Dressed As a Consort In Ancient Times - Chapter 96
Chapter 95 – Extra Four
Yuxuanhe ten years.
This year, the goose feather snow has been lingering for more than ten days. The roofs are covered with snow, and the ice edges under the eaves can be touched with one’s hand, which shows how severe the weather is.
In the extremely cold capital city, every household has already burned charcoal fires to keep warm, and there are few pedestrians on the streets, only a few people who are making a living are still walking around yelling.
In the majestic and majestic palace, the gates of all the palaces and courtyards are also closed, and the lord’s wife and eunuchs are not willing to go out. Even if the snow scene outside is pleasant, it is rare to see anyone outside to enjoy the scenery.
It was in such an icy and snowy place where people were almost frozen to death, but there were three or two old eunuchs surrounded in the corner of the cold palace.
Several people squatted down, not knowing what they were looking at.
The leading **** looked around. This place is close to the Leng Palace, and there are few people here on weekdays, let alone when it is so cold now, you can’t even see a ghost.
With more confidence, Eunuch Li stretched out his rough and thin hand to a little girl who was huddled in the corner.
The girl was only wearing a warm cotton padded jacket, and the socks on her feet had several holes, which couldn’t stop the biting cold outside.
Her little face was flushed with cold, but she couldn’t hide her clean and dusty face.
Eunuch Li’s shriveled hands grabbed her calf, causing her to shrink back in fright.
But there was already a cold wall behind her, and she had no way to retreat.
“Little princess, don’t be afraid, the weather is so cold, the old slaves are here to help you warm up…”
Little Jiang Ying was terrified, she knew what these people wanted to do.
She tried her best to push away the person who was leaning towards her, and tears welled up in her eyes, and she couldn’t stop it.
But she didn’t dare to call for help, no one came here, and yelling would only make these people more cruel.
She swallowed all the cries forcibly, and she kicked and beat Eunuch Li desperately, but she was still young after all, and her strength was not as strong as him.
Pushing to no avail, she could only beg for mercy: “Eunuch Li…I’m not cold, I’m not cold…Can you please don’t…don’t touch me…”
But these old eunuchs lacked something, their minds were already gloomy, coupled with the fact that they had been doing the heaviest work for many years and were beaten and scolded from time to time, their hearts had already become extreme and gloomy.
They couldn’t find the punching bag, so their eyes fell on the little princess who grew up in the cold palace.
Although she was of royal blood, because her mother and concubine were implicated, and finally died of illness in the cold palace, no one remembered that there was a fifth princess with a thousand honors here.
At first they only dared to touch her timidly, but when they found out that the emperor had really forgotten about the princess, they became bolder and started to hug her.
Seeing that the fifth princess grew more and more lovely, they felt even more unbearable.
Even in the cold snow, I don’t want to let her go.
Jiang Ying was forced to open her eyes, and saw a scene that she would never forget in her life. She screamed out of fright, and kept patting the person on her body.
But Eunuch Li slapped her twice, which made stars appear in her eyes, and she almost passed out.
Little Jiangying’s mouth was already dripping with blood, but the three present ignored her and continued to torment her.
She lay in the snow, looking blankly at the snowflakes fluttering around her.
The whiteness all over the floor almost dazzled her eyes, she still doesn’t understand why her father doesn’t care about her, why she is also a princess, but she has to live such a difficult life, and even has to be tortured by these old eunuchs…
Not reconciled, she began to struggle again, this time she was lucky and kicked Eunuch Li down in one fell swoop, she didn’t have time to put on the cotton coat, so she ran away quickly before they could react.
But she was young, had not had enough food and clothing for many years, and was much thinner than ordinary children. Eunuch Li grabbed her by the braids within a few steps.
“You dare to kick me?!” Eunuch Li looked gloomy, threw Jiang Ying to the ground, and punched and kicked her hard…
When Jiang Ying was in so much pain that she could only curl up and could no longer make a sound—
“What are you doing?!” A childish voice sounded, followed by
The last few maids and nuns rushed over and pulled away the three old eunuchs who were acting mischievously.
“Ah!” Even the well-informed nanny was shocked by the scars all over her body when she saw the girl lying on the snow.
She hurriedly took off the cloak she was wearing, wrapped it around the little girl, and hugged her pitifully.
In a daze, Jiang Ying saw a girl doll who was younger than her walking over arrogantly. She wanted to tell her to hurry up and not fall into the hands of these old eunuchs.
But he found that **** Li fell to his knees on the ground tremblingly, and kept shouting: “Princess, please spare me! Princess, please spare me!”
Is this female doll… also a princess?
It seems to be very favored…
At this moment, Jiang Ying was stunned, as if she felt the difference between her and other sisters for the first time.
