Chapter 60.2

When he was about to run to the gate, he couldn’t help but turn his head and glanced at the man, only to see the man standing motionless, holding a red lantern in his hand.

He didn’t mean to chase Wen Chi, but stared at Wen Chi meaningfully.

Wen Chi frowned, feeling a very strong sense of strangeness in his heart—that person tricked him in, would he just watch him run away?

Unexpectedly, just as he finished thinking this way, two black shadows suddenly appeared from the grass on both sides of the gate.

The two black shadows moved extremely quickly and before Wen Chi had time to react, they rushed over and pressed Wen Chi to the ground.

Wen Chi almost vomited blood under the sudden weight, he immediately shouted at the top of his voice, “Help! Help…”

Before he finished speaking, one of the people who was pressing on him raised his hand and slammed on the back of his neck forcefully.

Wen Chi suddenly felt a sharp pain in the back of his neck.

And immediately afterwards, his eyes blurred and he lost consciousness.


“Young Master Wen, wake up.” Someone whispered in Wen Chi’s ear, “Young Master Wen?”

Wen Chi’s consciousness gradually returned and the first thing he felt was the pain on the back of his neck, a burning pain, as if thousands of ants were biting his skin, and he hissed in pain.

“Young Master Wen.” The man’s voice sounded again, “Are you alright?”

Wen Chi didn’t think he seemed to be fine, but now he was in so much pain that he was in no mood to refute that person’s words.

After waiting for a while, he opened his eyes with a little difficulty.

The first thing that came into view was a familiar face.
The man frowned, the corners of his mouth were slightly pursed, his face was full of worry and his eyes were full of sadness.
He got very close, and the hot breath he exhaled sprinkled all on Wen Chi’s face.

“Hua, Young Master Hua?” Wen Chi was taken aback by Hua Zi Zang’s enlarged face, and subconsciously wanted to lean back but there was a wall behind him and no matter how hard he tried, he couldn’t pull the distance between him and Hua Zi Zang.

In the end, it was Hua Zi Zang who noticed Wen Chi’s emotions, smiled awkwardly, turned around and sat next to Wen Chi.

Hua Zi Zang smiled bitterly: “You have been in a coma for half an hour, if you continue to sleep like this, I don’t think I will be able to explain to His Royal Highness the Crown Prince.”

Wen Chi silently looked down at the rope around him, and then looked up at Hua Zi Zang, who was also tied up, and was silent for a moment before he said : “Can we still go back alive to see His Royal Highness the Crown Prince?”

Hua Zi Zang was not too sure, and hesitantly said, “If they only want money, they might let us go soon.”

Wen Chi asked, “Who are they?”

Hua Zi Zang shook his head blankly: “When I came back this afternoon, they hid in the closet in my bedroom and attacked me when I was not paying attention.
I saw that their faces were very strange and they were familiar with the house.
It looks like they may have been prepared for a long time.”

Wen Chi said: “Since they were prepared, would they still let us go easily?”

“…” Hua Zi Zang was at a loss for words and finally sighed after a long while, “If I had known earlier, I would not have driven away the two people that Prince Xuan arranged for me.
I thought I was causing trouble to Prince Xuan but I never thought that I would be harming myself.

Wen Chi didn’t speak any more.

He was very uncomfortable, not only the pain in the back of his neck was unbearable but also his limbs were terribly numb.
He really wanted to move his hands and feet, but his body was bound tightly so it was very difficult to move.

After struggling for a long time, he finally gave up and leaned against the wall resignedly, silently observing the surrounding environment.

This should be a firewood shed.
Right opposite them, firewood was piled up and the ground was also covered with dry branches.
The entire firewood shed had no windows and only a wooden door that was not very strong was closed tightly.

The woodshed was similar to the one in Wen Chi’s compound and it seemed that they had not yet left Hua Zi Zang’s compound, which meant that they had not yet left the Zhou Mansion.

“Young Master Hua.” Wen Chi suddenly remembered, “Do you know martial arts?”

Hearing this, Hua Zi Zang said awkwardly: “Sorry, I don’t practice martial arts.”

Wen Chi paused, and then thought of another idea: “Do you think if we call out for help now, we can call for General Lin?”

Hua Zi Zang thought about it for a while, then sighed: “Although General Lin lives not far away, he may not be close enough to hear us.
Unfortunately, this place is remote and there are no other people living nearby.
Even if there is someone, I’m afraid we’ll be in trouble before they get here.”

Despite what he said, they couldn’t just sit there and wait for death.

They tried to untie the ropes on each other but the ropes were tied too tightly and knotted that they could not move the ropes even though their fingertips were almost skinned.

Later, Wen Chi tried to stand up with the help of Hua Zi Zang but before he could stand up straight, he heard the wooden door of the firewood shed creak and a tall and burly man walked in from outside.

Wen Chi and Hua Zi Zang froze at the same time.

Seeing this, the man was stunned for a moment, then stepped forward and pushed Wen Chi to the ground.

Wen Chi fell on the ground but fortunately, Hua Zi Zang used his body to cushion him in time, so that he didn’t fall too badly.

“Young Master Hua, Young Master Lin, you are all smart people, be sensible, so that you can save yourself from suffering.” The man threatened viciously, then picked up the handkerchief that Hua Zi Zang had spat out on the ground before, without saying a word and stuffed it back into Hua Zi Zang’s mouth.

Hua Zi Zang: “…”

Wen Chi saw that Hua Zi Zang’s face turned blue instantly and he even wanted to vomit.
