Wen Qi Qi secretly sighed, but out of the corner of her eye, she saw Wen Ruyi, who had been previously pale in the face, now had a peach blossom blushing face while her eyes were staring at Gu Lin Chao in ecstasy.
Sure enough, Wen Ruyi really loves Gu Lin Chao.
She smacked her lips. Gu Lin Chao’s looks are indeed very attractive, only the original owner, that foolish egg, would believe in Wen Ruyi’s bullshit and avoid him. After being urged by Wen Ruyi, she actually ran away with someone and ended up in a tragic death ……
“This servant meets the Regent.” Wen Shi Qing has always been calm. Apart from being a little surprised at first, he returned to his normal self after seeing the person at this time.
“There is no need for the Duke to be polite.” Gu Lin Chao raised his hand absently. He looked around the circle of people, and his voice was as clear and cold as ice, “Get up.”
“Thank you, Your Majesty.” Wen Shi Qing straightened up, and the rest of the people also followed suit.
Wen Qi Qi hid behind Wen Shi Qing, subconsciously not wanting Gu Lin Chao to see her.
Unbeknownst to her, Gu Lin Chao had already seen her, and after a pause in his gaze, he moved it away.
“Your Majesty, please take your seat.” Wen Shi Qing said in a warm voice.
“Mm.” Gu Lin Chao lightly responded. He lifted his feet and walked to the first seat and sat down. “I hope the Duke and Madam will not blame me for the late-night disturbance. This King came here tonight, mainly to pick up the Regent Consort back to the house, in addition ……” There was a slight pause. “Si Yi, bring the person in.”
The people were puzzled, they saw a cold young man in guard attire, carrying a person in.
The person who did not need to be instructed by Si Yi, that person immediately “threw himself on the ground”, and already fell to his knees.
When she saw the man’s face clearly, Wen Ruyi’s expression changed greatly and a cold sweat immediately soaked through her inner shirt and her heart was in a panic.
How could this happen? How could Xue Zi Yu fall into Gu Lin Chao’s hands? She twisted the handkerchief in her hand and her whole person was at a loss for words.
“This person was sneaking around the Wen Mansion and was caught by this King’s men. He also confessed something to this King.” Gu Lin Chao’s voice was low and cold as if he was talking about a matter of little importance.
But when Xue Zi Yu, who was kneeling on the ground, heard him speak, he trembled like a fallen leaf in the autumn breeze, shivering. His head was buried deep in his chest as he wished he could escape.
Wen Shi Qing and Xu Shi look at each other and did not understand.
“What did this person confess to You Majesty?” Wen Shi Qing asked out loud.
Gu Lin Chao glanced at Xue Zi Yu, “Say what you just said to this King. In front of Duke Wen, say it again.”
Xue Zi Yu heard the words and dared not to be slow. He immediately raised his head and when his eyes saw Wen Ruyi at the side, he hurriedly said everything, “What happened tonight, she ordered me to do it, I did not do anything ……”
Wen Ruyi was horrified, but before she could say anything, Wen Ting Xuan asked first, “What did she instruct you to do?”
Xue Zi Yu said, “She instructed me to lure the Princess and take her to elope. She arranged for me to wait for the Princess at the back door of the Wen Mansion tonight, but I did not do anything ……”
When these words came out, Wen Shi Qing and the others were shocked.
Wen Qi Qi was also surprised and subconsciously looked at Gu Lin Chao.
A moment before, she was still lamenting the fact that she had let Xue Zi Yu escape, but she didn’t expect that he had been caught by Gu Lin Chao. Now Gu Lin Chao even let him testify against Wen Ruyi to her face.
Is he helping her?
Wen Qi Qi suddenly couldn’t understand Gu Lin Chao’s character anymore.
More importantly, how was Wen Ruyi going to excuse herself now?
She glanced at Wen Ruyi and saw her face was, indeed, as white as a ghost.
Previously, since Wen Shi Qing and his wife were still concerned about Old Madame Wen, they did not want to hold Wen Ruyi accountable for anything. However, now that Wen Ruyi had tried to harm their precious daughter, how could they still sit still?
