Coming Of The Villain Boss Chapter 107
"Royal Princess, do you have anything to say?" The emperor looked to his side, where Ming Shu was sitting and eating desserts. How did she become so obsessed with food?
Ming Shu was biting on a piece of sweet-scented osmanthus cake, and she murmured an ambiguous "Well," shoving the whole cake into her mouth and swallowing. After finishing that, she slowly answered: "I have nothing to say. I did it."
The emperor frowned. "Why did you do that?"
His tone was obviously a bit unhappy.
He was the emperor, but she bullied his daughter for no reason, so was she provoking him? Was this her revenge for how he had pressured her yesterday and today?
If Ming Shu knew what was going on in the emperor's mind, she would have laughed.
She didn't think so much, okay? It was just for gaining Hatred Points. Don't direct the show by yourself.
Ming Shu began to talk irresponsibly. "Princess Rong Hua has been playing with fire recently, so I helped her get rid of some heat."
The emperor's eyes narrowed. "So it seems. Perhaps the royal princess can find a way to solve that?"
"Ah?" Now came Ming Shu's turn to be dumbstruck.
He really believed her when she was just making that up!
The fire that Ming Shu was talking about was the princess's violent temper, but the emperor understood it as a real, burning fire. Coincidentally, a few days ago, there was indeed a small fire disaster that occurred in Princess Rong Hua's palace.
Due to the existence of the Heavenly Temple, the emperor believed in Feng Shui and metaphysics very much.
And a prophet had the most complete education in the Heavenly Temple. So from the viewpoint of the emperor, it was not surprising for Ming Shu to do anything like fortunetelling. That was why he believed her and asked more.
Ming Shu straightened her back "seriously," a fist against her lips. "Princess Rong Hua shall be soaked in the pond for two hours everyday, for forty-nine days, then the excessive internal heat will be removed."
"What?" Princess Rong Hua was shocked. "Father, don't listen to her nonsense, she is deliberately humiliating me."
Soaking in the pond for two hours? Impossible! She must have said that deliberately to tease me.
Ming Shu racked her brains and continued the nonsense. "The pond is located in the soil, while both soil and water can inhibit fire."
Seemingly it sounded reasonable, but… really?
"Oh, right, Miss Cheng, you'd better do it with Princess Rong Hua," Ming Shu added, in a gentle tone.
"…" Cheng Jinyun simply couldn't understand whether Ming Shu was deliberately targeting her or if she was just tied up with Princess Rong Hua.
But then again, was the former royal princess like this?
It seems… not?
Was it my rebirth that changed other people's lives?
"Send the royal princess back to the Heavenly Temple," the emperor ordered Li Gonggong next to him after a long silence.
"Father, do you really believe what she said?" Princess Rong Hua was not convinced. She wouldn't believe any word coming out of that woman's mouth!
Emperor turned to his daughter, with a meaningful look, and stopped her from saying anymore.
Ming Shu got up, patted her wrinkled clothes, then followed Li Gonggong to walk to the door. "Oh, I forgot."
She suddenly turned around and picked up the lotus seeds wrapped in leaves.
Princess Rong Hua glared at Ming Shu, the sharp gaze almost piercing through Ming Shu's body.
"Your Highness, be careful with your eyes, don't use them too much."
Ming Shu smiled slightly, then slowly left, holding the lotus seeds.
"Father, what she said was obviously nonsense! She is a liar!" When Ming Shu left, Princess Rong Hua burst out. She felt wronged and angry. "Would you rather believe her than your own daughter?"
"Miss Cheng, you can go back to rest now," the emperor looked at Cheng Jinyun and said.
Cheng Jinyun bowed down to the emperor gracefully. "Yes, Your Majesty."
The emperor waved at everyone to get out, then let Princess Rong Hua come over while shaking his head. "Rong Hua, you don't understand."
"Father, you always say I don't understand, but you never tell me anything. How can I understand?" Princess Rong Hua was almost crying. "Why can't you punish that Shen Ci? You know she did it on purpurse! She bullies me, it's the same as provoking you, she doesn't show any respect for our royal family."
Emperor touched on the head of Princess Rong Hua and said, "The Heavenly Temple is not as simple as you think. Shen Ci is the prophet of the Heavenly Temple, so even if she kills you… Father may well be able to do nothing."
It was not that he didn't want to punish Shen Ci, but he couldn't.
He had to be tolerant.
Princess Rong Hua looked at the emperor incredulously.
The emperor sighed. "Do you know what the situation is right now?"
Princess Rong Hua shook her head mechanically, her heart beating in a nervous rhythm.
There had been no major war in the past hundred years, and there was no need for the Heavenly Temple to show its power. Meanwhile, the people of Heavenly Temple were even more understated. Sometimes when they were scolded by others, they would just stand still with their heads lowered, not arguing.
Therefore, these princes and princesses may think that those people were only attached to the royal family. They were respected because of the existence of the royal family.
Princess Ronghua never thought, the Heavenly Temple… was so powerful that her father seemed to be very restricted by them.
"The world's situation is never stable. There is no long unification or long division. Our Wushang Dynasty has been in power for too long. Those dukes, generals, and ministers underneath have already been planning something. If at this time, I lose the support of the Heavenly Temple, I'm not sure if I can hold the throne."
Although he did pressure Ming Shu, the emperor really didn't dare to offend her at his will. He was worried now.
"Father…" Princess Rong Hua still couldn't believe the truth. "Is it… so serious?"
"Don't provoke her again, can you do that? Just mind your own business, being a real princess, and remember, she is protecting the territory for our royal family."
She is protecting the territory for our royal family.
"Your Royal Highness, you are back."
The minute Ming Shu stepped into the Heavenly Temple, Zhi Qi welcomed and greeted her. Standing not far away was the old master, who was touching his beard with a kind smile.
"Is everything okay? His Majesty… did he scold you?" The master's fatherly voice was mixed with a little worry.
"No." That old fox, even if he wanted to, he didn't have the courage to accomplish it.
The master nodded. "Come with me, I have something to tell you."
Ming Shu handed the lotus seeds to Zhi Qi and smiled. "Can you make lotus seed soup for me?"
"Yes, Your Highness." The smile of my princess is so beautiful.
But wait, where did she get the lotus seeds?
The old master took Ming Shu to the Heavenly Temple's innermost chamber. The door was closed and there were several disciples guarding it, making it look quite mysterious.
After confirming the environmental security, the master said, "What do you know about the assassination attempt?"
Ming Shu dragged out a chair and sat down, chin on her palm. "One assassin said that I blocked the road."
The master's eyes darkened. "Is there anything else?"
Ming Shu shook her head. She knew very little about any of it.
"I've got some news here." The master pushed a letter toward Ming Shu.
Ming Shu opened the letter and read it with an unchanging expression.
"What do these people want to do? Rebel?"
The master said heavily, " The world's situation is never stable. There is no long unification or long division. As you can see, these people's biggest obstacle is our Heavenly Temple. If the assassination attempt had really succeeded, the Heavenly Temple would not stand by. They could use the incident to play the Heavenly Temple against the royal family…"
Ming Shu raised her eyebrows. "Well, it looks like I'm really blocking the way. Sorry about that?"
Her prophecy and the Heavenly Temple were both what these people wanted to get rid of.
"Those people won't give up, you have to be careful these days."
"All right, I know." Ming Shu moved closer to the master's side and asked smilingly, "Master, is it that our Heavenly Temple no longer needs the royal family?"
