Chapter 21

Translator: Darling | Editor: Nebosuke


In the living room of the outer courtyard, Prince Xu sat firmly on the chair in the center . At this time, the sun was shining brightly . The bluestone floor that had just been cleaned in the morning glowed with soft light, which was projected on Prince Xu’s emerald white silver thread robe . ​There was a silvery-white faint glow on the whole body, so people couldn’t open their eyes, and even more, he set off his​ luxurious expression .

He looked so confident with a cold smile on his face, and he seemed to completely treat housekeeper Yu standing beside him like air .

   “…Prince, please forgive us . It is really inconvenient for Mrs . Fu to see guests…”

   Although​ housekeeper Yu​ said that, Prince Xu acted as if it was just wind​ passing over​ his​ ear .

  “Oh? Then what you mean is​ today I​ came here to​ wasting time​ and​ I​ have​ to​ let​ go of​ my​ horse?”​ Prince​ Xu held the teacup and blew the tea leaves floating on the hot water leisurely, “Or are General Yu’s military achievements are getting bigger and​ even the Yu​ family​ can treat me​ badly like​ that?!”

    Housekeeper Yu immediately bowed his head and dared not speak again .

   Although this Prince​ Xu didn’t have​ anything special with​ Yu home, he was notorious in capital’s influential officials surrounding, not because of how violent he was, but because of how he behaved unexpectedly and never made sense . When he is in a good​ mood, everything is ok and if​ he​ is​ in​ a bad mood, even an egg can make you​ dig up​ your​ bone .

   What’s even more frustrating is that he is to be respected, just because he is the adorable 9th Prince​ of the current emperor . ​ This just decides one thing: if he provokes you, you have to be forced to​ suffer in​ silence, but if you provoke him, you just set​ the horse’s house on fire .

   All nine sons of​ the​ emperor​ were​ different . ​ As the youngest Prince, Prince Xu surly behaved as he pleased . No matter who provoked him, that person would have a headache for a long time .

  Housekeeper Yu looked at the mischievous prince on the chair, hesitating to speak or not, anxiously like the ants on the hot pot .

     At this time, a cold voice rang from​ the​ outside of the hall: “I didn’t know​ ​about the​ honorary presence of​ Prince​ Xu, what’s the matter?”

   Hearing the voice of his savior, he hopefully raised his head . Finally Master came out to​ meet the​ Prince, and he could now rest .

      But in the next moment, he was fixed on the spot as he​ was​ hit​ by​ a lightning strike, and now he couldn’t even speak .

    He only saw​ Yu​ Linglong​ in​ a​ red dress standing at​ the​ door under the​ sunlight, and looking directly at  Prince​ Xu​ on​ the​ chair​ with​ a​ cold​ look .

   Wasn’t it the​ path to​ the​ enemy? Everyone​ closed their​ doors, but this 4th miss still​ dared​ to​ come out!? 

  He​ saw Prince​ Xu​ smiled slightly and put down the teacup in his hand: “It turned out to be the fourth miss of the Yu family . I thought I met a female thief last night!”

   Did he just say that he was a​ female thief? Yu​ Linglong​ sneered slightly . Do you want to fight? Let’s see​ who​ will​ win!

 “​Prince, you are overpraising me . My skills are not good​ enough as you, riding a horse while drunk in​ the​ late​ night!” Yu​ Linglong​ opposed back . ​ “Disturb everything, everyone, I wonder is that what the​ Prince​ wishes ​for?”

   “Okay, you are really is the daughter of​ the tiger father!” Prince​ Xu​ suddenly opened the​ folded fan​ in​ his​ hand, and on the fan, there was​ a​ panoramic​ landscape painting with​ fine ink, which added one more layer of​ nobility for​ him . And since he was​ also a refined noble, he didn’t want to lose the​ elegant vibe .

   “My life is​ good, there’s nothing more than aesthetic wine​ and​ a fine​ horse . ​ Now, you took away my horse, so how should I deal with​ this​ crime?”

