Sign-In Buddha's Palm - Chapter 94
Chapter 94: Chang’an Fireworks.
Edited by: Mochiusagi
At this time, it was the Shangyuan Festival. Fireworks were blooming all over the sky and it set off the atmosphere of Chang’an City.
On the Stargazing Building.
Emperor Tang invited his officials to gather here, drinking wine and enjoying the sky full of fireworks.
The princes were also there, including Crown Prince Li Sheng.
“I don’t know if I can still see the next one…”
Emperor Tang looked at the sky and muttered to himself.
“His Majesty is bound to live forever, why wouldn’t His Majesty be able to see the next Festival…?”
The Ministers hurriedly knelt on the ground and dare not look up.
Emperor Tang glanced at them and a touch of ridicule appeared on his face: “All of the Ministers are right, I was just being emotional.”
“Yunyun, I feel that Emperor Father’s body has deteriorated again…” Crown Prince Li Sheng peeked at Emperor Tang and whispered to Su Yueyun next to him.
When Su Yueyun heard this, her pretty face changed slightly. She shook her head and said: “You shouldn’t say this outside in the future.”
Crown Prince Li Sheng lightly sighed.
How can he not know this?
The Ministers were saying that His Majesty will live long, but he felt that His Majesty’s body has deteriorated…
If this was to be heard by others and spread it out, it will have a great influence on his position as Crown Prince.
It’s just that Li Sheng really cares about Emperor Tang’s body.
Although Li Sheng has only known Emperor Tang for a few years, he could feel that Emperor Tang is sincere towards him.
And since His Majesty made him the Crown Prince, he obviously wanted to give him the throne.
Emperor Tang had treated him with kindness and even grandness by planning to make him his successor, so how could Li Sheng have the heart to be like those Minister’s, openly deceiving Emperor Tang?
“His Majesty knows this better than anyone else.”
Su Yueyun hesitated for a while and whispered: “Who is loyal to the court and who is pretending, His Majesty knows this better than you.”
“For now, take care of your own affairs and try to stabilize your position as the Crown Prince. As for other things, don’t think too much, because it’s useless even if you think about it.”
Su Yueyun glanced around, lowered her voice and said quickly.
Since she and Li Sheng entered the East Palace, Emperor Tang often came to visit them. Although Su Yueyun didn’t talk much with Emperor Tang, she could also see that he was already half a foot inside the coffin. Moreover, she believes that Emperor Tang knows everything about what’s going on in the Court.
Soon, Emperor Tang seemed to lose interest and ended the gathering.
The officials went back to their homes. Su Yueyun hesitated for a while, before finally moving towards Li Sheng and said, “My parents are waiting for me, so I won’t go back to the Palace.”
“Okay.” Li Sheng nodded.
It was the Shangyuan Festival and since Su Yueyun wanted to go back to the Su Residence to meet her family, how could he stop her?
“I won’t go, so as to not disturb you.” Li Sheng said considerately.
He is now the Crown Prince. If he returned to the Su Residence with Su Yueyun, the Su Family would not have a good time celebrating the festival.
After the two separated, Su Yueyun looked towards the Su Residence.
Since Su Yueyun was conferred as the Crown Prince’s wife, the Su Family had become a relative of the Emperor, and they have been given a mansion by Emperor Tang.
The mansion is now the new Su Residence.
“Dad and Mom, I’m back.”
Su Yueyun walked towards the Su Residence.
“Yun’er, you are finally back. I have been waiting for you for a long time.” The Su Family Patriarch, Su Shimin walked over and said with a smile.
Mother Su Mu also stood up with a smile on her face.
“Sister, you are back.”
Her two brothers also came and greeted her.
They then sat down and were ready to eat, chatting amongst each other.
“Sister, His Majesty asked you to go to the Stargazing Building to enjoy the fireworks. It must be beautiful, right?” Su Chenghao, the Eldest Son of the Su Family, said with envy.
The Stargazing Building is the tallest building in Chang’an City. According to legend, you can see the entire Chang’an City from it and capture all the beautiful scenery in your eyes.
