Chapter 186 - Targeted by Something
The female teacher’s surname was Zhang and her voice was gentle. When she saw Gu Nuo’er, she smiled at her.
She then handed over a small pink flower that came with moist soil.
Everyone else was given yellow flowers, but she was the only one given a pink one.
Gu Nuo’er opened her eyes and fluttered her long eyelashes. Her round face was rosy and cute.
She reached out her small hands and took the flowers that were wrapped in wax paper. She let out a careful “Wow.”
“Teacher, it’s so petite and looks a little listless.”
The teacher smiled gently. “This is a Listening Flower. They are a little more delicate than other flowers, but when they fully bloom…
“Even a small flower can spread its scent for five kilometers, attracting the surrounding butterflies. I’ll hand this over to the princess. Princess, take good care of it, okay?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded seriously and looked at the pink flowers in her hand with sparkling eyes.
“Teacher, don’t worry! I promise to raise it to be as round and smooth as me!”
The female teacher covered her mouth and chuckled. She stroked Gu Nuo’er’s small hair bun. “The princess is so cute.”
After saying that, she turned around and instructed the other students on how to plant the flowers.
All the girls in the class were participating in this small activity, while the young masters were to go with another teacher to play cuju1.
Ye Siming and Jiang Xiaoran had changed into fitting clothes and had red ribbons tied on their foreheads.
Ye Siming’s face was already cold, and now he looked even more like a jade youth.
Jiang Xiaoran, who was following beside him, still had a carefree expression on his face. When he saw a girl sizing him up, he even raised his eyebrows at her without hiding anything.
The girl was so embarrassed that she covered her face and ran off.
Gu Nuo’er held her pink flower and ran over.
“Elder Brother Siming, look at my flower!”
Ye Siming lowered his eyes and frowned. “What’s the point of planting such a weak thing that will die tomorrow?”
Gu Nuo’er puffed up her cheeks and said indignantly, “Who said that? I’ll definitely take good care of Little Pink!”
When Jiang Xiaoran heard this, he laughed loudly. “Little Pink? Princess, you’re really interesting. You even gave the flower a name!”
Ye Siming glanced at him coldly and Jiang Xiaoran stopped laughing.
“Princess, this name is really meaningful. It sounds nice and special.”
The female teacher called Gu Nuo’er’s name to get the flower planted.
Ye Siming looked at Gu Nuo’er’s small face and said, “If you’re tired, go over there and call me. I’ll plant it for you.”
Gu Nuo’er snorted. “I can do it myself. Elder Brother Siming, good luck!”
After saying that, she turned around and ran toward the female teacher.
Jiang Xiaoran approached Ye Siming and reminded him kindly, “Young Master Ye, look over there. There is a girl in orange clothes who is surrounded by everyone…
“She’s the daughter who was born to the first wife of the Grand Secretariat’s Reader-in-Waiting. Her name is Xue Yumeng. I heard that a while ago, the little princess had joined forces with the second and third princes to deal with the East Defender General.
“She’ll definitely cause trouble for the princess because the East Defender General is her uncle.”
Ye Siming turned his head and glanced coldly at Xue Yumeng.
The latter was talking to the person beside her when she suddenly felt a cold gaze on her.
She turned around but didn’t see anyone.
However, from the corner of her eye, she saw Gu Nuo’er squatting alone in the flower bed with her small butt sticking out and her two fair and tender hands holding onto some soil in her hands.
Next to her was the pink flower that the female teacher had just given her.
Xue Yumeng sneered and said to her good friends, “I heard that the princess is young but has a spoiled personality. Let’s not get close to her later. If we anger her, we will all be in trouble.”
