Chapter 57.1

Sleeping in an inn was more comfortable than sleeping in a carriage.

The next day, Wen Chi woke up refreshed.

Ruo Fang was still as diligent as ever, not only got up early in the morning but also came to Wen Chi’s room, bringing him water to clean him face as well as to applying powder to his face— General Lin’s fourth brother, Lin Yuan, does not have a red mole between his eyebrows, so Wen Chi needs to cover up the red mole between his eyebrows.

It must be said that Ruo Fang’s make-up skills were very good, and she was able to cover up the red mole on Wen Chi’s eyebrow without any trace.

Wen Chi leaned in front of the bronze mirror for a look and subconsciously reached out to touch the center of his eyebrows.

“Don’t do that, Master.” Ruo Fang quickly took his hand, “Although you can’t see anything, when you touch it it will be easy to wipe off the makeup on it.
It’s best not to touch it, Master.”

Wen Chi praised sincerely: “Ruo Fang, you are really dexterous.”

“You flatter me, Young Master.” Ruo Fang squinted her eyes and smiled adorably, then carefully reminded him, “Young Master, try to avoid others from touching you, we are different from those people when we go out, it is better to be careful.”

Wen Chi nodded: “I will.”

After tidying up, Wen Chi and Ruo Fang went downstairs to have breakfast together.

The area on the first floor of the inn is very large, with many tables and chairs.
It is the peak time for dining, and the first floor was almost full and the busy waiters shuttled between the tables.

Wen Chi looked around but didn’t see Shi Jin and the others, so he asked Ruo Fang to find an empty seat and sat down.

As soon as he sat down, he heard a whispering sound coming from the opposite direction, and when he looked up at the sound, he ran into some familiar faces.

These people ……

Isn’t it those young talents who come to Jinzhou with Shi Jin?

Wen Chi didn’t know if he was thinking too much or not but when Shi Jin was not here, these people seemed unwilling to maintain the superficial friendship, seeing Wen Chi raise his eyes to look at them, they quickly lowered their eyes and averted their gaze, pretending that nothing had happened.

Wen Chi knew that these people somewhat looked down on him but he had no intention of getting along with them, as long as they kept to themselves in the future.

After looking away, Wen Chi called the waiter to order food.

“Young Master.” Ruo Fang, who was sitting on the side, also noticed something and approached cautiously, “Aren’t those people the ones who followed the Fourth Prince yesterday?”

Wen Chi finished ordering, waited for the waiter to leave and then replied softly: “Yes.”

Ruo Fang rubbed her nose: “This servant always thinks that they look at Young master a little strangely and they seemed to be discussing the young master just now.”

Wen Chi asked, “Did you hear what they were saying?”

Ruo Fang lowered her head and stammered, “It wasn’t anything good, so don’t ask, my lord.”

Now that Ruo Fang said that, Wen Chi guessed what they must have said—it is very likely that they were looking down on him.

General Lin’s fourth brother, Lin Yuan, was indeed unknown in the capital but now he was able to follow the fourth prince to Jinzhou to deal with state affairs.
So those people must have thought that he had taken advantage of General Lin’s connections.

Seeing that Wen Chi did not speak, Ruo Fang thought that Wen Chi cared about what those people said, so she comforted Wen Chi: “Young Master, your paths are different.
They are not the same as us, so there is no need for us to care what they think.
Moreover, Young Master is so smart, when the time comes, you will definitely be better than them.”

Hearing this, Wen Chi puffed out a smile, and then said sadly, “I hope we can meet with them less in the future.”

Ruo Fang said: “Maybe we can follow General Lin.
General Lin probably won’t go with them.”

Wen Chi thought for a while and thought that what Ruo Fang said made some sense.

He is now General Lin’s younger brother in name, so if he didn’t follow General Lin, who would he follow?

When Wen Chi and Ruo Fang finished their breakfast, the people at the next table still didn’t move.
Seeing that they were about to get up, those people secretly nudged each other and eventually pushed a person over.

The man was dressed in green clothes and had an ordinary appearance.
He belonged to the kind who couldn’t be found after being thrown into the crowd.

At first, when the man came to Wen Chi’s side, Wen Chi thought it was the waiter who came to ask him to pay the bill, so he raised his head and showed an embarrassed smile: “Brother, we have already paid the bill.”

That person: “…”

Wen Chi watched the man’s face darken visibly and was immediately confused.

The man gritted his teeth and asked, “Don’t you remember who I am?”

Wen Chi scratched his head: “Aren’t you the waiter?”

The man was so angry at Wen Chi’s sincere sounding answer that he almost vomited blood, his face was so black that it looked like he had been stuck to the bottom of a pot for two hours., he said angrily: “My surname is Zhang, we met just yesterday! “

Wen Chi cuff was gently pulled by Ruo Fang and he glanced at the people at the neighboring table looking at them with different expressions and instantly understood the identity of the man surnamed Zhang.

It turned out to be one of the gang.

“…” Wen Chi’s face was full of embarrassment, he didn’t even dare to look up at the angry man in front of him and apologized nervously, “Sir Zhang, I’m really sorry, maybe I didn’t notice you before ……”

In fact, it’s not Wen Chi’s fault, the main reason was that this man doesn’t like to talk, and his appearance was not outstanding, so he was really easy to be ignored.

Even Ruo Fang didn’t recognize him in time just now.

It’s just that after Wen Chi finished speaking, the man’s ugly face didn’t ease much.
He took several deep breaths before he could barely suppress the anger that had already welled up in his heart and said: “We have heard that General Lin is brave and good at fighting and has made many achievements but we have seldom heard anything about Young Master Wen’s deeds.
I don’t know how you convinced General Lin to bring his brother out to suffer.”
