Chapter 25: Don’t Underestimate Children!

Noble Consort Qiao stood up to welcome the emperor. She was not anxious about Qinghe’s slander at all.

On the other hand, the empress supported her sick body up and tried her best to defend the noble consort.

“Your Majesty, this servant is making a slanderous charge! If the noble consort hadn’t discovered this, I’m afraid I would have died for no reason!”

Gu Yihan came in alone. With his hands behind his back, he looked at the empress and Noble Consort Qiao.

In the end, his gaze landed on Qinghe, who was hugging onto his boots and crying non-stop.

When Qinghe looked up and saw the emperor’s eyes, she was suddenly shocked.

Why was the emperor’s gaze so sinister?

It was terrifying.

Gu Yihan slowly said in a cold voice, “Is that so? You said that the noble consort instructed you to harm the empress?”

Qinghe braced herself and argued. She only wanted to stall for time first.

As long as she could get through today, the master behind her would be able to think of a way to save her!

Qinghe nodded repeatedly. “Noble Consort Qiao asked me to add slow-acting poison to the tea. She even said to add just a little each day until the empress’s body is worn out!

“Her goal is to become the empress. She usually pretends to have a good relationship with the Empress, but she actually harbors evil intentions!

“Now, after making use of this servant, she even wants to silence me. This servant really doesn’t dare to help her hide this anymore. Your Majesty, please make a wise decision!”

Gu Yihan suddenly smiled coldly.

This smile was filled with killing intent!

His gaze was cold. “Oh? Why did the noble consort get the princess to ask for my help after drugging the empress?

“Could it be that you want to say that the noble consort brought her biological child here to deliberately expose that you were drugging the empress?”

Qinghe was stunned.

The princess? Could it be that the princess had gone to look for the emperor?

At this moment, a small head popped out from behind the door frame.

Gu Nuo’er fluttered her long eyelashes and her bright eyes became even clearer, giving off a hint of docility.

She said softly, “Empress Mother, Mother, don’t be afraid. Nuonuo has asked Father to come and save us!”

Then, she pointed at Qinghe and said, “Father, this is the bad thing. She did something to the tea and was discovered by Nuonuo.

“She even threatened me! She said that she wouldn’t give me pastries to eat. That’s too much! Does she think that Nuonuo is a two-year-old child?!”

Qinghe had a strong urge to bite her lower lip until it bled!

She did not expect this princess to go and tell the emperor about this matter.

In that case, the emperor was already prejudiced.

No matter how much the Qinghe tried to argue, it was all in vain!

Looking at Qinghe’s resentful expression, the child made a face. “Bad guy, I’ll hit you!”

She raised her little fist but almost tripped over the threshold.

Thankfully, Gu Yihan was quick and scooped his precious daughter up, hugging her to console her.

At this moment, Noble Consort Consort Qiao said, “Your Majesty, please hand over the right to investigate to me. Qinghe alone won’t dare to be presumptuous.

“There must be someone instigating her behind this. Your consort must unearth this person who wants to harm Her Majesty.”

Gu Yihan stared at Qinghe and said in a cold tone, “I have a more straightforward method.”

He turned and instructed Chunshou, “Beat Qinghe up until a layer of her skin peels off. Then get everyone in the harem to go see.

“Let the imperial guards watch in the dark. Identify those who are the most afraid and interrogate them with torture. If no one confesses, this lowly servant’s death is not worth pitying.”

As he spoke, he waved his sleeve. “Take her away! Take Cailuan away as well.”

Cailuan received the order and immediately beckoned with his hand. The imperial guards behind him immediately gushed in and dragged away Cailuan and Qinghe.

Gu Nuo’er said to the two of them, “Bleh bleh bleh! Don’t underestimate children!”

If not for her preemptive strike, Noble Consort Qiao would not have been able to escape suspicion when the emperor came today.

They had to talk with evidence.
