The carriage drove directly into the Imperial Palace and stopped outside the gate of Jing Ci Palace.
“Your Highness, we’ve arrived at the palace.” Wang Hou De stood by the carriage and said respectfully.
However, there was no response from the carriage for a long time, and no one could see Wen Qi Qi come out.
When Wang Hou De saw this, he had to call again.
But the result was still the same, the carriage was still silent.
Wang Hou De was a bit surprised, could it be that the Princess was asleep inside?
Thinking it was so, he increased his voice, “Princess, we’re at Jing Ci Palace, please get off the carriage.”
After saying that, he waited for a moment, but there was still no movement within the carriage.
He was just about to open the carriage door to check when Gu Lin Chao walked over.
“What’s going on?”
Wang Hou De quickly turned around and reported, “Master, the Princess seems to have fallen asleep in the carriage. This servant has been calling her, but the Princess has not gotten off.”
Gu Lin Chao frowned, what is that woman up to again?
After thinking about it, he finally took a step forward.
The door of the carriage was opened, and he saw that Wen Qi Qi had fallen asleep against the side of the carriage, and was sleeping very deeply.
Wang Hou De smiled and said, “The Princess was really asleep.”
Gu Lin Chao raised his hand and knocked on the carriage door, “Wen Qi Qi, get off the carriage.”
“Don’t make any noise!” Wen Qi Qi turned around impatiently.
But she didn’t remember that she was still in the carriage, and since she was sleeping in a sitting position, when she turned around, her whole body fell to the carriage floor with a “thud”.
Since the floor was covered with thick felt carpet, it didn’t hurt, but after Wen Qi Qi opened her eyes, she couldn’t react to what happened.
A muffled laugh came. When Wen Qi Qi came back to her senses, she propped herself up on the carpet and sat up.
When she turned her head, she saw Gu Lin Chao standing outside the carriage, while Wang Hou De was holding in his laughter with a red face.
Gu Lin Chao had a shallow smile at the corner of his mouth, “Since you’re awake, come down.”
At this time, Wen Qi Qi felt even duller, but also knew what had happened.
Thinking about the stupid things she had done, she felt a bit chagrined and left the carriage with her head bowed.
Wang Hou De had already asked someone to put a stool beside the carriage.
Only when she tried to get off, she accidentally stepped on the hem of her skirt, and her whole body lunged forward uncontrollably.
“Your Highness, be careful!” Wang Hou De shouted out in alarm.
Gu Lin Chao, who had already walked ahead, heard the voice and turned to look. He saw that the girl, who was about to fall suddenly brace herself on the ground with one hand, then flipped over beautiful and managed to land on both feet.
Gu Lin Chao was stunned.
Wang Hou De rubbed his eyes, thinking he had seen a mirage.
Si Yi’s cold face flashed with surprise.
“Pa, pa ……”
At this moment, the sound of applause abruptly sounded.
The group looked over and saw several people walking over to their side.
The first one was a teenager who was dressed in bright yellow dragon robes, it was the current Emperor Gu Heng.
He was still very young, only 17 years old this year, but with the dragon robe on his body, his temperament looks more stable and sophisticated and he had a handsome, slender posture.
The applause was not from him, but from the man who was one step behind him.
The man’s features are handsome, with oblique bangs in front of his forehead. He is wearing a wide purple robe, giving him a sense of elegance and spontaneity.
“The Princess is so skilled!” The man smilingly looked at Wen Qi Qi and his eyes flashed with amazement.
Wen Qi Qi was not sure of his identity and was about to speak when Gu Lin Chao suddenly turned back and stood in front of her, blocking the man’s line of sight, “We have made Duke Xiao laugh.”
Xiao Yan froze and laughed, “The Regent has only just returned and has become so affectionate with his Wang Fei. As an uncle, I am very pleased.”
