Chapter 94: A Guide
Seeing Lord Huai coming towards them, Gu Ruxue felt her heart skipping a beat, head turning totally blank.
Was he here for her? She was the most pretty girl in the entire capital city!
So if Lord Huai suggested, she could give up the status as the Princess Consort. She believed that she could get a better man, someone noble like Lord Huai!
When Lord Huai came to her side, Gu Ruxue flushed and called with a gentle voice, “Greetings, Lord Huai!”
“Chaoyan, what are you doing here in the court.” Zhou Huaijin walked past Gu Ruxue and came to Gu Chaoyan, asking with a gentle tone.
“Princess Gu invited us, so I am here.” Gu Chaoyan answered briefly as if he were just an ordinary man.
Everyone else gasped. Gu Ruxue flushed, looking very jealous and unconvinced! How come Lord Huai was talking with that ugly girl!
And Madame Duke Changning, who had shown extreme arrogance, flushed and turned pale.
Lord Huai had just walked past them and came to greet the ugly girl! Why!
However, Lu Jiming was different. He had gotten a bit embarrassed a moment ago, but seeing Lord Huai greeting Chaoyan, he felt assured.
Since Chaoyan and Lord Huai were good friends, he could make his requirements a little less strict.
She did not have to lose too much weight. As long as she was able to speak with Lord Huai, she could marry him along with Ruxue through an excellent wedding.
As he thought of these, Lu Jiming took a few steps forward and showed a smile as if nothing had happened. “Chaoyan, you are a good friend of Lord Huai?”
He had just said the words, when both Lord Huai and Chaoyan both frowned.
The former was not so glad to hear him calling her in such a close manner, whilst the latter considered this man very cheeky!
She refused to reply to Lu Jiming.
“It is the first time for you to come to the court as a grown-up, and you may not know the way there well. Let me take you to Princess Gu!” Lord Huai said and offered himself as the guide.
The eunuch’s face twisted as he was kneeling down. Of course she did not know the road well, but the enunches were here to guide them already!
However, they only kept those words inside their hearts instead of speaking out.
Gu Chaoyan felt that Lord Huai was making sense. “Alright then, you can lead the road!”
She did not show any sign of turning him down.
Madame Gu got so many sweat drops out of nervousness. Why didn’t Chaoyan show any politeness as she was speaking with Lord Huai? She was both surprised and startled inwardly.
She was surprised because Lord Huai was offering them a great thing, and she was also startled because she did not want Gu Chaoyan to offend Lord Huai.
Lord Huai looked very glad, however. He guided Gu Chaoyan and presented her all the yards and landscapes every now and then, as if they were on a trip.
No one dared to utter a word behind them, especially Madame Gu.
It was not until they came to Biquan Palace when Madam Gu finally felt relief and joy. What an honor that Lord Huai could bring the Gu Family to Biquan Palace and show up together with them. In this way, even Princess Gu might get promoted. As she thought about this, Madame Gu got rather nervous.
The eunuch in the lead said with a raised voice, “Here comes Lord Huai!”
A chaotic panic arose in Biquan Palace, Princess Gu and Princess Virtue both came out to greet him.
However, when they saw the slightly-chubby girl next to Lord Huai, they had no clue who she was.
Lord Huai said, “Chaoyan has not been in the court for ages, I was worried that she would not find where Biquan Palace is, so I guided her here.”
Princess Gu got so startled that she could not even think for a moment.
