Gu Nuoer was carried in Gu Yihans arms, but she didnt forget to stick her head out and remind Noble Consort Qiao in a soft voice, “Mother, dont forget that Elder Brother Siming also protected Nuoer!”
Noble Consort Qiao smiled and gently scraped the tip of her nose.
“I wont forget.”
She looked at Gu Yihan.
“Ill leave the matter of rewarding Young Master Ye to Your Majesty.
Its just that this AYun… Your consort doesnt know how Your Majesty intends to deal with her.
Id like to ask for your instructions.”
Gu Yihans eyes darkened as he looked at Noble Consort Qiao.
“Theres nothing to ask.
Do whatever you think of doing.
Theres no need to report to me when dealing with such people.”
Noble Consort Qiao had made up her mind and nodded in agreement before bringing Wanxuan out with her.
Gu Yihan pinched his daughters small hand and sized her up.
“Baby Nuo, Father already told you not to go out.
“Its so dangerous outside.
Youve only gone away for a few days but you lost a lot of weight.
Theres only vegetarian food and no meat in Taishi Monastery.
My baby had been starved there.”
Gu Nuoer waved her small hands and retorted, “Father, thats not true.
The food at monk grandpas place is very delicious!”
The father and daughter went into the inner room to chat.
At this moment, the Punishment Bureaus dark underground prison gave off a damp and rotten smell.
AYun was covered in blood and was hung up on a rack.
Metal chains were pierced through her shoulder blades and blood was dripping down.
Seeing that she was about to faint, the bureaus nanny splashed salt water on her again to wake her up.
AYun woke up screaming agonizingly.
At this moment, she heard footsteps coming from the prison door.
Even now, AYun was still looking forward to seeing if the kind-hearted Empress Du would suddenly change her mind and arrange for someone to let her off.
Unexpectedly, it was Wanxuan who came.
AYuns vision was blurred by sweat and blood, but she could still see the cold expression on the head palace maid beside Noble Consort Qiao, Wanxuan.
She only heard Wanxuan say to the bureaus nanny, “Her Highness suspects that theres a mastermind behind AYun, but this b*tch is likely to be stubborn and refuses to talk.
“Shed definitely be unwilling to confess if she didnt receive some punishments.
Well have to trouble the nannies here to put more effort into this matter.”
The bureaus nanny said respectfully, “Dont worry, Miss Wanxuan.
We understand what Her Highness means.
This AYun has evil intentions and wont let her off easily.”
AYun looked at the nanny and Wanxuan and kept struggling and trembling.
Even though her mouth was stuffed with a cloth, she still tried to cry for help.
At this point, she understood that Noble Consort Qiao wasnt trying to find out who was themastermind behind her.
The noble consort just wanted to find a good excuse to make her suffer!
Wanxuan looked at her with a bone-chilling gaze, as if she was looking at a dead person.
The next afternoon, AYun couldnt stand the torture and died in the prison.
When Noble Consort Qiao heard this news, she only took a sip of tea calmly.
She looked down the corridor and saw the adorable-looking Gu Nuoer playing with the little white tiger.
“I still overestimated AYun.
I thought she would be able to last for two days.”
Wanxuan pursed her lips and felt that her anger wasnt vented.
“Shes been let off easily to be able to die like this considering how she dared to have designs on the little princess”
Wanyin walked into the courtyard with tea.
When she passed by Gu Nuoer, she heard the little princess say softly toward a spot where there wasnt anyone—
“AYun has already been executed.
Ive also given her the retribution she deserves.
You can be assured and leave now!”
Wanyin looked puzzled.
Was the princess mumbling to herself
It was said that in the past, AYun had relied on her ability to commit many evil deeds in the Palace Bureau and had indeed bullied many young palace maids.
Could it be that the princess knew of these things too
