Chapter 21:  皇上来冷宫了

The Emperor Comes to the Cold Palace

“You’re running so fast! It’s just the number one spot on the beauty man ranking list, why can’t you say it?!” Lu Yunluo did not understand.

Forget it, anyway wait until she got out of the palace, she didn’t believe that she couldn’t inquire about it.

She reached out and grabbed the parcel that Eunuch Cheng had brought back for her yesterday from inside her space.

Inside, all that was contained was sulfur, an essential ingredient for making gunpowder.

With it, plus the charcoal she hadn’t used up in winter and the saltpeter from the back of the mountain, she already had all the main ingredients for making gunpowder.

Next, she would have to study how to use the tools she now had at hand to make gunpowder successfully.

Inside the Hall of the Nurturing Heart (Yang Xin Hall), white smoke curled upward from a purple incense burner.

Cao Zhong Quan trembling with fear as he presented the lotus wine that had been sent from the imperial kitchen.

He thought that the Emperor was going to have another fit of rage, who knew that after drinking it, unexpectedly the emperor had unprecedentedly not slammed the wine pot.

He also didn’t know if it was just an illusion on his part, he surprisingly saw that the Emperor, who had always been indifferent, seemed to be in an extremely good mood and hooked the corners of his mouth.

Cao Zhong Quan was so shocked that his body trembled.
Your Majesty, this….is he smiling?

He is thinking of rubbing his eyes to make sure he is not hallucinating.
Ji Wu Jue held his wine cup and asked, “Have you found out who she is?”

Cao Zhong Quan then remembered that he hadn’t had the time to report this matter, so he straightened up and said, “Your Majesty, the guards who went with her last night reported that ‘Xiao Lu Zi’ had gone in the direction of the Cold Palace, and after entering the Cold Palace, she never came out again.”

“Cold Palace?” Silent Wu Jue’s eyes flickered slightly.

No wonder he had searched the entire back palace (imperial harem) but did not find her, so she was actually living in the Cold Palace.

If he remembered correctly, the entire Cold Palace did not seem to be inhabited by anyone other than Taizi Fei that he had married legally before ascending to the throne.

Come to speak of it, so she was Lu Yunluo, the first daughter of Lu Ding Yuan?

This first daughter of Prime Minister Lu was said to be well educated, quiet, gentle, refined and dignified.

No matter what, he could not, in any way, associate such a woman with the bold and presumptuous woman he had known? 

She had aroused his curiosity.

It seemed that tonight, he would have to make a trip to the Cold Palace. 

The silver moon was like a disk, the stars shone, and the night breeze brushed .

Yin Shuang had just finished the work at hand and was about to go to the back yard to speak to Her Niang Niang about a handsome and imposing man who came into the courtyard, followed by an eunuch behind him.

She had seen this eunuch a few times before, at the time when she was walking around the back palace, so he was Cao Zhong Quan, the famous and favorite eunuch in charge of the Emperor’s side.

There would be no one else in this imperial harem other than the Emperor who could have Eunuch Cao serving alongside him!

Especially the man in front of her, with his intimidating expression in his eyes, just swept her casually yet she couldn’t help but feel the urge to kneel down.

He is the Emperor!

His Majesty is coming to the Cold Palace!

Her mouth dropped open in shock at this realization, and in her daze, she even forgot to salute.

The backyard,

Lu Yunluo, who hadn’t noticed the commotion in the front yard, was lying comfortably, wearing a clean and comfortable slip dress, in the hammock in the backyard, half-squinting her eyes as she swayed leisurely in the hammock.

On the stone table beside, she put a jug of grape wine that had already been drunk more than half. 

She had made this grape wine from grapes grown in the space, and when she was in the space today she suddenly smelt its mellow and rich wine aroma, so she brought a jug out to try it.

The taste was mellow and sweet, obviously it had only been put in the space for a month, but it was comparable to 20 to 30 years of red wine, and the taste seemed to be a bit different from the red wines she used to drink, it tasted good anyway.

Unconsciously he had drunk more than half of it.
