GNU Ch 139 Part 2 – Collapse (II)

The Yang family’s reputation quickly deteriorated in just a few days. Now, even the pedestrian on the street dared to spit on the Yang Manor’s gate and cursed the family loudly. Ten days later, the Judicial Court finally announced the result of the investigation. Yang Xiaoyu, the grandson of Grand Senior Secretary Yang, kidnapped a civilian girl, beat her brother to death in the street, and sullied the girl afterward. Seeking revenge, the girl bid her time and finally strangled Yang Xiaoyu to death with her belt while he was sleeping.

In the Ciqing Palace, Du Ruo stood nervously next to Cheng Yujin’s seat. Seeing they were currently alone at the moment, she finally couldn’t hold back, “Your Highness, did that former palace maid… tell the truth?”

The Yang family was currently in the middle of a vortex. The murder case of Yang Fucheng’s only grandson and the scandal it caused had yet been concluded, and now his wife was also dragged into the mud. Murdering an empress, if true, was a crime totally on a different level from the blatant killing of a civilian.

The tragedy of the Shao family quickly reached the imperial court. The bloodletter a life for a life’ that Shao Zi wrote before taking her own life left a deep, heavy impression on the whole incident. The capital was where the emperor resided, and it had never seen such an atrocious incident before. Some old-fashioned officials almost went mad with rage. One of such old veterans took off his official robe and went to the morning court the next day dressed in civilian clothes. Upon seeing the emperor, he bowed his head and knelt down, “A life for a life is natural justice. This subject is willing to give up my old life to beg Your Majesty today. Please punish Senior Grand Secretary Yang and remove the harm from the common people!”

Yang Xiaoyu seemed to be exhausted. He closed his eyes and said sleepily, “Being my woman, you will benefit endlessly. As long as you serve me well, I can ignore the trouble you caused me until now. Don’t worry about my mother and grandmother — they won’t do anything to you with me here. Look, isn’t this Young Master treating you extremely well? Learn to please me, and good days will come to you. You should give birth to a child for this Young Master; a boy would be the best. Maybe you can become the mother-in-law of an imperial princess in the future. My cousin sister is already Shou Wangfei, and she is the future empress. As long as I make the request, she will surely wed a princess to my son.”

Yang Xiaoyu came out of the study with a gloomy look. He originally wanted to go out to see some friends and have fun over alcohol and women, but was stopped halfway by the family’s servants informing him that the Old Master had strictly ordered the Young Master to stay inside the house.

Yang Xiaoyu was even grumpier as a result. Since he couldn’t go out to find women, his only alternative was to choose one among the group at home. Yang Xiaoyu’s mind began to scroll through the list of his numerous concubines — he had too many women and had even forgotten the faces of quite a number of them.

After the Emperor and his entourage left, the eunuchs of the Qianqing Palace approached Li Chengjing and gave him a flattering smile, “Your Highness, are you going to stay behind and continue processing the memorials?”

“No need.” Li Chengjing replied, “Move the remaining few memorials back to the Eastern Palace. Your Majesty is not here, and it is inappropriate for Gu to stay alone in the Imperial Study.”

The horrible atrocity committed by Yang Xiaoyu immediately caused an uproar. The general public was angry, and even the court officials also couldn’t believe it when they heard about it. What Yang Xiaoyu did was not only tyrannical but also disregarded the law promulgated by the imperial authority. Needless to say, many officials were furious when they learned about the incident and hurriedly demanded that the Emperor deal severely with Yang Xiaoyu in order to set an example.

Cheng Yujin also learned that none of the concubines of the previous emperor who had offended Empress Dowager Yang ended up well, especially Noble Consort Lian, whose entire family perished with her and her son. However, even the concubines who had never offended Empress Dowager Yang were all assigned to guard the imperial mausoleum, subjected to a harsh and desolate life for the rest of their lives. It was somewhat understandable to treat enemies harshly and mercilessly, but Empress Dowager Yang spared no effort to torment even the concubines who never offended her. For what reason?

Cheng Yujin sighed. Humans were the most difficult and complex beings, and a person’s strengths were often also their fatal flaws.

The Emperor’s temperament was peace-loving. He had been compromising throughout his life and wanted all sides to coexist peacefully. This had been the case when he was merely an unfavored prince, and remained the same even after he ascended the throne.
