Chapter 299 – The Girl’s Soft Hands Suddenly Covered Up
When she arrived at the front hall, she wanted to go straight back to the Shen Xiang Courtyard, but she was called by Gu Lin Chao.
“Wang Ye?” Wen Qi Qi looked at him doubtfully.
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze paused on her small face and said, “Go in and have a seat.” After saying that, he went into the front hall.
Seeing this, Wen Qi Qi suppressed the doubts in her heart and followed him.
When she entered the front hall, Gu Lin Chao had already sat down at the center of the room.
Seeing her come in, he said in a warm voice, “Sit down.”
Wen Qi Qi complied and sat down next to him, then glanced at his face and asked, “Does Wang Ye have something to say to me?”
Gu Lin Chao’s gaze fell on her small face, his finger rubbed the rim of the cup, and then he said, “Don’t worry too much about your second brother, he is good at martial arts, and he is also vigilant, this time he was sent to clear out the bandits, and it is also a chance for him to practice.”
Wen Qi Qi froze and nodded, “I understand Wang Ye’s bitterness, after all, if Second Brother wants to gain a foothold in the dynasty, he still has to rely on his military prowess. Since he chose the path of a military general, I’m sure he himself is mentally prepared to have to charge into battle for the court at any time.”
Hearing this, Gu Lin Chao’s face slightly softened. He should have known that this girl was always very perceptive in the face of great matters of right and wrong, and did not take rash actions.
Just now, when he suddenly sent Wen Ting Xuan to fight the bandits, he was actually a little worried that she would be unhappy about it.
Now after hearing what she said, he finally let go of his heart.
Wen Qi Qi also realized that he had called her in because he was afraid that she would be upset, so he had specially explained it to her.
Gu Lin Chao was the regent under one person and above ten thousand people. When he did something, did he need to explain it to anyone?
Yet he had solemnly explained it to her.
Thinking, she blinked her eyes and suddenly reached out to cover the back of his hand resting on the table, “Is Wang Ye afraid that I’ll be upset?”
As the girl’s soft hand suddenly covered his, Gu Lin Chao was stunned. His gaze fell on her small hand that covered the back of his hand, his heartbeat was suddenly a bit disorganized, and sweat broke out on his palm.
Only after a long time did his disordered heartbeat calm down, and his eyes looked elsewhere, “Ben Wang …… the study still has political affairs to deal with, so I will go over first.”
After saying that, he hesitated for a moment before removing her hand and getting up to leave.
Only when he went out, he didn’t know whether he didn’t pay attention to his feet or if he was in too much of a hurry, but he actually kicked the threshold, and his entire body stumbled.
“Wang Ye be careful.” Wen Qi Qi rose and rushed over, holding his arm.
Gu Lin Chao’s handsome face burned, his thick eyelashes fluttered a few times, and he said in a low voice, “I’m fine.” After saying that, he pushed her hand away and left with quick steps.
Looking at the man who was almost fleeing, Wen Qi Qi smiled wryly. Gu Lin Chao was as unflappable as ever.
Returning to the Shen Xiang Courtyard, she took out the letter Wen Ting Xuan gave her and read it carefully.
It turned out that the letter was sent from Tunzhou, and it explained the recent movements of the Chi Yu Lou.
The five Elders had a clear division of labour and each of them had their own duties, and all of them were on track.
Especially Hundred Flowers Pavilion. Since it reopened two days ago, the business has been as hot as she had envisioned.
Because of the good publicity and the after-effects of her appearance on the stage with Wen Ting Xuan, the customers that day had nearly overwhelmed the Hundred Flowers House.
Through the letter, Wen Qi Qi seemed to have seen the smiling, creased face of the Fifth Elder.
She smiled and put the letters away.
The Wen family had long known about Wen Ting Xuan’s success in the martial arts examination, but before they had time to rejoice, they heard that Wen Ting Xuan was going to lead the troops to Kunhu Mountain to fight against the bandits.
Everyone was a bit confused.
How could you receive an official position and be sent to fight against the bandits?
There has never been such a precedent ah.
“…… Did you offend the Regent?” Xu Shi couldn’t help but open her mouth and ask.
