Chapter 460: A Visit From Zhao Shi
The moment Ning Shu left, she heard the sound of porcelain shattering. When she looked back, she saw that the little fox was sitting on the table and had pushed down the medicinal vial she brought. It had shattered on the ground, causing the medicinal powder to spill everywhere.
The little fox cried towards Huo Qing. Huo Qing dotingly poked her pink nose and said, “Little guy ah, if you don’t like the empress’s things, then we won’t accept any of the empress’s things anymore, alright?”
The little fox only became a little happier when she heard this. She looked up slightly, then started to cry angrily again. Huo Qing seemed capable of reading minds and explained to the little fox, “Last night, it was our wrong. We shouldn’t have gone to Noble Consort Xuan’s palace. Haa, little thing, you even know how to get jealous?”
The little fox bit Huo Qing’s neck while whining.
“In the future, we’ll only like you, naughty little thing.” Huo Qing felt slight pain come from his neck, but it didn’t hurt too much. He knew that the little fox was punishing him.
An infatuated and slightly frustrated expression appeared on his face.
Ning Shu had no idea how these two managed to communicate. It was seriously amazing. Could this be the legendary phenomenon of having linked hearts and being able to tell what each other was thinking with just a glance?
How mysterious. Tsk, tsk.
Ning Shu rubbed her eyes. She decided not to watch anymore and return to her own palace since their flirting obviously wasn’t going to stop anytime soon.
“Your Imperial Highness, the madame has come and is waiting for you in the palace.” The moment Ning Shu returned to her palace, Qing Zhu walked up to greet her.
Ning Shu hastily walked into the palace and saw a woman dressed in the garments of a high official’s wife. It was the original host’s mother, Zhao Shi.
“This subject pays her respects to Your Imperial Highness.” Zhao Shi’s eyes were filled with concern as she looked at Ning Shu.
Ning Shu hastily helped her up. “Mother, please rise.”
“Your Imperial Highness, how is your health? I heard that Your Imperial Highness wasn’t feeling well earlier,” asked Zhao Shi. “Have you had an imperial physician look at you?”
Ning Shu said with a smile, “Mom, this daughter is fine. Are Grandfather and Father doing well?”
“Your father is pretty well. Your grandfather is getting old and getting those typical ailments, but it’s fortunately nothing severe.” Zhao Shi lowered her head and said, “Your father heard that your health had been failing and was worried.”