Su Yueyun shook her head: “I think it is the most beautiful to watch the fireworks from here…”
“Okay Chenghao, your little sister finally came back. You are the older brother, don’t always mention these things.”
Su Shimin gave Su Chenghao a stare.
“Father, it’s okay.”
Su Yueyun said with a smile.
“That’s right, Sister.” At this time, Second Brother Su Chengyu suddenly asked curiously, “Do you like that jade pendant? I think it’s quite ordinary… “
Su Chengyu glanced at the jade pendant on Su Yueyun’s waist, with a face full of confusion.
In his opinion, that piece of jade pendant is extremely ordinary and worth at most ten yuan. Not to mention that Su Yueyun is now the Crown Prince’s wife, she is also the daughter of the Su Family, she can’t be wearing such jewelry.
“This jade pendant…”
Su Yueyun looked down and shook her head: “I don’t know why I like it, but when I first saw it, I really wanted to keep it.”
Su Yueyun paused, and continued: “I feel that as long as I have this jade pendant, I can always be safe and happy.”
Su Yueyun’s words made Su Chengyu look helpless: “Sister, you have been deceived. There is no jade pendant in this world that can keep people safe and happy…”
Su Chengyu was about to say a few more words, but when he saw Su Shimin fiercely staring at him, he shrank back and did not dare continue speaking.
The family ate and chatted.
After finishing the meal, Su Chenghao suggested going outside and taking a look at the market in Chang’an City.
This proposal was obviously approved by the family. Their entire group then walked out of the Su Residence and came to the market. While watching the fireworks blooming in the night, they watched the vendors on the side of the road.
“If only Third Brother could be here, it would be great…”
Su Yueyun’s expression dropped significantly.
The Shangyuan Festival is meant to reunite the whole family, no one should be missing, but their Su Family was obviously missing Su Qin.
“I told the County Guard to go negotiate with the Shaolin Temple, but then there were new rumours that the Shaolin Temple has an Arhat…”
Su Shimin sighed softly.
Originally, when Su Yueyun became the Crown Prince’s wife, their Su Family was next to the thigh of the Imperial Family, and Su Shimin was planning to get Su Qin out of the Shaolin Temple.
He asked the County Guard for his help, and the latter even patted his chest, assuring him that everything would be okay.
But then, rumors about the Shaolin Temple having an Arhat suddenly appeared and that he had killed the Demon Lord in one fell swoop. Ever since then, the County Guard never mentioned this again.
Although Su Shimin was unwilling, there was nothing he could do about it.
He is also a Martial Artist and knows the meaning of an Arhat.
At this moment, even Emperor Tang would not try and mess with the Shaolin Temple, let alone trifling a County Guard.
“There will always be a way…”
Su Yueyun barely smiled and said.
While walking, Su Yueyun suddenly slipped. She was distracted, so she totally forgot to regain her balance and was about to fall to the ground.
Su Shimin immediately noticed this, so he hurried forward and prepared to support Su Yueyun.
A slender figure was ahead of him and “grabbed” Su Yueyun in front of Su Shimin.
“Be careful when you walk.”
This figure was covered with light. No matter if it was Su Yueyun or the rest of the Su Family, they couldn’t see the figure’s specific appearance.
After this figure stabilized Su Yueyun, it moved towards the opposite direction of the Su Family.
Su Yueyun subconsciously wanted to thank the figure.
But then the next moment.
Su Yueyun was stunned as a sense of intimacy rose from the depths of her blood.
“Wait a minute.”
Su Yueyun turned around and shouted towards the figure who was about to leave.
Su Shimin, along with the rest of the Family, saw Su Yueyun’s reaction and also looked towards the figure, puzzled.
The figure paused, seemingly hesitating, but then finally turned around slowly.
Under the stars and fireworks, nothing more beautiful can be imagined.
The figure slowly turned around, moved towards Su Yueyun and the others then smiled.
“Sister, long time no see.”
