Feng Wu said, “We’ll build the foundation first . After the underground formations are complete, I’ll make some partial changes based on the structure of the manor . The minor formations can wait till the end . ”
“Minor formations? Such as…”
“Such as a small formation centered around the dry well, or a mini one like what I did with that Whistling Vase . They’ll all join up and become part of the completed Taiyi formation . ” Feng Wu wiped the sweat from her forehead .
Building the Taiyi formation was a lot of work, but she was enjoying every minute of it .
For one, she could put the theories she had learned from her beautiful master to use . The more she practiced, the more impressed she was by how knowledgeable her beautiful master was .
Grand Secretary Fang had lost count of how many times Feng Wu’s knowledge of formations had amazed him .
For another, once the formation was completed, it would help Feng Wu and those around her . And it wasn’t limited to their cultivation; the formation would also help to extend the lives of ordinary people .
Lady Northern Feng arrived at Fallen Star Yard at that moment .
Hearing the noise, Feng Wu said goodbye to Grand Secretary Fang .
“Lady Northern Feng, what brings you here?” Because the goddaughter thing wasn’t official yet, Feng Wu still addressed the lady like she normally did .
Lady Northern Feng felt guilty when she saw Feng Wu . She opened her mouth, but didn’t know what to say .
“What happened?” Feng Wu could tell something was wrong .
It had to be something major to trouble the dauntless Lady Northern Feng like this .
“Xiao Wu —” Taking Feng Wu’s hand, Lady Northern Feng smiled bitterly . “I’m so sorry about this . It’s all my fault . ”Read more chapter on vipnovel . com
“Someone at court didn’t agree with you?” Those people were the only ones Feng Wu could think of that could make Lady Northern Feng feel helpless .
Lady Northern Feng was surprised by how perceptive Feng Wu was .
“Since you’ve guessed it, I’ll tell you everything . ”
Lady Northern Feng had faith in Feng Wu’s character and she told Feng Wu about everything that had happened in the imperial palace . She gave the girl a wry smile in the end . “Xiao Wu, what do you think we should do now?”
She added, “I went to the crown prince’s residence first, but His Royal Highness wasn’t there, and neither was Feng . No one knew when they would be back . ”
“No problem . I’ll come with you . ” Feng Wu smiled .
That was how bighearted Feng Wu was . She always took the bull by the horns and wouldn’t be intimidated .
In the imperial palace .
Emperor Wu tried to say something a few times, but decided not to in the end .
With the empress dowager sitting there with a long face, the atmosphere was very tense in the hall .
She was nursing a headache —
The empress dowager felt a throbbing pain behind her eyes and she thought she could see flashing lights . However, at the thought of that jade pendant, she willed herself to sit straight .
Because of that, she was in an even fouler mood .
No one made a sound in Cining Palace .
The servants tried their best to keep their footsteps as quiet as possible .
The empress dowager seemed to be this kind old lady, but when she did get mad… there would be blood .
It had always been this way in the Jun family .
The empress dowager was like this, and so were Emperor Wu and Jun Linyuan .
Quick footsteps came from outside .
Lady Northern Feng skipped the announcement and brought Feng Wu into the palace straightaway .
The mood in the palace was very solemn and the air seemed to have frozen .
Dressed in her formal attire with a golden crown on her head, the empress dowager sat there with an emotionless and stern face .
Next to the empress dowager, Emperor Wu looked equally majestic .
