There was a man kneeling outside the LongQian palace.
The servants and other palace workers dared not to even tremble and knelt on the ground.
Amongst them, the one in the front was Duke Dou, the Chief of Internal Affairs, a great man who was with the emperor. From LongQian palace to Jingyuan palace, all the people who were involved were kneeling on the ground under the pressure of the guards.
The guards were encircling them while holding their long silver spears in their hands. It was a frightening scene as if the emperor was going to stab them anytime.
The Commander of the Guards, Lord Lin, came forward and said, “Your Magesty, the people of HuanYue palace had taken her.”
Lin Yi stealthily glanced at the dumpling sleeping in his Majesty’s arms. Her small hands were tightly holding on to his Majesty’s arms.
Lord LinYi said: “The palace workers had taken her, but the imperial concubine…”
The man who had casually held the child said, “Take the concubine away. She hurt the emperor’s heir. Deprive her of her position, demote her to a commoner, and send her to accompany the Empress Dowager.”
When he was a teenager, he hurt his vocal cords due to a fire. His voice was hoarse and rough to listen to. With his heavy and indistinguishable voice, the atmosphere was heavy without any reason.
LinYi was shocked and looked up. What’s the matter with that little kid? He had no idea what’s going on. How did the emperor change this kid into the emperor’s heir just after she came out of the palace in those small clothes???
Wei Jue looked at the small hand holding his lapel and said in a light tone: “My princess, what’s the matter?”
Lord Lin quickly shook his head and said to himself it was OK. The emperor’s eyes were so frightening that he wouldn’t doubt the emperor even if he died! Can ordinary people refute the emperor’s decision? He was afraid that he wouldn’t even have a chance to be reborn!
Lord Lin asked how to deal with the palace workers?
When the emperor looked at him coolly, it dawned on him and his heart chilled. The palace workers also seemed to have realized something. They kowtowed desperately and begged for mercy. According to the emperor’s cold-blooded style of killing people without blinking an eye, they were doomed!
Their cries for mercy was constantly heard. Some people hit their heads hard injuring themselves for a chance to save their own lives. It was better to be beaten or expelled from the palace than to lose one’s life!
Wei Jue was feeling a little impatient and frowned. Just as he was about to ask Lin Yi to take these people down(aka kill them). The little dumpling in his arms started to move.
The little dumpling opened her eyes in a daze, and her little head subconsciously rubbed against her father’s familiar arms “Daddy… ” She muttered subconsciously.
The man reached out and gently caressed her fluffy head. “Woke up?”
Daddy’s voice was very similar to that of the bad guys on TV like the sound of metal tearing against each other but it still sounded like the serene sound of nature to the little dumpling. When she was caught and bullied by the bad people, she only had one thought in her mind and that she had to ask dad to help Yinyin bully them back.
At this moment, hearing her father’s voice, the little dumpling was fully awake. Her pair of beautiful big round eyes suddenly turned red and big drops of tears came streaming down. Her small face was wrinkled into a ball, and she was extremely aggrieved.
It was like seeing a safe haven in the bitter forest of sufferings.The little dumpling was nestled in the man’s arms and cried loudly. Then the hall quietened down, only the little dumpling’s sobs and complaints were heard.
“Wuwuwu Father, bad aunt bullied Yinyin… “
Young dumpling didn’t speak well, but she cried bitterly. She said that this bad aunt bullied her and that her feet hurt.
She was punished by Duan Fei to stand for an hour. She didn’t give her food or water. Till the end, the girl locked in the black dark house didn’t cry or beg for mercy. She firmly believed that her father would come to save her.
But now that she saw her father and he was holding her in his arms. The little dumpling was very upset. She was very sad. The little milky voice with a nasal tone, half sobbing said: “Daddy they bullied YinYin. “
“Beautiful bad aunt punished Yinyin and made me stand. She didn’t give Yinyin food or water to drink. She was very bad. She also put a lot of delicious food in front of YinYin, but she didn’t let Yinyin eat the food!”
Yinyin was very afraid. This world was too strange for the three-year-old girl who hadn’t seen the world. When she was helpless and angry, she said that she would call the police uncle to catch them. Adults can’t bully children!
