Gu Lin Chao’s action of getting the handkerchief paused, and finally he did not take the handkerchief out.
He coldly glanced at Wang Hou De.
Wang Hou De’s spine was cold, and he looked back. Strange, why did he suddenly feel so cold?
The palace banquet lasted until the afternoon, before it ended.
Wen Qi Qi went to change back into her Imperial dress.
When she came out, Gu Lin Chao was waiting for her.
“Is it time to leave the Palace now?”
“Going to pay my respects to Mother.” Gu Lin Chao’s tone was light.
“Oh.” Wen Qi Qi answered and followed him to Jing Ci Palace.
When she reached the entrance, she ran into Xiao Yan.
“Niece-in-law, you have really impressed me today.”
Wen Qi Qi “eh” sounded, and she deliberately said: “You being impressed, how come I didn’t see it?”
Xiao Yan was choked and couldn’t help but give her a glance, “I was complimenting you.”
“So many people have praised me, it’s not different from Uncle Xiao.” Wen Qi Qi shrugged her shoulders.
“Hey, you girl, are really not modest.” Xiao Yan was exasperated by her and turned his head to look at Gu Lin Chao, “Heng Zhi, you have to control this wife of yours, she is about to ascend to the sky.”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at him, “You’d better mind your own business.”
Wen Qi Qi also said, “Yes, you should take care of yourself. You’re so old and you’re still a loner. Be careful of your grandfather and his family crawling out of the ground and choking you.”
Xiao Yan wanted to reprimand her, but when he heard what she said later, he got a chill on his feet and said with a bluff: “What are you talking about in broad daylight?”
Wen Qi Qi wondered, “Why are you so fainthearted? Have you done something wrong to your grandfather?”
Xiao Yan supported his forehead and said patiently, “Forget it, I won’t bother with you, a junior. I still have something to do, so I won’t go to see the Grand Empress Dowager.” After saying that, he turned around and slipped away.
Wen Qi Qi looked puzzled, “What’s wrong with him?”
“He’s afraid of ghosts.” Gu Lin Chao suddenly said.
The corners of Wen Qi Qi’s mouth twitched. She didn’t expect Xiao Yan, who was so big and tall, to be afraid of ghosts.
She was a bit incredulous.
When they entered Jing Ci Palace, the Grand Empress Dowager was already waiting for the two of them.
“Mother.” The two bowed in turn.
The Grand Empress Dowager smiled and waved at Wen Qi Qi.
Wen Qi Qi walked forward.
“I heard that just now, you won a fight against the Princess of Huijiang?” The Grand Empress Dowager took her hand with a benevolent face.
Wen Qi Qi smiled and was a little surprised.
“Where did Mother hear that?”
The Grand Empress Dowager smiled, “Now the whole Palace has spread the word. The Regent Consort has not only convinced the envoys of Huijiang, but even the unruly Princess of Huijiang is no match for you.”
Wen Qi Qi wrinkled her nose and lowered her head in embarrassment, “Actually, it’s not that exaggerated.”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at her.
This girl is obviously very satisfied, but she is pretending!
The more the Grand Empress Dowager looked at her, the more satisfied she was, and said with a smile, “You, this child, is really attractive. Forget it this time, but the next time there is such a thing, you can not go forward again.” With that, she looked at her belly with deep meaning.
Wen Qi Qi was stunned.
The Grand Empress Dowager quickly averted her gaze and explained to Gu Lin Chao, “Chao’er, after all, Qi Qi is young, so you should take care of her more.”
“I know.” Gu Lin Chao’s voice was faint.
The Grand Empress Dowager didn’t care, and said to Momo Zeng, “Bring the soup quickly.”
“Yes.” Momo Zeng smilingly went down.
Wen Qi Qi was now afraid when she heard about the soup.
The Grand Empress Dowager couldn’t have prepared some strange soup for the two of them again, could she?
