The Empress's Gigolo - Chapter 820
The Empress's Gigolo Chapter 820 The Grand Wedding Part 3
In the backyard of the Tong Residence, a lady walked hurriedly into the side yard.
She seemed to be in her thirties, and her hair was casually bunned up. She looked a little like Tong Lan, but her face was deathly pale.
She was Tong Lan’s mother, Tie Kuang, and she handled practically everything in the house.
When Tong Zhenye went drinking with Ren Baqian last night, she didn’t feel that anything was wrong with it. However, now that the empress was almost at the door and both of them still hadn’t come out of the house, Tie Kuang knew that something was wrong.
“Madam!” Two burly men were sitting in the yard in a daze and quickly got up when they saw her.
Not only did this lady keep everything in the house neat and tidy, but she was pretty strong as well. In another decade or so, she might be able to break through to the Cardinal Heaven level and be highly respected in the family.
“Are father and Zhao Prince Consort inside?” Tie Kuang asked coldly.
“Yes!” they replied honestly.
Tie Kuang walked toward the room.
The two quickly stopped her and said, “Madam, Minister Tong ordered us not to let anyone step inside before Her Majesty arrives!”
“My father said that?” Tie Kuang looked at them.
“All the more reason I have to go in! My father acted wilfully and blindly followed his instructions?” With a cold look on her face, she walked past the two of them.
They tried to stop her again, but her tofu-like hands pressed against their chests, sending them flying into the wall.
“Humph!” Tie Kuang scoffed. She opened the door and saw that the entire room was a mess. The whole room reeked of alcohol, and the two men inside were only wearing underpants.
Zhao Prince Consort lay on the floor, while Tong Zhenye lay sideways on the table. Both of them were sound asleep.
Tie Kuang was fuming with rage!
Needless to say, if Her Majesty were to see this, she would definitely be furious!
While Zhao Prince Consort would definitely be punished, Tong Zhenye wouldn’t be able to get away either!
Tie Kuang simply couldn’t understand what Tong Zhenye was planning. Did he do this so that Zhao Prince Consort would get punished? To the extent of implicating himself?
He was simply taking himself down with Ren Baqian!
Tie Kuang turned around and called out, “Get someone to prepare green vine soup immediately. Get two more people to help Zhao Prince Consort clean up and put on new clothes!”
She listened carefully to the fighting noises in the distance and thought to herself, General, you must hold Her Majesty back longer!
Ren Baqian came to a few minutes later with a splitting headache and a messed up stomach.
“Tong Zhenye, you old clapper. You set me up!” he shouted.
Even though he shouted, it wasn’t very loud. He didn’t even have the energy to shout anymore and felt like he would vomit as soon as he moved.
Even after he had attained the Earth Wheel level, his body was definitely not the same as that of ordinary people. However, he would still feel a headache after drinking and would throw up if he drank too much. He had three vats of wine last night. At the least, each vat was filled with more than ten kilograms of wine! Even though the alcohol content of the wine wasn’t high, he almost died drinking so much!
Tong Zhenye lay on the floor and laughed, looking pretty happy.
He replied, “Since our age gap is so big, this is how we share life’s joys and sorrows! I’m accompanying you through this ordeal as well! What else do you have to say, Zhao Prince Consort? Why hasn’t Her Majesty arrived yet?”
Ren Baqian immediately gnashed his teeth and declared, “You will die worse than me!”
“During normal times, that might be true, but today… Hehe, what do you think?” Tong Zhenye responded unhurriedly.
“Ah, ah, ah!” Ren Baqian was so mad at Tong Zhenye that he felt like jumping up and hammering him.
“But why?” Ren Baqian was fuming mad. Was it because of that stone? Tong Zhenye had already been kicked by the empress so many times.
Tong Zhenye turned and looked to the sides before saying, “Move away!”
He then continued, “That stone yesterday. I got shocked by Her Majesty the moment I jumped out and got kicked by her. I couldn’t get it to stand after I got home… Who do you think should be held accountable for this?”
“You are already old and will be dying soon. You have no self-respect, you bastard!” Ren Baqian felt surprised and angry.
“I’m still young. According to the life expectancy of a Cardinal Heaven expert, I can live for at least another 100 years!”
Ren Baqian was speechless. According to their life expectancies, this was true. Tong Zhenye was only 60 years old and still had another 120 years to go. He was still considered young.
Ren Baqian turned around and shouted, “You are toying around at the brink of death and still expect to live for another 120 years? My a**! There will be a piece of land waiting for you tomorrow in the plaza in front of the palace!”
