Chapter 90.1

Shi Ye fell asleep for a long time.

When he opened his eyes again, the sky outside the window darkened at some point.

There were flames dancing in the two candlesticks on the table and the dim yellow candlelight filled the small bedroom but it was a pity that Shi Ye couldn’t feel any warmth.

Now that autumn is here, the temperature is gradually getting colder.

Shi Ye felt a headache and sat up from the bed while rubbing his temples.

Seeing this, Eunuch Zhu, who was guarding the side, hurried to the table and poured a cup of warm tea.
Eunuch Zhu held the teacup in both hands, bowed his waist, buried his head and carefully handed over the tea: “Does Your Highness want to moisten your throat?”

Shi Ye lifted the quilt on his body, sat by the bed for a while and then reached out to take the tea from Eunuch Zhu: “When did you come back?”

Eunuch Zhu replied in a low voice: “Replying back to Your Royal Highness, this servant returned to the capital at shen shi1(3-5pm time period).”

Shi Ye hummed, holding the teacup in his hand but he didn’t intend to take a sip.
He looked down at his five fingers holding the cup, as if he was in deep thought or in a daze.

Until Eunuch Zhu called softly: “Your Royal Highness?”

Shi Ye snapped back to his senses and looked up at Eunuch Zhu.

Although Eunuch Zhu was used to serving by Shi Ye’s side, at this moment he was frightened by Shi Ye’s stern eyes, that his body stiffened, standing in place like a piece of wood with cold sweat running down his forehead.

Fortunately, soon after, Shi Ye gathered himself and quickly suppressed the anger in his eyes and asked in a low voice, “How is he?”

Eunuch Zhu replied tremblingly: “Your Highness, with Liu De and Zuo Zhi on his side, Young Master Wen is safe, but ……”

Shi Ye asked, “But what?”

Eunuch Zhu pursed his lips and then said in a small voice: “It’s just that Young Master Wen will inevitably encounter various dangers when he goes out.
Now that the situation is tense and those people are watching with great interest, more and more people may have their eyes on Young Master Wen’s head…… servant thinks that Your Highness should let Young Master Wen Come back.”

After saying this, Shi Ye laughed: “Do you think he is willing to come back?”


Eunuch Zhu turned speechless and the word he was prepared to say was suddenly stumped.

Not to mention that it is inconvenient for Young Master Wen to leave at present, depending on Young Master Wen’s own wishes, he should also be unwilling to leave.
On top of that, Young Master Wen didn’t even inquire about the news of His Highness the Crown Prince, as if he had completely forgotten that such a person exists. 

Thinking of this, Eunuch Zhu broke out in a cold sweat.
For some reason, he suddenly sympathized with His Highness the Crown Prince.

Shi Ye raised his eyes and glanced at Eunuch Zhu’s silent expression and suddenly felt irritable.
He put the tea cup back into Eunuch Zhu’s hand, got up and walked out: “Forget it, since he wants to stay there, I will let him stay.”

Eunuch Zhu quickly put the teacup on the table, bowed his waist and hurriedly trotted behind Shi Ye: “Your Highness, this servant has one more thing to say.”

Shi Ye didn’t turn his head back: “What’s the matter?”

Eunuch Zhu lowered his voice intentionally: “The servant just got the news that the man has been caught.
He was indeed sent by the Hua family, but he is not sure who sent him.”

Shi Ye paused in his steps, turned his head and there was some coldness in his black eyes.
After a while, he suddenly raised his lips and smiled and the half of his face that was not covered by the mask showed his ruthlessness: “Where is it?”

Eunuch Zhu cautiously approached Shi Ye’s ear and whispered the name of the place.


Not long after Zuo Zhi came to Wen Chi’s side, Wen Chi had the suspicious feeling that one of his guards seemed to have been replaced, the original guard had gone somewhere, and the current guard made him feel more and more like Liu De.

On this day, Wen Chi and Lord Yin had been busy outside for a whole day and it was already evening when they returned to the courtyard.

Wen Chi dismissed the other guards, except for the guard who he suspected as Liu De.

He called the guard into the room and looked at the guard’s face carefully.

In front of him was a completely unfamiliar face, neither good-looking nor ugly, but just plain, the kind you couldn’t find in a crowd.

Originally, Wen Chi wouldn’t pay attention to this face but Wen Chi doesn’t know whether the guards did it on purpose or not, but he had caught him using martial arts.

Then Wen Chi discovered that the guard’s moves were somewhat similar to Liu De’s.

After looking at it, Wen Chi called out softly, “Liu De?”

The guard hummed expressionlessly.

Wen Chi: “!!!”

Wen Chi was shocked, he opened his mouth in a daze for a long time and finally found his voice: “Are you really Brother Liu De?”

The guard still had a numb and unfamiliar face but what came out was Liu De’s voice: “Yes, Young Master Wen.”

Wen Chi had a look of disbelief on his face.
He looked Liu De up and down and found that Liu De really imitated that guard by 100%, it was too similar.
If Liu De hadn’t deliberately shown his cover, he would never have noticed that there was someone else beside him.

“Why are you here?” Wen Chi scratched his nose, “I thought you were returning to the capital with His Royal Highness the Crown Prince.”

Liu De said: “Liu Shan has returned to the capital and Zuo Zhi and I stayed together.
When Young Master Wen returns to the capital, we will go back with you.”

Wen Chi snorted.

Then, the two of them had nothing more to say.

1(3-5pm time period)
