Three days after the wedding of the princess and the consort, as a rule, the princess must return to peace.

So, early in the morning, the little princess got up to wash up, put on a beautiful dress, and waited for the prince-in-law to be ready, and then went into the palace to meet the new emperor and the Queen Mother Nian.

In fact, the new emperor Yin Changan was not the prince, and the Queen Mother Nian was not Yin Changan’s biological mother. The Queen Mother Nian actually had a son, Her Royal Highness the Crown Prince. Yin Changan’s mother-in-law died early, so she was raised by the Queen Mother. Huh? Why didn’t the prince succeed to the throne? Speaking of which, this matter was a reminder for the late emperor, because the prince died before the old emperor even before he could succeed to the throne. So the old emperor also became seriously ill, and it took two years before he left.

The cause of death is still unclear, but the person who benefited most from the death of the prince was the second prince. At that time, he was a wise prince praised by everyone among the ministers, and his reputation was very high.

The old emperor had three sons and two daughters, the eldest princess, the second prince, the prince, Yin Changan, and the little princess. When the prince dies, according to law, the elder takes precedence, so the second prince is almost certain that he will ascend the throne of the emperor. However, he is too young after all, and being too young means that he is too innocent.

How could the Queen Mother Nian allow a prince whose biological mother was still alive to ascend the throne? Let there be one more queen mother in the palace?

And this Queen Mother Nian, yes, you read that right, her surname is Nian. Her younger brother is the most powerful official today, Taiwei Nian. How could he let the second prince sit on the throne like this?

So, the second prince fell ill for no apparent reason before this year and became paralyzed. In the end, the throne fell to the fourth prince Yin Changan.

Looking carefully, the Nian family is really prominent. The eldest princess is Taiwei Nian’s daughter-in-law, today’s emperor is Taiwei Nian’s nephew, and the little princess is now the wife of Taiwei’s adopted son. As long as the ministers think about it, they will feel that there is no difference between the Taiwei Mansion and the court.

It seems that I have said a bit too much, well, let’s get back to the story.

Gu Qingtang got up earlier than the little princess every day, but today she was a little frightened, because she got up and just opened the small window, and saw Qin Zhongyu standing in the window like a stone.

“Benefactor!”

Gu Qingtang looked at a vicissitudes of life Hanzhi who suddenly knelt down with red eyes, unable to react for a moment.

Qin Zhongyu tried his best to lower his voice, “My lord, I wrongly blamed you before! Please keep me by your side to protect you from now on!”

Gu Qingtang calmed down and smiled bitterly: “General Qin, are you asking me to play with you with my head? I secretly left Mrs. Ling to take care of me in the capital. It was already scary enough. You were more popular than me three years ago. General Lin, do you think no one in the capital recognizes you?”

Qin Zhongyu shook his head repeatedly and said: “The prince-in-law misunderstood, I meant to be his shadow guard and protect him secretly.”

Gu Qingtang thought for a while, “How about this? You don’t have to follow me when I’m in the Shaofu Prison, the Imperial Palace, or the Prince Consort’s Mansion. If I take a walk on the street, you can protect me secretly.”

Qin Zhongyu was overjoyed and said, “Okay!”

Gu Qingtang said seriously: “I am in the Prince Consort’s Mansion now, and I will go to the palace soon, so I won’t need General Qin today…”

“I understand!”

Before Gu Qingtang finished speaking, Qin Zhongyu had already flown up to the eaves and disappeared from Gu Qingtang’s sight.

Gu Qingtang rubbed his temples helplessly, knowing that this would be the result, so he did not dare to let the couple meet in advance, but if they were not allowed to meet again, the little princess would be in danger, so let’s take one step first and then count the steps. .

After all this trouble, by the time Gu Qingtang changed into a clean official uniform with white background and blue patterns, it seemed a little late.

“Princess, I got up a little late today, haha, I’m late, I’m late!” When Gu Qingtang walked into the wedding hall holding a small bun and chewing it, what he saw was the cold expression of the little princess. Face, “Huh? Who made my princess angry?”

“Gu Qingtang, Ah Zhong got up earlier than you today!” Yin Ning stroked the little black dog in her arms, “If every court official was like you…”

“Princess, you must not have had breakfast. Do you want to have some buns too?” Gu Qingtang suddenly smiled and asked with some meaning in his words.

“You!” How could Yin Ning not understand the meaning of her words? Her cheeks immediately turned red and she glared at Gu Qingtang angrily, “How dare you mention this?”

Gu Qingtang shook his head innocently, “I heard that the princess had an amazing appetite yesterday and ate a whole basket of buns. Tsk, tsk, I thought they must be delicious, so I ordered someone to make buns for breakfast. “As he said that, he looked at Yin Ning with his smiling eyes, deliberately ate the remaining buns in one bite, and murmured, “It’s just a little small…”

“Gu Qingtang, what are you saying is a bit too small?” Yin Ning angrily handed the little black dog to Xiao Xi’s hand and walked up to Gu Qingtang, “Shameless!”

The pear vortex swirled slightly, and Gu Qingtang gave a bitter smile, “I was talking about the buns being a bit small. The princess thought I was talking about…” His eyes quietly glanced down, “The ones from the night before…”

“You!” Yin Ning’s face turned even redder, and she raised her hand to slap Gu Qingtang.

Gu Qingtang took the opportunity to hold her raised hand and pulled her into his arms, “Princess, it’s time for us to enter the palace. The sun is already so high. If we continue to flirt like this, Your Majesty I’m going to be unhappy with the Queen Mother.”

