“My ears, so red?”
Feng Chaoge subconsciously reached out and touched it.
A light laugh came from Su Shi beside her.
Feng Chaoge reacted and said coldly, “Are you making fun of me?”
“I wouldn’t dare.”
Su Shi shook his head, slightly amused in his heart.
This empress seemed to have a cold demeanor, but in reality, she was hiding her nervousness.
Although she was thoughtful and scheming, it seemed that she really did not have much ~contact with men.
It is clear that she is very deep, but sometimes she seems innocent.
“What do we do now?”
Su Shi asked, “Proceed to drinking?”
Feng Chaoge shook her head, “I don’t want to drink today.”
Although it felt good to get drunk, she was still used to keeping herself awake.
And she also wanted to confirm one thing.
Was it the effect of the immortal drink that she slept so soundly last night, or was Su Shi’s embrace really magical?
“Alright, then go to sleep.”
Su Shi got up and stretched his back.
After practicing swordplay all day, he was indeed a little tired.
At this moment, he suddenly thought of something and looked at Feng Chaoge vigilantly, “By the way, are you in the state of an empress now, or in the state of a gentle girl?”
Feng Chaoge was puzzled, “What is a gentle girl?”
Su Shi explained, “Is your current cultivation level sealed or not?”
This woman in front of him was supreme power.
Although there is no malicious intent, an unintentional action may be too much for him to bear.
It was better to be cautious.
“Now that you said this.”
Feng Chaoge raised her slender finger and pressed it against her brow.
A dazzling light flashed, and the fierce pressure tightened.
Not so cold and lonely, more bright and beautiful.
Feng Chaoge had a serious face, “Okay, I’m a gentle girl now.”
Su Shi couldn’t help nodding his head, “I prefer you in this state.”
This gave the impression that she was not so cold and became more gentle and sweet.
Feng Chaoge snorted coldly, “Do I care whether you prefer it or not?”
She stood up, her luxurious phoenix robe dangling to the ground, and turned to walk towards her bedroom.
While her back was turned to Su Shi, the corners of her mouth curved upwards into a vaguely untraceable smile.
On the bed.
Feng Chaoge curled up in Su Shi’s arms, wriggling comfortably, “I’m finally sure.”
Su Shi curiously asked, “Sure of what?”
Feng Chaoge said softly, “I like being held by you.”
Su Shi almost choked on his saliva.
It was obvious that she was still speaking harshly just now, this change in face was too fast, right?
Feng Chaoge’s pretty face flushed slightly.
She didn’t want to admit it.
But no matter what, Su Shi really had some kind of magic power.
Just lying in his arms, as if she was immersed in a warm spiritual spring, her pores opened, her body and mind stretched, and her soul relaxed completely.
The man’s scent and heartbeat made her feel at ease.
All loneliness was completely gone at this moment.
She was no longer the empress sitting on the cold throne, but had truly become “Feng Chaoge” herself.
Su Shi was just about to speak when his mouth was covered by a slender jade hand.
Feng Chaoge’s eyes drooped slightly as she muttered, “I’m a bit sleepy, you’re not allowed to speak.”
Su Shi fell silent.
After a while.
Feng Chaoge shivered and her face instantly turned red, opening her eyes to stare at him in embarrassment and anger.
As if ready to bite him at any moment.
Su Shi slowly pulled his hand out of her phoenix robe and said awkwardly: ”My hand slipped, my hand slipped.”
Feng Chaoge gritted his teeth and said, “No talking and no moving!”
Su Shi frowned and said, “Do I have no human rights here?”
“No, I am a tyrant!”
Over the next few days, Su Shi was basically in two places, the Chen Residence and the Imperial Palace.
However, what puzzled Su Shi was that Chen Wangchuan seemed to be avoiding him these days, staying at the Demon Extermination Division Office every day and running away when he saw him from afar.
“It seems that I am too poor in enlightenment and not favored by Patriarch Chen.”
Su Shi was a little embarrassed.
Since he couldn’t see Chen Wangchuan, he practiced his sword with Chen Qingluan.
During the day, he practiced eye-to-eye swordplay with Imperial Censor Chen, and at night, he went to the palace to warm up the bed for the Holy Empress.
The daily life of a Duke was very simple yet fulfilling.
Chu Yin’s case had also basically been settled.
Under the trial of three divisions, namely the Demon Extermination Division, the Metropolitan Procuratorate and Da Li Temple, Chu Yin’s defenses completely collapsed!
It was said that he had confessed completely.
However, there was no news from the outside world about what had been confessed.
The ministers who used to be in coalition with the former Prince were in a state of panic.
The capital was silent.
But everyone knew that this was just the calm before the storm.
Who could see into the mind of the phoenix-robed empress?
After Su Shi and Feng Chaoge had breakfast, the palace maids took out the remaining dishes.
Su Shi asked, “Are you sure?”
Feng Chaoge nodded and said, “Chu Yin must die.”
With the sins Chu Yin had committed, he should have been beheaded long ago.
She only held back because she thought of her promise to the late emperor all these years.
But the other side took forgiveness as consent.
There was absolutely no tolerance when it came to a war between two races and endangering the entire human race.
Su Shi asked, “What about the other members of the Prince’s House?”
Feng Chaoge said indifferently, “Not a single one will be left behind.”
We must eliminate all evil.
Everyone from the Gao family is innocent? The people in Huangyuan City are all innocent?
Since they had enjoyed the glory and wealth brought by power, they should naturally bear the corresponding responsibility.
Su Shi did not say anything.
Chu Yin’s sins were too serious to be ended by a single human life.
At this moment, the female official walked in, holding a jade box in her hand, inside of which was a set of neatly folded clothes.
“Your Majesty, Sir Duke’s official clothes are ready.”
Su Shi smiled and wondered, “My official clothes?”
Feng Chaoge said, “Since you are the Duke, you naturally need an official clothes. It should have been given to you long ago, but I guess you won’t wear it.”
Su Shi scratched his head.
After all, he was the Shengzi of the Demonic path.
Wearing the official clothes of the Empire was indeed a bit strange.
“That is why I have a new one for you.”
Feng Chaoge retrieved an outfit from the jade box, and the moment she opened it Su Shi froze.
The robe in front of him was silvery white, with what looked like faint starlight in the sunlight, and had nine five-clawed positive pythons embroidered on the chest and back, and the edges of the robe were inlaid with pieces of golden brocade.
It was very noble and luxurious.
“It is woven with spiritual silk, which is resistant to swords, water and fire.”
“The python pattern on it will only appear when infused with spiritual power, usually it just looks like ordinary clothing.”
“This way, it should be easier for you to accept it, right?”
Su Shi reached out to take it.
It was cold in his hand, with a smooth texture and a faint fragrance.
Although Feng Chaoge did not say so, Su Shi knew that she must have put a lot of thought into this outfit.
Given that he usually enjoyed wearing white clothes, she had even changed the purple official uniform to silver and white.
Su Shi raised his head and asked, “Can I change clothes now?”
Feng Chaoge’s eyes swept a trace of excitement, but his mouth was light, “You can change if you want, why do you have to ask me for permission?”
Su Shi reached out and tried to take off his shirt.
Feng Chaoge exclaimed to stop, turned to look at the female official, coldly said, ”What, you also want to see?”
Only then did the female official regain her senses and said frantically, “I dare not.”
She hurriedly bowed and retreated.
She even wisely closed the door.
Only the two of them were left in the room.
Feng Chaoge looked at Su Shi, her cheeks slightly pink, she nodded and said, “It’s time to start.”
Su Shi: “……”
