Su Shi was completely drunk.
Hua Jinguan did not lie, his hidden wine was indeed the best immortal drink.
It was soft in the mouth, but had an endless aftertaste.
The three of them drank from early morning until dark, from the banquet hall to the study, and back to the banquet hall, drinking all of Hua Residence’s hidden wine.
By now, Hua Jinguan had laid under the table.
Hua Manlou hugged the table leg with a lewd smile and muttered “Hehe, I will be gentle with you”.
Only Su Shi could barely stand up, but his eyes were also a little confused.
Looking at his messy surroundings, he threw away his empty jug and staggered out of the hall.
“Greetings, Duke Su.”
When the people from the Hua Residence saw him, they bowed in greeting.
The servant said excitedly, “My lord, shall I send you back?”
This was the Duke, the favorite person by Her Majesty’s side, if something went wrong on the way, things would become very troublesome.
Su Shi shook his head and said, “No need, there should be someone outside to pick me up.”
He walked out of the door of the Hua Residence.
The golden palanquin was indeed already parked outside the door, and a eunuch in luxurious clothes greeted him and said, “Sir Duke, Her Majesty has sent me to pick you up.”
Su Shi nodded, “Feng Chaoge is truly wise.”
The eunuch grimaced, as if he did not hear, and bowed his head, “You are drunk, please get into the palanquin.”
Su Shi got onto the palanquin.
The eunuch glanced at the housekeeper.
The servant whispered, “I didn’t hear anything.”
“It’s better if you don’t hear anything.”
The eunuch said in a loud voice, “Raise the palanquin and return to the palace.”
The golden palanquin made its way smoothly to the palace.
The servant stood in place, his legs trembling, his back already drenched in cold sweat.
Su Shi sat on the palanquin seat, the wine quickly surged and he soon fell asleep in a daze.
After an unknown amount of time, a soft call sounded in his ears, “Sir Duke, Sir Duke?”
Su Shi opened his eyes in confusion, only to see that he was somehow out of the palanquin and standing in the center of the palace’s inner courtyard.
The luxuriously dressed eunuch supported him and said with a smile, “Sir Duke, the bedroom is up ahead, we can only escort you here.”
“Have a good rest, Duke Su.”
Su Shi patted his shoulder and walked to the courtyard wall alone.
“My name is not Su ……”
The eunuch laughed bitterly.
This duke really don’t look like a person in the official world at all.
However, this should be the reason why Her Majesty likes him, right?
The eunuch shook his head and turned to leave.
The palace environment was very complex, with one palace being very similar to another.
At this moment, the moon was at the peak of the sky and it was dark in all directions, so Su Shi was somewhat confused, “Which palace did the Holy Empress let me stay in?”
At that moment, he saw a ray of light coming from the front.
“It should be this one.”
Su Shi swayed and walked over.
Behind the luxurious curtains, hot air billowed.
Feng Chaoge dipped into the spiritual spring, a hint of comfort brushing her majestic brows.
Although her jade body was immaculate and impervious to cold and heat, soaking in the bath was one of the few ways she could relax.
As Empress of Linlang, she seemed regal, but in reality she had so many things to worry about.
The threat of outisders, the invasion of the demons, the livelihood of the people, the reorganization of the dynasty …… and only when she was bathing could she momentarily forget about it all.
“The Empress Hegemony is just a laughing stock, no better than a drunken life?”
“That sounds fun.”
“But unfortunately, I can’t get drunk ……”
Feng Chaoge’s eyes were sparse and somewhat empty, and she was far different from her usual majestic and terrifying appearance.
At that moment, the sound of footsteps woke her up.
She was so absorbed in her humming that she didn’t even realize that someone had walked into her bedroom!
Feng Chaoge did not like people around her, especially when she was bathing, so even the palace guards and maids would back off, but she did not expect that someone would be so bold!
It was a time that was entirely her own.
“You’re looking for death!”
A trace of anger swept across her phoenix eyes, and her divine sense poured out like a mountain.
But when she saw the visitor’s appearance, she couldn’t help but freeze for a moment.
“That’s actually him?”
In this dazed state, the other party had already walked around the screen and stood in front of her.
The two looked at each other. Su Shi hiccupped, “Yo, take a shower?”
Feng Chaoge: “……”
Seeing his drunken appearance, Feng Chaoge forced herself to restrain her killing intent, “Who let you in?”
Su Shi shrugged, “Aren’t you the one who let me sleep in the palace?”
Feng Chaoge gritted his teeth, “I let you stay in the Palace of Gods, here, this is my bedroom!”
“It’s okay, I don’t mind.”
Looking at the beauty in front of him, Su Shi’s eyes became even more confused.
Feng Chaoge’s green hair was rolled into a bun, and her delicate body was immersed in the bathtub, revealing only her white and delicate collarbone.
Her cheeks were slightly flushed under the blowing hot air.
Through the clear spiritual spring water, a hint of femininity can be faintly seen.
“Obviously very beautiful, why do you have to be an Empress?”
Su Shi shook his head and sighed, “What a waste.”
As soon as he finished speaking, he fell to the ground with a thud.
Feng Chaoge flew up, the water vapor instantly dried up and a bathrobe was automatically worn on her body.
With lotus steps, she walked to Su Shi’s side.
He was lying on the ground, sleeping soundly, seemingly completely drunk.
Thinking of what she had just seen, Feng Chaoge’s eyebrows shot up in anger and she said to herself, “Why didn’t I just kill him?”
The next day.
Sunlight came into the room through the window rafters.
Su Shi opened his eyes in a daze.
He saw that he was lying on a luxurious bed, surrounded by precious silk curtains, with a golden phoenix embroidered on the bed, emitting a fragrance of freshness.
He was under the impression that he had drunk the Hua family’s father and son wine to death, and then the eunuch picked him up.
“This should be the imperial palace.”
Su Shi sat down and lay down comfortably.
Hua Jinguan’s hidden wine is indeed a good thing.
Even if he was unconscious, he still woke up refreshed once he woke up.
When he got up and lifted the treasure curtain, his entire movement froze.
He only saw Feng Chaoge wearing a phoenix robe and sitting on a chair sipping tea.
Su Shi frowned and said, “What are you doing here?”
Feng Chaoge said indifferently, “This is my bedroom, what do you think I’m doing here?”
Su Shi froze.
Feng Chaoge sneered, “Yesterday you walked into my bedroom and saw me taking a bath, Duke Su’s memory wouldn’t be that bad, right?”
Su Shi gulped.
He, watching the Holy Empress take a bath?
What a joke!
But something vaguely seemed like it made him remember something.
Last night, bathing, hot air, vaguely visible femininity ……
Su Shi grimaced.
Feng Chaoge’s eyes lifted slightly, “Have you remembered?”
She put down her teacup and walked towards Su Shi, her phoenix eyes as deep as an abyss, “Barging into the bedroom and insulting my body, this is a great crime that will kill all nine clans! What do you think I should do to you?”
Su Shi’s voice moved and he said hesitantly, “How about we pretend nothing happened?”
