Chapter 42.2

Today Wen Chi is wearing a crescent-white shirt with narrow sleeves and a light blue wide-brimmed brocade belt decorated with auspicious clouds around his waist1 – Something like this, with a wide belt on the waist.
He looked extremely tall and even in the past when those ordinary clothes couldn’t hide his handsomeness.
Now with these clothes that seemed to be tailor-made for him made him look like a handsome nobleman.

Wen Chi did not have any redundant expression on his face.
He looked at the people who came forward to greet him with a slightly apathetic look .
Only his clear almond eyes were slightly narrowed by the sun.

Wen Liang doesn’t know if it was his illusion but he feels that Wen Chi seems to have gained some weight.

Wen Liang has been disciplined by Madam Xu since he was a child and Madam Xu was extremely strict about maintaining his appearance and figure.
Even if he ate just  two extra bites of rice or gained two taels of fat, she would blame him in front of all the servants.

“Gaining Weight” for Wen Liang, are two very unpleasant words but now that these two words appear on Wen Chi, he does not feel incongruous but rather he feels that this look of Wen Chi is much better than his previous look.

It is also ……

After all, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince loved Wen Chi so much that he not only arranged for his personal Eunuch to accompany Wen Chi back to the mansion but he also brought him to the Peach Blossom Banquet.
Presumably, Wen Chi’s life in the palace is much more pleasant than when he was in the Wen mansion.

Wen Liang pursed his lips and took a deep breath, feeling suffocated in his heart.

He didn’t think that he envied Wen Chi.
He just thought that Wen Chi had caused the Wen Family to become what they are now and he is living well in the palace while things were difficult for the whole Wen family.

Wen Liang who was engrossed in his thoughts was pulled out of his trance by a pair of deep eyes.
The owner of those eyes was leaning lazily on the wheelchair, openly sizing him up.

Wen Liang was taken aback for a moment and only then did he realize that he had made eye contact with His Highness the Crown Prince who was sitting in a wheelchair.

It has to be said that the image of His Royal Highness is quite different from what he imagined.

He originally thought His Highness the Crown Prince was an ugly weirdo but he didn’t expect that after His Highness put on that half-faced mask, he looked no different from a normal person and this half of his face was more handsome than the Fourth Prince.

However, the fourth prince is gentle and elegant and his smile is like a spring breeze.

On the other hand, the Crown Prince was expressionless and he didn’t even bother to pay attention to the people who went up to greet him.
Although His Royal Highness looked at him without obvious emotions, he was able to sensitively capture the coldness in the eyes of His Highness. 

Wen Liang was terrified by the brief eye contact and quickly lowered his eyes to avoid the gaze of His Royal Highness.

After a while, he touched his palm stiffly and it was covered in cold sweat.


The Peach Blossom Banquet was very lively but unfortunately this excitement has nothing to do with Wen Chi.

Wen Chi just concentrated on helping Shi Ye push the wheelchair and at the same time tried to minimize his presence.
He doesn’t want to take the initiative to stand out and be cannon fodder on Wen Liang’s stage.

While thinking about it, Wen Chi quietly observed the scene and as expected, he found Wen Liang’s existence in a corner.

It seems that the changes in the Wen family did not stop the development of the plot.
In the end, Wen Liang still found the young master of the Li family.

Wen Chi withdrew his eyes calmly, pretending that he neither saw nor knew Wen Liang.

After these people had finished exchanging pleasantries, he pushed Shi Ye’s wheelchair into a tent surrounded by silk veils under the guidance of a maid.

The tent was furnished extremely delicately, not only were there green plants but there were also tables, chairs and benches, as well as tea and snacks that looked tempting.

Wen Chi pushed Shi Ye’s wheelchair to a table and then stood silently behind Shi Ye.

Shi Ye propped up his chin in boredom, and said without looking back, “Sit.”

Wen Chi naturally understood that Shi Ye was talking to him, so he didn’t refuse and obediently sat on the chair beside Shi Ye.

Shi Ye turned his head and glanced at Wen Chi, then at the snacks on the table: “Eat as much as you want.”

Wen Chi: “…”

How did Shi Ye know that he was looking at those snacks?

Wen Chi thought about it for a while and then refused: “Thank you, His Highness, for your kindness, but I’m not hungry yet.”

Seeing Wen Chi’s resolute attitude, Shi Ye seemed to have thought of something, chuckled lightly and there was a little imperceptible smile in his eyes.
He raised his eyebrows and said, “Afraid you’ll go from being full-term fat to awaiting delivery?”

“…” Wen Chi, who was stabbed in his sensitive point, immediately looked like a cat whose tail was stepped on and said, “You are too much!”

After finishing speaking, Wen Chi immediately realized his tone and his face turned pale.
He bit his lips tightly in fright and carefully looked at Shi Ye’s expression.

Fortunately, Shi Ye didn’t pay attention to what he said and looked out of the tent thoughtfully.

Seeing this, Wen Chi slowly relaxed his grip on his lower lip.

At the same time, the overwrought strings in his mind relaxed and Shi Ye said again: “That person is also here.”

Wen Chi was confused for a moment: “What did His Highness the Crown Prince say?”

Shi Ye glanced at him with a half-smile, “The one you looked at seven or eight times when you came.”

Wen Chi: “…”

Oh, Wen Liang.

But didn’t Shi Ye have his back to him the whole time? Knowing that he had looked at Wen Liang seven or eight times, he seriously doubted whether Shi Ye had an extra eye on the back of his head.

When Shi Ye saw Wen Chi was silent, the expression on his face gradually became playful but there was no emotion in his tone:  “Since you care so much about that person, why don’t Bengong grant your wish and call that person to you and Bengong will let you look at him openly and honestly.”

Wen Chi blushed: “No need…..”

However, Shi Ye directly ignored his words and ordered Eunuch Zhu who came with him to summon Wen Liang and the person who brought Wen Liang to the peach blossom banquet.

Eunuch Zhu received the order and left.

Wen Chi sat on the chair with a strange expression.
Why did he feel that today Shi Ye was like a child who lost his temper but he didn’t have the guts or the life to bicker around with Shi Ye.

Eunuch Zhu moved very quickly and in less than half a stick of incense he brought Li Hao and Wen Liang outside the tent 

“Your Royal Highness.” Eunuch Zhu called out in a low voice, “They are here.”

Before Shi Ye, who was inside, could speak, a figure came out from the adjacent tent.
It was Shi Jin who had been idling around.

Shi Jin walked towards Eunuch Zhu: “Eunuch Zhu, is my royal brother inside ……”

Before he finished speaking, Shi Jin suddenly caught a glimpse of Li Hao who was carefully hiding behind Eunuch Zhu.

In an instant, his heart started pounding.
