Chapter 286 – Thinking I’ve broken Gu Linzhao’s secret
After court, Xiao Yan followed Gu Lin Chao and was just about to leave the palace, when a little eunuch from Jing Ci Palace ran over.
“Duke Jing Guo, the Grand Empress Dowager has invited you.”
Xiao Yan was a little surprised.
What did that old sister of his want him for?
He couldn’t help but look at Gu Lin Chao. He coughed lightly and asked, “Do you want to go together?”
Gu Lin Chao glanced at him, his tone was very light, “No.”
Xiao Yan was embarrassed. He touched his nose and left together with the eunuch.
Watching him walk away, Gu Lin Chao remembered one thing.
Yesterday, Imperial Physician Lin gave him the antidote for the Bone Scattering Incense, and after that, because Wen Qi Qi came and suddenly left, he forgot to explain to Imperial Physician Lin that he must not tell his mother that he had been hit by the Bone Scattering Incense.
He said to Wang Houde, “Run to the Imperial Hospital and tell Imperial Physician Lin that yesterday’s incident must be kept secret.”
Wang Houde immediately went.
Gu Lin Chao vaguely put his mind at ease, it shouldn’t be too late.
After Xiao Yan arrived at Jing Ci Palace, he met with the Grand Empress Dowager.
“The Grand Empress Dowager is looking for me, is there something urgent?”
“There is no one else here, you don’t need to take it so seriously.” The Grand Empress Dowager said helplessly.
Xiao Yan smiled dryly, but he was more relaxed and took a seat on the chair, “Then Sister can say what you want to say.”
The Grand Empress Dowager deliberated for a moment before saying, “You have always been close to Chao’er, so you should know more about his health condition, right?”
Xiao Yan was stunned. He had always known that his sister was very concerned about his nephew, so when he heard what she asked, he thought she was simply worried about Gu Lin Chao, so he said with a smile, “Don’t worry, my nephew is strong and healthy. He is doing very well, so maybe in a short while, you will be able to have grandchildren again.”
The Grand Empress Dowager sighed, “If that’s the case, it would be great.”
Xiao Yan withdrew his smile and asked, “What is Sister worried about?”
“You are close to Chao’er, have you heard him talk about the abnormalities in his health?” The Grand Empress Dowager didn’t beat around the bush and asked directly.
“Physical abnormalities?” Xiao Yan looked at her strangely, thought of something and widened his eyes, “Sister, you don’t think that Heng Zhi has a hidden illness in his body, do you?”
“It’s been so long since his big wedding to Qi Qi. If there is no problem, why haven’t the two of them consummated their marriage?” The Grand Empress Dowager was at her wit’s end, and told him directly about the hidden worries in her heart.
Xiao Yan said in surprise: “The two of them have not yet consummated it?”
The Grand Empress Dowager said helplessly, “Otherwise why would I have asked you to come over and think of a solution together?”
Xiao Yan rubbed his chin. He thought he had discovered Gu Lin Chao’s secret, and he was going crazy with joy.
Gu Hengzhi ah Gu Hengzhi, you are really looked down on by your uncle.
If your rivals hear this, won’t they be laughing their heads off?
He spat in his heart, but the face made a contemplative appearance, and analyzed: “My nephew has always been in the border military camp, and never had a woman around. Is it that he has no skills in that area, so when he saw my niece-in-law, he was discouraged?”
The Grand Empress Dowager was impressed, “You are right. If it’s just because of this, then it’s fine.” As long as his root is not broken, it is good.
Xiao Yan listened. He rubbed his hands and said, “Listening to Sister’s words, it seems that you already have some kind of method?”
The Grand Empress Dowager immediately turned her head towards Mama Zeng and instructed, “Aijia remembers that there is a collection of voluptuous pictures in the side hall, you should pick some first and send them to Wang Ye.”
“I will go now.” Mama Zeng hurriedly answered.
