331 You’re in a Good Mood Today, How Dare You Wear the Same Clothes As Me?
She took a deep breath and suddenly knelt while holding the box.
Gu Yihan looked sideways from the bronze mirror and his heart sank.
He quickly asked, “Did something happen to Nuo’er?”
What was in this box? Was it something that belonged to Nuo’er? What happened to Nuo’er?!
He hurriedly walked towards Noble Consort Qiao.
Noble Consort Qiao quickly said, “It’s not Nuo’er. Your Majesty, this has nothing to do with Nuo’er!”
She hurriedly tried to clear things up, afraid that Gu Yihan would vent his anger on the child after she explained the matter about the dragon robe.
When he heard that it had nothing to do with Gu Nuo’er, Gu Yihan slowed down.
The emperor’s handsome eyes swept across Noble Consort Qiao, sizing her up.
His tone was also indifferent. “Noble Consort, get up and talk. Even if you did something wrong, I’ll let bygones be bygones on Nuo’er’s account. However, you have to be honest and make things clear now.”
Noble Consort Qiao didn’t dare to get up.
She only held the box with both hands. “Your Majesty will know when you open it. I’ll explain after you take a look.”
Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows with a hint of confusion in his eyes.
He walked up to Noble Consort Qiao and flicked the box open.
The lid hit the box with a dull thud.
Noble Consort Qiao’s heart was up to her throat.
Gu Yihan looked at it for a long time but didn’t say anything.
This made Noble Consort Qiao’s heart pound.
Suddenly, Gu Yihan’s thin lips curled into a faint smile. “Noble Consort, you’ve been in the palace for many years and have been by my side for a long time. Why are you still playing such a little girl’s trick?”
After saying that, he took out a love lock from the box!
This was an item that symbolized the wonderfulness of love.
Usually, only young couples would like to go to the Marriage Shrine to ask for a love lock and then lock it on the bridge of the God of Love.
Noble Consort Qiao was stunned. “Huh?”
She looked up and saw Gu Yihan’s slender fingers holding a love lock made of jade, looking back and forth at it.
Although his tone sounded disdainful, his eyes were dyed with a smile.
“Forget it. Wait for me. When I come back from court, I’ll go to the Marriage Shrine with you to lock it.”
After saying that, Gu Yihan placed the love lock back into the box and left with the palace servants with a bright smile.
Noble Consort Qiao looked at the box in a daze.
There was no dragon robe there! Other than the love lock, there was nothing else.
Who had switched the items?!
On the other side, Bian Yuanzhong had just realized that he had come to court wearing a dragon robe.
He fumbled, wanting to take it off, but the imperial guards patrolling the area seemed to have sensed that something was wrong and walked towards him with their longspears!
As Bian Yuanzhong took it off, he panicked. “How is that possible? How can this be on me? The attendant didn’t say anything when I went out!”
He looked at his colleagues for help, but they kept backing away from him, keeping their distance.
This reckless Bian Yuanzhong was really tired of living to be wearing a dragon robe to court.
Just as Bian Yuanzhong was planning to escape first, Eunuch Chunshou’s voice sounded from behind.
“His Majesty has arrived!”
The officials all knelt on the ground and cheered ‘Long live Your Majesty’.
Only Bian Yuanzhong was so frightened that his knees went limp and he stood rooted to the ground in a daze.
A pair of imposing eyes under Gu Yihan’s long eyebrows swept over and he was scared silly.
Chunshou took a closer look and thought that he was seeing things.
There was actually an official who dared to wear a dragon robe to court. This was clearly provoking His Majesty!
Chunshou scolded angrily, “How dare you!”
Gu Yihan slowly walked up to him and smiled coldly. “Subject Bian, you seem to be in a good mood today to dare to wear the same clothes as me, hmmm?”
Only then did Bian Yuanzhong seem to have woken up from a dream. He suddenly knelt and cried bitterly, “Your Majesty! This subject, this subject has been wronged!”
