Chapter 202: Is this going straight to the point?
Wen Qi Qi’s eyes widened, “Sleep …… We are going to sleep here?”
Gu Lin Chao froze and asked, “What else do you want to do?”
Wen Qi Qi gulped, he is too straightforward. Was he going to be straight to the point?
Could she refuse?
She gave a dry laugh and rubbed her stomach, “My …… this consort seems to have eaten too much, ouch… I want to take a walk to dig digest… Yes, I want to digest… Wang Ye should go to sleep first.”
Gu Lin Chao frowned, “Why is your appetite so small?” He didn’t see her eat much in the evening, just a bowl of wontons and a bowl of noodles. How could this be all she ate?
“Women are different from men, women have a smaller appetites.” Wen Qi Qi explained. God knows that before he bought her the wontons, she had actually eaten the evening meal at the Hundred Flowers Pavilion and then she had eaten a ton of pastries afterwards.
Gu Lin Chao smiled and said nothing more.
The servants of the Tunzhou Prince Residence had prepared hot water and placed it by the basin stand before they came in.
Gu Ling Chao poured the water into the copper basin, wrung out a hand towel and handed it to her, “Wipe your face.”
Wen Qi Qi took it, wiped her face haphazardly, and was about to wash it, but Gu Lin Chao took it from her hand, “This King will do it.”
“Oh.” Wen Qi Qi let go of her hand and stood by the side, looking at him.
He had rolled up his sleeves, revealing a white but sturdy arm.
He was very tall and had to bend down when he washed the hand towel.
Even if it is a hand towel, he washes it with great care and attention.
The black eyes are slightly drooping, thick long eyelashes, covering the eyelids, casting a shadow on his cheeks.
Although he is a regent of high status, but when washing the hand towel, the action is very nimble.
He finished scrubbing the hand towel. Originally, he wanted to hang it up and get another one, but when he found the top empty, he paused.
He hesitated and finally simply put the hand towel in a bucket of hot water on the floor and washed it again, before slowly wringing it out and starting to wipe his face.
Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi finally understood what was going on.
She wandered over and squatted down next to him, “Does Your Majesty dislike this hand towel that I have used?”
Gu Lin Chao’s movement paused. He took off the hand towel and looked at her face, which looked more clear and clean after washing it, and shook his head, “No.” After a pause, he added, “Just a little uncomfortable.”
“Then, Your Majesty, don’t worry, my face is very clean. Look, I didn’t apply rouge and powder, it’s natural oh.” Wen Qi Qi knew that some men hate the smell of powder, so she made a point of emphasizing it. And to confirm that what she said was true, she couldn’t help but come closer and show him her face.
Gu Lin Chao couldn’t help but drop his gaze on her little face.
Her face was white and clean, and very pink. Under the light, even tiny hairs could be seen.
It was a very beautiful delicate face, and although it was not powdered, it had a beauty that was more lovely than rouge, and one look at it seemed to make people sink ……
Indeed, as she said, she did not put on rouge and powder, but her body has a natural body scent. The closer you get, the clearer the smell will be.
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze slipped and landed on her sweet red lips, and suddenly his mouth was a little dry.
“This King knows.” He said in a low and hoarse voice. He stood up, hung the hand towel back on the basin rack, then walked to the table and poured himself a cup of cold tea.
Wen Qi Qi glanced at him and said hesitantly, “Your Majesty, I, I will go to the bed first.”
“Okay.” Gu Lin Chao answered in a low voice and did not turn around.
Wen Qi Qi was a little surprised by his reaction.
Wasn’t he going to share the bed with her?
She took a couple of steps towards the bed, then took off her shoes and laid down on the bed.
