Chapter 269 - Gu Nuo'er... What Exactly Was Her Identity?
The child rested her chin on her hand and sighed quietly.
She happened to help Uncle Chunshou, but what should the others do when the rain gets heavier later?”
Fortunately, the rain came and went quickly.
However, when it was time for them to move on, the bridge in front would be broken and there would be no way out from the mountain path behind.
They’d be stuck in the middle for one whole day.
Gu Nuo’er thought about it.
It didn’t matter. Elder Brother Siming still had the pastries made by Auntie Bai. It was enough for her to eat her fill!
She lay under the blanket in peace and listened to the rain. Gradually, she felt sleepy.
The others were all terrified and uneasy, afraid that the surging torrent would rush over at any moment.
However, the position that the emperor had ordered them to stop at was chosen very subtly.
A natural tall mountain at the side actually became an excellent barrier.
Moreover, the space here was also flat enough, so there was no need to worry that the carriages would slide down.
The coachmen comforted the horses, afraid that the horses would be frightened by the thunder and charge forward.
Gu Yihan sat in the carriage. Not long later, Chunshou limped over with the help of two imperial guards.
The emperor frowned. “I asked you to go and see what was going on, but you injured yourself?”
When Eunuch Chunshou saw Gu Yihan, he immediately cried. “Your Majesty! This servant almost died!”
The imperial guards at the side told Gu Yihan about the dangerous experience Chunshou had just experienced.
Gu Yihan frowned. “You’re quite lucky. Since you’ve fallen so badly, don’t serve me anymore. I’ll allow you to go to the carriage in front to rest.”
Chunshou quickly thanked him and said with tears in his eyes, “Your Majesty, this servant wants to kowtow to the little princess.”
Gu Yihan looked sideways and saw that the child was already lying under the small blanket, sleeping obediently.
He said in a soft voice, “Baby Nuo is asleep. You’re not feeling well, so you can go back first.”
However, Eunuch Chunshou insisted on his opinion. He still bent down shakily, knelt in the mud, and kowtowed three times solemnly to the carriage.
Although it might be his imagination, Eunuch Chunshou had a feeling in his heart.
It must be the little princess’s obedience and good fortune that saved his life.
Gu Nuo’er was sleeping soundly, but she didn’t know that a loud bang suddenly sounded from outside.
Even Noble Consort Qiao was shocked. She quickly patted Gu Nuo’er’s small body comfortingly.
Many horses were neighing in shock.
After a while, the imperial guards came to report to Gu Yihan, “Your Majesty, the bridge for passing through the mountain path ahead was broken by the water. However, our carriage is far away, so no one was injured.”
Gu Yihan nodded and instructed, “Go to the back and keep an eye on the mountain path. Stay further away and see if there’s a flash flood later. If the mountain path will be blocked, think of a solution to clear the way as soon as possible.”
In Bai Yi’s carriage, the two officials were still arguing a moment ago.
However, after the baptism of the thunderstorm and various screams, they were already trembling in fear and hugging each other.
When they heard the sound of an explosion, they quickly called their attendant] to check on the situation.
]Not long later, the attendant returned and realized that the bridge in front had broken.
The two of them hugged each other even tighter. “It’s raining so heavily. Will we just be waiting for death if we stop here?”
Bai Yi’s voice was calm. Compared to the two of them, he didn’t seem flustered at all.
“The terrain here is flat and stable. The water will only flow down from the low-lying areas in front and behind us. It won’t pass by here. It’ll be dangerous if we move.”
When Ye Siming heard this, he looked outside coldly.
Gu Nuo’er had said that the bridge would break and the mountain path behind would be blocked.
Half of her words had already come true.
Even if she was a princess blessed and doted on by the heavens…
However, something must be wrong for her to be able to guess everything so accurately.
Gu Nuo’er… What exactly was her identity?
