The closer to the Dragon Boat Festival, the hotter the weather becomes.

Although the pear blossoms in the Prince Consort’s Mansion have all faded, the lotus flowers in the pond are blooming brilliantly. The lotus pond pavilion in the back garden has become the favorite summer resort of the little princess Yin Ning.

A-Zhong had been weaned from breastfeeding, and his body was very shiny with black fur. When he saw Yin Ning in the small pavilion from a distance, he ran over happily wagging his little tail.

“Zhong, be good!” Yin Ning liked this cute little black dog more and more. She gave Azhong a snack, and Azhong let out a clear “woof” happily.

Xiao Xi gave Yin Ning a new cup of tea and said with a smile: “Princess, try this cup of tea.”

Yin Ning picked up the tea cup, took a sip of tea aroma, and asked suspiciously: “Is there anything strange about this tea?”

Xiao Xi nodded, “My Prince Consort has been getting up before dawn these days to collect the dew. It took a lot of effort to collect enough dew for this cup of tea.”

“No wonder he has disappeared early in the morning these days.” A doubt in Yin Ning’s heart was solved, “I thought he was diligent in official duties these days, but I didn’t expect that he was still… not doing his job properly!”

Xiao Xi couldn’t help but reply, “Princess, I feel that the Prince Consort is really interested in you…”

“Really?” Yin Ning asked casually, but her heart was filled with joy, “Then tell me, what other things has he done to please me?”

Xiao Xi thought about it carefully, counted the numbers on her fingers, and whispered: “The first thing is that on the Qingming Festival, the prince-in-law specially gave alms to the people. Isn’t the princess very happy to see it?”

“Well, count it as one thing.” Yin Ning took a sip of the warm tea and felt that it was sweet and delicious. It was indeed much more fragrant than the cup just now, and a smile appeared at the corner of her mouth involuntarily.

Xiao Xi caught a glimpse of the smile on the princess’s face, and the fear in her heart dissipated by a third, and her voice became slightly louder, “Second thing, doesn’t Mr. Nian always like to run to Chunfeng Tower? The princess always said, The eldest princess felt wronged to marry Mr. Nian, so…” Xiao Xi hesitated for a moment, but decided to tell the matter, “Three days ago, the prince-in-law secretly put some croton powder in Mr. Nian’s tea, which harmed Nian. The young master has been pulling for a whole half day.”

“Haha, he deserves it!” Yin Ning said with a smile, and realized something was wrong. Her face darkened and she looked at Xiao Xi, “Why do you know this?”

Xiao Xi quickly knelt down and replied: “The Prince Consort said that the weather is really hot these days, which makes people easily irritable. If you see the princess is unhappy, tell her about it, and the princess will definitely feel relieved. “Xiao Xi secretly glanced up at Yin Ning’s face, then lowered her head hurriedly, “The prince-in-law also said that once this person is happy, he will naturally look better.”

“Glib tongue!” Yin Ning couldn’t help but laugh, but was afraid of letting Xiao Xi see it, so she quickly stood up and turned away, pretending to look at the lotus flowers in the distance, and said in a deep voice, “This is just one thing, is there anything else? ?”

Xiao Xi secretly breathed a sigh of relief, shook her head and said: “Originally, there is one more thing today. The prince-in-law said that when he comes back, he will personally give you a surprise for the princess. But just now he sent someone back to report that today’s carriage will bring an envoy. Here we are, your majesty is hosting a banquet for distinguished guests in the imperial city. I’m afraid I won’t be able to come back to have dinner with the princess tonight.”

Yin Ning turned around with some disappointment and murmured, “I… don’t care about his company…”

“Princess!”

The voice of a maid suddenly sounded in the distance. The maid lowered her head and walked quickly outside the pavilion. She bowed respectfully to Yin Ning and said, “Princess Qi, the Eighth Eunuch has come to deliver the message in person. Your Majesty invites you.” You enter the palace and feast with the distinguished guests.”

