Wen Qi Qi went into the dressing room, but did not immediately change clothes and dresses, but silently counted.
“Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two ……”
When she was about to count to one, Wen Ting Xuan walked in at the right time.
She hurriedly put her hands on her belt and acted as if she wanted to change her clothes.
Wen Ting Xuan walked over with a sullen face, snatched the dress out of her hand and said in an unpleasant manner, “You go out and keep watch, don’t let anyone in, I want to change.”
Wen Qi Qi suppressed the smile at the corner of her mouth and said solemnly, “Second Brother, don’t worry, I will keep the door tightly guarded so that no one can peek in.” At the end, she added, “This dress is rather complicated, if you don’t know how to put it on, call out to me and I will come in immediately to help you put it on.”
“Get lost!” Wen Ting Xuan gritted his teeth.
Wen Qi Qi shrank her shoulders and ran out in a huff.
Xiao Yan and Gu Yi, one left and one right, followed Gu Lin Chao, and when they walked into the Hundred Flowers Pavilion, they found that it was already packed with seats.
Luckily, Gu Yi had sent someone over in advance to greet them, and the steward of the Hundred Flowers Pavilion had reserved an elegant room for them in advance.
As soon as the three arrived, the steward personally welcomed them in and led them to the best elegant room on the second floor.
The position of the elegant room was facing the stage built on the first floor, so they could see everything on the stage clearly.
The steward was already familiar with Gu Yi, and after entering the elegant room, he was about to ask a girl to come and serve him, but was stopped by a look from Gu Yi.
The steward was very discerning and took a look at Gu Lin Chao who was sitting in the center. He knew that this man’s status must be extremely important and he must be above Gu Yi, so he didn’t say anything more and just asked someone to serve some wine and dishes and then went down.
Gu Yi diligently gave Gu Lin Chao dishes, “Imperial Uncle, the dishes of this Hundred Flowers Pavilion are extremely delicious, you try ……”
“Didn’t you say before that you have never ventured here, how do you know the dishes here are delicious?” Gu Lin Chao glanced at him.
Gu Yi stalled and stammered, “This nephew heard it from others ……”
Gu Lin Chao didn’t pay attention to him anymore, and didn’t move a single chopstick for the dishes that were brought to him.
Xiao Yan wanted to pour wine for him, but seeing him like this, he gave up.
How could he not know the nature of his nephew?
It is already the limit to be able to set foot here, how could he eat the food here?
It didn’t take long for Si Yi to come back.
“Master, we searched all over the Hundred Flowers Pavilion and found no trace of the Princess.”
Gu Lin Chao frowned, “Today there are many people in the Hundred Flowers Pavilion, don’t miss a single place, search again. If you still can’t find her, withdraw the people back.” He had a feeling that, with Wen Qi Qi’s nature, if she came to Tunzhou and learned that there was something to see at the Hundred Flowers Pavilion, she would definitely come.
Otherwise, if she had managed to find such an excuse to slip out, wouldn’t it be a waste?
“Yes.” Si Yi received the order and went out.
Almost as soon as Si Yi went out, the candle flames in the lobby on the first floor suddenly went out, plunging them into darkness. The guests stirred for a while, but not long after, the candle flames gradually lit up in all corners of the lobby.
Looking out from here on the second floor, the entire lobby, surrounded by a circle of candle flames, formed a heart shape.
“It’s quite pretty.” Xiao Yan said playfully.
Just as his words fell, a sound similar to a bell and drum, suddenly rang out.
Immediately afterwards, a woman wearing a foreign costume with a veil covering her face twisted her waist and lightly appeared on the stage.
She held a bell drum in her hand, dancing and clapping as she made a crisp bell drum sound.
Upstairs and downstairs, there was a sudden outcry.
Xiao Yan’s whole body hung onto the window.
Gu Yi also stared at it with wide eyes.
Translators Note: Gu Lin Chao really knows Qi Qi too well 😂. Fingers crossed she can escape trouble but I feel like Xiao Yan will expose her cause he’s petty