Ren Baqian spat at Tong Zhenye’s head.
“Pah!” Tong Zhenye spat in return.
“Pah, pah, pah!” Ren Baqian spat three times consecutively.
“Is the green vine soup ready?” Tie Kuang stood at the side and felt utterly speechless as she watched the two men spitting at each other.
If not for their statuses, she would have sealed their mouths shut.
After a bowl of green vine soup was served, Ren Baqian immediately felt his stomach warm up. The discomfort in his belly slowly began to ease away.
Someone rushed in and reported, “General Hong has fallen. Her Majesty will be here soon!”
At present, not too far away from the Tong Residence, Hong Wu’s staff was thrown to the side. The thick metal staff had become S-shaped.
The walls of the surrounding courtyards had all collapsed, and there were huge cracks in cement on the ground. If the fight wasn’t confined to this area, the entire street would probably be destroyed.
The empress was fetching her groom. Ignorant people would have thought that they were demolishing buildings!
There were bruises on Hong Wu’s face, and he looked pretty desolate.
“Your Majesty has grown up. I’m getting old!” he lamented.
Even though the empress’s strength was already above his a few years ago, he didn’t ignite his essence blood or use his bow, which he was an expert in. Even though he had already tried his best, he couldn’t seem to defeat her and felt that the strength gap between them was increasing!
“General, were you actually doing it for real?” The empress was a little unhappy.
Hong Wu shook his head and said, “I’m just testing you out!”
He then smiled and added, “Your Majesty’s talent has surpassed even the two former emperors! You will definitely achieve what nobody has ever done before! You are truly the pride of the aboriginals and the pride of Dayao!”
“Pride of the aboriginals! Your Majesty! Your Majesty! Your Majesty!” After hearing what Hong Wu said, the commoners in the distance grew passionate.
Everyone in the streets was chanting, “Your Majesty!”
Tong Lan lay on a wall that was intact and felt very excited as she watched the people in the street cheering for the empress.
Her Majesty was her idol and had always been!
As for Yagui… Yagui… Tong Lan thought about it and felt that Yagui was a pretty smart person. Even though he wasn’t worthy of the empress, it would probably be impossible to find someone worthy anyway.
The empress picked the best out of the rest, and apart from being a little too weak, he was considered pretty acceptable.
She leaped back into the courtyard since she still had to welcome Her Majesty into the Tong Residence.
The empress looked deeply at Hong Wu, turned around, and mounted Qi Shui. The convoy continued their journey and arrived in front of the Tong Residence just several meters away.
Someone stood in front of the gate and shouted, “Zhao Prince Consort, receive the imperial decree.”
“Coming, coming…” The flustered voice coming from the Tong Residence made many people feel a little weird. Shouldn’t they have been waiting at the gate long ago?
Ren Baqian quickly rushed to the front of the house while the people of the residence followed behind.
He noticed the empress with one glance. She was riding on Qishui and wore a red dress. It was red silk with golden embroidery on it, different from her usual red muslin, and was extremely gorgeous…
Her hair was plaited up with a ponytail at the back. Her eyebrows were sharp, her eyes were crystal clear, and her lips were as red as a ball of flames.
As they looked at each other, Ren Baqian’s heart pounded when he looked into her eyes.
Fully dressed in red, the empress looked at him with her eyes glistening like water.
However, Ren Baqian still needed to receive the imperial decree.
This decree pertained to their wedding and explained the general idea of the occasion. He was just reading it out of formality.
Ren Baqian received the decree and looked up at the empress. Both of them were smiling.
While he was grinning from ear to ear, she was looking a little bashful.
No matter how heroic she was, she was still a lady who experienced most of the emotions that a normal lady would.
This was especially the case when there were so many onlookers around.
However, the heroic empress had just scored a great victory against Hong Wu. Her bashfulness made everyone feel excited. They subconsciously looked at her in awe.
She dismounted from Qishui and walked toward the Tong Residence. They had to spend the next half of the day here, and there was no banquet being held here. They had to wait until dusk to return to the palace where they would get married, celebrate, and feast.
When the empress walked past Ren Baqian, she suddenly noticed an extremely dense smell of alcohol…
Then, she thought about how he came out in a fluster…
She was fighting so hard outside, yet he was here drinking alcohol?
Seeing that her mood had changed, Ren Baqian immediately defended himself and explained, “Your Majesty, Sir Tong set me up so badly!”
Everyone turned to look at the smirking Tong Zhenye.
