Although Gu Lin Chao was thin, he was tall and thus still had some weight, but Wen Qi Qi didn’t have to put in much effort to help him into the temple.
Gu Lin Chao rubbed his dizzy head and realized that his little consort, who looked delicate, had a lot of strength.
Wen Qi Qi ran out to lead the horse to the eaves outside and tied it up before she walked in again.
When she saw that his face was covered with rain, she hurriedly came over and raised her sleeve to wipe his face, and at the end, she even reached out to probe his forehead.
Gu Lin Chao froze.
Wen Qi Qi quickly withdrew her hand and said with a sigh of relief, “Fortunately, it’s not a fever.”
Gu Lin Chao leaned against the wall, his voice was low, “Ben Wang is fine.”
“But you don’t look like you’re fine at all.” Wen Qi Qi frowned and said as she anxiously walked around the dilapidated temple, “You got wet so you have to take off your clothes and dry them, but there is no fire. How can I make a fire?”
Gu Lin Chao leaned against the wall. He saw her in her wet dress, wandering around in front of his eyes, and a trace of anxiety crept up between his eyebrows. His phoenix eyes were dark and dark, and he raised his hand to pull the collar, before speaking in a hoarse voice, “Don’t wander in front of this King.”
Wen Qi Qi stopped in her tracks and gave him a somewhat unhappy look, “Does Wang Ye dislike this consort?”
“Ben Wang ……” Gu Lin Chao’s lips opened, and then frowned, “No.”
Wen Qi Qi saw that he looked uncomfortable to the extreme, and did not bother with him. She looked around the broken temple and searched for herself.
She hoped to find a flint or something to light a fire.
She searched through every corner and finally found a flint. It was probably left by a traveler who had stopped here before, and there was a pile of unused firewood in the corner, which she carried to Gu Li Chao’s side.
But she hadn’t used this kind of fire-lighting stone, and it was quite a struggle to use it.
After knocking it for half a day, she couldn’t get the fire lit.
“Your Majesty, do you know how to use it?” She held the flint stone in front of Gu Lin Chao and looked at him pitifully.
Gu Lin Chao paused for a moment, then reached out to take it over.
Wen Qi Qi kept her eyes on his movements, but he didn’t really move much, just knocked it twice and a cluster of flames jumped up.
She was delighted, and quickly brought the hay over.
Soon, the hay was burning, and Wen Qi Qi threw the lighted hay on the firewood that had been set up beforehand.
In a short time, the fire licked up the firewood, and the wood burned quickly, emitting a crisp sound.
Wen Qi Qi sighed with relief, and busily wrung out Gu Lin Chao’s outer robe and hung it on a stick to dry and roast.
“Your Majesty, are you more comfortable now?” She took the time to ask Gu Lin Chao as she rested by the fire.
The light of the fire reflected on Gu Lin Chao’s face, which was red.
Wen Qi Qi froze. At first she thought it was the firelight, but upon closer inspection, she realized that it was not, and that Gu Lin Chao’s face was flushed.
She couldn’t help but get closer to him and said worriedly, “Wang Ye looks sick again. How can this be done? The rain outside is so heavy, and I don’t know when it will stop, where should I go to find a doctor for you?”
When the girl’s distressed voice fell on his ears, Gu Lin Chao, who had his eyes closed, opened his eyes, only to see her sitting next to him. The fragrance of her body burst into his nose, making him more and more agitated.
“Ben Wang is not sick ……” you just need to stay away from Ben Wang.
However, he did not say the latter half of the sentence after all.
“At a time like this, why is Wang Ye still acting tough?” Wen Qi Qi frowned. She saw that he was still wearing a wet inner robe, so she paused and stretched out a hand to untie the belt around his waist, “The clothes on your body are too wet, it’s better to take it off first. Your outer robe has been resting by the fire and is bit drier, you can change into it and be more comfortable.”
