Sending the two children into the palace, Shao Xun followed Deng Fei and walked to Fu Fang Pavilion.
She ordered the palace staff to add soft cushions to the stone bench, and then she invited Fei Deng to sit down with her.
Deng watched for a long while on the wide and quiet Taiye Lake, and Shao Xun waited for her patiently.
The fishes under the water are not afraid of people at all. Hearing the movement and movement gathered under the pavilion, they were colorfully gathering and dispersing. Deng Fei's eyes were fixed on these fish that were attracted by the human voice. After a while, she turned her head and leaned on the lankan. , Smiled and looked at Shao Xun: "Is the noble concubine curious about your majesty's past?"
"Is this curiosity?" Shao Xun thought for a while: "I want to know what he was like before, what he liked, what he hated, and how is he?"
Deng Fei said: "What did he tell you?"
"It is said that his temperament was a bit awkward before, which is very different from what he looks now," Shao Xun blinked, "But I want to know more…"
"…He even told you this?" Deng Fei felt a little funny: "I will tell you that he will be mature and stable when he is born. Why, don't you feel disappointed?"
In the light of the setting sun, the pearl that Shao Xunfa was swaying from step by step was shining brightly, but Fei Deng felt that the eyes of this peerless beauty when she mentioned her lover were brighter than pearls.
"I just regret… he must have been heroic at the time, he was the best teenager, but I was born so late, and I didn't have time to see anything."
Deng could see that Shao Xun was telling the truth. She must feel that everything about the emperor was good. When he was mild, he was gurgling water, and when he was impatient, he was a warm fire. In short, the whole body is good, and he is the world. The most perfect man.
It's so good, her friendship is cherished by the right person, and she probably won't taste the taste of being let down.
I also have such a time when I love someone with all my heart, and when I look at him, I only feel that he is surrounded by an extremely beautiful light…
"…Your Majesty is telling the truth, but it has been beautified a lot. When he was a child, he was very rebellious, and even more so that no one looked at him. He felt that everyone except himself was a fool, and he was an arrogant person to see. I hate the child."
Shao Xun didn't expect this, and his eyes widened in surprise: "Really? But now…"
Fei Deng shook her head: "This is the beginning. Later, a seven or eight-year-old child experienced the life and death of war, and he also knew about the sufferings of the world, and understood that human life is the most precious and humble thing in the world-no matter this. Whether a person is stupid or wise, that arrogance will naturally dissipate."
Shao Xun couldn't help but sit forward: "Is he hurt?"
Fei Deng was amused by her reaction: "Little girl, how can anyone not be injured in the chaos of war?"
Shao Xun pressed her lips, Deng Fei looked at the still young girl with a soft and tolerant gaze: "Don't worry about him, those are all small injuries…"
Speaking of this, she changed her voice, don't mean it: "If there is any big scar on his body, would you not know?"
Shao Xun was stunned for a while before reacting. Just now, this gentle and elegant elder suddenly said something in front of her.
Shao Xun blushed from the slender neck to the side of his cheek: "Manny!"
Deng's indifferent and graceful expression disappeared completely, and she laughed so much that tears came out. It was not easy to stop until she saw Shao Xun that she was really annoyed. She smiled and said, "You kid, it's not good that you have such a thin skin , A Huan who is parrying… is your Majesty's mouth?"
Shao Xun couldn't help covering his hot cheeks with his hands, and bit his scalp to lie: "Your Majesty doesn't say such things."
"Really?" Deng Fei smiled rather vaguely: "You look like this… can he resist teasing you?"
Shao Xun could not speak. Deng Fei hadn't laughed like this for a long time. At this time, she felt that the stone in her throat that was pressing her to suffocate seemed to move a little bit, making her breathing smooth.
At this time, Shao Xun had a strange feeling. She actually felt that this person had an indescribable similarity to the emperor at some point, so similar that it was not like the emperor's sister-in-law, but more like his relatives. It made her hesitate for a moment when she looked at Fei Deng.
The older woman noticed it immediately, and she smiled and said, "What's the matter?"
Shao Xun hesitated a little, still said: "It may be my illusion, but…you must have a good relationship with your Majesty, right?"
Deng's eyes widened slightly: "When he was a child, he was brought to the camp by his father…that is, the Emperor Xian did not take care of the female family members. He did follow me for a while, but how did you know? Did your majesty say it?"
Shao Xun shook his head, but his eyes were already bent: "No, it's just…thank you for taking care of your Majesty…"
"You should thank me," Deng Fei smiled: "I don't know if you have heard the Empress Dowager complain, but your Majesty is indeed the most difficult child I have ever brought to serve. Not to mention being naughty and despising others, there are always strange things in my mind. The scary thing is that he is really smart, and these ideas can be implemented, and the people are frustrated.
