“You don’t have to keep emphasizing to me how cruel His Majesty is. I know very well how His Majesty treats me, and my feelings for him won’t be swayed because of your words.”

The Pure Consort was a little sheepish at having her thoughts exposed.

Lu Liangwei sighed inwardly. The Emperor had suffered from Frostbite for many years, so how would he be in the mood for romance?

She could not help but wonder – if the Emperor had been healthy and free of Frostbite back then, one of the Four Chief Consorts would have been able to move his heart, right?

“I don’t understand what His Majesty sees in you. Is it your youth or your beauty? But we were just as young as you when we entered the palace, so why wasn’t he interested in any of us?” The Pure Consort stared at Lu Liangwei in confusion, a trace of indignance in her eyes.

Coming back to her senses, Lu Liangwei did not tell her that the Emperor had been poisoned before and merely said coolly, “Pure Consort, if you want to take revenge on His Majesty by having an affair with another man, then you’re wrong. Like what you said, you’re nothing to him, so why would you doing this make him feel embarrassed? However, as an imperial consort, you’ve committed a serious crime by desecrating a married woman’s virtue. It’s not my decision to make, so I’ll leave it to His Majesty.”

Panic flashed through the Pure Consort’s eyes.

However, Zhan Lu’s head snapped up, and he stared at the Pure Consort intently.

Turning away from them, Lu Liangwei headed back to Grand Phoenix Palace with Zhu Yu’s support. She had gotten tired after standing for such a long time.

No matter what, the Pure Consort still carried the name of the Emperor’s consort, so it was up to the Emperor himself to handle this matter.

Chu Jiu then escorted the Pure Consort and Zhan Lu to Grand Phoenix Palace.

Not long after, Long Yang arrived at Grand Phoenix Palace, obviously notified by Chu Jiu.

The moment he came in, his eyes immediately searched for Lu Liangwei.

When he saw her propped up on the warm bed, a tired expression on her face, he furrowed his brow and strode over to her. “Are you feeling unwell?”

“I’m fine.” Lu Liangwei shook her head. He did not even look at the two kneeling on the floor, and there was no sign of anger on his face. This assured Lu Liangwei that he truly did not care about the Pure Consort, and after a pause, she asked, “What are you going to do about them, Your Majesty?”

Only then did Long Yang spare a glance at them.

Zhan You’s face was as white as a sheet. Having worked in the palace for a long time, he naturally knew how ruthless the Emperor could be.

He still had a sliver of hope when he was in front of the Empress, but he did not expect her to send them directly to the Emperor.

When he saw the Emperor appear, his heart sank.

He was not afraid of death, but he did not want the Pure Consort to suffer any harm.

He moved forward on his knees and slammed his head to the floor with a dull thud.

“Your Majesty, it’s all my fault. I deserve to die. Please don’t punish the Pure Consort. I’m willing to bear all responsibility.”

Lu Liangwei could hear his firmness as he repeated these words – whether in front of herself or the Emperor – and could not help glancing at him.

He was a very responsible man. He knew it was a capital crime, but he did not shrink away and instead shouldered all the blame.

“No, that’s not true. I seduced him. It’s not his fault. If you must kill one of us, let it be me, Your Majesty.” The Pure Consort came back to her senses, her expression agitated.

She could not let a man who loved her so deeply take all the blame.

Besides, she was the one who had seduced him because she could not stand the loneliness.
