Chapter Sixty-Nine – The Emperor (19)
The injury of Yan Jing Ze is not serious, and Dr. Hu is a good doctor, his wounds are well-treated, so after a few days, Yan Jing Ze feels better.
Unfortunately, everyone wouldn’t let him move, forcing him to stay on his bed.
This posture… occasionally lying down for one night is nothing and not uncomfortable, but after a long time, it’s really painful. Yan Jing Ze feels that he is like a turtle by lying down like this.
Wait, it’s not good to say he looks like a turtle?
But although lying on his stomach is very uncomfortable, Yan Jing Ze is not too painful. After all, his general has been always been next to him, and even personally cooked, and boiled medicine for him.
In order to make Yan Jing Ze willing to take medicine, Chu Ting Xiu personally boiled the medicine for him.
Yan Jing Ze lay on the folded quilt, looking at the medicine bowl in front of him with a face full of helplessness: “Can I not take it? I have a trauma. Just apply the medicine. Why should I take the medicine?”
“Your Majesty, this medicine nourishes the blood and nourishes the body, ” Chu Ting Xiu said.
In fact, he had been injured before, and it was all done by rubbing some golden sore medicine, but Yan Jing Ze was different.
He was always worried about the slow healing of Yan Jing Ze’s injuries, and was anxious for Yan Jing Ze to drink a few more bowls of medicine.
“I don’t want to drink,” Yan Jing Ze said.
“What would it take for Your Majesty to be willing to drink?” Chu Ting Xiu asked.
“You coax me.” Yan Jing Ze showed a naughty smile.
Chu Ting Xiu: “……”
What else can Chu Ting Xiu do? Of course, to coax ah!
As for how to coax…
Kissing and hugging is not uncommon, and he was finally tricked into undressing by Yan Jing Ze, getting under the covers.
The person is already in the arms… Yan Jing Ze took a mouthful of all the medicine, then one hand and one foot pressed Chu Ting Xiu: “Well, you cannot go, accompany me to take a nap.”
Recently there are quite a lot of things in the capital, Chu Ting Xiu often went out to deal with while he was asleep. He returned to the capital last night and rushed back early in the morning… he hadn’t slept all night and must be very tired now.
Chu Ting Xiu stared at Yan Jing Ze for a while and closed his eyes.
Sleeping with His Majesty couldn’t be a more blissful thing.
Chu Ting Xiu soon fell asleep. Yan Jing Ze slept a little more these days, there is no drowsiness, so he took a few books from the bed to read.
As he read, he also fell asleep.
When Yan Jing Ze was sleeping with his own general in his arms, Prime Minister Cui, who was locked up in the village, had become increasingly agitated.
Although they, the ministers, are not allowed to leave the village but can move freely in the village, food and supplies are good, life should be very comfortable.
But ever since he learned that Chu Ting Xiu slept with Yan Jing Ze, he has been sitting on the edge of his seat.
He is not that kind of foolish and loyal courtier, at least when the Empress Dowager was there, he did not fall to the Empress Dowager, but for the sake of his own life and power, he did not go against the Empress Dowager.
But even so, finding such a thing, he still found it hard to accept.
In particular, a few days ago he had bumped into Chu Ting Xiu who was covered in blood and just came back from outside.
At that time, Chu Ting Xiu looked like a demon, making him shudder.
Is it really good for the court to be held by such a person?
Prime Minister Cui would like to talk to Yan Jing Ze, but Yan Jing Ze wants to recuperate and has not seen anyone.
Later, he began to doubt that the Yan Jing Ze could have been in trouble, or completely controlled by Chu Ting Xiu…
The more Prime Minister Cui thought about it, the more worried and scared he became.
Luckily, another day passed and Yan Jing Ze asked to see him.
Prime Minister Cui breathed a sigh of relief and hurriedly went to see Yan Jing Ze.
Yan Jing Ze now no longer have to lie on his stomach, can lie on his side.
He was lying on his side against the fluffy quilt, and when he saw Prime Minister Cui coming over, he had someone move a stool for him.
After saluting, Prime Minister Cui sat down on the stool, and only then looked at Yan Jing Ze: “Your Majesty, how is your injury?”
” There is no longer a serious injury, just need to rest a few more days,” Yan Jing Ze said.
Prime Minister Cui looked over and found that Yan Jing Ze was red and glowing, looking good, not looking like someone who’s in a bad health… He figured that Yan Jing Ze’s injury was really not serious.
Seeing this, Prime Minister Cui breathed a sigh of relief, but when he thought of Chu Ting Xiu, his face became unpleasant again.
The Prime Minister Cui knows how to protect himself. Naturally, he would not speak directly about Chu Ting Xiu’s faults in front of Yan Jing Ze, he first talked to Yan Jing Ze about the government and then started chatting.
When chatting, he quoted the scriptures, several times hinting to Yan Jing Ze, to be careful of Chu Ting Xiu, and not to be overwhelmed by feelings.
Yan Jing Ze did not understand it at first, but later figured it out, after listening to it again, he felt a little helpless.
Prime Minister Cui obviously already knows about his relationship with Chu Ting Xiu, and seems to regard him as the kind of person with a deep mind who wants to plot the emperor and usurp the throne.
“Prime Minister, let’s not talk in the dark, you know about my relationship with Chu Ting Xiu?” Yan Jing Ze asked directly.
The prime minister, Cui, did not expect that Yan Jing Ze would speak so directly, and for a moment did not know how to answer the question.
In turn, Yan Jing Ze smiled, “Prime Minister, Chu Ting Xiu and I love each other and have decided to stay together all the time, without leaving each other.”
