Laughing and talking, their carriage arrived at the gate of Fengyue Tower. When Fu Yun was about to follow her in, Ji Ting stopped him, “You wait outside, this princess will bring him down and return.”
“Your Highness!” Fu Yun started to glare unhappily.
Ji Ting was helpless, “Be obedient.”
“Your Royal Highness, if anything happens just call out.” Although Chu Yan disagreed with letting Ji Ting go in alone, in front of outsiders he would never refute her.
Ji Ting nodded, turned around, and went in. Fu Yun looked at Chu Yan angrily, “Aren’t you afraid that that damn slave Shen Tuchuan will vent his shame and anger on the princess?”
“His parents are still on the frontier, so he wouldn’t dare to touch the princess,” Chu Yan took the knife and sat down on the front of the carriage.
Fu Yun followed over. “Then what if he says something harsh?”
“Do you think the princess will let him?” Chu Yan asked back.
Fu Yun wanted to nod his head, but he thought again. Their princess really wasn’t the kind to let people walk all over her. The thought reassured him. Feeling more comfortable, he borrowed some money from the coachmen to buy some candied fruit.
Ji Ting, who didn’t know that her meeting Shen Tuchuan would cause them to make up so many stories in their heads, sat in the wing and waited. Soon, Shen Tuchuan walked in.
“Greetings to your Highness.” This time, Shen Tuchuan was not perfunctory like last time, but instead, bowed to her respectfully.
Ji Ting raised her eyebrows, “Oh, why are you suddenly sensible today?”
“Thank you for your Highness the princess’ care during this time,” Although Shen Tuchuan looked down to thank her, he was still reluctant in his heart. He hated this woman who had molested him, yet now he had to rely on her to keep any bit of his self-esteem. This kind of turmoil made him prefer not to receive her favor.
Ji Ting didn’t bother to care what that awkward villain thought. She snorted and threw the letter to him, “Enough. I came for this and nothing else. This is a letter from the prime minister. I am here to deliver it in his place. “
Shen Tuchuan suddenly raised his head. His expression moved slightly when he saw the familiar words on the envelope but he did not go forward to take it, “Why is my father’s letter with your Highness?”
“This princess was afraid that he would encounter a mishap on the road, so I escorted him along the way. This letter was given to this princess’ people by the prime minister,” Ji Ting explained calmly to him, not mentioning anything on the matter of taking him away.
Shen Tuchuan was silent for a moment before he took the envelope. Seeing that Ji Ting didn’t intend to leave, he simply opened it and began to read the letter in front of her.
Ji Ting stared at his face for a while, and saw that his eyes were slightly moisturized after seeing the familiar handwriting. He seemed to be moved by the contents of the letter. Suddenly, his face changed, becoming rigid. It seemed as if he had read something he didn’t like. He pursed his lips and read on. The more he read, the more solemn his face became.
The corners of Ji Ting’s mouth rose uncontrollably, and she hurriedly grabbed a cup of tea to cover her lips so as not to reveal her feelings of satisfaction.
The letter was not that long, but Shen Tuchuan read it for a full half an hour. Ji Ting sat for so long that her waist was sore. She yawned and reminded him, “Master Shentu, is this letter so long? Hurry up and burn it when you’re finished reading, lest it be seen one day and inconvenience this princess.”
Shen Tuchuan gripped the letter paper tightly and soon, the flat letter in his hands was wrinkled. Ji Ting snorted and simply stood up and walked out, “If Master Shentu is really unwilling, then keep it. But you must be careful not to get caught.”
Ji Ting calmly said these words as she threw a leisurely glance his way. With a raise of her chin, she continued towards the door. However, as soon as she passed him, her facade broke and her calmness gave way to worry. In her heart, she couldn’t help but wonder why he hadn’t stopped her yet. Did he not even listen to his own father’s words?
Yes, the reason why Ji Ting was so emboldened today was entirely because of the two letters sent back by Prime Minister Shentu. The letter addressed to her had begged her in a deferential tone to rescue his only son from Fengyue Tower, while the letter given to Shen Tuchuan had ordered him to lay down his dignity and accept the help of the princess.
In the letter to Shen Tuchuan, Prime Minister Shentu’s wording was very harsh. He seemed to have expected Shen Tuchuan to be reluctant, so he not only reprimanded him, but also told him various truths, and finally used his mother worrying about him so much that she became ill to pressure him.
In short, after the letter, Ji Ting did not believe that the villain, known for being a filial son, would disobey his father’s wishes.
…… But this kind of self-assuredness was what she had in the past, she was already almost at the door now but Shen Tuchuan still had no reaction at all. Ji Ting was not so confident anymore.
Was it that she protected him too well and that was why he was so stubborn? Should she have let the old madam grind his spirit a little? As Ji Ting thought, her right foot stepped out of the door.
“Your Highness, stay,” Shen Tuchuan’s voice revealed a trace of humiliation and tension.
After hearing this, Ji Ting’s red lips slightly raised. She coughed, and with a face full of indifference, turned her head to look at him, “What?”
“Has your Highness ever read my father’s letter?” Shen Tuchuan looked at her with a pair of clear and persistent eyes that seemed to see through her heart.
At this critical moment, Ji Ting did not give way and instead frowned calmly, “Why would this princess look at your letter?”
“It’s the commoner who has overstepped,” Shen Tuchuan looked down.
Ji Ting didn’t seem to care much, “If there’s nothing wrong, this princess will leave first. You don’t have to worry about being at Fengyue Tower. This princess has already arranged things. No one will come to trouble you. You only need to live here until the day when the Shentu family settles their injustice and rises up again.”
After she spoke, she waited for Shen Tuchuan to say ‘Thank you, your Highness’ but no reply came from him even after a long time. Suddenly, she felt even more sure and completely relaxed. With a flick of her sleeves, draped in gorgeous clothes and exuding a glamorous aura, she went to leave again.
