real lady and the faker.
The emperor looked at the back of Du Ruyan, shook his head, and laughed, with a doting expression on his face. When he looked at Li Jiarong again, his eyes instantly froze into ice. “The bitch of the Dus? Destroy her? Further?” he turned to Li Ran, word by word, “It seems that there are many things that I haven’t found out yet. Mr. Li, do you think so?”
Li Ran and Li Xiudian immediately knelt down, sweating.
The emperor stared at their dark heads, and his eyes darkened. The truth that Fange was framed must not be as simple as it seemed. And if Concubine Min wanted to go further, what kind of further method did she want to be Empress Du or more?
As he was getting weaker and weaker, the emperor’s attitude towards these princes and concubines had gradually changed from love to defense. It seemed that only Empress Du, who was lifelong infertility, the loss of the power of her own family, and wholeheartedly loved him, was the only person he could trust. However, he even lost such a person…[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
