Translator – Xiao He Lian

Chapter 17.2

Hearing this, Wen Changqing and Madam Xu looked at Xiao Shuanzi eagerly.

Although Wen Changqing served as the third-rank Assistant minister of the Ministry of Rites in the imperial court, he was suppressed by Lord Yin the Minister of Rites and there are several colleagues who are also servants of the Ministry of rites to check and balance.
Therefore his performance is really not conspicuous.
To say that his greatest achievement in recent years, it should be that his son is actually favored by His Royal Highness.

His Royal Highness is the Crown Prince, and his mother is Empress Hua who passed away many years ago.
The crown prince not only has the backing of the elusive Hua family, even the emperor is afraid of him, if their Wen family gets the favor of his Highness the crown prince, it is really easy to turn one’s hand1metaphor that things are very simple and very easy to complete. in the imperial court in the future.

The more Wen Changqing thought about it, the more beautiful it became and he even created a beautiful blueprint for himself.
He quietly exchanged glances at Madam Xu and both saw the hope in each other’s eyes.

Who knew they had just finished thinking about it when they heard Xiao Shuanzi pinched his throat and said coldly, “Is the East Palace a place where any cat or dog can go in? If Young Master Wen misses home, he can come back.”

Wen Changqing: “… …”

Madam Xu: “…”

Only Wen Chi expected Xiao Shuanzi to say this and winked at Wen Changqing and Madam Xu: “This son did his best.” 

When Madam Xu stared at Wen Chi’s gloating expression, she was so angry that she almost spit out a mouthful of blood.
She woke up early today and was busy doing things for Wen Chi.
She even gritted her teeth and sent out a few dowries prepared for Wen Liang, isn’t this a way to save face in front of the several eunuchs?

In the end these several eunuchs mocked them, but even Wen Chi, the white-eyed wolf2a person who is not grateful, did not speak for them.

If she had known this, she would have thrown this white-eyed wolf outside to feed the dogs!

The more Madam Xu thought about it, the more angry she became and Wen Changqing’s expression didn’t look any better.
The gloom under his eyes almost gushed out with his gaze, but unfortunately, in front of the eunuchs, they could only swallow all the bitterness and resentment in their stomachs.

Wen Chi’s heart was full of joy, anyway, this man and woman were not kind to him.

Before leaving, Wen Liang suddenly appeared and said that he had something to say to Wen Chi alone.

Wen Chi hesitated for a moment and then led Wen Liang into the carriage – surrounded by people, only the carriage is the quietest.

As soon as he got into the carriage, Wenliang’s eyes turned red.
Fortunately, he held back his tears and didn’t cry again in front of Wen Chi.
He hesitated but then found the courage to say, “Brother, can I ask you something?”

Wen Chi sat down on the padded bench with ease and looked up at Wen Liang, who was a little helpless but couldn’t hide his guilty conscience: “What’s the matter?”

Wen Liang took a deep breath: “Can you not go to the Peach Blossom Banquet?”

Wen Chi was not surprised after hearing this, since Wen Liang has a system to help him predict the future, it is naturally impossible to miss such a good opportunity to choose a mate.

But looking at the face of Wen Liang, he got up to tease again, intentionally pretending to think and said with difficulty: “The eldest princess has invited you to go, if you don’t go, I’m afraid it will be difficult to explain to the eldest princess.”

“It won’t be.” Wen Liang shook his head like a rattle, his face and eyes were full of pleading, “I have my own way to deal with the Princess’ side, younger brother, elder brother knows elder brother’s request is very selfish, but brother really has no choice.”

Wen Chi thought to himself that you had said that you had no choice before as well.

“Just think of it as brother begging you, don’t go to the Peach Blossom Banquet, okay?” Said Wen Liang’s tears scrambled out as he humbly pleaded, “If you agree to my request, I will make up for it in other ways in the future.”

Wen Chi poked his ears out of boredom, thinking that this sentence is still familiar, and Wen Liang has already said it a second time, changing the soup without changing the medicine3“Change the soup without changing the medicine”, a Chinese saying, which means that although the name and shape of the metaphor have changed, the actual content is still the same.

Seeing that Wen Chi was unmoved, Wen Liang grabbed his hand with a sob: “Younger Brother…”
