Arc 4 Chapter 6 Part 2
Shen Jiayan was somewhat startled when he heard this, but this moment obviously wasn’t the right time to pursue this.
Shen Jiayan handed over the lotus lantern that he had carried all the way over here, placing it into Fan Yin’s arms, then he deceived him by saying, “Xiao Yin, these people came here to snatch away this lantern that I’m going to give you. Hold onto this lantern and hide in the boat right now. You can come out again when they leave, okay?”
Fan Yin held the lotus flower lantern with both of his cheeks blushing, he said with a mosquito-like voice, “Giving a lantern on the Flower God Festival means that you are expressing your love…… Rest assured, I will certainly protect this lantern. I won’t let anyone snatch it away.”
Shen Jiayan untied the ropes tying the fishing boat to the rock and smiled at Fan Yin, “Good, remember that you may not come back until all of the people leave.”
The moment Su Yun came in with the group, the scent left by them hadn’t dissipated yet.
Shen Jiayan’s clothes had a lot of creases and he was barefoot, his smooth and snow-white feet were visible as he hurried over. Because he ran in a hurry, the soles of his feet even had several cuts on them. He had an unnatural posture as he walked and his cheeks were still flushed. At a glance, it could be known what situation he was in just now.
Those unmarried girls directly covered their eyes and stomped their feet shyly, “What an embarrassing scene!”
Some aristocratic children looked at Shen Jiayan with disdainful eyes; and some, from time to time, peeked at the areas in which Shen Jiayan’s disorderly clothes didn’t cover, with faint interest on their faces.
Su Yun stepped forward and fiercely slapped both sides of Shen Jiayan’s face, causing Shen Jiayan to see stars and both of his cheeks to swell. Su Yun even had a grieving and lamenting expression on his face, “Second Brother, even though your biological mother passed away early, my mother has always treated you well and has taught you to have a sense of propriety, justice, integrity and honor. However, you actually did this kind of thing that corrupts the family principles! You really let me down!”
After hearing Su Yun’s words, the crowd suddenly realized the situation.
Ah, so he had a mother to give birth to him, but not one to teach him (manners). On top of that, he was the child of a concubine. No wonder he would commit such a shameless deed!
Shen Jiayan looked at Su Yun and slowly smiled. Even if his face was beaten like that, he still looked like an intimidating beauty, “Su Yun, if you had really lost hope in me, you wouldn’t have deliberately led all of these people to this place today.”
Su Yun once again slapped Shen Jiayan, “I just thought that you just had an unseemly fetish at home, so I would also indulge you. I didn’t expect you to come to the Palace in such a disorderly manner. I can’t protect you today, you must be handed over to His Majesty for punishment. If you honestly and narrate it in full detail, even if half of it would only be nonsense, you will not only hurt yourself but it would also implicate others.”
After Su Yun finished speaking, he vaguely glanced in the direction of the fishing boat.
Shen Jiayan immediately understood Su Yun’s hint. Su Yun was aware that there were two people in this cave. The fact that the other missing person was on the fishing boat, Sun Yun would have come to that conclusion as well.
Su Yun was openly warning Shen Jiayan in front of so many people right now——If Shen Jiayan dared to implicate him in front of His Majesty later, then he would reveal the fact that the other person was Fan Yin.
Blood spilled out from the corner of Shen Jiayan’s mouth, and his mouth was full of the taste of blood, “Su Yun, rest reassured, I’m not you.”
Su Yun sneered at Shen Jiayan and silently mouthed, “I’ve said it a long time ago, you can’t go against me.”
Turning his head, he showed the attitude of an ashamed good brother, “Second Brother got into this kind of trouble today, it’s all this Older Brother’s fault for not teaching you strictly. I made everyone laugh because I’m lacking. However, I, Su Yun, will never indulge him just because he’s my brother. I invite everyone to supervise me as I send him to His Majesty.”
Su Yun’s voice just fell, there were sounds of praise for him. They called out “placing righteousness before family”, “upright and plain spoken” and so on.
The group of people unceremoniously shoved Shen Jiayan and left the rockery. This type of filthy illicit sexual relations in the court was a great sin. If they could bring the person over, the Emperor may even record their meritorious deeds! With this in mind, they became more and more grateful towards Su Yun.
And for Su Yun, what he wanted were witnesses, witnesses that could put Shen Jiayan to death.
After everyone left, Fan Yin slowly docked the boat in accordance with Shen Jiayan’s words.
Fan Yin was holding a handful of lotus flowers in his hand, his eyes were filled with pure joy and his eyes were as clear as a mountain spring, “I didn’t find the lantern, but I found a lot of lotus flowers……”
Before Fan Yin could finish speaking, he saw the messy footprints in the rockery and Shen Jiayan’s shoes on the ground.
Those gray shoes had become dirty and lost their original shape from being stepped on. It was apparent that the owner of the shoes was forcibly taken away and he didn’t even have time to put on his shoes.
The lotus flowers in Fan Yin’s hand fell and scattered on the ground. He thought for a while before biting his lips and saying, “Xiao Yin cannot help you. Xiao Yin will tell that guy to go help you.”
As it turned out, Xiao Yin was also a coward like that guy. When encountering a matter that he couldn’t solve, he would throw it to the other person. But if that guy can save you, Xiao Yin is willing to be a coward.
