Gu Lin Chao glanced at her and suddenly pushed the bowl full of dishes in front of her.
“Princess Consort has worked hard, you eat more.”
Wen Qi Qi: “……”
Looking at the girl’s frozen off expression, the corner of Gu Lin Chao’s mouth slowly curved up into an arc and he picked up his bowl and chopsticks again to eat.
Wen Qi Qi picked up her chopsticks. She looked at the bowl of miscellaneous dishes piled up together and had no appetite at all, “Your Majesty, this Consort……”
“Princess Consort may not know, there is a shortage of food in the army. If a soldier dares to waste food, according to military regulations, that person will be subject to military justice.” Gu Lin Chao suddenly said.
The words that Wen Qi Qi wanted to say were suddenly stuck in her throat.
Gu Lin Chao is clearly threatening her.
Looking at the man’s cold eyebrows, she suddenly felt that this guy must have a black heart.
“Quickly eat while it’s hot, otherwise it will taste bad if it’s cold.” Gu Lin Chao “kindly” reminded.
Wen Qi Qi gripped the chopsticks tightly, suddenly felt that she had brought this on herself, if she had known, she would not have given him so many dishes.
She wanted to cry, but could only bury her head and eat bitterly.
Gu Lin Chao glanced at her and a smile crossed his face as he lowered his head and ate gracefully.
Si Yi, who was standing at the side, had shock cross his face.
The master, who never allows others to come near, actually let the Princess sit down and eat with him. Was this the promised way to let the Princess come and serve?
The room was quiet.
When Wen Qi Qi was halfway through eating, she couldn’t help but look up at the man across the table.
Seeing him eating a meal with such elegance and sophistication, she couldn’t help but feel a little jealous in her heart.
“What are you looking at this king for?” Gu Lin Chao suddenly spoke out.
When she was caught peeking at others, Wen Qi Qi’s face was hot and she said vaguely, “Your Majesty, I really can’t eat anymore, can I not eat anymore?”
Gu Ling Chao raised his eyes and glanced at her. Seeing that she was looking at himself with watery eyes, as if she was being coquettish, he pursed his lips and reprimanded in a low voice, “Petulant!”
Wen Qi Qi: “……”
Is she being petulant? Is she?
Just as she was about to continue to be petulant, she suddenly heard Gu Lin Chao say in a stern tone, “Do you know how many people outside can’t even eat? This King hates to waste food!”
Wen Qi Qi was stunned and felt a slight sense of guilt in her heart.
But Gu Lin Chao was so strange. As a Prince, it was surprising that he would hate wasting food. Was it because he was in the army?
She opened her mouth and finally changed her tone: “Your Majesty, I really can’t eat anymore, do you think I can take these meals back to Shen Xiang courtyard? I promise I won’t waste it and will continue to eat it in the evening.” After a pause, she also assured, “And I will not waste food next time …… hiccup!”
Before the words were finished, she suddenly hiccuped.
Wen Qi Qi was startled and covered her mouth in a panic.
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
Wen Qi Qi’s face flushed red and she panicked and held her breath in an attempt to press it down.
But the more she suppressed it, the more intensively the hiccups became.
“Hiccup, hiccup, hiccup ……”
Wen Qi Qi’s face turned green.
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze held a trace of a smile, and seeing her good attitude in admitting her mistake, he did not make things difficult for her, and only said, “Since you really can’t eat anymore, then forget it, but next time, don’t spoil the food again.”
“That means …… hiccup, I can …… hiccup not have to eat these meals again today …… hiccup?” Wen Qi Qi’s heart was happy, and she hurriedly asked for confirmation. But because of the hiccups, she stumbled over her words.
Seeing the girl’s watery, hopeful peach blossom eyes, Gu Lin Chao lowered his eyes and answered in a low voice, “Mm.”
