Seeing her angry like this, Du Jiu Sheng strangely panicked. He couldn’t help raising his hand to gently pat her head, “I didn’t mean this, don’t be angry!”
She pursed her lips and took the wine jug as she looked at him to say, “What do you mean, say it clearly! What status do I have in the Cold North Palace!”
Du Jiu Sheng looked into her clear as water eyes and revealed a smile, “You can be whatever you want, just don’t drink the wine.”
“An emperor’s words can’t be taken back.” Luo Qing Chen said with a sigh, “Don’t regret this.”
“I won’t.” Du Jiu Sheng also added, “Give me the wine.”
She unwillingly gave the wine jug to Du Jiu Sheng. The bright moon fell onto her face as white as snow, making it that much more beautiful.
Du Jiu Sheng narrowed his eyes and he was stunned when he took the wine.
The light touching of fingertips could create ripples in one’s heart……
A night without dreams, she slept very sound in that room with the faint scent of sandalwood.
Ya Nu didn’t treat her like a maid, he completely took care of her like a master.
He knew that she was going out of the palace with young master Jiu, so he had prepared some clothes for her.
Luo Qing Chen was very surprised when she received them. It was a light blue begonia laced dress that looked very finely made. It should be one of the special made dresses from the palace.
The price definitely wasn’t cheap.
“This is too expensive……” Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips and said, “It definitely cost you several months salary, I can’t take this.”
“Eh, eh, eh.” Ya Nu desperately shook his head, indicating that she had saved his life.
A piece of clothing couldn’t be compared to the price of a life.
“How about this! You can just help me take my monthly salary!” Luo Qing Chen took the dress and said, “I also don’t need money. If you’re not willing, then I won’t take these clothes.”
Ya Nu was stunned before finally giving a nod.
Actually, Luo Qing Chen’s guess was right. He had spent half a year’s salary on this dress. The monthly salary of a servant in the cold palace naturally couldn’t compare to the servant of the Peace Palace.
But Du Jiu Sheng took good care of him, so he never needed to worry about food or clothes.
After changing clothes, Du Jiu Sheng was already waiting in the yard for her.
He was wearing a snow white long robe that had a good curve to it and a moon white belt with cloud markings. There was a finely carved piece of black jade on it, but the shape was quite strange.
He and Luo Qing Chen looked at each other before revealing faint smiles.
“Ya Nu, we’ll be back by the evening.”
“Eh, eh, eh!”
Ya Nu nodded with eyes filled with happiness. In all these years, young master Jiu had never left the palace, but after miss Qing Chen arrived, everything had changed.
The south gate was very close to the Cold North Palace. You could walk in a straight line to Empty Spirit Temple after leaving the palace.
If you continued for another half an hour, you would reach Peaceful Ink Street.
The Cold North Palace couldn’t compare to the Peace Palace. You could reach the prosperous Peaceful Ink Street as soon as you came out of the north gate.
But this was also good. Being able to walk side by side with Du Jiu Sheng was a happy thing for her.
The streets were filled with people and there were all kinds of hawkers calling out.
“Candied hawthorns, big and sweet candied hawthorns!”
She looked over at Du Jiu Sheng beside her with a smile, “This Peaceful Ink City is so lively! Even the air outside the palace is more free!”
“The Mo Country and the Liao People have been fighting over the years and most of the men have gone to the battlefield. Peaceful Ink City isn’t even half as prosperous as it once was.”
