It was the soup that did it.
His eyes could not help but fall on the corner, the girl’s unsuspecting sleeping face.
She slept soundly. Her thick, curly eyelashes, were covering her eyelids, casting a row of shadows. She had an exquisite nose and red lips, and her skin was white and beautiful ……
He abruptly had a dry mouth.
He took water from the little table to drink.
But his gaze could not help but, once again, drift towards the girl.
His adam’s apple rolled down, and his phoenix eyes were dark.
This kind of lack of control, made him feel strange to himself.
He has always been restrained, never had there a time when he could not control himself.
Even as a young child, during those darkest days, when he was hungry to the point of spasms and convulsions, he was able to restrain his inner cravings and not steal other people’s food ……
Thinking of those dim days, his eyes dimmed and he closed them, mobilizing his true qi to suppress the agitation and heat.
As soon as the carriage stopped, Wen Qi Qi woke up.
She stretched her legs and turned her head, but was stunned.
“Your Majesty, your nose is bleeding.” Reacting, she shouted out loud.
Gu Lin Chao did not look at her. He held a handkerchief to his nose and did not say a word as he got up and got out of the carriage.
Wen Qi Qi was dumbfounded for a while.
So, what had happened when she had just fallen asleep? What had Gu Lin Chao done?
Thinking about the soup that Momo Zeng stewed ……
The corners of her mouth twitched and she immediately understood.
Well, it was the work of that soup again.
The only thing she wondered was, did Momo Zeng add more quantity to the soup this time, so that Gu Lin Chao had a reaction in just a short time this time?
When she got down from the carriage, Gu Lin Chao was already gone.
“Is the Regent all right?” She turned her head to ask Wang Hou De.
Wang Hou De gave her a subtle look and smiled, “I’m not sure.”
Wen Qi Qi saw his gaze flicker and froze. Thinking of the words she had just shouted in the carriage, she lost her voice and had a bad feeling in her heart.
She swept her gaze to the others, and saw that they had the same expression.
“That …… the Regent’s nosebleed is because he had a tonic soup at the Grand Empress Dowager’s place.” She gave a light cough and explained.
“This servant knows.” Wang Hou De nodded his head with a smile.
Wen Qi Qi paused, realizing that she was simply making things worse, so she simply stopped talking and went straight into the residence.
After Wen Ruyi returned to her own palace, she thought that Gu Heng would be back soon, so she went to Jiu Chen Hall.
As expected, she did not have to wait long before Gu Heng came back.
When he saw her, his face was indifferent, but he still said, “Your body is weak, why aren’t you resting inside?”
Wen Ruyi twisted the handkerchief in her hand and said in a sad tone, “I really don’t remember what happened before. That person just now, I don’t recognize who she is either, I’m just afraid that the Emperor has misunderstood me because of this ……”
Looking at her pale and soft face, Gu Heng said, “But, did I really misunderstand? Imperial Aunt is not someone who speaks nonsense.”
Wen Ruyi smiled. Her heart hated her, but she didn’t dare to show it on the surface. She sobbed softly, “But I really don’t remember what happened before ……”
Gu Heng sighed and said with some impatience, “I know, you go back.” After saying that, he stepped inside.
Looking at his lonely back, Wen Ruyi was angry and anxious, but there was nothing she could do.
It’s all because of that bitch Wen Qi Qi.
If she hadn’t deliberately said those ambiguous words to arouse suspicion, Gu Heng wouldn’t have treated her like this.
She could feel that Gu Heng had a good feeling for her.
