The next day, Xiao Yuanshi predicted that he would definitely be scolded badly in court.

So he pretended to be sick and did not attend the court meeting.

He did not arrive, but the censorates did not let him go.

All the censorates wrote excerpts of fighting against Xiao Yuanshi, criticizing him to the point that he was useless and asking the emperor to punish him severely.

Because he did not go to court, no one spoke up for him.

Moreover, even the people who were once close to Xiao Yuanshi felt that he had gone too far this time.

How could he marry the daughter of his sworn brother

Some people felt that Xiao Yuanshi was a demon.

Even if he really liked her, it was fine to raise her outside.

To actually dismiss his first wife and take this woman with a questionable identity back as his first wife, Xiao Yuanshis brain was fried.

Because of this, there were people who questioned whether Xiao Yuanshi could lead a good army.

They wanted the emperor to strip him of his identity as a senior general and take back his military authority.

There were also people who wanted the emperor to remove Xiao Yuanshi from his position in the Ministry of War.

It was more suitable for him to return to defend the northern border.

The emperor noted their opinions, but he did not say how he would deal with Xiao Yuanshi.

It was obvious that he was still considering it.

After the court was dismissed, the emperor ordered people to invite Xiao Hanzheng and Shi Qingluo into the palace.

Xiao Hanzheng and Shi Qingluo were a little confused when they received the imperial edict.

When Shi Qingluo was going to change her clothes, she asked, “Old Xiao, why did the emperor invite us to enter the palace

“It cant be because of the incident yesterday when we messed with your scumbag father, right”

Otherwise, what else could it be

Xiao Hanzheng thought for a moment.

“Its unlikely that the emperor would invite us in because of my scumbag father.

“But its a little related.

Do you still remember what you said to my scumbag father yesterday”

Shi Qingluo asked, “Ive said a lot of things.

Which sentence are you referring to”

Xiao Hanzheng said, “You said that you will go to the palace to present the recipe and asked the emperor to help you judge the situation.

“Perhaps someone relayed this to the emperor.”

Shi Qingluo thought to herself, she was just saying it to threaten scumbag father.

The emperor wouldnt take it seriously, right

“Then why dont we offer the recipe to make glass”

Previously, she had asked her husband to imitate the Taoist priests handwriting and write out quite a number of recipes.

After that, she had even made them old.

“Isnt there people who are against Daliang in front and behind our kingdom Its very likely that there will be a war.

“Once glass is made, it can be used to make binoculars.

It will also be more convenient to fight a war in the future.

“The emperor can even sell it to the western regions in exchange for gold, silver, jewelry, horses, grain, and so on.”

Now, there were also glass sales in Daliang, but they were all sent from the western regions.

Be it the quality or the color, they were not that good, but they were extremely expensive.

“The nobles in Persia and the great eclipse kingdom are especially rich.

“If the glass in Daliang is made better and more crystal clear, it will be easier to sell it back to the western regions.

“In the future, we can still use glazed tiles as windows and build warm sheds.”

Xiao Hanzheng smiled and said, “Daliang is facing internal and external problems.

War is absolutely unavoidable.

If we can strengthen our nation, it will also provide more protection for the people.

“Moreover, our nations reserve is really at a critical condition now.

After the war, Im afraid we wont be able to make ends meet.

When that time comes, we can only raise taxes.

The people will suffer again.

“We can take out this glazed recipe and offer it to the emperor, but the benefits involved are too great.

“I dont think its the right time yet.

“I think its better to wait until after I take the entrance examination and advance into a jinshi.”

With an official position meant more assurance.

Shi Qingluo thought about it and realized that it made sense.

The glass recipe would definitely be a huge profit.

It was too eye-catching.

This was also the reason why she had never thought of making her own glass before.

Furthermore, she did not know how to make glass, nor had she seen the specific process.

She only knew how to make it, so it was very troublesome to do it herself.

She might as well offer it to the emperor in exchange for some benefits.

