Chapter 97: Delusions of Grandeur
She could have captured his heart with a little more effort.
But her plans were all disrupted by Wen Qi Qi.
Now that Gu Heng doesn’t like her, she doesn’t even have a chance to enter Zi Yang Palace.
The Palace is full of people who worship high and tread on the low, and when they saw that Gu Heng’s attitude towards her had changed, they immediately looked at her coldly.
Wen Ruyi felt a mixture of shame and anger, but there was no other way.
Although she is now a concubine, in reality, Gu Heng hasn’t touched her.
Without Gu Heng’s favor, in this Palace, she will soon be even worse than a palace maid ……
However, she will not give up like this.
At least she is now in the Palace.
And although Gu Heng’s attitude towards her has just turned cold, at least he hasn’t shown his disgust for her.
She still has a chance.
Looking at the Jiu Chen Hall in front of her, she bit her lips. One day, she will let Gu Heng carry her in directly.
She didn’t stay any longer, butt turned around and went back to the side hall.
Xiang He Palace.
The palace servant hurriedly came in and reported, “Liu Chang Zai went to Zi Yang Hall, but the Emperor did not pay attention to her and did not even let her in.”
Empress Dowager Guo sat on a chair with her eyes closed as she enjoyed the massage of the palace maid.
After listening to the servant’s report, she opened her eyes. There was no smile on her face, because she was not very satisfied with this result.
For the son she gave birth to, she still knew.
To the weak, he naturally has a kind of protective desire.
Wen Ruyi saved him, plus she gave the feeling of being pitiful and weak, that’s why he defended her several times.
Today, at the banquet, after listening to Wen Qi Qi’s words, he actually had some suspicion and misgivings about Wen Ruyi in his heart.
However, he was only cold to Wen Ruyi.
A trace of ruthlessness swept through her eyes and she beckoned the palace maid.
The servant girl immediately went forward with her ear.
Empress Dowager Guo whispered a few words of instruction, and the maid nodded her head frequently.
At the end, Empress Dowager Guo explained, “Make sure to do a clean job, don’t let anyone find out.”
“This servant understands.” The palace maid nodded cautiously.
After seeing the palace maid go down, a smile appeared on Empress Dowager Guo’s face.
That little bitch dared to think of climbing up the ladder.
She would let her die without even knowing how.
The Duke of Ding’s Mansion.
Wen Shi Qing and the others had just returned from the Palace when Old Madam Wen sent someone over to invite them to Fu An Hall.
Several people glanced at each other, and their hearts were in agreement.
It seems that the old lady had already gotten the news and knew about Wen Ruyi’s entry into the palace.
Several people had to go to Fu An Hall.
Old Madam Wen had been waiting for a long time.
After they came in and took their seats, she spoke directly.
“Did you see Ruyi in the Palace today?”
Wen Shi Qing said, “Mother, who told you this again? We did go into the Palace today, but we didn’t see Ruyi.”
Wen Ting Xuan was a little surprised that his father was telling a lie with his eyes wide open.
But on second thought, this was a wise move on his part.
Wen Ruyi pretended to have amnesia, and even changed her name. Moreover, Qi Qi also said later that after that, Wen Ruyi had no relationship with the Wen family.
Old Madam Wen was stunned when she heard the words, “How could that be? Madam Chen just came and said to me that she saw Ruyi in the palace and that Ruyi is now a Chang Zai by the Emperor’s side.”
It turned out to be Madam Chen, the one with the shabby mouth.
She had only just come out of the palace and rushed to the Duke’s residence to tell the Old Madam about this.
Several people scolded Madame Chen in their hearts, but did not show it on the surface.
Wen Shi Qing sighed and said, “So Mother is talking about Liu Chang Zai ah.” He said, nodding, “The Emperor does have a Liu Chang Zai by his side, but it’s not Ruyi.”
