Qing Fang Mountain.
The sky gradually became darker, and night enveloped the bamboo forest.
The terraced sea of bamboo rustled under the night breeze.
A figure in a white robe stepped into the air, breaking the silent night.
Su Shi stepped on a bamboo tip, “This should be the right place.”
Just now the sect’s spirit jade fluctuated, which meant there was a disciple from the Netherworld Rakshasa Sect in the vicinity.
This place was close to the Capital.
People from the Demonic path didn’t dare to set foot in it easily.
Since the other party had taken the initiative to release their aura, it was obvious that they wanted to see him for urgent matters.
A lazy voice sounded in his ears.
Su Shi turned to look, only to see a woman standing behind him at some point.
Her cheeks were pale, her eyes deep, her clothes casual and unadorned, yet she exuded an aura of spontaneity and transcendence
Su Shi froze for a moment, “How are you?”
She was the main target of the imperial court, but now she had blatantly come to the imperial capital.
Yu Jiao Long said, “Her Majesty asked me to come and look for you–”
In the middle of her words, she suddenly paused for a moment.
Her nose twitched, as if she smelled something.
Quickly walking to Su Shi’s side, she climbed onto his neck and sniffed, her pale cheeks slightly flushed. Seeing Yu Jiao Long’s drunken appearance, Su Shi was puzzled, “East Saint, what are you doing?”
Why are you acting like a vampire?
Yu Jiao Long regained her senses and asked rhetorically, “Did you just drink?”
Su Shi nodded, “I drank quite a lot.”
“So that’s it. No wonder.”
Yu Jiao Long’s eyes were envious, as if she was very jealous of him.
Su Shi glanced towards the other party.
Yu Jiao Long had always been a wine drinker, but now her hands were empty.
Her face was very pale, and she didn’t look like a slightly drunk person.
He realised something, “You, can’t drink anymore?”
Yu Jiao Long sighed, “I was ordered to protect you during the trip to Huangyuan City, but you almost had an accident… so I was punished not to drink for half a year.”
“I see, so that’s what happened.”
Su Shi understood.
No wonder the other party acted so strangely.
It turned out to be a withdrawal reaction.
Yu Jiao Long was addicted to alcohol, so punishing her by not being allowed to drink for half a year was better than killing her.
Su Shi flicked his wrist.
A jug of wine appeared in his hand, it was the Immortal Wine that Hua Manlou had given him.
“Why don’t you drink it first to quench your thirst? Her Majesty will not know.”
Yu Jiao Long’s eyes looked straight at the wine jug and swallowed hard.
The expression struggled for a long time before finally averting her gaze with difficulty.
“No, there is nothing to hide from Her Majesty.”
“If she finds out, I won’t be able to drink for the rest of my life.”
Yu Jiao Long lowered her head anxiously.
Although she had killed Gao Fan and stopped the demon embryo herself, she still failed to protect Su Shi.
It was only fitting that she be punished.
Su Shi put away the wine jug and asked, “So what made you come to see me?”
Jade Jiao Long was very concise and said, “Her Majesty misses you and asks you to return to the sect as soon as possible.”
Su Shi scratched his head.
“Miss me? Sure you’re not trying to get me killed?”
Before going to the Northern Border, he had agreed not to look for the little fox, but he had instead fallen asleep in Green Hill Plains.
After recovering, he also did not immediately return to the sect, but came to the imperial capital to become a major official.
Thinking of that cruel and jealous Demon Empress ……
Su Shi couldn’t help but shiver.
This was going to be very serious!
But then again.
As the Chief Disciple of the sect, he had indeed spent too much time outside.
After thinking about it, Su Shi said, “It’s late now, why don’t we go tomorrow morning?”
Yu Jiao Long nodded, “My identity is sensitive, so I can’t enter Weiyang Capital. I will wait for you here at the same time tomorrow.”
After they both agreed, Su Shi turned around and prepared to leave.
Yu Jiao Long called out to him, “Can you give me that jug of wine?”
Su Shi said curiously, “Didn’t you say you didn’t want to drink it?”
Yu Jiao Long shrugged, “It’s good to smell it.”
Su Shi shook his head helplessly.
This wine addict!
With a casual wave of his hand, the altar of wines on the ground piled up like a mountain, and the rich fragrance of wine filled the night.
“Come on, you smell them all at once.”
Yu Jiao Long’s eyes became wide-eyed.
So many immortal drinks?!
Feng Chaoge sat on the chair, her eyes unfocussed, not knowing what she was thinking.
At that moment, the room door was pushed open and Su Shi walked in.
Feng Chaoge was still sitting there, as if she had not noticed.
Su Shi sat beside her in silence.
The atmosphere was quiet, and all that could be heard was the sound of candles burning.
After a long time, Feng Chaoge said, “Is she here to bring you back?”
Su Shi nodded, “She will leave tomorrow at midnight.”
He was not surprised by this.
Inside and outside this imperial capital, what could be hidden from the Holy Empress’ eyes?
Most likely Feng Chaoge had already received the news when Yu Jiao Long had just set foot in the Central Plains.
Feng Chaoge was silent for a long time before she suddenly asked, “Do you know why I asked you to become the Imperial Censor?”
Su Shi nodded, “Supposedly to suppress the officials?
“That is only one of the reasons.”
“You had said when you were drinking at the Hua Residence that you have an empty title and no real position.”
“Now I give you the most powerful position in real power.”
“Maybe so ……”
Feng Chaoge looked at him, “And you are willing to stay?”
Looking into those deep eyes, Su Shi shook his head, “Even if I am willing to stay, it is not because of any official position.”
Feng Chaoge looked slightly stagnant and said lightly, “You mean Chen Qingluan, right?”
The two of them were kissing out on the street, and this was seen by many people.
Of course, it also reached her ears.
Su Shi scratched his head and didn’t say anything.
Feng Chaoge’s heart inexplicably felt uneasy.
She got up suddenly and said coldly, “I am tired and want to rest alone today.”
Su Shi was about to speak when his expression suddenly froze.
Between the swaying of her phoenix robe, one could vaguely see the black tulle wrapped around her ankles.
Her skin was crystal clear like jade beneath the thin, cicada-like silk.
Su Shi’s throat was slightly dry, “You’re really wearing it?”
Holy Empress had really worn those stockings!
“I can wear whatever I want, do I need to report to you?”
“Why are you still standing there? Hurry up and go find your Imperial Censor Chen.”
Feng Chaoge turned her back on him, her voice not wavering in the slightest.
“Cough cough, What else am I here for?”
Su Shi cleared his throat and said seriously, “Since I agreed to serve you in bed, I naturally have to stand until my working hours are over.”
He got up and walked towards the bedroom.
“Come on, let’s sleep!”
A trace of shame swept under Feng Chaoge’s eyes, and her heart was secretly broken, “I can’t believe I’ve acted so silly!”
In the bedroom.
The atmosphere was quiet.
Half a column of incense later, Feng Chaoge’s cheeks were slightly red and she gritted her teeth, “If you dare to mess around again, I will cut off your finger!”
“I’m just checking how the quality of this thing is.”
Su Shi smiled and released his hand, the silk bounced back and there was a loud “pop” sound.
Feng Chaoge’s body trembled and her jade cheeks turned redder.
Su Shi hated it in his heart.
This fabric is really strange, it can’t be torn!
