Chapter 47: A Trace Of Astonishment Flashed Through Long Yang’s Black Eyes
The hall was in an uproar.
Qin Wanru, who had come back to her senses, let out an enraged bellow, “Lu Liangwei, I’m going to kill you!” As soon as she said those words, she threw herself at Lu Liangwei in a frenzy.
“Announcing the arrival of the Emperor…”
Just then, the eunuch’s call was heard.
The Emperor was here!
Qin Wanru froze, her movements stiffening abruptly.
Immediately afterward, the Emperor walked into the hall. He was dressed in a bright yellow imperial robe. An entourage of people including the Crown Prince and Princess as well as the Grand Duke’s heir Lu Tingchen followed him closely.
“All hail the Emperor!”
Everyone was startled and instantly threw themselves to the floor.
Only Qin Wanru, who had yet to react, was left standing there in shock.
She was like a crane standing among a brood of chickens.
Seeing this, Zhao Qian said sharply, “Such insolence! How dare you not kneel in the Emperor’s presence?”
Only then did Qin Wanru regained her senses and knelt in a hurry, her voice trembling, “Greetings, Your Majesty!”
“Rise!” Long Yang’s gaze swept across the hall, and after commanding calmly, he walked toward his throne.
Qin Wanru heaved a sigh of relief and stood up along with everyone else, but just then…
A strange sound echoed throughout the hall.
Qin Wanru blushed and bowed her head for fear of being noticed.
Sadly, the hall was already silent, so this sudden sound did not escape everyone’s ears.
An awkwardness fell over the crowd, and nobody dared to look at the Emperor’s current expression.
Sure enough, Long Yang stopped in his tracks and looked in the direction of the sound source.
Zhao Qian was drenched in a cold sweat.
Who could be this bold as to behave so discourteously in front of the Emperor?
Lu Liangwei, who was getting up, sensed the Emperor’s gaze falling on her and immediately shook her head to clarify. “It wasn’t me.”
She moved a few steps aside, and Qin Wanru, who was standing behind her, was thus exposed to everyone’s eyes.
When Long Yang saw Lu Liangwei, a trace of astonishment flashed through his deep black eyes.
Right at that moment, several more peculiar puffing sounds were heard.
Moreover, each sound only got louder than the previous one, much like a string of bombs.
Everyone could no longer play deaf even if they wanted to, and all eyes looked in the same direction.
Qin Wanru’s complexion was a mixed shade of green and red, and she clamped her legs together tightly. She could not clarify with a shake of her head like Lu Liangwei even if she wanted to, because her farts seemed to have gone out of control and were releasing themselves one after another.
As the people’s odd gazes fell on her one by one, Qin Wanru wished fervently to crawl into a hole in the ground.
Amidst her shame and anger, she caught sight of Lu Liangwei standing nearby.
Although the smile on her mouth was not obvious, Qin Wanru felt that Lu Liangwei was laughing at herself.
She instantly felt that she had been terribly humiliated.
Lu Liangwei was just a shameless and lowly woman; what right did she have to laugh at her?
Enraged, Qin Wanru suddenly pointed at Lu Liangwei and shouted, “Lu Liangwei, it’s you, you must have schemed this!”
With this move, she managed to steer everyone’s attention away from her and toward Lu Liangwei.
Seeing this, Lu Liangwei furrowed her brow. “Miss Qin, please make yourself clear. What exactly have I done?”
Qin Wanru blushed furiously and said, “It’s all because of you that I, I…”
She could not bring herself to utter the word ‘farted’ no matter what.
However, she was sure that Lu Liangwei was the one behind this and was responsible for making her behave discourteously in front of everyone.
This incident would be spread throughout the entire imperial capital before tomorrow. How then would she even have the dignity to go out and meet people?
The more Qin Wanru thought about it, the angrier she got. She even neglected the fact that the Emperor was nearby and, with a roar, threw herself at Lu Liangwei to scratch her beautiful face.
In her heart, she thought viciously that since she had already been shamed, she would definitely drag Lu Liangwei through the mud too.
