Chapter 25: Keeping Wang Ye Under House Arrest in the Inner Palace!
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Your Majesty, how can that be done, this is the Imperial Palace……” Ye Hongyi waved his hand and broke off Yao Suluan’s words, indulgently looking at Yao Mowan.

“Your Majesty, the Esteemed Prince is still waiting outside……” An Bingshan found a gap in the exchange and quietly reminded.

“A-hem…… invite the Esteemed Prince in.” Ye Hongyi gave a light cough. Only then did he let go of Yao Mowan’s slender waist, but still, unwilling to part, he took her delicate little hand and walked to the main seat. At the side, Yao Suluan suddenly had a feeling as if she was the embodiment of empty air. From the moment Ye Hongyi walked in, he hadn’t even spared her a single glance.

In a white robe as before, contrasted with that white colored garment Ye Junqing was elegant as a tranquil scholar. Like the clear clouds and the moon at daybreak, he dignifiedly stepped through the snow. Not a single strand of his ink black hair was out of place as it poured down in torrents, until it neatly arrived at his waist. His handsome facial features were as if the Heavens had thrown in all their care. Underneath his sculpted sword brows, that pair of refined eyes were cold as the river on a moonlit night, cold to the point it caused people to involuntarily tremble. Even so, that face still had unresistable demonic power, causing people to unfeelingly and unknowingly become intoxicated, incapable of freeing themselves.

Yao Mowan suddenly recalled something. She remembered that Junqing’s favorite color was azure blue, and the color he hated most was the color white, like that of a surrender flag. Once, he had explained, in his eyes, white simply was a symbol of death. Yet right now, his body was covered in white, what does that signify……

“This humble servant kowtows in salute to Your Majesty.” A clear and melodious voice like the sound of rain tapping on celadon pottery. Even though it completely lacked emotion, yet it still sounded beautiful, causing people to have an insatiable desire to hear more.

“Junqing ah. Even though you’re in the Imperial City, you always lock yourself in the Esteemed Prince Residence, causing zhen to hardly even have the chance to see you. This morning zhen has also proposed in the palace hall to have you move into the Imperial Palace so that it would also be easier for us brothers to get more familiar with each other again. After all, there’s only you and I left of the brothers in the Imperial City.” Ye Hongyi’s eyes were slightly gloomy as he spoke with seemingly heartfelt sincerity.

Based on normal standards, Ye Junqing had already drank a dozen pots of bestowed wine so he should already be bedridden by now. Yet today he’s still able to stand in front of him, perfectly all right. From that it could be assumed he had long discovered that there was something wrong with the wine; so in order to prevent Ye Junqing from making any little moves, Ye Hongyi decided he might as well keep him in the Imperial Palace. Under his own eyelid, he reckons Ye Junqing would not be able to try any tricks.

“Junqing obeys.” Not resisting, not refusing, even without any wasted words, Ye Junqing, indifferently spoke. Whereever was all the same to him. A world without Yao Moxin was simply monochrome.

“En, it’s just that for the time being the Imperial Palace doesn’t have any unoccupied palaces. Why don’t you stay in the east wing of Guan Osprey Palace. As for meals and such, just have them together with Yao fei!” The moment Ye Hongyi’s words fell, Yao Mowan was stunned for a moment. Immediately following that, she realized Ye Hongyi’s intentions.

He wanted to put Ye Junqing under house arrest in the Imperial Palace. The advantage, he could guard against Ye Junqing at all times; the detriment, for the sake of maintaining his clean image he wouldn’t be able to easily take Ye Junqing’s life. Yet he was also unwilling to stop his own plans, which is why he arranged for Ye Junqing to stay in an idiot concubine’s palace. Once it comes to it that he can’t let Ye Junqing stay any longer, he can find a pretext and behead Ye Junqing on the charge of seducing Yao fei. Afterall, a low IQ concubine couldn’t possibly know how to seduce men.

Yao Mowan suddenly really wanted to laugh. This is Ye Hongyi, selfish to the point it couldn’t be concealed. At this time, no matter how much he spoils here, in his bones, she was nothing more than a temporarily interesting plaything to him. As long as he needs it, at any time, like abandoning an outfit, he could send her to a grave.

“Your Majesty, I’m afraid this probably wouldn’t be very appropriate?” At the side, Yao Suluan was unbelievably stunned, she was practically envious to death. Seeing with her own eyes how Yao Mowan obtained His Majesty’s favor, now she could even interact day and night with Ye Junqing, the man that has always held the title of great Chu’s number one most beautiful man. To be able to have such great things, really don’t know how many lifetimes of good fortune she had built up. Yao Suluan almost blurted out, she’s an idiot ah!

