I am The Villain’s Dad - Chapter 68
Chapter 68: The Empress’s face 17
“Yuyang, I know you hate me, but you shouldn’t gamble between the two countries.”
Mingyue couldn’t help but persuade him.
“Hey, your Majesty, don’t say that. I can’t afford this heavy responsibility.”
Su Yuyang gave her a blank look:
“This negotiation is a negotiation, and the people are the people. It doesn’t matter if I don’t return to the palace, just talk about your business.”
After that, Su Yuyang stood up and left without looking back. Sure enough, he and the scumbag were not on the same line, and they often played moral kidnapping for him, so he didn’t take this practice.
Mingyue was speechless, her abacus was good, and she could negotiate the business and bring a beautiful man back. This was a good thing to kill two birds with one stone, but Su Yuyang didn’t cooperate, and she couldn’t help it.
“Father-in-law and mother-in-law, do you want to see Furong and Linglong?”
If the child’s father didn’t cooperate, the children could only pull points.
“We will go to see Linglong. As for Furong, since she has recognized someone else as the father, our family naturally can’t afford it.”
For the granddaughter Linglong , Mother Su and Father Su, of course, wanted to see her. But in front of the Empress, they couldn’t reveal it. What was more, Furong, that granddaughter was the culprit who harmed their son, they had no feeling for that child raised by the Lord.
No matter what, they were children who had never met, could they be compared to their son?
Linglong, that good granddaughter was different, they heard that she was here, and sent food, drink and clothes to wear several times. They couldn’t wait to see her.
“How about this? Five days later, I will hold a banquet for the father-in-law and mother-in-law, so that the two children can also meet their grandparents.”
The Empress didn’t say too much. As soon as she finished speaking, she left directly, as if she was afraid that the two would refuse.
The two looked at each other with helplessness in their eyes.
This empress was indeed full of sincerity towards her son. It was not easy for a majestic Empress to be so honorable.
Moreover, forty years ago, Dale country was almost destroyed. If it weren’t for the Lord family and a group of military commanders, the country would have been destroyed long ago. So at that time, the Lord family was given the title of regent by the first emperor and it was also hereditary.
Although it was said that the Lord family’s matriarch to this generation had lost power, no matter what, the glory was still there.
The Lord family had also been holding a sigh of relief, wanting to earn back their glory, even if it was not earned in name, they would earn real power inside.
So, when the empress ascended the throne, she was pinched by the Lord family. At that time, the empress was young and it was impossible not to rely on ministers.
Slowly it led to the current situation in Dale country.
There were rumors in the past that the empress was afraid and didn’t dare to make the lord unhappy, so she would not spoil the other concubines.
Until Yuyang appeared, everyone understood that the empress was not afraid, but really did not like the men in the palace.
The empress did a lot of things to make up for the Lord family, and was criticized by people.
They couldn’t understand before, until they became close friends with the Empress, they slowly understood how difficult it was for an Empress to sit firmly in that position without any real power.
However, understanding belongs to understanding, and acceptance is absolutely unacceptable.
Just like what Yuyang said, he could understand the reason why the Empress did those things, but he couldn’t accept her doing it.
Therefore, he would never go back to the palace to fight for anything, but he would no longer have any thoughts about the Empress and forgive her.
This was why, after hearing that the Empress had promised the position of noble king, and hinted that the lord would no longer have that power to do anything to him, she did not let go and wanted to take yuyang back to the palace.
“Yuyang’s mother, you said this empress has a deep love for our son…”
Ordinary women would raise several heads when they have a little power. The Empress was still the Empress of a country. With so many good-looking men in the harem, she kept Yuyang and only gave birth to his daughters, which was rare.
“This is called a deep love? Why don’t you say that she doesn’t like it, and she doesn’t want to be like that?”
Mother Su didn’t want to agree with Father Su at all. He didn’t understand women at all!
What power meant to an Empress?
With Yuyang the Empress felt happy and relaxed because he did not represent any power. When the Empress was with him, she didn’t have to be on guard against anything, and she didn’t need to be suspected of what it meant.
It was just easy.
Was it really for love? If she really loved Yuyang, she wouldn’t let him suffer so much in these years.
What she really loved was her own power.
These words, she didn’t say too clearly, but just dialed a little bit. Her man was still too naive and too small. It was better not to let him touch these sinister things.
“When we see our good granddaughter, what should we prepare? How about giving her money or buying something for her!”
Father Su didn’t understand what his wife and son thought, so he didn’t bother to think about it, so he might as well put his mind on her good granddaughter.
“Do as you like.”
Mother Su didn’t care, she would be happy about giving anything to her good granddaughter, because Linglong would be happy just with the thought of her grandmother and grandfather giving it to her.
