Chapter 87.1

Wen Chi  stared at the paper for a moment, then collected himself and reached out to pick up the paper: “Thank you for making the trip, Eunuch Zhu.”

Eunuch Zhu smiled.

After Wen Chi put away the small white porcelain bottle and the paper, he stood up: “Does His Royal Highness have any other orders?”

Eunuch Zhu seemed to sigh softly: “His Royal Highness hopes thatYoung Master Wen will take care of himself.”

Hearing this, Wen Chi’s eyelashes fluttered twice but there was no superfluous expression on his face as he nodded and said, “I will.”

Eunuch Zhu added: “Zuo Zhi will stay in Jinzhou for the time being to protect Young Master Wen at all times.
If you encounter any trouble, you can let Zuo Zhi know at any time.”

Wen Chi hummed but he didn’t take Eunuch Zhu’s words to heart.

Seeing that Eunuch Zhu seemed to have nothing else to say, Wen Chi said goodbye, turned around and was about to go out.

However, he had just taken two steps when he heard Eunuch Zhu’s hesitant voice coming from behind him, “Please wait, Young Master Wen….”

Wen Chi stopped in his tracks and turned his head to look: “Eunuch Zhu, is there anything else?”

“Young Master Wen, at that time His Highness returned in a hurry.
It is true that the situation in the capital was tense and now many things have changed drastically.
But no matter what, it is best for Young Master Wen to be cautious and careful with your words and deeds.”

Seeing that Eunuch Zhu lowered his head slightly and the worry on his expression didn’t seem to be fake.
Wen Chi couldn’t help asking: “The situation is tense? Has something big happened?”

It’s a pity that Eunuch Zhu didn’t intend to continue but buried his head even lower: “Those things should not involve Young Master Wen.
Young Master Wen can just concentrate on the matter at hand while being cautious.”

Originally, Wen Chi wanted to inquire about Shi Ye’s news but since Eunuch Zhu didn’t want to say more, he didn’t bother to ask.

He thought he didn’t care about Shi Ye that much anymore and if it wasn’t for Eunuch Zhu suddenly coming to him, he would have thrown Shi Ye to the back of his mind.

This is a good thing.

Wen Chi withdrew his thoughts, bid farewell to Eunuch Zhu and continued to walk outside.

Soon, he saw the woman in red again, standing silently in front of a flower stand, her red veil pulled off her face revealing a strange but beautiful face.

When Wen Chi passed by the woman in red, he paused and called tentatively: “Zuo Zhi?”

The woman in red bowed her head and replied, “Yes.”

Wen Chi looked at her face carefully: “It really is you.”

The disguised Zuo Zhi raised the corners of her mouth and smiled lightly, “Just now, this servant scared Young Master Wen.”

Wen Chi was noncommittal: “That’s not true.”

Zuo Zhi restrained her smile and then said in a slightly apologetic tone: “Forgive me for not being able to send you back at this moment, but in a few days, I will try to contact you.”

Wen Chi naturally knew that Zuo Zhi’s appearance at this moment was not suitable for sending him back to the Zhou Mansion and of course he didn’t want Zuo Zhi to send him back, so he hurriedly said thank you and quickly left the private room.

Although this private room was on the first floor, it was located in a remote place, and no one saw him go in and out.

Wen Chi walked quickly and it didn’t take much effort to arrive at the private room where he had treated guests on the second floor before.
Unexpectedly, all the people in it had left, only a few girls were left to clean up the tables and chairs.

Wen Chi asked, “Where did everyone go?”

One girl said uncertainly: “Are you referring to the gentlemen who dined here and listened to the music? They have already settled the bill and left.”

Wen Chi was a little embarrassed when he heard the word “settled the bill”, so he had to ask the little girl to arrange a carriage for him and hurried back to Zhou Mansion.

Fortunately, his speed was fast enough.
As soon as he got off the carriage, he saw two familiar-looking carriages stop outside the gate of the Zhou Mansion and the anxious figures of Yue Zhicheng and Liu Wen getting off the carriage.

Wen Chi heaved a sigh of relief and walked over quickly: “Brother Yue! Brother Liu!” Then he called out to the others who had gotten off the carriage.

Those people didn’t expect that they would run into Wen Chi outside the Zhou Mansion and their eyes widened.
Liu Wen was the first to react, pointing at Wen Chi and asked in surprise, “Brother Wen, didn’t you get kidnapped by that person? huh? How did you come back?”

As soon as Wen Chi heard Liu Wen’s words, he knew that these people must have thought about all the bad possibilities on their way back.
He didn’t know whether to laugh or cry and said the words he had prepared: “That girl is also a pitiful person.
She thought that I was a rich man who spent a lot of money, so she wanted me to take her in.”

Sure enough, the focus of these people was immediately shifted.

Liu Wen asked with concern: “Did you accept her?”

Wen Chi shook his head: “No.”

Liu Wen and the others simultaneously showed a look of regret, “Ha, it’s a pity.”

Wen Chi: “…”

Even though these people thought Wen Chi’s statement was a bit strange, seeing that Wen Chi was standing in front of them safely, they didn’t ask any further.

So Yue Zhicheng, Liu Wen and others gave up the idea of ​​looking for the Fourth Prince and General Lin, entered the mansion together and then went back to their respective courtyards.
