Chapter 171 - He Looks So Small
Gu Nuo’er’s small face was filled with panic. “Nanny!”
Ignoring the fact that there were others present, she suddenly waved her small hand.
Nanny Hu felt someone supporting her back firmly!
Almost in the next moment, Ye Siming grabbed Nanny Hu in time and helped her straighten up.
When Nanny Hu’s daughter-in-law saw that she was about to fall, a trace of panic flashed across her face. When Nanny Hu stabilized herself, she rolled her eyes in disdain.
“You’re really good at pretending. I’m telling you, if you fall, don’t expect me to take care of you! Your son can’t earn much despite working outside all day long.
“Now, we have an extra mouth to feed. My son still has to eat. If you really get injured, you’ll have to leave this house!”
Gu Nuo’er couldn’t stand it anymore. She placed her hands on her hips and said angrily, “How can you speak like this?!
“The book says that one must respect the old and love the young, but you’re so harsh on her. Aren’t you afraid of being struck by lightning? I, Baby Nuo, can’t stand watching this anymore!”
As soon as she finished speaking, a wave of dark thunder sounded in the sky.
The thunder came from afar and suddenly exploded above everyone’s heads.
Nanny Hu’s daughter-in-law was shocked. She looked up at the clouds. The sky that was still clear and bright just now had suddenly turned dark!
In the thick clouds, bolts of lightning were like purple snakes slithering around, instilling fear in people.
Gu Nuo’er scratched her head and looked at the sky in confusion.
When had she reached the stage of being able to perform magic through words?
Had she become so amazing?
Although Gu Nuo’er didn’t know what was going on, Nanny Hu’s daughter-in-law was terrified.
It was said that the little princess was born with auspiciousness. Could it be that the heavens would strike whomever the princess wanted to be struck by lightning?
Nanny Hu’s daughter-in-law quickly lowered her head and bowed to apologize to Gu Nuo’er.
“Your Highness, please forgive my rashness. After listening to your teachings, I’ll definitely serve my mother-in-law well in the future and never speak nonsense again!”
Gu Nuo’er raised her eyebrows. “I hope you really know your mistake. Go and heat up some food for Nanny Hu now!”
In the past, Nanny Hu had always been the one serving Cuixiu. Now that it was Cuixiu’s turn to serve her mother-in-law, she really found it hard to accept.
Hence, she hesitated for a while, as if she wanted to find an excuse not to go.
However, in the short moment of hesitation, the dark lightning in the sky sounded again.
Only then did Nanny Hu’s daughter-in-law nod hurriedly and run into the kitchen.
When Ye Siming saw this, he quietly put away the hand that he had kept behind his back.
His expression was cold and deep. No one saw what he had done.
Gu Nuo’er supported Nanny Hu and pushed open the door to enter the house. Her pink lips continued talking, “Nanny, why don’t you follow Nuo’er back to the palace to stay?
“In the palace, with Mother and me protecting you, no one will bully you. Just let this bad woman stay by herself!”
Nanny Hu smiled and shook her head. She guided Gu Nuo’er. “Princess, please follow this servant.”
Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming followed Nanny Hu, lifting the curtains to enter the innermost room.
The furnishings in the room were simple, but the charcoal fire was very strong. On the bed, a baby less than four months old was sleeping soundly.
Perhaps the environment had made him feel very at ease. His small lips were pouted and his cheeks were red from sleeping. He looked very adorable.
His chubby face only had two slits for eyes, a small nose, and a small mouth.
Gu Nuo’er leaned to the side curiously and said softly, “Wow, he looks so small.”
Nanny Hu smiled kindly. “Your Highness was even smaller than him when you were young. You were like a kitten when you cried, making one’s heart ache.”
