565 Marquis Yongye Is Actually So Capable
Gu Zixiao walked over, his jawline tense. He couldn’t help but say solemnly, “I’ve been looking for you for a long time, afraid that you’d get lost. Where did you go? Why didn’t you tell Brother?”
Gu Nuo’er saw that he was really a little worried.
She quickly reached out her soft arms and said in a soft tone, “Eldest Brother, I’ll tell you what’s going on after you carry Nuo’er.”
Ye Siming was a little unwilling to let go. The child even secretly nudged her butt forward.
Left with no choice, Ye Siming could only send her to Gu Zixiao’s arms.
Gu Zixiao carried his sister and his tightly furrowed brows relaxed.
“Tell me, where did you go?”
Gu Nuo’er quickly told him about how she had met an unfamiliar maidservant who asked her to send a gift to Grand Preceptor Du on her behalf.
The child was beaming with joy as she spoke. “Therefore, after discussing with Elder Brother Siming, we decided to put the item in the mastermind’s gift box! To give someone a taste of their own medicine, to pay back in one’s own coin!”
When Gu Zixiao heard the entire story, he frowned slightly.
“Today is Grand Preceptor Du’s birthday and many people have come. There are all sorts of people here and it’s possible to encounter people with dirty hands. Moreover, Grand Preceptor Du has been an official for many years back then. I’m afraid he has secretly made political enemies.”
Gu Zixiao looked at his sister’s fair face.
Everyone in the world knew that his sister was his father’s treasure.
To dare to use Gu Nuo’er to scheme against Grand Preceptor Du, wasn’t this person afraid that he would die?
Or was he completely confident that he wouldn’t be found out?
Gu Zixiao looked at Ye Siming and sighed. “Marquis Yongye is actually so capable of accurately finding that person’s things from so many gifts?”
Ye Siming raised his eyebrows and didn’t say anything.
What was so great about having a good sense of smell? The first prince had really seen too little in life
Gu Nuo’er sounded proud.
Her eyes were sparkling and her small face was filled with a smug smile, causing her pink and fair cheeks to curve into the shape of a small bun.
“Of course. Elder Brother Siming is especially amazing. He won’t get it wrong. Eldest Brother, just wait to watch a good show~”
Gu Zixiao nodded.
Apart from being more diligent in taking care of his sister, Ye Siming must have his own outstanding points to be able to obtain his father’s admiration.
Therefore, Gu Zixiao carried Gu Nuo’er and went to the courtyard where the banquet was held together with Ye Siming
As the time approached, the courtyard was spacious and there were already many tables and chairs placed. Most of the guests had already taken their seats.
When they saw the first prince, the little princess, and Marquis Yongye, everyone quickly stood up and invited them to take a seat.
Gu Zixiao nodded. “Official uncles, there’s no need to stand on ceremony. We’re all here today to celebrate Grand Preceptor Du’s birthday. There’s no need to be so polite.”
“Thank you, Your Highness, Princess, and Marquis Yongye.” Everyone roared out their thanks before sitting down.
During the banquet, a girl in red widened her eyes. “This is the first prince?”
When Zhuang Miaoyin, who was beside her, heard this, she glanced at her with a hint of disdain.
“Elder Sister, you’ve been away from the capital for so long. Have you even forgotten what His Highness looks like?”
Zhuang Ruoyun slapped her head regretfully.
She had only seen the first prince a few times and it had been when she was young.
All these years, she had been raised in her hometown. How would she know that the person she had offended was actually the first prince?!
Thinking back to how she had called him a p*rvert just now, Zhuang Ruoyun felt that she was not far from death.
At this moment, she lowered her head in embarrassment and lost her appetite.
Grand Preceptor Du was the last to arrive. He looked dignified and in terms of status, he was very respected.
“I’m late. Everyone, I’ve kept you waiting. Let’s start the banquet.”
