Shi Jin were silent at the same time, and there was something more in their eyes when they looked at Wen Chi.

After a long time, the emperor barely suppressed the excitement and ecstasy in his heart and asked calmly, “Where did you learn these methods?”

Wen Chi took out his prepared speech: “Replying to Your Majesty, This Person loves to read miscellaneous books, these ideas are all mentioned in those miscellaneous books and I just analyze and organize them and then use them.”

The emperor laughed from ear to ear.

“Okay, very good.” After thinking about it, he couldn’t hold back the surging in his heart and said to the eunuch beside him, “Call Yong Lin, Pan Wen Kang, and Yin Chong to me, the sooner the better.

The eunuch responded in a hurry and quickly ran out of the imperial study with the whisk in his arms.

The emperor got up and paced back and forth a few times, then turned and pointed at Wen Chi: “You are really my savior, I want to reward you, what do you want? Just tell me.”

Wen Chi immediately knelt down: “Replying to Your Majesty, It’s This Person’s fortune to share the worries of the emperor and the people of the country.
This Person did not think about asking for any reward for his efforts.
I hope that Your Majesty can make a small atonement for the mistakes I once made.”

The emperor was stunned: “What is your crime?”

“This, This Person…” At this juncture, Wen Chi suddenly got stuck, he felt a panic for no reason, and subconsciously looked up at Shi Ye.

He saw that Shi Ye was still holding his chin with one hand and his posture hadn’t changed.

From the beginning to the end, he was like an outsider who had nothing to do with him.
His indifferent eyes fixed on Wen Chi and he seemed to be looking at another person through Wen Chi.

Suddenly, Wen Chi remembered the enemy Shi Ye had mentioned, the enemy who looked exactly like him more than ten years ago.

He thought that Shi Ye might be looking at that enemy through him.

“Speak.” The emperor’s voice pulled back Wen Chi’s thoughts, “Maybe I can be of help.”

Wen Chi pressed his forehead to the floor and spoke bravely, “This Person is guilty, This Person is not Wen Liang, the first son of the Wen family.
This Person  is called Wen Chi, a concubine born son of the Wen family.
I took the place of my brother Wen Liang and married into the East Palace, I deserve to die!”

Hearing this, Concubine Rong and Shi Jin were both shocked and turned their heads to look at each other. 

The emperor’s eyes were also gloomy: “What did you say?”

Wen Chi was lying on the ground and dared not stand up: “This Person deserves death!”

At this moment, he no longer dared to look up to see Shi Ye’s expression, he could not even imagine what expression Shi Ye would use to look at him.




The author has something to say: 

The content related to the locust plague comes from the Weibo of “British Newspaper Sister”, which is quite interesting.

T/N – Do you think Shi Ye has known that Wen Chi was not Wen Liang all along??

1Wen Chi uses the word 小人 [xiǎo rén], which is a from of address for a person with a low position, since he is a male concubine so he doesn’t have a status
