Chapter 287: Who Would Still Dare to Go Against the Little Princess?
However, Gu Yihan said to Gu Nuo’er in the carriage, “Baby Nuo, Father didn’t let you have a good time this time. Next time, Father will bring you out again, alright?”
At that moment, Gu Nuo’er was hugging the fabric tiger with both hands and rolling around to play.
Hearing this, she sat up straight, her watery and beautiful eyes flickering.
The mole at the corner of her eye made her look even more delicate and cute.
“Father, Baby Nuo is very happy! This time, I caught many baddies and even ate Elder Brother Siming’s roasted pheasants. I even had a good sleep.”
Children would be happy just from coming out, playing, and seeing the scenery.
Gu Nuo’er’s black pearl-like eyes flickered. Her pink cheeks and small face were chubby.
Gu Yihan felt that his daughter was considerate and felt even more guilty. He wished he could compensate her a hundred or a thousand times back.
After returning to the palace, Chunshou did as the emperor instructed and compared Vice Minister Xue’s handwriting in the imperial study.
As expected, the letter to the assassins was from Vice Minister Xue.
The ending was without a doubt, the entire Xue Family executed.
When Gu Yihan went to court, he reprimanded Vice Minister Xue’s actions in front of all the civil and military officials.
His handsome face looked cold from anger, and his tone was filled with killing intent.
“Baby Nuo has never caused trouble. Even though I dote on her to this extent, she rarely provokes others. If she were to quarrel and argue with your child, it must be your child’s fault.
Vice Minister Xue’s daughter, Xue Yumeng, had a conflict with Baby Nuo. I knew about this long ago and didn’t interfere because Baby Nuo likes to take care of matters between children herself.
“However, I didn’t expect Vice Minister Xue to still dare to kidnap and assassinate the princess under my watch at his age. In that case, I’ll kill his entire family and dig up his ancestral graves. There’s no room for discussion.”
Gu Yihan’s voice was cold and the officials below cowered, not daring to speak.
His gaze swept across the officials. “Vice Minister Xue is a precedent. I hope everyone understands that Baby Nuo is my reverse scale. Anyone who touches it will definitely die.”
“We will listen to Your Majesty’s orders!” The officials echoed.
Only then was Gu Yihan satisfied and sat back on the throne.
At this moment, Chunshou encountered a brocade box and walked straight to Lord Zhao.
Lord Zhao was already trembling in fear when Gu Yihan spoke ruthlessly just now.
It was because his good-for-nothing son had provoked the princess and Young Master Ye before!
Vice Minister Xue died a tragic death. It was said that the imperial guards rushed in and killed him as ordered.
More than a hundred lives in the Xue Manor were sentenced to death overnight.
Blood was flowing out from the cracks in the walls. The surroundings were sealed off by the imperial guards and no one was allowed to pass by.
Otherwise, if anyone saw this, they would definitely be so frightened that they wouldn’t be able to sleep well every night.
With such a tragedy in front of him, how could Lord Zhao not be afraid?!
When the emperor suddenly rewarded him with something, he quickly stepped out of the line and cupped his hands. “This subject has done nothing, so how can I be rewarded? Your Majesty, this subject doesn’t deserve this!”
Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows, his gaze disdainful and arrogant.
He smiled gently. “What’s there to be afraid of? This is what I’m rewarding you with. Take it well. I’ve heard that your bastard son did something wrong.
“However, Minister Zhao, you’re smarter than Vice Minister Xue. You managed your son very well and didn’t act audaciously. You’re very tactful. You should take my reward!”
When Lord Zhao heard this, he couldn’t refuse anymore and could only force himself to accept the brocade box calmly.
He cupped his hands and knelt. “Thank you, Your Majesty!”
Gu Yihan narrowed his eyes and smiled. “You’re welcome. This is a Pixiu made from gold that was found during the raid on the Xue Manor. It’s stained with some blood. You can just go back and wipe it. It’s a precious item. Keep it well.”
The officials present trembled.
From then on, who would still dare to go against the little princess?
