After following Gu Lin Chao into the Regent’s residence, Wen Qi Qi remembered one thing.
She had no idea which courtyard the original owner lived in. Additionally, when she had just returned from the Wen Mansion, Lu Qiao had to pack her things, so she did not come back with her.
If she asked someone now, wouldn’t it arouse suspicion?
She frowned slightly and looked sideways at Gu Lin Chao.
Seeing him walking in the direction of the left, she hurriedly chased after him.
“Where is the Regent going?”
Gu Lin Chao looked at the woman who suddenly came over and his eyebrows unconsciously knitted. “Three feet.”
Wen Qi Qi was stunned, “What?”
“Stay away from this King.” Gu Lin Chao’s voice was clear and cold.
Only then did Wen Qi Qi understand what he had just said. He wanted her to retreat three feet away.
Ah, this ……
She blinked her eyes, coughed lightly, and said bravely, “What if I don’t? Has Your Majesty forgotten? We are husband and wife… Your Majesty should not treat me with the same attitude as an outsider.”
Gu Lin Chao’s expression did not fluctuate. His eyes glanced at her extremely lightly, before he turned around and walked away.
Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi twisted her foot on purpose and shouted “Ouch”.
She attempted to use the tried and true dog plot in TV dramas to make the other party go soft and then carry her back to the courtyard.
However, the plot she imagined did not happen. Gu Lin Chao did not even look back and quickly walked away.
Wen Qi Qi: “……”
At this moment, a snicker sounded behind her.
Wen Qi Qi frowned and saw that the person in the lead was the servant girl who had just tried to seduce Gu Lin Chao outside the door. She was followed by several young maids, and the laughter just now was coming from several of them.
“This slave servant girl has seen the Royal Consort.” Several maidservants saw her looking over and had to curtsy towards her, but their attitude was somewhat arrogant.
Wen Qi Qi raised her eyebrows slightly.
As expected, where there were women, there would be no peace.
She was at least the Regent’s Consort, but these maids in front of her obviously did not take her into consideration. They were a bit too bold.
However, the reason for them being so reckless is that they must have seen the way Gu Lin Chao treated her just now.
From their point of view, since Gu Lin Chao treated her coldly, they thought she was not to Gu Lin Chao’s liking, so they dared to treat her with contempt.
She laughed at their ignorance and foolishness.
Even if Gu Lin Chao treats her coldly, she is still the Regent Princess. How can they dare to stand on her head?
However, she was new here and did not want to bother with them. Moreover, since she did not know how to return to her courtyard, these few people appeared at the right time.
“You come here.” She waved towards the maid who had shown her face in front of Gu Lin Chao.
The servant girl had a decent smile on her face, “Does Her Highness have any orders?” The tone seemed to be respectful, but in reality, she did not come forward.
“This Regent Princess has an injured foot and can’t walk. Come and help this Regent Princess back to her courtyard.” Wen Qi Qi said with a smile, looking gentle and harmless.
The servant girl smiled and glanced at her foot.
Just now, she and some other servant girls were standing behind her, so they naturally knew that she was pretending to have injured her foot.
If she hadn’t injured her foot, why did she ask her to help her?
Or did she want to take the opportunity to teach her a lesson?
When the servant girl thought of this matter, she snickered in her heart and was somewhat unimpressed.
“Your Highness, sister Mei Yan still has to serve the Regent. It’s better for this servant girl to help you.” Not waiting for that servant girl to speak, one of the long-faced servants behind her spoke first. Her words seemed helpful, however, there was an obvious provocative intent.
