Chapter 547 – Banquet Commotion Part 2

    Chapter 547 - Banquet Commotion Part 2

    "His Majesty has arrived! The Empress has arrived!"

    A sharp voice was heard. The crowd then saw a couple with a dragon robe and phoenix dress walked forth escorted by a crowd of eunuchs and palace maids.

    "Haha! It seems that everyone is here!" The Emperor laughed before brushed away his sleeve and sat down. His gaze then stopped slightly when he glanced at Mu Ru Yue and Mo Xi.

    "This two are..."

    "Imperial father," Yi Shao Chen cupped his fist with a smile before he continued, "This is Lady Mu, Mu Ru Yue, who is my close friend while the youth is her brother, Mo Xi."

    The Emperor's gaze became serious as he meticulously sized Mu Ru Yue up, but didn't say anything.

    Mu Ru Yue's gaze landed on the two men standing behind the Emperor while he was sizing her up. She felt that something was wrong with those two even though they were doing their best to withdraw their grandeur.

    Shao Yi Chen mentioned that people of the Ouyang family were coming. Could those two be from the Ouyang family? It seemed that they didn't want others to know their identity so they stayed in the dark...

    "Your Majesty," The Empress made a glance at Mu Ru Yue before she shifted her head to the Emperor and said with smiles, "I believe that Chen Er is no longer young. Although he had a couple of concubines before, they all unknowingly died from illness. Since he still does not have a later generation, how about bethothing concubines to him?"

    The Emperor laughed and agreed, "Empress, you can make the decision."

    "I believe that Lady Mu is a good candidate. How about bethothing her to Chen Er as his concubine?" The Empress eye-signaled to Liu Yu to control herself when she saw that Liu Yu wanted to rebuke.

    Liu Yu could only keep quet, but anger was expressed on her face.

    Mu Ru Yue's expression gradually turned grim and her eyes was boundlessly glacial. All of the girls at the banquet looked at her with enviousness and jealousy.

    King Chen was the son of the Empress. His status was that noble. It was already out of their status to be his concubine. Who knew that woman was that lucky to enter the Empress's eyes.

    "Imperial mother," Shao Yi Chen's expression turned serious before reverting back to his gentle smile facade, but the coldness in his eyes was naked to sight. "I am afraid that your son is not able to abide your request."

    The Empress was stunned as she thought that he must have fancied Mu Ru Yue to bring her to the banquet. But it didn't seem to be that way from his response...

    "Imperial mother, your son is not in that kind of relationship with Lady Mu. If you want your son to have a later generation, it will suffice if you were to betroth two beautiful concubines to me."Shao Yi Chen smiled and continued with a voice as gentle as jade, "Your son will definitely let Imperial mother carry her grandchild shortly after."

    His gaze was cold and distant when he faced the Empress.

    He was actually given birth by Imperial Consort Min although he was said to be the son of the Empress. But Imperial Consort Min died from difficult labour. His Imperial father then gave him to the Empress to be nurtured by her.

    Therefore, he didn't have any mother and son feelings toward the Empress.

    He similarly couldn't develop a pleasant feeling toward Liu Yu that the Empress likes.

    Liu Yu's expression changed and had a pale complexion on her delicate face.

    There was a difference in the Empress bethrothing concubines to him and his own will. His words were like a sharp sword that had mercilessly pierced her heart, making her feel a pain that made her forehead to be covered in cold sweat. Her gaze was sorrowful and resentful.

    "Alright." The Empress regained her composure and continued with elegance and poise, "I will send two beautiful concubines to your manor shortly. You can start making your arrangements."

    "Thank you, Imperial mother!"

    Yi Shao Chen smirked as he swept a glance at Liu Yu's pale face.
