Back in her bedchamber, Empress Dowager Guo sat in front of the dressing mirror. She looked at herself in the mirror, and couldn’t help but raise her hand and touch her face, then sighed quietly.
She is not old and her looks are not bad, but ……
The lush and beautiful face of Wen Qi Qi suddenly flashed in her mind ……
Even she had to admit that Wen Qi Qi was really beautiful to the extreme, and she was so young, only a teenager. She was a perfect match for Gu Lin Chao.
The fact that Gu Lin Chao has never had a woman around, now that he has married such a wife, he must be very doting, right?
When she thought of this, she felt a little sour in her heart.
The Grand Empress Dowager is really good to Gu Lin Chao, even the wife chosen for him is a rare beauty on earth. Even if the beauty has no brain, she is beautiful and young, and even just looking at her is pleasing to the soul.
Gu Lin Chao himself is brilliant, whether his wife is smart or not, what does it matter?
At least, the Grand Empress Dowager thinks so, right?
She knew that she had treated Gu Ling Chao too badly in the past and wanted to make it up to him in her old age.
But she had really chosen a too beautiful wife for Gu Lin Chao.
Empress Dowager Guo’s eyes were filled with gloom.
The Regent’s Residence.
Gu Ling Chao just stepped into the door of the house, he saw Wen Qi Qi pacing anxiously there.
As soon as she saw him return, she ran forward, “Your Majesty, how are things going?”
Gu Lin Chao paused slightly, “What?”
Wen Qi Qi said, “Did you stop the Emperor from accepting Wen Ruyi?”
“What the Emperor decided, this King cannot interfere.” Gu Lin Chao said indifferently.
When Wen Qi Qi heard this, she blurted out, “Gu Lin Chao, you are too useless.”
Gu Lin Chao’s handsome face was dark and sullen. This woman, who gave her the guts? He was about to reprimand her, but heard her say, “Aren’t you the Regent? The Emperor still dares to disobey you? You really disappoint me too much.” After saying that, she ran away in a huff.
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
Wang Hou De and Si Yi took several steps backwards, pretending that they were deaf and heard nothing.
Gu Lin Chao came back to his senses and the veins in the corner of his forehead throbbed.
This woman, Wen Qi Qi, really needs to be disciplined!
“Pass on this King’s order, the Princess does not know the etiquette, from today, she is confined to Shen Xiang courtyard. She must copy the scriptures a hundred times, and she is not allowed to leave Shen Xiang courtyard without this King’s order.” Gu Lin Chao finished in a deep voice, then went to the study.
Wang Hou De, under great pressure, went to Shen Xiang courtyard and conveyed Gu Lin Chao’s words.
As soon as Wen Qi Qi returned to Shen Xiang courtyard, she grabbed an apple to nibble.
She was really disappointed that Gu Lin Chao had not been able to throw Wen Ruyi out of the Palace.
As if she was competing with someone, she chewed the apple with a loud sound.
After listening to Wang Hou De’s words, with a ” splat “, the apple in her hand, fell to the ground.
“Eunuch Wang, I didn’t just say anything disrespectful to the King, right?” She calmed down and began to think about whether she had just gone too far.
Wang Hou De looked at her sympathetically and nodded, “You did.”
“What did I say?” Wen Qi Qi’s eyes widened.
Wang Hou De shook his head and sighed, “Your Highness should stay in the Shen Xiang Courtyard and copy the scriptures these few days.”
Wen Qi Qi asked, “Then how long do I have to be grounded?”
“This …… depends on the mood of the master.” Wang Hou De said with difficulty.
“What if he is in a bad mood for the rest of his life, do I have to be trapped here to die?” Wen Qi Qi wept.
