Emperor Changde: “This is the eldest son of Anyang Hou.
It's the first time I've seen him.
Raise your head and let me take a closer look.”

    Jiang Lin seemed a little scared and didn't respond for a long time, but Wei Yunzhao took his hand and said in a low voice, don't be afraid, Jiang Lin slowly raised his head.

    Emperor Changde saw the reaction of the two, his eyes were dim and unclear.

    While Emperor Changde was looking at Jiang, Jiang Lin also saw the emperor's face clearly.

    He had a beard and looked like he was in his early fifties.
He was very majestic, often in a high position, and full of momentum.
It was his eyes, which were not clear enough, and a little muddy.

    Emperor Changde seemed to be very satisfied with Jiang Lin, with a little smile on his face, “Well, he is a good, and his appearance is very similar to that of Wei Qing's family.
I heard from the crown prince that you are the one who offered to replace your sister to be chongxi for Wei Qing, because you are very fond of Wei Qing, is there such a thing?”

[卿 qīng: high ranking official]

    Jiang Lin sneered in his heart, and Anyang Hou's mansion really dared to say that, the original owner saw one hooked one before Wei Yunzhao, but couldn't please anyone with his reputation, and the two of them had never even met each other.

    Hesitation flashed across Jiang Lin's face, he didn't know how to answer this question.

    Fortunately, Emperor Changde didn't care, and he continued: ” Is the marriage that I made with a golden mouth and good words easy to change? At first, I wanted to punish you for your crime.
It was the crown prince who said that you specially asked the master to calculate the birth date, and said that a man is masculine and will be more effective for chongxi than your younger sister, I just didn't pursue it because of your infatuation.

“The imperial doctor had try so many times but failed to wake up the person.
Wei Qing woke up within a few days after your marriage.
You have done a great job.
You woke up my great general.
I have to reward you, you tell me, what reward do you want?”

The emperor looked very happy, smiling all over his face.

    “Thank you, Your Majesty, but the general's ability to wake up is due to the excellent medical skills of the Imperial doctor in the Imperial Hospital who cured him.

    Jiang Lin was afraid that he would die to take this reward.

    In order to make Wei Yunzhao died quickly, the emperor who even believed that Yang (male) Chongxi was more effective, if he really found out that Wei Yunzhao’s waking up had something to do with him, he probably wouldn't even be able to survive tonight.

    This man obviously didn't trust both him and Wei Yunzhao, and started probing them step by step since they entered the door.

    They only entered the door after the eunuch reported, but he pretended that he didn't see them, so Wei Yunzhao had to kneel down in embarrassment before saying hypocritically that there was no need to kneel.
He also arranged for eunuchs to help him, to test whether there was no strength in Wei Yunzhao’s legs, and there might be some new tricks in the future.

    Emperor Changde was determined to give him some credit, “Why not? Yongfu and the imperial doctor have told me that if you hadn't taken good care of him, Wei Qing would never have woken up so quickly.
Since you are embarrassed , then I will reward you directly, and I will reward you with a hundred acres of fertile land, a hundred taels of gold, and a few bolts of cloth that have just entered the palace, what do you think?”

    Jiang Lin didn't dare to say anything except knelt down to thank him.

    “That's about the same.
If that's the case, you need to take care of my general more attentively in the future.
If anything happens to him, I'll only ask you,” Emperor Changde said half-jokingly and half-threateningly.

    Jiang Lin responded with a louder voice: “Yes, Xiaomin must do his best to live up to the emperor's expectations.”

[小民 xiǎo mín: ordinary people; commoner; civilian]

The coldness flashed across Emperor Changde's face, but he quickly returned to his original state and turned to speak to Wei Yunzhao.

    After a few sentences, Wei Yunzhao took out the tiger amulet and offered it with both hands, “Your Majesty, I have come to return the tiger amulet.
Chen doesn't even have the face to hold this thing anymore, please let the emperor do it.”

    Yongfu took the tiger amulet from Wei Yunzhao's hand and presented it to Emperor Changde, but Emperor Changde didn’t accept it, “Wei Qing is serious, you have made great contributions in fighting for my Dayue, and you are a hero of my Dayue.
If I treat the hero of Dayue like this because of your leg injury, won’t people in the world think that I can’t tolerate loyal ministers and good generals ?”

“the generals need to guard, I can’t just occupy the position and do nothing, that won’t only harm the country and the people, but also I can’t accept myself as a general but can’t go to the battlefield, I implore the emperor to do it.” Wei Yunzhao struggled to kneel.

    Emperor Changde stared at Wei Yunzhao for a moment, making sure that what he said was not a lie, and then sighed helplessly, “Wei Qing is dedicated to my great Dayue, and he has a heart.
Wei Qing family can no longer be a military commander, so I will appoint you as the governor of the Zhongshu Political Committee, this position is now vacant, and you will come to serve when your legs are better, what does Wei Qing think?”

    Hearing such a considerate arrangement, Wei Yunzhao naturally there is no dissatisfaction, he returned the Tiger amulet and lost his military power, and he was no longer a general.
Those in Shengjing would definitely not let the Wei family go.
But if he was still a second-rank member of the imperial court, even if he had a name but no real power, it was better than nothing.

    The Wei family had to rely on the so-called Emperor’s favor to survive.

    Wei Yunzhao knelt down to thank him with difficulty, and Emperor Changde answered him, and anyone could tell from his tone that he was really happy.

    After leaving the Xuanzheng Hall, the two of them didn't dare to have any more reactions, and were about to go back to the mansion, but they were stopped by a person dressed like a palace maid after walking a few steps.

    “General Wei, Mrs.
General, the empress is here to invite you.”
