Deep in the palace, with high walls of red brick.
There was a strong scent of peach blossoms in the air. A few pink petals fell into her palm as the waves of memories came flooding to her.
She still came back in the end, after many difficulties, she still came back.
She did all she could for a short life.
She didn’t know if she could be happy in this life.
“Xiao Yue, do you like this place?” She looked up at the peach blossoms in the wind, mixing with the pure white snow, looking so beautiful.
After a while, she slightly knitted her brows and was pulled back from her memories. She turned her head and said, “Xiao Yue?”
There was nothing behind her, only the vast expanse of snow and a few light footprints.
This girl really needed to be educated. This was the royal palace, not a place that she could wander around in.
She pursed her lips and followed Xiao Yue’s footsteps. This search lasted around half an hour. The further she went, the more peach blossoms there were. There were peach blossoms planted on both sides of her.
She didn’t know what special method was used, but even in this cold winter, the peach blossoms still bloomed.
Walking to the end of the ten miles of peach blossoms, there was an ice cold blue plaque that had three words.
Enter and die.
Luo Qing Chen narrowed her eyes to look at the light footprints not far away as she hesitated a bit.
Then the grass on the side moved. Luo Qing Chen narrowed her cold eyes and slowly said in a cold voice, “Who?”
Two girls in bright clothes slowly came out. Luo Qing Chen looked at them, they didn’t seem to be palace maids.
Their eyes weren’t kind as they looked at Luo Qing Chen. There was a bit of jealousy in those unkind eyes.
“This little sister, I just saw a little girl walk in.” One of them in an orange dress said, “You can follow her footsteps in and take a look.”
“Humph.” She gave a soft snort and completely ignored them.
The girl in the red brocaded skirt looked at Luo Qing Chen with a dissatisfied look. Then she said to the girl in the orange dress beside her, “Yan Yan, don’t mind her. She’s wearing such a poor dress and she still wants to fly up the branch to become a phoenix.”
The girls who came into the palace today were all daughters of ministers. Other than coming for the ceremony, most of them came to gain the favour of emperor Feng.
After all, emperor Feng who had left his harem empty for seven years for the previous empress was a god to all the girls in the world.
Luo Qing Chen turned over and her cold as ice eyes swept over the two of them. The scene where they had met Xiao Yue had appeared in front of her eyes.
The picture was a bit blurry and went very fast, but she could clearly hear their voices.
“Ai, ai, ai, that servant, come and help this miss rub her feet. I’m so tired from walking all day.”
Xiao Yue, who had been chasing an ice blue butterfly, stopped and rolled her eyes at the two of them, “Crazy.”
The two instantly flew into a rage after hearing this.
She couldn’t hear what happened after because her ability wasn’t strong enough and she had used up quite a bit of strength.
“Why don’t you look at yourselves in the mirror before ordering people around?” Luo Qing Chen gave a shrug and said, “People who don’t know would think where did these two maids come from.”
“You……Keep talking if you have the skills!” The girl called Yan Yan’s face turned red from anger at Luo Qing Chen’s words and she raised her head to say, “Do you know who this miss is? You dare to talk to me like this!”
As soon as her voice fell, she rushed in front of Luo Qing Chen and raised her hand to slap her.