But Uncle system told her that there was no police uncle in this world, and this world was different.
The little dumpling tightly grasped her father’s arm, and her little face brushed on it like a little puppy. “And the palace lady sister also bullied Yinyin!”
The little dumpling said while lifting her sleeves and showing her chubby arms. Wei Jue saw several blue and purple marks on her small white arm. Because the little dumpling was white and tender like a lotus root, those blue and purple marks appeared even more shocking.
Wei Jue stared at the scars for a long time. His eyes were deep and dark, and the dumpling didn’t know what he was thinking.
The little girl sat in the arms of the tall man, and told him. When she finished, she realized that her father was her big backer and her mood was gradually stablized. Only the occasional hiccups and sobbing were left.
She wiped the tears off her little face and wiped it clean carefully in her father’s arms. The little dumpling was very satisfied: “Yinyin knew that Daddy would come to save Yinyin.”
Although the man didn’t respond, he didn’t throw out the chatterbox in his arms either even after the accusation and tears. This shocked the people in the palace.
Did the emperor ever had such a high tolerance?
Normally people can’t even touch the corners of his clothes, let alone play coquettishly in his arms, and rub tears and snot on his clothes, and to see that the most valuable Dragon Robe in the world was being dirtied by this audacious mess.
But the emperor let her do it. After a while, he suddenly said, “Lin Yi, haven’t you dealt with it yet?”
After saying that, the tall man got up and was about to walk away with the dumpling in his arms. Seeing that his old life was about to disappear, Duke Dou could not care less about his face.
Even though he had seen it before and yet he underestimated the importance of the child from outside the palace to the emperor.
He knelt on the ground and kowtowed, “Your Majesty! I was wrong.I’m wrong. I shouldn’t have arranged for Young Lady Yinyin to stay in Jingyuan palace, let alone ignore her. I allowed her to be taken away by Duan Fei. I know I was wrong. Your Majesty, please spare my life!”
He knew the cold heart of the emperor. However, Duke Dou, with his ingenuity and ability, had not made any mistakes around the emperor for so many years and this unconsciously began to take up his mind.
This time when the palace people came to ask for instructions, he could have avoided this disaster if he had asked the emperor on how to arrange it, he thought that he could arrange it himself and there would be no problems.
Lin looked at him coldly, He couldn’t help but say “Mr. Dou, as the saying goes, a dog is as good as his master(1). Although you are not the master, you still have some of the palace workers under you. When you were not there, they changed the hands to serve the princess. Jingyuan palace has been vacant for many years, and it has been desolate for a long time and only four people were sent there to serve. The little princess is only three years old, and you treat her like that?”
He looked at the four palace workers who were also kneeling by his side. They didn’t ask for mercy. They knelt numbly on the ground, but they were the old, the weak and the disabled
The servants were not even as good as that of Lady Qian Jin and what’s more the princess was brought to the palace by the emperor himself .
At this time, Duke Dou was full of regret. Looking at the four palace workers, he cried to the Emperor. He gritted his teeth and gave up his face. He said to himself, don’t cry” Young Lady(2) Yinyin, please spare my life, Young Lady Yinyin. This slave will repay you in the future like a horse and a cow(3)”
When the other palace workers saw that the chief was like this, they too followed suit. Just now they had seen it. The emperor clearly cared about the child in his arms. They guessed that she might be the emperor’s Dragon seed(4). He banged his head and shouted: “Please help little princess!!! I know I was wrong… “
The little dumpling crooked her head and pulled at the lapel of the man. She turned to look at the kowtowing elders and asked, “Daddy, are they calling me?”
Wei Jue looked at those big clear and bright eyes, blinking, and looking up at him with her small head. There were blue and purple marks on her small face that he didn’t know where she got from. But those eyes were naive and confused. Without asking, he knew what the child was thinking.
“Children shouldnt worry about these things.” said Jue.
But Yinyin was a polite child. She grabbed her father’s clothes and didn’t let him go. “Daddy, they cried for help from Yinyin.”
