Chapter 19.2

Shi Ye seemed to be shocked by his cheekiness, after a moment of silence, he waved his hand and said : “Go to Zhu Xian to get some clothes.”

Wen Chi knew that Shi Ye meant to let him go.
He was relieved, a strong sense of joy instantly surged in his heart at the same time but he never dared to show it.
He pursed his lips, bowed and whispered “yes”.

But before he went out, Shi Ye called out to him again: “Bengong doesn’t like mangoes.”

Wen Chi quickly understood what Shi Ye meant and couldn’t help but feel fortunate.
Fortunately, his ability to make cakes saved him and he asked, “Which fruit does Your Highness want? I can place them all on the cake.”

Shi Ye frowned: “Bengong has already made it so clear but you still don’t understand?”

Wen Chi instantly broke into a cold sweat.

Fortunately, Shi Ye didn’t mean to continue to make things difficult for him and only said: “Bengong doesn’t like any fruits.”

Wen Chi quickly replied yes, and hurriedly slipped out of the study.

Outside the study, Eunuch Zhu and others had been waiting for a long time and when they saw that Wen Chi was completely intact… Oh no, the tattered-clothes  Wen Chi came out, they almost failed to hide the surprise in their eyes, even the always calm Eunuch Zhu also could not help but look at Wen Chi a few more times.

After listening to Wen Chi repeat the crown prince’s words, Eunuch Zhu hurriedly said, “Young Master Wen, please come this way.”

He doesn’t know if it was Wen Chi’s delusion but Eunuch Zhu’s attitude towards him seemed to be a little more flattering.

When passing in front of several eunuchs, Wen Chi accidentally caught a glimpse of a stretcher that seemed to be used to carry people.
He remembered that he had not seen this thing when he came.

So Wen Chi asked, “Eunuch Zhu, what is that stretcher for?”

Eunuch Zhu turned around and replied with a smile, “To be honest, if Young Master Wen goes in vertically and comes out horizontally, then that stretcher will be used to carry Young Master Wen to the morgue.”

Wen Chi: “…”

Eunuch Zhu finally couldn’t hold back and sighed: “Speaking of which, Young Master Wen is the first person who has stayed by His Royal Highness’s side for such a long time.
Young Master Wen is very special to His Highness.”

Wen Chi thought to himself, after all, he looks like the enemy that Shi Ye has been dreaming about for more than ten years, can’t he be special?

Eunuch Zhu led Wen Chi to change his clothes and when Wen Chi returned to Bamboo Flute Residence, he, Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao got busy together.

Wen Chi was really afraid that Shi Ye, that mad man, would go crazy again, so he worked extra hard to make an eight-inch cake with a pile of heavy cream on top and after carefully shaping the shape, he asked Ping An to send it to Eunuch Zhu.

Early the next morning, Wen Chi was still having breakfast in the residence when he saw Ruo Fang running in in a panic.

“Young Master Wen!” Ruo Fang said excitedly, “Eunuch Zhu is here!”

Wen Chi was so frightened that he almost spat out the porridge in his mouth.
Fortunately, he restrained himself in time and quickly put down the dishes, wiped his hands with a handkerchief and walked ahead of Ruo Fang to welcome him.

In the courtyard, Eunuch Zhu changed his expressionless face and smiled.
After seeing Wen Chi’s figure, he took the initiative to walk up to him.

“Young Master Wen, I have been specially sent these rewards by the order of His Highness the Crown Prince.” Eunuch Zhu smiled profoundly, “I would like to congratulate you first.”

Wen Chi glanced at the things held by the eunuchs and said, “Rewards?”

“This is the reward given by His Highness the Crown Prince for Young Master Wen for serving His Highness well.” Eunuch Zhu said, “Young Master Wen, why don’t you quickly receive the reward?”

Wen Chi still didn’t understand what was going on but he also knew that the matter could not be delayed, so he asked Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao to take turns to take the things in the hands of the eunuchs and put them into the room.
When Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao took turns to take the things, Eunuch Zhu would announce the name of the items.

Although Wen Chi is not very knowledgeable about these things, he can tell from the appearance and names of those objects – they are all valuable things.
Compared with the things that Madam Xu sent through gritted teeth to those sent by Shi Ye is dwarfed in comparison,

After Eunuch Zhu and his party left the Bamboo Flute Residence in a mighty manner, Wen Chi was worried about the large and small objects placed on the table.

He guessed that these things were the hush money given by Shi Ye – after all, what he saw with his own eyes was that Shi Ye was not disabled.

But this kind of silencing method is not at all like Shi Ye’s style.
According to Shi Ye’s temper, he should have directly sent him to meet the king of hell.

Wen Chi also recalled that when Shi Ye and several officials discussed how to deal with the Fourth Prince, he did not shy away from him at all.

Could it be that…

In Shi Ye’s eyes, is he already a dead person who can’t speak?

Wen Chi was worried for a few days, so worried that he could not eat his meals, but Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao were very happy and even more motivated to make cakes.

Wen Chi sat on the chair with a sad face, watching Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao pasting the icing and said sincerely: “It’s good to be a little girl who doesn’t know the world.”

Ruo Fang heard this and said innocently: ” Young Master Wen doesn’t have to envy the slaves, strictly speaking, Young Master Wen is considered half a girl.”

Wen Chi’s face was full of black lines: “Are you saying that I am neither a man nor a woman?”

Ruo Fang quickly shook her head and explained earnestly: “Young Master Wen will have children, doesn’t that mean you are half a girl?”

Wen Chi: “……”

He almost forgot, he really is not male and female physique in this world.

Wen Chi wasn’t finished worrying here but Lord Yin over there had already taken action.
It didn’t take long for Wen Chi to receive a message from the eunuch next to the emperor, saying that the emperor wanted to meet Wen Chi.
