TCPCHW Chapter 26 Part 2
The Crown Prince Chases His Wife
Chapter 26 Injustice (2/2)
An Yanxi turned her head to her brother, An Wenjing, with a smile, “Oh, brother, this is the charm of power, ah. At last, I have seen it today.”
An Wenjing’s face changed, and he immediately scolded An Yanxi with a suppressed voice, “Yanxi!”
An Wenjing was very surprised, what happened to Yanxi today? She would not be so unreasonable usually. Moreover, it was the Second Prince who asked the question just now. No matter what the truth was and if Yanxi questioned the outcome, which meant she questioned the Second Prince.
Second Prince Feng Xian said in a bad tone with a cold face, “Is Miss An saying that this Prince is using power to oppress people?”
The An family brothers and sisters were shocked. The Grand Scholar Mansion was the Taizi’s faction and had no relationship with the Second Prince, or even with an antagonistic relationship, it had not been brought to the surface. It was extremely inappropriate to cause this situation today, which might cause trouble to their father and His Highness Taizi, and even the Emperor would not like it.
An Yanxi regretted her unyielding words just now, but Qin Yan really made her feel threatened, which caused her to become agitated.
At this time, Feng Yunchao came out, “Second Imperial Brother, it’s all a misunderstanding.”
When the young masters and young ladies on Qin Nian’s boat saw Princess of Changle Feng Yunchao, they were even more afraid. Fortunately, nothing happened when the two boats collided. This first princess was someone that His Highness Taizi highly values. They didn’t read the almanac when they went out today. At this moment, they all resented Qin Nian who invited them to tour the lake. They couldn’t afford to offend anyone on the decorated boat over there.
In the cabin just now, after the brother and sister of the An family went out, Song Zhi did not avoid Feng Yunchao when he reported to Taizi Feng Zhan what the secret guard had seen of A Yan falling into the water. Therefore, Feng Yunchao knew the truth about the whole thing.
Feng Yunchao also listened to the conversation outside. She sighed that Qin Yan at this time seemed to be like her imperial mother back then. All mouths were full of gold, and there was no way to justify it. Her imperial mother could only escape the conspiracies in the palace and trapped herself in Dajue Temple for many years.
At this moment, when the evening wind picked up, Shen Ying took out the cloak and put it on Qin Yan.
Qin Yan tightened the cloak on her body and frowned, she didn’t want to stay here any longer.
Feng Yunchao glanced at Qin Yan who seemed impatient, and said, “Today, this is a misunderstanding. According to the report of Imperial Brother Taizi’s secret guard, A Yan leaned back out of the boat because the two boats collided. Princess of Zhaoren stretched out her hand to save A Yan, but before she could touch her, A Yan has already fallen into the water.”
“You won’t still want to question what Imperial Brother Taizi’s secret guard said, right?”
Feng Yuyao looked around at the people on the scene, and everyone bowed their heads and said nothing. Who would dare to question His Highness Taizi’s secret guard? There was no reason for His Highness Taizi to cover up for the Princess of Zhaoren.
Second Prince Feng Xian said to Qin Yan, “Princess of Zhaoren, I have believed in you from beginning to end.”
Feng Yunchao took An Yanxi’s hand and comforted her, “Yanxi didn’t know about it, so she said a few more words.”
An Yanxi was a little embarrassed and disappointed. She thought that Qin Yan would not be able to clean this matter regardless of the facts. Today, she even used the rear courtyard methods that she usually disdained, but she never thought that Feng Yunchao would actually speak for Qin Yan.
Her previous judgment was correct, Qin Yan was indeed a threat.
The Second Prince asked the pleasure boat, “Why did your boat crash over?”
The boatman was pushed out by the Second Prince’s people. When he saw the prince and princesses on the opposite side, the boatman did not dare to hide it. He immediately knelt down and pointed at Du Ling in the crowd and said, “Every noble, please spare my life. It’s that young lady who tells me to crash into it.”
A few steps behind Du Ling was Qin Nian who was hiding behind the crowd.
Qin Nian was her backbone, but Du Ling couldn’t bear to look back. She had already offended the Second Prince and Princess of Zhaoren, and she couldn’t implicate Qin Nian. Otherwise, there would be no one to plead for her.
“It was me. It was me who was playful. I wanted to scare the two girls at the back of the decorated boat. But I didn’t recognize that they were Princess of Zhaoren and Shizi Xie’s fiancée. I also didn’t know that there were Second Prince and two princesses on the boat. I didn’t mean it.”
Oh, that meant, if they weren’t nobles, she could play with human life?
Besides, in the Qianshui Lake today, the Second Prince’s decorated boat was the largest and most luxurious, and even fools knew that there were many nobles on top who couldn’t be afforded to offend. This reason…
Taizi Feng Zhan was already very impatient with today’s farce. He went out of the cabin and prepared to leave.
Among the young masters and young ladies on the pleasure boat, some had seen the Taizi from a distance and wanted to cry but had no tears. Today was a crime day!
There were two princes and two princesses on the decorated boat, which was enough to choke them. Unexpectedly, there was a powerful Taizi who supervised the country, and even their fathers and brothers had to survive under Taizi’s hands. How could they be excused?
They were so frightened that their legs went soft and knelt down to salute the Taizi.
Today’s Feng Zhan was dressed in a black brocade robe embroidered with gold thread, a jade crown on his head, and his face was still as cold as ever.
He walked steadily on the slightly rocking deck and stopped five steps away from Qin Yan.
Qin Yan raised her eyes to meet Feng Zhan’s deep black eyes.
Feng Zhan fixed his eyes on the delicate face of Qin Yan, who seemed didn’t care, in front of him.
Feng Zhan’s tone was slightly lower, “Isn’t your secret guard also watching? If my secret guard doesn’t say anything, are you going to just bear the reputation of being vicious?”
Would anyone believe what her secret guard says?
Taizi Feng Zhan looked at Princess of Zhaoren’s expression with a look of displeasure, but his words also confirmed what Princess of Changle Feng Yunchao had just said. Princess of Zhaoren Qin Yan was indeed wronged.
