Chapter 1256: Wang Yunpo
The color of late autumn was gradually replaced by winter, and the wind blowing all day became colder and colder. Dongfang Wan and Dongfang Mu returned to the capital.
As usual, Chu Yan went in and out of Dongfang Family Mansion whenever he had time. The day was just right, and Chu Yan came to her excitedly, saying that he would take her somewhere.
It has been almost four years, and the people in that place have never responded. A while ago, he sent someone to inquire again and got the news that he might come back these days, so he picked this sunny day and took her there.
Bai Zhi was almost dragged into the carriage by him, “Where are you taking me?”
“You’ll know when you get there.” He said, then took off the cloak on his body, and wrapped it around Bai Zhi’s body.
There was a heater in the carriage, so it wasn’t cold at all, but she didn’t return the cloak to him, with a sweet smile on her face: “You seem to be very busy recently.”
Chu Yan smiled and said: “Thanks to you, I found a bunch of people to help me read the booklets, so naturally I was free.”
Bai Zhi sometimes thought, if he will enter the palace in the morning and come back in the evening, it was just as if he were going to work. It was fine as long as he didn’t sleep with those concubines.
But it was unrealistic to think about it. Since ancient times, which emperor didn’t have three palaces and six courtyards. Also, has no group of children?
How can a group of children be born with just a single woman?
Oh, how good it would be if he didn’t become the emperor?
The carriage left the city and came to a low hillside.
“Where is this?” Bai Zhi asked.
Chu Yan pointed to the stone tablet not far away and said: “Wang Yunpo.”
She looked up and saw that there was a tower.
The tower was very tall, at least taller than any buildings she had ever seen in this world.
On a low hillside, there was the tallest building.
“What is that tower?” Buddhist temple? Taoist temple? It doesn’t look like it.
Chu Yan said: “This is the Stargazing Tower, have you heard of it?”
Bai Zhi thought hard for a while, then shook her head: “I’ve never heard of it, what is this stargazing tower for? Could it be to observe the stars?”
Chu Yan snapped his fingers: “That’s right, it’s the one who observes the stars. There is a fortune-teller in the state of Chu who lives in this observatory. It is said that he is proficient in astronomy and geography. There is nothing in the world that he doesn’t know. I came to him before.” He wanted to know how to keep her completely and sever her connection with the other world.
Bai Zhi’s heart beat faster, and she quickly asked, “Did you see him? What did he say?”
Chu Yan shook his head: “I haven’t seen him before. I just found out about you at that time, so I came to him, but he was not there. His apprentice said that he had traveled all over the world and never came back. I sent someone to inquire about him a few days ago. Knowing that the physiognomist may come back shortly, I brought you here.”
Bai Zhi was suddenly a little nervous, so nervous that her palms were sweating.
She has always wanted to stay here. She has relatives and the man she loves here, she doesn’t want to leave again, no matter how sad or difficult, she still wants to stay.
But Lin Yang has never given up there, whether she can stay or not was not up to her to decide. If someone can help her stay and cut off the connection with that side, it would be the best.
The two went up to Wang Yunpo and entered the Stargazing Tower, but they still didn’t find a trace of the physicist, and still, only the apprentice of the physicist received them.
“Didn’t you say he’ll be back in a few days? Where’s the person?” Chu Yan was displeased.
The young apprentice laughed dryly: “Your Majesty, my master did write a letter a month ago stating that he will return, and it should be a few days, but my master did not reply after that. This little one doesn’t know why.”
Bai Zhi smiled lightly and said, “It’s okay, he’ll come back if he wants to. Can I just take a look around?”
