Chapter 52 

“Shi Ye, wait, wait a minute…” Wen Chi’s voice was tinged with sobs, he felt his tears come out and slide down the corners of his eyes, he couldn’t recall what had just happened, he didn’t even know what he was saying at this moment, “You, wait a minute…”

The tears stained his face.

Compared to the shock and fear, what Wen Chi felt most now was pain.
For the first time, he found that doing such a thing would hurt so much that he couldn’t even speak clearly.

It’s a pity that Shi Ye didn’t intend to stop but leaned over and placed a soothing kiss on the corner of his eye.

But the kiss had no effect on Wen Chi.

In the end, Wen Chi couldn’t bear it anymore and he didn’t know where the strength came from but he broke away from Shi Ye’s hands that bound his hands and pushed Shi Ye away.

Shi Ye didn’t seem to expect such a violent reaction from Wen Chi and was stunned for a moment.

While Shi Ye was in a daze, Wen Chi suddenly raised his foot and kicked Shi Ye’s abdomen.

He used ten percent of his strength on this kick causing Shi Ye to let out a muffled grunt and his eyebrows immediately knitted up.

“Wen Chi.” Most of the lust on Shi Ye’s face faded, his expression was gloomy and the fury in his eyes was obvious when he looked at Wen Chi, “How dare you…..”

Before he finished speaking, Wen Chi kicked him again.

This time, Wen Chi kicked Shi Ye directly in the chest.

In an instant, it was as if the air around him had frozen.

In the silence, Wen Chi’s face turned pale and his eyes widened as he stared at Shi Ye in horror.
He knew that Shi Ye was angry, so he hastily pulled his foot back and wanted to run but before he could barely bring his food back when a cold hand grabbed his ankle.

Shi Ye’s eyes were terribly dark, he propped up his upper body and looked down at Wen Chi condescendingly, his gaze so cold that it seemed like it could freeze him at any moment.

Wen Chi was so frightened that his teeth were chattering.
He regretted the two kicks he had just given on impulse but there was no medicine for regret, so he could only tremble and beg for forgiveness: “Your Highness, I was wrong!”

“Oh.” Shi Ye sneered coldly, grabbed Wen Chi’s ankle and dragged him back a little, “You are very quick to admit your mistakes.”

Seeing that he was getting closer and closer to Shi Ye, Wen Chi’s heart became cold for a moment.

“I really know I’m wrong, I shouldn’t have kicked you just now.” Wen Chi was so scared that he begged for mercy.
His red eyes were like those of a rabbit and he stared at Shi Ye without blinking as if he Shi Ye would reach out and strangle him to death if he blinked even for a second.

Shi Ye dragged Wen Chi in front of him and when he looked down, he saw that Wen Chi’s clothes were in disarray, and his undershirt was barely hanging on his body that it could not cover his white shoulders and chest.

Wen Chi’s trembling body looked really pitiful and he didn’t know where he got so many tears from, his eyes and face were full of tears, exuding a crystal luster under the moonlight.

Shi Ye leaned forward.

Sensing his movement, Wen Chi curled up in shock, as if he were a man-eating monster, wishing to draw a galaxy between them.

Shi Ye immediately froze.

However, Wen Chi’s mood didn’t improve much, he looked like he was scared and anxious.
The tears wrapped in his eyes never stopped flowing.
He looked at Shi Ye pitifully, his mouth was still whispering words of confession.

Shi Ye quietly looked at Wen Chi, whose eyes were streaming with tears.
The coldness in his eyes gradually settled, leaving only bottomless depth and darkness, his face lost all expression and he just looked at Wen Chi for a long time.

Finally, he slowly stretched out his hand and placed it on Wen Chi’s head.

Although Wen Chi didn’t avoid his touch, he visibly flinched and Wen Chi seemed to have exhausted all his strength to keep himself still.

Shi Ye lowered his eyes and the thick eyelashes cast a small shadow under his eyes, which also covered the dark surge in his dark eyes.
The corners of his mouth slightly curled downwards and he spoke with an unusually calm voice: “Are you so afraid of Bengong?”

Wen Chi lowered his head, not daring to look into Shi Ye’s eyes.

He didn’t know if Shi Ye’s words were a proposition, maybe in Shi Ye’s mind, no matter how he answered it, it would be wrong.

After hesitating for a while, Wen Chi chose to tell the truth: “Yes.”

Shi Ye asked, “Why?”

