Hearing Shi Qingluos question, Zhuo Jun was stunned.
She thought for a moment and said, “He dotes on a side concubine in the backyard and even made that side concubines son the crown prince.
“Outsiders say that she is King Jins favorite woman.”
Then she said with a strange expression, “Thats right, theres something very abnormal.”
Shi Qingluo asked curiously, “In what way”
Zhuo Jun said in a low voice, “That side concubine looks very similar to the current empress.”
When she was sent out of the palace that day, she happened to run into the empress and accidentally saw her face.
At that time, she was extremely shocked.
That was because she looked very similar to the side concubine in King Jins backyard.
The reason why she had seen King Jins side concubine was not because King Jin had brought her back.
It was because the crown prince at King Jins residence often held banquets, and most of them would invite high scholars in the northern city to attend.
That side concubine had once appeared at a flower feast to serve the ladies, and she had coincidentally seen her.
Shi Qingluos eyes widened.
“Did King Jin do it on purpose”
She didnt think that King Jin liked the empress and found a substitute.
If he really liked her, even if he had found a substitute, he would only hide it.
She felt that King Jin must have done it on purpose to annoy the emperor.
That was why he doted on this side concubines in such a high-profile manner and let her son become the crown prince.
Zhuo Jun also said, “I also think that King Jin did it on purpose for the emperor to see.”
He also wanted to give put the crown prince in a bad spot.
If the emperor was a little narrow-minded, he would definitely hold a grudge against the empress and this would affect his attitude toward the crown prince.
If the emperor did not like the crown prince, he would want to re-establish a new crown prince among the other princes.
The princes would definitely fight even more fiercely and allow King Jin to take advantage of this loophole.
The reason why she would tell Xiao Hanzheng and his wife about this secret was also because Shi Qingluo would discover it herself when she went to the northern city.
That side consort and her son liked to hold all sorts of banquets.
It was very likely that Shi Qingluo would be invited.
After all, King Jin wanted to rope her in.
Shi Qingluo had seen the empress before, so she could naturally connect the dots.
Zhuo Jun reminded them now so that the two of them would be prepared.
Shi Qingluo asked, “Does King Jins main concubine have a legitimate son”
Zhuo Jun replied, “Just two legitimate daughters.
King Jins sons are all from his side concubines and serving concubines.”
Shi Qingluo asked again, “That side concubine who gave birth to the crown prince, does she have a good family background”
Zhuo Jun shook his head.
“No, I heard that King Jin suddenly met her when he was traveling.
Because he liked her very much, he brought her back to the imperial residence and even directly made her his side concubine.”
When Shi Qingluo heard this, she felt that King Jin did this to annoy the emperor.
King Jin was really good at playing games, but he was also courting death by his own tricks.
The emperor had already viewed King Jin as a thorn since the start.
Now that King Jin had done this, the emperor probably wanted to chop him into a thousand pieces.
What they could relate it to, the emperor would naturally think of it as well.
He would definitely be very uncomfortable.
Looking at the emperors current attitude towards the empress and crown prince, it was fortunate that he was not affected by this matter.
Shi Qingluo smiled at Zhuo Jun and said, “Thank you for informing me.”
Zhuo Jun smiled.
When we go to the northern border, we are all on the same boat.
I also hope that you will understand more about King Jin.”
This was really not what she meant.
The reason why King Jin was jumping around so happily was that other than the things left behind by the late emperor and the escape route left for him, he was not a mediocre individual.
He was also very vicious and merciless.
If the people from the capital went to the northern border, they might lose their lives if they were not careful.
Therefore, she did not wish Xiao Hanzheng and his wife to accidentally fall into his trap when they went to the northern border.
Shi Qingluo nodded in understanding.
“Yea, then Ill have to trouble you to tell us more about King Jin.
So that we can understand the situation first.”
If what Zhuo Jun had said before was true, and she really wanted to surrender to the emperor, then if Shi Qingluo and her husband didnt respond as planned, there was a high chance that she would be implicated.
The plan that she had hidden for so many years for a revenge would be in vain.
Zhuo Jun also had such intentions behind her words.
“King Jin is a very flirtatious person.
His personality is also flamboyant and willful, but he is very polite to the wise individuals.
“Of course, being polite to the wise individuals may only be on the surface, because he is more ruthless and merciless.
“He also likes to recruit strange people.
He has raised a group of people who are good at different things in his residence.
“Among those so-called gangsters, there are indeed many who are capable.
“I heard that the powerful crossbows in King Jins army were modified by one of them.
“Oh right, King Jin also raised a group of very special women who were specially trained to use a honey trap on those who he was trying to rope or lure in.
“When someone comes into contact with King Jin, he might give a warmth personality, but thats just an illusion.
Dont fall for it.”
If she didnt accidentally know the truth and that her biological father treated her really well, she might have believed King Jin and couldnt help but get close to him.
She looked at Shi Qingluo and said, “When we reach the northern border, with King Jins character, not only would he make a move on Xiao Hanzheng, such as getting someone to seduce him or other methods to entice him, he would also make a move on you.
“The strange things that had happened on you fits King Jins preferences.
“You also know how to ideate and earn money, and King Jin will pay more attention to you.
“As for how exactly he will lure you, I cant anaylse and predict.
“Looking at King Jins willful and ostentatious personality, it seems that he likes those who are frank and straightforward.
But in reality, he is really dark.
What he likes the most is to trap and annoy others.”
Zhuo Jun said, “Thats about all I know.
Because King Jin doesnt want me to expose my identity, he has always made it seem like I have no relationship with King Jins manor.
So, other than attending the gathering held by the crown prince normally, I have never been to King Jins manor alone.
“In addition, there have always been people monitoring me, so my knowledge is actually limited.”
She had carefully investigated all these over the years.
However, the emperor should know about it, perhaps even better than she did.
This could be considered as her goodwill toward Xiao Hanzheng and his wife before they went to the northern border, to make up for the fact that she had used this opportunity to meet the emperor.
Shi Qingluo smiled and said, “We are even more clueless about King Jin.
Your information is still very useful to us.”
