Naturally, no one dared to disobey the orders of the family head. Even Gu Huayan, who had just lost her son and couldn't wait to find a hole to hide in, stood quietly in the corner with the support of a maidservant.

Gu Xi was guessing that someone had already taught her a lesson, so she naturally didn't argue and ask for an explanation from Gu Qingyi. Instead, she blushed and occasionally glanced at Gu Huaiyan in the corner with an embarrassed expression, as if she wanted to say something but was hesitant.

"Cough, cough, cough ?" Seeing that everyone had arrived, Gu Yan Nian cleared his throat and slowly stood up. He swept his eyes over the crowd, "Today I've asked everyone to come here because I have a few things to announce."

Since Gu Yinian had started out as a self-made family, and his parents had died young, he had no siblings. Even after he had been crowned king, many people had come looking for him. Adding Feng Yue to that, there was a total of four concubines. The young master only had one, Gu Xi, and there was also a young lady who had been raised in the Prince Gu Mansion as a cousin. After that, there was Gu Qingyi, who had not been back for half a month, and the rest were just servants.

Gu Yan had been living in poverty since he was young, so he wasn't used to having too many servants. Therefore, the entire mansion only had around a hundred people.

Now, everyone was standing obediently in the main hall.


"Yes sir!"

Gu Yannan had never interfered with the inner chamber's matters before. Naturally, she was in charge of it when Princess Anping was still in the inner chamber. Afterwards, it had fallen into the hands of Lian Fengyue over the years. Of course, the one who was the most uneasy was Gu Huaiyan.

After such a shameful incident had happened, his father had asked everyone to come to the main hall. He was afraid that this matter had something to do with him.

When she thought of herself ? How could I, in front of so many people ? Her face was burning again, and her lips were white... Trembling like a leaf in an autumn breeze ?

If it weren't for the maidservants supporting her carefully, she probably wouldn't have been able to stand stably.

In her heart, however, she hated Gu Qingyi. She must have done it on purpose. If it wasn't for her ? If it wasn't for her, how could she have been so ugly?

Clenching her head tightly, Gu Huaiyan lowered her head. Anger burned in her heart.

Suddenly, she heard Gu Yannan mention her name. She immediately raised her head ?


"Father, father."

Did you come? Did he really come? Was his father really making everyone come after him? Was he going to say what had happened today in front of so many people?

Gu Leyan bit her lip and staggered, almost falling down. Her face was so pale that it was devoid of color. Huge drops of sweat rolled down her face.

"You ? You're getting old... "Is it time to ?" Gu Yan Nian looked at Gu Huayan and originally wanted to say something about what had happened today. However, when his gaze landed on her bloodless face, he did not say anything in the end. He only sighed deeply in his heart. Forget it, forget it. He had raised her for so many years after all. No matter what, he had neglected her.

As for Gu Huayan, her entire body was trembling nonstop. Even the maidservants were unable to support her.

At this moment, she only had one thought in her mind, and that was that she was finished ? 'It's over, I'm really done for ? ' This time, it was really meant for him ? Thinking of this, she couldn't help but stare at Gu Qingyi who was standing not far away, her eyes filled with hatred ?

It was all her, all because of this little slut. If it wasn't for her, she wouldn't have been so ugly ?

She must have done it on purpose.

He usually looked muddle-headed, but who would've thought that ? Who would have thought that he was filled with evil intentions ? She must have let it go earlier, otherwise ? Otherwise, why would she know that he was Sunflower Dew...