Yin Ning wanted to twist out of Gu Qingtang’s arms, “Let me go!” She suddenly caught sight of Gu Qingtang’s new official boots, gritted her teeth, and stepped on her feet.

“Hiss——!”

Gu Qingtang took a breath and had to let go of Yin Ning.

Yin Ning laughed triumphantly, “Hey, let’s see if you still dare to bully me!” After saying that, she turned around and walked out of the wedding hall first, “Xiao Xi, follow me quickly.”

Xiao Xi glanced at Gu Qingtang sympathetically, “Consort…”

Gu Qingtang sat on a chair and rubbed the painful area where he was stepped on, and said with a smile: “It doesn’t matter, it’s worth stepping on her to make her smile. You can help the princess get into the carriage first.”

“Yes.” Xiao Xi was so moved that she had no choice but to hug the little black dog and quickly chase the princess.

Gu Qingtang eased his pain, stood up, and staggered out of the wedding hall——

“Princess…” Xiao Xi chased after the princess and called out hesitantly, but did not finish her words.

Yin Ning suddenly stopped and glanced at Xiao Xi, “Can Gu Qingtang still leave?”

Xiao Xi nodded sadly and looked back at the prince-in-law who was hobbling behind, “I can walk, but… I seem to be a little lame…”

Why do you feel guilty?

Yin Ning glanced back secretly, then turned her face again, feeling her heart beat suddenly faster, “Who told him to always offend me? He deserves it!”

Xiao Xi shook her head, “Princess, if the Queen Mother sees the consort walking like this and asks the princess, how will the princess answer?”

Yin Ning suddenly thought of what Gu Qingtang once said – my terrible adoptive father couldn’t help but stand up for me. When the time comes, it will be you, the princess, who will be punished, and it will be your Majesty who will be sad.

The adoptive father is Taiwei Nian, and the Queen Mother is Taiwei Nian’s sister… This… even if I want to deal with this shameless consort… I have to do it secretly. I am really too impulsive today.

The feeling of guilt seemed to be deeper. Yin Ning lowered his head and glanced at the little black dog in Xiao Xi’s arms, and said helplessly: “Zhong, I should be more patient. Maybe Gu Qingtang is deliberately irritating me. I just want to embarrass my brother, but I can’t let him get his wish, right?”

Xiao Xi couldn’t understand, “Princess, what are you talking about?”

Yin Ning took a deep breath and said, “Xiao Xi, take Azhong into the carriage first.”

Xiao Xi nodded, “Yes.” But after walking a few steps, she couldn’t help but look back at the princess, and saw Yin Ning walking straight towards Gu Qingtang.

“Zhong, actually the princess likes the Prince Consort, right?” Xiao Xi lowered her head and said to the little black dog, then walked towards the gate of Prince Consort’s Mansion with a smile.

“Princess?” Obviously, Gu Qingtang was a little surprised when the little princess suddenly turned around to support her.

Yin Ning said seriously: “Don’t be complacent. I am willing to help you, but I just don’t want the Queen Mother to blame me for being ignorant.”

“Yes.” Gu Qingtang smiled very gently, “It’s all good if the princess has her heart.”

The voice was like water, with a hint of warmth in the gentleness. Yin Ning suddenly felt that the prince-in-law’s voice was actually quite nice, but the regret in his heart emerged again – why did he have to be Taiwei Nian’s adopted son? The Taiwei’s money-making tool back then? !

The Shaofu Supervisor is the official government agency in charge of taxation for each state in the Daling Kingdom. The Shaofu is the largest official in the government. Gu Qingtang is now the Master of the Shaofu, and is undoubtedly the biggest accomplice of Nian Taiwei in amassing wealth.

Taxes were collected from the people, but when they arrived at the Shaofu Prison, they were not paid directly into the state treasury. Instead, several percent of the money was taken into Taiwei Nian’s private treasury, so even less was used for the people in the end.

“Are you serious about it?” Yin Ning asked suddenly, her watery eyes fixed on Gu Qingtang. This was the first time since she married into the Prince Consort’s house that she had looked at Gu Qingtang so quietly, “A heart of conscience. ”

Gu Qingtang was startled, then looked at Yin Ning with a smile, “I must have intentions.”

Yin Ning saw that she was laughing and laughing, but she was not as serious as she was, so she couldn’t help but said: “I see you only have a wolf heart, a wolf heart of wolf ambition!”

Gu Qingtang shook his head gently, “Princess, there is a saying that, after a long time, we can see people’s hearts. Am I a wolf-hearted or a conscience? Princess, why don’t you judge in the future?”

“You…” Yin Ning raised her eyes, and what was reflected in her eyes was a pair of shallow pear dimples on Gu Qingtang’s cheeks. Her heart skipped a beat, and Yin Ning had to admit a fact.

Gu Qingtang… is really good-looking…

Quietly, Yin Ning noticed that Gu Qingtang’s fair face was gradually turning red——

Why… why do you feel happy?

Just when the little princess’s heart was filled with ripples, Yin Ning heard the consort say something.

“Next year’s spring peaches will definitely be bigger than this year’s, and they will definitely taste better than this year’s!”

“Gu Qingtang! What did you say?!”

“I’m obviously talking about peaches! Peaches! Hiss—princess, please be merciful!”

“Do you think I am really that easy to bully?! Are you finally willing to beg for mercy this time? Humph!”

A bright smile bloomed on Yin Ning’s face and fell into Gu Qingtang’s eyes. In fact, the moment Yin Ning turned around to support her, Gu Qingtang had already said softly in his heart, “My heart is full. There is a person on the ground, and that person’s name is Aning.”
