Wen Ruyi’s heart was happy, and at the same time, she was proud of her intelligence.
“Your Imperial Majesty, this concubine did not do anything. You believe me ……”
“I naturally believe you.” Gu Heng took two quick steps and leaned down to pick her up.
But at just that moment, the sound of Hao Fu Lu’s voice sounded outside the door.
“Your Imperial Majesty, the Regent Prince has entered the Palace and is waiting for you in the Imperial Study.”
Gu Heng’s movements stopped and his eyebrows furrowed. Why did his Imperial Uncle come into the Palace?
He looked at Wen Ruyi and quickly thought. His Imperial Uncle suddenly entered the Palace at this moment, it must be for the matter of Wen Qi Qi.
Thinking that, he straightened up and said towards Wen Ruyi: “Imperial Uncle suddenly came into the Palace. There must be something urgent. You can rest here for a while, and I will come to pick you up after I finish the matter.”
“Your Imperial Majesty ……” Wen Ruyi’s face changed and she was busy tugging at his sleeve.
Gu Heng patted her shoulder soothingly, “Don’t worry, I will come to pick you up soon.” After saying that, he pulled her hand away and walked out with big steps.
Wen Ruyi was unusually angry and hateful as she watched him walk out, but there was nothing she could do.
How did Gu Lin Chao come into the Palace at this juncture?
If he had come a step later, she would have already left this damned Cold Palace.
She felt uneasy in her heart, always feeling that something would change.
But at the same time, she reassured herself that Gu Heng had just promised her himself that he would take her out of the Cold Palace.
He is the Emperor, his word is good. He would not break his word.
Wen Ruyi soothed herself and waited patiently for Gu Heng to return.
However, she was destined to be disappointed.
The Imperial study room.
When Gu Heng came back, Gu Lin Chao was present.
Looking at his Imperial Uncle who was even more unpredictable than before, Gu Heng did not dare to be slow and went forward to stop his greetings, “Why did Imperial Uncle come into the Palace?”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at him and said in a light voice: “After your Imperial Aunt returned to the Palace, she did not say anything. If this King did not see her face injured, he would not have known that she was beaten by Liu Jieyu.
Originally, this King is not interested in the people and matters in your harem, but your aunt has been bullied like that after a trip to the Palace, so this King can’t just sit back and do nothing. The next time she enters the Palace, will she have to lose her life here?”
His voice was always calm and cool, but when Gu Heng heard this, his heart fluttered and sweat broke out on his forehead.
“Imperial Uncle is too serious, this time ……” he paused and said, “This time, Liu Jieyu bumped into the Imperial Aunt. She was taught by the Empress Dowager and sent to the Cold Palace.”
“The matter of Liu Jieyu going to the Cold Palace, this King has heard about it, but she only went to the Cold Palace temporarily. The Emperor can let her out anytime he wants.” Although Gu Lin Chao’s tone was light, he revealed in one sentence what Gu Heng was planning in his heart.
He had just wanted to take Wen Ruyi out of the Cold Palace.
Gu Heng’s heart flinched again. It was a long time before he said, “Don’t worry, Imperial Uncle. This time, Imperial Aunt was injured because of Liu Jieyu, I will definitely give you and Imperial Aunt an explanation.”
“Then I wonder, what is Your Imperial Majesty going to do with Liu Jieyu?” Gu Lin Chao asked in a light voice as he flexed his fingers and tapped on the armchair.
Gu Heng was instantly bound by an invisible pressure. He gritted his teeth and finally made up his mind.
“Liu Jieyu has no respect for elders, does not understand etiquette, and injured the Regent Princess. Her title should be abolished and she should be sent to the Cold Palace. If there is no improvement, she should never set foot outside the Cold Palace again.”
Gu Lin Chao smiled and stood up, “Since the Emperor has decided to give the decree to dispose of Liu Jieyu, then this King will not disturb your office, so I will leave the Palace first.”
“Take care of yourself, Imperial Uncle.” Gu Heng sent him out of the Imperial study room before returning, but his feet were weak and he almost fell down. Luckily, Hao Fu Lu reacted quickly and helped him in time, “Your Imperial Majesty, be careful.”
