Chapter 481 - 481 Poked the Older Brothers' Nest!
481 Poked the Older Brothers’ Nest!
The first prince’s expression turned solemn and he quickly stood in front of everyone. “Father, my younger brothers and Marquis Yongye don’t know anything. They were called over by me. If you want to give out punishment, I’m willing to bear all responsibilities.”
Ye Siming frowned and shielded the first prince behind him.
The alpha wolf wouldn’t let others take the blame at a time like this.
Ye Siming said very honestly and coldly, “His Highnesses weren’t planning on making a move. I’m the only one who wants to kill this group of nonsense-spouting monks.
“Even if Your Majesty asks, I’ll tell you the truth. They have ulterior motives and are targeting the princess. We can’t keep them.”
Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows and looked at his sons behind Ye Siming.
“You guys think so too?”
Everyone seemed to be encouraged and determined to be punished together.
They nodded in unison.
Eunuch Chunshou reported to Gu Yihan in a soft voice, “Just now, the imperial guards even discovered that the Grace Defender Duke’s grandson, Eldest Young Master Qiao, also wanted to enter the palace. However, this servant brought people to dissuade him and had him go back. He’s probably here for the princess’s matter as well.”
Gu Yihan’s eyes were deep, making it impossible to tell if he was happy or angry.
However, Ye Siming only looked at Gu Nuo’er. Her face was fair, innocent, and cute.
This made him even more determined to protect her.
Gu Yihan suddenly chuckled, which then turned into loud laughter.
The princes were stunned and looked at each other.
Had their father gone crazy from anger?
Did he think that they were banding together to rebel?
Gu Nuo’er couldn’t help but say in a soft voice, “Elder Brother Siming and my brothers, you’ve misunderstood! This is a trap Father and I set up for the baddies!”
The second prince asked in confusion, “What do you mean?”
Gu Yihan was overjoyed.
“My good sons and Marquis Yongye really didn’t disappoint me!”
Gu Yihan raised his eyebrows and said with a smile, “I did have nightmares for two days. I dreamed that Nuo’er was pestered by that demon fox, but Nuo’er is a lucky star! I’m not afraid that the demon fox will take revenge on her at all.”
The emperor slowly explained the whole story.
It turned out that after Gu Yihan woke up, he didn’t care about this dream and only felt that it was strange.
When he was dreaming, it was as if someone had been whispering in his ear.
Gu Yihan was very sensitive and didn’t think that the demon fox was causing trouble. Instead, he thought that someone had maliciously plotted against him.
However, he wasn’t sure either.
That was why he wanted to test things out.
If someone really planned this, they would definitely not be able to help but show some signs.
Therefore, Gu Yihan had summoned the Directorate of Astronomy, initially planning on using them to spread the news.
However, he didn’t expect to hit the jackpot.
There was actually someone behind the scenes in the Directorate of Astronomy!
In order to catch a big fish, Gu Yihan played along.
However, he was afraid that his precious daughter would think that he was really going to send her away.
Hence, he spoke to Gu Nuo’er first. This wasn’t the first time the father and daughter had worked together to scam others.
This time, Gu Nuo’er was planning on not saying anything and just watching as her father catch the baddies!
Initially, Gu Yihan had sent people to keep an eye on this group of wild monks in the dark.
This was because they were instructed by someone and thus would definitely contact that person again.
Unexpectedly, he heard that someone had sneaked into the hall and hurriedly brought his daughter to catch the mastermind.
To his discovery, he realized that his sons and Marquis Yongye wanted to kill the monks to vent their anger.
Since they were doing this for Nuo’er’s sake, Gu Yihan was happy!
He chuckled. “I’ll reward you guys after this matter is over.”
Gu Nuo’er leaned on her father’s shoulder.
She let out a childish yawn.
“I thought that we could catch the baddies, but I didn’t expect them to poke an older brothers’ nest1! Brothers, go back and rest! We’ll let these bad guys stay alive for another night.”
After saying that, she looked at Ye Siming. “It’s already so late. Elder Brother Siming can sleep in the palace!”
