Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi did not press further, but only instructed, “Then you must remember to eat ah. Your Majesty has mentioned that he hates wasting food, so you can’t waste this food.”
Gu Lin Chao listened to her whiny tone, his forehead veins throbbed and he said impatiently, “This King knows.”
Only then did Wen Qi Qi carry the empty food box and prepare to leave.
When she walked to the door, she suddenly thought of something and turned back to ask: “What would Your Majesty like to eat at noon, I will order the kitchen to make it.”
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze fell on the files on the table, “No need.”
Wen Qi Qi saw him look as if he was a stranger, and secretly glanced down, “Then okay.” All right, who let others in power act a little cold. Since she decided to hug his legs, she could also stand this cold face.
Only when she was about to walk away did Gu Lin Chao raise his head. His eyes swept over the breakfast on the table.
Wang Hou De said with a smile, “Your Highness, the Princess is very concerned about you ah.”
Gu Lin Chao’s lips pursed tightly, his voice was clear and cold, “To be attentive without a cause is to be treacherous.”
Wang Hou De: “……”
Wen Qi Qi’s beautiful peach blossom eyes, slightly widened, looked at Gu Lin Chao incredulously. Although she did offer hospitality with a purpose, it was embarrassing to be said so in person.
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
Wang Hou De: “……”
The atmosphere was a bit stagnant and awkward for a while.
Wang Hou De forced a smile and said, “That, Princess, His Majesty is not talking about you.”
Gu Lin Chao faintly glanced at him. Didn’t he know that an explanation was the same as a cover-up? And it was so obvious that he was talking about her.
Wen Qi Qi raised her eyebrows, coughed lightly and said against her will, “I know.”
Wang Hou De secretly sighed with relief and hurriedly withdrew from the door, leaving space for the two.
The room fell silent again, and Gu Lin Chao broke the silence and asked, “Is there something wrong?”
Wen Qi Qi complained about him in her heart. He was talking about her behind her back and in front of her and he didn’t feel guilty?
“I just heard from Second Brother that the Regent went to our family’s village manor last night.” Wen Qi Qi simply said straightforwardly.
“Yes.” Gu Lin Chao nodded his head.
“I heard that when you left with the Emperor, you also took Wen Ruyi with you.” Wen Qi Qi sized him up without moving. He should not have known that it was Wen Ruyi, otherwise he would not have let Gu Heng bring Wen Ruyi back to the Palace.
“Wen Ruyi?” Gu Lin Chao frowned.
“This is my third sister, she is not right-minded, so my parents sent her to the village, but unexpectedly, last night, she was brought to the Palace by the Emperor.” Wen Qi Qi said with some concern, “Your Majesty, do you think she will harm the Emperor?”
Gu Lin Chao’s eyes flashed with a trace of surprise, then frowned, “It was her?”
Wen Qi Qi sighed, “It seems that Your Majesty doesn’t know it’s her. That’s right, her heart is not right. If Your Majesty knew, then how would you let her follow the Emperor into the Palace?”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at her and finally understood, why she suddenly being attentive today.
“Understood, this matter, this King will handle it.”
Wen Qi Qi sniffed and said sensibly, “Mm, then I will retire.” With Gu Lin Chao intervening, Wen Ruyi shouldn’t be able to stay in the Palace, right?
It was only one night. There was no way that Gu Heng would be so affectionate to her that he would have to go against Gu Lin Chao.
When she thought of this, she was relieved.
Looking at her walk out, Gu Lin Chao also did not have the heart to deal with government affairs. He ordered someone to prepare a horse and went to the Palace.
The Palace, Nine Stars Hall.
When Gu Heng returned from court, he learned that his mother, Empress Dowager Guo, had come over.
When he thought of the girl he brought back last night, his heart sank and he walked in quickly.
