TCPCHW Chapter 25 Part 1

The Crown Prince Chases His Wife

Chapter 25          Arrogant (1/2)

When Xie Changyuan ran to the back of the boat, he saw that a man in black in the water had rescued A Yan and was swimming toward the decorated boat with her. Xie Changyuan breathed a sigh of relief. A Yan had saved his life, and he should have done his best to protect her. If something happened to her because of him, Xie Changyuan would be to blame.

When Xie Changyuan rushed over, he seemed to bump into Qin Yan who was standing on the edge of the boat.

Xie Changyuan turned his head and looked to the side. The two master and servant, Qin Yan and Shen Ying stood idly, their expressions as usual, and there was no slightest shame on their faces.

Originally, on the way out of the cabin, Xie Changyuan had a secret suspicion in his mind. Whether Qin Yan had a conflict with A Yan and pushed A Yan into the water because she was interested in him.

But seeing Qin Yan’s indifferent appearance at the moment, Xie Changyuan’s heart sank a little. She was really indifferent and had no empathy. Even if she was a peerless beauty, it was just skin with an empty shell.

Qin Yan’s left shoulder was bumped by Xie Changyuan just now, which was a little painful. She frowned slightly and looked back at Xie Changyuan.

The once-enviable unmarried couple, for various reasons, was now estranged. Even after today’s encounter, there would be another layer of estrangement between the two.

When they were young, although they didn’t interact much, they were quite harmonious.

Besides, there was that incident at the time.

A Yan in the water looked up at the side of the boat. Xie Changyuan and Qin Yan stood together, and the two really like a pair of well-matched people when they looked at each other.

A Yan’s heart was full of alarm, Qin Yan must not be allowed to have more contact with Brother Changyuan, and they must not be allowed to renew their affection again. Absolutely not.……


The man in black brought A Yan to the decorated boat and handed her over to Xie Changyuan.

Xie Changyuan thanked the man in black, “I don’t know your distinguished name and you have rescued my wife today. I’m very grateful to you. I will visit your home with a gift to thank you another day.”

The man in black didn’t say a word. After giving Xie Changyuan a fist salute, he walked over to Song Zhi who came out of the cabin and said something to Song Zhi in a low voice.

Song Zhi nodded when he heard the words, and looked at A Yan who was surrounded by Xie Changyuan with a strange expression. Then he turned around and entered the cabin again.

And the man in black who had just saved the life also left and went to another inconspicuous boat.

Everyone understood clearly that the man in black was the secret guard of His Highness Taizi.

A Yan fell into the water and the secret guard of His Highness Taizi went to save people in a blink of an eye. Was this Taizi’s last-minute plan or was it that Taizi had previously instructed the secret guard to protect A Yan?

Everyone had their own speculation again. His Highness Taizi was taught by Master Yishan, and Miss A Yan was also said to be a disciple of Master Yishan. It was no wonder that His Highness Taizi and Miss A Yan were brothers and sisters under the same master.

This A Yan was really lucky. Although her background was not prominent, she was married to the Shizi of Marquis of Yongding Mansion by the Emperor, and she was also the disciple of Master Yishan and the junior sister of His Highness Taizi. Now it seemed that His Highness Taizi also attached great importance to her and sent secret guards to protect her. This girl A Yan couldn’t be offended.

Just now Shizi Xie called Miss A Yan his wife, was she the tacitly recognize first wife?


At this moment, Second Prince Feng Xian and Princess of Jingyi Feng Yuyao also came out of the cabin and came to the back end of the boat.

Feng Yuyao walked to Qin Yan’s side, looked Qin Yan up and down, and asked worriedly, “Yanyan, are you okay?”

Hearing this, Xie Changyuan looked at Feng Yuyao coldly.

Was Feng Yuyao blind? It was A Yan who had an accident, did Qin Yan looks like something was wrong? What could happen to her?

Second Prince Feng Xian also asked Qin Yan with concern.

At this moment, a delicate female crying voice suddenly sounded.

“Brother Changyuan, I was so scared just now. I was so afraid that I would never see you again. Woo, woo, woo…”

A Yan sobbed softly as she spoke.

Because A Yan was rescued not long after she fell into the water, she just choked a few mouthfuls of water while struggling in the water, so she was only a little frightened, but she was still conscious. It was not big deal.

Xie Changyuan wrapped his arms around A Yan’s shoulders, and A Yan buried herself in Xie Changyuan’s arms and sobbed softly.

Xie Changyuan stroked A Yan’s back lightly, and coaxed the little girl in his arms softly, “A Yan be good. Brother Changyuan is here, don’t be afraid, don’t be afraid.”

Second Prince Feng Xian…

Qin Yan…

Shen Ying…

Feng Yuyao couldn’t help shivering with goosebumps all over.

That pair of a cheating couple! They had no shame in front of everyone!


A Yan’s drenched cotton dress was attached to her body, and the cool evening breeze blew through, making her shiver with cold.

Xie Changyuan was about to take off his coat and put it on A Yan.

The An family brothers and sisters also came out of the cabin, and An Yanxi asked the maid to pass the cloak that she took along to the decorated boat to Xie Changyuan.

