376 He and I Can Be considered Old Enemies
The child turned around and stuck out her butt to rummage through the box.
After a long time, she finally found a black eyebrow brush that she had plundered from Elder Sister Wanyin before she went out today!
Gu Nuo’er drew a mustache above her lips based on her intuition.
Then, she fluttered her long eyelashes, her big eyes sparkling.
“Fifth Brother, how is it? Do I look a lot more mature now?”
Gu Zichen looked at his sister’s kitten-like face and couldn’t help but clap and laugh. “Nuo’er, your current outfit is really… pulling wool over people’s eyes and is unparalleled.”
The child raised her head proudly. “Of course.”
The carriage drove to the lake and stopped.
It was summer and the scenery at Dingshan Lake was beautiful. The water was glistening and the mountain looked magnificent under the bright sun.
Gu Zichen got out of the carriage and turned around, wanting to pick Gu Nuo’er up.
Unexpectedly, the child reached out a small hand and slapped his palm.
Gu Nuo’er lowered her voice, her fair face filled with seriousness. “Fifth Brother! Watch your attitude! We’re now a prince and his attendant. How can a prince be helping his attendant off the carriage?!”
Gu Zichen was amused by her adult-like tone.
“I’m just an unloved prince. These officials might not take me seriously. So what if I were to treat an attendant better?”
After saying that, he carried the child and brought her down from the carriage.
The sweet milk smell on Gu Nuo’er’s body was quite strong.
Gu Zichen felt that his sister’s disguise would definitely not escape everyone’s eyes.
However, since she was his sister, he was happy to put on a good show with her.
Gu Nuo’er stood on the ground with her small feet and widened her watery eyes. “Fifth Brother, you, you, you! Hmph, you aren’t allowed to do this next time!”
She blew at her fake beard and then imitated the way the teachers of the academy walked. She deliberately swayed her small body and walked forward.
When Gu Zichen saw this, he smiled.
His sister was the cutest girl he had ever seen.
Gu Zichen and Gu Nuo’er walked towards the lake.
At this moment, there were already a few pleasure boats on the water beside the willows by the shore of Dingshan Lake.
The pleasure boats were elegantly built. A faint pink gauze fluttered in the wind, revealing the boats’ elegance and gentleness in the reflection of the lake.
However, the afternoon sun was a little scorching.
Gu Nuo’er’s small face had already turned red from the sunlight.
On her fair and tender skin, a pair of cute red glow hung above her cheeks, making her eyes look even darker and more lively.
Gu Nuo’er covered her eyes with her small hand and looked at one of the pleasure boats.
There were already two to three people standing at the bow chatting. At the side, there was also a performer playing the zither.
She recognized the Minister of Works, Hang Tongfu, standing among the crowd at a glance.
The child pointed in their direction and whispered to Gu Zichen, “Fifth Brother, do you see that uncle in the brown robe? He’s the person who is in charge of procuring fabric for the palace! His name is…”
“Wang Fu? I know him.” Before Gu Nuo’er could finish introducing him, Gu Zichen interrupted.
“Eh? Fifth Brother knows him?”
Gu Zichen smiled profoundly, his gaze unfathomable. “We don’t just know each other. He and I can be considered old enemies.
“Sister probably doesn’t know this, but three years ago, I also thought of the method you mentioned. I wanted to get to know this Lord Wang so that I could develop my influence through the palace’s procurement team.
“Unfortunately, Lord Wang only gave me two words.”
Gu Nuo’er sensed that something was wrong and asked, “What is it?”
“Wishful thinking.” Gu Zichen sneered.
When the child heard this, her eyes widened.
This was bad. According to her fifth brother’s personality, wouldn’t he take the opportunity to take revenge this time?
Would he obediently try again to get to know this official who had humiliated him before?
