After Zhong Li Xi returned to Feng Ning Palace, she found that Su Mo Li did not come back, so she went out to look for her and found a confused-looking Su Mo Li in front of the Cold Palace.
The moment she saw Zhong Li Xi, Su Mo Li’s eyes lit up and she quickly walked over, “Princess!”
Zhong Li Xi breathed a sigh of relief and said, “Why did you come here? Didn’t I tell you to wait for me?”
Cheng Tao said: “Princess, it’s my fault, I can’t remember the way ……”
“Huh?” Zhong Li Xi was stunned, “You’re lost, aren’t you?”
Su Mo Li bit her lips, her little face flushed red.
Zhong Li Xi couldn’t help but laugh, “Then don’t go anywhere! Okay, wait until tomorrow, I’ll take you for a good stroll around the Palace, and make sure you won’t get lost again.”
With that, she took Su Mo Li’s hand and they went back to Feng Ning Palace together.
After paying respects to the Empress, they returned to their respective rooms.
After making the bed, Cheng Tao looked at Su Mo Li, who was sitting at the side, and walked over, “Miss, what are you thinking about?”
Su Mo Li held her jaw with one hand and said softly, “Nothing, has the news about the Second Prince come?”
“Well, Huang Fan has sent word that the Second Prince likes bright and beautiful women, like peony flowers.
He especially dislikes weak women.”
Su Mo Li’s eyes brightened: “Good, it seems that there is another layer of protection for the withdrawal of marriage.”
“But Miss, if you don’t marry the Second Prince, who are you going to marry?” Cheng Tao wondered.
“Why do I have to get married?” Su Mo Li asked rhetorically, “Why don’t I just raise a few more fine faced men?”
Cheng Tao thought about it and nodded: “Miss is right, if you get married, you have to teach your children, and with your temperament, you won’t be able to.
But before that, Miss still has to take good care of her body.”
Su Mo Li laughed: “Don’t worry, I know my body, I’m sure by now the people outside already know that I’m going to marry the Second Prince, and I don’t know if it’s to Li Qianshi’s liking.
Okay, go to sleep.”
Looking at Su Mo Li’s back, Cheng Tao was a little distressed.
Outside, it was indeed noisy.
Not to mention other things, let’s say in the Su family, Old Madam Su also felt that this was a good home.
“The Second Prince, Zhong Li Ling, is also a talented man, who is calm and steady, and there is no concubine in the house.” Li Qianshi said with a smile.
Su Chen nodded: “Indeed, this is the truth, moreover, the Second Prince is very popular among the ministers, perhaps ……”
Su Chen didn’t finish the rest of the sentence, but everyone present understood.
Old Madam Su’s face, which was still smiling, suddenly changed: “If it fails, won’t Li’er also have to ……
No, no, no, no!” Old Madam Su even shook her head, her face a little pale.
“Mother, don’t worry.” Li Qianshi said, “If it really fails, let Li’er and the Second Prince separate, and then Li’er will still be the girl of our Prime Minister’s Residence.”
Old Madam Su was relieved to hear this.
The family chatted for a while before they each left.
Su Jia Xuan, who got the news, sneered: “Grandmother was deceived. When the Second Prince has failed, what awaits Big Sister will only be death.”
Dong Xue looked to Su Jia Xuan in confusion: “But Third Miss, as long as the Old Madam is here, she will protect the Eldest Miss.”
Su Jia Xuan shook her head with a heavy face: “If something happens to the Su family and Big Sister together, only by giving up Big Sister can we get peace for the Su family, who do you think Grandmother will choose?”
Dong Xue was silent.
Su Jia Xuan continued, “Grandmother does like Big Sister very much, but she likes the Su family more, otherwise, she wouldn’t have chosen to conceal it back then.”
“Conceal what?” Dong Xue was confused.
Su Jia Xuan closed her mouth and shook her head: “It’s late, go to sleep.”
Dong Xue always felt a little strange about her own Miss but did not think much of it. She only thought that she was worried about her eldest sister.
In the Second Prince’s residence, Zhong Li Ling’s heart was extremely unpleasant, and listening to his men’s report, his brows furrowed deeper and deeper.
“You mean, that Su’s Eldest Daughter is a sick child? The whole person is very weak? Can be blown away by the wind?”
Hearing Zhong Li Ling’s voice getting heavier and heavier, the head of his men lowered more and more: “Yes, Second Prince.”
“That’s the news we gathered.”
Zhong Li Ling fiercely gripped the pen in his hand.
With a crack, the pen broke.
The people below shuddered and almost knelt on the ground.
