Chapter 4.1

Wen Chi was very surprised but the surprise didn’t last long before dissipating with the wind.

He snorted and continued to lie down peacefully.

It’s just the beginning of spring and the flowers have started blooming while the grasses are tall and the warblers are in the air.

Ping An buried his head and waited for a while but didn’t get any response from Wen Chi.

“Young Master Wen?” Ping An asked cautiously.
He quietly raised his head and boldly stretched his head to look inside the curtain.

Only to see Wen Chi with his eyes closed and mouth slightly opened.
He didn’t know when he had fallen asleep and he seemed to be sleeping soundly.

Ping An: “…”

He didn’t dare to disturb Wen Chi.
So he got up from the ground lightly and quietly left the bedroom.

In the afternoon, Ruo Tao was making pastries in the kitchen.
Wen Chi finally got up from the bed, put on some clothes and went to guard the kitchen door.

When Ruo Tao turned her back and saw Wen Chi’s figure, she was so frightened that she fell to the ground with a plop.
“Wen…..Young Master Wen, why are you here?” 

Ruo Tao looked nervous and humble.
She said softly in a cat-like voice, “Go and rest first.
This servant will bring the food soon.”

 Wen Chi, who was startled by her movement, gave an involuntary hiss.  

There was the sound of kneeling on the ground…

It sounded painful

“Get up.” Wen Chi said, “Don’t kneel in front of me in the future.”

Ruo Tao quickly got up and buried her head: “This slave will bear in mind.”

Wen Chi said again, “Don’t mind me.
You can continue with your work.”

Ruo Tao responded and turned around to get busy in the kitchen again.
Perhaps because she knew that Wen Chi was watching behind her, her movements were much more restrained than earlier.

However, Wen Chi didn’t intend to come to supervise the work.
He took advantage of Ruo Tao’s busy work to look at the items in the kitchen.
After he had a good idea, he left.

In the afternoon, the sun was just right so Wen Chi lay happily on the wicker chair and basked in the sun while squinting his eyes.

At this time, Ruo Tao came over with the finished pastries and gently placed it on the stone table beside the rattan chair.

“Ruo Tao.” Wen Chi stopped Ruo Tao, who was about to leave, “Help me prepare a few things.”

Ruo Tao clenched her fingers and asked in a low voice, “What does Young Master Wen want this servant to prepare?”

Wen Chi thought about it and briefly explained the things that he needed.

The next morning…

Wen Chi was still asleep when Ping An hurried in again.

“Young Master Wen, Young Master Wen.” Ping An kneeled in front of the bed, playing the role of a megaphone very dedicatedly, “There are people in the East palace again!”

Wen Chi, who had been awakened by the sound of his footsteps, “……”

He thought to himself, this phrase is familiar – oh yes, Ping An said the same thing yesterday morning.

Before Wen Chi could respond, Ping An said to himself, “I heard that the ones who came in today are the Du Wei family’s second young lady and the young lady from the Xizhou prefectural governor’s family.”

Wen Chi sighed inwardly.

Even if Shi Ye married all the men and women of the whole country into the East Palace, it was none of his business…

Who knew that just after he finished thinking about it, he heard Ping An change his tone and said in a sinister tone: “There are more and more enemies.
Why don’t we strike first, in case those people later get ahead and play all the tricks to get the Crown Prince’s heart.”

What the hell!

Wen Chi suddenly opened his eyes.

Why did it switch to the Gong Dou script1It is an ancient court drama  about palace fighting LOL all of a sudden?

And Ping An – what’s up with him looking so skilled?

Wen Chi was startled, his drowsiness dissipated instantly and he sat up from the bed.

“Don’t think about it.” Wen Chi hurriedly said, “Let them do whatever they want, I have no opinion about that.”

Ping An was confused: “But Young Master Wen, the palace is not as good as outside the palace.
As long as you step inside these walls, many things will become out of your control, even if we do not offend others, it is difficult to ensure that others do not offend us.”

Don’t know if it was Wen Chi’s illusion but he actually heard a hint of hatred in Ping An’s tone.

Wen Chi knew his words were reasonable, but he couldn’t do the same intrigue as the concubines in the harem.

Besides, he is really not good at fighting with others.
With his IQ, he can’t survive three episodes in a palace fighting drama at all and he can only give it away for others even before he starts. 

Wen Chi deliberated for a while before looking at the slightly reluctant Ping An.
He in turn reassured Ping An: “But I have nothing now, how can I make the first move?  Why don’t we first halt the troops and wait2按兵不动 [àn bīng bú dòng] halt the troops and wait;   keep quiet;   be on the alert, but make no move;   bide one’s time, and respond to any changes.”

As soon as he finished speaking, Ping An’s face was filled with joy: “Young Master Wen is humble , you still have His Highness the Crown prince, this mountain to rely on.”

The corners of Wen Ji’s mouth twitched: “…… When did the Crown Prince say he would be my backer?”