Prime Minister Cui: “Your Majesty!”
“The prime minister needs no further persuasion.” Yan Jing Ze was firm.
Hearing this, Prime Minister Cui became even more anxious and stood up, “Your Majesty, don’t be deceived by Chu Ting Xiu!”
“Deceived by Chu Ting Xiu?” Yan Jing Ze froze, suddenly realizing that… Prime Minister Cui should have misunderstood something.
Prime Minister Cui bowed towards Yan Jing Ze. “The actual fact is that there are many options for you to choose from, even if you like men. So why choose Chu Ting Xiu? He has saved your life by coaxing you like this…” The question that Prime Minister Cui wanted to ask was actually ‘Why do you have to be subservient to others?’
Yan Jing Ze looked at Prime Minister Cui speechlessly, “Prime Minister, I’m afraid that you have misunderstood.”
Prime Minister Cui was stunned. Could it be that Yan Jing Ze and Chu Ting Xiu had nothing to do with each other? If not, why would His Majesty say that there was a misunderstanding?
“It took me quite a lot of effort to coax Chu Ting Xiu into being willing to be with me,” Yan Jing Ze said. Chu Ting Xiu coaxed him? That’s too funny, it’s clearly him coaxing Chu Ting Xiu!
Prime Minister Cui: “……” His Majesty’s affection for Chu Ting Xiu, is that deep?
“The two of us, Prime Minister, you do not need to care about… You just have to know that he will be my partner, the only partner,” Yan Jing Ze said.
After the great change in nature, many people feel that Yan Jing Ze’s aura is extraordinary and frightening. However, Yan Jing Ze, in fact, already has an extraordinary aura plus the Emperor’s powerful aura.
At least, Prime Minister Cui, an experienced and knowledgeable minister, although he felt that the change in Yan Jing Ze was enormous and hidden. But not so much as to be bluffed to fall down and worship, at this time he is not afraid: “Your Majesty, it is not allowed!”
“Prime Minister Cui, you’ve been clear-headed for so many years, just continue in the future, don’t get old and find yourself in trouble.” Yan Jing Ze said: “I want Chu Ting Xiu, I will definitely get him, and will never let go.”
Prime Minister Cui’s face changed, he looked up and saw Yan Jing Ze looking out the door with a look of determination.
He was startled in his heart.
Before he saw Yan Jing Ze blocking the knife for Chu Ting Xiu, he thought Yan Jing Ze was perhaps controlled by Chu Ting Xiu, or overwhelmed by emotion, but now, he is not sure.
The not-so-young Prime Minister Cui, at this time, is full of entanglement.
Wang Zhong stood behind Yan Jing Ze and looked at the prime minister with contemptuous eyes.
It is said that Prime Minister Cui is very smart, in his opinion… he’s obviously not too smart.
His Majesty and General Chu… It was clearly General Chu who was eaten to death by His Majesty.
This time, His Majesty was injured because of General Chu, he was indeed a little unhappy, but not so much to blame General Chu. At that time, if not for General Chu, His Majesty would have been killed!
His Majesty risked his life to save General Chu, and General Chu is no different.
He originally thought that His Majesty, no matter what, should always establish a queen, but after a life and death situation… he felt that even if His Majesty did not establish a queen, it was no big deal.
As long as His Majesty is happy with his life.
The other ministers were also called in and similarly beaten up so that they would not talk nonsense.
In fact, even if they talk nonsense, he does not mind, but at this stage… it is better to have fewer things.
After two more days of rest, Yan Jing Ze returned to the capital.
He can’t always not show up.
After returning to the capital, Yan Jing Ze learned that Chu Ting Xiu had disposed of many people this time.
This assassination, in fact, was planned by the Empress Dowager’s people and King Ping’s people together, in order to take revenge, but unfortunately, they ultimately failed. The only people left in the party were solved by Chu Ting Xiu!
The ministers were more well-behaved than before when they went to court, as Yan Jing Ze notice.
With so many people dying recently, they are no doubt frightened.
This way …… is actually quite good.
That is… he always thought that it would take a lot of time to make the people in the imperial court be afraid of him, so that he could act freely, and now… Let the people in the court be afraid of him, this goal has been achieved?
Nowadays, no matter what he does, probably no one dares to control him!
But for the time being …… it is better for him not to do too much.
He wants to be with Chu Ting Xiu well, but does not want to leave the name of foolish puppet ruler in history!
After his return to the capital, Yan Jing Ze began to work hard to be a good emperor.
Now he is handling the affairs of the court with ease, and with Chu Ting Xiu by his side to deter, he can still do something for the good of the people regardless of the opposition of those ministers.
The only thing that makes Yan Jing Ze more depressed is that since he was injured, Chu Ting Xiu is not as enthusiastic – although Chu Ting Xiu still sticks to him all day, but in certain things, no longer takes the initiative.
What is going on with Chu Ting Xiu? Think his body is not good after one injury?
Or does he think he’s too weak and dislikes him?
Well, it is impossible to dislike him, Chu Ting Xiu loves him to death and will never dislike him.
But he still needs to learn martial arts well, lest the critical moment, not only cannot help but also drag the legs of Chu Ting Xiu.
Yan Jing Ze was stimulated by those assassins, he practiced martial arts more and more serious, every day, rain or shine, and finally developed a muscle.
He was sure Chu Ting Xiu would like it!
In addition, he now has a body that is much better, and can definitely make Chu Ting Xiu cannot get out of bed!
Chu Ting Xiu: “……” He doesn’t want to be unable to get out of bed…
