The Queen Mother looked at Fu Ping’An, her eyes were about to split, and her face was pale.
Although she tried her best to pretend to be calm, the hands hidden in her sleeves began to tremble unconsciously, her back was wet, and a cold sweat broke out.
This is impossible, how could the guards in the palace be bought?
Even if she is rich, where is the opportunity? Even if she has the opportunity, why?
Most of the captains in the Forbidden Army were promoted by her, and she could tell how many people there were in each family.
Facing the morning light, she looked around, and then she found desperately that there was not a single familiar face around.
The Forbidden Army in the Palace consisted of the Habayashi Army, the Gongmen Army, the Xiaowei Army, and the Langwei Army; with a total of 258 officers and 2,444 soldiers, all of which she knew by heart.
Yes, of course, she can't know every soldier, but she knows all the soldiers near the inner palace.
She has never read a book and only recognized the characters after she became the imperial concubine, but she quickly learned certain rules of the world without a teacher.
For example, if you want to gain power, you need to master force and the loyalty of a core group of characters.
It was precisely because of this that she became the Queen Mother, and her former master, the former queen, died in the lonely North Palace.
In any case, she felt that she was cautious enough when dealing with the young emperor.
A thirteen-year-old child who was not fully educated could never push her into a corner.
She raised her head, straightened her back, took a deep breath, and said in a deep voice: “What you have done today is completely a violation, can you understand? If you put down the knife now and arrest this thief pretending to be Her Majesty, I will forget the past.”
The soldier didn't respond but still looked at her coldly, like a knife out of its scabbard; the Queen Mother raised her voice: “Are you going to make trouble?”
As she said this, her eyes fell on Fu Ping’An involuntarily.
The child's face was showing a kind of coldness she was familiar with.
This was what she would see when she occasionally looked in the mirror.
Gaozu saw it in her eyes.
Their eyes met, and the other party showed a smile and said: “The Queen Mother is good at joking and the imperial army obeys my orders, so how can they make troubles?”
At this moment, she heard the sound of horseshoes approaching from a distance, and a pair of cavalry came walking from the palace road.
When they stopped, the leading general jumped off the carriage, knelt on one knee to salute Fu Ping’An and said at the same time: “See Your Majesty, Lieutenant General Tian Ping of the Jingji Battalion.
Gongmen Army and Xiaowei army has been brought under control, and the Habayashi Army and Langwei Army is waiting to be dispatched.”
The Queen Mother looked at the icon on the opponent's helmet and recognized that it was a battalion soldier from Gyeonggi.
This is not the forbidden army in the palace at all, but the forbidden army outside the palace.
The Queen Mother closed her eyes, dizzy for a while, it was winter, but she kept sweating; the Palace Gate Army and the Xiaowei Army were mostly her confidantes.
The Habayashi Army and the Langwei Army were relatively independent, but usually, they would never act rashly; unless there is a large army approaching the city.
She smiled wryly, realizing she had lost it all.
But just because she felt that she shouldn't lose, she felt impulsive anger because of the humiliation.
Her voice almost screamed: “This is rebellion!”
Fu Ping’An frowned slightly, her pale face looked like jade in the morning light, and she said: “Rebellion? Queen Mother, what does rebellion mean? I don't even understand.”
She sighed faintly: “Yes, it's probably because I read too little.”
With a fishy sweetness in her mouth, the Queen Mother was so agitated that she almost spat out a mouthful of blood.
Although she held back, her steps were still vain, and she staggered and fell backward.
Normally, even if she coughed, someone would greet her with care but at this moment, there was no one to help her.
She fell to the ground, in a state of distress, and heard Her Majesty say: “The Queen Mother has fallen, do you have any eyes, hurry her up! Help her to Qianqiu Palace.”
Finally, someone made a move and frantically set up the empress dowager.
Fu Ping’An ordered Wan Feng: “Go to the imperial doctor Xuan to treat the empress mother.”
Then she turned to Chen Yan: “Leave a team to work and protect the empress dowager in the Qianqiu Palace.
