Gu Lin Chao glanced at the girl with her head hanging, pursed the corners of his lips, and finally drank the soup.
Wen Qi Qi accompanied the Grand Empress Dowager and spoke for a while longer, before the Grand Empress Dowager showed a weary look and said kindly, “Okay, you guys should leave the palace first. When you have time, remember to come and see me.”
“Yes.” Wen Qi Qi answered obediently, “Then I will go back with the Regent first.”
“Go on.” The Grand Empress Dowager waved her hand.
When she left Jing Ci Palace, Wen Qi Qi secretly exhaled. She was so close, she almost had to drink that soup.
If she drank it again, she wouldn’t be able to sleep again tonight.
“Just now, why did you lie to Mother?” Gu Lin Chao suddenly spoke.
Wen Qi Qi cocked her head to look at him, “Which matter does Your Majesty mean?”
Gu Lin Chao froze.
Thinking of what she said about the period issue, he pursed his lips.
Seeing him like this, Wen Qi Qi knew that he was afraid that he had difficulty in saying the word “period”.
This man is really pure-hearted.
“Naturally, it’s because I don’t want to drink that soup.” After a pause, she teased, “Moreover, how does Your Majesty know that I just lied to Mother and it’s not really here?”
Gu Lin Chao’s face stiffened.
Seeing his reaction like this, Wen Qi Qi burst out laughing, “Your Majesty wouldn’t still want to expose me in front of the Grand Empress Dowager, right?”
Gu Lin Chao looked at the girl’s pretty face, paused and reminded her, “If it wasn’t for you, this King wouldn’t have to drink that extra bowl.”
“You are my husband. What’s wrong with drinking an extra bowl for me?” Wen Qi Qi asked innocently and rhetorically, her long, curly eyelashes were blinking like the wings of a fluttering butterfly.
Gu Lin Chao’s fingers behind his back, tightly curled up, and his heart seemed to be touched by something, causing it to be itchy.
When this girl said the words ……
The corners of his lips curled up, he felt it was not very repulsive.
He did not speak again, and Wen Qi Qi regarded him as an acquiescence, so the mood was somewhat pleasant without an apparent reason.
The two of them walked along without a word, one after the other.
When they got into the carriage, Wen Qi Qi spontaneously found a corner to curl up in and closed her eyes to sleep.
In a few moments, she fell asleep.
Gu Lin Chao’s eyes fell on her face. When he saw how easily she fell asleep, he felt it was a little funny.
This girl always seems to be able to take things as they come. She has no sense of propriety, not at all like a noble girl from a high family.
All the families in the capital who have some family background are extraordinarily meticulous about the care of their children, and this has precisely contributed to their fussy and arrogant character.
Although she came from a wealthy family, he did not see any traces of arrogance in her. She was not fussy about anything, and even the last time, when he told her not to be wasteful, she did not retort, but even took the initiative to say that she would not be wasteful next time.
From her words and actions, one can’t tell that she is a daughter of a noble family who has been raised in a wealthy family and doesn’t know the hardships of the world.
Moreover, she speaks well, and also knows martial arts.
People say that Miss Wen is beautiful but has no talent, and in fact, judging from the scriptures she copied, her handwriting is really ugly.
But even so, she was unexpectedly able to compose poetry, knew wine, and spoke in a clear manner. Even the originally arrogant envoys of the Huijiang Kingdom were all subservient to her.
In this regard, he had doubts.
He felt that he had to get to know the Wen family again, as well as this little princess of his.
What kind of family could have raised such a girl?
Gu Lin Chao fell into deep thought.
But not long after, he felt his body heat up.
His cold brow knitted up, and he raised his hand to open the window, but gave up when he saw the sleeping girl on the side.
He raised his hand and untied his robes a bit.
The manic heat was emanating from inside his body.
