Standing outside the private study, waiting for the Eunuch to finish speaking to the Crown Prince was the First Prince.
The First Prince's palms felt clammy, as a droplet of cold sweat trickled down his forehead. He nervously licked his bottom lip whilst wiping his hands on his sides. What was he supposed to say to his younger brother?
"Oh hey, I knocked out your guards, crept through your window to scare you, but walked in on your naked wife in bed, even though she was covered up to her shoulders, but still?"
He nearly facepalmed himself. Such words would earn him an instant execution, that not even his mother and father could prevent. When Yu Zhen was out for blood, he would not stop until it was spilled.
When the First Prince heard a quiet "Come in," he began to pray to the Gods internally. He pleaded with every God that he knew, regardless if they were worshipped in this country or not.
