Chapter 199 - This Is a Matter Between Us Children!
Lord Xue was also very troubled.
Logically speaking, when faced with such a situation, they should just shut their mouths and suffer in silence.
Moreover, it wasn’t as if they were entirely free from blame. The matter of East Defender General sending military funds to their family would be exposed sooner or later!
At this moment, it was best to settle the matter peacefully and behave!
However, Xue Yumeng had been beaten up so badly by the little princess that Lord Xue’s heart ached!
The emperor’s daughter was a precious existence, but wasn’t his daughter the same?
Lord Xue pondered for a moment, his expression gradually turning sinister. “I’ve thought of something. Although the princess is very important to His Majesty, what if she died by accident?”
Madam Xue was shocked. “Husband, you mean…”
Lord Xue nodded slowly. “Next month, His Majesty will bring the civil and military officials and as well as the ladies in the harem to go hunting in Mt. Li. I think that will be our chance!”
The couple looked at each other and saw the determined glint to get revenge in each other’s eyes.
At night, the stars were beginning to appear.
In the Qiushui Palace, the candlelight was warm and yellow, exuding a sense of peace.
Gu Nuo’er had just taken a bath and looked like a white ball that had been washed clean.
With her soft black hair draped over her shoulders, she sat obediently on the bed and played with the fabric tiger.
Gu Yihan was behind her, gently wiping his daughter’s hair.
Noble Consort Qiao, on the other hand, was pushed to the side and could only watch as the father and daughter got along happily.
“Baby Nuo, tell Father, was school fun today?” Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows, looking handsome.
Gu Nuo’er’s pink face seemed to be dyed red. She fluttered her long eyelashes and smiled, revealing her white teeth.
“It was very fun. Baby Nuo got to know many older sisters who were very good to me! They gave me food and even coaxed me to take a nap!”
Noble Consort Qiao covered her mouth and smiled. “As expected of my daughter. She’s so likable.”
Gu Yihan looked up at her.
Noble Consort Qiao changed her words. “This consort and His Majesty’s daughter…”
Gu Yihan retracted his gaze in satisfaction and said with a bright smile, “Father’s Baby Nuo is so cute that anyone would like her. However, Father has heard that someone made things difficult for you. Is that true?”
Gu Nuo’er was very smart. She blinked twice and guessed that the hidden guards must have explained everything that had happened today to her father.
And now, her father was asking her because he wanted to know her thoughts and attitude on the matter.
If she didn’t have any thoughts, her father would definitely kill the person involved in the next step.
Therefore, Gu Nuo’er chose to be honest.
“There were people who made things difficult for them, and it wasn’t just one. However, Elder Brother Siming has already dealt with one of them. As for the other one, Baby Nuo has also taught her a lesson. I believe they won’t dare to be so arrogant anymore.”
As expected, Gu Yihan was not satisfied. He waved his hand and said, “Ye Siming only left a cut on the neck of that person with the surname Zhao. I wonder if the sword wasn’t sharp enough. Why didn’t he cut off the person’s head completely? How is the matter considered to be resolved with this? Moreover, you only hit that girl from the Xue Family a few times. It’s not enough to vent your anger.”
When Gu Nuo’er heard this, she suddenly turned her small body.
She wanted to turn around angrily, but she didn’t control her strength well and fell to the side like a meatball.
Noble Consort Qiao chuckled and helped her up. “Baby Nuo, don’t be agitated. If you have anything to say to your father, take your time.”
Gu Nuo’er snorted and placed her small hands on her waist, trying her best to ignore the awkwardness just now.
“Father! This is a matter between us children! Don’t interfere! Only a two-year-old child will look for their father to help them vent their anger. Baby Nuo is already three years old!”
Gu Yihan laughed loudly at her delicate and angry appearance.
“Alright, alright, alright. Father won’t interfere. Father will let Baby Nuo make the decision, alright?”
