Chapter 473 - 473 Calling Me A Wild Man?!
473 Calling Me A Wild Man?!
Xie Xingli’s expression turned solemn. “I don’t have time to go back to the government office with you guys! I’m the Court of Judicial Review’s Lord Xie. This is my token. If there’s any dispute, I’ll directly compensate the inn with silver.”
He still had to rush back to the capital’s suburbs!
Unexpectedly, when the head constable heard this, he burst into laughter.
“In this day and age, anyone who commits a crime would all lie and say that they’re an official! Moreover, there was Third Zhang near west street who committed all kinds of crimes previously.
“He would go around saying that his brother-in-law was an official at the Court of Judicial Review. Even his underling who followed him said the same thing. Who knew if it was true?
“A few days ago, Third Zhang offended the emperor and was hung up on the city wall. He’s still hanging there in the sun! You actually dare to call yourself an official of the Court of Judicial Review? You’re the one I’m arresting. Take him away!”
At the head constable’s order, the few other constables behind him immediately came up to take him away.
They drew their sabers and started arguing with the Xie Family’s servants.
In the end, the constables gained the upper hand and forcefully took away the cursing Xie Xingli.
Gu Nuo’er quickly reminded them in a soft voice, “Uncles, you’ve missed out on one person. This older sister is also an accomplice!”
Xie Liuhua was about to hide behind the curtain at the side.
After hearing Gu Nuo’er’s words, the constables grabbed her and brought her out.
“Let go of me!” Xie Liuhua exclaimed repeatedly.
Seeing that Xie Xingli and Xie Liuhua had been taken away, Gu Nuo’er spread her hands and sighed. “They brought this upon themselves~”
However, Ye Siming didn’t care what happened to Xie Xingli and the others.
He only frowned and looked at Gu Nuo’er’s swaying fair and tender feet.
He placed her back on the bed and knelt on the footrest, helping her put on her shoes and socks.
However, the girl’s toes were still ice-cold.
Ye Siming frowned, his eyes flickering with black light, and his tone carried casual concern.
“If you dare to step on water again in the future, I’ll…”
Gu Nuo’er rolled over and stood up on the bed. She tilted her head and asked, “What would Elder Brother Siming do?”
Ye Siming looked at her watery eyes and was stunned.
He looked to the side unnaturally. “I’ll still change your shoes and socks for you.”
Otherwise, what else could he do?
Bite her? He couldn’t bear to.
Hit her? Impossible.
After a while, Xie Yinxiang and Jiang Xiaoran returned with a bunch of food.
Gu Nuo’er stood on her tiptoes and stood by the table. “Wow, there’s crispy roast duck, steamed chicken wrapped in lotus leaf, and candied lotus root! These are all my favorites!”
Xie Yinxiang placed the food on the table one by one and said with a smile, “Young Master Jiang has spent a lot of money today. He was the one who paid for all these.”
Jiang Xiaoran pursed his lips proudly. “It’s all small money. There’s no need to take it to heart. Sigh, by the way, Siming, when we came up just now, we saw the waiter talking to a constable.
There were also people whispering in the hall, saying that people had been arrested. What happened? Could it be that there were thieves in this inn?”
If that were the case, it wouldn’t be safe to let Xie Yinxiang stay here alone.
He could be a good person to the end and change an inn for her.
Ye Siming picked Gu Nuo’er up and placed her on the stool.
He then wiped her small hands with a white towel.
He said casually, “The Court of Judicial Review’s Xie Xingli brought people to the inn to cause trouble just now. He said that Miss Xie had an affair with a wild man. He couldn’t find her but ended up being arrested by the waiter.”
Xie Yinxiang was stunned. The cup in her hand fell to the ground and rolled along the carpet.
Jiang Xiaoran laughed when he heard this. “Wild man? Miss Xie has always been with me. Why hadn’t I seen any wild man?”
After he finished speaking, he saw Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming looking at him silently.
Jiang Xiaoran reacted and shouted, “He’s calling me a wild man?!”
