Chapter 195 - I'm Willing to Make Pastries for the Princess!
Jiang Xiaoran raised his handsome eyebrows. “I heard you say that you gave them to the princess just now. Would the little princess mind it if I were to take two pieces of her snacks?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded quickly. “Yes! There’s not even enough for me to eat!”
Zhang Jinyu chuckled when she heard this and glanced at Jiang Xiaoran. “Did you hear that? You still don’t know your place. Go away.”
Jiang Xiaoran looked at Gu Nuo’er and pretended to be heartbroken.
He pounded his chest and stomped his feet. “Princess, how can you be so heartless? When Xue Yumeng slandered you just now, I even spoke up for you! Can you share a piece of the pastries with me?”
After saying that, he put on a pleading expression, his slightly raised eyes also looking pitiful.
Gu Nuo’er held the pastry in her small hand and forgot to chew it for a moment, falling into a dilemma.
Zhang Jinyu shouted, “Princess, ignore him. He has always been good at pretending. It’s not like he’ll lose anything if he doesn’t get to eat a piece of pastry! Don’t be fooled by him.”
Gu Nuo’er blinked her big eyes and looked at Zhang Jinyu before looking at Jiang Xiaoran.
A moment later, she stuck some crumbs with the tip of her fair and round pinky from the box,
She then carefully flicked them onto Jiang Xiaoran’s palm.
Jiang Xiaoran widened his eyes. “Princess, this can’t be your reward for me, is it? I asked for a piece of pastry and you’re giving me two bits of crumbs?!”
Gu Nuo’er protected the food box with her small hands uneasily. Her pink face pouted cutely.
“Playboy older brother, there’s no helping it. It’s all because you still owe Elder Sister Jinyu an apology.
“Although she had given the pastries to me to eat, I can’t do something that would make her sad!
“But I should indeed share some with you, so, it’ll just be this little bit. Don’t say that it’s not enough. There’s no more.”
Zhang Jinyu was immediately amused by Gu Nuo’er and chuckled. “Jiang Xiaoran, to think that you would have such a day. The princess is young, but she knows more about reason than you!”
Jiang Xiaoran was rendered speechless by the lecture and shook his head with a sigh.
In the end, he poured the crumbs into his mouth and almost said with tears in his eyes, “It’s delicious. Thank you for your grace, Princess. Hmph!”
After saying that, Jiang Xiaoran silently turned around and walked to his seat.
When he passed by Ye Siming, he realized that he had his arms crossed and his gaze was cold, as if watching Gu Nuo’er was the only thing he had to do.
Jiang Xiaoran couldn’t help but want to seek Ye Siming’s consolation. “Siming, the princess and Zhang Jinyu joined forces to bully me!”
Ye Siming glanced at him and said, “Bear with it.”
Jiang Xiaoran immediately stomped his feet like a young bullied wife and sat down.
After Jiang Xiaoran left, Gu Nuo’er ate even more heartily.
She held the pastry in her small hands and shook her head, exclaiming as she ate. “Elder Sister Jinyu, how can there be someone like you in this world? You’re so beautiful and the food you make is so delicious!”
Zhang Jinyu covered her mouth and smiled. “Princess, you’re flattering me. If you like it, shall I make it for you every day?”
Gu Nuo’er licked her lips, her eyes sparkling. “Oh, don’t tire yourself out!”
“It’s not tiring to make pastries for the princess!”
After saying that, Zhang Jinyu turned to the door and beckoned.
Her group of good friends and the young ladies from other noble families had been waiting there for a long time.
Everyone had escaped death because of the little princess just now.
They couldn’t help but want to find an opportunity to get close to her.
However, they did not understand the princess’s character and were afraid that Gu Nuo’er would be disgusted if they were to rashly approach her.
Therefore, Zhang Jinyu took the lead.
