Gu Heng brushed off his hand and raised his sleeve to wipe the cold sweat on his forehead.
Although his Imperial Uncle was not angry, it was more frightening than anger.
He did not expect that his Imperial Uncle would come to the Palace specifically for the sake of Wen Qi Qi.
He lowered his eyes, thought about it, and said to Hao Fu Lu: “The Regent Princess was frightened in the Palace today. Go to the treasury and pick some tonic products and send them to the Princess.”
Hao Fu Lu immediately answered, “I’ll go now.”
When Hao Fu Lu went out, Gu Heng sat down on the chair at once with his fists clenched.
Obviously, he was the Emperor of Daye, but every time he faced his Imperial Uncle, he had a feeling of being held by a sharp sword against his throat, not daring to move.
This is ridiculous!
He is the ruler of the Greatest Country.
He should not feel that kind of wretchedness.
It is true that his Imperial Uncle has contributed to the society and to the court, but his presence is too strong ……
And as long as he is there, he will be subject to restrictions everywhere. He cannot do as he pleases and has to live under his shadow at all times.
Thinking of this, a sense of powerlessness arose in his heart.
When will he be able to get rid of his uncle’s shadow?
When he calmed down and recalled the conversation, he immediately decreed to abolish Wen Ruyi’s title of Jieyu and sent her to the Cold Palace with the order to never leave the Cold Palace again.
In a flash, the news was spread throughout the Palace.
Wen Ruyi was still in the Cold Palace, hoping that Gu Heng would come to take her out, but she waited and waited, but all she got was an annulled edict.
She couldn’t accept this fact and fainted on the spot.
When Empress Dowager Guo learned this news, she was not so happy.
The reason is that Gu Lin Chao, a person who puts the state first in everything, would go to the Palace to pressure Gu Heng over such a trivial matter as Wen Qi Qi’s face being scratched.
What he did for such an empty beauty of a woman ……
Empress Dowager Guo’s well-kept nails sank deep into her palm.
Moreover, after Gu Lin Chao left the Palace, he went straight back to the Royal Residence.
Thinking about what Wen Qi Qi had done, he instructed Wang Hou De to ask Wen Qi Qi to come over for questioning. Wang Hou De went to the Shen Xiang Courtyard and soon came back.
“Wang Ye, the Princess has gone out with Princess Tuo.”
Gu Lin Chao frowned, “Where did she go?”
“This …… servant does not know.” Wang Hou De shook his head.
Gu Lin Chao pursed his lips.
That girl, her face has not yet healed, and she dares to run around. How can she take it so lightly?
His brows were tinged with a hint of anger.
In the evening, Gu Lin Chao finished dealing with government affairs, remembered this matter, and said to Wang Hou De: “Go to see if Wang Fei has returned.”
Wang Hou De stood unmoved, “No need to look, a servant just went to Shen Xiang Courtyard and Lu Qiao said that the Princess has not yet returned.”
Gu Lin Chao smiled. He looked at the sky outside, his eyebrows knitted, and said in a deep voice: “So late and she hasn’t come back. Don’t you know how to send someone to look for her?”
Wang Hou De was suddenly lectured, and he was a bit ashamed. He immediately said, “I’ll send someone to look for her.” Saying that, he hurriedly ran out.
The subordinates brought the evening meal, but Gu Lin Chao had no appetite at all.
Thinking about the last assassination attempt, he couldn’t sit still and got up to go outside.
Seeing this, Si Yi hurriedly followed him.
In an elegant room in Qingfeng Pavilion.
Wen Qi Qi and Tuo Jiang Hua, each occupying a section, sipped wine while eating the pig’s feet in their hands. They were quite excited.
“This Qingfeng Pavilion’s wine really lives up to its name.” After Tuo Jiang Hua gently took a sip of the wine in the cup, she couldn’t help but sigh out in praise.
