“Miss is bullying Cui Zhu,” Chi Zhu murmured as she sat down at the table.
“Miss is just teasing you!” Lü Tao couldn’t help laughing. How did she not realize how adorable and interesting Cui Zhu was! Even she wanted to tease her.
Lü Tao looked at her young miss. Her young miss had changed a lot since waking up from the coma. They were no longer allowed to kneel down before her, and they were asked to sit at the dining table together with her. She could still remember her young miss saying, “Although you are my maidservants, I hope that you will have a strong personality. Do you want to be a humble servant all your life? Or do you want to become someone successful? It’s your choice. But I don’t need people that only know how to wait upon me by my side.” These words made Lü Tao truly realize that the young miss was no longer the silly young miss who needed them to help her with everything. The young miss now was aspiring to become a powerhouse whom everyone would admire. If they wanted to stay by the young miss’s side, they had to keep up with her footsteps. Otherwise, they would only be getting farther and farther away from her, and she had decided to follow the young miss forever!
“After breakfast, let’s go for a walk outside.” Leng Ruoxue finished up her porridge. She had already spent a few days in this world, but she still hadn’t explored the outside!
In the imperial palace…
“Great General, please wait for a moment. I will go and inform His Majesty first,” a eunuch said respectfully as he led the way while bowing lowly. Even the emperor respected the great general.
Leng Qingtian nodded, but his face was expressionless, and no one could tell what was on his mind. He didn’t have the mood to appreciate the beauty of the imperial garden. He just wanted to settle the matter quickly and go back home to his precious granddaughter. The scenery of the imperial palace was beautiful, but it was not as meaningful as spending time with his Xue’er. Moreover, it wasn’t his first time here.
It wasn’t long before the eunuch came back to lead him to the emperor’s study.
“Your Majesty.” Leng Qingtian bowed slightly to show his respect.
“Ah, my dear general is back. It must have been a long journey.” Sitting on the dragon throne, Emperor Li Xun welcomed Leng Qingtian cordially.
“Your Majesty, the journey was fine, but my granddaughter is…” Leng Qingtian deliberately didn’t finish his sentence and made a very heartbroken and distressed face.
Seeing Leng Qingtian’s expression, the emperor couldn’t help cursing in his head. This cunning old fox! Yu’er really messed up this time. It seems like he won’t be able to escape from marrying his granddaughter anymore.
“Yes, my dear general?”
“Your Majesty, I hope you will uphold justice for my granddaughter.”
“My dear general, I have already punished Yu’er. But for the young lady of the Xu family… she’s not someone from the Eastern Lagoon Empire. Even if I want to punish her and vent anger for Ruoxue, there’s nothing I can do about it. You are a senior who has served since my father’s era, so I hope you will understand my difficulties. Of course, I have asked the Xu family to bring her back and teach her a lesson. I’m sure she won’t do it again! And the Xu family is willing to compensate for hurting Ruoxue. Please give the youths another chance, and don’t haggle over it with them!” The emperor eloquently tried to persuade Leng Qingtian. He didn’t want to offend the Xu family, but neither could he displease an important official of the Eastern Lagoon Empire. He relied heavily on Leng Qingtian, and the entire Eastern Lagoon Kingdom needed this God of War. He only hoped that Leng Qingtian would give him, the emperor, some face and not haggle too much over it.
“Rouxue was almost killed! I almost couldn’t see her again. Your Majesty, I don’t know how you are going to compensate us.” Leng Qingtian’s eyes narrowed with a sharp glare. He had long known that the emperor would say so, so he didn’t expect much and didn’t intend to go into it vehemently. Just like Xue’er said, they could wait for a better opportunity to seek vengeance in the future. There was no need to go to extremes now. Now was the time to ask for more practical benefits.
This cunning old fox wants to rob me! Emperor Li Xun wasn’t pleased, but he still put on a smile. As long as this old fox agreed to stop fussing over this incident, he was willing to pay some price. He could always find the Xu family to get it back. It was the Xu family’s young lady’s fault in the first place! So what if they were one of the Five Great Families? They shouldn’t have provoked this lunatic. Dragons had reverse scales, and so did this cunning old fox. No one should touch it.
“Don’t worry, my dear general. I will definitely make it up to Rouxue,” Li Xun said through his clenched teeth.
“Thank you, Your Majesty!” Leng Qingtian smiled as he took out a piece of paper from his storage ring. “Your Majesty, Xue’er was seriously injured, and in order for her to recover, we need these medicinal herbs… But we can’t really afford all of them…”
“Just take whatever you need from the imperial pharmacy,” Li Xun said generously. Some medicinal herbs weren’t an issue.
“Thank you, Your Majesty. Furthermore, here is a list of compensation we hope to get. Your Majesty and the Xu family can just compensate with what’s written here. I have no other presumptuous requests,” Leng Qingtian said understandingly as he handed the list to the eunuch.
The eunuch took the list and placed it on the emperor’s desk.
When Li Xun scanned through the list, his eyes immediately widened, and he almost choked. The eunuch quickly passed him a cup of water. After drinking the water, he was more composed. But the list still almost made him vomit blood in anger. There were only ten items on the list, but each was priceless. Even if there was a price, there was no market. Take the crystal honey for example. The price had already inflated to a thousand amethyst crystals per gram, but the amount on the list was five kilograms! It was ridiculous. Even with money, there was no place to buy it!
“Your Majesty, you can discuss the items on the list with the Xu family,” Leng Qingtian reminded, implying that the emperor didn’t need to compensate by himself.
Right! The Xu family! The emperor immediately returned to composure from his initial shock and felt much better. With them, at least it won’t be so bad.
“Your Majesty, I have another request!” Leng Qingtian continued.
“What else, my dear general?” The emperor’s voice was even shaking slightly. Didn’t he say there were no more presumptuous requests?
“Your Majesty, the seventh prince is talented and virtuous, and Ruoxue has always admired him. This time, she suffered an unexpected disaster because of the seventh prince. It’s really…”
