358 If You Want to Plead For Mercy, Then Don’t Open Your Mouth
Only then did the second prince, Gu Zitang, remember—
That was right. He originally had a stomachache and wanted to go to the toilet.
In the end, after watching the farce earlier, he lost the feeling of wanting to go to the toilet.
He rubbed his stomach silently.
Not long later, a small commotion occurred at the next table.
Song Youyun had gone to change her clothes for so long and hadn’t returned. Madam Song was very worried.
General Song called for the imperial guards and asked them to help keep an eye out when they were patrolling. He also called for the palace maids to go to the side pavilion building to take a look at the vicinity.
Gu Nuo’er grabbed a drumstick with her small hands and ate attentively.
However, her small ears were constantly capturing their conversation.
From the corner of her eye, she saw that her fifth brother Gu Zichen, who was beside her, had a calm expression from beginning to end. He had become the weak and elegant scholar from before.
No one would have thought that half an incense stick of time ago, he had said with killing intent that he wanted to kill Song Youyun and destroy her corpse.
At this moment, a young girl squeezed her way to Gu Nuo’er’s side.
She looked to be a few years older than Gu Nuo’er and was wearing a purple dress.
Gu Nuo’er was eating happily when she heard the girl say hesitantly, “Princess… do you still remember me?”
The child turned around.
The girl in front of her had delicate features and she seemed to have seen her somewhere before.
Gu Nuo’er licked her lips and thought for a moment before shaking her head silently.
“I don’t remember!”
The girl in purple quickly said, “A long time ago, His Highness brought the princess to buy clothes, but the two of you bumped into Miss Sheng and me at the clothing store.
At that time, the older sister from the Sheng family was very aggressive and had booked the entire clothing shop with money, not allowing anyone else to enter. In the end, she happened to bump into the second prince and the princess who wanted to pick out fabric.
“Later on, we even had an unhappy incident due to a misunderstanding. Princess, do you remember it now?”
Gu Nuo’er blinked her big eyes.
So it was her!
That time, she and the young lady of the Sheng Family kept on challenging her second brother to raise prices. In the end, Miss Sheng had no choice but to compensate them with 3,000 taels.
Later on, Gu Nuo’er even took out some of the money to help the poor.
The second prince, Gu Zitang, also heard this and was struck with a realization. “It’s you? The young miss of the Fang Family, doesn’t that mean…”
Halfway through his sentence, he quickly shut up.
Gu Zitang secretly glanced at the first prince.
Wasn’t the Fang Yirou, who had almost caused their eldest brother to lose his v*rginity, the eldest daughter of the Fang Family?
The person who found her way to them should be Fang Yirou’s sister, Fang Jinyu.
Why was she trying to get close to them?
Could it be that she wanted to plead for mercy for her sister?
The first prince, Gu Zixiao, was focused on tasting his tea and didn’t look up at her.
Gu Nuo’er put down the drumstick and wiped her chubby hands on the handkerchief twice.
Her long eyelashes fluttered as she said in a soft voice, “Elder Sister Fang, why are you looking for me? If you want to plead for leniency, then don’t say anything! This is Father’s order. Nuo’er can’t make any decisions.”
Fang Jinyu quickly waved her hands as if she was afraid of being implicated by Fang Yirou.
“No, no, no, Princess, you’ve misunderstood. I’m not here to plead for mercy on behalf of my mother and sister. It’s just that I didn’t come to apologize to you in person when I had a conflict with you and the second prince in the clothing store the other time. Today, given the chance to say a few words to you, please forgive me for my disrespect back then.”
This matter had already happened two years ago, but she only thought of apologizing now. This was clearly an excuse!
Gu Nuo’er’s lively eyes sized up Fang Jinyu’s uneasy expression.
She suddenly understood.
Fang Jinyu was worried that what Fang Yirou had done would implicate her and that Gu Nuo’er would settle the old and new scores with her in one go.
As expected, in the next second, Fang Jinyu said, “As for the emperor punishing my elder sister, I think the punishment is good! My elder sister is shameless and wants to seduce His Highness. She deserves it!”
