My Beloved Concubine Only Wants to Eat Melons - Chapter 115
The Queen Mother knew that Zhang Shengkang would never just write that letter to her.
Since he mentioned Imperial Physician Xun, it is very likely that this person really wrote a letter to Imperial Physician Xun.
But looking back on what she had seen in recent days, she didn’t find anything unusual about Imperial Physician Xun.
To be on the safe side, she immediately sent someone to investigate, only to find out that Zhang Shengkang had sent a letter to the prison warden before his execution, and the imperial prison handed it over to Jin Yiwei.
How could the queen mother not know that Jin Yiwei is the emperor’s man, but if he finds anything, he will report it to the emperor as soon as possible.
And just now she saw the emperor’s reaction to the Taoist priest with her own eyes, and now she heard him say this to herself, she understood that Jin Yiwei probably didn’t give the letter to Xun Taiyi, but to the emperor.
The emperor already knew.
— This is a child raised by herself, and she still knows something about it.
He answered her like this at this time, probably just because he didn’t want to face it.
But now, things have come to this point, there is no other choice.
So the queen mother said again, “The matter is of great importance. Even if His Majesty does not believe what the demon said today, it has already entered the ears of others. This matter will not wait until tomorrow.”
After the words fell, Yu Wenlan paused for a moment, and then he had no choice but to say, “Let’s go back to the palace and talk about it.”
The queen mother nodded when she heard the words, and finally boarded the carriage.
Yu Wenlan followed closely behind, and the mother and son’s car drove towards Ci’an Palace one after the other.
When the news of Yaodao’s arrest came, Yan Shu finally breathed a sigh of relief.
However, at the same time, there are still some things I can’t figure out in my heart.
——With the ability of that monster, he can escape from Minyue, why did he come to the capital to deliberately provoke him?
Aren’t you afraid of being caught and beheaded?
Or is this demon way actually trying to play black under the lights? Do you think the most dangerous place is the safest?
But the system jumped out and said, [Thinking too much, he actually just wants to rebel and do everything that is not good for the royal family. Even if he was about to die, he had to do his best to disturb Chao Gang, so that the emperor could not sleep peacefully. It’s best to make a big one out of trouble and shake the country. 】
Yan Shu, [hehe. ]
This Taoist dog who has done all kinds of bad things has great ambitions, but is he honest now?
But having said that, after all, this old demon is full of tricks, so he can’t escape from the dungeon again, can he?
But the system said again, 【That’s impossible, the emperor ordered someone to cut off his tendons and tongue just now, so no matter what, it’s impossible to find the flowers. 】
Yan Shu breathed a sigh of relief, [That’s okay. ]
But having said that, since they have broken their tendons, why did they cut off that monster’s tongue?
System, [Because the emperor said that this old demon is bewitching the public with his evil words. 】
Hearing this, Yan Shu couldn’t help but become curious again, and hurriedly said, 【Why are you bewitching everyone with such evil words? Could it be that this old demon has become some kind of demon again? 】
But he heard the system say, 【The old demon just told the emperor that the first emperor was killed by people in the palace, not him. 】
Hearing this, Yanshu sneered, [Just kidding! Who in the palace would dare to kill the late emperor? 】
But listening to the system smacking his lips, 【emmm…】
Yan Shu was stunned, and suddenly felt that something was wrong, 【…What does this ellipsis mean? …Could it be that the people in the palace did it? 】
System, [Yes. 】
Yan Shu’s eyes widened, 【Then who did that? Who would be so brave? ! 】
System, [Who else in the palace do you think can be so brave? 】
Yan Shu was taken aback.
…Could it be her big boss?
After all, besides the boss, she really can’t think of anyone else.
But the system said, 【The answer is correct again. 】
Yan Shu, [what? ? ? 】
After going all the way in the cold wind, the mother and son had returned to the palace at this time.
Sending away the others and closing the palace door, the Empress Dowager sighed, and finally said, “The Ai family knows that His Majesty may have heard the news about the late emperor’s death. Instead of letting others tell you, you might as well ask the Ai family to tell you.”
Yu Wenlan said, “Actually, the queen mother doesn’t need to say…”
However, before the words were finished, the Queen Mother shook her head and said, “No, the Ai family never thought of hiding this matter. Now that it has already started, let’s just say it. It will take a long time, and the Ai family may not be able to hide it.” It will be better.”
Yu Wenlan was silent for a moment when she heard the words, she could only nod her head and said, “Mother, please tell me.”
