Yuan Che had just entered the hall, when he saw Mr. Butler walking around anxiously. There were also several maids and attendants in the corner with distressed faces. He asked suspiciously, “What’s wrong?”
Mr. Butler’s spirits lifted, and he rushed over in three steps, as he said with anxiety and concern, “Your Highness, you know that His Highness Yuan Xi and the Prince Consort have returned, correct?”
The corner of Yuan Che’s mouth curled up. “Know. Isn’t it a good thing?”
Mr. Butler rubbed his hands. “It certainly was a good thing. But, but…they seem to be fighting now.” The two hadn’t even eaten lunch yet.
After Yuan Xi and Luo XiaoLou entered their room, Mr. Butler immediately reported to everyone who should know about it, and then, started skulking around Yuan Xi’s room.
“You know, I definitely didn’t intend to eavesdrop, and to invade His Highness’ privacy, it’s just that the noise in their room was too much.” Mr. Butler said conservatively. In fact, he was already worried that Yuan Xi was committing domestic violence.
Yuan Che raised his eyebrows, and said with disbelief, “You said they got into a fight?” Could it be that Yuan Xi took someone back with all that fanfare just to fight? He wouldn’t do such a thing even if he was brainless.
“My father, what did he say?” Yuan Che asked again.
Mr. Butler wiped his sweaty forehead. “His Majesty Yuan Lie said to come over immediately.” It had been many years since a couple had a fight in the palace, so the seriousness of this matter was raised to an unprecedented level.
Yuan Che thought for a moment, then said, “I’ll go over and take a look first.”
The two of them had started arguing without even turning on the sound insulation mode, and the effect was intense.
Yuan Che turned back and saw Feng JiaLing coming from the end of the passage and said, “Mother, you are here too.”
Feng JiaLing nodded slightly, walked to Yuan Che’s side. He heard the movements inside, froze for a moment, and said, “See what’s going on with them.”
Yuan Che raised his hand to the door, and the light began to flash.
Five minutes later, Yuan Che had called for the door twice, and Feng JiaLing had begun to frown, when the door was opened roughly and abruptly.
An exasperated face appeared behind the door, and Yuan Xi said irritably, “Brother, what’s your emergency? Can’t you see I’m busy–” Yuan Xi’s voice stopped and he froze when he saw that the doorway was full of people.
Of course, not only Yuan Xi was frozen, but also Yuan Che, Mr. Butler and Feng JiaLing, who was closest to him. No matter what was going on inside, he was just looking at him calmly and with deep meaning.
Yuan Xi was undressed, his whole body still dripping with water and he only had a towel around his waist. Apparently he had just come out of the bathroom. The only thing that wasn’t normal was that his arms, chest, and even the visible portion of his thighs were covered with a stunning number of visible red scratches. Although only half of Yuan Xi’s body was exposed with the help of the door, Yuan Che’s sharp eyes still caught sight a white ball that was tucked under Yuan Xi’s arm as it struggled.
Yuan Xi stiffened for a moment, and asked in a slightly stilted tone, “Mother, are you and Brother here for something?”
Feng JiaLing faintly smiled at her youngest son and said, “No. We just came to remind you that there are some things that you should give us an account of as soon as possible. Besides, we know you are in good shape, but you still have to pay attention to your image.”
Yuan Xi’s face changed, and he finally nodded. “I will, Mother.”
Yuan Che left along with Feng JiaLing, but before he departed he said implicitly, “Yuan Xi, although with love, fun is important, but you still have to pay attention to proportion.”
Yuan Xi’s hand squeezing the door began to tighten, and he said with a black face, “I know.”
After Feng JiaLing and Yuan Che left, Mr. Butler ignored Yuan Xi’s murderous stare and kindly flanked him with statements about the bad effects of domestic violence. Yuan Xi finally exploded and yelled through clenched teeth before he flung the door shut. “I didn’t subject him to domestic violence!”
Mr. Butler looked at the slammed door, touched his nose and began to pray for the poor Prince Consort. He hoped that His Highness Yuan Xi would be merciful. If Luo XiaoLou really left, it would be too difficult to find such a suitable partner for His Highness again.
On the other side of the door, Yuan Xi’s face was extremely bad. A still writhing white mass was rudely carried under one arm, and after it added a few more claw marks to that arm, he finally restrained the animal with his hand. He shook it hard, before yelling in anger, “What are you doing tossing about in the shower?”
Damn, this wasn’t him causing domestic violence, this was definitely Luo XiaoLou’s unilateral atrocities against him! Look at these wounds, look at the beads of blood…He just wanted to be like before. What was this bastard trying to do to him with a midway change!
He had saved him, but he actually didn’t even intend to fulfill the obligations of husband and wife.
The more Yuan Xi thought about it, the angrier he became as he stared at Luo XiaoLou, who had honestly calmed down in his hands, and hung his head as he didn’t dare move. Finally Yuan Xi grunted coldly and headed for the bathroom again.
Because of anger and pain, Yuan Xi certainly no longer had any interest, but he didn’t deal with his wounds, just directly carried Luo XiaoLou into the bathtub.
After seeing Luo XiaoLou’s white, soft hair wet in the water, which gave him a wretched look, Yuan Xi suddenly felt better. The corners of his mouth curled up in a malicious smile as he took a scoop of the shower gel and said viciously, “This time no one will bother us, honey. You’re tired, so I’ll help you bathe.”
One hand easily caught Luo XiaoLou who intended to escape from the bathtub, then Yuan Xi began to rub body wash onto Luo XiaoLou and a mass of foam soon surrounded the small body that kept struggling. Finally, Yuan Xi took the hose and began to spray hot water all over Luo XiaoLou’s body.
“Tsk, you look like this. Are you really an exotic beast? Well, with all that wet hair, you’re even uglier.”
Yuan Xi laughed at Luo XiaoLou while he poured on the water.
Luo XiaoLou was so angry that his eyes were on fire, but there was nothing he could do with such a childish Yuan Xi.
When Yuan Xi had gotten enough of Luo XiaoLou’s wretched appearance. He released him without any warning as he was about to get a towel.
Luo XiaoLou, who was dropped without any support, nearly fell in the water.
He was in a spot now.
Yuan Xi saw the panic in the blue eyes, and was about to spit out two sarcastic sentences, but the hand was faster than the brain, and his reaction was to hold him.
Yuan Xi’s expression wasn’t very good. His mouth pursed tightly, as he got up and carried Luo XiaoLou out of the bathtub.
After having his hair aggressively blow dried, Luo XiaoLou was thrown onto the bed, and Yuan Xi got on the bed as well with a gloomy face.
