When the moon rises above the willow trees again, it’s time for the Princess Consort to go to bed.

After the maids made the wedding bed, they bowed respectfully to the dark-faced Yin Ning and said, “Princess, please have a rest, princess.”

Yin Ning asked reluctantly: “Can’t I sleep alone?”

Xiao Xi shook her head in embarrassment, “Princess, this… this is the law… the princess and her consort must sleep together for the first three days of their marriage.” As she said that, Xiao Xi glanced at Gu Qingtang secretly, “Unless …Unless the prince-in-law is feeling unwell…”

Gu Qingtang stretched and said with a smile: “It should be okay tonight.”

“Haha, please let the princess have a rest.” The maids heard the deep meaning of the word “okay”, blushed with embarrassment, bowed to Yin Ning again, bowed their heads and quickly exited the wedding palace.


Xidian’s door was closed by Xiao Xi, and a string of maids’ chuckles sounded outside the palace, making Yin Ning in the palace feel extremely ashamed.


When Gu Qingtang’s voice sounded, Yin Ning tightened her collar vigilantly and glared at her, “What do you want to do?”

Gu Qingtang leaned closer to Yin Ning and smiled: “Of course I sleep with the princess.”


“There is no such thing as ‘shame’ between husband and wife. The princess is right.” Gu Qingtang smiled happily, and Yin Ning could only wish to kick her away.

“Gu Qingtang, I’m warning you, if you take one step closer, I will die here immediately!”

Gu Qingtang’s smile weakened by three points, and he nodded slightly: “Princess, am I so hateful?”

Yin Ning looked at Gu Qingtang with red eyes, “Not only is he disgusting, he is also… a disaster!”

“Huh, a disaster?” Gu Qingtang smiled mockingly, “Maybe I am really a disaster.” Suddenly, he thought deeply, “If the princess dies on the wedding bed tonight, a rumor will probably appear in the public tomorrow, saying I was so in love with the princess that I tortured her to death, tsk tsk, how could this be good?”

“You…” Yin Ning was ashamed and angry, and finally couldn’t help but kick Gu Qingtang with his leg, forgetting that he injured his knee at noon, “How reckless!”

Gu Qingtang hugged her legs with one hand and her small waist with the other, smiling and saying: “Princess, don’t be excited. To be honest, if you have any shortcomings, you will be sad after all.” Your Majesty!”

Brother Huang…

Yin Ning was slightly startled, her gaze lowered, staring at Gu Qingtang’s lower abdomen, and a tragic idea suddenly came to her mind – first seduce this sycophant, and then take the opportunity to kill his descendants!

The current posture of the consort and the princess was already very ambiguous. When Yin Ning had thought about this idea, he suddenly hooked his arms around Gu Qingtang’s neck. His watery eyes looked at Gu Qingtang, with a reluctant expression on his face. He gave a stiff smile, “Don’t you just want me? I will fulfill your wish today!”

A hint of shock flashed across Gu Qingtang’s eyes, but he didn’t know how to answer Yin Ning’s words.

“Why don’t you speak? Huh?” Yin Ning took the initiative to approach Gu Qingtang. Her heart was beating more and more panicked, not knowing whether it was because of nervousness or anger, “Gu Qingtang, I want to let you You succeeded, what are you still doing?” As he spoke, his fingers quietly rubbed back and forth on Gu Qingtang’s neck, scratching him to the point of confusion.

Yin Ning clearly saw two blushes staining Gu Qingtang’s cheeks. She felt that the blushing woman was a little more handsome than in the day. Her heart skipped a beat. She saw a person with the same cheeks in her eyes. Burning self.

Don’t be upset! Don’t be upset!

Yin Ning quickly avoided Gu Qingtang’s gaze, but was suddenly pushed down on the wedding bed by Gu Qingtang. Before she could react, Gu Qingtang had already freed her arms.

“Ahem, I seem to have caught a cold today, which may infect the princess. Let’s sleep in separate rooms tonight.” Gu Qingtang’s voice was panicked. She straightened up quickly, took several steps back, and then turned around He turned around and almost ran away from the Xidian Palace.

Why didn’t it go as expected?

Yin Ning sat up in frustration, looked at Gu Qingtang’s somewhat flustered back, gritted her teeth and said, “You can run fast!” After saying that, she thought for a moment and shouted loudly, “Xiao Xi! ”

“Princess, the servant is here.” Xiao Xi, who was waiting outside the palace, was still surprised by the sudden departure of the consort. Suddenly, she heard the princess’s call and ran into the wedding palace quickly.

Yin Ning smelled her fingers and said disgustedly: “Go and prepare hot water for me.”

“Princess wants to take a bath again?”

“Being with that shameless man every day, even washing twice a day is not enough!”


Xiao Xi quickly retreated.

At this time, Gu Qingtang was walking leisurely in the courtyard, and the heat in his cheeks finally faded away.

“Aning, you taste so delicious, it really makes my heart feel uncomfortable.” Gu Qingtang laughed dumbly and suddenly murmured, “If I told you that I was the little beggar eight years ago…”


There was a sudden sound of clothes breaking through the air on the eaves. Gu Qingtang followed the sound warily, but saw a man in black standing on the eaves, holding a knife and looking steadily at this side.

