Lin Sisi remained deeply dissatisfied, but she understood that she couldn’t openly oppose the empress.
She gritted her teeth and begrudgingly returned to Lin Aotian’s side.
Lin Aotian patted her back. “Alright, Sisi, later I’ll personally bring back a fierce tiger for you!”
“Humph!” Lin Sisi seethed inwardly.
She was fully capable of taming a tiger on her own!
Chu Xiuwen playfully fanned himself as he stood up, laughing. “Seventh Brother, Father didn’t explicitly forbid us from going to the hunting grounds. We’re men, not to be trapped like women. Let’s go change!”
Chu Chengye nodded in agreement.
Chu Xiuwen intentionally walked past Lin Sisi and Su Yingxue with Chu Chengye, flaunting their presence.
Lin Sisi was on the brink of exploding with frustration!
Her anger was getting the best of her, and she even considered snatching the red jade soft whip from Su Yingxue’s hand.
“Stop fooling around.”
Su Yingxue lightly tapped her small hand.
Lin Sisi was so frustrated she could almost cry.
However, Su Yingxue calculated that the brothers needed some time to change and enter the arena. She still had time to do something.
Quietly, she slipped into Chu Yihan’s courtyard.
The Upper Forest Court was the nearest temporary residence to the imperial palace. Chu Yihan held a unique and esteemed position, and his courtyard here was just as large as the emperor. Moreover, Su Yingxue remembered there was a pathway here that led directly to the imperial palace, and it was quite convenient.
So, she sought Chu Yihan’s assistance, hoping he could invite Consort Xiang over.
Chu Yihan’s stern face showed no emotion. “Why should I help you?”
Su Yingxue pursed her lips. “Your Highness, please help me invite Consort Xiang over. In return, I’ll help you discipline your two unruly nephews! The Third Prince’s insolence towards you yesterday was truly unacceptable. If he isn’t taught a lesson, how will he learn to respect his imperial uncle?” “Haha!”
Mo Qi chuckled, thinking Su Yingxue was quite skilled in improvisation.
Chu Yihan set down his teacup and leaned his head on his hand, a lazy smile tugging at his lips. “1 want to teach those two good-for-nothing nephews a lesson. 1 don’t need anyone else. I can just do it directly.”
Su Yingxue was at a loss for words.
“You’re quite confident, aren’t you?” She thought.
“Your Highness, please help me! I want to teach them a lesson!” Su Yingxue unconsciously acted a bit coquettish towards Chu Yihan.
The corners of Chu Yihan’s lips curled up.
Mo Qi thought to himself, “The master is certainly reveling in this!”
He quietly withdrew.
Chu Yihan remained silent, and time was running out for Su Yingxue.
In a rush, she approached Chu Yihan, grasped his hand, and pleaded, “Your Highness, please send someone quickly! If it’s delayed, Consort Xiang won’t make it in time! There’s still a journey ahead of her!”
Chu Yihan’s hand was held by Su Yingxue, her soft fingers gently caressing his hand like a massage.
A sense of contentment swept over Chu Yihan. “Very well, I’ll help you. But how do you plan to express your gratitude?”
“Your Highness surely doesn’t require my gratitude.” Su Yingxue was still her mischievous self.
Chu Yihan had taken away her jade pendant and handkerchief, and she hadn’t retrieved them yet.
She had nothing left to offer Chu Yihan as a token of thanks!
“If you don’t express gratitude, I won’t help.”
Chu Yihan toyed with her jade pendant, a hint of playfulness in his cold expression.
Su Yingxue tilted her head, contemplating whether to make a threat to Chu Yihan.
“Are you going or not? If you don’t, I’ll kiss you!” She thought.
But then she remembered that the person in front of her was the Ninth Prince. Even Chu Chengye and Chu Xiuwen had to bow their heads obediently before him. Su Yingxue decided it was wiser to keep herself alive for a few more years.
So, she earnestly inquired of Chu Yihan, “Your Highness, what kind of expression of gratitude would you like?”
Chu Yihan looked at her approaching face, her rosy lips tempting, and replied with a faint smile, “Kiss me..”
