TCPCHW Chapter 42 Part 1

The Crown Prince Chases His Wife

Chapter 42          Carriage (1/2)

Song Zhi …

His Highness said this, at least he had to hide it from the other master…

Qin Yan raised her eyebrows, but before Qin Yan could speak, another male voice spoke first.

“Qin Yan is an unmarried woman, and what Your Highness Taizi said is probably not appropriate.”

Xie Changyuan quickly walked two steps forward.

At this moment, Xie Changyuan was glad that he rushed here today. He had guessed it right, Taizi must have an interest in Qin Yan.

“Song Zhi.” Feng Zhan said in a deep voice.

“I’ll do it now.”

Song Zhi responded and left, casting an awkward glance at Qin Yan before leaving.

Song Zhi slandered in his heart, but the Princess of Zhaoren didn’t get angry which was really cultured.

Feng Zhan toned down his voice and said to Qin Yan: “You go up first.”

Qin Yan didn’t want to draw a distinction between Feng Zhan at this time. Since she agreed to try with him, she wouldn’t mind the trivial matter of sharing a carriage.

At this time, the night had already been filled with fog, and the mountain was getting colder. Qin Yan stretched out her hands to tighten the cloak and turned around to get into the carriage.


Feng Zhan watched Qin Yan enter the carriage, then turned around and looked at Xie Changyuan coldly.

Xie Changyuan’s gaze also followed Qin Yan’s figure.

Qin Yan had always been like this, won’t even look at him.

He could still understand that Qin Yan was still angry with him, was she waiting for him to coax her by showing her temper?

But Xie Changyuan couldn’t even convince himself for this reason.

Qin Yan really didn’t seem to care about him at all. Thinking of this, Xie Changyuan’s heart became colder and colder.

Xie Changyuan looked at the Taizi opposite him. Feng Zhan was slightly taller than Xie Changyuan, and Taizi’s imposing aura made Xie Changyuan feel a sense of oppression for no reason.

At this moment, Xie Changyuan no longer cared that he was just a subject, and he didn’t want to be crushed by another man in front of the woman he liked.

However, Feng Zhan’s words hit Xie Changyuan’s newly established line of defense in the shortest possible time.

“Back then, when you already had a fiancée, you brought a woman without name or distinction into the mansion and lived there for three years. Have you thought it was appropriate?”

Xie Changyuan was slightly surprised, he didn’t expect the Taizi to question his personal affairs.

For three years, he hadn’t explained his past with A Yan to anyone, and the people in the mansion only know that A Yan saved him, but everyone thinks that A Yan was his beloved woman.

He never explained it before, let alone explain it to Qin Yan.

Xie Changyuan glanced at the carriage in front of him.

Qin Yan should also be able to hear the conversation between him and the Taizi at this moment, so he took this opportunity to explain this matter clearly.

“A Yan saved me, and I owe her a life.”

Xie Changyuan spoke as he looked at the carriage beside him.

Feng Zhan said coldly: “Is that you can’t afford a decent residence and give it to your savior with the property left to you by Imperial Aunt Anyang?”

“In the past few years in the capital, the rumors about you and the canary* you raised have been widely known. Have you ever considered the position of your fiancée at that time? Where do you put the face of the Right Prime Minister Mansion and the Duke of Zhenguo Mansion?”

(canary* – a metaphor used to refer to women who are attached to men and lead a good material life but are bound and lose their freedom because of this.)

Mentioning the word fiancée, Feng Zhan looked unhappy.

No matter in the past, present, or future, Feng Zhan didn’t want Qin Yan to have anything to do with other men.

“…” Xie Changyuan was dumbfounded.

In Meishan back then, A Yan said that both her parents had died, and she had no one to rely on, and she said that she would follow Xie Changyuan back to the capital.

When he arrived in the capital, Xie Changyuan also told Ah Yan that he would buy her a house.

But A Yan refused.

A Yan said that she was a woman who only knew Xie Changyuan in the capital. She was lonely and wanted to follow Xie Changyuan home.

And why didn’t Xie Changyuan stick to his original idea?

It seemed that he had a grudge against Qin Yan at that time because of Xie Zhao’s incident.

Therefore, Ah Yan was not rejected in the end.


“As a responsible man, since you have done it, then admit it.” Feng Zhan’s words were undeniably strong that couldn’t be refuted.

After speaking, Feng Zhan turned around and got into Qin Yan’s carriage.

Leaving Xie Changyuan standing on the spot.

Xie Changyuan was so powerless to even explain, even if it was because of a misunderstanding, it had already caused an irreversible fact.

Qin Yan probably had no room for a grain of sand in her eyes, so how could she not mind Ah Yan’s existence?

As for Xie Changyuan himself, what identity did he have now to prevent the Taizi from pursuing Qin Yan?

However, the Taizi wouldn’t have only one woman after all. If Qin Yan couldn’t tolerate A Yan, she won’t tolerate Taizi marrying someone else as his concubine.

Xie Changyuan clenched his fists, his eyes were red, looking at the carriage going away.

Then it depended on how far they could go.


When the people of the Duke of Zhenguo Mansion saw the Taizi getting into Qin Yan’s carriage, they were a little puzzled.

Shen Ci’s face darkened instantly, the Taizi was a playboy…

Shen Ci kicked his horse and wanted to go forward, but was stopped by the Duke of Zhenguo Shen Changshan.

Shen Changshan looked at Qin Yan’s carriage ahead and said in a deep voice: “Yanyan has always had her own ideas and doesn’t like too much interference.”

“All we can do is stand behind her as her backing.”

“Wait and see what happens.”

Shen Ci looked at the carriage of the Princess Mansion in front of him, feeling quite unhappy and a little uneasy.

If Yanyan’s future husband’s family was any noble family in the capital, the Duke of Zhenguo Mansion would have the power and ability to contend with them. If Yanyan’s marriage didn’t go well in the future, the Duke of Zhenguo Mansion could easily come forward to settle the trouble for Yanyan, or even handle the divorce for her.

However, if Yanyan married into the imperial family…

Shen Ci shook his head, only hoping that it was just a passing interest for Yanyan, and didn’t take it seriously.
