ruity and floral aromas different from ordinary tea soup, and she asked curiously: “Why is this tea water like this?”

Mu Tingyun said: “Your Majesty doesn't like tea soup, so she soaked tea leaves, flowers, and fruits together, and added some sugar.”

Luo Qionghua took a sip, only felt that the lips and teeth were fragrant, sweet, and delicious, without any smell, and couldn't help sighing: “Your Majesty can do everything.”

Mu Tingyun thought for a while and said for a long time: “Because it is Your Majesty.”

When she was a child, she didn't look anything special; just a thin and weak child, maybe it looked a little weird at that time; for example, she likes to look at an open space, likes to talk to herself, likes to say something you don't understand; is this the so-called domineering air?

Luo Qionghua stared at Mu Tingyun, enviously saying for a while: “The relationship between the Princess and Her Majesty must be very, very good.”

Mu Tingyun said: “It's not bad.”

Luo Qionghua moved closer to her, and whispered: “Will the princess become a queen in the future?”

The attendant quickly came over with a handkerchief and wiped off the tea, Mu Tingyun coughed for a while, finally calmed down, pulled Luo Qionghua, and asked: “Why do you have such an idea?”

Luo Qionghua said: “Everyone says that.

Mu Tingyun said: “Then what else are you talking about?”

Luo Qionghua thought for a while: “I also said that because there is nothing left to be rewarded to the Regent, the reward had to give to you.”

Mu Tingyun looked helpless, was about to speak, and the servants came to report that the regent had returned.

Mu Tingyun rushed to the hall to meet the regent, but saw Luo Qionghua following her, asking with sparkling eyes: “Can I come together?”

Looking at the little child, Mu Tingyun felt some long-lost feelings in her heart.

The feeling of wanting to get close to people; she couldn't help thinking that when Her Majesty was a child, she always looked at her expectantly, usually asking—‘Sister Yunping, how do you pronounce this word.’ Later, Her Majesty was not so cute.
Seeing this year, it is quite different.

If Mu Tingyun wanted to talk about the difference, she probably felt that Her Majesty was not as sincere as before.
Of course, this might be because of Fu Ling Xian’s presence, but even if she was alone, she was serious.
The thoughtful look in her eyes made Mu Tingyun a little sad.

Even, what she said seemed to be playing charades.

In the only chance to be alone in the palace at that time, Her Majesty told her to get in touch with the family members more, hold more banquets, and then be more arrogant and indulgent towards her.
Mu Tingyun still doesn't know why.

She just did it.

In contrast, Ah Hua is still very sincere and energetic.

Mu Tingyun nodded and said: “Okay, you can come with me.”

Luo Qionghua was very happy, took Mu Tingyun's lead and followed them in the front hall, saw the regent sitting on her seat with her eyes closed, and heard footsteps.
She didn't open her eyes, just said: “Your Majesty also brought you a gift, saying that she apologized for not being able to come to see you due to busy government affairs.”

Mu Tingyun was dissatisfied when she heard the words: “What is this; I am so sorry for her gift?”

Luo Qionghua was taken aback for a moment and looked at Mu Tingyun with some doubt.

Fu Lingxian opened her eyes, frowned, and said: “Tingyun, you are presumptuous…”

Seeing Luo Qionghua, probably because she didn't want to teach Mu Tingyun a lesson in front of outsiders, Fu Lingxian was silent for a moment, and then said: “Shut up.
Don't be so arrogant in front of Her Majesty.”

Mu Tingyun snorted coldly, and said, “I don't care.”

After that, she didn't take the gift, and turned to leave—but she didn't move.

Luo Qionghua grabbed the hem of her clothes and said weakly: “I…I want to see.”

Mu Tingyun: “…”

Luo Qionghua mustered up her courage: “I want to see what Her Majesty gave you.”

After saying a word, the stagnant air in the room couldn't help but disperse, Fu Lingxian smiled and said: “She wants to see it; you can take it back and show it to her.”

Mu Tingyun was also helpless, but the play still needs to be done to the end, so she said angrily: “Okay, let's go back to the room and show it to you.”

Luo Qionghua nodded like a chicken pecking at rice, but she was still a little strange in her heart.

Judging from the conversation in the water pavilion just now, Princess Yunping doesn't seem to be such an arrogant person who would not even give Her Majesty face.

Although the other party didn't speak too strongly, it was obvious that she was very close to Her Majesty.

Luo Qionghua followed Mu Tingyun step by step and soon arrived at a room.
Mu Tingyun signaled the attendant with her eyes to put the gift and put it on the table.
When the attendant left, she asked the attendant to wait outside; picked up the box and opened it.

Inside is a jade bracelet with a bright color, like a handful of spring water, scooped up from a pond.

Mu Tingyun couldn't help laughing, and after laughing, she remembered that Luo Qionghua was still there, coughed dryly, and said, “Here, that's it.”

Luo Qionghua still stared at her, and after a while suddenly bit her lips and said: “Is it a bad thing?”

Mu Tingyun was taken aback, and Luo Qionghua said again: “The princess's arrogance; is she pretending?”

Mu Tingyun's heart skipped a beat, and she blurted out: “Is it that obvious?”

After finishing speaking she consciously made a slip of the tongue, frowned slightly, and Luo Qionghua said: “It's not obvious, but the Princess didn't cover up in front of me.
Before, the Princess was very close to Her Majesty.
How could she be angry with Your Majesty this time because of such a thing?”


She grabbed Mu Tingyun's sleeve, and said: “So I don't hide it from the Princess, am I right? If it's right, I'll make sure that nothing bad will happen next time.”

Mu Tingyun pursed her lips, nodded for a while, and then “shh” again.

She lowered her voice and said, “How could I blame Her Majesty for not being able to leave the palace…”

It would be strange if Her Majesty left the palace just after going through the time of plots against her.

Thinking of this, she looked at the girl in front of her again.

The girl still had baby fat on her cheeks, showing a pink blood color.
She looked like a doll carved with jade, but unexpectedly, she was very smart.

Because of this, the two got closer, and Luo Qionghua even wanted to stay overnight, but unfortunately, Princess Ying was watching at the door and wanted to take her away, so she had no choice but to leave.

And that night Mu Tingyun looked at the gift list reported by the butler, and the more she looked at it, the more frightened she became.

Among them, jewelry, antiques, valuable utensils, and silk brocades are innumerable.
There are also a few of the most precious ones.
The housekeeper specially marked them out, and flattered him: “Even in the palace, there may not be any.”

Mu Tingyun remained silent; she gradually had some guesses in my heart.

In mid-August, the court decided the attack the food route of the Qi-Chu coalition army, causing the two armies to lose their logistics, their morale was in turmoil, and then their main force was broken.

The remnant soldiers fled to Hunan, but the king of Hunan refused to send troops and issued a letter of loyalty to the emperor.
The remnant soldiers were trapped in Qianjiang and were soon wiped out.
Bao Wei committed suicide, and the two kings of Qi and Chu were captured and taken to Wei Jing.

The rebellion, which seemed massive at the beginning, came to an end in four months.
Official Ying returned to the court.
Her Majesty greeted him with the highest standard of ceremonies on that day and hosted a banquet to reward the army and officials.


Duke Ying enjoyed himself and got drunk at the banquet, so emotionally he shed tears and said: “The minister is old, and it's time to disarm and return to the fields.”
