321 Making A Dragon Robe Privately Is A Death Penalty!
Wanxuan quickly opened the box.
When everyone saw what was inside, they all gasped.
The Grace Defender Duke looked shocked. Even though he had been on the battlefield for many years, he could not help but reveal a surprised expression.
“Dragon robe?” His voice trembled slightly in disbelief.
The bright yellow item that was folded neatly in the box was a dragon robe!
In the direction where everyone was looking, there was also a dragon stepping on auspicious clouds.
Making a dragon robe privately was no different from plotting to usurp the throne. It was equivalent to plotting a rebellion. In terms of crime, one would be subject to the nine familial exterminations!
Even though Gu Nuo’er was young, she understood this principle.
A hint of seriousness appeared on her pink cheeks.
“Elder Sister Wanxuan, close the door and call Mother over!”
She had to tell her mother about such a big matter.
When Noble Consort Qiao rushed over, she saw the Grace Defender Duke and his wife seated at the table, their brows furrowed tightly.
The half-open box was still on the table.
The bright yellow fabric inside stung her eyes.
Noble Consort Qiao’s expression changed. She asked Wanxuan to guard the door. No one was allowed to enter without permission!
This time, Noble Consort Qiao frowned as well. “What’s going on? Why is there… a dragon robe in our manor?!”
Her voice was extremely soft.
In comparison, Gu Nuo’er, who was sitting in Old Madam Qiao’s arms, seemed much calmer than before.
She rubbed her nose which was still in pain and told Noble Consort Qiao the clues that Auntie Qu had mentioned.
Noble Consort Qiao frowned. “In that case, this is a planned framing. Could it be that another person is tired of living and wants to provoke me?”
The Grace Defender Duke’s expression was solemn. He slowly shook his head. “Not necessarily. Perhaps it’s my political enemy. I’ve been a lofty steel barricade my entire life, being able to fight wars and refuse to accept mediation. I’ve also offended many officials who only care about profits and interests.
“However, this matter, regardless if it is targeted at you or me, it is targeted at our Qiao Family.”
Noble Consort Qiao bit her lip, a hint of contemplation appearing on her beautiful face.
No matter who did this, the person who framed them would definitely find an opportunity to expose the matter of the dragon robe.
Noble Consort Qiao pondered for a moment and said firmly, “Give me this box. I’ll get someone to deal with it cleanly.”
“Nonsense!” The Grace Defender Duke objected sternly. “This isn’t a joke. Making a dragon robe privately is a crime. If you were to take care of it and someone sees it, it’ll suggest that we have a guilty conscience!”
What should they do then? Were they going to leave the dragon robe here for others to watch?!
Old Madam Qiao slammed the table and sighed. “What a sin. We haven’t been at home for a few years, yet we actually attracted such a vicious thief!”
Gu Nuo’er opened her mouth, wanting to say something.
Wanxuan’s voice sounded from the door. “Eldest Young Master, you’re back. Old Master, Old Madam, and Her Highness are discussing something. Do you have any important matters?”
Qiao Xiuli’s calm voice sounded. “I’m fine. I just came back from the medical hall after getting acupuncture. When I passed by the city gate, I saw that the commoners were congested. I took a closer look and realized that it was a youth. He seemed to have returned from exterminating the bandits.
“Other people say that he’s Young Master Ye. I thought of what Nuo’er told me previously. Now, her first-grade guard’s surname is Ye. Therefore, I want to ask Grandfather and Grandmother if we should help. It’s because… this Young Master Ye and his soldiers are seriously injured.
“It originally has nothing to do with us, but since he’s Nuo’er’s guard, should we reach out and help him?”
As soon as he finished speaking, the door was opened from the inside.
A small figure rushed out.
Noble Consort Qiao’s exclamation sounded in the room. “Nuo’er! Don’t run out recklessly!”
