Chapter 271 - My Beloved Daughter Is Indeed A Blessing From the Heavens
Gu Nuo’er was sleeping soundly. Two beautiful fairy older sisters in her dream were hugging her and feeding her ambrosia.
The child waved her hands happily, her pink lips wanting to spit bubbles.
At this moment, she heard someone whispering in her ear—
“Your Majesty, Commander Huo, General Bai, and Young Master Ye discovered a total of 36 assassins on a nearby hill.
“Eight of them were covered in mud and didn’t die. The others were unconscious. Some of them have just woken up and are currently being watched.”
Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows in surprise. “Assassins? You’re saying that so many assassins were hiding in the nearby mountains but were washed out by the heavy rain?”
The imperial guard who came to report also felt that it was ridiculous.
However, he still said respectfully, “Yes, Commander and General Bai discovered after searching that they have a total of more than 40 long sabers and poisons. They clearly came prepared.”
Gu Yihan was stunned for a moment before chuckling softly. Then, he clapped his hands and cheered.
“Even the heavens are helping me. Oh, no, Nuo’er and the heavens are helping me!”
He felt happy just thinking about it!
The assassins came prepared and made ample preparations for the assassination.
Unexpectedly, heavy rain fell from the sky and caused them to lose without a fight!
It was extremely laughable to be washed out by the flash flood and almost die on the mountain!
At this moment, Gu Nuo’er couldn’t fall asleep either. She rubbed her big eyes and sat up.
She had just woken up and her black eyes were misty. Her long eyelashes were like two small fans that blinked.
Gu Yihan quickly stopped laughing and wrapped Gu Nuo’er in a small blanket before hugging her. “Baby Nuo, did Father wake you up?”
The child shook her head. “Father, I’ve slept enough! I heard that there were assassins?”
As Gu Yihan spoke, he smiled. “They were here, but then they were swept away by the flash flood. Baby Nuo, you’re really Father’s lucky star.”
Gu Nuo’er blinked her big eyes in confusion, her expression lively and cute.
Koi fish were koi fish. No matter what, the heavens favored them.
If anyone wanted to assassinate them, the heavens would use the heavy rain to chase those assassins out.
Bai Yi felt a lingering fear.
There were more than 30 assassins. If they were to lay in ambush near the hunting ground, when the hunt started, with the nobles and officials spread out…
It would be easy to cause a commotion!
This heavy rain came at the right time!
After a while, the heavy rain gradually stopped.
It was as if the rain had cleared out these assassins and completed its mission, then left naturally.
The night sky that had been washed by the heavy rain looked even darker.
The moon was hidden behind the clouds, revealing only a corner that emitted jade-colored light.
Gu Yihan carried Gu Nuo’er and got off the carriage. The officials also got off one after another. Everyone had different expressions, but they all seemed as if they had realized that they had just survived a calamity.
Compared to the officials, Gu Yihan’s expression seemed a lot more relaxed.
He waved his hand and laughed loudly. “This timely rain from the heavens found more than 30 assassins for me. They were captured without any effort.
“However, in the end, my Baby Nuo is the luckiest. If not for her unwillingness to move forward, we would have encountered the double threat of heavy rain and assassins!
“Dear subjects, your lives have been saved by the princess again! My beloved daughter is indeed a blessing from the heavens.”
Only then did the officials know that assassins were lying in an ambush.
When they thought of this dangerous mountain rain incident, they all cheered that the princess was intelligent!
Gu Yihan was even happier. He raised Gu Nuo’er high and let her accept the bow of his subjects.
However, at this moment, the child’s stomach let out a soft growl.
Gu Nuo’er touched her deflated stomach and blinked aggrievedly. “Father, I’m hungry.”
