Gu Lin Chao saw her rolling eyes and knew what she was thinking in her heart.
Seeing that she refused to tell the truth, he did not force her, but said, “You come with me.”
Wen Qi Qi was not sure, and was just about to follow him when she thought of the ginseng chicken soup and immediately said, “But I still have to serve chicken soup to you.”
Gu Lin Chao now had a fear when he heard the words chicken soup.
Thinking about the bowl of ginseng soup he drank last night, his mouth still seemed to have a bitter taste.
And because of that bowl of soup, he barely slept last night.
If he drank it again, then he wouldn’t have to sleep again tonight.
“There’s no need for you to go personally, this King will just let Wang Hou De serve it.” After saying that, his gaze swept towards Wang Hou De, “Go and bring the chicken soup to the study.”
“Yes.” Wang Hou De went happily.
Gu Lin Chao looked at Wen Qi Qi, “Let’s go.”
Wen Qi Qi could only follow him.
However, what she did not expect was that Gu Lin Chao took her directly back to the West Garden Courtyard.
To her surprise, Gu Lin Chao also let her follow him into his rooms.
Wen Qi Qi felt like she was dreaming.
Why was she feeling like she had entered his world?
She swept her gaze around the bedroom’s furnishings.
Gu Lin Chao’s rooms were just like his person, elegant and neat, but with a cold atmosphere everywhere.
When she reached the outer room, she stopped and did not dare to go further inside.
Inside is where he sleeps, she should not get involved.
But she was so curious in her heart that she thought of something she shouldn’t.
How big was the bed where Gu Lin Chao slept? And what color is his bedding?
Gu Lin Chao entered the inner room and came out within a few moments, with an additional porcelain bottle in his hand.
He walked back in front of Wen Qi Qi while she had not yet returned to her senses.
A pair of beautiful peach blossom eyes were flashing with a confused light, and he didn’t know what she was thinking about.
He paused, opened the porcelain bottle along with some clean pad and applied some ointment to the wound on the left side of her face.
Looking at the red marks that looked like they had been made by nails, Gu Lin Chao’s eyes narrowed.
This girl did not tell the truth.
But this wound ……
Did she get into a fight with someone?
“Where did you go in the morning? What did you do?” He asked indifferently.
The cool ointment touched on her skin, and Wen Qi Qi finally came back to her senses. Hearing his question, she immediately said, “The Grand Empress Dowager had someone come out to pick up this Consort to the Palace, and at noon I accompanied the Grand Empress Dowager to have a meal before leaving the Palace.”
Thinking of one thing, she hastily pulled out a box from her sleeve and presented it like a treasure, “Look, this is a gift from the Grand Empress Dowager. It’s a whole box full of Southern pearls, each one is very big and round, very beautiful.”
After saying that, she also opened the box and let him see.
Gu Lin Chao listened to her lovely words. His dark eyes flashed with a smile as he followed her intention and looked at her box.
As a result, he saw that it was full of round and beautiful Southern pearls.
“You like these beads very much?” He asked carelessly.
“Yes, all women will like them.” Wen Qi Qi said casually as she covered the box back and put it away again.
Gu Lin Chao paused and advised, “This wound on your face, this King has applied medicine for you. Be careful not to get it wet in the next two days.”
Only then did Wen Qi Qi realize that he was actually applying medicine to her face. Surprised, she blinked her eyes and asked foolishly, “What will happen if I get water on it?”
Gu Lin Chao looked at her beautiful eyes. He closed his black eyes and said in a warm voice: “If you get water on it, it won’t hurt. It’s just that if it’s serious, the wound may get badly infected and affect your beauty.”