“Invite me?” Yin Ning felt that it was a bit unusual. If she had not yet married Gu Qingtang, and she was invited to attend the state banquet, it was probably to let the envoys from the carriage take a look at her appearance, so that she could become a candidate for marriage. about. However, now that she is a married woman, how can she attend the state banquet?

The maid nodded solemnly, “Yes, His Majesty personally issued the edict, not an oral instruction.”

You actually used the imperial edict? Are you still afraid that she won’t go?

The more Yin Ning thought about this matter, the more strange it became, but she didn’t want to delay it. She turned back to Xiao Xi and said: “Xiao Xi, follow me back to change clothes quickly.”

“Yes.”

His Majesty Yin Chang’an was really thoughtful. When Yin Ning changed into a phoenix-patterned court uniform and arrived in front of the Prince Consort’s Mansion, the Eighth Eunuch had already been waiting in front of the carriage for a long time.

“Eight-cent meeting, princess.” Eight-cent father-in-law bowed respectfully to the little princess, and personally put down the stepping stones beside the carriage, “I respectfully invite you to get on the carriage, princess.”

Xiao Xi helped Yin Ning get on the carriage, and after the people removed the stepping stones, she sat next to the coachman and urged the coachman to drive towards the imperial city.

The cart is outside the southern border of Daling. It governs either deserts or oases. The people are martial and everyone is brave.

This time, two princes were suddenly sent to Daling, which made all the forces in Daling unable to help but speculate on their intentions. Moreover, the eldest prince Antu has always been at odds with the third prince Anba. This time, the two of them were sent as envoys at the same time, which made it even more difficult to guess the intention of the Khan.

At this time, the state banquet was in full swing. Yin Changan sat on the dragon chair and drank quietly. The Queen Mother Nian beside him was more like a king of a country, urging the two princes to drink from time to time.

Lieutenant Nian raised a glass to the third prince Anba and said with a smile: “I have always heard that the third prince of Dache is very brave. He once killed more than ten wolves in one night. It is really amazing. Come on, I Here’s to you!”

Anba raised his head proudly, patted the animal armor, and laughed loudly: “Drink!”

The eldest prince Antu glanced at Anba coldly, raised his glass and paid tribute to Yin Changan, “Your Majesty, the little king proposes a glass to you!”

Yin Changan subconsciously looked at the Queen Mother Nian, and after her acquiescence, he raised his glass and said with a smile: “My eldest prince, I also respect you!”

Gu Qingtang watched them quietly as they divided into formations. It was obvious that the third prince was a powerful force secretly attracted by his adoptive father Nian Taiwei. With Anba’s heroic military exploits in the cart, he was indeed the best candidate to compete for the position of Khan. Nian Taiwei will indeed find strong candidates.

As for Antu, because he is the eldest son and is the daughter of the Khan’s first wife, he has a high reputation in the clan. The position of Khan has always acquiesced to the eldest son, so he can be regarded as the best candidate to be the future Khan. .

Gu Qingtang glanced at Antu a few more times and saw that this man was tall and tall. Although he had dark skin and beards, he could be considered a handsome man in a big car.

If the guess is correct, this Antu should be the candidate selected by Yin Changan for the little princess’s consort.

Thinking of this, Gu Qingtang felt a trace of sadness in his heart. He was secretly glad that he had acted quickly, otherwise the “lovely” little princess would have suffered in the hands of this rough man.

“Qingtang…” Lieutenant Nian suddenly turned to his face and whispered, “Now that I think about it, I’m really scared. If you hadn’t suddenly asked to marry the little princess, I’m afraid that your majesty would have used this marriage to take advantage of the situation. It’s done, you and I can no longer drink with such peace of mind.”

Gu Qingtang also whispered: “Father, I’m afraid the matter is not over yet. Your Majesty suddenly invites the princess to the banquet. I always feel a little strange.”

Nian Taiwei nodded, “I haven’t figured this out yet, so I’ll just wait and see what happens.”

Gu Qingtang responded and looked sideways at Yin Changan, but he met Yin Changan’s burning eyes. The complex meaning in those eyes made people fear for no reason.