I had a bad temper at the time. To tell you the truth, if A Ying hadn't told me to take care of his younger brother before leaving, I would have quit. "
"Ah Ying?" Shao Xun reacted. It should be said that the emperor's elder brother had compassion for the prince.
Zhao Ying, Zhao Huan.
It was indeed the name of his own brothers, and the Emperor Xian must have had great expectations for these two sons at the time.
This is Deng's husband. When she mentioned him, she took a look and slowly said: "Yes, it was the first prince Zhao Ying. He stayed with his father for a year, and then he was sent back to his mother."
Shao Xunwen had no scruples about the emperor's affairs, but when she mentioned pitying the prince, she was afraid to make Deng sad, so she didn't dare to say more.
Deng's expression seemed to be nostalgic, but it didn't seem to be: "He is different from your majesty, my dad or father, and is different from anyone in the army. He is weak and quiet. At that time, he was just a young boy. People think that the word'Pianpian's son' was born for him, he…very gentle…"
Shao Xun couldn't help saying: "Your Majesty is also very gentle now."
Deng was originally feeling the pain that she had taken for granted in her heart, but she was interrupted by Shao Xun's words. She recovered and looked at Shao Xun with a smile: "It's different, I don't know what your Majesty is before you. Looks like, but I'm pretty sure that the two brothers are really different. His gentleness is different from your majesty. He is a soft character with no edges and corners, and is as soft as warm water. He has a kind of natural compassion. See no one suffers.
I know that many people still say that he didn't stay because he was unable to endure the suffering of Dengpei. In fact, he has no way to adapt to the death and blood that others have become accustomed to. He seems to be able to empathize with the suffering of others, whether it is a friend. The enemy is still the enemy, and I saw him suffering from this, so that his unhealthy body plummeted…"
Shao Xun couldn't help but shudder, as if he could feel the painful gaze of the young man who was compassionate to everyone back then, "Really…is there really such a person?"
"If I didn't see it with my own eyes, I would definitely not believe it, but that's the truth." Fei Deng lowered her eyes: "However, it is such a distinctive personality that is attractive enough."
Shao Xun felt that the emperor was the most unique. He is now the best monarch and lover. Even though he was arrogant and rebellious, he must be the loveliest child.
Deng quickly cleared up her emotions, "Don't mention him, aren't we going to talk about your majesty? I will tell you how he became sensible then…"
Shao Xun chatted with Deng for a long time, and didn't stop until it was time for the key to the palace gate. After saying goodbye to her, he sent someone to escort her out of the palace before returning to the Ganlu Temple.
The emperor must have returned to the palace at this time, and Shao Xun entered the door and asked, "Where is your majesty?"
Yuhu greeted her and untied her coat. With a lower gesture, he pointed to the side chamber and said in a low voice: "The fifth princess cried for a long time, and her Majesty came back to coax her. Now she is about to sleep."
Shao Xun took a breath and immediately entered the room lightly. Seeing that the emperor was sitting next to the rocking bed and looking down at his daughter, when Shao Xun came in, he waved his hand and got up and took her out.
After sitting outside, he twisted Shao Xun's face: "I was so happy talking to my sister-in-law, even the child forgot?"
Shao Xun also felt a little embarrassed, "Unknowingly time passed…Ashu was asleep too?"
The emperor said: "Cheng Laogang accepted him as an apprentice, and wanted to get along for a while, so I left him in the western part of the Liangyi Hall, where Ashu is also there…what are you talking about so forgetting?"
Seeing that Shao Xun couldn't open the topic, he had to say slowly: "…nothing…just, just what happened before you…"
The emperor understood it as soon as he heard it, and stroking his forehead with a wry smile said: "It turns out that it is planning me. The Empress Dowager is better. How much can I take care of my face? Sister-in-law may have been resentful for a long time. I will vomit it soon, right?"
Shao Xun couldn't help laughing: "Did you also know that you offended someone in the first place?"
"At that time, she was young and ignorant. She was not the only one who offended her. The elder brothers who came from Jiangmen were very angry. Now thinking about it, it is really…" The emperor shook his head and smiled.
"But didn't they all become life-and-death friends?" Shao Xun went to put his arms around his neck: "Your experience is really wonderful, just like what is sung in the drama-'Bing let go of the past, don't fight and don't know each other. Life and death is a slap in the neck.'"
"That's because we have all gone through a lot." The emperor looked down at Shao Xun and said with a gentle expression: "There is nothing serious except life and death. I am just a mortal who can't save the dead. What qualifications do I have to be arrogant?"
