Lu Qiao nodded, “It’s true, when the Regent carried you in, his sullen face was terrifying. When this servant girl thinks about it now, I still have palpitations. Afterwards, the doctor came and examined you, saying that you were too frightened and fainted, and it was nothing serious.
But even so, the Regent still stayed in the house to guard you all night, and only left when it was almost dawn. When it was time to go to court, he left, and he even asked this servant to inform the Duke and Madam.”
Wen Qi Qi was stunned to hear this.
Gu Lin Chao had guarded her all night?
Why did she feel that it was somewhat absurd?
A cold person like Gu Lin Chao would keep watch in her room all night?
But no wonder she saw the Wen family as soon as she opened her eyes, it turned out that he had someone notify them.
Was he suddenly so kind to her because she had taken credit for ruining the Bei Di people’s plot?
This is the only explanation that makes sense for Gu Lin Chao’s abnormalities.
Thinking of this, she shrugged her shoulders and did not dwell on this issue.
Not long after, Housekeeper Chen walked in with an eunuch.
This eunuch is called Hao Fu Lu, and he is Gu Heng’s confidant, as well as the chief steward of the Inner Court. He is in his thirties, well maintained, with a white face, lean physique, and a stable lower body. It can be seen that he is a trained warrior.
“Your Highness, Chief Steward Hao has been sent by His Majesty and the Empress Dowager to come out of the Palace to visit you.” Housekeeper Chen brought Chief Steward Hao forward with a fairly respectful attitude.
Wen Qi Qi felt that his attitude toward her was not as perfunctory as the first time she met him, so she couldn’t help but feel a little strange in her heart.
She didn’t know that Housekeeper Chen had actually been paying attention to her behavior in the house and saw that she was very different from before. She seemed to have changed her bad habits and was no longer so domineering and harsh to her subordinates.
As long as Gu Lin Chao cherished people, Housekeeper Chen would always treat them with sincerity.
“I have met Your Highness.” Hao Fu Lu bowed towards Wen Qi Qi.
He was not like Wang Hou De who was always smiling, he looked a bit more cautious.
“Chief Steward Hao, please do not salute.” Wen Qi Qi said with a smile.
Hao Fu Lu straightened up and also said with a smile, “Your Highness has made a great achievement this time, and the Emperor commended Your Highness in front of the court this morning. The Emperor also rewarded you with gold and a number of fabrics. When I left the Palace, the Grand Empress Dowager and the Empress Dowager also asked people to take some precious and rare items to bring out of the palace for Her Highness.”
He clapped his hands, and immediately a group of eunuchs came in from outside, holding things in their hands, and brought them to Wen Qi Qi.
“These are all the rewards from the top, please look at them.” Hao Fu Lu took a list and handed it to Wen Qi Qi.
Wen Qi Qi took it with a smile, “I am grateful to Chief Steward Hao for making this trip. Please be sure to thank His Majesty, the Grand Empress Dowager, and the Empress Dowager for me.”
“It is only right. Now that I have delivered the goods, I will go back and deliver your message. Your Highness should rest more and take care of your health.” After Hao Fu Lu finished speaking, he ordered the eunuchs to put the things down, and then led the people away.
At Wen Qi Qi’s look, Lu Qiao took a bulging purse and chased them out.
Only when they had reached the door of the residence did Lu Qiao catch up with them.
“Chief Steward Hao, this is a little token of Her Highness’s appreciation. Just giving it so that Chief Steward Hao and everyone can have tea.” Lu Qiao said in a low voice as she extremely tactfully stuffed the purse into Hao Fu Lu’s sleeve.
One thought on “Dressed as the Cannon Fodder Ex-Wife of the Regent Chapter 129 – Why Does She Have The Feeling Of Absurdity?”
Thanks for the chapter!!!!
