The emperor's words were slow but firm.
Shao Xun saw his eyes, and a certain string in his heart seemed to have been slightly plucked.
She is not stupid. The emperor's attitude made her understand the other party's plan.
This is not a joke, Shao Xun said with some trepidation: "Your Majesty, you…"
The emperor shook her hand and shook his head: "I didn't say what we are going to do now. Besides, if you are a man or a woman, you don't have to have anything you want. You can wait for delivery with peace of mind and don't think too much."
"It's not that I think too much," Shao Xun frowned unconsciously: "It is clear that you thought too early…"
The emperor paused for a moment, and then said: "You are right, it is too early to say anything, but… since we have him, it is natural for me to have expectations."
The child in his stomach moved lightly, as if a small bubble touched his belly. The emperor felt it, and laughed unconsciously: "You have to rely on it, but if this child wins…"
"What do you want him to do?" Shao Xun pursed his lips: "I rely on… isn't it you?"
The emperor's actions paused, then raised his head and looked at her gently: "I…I can't take care of you all my life…"
Shao Xun suddenly squeezed the emperor's palm on her stomach, his eyes widened: "Why can't you… you promised me!"
Her tone was a bit fierce, but the emperor was still very calm. He looked at Shao Xun's peaceful eyes with indescribable meaning, tenderly almost with a little pity: "Girl…do you know how big you are? Years old?"
Shao Xun pursed the corners of his mouth tightly, and said nothing.
The emperor sighed softly, "That was nearly nineteen years. At the beginning of the imperial period, you were not even born…"
"So?" Shao Xun's eyes flashed faintly: "We have known this for a long time. What do you mean by this?"
The emperor knew that Shao Xun might not know what she meant. She just didn't want to think about it or admit it.
But whether she admits it or not, this is a fact and cannot be changed by manpower.
Shao Xun was pregnant with a child, and his emotions were more prone to ups and downs than ordinary people. The emperor shed tears when he saw her in grievance. He couldn't bear to push her any more, so he opened his arms and hugged her on his knees. I really said something wrong, okay to apologize to you?"
"It was originally!" Shao Xun sniffed, "You said that you are going to leave me alone after you trick me into the palace."
"…I didn't lie to you, what I said at the time was that the lifetime must be…"
Before he finished speaking, he noticed that his arm was twisted severely, and the emperor had to stop: "Okay, I won't say anything…"
Shao Xun's emotions passed, and he gradually calmed down, resting his head on the emperor's shoulders, "Your Majesty, you said you want to stay with me all the time."
The emperor held her in silence for a long time before he whispered softly: "I want to promise you too, but…some things can't be done just like I want."
Shao Xun didn't blame him this time: "You only need to do your best. What happens to this child depends on his own destiny. He has his own way and can do what he likes, whether he is a man. It's a female."
As for what you can't do…I can do it.
Just like what the emperor said just now, Shao Xun would be dissatisfied when she heard it. She knew that she would definitely make the emperor angry if she said it, so she swallowed it back in her stomach and just told herself.
The two princes were of the same age, and they were married together. It was a big event. Unfortunately, the princes and concubines were not very successful in their family background, which made people confused about the meaning of the saint.
In the past, the great prince feudalized the king and established the mansion, and later the second and third princes gave marriages. This fact all shows that the emperor has no meaning for the prince, and it makes the ministers who have been stunned by the dragon's merits sober. Up.
At this time, they used their hard-to-conscious minds to think, and suddenly found that the emperor's age was far from when he was about to die. If he had ten years of life, the sixth prince could grow up, and in twenty years, Guifei Shao. The children in the belly may also have married and had children.
At that time, the emperor was only in his early fifties.
Looking at it again, the eldest prince is constantly self-serving and lacks literary talent. The third prince has weak temperament and is very easy to use emotions when he is in politics. The second prince… is pretty good in all aspects, but it is a pity that the birth mother is only a court girl and is also the father of the king. Evil, on the contrary, is the most unlikely of the three.
Looking at it this way… it seems that it is not so reliable to press Bao on the older princes too early.
This thought made the officials a little surprised.
Except for those who have clearly indicated which prince to support and can't get off the boat, other people who are slightly biased or who have not made up their minds are all agitated. They sit on their buttocks upright, and are diligent in doing errands for a while, so they don't dare to think about it. Some of those are gone.
Princess Kejing moved back home with the child, and after a few days of making friends with her husband, she was summoned into the palace by the Empress Dowager.
The Empress Dowager looked at her granddaughter up and down: "How's it going, is it comfortable to live at home? How good is it?"
Princess Kejing's complexion looked much better, her cheeks flushed without rouge, but she was still a lot thinner than before she gave birth, she couldn't help but smile: "You know, you know, it's always good to granddaughter, but Abo is still young, and it's a horrible thing. Feeding him at night is really hard."
The emperor has given life to the two newly born juniors, which are the two characters "Yu" and "Bo". The eldest grandson of the emperor is Zhao Yu, and the uncle of Yongxing is Lin Bo.
She complained, but her eyes were full of sweetness. This shows that she really can't love her children. The hard work of a new mother's self-feeding made her feel closer to her children.
When the Empress Dowager saw her mentioning her husband and the child, her eyes were all at ease, she also let go of her heart for the most part, and her whole person was happy: "Your grandmother is relieved when you have a good life."
