Wen Qi Qi brought Si Yi to send Tuo Jiang Hua back to the Palace before returning to the Regents Residence.
After a day of walking, her feet were tired and she really didn’t want to walk anymore, so she went into the front hall. She planned to have a cup of tea and rest her feet before going back to the back yard.
What she didn’t expect was to find Gu Lin Chao also in the front hall.
It was already dark, but the house had not yet had time to turn on the lights, so the room was a bit dim.
However, Wen Qi Qi still saw Gu Lin Chao sitting by the window at a glance.
He had a book in his hand and a cup of tea in his hand. Because he didn’t have his hair tied up today, his whole person looked less majestic and cold. He was sitting there leisurely, not at all like a commander of three armies who had been through a hundred battles and had killed decisively, but like a scholar who had read a lot of poetry and books.
From the perspective of Wen Qi Qi , Gu Lin Chao’s face is reserved and perfect. His body exudes an aura of asceticism and coolness, which is very fascinating.
When she saw a beautiful man sitting there, Wen Qi Qi’s breath hitched, even though it was not the first time that she had seen Gu Lin Chao.
Hearing the sound of footsteps, Gu Lin Chao lifted his gaze from the pages of the book and looked straight towards Wen Qi Qi.
Perhaps because he had been reading for a long time, his eyes were a little tired, and he squinted a little before he adjusted.
“Back?” He asked in a low voice.
She didn’t know if it was because he hadn’t spoken for too long, but his voice was a little low and hoarse, and it fell on people’s ears with a kind of tingling feeling.
Wen Qi Qi felt her legs were a little weak, not because of his voice, but because she had walked too much today.
Yes, this must be the case.
At the end, in order to convince herself, she also emphasized that sentence in her mind.
To hide her discomfort, she coughed lightly and said, “Why didn’t Your Majesty have someone turn on the lights?”
Gu Lin Chao smiled and turned his head to look out the window, seemingly only now knowing that it was getting dark.
A trace of confusion appeared on his face for a moment before he said, “It’s surprisingly late.”
Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi looked at him with some surprise, then asked in surprise, “How long has the Regent been sitting here?”
Gu Lin Chao did not say anything.
Wen Qi Qi guessed, “You haven’t been sitting here all afternoon, have you?”
Gu Lin Chao didn’t answer her. He put the book away and stood up, “This King will go and order them to serve dinner.”
“I have eaten outside, Your Majesty can just eat by yourself.” Wen Qi Qi said. She was just about to sit down on the chair, when she saw him suddenly turn around, she had to slow down her movements and slowly sit down.
Gu Lin Chao looked at her and his lips moved, as if he wanted to say something.
Wen Qi Qi urged: “Your Majesty, go and eat, don’t get hungry.”
Gu Lin Chao’s lips flattened into a line.
He had put aside his Imperial affairs today to take her fishing in the countryside, but she ended up accompanying Princess Huijiang.
He sat here all afternoon waiting for her to come back and have dinner together, but she ate outside ……
Wen Qi Qi was sensitive to the fact that he was suddenly more somber. Coupled with the dimness of the house, the whole person looked a kind of eerie feeling.
She thought that it would be better for her to go back to her courtyard to rest her feet.
“Your Majesty, enjoy your evening meal, I will go back first.” Saying this, she hurriedly bowed towards him, and then slipped away as if there was a ghost chasing her behind her.
Gu Lin Chao raised his hand and rubbed his brow.
This girl, is she afraid of him?
Wang Hou De felt that today’s Master, inexplicably make people feel scary.
Si Yi also noticed, and retreated to a safe range without making a sound.