“Could it be imperial gui fei has an even better plan than zhen?” Ye Hongyi slightly narrowed his eyes as he looked towards Yao Suluan, a faint cold penetrating through his voice. Hearing this, Yao Suluan’s throat choked up and she finally no longer spoke.

“Wan er ah, let the Esteemed Prince stay with you and accompany you to have meals, alright?” Ye Hongyi shot a cold glance at Yao Suluan. Turning his gaze towards Yao Mo Wan, his finger couldn’t help but brush across Yao Mowan’s dainty cheek. Yao Mowan’s foolishness was the same as Yao Moxin’s farsightedness, the entire world knew of it, so he didn’t need to be suspicious of it.

“Your Majesty sent for him to serve Wan er? Okay ah! But Wan er doesn’t want to live with him, the bed’s so small…… Wan er only wants to live together with Your Majesty!” Yao Mowan blinked her eyes and energetically nodded.

“Haha! Zhen’s little dumb melon ah! Alright! Zhen will bring you to take a look right now, exactly how small the bed in this Guan Osprey Palace is! All of you, withdraw!” Ye Hongyi’s scorching gaze undeviatingly fell on Yao Mowan’s snow-white jade neck. With a move of his large hands, he suddenly swept Yao Mowan off the ground and carried her in a princess hold, then walked towards the bedroom under everyone’s astonished gazes.

“Your Majesty……” Yao Suluan’s eyes were filled with secret bitterness, but she could only look on helplessly as Ye Hongyi carried an idiot off to celebrate while leaving her, this recently promoted imperial gui fei, to stand in the cold.

“Esteemed Prince, the east wing has already been tidied up. If you’re tired, you can go rest.” An Bingshan put on a fake smile as he walked to Ye Junqing’s side and deferentially bowed.

Silent, when Ye Junqing indifferently turned around, his pupils imperceptibly swept across the inner room. He had heard everything regarding Yao Mowan from Yao Moxin’s mouth several times, so he did not doubt Yao Mowan’s foolishness. But he really wanted to know who that Jing Xin that had once grinded ink for him was? In this world, could there really be two people that looked so identical?

On the couch, Yao Mowan was currently acting out an innocent-without-guilt role, allowing Ye Hongyi to nibble and bite her like a vicious wolf, venting his emotions. The two bodies accompanied each other like shadows into the night. Then again until dawn. Finally, Ye Hongyi got down from the bed, satisfied. He gently pinched Yao Mowan’s cheek before leaving with large steps.

After the sound of the footsteps grew faint, Yao Mowan collected up that act and laid languidly on the bed. A complicated expression grew and flickered in her simple eyes. Brought about by her own efforts, Ye Hongyi’s country was stable as a copper wall, firm as an iron bastion, it would not be easy to shake. This path would be heavy and long. And all she can do right now is act the role of a white ant and slowly gnaw through this giant skyscraping tree’s roots until it topples with a loud thump to the floor.

Thinking to here, Yao Mowan gave a light sigh. Dragging her exhausted body, she got down from the bed. Looking at the flower skirt that was torn into shreds by Ye Hongyi, she couldn’t help but give a cold sneer. Shortly after, she walked to the wardrobe and chose another bright and gaudy palace gown to put on, arranged her hair simply, then walked out of the bedroom.

Yao Mowan had just sat down when she saw Ting Yue walk in, carrying a kitten with snow-white fur.

Niang niang, this is the cat you wanted.” Ting Yue carried the cat with both hands and walked to Yao Mowan’s side with her head lowered, her voice a bit hoarse.

“Lift your head.” Yao Mowan’s gaze shifted from that kitten to Ting Yue’s face. Her pupils slightly turned cold: “You cried?” It would have been better had Yao Mowan not asked. With this question, Ting Yue could no longer hold back and let out a sob. Tears pitter-pattered onto the kitten’s body, causing the kitten to squirm about in Ting Yue’s arms and try to get out.

“What happened?” Yao Mowan’s facial color was grave as she looked at Ting Yue. After interacting with Ting Yue for this while, she understood that Ting Yue was someone that wouldn’t easily show their emotions.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Niang niang…… Liu Xing…… Liu Xing is outside the palace, currently awaiting niang niang’s summon……” Ting Yue choked back her sobs and replied. Her hands tightly held on the the kitten, afraid that it would run out.

“Liu Xing has also come? Why didn’t you bring him in? Hurry up and tell him to come in.” Yao Mowan suppressed the questions in her heart for the time being and mildly gave the order.

When she saw Liu Xing’s red-collared black eunuch uniform appear in her eyes, Yao Mowan finally understood why Ting Yue would cry. Even she was vexed to the point that tears filled her eyes.

As you can see, I’m changing the format of the names. I’ll be slowly going through and changing the previous chapters while also editing them a little for any mistakes I spot.
