The Trick to Teasing a Noble Family’s Son- Chapter8 (3/3)
“So beautiful…” Her expression and words made Xie Jie feel a little chilled, but also a little happy as if the darkness engraved in his bones had been mobilized. Usually, everyone in the capital assumes the air of a gentleman, and when they talk about conspiracies, they have to be very upright and subtle. It was the first time I saw someone show their dark side so bluntly, he couldn’t help but be a bit agitated.
“Sometimes, I can’t help but think,” Wei Lan hooked up the corner of his mouth: “If I could put the fourth son of Xie in chains, break his limbs, put him forever in a place where no one can see, his despair mixed with pain, that must be the most beautiful spectacle in the world.”
Wei Lan frowned and said, somewhat distressed, “Hey… I probably drank too much; otherwise, how could I speak like a bastard?”
Hearing this, Xie Jie immediately understood that Wei Lan needed him to make a statement. So he hurriedly said,” To tell the truth, when people are drunk, their hearts are filled with thoughts so dark that others couldn’t bear. But that’s normal so there’s no harm in being frank.”
“Ah Jie doesn’t think that,” Wei Lan showed an apprehensive expression,” it’s too scary for me to have thoughts like these?”
“How so?” Xie Jie’s eyes were already full of “I support you”, he patted Wei Lan’s shoulder, and said seriously,” Ah Lan likes the fourth brother too much, although it is not understood by the world, this is also love ah!”
“Ah Jie is indeed my good brother!” Wei Lan slapped the small fan on the table. Xie Jie Shivered with fright as he heard the person opposite him say excitedly,” Then I’ll thank you, my brother! I also hope that Ah Jie will arrange it well and see what reasons and methods will be used to bring the Fourth young master Xie out quietly. When the time comes, I will provide the manpower, and I will never implicate Brother Jie!
“There is no such thing as being implicated or not.”Xie Jie hurriedly served the wine,” My brother’s business is my business. I just hope that Brother Lan gets what he wants and can spend the rest of his life with the fourth brother, growing old together. Oh! To avoid further trouble, when the time comes, I also hope that brother Lan can keep a close eye on the fourth brother……”
“Don’t worry about that, “Wei Lan raised the corner of his mouth,” When I get my fourth brother, I’m going to break his limbs and lock him in the house for the rest of his life so he can only see me from now on.”
Hearing this, Xie Jie was relieved, revealing an expression of joy, and said boldly,” Come on! To you and me. Cheers!”
Wei Lan smiled faintly, clinking glasses said,” Cheers!”
Since both sides had reached an agreement, they didn’t delay any longer. After three rounds of drinking, the two crossed their shoulders and walked out of the yard, and each got into their own carriage.
As soon as they got into the car, Wei Lan sobered up from his drunkenness, coldly hooked the corners of his mouth, and cursed angrily, “What the hell!”
On the other hand, Xie Jie climbed into his carriage and kept muttering in front of his subordinates, “It’s too perverted …… too perverted. Fortunately, I am not good-looking, did not let him look at me.”
The servant was a little confused: “Sir, what are you talking about?”
Xie Jie shook his head and waved his hand,” Come on! Drive! I need to hurry back and meet normal people.”
The people in the two carriages dispersed in different ways with different minds, while Xie Zichen, who was reading in the Xie Mansion, sneezed all night.
This scene is a bit difficult to see, and the little servant can’t help but worry: “Young Master, are you suffering from the cold?”
Xie Zichen didn’t say anything but muttered silently in his heart.
Compared with the cold, he thinks… it was more likely that he was scolded all night, right?
T/N: I won’t lie and say that I was busy but after being occupied for a whole month with travelling, cleaning, arranging and other stuff that needed to be done after returning home after 6 months. I literally felt like I was paralyzed where even though I had recovered physically, mentally I still felt super exhausted. But I felt super guilty for not posting anything for such a long time that I decided I have to sit down and finish this chapter today at all costs. Even though that sounds super determined, I was actually very distracted and dragged it for an entire day where I could’ve finished it within 2-3 hours if I was really focused. When will I post next? Let’s see, Even I am not sure.
Back to the story, somehow it felt like XJ and WL were having a competition of who could disgust the other more. And I don’t know if I am accurate but it felt like they were both testing each other’s bottom line to see how low can the other go.
from what we know about WL, it is evident that even though she’s flirty to a fault, she’s by no means a person without morality. Even when people gave her offers that wouldn’t hurt or bound her in anyway, she always adhered to her bottom line and never indulged.
Also, it’s so sad to see how people can resort to extreme measures to achieve their goals and don’t even consider twice before pushing others who stood in their way to bottomless pits of hell.
How do you think this situation is gonna playout? At one point I guessed that WL would just push XJ to another male courtesan and play a reverse UNO card on him, But guess things aren’t that simple.
I cant wait to see how Wei Lan betrays Xie Zichen.
