Guo Huai smiled. Although his heart was a little heavy, he could only bow, “I thank Your Majesty.”
“Go down.” Gu Heng at this time did not care to be around him anymore and said in a deep voice.
“This old minister excuses himself.” Guo Huai retreated.
As soon as he left, Gu Heng heavily smashed the ink stone on the imperial desk.
Hao Fu Lu was startled and fell to his knees, “Your Majesty, calm your anger.”
Gu Heng was furious and stormed around the study before he gradually calmed down, but his eyes were still full of gloom.
Gu Lin Chao!
His eyes narrowed.
Hao Fu Lu knelt on the floor with uneasiness building up in his heart.
The next day, the Regent’s Residence.
After dressing up, she thought that Gu Lin Chao should be coming back, so she asked Lu Qiao to carry the food box and went straight to the study.
Gu Lin Chao had just returned and had just sat down when he saw Wen Qi Qi enter with a food box.
“Good morning, Your Majesty.” Wen Qi Qi greeted lightly, “I thought that it was time for Your Majesty to return, so I asked the kitchen to prepare some breakfast, and I would like to have breakfast with Your Majesty.”
When Gu Lin Chao saw her, he was distracted for a moment.
In his mind, he remembered what Wang Houde said to him after he returned from the military camp yesterday.
Did she really miss him that much?
During his daze, the girl’s hand suddenly held onto his arm.
“What is Wang Ye thinking about? Hurry over to have breakfast, if you don’t eat it, it will get cold.”
Gu Lin Chao raised his eyes and looked at her steadily.
Wen Qi Qi was stunned. She raised her hand and touched her face and said in confusion, “What’s wrong, why is Wang Ye looking at me like that?” After a pause, she looked down at her dress, “Is it because my dress is inappropriate?”
At that, Gu Lin Chao’s slightly closed eyes flashed with a smile and he shook his head, “Nothing.” Saying that, he stood up, then hesitated. He suddenly took her hand back and led her to the round table.
Wen Qi Qi froze.
She looked down at the hand he held and was very surprised.
Gu Lin Chao actually took the initiative to hold her hand, which was unprecedented.
However, his hand was very large and warm, and it felt very comfortable to be held by him.
Wen Qi Qi was a little embarrassed.
After finishing the meal, Wen Qi Qi said, “Wang Ye is going to the Ministry of War later, right?”
Gu Lin Chao nodded, “Yes.”
Wen Qi Qi’s peach blossom eyes looked at him in a misty manner, “Then can Wang Ye take this consort along?”
“You want to go?” Gu Lin Chao was a little surprised. Then he thought of something and asked, “Is it for the sake of Ting Xuan?”
“Yes, last time I heard from my second brother, he signed up for this martial arts competition, I want to go to cheer him on.” Wen Qi Qi’s small face was serious.
Gu Lin Chao’s sentence of refusal was swallowed back and he nodded, “Yes.”
“Thank you, Wang Ye.” Wen Qi Qi thanked him joyfully. She then looked at her clothes and said uncertainly, “Is it appropriate for me to wear this one, should I change into men’s clothes?”
Gu Lin Chao thought of yesterday’s incident and quickly stopped her, “No, this is fine.”
Wen Qi Qi looked at him with some doubts.
It always felt that his tone was a bit eager.
“Since Wang Ye said there is no problem, then I will save myself from having to change again.”
Gu Lin Chao vaguely breathed a sigh of relief in his heart and got up, “Let’s go.”
“Okay.” Wen Qi Qi hurriedly followed his footsteps.
Gu Lin Chao heard her tiny steps behind him and couldn’t help but slow down his pace until she followed him.
He was going to have someone prepare a horse, but considering that she was also going, he temporarily changed to a carriage and also had someone prepare snacks.
When they arrived at the Ministry of War, the officials involved in the examination had arrived early, and the participants of this examination had also arrived and were waiting outside the venue.
When they saw Gu Lin Chao coming, the officials and the contestants immediately came forward and saluted.
The officials were not so surprised to see Wen Qi Qi here again, but the young contestants were not.
At first, when they saw such a beautiful woman in this martial arts arena, where all of them were men, they looked straight at her.
