Chapter 11.1

Hearing this, Ping An’s face suddenly changed and before he could speak, he had already knelt on the ground.

“Young Master Wen, His Highness the crown prince is the hope of the people all over the world.
Naturally, he is as dazzling as the sun in the sky.” Ping An said in a shrill voice, “Young Master Wen and this slaves are living under the sun brought by the crown prince.
So, never discuss His Highness the Crown Prince in private.”

Wen Chi couldn’t help laughing when he saw Ping An who was kneeling and trembling on the ground.
He bent down and helped him up: “Aren’t you quite audacious before? Why are you afraid now?”

He still remembers how some time ago, Ping An often gave advice in Wen Chi, teaching him how to stand out from the group of concubines in the east palace.

Ping An was helped up by Wen Chi.
Cold sweat was oozing from his forehead and his eyes were drifting around as if he was observing the situation around him.

After a long while, Ping An approached Wen Chi’s ear, cupped his mouth with his hand and whispered, “Young Master Wen, this is the East Palace there are ears on the wall, be careful of what you say.”

This time it was Wen Chi’s turn to be startled.

He didn’t dare to look around, he could only stiffen his neck and wait for a while with a white face, before he whispered in a tone just like Ping An, “Can I speak now?”

Ping An was amused by his nervous appearance and smiled.
Then he hurriedly pursed his lips and said: “Young Master Wen is the master of our Bamboo flute residence, so if you want to talk, you can talk.”

Wen Chi hesitated whether to continue the conversation just now.

At that moment, Ruo Tao, who had washed her hands clean, walked over happily: “Young Master Wen!”

Don’t know if it was because Ping An, had his back to Ruo Tao and was startled by her sudden voice, but he shivered a little and he hurriedly collected his expression.
Then he intentionally raised his voice and said to Wen Chi: “After serving His Royal Highness, Young Master Wen, must be tired.
Why don’t you go and rest first and wait for the servants to prepare the evening meal before calling Young Master Wen to get up.”

When Ruo Tao approached, she heard these words and let out a giggle: “Is Young Master Wen going to rest?”

Ping An said: “Young Master Wen is a little tired.”

“Then, Young Master Wen, take a rest.” Ruo Tao said with a smile, “Young Master Wen, don’t worry, this servant and Ruo Fang have already picked up a lot of milk skin and are just waiting to knead the cream.”

Wen Chi looked at Ping An, who was calm and at Ruo Tao, who was smiling with red lips and white teeth.
Although a strange feeling rose in his heart that was hard to ignore, he didn’t say anything and turned around and entered the bedroom.

He changed his clothes and saw Ping An carefully walking in with a water basin.

Wen Chi was not quite used to being waited on, so he asked Ping An to leave first and he himself washed his face then put the handkerchief on the edge of the water basin.

After he lay on the bed, he realized that not only did Ping An not leave, but he was still waiting not far away, hunched over his waist with a sad frown on his face as if he wanted to say something. 

Wen Chi said, “Ping An, come here.”

Ping An quickly walked over.

Wen Chi thought that Ping An might have a lot to say.
He deliberated for a moment and changed his question: “When you said that there are ears on the wall, is it across the courtyard or across the wall?”

The Bamboo Flute residence is surrounded by large and small courtyards .
When Wen Chi first entered the East Palace, eight out of nine of those courtyards were empty, but after that, many people came to the East Palace one after another and now, those courtyards are already occupied.
If Ping An’s “the walls have ears” refers to those neighbors, Wen Chi would not have asked these words.

Obviously, Ping An was guarding against Ruo Tao, who was only separated from them by a wall.

But what’s wrong with Ruo Tao?

Wen Chi thought about it for a long time but couldn’t come up with a reason.

Ruo Tao has a baby face and big eyes.
Even without rouge, her cheeks always remain flushed.

He has to admit that Ruo Tao is very beautiful.
If placed in modern times, maybe she can be an internet celebrity anchor or a nerd goddess or something…… cough cough, thinking too far.


Wen Chi hurriedly withdrew his thoughts that had already shifted to the Pacific Ocean and when he looked up, he saw that Ping An was still frowning and conflicted.
He said sternly, “It’s okay if you can’t say it.
I won’t force you.”

Ping An was a little moved.
He gritted his teeth and said in a low voice, “Young Master Wen, this servant dared to say, you are not alone.
Behind you stands Lord Wen and the entire Wen family and now that you are favored by His Royal Highness, it is inevitable that some people’s eyes will turn blue with envy.
Not to mention the hearts of the people.
No matter who it is, it is better to be cautious.

Wen Chi understood.

No wonder there are only four of them in the bamboo flute residence, but Ruo Tao and Ruo Fang play together and Ping An was a lone wolf, so it turned out that this factor was involved.

“I see.” Regardless of whether what Ping An said was true or not, Wen Chi said gratefully, “Thank you, Ping An.”

Ping An walked out and then turned back, kneeled on the ground and said: “The servant dares to say one more sentence.
There is a saying that accompanying the king is like accompanying a tiger.
His Royal Highness is the crown prince of this country and Young Master Wen serves His Royal Highness every day.
It is best to be cautious in words and deeds and be careful.
Over the years, there have been many people who entered the East Palace vertically but left the East Palace horizontally.

After speaking, Ping An withdrew quietly.

Wen Chi lay back on the bed, staring at the layered curtains while pondering the words of Ping An.
After pondering for a long time, he closed his eyes and fell asleep.
