373 Then I’d Have to Carry You. What’s Wrong With That?
When they were about to go back, Gu Nuo’er prepared to get on the horse and get Ye Siming to send her back to the palace.
The child raised her two small hands, tiptoed, and tried her best to go up.
“Phew… Damn it, why is Uncle Bai’s big horse so tall?!”
Gu Nuo’er tugged at the saddle with her two small hands. There were a few times when she wanted to push herself up, but it was all in vain.
Bai Yi’s warhorse had already lowered its head leisurely and started to eat grass.
Ye Siming crossed his arms at the side and smiled gently. “Try again. Otherwise, will you beg me to carry you up?”
Gu Nuo’er puffed up her pink cheeks, her fair face filled with an unyielding expression.
She wasn’t going to admit defeat!
The child tried twice more, but it was all in vain.
However, he was sweating profusely from the heat.
When Duan Hanping saw this, he couldn’t help but suggest, “Old Master Jiang, do you have a small stool for the princess to step on?”
Gu Nuo’er raised her childish voice. “No need! Hmph, I must rely on my own capabilities today!”
After saying that, her beautiful watery eyes swept over and she gave Ye Siming a fuming look.
From Ye Siming’s angle, the side of her face was slightly puffed up like a white bun.
Ye Siming raised his eyebrows and waited calmly.
He wanted to see how long the child would persist today before taking the initiative to ask for help.
Gu Nuo’er loosened her grip. She seemed to have thought of something and temporarily gave up on working hard to get into the saddle.
Instead, she walked to the front of the horse and placed her hands on her hips, starting to reason with Bai Yi’s warhorse in a childish voice.
“Big Horse, I’m only five years old this year. You’re taller than me, so you’re an adult amongst the horses. Adults can’t go against children.
“Can you give way to me? I want to climb up. Lower your head and lie down, alright?! Don’t make things too difficult for children! This is wrong!”
Bai Yi’s warhorse snorted and blinked its black eyes at Gu Nuo’er.
The child’s eyes were bright and sparkling.
After a while, this warhorse seemed to have a human nature and was really prepared to lie down.
Gu Nuo’er was delighted and smiled sweetly. “You’re so awesome!”
Ye Siming watched from the side and was stunned.
Did she really make the warhorses listen to her?
The boy gritted his teeth and went forward to pull the child into his arms.
Gu Nuo’er let out a cry and blinked her big eyes. “Elder Brother Siming, how can you go back on your word? I’ll be able to get on the horse myself soon!”
Ye Siming carried her and got onto the horse swiftly.
His voice was filled with determination. “I’m afraid that you’ll cry if you fall. Then, I’d have to carry you. What’s wrong with that?”
Gu Nuo’er snorted with her small nose, indicating that she wasn’t convinced.
In the end, Duan Hanping and Old Jiang waved their hands and watched Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming leave.
On the way back to the palace, the sun was setting, casting down sunlight in large patches. The road in front of them seemed to be covered in a layer of golden wheat waves.
The round red sun hung in the sky and looked like it was going down behind the mountain.
Gu Nuo’er sat in front of Ye Siming, fluttering her long eyelashes. Her black and lively eyes were like two sparkling stars.
Ye Siming didn’t ride his horse fast. The hair on the child’s forehead fluttered gently, making her look petite and exceptionally adorable.
Gu Nuo’er was in a good mood. She said, “Elder Brother Siming, when my sweet pastry shop is ready, I’ll get Qu Niang and Nanny Hu to help. This way, they’ll all have someone to rely on!”
Ye Siming was stunned.
It turned out that the child was still thinking about these two people.
Nanny Hu had been bullied by her daughter-in-law but she chose to swallow her anger. She was not living well now.
Qu Niang bravely divorced her husband and was now alone by herself.
The child had actually considered them to this extent.
“The reason you wanted to open a shop is so that they can have support?”
“That’s right! Qu Niang, Nanny Hu, and Grandpa Jiang are all strong and independent people. If I just give them a favor directly, they won’t accept it.”
