After Being Kidnapped by the Crown Prince - Chapter 100
Back to the crown prince’s residence, the smell of blood coming from the dungeon still seemed to be sticking on his clothes, one could smell its foul odor at close. After having dealt with the person who was an eyesore to him, he didn’t feel much gratification in his heart, there was still an indescribable frustration that was stuffing his chest.
Zhao Zhi came unexpectedly, the maidservants didn’t have the time to report his arrival to Ming Zhu who was inside the room.
She was sitting by the window, holding a dark pill in her hand. This was the contraceptive pill that she had bought the last she went out. The only problem was that the medicine was of a very vicious nature, it wasn’t suitable to ingest a lot of it.
She really couldn’t find any opportunity to go to the kitchen to cook the medicine, thus she could only take the contraceptive pill as it was.
Just when she had finished taking the pill, Zhao Zhi pushed the door open and entered.
Ming Zhu’s heart almost jumped out of her chest. Reacting extremely quickly, she held the little bottle of medicine firmly in her palm and hid it in her sleeve, before getting up to greet him, with her voice shaking a little, “Your Highness, you’re back.”
Zhao Zhi, without saying a word, looked at her. Her cheeks were round and her skin was translucent, she looked like a plump peach full of fragrance. His heart suddenly felt at peace for a moment. The middle of his eyebrows were no longer as heavy with hostility as the moment he came out of the dungeon.
In the end, he still minded about the fact that Ming Zhu and Wei Chiyu had a past connection that still wasn’t completely severed.
For no reason, he was venting his anger on Wei Chiyu, blaming him for the fact that Ming Zhu didn’t love him, as if as long as this person disappeared, he could get Ming Zhu’s love.
Zhao Zhi didn’t want Ming Zhu to be afraid of him, he was indeed a very scheming, ruthless, merciless and cold person, but she couldn’t be afraid of him as other people were.
Zhao Zhi swallowed his saliva and walked slowly towards her, without noticing Ming Zhu’s nervousness, “Mmh.”
No one could see that Zhao Zhi’s heart at this time was somewhat fragile, only the corners of his eyes, colored by a crimson color, revealed a little of his emotions.
He suddenly had the urge to hug her, but he held back.
The high self-esteem engraved in his bones made him unable to ask the question “why don’t you love me ?”
He clearly knew that she was still unwilling in her heart, yet Zhao Zhi only pretended not to see it.
Everyone said he was favoring her too much, so much so that he was crossing the line.
“What are you doing?”
Ming Zhu calmed down her heart and smiled lightly, “I just finished making the birthday gift for the princess.”
Zhao Zhi smiled without emotion. She spent so much effort on Zhao Xin, whom she had only met a few times, yet she couldn’t remember his birthday.
He sat down, absent-mindedly playing with the Buddhist beads in his hand, “Bring it out to show me.”
Ming Zhu took a deep breath, “Okay.”
She took this opportunity to throw the medicine bottle in her sleeve into the drawer, she did so very quickly, without revealing any flaw.
She made Zhao Xin a flowering tree-shaped golden dangling hairpin (buyao), with vivid gold leaves and distinct leaves veins, inlaid with round green stone beads on both sides. The buyao was so delicate and vivid that it could only have been made by the hand of a skilled craftsman.
She carefully placed it in front of him and said in an uncertain tone, “The princess should like it, right ?”
Young girls would always be unable to resist beautiful things. Anyway, she liked it, if the princess didn’t want it, she would just keep it for herself.
Zhao Zhi swept two glances on it, before saying, “She has seen all type of good things already.”
Although he used a bland tone to say the truth, which did not have any depreciating intention, but hearing these words, Ming Zhu felt a stab of pain in her heart. Her face turned white, she didn’t argue with Zhao Zhi, she would speak less with him if she could.
“Mmh, I know.” Ming Zhu explained, “I just think it’s more sincere to make something with my own hands.”
Zhao Zhi’s expression became even more downcast instead, he frowned, deep in thought, one didn’t know what he was thinking.
He couldn’t help but want to sneer, Zhao Xin was really good at obtaining her favor, getting her to simply give out her sincerity in such a short amount of time.
“She has more phoenix buyao than she can fit in her trousseau box.” Zhao Zhi himself didn’t know how he could even be jealous of his sister. He said, “She doesn’t lack gifts, you might as well not give her anything.”
Ming Zhu turned silent. She silently held the buyao in her palm and, lowering her eyelashes, her face was pale and stiff as she went along with him, “Mmh, you’re right.”
These few straightforward words of his still slightly managed to hurt her heart.
As if the things she made with her own hands were worthless and not qualified to be gifted.
But Ming Zhu very soon thought things through, there was nothing to be sad about, he was just like that, he would not put her on an equal footing, treating her no differently than a plaything.
Ming Zhu intended to give the princess the buyao behind Zhao Zhi’s back.
Zhao Zhi also felt bad inside, he held both of her hands, “If you really want to gift her something as a token of your sincerity, just pick something from my treasury.”
Ming Zhu immediately responded, “No need.”
Zhao Xin’s face did not look good, “She has always wanted the precious blue coral stored in my treasury, you bring it to her on the day we go to the palace.”
Zhao Xin had been tiresomely begging and pestering him for it for a long time, Zhao Zhi was usually generous, but he had always been unwilling to give her this precious blue coral.
Ming Zhu didn’t have any thought: “Oh.”
