Although the sun is shining today, it’s spring, and the temperature was still low.
She looked at Gu Lin Chao strangely.
Gu Ling Chao’s movement of wiping his sweat stopped.
Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi hurriedly withdrew her gaze.
At this time, Xiao Yan walked over.
Looking at the empty seat between them, he was just about to take a seat when Gu Lin Chao gave him a look and he stopped moving.
“Okay, okay, okay, I won’t sit, okay?” Although Xiao Yan always took advantage of this nephew, but in his heart, he was actually extremely afraid of him.
He turned his head to look at Wen Qi Qi, his black eyes brightened and he did not hesitate to praise her, “This imperial dress of my niece-in-law’s is really beautiful. It is dignified, yet refined, and matches you very well.”
Wen Qi Qi was not happy with him at all. Additionally, she was still holding a grudge against him for throwing her onto the wall yesterday.
But after hearing his compliments, she couldn’t keep a straight face anymore and said with a twinkle in her eye, “Uncle Xiao has a good eye.”
Xiao Yan was in a good mood when he heard this, ” It’s still Qi Qi who understands things, unlike someone who has never called me Uncle.”
The “Someone” glanced at him lightly and he immediately quieted down.
Wen Qi Qi smilingly extended her hand towards him, “Uncle seems to have not given me a meeting gift yet.”
Xiao Yan was stunned. Looking at the other party’s tender white hand, he reached out and nodded at her, “You girl, so practical, but I like …… uh!”
Before he finished his sentence, he suddenly grabbed his neck, unable to speak. He turned his head and stared at Gu Lin Chao, “Uh uh uh……”
Wen Qi Qi looked at him in surprise, and then looked at Gu Lin Chao.
Could it be that Gu Lin Chao had done something?
For example, he had touched his mute acupuncture point or something.
But Xiao Yan didn’t say anything, so why would he hit his mute point?
When she was puzzled, a beautiful round jade pendant suddenly appeared in front of her eyes.
She froze, raised her eyes to look at the man, blinked and said uncertainly: “Is it …… for, for me?”
There was a hint of impatience hidden between Gu Lin Chao’s eyebrows, and he turned his face away, suddenly releasing his hand.
Wen Qi Qi scrambled to catch it, and the warm touch in her hand made her heart cry out. What a close call.
Gu Lin Chao, this bad guy, suddenly loosened his grip. wasn’t he afraid of breaking this jade?
“Whatever you want, you can talk to this King, no need to ask others for it.”
Gu Lin Chao’s low cold voice, slowly sounded.
Wen Qi Qi’s beautiful eyes widened in surprise, and she thought she was hallucinating.
“Oh, I know.” After a long time, she pursed her lips and smiled, before putting the precious jade pendant away close to her body.
Although she did not understand jade, this jade was warm and smooth to the touch. Plus, it was still Gu Lin Chao’s stuff, so she thought it was of extraordinary value.
Gu Lin Chao saw her action out of the corner of his eye. He suddenly felt his lips were a little dry and picked up the cup on the table and drank some water.
Xiao Yan looked at the couple that acted as if no one else was around, knocked on the table in exasperation, and pointed to his throat.
Gu Lin Chao glanced at him and suddenly flicked a wisp of Qi energy towards him.
Xiao Yan was finally able to speak, but did not dare to say anything more. He gave Gu Lin Chao a look of reckoning, and went back to his seat.
Not long after, the Prince of Huijiang and a group of envoys, accompanied by officials from the Ministry of Rites, also arrived together.
Seeing Gu Lin Chao and Wen Qi Qi, Tuo Qingye was just about to go forward when the sound of eunuchs singing suddenly came from outside the venue.
“His Imperial Majesty has arrived–“
“The Empress Dowager has arrived–“
Once the two arrived, everyone except Gu Lin Chao and Wen Qi Qi rose and saluted.
However, the people were more curious about the woman following Gu Heng.
The woman looked very frail, her eyes were always downcast. She seemed to be a bit afraid of others, and was wearing a light pink dress as she followed closely behind Gu Heng.
