When Xiao Yan saw this, he reached out to reach for the jade pot, but Wen Qi Qi avoided it.
“Qi Qi, you are too stingy.” Xiao Yan was very dissatisfied and was about to say that he had just invited her to drink when he heard her say, “Uncle, have you forgotten what I said at the last Palace banquet? This grape wine is not like ordinary wine, before drinking this grape wine, you have to wake it up first. That is you must pour it out and let it rest for a few moments, then drink it, the grape wine will be more fragrant.”
Xiao Yan smiled, and grabbed a pig’s foot and chewed it up, but his eyes kept staring at the jade pot.
Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi’s eyes flashed.
Anyway, wine was very common in modern times. She had drunk some of the expensive kind, and the taste was just like that, instead, this Hundred Flowers Clear Wine ……
She winked at Tuo Jiang Hua.
There is no need for her to say anything since this girl will know what she means.
Mostly, she also thinks that the Hundred Flowers Clear Wine is good to drink.
It just so happened that she was seated on Xiao Yan’s side and the wine jug was easily accessible to her.
So, while Xiao Yan was chewing on the pig’s feet and staring at the grape wine, she quietly took the wine jug and quickly poured herself a full glass before handing it to Wen Qi Qi under the table.
Wen Qi Qi poured herself a full glass and drank it all in one gulp, and then poured herself another glass.
Xiao Yan didn’t even notice it, because he only had grape wine in his eyes now, and had forgotten about the Hundred Flowers Clear Wine.
“This grape wine has been awakened long enough to drink it, right?” Xiao Yan finished gnawing on a pig’s foot, patiently complained as he turned his head and asked Wen Qi Qi about it.
It didn’t matter if he didn’t look, but after this look, his whole body was scared out of his mind.
He shouted, “Ah, you girl, how dare you secretly drink this Hundred Flowers Clear Wine behind my back?” With these words, he quickly snatched the wine jug from Wen Qi Qi’s hand and shook it. He found that there didn’t seem to be a drop inside.
He opened the lid of the jug and saw that it was really empty. Now, his face changed greatly and he looked at Wen Qi Qi with an odd look.
“Did you drink all of it?”
Wen Qi Qi smacked her lips, and said graciously, “Uncle, I’ve finished your wine, so I’ll give you all the wine in the jade pot.”
The corner of Xiao Yan’s mouth twitched, “Then I really thank you.” Saying that, he grabbed the jade pot, and then ran away in a flash.
If he doesn’t run now, when will he wait? That girl would be so drunk that his nephew would blame him and peel his skin.
It seems that he has to take a leave of absence for a few days. It is better to leave the capital and come back when the storm has passed.
With this in mind, he slipped away as fast as he could.
Tuo Qingye looked dumbfounded.
What is the matter with Duke Jing? It was as if a ghost was chasing him.
In the study.
Housekeeper Chen came to report, “Your Majesty, Duke Jing has brought wine to the Princess Consort to drink, do you want to go over and see?”
When Xiao Yan came, he had seen it. He saw that he also brought along a wine jug and took Prince Tuo and the Princess to the Shen Xiang courtyard and guessed that he should have gone to find the Consort for a drink.
However, the fact is that Duke Jing is not very reliable, and the Consort has only just woken up from her coma, so she should not get drunk by him.
Gu Lin Chao stopped what he was doing and asked, “How long has he been here?”
“At least two quarters of an hour.” Housekeeper Chen replied.
When Gu Lin Chao heard that, his face changed slightly. He dropped the things in his hand and walked out with big steps.
Housekeeper Chen and the others followed in a hurry.
When Gu Lin Chao arrived at Shen Xiang courtyard, Tuo Qingye and Tuo Jiang Hua had already said goodbye and left.
Because Tuo Jiang Hua was suddenly drunk, she was helped by Tuo Qingye.
At this time, Wen Qi Qi was propped up on the stone table with one hand. Her face was flushed like a sunset, and her eyes, which were usually lustrous and brimming with peach blossoms, became misty.
She tilted her face up and looked at the sky with fascination.
