The sedan chair finally reached the entrance of the imperial tower.
The tower was twenty feet high, it was a gift from the late emperor to one of his favorite concubines, but after he passed, this tower was left as a gesture of romance where her husband would spend time with many of his concubines, she included.
Shao Yin landed her hand onto Lu Yi’s outstretched palm, steadying herself as she left the sedan chair and entered the tower.
“Your Majesty.” She greeted the handsome man seated on the stage.
The emperor’s name was Luo XuanMo and he’s twenty-four this year.
He was tall and handsome, and seemingly gracious as he sipped onto his drink on the stage.
“My Queen has arrived.” He lifted his head and smiled gently at her, “Come, to my side.”
Shao Yin released Lu Yi’s hand before moving towards Luo XuanMo and sitting down beside him.
Lu Yi proceeded to fill up her cup with fresh warm tea, before serving it to Shao Yin.
“Leave.” Luo XuanMo waved his hand dismissively at Lu Yi after she finished.
“Yes, Your Majesty.” Keeping her eyes low, Lu Yi bowed down respectfully before taking her leave.
Surprisingly, right after that, he frowned at the remaining servants around them, “You’re all dismissed, I wish to drink peacefully with my wife.
Do not ruin my mood.”
Shao Yin raised her brows at him in amusement, before indicating to Lu Yi and the others to leave them be.
“Your Majesty, what brings you to enjoy tea at such a weird time?”
Luo XuanMo glanced at his Queen, she always had a gentle expression on her face, and her eyes were bright with intelligence.
“I’ve been busy with work ever since I ascended the throne.
There hasn’t been a moment of peace for me in these past two years…”
Shao Yin giggled softly, “It seems that Your Majesty misses the past.”
“Very much so.” He nodded, “Being a mere prince was relaxing, much more so than being pushed to this position…” He sighed modestly.
Shao Yin took a sip from her cup, her expressions unchanging.
Hmph, what an actor.
Years ago, he gave his everything to marry her, the eldest daughter of the General and the favorite niece of the Prime Minister, in order to gain enough supporters to overthrow the previous crown prince and destroy the third prince, leaving himself with no other rivals.
Now, he’s saying that he’s regretting it all because of the workload?
What a filthy actor.
“For the sake of our people, Your Majesty must try your best!” Her words were gentle and her expressions were tender.
Her role was to be a kind and considerate queen, after all.
Luo XuanMo reached out for her hand, but before he could reach her, as if suddenly thinking of something unpleasant, his expressions darkened quickly, “Hmph!”
“Your Majesty?” Shao Yin asked worriedly.
He pursed his lips tightly together before moving towards the edge of the stage with his hands folded behind his back while staring down at the green scenery.
His huge and tired figure looked exhausted, as if the burden of an emperor was slowly weighing him down.
Shao Yin had no idea what had gone over him, but since the emperor is no longer seated, it would be inappropriate for her to stay seated.
She stood up and walked slowly to his side.
“What is the matter, Your Majesty?” She asked worriedly.
He glanced over the wide scenery before pointing at a specific building on the horizon, “Those old things!” He said impatiently, “They’re looking down on me because I just recently ascended the throne and that I have no real power! They’re not even taking me seriously!” His words were full of spite, and the hands behind his back were clenched into tight fists.
“Do not worry, Your Majesty, they’ll surely be convinced of your hard work soon!” She comforted him gently.
“I wish I could weaken the nobles’ power and authority!” His expressions were grim and dark, “But I have no idea how!”
Suddenly, he whirled towards her, as if suddenly thinking of a suitable idea, “What if you convince father-in-law to give up his Army’s Mark1 at tomorrow’s morning court session, to set an example for the rest of the nobles? What does YinYin2 thinks?”
Shao Yin stared at him in shock, before turning her head up towards the sky, “Your Majesty, the sky is still bright.” She said gently as she pointed at the clear bright sky.
Translation: Wake up, stop dreaming.
Luo XuanMo gaped at her in surprise.
His wife had always been gentle and considerate, and she had always given him what he wanted, but today…
Even her system was surprised at the change
