Everyone looked at her in disbelief.
Even Luo Qing Chen was a bit emotional at how brave Le Meng was.
“You know that even though this isn’t a death sentence, the punishment can become line one, right?” Minister Huan said with cold eyes, “Come someone, take Le Meng away for a hundred beatings! The others will all be sent out of the palace!”
“Why are you hitting Le Meng alone! The idea came from all of us, you should beat all of us!” Lin Xue gritted her teeth as she said this. When she stood out, she didn’t forget to roll her eyes at Ruan Yuan Yuan.
“Right! Beat us together!” Wang Lin stood up next. She was a bit timid, but her heart hadn’t been smoothed out by the evils of the palace yet.
They were still maids that had just entered the palace, the feelings between sisters were still here.
Minister Huan saw this and was a bit annoyed. But looking at Luo Qing Chen who hadn’t stood up, she raised a brow and said, “Why aren’t you coming out for her, are you that timid?”
“Xiao Qing has her own ideas, don’t provoke her…..”
“Le Meng.” Luo Qing Chen stood up and cut Le Meng off. She turned to minister Huan and said, “Minister Huan mustn’t be angry, these servants have just entered the palace and don’t understand many of the rules. We hope that minister Huan won’t be angry.”
“Un humph?” Minister Huan looked at Luo Qing Chen with a faint smile, “It seems like you’ve been taught well in the past few days, you finally understand that you’re a ‘servant’?”
Ruan Yuan Yuan saw that minister Huan’s mood was changing and quickly added oil to the flames, “Minister Huan, don’t listen to their nonsense! They have never bowed to me when seeing me before!”
She had deliberately passed by the maid hall during this time, she wanted to see what they looked like bowing to her.
In the end, they acted like she was invisible, like they couldn’t see her at all.
“Bow?” Luo Qing Chen looked at Ruan Yuan Yuan and gave a soft laugh, “I wonder if miss Ruan has received favour or if you are a concubine? Are you a consort or the empress?”
“You……” Ruan Yuan Yuan bit her lip and said, “I still have a higher status than a maid like you!”
“Oh.” She gave a soft laugh before saying, “Then honourable young miss Ruan, have you seen the emperor yet?”
“Si!” Luo Qing Chen’s casual statement made everyone take a cold breath.
This was because of all the people who entered the palace, whether it was the harem girls or the maids, not a single person had seen the emperor yet.
Luo Qing Chen thought: This treasure can’t even see him with 80% affection, what will you see him with?
“I can’t see him, but can a lowly maid like you see him?” Ruan Yuan Yuan’s voice was very sharp, almost screeching this out.
Only when minister Huan looked at her did she pull back.
“No matter what, the matter of the back garden’s flowers was something you promised. The month hasn’t passed, so a mistake is a mistake.” Minister Huan looked over them before finally looking at Luo Qing Chen, “There are rules in the palace.”
She pursed her lips and slightly raised her cold eyes, “This servant knows that there are rules in the palace, but isn’t a hundred beatings too much? This servant has been negligent in the back garden matter and let someone seize this chance, but that doesn’t mean there is no trace left.”
“What do you want to do?” She really admired this person in front of her. She had her own way of doing things and she never panicked.
