Inside the bathroom, Yi Nuo’s eyes were blank with pain. He felt that his waist and tailbone were about to be broken.
However, it was too late. Yi Nuo only had enough time to transform his fishtail and ear fins back to more human characteristics before Yue Zhan pushed the door open.
But as soon as he calmed down, he heard footsteps coming from outside the door and couldn’t help shouting in panic, “Don’t come in!”
“Your Highness, how are you—”
Yue Zhan’s tone wasn’t as calm as usual, and after seeing the situation in the bathroom, his voice stopped abruptly.
The scene in front of him was really impactful. The young man’s body was slender, his bones and flesh were well proportioned, and his skin was white and translucent. After being stained with a few water droplets, it resembled a crystal.
Yue Zhan subconsciously thought of the ‘descriptions’ made by Yi Nuo just now, but to be honest, the scenery in front of him was more beautiful than those. It was so beautiful that he couldn’t bear to have a trace of blasphemy.
Yue Zhan didn’t dare to think more about those voices in his heart. He hurriedly lowered his eyes, took a deep breath and said, “Sorry, I’m in a hurry.”
With that, he stepped back and closed the door.
When Yue Zhan came in, Yi Nuo was stunned and his mind went blank.
Fortunately, Yue Zhan went out again. After Yi Nuo returned to his senses, he couldn’t help but rejoice.
But before Yi Nuo could rejoice for two seconds, Yue Zhan opened the door again and asked with his eyes lowered, “Your Highness, are you alright? Do you need help?”
Thinking of the situation just now, Yi Nuo blushed from shame from head to toe, looking like a cooked shrimp, and without thinking about it, he replied, “No need, you go away!”
“Sorry.” Yue Zhan hurriedly left.
However, two minutes later, the little prince’s stern voice came from the bathroom, “Well… I, my back hurts, and I can’t move. You, can you come in and hold me?”
Yue Zhan recalled the scene for a while, took a deep breath, and said with difficulty, “Then I’ll… Go in now?”
“…Yes.” Yi Nuo’s voice was slightly nasal, a little soft and waxy, and it was completely free from the arrogance just now.
Yi Nuo was curled up in the water with his head down, like an ostrich. His ears were red as if they were about to bleed. After thinking about it, he gathered the courage to say, “You, come in and hold me.”
But even if he made up his mind, he still felt ashamed. When Yue Zhan was about to open the door, Yi Nuo ordered angrily, “Close your eyes and don’t look around.”
“Yes.” Yue Zhan took a deep breath and finally walked in again.
He did close his eyes, but he remembered seeing a bathrobe on the shelf before, so he walked over and fumbled for a while; after getting the bathrobe, he walked towards the little prince.
The water in the bathtub was cold, and Yue Zhan couldn’t help frowning when he touched it. When he got in touch with the little prince’s skin, it was cold and slippery.
In Yue Zhan’s thoughts, the little prince was a weak person that would definitely get sick after taking such a cold bath. So he subconsciously preached, “Your Highness, how can you take a cold bath?”
Yi Nuo was embarrassed and wished that this situation was over instantly. He didn’t want to speak at all. Hearing Yue Zhan’s words, he angrily said, “Shut up and hold me.”
At the same time, he thought—
[If I don’t take a cold bath and take a hot bath instead, I will become braised fish. Does Yue Zhan want to eat fish?]
Yi Nuo wouldn’t have been so rude in a different situation. But at this moment, he was ashamed, and who was to blame for this? It wasn’t too excessive to take out his anger on Yue Zhan.
After Yue Zhan heard his thoughts, he stopped for a while, feeling that the little prince’s delusional disorder had become more serious. This time he actually imagined that he was a fish.
No, the little prince had fantasized about it before, thinking he would remove his fishtail.
But how could a man have a fishtail? Was he a mermaid?
As far as everyone knew, mermaids went extinct 600 years ago.
Yue Zhan shook his head secretly and picked up the wet little prince from the water.
Because Yi Nuo was wrapped in a bathrobe, there was no need for Yue Zhan to keep his eyes closed. But before opening them, he asked the little prince first.
“Yes. You can open them.” Yi Nuo replied, giving his consent.
When Yue Zhan opened his eyes, he saw the little prince curled up in his arms, with blushing ears and a low head, as if he wanted to be buried in his chest, but he didn’t dare to get too close to him.
Like a frightened little animal, it made people miss rua1It means to knead, touch, rub, pinch..
