As soon as Gu Nuo’er left, Gu Zitang stomped his feet. “Marquis Yongye, you’re muddle-headed! How could you agree to bring Nuo’er going to see that kind of thing?!”
Ye Siming frowned in confusion. “What is it?”
Gu Zitang’s robe was dripping with water. “You’re still pretending to be stupid!”
The fifth prince couldn’t stand it anymore. He approached Ye Siming and whispered a few words in his ear.
Ye Siming’s brows suddenly raised, and a moment of disbelief appeared in his eyes.
Then, he frowned deeply.
The little thing heard that kind of thing?
He looked at the second prince, his gaze instantly turning cold.
When Gu Zitang met his gaze, he was stunned for a moment before questioning, “What?! Do you think it’s my fault?”
Ye Siming’s voice was emotionless. “You keep coming here when you have nothing better to do. Isn’t this leading her astray?”
Gu Zitang was just short of crying out in grievance.
“I came out to have fun normally. Unexpectedly, I was caught by my sister.
Fifth Brother, be the judge. Aren’t I innocent?!”
Unexpectedly, Gu Zichen shook his head. “I think Marquis Yongye is right.
Second Brother, it’s not that I want to say this, but lascivious activities can lead to bitter consequences. If you keep coming out to have fun, something bad will happen sooner or later.”
Ye Siming said calmly, “His Majesty has spies everywhere in the capital. His
Majesty will find out about what happened tonight tomorrow.”
After saying that, he looked at the second prince and the fifth prince.
What he meant was that they were left on their own!
Gu Zitang snorted. “I’ve already thought of a countermeasure just now.”
He waved his hand and got someone to call the procuress over.
When the Soft Fragrance Jade’s procuress came, she thought that one of their ladies had offended these important guests.
The moment she pushed open the door and entered, she put on an apologetic smile.
The two tortoise slaves behind him were still holding a dazzling array of fruit platters.
The procuress looked at the room that was filled with water stains. The scene was very sorry, but Qingrui and Yingmei were nowhere to be seen.
She thought that it was strange.
However, she still maintained a smile on his face. “Young masters, did the ladies not do a good job in serving you? Please calm down and eat some fruit.
I’ll change to a few more pretty ladies!”
Gu Zitang waved his hand and stopped her.
“There’s no need to change. I have something to instruct you to do. If you do it well, you’ll be rewarded heavily. If you don’t do it well, your head will fall.”
The procuress was shocked. “What’s so serious?”
Gu Zitang said a series of things and asked the procuress to make arrangements.
The procuress’s expression was very grim. “Young Master, this, this, this… Aren’t you telling us to ruin our reputation by asking us to do this? Many guests came and paid a high price.”
As soon as she finished speaking, Gu Zitang took out a stack of banknotes from his sleeve.
The procuress’s eyes widened.
The second prince said arrogantly, “No matter what method you use, get them to cooperate! If they dirty my sister’s eyes even a little, I’ll make it so that Soft Fragrance Jade won’t be able to remain in the capital.”
The procuress saw that Gu Zitang’s action of taking out the banknotes was very swift.
Moreover, he brought out so much money in one go.
She knew that she had encountered a tough nut to crack.
She quickly took the money, but still said in a difficult position, “However, our Soft Fragrance Jade is open for business.
“Many of the guests who came to play are all high-ranking officials and important people. Not only can’t we afford to offend them, but I’m afraid they might not listen to what I say.”
At this moment, Ye Siming, who had been silent all this while, had a cold expression.
“Wait a moment.”
After saying that, he walked to a window, pushed it open, and looked down.
“Qin Song, bring people up to the third floor.”
Qin Song, who was lying in ambush nearby, immediately cupped his hands and agreed.
The fifth prince was puzzled. “You came out to play, but you brought soldiers along?”
Ye Siming glanced at the second prince coldly. “It’s all because he lied and said that something had happened to Nuo’er.”
Gu Zitang and Gu Zichen were both a little surprised..
