"Wipe your mouth dear. You are drooling," Matthew said in a jealous voice, handing a handkerchief to Harper. Just a moment before, she had said that he was the most handsome man in the world and that he was like an immortal descending to earth. But now she had her eyes fixed on another man.

Without taking the handkerchief, Harper frowned tightly and fell into deep thought. "Matthew, have I met Prince Francis before?" she asked him.

Despite the pent-up feeling in his throat, Matthew pretended to be all right and said, "Of course I don't know if you have ever seen Francis before. But I know you have always liked beautiful men. Francis is as beautiful as a flower and as weak as a willow branch trembling in the wind, so maybe you feel like you are old friends at first sight."

Harper fanned herself listlessly with her hand. "Darling, do you smell something sour?"

"No, I don't," Matthew replied decisively.

"But I do. I can feel the smell of a broken jar of vinegar. It smells so terribly sour," Harper said in a very low voice. "Are you sure it wasn't broken by you?"

Matthew put his hand around his wife's waist and pinched it abruptly. Harper almost screamed out but managed to hold it back. However, she had already drawn the attention of several others nearby. In a hurry, she picked up the wine glass in front of her to cover her gaffe. At the same time, she pinched the soft skin on Matthew's waist hard with her fingers. But he made no reaction at all. Disappointed, she cast him a glare.

Matthew was quite satisfied with Harper's reaction. He leaned over to her and whispered in her ear, "Darling, after we go back home, I must prove to you that a man like a willow branch trembling in the wind is useless, no matter how beautiful he is, and that your husband is the strong one you want."

"Shame on you," Harper grumbled.

See

ughty boy, can't you just stay here with us? You have just come back, and now you want to go out. Why are you so reluctant to stay here in the imperial capital?" the emperor said in reproof.

"You misunderstand me, Father. I just want to share the burden for your sake."

"Let Felix make the inspection tour. Don't even think of going outside. Just stay here in the imperial capital. Otherwise, you'll become uncivilized after being in remote places for so long," the emperor said playfully. Hearing that, Hoffman pressed the point no more.

"Yes, Father. I'll stay in the imperial capital and keep you company. Felix, you may face hardships during this tour, so I hope you can take good care of yourself," Hoffman said loudly.

"Thank you for your concern, Hoffman."

Harper pulled Matthew's sleeve and asked, "Matthew, is it exciting to do the inspection tour?"

Seeing that Harper's eyes lit up, Matthew answered, "Certainly. Along the way, the officers in every city will kneel down to welcome him and entertain him with banquets and all kinds of amusements. Do you think it sounds fun?"

"So, the so-called inspection tour is mainly about going outside and having fun with local officers, right?" Harper asked more bluntly.
