is neck guiltily: “I really didn’t hear what you said just now…”

Lin Yu almost vomited a mouthful of blood and looked at Wen Chi like an old mother looking at her own unworthy son, his eyes full of hatred.

Wen Chi looked back at Lin Yu innocently.

The two looked at each other for a while and in the end Lin Yu was the first to lose.
He sighed and turned his head to vent all his anger on Yue Gui, who was gloating and giggling.

In a short while, Yue Gui was crying again.

Wen Chi watched the two for a long time, then turned his head away.

Concubine Rong’s birthday banquet was held very simply, perhaps because of the special circumstances, she did not invite as many guests as in previous years.
But the venue was decorated gorgeously, even the meals served were rare delicacies.
Now since everything is simplified, the number of guests has been greatly reduced, and some people didn’t even come.

For example—His Royal Highness the crown prince.

Lin Yu, Yue Gui and the others had been looking forward to it like the Amah Rock1(The Amah Rock is a mountain in the southwest of Xingcheng, Liaoning Province.
There is a legend about a woman who turned into a rock while waiting for her husband who went to perform his service for the country but never came back.
The rock looked like a woman.) for a whole day, but they didn’t see His Royal Highness.
And when the banquet was over, they were so disappointed that it was as if the sky had collapsed.

On the way back to the courtyard, Lin Yu was listless, his face was full of dejection and he was still muttering: “It’s over, it’s over, I just missed this rare opportunity.”


Wen Chi didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry when he heard this.
So he comforted him: “It’s all about human effort, as long as you have the heart, there will be opportunities.”

Lin Yu cast a sorrowful glance at Wen Chi: “Why do I feel that this seems strange coming from your mouth?”

Wen Chi tilted his head to look at him:  “What’s weird about it?”

Lin Yu thought to himself, “Everything is weird!

The second son of the Wen family was too indomitable, wasn’t he the one who married into the Eastern Palace under his brother’s name? Why does he look like a different person now?

Lin Yu originally wanted to tap into Wen Chi’s inner thoughts but when he met Wen Chi’s innocent gaze, he couldn’t seem to say anything else.

Forget it.

It’s none of his business anyway.

Wen Chi waited for a long time, but did not get an answer from Lin Yu.
Since Lin Yu did not want to answer, he did not ask any more questions and returned to the courtyard.
The two of them went their separate ways and went to their respective houses.

After being a wooden man at the banquet all day, Wen Chi was so tired that he fell asleep soon after taking a bath.

Wen Chi slept soundly but was woken up by a humming sound in the middle of the night.

He opened his eyes in a daze and under the light of the candle beside the bed, he saw a small snow-white face blowing at him and sticking out his tongue to lick his face.

The sticky wet touch awakened Wen Chi instantly and he jumped up from the bed in fright: “A’Gu? Why are you here!”

Wen Chi didn’t know if A’Gu understood his words but he tilted his head and squatted innocently in front of Wen Chi’s bed.


So one person and one fox stared at each other with wide eyes.

In the end, Wen Chi gave in and surrendered.
Since A’Gu didn’t want to leave, he could only ask Ruo Tao to take him away.

Wen Chi propped up half of his body, got out of bed, put on his shoes and walked out.

Seeing Wen Chi’s movements, A’Gu whimpered, then caught up with him on his four little legs, soon overtook him and ran ahead of him.

Seeing this, Wen Chi thought that A’Gu had understood his meaning and planned to leave, so he stopped, preparing to watch A’Gu leave.

But when A’Gu turned his head and saw him stop, he also stopped.
Seeing that he hadn’t moved, he ran back, circled around his feet and bit his trouser leg with his mouth, as if trying to pull him in a certain direction.

At first Wen Chi was suspicious, but it didn’t take long for him to understand what A’Gu meant and he took a tentative step out.

Sure enough, A’Gu let go of his trouser legs, turned around and ran out.

Wen Chi followed A Gu.

One person and one fox came to the vicinity of the hot spring bath behind the house.
The hot spring had been used for some time but it was still steaming.

Before he got close, Wen Chi smelled a strong smell of blood.
His brows furrowed tighter and tighter as he quickened his pace and followed A’Gu to the edge of the bamboo forest.

Under the bright moonlight, he saw a man lying on the snow.
