Chapter 39.1

Just as Wen Chi finished speaking, Shi Ye stopped.

The bathroom suddenly became silent.

Wen Chi felt embarrassed and wanted to get up from the bucket quickly but then thought of his clothes still hanging on the rack not far away and it would be even more embarrassing to just stand up like this…

After hesitating for a moment, he had no choice but to lean back to the edge of the barrel.

Afterwards, Shi Ye suddenly withdrew his hand and stood up expressionlessly.

Wen Chi thought that Shi Ye was about to leave and was suddenly overjoyed.

But before he could rejoice, he watched Shi Ye taking off his outermost robe, followed by the inner garment… one layer after another and in the blink of an eye, Shi Ye’s upper body was completely stripped off. 

Wen Chi froze, looking up at Shi Ye with a horrified expression.

However, Shi Ye had no intention of taking off his pants.
After taking off his shoes and socks, he stepped into the barrel.

This wooden barrel was big enough to hold four adult men.
It stands to reason that it should be more than enough to hold another Shi Ye but when Shi Ye sat down, Wen Chi felt in an instant that the entire barrel was crowded.

The hot water in the barrel rose sharply and overflowed.

And the hot water in the bucket was no longer as hot as before but there was still white mist lingering between the two of them and the mist could not cover Wen Chi’s gradually warming face.

Wen Chi was startled and frightened and on top of that he was shy because this was the first time he was bathing with someone.

He could clearly feel his cheeks getting hotter and hotter, as if they could burn at any moment.

“You…what are you doing?” Wen Chi stuttered1Note- Wen Chi used, “you” (你 (Ni)) instead of the usual Your highness and whatnot or any other respectful tones.

“Taking a bath.” Although Shi Ye said so, he didn’t look like he was taking a bath.
He raised his eyes and his sharp outline was still full of aggressiveness in the hazy mist.
His smile didn’t seem to be reassuring, “This is also Bengong’s bath water.
Bengong wiped his face with his own bath water.
Do you have any opinion?”

Wen Chi shook his head frantically.

How dare he have an opinion? Not to mention washing his face with bath water, even if Shi Ye drank all the water in the bucket, he didn’t dare to have any more thoughts.

The only thing he wanted was to leave quickly.
He had been frightened enough for today, he didn’t want to take a bath with this dog prince as well.

With this in mind, Wen Chi was about to stand up.

However, Shi Ye seemed to have sensed his intentions and before he could make a move, he suddenly leaned over, put one hand on his shoulder and the other on the side of the barrel behind him, almost wrapping Wen Chi in his arms.

Shi Ye’s strength was neither too strong nor too small but it made him unable to move.

For a moment, all Wen Chi could smell was the faint fragrance of sandalwood from Shi Ye’s body.

Wen Chi’s eyes were still a little red and he stared blankly at Shi Ye with an unconcealable panic on his face.

Shi Ye seemed a little displeased.
He was slightly taller than Wen Chi and looked down at Wen Chi condescendingly: “Did I allow you leave?”

Wen Chi lowered his eyes and Shi Ye’s well-defined abdominal muscles came into his view and looking down from the corner of his vision, he could also see the firm muscles hidden underneath the soaked pants.

Those lines…

It’s really obvious.

Wen Chi took one more look and as if his eyes were scalded, he quickly looked away and reflexively looked up, only to meet Shi Ye’s deep eyes.

Wen Chi was very embarrassed, the embarrassment emanating from his heart was like this bucket of hot water, surrounding him tightly inside and out, even overshadowing his fear of Shi Ye.

“But I don’t want to wash anymore.” Wen Chi wished he could shrink himself into a ball of dumplings.
In his desperation, he even forgot to use the honorific, “I’m all done washing, you can wash yourself.”

As he said that, Wen Chi wanted to stand up again but Shi Ye easily pushed him back.

“I haven’t finished washing.” Shi Ye’s hands on Wen Chi’s shoulders gradually tightened and his voice became a little hoarse, as if trying to suppress something, “You are not allowed to leave until I finish washing.

Wen Chi became anxious and blurted out words of accusation: “But you don’t look like you are taking a bath.
How can anyone take a bath without taking off their pants? You are not taking an actual bath at all!”

The blush on Wen Chi’s face had already spread to the base of his ears and neck.
He lifted his chin, trying not to let his peripheral vision notice the lower half of Shi Ye.

But when he raised his head, he could see Shi Ye’s gaze, which was so straightforward and seemed to be interspersed with many things that he couldn’t and didn’t want to understand, which made him even more alarmed and confused.

What he said stunned Shi Ye for a moment and as if he suddenly understood something he laughed soflty and asked: “So you think Bengong is not clean.”

Wen Chi: “…”

He hurriedly shook his head.
He didn’t and won’t  want to talk nonsense…

It’s a pity that Shi Ye directly ignored Wen Chi’s reaction, took away the hand that was on Wen Chi’s shoulder and made a gesture to get up: “Then Bengong will do as you wish…”

Before his words fell, Wen Chi stood up from the water, jumped out of the bucket and ran away in a panic, not forgetting to take away the clean clothes hanging on the rack.

Wen Chi ran fast and was gone in a short while.

Shi Ye seemed to have expected Wen Chi’s reaction.
He had no intention of taking off his pants.
After looking at the direction Wen Chi just left, he sat back in the bucket again.

When the water in the bucket gradually cooled down, he said coldly, “Ruo Tao.”

A female voice outside the window responded: “Yes.”

Shi Ye said, “Bring Bengong a set of clean clothes.”


Wen Chi who was afraid that he would be caught up by Shi Ye, ran like he was in a 100-meter race.
While running and dressing he ran to the courtyard when he finally looked back while panting.

Shi Ye did not catch up.

Wen Chi breathed a sigh of relief and walked towards the house with somewhat weak legs.

Ruo Fang was the only one standing there in the room, as if she had been greatly frightened, she looked at the ground with a dull expression and didn’t even hear Wen Chi’s approaching footsteps.

Wen Chi who was also terrified, sat down on a chair, poured himself a cup of hot tea and drank it all in one gulp.

After feeling the warm tea slide down his throat, Wen Chi felt that his cold hands and feet finally had some warmth.

The master and servant stood and sat like this, wandering for nearly half a stick of incense.
