“Sshhh, don’t scream. You have already seen me, why still scream like a ghost?”
The Crown Prince covered Zhu WuXin’s mouth, nervously dragged her a few meters away from the door.
“If you screamed again, you and I won’t live tonight.”
With that, he didn’t care how pale-white her face was from the fright, and reluctantly ran back towards his residence, dragging her along.
Finally upon reaching a dimly lit, heavily guarded place, she released (her hold of) him.
Then, stooped forward to support on her leg to breathe.
“What were you doing ah? Would you be uncomfortable if you don’t scare someone to death?” Zhu WuXin snappily complained while taking large breaths.
“If I don’t have bigger guts, the one you are looking at will be a ghost!”
Hearing her words, the Crown Prince’s face was obviously not looking good, “That place is forbidden ground, who told you to run there. Have I not arrived in time, you will also be a ghost!”
From what he said, Zhu WuXin concluded that the person being locked inside must have problem.
Thinking of what kind a person the Crown Prince is, with the exception of the old man Emperor, he has the highest position in the whole Palace.
To be able to make him so nervous in this way, the identity of the person inside must be extraordinary.
Upholding the virtues of ‘shamelessly inquiring', Zhu WuXin brazen-faced whispered quietly at him, “What kind of person was locked inside there?”
The Crown Prince has finally relaxed his face’s expression with much difficulties, but with one question from her, his eyes turned icy cold.
He took a deep breath, then hold Zhu WuXin’s shoulder and seriously looked into her eyes, “WuXin, you need to remember this.”
“In this Palace, there are a lot of secrets. Some secrets, you can ask. But some other secrets, the moment you asked will likely provoke a fatal disaster.”
“So, you have to shut your mouth! Do you understand?”
Other than when he was reading official documents, Zhu WuXin has never seen Ning YeLan with such serious face before.
Since he has said so, it won’t be good for her to continue asking questions.
She can only slightly nod, “I understand. I won’t ask anymore.”
The Crown Prince released a long sigh, his face resumed his usual frivolous smile, “This is what’s right.”
“Ye, that’s not right ah.”
Zhu WuXin thought for a while, “Aren’t you celebrating in the main hall, how did you managed to know where I was?”
He gave a meaningful smile, “Because I put my eyes on your body.”
The Crown Prince thought of continuing his next sentence with a smile but looking at Zhu WuXin, the words at the corner of his mouth turned to, “What are you looking for?”
Zhu WuXin was holding her arms, rubbing up and down to create friction and turning around at the place, “My goose bumps fell on the ground, I must immediately pick them back!”
Hearing what she has said, the Crown Prince grabbed her like a burst of wind, keep pinching her face.
“Ah, WuXin, you are really too cute and too fun!”
“Ah, Heavens, just give me a hammer!”
