“It’s true.” Lu Qiao nodded and smilingly took another box and whispered, “Miss, it’s all gold and silver jewelry, take a look.”
Wen Qi Qi suppressed the excitement in her heart and couldn’t wait to open the boxes one by one.
Sure enough, as Lu Qiao said, they were all gold and silver jewelry.
Of course, there was a letter in each box, signed by which family and which lady.
Wen Qi Qi put down the box. Sitting down again, she thought that so many people came to give her gifts, it can’t be that her character suddenly popular. It should be related to Gu Lin Chao.
Could it be that since she followed Gu Lin Chao to the Ministry of War and showed her face there, those people thought that Gu Lin Chao valued her, and that’s why they asked their own ladies to send her gifts and wanted to make friends with her?
The more Wen Qi Qi thought about it, the more she thought it was possible.
Those people are really good, although she accepted the gift, she will not be soft.
Thinking of one thing, she twisted her head and asked Lu Qiao, “When you received these gifts, were they seen by Wang Ye?”
With Gu Lin Chao’s nature, if he knew about it, he would definitely disapprove of her doing so, and might even ask her to return the gifts.
Lu Qiao froze, “Housekeeper Chen saw it.”
Wen Qi Qi’s face collapsed. If Housekeeper Chen had seen it, how could Gu Lin Chao not know about it?
What a waste of happiness.
“Return these gifts …….” She endured the pain in her heart and said.
Lu Qiao looked at her in surprise, “Miss ……” was she serious?
After this period of understanding, she found that the young lady is still a fan of wealth. She is especially fond of money and property.
In the face of so much gold and silver, the lady can actually say the words to return them. The sun really rose from the west.
“If I don’t return it, do I have to wait for Wang Ye to say it in person?” Wen Qi Qi said depressed. She didn’t dare to look at the gold and silver jewels on the table, because she was afraid that if she looked at them more, she would be more and more reluctant to give them up.
But people say, ‘If you can’t spare the cub, you can’t trap the wolf.’
With Gu Lin Chao’s nature, he is definitely not in favor of her receiving bribes. Since that was the case, it would be better to return it, so that she can still win goodwill.
When she thought of something, she whirled and said, “Not only do we have to return it, we have to return it in a high profile.”
Lu Qiao looked at her confusedly, “High-profile?”
“At least let the Regent know.” Wen Qi Qi said with a smile. In contrast to the depression she had just felt, she was in high spirits again.
Because although she had to returned these gifts, but perhaps, she can still get compensation from Gu Lin Chao.
Her eyes flashed cunningly, and she said to Lu Qiao, “Invite those people who sent gifts to come here.”
Gu Lin Chao had to go to the military camp, and when he passed by the front yard, he heard lively noises coming from the front hall.
“What’s going on?” He glanced at Wang Houde.
“This servant will go over and take a look.” Wang Houde ran into the front hall in a flash and came back a moment later, “Master, it’s Wang Fei.”
Wen Qi Qi?
Gu Lin Chao’s eyebrows knitted lightly and he couldn’t help but lift his steps towards the front hall.
Only when he reached the door of the front hall, could he hear Wen Qi Qi’s familiar voice coming from it.
“Tell your madam that she should not send gifts to this Princess in the future. Our Prince is fair and selfless, wise and clean, and will not allow such crooked wind in the court.”
Gu Lin Chao paused and surprise crossed his brow.
Within a few moments, the servants of each house, received their own gifts back and withdrew from the front hall.
Wen Qi Qi had long seen Gu Lin Chao, and at this time got up and walked out, “Why is the Wang Ye here?” The tone of her voice was so surprised.
Translators Note: Qi Qi is such a money grubber 😂
