Gu Yihan chuckled and tapped the tip of his daughter’s nose.
“You’re such a smart child. If you encounter such a thing next time, you have to tell Father too. Father will definitely protect Nuo’er.”
Gu Nuo’er happily rubbed her head against Gu Yihan’s neck.
“Father is the best. Baby Nuo likes Father the most.”
Recalling that Noble Consort Qiao was still at the side, the child quickly added, “I also like Mother and Empress Mother the most!”
The few of them looked at each other and smiled.
Noble Consort Qiao went forward and carried Gu Nuo’er away, leaving the emperor to talk to the empress alone.
Because of this incident, Gu Yihan definitely had a lot to ask the empress.
Before they left, Gu Nuo’er leaned on her mother’s shoulder.
She stretched out her little hand and waved at the empress who was on the sickbed.
“Empress Mother~ You’ll get better~ The next time Baby Nuo comes, I’ll bring you candies!”
The empress was extremely touched. She had been taking medicine all year round and had almost forgotten what sweetness tasted like.
She nodded with tears in her eyes. “Be good and go back with your mother.”
The child kept waving her hand.
No one saw blue spiritual energy slowly flowing out from the tips of her fair fingers.
Gradually, they all fused into the space between the empress’s eyebrows.
Empress Mother is a good person. You must recover quickly.
As Noble Consort QIao carried Gu Nuo’er to their palace, the child was very happy.
“Mother, we’ve done another good deed today!”
Noble Consort Qiao smiled dotingly. “Little Baby Nuo, you’re Mother’s lucky star, right?”
Wanyin continued, “That’s right! If it wasn’t for the princess’s decisiveness, pulling this servant to go look for His Majesty…
“Your Highness would have been framed by that Qinghe today. Although His Majesty won’t believe it, he’d still have to call for an investigation according to the procedures.
“When that happens, rumors will spread in the palace. It’d be too unfair to Your Highness!”
Noble Consort Qiao smiled and didn’t say anything.
Her arrogant eyes were filled with nonchalance.
She was scheming and cautious. There was no one who could hurt her.
When Noble Consort Qiao thought of this, her ears suddenly hurt!
The beautiful woman immediately cried out, “Baby Nuo, you’ve hooked onto Mother’s earring!”
The child didn’t expect this to happen either. She had been rubbing against her mother.
And the ribbon on her bun hairstyle got entangled with her mother’s earring!
Gu Nuo’er waved her small hands frantically. “Elder Sister Wanyin, Elder Sister Wanxuan, hurry up and come save Mother!”
The more she moved, the tighter the entanglement with the earring!
When they finally removed the tangle, Noble Consort Qiao’s fair earlobe had already turned red.
Gu Nuo’er’s heart ached a lot when she saw this. She pouted her small mouth and said, “Mother, I’m sorry. Baby Nuo will blow at it for you~”
Noble Consort Qiao carried Gu Nuo’er and thought of the arrogance in her heart a moment ago, which ended up in her becoming a spectacle.
She couldn’t help but chuckle.
“Seriously, you… Mother has been amazing my entire life, but ends up losing to the hands of a little fellow like you.”
Gu Nuo’er wrapped her chubby arms around her mother’s neck carefully.
“Mother, what do you mean by losing to the hand? Nuo’er’s hands are so small, can they defeat Mother too?”
She had just finished saying these when the few of them broke out laughing.
With the sunlight shining down, it was a very harmonious and beautiful scene.
The next day, Noble Consort Qiao wanted to go to see the scene of Qinghe being surrounded by the consorts and concubines in the harem.
She didn’t allow Gu Nuo’er to go for fear that she’d get a scare.
Therefore, Noble Consort Qiao had Wanxuan carry Gu Nuo’er to go take a walk in the lion and tiger garden in the palace.
This child had liked small animals since young.
When Wanxuan brought Gu Nuo’er to the lion and tiger garden, there was a black bear pacing around in the cage anxiously.
It had been hibernating in the mountains when it was caught by a general and gifted to the emperor as a plaything.
At this moment, in the cage, it was anxious and uneasy, looking very fierce.
It even knocked against the cage incessantly, giving Wanxuan a scare.
