When giving Gu Lin Chao a salute, they were also distracted, their eyes uncontrollably glancing at Wen Qi Qi.
What a beautiful woman!
Gu Lin Chao’s handsome face suddenly cooled down, and a stormy haze covered his eyebrows.
He swept his gaze around the room and then took Wen Qi Qi’s hand in his palm in front of everyone, silently declaring that Wen Qi Qi belonged to him.
Wen Qi Qi looked at him in surprise.
This guy has always been a rule-follower, and has never been willing to exceed the rules in front of outsiders, but this time ……
She bit her lip and looked down at his big hand that was holding her hand tightly, and a sweetness flooded her heart.
This kind of domineering Gu Lin Chao, is what she has never seen.
However, she likes it.
The people who were caught by his gaze felt an astonishment in their hearts, and they hung their heads down, not daring to look around again.
“Before the official competition, there is still a little time. You first run around the martial arts arena, three laps, so that this King can see your foundation.” Gu Lin Chao’s voice seemed to be wrapped in frost.
The officials secretly wiped their sweat. In their hearts, they cursed these participants. They really don’t know how to live and die. How can they look at the Regent’s Princess? They also have to face the huge pressure from the Regent.
When the participants heard the words, they felt as if a thunderbolt had struck them, and their faces changed again and again.
Although today’s archery test is the relatively easy one among the three exams, now they have to run three laps around the martial arts arena before the competition. Additionally, the arena is so big. How will they have the strength to aim at the arrow target then?
But since the Regent has spoken, naturally no one has the courage to refute.
As the Regent was the chief examiner today, who would dare to offend him?
Wen Tian Xuan, who was standing with the contestants, cursed these people in his heart.
They were all lustful fools. Gu Lin Chao was standing there, and they dared to look at his little sister. Wasn’t that looking for death?
Thinking, that he came out of the line towards Gu Lin Chao and bowed with both hands and said: “Your Majesty, my stomach suddenly hurts and I want to go to the toilet.”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at him and nodded his head, “Permission granted.”
When the others saw this, they hurriedly followed suit, “Reporting to the Regent, I also ……”
“Those who have not yet started running, run one more lap.” Gu Lin Chao interrupted their words with a clear and cold expression.
Those few people resentfully closed their mouths and only resigned themselves to go running.
However, in their hearts, they muttered, ‘Why was that boy so lucky that the Regent gave permission without even thinking about it?’
Wen Ting Xuan who had escaped, did not go to the toilet, but walked towards the woods not far from there after making a few eye signals with Wen Qi Qi.
Wen Qi Qi tugged on Gu Lin Chao’s sleeve and whispered, “Your Majesty, I want to go to the toilet.”
Gu Lin Chao had long since taken in the eye communication of this pair of siblings. Hearing this, he admonished, “Be careful.”
“Got it.” Wen Qi Qi answered, and then also walked towards that woods.
When she arrived, Wen Ting Xuan took a stick and squatted on the ground to poke an ant nest.
When she stood still, a few ants crawled onto her shoes in a helpless manner.
Startled, she jumped up, stomped her feet a few times, then stepped back and said in annoyance, “Second Brother, why are you so bored. Why are you poking the nest of ants?”
“Just a few ants, and you’re scared like this, you’re really worthless!” Wen Ting Xuan waved the stick in his hand and said spitefully.
“Ants can also bite, and they can crawl on people’s bodies, which can be itchy. If you’re not afraid, just stay there and let the ants crawl on you.” Wen Qi Qi said with a frown.
Seeing her serious face, Wen Ting Xuan stopped teasing her. He dropped the stick in his hand and got up, “Okay, okay, I won’t play with the ants anymore, okay?”
She didn’t know whether it was a psychological effect or not, but Wen Qi Qi felt that her body was starting to itch, so she stood under a nearby tree and wanted to check if there were ants on her skirt.
But as soon as she stood under the tree, she noticed that there was someone in the tree.