The Empress Dowager straightened her thoughts and said, “Back then, the late Emperor was deceived by this white crane monster, and he wanted to pursue the way of immortality, which was not good for people’s livelihood. It’s not that the Ai family and the ministers in the court did not persuade, but it was useless. The first emperor didn’t care about the country, the country, and it was fine, the Ai family carried it for him, but until one day, the demon Taoist persuaded the first emperor to use the Zihe chariot to make alchemy, and he actually complied.”
“How can there be so many Zihe chariots in this world? What’s more, there is a huge demand for alchemy, and the demon way used the most vicious method. During that time, there were pregnant women near the capital who had miscarriages every day, and those were all human lives.” , is the life of the people!”
At this point, the queen mother was already excited, her eyes couldn’t help but tears flashed and she said, “But the first emperor turned a deaf ear to him. Not only did he let it go, but he also deliberately indulged him. He didn’t ask Jin Yiwei to investigate. He was clearly an accomplice of the demon way , is simply pretending to be a king!”
“The Ai family is also a mother. She has lost her own flesh and blood. She understands the pain of those pregnant women. The Ai family is the queen of Daliang. How can she just watch this happen and leave it alone? But how can the Ai family persuade her? The emperor was not moved, but the Ai family still wanted to protect his reputation, and they couldn’t let the courtiers and common people know about it, so as to shake the Yuwen family’s power.”
At this point, the Queen Mother closed her eyes, took a deep breath, looked at Yu Wenlan again and said, “Fortunately, His Majesty has grown up, and His Majesty has a sense of responsibility as a king, has a benevolent heart, and is worthy of great responsibility, so The Ai family took action, using his death in exchange for the safety of the common people. Up to now, the only regret of the Ai family is that they let this demon way go away and killed so many people over the years.”
After the words fell, Yu Wenlan hurriedly said, “No, I don’t blame the queen mother for this matter. The queen mother has done her best, and you have done nothing wrong.”
The Empress Dowager shook her head and said, “Your Majesty needn’t be like this. Ever since Ai’s family did this, they knew that this day would come. Ai’s family had no intention of concealing and getting rid of the crime. They just wanted to wait for the situation to be stable before explaining the truth to His Majesty.”
But Yu Wenlan shook her head again and said, “No, he deserved his death, and you are not guilty.”
—He is the king that the people rely on, and now he is also a father, and he is about to welcome his own child.
No matter what his status was, he couldn’t stand someone killing such an innocent little life.
So even if he heard the truth from the Queen Mother at this time, his decision would not be shaken in the slightest.
So he said again, “A prince’s crime is the same as that of the common people. What’s more, the first emperor was a ruler. Using the imperial power to do evil is an even worse crime. So this is not the mother’s fault at all.”
The voice fell, but the Queen Mother looked at him and said, “Your Majesty can treat the Ai family like this, and the Ai family did not support you in vain.”
As he spoke, he sighed, “But back then… the Ai family thought about raising the child of the King of Liaodong.”
Yu Wenlan hurriedly said again, “No, even at that time, the queen mother did nothing wrong. After all, I was not honest enough and made the queen mother worry.”
After all, those misunderstandings were not caused by the late emperor and that monster?
Forget it, he could only say, “Don’t mention the past.”
The queen mother nodded again, “Okay, don’t mention it. Everything is fine now, especially now that His Majesty can see the opportunities every now and then, which makes the Ai family very gratified.”
However, immediately afterwards, she changed her voice and said, “But this is a crime of killing the king after all. When the demon said it today, everyone around him heard it.”
Yu Wenlan hurriedly said again, “They won’t talk nonsense, if the queen mother is worried, I can…”
“It doesn’t have to be.”
The queen mother hurriedly waved her hands and said, “They are loyal to His Majesty, why bother to kill innocent people for the sake of mourning their families? In that case, others will feel chilling towards His Majesty, Your Majesty must always remember the lesson of the late emperor.”
As he spoke, he sighed again, “People are mortal, and Aijia has lived enough.”
However, before Yu Wenlan could say it, there was a creaking sound, and the palace door was pushed open from the outside, and Yan Shu stepped in from the outside, still shouting, “No, don’t!”
But in a short while, he has hurriedly arrived in front of the two of them.
This is called the empress dowager’s meal, and Yu Wenlan also looked surprised.
