Today’s banquet if to compare to the princes’ birthday in the palace, it is even grander. It’s not a lie. Moreover, the skills of the cooks can be rated as one of the best. Even boiled cabbage can taste some other distinctive flavor. But due to the amount of people offering toast, Crown Prince didn’t manage to eat much, and drunk a lot of wine. If it wasn’t because he have good wine tolerance since he was young, perhaps today he will be dead drunk lying on the floor.
“Your Highness, ” Gu Ning followed behind the Crown Prince but the Prince waved his hand, motioned him to stop.
“No need to follow, Benwang going to do ‘big/small business’. All of you wait here.”
The inner hall was ‘bursting with festivities', a hubbub of laughter and talking, so the temperature comparing to outdoor was much higher. As the Crown Prince walked slowly along the corridor, the wind blew from the corridor pillars and immediately sobered him up.
“Help, help, help……..”
Prince did not like to always eat and drink and sit with a group of ‘actors’. After doing his ‘business’, he simply sat at the edge of the corridor to rest. Just that he can faintly hear someone crying for help.
Summoning Gu Ning over, he asked if he heard the cry. Gu Ning focused to listen, then nodded.
The Crown Prince gave a meaningful look at his personal bodyguards, Gu Ning and several guards instantly went to search the perimeter, looking for the source of the sound. Soon, they found themselves stopping in front of a locked door. Crown Prince went to the door and softly asked, “Is anyone there?”
Hope rose in Zhu WuXin’s heart, she increased her volume in crying for help.
Looking at Gu Ning, the Crown Prince said, “Open the door.”
The long sword in Gu Ning’s hand heavily strike down, and the lock fell off. The Crown Prince walked in and saw a shadow curled up in the corner.
Gu Ning took the lamp down from the eaves, illuminating the woodshed. Taking over the lamp from Gu Ning, YeLan walked over to the shadow. Then, he saw the face that he had only seen once before, a pair of eyes radiating with brilliant lights, painfully looking at him. Her expression was pale, looking extremely weak. This injured condition of hers is like a heavy blow, cruelly striking at the head of the Crown Prince. He threw away the lamp and rushed to hold her. The moment he touched her back, dampness can be felt through her clothes. He raised his hand out to check, it’s actually blood.
Crown Prince nearly roared to call Gu Ning, “Immediately bring the Imperial Doctor to me!”
 : 本王 – It’s how the men from the Imperial Family address themselves
 : 觥籌嘉措 – Not too sure with the exact meaning, I have tried my best ;D