“Haha, are you here to take my life again?” Gu Qingtang laughed.

“Dog officer!” The man in black cursed in a low voice, then flew down from the eaves and struck Gu Qingtang with a knife.

Gu Qingtang turned around and hid beside the rockery. He suddenly pulled a rope hidden behind the rockery. When a silver bell rang behind the rockery, it caused the silver bells everywhere to ring together.

“There is an assassin!”

Outside the small courtyard, a guard suddenly shouted in surprise, and with the sound of armor, he rushed towards this direction quickly.

Gu Qingtang smiled slightly and dodged the man in black’s knife again, “You can’t kill me. If you don’t want to die in vain, just leave.”

The man in black said bitterly: “Guan Guan! Do you know how many people have been separated from their wives because of you? I want you to have a taste of this today!”

“What did you say?” Gu Qingtang’s face darkened.

The man in black turned around and flew up to the corner of the eaves, running quickly towards the wedding palace where the princess was.

“Not good!” Gu Qingtang panicked, turned around and ran back towards Xidian.


“The assassin’s target is the princess, come with me!”

Gu Qingtang gave a hurried order and saw the man in black rushing down from the wedding hall. The maids waiting at the door were so surprised that they exclaimed, “Who are you?!”


Gu Qingtang suddenly pulled out the waist knife of the guard beside him and threw it towards the man in black.

The man in black turned around and tried to break in, but Gu Qingtang had already ordered: “Fire the arrow!”

The maids hurriedly hid behind the pillars with their heads in their hands, shivering.


After the sound of a string of bowstrings, the man in black was forced into a corner by flying arrows. He was about to break through the door, but realized that he had lost his chance tonight, so he had to fly up to the eaves, preparing to escape.


“No need, the princess’s safety is the most important thing!” Gu Qingtang signaled the guards not to chase that person, “Be on guard tonight.” After saying that, he walked to the wedding palace worriedly.

“Consort…” Xiao Xi was so frightened that her voice trembled.

“It’s okay, don’t be afraid.” Gu Qingtang smiled at the maids.


The palace door was pushed open, and Gu Qingtang strode in. Xiao Xi quickly closed the palace door. Gu Qingtang asked in surprise, “Xiao Xi, what are you doing?”

Xiao Xi calmed down and quickly replied: “The princess is taking a bath inside…”

“Bath…” Gu Qingtang felt his mind wandering, and walked towards the bathtub behind the screen with a smile.


Bubbles kept rising from the bottom of the water. Gu Qingtang stood by the basin and felt it was funny. The dignified little princess Daling heard that there was an assassin outside, but she held her breath and hid in the bathtub.

“Princess, the assassin has left. It’s okay. Come out quickly. If you are holding it back…”


Yin Ning held a bath towel to cover her chest, suddenly got out of the tub, and spat out a mouthful of warm water.

Gu Qingtang hurriedly jumped to the side to avoid the mouthful of warm water, but was stunned for a moment, his heart beating in panic.

At this moment, the little princess’s green hair hung wetly on her chest, and the bath towel was soaked, but it became very transparent… So… a pair of spring peaches… ahem… just like this, loomingly exposed to Gu Qingtang in sight.

Gu Qingtang couldn’t help but swallowed, and subconsciously wanted to look away from the pair of spring peaches, but for some reason, at this moment, all he could see were the two touches of vermilion on the tips of the spring peaches, and he couldn’t help but murmured something , “Princess, I seem a little… hungry…”

“Ah——!” Yin Ning originally thought that she could cover her body with a bath towel, but she didn’t expect such a result. She just heard her scream, her eyes red with shock, anger and shame, and she said viciously He cursed at Gu Qingtang, “Presumptuous! Shameless! Gu Qingtang, you bully me! I want to kill your nine tribes! Kill your nine tribes!”

Gu Qingtang only felt that he was wronged and said innocently: “The princess stood up from the water by herself just now, but I was one step away from the princess. This is simply the most extraordinary injustice of all time!”

“I don’t care! I want to kill you! The Nine! Clan!” Yin Ning felt her nose sore and tears rolled down her face. She just wanted to dig out Gu Qingtang’s eyes right away.

Gu Qingtang whispered: “Then can I ask the princess to spare someone?”

“Not one of them!”

“Isn’t it okay to spare you?” Gu Qingtang’s voice suddenly became serious, “The princess is also in my nine clans.”

Yin Ning never expected that Gu Qingtang would say such a sentence so seriously. For some reason, half of the anger in his heart dissipated, and his shame became stronger than before.

“It’s my fault tonight. Princess, you should get dressed quickly.” She was surprised to find a bath towel falling on her shoulders. Yin Ning subconsciously slapped Gu Qingtang’s hand. She turned around and wanted to scold her again. But he saw the consort closing his eyes tightly and letting go of his hand. He quickly turned his back and said, “I didn’t see anything. I’ll go out right now.” After saying that, Gu Qingtang didn’t seem to have realized what he was doing. He ran and bumped into someone. He stood on the edge of the screen, took a breath in pain, and staggered out of the wedding hall.

“Gu Qingtang, don’t think that today’s debt is over like this!” Yin Ning sniffed and couldn’t help but cursed in a low voice, “The days are long, just wait!”
