Chapter 37.2

During his action, the tip of the brush accidentally brushed across Shi Ye’s cheek, leaving an ink mark about five centimeters long and even Shi Ye’s neckline was stained with ink spots.

Shi Ye’s eyes gradually froze and he looked at Wen Chi expressionlessly.

Wen Chi wiped away the tears on his face with the back of his hand, raised his chin and looked straight into Shi Ye’s eyes without fear.

“You draw very well.” Wen Chi cried until his eyes and ears turned red and his voice was hoarse.
He said word by word, “But I don’t like it.”

Shi Ye remained silent, staring at him coldly.

Wen Chi closed his eyes: “You can kill me now.”

He thought he would succeed in arousing Shi Ye’s anger after saying this, but although he waited for a long time there wasn’t any action from Shi Ye.

They all say that Shi Ye kills people without blinking an eye.
Unexpectedly, he also has his own moments.

Wen Chi thought it was a bit funny, in fact he really laughed out loud.
He didn’t know whether he was laughing at his recklessness or Shi Ye’s hesitation, now that he has the determination to die, he is not afraid to say what he wants.

“Your Highness, you said I look like your enemy, that’s why you pay special attention to me.
But I am not your enemy, no matter how much you humiliate me and retaliate against me, your enemy will not be harmed in the slightest.” The corner of Wen Chi’s mouth hung a relieved smile.
His dejected appearance was softened by this smile.
He looked at Shi Ye with a trace of sympathy in his eyes, “You have always kept hatred in your heart and even tortured me, an innocent person, for those hatred.
But have you ever thought that while you drown yourself in hatred, where your enemy is lurking?”

Shi Ye’s eyes became colder and colder and it seemed to be mixed with other inexplicable emotions.
He took a sudden step forward and squeezed Wen Chi’s chin hard.

The sudden pain made Wen Chi gasp.

Apparently Shi Ye didn’t show mercy this time and one can imagine how gentle he was when he pinched Wen Chi’s chin before.

It was the first time that Shi Ye’s usually indifferent face had such a strong emotion, and he laughed angrily: “You think I use you as that person’s substitute?”

Wen Chi endured the pain and asked back righteously and rhetorically, “Isn’t it?”

Shi Ye said in a deep voice: “Bengong have never thought of using anyone as a substitute, everything is your own wild imagination.”

Wen Chi said: “If you have never thought about it that way, why do you humiliate me over and over again? Wasn’t all the torture I suffered from you was that you wanted to take revenge on that person?”

Shi Ye was speechless and he stared into Wen Chi’s eyes blankly, as if he was looking at something else through Wen Chi but also as if he was stumped by these words.

He didn’t speak for a long time.

Seeing this, Wen Chi gritted his teeth and pushed away Shi Ye who was almost pressed into his body.
He scrambled to pull up the torn clothes to barely cover his body and finally ran away without looking back.

Eunuch Zhu and a group of palace maids and eunuchs stood guard not far away, watching Wen Chi run away.

Eunuch Zhu hesitated and ran over cautiously: “Your Royal Highness…”

Shi Ye waved his hand suddenly and the inkstone on the table flew into the air and hit Eunuch Zhu on the forehead.

The inkstone fell, leaving a bloody wound on Eunuch Zhu’s forehead.

Eunuch Zhu’s whole face was distorted in pain but he didn’t even dare to raise his hand to touch the wound.
He immediately knelt down on the ground like a frightened bird: “Your Royal Highness, please forgive me…”

Shi Ye turned his head, his eyes brimming with anger: “Get lost!”


Wen Chi ran back to Bamboo Flute Residence without stopping.

He was in a very bad shape, not only was he unclothed but his clothes and chest were covered with a mass of black ink and the redness of his eyes had not yet subsided because he had just cried so much.

Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao, who were busy in the courtyard, turned their heads to see Wen Chi and were shocked.

The two little girls hurriedly dropped what they were doing and ran over.

“ Young Master Wen, how did you become like this? Did someone bully you?” Ruo Fang looked Wen Chi up and down and her eyes turned red anxiously.

Ruo Tao was much calmer than Ruo Fang, staring at Wen Chi intently, waiting for Wen Chi’s answer.

But Wen Chi was exhausted and didn’t want to explain to them what happened today.

“It’s not a big deal, don’t worry.” Wen Chi said weakly, “Prepare some hot water for me, I want to take a bath.”

Seeing this, Ruo Fang and Ruo Tao looked at each other but suppressed the doubts in their hearts.

The two little girls moved quickly and it didn’t take long for the bath water to be ready.

At this time, the sky outside was completely dark and only two candles barely illuminated the room.

Wen Chi sat at the bottom of the barrel, hugging his knees with his hands, his whole body was immersed in the hot water with only his head exposed.

The water was very hot but it couldn’t dispel the coldness in Wen Chi’s heart.

He thought he was really finished.

There were so many examples before him and he didn’t think he was so special that Shi Ye could pamper him again and again.
As far as his attitude towards Shi Ye just now was concerned, it would not be too much for Shi Ye to strangle him a hundred times.

Instead of waiting for Shi Ye to do it, he might as well settle it himself.
