Chapter 243 - Can You Invite Us to the Palace?
The weather was warm. In the study in the Censor Zhang’s residence.
The two attendants at the door looked up at the clear weather and heard Lord Zhang crying tears of joy from time to time. They couldn’t help but look at each other.
“Our master has been like this for about four hours, right? He locked himself up in the study without eating or drinking and would laugh and cry from time to time. Could it be that he’s feeling unwell?”
“Damn, you still don’t know, right? Master is just happy. A while ago, the emperor ordered the construction of a waterway, which made Master anxious. He was afraid that it would anger the people and thus made up his mind to submit a memorial to the emperor. A few days ago, he even told his wife his last words.
“In the end, the emperor’s memorial came back today. Not only was the emperor not angry, but he was also concerned about whether our master was eating well. Isn’t this a joyous thing? Of course our master would be happy!”
“Ever since His Majesty had a little princess, his temper has been getting better and better.”
The weather in spring had always been clear. The sky was blue and clear, with a few white clouds drifting.
Gu Nuo’er obediently attended class. In front, the teacher’s saliva splattered away while he continued teaching. On the other hand, Gu Nuo’er wrote in her book that she wanted to eat candies.
Ye Siming, who was behind her, stared at the back of the child’s head with a cold face.
The teacher secretly glanced at him.
Although this Young Master Ye had a cold personality, he paid attention in class and was a promising talent.
However, what Ye Siming was thinking was that Gu Nuo’er didn’t say that the sweet pancake she ate this morning was delicious.
What was wrong with it? Was there something wrong with the fire?
At this moment, the teacher mentioned a poem in the book.
“The trees in the south and north mountains are dark, ferocious tigers walk around the forest in the day. Do you know what tigers are the most ferocious and rarest? It’s the white tiger. Unfortunately, I’ve only been lucky enough to see it once.”
The students below echoedâ€”
“That’s right. White tigers are the rarest. There aren’t any in our country at all.”
“Moreover, they are priceless. It’s already very impressive to be able to take a look at them.”
At this moment, a voice suddenly said softly, “I heard that white tigers are only found in Northern Liang. When they came to pay their respects to the emperor this year, they even gave a pair of mother and a son white tigers to amuse the emperor. Your Highness must have seen them before, right?”
Her tone was faintly provocative.
She wanted to push Gu Nuo’er to the center of the storm.
She was waiting for the child to respond to her. However, after a moment of silence, Gu Nuo’er didn’t say anything.
Everyone looked over and saw that the princess was seriously scribbling away in her book.
The little princess was so obedient. She must be taking notes!
The teacher was very gratified. It was rare for the princess to come from a noble family yet be so studious.
He reminded Gu Nuo’er in a gentle tone, “Your Highness, don’t tire yourself too much.”
Only then did Gu Nuo’er hear someone calling her. She raised her head, her fair face filled with confusion.
The girl who had spoken just now was still unconvinced. Why did this Princess Yaoguang treat her like air?!
She said slowly, “Your Highness, everyone is curious about what white tigers look like. Can you invite us into the palace to take a look?”
Gu Nuo’er tilted her head and looked at the person who had spoken. It turned out to be the young miss of the Xie Family, Xie Yinxiang’s sister, Xie Liuhua.
Gu Nuo’er had never noticed Xie Liuhua before. It turned out that they were in the same class?
When everyone heard the mention of entering the palace, they couldn’t help but get excited.
Usually, only during festivities and when the palace held a banquet could they accompany their parents to the palace and experience the emperor’s grace.
Even so, many of them had never been to the palace.
Gu Nuo’er looked at Xie Liuhua, her watery eyes glistening.
Gu Nuo’er exposed Xie Liuhua mercilessly, “Elder Sister Xie Liuhua, are you the one who wants to go, or is it that everyone wants to go?”
