This time, Helian Fu was determined not to let go of Ah Xin Sleeves. Although Empress Dowager is not bad, she always mocked him. Now that he is hurt he wants to be comforted by gentle Miss Axin. Looking at the angry appearance of Empress Dowager but still not being able to do anything to him in front of Concubine Lin, he felt good in his heart.
” Okay, Zhiqing, please handle this matter first. I will take Fu’er with me.”
Ning Zhiqing grated her teeth,
Fine! it turned out that this stinky boy really deserved to be stabbed by a woman, humph!!
In the end, she accepted her fate and dealt with her plight here.
She came toward the Queen and looked down at her, ” You are so stupid.”
” You are so cruel. You only care about your safety and glory and you have never been sincere to him. Even if he has no feelings for you he has always been good to you as much as possible. Since ancient times have you heard about any emperor having less than five concubines in his harem? When he made you concubine, he naively thought it was okay not to accept any other concubine after you.”
The Queen was stunned. Somewhat shocked. How could it be?
” His natal Ai family supported him in doing whatever he wants. ” Ning Zhiqing continued with a smile, ” He thought for a while and decided to observe you for a year to see if he can spend his life with you only. Obviously, you let him down.
He is actually astute but not cruel in his heart. When he saw you are not very sincere to him so he didn’t resist when the ministers proposed accepting other concubines in the harem.
The only Queen and no other concubine. He could do it if you were sincere to him, Ning and Ai’s family would have supported him too.”
” Carry it out.” Ning Zhiqing said expressionlessly when Queen was in a shocked state. ” Announce to the world that the Queen died of illness.”
The person who stabbed the King with a knife naturally cannot live anymore.
Helian Fu obviously couldn’t do it so she has to come forward for this, anyway, she used to kill. So she will help him only this time.
For a long time, Helian Fu didn’t come out. So when the execution of Queen was done, Ning Zhiqing couldn’t stand it anymore and finally went to settle scores with him.
Helian Fu raised his head sadly and watched Ning Zhiqing taking Axin happily and was so jealous in his heart.
” Empress Dowager, I am in great pain right now, Cant be you gentle? I have gone through so many twists and turn, I won’t be able to get over it at midnight.”
” Then you can continue mourning tomorrow.” Ning Zhiqing said with a smile while looking sideways at Axin, ” Right, Axin? ”
Axin smiled softly and nodded, ” Well, Fu’er, You are the Emperor. You should handle it on your own.”
” I used to think that the concubine Lin is the most gentle person.”
Axin asked while smiling,” What makes you think of this illusion? ”
” Yeah, that is an illusion.” Helian Fu sat silently in front of the long desk, condemning his performance.
After a long time, he looked up and saw that these two-person have still not left and was a little touched in his heart, “Don’t worry, I will get over it. I am just stuck for a while. It’s getting late, go back and rest.”
” Well, now that I think of it, occasionally staying up at night with family isn’t strange. Axin and I will accompany you.” Ning Zhiqing took Axin’s hand and sat down, ” We haven’t gotten along like this for a long time as we used to be in The Cold Palace.”
Helian Fu didn’t reject it. Although the events before were frightening, it was indeed a thrilling time. There was always a smile on his face and he used to be at peace of mind and at ease.
Many years later, Ning Zhiqing and Ah Xin have already grown heads full of white hair.
Ning Zhiqing lying on the bed while holding Ah Xin’s hand tightly and asked expectingly,” Axin can you kiss me again? ”
Axin lowered her head and kissed Ning Zhiqing’s lips. When she was about to separate Ning Zhiqing held her and whispered in her ear, ” Axin, you are not Lin Xin, right? ”
” Yes,” Axin was not surprised by Ning Zhiqing’s question. Ning Zhiqing got the answer she wanted and her eyes got bright, ” You are a fairy, you came only for me, didn’t you? ”
Axin’s eyes got curved with a soft smile, full of love and she whispered in her ear, ” Yes, just for you.”
” Then you will come for me in my next life? ”
” For you.”
“It’s great.” Ning Zhiqing smiled brilliantly, ” Axin you kiss me again, I want to die in your arms.”
Axin satisfied Ning Zhiqing’s wish, kissed the other person’s forehead, and felt her hand sliding down gradually. A tear dropped from the corner of Axin’s eye and she lay down beside Ning Zhiqing, whispering, ” I will come and die just for you.”
After a long time, Helian Fu pushed open the door and saw the scene of the two holding each other hands and lying peacefully on the couch, with a sour heart he announced, “Burry the Empress Dowager and Concubine Lin together.”
In the place where the palace people could not see, Helian Fu eyes were flushed and he said chokingly, ” The Empress Dowager has left, and the Concubine Lin has also left. No one will protect me anymore.”
