The Regent’s Little Emperor (54)
Xie Yunting lowered himself into the water. Bai Weiwei immediately fled to the opposite corner, refusing to come near.
He leaned against the edge of the pool, a scorching gaze fixed in her direction.
Two people, one staring, another avoiding.
Just like a beast and its prey.
Just when Bai Weiwei thought he wouldn’t endure, and prepared to leap out of the pool, he suddenly leaned back against the edge. His eyelids drooped, veiling his aggressive desire.
“When did you and Chen Jingzhi meet?”
Bai Weiwei didn’t understand why he asked this, but she answered: “We met when we were children. He was the son of the prime minister, and I first met him when he was six. A young child but with a stiff face, I found it very cute.”
When he was six he was cute, so cute that the servants and elders praised him. And because he was too cute his vicious legal mother began to accuse him of false crimes.
He was so cute that it made people jealous and want to frame him.
Where did Chen Jingzhi compare with him?
When Bai Weiwei thought of Chen Jingzhi, her expression was tender and her voice was sweet.
“Although Jingzhi’s face was always serious, he was very protective of me. One time I climbed a tree and couldn’t come down. He reached out to help me down, but he was too small to hold me, and we tumbled out.”
At this point, she couldn’t help but laugh.
Xie Yunting’s heart was struck by her cute smile. He stared fiercely at her.
Chen Jingzhi, that waste. He grew up into waste, and as a child, he was also a waste.
If it were him, she would never have fallen from the tree. Even if she fell, he would have used himself as a meat pad1 to cushion her fall.
When Bai Weiwei talked about her beloved, she finally relaxed. “When I grew up, my imperial father wanted to find a teacher for me. He happened to be the top student of that year, so I asked him to teach me.”
Xie Yunting was angry and frustrated. He was also a top-notch student, even winning the top spot for all six examinations. How could she not choose him?
Was it because Chen Jingzhi was the champion a few years before him?
Bai Weiwei smiled sweetly. “He taught me many things. We played together, recited poetry together, admired the moon and enjoyed the flowers together, watched the lights and drank wine together, went through many many…”
The system turned this way and that. How did this host not flip out saying such things?
It clearly had to practice.
Chen Jingzhi and the little emperor didn’t know each other at all, okay? Because Chen Jingzhi was too strict as a teacher, he was even stabbed by the original when she was young.
The original couldn’t wait to throw Chen Jingzhi down a well. How could they possibly recite poetry together?
The host was bullshitting2 again. The system expressionlessly laughed.
Bai Weiwei continued to brag, “He is very shy, and I was even the first to confess…”
Xie Yunting felt like he was just asking for abuse. What was he doing bringing up this topic, other than making himself jealous?
He saw her joyful smile.
He couldn’t help but angrily command, “Enough.”
The smile on Bai Weiwei’s face disappeared, and she shut up.
Xie Yunting waved aside the petals in the water. He approached her in a flash and captured her in his embrace.
He pinched her jaw, his eyes full of cold and malice.
“Your Majesty is mistaken. There is still one thing that Chen Jingzhi hasn’t allowed you to experience.”
Bai Weiwei frowned doubtfully.
Xie Yunting pressed her against the edge of the pool. He leaned over and said: “He hasn’t made you a real woman yet.”
Not waiting for Bai Weiwei to resist, his fingers kneaded her clear and alluring face, his expression demonic.
“Since he’s a soft egg3 who can’t help you feel the pleasure of being a woman, let this official serve you.”
