345 Bad Woman, Watch How I Deal With Her Later!
Gu Zixiao couldn’t bear to refuse her, but his clothes were wet and he couldn’t wear such clothes to Xiangli Palace.
As the first prince, if he did not pay attention to etiquette, he would probably make his father unhappy.
Gu Nuo’er could tell that he was in a difficult position. The child’s long eyelashes fluttered a few times before she sighed like an adult.
“Alright, Baby Nuo can enter the side pavilion building with Brother.”
She really didn’t want Gu Zixiao to meet that bad woman in the room. Otherwise, it’d be hard for him to clear his name.
However, since her brother had no choice but to change his clothes, the child naturally had a brilliant plan!
Gu Zixiao carried Gu Nuo’er to one of the side pavilion buildings.
The palace maid who was supposed to deliver the clothes had yet to arrive.
Gu Nuo’er walked to the bed and hid her entire body behind the bed curtains.
She stuck her head out. “Eldest Brother, if someone comes later, pretend that Nuo’er isn’t here!”
Gu Zixiao was puzzled. Then, he thought that the child must be running around to play and was unwilling to be brought back by Noble Consort Qiao’s palace servants.
At this point, he didn’t think too much about it. He just sat at the table and pondered quietly, waiting for the palace maid to bring him clothes.
Gu Nuo’er looked at her brother’s cold side profile and tall figure. Even when he was sitting, he was as straight as a pine tree.
Wow~ So handsome~
At this moment, someone knocked on the door—
“Your Highness, are you inside? This servant has brought clothes over.”
The child quickly retracted her head.
Seeing that she had hidden well, Gu Zixiao said in a deep voice, “Come in.”
The door creaked open and the palace maid from before placed a set of clean clothes on the table.
At the same time, she also brought a teapot and a teacup for Gu Zixiao.
The palace maid said, “Your Highness, there’s still some time before the banquet begins. You can change your clothes and have a rest here for a bit while drinking tea.”
Gu Zixiao nodded, his tone deep and distant.
“I got it. You may leave.”
“Yes.” Before the palace maid left, she secretly glanced at the teapot from the corner of her eye.
After she left, Gu Nuo’er ran out and tiptoed to the table. She took the teapot and sniffed it.
She immediately pinched her nose and lowered her voice. “Eldest Brother, she lied! This is wine!”
Gu Zixiao lowered his head to take a whiff and frowned.
Gu Nuo’er pinched her chin and pondered.
Since it was wine, was the servant lying to trick her eldest brother into drinking it?
However, her eldest brother wasn’t a fool. How could he not differentiate the fragrance of wine and tea?
At this moment, a light flashed in Gu Nuo’er’s mind.
This bad woman must be thinking that even if Elder Brother didn’t drink it and the man and woman were alone in the same room, she would still have a way to make things ambiguous!
After all, the wine and clothes were all here. If Gu Zixiao didn’t explain properly, he would be used by someone with ulterior motives!
Gu Nuo’er clenched her small fists. “Damn it, bad woman. Watch how I deal with her later!”
Seeing his sister’s reaction, Gu Zixiao frowned. “Nuo’er, do you know who instigated this?”
Gu Nuo’er was about to answer when she sensed that someone had walked near the side pavilion building.
She quickly hid and said in a small voice, “Elder Brother, I’ll explain things to you later. Later on, pretend to lean your head against the table and rest. Don’t say anything! Leave the rest to Nuo’er!”
Although Gu Zixiao didn’t know why she said that, he also sensed that something was amiss.
As Gu Nuo’er kept herself well hidden, a probing question suddenly sounded from the door. “Your Highness, are you there?”
Gu Zixiao frowned and leaned against the table with his hand on his forehead as if he had a headache and was unconscious.
The person outside didn’t hear a response for a long time and reached out to push the door open.