Right now, her young husband did not have an official position yet.

No matter how many things he offered, the emperor would not be able to reward him.

It would be better after he was promoted to an official.

Many things that were not suitable for her could be rewarded to his young husband.

Offering the glass recipe would definitely yield great merit.

In the future, it would be more beneficial to her young husband.

Shi Qingluo was not as afraid of the emperor as the ancient people, so she would not let go of the benefits that she could ask the emperor for.

“As expected, you are the one who is thorough about the matters in the imperial court.”

Shi Qingluo thought for a moment.

“Then, please ask the emperor to send people to look for the rubber tree.

Lets make rubber.

“When the time comes, we can make rubber-soled leather shoes.

The tires will also be rubber-soled, so it wont be so bumpy.”

She had wanted to look for rubber before, but it was a pity that only Hainan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Fujian, Yunnan, and other places had it.

She had to ask someone to look for it herself and bring it back.

It would be very troublesome, and it would also take a lot of time and effort.

However, asking the emperor to look for it would be simpler and easier.

She really missed the rubber-soled leather shoes.

Otherwise, if it rained or snowed, the soles of the shoes would easily get wet and it would be uncomfortable to wear them.

Xiao Hanzheng nodded and smiled.

“This is good.

“If you enter the palace and the emperor asks you about the prescription, just tell him about the rubber.”

Shi Qingluo nodded.

“Okay, Ill listen to you.”

The two of them quickly changed their clothes.

Shi Qingluo drew the appearance and characteristics of the rubber tree and wrote down the method to cut the rubber.

She stuffed it into Xiao Hanzhengs pockets.

Then, the two of them boarded the carriage sent by the emperor and entered the palace.

Although the emperor did not announce to meet Xiao Hanzheng and Xiao Hanzheng in a very high-profile manner, people who were well-informed still knew about it.

Xiao Yuanshi had been paying attention to the news in the imperial court.

He knew that many people in the early dynasty had taken notice of him, but the emperor did not express his stance, so he was still relieved.

Now that he heard that the emperor actually announced to meet Xiao Hanzheng and his wife, he could not help but feel nervous.

He was afraid that his bad daughter-in-law would say bad things about him and cause trouble in front of the emperor.

He had been restless and restless all this time, pacing around the study.

Ge Chunru came to the study as usual to deliver soup.

It was also the first time that she was stopped by Xiao Yuanshis personal attendant.

“Madam, the general has something to do in the study.

He is not accepting visits from anyone.”

Ge chunru said in disbelief, “How is that possible Go and tell the general that I will deliver soup to him.”

In the past, no matter what important matters Xiao Yuanshi handled, she would always be able to enter the study room.

When her personal attendant saw that she did not believe it, she was also afraid that when the two of them reconciled, Madam would convince the general to align with her beliefs.

Hence, she could only go to the study room to ask for instructions again.

Very soon, she came out.

“The general said that he wont see anyone.

Please go back, Madam.”

When Ge Chunru heard this, she was angered.

She directly smashed the chicken soup that the servant girl carried onto the ground.

“If youre not going to see me, then Im not going to see you!”

Then, she turned around and left in a huff.

Xiao Yuanshi, who was in the study, naturally heard Ge Chunru smashing the chicken soup and talking.

He stretched out his hand and pinched the space between his eyebrows.

He had never realized that his little wife was so insensible and willful before.

He was almost annoyed to death.

]

How could he still be in the mood to drink the chicken soup

Before the matter of the housekeeper was settled, he didnt even want to see her.

He only ordered people to continue to inquire about the reason why the emperor wanted to see Xiao Hanzheng and his wife.

Many people were also paying attention.

Xiao Hanzheng and Shi Qingluo were led by eunuchs to see the emperor.

“Greetings, emperor!” The two bowed.

The emperor was correcting the memorials while the crown prince prepared the ink for him.

Seeing the two of them entering, the emperor put down his pen and said, “Please rise.”
