Gu Lin Chao paused, and when he saw her insistence, he simply ignored her again.
When he looked up another time, he saw Wen Qi Qi had fallen asleep curled up in a chair, making soft breathing sounds.
She was so slender and thin that she was only a tiny ball curled up on the chair.
Gu Lin Chao got up to close the window. He was just about to go back to the desk, but he was worried that she might catch a cold, so he took off his outer robe, walked over, and leaned down to cover her.
When he straightened his body, his eyes suddenly fell on the corner of her mouth.
There were a few glistening water drops there, and it was only after a moment that he realized that it was saliva ……
The corners of his eyes twitched.
She really doesn’t look like a lady at all with this look.
Sitting with bad posture, sleeping with bad posture ……
He thought this in his heart, but subconsciously took a handkerchief out of his sleeve and leaned down to help her wipe away her saliva.
When he realized what he had done, his whole body froze. He did not know whether to throw away the handkerchief or to put it away.
“Your Majesty, you should take care of your health, I hope you can live a long life ……”
Wen Qi Qi suddenly murmured.
Gu Lin Chao was stunned. His gaze fell back on her small face, and his heart surged with complexity.
She was even dreaming about his body ……
The feet that were going to walk away, were fixed in place.
A few moments later, he leaned down and picked her up.
Wang Houde and Si Yi, who were waiting outside the door, could not hide their surprise when they saw him come out with Wen Qi Qi in his arms.
The master has always put the country’s court affairs first. Even if he is sick, as soon as he wakes up, he will immediately go to the study to deal with political affairs, but now, the Princess has only fallen asleep, yet the master has put aside his political affairs and wants to take her back to the courtyard.
The two have been with Gu Lin Chao for many years and were naturally familiar with his nature as a person, so they were so surprised to see him in such an abnormal way.
Wang Houde reacted and hurriedly grabbed a lantern and went after him.
“Master, this servant will give you a lantern.”
When they arrived at the Shen Xiang courtyard, Gu Lin Chao directly carried Wen Qi Qi into her bedchamber.
He had been here several times, and was no stranger to her abode.
He skillfully carried her to her bed.
At this time, a round jade pendant slipped out from inside her robe.
Gu Lin Chao was stunned.
This jade pendant was the one he gave to her at the palace banquet that day.
However, he did not expect that she would wear it close to her body.
The corners of his lips pursed. As his gaze fell on her pretty, clear face, his deep eyes seemed to surge with something.
Lu Qiao once again saw the Prince carrying her own young lady back and was no longer surprised.
She stood outside the door and waited for a while before seeing Gu Lin Chao come out.
“Your Majesty.” She saluted with her knees bent.
“Take care of Wang Fei.” Gu Lin Chao instructed and left in a hurry.
Lu Qiao saw with sharp eyes that when he left, his face was very red, and there seemed to be sweat on his forehead.
She went into the room to look, and saw her own young lady sleeping very well. Her sleeping posture was bold, and she was holding the quilt with her legs, and there was a smile on her face.
The corners of her mouth twitched. The lady wouldn’t have done anything to the Prince just now, would she?
She shook her head, went up and re-covered Wen Qi Qi with the quilt.
After Gu Lin Chao returned to the West Garden, he went straight into the bathroom.
This time he did not take a cold bath again, but soaked in the water for a long time.
As soon as he closed his eyes, a soft touch seemed to come from his hand again. This time, it seemed even clearer.
His mind even inappropriately recalled the scene in Shen Xiang Courtyard just now.