If you feel unwell, don’t let anyone come in to visit.”
Then she said to Qin He, “The palace servants of Qianqiu Palace are not able to serve them well, so compiled a list and locked them up in the Yeting palace camp, and then find a few palace servants to serve the mother, do you understand?”
The last sentence 'do you understand?' was addressed to the all three of them.
The three of them saluted and accepted the order.
Fu Ping’An looked at Tian Ping again: “You have made the most contribution today, and I will promote you to be the captain of Yueqi.”
[I really want to see the moon: Hey, don't draw cakes in advance.]
Tian Ping blushed with excitement: “I dare not take credit.”
Fu Ping’An smiled, but she just pretended not to see it.
After all, she didn't feel that she was drawing cakes: “All soldiers will be rewarded.”
But she then putting away her smile, she said: “Tell the Eighth Colonel to go to Chaoyang Palace.
I have something to ask.
Don't reveal what happened today.
Otherwise, not only will you not be able to take the position of Captain, but you may not be able to sit in the position of Lieutenant General.”
Tian Ping hurriedly said: “I know the benefits and disadvantages.”
Fu Ping’An patted him on the shoulder and walked along the palace road toward Chaoyang Palace.
After Fu Ping’An finished some finishing work, the day passed.
Today is a sunny day, and the sunset covered the sky like silk, with golden edges and faint purple light.
Fu Ping’An couldn't help but wonder if there would be phoenix in the clouds to celebrate her victory.
Although she read in the book that it should be the refraction of sunlight.
But she can suddenly understand why the world loves auspicious signs because if there is an auspicious sign at this time or if another Zhang Ling presents her with an “Ode to Five-Colored Birds”, she will feel more complete.
She was really happy today.
Apart from controlling the Queen Mother and the inner palace, she also received soft hands when receiving gifts.
She briefly looked at the digital bank and found that the gifts she received today were almost the sum of the past two years entered the three million mark.
Everyone is still discussing the picture of her seizing power, except that I really wants to see the moon, and another party suddenly said-[It is more difficult to keep power than to seize power.]
Having said that Fu Ping’An still allowed herself to be excited for a day.
She kept going around Chaoyang Palace until the palace servants moved all her things from Jingui Palace, and lit the stove and incense.
Qin He greeted her after reporting the progress of the work, Fu Ping’An looked at her with a smile and said, “The edict will be drawn up tomorrow, and you will be officially the head of the inner palace.”
Qin He lowered her head and pursed her lips, but she could still see the excitement, she finally leaked a smile and said: “It's all a reward from Her Majesty.”
Fu Ping’An also smiled.
That's what power feels like, the way she wants it, to have power.
She can reward the person who is loyal to her, the person she likes, and now she should not feel uneasy or guilty because if the other person is her person, she can give him all the best things in the world.
After Qin He stepped down, Chen Yan also came to return her order.
Fu Ping’An asked her with great interest what kind of official she wanted to be, and if she wanted to ask for an order for her mother.
When she was talking about this, she suddenly thought of something and asked: “By the way, I remember that your mother is your stepmother.
The reason you are prosecuted is that the county said you have pure filial piety.
Are you really on good terms with your stepmother?”
Chen Yan narrowed her eyes slightly, with a smile that was not a smile: “Young minister left home because of her stepmother's injustice; how could she have a good relationship with her stepmother? But if she didn't return home, how could she compete with her stepbrother for the property? As for this take Xiaolian as an example, to manage the county government and the county magistrate, I sold all the land that I robbed.”
Fu Ping’An was stunned.
Chen Yan looked innocent: “Did the minister say it too directly?”
[Taro milk tea: I didn't expect that the promotion channel has become so corrupt in the past 20 years, since the founding of the country.]
[Same return: This is how the promotion channel is opaque.]
Fu Ping’An was quite shocked that her important officials were recruited by bribery.
After all, in the books she is currently reading, the first condition for the court to become better is political clarity.
[I am very good today: I can start the imperial examination.]
[Qing Mo: How about taking the college entrance examination in one step?]
