My Husband is a Flower

Chapter 23

There was a breeze that tickled Su Mi’s ears and made her feel itchy. Her mind went blank for a moment, even though the people around her couldn’t hear what Qin Yan was saying. Her cheeks started to blush involuntarily, and her heart was beating like a drum.

She had been angry with Qin Yan for the past few days. Without him, she probably wouldn’t have been able to come to the capital, but she was still mad at him. She was upset that he knew she didn’t want to marry Li Xiuyuan, yet he still intentionally made her fail the selection process and indirectly pushed her towards Li Xiuyuan.

But now, just because of his words, she suddenly felt full of joy again.

With her face still red, Su Mi nodded quickly.

As for what happened after she nodded, Su Mi only vaguely remembered it. She went back to the queue of palace ladies and was taken back to the Imperial Palace by the eunuchs until she returned to her room.

Zhang Yue’er watched Su Mi bury her head in the blanket, tossing and turning and making some noises from time to time, and wondered what was wrong with her.

Qin Yan glanced at Su Mi’s back with his peripheral vision. He had asked that question on a whim, and whether Su Mi answered or not didn’t really matter to him. Despite everything, Su Mi nodded without any hesitation, which caused Qin Yan to view her and even Zhang Huaian in a more favorable light.

All the candidates were taken back by the eunuchs, and now only Emperor Ming Shun and a few officials were left in the imperial garden.

“You… What kind of fallacy is this!”

“Cough…” Zhu Jingyu coughed a few times. Lu Dehai, who was beside him, knew that it was time to rest. They had been outside for a long time today.

“Alright, Prime Minister Zhang, I have agreed to Qin Yan’s choice. I cannot go back on my word. Besides, this is ultimately his private matter. You should not advise him further.”

“Your Majesty…!”

Qin Yan did not give Zhang Huaian a chance to speak. He stood straight in front of him and said, “Thank you, Your Majesty.”

“Everyone, let’s all go back. I’m also tired.”

Lu Dehai bowed his back and watched Zhang Huaian leave angrily. Although he was not reconciled to not placing a chess piece beside Qin Yan, there was still a long way to go. They could only plan for the future.

He turned around and bowed, “Your Majesty, are you going back to the sleeping quarters?”

“Yes, let’s go back.”

When Zhu Jingyu got up, he nodded imperceptibly in Qin Yan’s direction before leaving for Qianqing Palace.

The people in the Imperial Garden suddenly disappeared, and it became quiet.

Feng Bao approached with light footsteps after the Emperor left. “Master, do you have any orders?”

Walking on the cobblestone path, Qin Yan casually broke off a green vine branch that had grown out of place and asked, “When will the rejected court ladies be sent back?”

“Reporting to the Master, the palace cannot accommodate idle people. They will be sent back tomorrow.”

In the inner chamber of the Taiyuan Palace, after a while, Su Mi finally “accepted” that she was going to marry Qin Yan and stuck her head out of the covers. After finally calming down the blush on her face, she was arranging her hair when a knock came at the door.

Zhang Yue’er opened the door, and Su Zhen entered with a bold manner.

“Why are you here?” Su Mi’s face suddenly turned cold when she saw Su Zhen.

“Of course, I came to see my sister.” Su Zhen smiled; there is jealousy in her heart, but she is still saying, “My poor sister has had two engagements broken off and still doesn’t have a good marriage prospect.”

Su Mi snorted, “Su Zhen, would you dare to say that in front of the Lord Qin?”

“I also feel indignant for you. Don’t mistake my good intentions for ulterior motives.”

“I don’t feel indignant about anything,” Su Mi countered every one of her sister’s words, leaving Su Zhen with nothing more to say.

Zhang Yue’er couldn’t stand it any longer. Su Zhen had been grasping at straws to start a conversation. Who could be happy about marrying an eunuch? Just thinking about it made Zhang Yue’er feel sorry for Su Mi. Yet Su Zhen kept bringing it up.

“Sister, I have a headache and need to rest,” Zhang Yue’er said.

Seeing that Zhang Yue’er was leaving, Su Zhen quickly replied, “Alright, then I’ll go. Take care of yourself.”

At the door, Su Zhen looked back at Su Mi and said, “Don’t let it get to you either, sister.”

It was strange that Zhang Yue’er, who had been chosen by the emperor, didn’t feel as uncomfortable as Su Mi did with her eunuch husband.

After Su Zhen left, Zhang Yue’er spoke softly, “Sister, there are many things we can’t choose.”

Su Mi laughed, “Yue Er, I really do feel content.Lord Qin is good to me.”

“But he punished you last time…”

“He didn’t punish me; the injury was something I had previously inflicted on myself,” said Su Mi.

Zhang Yue’er seemed to understand. “Oh, well, it’s still good that you can marry someone you love.”

Su Mi was taken aback by her words. “Love?”

“Isn’t willingly marrying someone the same as loving them?” Zhang Yue’er smiled, her two dimples showing on her pretty face, looking sweet.

    My god ! I can’t wait to see how the marriage will be !😆
    This Suzhen…. I don’t understand what is wrong with her brain. She shouldn’t try to mistreat your only family even more when you are in a foreign place.
