After all the dishes were served on the table, the servants retreated.
The table was filled with various dishes with only Lin Bozhou and Meng Huan sitting.

Meng Huan picked up his chopsticks, persistently feeling unhappy.
“What do you mean by ‘again’?”

Why did Meng Huan not feel cheated at all? But according to Lin Bozhou, he seemed to be cheated often.

He knew Lin Bozhou was smart, but Meng Huan didn’t like being treated like a fool, and his lips were slightly turned down.
“Your Highness can speak directly if you have something to say.”

But this matter was a little awkward to say directly.

Lin Bozhou rested his hand on the edge of his chair, and his shaded face was calm.
If he told Meng Huan that he had been drugged with an aphrodisiac by his friend and passionately begged for affection in the carriage, would Meng Huan be so ashamed and indignant that he would hit the pillar on the spot?

Huan Huan wasn’t really into him in the first place, and he suffered a bit that night.
If he said this, it seemed like it would give him a greater advantage……

—As though he was not a husband who forced himself on him.

However, this sentence shouldn’t be said by Lin Bozhou.

The real knot in Meng Huan’s heart was that he had slept with him.
Although he had taken the initiative to seduce Lin Bozhou, would knowing this make his heart feel better and even stop complaining about him?

Meng Huan originally hated Lin Bozhou.
On the contrary, he would have thought: You slept with me but also said I seduced you.
Doing it reluctantly, aren’t you too noble?

He would also say: Can’t you control yourself if people seduce you? How can you count yourself as a man?


His little Huan Huan was moody, and his brain circuit was rather strange.

He had to do it according to his temper.

So it was necessary to clear the injustice, but this truth should never be said by Lin Bozhou.

Lin Bozhou gently pulled his lips up and put the wine cup down, eyes looking at him.
“This husband will protect Huan Huan well in the future.”

“……” Meng Huan’s face was full of incomprehension.

Lin Bozhou lowered his eyes as if he was smiling but also not smiling.
“Otherwise, I’m afraid Huan Huan will be sold in the future and have to help count the money.”


The light was dim.
Lin Bozhou watched him write for a while.
Then, he got up and walked toward the bed chamber with the eunuch carrying the light.

Walking to the door, he met Shan Xing squatting under the eaves and yawning.
“Your Highness didn’t read a book for the past two days.
Marrying a beautiful princess does tend to make men slack, but……”

Shan Xing paused and looked at him.
“I see that Your Highness seems to have not succeeded in staying at the princess’ residence either, huh?”


Very normal.
Meng Huan didn’t let Lin Bozhou touch him now.
A touch would blow him up and make him angry.

Lin Bozhou lowered his eyes, appearing indifferent, and didn’t speak, stepping on the white marble steps.

Shan Xing sounded tired.
“I have squatted here for a long time and waited to read to Your Highness.
Since Your Highness didn’t want to read, why didn’t he send someone to pass the message?”

“Ah.” Lin Bozhou said warmly, “I went to the princess’ courtyard when I returned from the court and forgot.”

Shan Xing: “……”

Shan Xing scratched his head.
As a Qingke, he wasn’t angry and only said, “Okay, then.
If there’s nothing else, this subordinate will go back to sleep first…”

He waited for Lin Bozhou to say, “Go down.”

In the end, Lin Bozhou was quiet for a while, not saying that, but inexplicably asked, “That day on the carriage, how much do you remember?”

“Carriage?” Shan Xing asked, “Your Highness was referring to the day the princess left the palace?”

Lin Bozhou: “Yes.”

When he mentioned this, Shan Xing wasn’t sleepy anymore.

At that time, the movement in the carriage was truly a bit shameless…… Oh no.
It was unrestrained.

He followed along the way by the carriage and could hear the princess obediently and coyly acting spoiled, embracing Lin Bozhou with unfulfilled desire.
And the always calm and collected Lin Bozhou— who normally strictly looked after the residence, with a dagger hidden in smiles, was soft outside but hard on the inside— surprisingly coaxed him patiently, coaxing him like a child while fixing Meng Huan’s collar, extremely gentle.

For Shan Xing, he had never seen something like this since Lin Bozhou was a child.

It only proved that beauty was really a boning knife.

Because this fact was too outrageous, it repeatedly passed through Shan Xing’s mind, so he remembered it very clearly.
He said, “Remember, why?”

“How much do you remember?” Lin Bozhou asked again.

Shan Xing gave him a confirming look.
“All of it.”

Lin Bozhou closed his eyes and let out a,“Mm.”

“Then, you should find an opportunity to go to the princess’ courtyard tomorrow to talk about this matter.
No need to be too blunt.
Just let the princess realize that he was drugged that day and was very active.”

Shan Xing’s face wrinkled into a ball.

How could the prince use his intelligence and wisdom to handle the court with the princess?

Shan Xing: “Why does Your Highness not go?”

Lin Bozhou raised his eyebrows lightly.
“It’s inappropriate for this king to say it.
Huan Huan will be angry.”

Shan Xing immediately understood and frowned again: “But Princess knows I am Your Highness’ person.
Will it be inappropriate if I go to say it?”

If it were replaced with a court battle, it would be easy to associate Shan Xing’s words with Lin Bozhou’s authorization.

This was the most basic caution.

Lin Bozhou looked at him again, seemingly unwilling to say, but had to say, “Huan Huan won’t overthink so much.

“……” Oh.

Shan Xing nodded, “Understood.”
