Chapter 200 - Don't Drop Your Official Hat Along With Your Head
Gu Nuo’er put her hands behind her back like a little adult and said softly, “Yes, Baby Nuo has already dealt with her. If Father were to do anything more,
“Everyone will think that Baby Nuo is petty. At that time, how will I be able to face others?!”
When everyone present heard this, they couldn’t help but laugh.
Gu Yihan even carried Gu Nuo’er in his arms and kissed her pink and smooth cheeks.
“My good daughter, how can Father have such a cute child like you?”
Gu Nuo’er hugged her father’s head with her small hands. “Because I’m the lucky mascot that Heaven gave Father!”
Noble Consort Qiao smiled. “Alright, Baby Nuo, it’s time for Mother to coax you to sleep.”
She reached out her hand, wanting to take Gu Nuo’er from the emperor.
Gu Yihan waved his hand to stop her. “I’m here today. Let me do it. You can rest by the side.”
Noble Consort Qiao was speechless.
She had not held her daughter for almost two hours. Wasn’t His Majesty tired?!
Early the next morning, Gu Yihan went to court and Gu Nuo’er had to go to school.
The father and daughter put on their clothes respectively.
Even their yawns were very synchronized.
Today, Gu Nuo’er was wearing a light yellow spring dress. Her black hair was braided by Wanyin and Wanxuan.
From afar, she looked like a yellow flower, jumping around and looking very cute.
Gu Yihan was dressed neatly and he bent over to pat his daughter’s head.
“Baby Nuo, if you’re tired today, you can come back from school anytime.”
Gu Nuo’er shook her head. “I won’t do that. I’m going to persevere until the end with my classmates. It’s very fun at school. There’s even a 12-year-old older brother in our class for young children!”
Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows. “There’s such a fool?”
He had never seen anyone more talented than his daughter.
It was getting late. The father and daughter went out together and separated at the palace path.
Gu Nuo’er went to school happily, but the atmosphere in the morning court assembly today really made the civil and military officials feel very suppressed.
It was for no other reason other than the emperor’s attitude this morning seemed very strange.
There was a shadow of a smile on his handsome face.
His gaze kept looking at Lord Zhao and then at Lord Xue, as if unconsciously.
Everyone felt the pressure from the emperor’s gaze. Lord Zhao and Lord Xue broke out in cold sweat.
Those who had children studying at the state school knew what had happened yesterday and understood why the emperor had this expression.
However, to their surprise, the emperor was hollering to beat or kill people.
Instead, he adopted a gentle policy and looked at them. It made them feel as if they were being stared at by an abyss. Who could stand this?!
The officials finished reporting their duties and the respective matters.
The emperor then finally said slowly, “Lord Zhao, you’re very silent today. Why? Do you have nothing to report to me? Have you neglected your duty, hmm?”
Lord Zhao’s entire body trembled and he hurriedly stepped out of the line and cupped his hands. “Your Majesty, this subject has never dared to let my guard down. I have always been loyal and dutiful in the matters of the city’s defenses. Your Majesty, please judge wisely!”
Gu Yihan smiled and didn’t say a word.
He then looked at Lord Xue. This time, his gaze became much sharper.
“Lord Xue, why is your official hat crooked?”
Lord Xue’s entire body trembled. He quickly held onto his hat with both hands and kowtowed to apologize.
“Your Majesty, please punish this subject for my negligence!”
Gu Yihan chuckled and when he lowered his eyes, a cold light entered his eyes.
If it wasn’t because his daughter did not let him interfere, these two people would have long been dragged out and chopped up into pieces.
When Gu Yihan raised his head again, he had a faint smile and a disdainful expression on his face. “You have to wear the official hat properly, lest it drops off one day together with your head. That won’t be good.”
