Chapter 254 - Are You Jealous That the Princess Has A White Tiger?
However, he was clumsy, to begin with. By the time he counted to ten, his words became chaotic.
By the time he felt that he had finished counting, Xie Liuhua had already disappeared!
In the afternoon, all classes at the state school were suspended.
This was because something big had happened.
The little white tiger that the princess had brought with her had actually gone missing!
The imperial guards said that Prince Xuan’s heir, Yun Linzhou, had taken it away to play.
They also said, “The prince also said that this is the princess’s instruction.”
Gu Nuo’er’s round face was filled with confusion.
Her big sparkling eyes fluttered and she looked at the boy who had been captured by Ye Siming. He was wearing silk but looked a little dirty.
“I didn’t say that I wanted to lend you the little white tiger to play with. Why did you lie?”
Yun Linzhou looked at her and felt that the gazes of the surrounding students were all on him.
Everyone’s whispers entered Yun Linzhou’s ears…
“He’s just a fool, but he actually learned to lie.”
“That’s right. A fool actually knows how to steal things. How embarrassing!”
“To think that he’s a prince. He’s really bad.”
Yun Linzhou didn’t get to play with the little white tiger, to begin with, so he felt even more aggrieved now.
Although he was stupid, he had always been very sensitive to everyone’s malice.
He immediately started wailing.
“I didn’t lie. Someone taught me to say this and even said that I would be able to carry the baby tiger this way.”
Gu Nuo’er blinked. “Who was it?”
Yun Linzhou looked around with his tear-filled eyes.
In the crowd, Xie Liuhua shrank her neck and tried to hide behind everyone.
However, Yun Linzhou still saw her at a glance.
He pointed at Xie Liuhua. “Her!”
Gu Nuo’er and everyone’s gazes followed the direction and looked at Xie Liuhua.
Xie Liuhua seemed to have realized something and looked up with an innocent expression. “What? Me? Prince Yun, you can’t slander me. I’ve never seen you before. You can’t just find a random person to accuse after you’ve stolen the white tiger.”
Yun Linzhou felt aggrieved. He pounced over and grabbed Xie Liuhua’s sleeve. With great strength, he dragged her in front of Gu Nuo’er.
He cried and shouted, “You taught me to do that! You stole it! You took the white tiger away and even lied to me!”
Then, Yun Linzhou continued to chatter non-stop, but his words were incoherent. Everyone was confused from listening.
Xie Liuhua looked like she had been wronged and was on the verge of crying.
“After lunch, I’ve been resting in class and hadn’t come out, let alone seen Prince Yun. He’s usually not close to me, so how could he possibly listen to me and lie to the imperial guards?”
However, the moment Xie Liuhua appeared, Ye Siming frowned.
He had a sharp sense of smell and could quickly tell if she was speaking the truth from smelling.
He looked sideways at the child beside him.
Gu Nuo’er tilted her head, her watery eyes blinking with curiosity.
She was staring at Xie Liuhua, thinking about something.
Jiang Xiaoran stood beside Ye Siming, crossed his arms, and raised his eyebrows. He said in a sloppy tone, “Xie Liuhua, could it be that you’re jealous that the princess has a little white tiger and deliberately caused trouble?
“Everyone knows that the prince is naive. What if you made use of him? Who can guarantee that this won’t happen?”
Xie Liuhua’s heart tightened, and even her tone was a little radical and angry. “Young Master Jiang, I have no enmity with you. Why do you have to slander me repeatedly? Do you get any benefit from doing that?
“This is utter slander! If the princess wants to punish me, why did she let you be the mediator and cause the incident of having lost the white tiger?
“In any case, she’s the princess. If she wants to punish me, I’ll just accept it! Do you think I’d dare to argue with her?”
