As Old Madam Qiao spoke, hot tears welled up in her eyes.
She sighed softly.
“Even when the late empress fell sick and the late emperor only went to see her a few times. However, every time, the two of them would part on bad terms.
“She had been headstrong her entire life and refused to say that she was wrong even until her death. On her deathbed, perhaps the late emperor was soft-hearted and asked me to visit her.
“I wanted to bring her comfort, but she told me that her only dying wish was to be buried on a tall green mountain.”
Old Madam Qiao still couldn’t forget what the late empress had said to her decades ago.
It was as if she could still see the last time she saw her when she closed her eyes.
In the cold palace, the late empress Chi Fu was so thin that she had lost her former plump and dignified appearance.
However, her eyes were so black and bright that no one dared to ignore them.
It was just like the prideful charm she had when she was in her prime back then.
Chi Fu stood under the window and looked at the swallows flying in the blue sky. An extremely beautiful smile appeared on her face.
“A’Shi.” She called Old Madam Qiao’s name softly.
Old Madam Qiao only felt that the wind that blew in from outside the window blew at her thin robe.
It was as if the wind wanted to take her away too.
Chi Fu pointed at the swallow in the sky. “Look, it’s another year when the grass grows and the orioles fly. Han’er’s birthday is coming soon.
Unfortunately, I probably won’t be able to live to see it.”
After being locked up in the cold palace for so long, she hadn’t seen Gu Yihan once.
She heard that her son hated her and also felt that she wanted to poison him and take down Consort Yu.
Old Madam Qiao hurriedly said, “Elder Sister Fu, don’t spout nonsense. His Majesty’s heart has already softened. He was willing to let me come and talk to you because he wanted to comfort you.
“Don’t think about anything now. Rest well. It probably won’t be long before you can leave the cold palace.”
When Chi Fu heard this, she only smiled and didn’t say anything.
However, it was obvious that her eyes reflected no greater sorrow than a dead heart.
This deep palace was a place of suffering filled with thorns for her.
When Old Madam Qiao left, she didn’t know what to say to comfort her.
However, Chi Fu said to her, “A’Shi, after I die, please try your best to fight for me on account of our past relationship.
“Bring half of my corpse to a tall green mountain to bury it. This way, even if I’m in the netherworld, I’ll still be able to see if this world can eventually belong to my son.”
Old Madam Qiao was stunned. “Elder Sister Fu…
Back then, when the first winter rain fell, the late empress died of illness.
To the end, she didn’t get to see Gu Yihan.
Gu Nuo’er watched as her grandmother fell into memories.
Tears kept flowing out of the corners of her closed eyes.
She reached out her small hand to wipe Old Madam Qiao’s face.
“Grandmother, don’t cry. Nuo’er’s heart will ache.” Gu Nuo’er hugged her arm tightly.
Old Madam Qiao took a deep breath and calmed down.
Only then did she pat Gu Nuo’er’s head, her eyes shining with loving tears.
“Nuo’er, no matter what others tell you about the late empress, don’t believe them.
“What happened back then must have been a setup against her. When His Majesty was still young, he had been seriously ill.
“How could a mother like her kill her child for power?! However, you can’t mention this in front of His Majesty.”
Old Madam Qiao sighed. “Because there was no evidence of what happened back then, His Majesty was still young at that time and still doesn’t know the truth. I’m afraid he blames the late empress in his heart..”
