Chaoge was exasperated . βBut why? Heβs the crown prince, but youβre the principal of Imperial College! How can he order you around? Didnβt some former principal punish a crown prince once, and no harm came to him afterward?β
Mr Lu smiled bitterly . βThatβs right . I enjoy the same status as His Royal Highness, but times have changed . This is Jun Linyuanβs timeβ¦ Please listen to me . The two of you, especially Xiao Wu, should pack your things and leave the imperial capitalβ¦β
Kiddo, itβs so obvious that the crown prince doesnβt like you .
Feng Wu took a deep breath and looked at Mr Lu . βSo, I can take the exam if Jun Linyuan says yes?β
βOf course,β said Mr Lu . βEverything will be fine if you can persuade His Royal Highness . β
But His Royal Highness dislikes you so much that he sent someone with that reminderβ¦ How are you going to change his mind? Thatβs just not going to happen .
Mr Lu gave Feng Wu a sympathetic look, then heaved a sigh .
Feng Wu promptly left the office, so fast that she looked like a gust of wind .
She was furious!
Chaoge wanted to follow Feng Wu, but the latter stopped her . βGo to General Secretary Fang and start working on the written exam . After all, we only have seven days . Time is of the essence here . β
Mr Lu didnβt know what to say .
Grand Secretary Fang and Priest Wu, who had come back in, were also speechless .
Chaoge said with a long face, βXiao Wu, we canβt even register for the exam; whatβs the point preparing for it? Itβs a waste of our energy . β
βSays who? Iβm going to take the exam and no one is going to stop me!β
Feng Wu flared up!
He was the one who had given her the task and he was the one standing in her way now . Β Jun Linyuan, damn you!
In the crown princeβs residence outside the royal palace .
The crown prince sneezed . He rubbed his nose β was someone talking about him?
βWhat time is it now?β The crown prince was reclining on a soft couch and casually feeding the fish in the pond .
βItβs a quarter to seven,β replied Feng immediately .
Rubbing his nose, Jun Linyuan looked up at the birds soaring in the blue sky and he gloated .
That girl wouldnβt be able to run any faster after what he did to her . Β Letβs see how fast youβll run to me this time,Β the crown prince thought proudly .
Just then β
Chang San rushed in like a gust of wind and dropped to his knees in front of Jun Linyuan . With a long face, he said, βYour Royal Highnessβ¦β
Jun Linyuan frowned . βYes?β
βYour Royal Highness, Iβm guilty of a crime which even my death cannot atone for . β
βSpeak . β Jun Linyuan was displeased by the interruption .
βYour Royal Highness, I delivered the message to Mr Lu of Imperial College as you instructed . But I didnβt know that Miss Wu was in the study at the moment, and she heard everything . Your Royal Highness, Iβm guilty!β
Chang San was almost frightened to death!
According to Feng, His Royal Highness was in love with Miss Wu, and Miss Wu wasnβt to know about that message at all . But heβ¦ He was so deadβ¦
Chang San felt a chilly sensation on his neck, as if he was going to lose his head at any moment .
However, the crown prince only looked down at him with his cold, brooding eyes . βWhat are you guilty of?β
βHuh?β Chang San was dumbfounded . Didnβt His Royal Highness like Miss Wu?
Jun Linyuan smirked . βDonβt tell me you think I like that stupid girl?β
βWhat?β Chang San was even more baffled . Didnβt His Royal Highness like her?
Exasperated, Jun Linyuan smacked the table .
