Sure enough, as Xiao Wangye’s name suggested, he blushed very easily. 
Especially when the Little Emperor came to see him.
The Little Emperor stood in front of the cradle with Little Yan-daren. The milk baby was sucking on his fingers while he stared straight at them with his big moist eyes, making the Little Emperor happy.
The Little Emperor asked Little Yan-daren to try carrying him.
The moment he fell into his arms, the milk baby actually blushed.
The Little Emperor was delighted. “Jiu-di  is really too cute!”
Little Yan-daren had a cold face. “Your Jiu-di is peeing on me.”
In the twinkling of an eye, Xiao Wangye was finally at the age where he could go to school with his older brothers. However, he grew up slowly and was only as tall as a desk.
The old teacher was afraid that Xiao Wangye could not reach the desk, so he put three zafus  on the chair in advance.
Xiao Wangye stood foolishly, at a loss on what to do.
Little Yan-daren, who was following behind the Little Emperor, saw this and strode over.
At this time, Little Yan-daren had already grown into a tall, young man. He effortlessly picked up the little thing and put him at last on that high pile of zafus.
Xiao Wangye hung his feet and swayed them, his face turning red again.
Since the Little Emperor was the eldest son of the Empress , all throughout his life, he was the master of the Eastern palace.
As a personal bodyguard, Little Yan-daren grew up with the Little Emperor. He was considered as the red man  beside the Little Emperor.
Yan-daren was serious in speech and manner, and it was hard for outsiders to get close to him. This was a well-known fact.
However, if he were with the Little Emperor, who was the Taizi, he became amiable and easy to approach.
Xiao Wangye especially loved to run to the Eastern palace during the day. The palace said that he liked to stick to this older brother of his, who was ten years his senior.
Only a few servant girls around Xiao Wangye knew the truth. “Oh, off to find Yan-daren again ah.”
5 蒲团 – A pútuán, also known as a zafu. It is often used for zen meditation.
Note: By the end of this chapter, the “Little Emperor” is no longer “little.” However, he will still be referred to as such in chapters when the previous Emperor was still alive in order to differentiate between them.
Lizonka: …. Yes, our Xiao Wangye has a puppy crush on, not his bodyguard, but his brother’s, haha. From that alone, I had already inferred a lot of angsty plotlines. Tell me what you think would happen in the comments~
