Chapter 99.2

Although Shi Ye didn’t speak, his silence was enough to show his mood at this moment.

Before Ruo Fang could say anything else, Shi Ye flew away like a butterfly.
In the blink of an eye, he disappeared from Wen Chi and Ruo Fang’s sight.

Ruo Fang was stunned and turned to look at Wen Chi: “Young Master, His Highness, what’s going on?”

Wen Chi picked up a piece of pastry from the tray and stuffed it into his mouth.
After swallowing, he said, “He was pissed off at us.”

Ruo Fang: “Huh?”

Wen Chi shook his head, turned around and walked towards the house.


In the following days, Wen Chi still stayed in Bamboo Flute Residence obediently.

Although he didn’t step out of the gate of Bamboo Flute Residence, he heard some news from the eunuchs who served him – many people had been dismissed from the Eastern Palace, and only five ladies and young masters combined remained, including Wen Chi, this nail house1 (钉子户/釘子戶[Pinyin] dīng zi hù [English meaning] householder who refuses to vacate his home despite pressure from property developers. ).

Wen Chi, as a nail house, was prepared to be questioned by Eunuch Zhu at his door.


Unexpectedly, after several days, Wen Chi did not see Eunuch Zhu instead there was news that Concubine Rong was going to the mountain resort to relax.

Originally, this matter had nothing to do with Wen Chi, but when he received the invitation letter from the eunuch arranged by Concubine Rong, the matter became related to him.

Since the death of Empress Hua, the harem has been without an owner and Concubine Rong, who has the highest status and is the most favored by the emperor, has assumed the responsibility of the empress.

When it snows at the end of each year, Concubine Rong will organize the female family members inside and outside the palace to go to the mountain villa to enjoy and relax.

It’s just that the emperor has been seriously ill in the past two years and the circumstances were special so Concubine Rong has not organized such an event for a long time.
Perhaps this year she saw that people’s hearts were not stable, so she wanted to take this opportunity to stabilize everyone’s emotions.

Wen Chi asked the little eunuch to inquire about it, only to learn that the remaining five concubines in the Eastern Palace had all received Concubine Rong’s invitation.

In a blink of an eye, it was the day of departure.

Wen Chi didn’t really want to go to the villa.
To be precise, he didn’t really want to go to the villa with those people, so he planned to pretend to be sick and muddle through.
But, Concubine Rong ended up sending two young eunuchs over without even a word.


Under the kind invitation of the two young eunuchs, Wen Chi, who hadn’t had time to pretend to be sick, couldn’t find any reason not to go, so he asked Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao to clean up briefly and then went out.

The horse-drawn carriage team going to the villa was vast, forming a magnificent long queue on the busy street.

Concubine Rong arranged everyone’s position in an orderly manner.

As a crown prince’s concubine, Wen Chi was expected to ride with the other concubines.

So when Wen Chi climbed into the carriage, the first thing he saw was Yue Gui sitting listlessly in the corner.

Yue Gui has lost a lot of weight, and is no longer as vigorous as he once was, and he looked preoccupied.

Wen Chi almost didn’t recognize Yue Gui because he hadn’t seen him for a long time.
He quietly looked at the familiar face several times before he remembered his name.

But what surprised Wen Chi was that Yue Gui was actually one of the five people who stayed.
It wasn’t that he thought that Yue Gui should leave, but that he had heard that Yue Gui was punished to the extent that he was only hanging on his last breath and had not expected to last until now.

Apparently Yue Gui also recognized Wen Chi.
After seeing Wen Chi, he who was originally listless suddenly became tense, his eyes were full of undisguised vigilance and defense and he even stared at Wen Chi nervously.

Wen Chi had no choice but to close his eyes and take a nap.


The villa is located on the mountainside, the more you go up the mountain the thicker the snow on the road and the more bumpy the carriage.

Yue Gui, who was sitting across from him, had turned pale and lay in front of the carriage window several times to retch.
When he turned around, he saw Wen Chi with his eyes closed, as if he was in a deep sleep.

Yue Gui said quietly: “You are really amazing.”

Wen Chi wasn’t asleep and after hearing Yue Gui’s voice, he thought that Yue Gui was talking about him saying that because he didn’t get motion sickness, so he said, “It’s okay.”

Yue Gui said: “You are really not modest.”

Wen Chi: “…” What’s so modest about this?

He had just finished thinking this way, when Yue Gui said: “I used to naively think that after you left for two or three years, His Highness the Crown Prince would gradually forget your existence but I didn’t expect you to still have a place in the East Palace to this day.

“…” Wen Chi was silent for a moment, with a complicated expression, “There is something you don’t know.”

“What is it?”

“The crown prince also gave me a divorce letter.”


“But I was reluctant to leave.”


Wen Chi chuckled: “The crown prince cannot do anything to me.”

“…” Yue Gui’s face twisted in anger, “You, how can you do this! You’re being a scoundrel!”


Wen Chi smiled and said, “How can I ride with you in the same carriage if not like this? Fate is truly wonderful.”

After speaking, he added fuel to the fire and winked at Yue Gui.

Yue Gui almost vomited a mouthful of old blood.

By the time the mighty team arrived at the villa, the sky outside had already darkened.

The little eunuch in the palace stood outside the carriage with a lantern and asked Wen Chi and Yue Gui to get off the carriage.

Wen Chi followed Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao out of the carriage, and his feet crunching on the soft snow.

It was still snowing when they set off, but the snow had long since stopped.

However, the snow on the ground was very thick and as far as the eye could see, the land was covered in silver, the dark white snow stretching onwards until it was hidden in the hazy night.

Wen Chi was not interested, and was waiting for Consort Rong’s arrangements, while Yue Gui, who was in the same carriage, was so excited that she forgot to be wary of Wen Chi and was as happy as a little bird.

Only Yue Gui was happy.
After a while, he heard a clear voice from behind: “Young Master Wen!”

Yue Gui paused, and the smile on her face disappeared at a speed visible to the naked eye.

Wen Chi turned his head following the sound and saw a handsome young man coming around from a carriage behind them.
He walked towards them, smiling as he walked: “So you are here, I really had a hard time finding you.

Wen Chi froze for a moment before remembering that this man, isn’t this Lin Yu?