And for that misbehaving granddaughter Furong, she would not be happy to give anything, because in Furong heart, the real grandfather and grandmother were the Lord family, not them.
When the people of the Dale country got the news that Yuyang’s biological parents were actually the envoys couple from Wa country, it caused an uproar.
The lord even received a letter from his mother, asking him to get along well with Young Master Yuyang and to please the Empress.
Angrily, he crushed the letter in his hand.
If it were not for the letter from his mother the other day saying that the northern side had become a success and that it would not be long before she could return to the dynasty. Then, he would not have to suffer anymore, and he would not have given Furong the fierce medicine so early to prepare for the next thing.
As a result, the Empress has become suspicious now, but the mother’s letter said that something went wrong in the north, and it was not appropriate to act rashly. It was still necessary to please the Empress and stay steady.
He had endured it for so many years, and at the last critical juncture, naturally he couldn’t fail.
After thinking about it a little, he cleaned himself up, asked someone to dress him in a white plain clothes, and personally took a whip and flogged his back with more than a dozen whips. The palace staff around him almost fainted with fear, when did the Lord suffer such suffering?
He didn’t say a word, then stood up, step by step, dripping with blood, and walked towards Mingyue’s room.
With every step, there was a drop of blood on the ground.
“Lord, take this pill before you go.”
His caretaker didn’t stop him, on the contrary, he handed a pill after he whipped himself.
The caretaker knew exactly what he wanted to do, and he couldn’t faint before it was done.
The lord endured the pain forcibly, did not say much, just took the pill.
When Mingyue saw him, he was already pale, and his whole body was in a trance. It would take half an hour to walk from his bedroom to here. Although the blood flow was not fast, he really couldn’t bear to travel such a long distance.
“What are you doing?”
Mingyue’s face changed, which play was this for her?
“Your Majesty, the slave is guilty!”
Without a word, the lord knelt directly on the ground, and then all the white clothes stained with blood appeared in front of Mingyue’s eyes. This visual effect was really shocking, and Mingyue felt a little bit sorry for him, and the reprimand couldn’t be said suddenly.
“What are you trying to do? Anything can be said properly, what is the point of hurting yourself?”
Mingyue stepped forward to help him personally, and called the imperial doctor.
“No, the slave is guilty, please punish me your majesty!”
The lord could not hold on.
“What is your crime, you say! Punish or not, I’ll decide.”
Mingyue didn’t want to fight with him, the harder he moved, the more his blood shed, and she didn’t dare to move him.
“The first sin is to punish Princess Furong, so that she cannot get up now, and the second sin is to be jealous of Su Yuyang, knowing that Furong is deliberately wronged, but still watching him be driven out of the palace, without telling the truth.”
After speaking, the lord began to explain all the reasons.
The final conclusion was that Princess Furong did all those messy things, and he, as the father of Furong, had some connivance, some cover up, and some out of jealousy, he turned a blind eye.
“Your Majesty, please punish me! Exempt my lordship, take Young Master Yuyang back to the palace and let him raise Princess Furong himself.”
With a single word, Mingyue’s heart moved greatly.
Yes, she invited Master Yuyang back to the palace, but he didn’t reply, maybe he was still mad at Furong and the Lord.
If the two of them personally apologized and asked him to come back, maybe he would agree? Furthermore, if Furong could return to Yuyang’s side, wouldn’t Yuyang open his heart and never get angry with her again?
As for the Lord family, there was nothing to worry about!
The Lord was here today to apologize, but not because he has received the news? The Lord family was trying to take off her imperial crown? It was still very early.
Since they were willing to stay low and be small, then she would save the lord’s life.
“Get up, these are not your faults. You are also a kind father. It’s just that this is the crime of poor parenting. I still want to punish you. I will punish you to recuperate in the palace for three months. A while later the imperial doctor came over to give you a good diagnosis, you rest here, and wait for me to accompany you back to the palace later.”
Mingyue’s operation of slapping a sweet date made the Lord both grateful and happy, and the two of them said some warm words.
Both sides got the happy results that they wanted, and then they went well. Although the lord committed self-harm and went to the Empress room to plead guilty, the Empress personally accompanied him and sent him back to his palace and also had dinner in his palace before leaving.
The meaning of this was very clear.
Everyone in the palace understood that the Lord’s game of pleading guilty worked. The Empress did not punish him, what was three months of closed-door punishment? Was it supposed to take that long to recuperate?
And also got your majesty’s pity, not earned?
Sure enough, the lord was the lord, and he was still the first person in the harem…
Originally, the caretaker Yang next to Furong was still waiting to see the changes this time, deciding whether he should inform the Empress or not, but after seeing the situation, he decided to talk about it.