However, before the two of them could ask anything, they saw that she was already kneeling in front of her with tears, crying, “Your Majesty, please don’t blame the Queen Mother. This is what the late emperor deserved. The Queen Mother is just doing harm to the people! The Queen Mother is not just for the people of the world. , It’s also for you, otherwise the late emperor would continue to be bewitched by that demon way, and he would have done something to destroy his conscience, and it’s even very possible that the throne wouldn’t even be yours…”
As soon as the words came out, the Empress Dowager said in surprise, “You Concubine Yi, how did you know about this?”
Yu Wenlan wanted to open his mouth to speak, but before he could speak, Yan Shu cried to him again, “Your Majesty had a hard time in the past, you can’t be so cruel to Your Majesty! Although Your Majesty is not the biological mother of His Majesty, But after so many years of upbringing, it is already a blessing from God to help His Majesty to the throne! Your Majesty, do you know why you only heard the news that the late Emperor was critically ill when you returned to the capital after fighting in the Northwest? That is because The empress dowager wants to ensure that you return to the capital and succeed to the throne smoothly, and there will be no more troubles! It can be said that every step of the empress dowager is for you and for the sake of the world. How can you treat your empress like this now…”
Seeing her crying with tears streaming down her face, she was very sad, the empress dowager couldn’t care less about doubts for a moment, she just hurriedly ordered the emperor to say, “Quickly, don’t make Concubine Yi cry, she can’t stand this!”
As he spoke, he quickly reached out and hugged her into his arms and coaxed, “Good boy, Aijia knows that you are loyal all because of Aijia. Your Majesty is also very kind to Aijia, don’t be sad anymore…”
Only then did Yu Wenlan have a chance to interject, and sighed, “I don’t want to blame the queen mother, you don’t have to cry.”
Yan Shu didn’t believe it, she leaned on the Queen Mother’s arms and looked at him with teary eyes, “But this concubine just heard with her own ears that the Queen Mother said that she has lived enough.”
As soon as these words came out, Yu Wenlan paused and could only look at the Queen Mother.
Seeing that the Queen Mother was also startled, she sighed again, “Even if Your Majesty doesn’t blame, the Ai family has really lived enough. In this life, the Ai family has already tasted everything that should be tasted…”
Unexpectedly, Yan Shu shook her head in a hurry and cried, “You haven’t tasted sweetness yet, all you have tasted in the past was bitterness!”
— Betrayed by her husband, lost her own flesh and blood, and used her own strength to support the country and the country for that absurd husband, but the late emperor was still so inhuman that he kept dragging his feet and destroying it…
Later, with the person I love, I can’t be together, I can only look at Mr. Qi from a distance, and I don’t even dare to say a word…
What kind of **** life is this, her boss is really too bitter!
Of course, although Yan Shu was sad and angry, she hadn’t completely lost her mind, so she just cursed in her heart and didn’t say it out yet.
But Yu Wenlan listened to everything.
With this situation, at this moment, his heart was also filled with unprecedented bitterness.
Yes, although he became the emperor, he did not experience any happiness for the mother who raised him.
The queen mother probably didn’t want the fine clothes and food in this palace, so she decided to confess to him, even at the risk of death…
Swallowing all the difficulties silently, he couldn’t help but say with red eyes, “It’s my fault. In the past so many years, I didn’t put myself in my mother’s shoes. But, I grew up with my mother. If you don’t If I leave, am I not an orphan?”
After the words fell, the Queen Mother couldn’t help but her eyes were red, and she sighed, and said again, “But no matter what, this is a crime of regicide after all. It is always a hidden danger to keep Ai’s family in the palace. How about it, if Your Majesty I can’t bear to tell Ai’s family to end, why not send Ai’s family to guard the mausoleum, or go to Yuzhen Palace to practice.”
Yu Wenlan paused, then shook her head immediately.
However, before she could say anything, she heard Yan Shu cry again, “Your Majesty is so young, why do you punish yourself like this? What are you doing guarding those tombs? Then Yuzhen Palace is a place you can go? Even if you are tired of Once you are in this palace, you should live a good life for yourself!”
While talking, tears were streaming down her face again, which made the queen mother feel distressed, so she hurriedly took out her handkerchief and wiped her tears herself.
However, at this moment, Yu Wenlan said, “I think Qi Shuguang is a good man, why don’t I send my mother to him and ask him to accompany her.”
As soon as these words came out, both the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law were stunned.
The queen mother looked at him in surprise for a while, and then said, “What did your majesty say?”
Yan Shu also completely forgot to cry, she almost forgot to blink her tearful eyes, she said in surprise, 【…God, he, he, he knows? ! 】