[Wujiang: Please respect the objective social laws; most people are not full now.]
[Ji Gu Chuanhua: So first of all, I have to have enough to eat.]
Although Fu Ping’An was surprised, she quickly adjusted her expression, pretending to be calm, and said: “In this way, the Lingtang probably doesn't need orders.
Just some salary.”
Chen Yan said with a smile: “Your Majesty can give me a promotion, so that I can get more salary.”
Fu Ping’An thought of A Zhi again, and asked, “I heard that A Zhi was adopted and changed her name.
What is her name now? How about I give her a commandment?”
Chen Yan said with a smile: “That's a good idea.”
Although there was a little shock, Fu Ping’An was still in high spirits on the whole.
She thought she would not be able to sleep because of the excitement, but she didn't expect to have a good night's sleep, which was better than any day in the past four years.
Yesterday I was off for a day because of the feast, and the next day I went to court normally.
The empress dowager who used to sit behind her right back was not here today.
Fu Ping’An explained with a smile: “The empress dowager suffers from insomnia and heart palpitations, and she is not feeling well.
She needs to recuperate in the palace from now on.”
There is also a bold one, and it is Gao Yan, the imperial historian: “Although the Empress Dowager is the mother of the country, she is also the minister's younger sister, can I come to the palace to visit you?”
Fu Ping’An's expression remained unchanged, and she said in a calm voice: “The Empress Dowager needs to recuperate behind closed doors, and thank you to the uncle for not making things difficult.”
Gao Yan raised her head and looked at Fu Ping’An with fiery eyes, but Fu Ping’An didn't seem to see the burning flame in her eyes, she turned her eyes away and said with interest: “Don't talk too much about housework; everyone has other things to report.
The hall was very quiet.
Speaking of the dozens of ministers in front of me, many of them are over half a hundred years old, but standing in the hall, they don't even cough.
Everyone stood upright as if they were not breathing.
Standing at the forefront is Prince Regent Fu Ling Xian.
Fu Ping’An believed that she knew exactly what happened in the palace, but she didn't speak and stood with her eyes downcast, her hands folded in front of her body as if she was in a daze.
Someone finally appeared, and the other party explained matters related to the resettlement of the victims and then the Shaofu stepped forward, talking about the new recruits, and said everything that should be said according to the procedure.
Fu Ping’An was about to announce her next court, the minister suddenly a person came out of the middle, and said loudly: “This minister—”
Fu Ping’An stared at him.
The other party was Huang Weirong, the servant of the door.
Fu Ping’An remembered it very clearly because she promoted him to the official position.
The other party bowed to the ground and saluted, and said word by word: “Impeaches Gao Yan, the imperial historian, for disregarding human life, oppressing good people, and occupying people's fields.”
Fu Ping’An frowned, and looked at Gao Yan with pain: “Is there such a thing?”
Panic flashed across her face, but he immediately came back to her senses and knelt to express her grievances, but immediately someone stood up and said loudly: “I testify; this is indeed the case.”
The hall quickly became noisy.
Fu Ping’An ordered Jing Zhaoyin to investigate the matter thoroughly, and suspended Gao Yan's post as imperial envoy doctor.
This was another small victory for her.
Fu Ping’An's mood reached its peak at this moment but quickly fell back.
Because when she just took out the draft edict to be rewarded to her people in Xuanshi Hall, the prime minister looked at her with disapproval and said, “Your Majesty, I think it's inappropriate.”
The Taiwei frowned and said, “I also think it's inappropriate.”
The regent didn't speak.
Or so someone had said what she was going to say anyway.
Before she could ask why, the prime minister, Fang Zicong, who was over sixty years old, knelt on the ground and said: “The reward must be justified.
If it is all based on Your Majesty's mood, the world will soon be in chaos.
If Your Majesty does not take back the order today, the minister will grow up.
The minister will not be able to kneel for a long time, or Your Majesty, just find someone else to take up the post of prime minister.
Fu Ping’An blushed.
In addition to being aggrieved by the denial, Fu Ping’An also felt ashamed.
Her words have already been released!
