Chapter 266: Father, Mother, There’s Going to Be A Massive Flood

Ye Siming had wanted to go confirm the safety of Bai Yi and his wife.

When he passed by, he heard this conversation and glanced coldly at the two officials who were talking.

One of them patted the complaining official quietly.

He said in a low voice, “Young Master Ye is coming over. Stop talking.”

The two of them fell silent and looked straight at the distant scenery.

However, Ye Siming remembered their facial features clearly.

Due to the emperor’s order, the people accompanying him reduced the 100-odd carriages to over 50.

Several people were squeezed into the same carriage. It was the same for the consorts.

Gu Zitang and Gu Ziyao returned to be with their respective mothers.

Noble Consort Qiao went to Gu Yihan’s carriage because of Gu Nuo’er.

The child snuggled into her arms, her big eyes shining.

Noble Consort Qiao consoled her softly, “How is our Baby Nuo tired? Are you hungry? Or are you not feeling well? Tell Mother.”

When Gu Yihan saw this, he didn’t want to be outdone and went forward. “Tell Father too.”

Gu Nuo’er raised her fair face and blinked her black eyes. “Father, Mother, there’s going to be a massive flood. That’s why we can’t continue on the journey.

Gu Yihan and Noble Consort Qiao exchanged a glance.

Ever since Little Nuo’er was born, she seemed to have an inexplicable ability to turn misfortune into good fortune.

It was said that children could feel things that ordinary people couldn’t.

Could it be that the child had sensed that something was wrong again?

Noble Consort Qiao lowered her head and asked gently, “What does Baby Nuo know?”

The child’s voice was soft and she looked obedient. “It will rain heavily in another hour. At that time, the bridge in front will break and the mountain path behind will be blocked by the mud. This is the safest place.”

After saying that, she nudged her mother with her small head.

“Father and Mother can accompany Nuo’er here. With me to protect you guys, everything will be safe~”

Gu Yihan frowned.

While Noble Consort Qiao was coaxing their daughter, he got off the carriage and looked up to observe the weather.

The sky that was still clear and bright just now was not covered in dark clouds, but the sunlight had clearly decreased a lot. The rain clouds that were as thin as smoke were quietly coming from the east.

The wind in the mountains also became louder.

The child might not be talking nonsense. There might be heavy rain later.

Gu Yihan summoned the Eunuch Chunshou and the commander of the imperial guards, Huo Guang, and instructed solemnly, “Chunshou, bring a few eunuchs with you to verify the number and health of the people who came with the officials and consorts. If anyone leaves this area privately, find them immediately.

“Huo Guang, lead a portion of the imperial guards to pick up some dry firewood from the surroundings. I want the kind that can be used to start a fire. Remember to hurry up. You must return within the time it takes for an incense to burn!”

With the emperor on high alert, Chunshou and Huo Guang did not dare to hesitate and hurriedly turned around to make arrangements.

As for Ye Siming, he had confirmed that the terrain they were in was good.

It would not be washed away by the flash floods, but it was also in a relatively safe position.

He returned to Bai Yi’s carriage and counted the number of bows and arrows they had brought out this time. He then wiped the sharp arrowheads clean one by one.

At this moment, the two officials beside Bai Yi were still arguing non-stop. Madam Bai was even pushed in the process.

Ye Siming sat opposite them. He lowered his head and listened for a while. However, in the end, he couldn’t take it anymore.

He punched the wall of the carriage and scolded angrily, “You’re so noisy.”

The two officials turned around and looked at the youth’s angry and dissatisfied expression.

Only then did they silently shut up and sit up straight.

After all, General Bai Yi was an upright person and would not beat or scold them.

However, it was said that this Young Master Ye was very barbaric and unreasonable. What if he beat them up just because of a disagreement?
