Among the people present, only the envoys from Huijiang could not understand the poem Wen Qi Qi had just recited.
Noticing the strange atmosphere, he couldn’t help but ask, “The Regent Consort hasn’t said what she will use to serve the wine.”
As soon as the envoy’s words left his mouth, he elicited loud laughter from the entire audience.
“Hasn’t the Regent Consort just made it very clear? They still don’t understand.”
As the envoys were feeling baffled, they heard Gu Lin Chao order in a deep voice, “Someone, fetch the luminous cup.”
The envoys were still baffled.
Until the palace servants brought in the luminous cup.
Gu Lin Chao took the cup and handed it to Wen Qi Qi.
Wen Qi Qi took it and slowly poured the wine that the envoy had just brought to her into the cup.
This cup is made of white jade. It has thin walls and is crystal clear, so when the wine is poured into it, the red liquid is reflected through the cup.
Wen Qi Qi only poured half a cup, and then picked up the glass and shook it gently.
The Huijiang envoys looked at it with open mouths and amazement.
“It’s so beautiful.”
“Wine should be served in such a beautiful glass.”
“I have been drinking wine for so many years, but I never knew that the color of wine could be so beautiful, that color is so pretty.”
Wen Qi Qi glanced at them and laughed in her heart, but said with some regret on the surface, “If the glass glows at night, it will be really beautiful. Standing under the moonlight, holding the luminous cup, shaking it slowly and tasting it, that would be a great pleasure in life.”
The crowd was instantly brought into the mood she described and could not help but yearn for it.
“After the wine is poured out, you can’t drink it right away, you should wake it up first and wait for its flavor to blend with the air, then shake it slowly to taste the mellow flavor of the wine.” Wen Qi Qi then said.
It took a long time for the ambassadors to come back to their senses, and their eyes were full of admiration, “The Regent Consort is the one who really knows about wine, and we are willing to bow down to her.”
“No way, no way, I have made you all laugh.” Wen Qi Qi elegantly waved her hand. Her gaze swept over the crowd of noble ladies in the field who were still secretly laughing at her in the front, and with a twist of the luminous cup in her hand, she suddenly presented it in front of Gu Lin Chao.
“Your Majesty, please drink.”
Gu Lin Chao froze, and his gaze fell on the bowl of the girl’s white and slender hand.
At this moment, she held a white jade wine cup in her hand, which set off her fair and crystal clear complexion. It was almost possible to see the green veins under the skin.
“Your Majesty?” Wen Qi Qi prodded again.
Gu Lin Chao returned to his senses and met her glistening peach blossom eyes. His heart palpitated and he reached out to take the cup.
“Your Majesty, sip it, so that you can taste the wine better.” Wen Qi Qi reminded him in a small voice.
“Mm.” Gu Lin Chao answered in a low voice.
The noble ladies who were not far saw this and were a little resentful.
They originally wanted to see Wen Qi Qi make a fool of herself, but they didn’t expect that she would not make a fool of herself, and the Regent’s attitude towards her wasn’t as cold as it was said to be.
The noblewomen were sour in their hearts.
The officials of Daye, on the other hand, had a feeling of raising their eyebrows.
They were just laughed at by the ambassadors of the Huijiang, and now that the Regent Princess has given them a chance to breathe, they instantly feel that the rumors of the past are not true.
How is the Regent Consort brainless?
It is clear that she is beautiful and smart.
“Haha, the Regent Princess makes this Prince admire. This cup of wine, this Prince will toast you.” At this time, Tuo Qingye suddenly spoke out and stood up with a glass of wine.
Wen Qi Qi was just about to speak, but Gu Lin Chao took the first step and said, “Ben Wang’s Princess is not strong enough to drink, so Ben Wang will drink for her.”
Wen Qi Qi: “……”
No, when was she not strong enough to drink? He said it as if he knew her very well.
