Returning to this place brought back complex feelings. He remembered the last time he was caught by Eunuch Shen here.
By then, Eunuch Shen was already there, and when he saw Shen Fengyue, he handed him a small green porcelain bottle.
“What’s this?” Shen Fengyue opened the lid, and under the moonlight, the clear liquid inside flowed.
As he leaned in for a closer look, two fingers pinched the lid of the bottle from his hand and snapped it back on without a word.
“Shhh…” Eunuch Shen put a finger to his lips and spoke seriously, “Your Majesty don’t mess with this, it’s very poisonous, just one drop can make a person impotent.”
Shen Fengyue was taken aback by his warning but quickly realized that drugging Emperor Chu to make him impotent would benefit no one except the system.
He was about to refute, but then he heard Eunuch Shen continue, “I lied to Your Majesty. If this medicine is given to Emperor Chu, it can make him mentally and physically weak.”
Shen Fengyue, “Why not just poison him to death?”
Eunuch Shen was taken aback. It was the first time he had been choked by him and chose to stare at him without speaking.
As soon as the words were out, Shen Fengyue realized that he had misspoken. How could a ruler of a country talk about killing someone so directly? It had to be done step by step. So he smiled awkwardly at Eunuch Shen.
Eunuch Shen also smiled at him, and the two smiled away their embarrassment.
“I understand. If there’s nothing else, I’ll go back first,” Shen Fengyue said as he turned to leave. Eunuch Shen had originally watched him go, but suddenly his expression changed, and he stretched out his long arm to pull the person in front of him in his arms, quickly hiding behind a nearby shelter.
Shen Fengyue was surprised by his actions and was about to say something when he saw Eunuch Shen’s serious expression and looked ahead. He had to wait patiently.
The man hugged him tightly, and Shen Fengyue felt uncomfortable being held so tightly. He moved to find a more comfortable position, accidentally touching a certain part of the man’s body, causing him to look slightly stunned.
The sound of footsteps ahead turned out to be a guard who needed to relieve himself during his night patrol, and after finishing his business, he pulled up his pants and left.
With the crisis averted, Eunuch Shen lowered his head and said to Shen Fengyue, who was still embedded in his embrace, “Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Imperial Concubine has been offended.”
Shen Fengyue was in a state of disillusionment, his soul drifting away.
A voice in the back of his mind told him that this might not be true and that he should confirm before jumping to conclusions.
So Shen Fengyue heeded the call of his inner voice and pinched.
Eunuch Shen’s expression suddenly became strange, and before he could react, Shen Fengyue pinched him again. Eunuch Shen let out a groan and quickly let go of him.
“You…you! You!” Shen Fengyue stumbled over his words and couldn’t articulate his thoughts, his three views were shattered.
He had never imagined that one day he would accidentally touch Eunuch Shen’s big treasure.
Yes, big treasure.
Eunuch Shen had a dark expression with a hint of darkness in his eyes as he said in a deep voice, “Yes”
The other person’s attitude was so calm, as if it wasn’t a big deal, while he was making a fuss.
Shen Fengyue shook his hand and pointed at him, saying, “You also have a big one!”
“‘Also?” Eunuch Shen savored the word and seized the point.
Shen Fengyue’s Adam’s apple moved slightly up and down, and he dryly said under the other’s gaze, “This palace spoke too fast earlier and didn’t turn the corner in time.”
Eunuch Shen listened, and the corners of his mouth lifted slightly.
A pair of beautiful eyes glared at him angrily. “This palace is a woman. How can you be so rude?”
Eunuch Shen chuckled lightly, took a good look at him, and then said, “What a gorgeous and peerless beauty.”
This statement made goosebumps rise all over him. Then Eunuch Shen stepped forward, and Shen Fengyue instinctively stepped back. The two of them advanced and retreated until Shen Fengyue was cornered against the wall.
Eunuch Shen placed one hand on the side of his face and the other hand blocked his way, making the height difference between him and Shen Fengyue even more apparent when he stopped moving.
Shen Fengyue, being a small and helpless figure, was pressed against the wall by a tall man.
He looked up at the man helplessly, confused by his intentions.
Seeing his reaction, Eunuch Shen couldn’t help but chuckle, leaning in closer to his ear while stroking his neck with his thumb. In a low voice, he whispered, “It’s quite a coincidence that the Imperial Concubine can fake voices, and so can I.”
He spoke in two different tones, the first half in a high-pitched, flat and sharp voice unique to eunuchs, and the second half in a low and seductive male voice.
It was like drawing a bow across a cello string, elegant, low, and husky, stirring the heart and soul.
After speaking, he chuckled in a low voice, right next to Shen Fengyue’s ear, and the hot breath made his ear turn red. The low laughter was like a soft brush, tickling his ear and his heart.
Not only was his ear tickled, but also his heart.
Shen Fengyue trembled as his Adam’s apple was accurately pressed and gently caressed. The original owner’s Adam’s apple was very well-hidden and could only be revealed by tilting their head to a certain angle, making it difficult to notice.
Eunuch Shen kept touching his Adam’s apple as if holding his life in his hands.
Back in the palace chambers, Shen Fengyue shook his head to clear the repeated sound of Imperial Concubine, Imperial Concubine coming from his mind. He rubbed his neck vigorously, trying to get rid of the strange sensation, only stopping when his neck turned red.
He thought for a moment and felt that the eastern wall was not a good place for him. He had been there twice, and both times had been bad news.
The first time, he had revealed his identity as a spy.
The second time, his identity as a man had been exposed.
Eunuch Shen’s face suddenly appeared in his mind, startling Shen Fengyue. He felt that guy was becoming more shameless after his exposure.