She looked at the little sister and asked the reason of the matter clearly in a few words, the aura radiating from her whole body almost fascinated her eyes.
She also wanted to be such a person.
With the love of my father and the endless power, will I no longer have to eat and wear warm, and don’t have to be beaten and tortured by the old **** anymore?
Such thoughts flashed through her mind, and then she fainted completely after being cold and injured.
Jiang Libai called the guards behind him, dragged down the three old eunuchs who committed crimes below, and told them to punish them severely.
As soon as the noisy voice disappeared, Jiang Libai turned her head, raised her chin, and looked at the person who had passed out.
“Mommy, is she my sister too? Why is she dressed like this? She’s being bullied?”
She is only six or seven years old now, and she still doesn’t quite understand the meaning behind whether she has the emperor’s favor or not.
But when she saw this sister’s pitiful appearance, she felt pity for her, and she let the nanny carry her back to Qingyang Palace.
Along the way, she heard Mammy relentlessly admonishing her that this matter should not be spread, so she obediently obeyed, and even passed the news to Imperial Doctor Zhao because she was a little uncomfortable.
Doctor Zhao rushed over anxiously, but saw the Seventh Princess in the middle of the hall with her round eyes wide open, and smiled embarrassedly at him, “Oh, my sister is injured, come and help her take a look… But don’t tell anyone…”
She tugged on the sleeve of Imperial Physician Zhao and brought him to the side hall. When she came to her sister who was still in a coma, she pouted: “Here, why don’t you show her quickly.”
Doctor Zhao heard that the seventh princess called the **** the bed her sister, so she didn’t know her identity for a while.
But the Seventh Princess invited him so solemnly, and the little girl was covered in injuries, she looked really pitiful.
As a doctor, he did not refuse.
Jiang Libai sat on the chair, her short legs couldn’t reach the ground, and she kept dangling in mid-air.
After waiting for a long time, she saw Imperial Physician Zhao put away the medicine box.
She jumped off the wooden chair and ran over: “How is it? My sister is okay?”
Although the seventh princess is still young, Imperial Physician Zhao does not want to lie to her.
After briefly telling her about the situation of the little **** the bed, he sighed: “The skin injuries are all fine, and you’ll be fine if you take good care of them. But… But her two feet have been broken by the violent force, even if it is The injury is healed, I’m afraid I won’t be able to walk again in the future…”
Can’t walk anymore? !
For the little Jiang Libai, this is simply terrible news.
The circles of her eyes turned red like a bunny, “Can’t you cure her?”
Doctor Zhao shook his head: “It’s hard.”
In Jiang Libai’s heart, Imperial Physician Zhao is the most skilled person in the entire Imperial Hospital. Even if he said that it can’t be cured, it must be true…
She wiped the tears from her face, walked to the side of the bed, and stretched out her chubby little hand to touch her leg, “What should I do? Your feet can’t be healed, and you won’t be able to walk in the future…”
As soon as she wiped away her tears, a message came from Chunxi at the door, saying that her mother and concubine had come to visit her.
She was so frightened that she quickly wiped away all the tears, and then pulled the quilt on the girl’s body hard.
Pull up and cover her entire head.
Seeing that not even a strand of hair was exposed, Jiang Libai took the hand of the mother and welcomed her mother and concubine in.
As soon as Concubine Yuan Gui stepped into the hall, she hugged her daughter and looked around, “Jianing, good boy, what’s wrong with you?”
Jiang Libai’s mind was not on her concubine mother at all, after shaking her head casually, her big round eyes glanced at the couch from time to time.
Concubine Yuan Gui noticed her abnormality and also looked over.
After staring at it for a while, she walked over and lifted off the thick quilt.
After listening to everyone’s explanation, Concubine Yuan Gui also knew the identity of that little girl, the daughter of the deceased Liu Jieyu.
Liu Jieyu’s death was embarrassing, and the emperor didn’t want to give her any more dignity, so he deliberately forgot about their daughter Jiang Ying.
Seeing Jiang Ying’s deep scars, Concubine Yuan Gui couldn’t bear it.
Since the person was discovered by Jianing and saved by Jianing, she just pretended not to know.
“Jianing, that’s your fifth sister, Jiang Ying.”
Jiang Libai nodded ignorantly: “Will the mother concubine blame Erchen for meddling in his own business?”
Concubine Yuan Gui smiled: “Concubine Mother should pretend she doesn’t know about this matter. Let her leave your Qingyang Palace after recovering from her injuries… Concubine Mother will arrange a place for her to live in.”
In this way, Jiang Ying temporarily lived in Jiang Libai’s side hall to recuperate.
