The housekeeper’s face changed dramatically, and he quickly ran in to report.
Jue Wang was still in his concubine’s room at this moment, enjoying the beauty’s service.
When he got the news, he was astonished and raised his palm to push the beauty away.
The corners of his mouth hooked up into a smile, “It seems that he treats that little girl well. It is indeed very unusual ah!”
He rose up, washed and dressed, and went out.
When he arrived at the main room, he saw that Gu Lin Chao was already in a seat.
Just like a few years ago, he still has the same temperament. He raised his hands and feet with ease.
He paused in his steps and thought, ‘That dead brother of his, has raised a good son.’
He raised his feet and walked in, smiling, “My nephew arrived earlier than Ben Wang expected.”
Gu Lin Chao raised his eyes and glanced at him. For the sake of etiquette, he stood up and nodded lightly, “Jue Wang Shu.” It was his greeting.
“Lin Chao, I haven’t seen you for many years, you still look the same.” Jue Wang took a seat in the main seat and gave him a glance. His words were full of machinations.
“The same goes for Jue Wang Shu.” Gu Lin Chao’s voice was clear and cold. He switched his words and got to the point, “Jue Wang Shu took my wife, where is she now?”
“Why is my nephew so nervous? Ben Wang saw his niece-in-law likes Juezhou very much. You two should stay in Juezhou for a few more days.” Jue Wang said politely.
Gu Lin Chao said indifferently, “I appreciate your kindness, but there are still many matters in the court, so I really have to leave, so please requesting Jue Wang Shu to bring out my wife.”
Jue Wang sighed regretfully, “You come here once in a while. Ben Wang originally wanted to do his best as a host, but since you have to rush back, then Ben Wang will not force you.” After a pause, he then said, “It is still early, niece-in-law is probably not up yet. She is staying in the guest room. Ben Wang will have someone take you there to find her.”
He said, “Take the Regent over to the Regent’s Consort.”
“Yes.” The servant respectfully answered.
Gu Lin Chao glanced at Jue Wang, stood up and followed the servant outside.
When he arrived at the guest room, he saw at a glance Wen Qi Qi lying on the bed, unable to move, with two maids beside her feeding her.
Hearing the footsteps, all the people in the room looked over.
The two maids were stunned, but Wen Qi Qi was so excited that she almost shed tear. It was a pity that her acupuncture points were not yet released and she could not speak.
Gu Lin Chao’s heart tightened. He took a few quick steps, reached the bed, and helped her up.
“How are you?” He asked in a warm voice.
Wen Qi Qi looked at him blearily and did not say anything.
He froze and realized that she had been hit in her mute point.
He frowned and raised his hand to release her acupuncture points.
As soon as she got free, Wen Qi Qi excitedly tugged on his sleeve, “You really came.”
Because she hadn’t spoken for a long time, her voice was a little hoarse, but Gu Lin Chao could still hear her happiness.
He originally wanted to reprimand her, but when he saw her like this, he swallowed back the words of reproach.
The corners of his mouth curved and he reached out and rubbed her head, unable to resist asking, “If Ben Wang did not come, what were you going to do?”
Wen Qi Qi looked at his face and whispered: “I hoped that you would come on the one hand, but on the other hand, I actually did not want you to come ……”
“Why?” Gu Lin Chao was stunned.
Wen Qi Qi looked at the maids in the room. She suddenly went over to him, leaned into his ear, and whispered, “Because I feel that Jue Wang is not a good person, and he deliberately brought me to Juezhou, I fear that he wants to do you harm, so I don’t want you to take risks for me.”
