Chapter 29.1

The more Wen Chi thought about it, the more he felt that something was wrong.

Not to mention that Shi Ye wanting to go out for a stroll was very abnormal but as Shi Ye’s status as the crown prince, even if there were no guard to follow him after leaving the palace, it is impossible not to even have a secret guard to protect him.

Could it be that Eunuch Zhu was rest assured to let him push Shi Ye out?

The most important thing was that Shi Ye is not a powerless person.
He not only has his legs intact but can also strangle people with his bare hands.
Under such circumstances, how could he let himself become a fish in someone else’s chopping board? 

At last, Wen Chi came up with only one answer – that is, Shi Ye had anticipated all this and was ready to be captured.

Thinking about it this way, answers to many questions made sense.

No wonder Shi Ye didn’t bring a bodyguard when he came out this time, no wonder Eunuch Zhu let him push Shi Ye out by himself despite being worried, no wonder Shi Ye repeatedly told him to leave…

If he hadn’t been controlled by that force when he ran away the first time, maybe Shi Ye’s plan would have succeeded.

That means……

The problem was with him.

Wen Chi lowered his head in shame.

He was suddenly very annoyed by the setting of this novel and Wen Liang’s broken system.
Wouldn’t it be nice to help Wen Liang reach the pinnacle of his life by being as quiet as a chicken? Why come to embarrass him, the cannon fodder?

The most desperate thing is that he has no ability to change these things.

“I’m sorry, I know I’m wrong.” Wen Chi was upset and lowered his head in despair, “If I had known that what happened tonight was within His Highness’s plan, I would never have ruined His Highness’s plan, but I was too stupid, it was my stupidity that caused this mistake.”

Shi Ye put him on the ground and said in a cold voice, “It seems that you still know that you are stupid.”

Wen Chi looked down at his toes and slowly, his eyes and nose started to get sore.

He thought about his near death experience and along with the deep sense of powerlessness over fate, the two negative emotions intertwined into a huge net that overwhelmed him in an instant.

Wen Chi blinked and tears flowed out so abruptly.

At that moment, a hand reached out and cupped his chin, the cold fingertips slightly forcing him to lift his head.

There were obvious tear marks on Wen Chi’s pale cheeks.
There were still tears in his eyes and his rosy lips were slightly parted.
He didn’t have time to retract his sad expression, as he stared blankly at Shi Ye.

Shi Ye lowered his eyes and looked down at him, his expression indifferent without the slightest fluctuation – even as he brushed his other hand up to the corner of Wen Chi’s eyes.

“Answer Bengong.” Shi Ye said, “At that time you already left, why are you coming back?”

Wen Chi replied blankly,  “I had to come back.”

Shi Ye seemed to be very obsessed with knowing the answer to this question and asked, “Why?”

It was naturally impossible for Wen Chi to tell the existence of the novel and the system.
He hesitated for a moment and then said in a formal manner: “You are the Crown prince.
If something happens to you, I won’t be able to live any longer, in that case, I might as well stay with you, whether alive or dead.”

Shi Ye’s expression still didn’t change but Wen Chi, who was facing him, could clearly perceive that Shi Ye’s eyes were gradually becoming colder.

“So that’s how it is.” Shi Ye pulled the corner of his mouth and revealed a faint smile, but the smile was full of irony no matter how you looked at it, “It turns out that the medicine I gave you worked, no wonder you are such a greedy person who is afraid of death.
You are willing to risk your life to come back to protect Bengong… that’s right, if Bengong is dead, you can’t live any longer.”

Wen Chi: “…”

He thought that Shi Ye might have misunderstood something but he didn’t want to explain.

“Unfortunately, what’s the use of you other than causing trouble for Bengong?” Shi Ye was in a bad mood, his voice became more and more colder and his words became more and more harsh, “If it wasn’t to save you, how could Bengong kill them all?”

Wen Chi’s face was covered in cold sweat and he hurriedly lowered his head, not daring to look directly into Shi Ye’s eyes again: “I know my mistake.”

Shi Ye snorted coldly and flew away using qingong and the pure white figure quickly disappeared into the thick black night.

It was the first time that Wen Chi had seen some do qinggong so closely.

“Young Master Wen, this servant will take you back to the restaurant to rest first.” Eunuch Zhu’s tone was rather cold but he still said respectfully, “It’s getting late, in order not to disturb others, let’s wait until dawn tomorrow before returning to the palace.”

Wen Chi agreed in a low voice.

On the way back to the restaurant, Wen Chi limped behind Eunuch Zhu.

He didn’t feel anything before but now he felt pain all over his body and it was so painful to walk that it was like walking on the tip of a knife.

Wen Chi gritted his teeth and endured.
He raised his eyes and saw the hunched figure of Eunuch Zhu in front of him.
He couldn’t help but ask, “Eunuch Zhu, who are those people who died just now?”

Eunuch Zhu said:  “Enemies.”

Wen Chi asked, “Which enemy?”

“This servant also wants to know.” Eunuch Zhu gradually slowed down and walked side by side with Wen Chi.
He glanced at Wen Chi with meaningful eyes, “His Royal Highness intended to follow them and wait for the mastermind to show up and then kill them all but unfortunately Cheng Yaojin ambushed the enemy1, and the whole plan was ruined.”

Wen Chi: “…”

Well, he is that Cheng Yaojin.

Eunuch Zhu continued in a shrill voice: “But His Royal Highness asked the dark guard to deal with those two people who were blocking your way.
This servant doesn’t know why His Highness the Crown Prince decided to actually kill those people himself…”

Eunuch Zhu’s voice became smaller and smaller by the end.

In the end, Eunuch Zhu shook his head helplessly.
He couldn’t understand why His Royal Highness was so impulsive and gave up the whole plan for the sake of a momentary emotion, it was not like His Highness’s style of action at all.

After listening to Eunuch Zhu’s words, Wen Chi said guiltily, “I’m sorry.”

Eunuch Zhu urged: “If there is a next time, don’t be so confused.
Just do whatever His Highness asks you to do.
No matter what His Highness does, he has his reasons.”

Wen Chi hummed and after thinking about it, he still found a reason for himself: “I just can’t bear to leave His Royal Highness.”

“Really?” Eunuch Zhu said coolly, “I saw with my own eyes that when Young Master Wen was still in the market, you were running so fast that you didn’t even look back.”

Wen Chi: “…”

If he knew that Eunuch Zhu was staring in the dark at that time, he would have performed a Titanic-style farewell..