Yue Zhan looked away with difficulty and walked steadily towards the bedroom, holding the little prince who wasn’t very heavy.
But when Yue Zhan put the little prince on the bed, his hand accidentally touched something. When people’s hands touch something soft and elastic, most of them will subconsciously pinch it.
Yue Zhan’s reaction was the same, and before he returned to his senses, he had already pinched the soft object.
Then, the two of them froze together.
Two seconds later, the little prince’s very improper angry rebuke came out of the room, “Shameless! Beast! You actually took the opportunity to pinch my ass!”
After scolding, Yi Nuo thought in his heart—
[Ah, ah, how can I say such an inappropriate word as ‘ass’!!]
[It’s all because of Yue Zhan! The beast must have done it on purpose. Because I haven’t talked much to him these days, he found a chance to break into my room and make me fall, and then… What a deep scheme!!]
[Damn, why does he have the keys to my bedroom? I want to change rooms!!!]
For the first time, Yue Zhan was so embarrassed. He was extremely embarrassed, feeling that he had lost his face for the rest of his life.
Yue Zhan hurriedly pulled the thin quilt beside him, covered the fluttering little prince, apologized, and coaxed, “It’s my fault, but I really didn’t mean it. Your Highness… Alas, please stop squirming, be mindful of your waist…”
When Major General Lin and Hu Yichen came to the door of the room, they heard Yue Zhan’s words and couldn’t help being stunned.
One came to report to Yue Zhan for work, and the other came to bid farewell to Yi Nuo. However, none of them expected to encounter such a situation.
Major General Lin was okay. After returning to his senses, he sighed, “As expected of Major General Yue, the ability to move is fast.”
Hu Yichen was different. He felt there was something wrong with the movement in the room. The little prince seemed to be… unwilling.
Yue Zhan: “Your Highness, be good and don’t move, or I…”
Yi Nuo: “I won’t move if you don’t touch me. Let go of me! Ah, it hurts…”
When these words reached Hu Yichen’s ears, their meaning changed instantly.
Hu Yichen suddenly remembered what the little prince had said to him before. The other party said that ‘Yue Zhan wasn’t a good person’ and ‘was a beast in private.’ The little prince also said that if he couldn’t deal with Yue Zhan in the future, he hoped he could help him.
The little prince hoped he could help him in the future?
Hu Yichen vaguely understood something. He mistakenly thought that the little prince and Commander Yue were in love, but now that he thought about it, that didn’t seem to be the case.
The little prince, he… wasn’t willing.
Whether it was the Emperor’s order to marry the Yue family or Yue Zhan’s power, in short, none of it was voluntary.
After all, although he was a prince, he… had no real power.
The more Hu Yichen thought about it, the colder his heart became.
Next to him, Major General Lin smiled awkwardly and said, “Hey, I didn’t expect that a serious person like Commander Yue would also know how to have fun in love, ha ha…”
After speaking, he patted Hu Yichen on the shoulder and said, “Xiao Hu, it was an accident that we came here today. If you have anything to report, please wait until they’re done.”
Unexpectedly, when Hu Yichen looked up, his eyes were red, and his voice trembled as he said, “Can’t you hear it? Major General Yue is forcing His Highness.”
“Ah?” Major General Lin was stunned. After a while, he regained his senses and said with embarrassment, “Yichen, you haven’t been in love, have you? You don’t understand. When you have a daughter-in-law, you’ll understand… Hey, don’t go in!”
Hu Yichen couldn’t hear Major General Lin’s explanation. He just wanted to rush in immediately and rescue the little prince from the hands of the demon king.
After he thought about it, Hu Yichen did it and didn’t care so much.
After rushing into the bedroom, Hu Yichen directly grabbed Yue Zhan’s shoulders and said angrily, “Let go of His Highness!”
However, he was part of the technical department and didn’t have much strength. Even when he pulled hard, he couldn’t move Yue Zhan.
Yue Zhan turned his head, with two scratches on his cheek, and frowned at him.
In bed, Yi Nuo was stunned.
The scene was once again very embarrassing.
Major General Lin followed Hu Yichen closely and broke the embarrassment in the room. He said anxiously, “Hey Xiao Hu, how can you break in directly?”
Hu Yichen couldn’t move Yue Zhan, but he didn’t give up. With red eyes, he accused, “Commander Yue, I’ve always respected you before, but I didn’t expect you to be so… in private. Even if you like His Highness, you can’t force him. No wonder His Highness told me before that you’re not a good man.”
