Also, many thanks to everyone who bought me coffee (*?*)

The Emperor was furious!

He hated that vicious and poisonous woman to the extreme. Unfortunately, everyone around him was bought off by her one by one. The little miracle physician and Xiao Liulang, he wouldn't mention them, as they knew her first.

But why wouldn't she spare even his own son?

Children were easily fooled, especially this little chubby glutton. Just give him a sweet jujube and he would run for it.

The Emperor didn't think it was difficult at all for her to buy off his son, nor did he think his son genuinely found Empress Dowager Zhuang good. It was just Empress Dowager Zhuang using her means to snatch people from his side again.

Qin Chuyu trembled in Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing's arms.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing gently stroked his face and said, "Don't be afraid, lets go to Grandmother Jings place."

"Okay!" Qin Chuyu tightly nestled in Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing's arms and didn't come out.

The Emperor couldn't really drag Qin Chuyu out of Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing's arms to teach him a lesson. He suppressed his anger and said, "Get in the sedan and return to the Huaqing palace!"

The group returned to Huaqing Palace. Qin Chuyu was worried that his father would spank his butt, so he rushed into Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing's bedchamber. CHCk for ew stries on no/v/el/bin(.)c0m

The Emperor watched his son run faster than a rabbit and his mouth twitched.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing didnt know whether to laugh or cry as she said, "Little Seven is still young. Don't be too harsh on him, it'll make him sad."

The Emperor snorted coldly, "It's better to let him be sad than to lose his life!"

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing sighed and shook her head, "Your Majesty, dont you think youve misunderstood the Empress Dowager too deeply? Renshou Palace is not the land of tigers and wolves. Empress Dowager is Little Seven's grandmother. How could she harm him?"

The Emperor stood in the corridor, looking at the silent courtyard with a cold gaze, "Imperial concubine mother seems to have forgotten what happened to Xiao Heng back then. How innocent was the four-year-old Xiao Heng? Didn't he suffer from her vicious hands then?"

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing replied, "Perhaps it's just a misunderstanding."

The Emperor looked at Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing and said dismissively, "How could there be so many misunderstandings? Imperial concubine mother is just too kind-hearted, always repaying grievances with virtue. But some people won't be grateful for it and will only become more vicious."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing said, "Then, don't blame Little Seven. He's still so young and doesn't understand anything."

The Emperor said with a frown, "He is an imperial prince and was born into this vortex. How can he survive if he remains ignorant of things?"

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing said in a serious tone, "All of this takes time. Don't be impatient. When you were as young as Little Seven, you were just as naive, weren't you?"

Thinking of the past, a trace of guilt flashed within the Emperors eyes and he said, "It was precisely because Zhen grew up too late that Zhen couldn't protect you and Ning'an well, and you both suffered so much in the palace."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing shook her head, saying, "Don't say that. We didn't suffer that much. The Empress Dowager had given the three of us a lot of help."

When Empress Dowager Zhuangs help was mentioned, the Emperor felt disgusted and angry, "That wasn't help. At most, it was a calculated scheme."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing waved her hand and said, "Okay, let's not argue about this. You go and do your work. Just teach Little Seven slowly, there's no need to rush."

At this point, the Emperor couldn't hold onto Qin Chuyu anymore and said, "Zhen shall leave Little Seven in your care, imperial concubine mother."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing smiled gently and replied, "I know. I'll have someone send him back to the Empress later."

There were many memorandums piled up in the study, so the Emperor went to review them, while Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing returned to her bedchamber.

Qin Chuyu hid behind the treasure display cabinet and cautiously peeked out, his chubby, round head looking around.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing walked over amusedly and sat down on a chair. She said to him, "Come over here. Your imperial father has left, so there's no need to be afraid."

Qin Chuyu asked incredulously, "Did imperial father really leave?"

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing smiled and said, "He left. This Grandma is a Buddhist and wont lie to you."

"Oh." Qin Chuyu remembered Little Jing Kong saying that Buddhists monks don't tell lies, so he relaxed and walked over to sit next to Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing.

He let out a sigh of relief and said, "Phew, scared me to death."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing took out a handkerchief and wiped the sweat off his forehead. She said, "Your imperial father won't eat you."

Qin Chuyu pouted, saying, "But he will beat me!"

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing stopped wiping his sweat for a moment and asked, "Does your imperial father often beat you?"

"Um..." Qin Chuyu thought carefully, "I've been beaten a few times, but not too often."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing wiped his forehead and then his cheeks, "Your imperial father is strict with you because he values you. You are his legitimate son and different from other princes."

"I know." Qin Chuyu replied.

He had known since he was young that he and his big brother the Crown Prince were born from the Empress, making their status higher than other princes. Otherwise, how could he be so domineering in the palace?

As the saying went, children at the age of seven to nine were the most naughty that even dogs would despise them. Qin Chuyu was at that age, rebellious and unreasonable. Recently, even the Crown Prince didn't want to see him.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing said softly, "Your imperial father does it for your own good."

"Humph, if hes doing it for my own good, he wouldn't have lied to me!" Qin Chuyu grunted.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing seemed amused by his childish behavior. "What lie did your imperial father tell you?"

Qin Chuyu said indignantly, "He said that imperial grandmother isn't a good person!"

In all honesty, the Emperor had never told him that. He only forbade Qin Chuyu from going to Renshou Palace. It was Qin Chuyu's own conclusion that Empress Dowager Zhuang wasn't a good person based on observing peoples words and behavior.

Although young, children could be particularly sensitive to certain things.

For example, he could sense that every time the Emperor looked at Empress Dowager Zhuang, it was as if he was looking at a bad person. The Emperor not allowing him to approach Empress Dowager also confirmed this.

Additionally, Empress Xiao and everyone else around her avoided discussing Empress Dowager Zhuang.

It wasn't surprising that he had come to this conclusion.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing patted his head, "What does Little Seven think? Is the Empress Dowager a good person?"

"Hm..." Qin Chuyu thought seriously for a moment before saying strictly, "Well, she's not bad! I had dinner with her today in her palace, and I spilled a big bowl of soup on her, but she didn't punish me or scold me."

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing looked at him kindly, "Little Seven is an imperial prince, no one would dare to scold you."

Qin Chuyu snorted, "She even scolded my imperial father! I heard it!"

"Is that so?" Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing smiled, drooped her eyelids, and put down her handkerchief.

The Emperor went to his study to review the piled memorandums. Halfway through, he stopped and put them aside. Eunuch Wei asked him with concern, "Your Majesty, what's wrong? Is it too stuffy in the room?"

"It's not that." The Emperor replied, pinching his sore brow.

Eunuch Wei suggested, "Your Majesty, you look tired. You can review these documents tomorrow. Anyway, there's no morning court session tomorrow."

The Emperor took a sip of tea and said lightly, "Zhen is not tired."

"Then what's bothering Your Majesty?" Eunuch Wei asked.

The Emperor didn't answer but said, "Where is Eunuch He? Go and fetch him."
