Him deliberately saying this, could it be that Gu Lin Chao does not actually believe that she and Xue Zi Yu are not involved? That’s why he deliberately sent Xue Zi Yu to her to test her?
If she had anything to do with Xue Zi Yu, seeing Xue Zi Yu’s situation at this time, she would definitely be soft-hearted and open her mouth to plead for him and save his life.
“He conspired with Wen Ruyi to set me up, why should I plead for his mercy? I think you’re right, what this person did is enough for him to die.” Wen Qi Qi raised her chin and said without much concern, “Right, let’s just give him the punishment of death by carving.” Saying that she reached out and patted Si Yi’s shoulder and walked towards Gu Lin Chao.
Si Yi: “……”
Why was it different from what he imagined?
Was it possible that Wen Qi Qi was really not involved with Xue Zi Yu?
His eyebrows knitted together and he raised his hand and brushed off his shoulder.
Xue Zi Yu directly fainted in shock.
“Drag him down.” Si Yi frowned in disgust.
Immediately two iron-armored guards came up and dragged the person down.
Not far away, Gu Lin Chao naturally saw the scene just now, and his gaze faintly landed on Si Yi.
Si Yi sensed it and his heart ached. He lowered his head in disbelief that his master had blamed him for taking the initiative.
Gu Lin Chao withdrew his gaze and focused on Wen Qi Qi.
Wen Qi Qi met his gaze with a frank expression.
Gu Lin Chao paused and moved his eyes away.
“The Regent has returned. This old slave, this old slave has seen the Regent ……” At this time, Housekeeper Chen led his subordinates and quickly greeted Gu Lin Chao. Seeing Gu Lin Chao, the old housekeeper was so excited that he was a bit incoherent, and it was obvious that he was very happy to see Gu Lin Chao return.
“This slave servant welcomes the Regent back to the residence.” Immediately after that, a beautiful servant girl took two steps forward and curtsied towards Gu Lin Chao.
Wen Qi Qi noticed that when she bent her legs, she deliberately lowered them excessively so that her fair and slender neck was naturally exposed.
Seeing this, she raised her eyebrows. This servant girl was quite scheming. Deliberately showing her skin in front of Gu Lin Chao in a seemingly unconscious way, was this an attempt to seduce Gu Lin Chao?
In this regard, she was somewhat curious about Gu Lin Chao’s reaction.
The beautiful maidservant was close by, would he be moved?
She raised her eyes and looked over.
However, unexpectedly, Gu Lin Chao did not even glance at the servant girl. He instead stepped forward and personally helped Housekeeper Chen up.
“Uncle Chen doesn’t need to be polite.”
Housekeeper Chen raised his sleeve to wipe the corners of his eyes and said with concern, “Your Majesty must be tired from the long journey.”
“Good.” Gu Lin Chao’s tone was still light, but Wen Qi Qi could still feel that his attitude toward this Housekeeper Chen was slightly different.
She was a little surprised.
She didn’t expect that a cold and noble person like Gu Lin Chao would treat a subordinate with such a mild attitude.
She couldn’t help but look at Housekeeper Chen a few more times.
When facing Gu Lin Chao, there was a heartfelt concern on his face, so he must not be an ordinary subordinate.
Only then did Housekeeper Chen see Wen Qi Qi, but his face was much colder as he spoke, “This old slave has seen Your Highness.”
Wen Qi Qi’s lips lifted into a smile, “Uncle Chen.”
Housekeeper Chen nodded his head and quickly looked away. Obviously, he had no good feelings for her.
Wen Qi Qi was disappointed.
However, she naturally knew why Housekeeper Chen had such an attitude.
This was still the fruit of the original owner’s seeds.
After the marriage between the original owner and Gu Lin Chao, because Gu Lin Chao was not in the house, Wen Qi Qi was a bit of a bully and tormented the servants a lot.
Even Housekeeper Chen had to suffer a lot at her hands.
So now when he sees her, he naturally won’t have a good look.
Well, she has to take the blame for the original owner.
