Chapter 178: Nearly Indulging
Gu Lin Chao had just raised his head and the girl was already standing at his side. The next thing he knew, the girl’s soft palm was covering his forehead.
“You don’t seem to have a fever anymore ……” Wen Qi Qi said with some uncertainty. She then withdrew her hand and touched her own forehead again, feeling that their temperatures were similar, and added, “The fever should have subsided.” After saying that, she walked straight back to the table and took out the congee from the food box.
“Wang Ye, your fever has just gone down, your body is still weak, you can only eat something light. This is the lean meat porridge that was boiled in the kitchen this afternoon, you can eat some.” She brought the bowl over and put it in front of Gu Li Chao.
Gu Lin Chao glanced at her. He actually didn’t have an appetite, but when he met her concerned eyes, he couldn’t say the words to refuse.
“Okay.” He answered in a low voice, picked up the bowl and ate.
Until he finished eating, Wen Qi Qi had no intention to leave.
After she took the empty bowl back into the food box, she sat down in a chair at the side.
Gu Lin Chao paused and was forced to speak, “You can go back now.”
Wen Qi Qi shook her head, “I’m not going back. I’ll wait until Wang Ye goes back to bed.”
Her righteous tone caused Gu Lin Chao to look slightly stunned.
After a moment, he lowered his eyes and said in a warm voice: “This King may have to stay late, you’d better go back first.”
Wen Qi Qi said: “See, I am just worried that you will not take care of your body, that’s why I stayed to supervise you. You can deal with government affairs, but not too late. I will give you another half an hour, and after that you must go back and rest.”
Gu Lin Chao frowned. As he listened to her vaguely domineering tone, a trace of peculiarity crossed his heart.
He has always been in good health, but it’s not like he hasn’t been sick before.
Previously in the military camp …… and as a child in exile. At that time, he was also sick, even much more serious than now. Additionally, the conditions were bad, but he shouldered it all alone.
Now there is such a person around him, asking him warm questions. The feeling is very strange, but it let his heart and soul feel full.
That feeling made his lips tighten, and his voice was much colder, “This King knows, you go back quickly.”
Wen Qi Qi shook her head, and replied with a serious face, “I do not want to go back, I want to stay with you.”
Gu Lin Chao’s fingers curled up and he met the girl’s clear and beautiful peach blossom eyes, almost drowning in them. When he came back to his senses, his handsome face sank slightly and he strengthened his tone, “Your presence here will only disturb this King.”
He thought that if he said this, Wen Qi Qi would not stay. But he really underestimated Wen Qi Qi’s thick skin.
She blinked her eyes, “Why? I am so quiet, so well-behaved, no sound at all, how could I disturb you?”
Gu Lin Chao’s expression stalled and he was speechless.
But Wen Qi Qi continued, “Is it because this Consort is so beautiful that even if I don’t do anything, Wang Ye will be distracted by my presence?”
Gu Lin Chao: “……”
Wen Qi Qi stroked her face and sighed, “Being born too beautiful is not what I wish for… Your Majesty, just think of me as an ugly monster, then I’m sure you won’t be distracted.”
The corners of Gu Lin Chao’s eyes twitched. He raised his eyes to look at the self-absorbed woman and simply stopped paying attention to her.
Forget it, if she wants to stay, she can stay.
But treating her like an ugly monster?
That was a bit too much to ask.
When Wen Qi Qi saw that he didn’t drive her away, she was quite pleased with herself.
Translators Note: Wen Qi Qi at every given opportunity: I am so hot, my beauty is a crime. I’m sorry for being so beautiful *dramatic fall onto a couch* 😂
Ellie Note: It just shows the character development that Gu Lin Chao has gone through. Previously he would have gone all human-shaped iceberg but now he’s finding her cute. Our babies are growing up.
