This time it was actually Shao Xun's initiative.

Once she made up her mind, she was actually not twitchy in this respect, at least more generous than the average lady. So when the emperor patted her on the back to comfort her, the feeling of shyness not daring to face him had settled down. .

Shao Xun leaned his head on the emperor's shoulder, and quietly raised his eyes to look at him, boldly: "Does your majesty feel good?"

The love in the emperor's heart seemed to overflow, naturally the corners of his eyebrows and eyes were gentle, "What do you think?"

Shao Xun nodded frankly: "I think it's pretty good."

The emperor couldn't help but smiled: "I'm not cured, so come to provoke me."

Shao Xun was a little embarrassed. She was kissed. It seemed that the pain in her body had alleviated a little. She rubbed the man's shoulder, and she said softly, "Your Majesty, thank you for visiting me."

The emperor embraced her: "What is there to be thankful for, but it's only natural and righteous. You are so ill, and I stay in the palace and stay uneasy."

Shao Xun wanted to say that none of her family members came to visit the patient "justified", but he didn't want to complain about some insignificant people at this time, and said: "Anyway, you ran out of the palace and stayed with me for so long. I must thank you for the time."

The emperor's gaze moved for a while, and then asked calmly: "What about your thanks?"

Shao Xun already understands the emperor's character a little bit. He is very stable most of the time, but there is a little bit of subtle cunning in his bones. He always teases you abruptly when he is convinced by others that he is a decent person, if not. If you understand him, you will think that you are thinking too much.

Shao Xun coughed, and said very calmly: "As promised, do you want to?"

The emperor who was robbed of the words was obviously stunned, and then shaved her cheeks dumbfoundingly: "You child, your courage is getting bigger and bigger."

Shao Xun successfully avoided the emperor's small trap, and she was a little proud. She remembered another thing and asked curiously: "By the way, your Majesty, how did you get in today?"

Last time he walked in through the gate of Yingguo Gongfu with a direct and upright person. But today, the situation is different. Yingguo public is not in the government. He visited his minister's house on the Qianqiu Festival and stayed there for a long time, which is obviously unreasonable. .

If the emperor was so excited, it would be fine to ignore his own heart, but the emperor was obviously not such a person, and it was even more unlikely that he would not think for Shao Xun, so he must have come with thorough consideration.

The emperor said calmly: "Just come in."

Shao Xun tilted his head suspiciously and looked at him for a while, and suddenly said, "You didn't come in over the wall, did you?"

It is impossible for him to be alone anywhere, so he must be followed by many people in the dark, so it is impossible for him to bring people…

The emperor was unmoved, and refused to answer whatsoever.

Shao Xun stopped asking, but relied on the emperor to repeat quietly: "Thank you."

The corners of the emperor's lips curled up: "You don't need to show your promise now, okay to write to me every day?"

"Write a letter?" Shao Xun felt a little numb: "It can be, but there is nothing to write about. It's just those things every day, and it's meaningless."

The emperor raised an eyebrow slightly: "You and Ruotong are going to have a letter in two or three days. Why did you write it?"

All the letters sent to the palace were checked, just to prevent someone from being entrained. Shao Xun was not surprised that the emperor would know that he had correspondence with the second princess.

Shao Xun helplessly: "Our girls always write about short things from the parents to the west. It would be a waste of time to show them to you."

"Is it a waste?" The emperor said: "You just write it, and you are not allowed to write something like'Don't read it well' as a perfunctory."

Shao Xun didn't want to write, she blinked, and tentatively said, "Anyway, my letter to Ah Tong must be checked. You can just open it and read it. Just treat it as I wrote to you, your father and daughter… "

The emperor was so angry and funny by her gods, he lightly nodded her smooth forehead: "A letter, to two people, girl, you can really make an idea."

Shao Xun was about to hug the emperor to beg for mercy. He heard the emperor's words and suddenly had a question: "Your Majesty, you never seem to call my name, right?"

When the emperor met her, he always called her "girl", "little girl" and so on, and once called her "little pearl", but except for the time when he asked for her name, it seemed that he had never heard the emperor call her. first name.

The emperor didn't notice this, and he groaned: "I am used to calling now, but at first I felt that you didn't like your name so I didn't call it."

He still remembered that she said that her name meant "conformity."

This is really not like a description with affection.

Shao Xun was stunned, and then said: "It's okay. I really didn't like it when I was young, but I was relieved when I was a little older. After all, the name belongs to my own. It seems a bit hypocritical to be entangled in the meaning of it… Do you still remember how you explained this word in Fenglinxuan."

The emperor certainly remembered that he was deeply impressed that day, and to this day he can recall every word Shao Xun said and every action he made at that time.


"That's right." Shao Xun said with a smile, "Your golden words, this is the meaning of my name."

When she was young, she didn't live in the same yard with her parents, and there was another twin siblings who could fall out of the sky and were in poor health. Naturally, she was not very eye-catching. Grandmother had her own rules in her behavior, except for extremely excessive things. She would never intervene in parental matters, such as naming her granddaughter.