Princess Kejing smiled, but she didn't know what she thought of, her face suddenly became serious, and she waved her hand to tell the palace people to withdraw, and leaned in the eyes of the Empress Dowager in puzzlement: "Grandmother, who is the future wife of the second brother?" Are you clear?"
The Empress Dowager shook her head: "I have always ignored these, and your father never wanted others to intervene."
Princess Kejing was dissatisfied: "The Xiao family was born in a cold, and his father was just a wine sacrifice for the Imperial College. How can he be a royal daughter-in-law?"
When the Empress Dowager heard it, she said: "What do you care about, the concubines of Yan Yi and Yan Bin are not from a big family, and you want to come to your father to have his considerations."
"Oh, grandmother…" Princess Kejing took the old lady's hand and acted like a baby: "Didn't my granddaughter beg you to pay attention to the ladies in each family? Why don't you care about it."
The Empress Dowager patted the back of her granddaughter's hand: "It's not that I don't care, but it's useless. You see Shu fei has a heart. She is full of civil and martial arts, and the girls of the third rank and above may have to pick it over and over again, but your father decides. Now, she picks 10,000 more, is it useful?"
"How can Shu fei compare with you," Princess Kejing curled her lips: "Furthermore, choosing a son-in-law for me back then, isn't it all your decision?"
The Empress Dowager shook her head: "This is not the same thing at all."
She touched Princess Kejing's profile face: "My child, you are raised by me, and you are a girl. I just ask you to be carefree and prosperous for a lifetime, but boys are different."
Princess Kejing was silent for a long time, and finally whispered: "How likely is it that your second brother will be the prince?"
The Empress Dowager's brows tightened suddenly, and said: "This is not something your girl's family should take care of."
Princess Kejing still didn't give up: "I don't even look down on the others, but the concubine's son, only the second brother of literary and martial arts, has no shortcomings, why can't it be him?!"
"Who is not the son of a concubine here?" the Empress Dowager asked rhetorically.
"The second brother is different, he was raised by his mother…"
"Are you talking about the few days he was just born? He was sent back to Jinfang's place by your father in less than three days. Is that called raising? Besides…" The Empress Dowager hummed, "He is Really "son of the maidservant", and able to support the country?"
Princess Kejing was speechless, and after a long period of silence, she could only mutter: "But… the others became princes, I…"
Knowing her concerns, the Empress Dowager changed her voice to soothed and said: "You are just quarreling between children, and it is not a deep hatred.
Yan Yi is not obsessed with trivial matters, and doesn't care about you at all. Yanbin and her mother, as long as you don't tear your face with her, she won't do anything to you; Xiaoliu is still young, let's talk about Yibi's low position, please pay you back Too late…"
"As for the imperial concubine," mentioning Shao Xun, the Empress Dowager's eyebrows were unconsciously loosened, and a smile appeared in her eyes, making Princess Kejing look really dazzling: "She doesn't have to worry about it."
Princess Kejing pursed her lips into a line, gritted her teeth and said: "Never mind the top ones. Although the imperial concubine is favored, it will take a few years before she is born to be a son of the Shao Brothers. The Lord is suspicious…"
"Zhen'er!" The Empress Dowager interrupted her harshly, with a rare and severe tone: "Do you know what you are talking about-you are arguing about your father's lifespan!"
Ke Jing was frightened and shivered, but the Empress Dowager did not comfort, but continued to solemnly said: "You have everything you want on weekdays, but this… involves abolition, how dare you be so sloppy?"
When Princess Kejing was seldom blamed by the Empress Dowager, she was caught off guard and was sternly scolded. She was immediately wronged and frightened. She couldn't help but said, "I, I just said a few words in private…"
The Empress Dowager couldn't stand her feeling softened again. Although she wanted to continue to harden her heart and teach her again, the tone of her mouth had already eased a lot: "I'm afraid you don't know that the sky is high and the earth is thick… this kind of thing is not ours. These women and Taoists who don't know anything about government affairs can mix things up. People always need to know how many catties they are."
After being soothed for a few words, Princess Kejing knew that she was wrong, and she swallowed back the tears that had just been scared. She was particularly unwilling to say: "If I were a boy, it would be fine, and there would be no such troubles."
As soon as she uttered the words, she found that the Empress Dowager's whole body trembled violently, her eyes also panicked for a moment, and she quickly asked with concern: "Grandma, what's the matter with you?"
The Empress Dowager stared at her granddaughter in a daze, before she managed to calm down for a long time, and muttered: "Girls are good, girls are better…"
Seeing Princess Kejing tilting her head in some doubts, she reluctantly smiled and said: "The girl is a little padded jacket of the grandmother. If you are the prince, I'm afraid you won't kiss your grandmother like this."
"How come," Princess Kejing said intimately: "I am the closest to my grandmother, and I can't compare to my Empress."
Having said that, she was a little worried when she thought of the Empress, her eyes dimmed a little: "That's what I did. I didn't do it for myself, but… the second brother and the Empress still have some friendship, and the others… In the future, the two houses will stand side by side, let her How to deal with yourself…"
The Empress Dowager was startled again, thinking of the emperor's possible plans, she couldn't help but look away, did not look at her granddaughter's worried eyes, and could not even say any words of comfort.
