Chapter 86

Yun Zhi was hit so hard when he fell to the ground that couldn’t get up for a long time.

The entire private room fell silent.

Everyone was terrified by this unexpected turn of event and they were stunned for a moment.
Then they turned their heads in unison to look at the person who had just pulled Yun Zhi away—it turned out to be the woman in red sitting in the inner room playing and singing.

The woman in red was as beautiful as ever, with a thin red vel covering her face, only revealing a pair of beautiful eyes that was not full of anger.
She was standing with her feet spread apart, holding a pipa in one hand, standing  and her posture was very domineering.

When Wen Chi saw this, he really wanted to call out “Big Sister”.

The woman in red’s cold gaze swept over the quiet crowd in the room, then swept over the inexplicably guilty Wen Chi and finally fell on Yun Zhi, who was grimacing in pain.

“The guest has already said no, are you still going to force yourself on him?” The woman in red sneered, “WHo do you think you are?”

Ever since Yun Zhi became the number one here, who hasn’t held him in the palm of their hand? Even those who were jealous of him didn’t dare to say such words to him.
His eyes widened in shock, his white face crawling with irritated anger in an instant.

“Yue Xin, you are so brave, do you know who you are talking to?”

“Heh.” The woman in red didn’t take it seriously, “We’re all in the flesh business, since everyone is calling you the number one, do you really think you are so noble?”

“You…” Yun Zhi was so angry that his facial features were distorted.
He wanted to get up from the ground but the impact was too hard just now and no one came forward to help him up.

He struggled a few times and finally lay on the ground in a state of embarrassment.
He could only raise his head and stare at the woman in red angrily, “I want Xiu Niang to come, Xiu Niang will uphold justice for me!”

Xiu Niang is the head mistress here.

It’s a pity that Yun Zhi’s words that he thought were full of deterrence did not cause any waves in the heart of the woman in red.
Her eyes were calm and she seemed to want to laugh: “You can do whatever you want.”

After saying that, the woman in red raised her head and fixed her gaze on Wen Chi again.

Wen Chi met those familiar eyes and gradually guessed what was going on and felt even more guilty, He quickly cast his gaze away, deliberately avoiding the gaze of the woman in red.

Unexpectedly, the woman in red took a step forward.

The crowd led by Yue Zhicheng and Liu Wen stepped back at the same time as if they were frightened.

Originally, Wen Chi was standing with them but when they retreated like this, it was as if Wen Chi had taken a step forward on his own accord and was directly exposed in front of the woman in red.

Wen Chi looked around and wanted to back away, but unfortunately it was too late, the woman in red walked straight up to him.

“Young master.” The woman in red said softly, “Can you come out with this little girl?”

Wen Chi has a worried expression on its face.

The woman in red didn’t push him further, but just stared straight at him.

Wen Chi nodded helplessly.

The woman in red threw the pipa at Yue Zhicheng, who was caught off guard and let out a yelp as he hurriedly raised his hand to catch the falling pipa.
The woman in red turned and walked out of the private room without even looking at Yue Zhicheng.

Wen Chi cupped his fists to say goodbye to everyone and hurriedly followed.

The door to the private room was opened and closed again.

After the woman in red and Wen Chi left, only Yue Zhicheng, Liu Wen and others were left staring at each other.

Everyone was stunned for a long time and then they remembered Yun Zhi who was still lying on the ground crying, so they rushed forward to help him up.

Yun Zhi was so angry that his body was shaking, and his pretty face was blue with rage.
He was angry with Yue Xin and with the people who had paid him to do this and his red eyes were staring at them angrily.

Neither Yue Zhicheng nor Liu Wen expected that the gaffe would develop like this.
After hesitating for a while, Liu Wen was pushed out: “That…Yun Zhi…”

“You guys wait.” Yunzhi interrupted him sharply, “I’m going to call Xiu Niang!”

After Yun Zhi finished speaking, he turned his head and was about to go out.

But as soon as he reached the door, the door was pushed open from the outside, and the face of the Head mistress covered with heavy makeup came in from the outside, with an anxious expression on her face: “Where is that person?”

Yun Zhi was taken aback: “Which person?”

“The person who impersonated Yue Xin.” The Head Mistress walked into the private room, dragging a woman who was also wearing a red gauze dress behind her.
The woman was holding a pipa in her hand and the red veil in front of her face couldn’t stop the panic on her face .

Yun Zhi took one look at that person and felt a vague pain where he had been hit earlier.
He was about to complain to the Head Mistress when he coldly remembered her words, “Impersonated?”

Yue Xin took off the veil in front of her face and said in a crying voice: “I just went back to get the pipa, but someone covered my mouth and nose from behind and I didn’t know much about what happened afterwards…until someone woke me up.”

Yun Zhi hadn’t spoken yet but Liu Wen behind him uttered an exclamation: “What? You mean the woman who led Brother Wen out just now was an impostor?”

Yue Zhicheng also felt his legs go limp: “It’s over, Brother Wen won’t be silenced on his birthday, will he ……”

Liu Wen stretched out his hand to help Yue Zhicheng and said solemnly, “Let’s go back to the mansion and tell General Lin first.”


The other side.

Wen Chi followed the woman in red to the private room on the first floor.

This private room was larger, but also more dimly lit, with a layer of yellowish light in the air, so much so that the furnishings inside the room were a little hard to see.

The woman in red walked in front and when she reached the doorway, she abruptly took a step and raised her hand in a gesture of invitation to Wen Chi.

Wen Chi glanced at the woman in red, then walked inside.

After walking a few steps, I saw a familiar figure standing in front of a table.

Wen Chi narrowed his eyes and hesitated a little: “Eunuch Zhu?”

The man turned his head at the sound of his voice, and it was indeed Eunuch Zhu, but he was dressed in civilian clothes and wore a hat on his head, which was a bit different from his appearance in the palace.

It took Wen Chi a while to recognize Eunuch Zhu.

Eunuch Zhu said: “Young Master Wen, please sit down.”

Wen Chi obediently sat down at the table.

But Eunuch Zhu didn’t intend to sit down, but stepped forward, took out a neatly folded piece of paper and a small white porcelain bottle from his cuff, put them on the table and pushed them towards Wen Chi.

Wen Chi lowered his head, staring at these two things in surprise: “This is?”

Eunuch Zhu habitually tucked his hand away and said calmly, “The small porcelain vial contains the antidote, which Young Master Wen can take with warm water.”

Wen Chi thought for a while before remembering that Shi Ye made him eat a green poison pill before.

He always thought that Shi Ye was testing him and that the poison was just a gimmick to scare him but he didn’t expect that the green pill was really poison…

Wen Chi picked up the small white porcelain bottle and looked at it, then turned his gaze to the neatly folded paper on the side: “This is?”

Eunuch Zhu said: “This is something His Royal Highness ordered this servant to give to Young Master Wen.
Young Master Wen can open it after you return.”