Because Shao Qiong was exceptionally weak when he was a child, Shao Zhenyu was worried that this daughter would not be able to support him, so he kept on being named without a name, and even Shao Xun and Shao Ying had no names until the twins turned three years old, and Shao Qiong was physically present. I named my third sister and brother only when they were about the same level and would never die easily.

The two of them are siblings of the same birth, so they are naturally a pair.

And that was Shao Xun at an age when she didn't understand the world and didn't hide what she wanted. She didn't even know that Mrs. Zheng was not her mother-in-law. She instinctively wanted to be close to her mother and acted like coquettish. Feel confident.

If you are facing your mother, this behavior is actually normal, but vying with your younger siblings for the stepmother's favor will naturally appear ignorant and ignorant. Shao Zhenyu felt that this daughter was too arrogant and indulged by her grandmother, so he chose "Xun" for her. "This word serves as a warning.

After Shao Xun was sensible, he did respond to the name for a while, but after a long time, he didn't feel anything.

"Do you know my name?"

Shao Xun smiled: "As long as you are literate, you know it. After all, you have to avoid it."

The rules for taboos for the venerable are not harsh. They only include the names of the emperor's elders and teachers. You don't need to avoid them completely. You only need to write one or two strokes. So everyone who reads and reads, You will be told the name of the emperor, so as not to forget to avoid taboos and commit gross disrespect.

The emperor spread out his palms and motioned to Shao Xun to write on it: "You have finished writing, don't cut your pen."

Shao Xun made a gesture on his hand with his index finger.


The emperor nodded and held the words in his hand with Shao Xun's hand: "You can also call my name directly."

Shao Xun was taken aback, and then tried to read the word with her mouth open, but she was unsuccessful for a long time. She smiled bitterly and said, "No…too awkward, I can't call it out."

The emperor shook his head helplessly: "It's just a name."

He was a little regretful, but he didn't force it right now, thinking that one day he would be able to coax her out.

The two people chatted freely, and they found it very interesting, not boring at all.

After a while, Liu Xin brought some bowls of porridge and side dishes specially made for Shao Xun.

Only then did Shao Xun realize that the emperor hadn't eaten a bite of food until now, so he persuaded him to make do with him to have a meal.

The emperor is very adaptable to this. At least he can eat some things that Shao Xun can't eat. It's not like an emperor. He slowed down at first and hung up on Shao Xun before eating the rest. After eating, the action is neat, and there is no disgust.

After that, the sky gradually darkened, and Shao Xun's physical strength gradually couldn't hold on, and the emperor put him back in the quilt to rest.

Shao Xun lay down and his sleepiness began to rise, but he was a little reluctant to see the emperor sitting next to the bed, "Your Majesty, are you leaving?"

The emperor said gently: "No, I watched you sleep, and I will return to the palace when you fall asleep."

Shao Xun's fingers stretched out to hold the emperor's hand: "I, I fell asleep slowly…"

The emperor clearly looked at her eyes as they opened and closed, as if they couldn't open them, but still followed her words: "It's okay, I'll stay a little longer."

Only then did Shao Xun feel relieved. He took his hand and closed his eyes, and soon fell asleep.

The emperor saw that her breathing tended to be slow and regular, and he knew that she had fallen asleep.

But he didn't move, just holding the girl's hand, watching her sleep peacefully, really stayed for a while.

Seeing that it was a little late, the emperor lowered his head and touched Shao Xun's hand, then put it back in the quilt and covered it tightly, then got up and went out.

The people in the yard had long been sent away by Liu Xin because the girl was too noisy. At this moment, there was no sound. Only the lights in the main yard in the distance were gradually lit, and there was a faint voice.

Liu Xin said: "Your Majesty, I'm afraid the palace banquet is over. Yingguo Dukes have just entered the mansion."

The emperor had no expression, just said: "Take care of your girl, don't have another time."

Liu Xin was shocked, and then another loose, knowing that at least he had escaped this time.

The banquet was completely gone when the emperor returned to the palace.

The whole day of the feast, the palace seems to still have traces and excitement left by the extreme excitement.

Without squinting, the emperor went directly to Ningshou Palace without returning to the Liangyi Hall.

Not surprisingly, I ate a closed door.

Mother Wu Clan was a little embarrassed and blocked at the door of the hall: "Your Majesty, the empress dowager has already stopped, saying that she has not seen anyone."

The emperor naturally knew that this meant an expression of dissatisfaction, and he nodded: "Excuse me, my mother told me that I wanted to greet the Empress Dowager."

The Wu family was a little embarrassed and approached the emperor and whispered: "The empress is getting angry right now. You might as well go back and wait until tomorrow morning. Maybe the empress will be relieved by then."

The emperor shook his head calmly: "If we don't see you tonight, the anger of the Empress Dowager will only be more intense tomorrow, there is no reason to calm down."

Wu also had to admit that what the emperor said was right, she said helplessly: "Your Majesty, look at this… How happy the Empress Dowager was before, how angry she is now, you… Oh, if you really don't want to go, don't It's the promise. If you say that you regret it, you will regret it. How can you make your empress face passable."

"It's because I was inconsiderate and made a random promise…" After being complained by the servants, the emperor was not angry, but said peacefully: "Please go to pass the message, please, I have something important to discuss with the Empress Dowager."