“Because…” Wen Chi paused, gritted his teeth and said, “Because I look like your enemy and you keep me by your side because of that.
If one day you want revenge, then wouldn’t I have to die in place of your enemy ……”

Shi Ye said: “What if Bengong says that that person is not my enemy?”

Wen Chi froze for a moment.

Shi Ye continued: “That person is an old friend of Bengong.”

Wen Chi was startled by Shi Ye’s words, he suddenly raised his tear stained face to look at Shi Ye.

“An old friend?” Wen Chi asked in surprise, “You have an old friend who looks very similar to me?”

Shi Ye didn’t rush to respond to Wen Chi’s words, his hand resting on Wen Chi’s head went down and his cold fingertips landed on the corner of Wen Chi’s eyes.

He wanted to wipe away the tears from Wen Chi’s eyes with his thumb.

This time Wen Chi didn’t dodge but he still flinched.
It could be seen that Wen Chi was still afraid of him but dared not disobey him even more.

Shi Ye’s eyes darkened a bit, in the end he didn’t wipe away the tears on Wen Chi’s face instead he took his hand back calmly.

Afterwards, Shi Ye got up and straightened his clothes, took off his robe and threw it to Wen Chi who was still sitting on the grass.

“Put it on.”

Wen Chi let out an oh and hurriedly took the robe and fumbled to put it on herself.

“Get up.” Shi Ye stood with his back to Wen Chi, his voice was full of indifference, “I will send you back.”

Wen Chi didn’t expect Shi Ye to let him go so easily.
He was surprised and delighted at the same time and he got up from the grass.

But as soon as he was on his feet, an unspeakable pain suddenly came from a spot behind him.

Wen Chi gasped, his body trembling slightly in pain.

He tried to take two steps forward, only to feel the pain become more pronounced, so much so that his legs went weak and he fell to the ground.

When Shi Ye didn’t hear Wen Chi’s response for a long time, he turned his head and saw Wen Chi sitting on the ground, looking up at the moon in the sky with despair written on his face.

After feeling Shi Ye’s gaze, Wen Chi said hoarsely: “You go back first, I’ll sit for a while before leaving.”

Shi Ye asked: “How will you go?”

Wen Chi stared blankly at Shi Ye and replied stupidly, “Walk with my two legs.”

“…” The corners of Shi Ye’s mouth seemed to twitch before continuing, “Bengong said this is behind the imperial garden, if you don’t mind being seen like this by those people, Bengong doesn’t mind letting you walk back on your own.

Wen Chi: “…”

He had forgotten about that, perhaps because he had lived in the Eastern Palace for a long time, he always subconsciously thought that he was still in the Eastern Palace and that it was Shi Ye’s territory, so he didn’t have to care so much.

Seeing that Wen Chi was in a tangle, Shi Ye immediately walked over expressionlessly, bent down and hugged Wen Chi horizontally.

Wen Chi was taken aback, his face, which finally recovered some color, turned completely pale again and he struggled subconsciously.

“Wait a minute, I’m not dressed yet…”

Shi Ye glanced at Wen Chi, then looked away: “Even if you were given ten days, you wouldn’t be able to put on these clothes.”

It was only then that Wen Chi remembered that his clothes and trousers had been torn by Shi Ye and remembering what had just happened, his face once again turned a few shades whiter and he could only hold on to the robe wrapped around his body.

Shi Ye tapped his toes and soon leaped through the palace roofs. 

Wen Chi closed his eyes and quietly leaned against Shi Ye’s arms.

Not long after, Shi Ye quietly landed in the courtyard of Bamboo Flute Residence with Wen Chi in his arms.

Originally, Shi Ye wanted to carry Wen Chi into the house but Wen Chi refused to let him in no matter what.

Under Wen Chi’s desperate struggle, Shi Ye put him down.

It was already late at night and the surrounding was so quiet that it seemed as if he could hear the sound of the wind and the chirping of night birds as they fluttered.
Wen Chi couldn’t see Shi Ye’s expression clearly in the dim light.

“Thank you.” Wen Chi said, “It’s getting late, you should go back and rest.”

After speaking, he suddenly remembered the robe wrapped around his body and quickly took off the robe and handed it to Shi Ye, “Return this to its rightful owner.”

Shi Ye’s gaze never left Wen Chi’s body.
No matter how dark the night was, he could still clearly see Wen Chi’s little movement and also felt Wen Chi’s uncontrollable messy breathing when facing him.
