Gu Lin Chao sat on his horse and looked their way.
When he saw a woman sitting in front of Gu Heng, he didn’t care. It was only that Gu Heng had reached the age where it was indeed time to choose a concubine.
“Depart.” He withdrew his gaze and ordered in a deep voice.
The team of men and horses, quickly left the manor.
Wen Ruyi glanced sideways at the manor behind her, and her mouth imperceptibly curved.
She had finally broken free from this cage.
She withdrew her gaze and looked at the man behind her, her gaze flickering.
She heard that some men, have a natural desire to protect a soft woman.
A man of Gu Heng’s status should be a man of this type, right?
“Cough!” She suddenly lowered her head and coughed.
Gu Heng saw this and held her shoulders, “Are you cold?”
“I’m okay.” She pretended to be strong and shook her head.
Gu Heng thought about it and simply took off his cloak and wrapped it all around her.
“Your body looks weak. When we return to the palace, I’ll have the Imperial Physician take a look at you.”
Wen Ruyi smiled. She raised a corner of the cloak and looked towards him, with doubt and surprise in her eyes.
Gu Heng felt that she should be confused about her identity, so he explained, “I am the Emperor of Daye. I am grateful to you for saving me today, so I will repay you well.”
Wen Ruyi’s face showed trepidation, “So you are the Emperor?”
“Mm.” Gu Heng said soothingly, “Don’t be afraid. You saved me, so you’re different from others, no need to be so formal. By the way, what is your name?”
Wen Ruyi shook her head blankly, “I don’t remember ……” saying that, she raised her hand and touched the back of her head, “When I woke up, I was injured here.”
When Gu Heng heard this, he felt even more pity for her.
He didn’t expect that she had memory loss and couldn’t even remember what her name was, yet she was still trapped in that manor.
Wen Ruyi’s eyes rolled, “Since you are the Emperor of Daye, why don’t you help me pick a name.”
Gu Heng froze, and then the corners of his mouth curled up in a smile, “Good.”
The bottom of Wen Ruyi’s eyes flashed with complacency.
The next day, at the Regent’s Residence.
Wen Qi Qi was still sleeping when Lu Qiao hastily knocked on the door of her room.
“Miss, your Second Brother is here to see you.”
Wen Qi Qi hugged the blanket and turned over with the displeasure of having her dreams disturbed.
“Why is that brat Wen Ting Xuan coming so early?”
“Miss, are you up?” Lu Qiao came in with a copper basin and saw that she was still lying on the bed, and was a bit helpless, “Your Second Brother has been here for a while. The servant girl saw that he looked a bit anxious and seemed to have an urgent matter.”
On hearing this, Wen Qi Qi reluctantly sat up, rubbed her drowsy eyes, and stretched her legs to reach the shoes under the bed.
Lu Qiao shook her head in amusement and went over to help her put on her shoes.
A quarter of an hour later, Wen Qi Qi was finally dressed and washed up. She went to see Wen Ting Xuan in the Flower Hall.
Wen Ting Xuan had already had two cups of tea before she appeared, and said with a grumble, “Your Highness is such a great host, making me wait for a long time.”
Wen Qi Qi sat down in the chair opposite him and said, “I was going to say something about you coming here so early in the morning and making me lose sleep, so you better have something important to say.”
Wen Ting Xuan was furious, “I am at the very least your Second Brother, yet you are speaking to me with such an attitude?”
“Okay, it’s my fault. What exactly do you want to tell me?” Wen Qi Qi said with a straight face.
“This morning, the people I arranged in the village came to report that Wen Ruyi was brought back to the Palace by the Emperor last night ……” When Wen Ting Xuan said this, he was a little afraid to look at her. It was his negligence that allowed Wen Ruyi to take advantage of the situation.
Although Wen Qi Qi had clearly told him not to be careless, in his opinion, what could happen to a weak woman who was trapped in the village? Therefore, he only sent two maids to watch Wen Ruyi, but unexpectedly, things still changed after all ……
