even more strange that this servant girl would knock on his door at night.

Wen Chi felt vigilant, stepped back calmly and made a gesture to close the door.

Then he suddenly heard the maid say: “Young Master Wen.”

Wen Chi: “…”

Isn’t this Zuo Zhi’s voice?

The maid said: “Young Master Wen, can the servants come in?”

It was definitely Zuo Zhi’s voice.

Wen Chi glanced out subconsciously and saw that the courtyard outside was covered by thick night, and only the general outline could be seen but fortunately no one else was there.

So he stepped aside a little and watched the maid walk into the room.

Zuo Zhi, who had disguised herself as a servant girl and had no intention of reverting to her original form, walked straight to the table before she stopped and turned to look at Wen Chi, whose expression was incomprehensible.


“Young Master Wen.” Zuo Zhi said, “Forgive me for coming to disturb you at such a late hour.”

Wen Chi waved his hand: “It’s okay.”

He used to think that the dog prince was very arrogant.
While pretending to be disabled, he was not afraid that others would find out that he was pretending to be disabled and would fly around the walls of the palace.

Only now did he know that not only the dog prince was arrogant, but also the people around the dog prince.
As soon as the fourth prince and General Lin left, Zuo Zhi knocked on his door in disguise.

Perhaps the guards who lived in the few rooms not far away never dreamed that the uninvited guest they were guarding against did not sneak in through the wall but knocked on the door openly.

Never go to the temple without a reason1( I wouldn’t come to you if I hadn’t something to ask of you), Zuo Zhi definitely didn’t come here at night to chat with him.

Wen Chi poured a cup of tea and put it on the table in front of Zuo Zhi and gestured again: “Sit down and talk.”

Zuo Zhi said, “Thank you, Young Master.”

Despite what she said, she had no intention of sitting down at all.

Seeing this, Wen Chi didn’t force her.
He just sat down and poured himself a cup of tea.

Zuo Zhi waited for Wen Chi to finish sipping the tea slowly and methodically before she spoke and said, “Young Master Wen, did you read the letter His Highness the Crown Prince sent you?”

Wen Chi immediately understood that what Zuo Zhi was talking about was the note with only one sentence.


He said succinctly: “I read it.”

Zuo Zhi thought that Wen Chi would continue talking.
She waited for a long time but did not hear any words from Wen Ci, so she spoke again: “This servant will be by Young Master Wen’s side at all times and if Young Master needs help, he can tell this servant.”

Wen Chi said, “Okay.”

After speaking, he held up the teacup with both hands and took another sip of tea.

Zuo Zhi just watched Wen Chi quietly.
She watched Wen Chi drink most of a cup of tea, but he still remained silent, as if he didn’t care what was written in the letter.

There was a stalemate for a long time.

Zuo Zhi held back but Wen Chi became more and more confused.
He carefully put the teacup on the table and looked up at Zuo Zhi, whose expression was gradually becoming grave.

He asked in a low voice, “Miss Zuo Zhi, do you still have anything else to say?”

Zuo Zhi shook her head, nodded again and finally said: “This servant came here to inform Young Master Wen.
Now that this servant has finished what I want to say, I won’t disturb the Young Master ‘s rest.”

Wen Chi got up: “I’ll send you out.”

Zuo Zhi refused him: “This servant can go out by herself, Young Master Wen should rest early.”

Hearing what she said, Wen Chi was not polite and sat back directly and even lifted the teapot and poured himself a full cup of tea, without raising his head, he said politely: “Take care, Miss Zuo Zhi.”
