Gu Qingtang coughed lightly, tentatively walked to Yin Ning, gently tugged on her sleeves, and whispered: “A Ning, can we go back and settle the accounts?”


Gu Qingtang felt a chill rising from his vest. Yin Ning coldly whipped him down. If he hadn’t dodged in time, he would have left a whip shadow on his body.

“A Ning, are you serious?” Gu Qingtang only had time to say this before he was pushed hard by the madam, “Mom, how can you do this?”


The back door was hurriedly closed by the Madam, and she only heard the Madam say, “I still have business here, Prince Consort, please don’t settle the accounts between you and your husband here with me!”

“I…” Gu Qingtang turned around and forced a smile, “Aning, no! Princess, please let me explain?”

Yin Ning turned pale with anger. She tightened her riding whip and said coldly: “What other explanation do you have?”

Gu Qingtang looked at the people watching in the distance, took a breath of embarrassment, lowered his head pretending to be sad, took out the half-tied knot from his arms, and said with three points of grievance, ” I came here today…not to…drink wine…but…to ask Miss Mingyue to teach me how to tie knots…”

“Are you a grown man learning to tie knots?” Yin Ning was startled and glanced at the knot in Gu Qingtang’s hand suspiciously, “Why did you suddenly learn this?”

Gu Qingtang looked at Yin Ning seriously, nodded and said: “I asked Sister Huang today, and she said that you loved knotting when you were a child. If I could tie one with my own hands and give it to you, you would be happy.”

“…” Yin Ning fell silent for a moment. Did she really blame him wrongly?

Gu Qingtang breathed a sigh of relief quietly and said with a smile: “Princess, for the sake of my hard work, just spare me once, okay?”

“Slow down!” Yin Ning suddenly raised his head and looked at her, “There are many vendors on the street who also know how to tie knots. Why don’t you invite one to come to Prince Consort Middle School? Why don’t you come to Chunfeng Tower to find a girl to learn from? ?”

The smile on Gu Qingtang’s face froze, “Because… because… Miss Mingyue’s craftsmanship is so good! To learn something, you need to find a good master.”

“Miss Mingyue?” Yin Ning felt sour for no reason and glared at her, “Is that just that?”

Gu Qingtang quickly swore to the sky, “Everything is true! Miss Mingyue, you have also seen her. She is the girl who delivered the letter in front of the Prince Consort’s Mansion when Xiao Wu got into trouble last time…” As she said that, He quickly added, “She is just a maid from Chunfeng Tower, not the top girl. If I really came here to have fun, how could I find a maid?”

Gu Qingtang’s words were so perfect that Yin Ning couldn’t find a flaw for a while. She thought for a while, “Then since it’s just a matter of learning skills, why did you sneak away through the back door?”

“Mom said you brought an army to sweep the building. She was worried that you would make a big fuss in the front hall and disturb her business, so she dragged me out of the back door…” As he said this, Gu Qingtang felt that he Why was he always at a disadvantage, so he quickly asked, “Huh? Why doesn’t the princess come to find me from the main entrance?”

“I…” Yin Ning couldn’t say for a moment. Today it was a little beggar who came to report the letter. It was also the little beggar who told her that the prince-in-law would definitely escape through the back door.

Gu Qingtang pretended to be serious and thought for a while, then said in a deep voice: “A Ning, I think this is a bit weird. Why did I enter Chunfeng Tower just before I entered the building, and then you came to kill me? It seems like someone is deliberately trying to provoke you. The love between my husband and wife, tsk tsk, An Ning, you must not fall into the trap!” She took Yin Ning’s hand and stuffed half of the knot into their palms, saying softly, “But It’s my fault today, An-Ning, can you spare me a moment? Why don’t you go back to your home and teach me how to tie this unfinished knot?”

Why are you being held by this annoying guy again?

The moment Yin Ning realized the result, she clearly saw the secret smile of the guard next to her. She felt her cheeks burning quietly, and the riding crop in her other hand pressed against Gu Qingtang’s heart unwillingly. “Wait a minute! Do you think I will believe you if you say a few sweet words?”

Gu Qingtang smiled warmly, “Then how can the princess be willing to trust me?”

“Miss Mingyue, right?”


“I would like to see how well this Mingyue girl ties knots?”


“Follow me to the Chunfeng Tower from the main entrance and meet the Mingyue girl for a while!” Yin Ning held the knot tightly in her hands, turned back and smiled proudly at Gu Qingtang, “If I let me know what you said You’re lying, Gu Qingtang, I will never spare you!”

This time, Gu Qingtang, I want you to know that I am not someone to be trifled with!

Yin Ning turned around and smiled faintly, feeling extremely happy in her heart. When she thought of the way Gu Qingtang lowered his head to admit his mistake just now, the warmth in his heart rose, and the anger in his heart had long since disappeared.

“A Ning…” Gu Qingtang’s warm fingers suddenly stretched out, and she quietly covered the back of her hand. He smiled at her, leaned towards her face, and asked in a low voice, “Is your stomach okay?” Uncomfortable?”

Yin Ning realized what Gu Qingtang meant, and immediately glared at Gu Qingtang, “You are so embarrassed, why are you asking me this?”

“I’m afraid you’ll be in pain.” Gu Qingtang glanced at her lower abdomen and said with a soft smile, “I’ll go back to the Prince Consort’s Mansion later and I’ll make you a bowl of brown sugar water. Drink it and then rest. But Good?”


