343 She Might As Well Go and Intercept Brother Now!
Noble Consort Qiao carried Gu Nuo’er and alighted from the emperor’s dragon boat. She reminded the child, “There’s water everywhere. Baby Nuo, promised Mother not to run around carelessly, alright?”
The child nodded obediently and agreed. However, when Noble Consort Qiao turned around, she ran out of sight.
Noble Consort Qiao looked around, not knowing where Gu Nuo’er had run off to.
She shook her head and sighed. “This child.”
Wanyin tried to persuade her. “Your Highness, don’t worry. There are imperial guards guarding the surroundings. The princess won’t be able to run far.”
Little Nuo’er had always been naughty and active. Noble Consort Qiao was unwilling to restrain her, so she let her run around and play by herself first.
On this island, there were rows of palaces.
As the main palace, Xiangli Palace had two ornamental gardens at the back.
Gu Nuo’er liked to eat lychees, so Gu Yihan got someone to plant lychee trees here.
Lychees were not used to the weather in the capital and needed to be nurtured regularly by specialized gardeners. Otherwise, the child would not be able to eat sweet and delicious lychees every summer.
It was the end of spring and early summer now. The lychees hadn’t fruited yet, and the trees in the garden all looked similar.
Gu Nuo’er didn’t get lost, but she didn’t know where her eldest brother had gone.
According to the hint in her dream, there must be a bad woman who wanted to bully her brother!
Gu Nuo’er had to quickly find her brother.
Behind the ornamental garden, there were four side pavilion buildings built for resting.
Usually, if the emperor held a banquet here, officials who needed to rest or some young ladies whose clothes had to be stained and needed a change could come here.
At this moment, the banquet was not held and the surroundings of the side pavilion buildings were also silent.
Gu Nuo’er ran here first. She pushed open every door and looked for the suspicious wine cups that looked like the one she saw in her dream.
However, after looking through the four side pavilion buildings, she found that nothing was placed in them.
Could it be that the person who made the move hadn’t arrived yet?
Gu Nuo’er sat on the steps, her fair hand supporting her chin as she fell into deep thought, looking innocent.
The child thought for a long time and felt that something was wrong.
She mustn’t let her eldest brother enter the room!
Otherwise, even if he didn’t drink any wine, if that bad sister came in and wanted to slander him with a few words, he wouldn’t be able to explain himself.
She might as well go and intercept her brother now!
Gu Nuo’er made up her mind and quickly got up. She quickly ran to the Xiangli Palace in front.
Unexpectedly, just as she ran to the ornamental garden, she heard a shocked female voice coming from the small stone path a wall away—
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry. This servant deserves to die. I dirtied Your Highness’s clothes. This servant knows my mistake. Your Highness, please punish me!”
Oh?! Eldest Brother is over there?!
Gu Nuo’er’s small figure quickly leaned against the wall and eavesdropped on the commotion.
A cold voice said, “It’s fine. Get up and bring me a clean set of clothes.”
“Yes, this servant will make the arrangements now. Your Highness, please move to the side pavilion building and wait for a moment.”
When Gu Nuo’er heard this, she frowned.
Oh no, if her eldest brother were to walk straight from the stone path to the side pavilion building, what excuse would she use to trick him out?
Gu Nuo’er’s lively eyes darted around and she saw the lychee tree at the side. She suddenly had an idea.
Gu Zixiao was tall and straight.
He had been situated at the borders all year round, tempering his temperament like a treasured saber.
He was extremely sharp, but not aggressive.
Gu Zixiao was wearing a silver python robe today. The hem of his clothes had already been wet from the teacup the palace maid had carried just now, leaving a conspicuous stain on it.
Just as he was about to walk to the side pavilion building, a little girl’s cries suddenly came from the ornamental garden behind the wall—
“Boohoo~ I can’t get down~ I’m scared!”
