As she was talking, she had already run to the corner and carried a pile of hay over. She then spread it on the ground next to the fire and said attentively, “Wang Ye come over and lie down to rest for a while.”
Yesterday, after Gu Lin Chao learned that she had been brought to Juezhou by Jue Wang, he rode his horse all the way to Juezhou. Additionally, he hadn’t slept all night, plus he had been hit by the Bone Dispersing Incense and injured his own arm later on, so by now, he was already extremely tired, but he still had worries in his heart.
Although it was still raining outside, this was after all the middle of nowhere, and he was worried that if he fell asleep, he would put Wen Qi Qi in danger.
“I’m not sleepy.” He shook his head and just sat down on the hay, but did not lie down.
Wen Qi Qi could clearly see that there was a hard-to-conceal look of fatigue between his eyebrows, and when she heard his words, she did not believe him.
She warmly advised: “Wang Ye is my support, if Wang Ye falls, then I have no support, so Wang Ye must take care of his health, just for my sake, okay?”
Gu Lin Chao was stunned and a ripple started in his heart because of what she said.
She treats him as her mountain of support?
This feeling was something he had never appreciated before.
He was the backer of the people of Daye, the backer of the court, but no one had ever told him, so seriously, that he was her backer.
After a long time, he said: “Even without me, you still have the Wen family ……”
Her parents, and her two brothers all loved her so much that even without him, she could still be fine.
Wen Qi Qi smiled and shook her head like a rattle, “How can it be the same? You are my husband, my only one. Because although they value me, I am not their only one.
For example, my parents, in addition to me as a daughter, also have my two brothers. And my two brothers, in addition to me, they have their own wives and will have children in the future.
You are different, you are my husband. If there is no incident, you are the one who will accompany me to old age, the one who is closest to me, and if you fall, I will become a widow and live a miserable and lonely life ……”
Saying that, her eyes were red and tears slipped from her eyes. Still, she pretended to be stubborn and said, “So Wang Ye is not allowed to fall down, you have to protect me for a lifetime.”
Alas, her acting skills are getting better and better, even she almost believed it.
Sure enough, after Gu Lin Chao heard her words, his heart had softened to a mess.
He raised his hand, and with a thin calloused thumb, swiped across her cheeks, wiping the teardrops off her face.
“Don’t worry, I won’t fall down.” After a pause, “I will protect you for a lifetime and will not let you be alone.”
Wen Qi Qi sniffed, her peach blossom eyes blinked. Then, was this a promise given to her by Gu Lin Chao?
“Really?” She looked at him with teary eyes, “You promise?”
“Mm.” Gu Lin Chao nodded, “Ben Wang never breaks his promise.”
Wen Qi Qi’s heart was wildly happy. Her face turned from cloudy to sunny, and staring at his handsome face, she couldn’t help but say, “Then you won’t have concubines in the future, right?”
Gu Lin Chao looked at her strangely, “Why do you say that?”
Wen Qi Qi pouted her lips, “You men like to have three wives and four concubines. You are only married to me now, but there is still a long life ahead, who knows if you will one day see a seductive bitch and bring her back to the house.”
Gu Lin Chao frowned, “How can you be so rude?”
Wen Qi Qi said in her heart, ‘I could be more rude, but I know your rules, so I had to change my mouth’, “I was just angry and I said something out of turn.”
