Chapter 22: Good-looking and sweet-talking
When Wen Qi Qi walked into the Shen Xiang courtyard, a few lazy maids were hiding in the corner chatting. Only when she walked in did they see her and hurriedly came forward to salute, “This slave servant has seen Your Highness.”
Wen Qi Qi nodded and ordered, “Prepare hot water for a bath, and prepare some breakfast.”
The maids were relieved to see that they were not in trouble, so they hurriedly answered and went away to prepare.
Wen Qi Qi sighed and went into the middle room.
The maids were quite fast and quickly brought in the hot water.
When Wen Qi Qi finished bathing, her breakfast was also delivered.
She sat at the table in her fluffy bedclothes and had some breakfast.
She intended to go to sleep later.
She didn’t sleep all night last night, so she was a feeling sleepy at the moment.
But after she finished her breakfast, she was about to go to sleep when Gu Lin Chao sent Wang Hou De over to the Shen Xiang courtyard to deliver a message.
“Wang Fei, the regent asks you to get ready and enter the palace with him later.”
Wen Qi Qi took a look at him and asked, “You are Wang Hou De?”
Wang Hou De smiled and was a bit surprised, “Your Highness knows the servant?”
Wen Qi Qi nodded and said with a smile, “Of course I know. Eunuch Wang is a very useful person beside the Regent and has been serving the regent with all his heart and soul. Even if there is no merit, there is hard work. Even if I don’t know others, I must also know that Eunuch Wang ah.”
When Wang Hou De heard that, his whole person is a little floating and he modestly waved his hand, “Your Highness is too much. Serving the Regent well is part of this servant’s job. It really does not deserve such a compliment from Your Highness.”
Although he said so, the corners of his mouth are about to spread to his ears, and he thought to himself: The Princess is not so disagreeable.
The key was that she was good-looking and sweet-talking.
The Grand Empress Dowager has a good eye.
“His Majesty has just returned from the border. Are we going to the palace this time to pay our respects to the Grand Empress Dowager?” Wen Qi Qi pretended not to see the smile that seemed to be spilling out of his face and asked casually.
Wang Hou De nodded, “Exactly.” The Grand Empress Dowager is old and not well. Don’t look at the Regent’s cold nature, but in his heart, he also misses the Grand Empress Dowager. This time, he even came back and asked for medicine for the Grand Empress Dowager.
Wen Qi Qi nodded, “Thank you for informing me, I will change my clothes and go to see the Regent.”
“This servant excuses himself.” Wang Hou De bowed to her and retreated.
Since she was going to see the Grand Empress Dowager, Wen Qi Qi picked out a plain, modest outfit and changed into it.
When Wen Qi Qi finished getting ready and went to the entrance of the residence, Gu Lin Chao was already there.
He had changed into a dark green robe and his hair was still tied up, causing him to look very dignified and reserved, yet with an obvious sense of detachment.
“Your Majesty.” Wen Qi Qi walked over and curtsied towards him.
“Go away.” Gu Lin Chao said indifferently.
Wen Qi Qi straightened up and subconsciously took two quick steps forward and walked to his side.
Gu Lin Chao glanced at her with a slightly unhappy expression.
Wen Qi Qi blinked her eyes, pretending not to know, “What’s wrong with the regent?”
“Three feet.” Gu Lin Chao looked at her with clear and cold eyebrows.
“Oh.” Wen Qi Qi nodded but did not feel self-conscious enough to step back.
Gu Lin Chao looked at her patiently, “Don’t you understand?”
Wen Qi Qi nodded and shook her head, “I just think that we are husband and wife, so we shouldn’t be so out of touch.”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at her, “That’s only what you think.”
“Husband and wife are one, so what’s the difference between them?” Wen Qi Qi took another step forward and simply took his hand, “What do you think, Your Majesty?”
Gu Lin Chao’s body froze, this woman ……
“Let go or not?”
“Believe it or not, I will hold onto you directly?”
