After Xia Baifeng left, the palace became quiet again.
Bai Luoluo continued to live his little life with Mao Jiu.
After a period of time, Mao Jiu seemed to have gradually gotten used to living in the sun, and got rid of some of the dark guards’ faults–for example, as long as he stood, he had to stand in an inconspicuous corner.
The boy was just seventeen or eighteen when he was developing. Since Mao Jiu started to eat with Bai Luoluo, his height has started to rise.
Bai Luoluo became a little familiar with him and asked him what he likes to eat.
Mao Jiu pinched the chopsticks, said something lowly and liked it.
Bai Luoluo said, “Do you like meat or vegetables?”
Maojiu pursed his lips and said a bit embarrassingly.
Bai Luoluo glanced at a table of good dishes, and said, “When you were the guards, how often did you eat meat?”
Mao Jiu thought for a while and said, “Twice a month.”
Bai Luoluo thought that it seemed normal to eat meat twice a month in this low-productivity ancient time. Thinking this way, he gave a private order.
So when the two ate for the second time, it became a situation where most of Mao Jiu was in front of him.
When Bai Luoluo and Mao Jiu get along, there are still many details. Anyway, Bai Luoluo took Mao Jiu as a child.
Of course, when he is doing these things, the system also reminds him not to do too much, so as not to cause suspicion.
After listening to the system, Bai Luoluo converged a bit, but what he didn’t expect was that what he did still caught the attention of others.
This other person is not a perfunctory object, but Yuan Feiyan’s brother, the current saint.
Yuan Feiyan has a very good relationship with the same father and mother of Sacred Mountain. When he was taken over, Yuan Feiyan also helped a lot, so his brother has always been tolerant of him. He deceived men and women and provoked a lot of people. It was the saint who helped him wipe his ass.
Suddenly being declared into the palace, Bai Luoluo felt a little guilty. He sat in the carriage and discussed with the system what the emperor would do with him.
The system said, “Maybe I’m looking for you to chat.”
Bai Luoluo said, “Then what if he finds out that I am not Yuan Feiyan.”
The system was silent for a moment, and then said in a comforting tone, “Don’t worry, there will be subsidies after being burned to death.”
Bai Luoluo, “…”
The system said, “Go with peace of mind.”
Bai Luoluo was speechless. He was repeatedly told not to underestimate the IQ of the aborigines of the world when he was training in the unit. Once he was found out that he was not Yuan Feiyan, there was a high probability that he would be burned to death because he was here. In the world, it is actually like a virus…
The carriage passed the palace gate and soon sent Bai Luoluo outside the study.
Bai Luoluo got out of the carriage and waited outside for a while, then someone came to open the door and greeted him in.
The weather has been getting colder and colder recently. There was only a heavy snowfall a few days ago. When Bai Luoluo entered the house, he saw his emperor brother sitting in front of the bookcase, looking down at something.
“Here?” The emperor looked a bit similar to him, but there was more majesty between his expressions.
“The official brother sees the emperor.” Bai Luoluo saluted.
“Get up.” The emperor put a pen and said lightly, “I haven’t seen you in a few months, why have you lost weight?”
Bai Luoluo smiled and said, “It’s cold, and I don’t have any appetite in bed every day.”
The emperor nodded and said nothing.
Bai Luoluo had only seen such things as palace nobles on TV. This time he had opened his eyes to this world. Unlike what he saw on TV when he really stood in front of the emperor, he realized that things like the emperor’s aura really exist.
Bai Luoluo lowered his head and looked at the back of his instep, with a respectful look on his face, but in his heart, he was roaring at the system, “His eyes are so terrible, ah, has he discovered something?”
The system’s voice was soft as water, but it was words that made Bai Luoluo speechless. He said, “Don’t worry, I will shield your pain when you are burned to death.”
Bai Luoluo, “…”
The system said, “Don’t be afraid, hold me tight.”
Bai Luoluo was silent for a while, and said, “So how much subsidy would I get if I was burned to death?”
The system says, “Subsidies for three days of vacation.”
Bai Luoluo, “…no salary?”
The system said, “You think too much.”
Bai Luoluo, “…” Ha ha, all evil capitalism.
The two were quiet for a while until Bai Luoluo felt some cold sweat on his forehead, and the emperor spoke again. He said, “I heard that you recently acquired a new shadow guard?”
Bai Luoluo, “Huh?”
The emperor said, “Yes or not?”
Bai Luoluo said, “Yes…”
The emperor’s expression seemed to be smiling, he said, “That shadow guard looks exactly like you?”
Bai Luoluo, “…”
Seeing that Bai Luoluo couldn’t answer, the emperor sighed for a long time, and said, “You, you are getting crazy playing.”
Bai Luoluo almost didn’t mention it.
The emperor said, “I know you are not afraid of men and women, but this person looks exactly like you, how can you get it right?”
