571 She Was Not Stupid, But She Was Bad
Grand Preceptor Du didn’t expect this.
How could his good grandson be involved in this matter?!
The future crown prince actually had an unknown story with this Zhuang Family’s eldest daughter?
Grand Preceptor Du’s anger subsided a little. He asked his grandson in surprise, “Zixiao, what’s going on?”
“Just now, when I was playing hide-and-seek with Nuo’er, I discovered Eldest Young Miss Zhuang sleeping soundly in a room in the front courtyard.”
There was actually such a thing?
Zhuang Miaoyin was about to break the handkerchief in her hand.
She had never expected that the first prince would bump into a village girl like Zhuang Ruoyun!
Why was Zhuang Ruoyun so lucky?
Gu Zixiao said, “From this, Eldest Young Miss Zhuang can’t have been the one to switch the gifts.”
Zhuang Ruoyun watched from the side and felt ashamed.
The first prince was so upright and was willing to stand up for her in such a situation.
She recalled that just now, she had even scolded the first prince for being despicable.
She couldn’t help but feel guilty.
Grand Preceptor Du’s sharp gaze looked at Zhuang Miaoyin again.
“Second Miss Zhuang, do you have anything else to say?”
“Grand Preceptor, I am really innocent!” Zhuang Miaoyin said, tears welling up in her eyes.
Seeing that she was crying so pitifully, someone couldn’t help but say, “Perhaps this is really a misunderstanding? I don’t think Second Miss Zhuang would be so stupid to tamper with the gift box when she clearly knows that the Grand Preceptor wants to open it.”
When Gu Nuo’er heard this, she let out a soft and childish snort!
She wasn’t stupid, but she was bad.
Gu Nuo’er said softly, “Grand Preceptor grandpa, I have a way to prove if Foolish Zhuang [1. The word ‘two’ in Chinese is also used to call people a fool.] was the one who did it.”
Zhuang Miaoyin stopped crying.
Her Highness called her a fool?!
However, Grand Preceptor Du didn’t care about the nickname Gu Nuo’er had given Zhuang Miaoyin. He only said, “Sweetheart, why don’t you tell me?”
Gu Nuo’er smiled. “Didn’t Eldest Sister Zhuang say just now that she saw Foolish’s maidservant going to get someone to order this painting? Then I want to ask Eldest Sister Zhuang, did the maidservant you mentioned come today?”
Zhuang Ruoyun hesitated for a moment before nodding. “I think she’s here, but I haven’t seen her for a long time.”
Hmph, she definitely couldn’t see because the maidservant had been instructed by Zhuang Miaoyin to do something bad and went to hide!
Gu Nuo’er hugged Ye Siming’s arms and sat on his lap, swinging her small feet.
Her tone was very light. “Then it’s simple. Coincidentally, I’ve also seen that maidservant!
“The maidservant actually handed the painting in the box to me. She thought that a child would not understand and wanted to lie to me and asked me to give it to Grand Preceptor grandpa!”
Everyone was shocked.
Grand Preceptor Du nodded with a dark expression. “Fortunately, Her Highness is smart and found me to tell me about this matter directly. Now, we already know that the mastermind should be Second Miss Zhuang.”
Zhuang Miaoyin’s cries soften and she was about to speak when she was interrupted by Gu Nuo’er.
“Foolish Zhuang, don’t be anxious. I’ll make you admire me wholeheartedly immediately. You indeed didn’t put this painting in your gift, but since you asked me to gift it, you’ll regret it!”
As she spoke, the child looked up, her sparkling eyes filled with cuteness.
“Servant, go get a brush and paper. Eldest Sister Zhuang and I will write down on the paper what clothes the maidservant older sister is wearing and what characteristics she has. With a final comparison, we’ll know if it’s the same person.
“If it turns out to be the same, then, it’s a sure bet that Foolish Zhuang wants to use me to cause trouble for Grand Preceptor grandpa!”
Zhuang Miaoyin’s face was completely ashen!
The little princess’s move was really unexpected!
It was over. It was all over now!