“Don’t get angry, it will hurt your body. I don’t want my Aning…”

“Who is your Aning!”

“Okay, my princess is so angry.”

“Who is your princess!”


Gu Qingtang pursed his lips and smiled tenderly. Standing under the plaque of Chunfeng Tower, he seemed to be infected with the spring breeze of March, making people feel warm when they see him and happy to see him again.

Why is this annoying guy so considerate?

Yin Ning was angry in her heart, but it was very helpful. She suppressed her smile and glared at Gu Qingtang coldly, “Smooth talk, I will cut out your tongue sooner or later!”

“Princess, just don’t gouge out my eyes!”


“I’m afraid I won’t be able to see you anymore,” Gu Qingtang smiled softly and looked into the Chunfeng Pavilion. “There’s no point in me being here.”

It was clearly a word of love, but Yin Ning heard a hint of sadness in this word of love. She looked at Gu Qingtang’s side face blankly and said angrily: “You are so glib again! Be careful of me, even your wife.” My eyes were gouged out!”

“Haha.” Gu Qingtang arched his eyebrows and smiled, bowed his hands to Yin Ning, “A Ning, spare your life, spare your life.”

Yin Ning couldn’t help but laugh and said, “You know you were wrong. I will spare your life.”

The old madam who had just returned to the lobby caught a glimpse of Gu Qingtang and Yin Ning walking in from the front door again. He thought that he couldn’t see these two quarreling couples away today, so he smiled bitterly and greeted her. He said: “Prince Consort, Your Highness the Princess, the shop is a small business, please let the common people go.”

Gu Qingtang smiled and said: “Mom, don’t be afraid, the princess just wants to meet Miss Mingyue.”

The madam was stunned for a moment, “Meet Miss Mingyue?”

Seeing the princess and the consort standing side by side in the lobby of Chunfeng Tower, many officials quickly huddled behind the screen, preparing to watch a good show.

I have long heard that the little princess is very coquettish towards the prince-in-law. Today, he mobilized a large number of troops and personally led the palace guards to get him. It seems that Gu Shaofu will have something good to eat tonight.

Gu Qingtang nodded and said: “Yes, she is the Mingyue girl who serves Miss Liu.”

The madam was stunned again, “She is just a maid. Why would a princess with a rich body want to meet a servant?”

“What if the person I want to see is a servant?” Yin Ning glared at the madam displeased, “Just go and invite him.”

“Yes! Yes!” The old madam had no choice but to give a wink to the maid in the hall and told her to find Mingyue. She bent down and led Yin Ning and Gu Qingtang to sit in the wing on the second floor, “Here comes someone. , good wine and good food are waiting for you!”

“Yes, Mom!”

“You can go back to the house first. I am here, and the princess will be fine.” Gu Qingtang waved his hand to the guards to go back to the house first, so as not to disturb the normal business of Chunfeng Tower due to Lin Li outside the hall.

Yin Ning nodded in acquiescence.

The guards turned around and walked neatly towards the Prince Consort’s Mansion. Gu Qingtang could finally breathe a sigh of relief, sat down holding Yin Ning’s sleeves, and gave the Madam a wink, “Mom, go out and do your work first.”

“Okay.” The madam exited the room and closed the door.

Yin Ning looked around at the furnishings in the wing, which were very elegant. She couldn’t help but praise: “No wonder many dignitaries from the capital love to come here. These antiques, calligraphy and paintings also have some charm.”

Gu Qingtang cocked his head and looked at Yin Ning quietly, without speaking to her.

Yin Ning turned around and met Gu Qingtang’s burning gaze, and asked in a deep voice: “What…are you staring at me for?” Her cheeks were burning again because of Gu Qingtang’s gaze, and she suddenly found that there was only one person in the wing. She and Gu Qingtang were left alone, and a sense of shyness began to creep into her heart silently.

Gu Qingtang smiled and said nothing.

“Gu Qingtang! If you keep doing this, I will…”

When Gu Qingtang’s left hand covered the side of Yin Ning’s face, Yin Ning instantly forgot what to say next – his fingertips went into her hair, and Gu Qingtang gently held her cheek and gradually came closer to her face.


“Aning, I suddenly feel that you are getting more and more beautiful…”

Gu Qingtang’s breath is so close. The best love words in the world are the praises of the one you love. From the moment Yin Ning found these words pleasant, she suddenly realized that this annoying ghost Gu Qingtang seemed to have sneaked into her. Her heart could easily tickle her heartstrings, making her heartbeat beat again and again.

Yin Ning was shocked to realize that something was wrapped around her little finger. She looked down at her little finger in panic, but she just managed to pull the untied knot free.

Gu Qingtang carefully wrapped the other end of the red string around his little finger and said with a smile: “An Ning, you and I are a couple who worship heaven and earth. Now that we are tied by a red string, I won’t allow you to leave. Me!” After saying that, she moved her little finger.


“Just because you…like me…”

“Nonsense! I don’t…well…”

The moment Gu Qingtang kissed Yin Ning’s lips and tongue “badly”, Yin Ning found that the hands pushing Gu Qingtang couldn’t use even half of their strength——

A thought that she didn’t dare to admit suddenly came to her mind. Could it be that she was going to fall into the hands of this sycophant in this life?
