Chamomile stood for the strength to overcome hardships, the persistence to defeat adversity, and the hope to survive.
He used it to cheer himself up, to stay strong when low, not for anyone else, but for Jing Xi.
He had people plant chamomile annually, and watched them sprouting, growing and blooming.
He had always had the unrealistic hope that when the chamomile bloomed again, Jing Xi might come home.
While Huo Yunshen was engaged in his sorrow, Jing Xi finished cleaning and turned around to find him sitting on the bed.
She was planning to do it quietly. But he was awake now. Would he blame her?
Instead of getting mad Huo Yunshen simply hummed.
“How do you feel today?”
He answered frankly. With the medication and some good rest, he did feel much better.
Seeing him not getting mad, Jing Xi felt less intimidated and suggested boldly, “Your Majesty, since you are awake, shall I open the curtains and windows? It needs some fresh air here.”

“Your Majesty, were you laughing at me?” Jing Xi asked courageously.
Huo Yunshen faked some coughing and headed to the bathroom without answering.
Jing Xi pouted and turned to enter the king’s closet.
She was stunned by the hidden world behind the cabinet.
It was spacious. Tailor-made suits in dark colors were lined up in the closet, as well as ironed white shirts and various accessories. They were obviously of top quality and exquisitely made.