Major General Lin was stunned when he saw the situation in the room. He looked at the red marks on the little prince’s wrist, the scratches on Yue Zhan’s face, the mess in the room and immediately misunderstood.
“This… Xiao Yue, how can you… treat His Highness like this?” Although he was the deputy commander, he had the same rank as Yue Zhan, and he was also his elder. Occasionally, he talked to Yue Zhan in the tone of addressing the younger generation.
Yue Zhan: “…” Where did these silly people come from?
Yue Zhan felt he was wrong. Just now it wasn’t the most humiliating moment of his life, but now it was.
“You have misunderstood.” Yue Zhan pressed the center of his eyebrows with a headache. And because Yi Nuo was no longer squirming, he finally dared to release his hands.
“I just…” Yue Zhan explained with difficulty, “His Royal Highness fell down while taking a bath. I just carried him back to the room and didn’t break any rules.”
[Nonsense, you pinched my… buttocks.]
Yue Zhan stiffened for a second and sighed tiredly, “Maybe there was some… accidental touch when holding him, which made His Highness misunderstand.”
[What accidental touch? You’re whitewashing yourself. You did it on purpose. Would you accidentally pinch someone?]
Yue Zhan: “…”
The matter was really inexplicable, and he didn’t know how it was…
Alas, the mistake has been made, and I can only do my best to remedy it.
Yue Zhan had a headache. At the moment, he just wanted to throw out Major General Lin and Hu Yichen and then have a good talk with the little man behind him. What does the little highness want him to do so that he no longer cares about this… accident that made him feel extremely embarrassed?
Moreover, how did things develop into this? Why did he fall into this situation? Why would he stand here and explain to his two subordinates that he really wasn’t a hooligan?
Hu Yichen didn’t believe Yue Zhan’s words and turned to Yi Nuo for confirmation.
Yi Nuo also felt embarrassed and wanted to hide himself under the quilt. It was one thing for him to get angry and accuse others, but it was another thing to be caught by others.
“I’m fine. Hu Yichen, you go back first.” He whispered, trying to end the extremely embarrassing scene as soon as possible.
However, Hu Yichen felt that Yi Nuo was forcing a smile. He couldn’t help pursing his lips and looked at Yue Zhan with reproachful eyes.
Yue Zhan’s head hurt even more. Now he especially wanted to pilot the mecha and vent it out in a fight with someone.
Fortunately, Major General Lin came forward to smooth things out, saying with a smile, “Since it’s a misunderstanding, then we won’t bother you further.”
After speaking, he forcibly dragged Hu Yichen away.
Hu Yichen turned back as he walked. Halfway through, he suddenly said, “Your Highness, wait for me. I’ll definitely become stronger.”
“Ah?” Yi Nuo was stunned for a second. He didn’t understand why Hu Yichen suddenly mentioned this, but…
[Motivation is good. Hu Yichen will soon become a mecha master. He can help me make weapons to deal with Yue Zhan in the future.]
So, Yi Nuo clenched his fist, waved it hard, and encouraged, “Come on, I believe in you!”
The corners of Yue Zhan’s mouth twitched slightly as he thought: No wonder the little prince kept trying to help Hu Yichen. So this was his idea?
Oh, the delusional disorder is getting worse and worse.
Also, why did these words of encouragement sound so familiar? It seems that the little prince said the same to him when he was going to the battlefield?
Oh, it turns out the words of encouragement are still universal.
Yue Zhan directly touched the little prince’s head with a finger, pushed the person back to the bed, and said faintly, “What are you looking at? That person has already left.”
Yi Nuo glanced at him, snorted softly, and ignored him, not wanting to talk to him for the time being.
But Yue Zhan suddenly leaned over and said in his ear with gritted teeth, “You told Hu Yichen that I’m not a good person?”
Yi Nuo’s action of hiding under the quilt immediately froze, and then he continued to hide, not forgetting to cover his head.
With a dark face, Yue Zhan pulled off the quilt.
Yi Nuo looked at him innocently, because…
He couldn’t move because of back pain, and he couldn’t run away… Therefore, he looked at Yue Zhan’s dark eyes, which were full of turbulent emotions. For fear of being beaten, Yi Nuo had no choice but to say, “I was wrong.”
Yue Zhan: “…” It’s a foul to be this cute.
“But you just caused me to fall and pinched me. We’re even.” Yi Nuo added.
When Yue Zhan heard his words, he couldn’t help lowering his eyes, recalling the touch at that time, and he subconsciously thought: It’s not even.