She pretended to be calm and moved her eyes away, lowered her head and took a sip of wine, and then heard the voice of the eight-cent father-in-law from outside the palace.

“The little princess has arrived——”

Gu Qingtang stood up from the table with a smile and walked quickly towards Yin Ning.

“Meet the emperor brother and meet the queen mother.”

After Yin Ning stepped into the hall, she bowed respectfully to Yin Chang’an and the Queen Mother Nian. Gu Qingtang took her hand and she shrank. She didn’t expect that this annoying guy would dare to do this at a state banquet. presumptuous.

Gu Qingtang held her hand tighter, lowered his head and whispered, “Be careful in everything, and adapt to circumstances later.”

Yin Ning looked at her in surprise, not expecting that what Gu Qingtang was worried about was exactly the same as what she was worried about.

Yin Changan said with great joy: “Eldest Prince, this is my little imperial sister, Aning.”

An Tu glanced up and down at Yin Ning with great interest, his intense eyes making Yin Ning feel very uncomfortable.

Gu Qingtang laughed suddenly and said loudly: “The eldest prince thinks that the minister is very discerning and has married a very good-looking wife?”

An Tu said displeasedly: “Are you the little princess’s consort? You are indeed as feminine as a woman!”

Gu Qingtang just smiled softly and said, “Oh? Does the eldest prince think that I am not worthy of the little princess?”

Yin Changan quickly smoothed things over and said, “Master Gu, please don’t misunderstand the eldest prince’s intention. You are the pillar of our Daling, how could you be… not worthy of the emperor’s sister?”

An Tu smiled at Yin Ning even more boldly, “The little princess is indeed very beautiful,” he said, and glared at Gu Qingtang again, “It’s a pity that she married such a man.”

Yin Ning heard it harshly, and was even more uncomfortable by An Tu’s rude gaze. Just when she was about to speak, Gu Qingtang tugged her finger, secretly signaling her not to be impulsive.

“I am indeed a bit weak.” Gu Qingtang lowered his head and smiled, then whispered in Yin Ning’s ear, “How can I teach you a lesson?”

“Okay.” Yin Ning responded in a low voice and sat on the table with Gu Qingtang leading her. She wanted to see how this annoying guy would help her vent her anger.

Gu Qingtang filled a glass of wine for himself and saluted Antu, “First Prince, I propose a toast to you.”

Antu sneered, “Xiao Wang doesn’t want to drink.”

Gu Qingtang drank a glass of wine with a smile, filled another glass of wine, and paid tribute to the third prince Anba, “Third prince, I propose a toast to you.”

Anba, who was about to watch the show, nodded and drank the glass of wine, “Gu Shaofu is humble and polite. Xiao Wang likes people like this.”

Gu Qingtang said slowly: “Yes, there are hundreds of kinds of people and thousands of karma. The third prince has the capacity to accommodate others, and he will definitely be the best in the future.”

“Hahaha, I appreciate your good words!” Anba laughed loudly and looked at Antu, “Brother Wang, why do you look so ugly?”

An Tu suddenly threw the wine glass in his hand and shouted to Gu Qingtang: “I only respect warriors. If Gu Shaofu is a warrior, Xiao Wang will naturally respect him too!”

Gu Qingtang smiled and asked: “May I ask the eldest prince, what makes him worthy of being called a warrior?”

Antu said sternly: “Fight with me. If you beat me, I will obey you!”

“Okay! Just fight!” Gu Qingtang stood up, not afraid of Antu at all.

Yin Ning was worried. She visually checked the size difference between Gu Qingtang and An Tu. It was really huge, and she was afraid that Gu Qingtang would suffer a big loss.

Gu Qingtang lowered his head and smiled warmly at her. The pear dimple on his face was as beautiful as ever. “No one can bully you.” She paused for a moment, then her smile suddenly deepened, “Except…” The last “I” She didn’t say the word “”, she just made a mouth shape, it was more like blowing a kiss to Yin Ning.

Yin Ning’s face turned red instantly, she glared at Gu Qingtang, and secretly said in her heart, “Shameless!”
