Chapter 563: Pleasing Her Majesty (18)Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
As Ning Furong prepared for her wedding, Ming Shu became even worse. Sometimes, she would even be late for the morning sessions.
The officials heard that Junjue was dominating the imperial harem. He could get anything he wanted.
This made the officials extremely worried and anxious. They all suspected that Junjue seduced their empress.
Booklets started pouring at Ming Shu.
Ming Shu scolded all the people that sent her the booklets. If they still dared to send booklets to her, she would drag them out and beat them. If they still continued, very good, they could retire and go back to farm their land.
The main lead expressed his innocence.
He didn’t do anything!
Don’t give him the t.i.tle of someone who brought disaster and calamity to the country and the people. He couldn’t afford it.
“Your Majesty, these few people can be used.” Junjue placed the list that he circled in front of Ming Shu.
Ming Shu pa.s.sed it to Lianxin without even looking at it. “Pa.s.s this to Lord Zhou.”
Junjue’s mouth corners twitched. “Your Majesty, are you not afraid that I will place my own people in it?”
Ming Shu sucked her fruit preserves. Her voice was sweet like honey. “You are welcome to rebel.”
Junjue: “…” Do you think that rebelling is a game? That anyone can rebel?
Are you aware that you are the empress!
Is this a position to fool around with?
Junjue was so angry he wanted to just explode. His expression kept changing. “Your Majesty, don’t you think that you should explain to me why you pushed me into the limelight?”
When did I ever seduce you?
Every night, they would cover themselves with the blanket and chit-chat with each other. She was so cold to him.
Ming Shu thought for a while. “It is to give them a valid reason to rebel.”
I am so thoughtful.
Of course, the main reason was that she wanted to pamper him. It was a rare opportunity. Not all the worlds would allow her to be a foolish empress so blatantly.
Should I praise you for being wise?
Not only do you urge them to rebel, you even give them the military power. Now, you are giving them a reason to rebel.
Are you really afraid that they will not rebel!
Why don’t you just give up your throne? Why are you still their empress?
Junjue walked toward Ming Shu and went to her side. He sat on the handle of the chair and looked down on her. He lowered his voice. “Your Majesty, are you not afraid that something will happen to me?”
Ming Shu hugged her fruit preserves and leaned back. She asked vigilantly, “Will it?”
Why are you sitting so close to me!
What do you want, to grab my snacks!
“I am under your protection now. Because of your pampering, many people might view me as the throne in their flesh. Your Majesty, do you think that something will happen to me?”
This crazy person wanted to kill him using such a method… why didn’t he think about this last time!
Junjue felt that he got a new skill.
“You will be fine.”
Ming Shu smiled sharply. It was a confident and arrogant smile. There were even sparkles in her eyes.
Firstly, he was not a normal person. She was not sure what tricks he had up his sleeves but she knew that he could protect his life and change certain things.
Secondly, his abilities were good too. Even if he seemed weak now, the strength he had would show up at certain times without him noticing.
Lastly, even if the two reasons above were not enough, she could protect him.
“You trust me so much?” Junjue sneered. “I am just an emperor of a nation that collapsed.”
“Haven’t I given you real power now? Look, you are a real power-holder of the Purple Moon Nation.
Junjue: “…” Like h.e.l.l I’m real!
Take back your booklets. You want to coax me into settling your booklets for you, right!
I don’t want to!
Ming Shu stuffed a pile of booklets into his arms and prepared to leave. Junjue let go of the booklets and they fell to the ground.

Junjue pulled Ming Shu back. Ming Shu fell onto her throne and Junjue pinned her to prevent her from getting up.
The night was dark.
He walked past the imperial guards and went to a secluded area. He stopped in the darkness and waited.
After a while, a shadow landed silently.
Junjue was hidden in the shadows. Only his voice could be heard. It was indifferent and cold. “What?”
The shadow said, “Master asked me to inform you to think of a way to feed this to the empress.”
An item was pa.s.sed to Junjue. Junjue didn’t take it.
“I don’t care what you all want to do, but don’t let it affect me.” I have no interest in partic.i.p.ating in a rebellion or in resurrecting my nation.
“Your Majesty, do not forget who destroyed Afterglow.” The t.i.tle seemed to be reminding him of his status as the emperor of Afterglow.
The shadow placed the item on the ground. “Think about it carefully.”
Then, the shadow disappeared in the blink of an eye, just like how it came.
Junjue looked at the item on the ground and gave a cold smile.
The wind was cold. It blew onto his clothes and they fluttered in the wind. After a long time, he patted his clothes as though he was dusting something dirty away and walked back to Yangxin Hall without any hesitation.
The shadow left the palace and ran all the way until he reached a loft.
A man stood by the window looking at the moon outside.
The moonlight elongated the figure of the man and his shadow stretched on the floor of the room. It looked so lonely.
The shadow opened the door and half-kneeled on the ground. “Master, I have already handed the thing to him.”
Ye Mochen nodded his head. “What was his reaction?”
The shadow hesitated before saying his opinion. “I think that… he didn’t seem very willing to do it.”
Ye Mochen turned around. “His brother did it for Dongyu, he did it for Dongqing. Ha… the women from Purple Moon Nation are really impressive.”
The shadow didn’t carry on the conversation.
Ye Mochen said after a long time, “Since it is like this, do not place hope on him anymore.”
