Being asked by Ye Chen if he had gone to the temple, Tang Sihai was shocked.
He didn’t know exactly what Ye Chen meant by asking himself this, whether he had grasped his whereabouts, or whether he even knew exactly who he had gone to see.
However, he was very smart, since he was surprised in his heart, he did not try to hide his surprise at all, instead, he asked with an astonished expression, “How do you know, young master?”
Ye Chen casually said, “You have the smell of incense on you.”
Tang Sihai came to a realisation, and at the same time, his heart let out a sigh of relief.
However, he didn’t dare to show any semblance of relief, but said with a smile, “My subordinate went to the Yonghe Palace this afternoon, and it just so happened that there was nothing else to do at that time in the afternoon, so I went to the temple to pay my respects.”
Ye Chen nodded, and did not become suspicious in his heart.
In itself, Tang Sihai’s position in the Ye family was the highest one outside of all the Ye family members, and for him, the butler’s job also had a high degree of freedom, and it was reasonable for him to take the time to burn incense and worship the Buddha.
As for why he went to burn incense and worship Buddha, Ye Chen did not think much about it.
After all, Chinese people going to temples, just like Europeans and Americans going to churches, were very everyday behaviours.
Thus, Ye Chen simply turned over the topic.
It was just that Lin Wan’er on the side looked at Tang Sihai twice more.
She didn’t notice too much abnormality either, she just felt that, Tang Sihai’s facial features and the feeling he gave off, was more like a staunch atheist, and it seemed to be a bit of a violation for this kind of person to go to a temple.
What’s more, with her understanding of Buddhism, people who believe in Tantric Tibetan Buddhism, although they are also very pious, but most of them have a strong utilitarian mind, which seeks wealth and power, accounting for the majority.
This is also the reason why almost all stars believe in Tibetan Buddhism.
In Lin Wan’er’s opinion, Tang Sihai’s face did not look like the kind of person with a strong sense of utilitarianism, so this point was more or less against the grain.
However, Lin Wan Er was also after all a human being and not a god, so she just found it strange, but it was hard to guess more with just a few words.
At this time, Ye Zhongquan, who was on the side, opened his mouth and asked Ye Chen, “Chen’er, how long do you plan to stay in Yanjing this time?”
Ye Chen truthfully said, “I haven’t thought about it yet, if it’s the soonest, tomorrow afternoon, in the morning, I want to go to Ye Ling Mountain to pay my respects to my mum and dad.”
Ye Zhongquan asked in surprise, “So hasty? It’s not easy to come once, why don’t you just stay here for a few more days.”
Ye Chen waved his hand, “Or not. I’m not going to hide it from you, I came here this time, mainly because I want to see if the things left behind by my parents can give me some hints or guidance, and I intend to take some time out and gradually walk all the roads they travelled on when they were young, and go to all the places they visited.”
Ye Zhongquan gently nodded and sighed, “Your parents have been mysterious back then, there are many things that I haven’t been able to figure out, since you have the idea of exploring the truth, grandpa also supports you.”
Saying that, he added: “Your parents’ room and study back then have been kept the same as it was twenty years ago, and I haven’t let anyone move anything inside, it has always been Four Seas who is responsible for maintaining it, after dinner later, you can go in and look around, and ask Four Seas if there is anything you are not clear about.”
At this moment, Yonghe Palace.
This extremely fragrant temple has closed its doors at this moment.
An Chengqi stood in the courtyard, smelling the dense scent of incense in the temple, looking at the bright moon in the sky, his heart was full of mixed feelings.
In her heart, all she thought about was her son, Ye Chen, who she hadn’t seen for twenty years.
At this moment, Yonghe Palace from the Ye family old house distance, but only a district of one or two kilometres, from here, ten minutes drive will be able to the door of the Ye family old house.
But even so, An Chengqi still repeatedly urged himself, now is not the time to meet with his son.
