The Emperor on Top, Imperial Concubine Underneath (16)
The Flower Festival also had its own role, that was, men and women could both go out and play on this day. So naturally, for a long time, this day had been used as a blind date.
Bai Weiwei had a tone of jealousy at her parents happy relationship along with admiration for the Flower Festival.
Sheng Siyu’s eyebrows slightly scrunched up. He knew that Imperial consort Chen should have felt his cold attitude, and he also knew she would start to deal with Bai Weiwei’s parents first.
And he would only look around, even indulging in this type of behavior.
He couldn’t imagine it at all. When Bai Weiwei finds out that her parents had an accident, what would her expression be like?
Sheng Siyu suddenly found himself weak, he didn’t dare to imagine his future with her.
When he came out room that had Bai Weiwei, the Head Eunuch whispered to him, “When the lanterns were starting this evening, the Chen family held a large lantern tour next to the canal, and most of the lanterns used were royal lanterns.”
Royal lanterns, only the royal family was qualified to enjoy those lanterns.
Chen family was one of the four major families. But his power was also the weakest, yet he had dared to challenge the royal authority.
Sheng Siyu’s eyes flashed with a cold light and he told the Head Eunuch, “Then starting this evening, raise the butcher knife.”

Bai Weiwei thought that today’s act would only be needed till here, so at night she was idle and had nothing to do. So she actually unexpectedly started doing some needlework.
After all, she was pretending to be an ancient chinese person, so she should put on airs a little.
Bai Weiwei embroidered half when Hong Xiu came in to cut the wick, making the lights brighter.
“Mistress, it’s late now, embroidery in the dark is not good for the eyes.”
Bai Weiwei bowed her head and smiled softly, “It’s fine, I just wanted to finish embroidering this sachet as much as possible.”
She just said this casually, in actually she was only cross stitching, but that is also embroidery.
【The man is coming, He’s just outside the window, came by flying.】
Flying? Qinggong1? She started to get super excited that there was actually Qinggong.
Bai Weiwei continued to embroider her flowers.
Sure enough, Hong Xiu said, “What is Mistress embroidering? This looks quite… unusual.”
Bai Weiwei smiled shyly, “Today is the flower festival. So I wanted to embroider the beast who is the Guardian Flower Festival. The guardian of love.”
When Hong Xiu heard this, she couldn’t understand her mistress’ mind. The emperor was so ruthless, how can Bai Weiwei’s love ever be responded to.
And this beast… was ugly.
The system is dead, and finally I can’t help it. “You embroidered… This blue head, white face, and hand without fingers, wasn’t it Doraemon2?”
And it’s ugly enough to blind.
Bai Weiwei smiled coldly, “You are so childish, you’ve must have watched all the cartoons.”
The system choked, “…”
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability has risen to 35.】
Sheng Siyu who was secretly outside didn’t expect to hear these words Bai Weiwei said to her maid.
He stood silent for a long time, his heart started to warm up, but he pressed it down.
The Imperial family is ruthless.
He was equally ruthless.
So he came into the room, “What is Bai Zhaoyi doing?”
Bai Weiwei panicked, her first reaction was to hide the embroidery hoop to the side, and a bit unnaturally she saluted, “Your Majesty, Why did you come.”
Sheng Siyu naturally took her hand, “Does Bai Zhaoyi not want to have a look at the lanterns tonight? Let’s go.”
Bai Weiwei showed a surprised smile, “Really? Thank you, Emperor.”
Sheng Siyu saw her innocent and unknowing smile, and his chest felt stuffy. He knew that if she was taken out tonight, he can’t turn back.
