After Being Kidnapped by the Crown Prince - Chapter 63
~End of chapter 62
It was rumored that even the doors and windows had been sealed.
The servants couldn’t clearly guess the crown prince’s intentions, but perhaps that miss had committed some kind of big mistake and that was the reason why she was put under surveillance by the crown prince.
When Liu momo heard that Ming Zhu had been sent to the crown prince’s residence, she was surprised and also a little furious. She was just a cheap slave who relied on her beauty to rise to the top, could it be that she had really flown up to the top branch?
She originally wanted to do the same as before, run in front of Ming Zhu’s face to give her a few warnings, to slay her moment of prestige, so as to not let her get too ahead of herself.
But these days she couldn’t even get past the door, according to her status, she was someone who could say a few words in front of the crown prince, but the guards outside the courtyard didn’t even give her any face, “His Highness has ordered that no one is allowed to enter without his permission.”
Liu momo could only leave. On the way, she heard that the crown prince had spent the night in her room five times in a row and she cursed Ming Zhu secretly again, for using her beauty to mislead people.
In all those years, had His Highness ever acted so unrestrained when it came to a woman?
Ming Zhu’s days, however, were not as good as they all thought it was. Zhao Zhi did not lie to her, it could be said that she was being locked up.
The windows and the door, she could not open any of them.
The new maidservant who was serving her was like a mute, not saying a word to her.
Ming Zhu was a bit overwhelmed, she lived these past few days in a confused state, as the strong fragrance lingering after lovemaking filled the entire room.
Ming Zhu put on her clothes and sighed.
It’s not that she couldn’t give in. People, when being at the mercy of others could only bow down their head, but she wasn’t willing.
Next time, she can only succeed, she can not fail.
Otherwise, if she angered Zhao Zhi and made him lose patience, she feared that he would really want to break her legs, to put an end to this matter.
Ming Zhu was still too soft and immature compared to him, running away was useless, the only way to escape and disappear was to fake her death.
Ming Zhu was about to die of frustration.
In the evening, after Zhao Zhi was done with his business, he came over to her again to have a meal with her. Suddenly opening his mouth, he said, “Wei Chiyu is about to get engaged.”
Seeing the change in her complexion, Zhao Zhi felt very uncomfortable in his heart. She indeed still couldn’t forget her old lover.
Zhao Zhi’s knuckles turned white from clenching them too hard, “Are you that sad?”
In a small voice, Ming Zhu said, “I’m not.”
Zhao Zhi’s heart didn’t feel good, a backlash sting drilled into his heart, one needle after the other, so densely packed that they were impossible to ignore.
Ming Zhu these days seemed to be have resigned herself to her fate, but Zhao Zhi didn’t feel much joy. She was now like a string puppet that had lost its soul, she wasn’t happy.
Ming Zhu and Zhao Zhi just spent their time like this, no one willing to easily bow down their head.
As for the crown prince, his mood had been cloudy for all this half-month period of time, the ministers were all holding their tail between their legs, not daring to provoke his anger during this period of time.
Sheng Wenlin refused, “What would you do going with us ? Do you think the crown prince will still pay attention to you?”
She still couldn’t get over her anger from having their engagement broken.
Sheng Wenlin paused for two seconds, “If you’re angry, vent that anger on the crown prince.”
Sheng Ling huffed and puffed before she closed her mouth.
Sheng Wenlin waved his hand to drive her back inside her room.
There were a lot of people inside the restaurant, the private rooms upstairs were much quieter in comparison.
Sheng Wenlin poured a cup of warm wine for the man across the table and, as if he didn’t care, he asked, “Did you get your little runaway beauty back?”
Zhao Zhi picked up his cup of wine and drank it all in one go, “Hmm.”
Sheng Wenlin carefully watched his countenance, before asking, “Why did she try to run away?”
Sheng Wenlin smiled slightly, his tone was casual, “Your Highness should not spoil her, give her the cold shoulder for a bit and she’ll be good.”
Zhao Zhi swept him a glance, “You don’t understand.”
Sheng Wenlin was a bit resentful, to be truthful, he really felt a bit regretful of having told her whereabouts to Wei Liu that day, if the twisted side in his heart had been a bit stronger, he would have concealed her from everyone and would have hidden her himself.
“Your Highness, don’t you know that many women’s desires are higher than the sky ? They have endless tricks to play on people’s hearts.” Sheng Wenlin went on, “Perhaps she heard the news that you were about to get married and, feeling dissatisfied in her heart, wanted to take a gamble.”
Zhao Zhi frowned, as if he was thinking hard about what the words he just said.
