Chapter 9

When Wen Chi returned to the Bamboo Flute Residence, Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao, who had been busy all afternoon, had already made a somewhat decent fruit cake.

Although it still looks a bit shoddy, the ancient times are not as good as the modern times with complete tools and materials and it was already good enough to make it this far.

“Young Master Wen!” The two little girls still had white flour on their faces.
They were very happy and said cheerfully like little birds, “You taste it and see how it is.”

He took a bite of the cake and said, “Next time, put more icing sugar in the milk.”

Ruo Tao frowned, “But Young Master Wen… this cake is already sweet enough.”

Wen Chi said,  “Put it, it’s okay.”

Hearing this, Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao looked at each other and said nothing.

After dinner, Wen Chi quickly felt sleepy.

For some reason, although he only stayed in the Crown Prince’s study for less than two hours, he was even more tired than when he was busy making cakes a few days ago.
So shortly after he closed his eyes, he fell into a deep sleep.

The next day,

Another busy day making cakes.

Wen Chi thought that after the embarrassing incident yesterday, the crown prince would not let him go to the study again.

Unfortunately, it turns out that the crown prince was not among the embarrassed people yesterday, only him!

Seeing Eunuch Zhu waiting in the courtyard, Wen Chi was stunned for a moment and then resigned himself to go with him.

Bamboo Flute Residence is not close to the crown prince’s residence.
It takes a while to walk.
Imperial concubines and above can take the chariot.
Unfortunately, Wen Chi is just a poor, helpless and humble male concubine…

Wen Chi’s legs hurt when he walked, but he didn’t dare to stretch out his hand to rub them.
He sighed secretly, nostalgic for the days when he lay in the bamboo flute Residence like a salted fish.

Just then, in the corner of his eye, he caught a glimpse of a few people walking towards him.

Before he could look up, he saw Eunuch Zhu who was walking in front paused, arched his body slightly and said in a shrill voice, “This servant greets Young Master Yue.”

This Young Master Yue said in a strange tone, “Yo, Eunuch Zhu, where are you going?”

Eunuch Zhu smiled without answering and waved the whisk in his hand: “The sun is hot today, it’s not good for your skin when you walk outside for a long time.
So you should go back to the courtyard and rest.”

Having said this, Young Master Yue couldn’t ask any more questions, so he could only reluctantly say, “Yue Gui, thank you Eunuch Zhu for your kindness.”

Yue Gui?

Wen Chi froze.

No wonder he felt that the person’s figure and tone of voice were so familiar.
It turned out to be Yue Gui, whom he had met a few days ago in the pavilion – also the brother of the dead Yue Shan.

Thinking of Yue Shan, Wen Chi could always see the unwilling and resentful eyes of that girl after her death.

Although he knew that Yue Shan was killed because she was plotting against the crown prince but from another point of view, Yue Shan was killed after leaving with him, maybe those people will blame him for Yue Shan’s death.

Thinking of this, Wen Chi buried his head even lower, wishing he could put his face in his clothes.

It’s a pity that heaven didn’t grant his wish and Yue Gui saw a person behind Eunuch Zhu from afar.
Originally he came with the intention of finding out what was going on and now that he is closer, how can he not let go of this opportunity?

Yue Gui took the opportunity to pass by and take a look.

The next moment, his originally calm expression instantly distorted. 

“It’s you!”  Yue Gui recognized Wen Chi at a glance.
The exquisite face with light makeup was full of shock.
He pointed to Wen Chi.
He pointed at Wen Chi, “It’s actually you!”

 Wen Chi knew he couldn’t hide, so he had to look up at Yue Gui.

Today’s Laurel is dressed in bright red and purple, but with his overly flirtatious face, not only does it not make people feel gaudy but also a little more exotic and charming.

Wen Chi has seen so many men come and go, but this is the first time he has seen such a beautiful man.

Beautiful yet incomplete….

The man’s face was hideous, and his fierce eyes stared at Wen Chi, as if he would come at any time and devour him alive.

Wen Chi was calm on the surface, but he secretly leaned back behind Eunuch Zhu.

Eunuch Zhu noticed Wen Chi’s movement and immediately flicked the whisk, stood in front of Wen Chi arrogantly and said in a shrill voice, “Is there anything else, Young Master Yue?”

 Yue Gui noticed the defensive intentions of Eunuch Zhu towards Wen Chi and suddenly his face became so dark that it looked like water could drip out.

He slowly restrained the hatred in his eyes, lowered his head and said through clenched teeth, “No.”

Eunuch Zhu said, “Young Master Yue, take care.”

Yue Gui’s expression was unfathomable, he looked deeply at Wen Chi, turned his head and walked away.
The two palace maids who were serving him, bowed to Eunuch Zhu and then hurriedly followed behind him.

Wen Chi watched Yue Gui leave and the stone hanging in his heart also slowly fell down.

After walking a little further, the group finally arrived outside the crown prince’s study.

Wen Chi lowered his head again and walked in behind Eunuch Zhu like a puppet.

When he came to the study, Wen Chi realized that there were not only the crown prince and the eunuch, but also three officials standing pensively in front of the desk, as if they were reporting something to the crown prince.

As the biggest villain in the novel, Shi Ye, the crown prince, is still sitting leisurely in his wheelchair, as usual – eyes closed, head supported, not sure if he is listening to the officials or has fallen asleep.

The officials hunched over tremblingly and looked at each other several times.

In this regard, none of them dared to say anything or ask anything.
Everyone was afraid that they would be dealt with by the prince if they were not careful.

Wen Chi’s arrival undoubtedly broke the frozen atmosphere.
The officials’ cautious voices stopped abruptly, turned their heads one after another and cast their eyes on Wen Chi.
