The incense burner on the table lighted up, the smell of sandalwood filled the room.
Wind blowing lightly outside the window.
In this quiet summer afternoon, the smell makes people think of getting a nap.
When Zhu WuXin was dragged up to the room, the person who was waiting for her has fallen asleep on the chair, head swaying about.
Ning Huang said, I won’t bother you (and leave first), you can start chatting.
Zhu Wuxin nodded and walked towards the person on the chair.
Then, gathering the energy at ‘lower stomach’, her right hand hooking her left hand, she proceed to sing “ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah”
(Author note : Please refer to the warm-up tone in the music class)
Being sung at this manner, the person was stunned, slid down directly from the chair.
Seeing Zhu WuXin, she then quickly fixed her clothes properly and loudly shouted with joy, “Miss, Miss, I finally can see you!”
In order to express high spirits, Zhu WuXin copied Xiao Lian’s words and said, “Xiao Lian, Xiao Lian, I finally can see you! Come, let us do a revolutionary hug.”
“Miss, I heard that you were rescued by His Royal Highness Crown Prince, are you all right?”
“No problem, no problem. I’m strong, and ate very well. How about you? Did you found HongSan?”
“Found him, found him. I met the Young Master when he was halfway back to the House.”
Saying that, Xiao Lian reached to her side and took out a large bag of things to put on the table, opening it for Zhu WuXin to see.
“Miss, this, this and also that one, all were medicines given by the Young Master to you.”
“Young Master said all these are the best ‘salve’, if you use it definitely will get better. Guaranteed to be as smooth as lake water.”
[Translator note : Aww, someone give HongSan a cookie
Zhu WuXin smiled, she really like Xiao Lian’s optimistic personality which always see the benefits from anything.
Looking all around, “Why didn’t HongSan came to see me?”
When HongSan was mentioned, Xiao Lian’s head droop to one side.
“After the Young Master returned home, he had a big quarrel with the Master and was locked up by him.”
“That old geezer have gone mad! Was he injured or beaten?”
“Miss, don’t worry. Master won’t have the heart to beat Second Young Master.”
“He was only locked inside his court, all the guards was stationed to look at him, not letting Young Master come out to see you.”
“That is fine then, that is fine. As long as he was all right, it’s nothing to be locked up.”
Xiao Lian then shook her head, “No, it’s not like that. Originally there’s nothing big that Master locked him up.”
“But Young Master used hunger strike to protest to ask to be released. Just like this keep making chaos with the Master. Young Master has not eaten for two days already.”
[Translator note : Lol, the author used this chinese word as the emoticon so I leave it as it is. If you don’t understand, the emoticon/word looked like a face make a ‘depressed/frustrated/embarrassed’ expression, in whatever context it fits. You can always google it up]
“Has HongSan gone mad? All roads lead to Hell, why would he make it difficult for his stomach!”
The moment Zhu WuXin heard it, she became irritable, walking in circles inside the room.
“It’s not very appropriate for me to go back now.”
“I want Zhu Hou to personally ask me to go back, if I return now, wouldn’t that mean I am giving up?”
Xiao Lian don’t understand what Zhu WuXin’s words, puzzled, “Miss, Master rather you never come back. Why would he come to ask you?”
“Don’t worry. If it were other times, maybe he will think so.”
“But now, as long as I’m not back, he won’t have a peace of mind.”
“Because he was afraid I will say something that shouldn’t be said to the Crown Prince, plus I’m living together with Ning Huang.”
“Only when I returned, then Ning Huang couldn’t continue staying in this East Palace. So, in any case he will still want me to go back.”
“Oh, I see. Miss you are really clever.” Xiao Lian patted her own head with a sudden realization.
Zhu WuXin have thought up plans to persuade HongSan, but how can she meet him?
Zhu WuXin suddenly thought of an idea, went to Xiao Lian’s ear and quietly discussed together.
