Chapter 800: Green With Envy

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

After recovering from their shock, the court officials immediately stopped persuading the Emperor to expand the harem and produce more heirs and started reporting good news from the frontier.
Shortly after arriving at the frontier, the troops led by the Grand Duke engaged in a large-scale clash with Danjue.

Their first battle ended in victory, and the news was rapidly delivered to the imperial capital.

The court officials began to praise the Grand Duke’s ability as a military commander.

Those who held positions in the court were all as shrewd as snakes.

The Grand Duke Family’s influence had been on the rise lately.

First, the Grand Duke led an army into battle with Danjue, and then, the Empress became pregnant with the Emperor’s child.

If the Grand Duke were to capture Danjue in one fell swoop, his family’s status would become even more prominent.

Moreover, if the Empress were to give birth to a son, he would surely become Great Shang’s future heir apparent, given the Emperor’s current attitude toward the Empress.
Everyone was instantly green with envy.

‘Who would have known that a woman rejected by the Crown Prince would become the Empress one day, whereas Long Chi would be demoted to Prince of Xuyang overnight?

How the tides had turned!

Compared with the joyful court officials, Long Yang was much calmer.

Danjue had always been a force to be reckoned with, and Wanyan Jin, in particular, was not to be underestimated.

After the court session ended, Long Yang ordered Chu Qi to send someone to the frontier.

Although he believed that Lu Hetian was not someone who would be carried away by success, he was worried that Wanyan Jin would pull some sneaky tricks.

After hearing the news of Lu Liangwei’s pregnancy, the Dowager Duchess and Ling Lihua came to the palace to visit her.
Lu Liangwei went out to greet them in surprise and delight. “Grandmother, Mother, why are you here?”

Seeing her come out, the Dowager Duchess scolded, “You should stay put indoors. Why did you come out?”

Ling Lihua also held her arm anxiously and added, “Why are you still behaving so rashly?”

Feeling warm inside, Lu Liangwei linked arms with them and said cutely, “How could I sit still when both of you are here? If I’d known you were coming, I’d have waited at the palace gates.”
The Dowager Duchess chuckled. “In that case, you might as well come back to the mansion and fetch us.”

Lu Liangwei stuck out her tongue playfully. “If I’d known earlier, then maybe.”

The Dowager Duchess shook her head in amusement, but the tenderness in her eyes did not diminish in the slightest.

Lu Liangwei led them into the bedchamber. After they sat down, Zhu Yu and several other maidservants served tea and cakes to the Dowager Duchess and Ling Lihua.

The Dowager Duchess stroked Lu Liangwei’s hair fondly and said wistfully, “You’re pregnant now, Weiwei. You’re finally an adult.” Her tone was full of joy.

Lu Liangwei was a little sheepish. “I’ve always been an adult, Grandmother.”

Aunt Lan could not help herself from saying with a smile. “Second Miss, after Madam heard that you’re pregnant, she couldn’t sit still at all and requested to enter the palace and visit you right away. His Majesty then sent Butler Zhao to pick us up from the mansion. His Majesty truly cares for you a lot,
Second Miss.”

The Dowager Duchess nodded in agreement. She thought of something and said, “When we get back, I’ll have someone send a letter to your father and brother. I’m sure they’ll be delighted to hear that you’re pregnant. They’re going to become a grandfather and uncle soon.”
Lu Liangwei was a little embarrassed by the idea, but her father and brother deserved to know about such an important matter, so she did not stop the Dowager Duchess. “All right. I’ll leave everything to you.”

The moment Ling Lihua entered the room, she kept quiet and took Lu Liangwei’s pulse like the pragmatic person she was.

Although her daughter possessed medical skills herself, she was still a little worried.

After all, her daughter was still young, and now that she was pregnant, there could be no room for negligence.
