Before Luo Qing Chen could react, Luo Lin had already walked over from not far away.
He was wearing a neat official’s uniform and there were faint tears in his eyes.
“This old minister greets your highness.”
“No need to be polite. Great scholar, please sit.”
Feng Qian Che’s tone wasn’t arrogant, rather it gave people a feeling of respect.
“Thank you, your highness.”
Luo Qing Chen looked at Luo Lin and her eyes turned red. Seeing his old and tired expression, her heart felt very uncomfortable.
She had always ignored something, she didn’t tell the previous host’s parents right away that she was safe after returning.
Actually, she had thought of it before, but her identity was too awkward. She wanted to wait until she explained everything to Feng Qian Che before going home.
But there were too many things that happened over the past two days that she couldn’t react.
“Your highness, this miss looks familiar, could it be……”
There was an enemy of Luo Lin in the crowd that wanted to make it hard on the Luo Family in front of everyone.
Before Feng Qian Che had cut him off before he could even finish.
“Un.” He narrowed his eyes to look at the person and there was killing intent that appeared in his deep eyes as he said, “She is——”
“I am Luo Qing Qing, the great scholar’s second daughter.” Luo Qing Chen immediately cut off what Feng Qian Che wanted to say as a trace of determination appeared in her clear eyes.
The pot exploded after that.
The people who didn’t dare speak started discussing after they heard what Luo Qing Chen said.
“Yi, why have I never heard that the great scholar had a second daughter!”
“I never heard of this either, but how can you and I know about the affairs of the great scholar?”
“If I remember correctly, the great scholar’s eldest daughter is called Luo Qing Chen and she married the minister of affairs Rong Sen’s son Rong Mu Ling three years ago…..”
“That’s not wrong, that is true. A few days ago, Rong Mu Ling divorced Luo Qing Chen and that girl jumped into the lake to commit suicide……”
Luo Qing Chen’s interruption and the whispers made Feng Qian Che unconsciously knit his brows.
This girl, what was she trying to do? Her hands were covered in cold sweat, but her eyes were filled with determination.
But he knew that she was very nervous.
What was she afraid of? What was there to fear, so what if he said her name?
As long as Feng Qian Che liked someone, there was no one in this world that could stop him, even emperor Feng couldn’t do it.
“I know what you are thinking……” Luo Qing Chen’s tone became low and cold. She took a deep breath and looked at him as she softly said, “But I’m not willing.”
She wasn’t willing to see him being criticized by others and she didn’t want others to accuse him, so at this place, in front of everyone, she wasn’t willing to admit to the previous host’s identity.
It wasn’t because she looked down on the previous host, but because she had someone she wanted to protect.
“Actually, big sister Luo Qing Chen and I were twins, but because of my poor health, my father sent me to recuperate at the Green Wood Temple at Snow Peak Mountain at a young age.” Luo Qing Chen’s lips curled slightly as she said with a calm look, “I actually met his highness a few days ago……”
It did seem unbelievable, but no one could find a way to see through her words today.
After all, this was the Luo Family’s matter and it was natural that people didn’t know everything.
