Chapter 98.2

The little eunuch who was walking in front quickly noticed something strange, turned around, bowed and asked cautiously, “Young Master Wen, what else do you need?”

Wen Chi didn’t seem to hear the little eunuch’s voice and continued to stand there.

Ruo Fang slowly stopped crying, turned her head and looked at Ruo Tao and quickly wiped away the tears on her face and walked forward: “Young Master, what’s wrong with you?”

As soon as the words left her mouth, she saw Wen Chi turn around sharply, walk back a few steps in a panic, and then frantically walk towards the gate again only to stop abruptly in front of the gate again.

He tried several times, but the result was the same.

Wen Chi was getting more and more agitated and Ruo Fang was getting more and more puzzled, so she boldly asked again, “Young Master, what’s wrong with you?”

Wen Chi’s empty eyes fell on Ruo Fang, his thin lips opened and closed a few times before he said in despair, “It’s over, Ruo Fang, I can’t leave.”


In the study.

Several officials stood tremblingly in front of the desk.
They shrank like quails and lowered their heads.
They all looked pale and the fear in their eyes almost flowed into the air.


Eunuch Zhu hugged whisk and stood quietly behind the crown prince.
He quietly raised his eyes to look at him, only to see him holding his chin expressionlessly as usual, his gaze seemingly falling on the letters spread out on the desk, but his thoughts had drifted off somewhere.

Eunuch Zhu has been with the crown prince for many years, so he naturally understands the crown prince’s temperament, so he was probably thinking about the one from the Bamboo Flute Residence……

Eunuch Zhu doesn’t know what happened to the crown prince two years ago, but his temper is getting worse day by day, even more volatile than three years ago, making everyone in the East Palace feel insecure, for fear that they will accidentally fall into the receiving end of the crown prince’s wrath.

Apparently, the behavior of the officials in front of the desk made the crown prince unhappy.

Eunuch Zhu didn’t show it on the surface, but he was already mourning for those officials in his heart.

After thinking about it for a moment, the crown prince came back to his senses, and his voice was like a cold spring: “Get out.”

After hearing this, several officials breathed a sigh of relief, and rushed out.

Eunuch Zhu also lowered his eyes and remained motionless. 


Soon after, the crown prince suddenly said: “Zhu Xian.”

Eunuch Zhu hurriedly walked over with his waist bowed: “The servant is here.”

The crown prince asked, “Has he left?”

Eunuch Zhu replied cautiously: “This servant arranged for someone to send Young Master Wen out of the palace this morning.
The person hasn’t come back yet, so he should still be on his way to send Young Master Wen out of the palace.”

The crown prince was silent for a long time and then he said to himself: “Forget it.”

After a pause, he said to Eunuch Zhu, “You all go out and don’t bother me without my permission.”


Eunuch Zhu knew that the crown prince was in a bad mood, so he hurriedly led the others who were serving in the study away.

Shi Ye was the only one left in the huge study room and it was so quiet that it was as if he could hear the sound of the breeze, so empty that it was somewhat lonely.

Shi Ye remained in the same position, like a rock, not moving at all.


He had a lot of things to do, letters and memorials filled the entire desk, since the emperor fell ill, almost half of the affairs fell on him.

But right now, he didn’t have the heart to deal with those things.

Shi Ye stayed in the study all day until the sun set and the sky grew dark, and the shattered stars gradually took over the ink-black night sky.
Eunuch Zhu personally brought the evening meal from the kitchen and walked gingerly behind the archway in the study.

“Your Royal Highness, it’s getting dark outside, you should eat something to pad your stomach.” Eunuch Zhu said softly.

It’s a pity that his words were like the stones thrown into the lake, without causing any waves.

Eunuch Zhu boldly said again: “Your Royal Highness, the servant has brought over the meal.
Will Your Royal Highness eat in the study?”

Shi Ye still didn’t respond.

Eunuch Zhu hesitated for a while, thinking that the crown prince’s silence was just acquiescing, so he walked in with the dinner, only to see that there was no one in front of the desk.

Eunuch Zhu put the dinner on the table and searched for the crown prince for a long time before finding the study window wide open, so the crown prince had probably flown out through it again.

This is really ……

Eunuch Zhu stood in front of the window, shook his head and sighed.

The crown prince is really getting more and more unruly.
There are many taboos in the palace and many places where you should not go, but the crown prince treats the palace like a marketplace and comes and goes as he pleases.

It’s a good thing he’s so skilled in martial arts.
If anyone else found out, even if he is the Crown Prince, he wouldn’t have been able to get away with it.


After countless attempts to experiment, Wen Ji finally concluded that – he could not leave the Bamboo Flute Residence.


Strictly speaking, it should be that as long as he has the idea of ​​leaving the Eastern Palace, it was as if his feet had taken root in the ground, and no matter how hard he tried, he could not move a single inch, but if he had the idea of just going for a walk, he could move freely again.

This reminded Wen Chi of the power that controlled him twice before.

He had always thought that the power was a side effect when Wen Liang used the system and since the stone that has the system was later taken away by General Lin, so naturally that power should have disappeared as well.

But now…

That power is still there!

Wen Chi was at a loss and then fell into a daze.

After lying in bed for a day, he finally managed to clear his head a little amidst the confusion.
He could feel that the sole purpose of that power was to stop him from separating from Shi Ye.

He originally thought that that power came from the plot line of the original novel, as long as the characters in the novel deviate from the main line or are seriously OOC1(Out of Character), the world will spontaneously generate an irresistible force to correct everything.

But after thinking about it carefully, it doesn’t feel right.

If this world really has that kind of power, then as early as the entanglement at the Peach Blossom Banquet, it should have stepped in and returned the stone to Wen Liang, instead of it first being obtained by Li Hao and then falling into General Lin’s hands – from here on, the plot line of the original novel was like a wild horse that had gone off the rails and could never be pulled back.

Excluding this possibility, there is only one possibility left – that is, the Wen Liang’s system is playing tricks behind the scenes.

Wen Chi remembered that Wen Liang’s wish in the original novel was not to marry Shi Ye, so the system directly replaced Wen Liang with the original owner.
If Wen Liang’s wish was to continue to be fulfilled, then it made sense that he could not leave Shi Ye.

In the end, Wen Chi fell into a deep sense of hopelessness.

He is not confident enough to think that he has the ability to defeat the system.
But if there is a way he could snatch the stone from General Lin, then he may be able to untie this invisible knot.

However, Wen Chi changed his mind and thought of General Lin’s largely built body and his height of nearly two meters… He faltered.

Never mind.

Just staying in this place eating and drinking all he wants seems to be quite good…

So Wen Chi convinced himself, but after dinner, his disobedient legs drove him to the courtyard.

He looked up at the high wall surrounding the courtyard and suddenly an idea came to his mind.
