Chapter 165 - Gu Nuo'er, I Brought Money Today
Bai Yi had observed that regardless of whether Ye Siming was using a spear or a sword, he would have a domineering and cold aura.
He had no idea how Ye Siming had been trained in the past, but it was as if in Ye Siming’s perspective, he would either not attack or would deal a lethal blow without letting the enemy have a chance to fight back.
This feeling was like that of a ferocious wolf hunting in the dark night, keeping calm and remaining cautious at all times while observing its prey with extreme patience. Once it found an opportunity, it would launch a sudden attack.
Just as Bai Yi was deep in thought, Ye Siming had already put away the spear.
He reached out his hand and said calmly, “Alright, pay up.”
Bai Yi came back to his senses and quickly handed him the ten taels in his sleeve.
This time, Ye Siming didn’t decline and received it very quickly.
He turned around and was about to leave. His expression was so cold that it was as if he wasn’t the one who had handed Bai Yi a towel to wipe his sweat.
Bai Yi quickly stopped him. “Siming! If you want to use money in the future, I’ll let my wife know. You’ll get a monthly allowance. Moreover, after you officially become the princess’s guard, you’ll be paid a monthly salary from the palace.”
Ye Siming looked at him from the side, as if trying to understand what he meant. He was silent for a moment before nodding.
In the end, Bai Yi reminded him, “You must not go out to the streets to perform your spear techniques and then ask people for money. Those are performers.”
Ye Siming frowned. “I know.”
They weren’t just performers. According to Gu Nuo’er, they should be scammers.
Bai Yi watched as Ye Siming’s figure slowly walked out of the courtyard and disappeared into the night.
He let out a sigh.
To this day, he still felt that Ye Siming’s explosive personality that was hidden under his coldness came from his unfortunate past.
He hoped that the princess, who was as warm as the sun, could bring a change to Ye Siming.
The next day, Gu Nuo’er was dressed neatly and was sent to the palace gates by Wanyin.
She wore a purple cotton dress today, her hair tied up into a single bun with a few flower accessories made from rabbit fur. As she moved, the hair accessories made her look even more delicate and cute.
The child reached out her chubby hands and grabbed onto the edge of the carriage. She tried to climb up but failed.
Ye Siming was in the carriage. He leaned to the side and lifted the curtain, waiting for her to climb up by herself.
When Wanyin saw this, she felt that this Young Master Ye really didn’t know how to take care of the princess.
She couldn’t help but complain, “Young Master Ye, the princess hasn’t boarded the carriage yet, so you should help her. How can you watch the princess work hard?”
Ye Siming pondered for a moment before reaching out to grab Gu Nuo’er’s collar and pulling her into the carriage.
Wanyin was speechless.
She frowned and was about to reprimand Ye Siming that this wasn’t what she meant.
Unexpectedly, Ye Siming said to her coldly, “Thank you for the reminder.”
Then, he ordered the coachman and the carriage drove off slowly.
Gu Nuo’er leaned against the carriage’s window and waved at the stunned Wanyin.
Wanyin had never seen someone like Ye Siming who didn’t play by the rules, making her forget to tell the little princess to come back early.
When she came back to her senses, the carriage had already gone far away.
At this moment, Gu Nuo’er was sitting beside Ye Siming in the car, shifting her small feet around.
She wore new shoes today and they didn’t fit her feet very well.
She kicked off her white butterfly shoes and stretched out her toes that had white socks on like a cat’s paw. Only then did she feel much more comfortable.
Her feet felt really cramped just now!
Why didn’t Mother make her new shoes? Didn’t she know that she had grown up? Hmph!
Ye Siming saw that Gu Nuo’er was only playing with herself.
He coughed lightly and pretended to be cold. “Let’s go buy a candy figurine later. I brought money.”
