Chapter 943 - Western Jin Imperial Palace (5)
Yunqi's hands that was at his side curled into fists, producing a clear cracking sound .
However, his smile remained clean like the spring wind . Those deep eyes which were looking at Su Luo were still full of soft intoxicating waves .
Su Luo knew, the angrier he got, the gentler the smile on his face would be .
But what did him getting angry have anything to do with her? Su Luo snorted secretly, turning her face away .
But really, seeing Yunqi being infuriated like this, she secretly felt better .
"Enough, I order all of you to step down . " The old emperor impatiently waved his hand .
The old emperor saw that Su Luo also started to leave with everyone else, and he lifted one hand to point at her . He kept a straight face, with his expression imposing and not allowing any opposition, he said: "You, stay . "
Senior concubine Li's good mood that was earned with great difficulty, in an instant, vanished like smoke . She glared at Su Luo resentfully, turned around and left .
Yunqi silently stared at Su Luo for a moment, then led Princess Yulin out of the room with him .
As Princess Yulin was leaving, she continuously looked back, blinking her cute starlike eyes: "Yun Luo, I'll be waiting for you outside . "
The more Yun Luo opposed Third Older Brother, the more she wanted to pair them up . Hmph, the one she recognized as Third Brother's wife, she would never let go .
After everybody had left, the room suddenly quieted down .
The old emperor sat on the half-circular throne made from red sandalwood . His face would suddenly flip from dark to light, profoundly mysterious .
Su Luo carefully seized him up and tried to make guesses, but she was unable to guess his thoughts .
"Sit . " The old emperor pointed to a chair .
That was a position normally reserved only for aristocrats or princes to sit in .
But Su Luo sat down calmly, without a bit of uneasiness .
"Do you know why I asked you alone to stay behind?" The old emperor looked at Su Luo differently from before .
His gaze, as if having passed through time and space, fell on her .
Su Luo slowly shook her head: "Don’t know if Your Majesty has anything to tell me?"
"Your mother…" The old emperor couldn’t help but let out a long sigh with a hissing sound, then asked, "Who is your mother?"
Su Luo's heart stirred slightly .
Why not take advantage of this opportunity to pry out some information?
Combined with the words the old witch Yan Xia said that day, Su Luo's expression remained calm . She took out a dagger from her sleeve and hand it over to him .
This dagger was from the Treasure Storage Pavilion of Eastern Ling Empire .
Su Luo remembered, that day, old witch Yan Xia in her excitement had said that person's name was Yan Hua .
This Yan Hua dagger most likely had something to do with her .
The old emperor accepted the dagger, and in a split second, his entire person was dumbfounded .
He gripped the dagger so tightly, that blue veins popped out on the backs of his large hands .
"It's her, it's her!" The old emperor's entire body quivered in excitement, with eyes focused on that dagger . He carefully looked it over, stroking it gently with excitement .
Su Luo could clearly feel his excitement .
Su Luo quietly sat on the side, waiting for his state of mind to settle down .
Soon, the old emperor also realized his own abnormality . He turned his body around, when he turned back, calmness had already been restored to his gaze .
"This dagger must be left to you by your mother, right?" The old emperor's eyes had soft waves, filled with affection as he looked at Su Luo .
For a split second, Su Luo had some doubts whether the emperor before her was her…… .
In fact, Su Luo simply didn't know, whether the woman called Yan Hua was really her mother… this dagger wasn't given to her by Yan Hua .
But in order to pry out some information, Su Luo's face was taut, dead earnestly, she nodded her head: "Mhm . "
The old emperor's soft gaze stared at her facial features, taking in every detail carefully: "Really similar, really similar . "
