Zhan Qingchen silently observed Su Shi, with a bright glint in her eyes.
Originally, when she learned that he had become the son-in-law of the king of Saxin Kingdom, her heart was full of sadness and sourness, but with the warm embrace just now, everything had melted away.
“This bad guy, actually hugged me in front of Qingluan, and was seen by Patriarch Chen ……”
“This is so embarrassing!”
Although she was embarrassed in her heart, her slender hands continued to hug Su Shi refusing to let go.
Common sense told her that the two should keep their distance now.
But, how could one use common sense to measure something like feelings?
Su Shi’s eyebrows shot up wildly.
The soft flesh around his waist twisted again.
Not to be outdone, his other hand crept to the slender waist under her green dress.
Chen Qingluan’s body stiffened and a sweet red color instantly stained her pretty face.
In a flustered tone, she sent out, “Stop it, Qingchen is still here!”
Su Shi coldly snorted, “Who told you to be dishonest in the first place?”
“I, I was wrong, okay?”
A large hand curled around her waist and a numbing sensation came.
Chen Qingluan seemed to be drunk, her cheeks were rolling and her head was dizzy.
“Hmph, it’s already too late.”
Su Shi held Zhan Qingchen with one hand, while the other hand wrapped around Chen Qingluan’s slender waist.
Both of them were too embarrassed to look up, and they didn’t notice each other’s strange appearance.
The atmosphere was quiet for a moment.
Zhan Qingchen spoke, “Shengzi Su, did the Holy Empress tell you about my master’s visit to the Imperial Capital?”
Su Shi nodded, “She had said it.”
Zhan Qingchen looked at him, “Then what do you think? Do you want to go to the Land of Great Clouds with me?”
This was what she had come for.
Only if Su Shi paid his respects to Tian Ji Pavilion could the two be together openly and honestly.
Seeing that expectant look, Su Shi could not bear to refuse and nodded, “Then let’s go on a trip.”
Zhan Qingchen’s expression jumped, “That’s great!”
Su Shi smiled.
It was just a trip to the Land of Great Clouds after all, and he probably didn’t really need to revere Sikong Lanyue as his master.
After all, that Daoist nun was famous for her aversion to men.
At that moment, the servant entered, “Sir Duke, there is a guest looking for you.”
He only saw Wei Jinzhong, who was wearing a sun fancy dress, following behind him.
Eunuch Wei nodded his head in greeting, “Sir Duke.”
Without waiting for the other party to explain the purpose of his visit, Su Shi already had an idea in his mind, “Her Majesty is looking for me?”
Eunuch Wei smiled and said, “That’s right.”
Su Shi stood up, “Let’s go.”
It should be because of Chen Wangchuan’s request to grant marriage.
However, Eunuch Wei did not rush to leave, but turned his gaze towards Zhan Qingchen, “Chief Zhan should also join us, Her Majesty calls for an audience.”
“Holy Empress wants to see me?”
Zhan Qingchen was a little confused.
Su Shi also froze for a moment.
Why did the Holy Empress suddenly want to see her?
She had just arrived at the imperial capital, so this was a bit too soon.
The two of them walked out of the Chen Residence and boarded a golden palanquin.
“Get the palanquin up.”
With a shout from Eunuch Wei, the luxurious golden palanquin rose smoothly into the air.
“Eunuch Wei, this doesn’t seem to be the way to the palace, does it?”
Eunuch Wei said, “Her Majesty did not summon you two at the palace.”
Su Shi was confused, “Then where do we go?”
Eunuch Wei smiled and said, “Drill Ground.”
Drill Ground Eight Square.
Tens of thousands of Xuanjia troops fought on the field.
This was not only a place for military parades, but soldiers would also train here during normal times.
On the high platform, the golden palanquin slowly came to a stop.
Eunuch Wei’s voice sounded, “Duke Su, Chief Zhan, we have arrived.”
The two people stepped out of the palanquin.
Looking at the scene in front of them, they couldn’t help but be slightly stunned.
