Chapter 88.2

Zuo Zhi: “…”

In fact, Zuo Zhi didn’t know what His Royal Highness the Crown Prince wrote in the letter to Young Master Wen but Eunuch Zhu had specially told her before leaving that if Young Master Wen wanted to go to a certain place after reading that letter, she must follow Young Master Wen.

That’s why she came to the door.

She didn’t know that Young Master Wen didn’t care about that letter and didn’t care about His Royal Highness’s current situation at all.
She thought that since Young Master Wen didn’t ask last time, at least this time he would be unable to restrain himself from asking a few questions.


Zuo Zhi glanced at Wen Chi, who was drinking tea and recalled that Eunuch Zhu said that His Highness the Crown Prince would often sit on the same seat that Young Master Wen often sat on after returning to the palace and he would sit there for an hour or two.

His Royal Highness has left, but Young Master Wen is not even willing to pretend?

Zuo Zhi really wanted to say something but she didn’t dare to say it.
If His Royal Highness knew that she was talking too much in front of Young Master Wen, death would be the least punishment.

Seeing that the cup of tea was about to finish again, Wen Chi looked up, only to see Zuo Zhi still standing there in a daze, staring at him with a dark look in her eyes, not knowing what was going through her mind.

However, Wen Chi was so terrified by Zuo Zhi’s look that his skin got covered with goosebumps.
He quickly put down his teacup and asked a second time: “Miss Zuo Zhi, is there anything else you want?”

Zuo Zhi suddenly came back to her senses: “I’m leaving.”

After saying that, she turned around and walked out.

Looking at Zuo Zhi’s figure, Wen Chi suddenly remembered something: “By the way, Miss Zuo Zhi.”

Zuo Zhi gave a sudden pause and hurriedly came back.
Due to her quick movements, there was no time to conceal the surprise on her face: “Young Master Wen, do you have something to say

“…” Wen Chi didn’t know what Zuo Zhi was happy about.
He touched his nose and then asked, “The girl you impersonated, where did she go? Is she okay?”

Zuo Zhi: “…”

And Wen Chi saw the surprise on Zuo Zhi’s face fade away like a tide.

For a while, Wen Chi became even more puzzled.

After a while, Zuo Zhi smiled reluctantly: “It turns out that Young Master Wen is worried about her, and here I thought Young Master Wen was worried…”

Wen Chi scratched his head:  “Worried about who?”

His Royal Highness, Zuo Zhi thought in his heart, but he didn’t dare to say these three words.

She shook her head: “It’s nothing.” Then she said, “Young Master Wen, don’t worry, I put that girl in a very safe place for the time being.
When Young Master Wen decides to leave for the capital, I will naturally let that girl go.
She won’t suffer any grievances.”

With Zuo Zhi’s guarantee, Wen Chi felt relieved: “That’s good.”


The next day.

Wen Chi asked Ruo Fang to arrange for Zuo Zhi to serve him and asked Zuo Zhi to accompany him when he goes out.

For this reason, Ruo Fang was very dissatisfied.
Although she didn’t dare to lose her temper with Wen Chi, when Wenchi had breakfast,  Ruo Fang was staring straight at him from the side, the grief on her body was almost condensed into substance.

Wen Chi was helpless, after thinking about it, he called Ruo Fang and Zuo Zhi over, and briefly explained to Ruo Fang—in short, Zuo Zhi knows martial arts and that her martial arts skills were not bad, so she could protect him better than those guards.

However, if Ruo Fang didn’t believe him.
The little girl pursed her lips, looking extremely aggrieved: “You’ve only just met her, how do you know she knows martial arts?”

As soon as the words left her mouth, she saw Zuo Zhi silently walk over to the table, pick up the chopstick rest, put it in her palm, close her five fingers, then apply a little force and when she opened her palm the small chopstick had broke into seven or eight pieces.

Ruo Fang looked at the chopstick, then at Zuo Zhi’s expressionless face and swallowed silently.

In the afternoon, a servant came to tell Wen Chi that the official who took over the affairs of the fourth prince had arrived and asked Wen Chi to hurry over to meet him.

When Wen Chi walked into the hall, he saw a person with his back turned to him, talking with Governor Zhou who was not short, but fat and familiar.

Wen Chi looked carefully as he walked forward.

Before he approached, the man heard his footsteps and turned around abruptly.
Seeing that it was Wen Chi, he narrowed his eyes and smiled slightly: “Young Master Wen, long time no see.”

Wen Chi was startled: “Lord Yin!”

The official who took over the affairs of the fourth prince turned out to be Yin Shangshu who had helped him before!

GovernorZhou’s surprised eyes wandered between Yin Shangshu and Wen Chi for two or three times, and hesitantly asked, “Lord Yin and Young Master Wen are old acquaintances?”

After hearing Governor Zhou’s words, Wen Chi realized that Yin Shangshu didn’t know about his change of identity and suddenly felt a sense of crisis.

But before he could speak, he saw Yin Shangshu nodded and said with a smile: “Young Master Wen is the fourth younger brother of General Lin.
I know General Lin, so naturally I know him too.”

Wen Chi’s breath was stuck in his throat, and after he heard this he slowly relaxed.

Governor Zhou smiled awkwardly: “So that’s how it is.”

After exchanging pleasantries, Yin Shangshu called everyone to hold a brief meeting in the main hall to get a general idea of ​​the current progress of locust control.

Now with the support of the capital, everyone is performing their own duties.
Although the progress is slow, the situation in Jinzhou is gradually improving.
It’s just that one bite can’t make a big fat man.
It will take a lot of time and effort to stabilize the disaster. 

Seeing that it is already the beginning of autumn and when winter comes, many things will become difficult and everyone has a sense of urgency.

Only when the sun set, did Yin Shangshu let everyone disperse.

Wen Chi had something to say to Yin Shangshu, but considering it was inconvenient right now, he planned to go back and talk to him later.
But Yin Shangshu stopped him first: “Young Master Wen, please stay back for a moment”

So Wen Chi stayed under the envious eyes of others.

After Wen Chi and Yin Shangshu were the only two people left in the hall, Wen Chi hurried over and sat down on the chair opposite Yin Shangshu.

“Lord Yin, thanks for covering for me just now, I am truly grateful.”

Lord Yin smiled indifferently and said, “It’s nothing.”

Speaking of this, Wen Chi became curious again: “But then again, how did Lord Yin know that I claimed to be General Lin’s fourth younger brother Lin Yuan?”

“To be honest…” Lord Yin paused, before saying, “I was entrusted by His Highness the Crown Prince to come here, and it was His Highness the Crown Prince who told someone to inform me.”

Shi Ye?

Wen Chi was surprised but in the end, he could not hold back and asked, “Is His Highness the Crown Prince well?”

Yin Shangshu sighed, hesitated for a moment, then shook his head slightly: “Not well.”
