Chapter 18 – And How Are You Going to Scold This Prince?
Nan Yan looked at him muddleheaded, and thought she was dreaming. After a long time she mumbled: “Your Highness……. Yan Wang?”
“Exactly, it is the Prince.”
Both of them looked at each other for quite a while, both not saying a word. Xie Zheng then walked in and said:
”Prince, this issue, let this ‘little one’ take care of it.”
Zhu Feng looked at Nan Yan again, then stood up and walked to the side chair.
Nan Yan leaned against the head of the bed, turned to look up. At this time, Xie Zheng sat in front of the bed laughing while he said:
“This young lady looks very hungry. Eat first, afterwards you can speak.”
He was very young and had a handsome face. Especially when he laughed, his eyes were curved, giving her a gentle and affectionate feeling even a stranger could feel well, it couldn’t be helped since his smile was that attractive.
Nan Yan took a glimpse at him, then lowered her head and looked at the bowl of porridge in his hands.
Xie Zheng felt that she was still somewhat embarrassed, so he tried feeding her with care. When Nan Yan opened her mouth and took a sip, she immediately started coughing.
Cough, cough, cough, cough!
At this moment, there was pain inside her abdomen, like a knife was twisting around and the taste of the porridge stimulated her entire body to get up.
Xie Zheng patted her back so her body didn’t fall and said: “It’ll become better.”
Nan Yan did not speak and only looked up, her eyes red from coughing and her expression telling that she was hungry and thirsty.
Seeing that the girl was really hungry, Xie Zheng hurried to feed her more porridge.
After eating half of the porridge, Nan Yan finally felt sober.
Xie Zheng passed her a handkerchief to wipe her mouth, then he carried the bowl and went outside. Nan Yan wiped the corners of her mouth and looked up again. She found Zhu Feng sitting on a chair, his gaze remaining the same and his eyes still cold, looking at her.
She laid down on her knees and softly spoke: “ Many thanks to His Highness Yan Wang.”
Zhu Feng coldly spoke: “Now after thanking this Prince, how do you intend to pay it ?”
Nan Yan was stupefied. Before, at the sleeping quarters of the Emperor, she had thanked him many times for rescuing her. Those words she said to him outside the Palace was also because of him wantonly slaughtering people.
He was definitely looking for trouble!
Nan Yan subconsciously tightened the thin cloak Xie Zheng had pulled over her and said softly: ”Nan Yan doesn’t deserve such praise.”
”Not daring to, does not mean that you do not think so in your heart, right?”
Zhu Feng stood up from the chair, and slowly walked to the bed, before looking down at her: “In your heart, you still feel that you are right, don’t you?”
“Is it not?”
Listening to her voice closely, Zhu Feng couldn’t help but look back at Xie Zheng standing beside the bowl on the table. He looked at the little girl who was unconscious just a while ago. At present, she was curled up on the bedside, looking weak and incompetent, under the pressure of Zhu Feng. Like a little rabbit under the paw of the tiger, he could tear her up with a little effort, but she kept saying nothing.
Looking at her pitiful look, Xie Zheng also felt that the situation was unbearable. He hurriedly put down the bowl and was about to change the subject when the little girl’s head bowed and her little, indescribable voice whispered: “His Royal Highness thinks that I am wrong?”
Zhu Feng brows suddenly knitted.
