Chapter 10.1

With just a few words, Wen Chi managed to silence the mouths of the officials who were still talking just now.

For a while, the atmosphere in the study fell silent again.

Wen Chi looked at the faces of the officials and finally felt a little embarrassed.
He knew he had accidentally demolished their stage, so he timidly shrunk his shoulders and snapped his mouth shut.

After a long time, the official saluted the crown prince and said: “Your Royal Highness, this minister thinks that dealing with the locust plague is not a trivial matter.
In recent years, our country has spent a lot of money and material resources, but unfortunately the achievements are very little.
Now this hot potato has fallen into the hands of the party members of the fourth prince.
Although the fourth prince has collected talents among the people and tried every means to control the locust plague, this matter cannot be done overnight.
I am afraid it will take three to five years of hard work… If we don’t take this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to  cut off the fourth prince’s right arm, it will be a great loss for us.”

The official said it with sincerity, but unfortunately the crown prince was still resting his chin in a bored way and he didn’t know if he heard the official’s words.

 After the official finished speaking, he lowered his eyes and buried his head.

The other two officials also waited apprehensively for the crown prince’s answer.

Wen Chi also subconsciously put his breathing to the lightest, following the example of Eunuch Zhu and treating himself as a backdrop – now he knows why the novel’s Shi Ye loves to kill so much, with these ambitious officials egging him on left and right, there is no guarantee that Shi Ye’s ambition will not be aroused.

Those officials looked sanctimonious and looked very upright, but none of them cared for the common people from the bottom of their hearts and none of them cared about the locust plague in Jinzhou.
All they cared about was power, status and political struggle.

Wen Chi sighed, he naturally did not want the prince to listen to the views of those officials, he and the prince together are the combination of cannon fodder and villain.
The protagonist’s aura will not come to them.
What’s more, the protagonist also has the system of foreseeing the future, if the crown prince insists on fighting with the fourth prince, it is just like a moth to the flame.

When the crown prince is gone, will he, the cannon fodder who lives on the crown prince, be far from death?

It’s a pity that he has no right to speak on this matter…

Wen Chi looked down at the dark red carpet under his feet, but he didn’t know that Shi Ye’s eyes were always on him and also took in his minuscule change in expression.

“Wen Liang.” Shi Ye suddenly said, “What’s your opinion?”

Wen Chi was stunned for a moment and then he realized that his current name was “Wen Liang”, and immediately said in panic, “Back to His Royal Highness, I am not knowledgeable and I don’t know what to do.”

After hearing the word “Wen Liang”, the official was taken aback for a moment and the next moment they guessed his identity and for a while they could hardly hide the shock in their faces.

His Royal Highness, he actually allowed a male concubine to enter the study room to listen to them discussing important matters…

This is too absurd!

One official immediately cupped his hands and said, “His Royal Highness, I think it’s better to do this sooner than later for fear of missing the right opportunity.”

Shi Ye suddenly raised his hand.

The officer was so frightened that he immediately became silent.

“This matter will be discussed later.” Shi Ye said, “You may leave.”

This tone was like driving away a puppy, when had the three important court officials ever been treated like this? Even the current emperor was courteous to them, but the crown prince’s temper was more perplexing than the emperor’s.
They dared not speak in front of him.

The three officials were hesitant to speak, but in the end they each withdrew unwillingly.

The study room quieted down.

Wen Chi wondered if he should leave too.

Just then, Shi Ye said, “Eat.” 

This sentence was obviously addressed to Wen Chi.
Except for Wen Chi, the palace maids and eunuchs in the study were all motionless, not even daring to raise their heads, as if they were frozen on the spot. 

Before Wen Chi’s brain could react, he obediently picked up the cake on the table with both hands, put it to his mouth and nibbled on it. 

He knew that the crown prince had a strange temper, so he ate especially carefully, but he did not dare to delay, and in the blink of an eye he had wiped out three plates of pastries on the table.

When Wen Chi was eating, Shi Ye tilted his head to look at him.

Wen Chi didn’t know what was on his face that was worth Shi Ye to look at him for such a long time. 

In fact, he had a lot of doubts in his heart.
At this point, he couldn’t help feeling that Shi Ye treated him differently from others.
When Shi Ye asked him for his opinion on dealing with the locust plague, the officials were so shocked that their jaws fell on the ground.

But he couldn’t figure it out.

What is so special about him to Shi Ye? Could it be that Shi Ye was also controlled by the system at fixed times like he was?

Wen Chi was thinking wildly when he heard Shi Ye say indifferently, “Is it delicious?”

Wen Chi recovered and nodded hastily, “It’s delicious.”

Shi Ye glanced at Eunuch Zhu.

Eunuch Zhu got the order and hurriedly walked out of the study.

It didn’t take long for a few palace maids to file in with delicate dishes, carefully put the dishes on the table, buried their heads and then retreated. 

Shi Ye said, “Continue.”
