The Grand Secretary’s Pampered Wife - Chapter 201.1
Gu Jinyu’s reply was tantamount to admitting it.
The way people looked at her became more and more full of admiration.
Gu Jinyu walked into the women’s academy surrounded by a crowd. Before entering the gate, however, she glanced at the medical hall first, trying to find Gu Jiao.
Gu Jiao didn’t come to the medical hall today.
She went to the post station to send letters to Xue Ningxiang. It was a reply from her, as well as a reply from Zhou Erzhuang brought back by Gu Changqing from the military camp. She also sent some toys from the capital which were for Gouwa while she was at it.
Gouwa was now two years old. He could now walk, run and jump, and he was especially good at calling people, especially calling people dad.
Gu Jiao asked Xue Ningxiang in the letter if she had any plans to find a father for Gouwa.
Gu Jiao didn’t have those rigid ideas. In Gu Jiao’s view, Xue Ningxiang was still young, only two years older than her, just seventeen this year.
Gu Jiao didn’t mean that a woman must find a man to be successful in life, but she didn’t have to live as a widow all her life for the sake of so-called reputation.
She had the right to pursue her own happiness.
From the fact that she had practiced her handwriting to be this good, it could be seen that Xue Ningxiang was by no means a little widow who was numb to life and resigned to fate. She had been around the elderly lady for so long, and the elderly lady didn’t like her for nothing.
She had her own pursuit in life.
However, she was afraid that this kind of pursuit would be a kind of disgraceful behavior in grave breach of the norms of society, which would eventually arouse the scorn and ridicule of people.
Gu Jiao bumped into a man when she came out of the post station.
He wasn’t an acquaintance, but she had seen him before.
The other party was dressed in maroon brocade garb, unbridled and flamboyant in temperament, and handsome in facial features, especially his evil-looking yet charming eyes.
It was just that his evil charm rather somewhat displeased Gu Jiao.
Gu Jiao ignored him and walked on with a straight face.
The instant she passed by him, the other party suddenly stretched out his arm and blocked Gu Jiao’s way.
“Young miss, long time no see.” The Fourth Prince hooked up his lips and smiled. “What a coincidence. Are you also here to mail a letter?”
Gu Jiao looked at the arm in front of her, and felt a little irritated.
To be fair, the Fourth Prince wasn’t bad-looking. If she hadn’t seen the beautiful monk, he might have passed Gu Jiao’s aesthetic, even if barely.
But it hurt when there was a comparison, didn’t it?
As both beauties with evil charm, the beautiful monk simply left him far behind for more than a dozen streets!
Gu Jiao was annoyed.
The expression in the Fourth Prince’s eyes was very explicit, “Yo, the little lady has a fierce temper. However, it doesn’t matter. This Highness here also disdains to tame meek horses. It’s bland and boring. So, young miss, can we have time to have a cup of tea?”
Gu Jiao gave him a faint look, “I’m not thirsty.”
The Fourth Prince persevered, “The snacks in Exquisite Jade Building are also good. Would young miss like to try it?”
Gu Jiao replied, “I’m not hungry.”
The Fourth Prince continued, “Then, why don’t we watch a show in the opera house.”
Gu Jiao, who was annoyed to a certain extent, suddenly calmed down. She looked him up and down and asked, “Do you have lots of money with you?”
The Fourth Prince was stunned.
What was she saying? Did a grand prince like him still needed money to go to the opera house? However, he indeed had a lot of money with him.
He smiled and said, “Yes, I have lots. This prince will buy everything the young miss likes.”
Gu Jiao thought seriously, “Then, let’s go to a deserted place.”
She had to make it clean.
Must not let her husband find out.
The Fourth Prince didn’t expect this little girl to actually take the lead. He was stupefied for a moment before thinking it was just normal.
He was an imperial prince, who really had the courage to oppose him?

“I know a place where there is no one else.” With a satisfied smile, the Fourth Prince turned around and held up the curtain of the carriage.
“Are you sure?” Gu Jiao asked.
Her husband was a scholar, and he might become an official in the future. It wasn’t suitable for the future wife of a Gongshi to blatantly rob people.
Therefore, Gu Jiao decided to give him one last chance. But if he was in a hurry to die, then she could only fulfill his wish.
The Fourth Prince was a little puzzled. Wasn’t the order of things here wrong? Shouldn’t he be the one asking her that question?
“I am very sure, young miss, please——” He made a gesture.
Just as Gu Jiao was about to get on the carriage, another carriage drove up.
The carriage stopped beside the two people. When its curtain was lifted, a figure as clear as jade came down.
“Your Fourth Highness, long time no see.”
It was the same opening remarks as his own. It was nothing coming from his own mouth, but hearing it from others, he slightly felt that the other part had ulterior motives.
The Fourth Prince narrowed his eyes, looked at the young man opposite him and said, “An Junwang?”
An Junwang smiled warmly, then his eyes rested on Gu Jiao, saying, “Isn’t this Young Miss Gu? Young Miss Gu doesn’t have to go to the medical hall today?”
“You know each other?” The Fourth Prince asked suspiciously.
An Junwang smilingly responded, “My younger sister and I spent a few days in the villa of Marquis Ding’an Estate when we were traveling out of the capital. This is the eldest young miss of Marquis Ding’an Estate.”
The Fourth Prince didn’t know much about the Marquis Ding’an Estate; he had only seen Gu Jinyu before.
An Junwang added, “I just came out of the palace. I heard that His Majesty is looking for several princes. I wonder if there is anything wrong.”
Having said so, how could the Fourth Prince still be in the mood to flirt with a beauty?
The Fourth Prince cast a deep look at An Junwang and Gu Jiao before getting into the carriage and taking his leave.
An Junwang turned to Gu Jiao and said with a warm temperament and gentle voice, “That’s the Fourth Prince of the current dynasty.”
“En.” Gu Jiao was aware.
It wasn’t by chance that An Junwang bumped into her. He paused and smiled to himself, “Right.”
She wasn’t just a flower in a greenhouse. How could she easily be tricked into a carriage by some man?
“Going back to the medical hall?” He asked.
“En.” Gu Jiao nodded.
An Junwang was just about to say that he would send her, when a noise came from above their heads. Suddenly, a tile on the eaves broke and slid down.
He stood in front of Gu Jiao while on the side of her was the carriage, and to her back and other side were walls, so it could be said that she had nowhere to escape to.
An Junwang stepped closer forward, intending to protect her with his tall body, blocking the tile for her.
However, the anticipated pain didn’t come. He blinked in confusion, looked up and saw that the tile had been nailed to the roof by the silver needle in Gu Jiao’s hand.
An Junwang stepped back and smiled helplessly, “Young Miss Gu, have you always been this extraordinary? You make it impossible for people to be the hero saving the beauty.”
Imperial Academy. Xiao Liulang walked out of the gates.
As soon as he came out, he saw Gu Jiao waiting for him under a big tree with her back basket.
She was carrying two small bags of medicine in both hands.
Although the weather was sunny, the weather had yet to become warm, especially after the sunset, the wind on the street would become much colder.
Xiao Liulang hurried over on his crutch, “Why didn’t you put on more clothes?”
“It still wasn’t cold when I left home.” She answered.
In other words, now it was cold.
