329 Go Back to the Person You Came From!
Late at night when it was quiet, it was supposed to be a good time to fall asleep.
However, as a dragon robe was secretly hidden in the Grace Defender Duke Manor, Noble Consort Qiao did not feel sleepy at all.
She couldn’t fall asleep, but she didn’t expect that Gu Nuo’er wouldn’t sleep either.
Gu Nuo’er hugged her fabric tiger and tossed and turned on the bed.
One moment, she was playing hide-and-seek with the fabric tiger. The next moment, she was wrapped up in the blanket and rolled from the left side of the bed to the right, giggling.
Noble Consort Qiao looked at her daughter’s innocent and cute face and finally revealed her first smile today.
“Nuo’er, come, let Mother hug you for a while.”
Gu Nuo’er immediately let go of her fabric tiger and crawled into Noble Consort Qiao’s arms.
The child had just taken a bath and she smelled fragrant and soft.
She knew that Noble Consort Qiao was in a bad mood.
This was because the person who had hidden the dragon robe in the Grace Defender Duke Manor was trying to frame them.
What was even more hateful was that they still couldn’t find out who this person was!
The Grace Defender Duke and Noble Consort Qiao had feuds with many people, and they couldn’t be sure who was the one who was trying to frame them.
This feeling of having enemies in the dark and herself in the light made Noble Consort Qiao, who had always been competitive, feel uncomfortable.
However, she couldn’t admit defeat because she still had to protect her family and daughter.
Gu Nuo’er reached out her small hand and gently touched her mother’s cheek.
“Mother~ Don’t worry, don’t worry~ Baby Nuo will protect you!”
Noble Consort Qiao held her daughter’s fair hand in her arms. She lowered her head and kissed Gu Nuo’er’s smooth and fair face.
“Nuo’er, listen to Mother. Tomorrow, Mother will return to the palace first and explain this matter to your father. However… Mother doesn’t know how your father will react. Mother just wants to tell you that if Mother doesn’t come back, you can live with your Grandfather and Grandmother first, alright? I believe that not long later, your father will also send someone to bring you back to the palace.”
Noble Consort Qiao had thought about it seriously.
If Gu Yihan was furious and didn’t believe that this was a setup…
She would take the blame alone and only hope that Gu Yihan would show mercy and let her family and child off!
Gu Nuo’er was Gu Yihan’s doted princess, so the possibility of her being implicated was the lowest.
However, when Noble Consort Qiao looked at her daughter’s still young face, she suddenly felt a lump in her throat and her eyes burned.
In the beginning, she gave birth to a daughter only because she wanted to stabilize her status and wealth.
However, when she really had a daughter, she only wanted to protect Gu Nuo’er well.
“Nuo’er, if Mother is no longer around in the future, you have to listen to your father obediently and not make him angry. If your father finds you another mother, you must not mention Mother’s name again lest you make your father unhappy.”
Noble Consort Qiao thought so much that she even thought about what Gu Nuo’er’s life would be like after she was bestowed with death.
She choked and said, “Your Empress Mother should also take good care of you. There’s also Consort Liang, Consort Lan, and your brother. You’re so smart, so Mother isn’t worried that you’ll suffer.”
Gu Nuo’er quickly wrapped her arms around Noble Consort Qiao’s neck tightly.
Her small body was warm and she looked weak and small.
“Mother, stop talking nonsense. Father won’t treat you like that! Baby Nuo will also catch the bad people. Father will know that Grandpa has been framed!”
Noble Consort Qiao thought that her daughter was just trying to comfort her.
She only smiled gently and patted Gu Nuo’er’s back. “Good Baby Nuo, Mother believes that you will. Hurry up and sleep. Be good.”
Gu Nuo’er really crawled under the blanket obediently. Her long eyelashes lowered, casting a shadow on her fair skin.
Noble Consort Qiao didn’t know that as Gu Nuo’er closed her eyes, she focused slightly. The box containing the dragon robe appeared in the void of her mind.
The child chanted in her mind, ‘Go back to the person you came from!’
With a swoosh, the dragon robe in the illusion seemed to have gained consciousness and floated in a certain direction.