The young dumpling didn’t know the twists and turns of the cunning people, let alone the anger of men. She was a good child who couldn’t bear to see other people cry in front of her, so she came down from her father’s arms and ran with her small short legs.
Her pair of big watery eyes after crying looked at people curiously, and the soft milky voice seemed to comfort people softly asked, “What’s the matter with you?”
The little dumpling took out a white brocade handkerchief from her arms and handed it to the palace man nearby. It happened to be Mr. Dou, who was crying recently. He shook his hands and took the handkerchief. His eyes hardly dared to look into the little princess’s big clear and innocent eyes.
YinYin after passing the handkerchief gently said: “Quickly wipe the wound, you are bleeding, Oh, does it hurts?”
The little dumpling had hurt her forehead while fighting before. She knew how painful it was. She even spoke in a much smaller voice, as if it could comfort people when the voice was low, which could make the wound painless.
Mr. Dou was holding a white handkerchief. It was given to her by the palace maid when she was dressing up the little dumpling. It was clean and unused. It seemed as if it still had the sweet milk fragrance of the little dumpling. He dared not use it or hold it hard. His heart was burning.
Previously, he didn’t care about the child brought by the emperor from outside the palace. She was dirty and thin, like a little beggar. Even if the Emperor himself held her back then, the Emperor wouldn’t bother about such a child later. According to the emperor’s usual style and temperament, he thought she was not important and did not pay attention to them later. Even the person who arranges food, clothing, shelter and other services were casual but now the child was standing in front of him and wiping his face with a clean brocade handkerchief. Saying ‘Don’t cry’.
Duke Dou cried even louder. He was guilty! The little princess was only three years old. And that woman Duan Fei was a stupid, poisonous and crazy woman. She couldn’t possibly leave the three-year-old child. He heard that she punished this child by making her standing for an hour, hungry and thirsty and she pinched the child ruthlessly. At last, when the child couldn’t take it anymore and fainted, she was shut down in the dark wood room. Duke Dou had his heart trembling, shaking and his liver painful. He couldn’t even regret it.
The little dumpling stared at the strange looking uncle. He cried harder even though she was comforting him. She helplessly wrinkled her small brow, trying to comfort,him in her small milky voice, sounding light and soft: “YinYin’s body is also in pain but she did not cry, Uncle Dou is so big, don’t cry!”
Duke Dou’s eyes were misty with tears, and his heart was melting. He wanted to confess to the three-year-old dumpling and ask for her forgiveness. His eyes were firmly locked in front of him. Then he felt the familiar cold breath. Duke Dou trembled and knelt down again quickly.
His old face was full of respect and excellently hidden love, he said: “I am not hurt, I am not hurt, Princess please go back quickly, the emperor is waiting for you.”
Just as Yinyin was about to say something, a pair of big hands lifted her up from behind. The man said in an unhappy voice, “Lin Yi, beat these people up and throw them out of the palace!”
Then he left with the little ball.
However, the palace workers behind them seemed to be granted amnesty. They kowtowed to thank the emperor in a hurry. “Thank you for your grace, little princess, little princess…”
Nobody knew what transpired there but everybody knew that they have to be respectdul to the three-year-old princess and they knew that if they were not what awaits them would only be death.
In the past, palace workers were be dragged out and killed even if they accidentally broke the emperor’s tea bowl, not to mention that they nearly lost the little princess and she was hurt.
If the emperor didn’t care about the little princess picked up from outside the palace, that would have been okay but the emperor clearly held her in high regard, and the little princess was hurt, so the palace people kowtows more sincerely.
Lin Yi looks at the back of the emperor. YinYin was not annoyed that she was in the hands of the emperor this time. She thought that the emperor was playing around with her. She used her feet to wriggle around like a small fish in the mid air. She asked him to put her down. She hasn’t finished talking with Uncle Dou, so she can’t just leave. It was impolite!
Lin Yi smiled unconsciously. He thought that it was okay to have such a lovely baby. When he returned to the mansion, he would discuss having one with his wife?
He was staring at the back of the emperor along with his subordinates standing beside him.
