In the study.
Gu Lin Chao sat behind the desk. His face was as heavy as water as he looked at the woman who had her head hanging down the whole time.
If he hadn’t seen it with his own eyes, he wouldn’t have believed that she was so wild.
Rude words came out of her mouth, and her behavior was like that of a shrew, and she was sitting on a wall ……
At the very least she came from a famous family. Even if she has no talent, she should at least have been educated since childhood and should know the rules and manners, but –
The way she behaved today really overturned his perception.
After a long time, he said in a deep voice: “Wen Qi Qi, do you have anything to say?”
Wen Qi Qi knew that she had probably, probably, really angered Gu Lin Chao today, but she couldn’t be blamed for this matter, right?
“Believe it or not, it really wasn’t me who wanted to climb the wall, it was your thieving uncle……” When she came into contact with the man’s cold eyes, she automatically changed her words, “It was your uncle who put me up there.”
“You still have the nerve to mention it?” Gu Lin Chao handsome face was grim, “Shouldn’t you be staying in the Shen Xiang Courtyard copying scriptures. Even if Xiao Yan doesn’t understand the etiquette, he can’t run to your courtyard to catch you.”
“I was tired of copying scriptures, so I wanted to go out to get some air, who knew that I would run into Xiao Yan that unlucky man……” As she came into contact with the man’s non-smiling eyes, her voice stopped abruptly again.
Gu Lin Chao looked at her in disbelief. She had made a mistake, but she could still be so righteous.
“Do you have some misunderstanding about grounding?” Gu Lin Chao was furious but laughed.
Wen Qi Qi was a little creeped out by him. Now he might as well not laugh because it’s creepy to be laughing like that, okay?
Of course, she did not dare to say it directly.
“The prisoner still has to let off steam.” She muttered in a small voice.
But Gu Lin Chao’s ears are too good. He heard the whole thing without missing a word.
He sneered, “You compare yourself to a prisoner, do you think this King is too lenient with you?”
“Of course not.” Wen Qi Qi waved her hands and dropped her face. Her heart so tired.
She really just went out for a breath of fresh air. If she had known that it would cause so much trouble, she would not have gone out.
“Then what do you want?” She simply broke the pot.
There were two options; to admit it or continue defending it. She might as well show remorse and get it over with.
Gu Lin Chao saw her look of defiance and suddenly said: “It seems that grounding and copying scriptures are useless to you. This King will invite a Momo back from the Palace tomorrow to teach you the rules properly.”
Wen Qi Qi was shocked, than she took out her hand, “Do not ah, Your Majesty …… I promise not to go anywhere in the future. I’ll just stay in the courtyard to copy the scriptures, really, I promise.”
“Do you really realize your mistake?” Gu Lin Chao pursed his lips and asked.
Wen Qi Qi nodded her head, admitting her mistakes, more than ever, “It’s true, I have deeply realized my mistakes, I will definitely correct them and not let Your Majesty worry about them.” Saying that, she also shed a string of tears of remorse.
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
Looking at the tears that flowed down her face with true emotion, he wrinkled his eyebrows. It seemed that she was really afraid and recognized her mistake, and his voice unconsciously eased up a bit, “Since you know, go back and stay well. Without this King’s approval, you are not allowed to step out of the courtyard.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.” Wen Qi Qi saluted, and was about to retreat.
“Wait a moment.” Gu Lin Chao suddenly called out to her.
“What else does Your Majesty have to say?” Wen Qi Qi resisted the urge to curse and spoke in a gentle voice.