She woke up later, and after learning that her legs could no longer walk, she lowered her head, and no one knew what she was thinking.
Afraid that she would be sad, Jiang Libai took her hand, “Don’t be afraid, Fifth Sister, this is a wheelchair specially made for you. From now on, you can go anywhere with it!”
Looking at her cautious smile, Jiang Ying felt an inexplicable thought in her heart, and after freeing her little hand at will, she hummed in a low voice.
Seeing that she had accepted this fact, Jiang Libai pushed the wheelchair around in front of her, “Wherever Fifth Sister wants to go in the future, I will push the wheelchair for you!”
Seeing Jiang Ying twitching the corners of her mouth, Xiao Jianing, who still can’t read people’s hearts, thought she was being amused by him, so she laughed even more happily.
In the past, she was always alone, and other sisters and sisters were far away from her, and they didn’t like to play with her.
At first she was very sad, not knowing what she did wrong.
But after more and more temptations were rejected, Jiang Libai also became arrogant, and no longer wanted to play with other sisters and sisters.
But it’s all right now!
She has a fifth sister!
From now on, she will play with Fifth Sister, help her push the wheelchair, and take her to eat all kinds of delicious food…
The days passed day by day, even after Jiang Ying recovered from her injury and was arranged to live in another palace, Jiang Libai often went to see her.
Sometimes he would bring her some of the most beautiful flowers in the imperial garden in spring, sometimes he would bring her the very famous roast duck outside the palace, and sometimes he would sit beside her empty-handed, like a little girl. He sighed like an adult.
In the countless times of contact, holding hands, hugging, and chatting, Jiang Ying slowly lost her heart.
In her darkest days, Jiang Libai is like a ray of light, illuminating her whole life, letting her know that not everyone in this world hates her and abandons her…
She began to understand her own intentions slowly, and looked forward to Jiang Libai’s every visit more and more.
But she also realized that their identities are not tolerated by outsiders.
Therefore, the desire for power in her heart became more and more serious. After getting acquainted with the third prince Jiang Heng by accident, she slowly conspired with him secretly…
In order to get to know Xiao Qi better, Jiang Ying deliberately picked out a hidden guard, and stuffed it into Qingyang Hall silently.
And in order to increase Xiao Qi’s recognition of the mirror-grinding addiction, she also instructed the hidden guard to find more books for Xiao Qi about love stories between women…
Just when she thought everything was going her way, an accident happened.
Until Xiao Qi married someone else, she still couldn’t accept this fact.
Later, seeing Xiaoqi getting closer and closer to the man named Gu Yun, and their relationship getting better and better, and even having a child, she was so jealous that she was about to go crazy.
She couldn’t wait any longer, she must take Xiao Qi back to her side when she fell in love with Gu Yun completely.
Wave after wave of hidden guards were sent out, but failed to kill Gu Yun, and even injured Xiao Qi the last time.
At that moment, she sat in the dark study, asking herself over and over again, is this what she wants?
Guilt, pain, despair…all the emotions were superimposed, and she hurt herself angrily.
It seemed that only by doing so, could some of the torment in her heart be relieved.
However, even at this moment, she has already withdrawn from her heart, and she is unwilling to continue to implement their plan.
But Jiang Heng is not a good stubble, and the people under them have been lying in ambush for many years, just waiting for the day of success.
So she continued to slowly advance their plan as usual.
It wasn’t until she finally learned that it was Jiang Heng who designed Xiao Qi to lose her virginity, and it was Jiang Heng who played tricks behind the scenes to abduct Xing Xing.
She knows what the stars mean to Xiao Qi.
She didn’t want to hurt Xiao Qi anymore, and she didn’t want to see her cry again, so she completely stopped thinking about taking the throne.
After imprisoning Jiang Heng, she took Xingxing back.
Seeing the little doll’s soft and sticky face, her smiling face resembled Xiao Qi’s when she was a child, she was both happy and relieved.
Finally, after coaxing Xing Xing and calling her mother, she felt that she didn’t have to pursue anything anymore.
Xiaoqi is doing well, and Gu Yun treats her well.
When fleeing the capital, she ordered Qiu Ju to feed the emperor the antidote.
In the end, she decided to let the emperor go, not because he was her father, but…Xiao Qi respected and cared about him very much.
If she can make Xiao Qi happy forever, she can give up anything, even the hatred she had since childhood.
Later, in order to avoid being pursued by General Zhao, after dismissing the guards around her, she asked Qiu Ju to find a female corpse with the same handicap.
Throwing the torch into the house, watching the raging fire, she opened her thin lips and said silently: “Xiaoqi.”
“I wish you happiness.”
“See you again.”
