Chapter 941 – Western Jin imperial palace (3)
The little Princess Yulin since being young, a children's words carried no harm. She truly dared to say whatever she wanted.
Senior concubine Li's complexion immediately stiffened, appearing unsightly.
"Your Majesty, you look at this little princess…" It's not that senior concubine Li love to bicker with the little girl, but it's truly because the words the little girl said were too insulting.
What's with she wasn't even worthy of carrying Yun Luo's shoes? She's the magnificent great senior concubine, the assistant manager of the imperial harem!
Outside of senior concubine Li's expectations, this time the old emperor did not defend her!
The old emperor apathetically tilted a glance at senior concubine Li: "Yulin is still young, you're even bickering with her?"
Implying that she wasn't virtuous and magnanimous enough.
Inwardly, senior concubine Li's heart become extremely angry. Both her hands gripped onto her handkerchief tenaciously. Grinding her rear molars, she squeezed out a stiff smile:
"Yes, your concubine know she is wrong…"
Finished speaking, she turned and glared ferociously at Su Luo.
It was all because of this loathsome girl of unknown origin! If it weren't for Su Luo's appearance that threatened senior concubine Li's position, why would she herself fall into such an embarrassing and sorry circumstance?
Senior concubine Li always pushed the blame onto someone else, she would never think that she may have commit any wrongdoing.
Su Luo was being glared at until she felt uncomfortable. Who did she trick, or provoke? This senior concubine Li really liked to pick the pushover to pinch.
However, she was merely a powerless senior concubine. In Su Luo's eyes, she was someone to ignore and disregard, therefore Su Luo did not feel like taking any notice of her.
However, the more Su Luo ignored her, the more she felt she could climbed all over her.
After the tension in the atmosphere eased, this Senior Concubine Li, suddenly, her eyebrows moved, a plan came out from her heart.
"Your majesty, your concubine, have a proposal. Don't
Don't know if I should say it or not?" The senior concubine smiled seductively without restraint. Her every frown and every smile were gentle and beautiful.
Previously, the old emperor had embarrassed her. Now, he couldn't criticise her again, so he indifferently asked: "What's your proposal?"
One could only see senior concubine laugh with 'hehe' sounds, that pair of long and narrow almond-shaped eyes swept back and forth between Su Luo and Yunqi.
After attracting enough curiosity and attention, only then did she smile and say, "Your Majesty, don't you think His Highness, the third prince, seem too lonely?"
The old emperor had ten sons altogether. The five above besides Yunqi had all taken in enough main concubine and side concubines to fill the entire sky.
Only Yunqi was still a
still a single, unmarried person.
Senior concubine Li said while smiling, "Your Majesty, although His Highness, the third prince, is in no hurry to get married. However he should at least have a concubine in this residence? Even if Your Majesty isn't thinking for Third Prince's sake, you ought to think for the late Empress Yuan."
Senior Concubine Li currently was the most favorite concubine in the imperial harem. She had originally boasted herself as having an incomparable appearance, but after seeing Su Luo, she then knew what was called to feel ashamed from being inferior.
Adding to that, she could not distinguish clearly the old emperor's expression, thus she took Su Luo to be her greatest threat.
If her invite doesn't work, then she would send her away. This was senior concubine Li's way of thinking.
However the moment she said those words, everyone present immediately became quiet.
The corners of Su Luo's mouth hooked even more into a faint sneer.
Give her to Yunqi as a concubine? Only senior concubine Li could say this kind of insult out loud.
However, out loud.
However, at this time, the little Princess Yulin's pair of quick-witted, beautiful eyes suddenly looked at senior concubine Li like she was looking at an idiot.
Yun Luo didn't even want the main concubine position, yet you're suggesting her to be a mere side concubine? Has this senior concubine Li stayed in the imperial harem for so long that she's become foolish?
The emperor's eyebrows wrinkled in a nearly undetectable manner.
Yunqi was even more speechless to the extreme.
All around was absolute silence.
For a moment, the atmosphere was extremely strange.
Senior concubine Li didn't know what taboo these words of hers had violated. Seeing everyone was all dumbfounded, she couldn't help but force out a hollow laugh.
"Yun Luo's background is a palace maid. Giving her to Third Prince, His Highness, as a concubine is indeed somewhat of a social climb… However, she's this beautiful. Third Prince, His Highness, wouldn't decline, right?" Senior concubine Li smiled toward Yunqi.
