Wen Qi Qi was not convinced. This wound was not even a big injury. It was just a scratch, how could it be as serious as he said?
She was about to raise her hand to touch it, but Gu Ling Chao pulled her hand, “It’s coated with medicine, don’t touch it.”
Wen Qi Qi tilted her face up and said, “You’re scaring me, aren’t you? This wound is so shallow, and I am still so young, I can recover quickly.”
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze fell on her white wrist that he held, and after a pause, he let go, put his hand behind his back, and looked away, “This King is not scaring you, it’s just that there is a possibility that the wound will not heal well.”
“Oh.” Wen Qi Qi shrugged. Regarding this wound, she didn’t care too much, it would heal fine.
Gu Lin Chao saw her standing there with no intention to leave, thought for a moment and asked, “Are you thirsty, do you want a cup of tea?”
Wen Qi Qi froze and subconsciously licked her lips, “Yes, please help me to pour a cup.” She didn’t notice just now, but now that she heard him mention it, she felt a little thirsty and said instead, “I want to drink water, not tea.”
Gu Lin Chao’s throat rolled, and without saying anything, he went to pour a cup of water for her.
Wen Qi Qi took it and gulped, finishing it in one breath.
“Thank you, Your Majesty, then I will go back first.” Wen Qi Qi put the empty cup on the table, spoke towards Gu Lin Chao, and then wanted to leave.
“You ……” Gu Lin Chao shouted out a word and stopped.
“Does Your Majesty have anything else?” Wen Qi Qi stopped in her tracks and turned around to look suspiciously.
“Nothing.” Gu Lin Chao’s black eyes were slightly closed, and his voice was clear and cold.
“Oh.” Wen Qi Qi was just about to leave when she thought of something and admonished, “Remember to drink the ginseng soup later, make sure to drink it while it’s hot.”
Gu Lin Chao thought about it, sighed and advised, “Your heart, this King understands, but don’t cook it again in the future. That taste …… this King doesn’t like very much.”
When Wen Qi Qi heard him, her shoulders collapsed, “The ginseng soup cooked by this Consort is not to the taste of Your Majesty?”
When Gu Lin Chao saw her like this, he subconsciously said against his will, “Not really. The one you cooked is naturally quite tasty, but this King does not like the taste of ginseng very much ……”
Wen Qi Qi’s face immediately cleared as soon as she heard that. She thought she understood his meaning and said kindly, “I understand, next time I will put less ginseng into it, so that you will not be able to taste the ginseng.”
Gu Lin Chao smiled and didn’t know what to say, but he couldn’t bear to discourage her enthusiasm, so he thought about it and nodded with a heavy face, “Okay.” Forget it, she likes to cook it, as long as she is happy!
At most, he will eat a few more candied fruits when he finishes drinking.
Seeing his stony face, Wen Qi Qi said with some amusement, “Why does the Regent look like this? It seems like you are facing something big that is difficult to bear.”
“No matter. You go back, this King is going to the study.” Gu Lin Chao said, thinking of something, handed her the porcelain bottle on the table, “This medicine was specially made for this King by the military doctor when this King was at the border, it has a miraculous effect on wound healing, you can take it.”
Wen Qi Qi froze and asked, “Was the Regent often injured before?” After saying that, she felt that she had asked a silly question, the battlefield sword has no eyes, Gu Lin Chao even powerful as he is, there are times when he was injured, right?
“It’s okay.” Gu Lin Chao lightly said.
“Oh, then I’ll go back.” After Wen Qi Qi said that, she left the West Garden.
Gu Lin Chao stood for a moment before going to the study.
Wang Hou De had already returned, and when he saw him enter, he said, “Master, the chicken soup is brought by the servant, you can drink it while it is hot.” Saying that, he diligently took the ginseng soup out of the food box and brought it to him.
Looking at the ginseng soup in the bowl, Gu Lin Chao’s eyebrows knitted together.
He had just asked Wang Hou De to bring the soup here in front of Wen Qi Qi. Originally, he had intended to let Wang Hou De drink it for him, but when he thought of the girl’s eager appearance in the West Garden, he could not bear to brush off her good intentions.
