Chapter 7.2

Wen Chi was stunned for a while, before realizing that Eunuch Zhu was the eunuch who followed Shi Ye.

He hurriedly put down the things in his hands and went out to greet him.
He saw Eunuch Zhu waiting in the courtyard looking very cold and indifferent.
And behind him were two palace maids with their heads buried in their chests.

Seeing Wen Chi approaching, Eunuch Zhu glanced at him indifferently and then said in a pitched voice, “Young Master Wen, this servant has been ordered by His Royal Highness to pick up Young Master Wen.”

Wen Ji was shocked in his heart and thought to himself, “I’m dead.”

What should come will still come.

He followed Eunuch Zhu with a desperate heart and walked straight towards the direction of the study.

When he reached the study, Wen Chi saw a thin figure kneeling under the stairs of the study from a distance.

As the distance got closer, he found that the person kneeling on the ground was a man or a young man in gorgeous clothes, probably less than twenty years old.

The man looked down at the ground.
His entire face was immersed in the shadows and he could not clearly see his expression.

Wen Chi became curious.
When passing by, he deliberately looked at him but he could only vaguely see the man’s jawline tightening, as if he was holding back something.

Just when Wen Chi was about to withdraw his gaze, the man seemed to feel something.
He suddenly  raised his head and looked straight at him.

Four eyes met.

Wen Chi caught the surprise in the man’s eyes, accompanied by an unexpected look of jealousy.

“Eunuch Zhu, who is he?” The man had a gorgeous face and the red mole between his eyebrows which was illuminated by the bright sunlight.
He pointed at Wen Chi angrily, “Why can he see His Royal Highness the Crown Prince? Why should I be stopped by you guys!”

Eunuch Zhu frowned and glanced at the man impatiently: “Young Master Zhao, this is all at the behest of His Highness the Crown Prince and this servant does not dare to make the decision.”

“I don’t believe it!” The man said angrily, “I want to see His Royal Highness!”

Eunuch Zhu didn’t bother to pay attention to him and led Wen Chi directly inside.

The man behind wanted to follow but was stopped at the bottom of the steps by some small eunuchs guarding the door.

Wen Chi guessed that the man was also a member of the crown prince’s huge harem but he didn’t dare to ask more and followed Eunuch Zhu quietly as a chicken through the hall and finally came to Shi Ye’s study.

Eunuch Zhu stopped and announced softly, “His Royal Highness, the person is here.”

Wen Chi stood nervously behind Eunuch Zhu, not moving a muscle and not even daring to lift his chin.

After a long time, he heard Shi Ye let out a faint hum.

Eunuch Zhu turned his head and gave Wen Chi a meaningful glance, motioning him to go in and sit down.
Then Eunuch Zhu stepped forward to take the memorial from the little eunuch and read it as softly as the day before.

Wen Chi lightly walked to the couch that he sat on that day and sat down slowly.
For fear of provoking the crown prince, he tried his best not to make any noise during the whole process.

After sitting down, he quietly raised his head and glanced at Shi Ye.

He saw Shi Ye sitting behind the desk, holding his chin as always, closing his eyes and resting, as if he couldn’t even bother to glance at him from the corner of his eyes. 

Wen Chi breathed a sigh of relief and began to try his best to become transparent.

Apart from Eunuch Zhu’s slow and long voice, the study was very quiet.
Shi Ye didn’t call to stop and Eunuch Zhu just kept on reading.

 This apparent calmness lasted for an unknown period of time and was suddenly broken by an intermittent noise.

“His Royal Highness…I want to see His Royal Highness…”

“Don’t stop me…”

“Your Royal Highness…”

It seemed to be the voice of the man kneeling outside.

And the noise was getting clearer and closer.

Wen Chi listened carefully and wondered if that man had broken through the eunuchs and barged in.

He secretly thought that this was bad, so he quickly looked at Shi Ye–Sure enough, Shi Ye opened his eyes because of the noise and there was no sleepiness in those dark eyes, instead, there seemed to be a dark tide surging.

Shi Ye said, “It’s so noisy.”

With just three words, Eunuch Zhu and all the eunuchs and palace maids were so frightened that they fell to their knees the next moment.

“His Royal Highness, forgive me, it’s this servant’s fault for not doing his job properly.” Eunuch Zhu said tremblingly.

Shi Ye waved his hand.

Eunuch Zhu understood instantly, got up from the ground and hurriedly led several small eunuchs out.

Wen Chi thought that Eunuch Zhu and the others were going to take tough measures to drive the man away but not long after Eunuch Zhu and the others went out, the man’s miserable screams and the muffled sound of countless sticks hitting the flesh came from outside.

The study room was so quiet that a pin drop could be heard and there were a few eunuchs left, all kneeling on the floor, shivering with fear.

Wen Chi also turned pale.

Suddenly, he felt a strong gaze.
He turned his head to look subconsciously and saw Shi Ye inclined his head, staring at him intently.
The pair of emotionless eyes were slowly examining him.

Wen Chi was so frightened that a fine layer of sweat oozed out of his forehead.

In that instant, he didn’t look away, nor did he continue to look at Shi Ye.

The screams outside became more and more tragic but Eunuch Zhu and others had no intention of stopping, as if they wanted to beat the man to death.

Wen Chi watched helplessly as the palace maid pushed Shi Ye’s wheelchair over.
His hands were shaking so he clutched the hem of his clothes, trying not to make himself shake so obviously.

Not long after, Shi Ye came to him.

Shi Ye put his hands on the edge of the couch and leaned closer to him, the faint sandalwood incense drowned him like sea water.

Wen Chi hurriedly lowered his eyes, not daring to look at Shi Ye’s severely burned face or to be more precise, he did not dare to look Shi Ye in the eyes.

He was wrapped in Shi Ye’s breath, almost suffocating.

For a moment, Shi Ye’s deep voice rang out: “Do you know where Bengong has been these days?”
