Chapter 15: Promise

Xiao Jun Xi looked at Xie Ru Zhuo. His heart moved. Everyone thought that he was just a favoured prince. He was different from his brothers, all of them supported by ministers.

The little girl in front of him was convinced that he has the ability to protect her family. Should he laugh at the fact that Xie Ru Zhuo was too ignorant?

"Miss Xie, is that what you wanted me to do?" Xiao Jun Xi asked again.

Xie Ru Zhuo nodded: "Just now your highness asked me what my wishes were. I couldn't think of anything, but since your highness insisted, I could only think of my family. All I wish for is for them to be safe."

Xiao Jun Xi wondered if he was to blame for forcing her to make a wish he couldn’t fulfill.

She looked at Xiao Jun Xi's expression and couldn't help but giggle. In her previous life, Xiao Jun Xi had a stern face and never showed any kind of facial expression, no matter under any situation. Looking at him showing a different side of him from her previous life, Xie Ru Zhuo suddenly felt he was so cute!

Xiao Jun Xi threw a warning gaze on Xie Ru Zhuo when he heard her giggle.

Xie Ru Zhuo suppressed her giggle and turned serious.

He looked at her, she was still kneeling on the ground. He reluctantly said: "Since Miss Xie made those wishes, as long as the Xie family didn’t commit any treason and don't do anything that will endanger the lives of the peoples, I will try to protect Xie family."

Xie Ru Zhuo gratefully kowtowed towards Xiao Jun Xi: "Thank you, Third Prince."

"Get up quickly!" Xiao Jun Xi couldn't bear to watch her kneeling on the ground as she was still injured.

Xie Ru Zhuo nodded, touched her injured chest with one hand, and slowly got up.

Watching her trying to get up while injured softened his heart. Since there was no one here he stepped forward to support Xie Ru Zhuo and assisted her to sit on the soft couch.

Xie Ru Zhuo's cheeks turned red, she said in a soft voice: "Thank you, Third Prince..."

Xiao Jun Xi looked at Xie Ru Zhuo's flushed face, knowing that she felt uncomfortable: "You take good care of yourself, I'm leaving!"

Xie Ru Zhuo wanted to get up to see him off.

Xiao Jun Xi pressed her shoulder with his hand, shook his head when he realized what she intended to do, "You should lie down so that the wound will not open again."

Xie Ru Zhuo no longer insisted, she nodded: "Goodbye your highness."

Xiao Jun Xi nodded and looked at Xie Ru Zhuo for a while before he left.

“Your Highness!”

Xiao Jun Xi had just walked out of the door when he saw a eunuch stepping forward. He looked at Xiao Jun Xi carefully and when he felt that there was nothing wrong with him, the eunuch looked relieved.

Xiao Jun Xi looked at the eunuch. He was a little bit dumbfounded. What can an injured woman do to him? This eunuch is too cautious!

Xiao Jun Xi's mind wandered to Shen Jing Ci, his eyes turned cold. He turned toward the eunuch: " Secretly investigate Shen Jing Ci and I want to know why she was on the hunting ground on the day of the accident."

Xiao Li Zi, who was Xiao Jun Xi's personal eunuch, heard Xiao Jun Xi's order, his face was slightly surprised. He asked in a low voice: "Master, do you mean Miss Shen Jing Ci from Shen family who rescued you and Miss Xie that day?"

Xiao Jun Xi nodded, he added: "It's her, this must be a secret, don't let the Royal Father know about this!"

Xiao Li Zi replied "Yes" in a low voice.