“Shizi Xie, this is my cloak. If Miss A Yan doesn’t dislike it, she can put it on first, and not catch the wind chill.”

An Yanxi was well-mannered and kind-hearted, which was in stark contrast to Qin Yan’s indifference over there.

Qin Yan hadn’t said a word since A Yan fell into the water, which was really unfeeling.

After Xie Changyuan thanked An Yanxi, he wrapped the cloak around A Yan.

A Yan bowed to An Yanxi and said softly, “This little girl thanked Miss An.”

An Yanxi returned a gentle smile to A Yan, with a generous expression.


Seeing that A Yan’s mood had recovered a little, Xie Changyuan asked A Yan softly, “What happened just now?”

Qin Yan waited for A Yan’s answer.

Everyone was also waiting for A Yan’s answer.

A Yan glanced timidly in Qin Yan’s direction, then retracted into Xie Changyuan’s arms without speaking.

Xie Changyuan’s eyes were slightly cold, “A Yan, don’t be afraid. Just tell the truth.”

A Yan glanced at Qin Yan quickly again, with tears in her eyes, and said to Xie Changyuan, “Brother Changyuan, a boat suddenly ran over just now, and I didn’t stand firm. It’s my own fault. It’s none of Princess of Zhaoren’s business. Really, it’s my own fault.”

Everyone felt that Miss A Yan was lovable, kind, and tactful. She probably didn’t want to make Shizi Xie embarrassed, so she swallowed her grievance and kept explaining that this matter had nothing to do with the Princess of Zhaoren.

Qin Yan narrowed her eyes slightly, was that it?


The pleasure boat that had just run into them was also detained by the Second Prince’s people next to the decorated boat, and the young masters and young ladies on top were also restrained by the Second Prince’s people, all standing on the side of the boat.

As soon as A Yan’s words came out, a female voice on the pleasure boat muttered, “It’s obviously the girl A Yan was pushed by Princess of Zhaoren. I saw it all.”

“Yeah, I saw it too.”

“I also saw Miss A Yan who was pushed by Princess of Zhaoren, and then Miss A Yan fell into the water.”

“Miss A Yan is so pitiful that she dare not say it.”

With all the mouths full of gold, it seemed that it must be true that Qin Yan pushed A Yan into the water.

The people on the two boats looked at Qin Yan with a complicated looks.


“Brother Changyuan, don’t blame Princess of Zhaoren by all means. I’m too stupid that she didn’t hold me.”

A Yan, who shrank in Xie Changyuan’s arms, added weakly.

Didn’t hold her?

Everyone looked at Qin Yan, who was taller than ordinary women, and Shen Ying, a maid with excellent skills beside her, and then at the petite A Yan in Xie Changyuan’s arms.

Oh, who was not the clever one among the crowd, and it was not uncommon to use the rear courtyard methods.

Perhaps the accidental collision of the boat was true, but when the collision occurred, the Princess of Zhaoren took advantage to push A Yan into the water, which was probably also true.

This A Yan was really simple and kind. She almost lost her life and had to defend the Princess of Zhaoren.

Probably Princess of Zhaoren was jealous of Miss A Yan because Shizi Xie broke the marriage contract with her. She resented Miss A Yan and waited for a chance to revenge.

She was really petty and even more malicious.


An Yanxi said to Qin Yan with a serious look, “Princess of Zhaoren, if there is any misunderstanding, talk it out properly. How can you treat human life as child’s play?”

Qin Yan moved the left arm that had just been bumped by Xie Changyuan just now, and her phoenix eyes narrowed dangerously.

A Yan, the person concerned, didn’t say anything, but An Yanxi jumped out to convict her?

When Feng Yuyao heard this, she blew up, “Miss An, did you see Yanyan harm people’s lives with your own eyes? How can you make that conclusion?”

An Yanxi wanted to argue again but was stopped by An Wenjing.

An Wenjing shook his head at An Yanxi, motioning her to stop confronting Princess of Jingyi. Today’s matter had nothing to do with them, and there was no need to get involved to make the Princess of Jingyi and Princess of Zhaoren unhappy.

Interestingly, A Yan, who just said “it’s none of the Princess of Zhaoren’s business”, was now just shrinking in Xie Changyuan’s arms, and she hadn’t denied everyone’s suspicions and accusations against Qin Yan.

Xie Changyuan looked at A Yan who was shivering with cold in his arms and said coldly to Qin Yan, “You once fell into the water and almost died. Do as you would be done by others. I’m sorry to know that you have become so malicious now.”

Everyone looked at Qin Yan meaningfully. Shizi Xie was defending A Yan, but he didn’t leave any room for the Princess of Zhaoren, Qin Yan. This was to draw a clear line with the former fiancée, Princess of Zhaoren!

Shen Ying wanted to say something, but Qin Yan raised her hand, and Shen Ying stopped talking.

Qin Yan looked at Xie Changyuan and said indifferently, “Shizi Xie, it’s your people who fell into the water today. If you want to seek justice for your fiancée, please report to the County Chief and provide witnesses and evidence yourself. I, Qin Yan, will accompany you.”

“But please remember, if the final result is not what you said, then I will doubt whether you’re falsely framing me. Then, Marquis of Yongding Mansion must give me an explanation.”