The empress wore a satin-embroidered phoenix robe with colorful clouds and the sun and moon, wearing a crown of twelve brigades of jade beads, with the light of the sun and moon all around, exuding a brilliant pressure that shone in all directions.
She sat on the phoenix seat, not surrounded by anyone.
“Greetings, Your Majesty.”
Zhan Qingchen bowed and saluted.
Feng Chaoge watched the exercise below, as if she hadn’t heard it.
Under the pressure of the Supreme Being, Zhan Qingchen’s body stiffened and seemed to lose the ability to move.
At that moment, Su Shi cleared his throat, “Your Majesty, Chief Zhan greets you.”
Feng Chaoge glanced at her, “I heard it.”
The aura disappeared at that voice.
Only then did Zhan Qingchen breathe a sigh of relief, her daoist robes had been drenched in cold sweat at some point.
Although her Master was also a Supreme Being. However, the majesty of the other party, who had been on the imperial throne for a long time and ruled over a vast continent, still made her heart and soul tremble slightly.
Feng Chaoge said indifferently, “Chief Zhan did not cultivate well in the Land of Great Clouds, what is the reason you came to Weiyang Capital?”
Zhan Qingchen hesitated for a moment, but said honestly: “I want to ask Sir Duke to go to the Land of Great Clouds.”
Feng Chaoge nodded and said, “Your master has already talked to me about this. As long as Sir Duke is willing, I have no problem with it.”
Zhan Qingchen’s eyes lit up, “Thank you very much, Your Majesty.”
“There is no need to thank me in a hurry.”
“There is a message I want you to convey to Sikong Lanyue.”
Feng Chaoge’s expression was clear and cold, “Su Shi is one of my people, not a tool in your game of right and evil!”
Zhan Qingchen shook his head, “Your Majesty is too worried, Master has no ill will towards Sir Duke.”
“She’d better be.”
“If Sikong Lanyue really wants to take him as a disciple, then give him a good teaching.”
“If not ……”
Feng Chaoge raised her delicate chin, “See the poem written there?”
Zhan Qingchen turned her head to look, only to see a few lines of big words written with silver hooks and iron strokes on the field.
Her eyes staggered slightly.
A cold and cool voice rang in her ears.
“If you dare to have a wicked idea.”
“I will let you understand what it means to have a black cloud looming over the city and wanting to be destroyed!”
The Xuanjia army below is in full swing!
The bloody murderous aura rising from the sky caused Zhan Qingchen to shiver and a chill to rise from the bottom of her heart.
The air is so deadly!
Feng Chaoge’s eyes were indifferent, “Eunuch Wei, send our guest away.”
Eunuch Wei walked over, “Chief Zhan, please.”
Zhan Qingchen turned her head to look at Su Shi.
Su Shi nodded, “It’s fine, you can go back first.”
Only then did Zhan Qingchen get into the palaquin.
The golden palanquin left, leaving only Su Shi and Feng Chaoge on the high stage.
Su Shi frowned and said, “What are you scaring her for?”
Feng Chaoge snorted coldly, “What, are you upset?”
Su Shi said helplessly, “You know that Chief Zhan has no ill will toward me.”
“I know that.”
“But you, after all, you are a member of the Demonic path, and the Land of Great Clouds is the land of the Righteous path, I’m just a little worried….”
Feng Chaoge’s eyes lowered.
A smile swept across the bottom of Su Shi’s eyes, “So Your Majesty dressed so formally and deliberately arranged to meet at the Drill Ground just to help me establish my authority?”
Feng Chaoge turned her head away, “No, I happen to be here to supervise the soldiers.”
Su Shi walked over and sat beside her.
The two of them jostled on the wide phoenix seat.
“Why are you sitting so close?”
Feng Chaoge was somehow a little nervous.
Su Shi lifted the hem of her skirt with one finger and said with a smile, “Looks like Your Majesty is still wearing stockings?”
“Let me go, let me go!”
