When Wen Qi Qi heard this, her face showed delight and she immediately agreed, “Okay, Your Majesty should wait for me tomorrow.”
Was Gu Lin Chao asking her out?
However, she didn’t expect that Gu Lin Chao, who looks quite old-fashioned, would still know how to ask her to play.
Looking at the girl’s bright eyebrows, Gu Lin Chao unconsciously breathed a sigh of relief and slowly loosened his clenched fist.
This time, Wen Qi Qi did not stay longer and quickly left.
Looking at the empty door, Gu Lin Chao pondered for a long time, before withdrawing his gaze and refocusing on government affairs.
A few moments later, he felt that Wen Qi Qi had been too attentive just now, not like her usual self.
He frowned and summoned Wang Hou De inside.
“Today, before this King returned to His residence, what did the Princess do? Did someone come to His residence?”
Wang Hou De obviously felt that after the Princess came over, the gloom on the master’s body was not so intimidating. He was still feeling that the Princess just had a way, but he did not expect that it was not long before the master called him in and suddenly had this question.
In the past, the master did not pay much attention to the movements of the Princess Consort in the house.
He wondered in his heart, but did not dare to be slow, and immediately replied: “I went to the Palace with Master today. Since I’m not sure, I’ll ask Housekeeper Chen.”
Gu Lin Chao nodded his head.
In a short time, Wang Hou De re-entered and said, “In the morning, Eldest Young Master Wen came, but after sitting for a short time, he left, followed by Princess Tuo.”
When Gu Lin Chao heard this, he knew why Wen Qi Qi was acting differently today.
It turned out to be because of Wen Ting Yun.
It seems that she knew about Wen Ting Yun’s promotion.
But did she think that he had arranged for Wen Ting Yun’s promotion to Minister of Officials?
However, if it was not for the ability of Wen Ting Yun himself, he would not have been able to promote him.
This Wen family people …… They really know how to return the favor.
He facial expression fluctuated, difficult to distinguish between happiness and anger, before he pursed his lips and said: “This King knows, you go back.”
Wang Hou De withdrew with a bow.
The next day, the weather was beautiful.
After having breakfast, Wen Qi Qi changed into a light green dress and walked towards the entrance of the residence.
When she arrived, Gu Lin Chao was really waiting for her.
“Your Majesty.” She walked over with brisk steps.
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze fell on her and quickly moved away, “Get in the carriage.”
“Okay.” Wen Qi Qi stepped on the stool and was just about to board the carriage when suddenly, the two siblings, Tuo Qingye and Tuo Jiang Hua, rushed over from afar.
“Huh, are you guys traveling?” Tuo Qingye asked.
“Where to?” Tuo Jiang Hua asked after him.
“We’re going to the countryside to go fishing.” Wen Qi Qi responded.
Tuo Jiang Hua’s eyes lit up, “Can we go together?”
Gu Lin Chao’s face sank and he decisively refused, “No. If the Prince and Princess want to travel, they can have an official from the Ministry of Rites accompany them.”
“What’s the fun in going with that group of old men?” Tuo Jiang Hua said uninterestedly.
“Yes, the Regent should bring us along, it’s more lively with more people.” Prince Tuo said as if he didn’t see the refusal written on Gu Lin Chao’s face and followed closely.
Gu Lin Chao ignored the two of them and went straight to Wen Qi Qi and said, “Go up.”
“Oh.” Wen Qi Qi also felt that more people would be more lively, and she and Jiang Hua were quite friendly, but Gu Lin Chao is the big boss, so what he says is what happens.
She looked at Jiang Hua apologetically before she lifted her skirt and boarded the carriage, and was just about to stoop to enter when Xiao Yan rode over in a hurry.
“Heng Zhi, are you and Qi Qi going to travel? Just in time, I am free today and can accompany you.”
