After writing for a bit, it was already noon.
Du Jiu Sheng looked at the sky outside and slightly knitted his brows, “Why isn’t Ya Nu back yet?”
Without knowing why, Luo Qing Chen’s heart skipped a beat. She knitted her brows and said, “I haven’t seen Ya Nu all morning since waking up. I thought that he was on an errand in the palace, was that not the case?”
“No.” Du Jiu Sheng shook his head, “Working in the palace is just for extra monthly salary and Ya Nu is a servant of the cold palace. He only works in the palace once a month and that was yesterday.”
Du Jiu Sheng knitted his brows even more as a slightly unsettled feeling filled his heart.
“Ya Nu doesn’t seem like someone who would make a mistake.” Luo Qing Chen bit her lip, “I feel that he might be in some kind of trouble.”
The word “trouble” was considered light. Ya Nu had been bullied by those maids at the door the other day, so this time he might really be in some kind of danger and couldn’t come back.
“I’ll go look.” Du Jiu Sheng put on his coat, “Wait in the Cold North Palace for me.”
“I’ll go with you.” Luo Qing Chen said, “Perhaps I can help.”
“Big brother Jiu Sheng!”
Du Jiu Sheng looked at her anxious appearance and finally gave a nod, “Then don’t talk too much and follow me.”
“Alright!” Luo Qing Chen gave a serious nod.
When they came out of the Cold North Palace, there was a long hallway.
The thick snow gave a deep feeling when you stepped on it. They could see the footprints of Ya Nu along the way.
It was still snowing, but the footprints weren’t light, so Ya Nu hadn’t been gone for long.
It should have been when she woke up.
But the footprints kept getting lighter and when they reached the fork, they couldn’t see it anymore.
When they came to the end of the hallway, there were paths to the left and right. The left led to the palaces of the concubines and the right led to the imperial doctors and the crown prince’s palace.
“Big brother Jiu Sheng, you go left, I’ll go right.” Luo Qing Chen thought about it and said, “To save time, come find me if you don’t find anything and I’ll come find you if I don’t find anything.”
Although Luo Qing Chen’s idea was very good, Du Jiu Sheng was still hesitant.
She wasn’t dressed as a palace maid and if she met some troublesome masters, then she would be in trouble.
“Big brother Jiu Sheng, this matter can’t be delayed.”
“Alright.” Du Jiu Sheng said with a sigh, “Take care of yourself.”
“No matter what, the empress brought me into the palace and no one would be willing to cause me trouble normally.” Luo Qing Chen thought about it and said, “Big brother Jiu Sheng, you haven’t left the Cold North Palace for a long time, so you should be careful.”
At the end of the corridor, one went left and one went right.
Luo Qing Chen took two steps and couldn’t help turning back to look at Du Jiu Sheng.
In the white snow, he was walking alone. With a cold breeze, he looked very lonely.
“Big brother Jiu Sheng, I hope that nothing happens to Ya Nu, I hope that we will all be well……”
She muttered to herself before turning back to head to the right.
There were some palace maids along the way and they were whispering something. Luo Qing Chen glared at them with cold eyes and they quickly left.
After walking for a quarter of an hour, she heard the sharp voices of several maids.
“Mute, your foot massage technique really isn’t bad. It’s quite comfortable.”
“Ze, ze, ze! He was just getting some medicine and got beaten up like this……But I don’t feel distressed at all, rather I feel very disgusted!”
“A mute is a mute, he’s so disgusting that people want to vomit!”
