Chapter 21.1

Time seems to pass very slowly.

Wen Chi was already soaked in cold sweat and even his hands placed on the ground were shaking slightly.

Without the emperor’s command, he simply did not dare to get up.

But for some reason, compared to the emperor, he was even more afraid of Shi Ye’s reaction who was silent on the side.
Just the thought that Shi Ye might peel off his skin in a fit of rage after feeling cheated, he felt a pang of numbness in his scalp.

wu wu wu1, so scary…….

For a long time, neither the emperor nor Concubine Rong responded.

On the other hand, Wen Chi quickly broke free from his fear and he gradually became calm, thinking that if he died, it was no big deal.
Anyway, he had lived quite a long time since he came to this world.

After thinking this way, Wen Chi slowly exhaled a breath and kneeled in a relaxed manner.

In fact, what Wen Chi didn’t know was that the Emperor and Concubine Rong had already gotten up and went to the inner room, probably because they were so shocked that they needed a place to be quiet – so the only people sitting in front of Wen Chi were the fourth prince, Shi Jin and Crown Prince Shi Ye.

After all, Shi Jin had little to do with this matter.
After the shocking revelation, he stared at the window in a daze, lost in thought. 

Shi Ye’s eyes never took his eyes away from Wen Chi.
He held his cheeks boredly, and lowered his eyes to see Wen Chi turned from a hard stone into a pool of soft soil, thinking that no one noticed.

Shi Ye pressed his fist to his lips: “Ahem–“

Wen Chi tensed up immediately.

However, not long after, he slowly and silently relaxed again.

Shi Ye: “Ahem, Ahem—”

Wen Chi tenses up again.

Shi Ye didn’t move the hand on his lips just to cover up an imperceptible smile on the corner of his mouth.

When Shi Jin came back to his senses, he saw his eccentric and intimidating elder brother staring intently at Wen Chi, who was kneeling on the ground.
The half-intact face no longer had the look of indifference as before, instead had something else ……

It was the first time Shi Jin saw such a side from his big brother, he could not help but be stunned.

When Shi Ye sensed his gaze, he abruptly put away the smile on his face and glanced over with a cold gaze.

When Shi Jin coldly met the pair of black eyes, he suddenly had a feeling that his whole person was seen through by the other party.
When he hurriedly looked away, he realized that he was already in a cold sweat.

Sure enough ……

His big brother is still the same big brother and has not changed at all.

Just then, the Emperor and Concubine Rong, who had calmed down, came out of the inner room.

The emperor’s expression was serious, his eyebrows were twisted into 川 characters and there was a bit of regret and hated iron for not making steel2 in his eyes when he looked at Wen Chi.

The crown prince represented the entire royal family and the Wen family’s behavior of stealing the beam and changing the pillar and marrying the concubine born son instead of the legitimate son into the East Palace undoubtedly means that they deceived the crown prince, that is, they deceived the entire royal family and deceived him, the emperor, that was the crime of deceiving the Emperor!

If the Wen family just deceived him as the Emperor, it would be fine.
He could still take it lightly for the sake of Wen Chi’s contribution not long ago but unfortunately this matter involved the crown prince…

The emperor thought about it but in the end did not dare to cross the crown prince to take the initiative.

“Well, you can even deceive the Emperor, what else is there that you dare not do? Are you planning to plot a rebellion tomorrow?” After that, the Emperor called a eunuch in a deep voice, “Summon Wen Changqing, I want to show him his good son and I want to know where the hell he came from and dare to deceive me and my crown prince!”

“Yes.” The eunuch bowed and replied.

But before the eunuch could run out, Shi Ye said in a sullen voice, “Hold on.”

Hearing this, the Emperor, Concubine Rong and Shi Jin looked at Shi Ye in surprise.

Wen Chi, who had been numb with fear, held his breath and quietly waited for his death. 

Who knew the next moment, he only heard Shi Ye say: “You get up first.”

Wen Ji knew he couldn’t figure out Shi Ye’s thoughts, so he didn’t.
He obediently got up from the ground and stood with head bowed and obedient eyes.

Shi Ye chuckled: “With this cowardly nature of yours, when you see Bengong, you can’t wait to find a crack to get in, even if you had ten times the courage, you don’t dare to tell a lie, say, who instructed you to do so?”

Wen Chi: “…”

He was stunned—what did the crown prince mean by that? What does the crown prince want to express? Was the crown prince so quick to start giving punishment?

Shi Ye didn’t wait for Wen Chi’s answer but he wasn’t annoyed: “Did Wen Changqing instructed you?”

Wen Chi: “…”

“That’s it, Bengong thinks that Wen Changqing is not a good thing.
He has a belly full of flowers and intestines3.
Hearing that Bengong is trapped in the East Palace without leaving, he is naturally reluctant to send his precious son but speaking of ……” Shi Ye tone gradually turned cold, “How can his wife not know the stupid things Wen Changqing did? How can his precious son not know? Bengong sees that none of their Wen family can walk away from this matter.”

Wen Chi: “…”
