“My lord! The lord is going to retire, so take me with you too!” Xu Shu suddenly said firmly behind him.
For some reason, hearing this sentence, Luo Chen’s eyes suddenly burst into tears. This proves that he Luochen did not rely on his own blood or the system, and he could have loyal and honest officials by his side.
“Sir… I can’t take you with me…” Luo Chen didn’t look back, because there were tears in his eyes, “Sir, take care.” After saying that, he walked out quickly. Only Xu Shu was left to stare blankly behind him.
Luochen then went to Yizhou and said the same thing. As for Yesuo, Luo Chen thought about it again and again, but just sent a letter telling him to be careful. After receiving this letter, Jesso pondered for a long time, but still could not fully understand what Luo Chen meant, so he had to carefully put the letter away.
Not long after Luochen returned to Chang’an, he received the resignations of Xu Shu and Zhuge Liang, both of which said that the country had been unified and that they would go to live in seclusion between the mountains and rivers. When the court sent someone to look at them, the two had disappeared, and they didn’t know where they had gone in seclusion. For a time, he was shocked. No one knew what was going on, and some coveted their prestigious positions.
After the Chang’an coup, Luo Chen once again summoned his ministers, but this time, instead of showing off his power, he announced the dissolution of the National Intelligence Agency on the spot, which made Zhang Juzheng pale. Luochen didn’t answer, just shook his head and said, “Zhang Juzheng, you have to follow me after all… and this intelligence agency, if it falls into someone else’s hands, it’s better to disband it.” Zhang Juzheng didn’t know what Luochen meant, but Luochen said to Zhang Juzheng. Zhang Juzheng wanted to follow himself. Zhang Juzheng was relieved, as long as he followed the lord, there would be no problem. Later, Luochen ordered the disarmament. Only the basic army was retained, and the rest were returned. The land was allocated according to the land-equalization system. The land-equalization system in Guanzhong Plain and Yizhou has been implemented very well. Opportunity to sort it out.
Everyone heard that this is the meaning of recuperating and resting with the people. So no disagreement. Luochen just sat on the edge calmly, announcing a series of important decisions.
“Sima Yi, I heard that your two sons Sima Shi and Sima Zhao are very smart.” Luo Chen said slowly.
Sima Yi’s heart skipped a beat, and he had to stand up and answer. Since falling on his name last time, Sima Yi has become more careful, more dedicated to his duties, and is usually an honest person. Unexpectedly, this time the dust fell again. “Bring it to me, okay?”
Sima Yi’s legs trembled a little, not knowing what Luo Chen wanted to do. And the unfathomable look Luochen gave him last time became an indelible shadow in his heart. It was so terrifying, as if he was staring at him all the time. Sima Yi had no choice but to call his sons over, and Luo Chen sat leaning on the chair, his eyes cold.
“Study hard, study hard, read the book of sages, learn great wisdom…” Luo Chen said intentionally or unintentionally. But cold eyes glanced at them coldly. Luochen took a lot of effort to restrain himself, telling himself that it was useless, that if there is one less Sima, there will be others, and history is not personal history.
Speaking of which, Luochen stood up suddenly and handed over the commanding of his army to Emperor Xian of Han who was sleepy on the stage. At the same time, a Prime Minister’s order spread to all the military camps: the Prime Minister will retire, and the army will support the Emperor Han. Of course, the command is absolutely effective when Luochen is present, but after Luochen is gone, he will not know.
After the delivery, Luo Chen left the hall without looking back.
The next day, Emperor Xian summoned his ministers to the court again according to the agreement, and Zhang Juzheng, Xu Da, Chang Yuchun and others who were prominent in the court hall disappeared collectively. Emperor Xian was stunned for a long time before he said, “Where’s the prime minister?”
The next person showed Luochen’s delivery order to Emperor Xian: the prime minister retired, and the army supported the emperor of Han. Emperor Xian’s eyes were confused, and he looked at the ministers at a loss, as if he couldn’t understand what that meant.
The cloth slipped down from Emperor Xian’s hand, it was a weight of power that he couldn’t lift.
The sun rises as usual, and history continues to gallop.
