Chapter 177 - You're Unconvinced?
The princess’s carriage first turned to the Bai Manor. Ye Siming was wearing a refined bamboo-colored robe today.
He wore a jade head gear and looked fair and handsome, having the appearance of a good-looking scholar.
Gu Nuo’er leaned against the window and chuckled, waving her small hands. “Elder Brother Siming~ You’re so good-looking~”
Ye Siming got into the carriage and ignored her laughter.
Instead, he took out something wrapped in wax paper from his sleeve and pretended to be cold as he said, “Madam Bai made it. Take it and eat it.”
Gu Nuo’er opened it curiously and saw that there were two sweet pancakes wrapped in the wax paper!
The child blinked in confusion. “Auntie Bai made this? But why is it burnt?”
Ye Siming looked a little unnatural. “How would I know? Maybe the fire was too big.”
His slender fingers reached over and helped Gu Nuo’er remove the black coating on the sweet pancake. “The inside can be eaten. Hurry up and eat them. Otherwise, if you get hungry later, there’s no one who will care about you, General Bai won’t let me kill sparrows in the state school.”
Gu Nuo’er blinked her sparkling eyes.
She really wanted to tell Ye Siming that there was a dining room in the state school.
However, since these were made by Auntie Bai, she decided to give it a try first.
The child opened her mouth and took a bite from Ye Siming’s hand.
Ye Siming looked at her nervously and asked, “How does it taste?”
The taste… was a little strange.
It seemed to be very sweet, but it also seemed like undercooked dough. It was so tough that it was hard on her two rows of small teeth.
However, facing Ye Siming’s probing gaze, she nodded silently. “It’s a little good.”
Ye Siming immediately raised his eyebrows slightly and his thin lips curled into a smile.
It seemed that the so-called sweet pancake wasn’t that difficult to learn.
His research in the kitchen this morning was not in vain.
However, why didn’t this child show the same happy expression on her face she showed when she ate the sweet pancake made by Nanny Hu last time?
Could it be that the sweet pancakes he made were lacking in something?
Ye Siming held up the remaining sweet pancake and asked, “Want another bite?”
Gu Nuo’er had yet to finish chewing the food in her mouth. She shook her head like a rattle. “No, no, no. Baby Nuo, don’t want anymore.”
Ye Siming frowned suspiciously. Coincidentally, the carriage stopped.
The coachman lifted the curtain. “Princess, we’ve arrived at the state school.”
Ye Siming got out of the carriage by himself as usual. Then, he grabbed Gu Nuo’er’s collar and slowly brought her down.
A stifled chuckle suddenly sounded from the surroundings.
Ye Siming frowned and looked over. It was a young master who dressed like a profligate.
He pointed at Ye Siming and Gu Nuo’er and said to his friend, “This is the first time I’ve seen such a rough method.
“Our academy is really declining by the year. People can come in to study regardless of their quality.”
The profligate son’s friend laughed loudly at the side.
Halfway through laughing, the person who had laughed the loudest just now felt something hit his forehead.
What followed was a sharp pain as if someone had pinched him.
At the same time, a stone clattered to the ground.
He touched his forehead and cursed, “Who hit me?!”
Ye Siming looked at him coldly. “I did.”
“I’ve only scolded you a little, but you’re unconvinced and actually threw a stone at me? Which family’s young master are you? Tell me your name if you dare.
“If you don’t have any manners, then you don’t have any manners. If you’re poor, then you’re poor! I’ll go tell Teacher on you later and make sure that you won’t even be able to come to school!”
Ye Siming looked at him fixedly, making the other party’s heart tremble.
“What? You’re unconvinced!?”
