Chapter 235 - How Dare They Bully Gu Nuo'er's Mother?
Gu Nuo’er was sent back to the palace by Ye Siming.
When Wanyin heard that the princess had returned to the palace, she waited at the palace gate with a few palace maids holding umbrellas.
When the child was brought back to the Qiushui Palace by Wanyin, Noble Consort Qiao was leaning against the beauty’s couch, her beautiful face filled with displeasure.
Wanxuan massaged the noble consort’s legs and said, “Your Highness, it’s better if you don’t interfere in Beauty Su’s matters. This person is evil and used to stay in Consort Yi’s side hall.
Consort Yi was straightforward and generous, giving her many rewards. However, she took advantage of the fact that Consort Yi was not feeling well to run to Consort Yi’s hall to invite the emperor to move to her room to rest.
“Later on, Consort Yi found out about this and lost her temper, chasing her out of the side hall. Now, she lives in the Xiechun Pavilion which few people mention. No one gets close to her.”
Noble Consort Qiao pushed her hair up a little and said in an indifferent tone.
“I can’t be bothered to care about this trivial matter of hers. However, since she has asked for my help and I’m temporarily taking charge of the issues concerning six palaces, how can I not care about it?
“However, she said that her father is seriously ill and wants to go home to visit him. This matter is of great importance and it’s not up to me to decide whether consorts can return to visit their family. I naturally have to ask His Majesty before I can give an answer. It’s not like I don’t want to help.
“However, she didn’t know what was good for her and kowtowed and cried in this palace. Fortunately, Baby Nuo wasn’t around. Otherwise, if Baby Nuo was given a fright, I’ll skin Beauty Su alive!”
Wanxuan quickly said, “That’s right! How unlucky!”
When Gu Nuo’er walked in, she heard these words clearly.
She blinked her watery eyes and called out softly, “Mother~ Baby Nuo is home~”
Noble Consort Qiao’s displeased expression changed, revealing a hint of the gentleness of a mother.
She quickly got up and went up to the child. “Good Nuo’er, why are you only back now? Did you run off somewhere to play again?”
Gu Nuo’er thought for a moment but didn’t say anything about Xie Xingli inviting her to “repel evil spirits”.
“I went out to watch the rain with Elder Brother Siming!”
The child pounced into her mother’s arms and rubbed her head against her mother. “Mother, Baby Nuo misses you so much~”
Noble Consort Qiao was amused by her daughter. She picked Gu Nuo’er up and patted her back gently.
“You little fellow, your mouth seems to have been smeared with honey all day long. It’s raining outside. You didn’t get drenched, did you? How about Mother steam some milk cake for you to eat?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded and didn’t say anything.
This was because she was focused on sensing the aura on her mother’s body.
When she entered the hall just now, she only felt a black fog blowing over.
The child was very intelligent and naturally guessed that something had happened.
The black fog on Noble Consort Qiao’s body was faintly discernible.
It didn’t look too serious, but Gu Nuo’er frowned.
Who had the guts to bully Gu Nuo’er’s mother?!
The child clenched her small fists.
At this moment, Noble Consort Qiao was about to carry Gu Nuo’er to the inner room when she suddenly felt dizzy.
Her legs went limp and she suddenly fell to the side.
Even so, Noble Consort Qiao still protected her daughter tightly with both hands!
The sudden change happened so suddenly that Wanyin and Wanxuan rushed over in a hurry but were unable to support Noble Consort Qiao before she fell.
Gu Nuo’er hurriedly waved her small hand. Noble Consort Qiao felt that something seemed to have grabbed her waist when she fell.
She only fell slowly to the ground, but it didn’t hurt at all.
Noble Consort Qiao and Gu Nuo’er asked anxiously almost in unison.
“Mother, are you alright?”
“Baby Nuo, did you get hurt from the fall?”
Gu Nuo’er pursed her pink lips and tears immediately welled up in her eyes.
She wrapped her small hands tightly around her mother’s neck. “Mother, Baby Nuo doesn’t feel any pain. Mother is hurt. Baby Nuo will blow on it for you.”