Bai Luoluo said yes, yes, why do you think I can do it!
When the emperor saw Bai Luoluo’s face turned blue and white, he thought that what he said embarrassed Bai Luoluo, he softened his tone and said, “You have to be on your own with these things, and don’t go too far.”
Bai Luoluo, “…”
The emperor said, “Huh?”
Bai Luoluo had no choice but to respond, he thought, probably the whole court knew that this prince was a pervert who was narcissistic and liked himself.
The emperor talked with Bai Luoluo again, and finally said suddenly, “Don’t you like to eat grapes the most? Recently, there have been some more plants in the greenhouse. Not many, you can take them back and eat them.”
Bai Luoluo was taken aback when he heard the words, and then said, “Grapes? But the emperor brother, the courtiers don’t like to eat grapes.”
The emperor smiled brightly and said, “Oh, I remembered it wrong for my brother.”
Looking at the emperor’s smile, Bai Luoluo immediately realized that he asked this not because he had forgotten that his brother did not like to eat grapes, but because he deliberately tried Bai Luoluo.
Fortunately, Bai Luoluo had memories of Yuan Feiyan, so he didn’t reveal anything.
“Go.” The emperor slowly said, “Don’t go too far. The New Year will be in a few months. You should prepare everything you need.”
Bai Luoluo nodded and said yes, and then retreated.
At this time it was getting late, and a thick layer of white snow was attached to the ground and eaves, and Bai Luoluo was sitting on the carriage with a big guard. The Chinese New Year in ancient times is much stronger than that of Bai Luoluo’s time. The red lanterns, beautiful window grilles, and people’s clothing are all preparing for the grandest festival throughout the year.
When Bai Luoluo arrived home, Mao Jiu was still reading in the room, he pushed the door in and saw the young man sitting under the orange light.
The young man was holding the book, frowning slightly, studying the books Bai Luoluo left him word by word. Hearing Bai Luoluo’s footsteps, Mao Jiu stood up and called to Bai Luoluo’s master.
Bai Luoluo walked over and let Mao Jiu sit down.
Mao Jiu paused slightly and sat down again as Bai Luoluo said.
“Mao Jiu, what do you think after reading so many books?” Bai Luoluo asked after taking a sip of the warm tea.
“What do you think?” Mao Jiu had some dazed expressions on his face, obviously not knowing what Bai Luoluo wanted to ask him.
Bai Luoluo said, “Yes, I think.”
Most of the books Bai Luoluo showed to Mao Jiu were historical books and biographies, which objectively recorded the change of dynasties, social development, and ideological changes. Of course, the connotation of this textbook is rather obscure, downplaying imperial power and emphasizing personal human rights.
This set of textbooks is said to be the one with the best response, quite educational, and not too radical to make people accept it.
Mao Jiu looked at Bai Luoluo, gritted his teeth, and said in a low voice, “Master, the subordinates are not reluctant.”
Bai Luoluo, “…”
Mao Jiu said, “The master is everything Mao Jiu has. The master asks Mao Jiu to do what Mao Jiu will do.”
Bai Luoluo wanted to tell him, son, Dad is very disappointed in you.
He looked at Mao Jiu’s face and said quietly after a while, “If I want you to die.”
Mao Jiu said, “The master wants Mao Jiu to die, and Mao Jiu dare not survive.”
Bai Luoluo was silent for a while, and said, “Then what if I want your body.”
Hearing the words, Mao Jiu took a deep breath, then shook his hands to untie the opening in his chest, and said tremblingly, “Master…”
Bai Luoluo felt sad for the child’s honesty and hurriedly called to stop.
So Mao Jiu stopped moving again.
Bai Luoluo looked at Mao Jiu’s face and suddenly moved in his heart. He slowly said, “Mao Jiu, I want you to know one thing.”
Mao Jiu’s face was blank.
Bai Luoluo stretched out his hand, pressed it on his forehead, and said word by word, “You are a person, not an object.”
Mao Kou gritted his teeth.
Bai Luoluo said, “Even if it’s your master, you can’t let you do whatever you want, understand?”
Mao Jiu does not answer.
Bai Luoluo sighed lowly, he said, “If you don’t want something, just say it…”
But as soon as he said this, he heard Mao Jiu whispering, “No, master, I’m just a dog…”
Bai Luoluo sighed, knowing that some things had penetrated deeply into his soul when Mao Jiu was a shadow guard, and could not be changed overnight. He nodded Mao Jiu’s forehead and said, “You don’t mean anything. Listen to me.”
Mao Jiu nodded.
Bai Luoluo said, “Then I want you to treat yourself as a person and remember that you are an individual.”
Mao Jiu’s eyes flickered, and only after a long while, he called his master softly.
Bai Luoluo looked at him lovingly, as if looking at his son who had worked so hard to raise.
