Chapter 169 - He's That Vicious Person
Nanny Hu’s turbid gaze took a long time to clear up.
She looked at Gu Nuo’er’s round face that was very close in front of her.
Nanny Hu’s eyes turned moist. “Am I dreaming again? Little Princess, why did you come to my dream again?”
Gu Nuo’er’s cries were soft. She placed her small head on Nanny Hu’s chest. “Nanny, you’re not dreaming. I’ve really come to see you!
“Why didn’t you say anything even though you’re suffering like this? If my mother knew, she would definitely help you!”
Nanny Hu knew that the little princess was smart and must have figured out her current situation long ago.
She shook her head slightly and smiled weakly. “Little princess, that’s my daughter-in-law. Why would I hold it against her?
“My son works outside all year round and rarely comes back. It’s normal for her to be angry, but it was also very hard on her too. She has just given birth to a child.
“Our family’s conditions are tough. We’re the ones who have let her down, so you don’t have to worry. I’m not living a tough life. Don’t cry, good child.”
She reached out her pale hand and wiped away Gu Nuo’er’s tears with trembling hands.
However, Gu Nuo’er cried even harder when she heard this.
It was no wonder that when Nanny Hu left, Gu Nuo’er noticed that Nanny Hu’s physical and mental states would become much weaker a month later.
Gu Nuo’er could predict that Nanny Hu would fall in these two days and suffer from a lingering effect of an illness, then eventually die after less than half a month.
Therefore, she specially rushed over today to help Nanny Hu avoid this calamity.
But now that she saw Nanny Hu suffer like this, she regretted letting Nanny leave the palace.
At least in the palace, no one dared to bully her!
Gu Nuo’er was holding Nanny Hu’s palm with her small hands and crying silently.
Ye Siming said coldly, “Wait here. The people from the government office are here. I’ll go out and deal with them.”
After saying that, he lifted the curtain and went out.
Gu Nuo’er’s face was filled with anger. “She was at fault first, yet she still dared to report this matter to the authorities!”
Nanny Hu felt uneasy instead. “Did my daughter-in-law cause trouble again?”
At the door, the woman led the two representatives from the government office in. She said, “Officers, I was really scared to death earlier.
“Those two children looked young and spoke in a domineering tone! One moment, they said that they wanted to capture me and report me to the government office. At the next moment, they said that they brought the emperor’s imperial edict here.
“I was afraid that I had encountered robbers and quickly invited you guys over. My mother-in-law is muddle-headed. If she was deceived by someone outside and implicated me and my child, we would be in trouble. Isn’t that right?”
When the two soldiers from the government office heard this, their attitude was also very rude and unreasonable. One of them directly shouted into the courtyard, “Where are those two children? Come out!”
As soon as he finished speaking, he felt a cold light flash in front of him.
One of the officers quickly retreated, and a bit of his hair was cut off.
Neither of them saw how this young man appeared in front of them and when he had drawn out the sharp blade.
They only knew that a cold glint flashed from his hand and they were almost killed!
There was such a vicious person in the capital?!
Ye Siming sheathed his sword with a cold expression. There was a hint of danger in his gaze as if he was looking at his prey.
He raised his eyebrows and said, “If you show disrespect to the princess again, what’s cut off next won’t just be your hair.”
The soldier who had been threatened by him with a cold sword was about to go forward and flare up.
However, his colleague suddenly grabbed him.
They whispered to each other—
“This is bad. They should really be people from the palace! I recognize the sword in this youth’s hand. It used to be General Bai Yi’s sword!
“He’s Ye Siming, the vicious person who rejected the emperor’s bestowment of the title Youth Bai Ze!”
