Give A Kiss To Paranoid Men [Quick Transmigration] - 43.1
Sorry all, school is hell and I’m on fire. I’m not dropping this though.
Just as the old madam was about to salute, she exclaimed upon hearing those words. After she realized her faux pas, she was a little bit flustered, “Your Highness, this, this, Master Shentu?”
“Can’t you see that this princess brought enough money when coming here today.” Ji Ting didn’t look at her, bending over to help Shen Tuchuan up.
The old madam understood in an instant. Her surprise surpassing her panic, she congratulated Ji Ting. “Her Royal Highness is really amazing. Even a Master Shentu who is mighty like a dragon and phoenix has also bowed under the pomegranate skirt of her Highness. This commoner congratulates her Highness’ in obtaining her favorite person.”
Shen Tuchuan heard how she had said ‘obtained’ and a trace of humiliation flashed through his eyes.
Ji Ting casually threw her a heavy purse, then turned to look at Shen Tuchuan. “The things Fengyue Tower gave you, you won’t need. Do you have any personal items to pack?”
“This commoner has long only had himself.” Shen Tuchuan replied lightly, but his eyes swept over the old madam’s purse several times.
Ji Ting nodded, “Since that’s the case, then leave with this princess now.”
After the two of them spoke, no one paid any more attention to the old madam, and one after another, they walked out of Fengyue Tower.
In front of the carriage at the gate, Fu Yun and Chu Yan were already annoyed of waiting. After seeing Ji Ting come out, they greeted her immediately. Before they could speak, Ji Ting interrupted them first. “Originally, I just came here to deliver a letter. I didn’t expect that there would be an unexpected gain. Young Master Shentu was willing to go back with us.”
Chu Yan understood in an instant. Fu Yun was stunned, and also quickly understood. Immediately, he followed in cooperation, “Really? Didn’t he say that he wouldn’t go to our princess mansion? Why does he suddenly want to go, isn’t this too sudden.”
“It’s not sudden, in the future you will be a family, you have to get along well, ok?” Ji Ting pretended to lecture Fu Yun.
Before Fu Yun could speak, Shen Tuchuan who had come over took a look at the master and servant carrying out a play and slowly said, “It’s indeed sudden, if not for the princess carrying around a purse of money every day, I am afraid that this commoner would not be able to leave Fengyue Tower today.”
If it wasn’t because she had already prepared to redeem him, why would she bring such a large amount of money just to send a letter? How stupid was he just now to think that Ji Ting did not know the contents of the letter.
Ji Ting: “……” How did she forget about this matter?
The atmosphere suddenly became awkward.
At critical moments like this, one could rely on cool brother to speak, “He’s already been redeemed, what else is there to say? Let’s go back quickly, Mu Yuzhi is still waiting.”
So the group got into the carriage and quickly went towards the princess mansion.
On the carriage, Shen Tuchuan kept his expressionless countenance. Chu Yan was holding his knife and letting out a frigid aura. Ji Ting and Fu Yun were sandwiched between the two people. For some reason, they didn’t dare to make noise anymore, so they could only lower their heads and eat pieces of desert together.
Shen Tuchuan’s ears were filled with crunching sounds. Unable to bear it, he finally looked over and saw the previously dignified princess currently just like a hamster who was not fed enough, eating with swelling cheeks..
The contrast was too great. Shen Tuchuan was stunned for a moment, but before he could get a more detailed look, a bright ray of light flashed in his eyes. He coldly looked over and saw Chu Yan’s knife out of its sheath, the light from before having been reflected by the blade.
Chu Yan was expressionless, his gaze communicating, ‘be good’.
Shen Tuchuan curled his lips tauntingly. These men were really pitiful, willing to bend under others and debase themselves, even feeling that all of the men in the world were like them, willing to become a woman’s pet.
Ji Ting wasn’t aware of the confrontation between these two people at all. When she got to the princess mansion, she hiccuped as soon as she got off the carriage. Mu Yuzhi, who was waiting in front of the door, had a lot of danger in his eyes. “Yuzhi seems to have said to your Highness before, to not eat too many pastries.”
“Those were hungry hiccups.” Ji Ting said seriously.
Mu Yuzhi glanced at her, “Within a month from today, there is no need to prepare these things on her Highness’ horse carriage.”
“Yes.” The maid behind him immediately curtseyed.
Ji Ting glanced at him speechlessly, accepting her fate without arguing. He was basically her gold master*, what was the use of fighting with him?
Mu Yuzhi gave a chuckle, and his eyes fell on Shen Tuchuan behind her, “So this is the famous Master Shentu?”
“And this is the powerful Master Mu?” Shen Tuchuan said, with some ridicule in his tone.
Ji Ting instantly heard the spark between the two people and hurriedly pushed Mu Yuzhi towards the mansion. “You have waited for us for so long, you probably haven’t eaten yet. Hurry up, go and eat something.”
“No rush, first arrange a place for Young Master Shentu.”
“I’ll make the arrangements, you go eat.” Ji Ting looked at him, trying to get his favor. Behind her, Shen Tuchuan frowned.
The smile on Mu Yuzhi’s face faded a little, “Has your Royal Highness forgotten that you have promised me and asked me to make the arrangements for Young Master Shentu?”
Ji Ting grimaced. She thought in her heart that of course she didn’t forget, it’s just that she was afraid he would make things difficult for Shen Tuchuan, and in the end her favor would be turned into a grudge.
Mu Yuzhi saw through her thoughts and lightly chuckled, “Your Highness, don’t worry, I don’t intend to embarrass him. How about I arrange a courtyard towards the north for him?”
“The northern one?” Ji Ting was surprised. After all, that was the largest courtyard in the mansion. “Are you willing?”
“What is there to be reluctant about, I just don’t want him to be too close to me.” Mu Yuzhi uprightly said.
He lived in the southern courtyard. If Shen Tuchuan lived in the courtyard to the north, it really would be considered far away. When Ji Ting heard that he was only asking for this, she naturally agreed.
“Your Highness should go sleep for a while. Since you are not hungry, today’s lunch will be postponed by a shichen**.” Mu Yuzhi’s smile deepened.
Ji Ting originally had some worries. Turning her head, she saw the maid she had sent out a few days ago had come back, so she nodded and went towards her bedroom.
*gold master – slang for wealthy patron
**Shichen – an old measurement of time for the ancient Chinese. One shichen is equal to two hours.
