Chapter 522 - 522 Isn't Ye Siming Accompanying Her Highness Every Day?
522 Isn’t Ye Siming Accompanying Her Highness Every Day?
Yun Linzhou looked a little displeased.
However, this emotion flashed past in an instant. When one took a closer look, Yun Linzhou still had that silly smile on his face.
Gu Nuo’er followed Yun Chuhuai toward the main hall.
Along the way, Yun Chuhuai walked very slowly and tried his best to keep up with the child.
He said, “I’ve long heard that the Second Miss of the Xie Family slandered Linzhou in the state school and it was Your Highness who helped him out. My father and mother have always wanted to thank Your Highness for your kindness.”
Gu Nuo’er smiled sweetly. “It was nothing. You don’t have to thank me for that.”
Yun Chuhuai pursed his lips and smiled. He looked sideways at Ye Siming.
“Marquis Yongye’s martial techniques are superb and now you’re leading hundreds of soldiers under you. I want to find an opportunity to invite you out to get to know you better. Please do me the honor.”
However, Ye Siming only glanced at him. “I’m afraid I don’t have the free time.”
Yun Chuhuai was stunned.
What could Ye Siming be busy with every day? Wasn’t it just accompanying Her Highness?
Apart from accompanying Her Highness, did he not want to do anything else that was beneficial to him?
If one wanted to rise rapidly in officialdom, one had to know that it was very important to befriend those with influence and power.
Could it be that Marquis Yongye looked down on him because he was actually the adopted son of Prince Xuan?
But wasn’t he also General Bai’s adopted son?!
Yun Chuhuai found it strange, but he suppressed it for the time being.
Yun Linzhou listened quietly and sneered inwardly.
He knew very well that his older brother was very good at building connections and making use of them.
Unfortunately, Marquis Yongye was unmoved by force or persuasion. His efforts were in vain.
When Gu Nuo’er and the others walked near the main hall, they happened to encounter Prince Xuan and Princess Consort Xuan standing under the corridor, waiting to meet them.
Seeing Gu Nuo’er’s small figure approaching, Prince Consort Xuan hurriedly went down the steps and welcomed her with a smile.
“Greetings, Your Highness.”
Princess Consort Xuan had a round face and thin eyebrows. She looked dignified and had a flawless smile.
Prince Xuan was a prince who was born with a different surname from the royalty and was not Gu Yihan’s relatives.
Hence, Gu Nuo’er did not address him according to seniority.
She only said softly, “Aunt Princess Consort, there’s no need to be so polite. Elder Brother Siming and I will be intruding on you tonight!”
Even though Gu Nuo’er was young and loved by His Majesty, Princess Consort Xuan saw that she was not pretentious at all.
Instead, she was natural and unrestrained. Her big bright eyes were paired with a little cherry-like mouth. She was really cute.
Princess Consort Xuan pursed her lips with a smile. “Your Highness, you are being too polite. Marquis and yourself should just take it as if you are at your own home. We will prepare some dishes tonight. I hope that the food will be to Your Highness and the Marquis’s liking.”
Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming were welcomed to the main seat.
Then, Prince Xuan also sat down with the princess consort and their two sons.
Just then, Princess Consort Xuan looked around and said to Yun Chuhuai, “Chuhuai, go and keep an eye on the kitchen. Why hasn’t the chicken soup with shellfish meat for Her Highness been served yet?”
Yun Chuhuai hurriedly stood up, cupped his hands, and left in a hurry.
Gu Nuo’er fluttered her long eyelashes and saw everything.
Yun Chuhuai was adopted by Prince Xuan when they thought the couple thought that they were infertile and couldn’t have their own child.
Unexpectedly, when Yun Chuhuai was ten years old, Princess Consort Xuan got pregnant.
After Yun Linzhou was born, outsiders thought that the Prince Xuan couple did not favor their own son but instead, treated Yun Chuhuai as usual.
However, based on today’s meal, Gu Nuo’er inexplicably sensed that Yun Chuhuai was like an outsider who was being ordered around.
However, the child’s long eyelashes fluttered and her eyes were clear and cute.
In any case, what happened to the Yun Family had nothing to do with her.
After all, it was the business of Prince Xuan’s family on which son they wanted to dote on.
She only cared about whether there would be delicious meat later!
