344 Nuo’er Isn’t Going Anywhere, I’ll Just Follow You
On the wall, a figure flashed.
Gu Zixiao landed very lightly.
His gaze swept out and he saw a fair-skinned child in a red dress hugging a branch and trembling on a lychee tree.
From afar, it looked like a chubby chick was perched on a branch.
Her eyes were big and round. At this moment, they were watery and her lips were pursed, looking very pitiful and aggrieved.
When Gu Nuo’er saw Gu Zixiao jump over the wall, she secretly heaved a sigh of relief.
Phew~ She had finally tricked her brother over!
She hadn’t met Gu Zixiao many times. Now that the siblings had met, she recognized him, but he didn’t recognize this child.
He only felt that the little sister in front of him was extremely adorable, like an exquisite porcelain doll.
“Eldest Brother~ I can’t come down!” Gu Nuo’er reached out a dirty little hand, wanting him to carry her. “Help me!”
Gu Zixiao looked up with a quiet expression. “You can get up the tree, but you don’t dare to come down?”
Gu Nuo’er’s small body trembled. “It’s too high~ I’m only five years old, so I can’t come down!”
Gu Zixiao heard a sobbing tone in her childish voice, but her tone was very delicate, like an angry little white ball.
He found her a little cute, but after having been at the borders for many years, he had long become someone who didn’t like to smile. At this moment, the corners of his lips only twitched a little.
“Then I’ll teach you. Grab the branch with your hands and slowly step on the tree trunk with your legs. After borrowing the force to stabilize yourself, let go bit by bit and hold onto the next branch. I can save you once, but there might not be people around who will save you every time in the future. You have to learn to save yourself first.”
When Gu Zixiao said these words, the child immediately puffed up her pink cheeks.
Hmph, bad brother, he didn’t even come up to carry her!
If it were Elder Brother Siming, he would have carried her down long ago!
Gu Nuo’er didn’t care about these reasons. She closed her eyes and loosened her grip.
Nuo’er was off—!
Gu Zixiao saw that this child was actually so willful! She didn’t cooperate at all and simply closed her eyes and let go, was just waiting to fall to the ground?
He was shocked and quickly walked over. He reached out his hands and caught the child firmly in his arms.
Only then did Gu Zixiao realize that the child’s body was fragrant and light.
She looked so small but turned out to be so light.
Gu Nuo’er opened her big watery eyes and smiled sweetly, looking very cute with her red lips and white teeth.
“Look, Eldest Brother, I’ve also taught you something. Don’t talk so much logic in the future. Children won’t reason with you sometimes.”
Gu Zixiao was caught between laughter and tears.
“Kid, whose family are you from? Why are you so eloquent?”
Gu Nuo’er said in a soft voice, “Yours.”
Gu Zixiao was stunned. “Mine?”
Gu Nuo’er poked his chest with her small hand. “Eldest Brother, you really don’t recognize me anymore? I’m Nuo’er! Your biological sister!”
Gu Zixiao was shocked.
No wonder the child in front of him looked a little familiar.
However, he did not expect the baby in swaddling clothes back then to look so lively and playful now!
A smile appeared on Gu Zixiao’s cold and determined face. Even his tone was much gentler.
“Nuo’er, it’s really been a long time. I’ve received your letter. I brought you a gift from Yi State. I’ll give it to you later. Brother is going to change my clothes now. Do you know the way back to Xiangli Palace?”
When Gu Nuo’er heard this, she quickly hugged her brother’s arm tightly.
“Eldest Brother, Nuo’er isn’t going anywhere. I’ll just follow you.”
Brother, you mustn’t go! There’s a bad woman there who is coveting your body!