Zhong Li Ling took a deep breath and his face was filled with gloom: “Is Su Mo Li in the Palace now?”
“Good, very good.” Zhong Li Ling sneered, “In order to be able to marry into the Imperial Family, using everything, what Baek Chuan Taoist, I’m afraid that she has also been bribed!
All right, you go down.”
Zhong Li Ling sat alone in the study and said in a low voice only after a long time: “I have seen many people who want to climb the dragon and phoenix. Want to plot against me? Absolutely not!”
On the following day, after Zhong Li Ling finished his morning court, everyone came over toward Zhong Li Ling to congratulate him.
Su Chen also came over: “In the future, my little daughter will need the care of the Second Prince.”
Zhong Li Ling’s face turned pale and said faintly, “Prime Minister Su’s words are premature.”
With that, he flung his long sleeves and left.
The crowd was stunned, what was this situation?
Su Chen was also very downhearted.
“Prime Minister Su is indeed speaking too early.” Zhong Li Shi slowly walked over, and everybody offered their respects.
Zhong Li Shi waved his hand, with an indifferent smile on his face, and a pair of peach blossom eyes swept a glance at Su Chen: “Prime Minister Su, Miss Su is not the type Zhong Li Rang likes, I’m afraid this marriage is not that easy.
Chancellor Su, why don’t you change your daughter?”
Su Chen’s mouth twitched, “The Crown Prince is joking, it’s all the Emperor’s will, how could I dare to change anyone?”
“Well, you’re right.” Zhong Li Shi smiled, “Everyone take your leave.”
Su Chen’s hand clenched fiercely, obviously extremely uncomfortable in his heart.
This matter had naturally reached Su Mo Li’s ears.
Su Mo Li laughed, “Isn’t that just right? I have no intention of marrying as a concubine.”
“But Miss, the Emperor ordered the marriage, it’s not that easy.” Cheng Tao was a little worried.
Su Mo Li took a sip of tea: “Things are in the air.”
So, Su Mo Li took the initiative to attack.
As for Zhong Li Xi, she was punished by the Empress to write a lot of letters.
When she arrived at the Royal Garden, she really saw Zhong Li Ling.
“The looks …… can only be considered average.” Cheng Tao couldn’t help but say, “It’s normal for Miss to look down on him.”
Su Mo Li felt it was funny, this girl followed her and her eyes have become higher.
“Greeting the Second Prince.” Su Mo Li walked over, bowing her body as her soft voice sounded.
Zhong Li Ling’s eyebrows furrowed, taking two steps back: “Miss Su?”
Su Mo Li raised her head, and her stunningly beautiful face caused Zhong Li Ling to be stunned for a moment.
But soon, the stunning eyes were replaced by disgust.
Su Mo Li was dressed in white today, like a small white lotus, grasping a handkerchief and said tenderly, “I heard that the Second Prince will go to the Empress’s Palace every day, so Li’er came over to wait for the Second Prince.”
“Miss Su, but what is the matter?” Zhong Li Ling’s hand hanging in the sleeve was tightly squeezed into a fist.
Such a weak and shy look, thought he would pity?
Su Mo Li covered her mouth and coughed twice, seeing Zhong Li Ling indifferent, an aggrieved look appeared on her face: “The Second Prince doesn’t like Li’er?”
“Miss Su is overthinking.” Zhong Li Ling’s voice was a little colder, it was all fake, she thought that a few coughs would soften his heart? What a joke!
Su Mo Li’s eyes were red and tears fell: “Second Prince, Li’er will soon be your concubine, you ……”
“What’s all this crying and wailing about?” Zhong Li Ling scolded.
Su Mo Li’s front teeth bit her lips tightly and she slightly turned her head away, revealing her nice neck.
If it were anyone else, I’m afraid I wouldn’t have been able to resist taking care of that weak look.
But Zhong Li Ling, what he hates most is this kind of weak woman!
“Miss, the Second Prince has left ……” whispered Cheng Tao.
Su Mo Li blinked her eyes. She looked at Zhong Li Ling’s back and wiped away her tears, curling her lips and smiling brightly: “Okay, mission accomplished, let’s go to the Empress Dowager’s place and scrounge up some dinner.”
In the corner, Zhong Li Shi came out, his eyes full of amusement.
Xiao Guozi couldn’t help but say, “Is …… Miss Su acting on purpose?”
“A bit interesting.” Zhong Li Shi raised his eyebrows, “It seems that this Miss Su is also a smart person.”
Xiao Guozi’s face was full of question marks, indicating that he didn’t understand.
“Let’s go, let’s go to the Feng Ning Palace and scrounge up a meal.”
