The Regent’s Little Emperor (8)
Not waiting for Xie Yunting to attack, Bai Weiwei, panicking over the object beneath her, twisted her body.
He immediately stifled a groan. His face flashed with a suspicious blush. Even his fingers holding her waist were tight.
Bai Weiwei: “Not like a dagger, It’s both short and blunt.”
Xie Yunting lost his patience. He roughly pushed Bai Weiwei to the ground.
Gao Jixiang immediately panicked and rushed to support Bai Weiwei, who rolled to the ground.
Golden light flashed in Bai Weiwei’s eyes1, but her body didn’t hit the ground, and she just saw black.
Xie Yunting was unable to sit still. He felt a fire burning in the pit of his stomach. He jumped up, his expression terrible.
The robe only loosely covered the protrusion.
But the person who caused the situation was inexperienced.
Listening to this little emperor’s foolish, naive, and ridiculous words, his eyes changed.
The guards standing at the door, the eunuchs beside him, and Chen Jingzhi, who was still attached to the wall of his cell, all looked at Xie Yunting in shock and disbelief.
And then they remembered, Xie Yunting was completely broken. It was only that he was not close to any females, actually following established customs.
Was it not good self-control, was it… cut-sleeve2?
This cut-sleeve was actually cut for the emperor!
It wasn’t so much of a rebellion as it was a violation of human rights and going against the nature of heaven.
Xie Yunting also felt like he’d been poisoned. Just holding this waste, and his body inexplicably reacted.
It was simply humiliating3.
After Bai Weiwei’s dizziness, her face turned red as she shouted angrily at him: “You want to kill and plunder at will, we will not give in to you.”
If this were any other time, Xie Yunting would have stabbed him with his sword.
It was not that hard to raise another puppet.
He only let Bai Wei temporarily occupy the position because it was justified in the name of the crown prince.
But somehow, seeing her angry, tender face, his mind was full of thoughts.
The idea of killing her didn’t occur to him.
His face was gloomy, his voice as cold as winter. “Asking the emperor to please return, and…”
His eyes gazed slowly at Bai Weiwei, but quickly turned to Chen Jingzhi.
He looked at Chen Jingzhi’s grim face, finally feeling calm.
“And purge the area immediately.”
Apart from himself, the confidant and Chen Jingzhi, the remaining people who heard the little emperor’s words must be obliterated.
Of course, Gao Jixiang also escaped disaster thanks to the little emperor.
After Bai Weiwei was sent back to her bedroom, she really couldn’t bear the pain.
This stupid body was really too weak, gasping for breath after two steps. Xie Yunting would likely come to settle the score, but she really didn’t have the strength.
Gao Jixiang wept, “How could this Xie thief have such vile thoughts in his heart? If he dares to do anything to the emperor, this old slave will give up his life to stop it.”
Bai Weiwei face was at a loss. “What vile thoughts, thief Xie will kill us sooner or later, you are completely unrelated. If you can run away, you should run away, do not lose your life for us.”
Gao Jixiang saw her naivete, knowing she really wasn’t aware.
The queen was busy fighting for power, and because of Bai Weiwei’s secret, she didn’t allow anybody to come close.
So she didn’t understand anything.
The old eunuch was very worried. What to do?
Who would have thought that Xie Yunting this big thief, was a homosexual4.

Xie Yunting tired of reading the memorials and pushed them away.
His trusted eunuch came over and respectfully said, “Tai Fu should rest for a bit.”
He asked coldly: “What did the little emperor do?”
The eunuch gave a detailed account of Bai Weiwei’s movements, and then he said, “Just now, the emperor let this person send a drink. This old slave specifically sent over a strong alcohol.”
Xie Yunting’s eyes suddenly froze.
Hard liquor may be nothing to others, but the little emperor’s naturally weak body would likely keel over from just a few drinks.
He smacked the table hard. “Who told you to send it?”
1: 白薇薇被摔到眼冒金光: not too sure about this. I keep getting mostly questions like “xx sees golden light/eyes flashing golden light, what kind of disease is this.”It could possibly be referring to the gold sparkles you see in anime and manga/manhua when a character sees money. Or when you’re exhausted, your brain starts seeing things, like the eyes of Venus (???? goddess of love). So BWW is either going like “jackpot! Me falling will totally make XYT gain affection pts (???)”or“my life is flashing before my eyes help”↩
2: 断袖之癖: a euphemism for a homosexual man. Supposedly, the term came from a story about an emperor and his lover. Called to a meeting but unwilling to wake his lover sleeping on his sleeve, the emperor cut off his sleeve.↩
3: 奇耻大辱: extraordinary shame and humiliation.↩
4: 龙阳/龙阳君: another term for a homosexual man, named after Wei Anli Wang’s most doted on male pet.↩
