Chapter 575 - 575 Elder Brother Siming, Where Did You Go?!
575 Elder Brother Siming, Where Did You Go?!
Grand Preceptor Du and Gu Zixiao looked at each other.
They saw surprise in each other’s eyes.
They were used to seeing those young ladies in the capital smiling without revealing their teeth. They never revealed their thoughts either.
Now that Zhuang Ruoyun had casually told them her true thoughts, they were really surprised.
Gu Zixiao couldn’t help but ask, “The Zhuang Family doesn’t treat you well?”
Zhuang Ruoyun pursed her lips and said, “I was born by a concubine. First Mother didn’t like me and sent me to the countryside and found a grandmother to take care of me. They don’t treat me badly, but they don’t ask about me much.”
Even in this state, she didn’t say anything bad about the Zhuang Family.
Instead, she just told the truth.
It seemed that it was true that the Zhuang Family didn’t give her much money.
Grand Preceptor Du sighed. He didn’t need that pearl either.
Therefore, he turned to the butler and said, “Go and bring the pearl over. Also, take two banknotes and give them to Eldest Young Miss Zhuang.”
Zhuang Ruoyun hurriedly waved her hand. “There’s no need for money. Just give me the pearl. Thank you, Grand Preceptor.”
Grand Preceptor Du smiled. “If you don’t come to my manor to learn in the future, I’ll have to thank you in another way. Moreover, you chose to side with reason instead of your family today. I admire such qualities very much. Take the money. There might be times when you need it.”
Zhuang Ruoyun was not a stickler for the rules.
She immediately bowed clumsily and accepted it after thanking Grand Preceptor Du.
Seeing that it was getting late, Grand Preceptor Du said, “I have to go and see why that old fellow Grace Defender Duke hasn’t brought sweetheart over yet. Eldest Young Miss Zhuang, this old man won’t send you off. Go ahead.”
Zhuang Ruoyun quickly nodded.
After Grand Preceptor Du left, she looked back and realized that the first prince was still standing there.
He had no intention of leaving at all!
Looking at his handsome eyes, Zhuang Ruoyun felt guilty.
Thinking of how she had called the first prince a p*rvert just now, she lowered her head silently.
Zhuang Ruoyun had always been a person who would change after admitting her mistake.
She took a deep breath and said, “Your Highness, I’ve offended you in the front courtyard just now. Please forgive me.”
Gu Zixiao looked at her with a deep gaze and didn’t say anything for a moment.
Zhuang Ruoyun’s heart was pounding.
Could it be that… the first prince was a very vengeful person?
This was bad.
A moment later, Gu Zixiao spoke as if he was a little puzzled. “What’s the thing that’s exposed from your sleeve?”
Zhuang Ruoyun was stunned and looked down!
She had wrapped up glutinous rice balls in a handkerchief earlier. Two of them actually fell out and got stuck to her sleeve!
This was extremely awkward!
Zhuang Ruoyun removed the glutinous rice balls and silently stuffed them back into her handkerchief.
She explained in embarrassment, “I eat a lot and First Mother is very strict with me. She says that women don’t eat so much. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to eat when I return home tonight, so I packed some of the dishes from the banquet…”
Gu Zixiao felt that his horizons had been repeatedly refreshed by this amazing woman today.
His thin lips moved, not knowing what to say.
After a while, he said, “Is what you hid enough to eat?”
Zhuang Ruoyun nodded repeatedly. “That’s enough, that’s enough. It’s getting late. I’ll take my leave first. Goodbye, Your Highness.”
As she spoke, she ran far away.
That posture didn’t have the elegance of a young lady at all.
Instead, she looked like an energetic heroine.
Gu Zixiao was stunned and shook his head with a smile.
Two days later, Gu Nuo’er was in the state school, feeling melancholic.
This was because Elder Brother Siming hadn’t looked for her for two days!
She didn’t know what he was busy with.
Gu Nuo’er rested her pink face on her fair hands and pouted in frustration. “Elder Brother Siming, have you forgotten about Baby Nuo?”
