“These official sees the Regent and the Regent Princess.”
A crowd of officials stepped forward and saluted.
“Please do not salute.” Gu Lin Chao raised his hand in the air, and then, accompanied by the officials, lead Wen Qi Qi towards the high platform of the martial arts arena.
In the center of the martial arts arena, a circular ring was set up at this time, and the ring was surrounded by a high platform to enable the officials to watch the contestants.
The officials from the Ministry of Military Affairs were following along, reporting to Gu Lin Chao about tomorrow’s competition.
Wen Qi Qi listened at the side and realized that apart from the martial arts competition, there were also archery and horseback riding competitions.
As a military official, one must not only be good at martial arts, but also at archery and horseback riding.
However, Wen Qi Qi believed that with Wen Ting Xuan’s skills, he would be able to handle tomorrow’s test with ease.
The first day was the archery competition, the second day was the riding competition, and the third day was the martial arts competition.
Wen Qi Qi pondered whether she could ask Gu Lin Chao to bring her here for these three days, as she wanted to come and cheer her second brother on in the competition.
Deep in thought about things, she didn’t pay attention to her feet for a while.
When she was walking down the high platform, she accidentally missed a step.
She let out a low cry and was about to fall down when a strong arm suddenly reached over and grabbed her waist at the right time.
“Be careful!” The man’s low voice sounded in her ear.
Wen Qi Qi blinked. Before she could react, in the next moment, her whole body was held upright and the hand that was around her waist was quickly withdrawn.
She froze and looked towards the man beside her.
The man’s face was still cold, unsmiling, and exuding authority. He had one hand behind his back and listened to the officials beside him, as if he was not the one who had just helped her.
The other officials also did not seem to notice the small incident.
Wen Qi Qi secretly sighed with relief. Fortunately, she did not make a fool of herself.
She picked up the corner of her skirt and carefully walked down the steps.
Although Gu Lin Chao was listening to the official’s report, he kept his eyes on the girl beside him, so he was able to catch her in time when she stumbled.
However, although he looked as usual, but behind his back, his fingers which were quietly curled tightly, gave away a hint of something strange.
The girl’s soft and slender waist swept through his mind.
A word flashed in his heart: no more than a handful.
Gu Lin Chao came to the martial arts arena today, only to examine the site and understand the system and matters of the competition. After learning about it, he took Wen Qi Qi and left the military camp.
The officials escorted them to the outside of the military camp.
As soon as they left, the minds of the people were enlivened.
Who said that the Regent did not like Wen Qi Qi?
If he didn’t like her, why did he even bring her to the military camp?
It is obvious that he is very concerned about it.
The officials thought they had figured out Gu Lin Chao’s mind and had some more thoughts in their hearts.
The regent has always been indifferent, so they have no way to get in touch with him, but now they can start with Wen Qi Qi’s side.
Sitting in the carriage, Wen Qi Qi suddenly sneezed.
She reached out and rubbed her nose. Who was talking about her behind her back?
“Are you cold?” Gu Lin Chao heard it and asked in a warm voice.
Wen Qi Qi shook her head, “No, I’m not cold.”
Gu Lin Chao’s touched his cloak, paused, and withdrew his hand quietly.
The carriage drove into the long street. Hearing the lively sounds coming from outside, Wen Qi Qi suddenly said, “Your Majesty, this consort is hungry …..
Translators Note: Gu Lin Chao said come correct cause Qi Qi has no waist 😂
