Chapter 835: Meeting Lin I an (3)
Minister Xu of the Ministry of official personnel affairs was from the Royal faction and also a supporter of the Crown Prince, so he was the most suitable person to be summoned.
Minister Xu was dressed in casual clothes, and the cool breeze in the garden brought with it a faint fragrance of flowers. He smiled and said, ‘
“There’s no big mystery in this matter. A while ago, the lucky Shu Shi of the Hanlin Academy sent a few secret letters to celebrate the new year. They were left behind by High Duke Cao.”
He immediately told the Crown Prince everything.
The crown prince’s breathing was a little hurried as he continued to ask,
“”Where is the secret letter? Were there more? There must be more. High Duke Cao has held great power for so many years, it’s impossible for him to only have a few letters.”
If he could get those secret letters, his power would increase greatly, and his position as the Crown Prince would be more stable.
“I think so too. It’s. pity that Xu Qi. an is Wei Yuan’s man …” Minister Xu smiled and did not continue.
The crown prince’s thoughts suddenly became active. Just because the Royal faction couldn’t get it, it didn’t mean that he couldn’t get it.
Now that he thought about it, the letter from Lin ‘an had an effect. Otherwise, why would Xu Qi’ an use his cousin to pass the secret letter to chief advisor Wang?
Xu Qi ‘an didn’t reply to him to avoid suspicion. After all, his identity was sensitive.
I have to go to shaoyin Palace and let Lin. an find. way to contact Xu Qi. an. Maybe I can get more secret letters from him … The Crown Prince only felt that the wine was too light and his butt was on pins and needles.
He patiently chatted with Minister Xu for a while more before sending him out of the palace.
He immediately turned to shaoyin Palace.
After lunch, Lin ‘an took an afternoon nap. She sat up in her unlined garment and stretched her waist lazily.
In the hot summer, her clothes were thin. Although she wasn’t a big-hearted woman, her scale was not small. However, compared to huaiqing, it was a sad story.
When she stretched her waist, a small section of her snow-white and thin waist was revealed.
Her snake-like waist had a beautiful curve, and her two waists were sexy and cute.
With the service of the palace maids, he put on a complicated and gorgeous Palace dress, rinsed his mouth with tea, and cleaned his face. Lin ‘an waved a beauty fan and sat in the pavilion in a daze.
The palace maid who had been patted by Xu Qi ‘an was reading the script. While she was breathing, she stole a glance at the princess.
Compared to the depression of the past few days, His Highness had recovered a lot recently, but he was still a little listless.
“Say, if the lady in the book is not from a rich family, would the poor scholar still like her?” Lin an gently waved his fan, looking into the distance in a daze, and asked suddenly.
“Probably. After all, the scholar eloped with her,” the palace maid replied after some thought.
Lin ‘an shook his head and said softly,”but someone told me that the scholar deliberately eloped with a rich family’s daughter. This way, he didn’t need to give a sky-high betrothal gift and could marry a wife as beautiful as a flower.” A truly responsible man should not be like this.”
“Then what should I do?” the palace maid asked.
Lin an raised his head and said somewhat sadly, ‘”‘1 don’t know. I used to think that he was like that …”
At this moment, a guard walked in from outside and stopped not far away. He cupped his fists and said, “”Your Highness, Hanlin Academy’s SHU ji shi requests to see you on New Year’s Day.”
Lin ‘an was stunned for a moment. After a few seconds, he remembered that Xu niannian was that person’s cousin. She frowned slightly. She had never interacted with that Shu ji shi, what matter could he have to see her for?
“Go and bring him into the palace,” he said after a few seconds of silence.
After a quarter of an hour, Xu Qi ‘an, who was wearing a sky-blue brocade robe, cloud-covering boots, and a golden crown to tie up his hair, entered the living room with the guards of shaoyin Palace.
He sat upright behind the table, straightened his small waist, and ordered the palace maid to serve tea in a serious manner. He said in a flat tone, “”Why does Lord Xu want to see this Prince?”