  The man in the seat seemed to be laughing, but a pair of his eyes​ kept staring at Yu Linglong — his eyes examining and displaying impatience .

  This girl, even after knowing his identity, still dared to stand in​ front​ of​ him proudly like an arrogant​ unique lotus . She really was impressive .  

    Yu Linglong sneered, raising her little chin without fear: “Then I dare to ask the prince: by​ riding a horse in the middle of the night, disturbing the civilians, and disturbing the passers-by for no reason, how will you name this​ crime!?”

   If you​ are​ a needle, then I am the awn . Let’s see who’s harder, and who’s afraid of who!?

  The housekeeper by​ the​ side was shocked to hear that and​ was so frightened that he fell on his knees and stuttered: “Prince, Prince Xu, our 4th miss arrived at the house only a​ few days​ ago, she doesn’t understand the rules, and I beg the Prince to​ forgive…  “

   In the living​ room, two tit-for-tat people didn’t even look at him at all . Their eyes met volley, one with slight inquiry and surprise, one unrelenting and untamed like a galloping wild horse in the vast grassland . Fire sparks almost appeared in the air .

   At this critical moment, a very weak sound came over, breaking the tension in the room .

     “The Prince has arrived . I am late, and I hope the Prince would forgive me . ”

     Prince Xu snorted slowly and he slowly looked away . His eyes fell on the person who had just come in .

    He saw Mu Shi with the supporting maid walking out tremblingly . The thick fat powder still couldn’t cover the bruise marks on her face . Her footsteps were a little bigger and she couldn’t help the twitching of the corner of her eye, which was obviously painful and unbearable .

     There was a trace of surprise in Prince Xu’s eyes, and he quickly glanced at Yu Linglong .

     He​ felt that the reason why Mu Shi became like​ that was related to the girl in front of him .

     Mu Shi gritted her teeth and endured the pain, saluted Prince Xu, and tried to squeeze out a reluctant smile, saying, “May I know what is the reason for your visit?”

    Prince​ Xu smiled slightly, leaning leisurely on the back of the chair, and it seemed to restore the image of the usual royal prince . He said casually: “Don’t pretend . If you are really respectful to me, you will not leave me here for​ a​ long​ time . ”

    Mu Shi tried hard​ to​ come out​ and​ meet the​ guest, and after hearing Prince Xu’s words which regarded her as disrespected, this made her speechless and​ she​ couldn’t even​ say a​ word .

   She could no longer support her aching body . She fell onto her knees on the ground and cried, “Even if I had ten thousand courage in my body, I would not dare to disrespect the Prince . I ask the Prince to understand that I​ am​ sick and forgive me!”

    Yu Linglong looked at Mu Shi’s tears and begging, and she looked away in disgust .

     Was this the same Madam Yu who was the one​ urged her the night before? She was so cruel and vicious to the girl, but so humiliating to the Prince of a wine bag . It really was a model of bullying and fear .

    Prince Xu glanced at Mu Shi, but his gaze fell on Yu Linglong who kept her head upright .

     Mu Shi said she was sick? How ridiculous . Everyone​ could tell with​ a glance that she was hurt!

    But how could a lady in a deep house compound be so seriously injured? Looking at the​ Yu​ Linglong​ by​ the side, even a fool could also guess the clue .

   Prince Xu swayed his fan leisurely and stayed like a gentleman, but his tone slightly changed: “Come on, get up, if other people see this, they will think I am​ bullying an​ old, weak, ill madam!”​

   Mu​ Shi secretly stated in​ her mind, ‘What other people, currently, in the Yu home, there is no master . He​ obviously came to​ bully this weak, old, ill woman . ’ 

    Thinking this way in her heart, she dare not to​ say so out loud . Mu Shi lowered her eyes, slowly stood up, and asked respectfully: “The Prince arrived in person, may I know why?”

      Prince​ Xu​ looked at Yu Linglong with a smile: “In this case, Madam, ask your 4th miss!”
