Chapter 221 - Princess, Aren't You Bringing An Attendant?
Gu Nuo’er waved her small hand. “Uncle Xie, you don’t have to be so polite. However, I can’t say for sure what’s going on.”
Xie Xingli nodded repeatedly. “Princess, don’t worry. You’re only going to my humble abode to play and be a guest. Even if you think there’s no problem, this subject can accept it!”
Only then did Gu Nuo’er smile sweetly and wave goodbye.
Xie Xingli also slowly took his leave.
The child looked at his back view and tilted her head in confusion.
If a person was pestered by something bad, their luck would go down and their glabella would turn black.
However, Uncle Xie looked very normal.
It was just that he had the appearance of someone with a bit of heartlessness.
The child thought for a long time and decided to go take a look tomorrow before considering if she should help him out.
After all, she liked good people and not bad people.
Gu Nuo’er hummed along the way and picked many beautiful flowers by the roadside to give to her mother.
Early the next morning, it was raining heavily.
It was as if a hole had appeared in the sky, and bean-sized raindrops covered the mortal world.
In such weather, Gu Nuo’er didn’t have to go to the state school to attend classes.
Therefore, when Ye Siming came to the imperial city to pick her up in a carriage today, he was also informed by the guard, “The roads are slippery on a rainy day and His Majesty is worried. The princess doesn’t have to go to school today. If Young Master Ye doesn’t want to go, you can go home and rest for a day as well.”
Ye Siming frowned and looked sideways at the sweet pastries in the carriage which he had prepared for the child.
He lifted the curtain with his slender fingers and pondered for a moment before saying, “Got it.”
Just as he was about to instruct the coachman to turn around and return to the residence…
A carriage drove over from the palace’s entrance. Not long after it stopped, a small sedan chair was carried over by four eunuchs.
On the other side, the guard suddenly held up an umbrella and a small figure jumped out of the sedan chair happily.
Ye Siming frowned.
As the carriage was blocking the way, Ye Siming couldn’t see who had gotten out of the carriage.
He could only hear with his excellent hearing that the person who spoke was a man.
Ye Siming’s ears twitched slightly and he heard some words—
“…Princess… Come to my humble abode… I’ve already prepared delicious food and drinks… Thank you for going to the trouble…”
Ye Siming’s dark eyes looked directly at the carriage.
Gu Nuo’er was wearing an orange dress and her two pigtails were black and shiny. They stuck obediently to her temples and she hopped onto the carriage.
She went out to play since she didn’t have to go to school?
Ye Siming frowned.
This little thing…
Gu Nuo’er, who was in the carriage, was tasting sweet pastries and drinking flower tea with honey.
Her small body sat upright, but she couldn’t hide the joy on her face.
Xie Xingli half-knelt at the side and served her respectfully.
He looked out of the carriage and asked, “Princess, aren’t you bringing an attendant?”
Gu Nuo’er ate the pastries and said vaguely, “I won’t bring one. If something really happens, it’s useless even if I had brought one!”
Xie Xingli’s heart was pounding.
What should he do? The malicious ghost at their residence could hurt people!
If the ghost were to suddenly possess someone and injure the little princess, how would he answer to His Majesty?
No, how many heads did he have to give up?!
It seemed like he had to protect the princess well later!
The carriage drove through the puddles and finally stopped in front of the Xie Family’s residence.
Perhaps it was because Xie Xingli had informed the servants in the manor.
The moment Gu Nuo’er got out of the carriage, four umbrellas appeared above her head.
There were maidservants standing on both sides. They took care of the child respectfully, not daring to let a drop of rain fall on her.
Gu Nuo’er rubbed her chubby face and smiled. “Thank you, beautiful older sisters!”
