Hao Fu Lu was shocked. How could he receive favors from the Regent Princess?
But when he was about to refuse, Lu Qiao already flew into the house.
Hao Fu Lu felt the purse in his sleeve helplessly and found that it was very substantial. Even a person like him, who is not greedy for money, could not help but be a little tempted.
The Regent Consort really knows how to do things, really generous.
In the end, he clenched his cuffs and went back to the Palace with his people.
Lu Qiao went back to Shen Xiang Yuan.
Wen Qi Qi gave her a look.
Lu Qiao did not say anything due to the presence of Housekeeper Chen, but only nodded her head.
But how could Housekeeper Chen not understand? But he did not say anything more, but in his heart he felt that the Princess was quite good at things.
As the saying goes, many people are polite. He could see that Hao Fu Lu is cautious, but in this world, how many people can refuse a benefit?
There is nothing wrong for the Princess to have a good relationship with others.
Housekeeper Chen helped to check the gift list and found that it was correct, then he handed it back to Wen Qi Qi.
“There is nothing to do here for Your Highness, so I will leave now.”
“Thank you, Uncle Chen, for your help today.” Wen Qi Qi nodded her head.
After Housekeeper Chen left, Wen Qi Qi got up and looked at the gifts one by one.
Gu Heng’s reward was quite substantial, with a hundred taels of gold and some fine fabrics, while the Grand Empress Dowager’s gift was precious medicinal materials, such as Lingzhi, ginseng and bird’s nest, all of which were worth a lot of money, even though they were for food.
What Empress Dowager Guo sent was much inferior.
They were all some ornaments, vases and paintings.
Wen Qi Qi looked at them and found that they were not valuable items.
This Empress Dowager Guo could not have seen that the Emperor and the Grand Empress Dowager had given her something so she had taken these things to make up the number, could she?
Wen Qi Qi grimaced.
This really can’t be blamed on her small-mindedness. It’s really because that Empress Dowager Guo always gives her a very strange and uncomfortable feeling.
“Miss, this bird’s nest can nourish your face and moisturize your skin, eating more of it is good for your body. This servant will stew it for you.” After Lu Qiao put everything in order, she came out to ask Wen Qi Qi for instructions.
Wen Qi Qi nodded her head, “Okay.” The things that are given by the Royal Family are not so easy to sell and will go bad if left there, so it’s a waste not to eat them.
Thinking of something, she added, “Right, take some of that ginseng and stew it, and send it to the Regent.”
She felt she was quite virtuous to eat bird’s nest and give her husband ginseng.
Lu Qiao covered her mouth and snickered, “Your Highness is so kind to His Majesty.”
Wen Qi Qi was not ashamed to say, “That’s right. If the Regent is good to me, I naturally have to be good to the Regent, this is my duty as a wife.” She still expected Gu Lin Chao to protect her and the Wen family for the rest of her life, so she naturally hoped that he would be in good health and live a long life.
A muffled laugh suddenly came.
“Who?” Lu Qiao shouted in a sullen voice and turned her head towards the direction where the laughter came from.
She thought it was some unruly subordinate, but unexpectedly, a man swaggered in outside the door, followed by two others.
When she fixed her eyes, she saw that it was Xiao Yan and the Tuo siblings.
“I really didn’t expect this niece-in-law of mine to be so virtuous.” Xiao Yan looked at Wen Qi Qi with a teasing expression.
Wen Qi Qi sat still and said without blushing, “I’ve always been so virtuous, it’s just that you haven’t seen it.”
Xiao Yan sat down on the stool next to her and said with emotion, “I just appreciate your cheekiness.”
How could Wen Qi Qi not hear his ridicule? She said, “You don’t have to admire me, just go home and look in the mirror.”
