Chapter 51: You’re Going To Beat Them to Death (1)
“Let me go!” Cheng Shizhao reprimanded Zhou Xiaoxiao in a low voice.
Zhou Xiaoxiao hesitated.
Would he behead me as soon as I let go of him?
“Quickly let me go! I won’t bicker with you about it for now, unless you really want to let Xingzhi see us like this?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao immediately cut the rope off of him and Cheng Shizhao leaned against the edge of the bed, using it as support to stand up.
While he was putting on his robe, the door was kicked open with a bang and Yu Xingzhi walked in with a solemn face.
The room was a mess and the table was turned over on the ground, while Cheng Shizhao and Zhou Xiaoxiao’s clothes were disheveled. They both looked at Yu Xingzhi in shock while the latter’s veins were bursting at the sight. His eyes were red and stormy.
He dragged Cheng Shizhao over and punched him.
The Ninth Prince, Cheng Shiqi, who came right after Yu Xingzhi hugged him tightly from behind and said, “You can’t hit him. You can’t hit him.”
Yu Xingzhi kicked him and said, “You’re just allowing him to do dirty and vile things to Xiaoxiao by hindering me!”
“Hit me. I’m letting you hit me. Nine, don’t stop him!” Cheng Shizhao said in a weird tone, “You had never laid a hand on me since you were a child, so I’ll grant you your wish today!”
“You!” Yu Xingzhi angrily hollered.
From the side, a pair of white and smooth hands grabbed his wrist.
Although the hands were small and delicate, it had a lot of strength.
“Don’t hit him. I had already hit him and if you continue, he’s going to be beaten to death.” Zhou Xiaoxiao said.
Yu Xingzhi turned around and stared at Zhou Xiaoxiao with red eyes.
“Look at me. I’m fine.” Zhou Xiaoxiao reached over and gently patted Yu Xingzhi’s back and continued, “Look, nothing happened to me.”
She extended her arms and spun in a circle.
Yu Xingzhi blinked his eyes and finally noticed what was wrong.
Zhou Xiaoxiao’s clothes were neat and tidy; she was easygoing and only her hair was a bit messy. On the other hand, Cheng Shizhao’s hair was scattered around his shoulders and he sported bruises on his face. Not only that, the corner of his lips were bleeding and his clothes were disheveled, a bit embarrassed.
The guards of the residence who followed in gasped and they all took out their swords, pointing it at Zhou Xiaoxiao.
Cheng Shizhao’s face turned white and then red, unusually embarrassed. He was extremely angry after hearing that Yu Xingzhi had to endure cruel torture for him, but also because he couldn’t protect himself against a woman.
He angrily hollered, “Stop. Don’t you guys think you guys are losing enough face already? Leave with me!”
After that, Cheng Shizhao left with his personal guard, Guo Suren’s help, limping out.
The guards all looked at each other and placed their swords away in confusion, following out.
Guo Suren knew that it wouldn’t end well. He recalled the scene he barged into and realized that the Prince must’ve been ‘bullied’ at that time. Yet, he thought it was the Prince’s weird kink.
It would be fine if he didn’t see that happen, but he did and he didn’t even go and save the Prince. If the latter remembers, what should he do if the Prince decides to settle accounts with him?
The room quieted as people left.
Yu Xingzhi’s companion, Yu Tong, peeked out from behind and carefully asked, “My great aunt ah. You really gave Prince Yan a beating?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao’s gaze flickered and said, “Um…I had already beaten him. So what can I do now? Should I start packing my things and get ready to run off?”
Yu Xingzhi’s eyes were bloodshot and he stared at Zhou Xiaoxiao, gently patting her head. He finally couldn’t help but hug her in his arms.
He said in a hoarse voice, “Sorry, it’s all my fault that you had to endure these hardships.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao felt something wrong and she asked, “Xingzhi, why is your body so warm?”
Then he slowly fell on the ground, but Zhou Xiaoxiao caught him in time. She touched his burning forehead and glanced at his flushed face.
Zhou Xiaoxiao hurriedly supported him, asking Yu Xingzhi’s personal guard, Yu Tong, “What’s the matter? Why did he get sick all of a sudden?”
