It snowed all night last night, so today’s sunshine shines brightly and sprinkles on the white snow around.
Gu Zezhi was dressed in a purple flower design with a woven silver straight robe inside and a black cloak on the outside.
His long and narrow phoenix eyes were as bright and clear as light reflected on the snow.
When he saw Qin Jiu, they were three times brighter, looking more breathtaking.
He smiled and looked at Qin Jiu walking towards him with light steps.
The cloak hood that was circled with white rabbit hair quivered along with her steps, making her face especially small.
Actually, he didn’t come to the marquis manor for anything, he just wanted to see her.
After all, he was not in the capital when the emperor ordered the decree, so he came to the Qin manor just after returning to the capital today to see her attitude towards the marriage.
At the moment, looking at Qin Jiu’s lively appearance, Gu Zezhi’s smile deepened: Hmm, this girl’s complexion is very good, not bad!
Qin Jiu walked up to Gu Zezhi in three steps or two.
When she got closer, she found Gu Zezhi look worn out from traveling which made her heart strangely light.
“Brother, did you just come back”
The gatekeeper shrank silently, in the marquis’s manor who does not know that the third young miss was a bad master.
She even dared to directly hit the fifth young master, and not even bothering to give the madam a face.
In short, she was the new devil in the marquis’s manor! Whoever messes with her would be waiting to suffer!
“En, I just came back, and entered the palace just now.” Gu Zezhi nodded slightly.
The white horse behind him also gave a loud snort.
Qin Jiu was very familiar with the white horse, so she couldn’t help touching it.
The white horse rubbed her affectionately, which made the loose cloak hood on her head fall back.
Gu Zezhi squinted at the white horse and was about to put back the hat for Qin Jiu, but his right hand paused mid-air before he pulled out a leaf stuck on her temple as he said with a smile.
“Did you just trim a Clivia”
The stubbed leaf on his hand clearly has a cut that has been trimmed with scissors.
Qin Jiu nodded, her eyes were sparkling.
“I’ve raised it well, my clivia is blooming now!”
Clivia usually blooms in spring and summer.
If it was well raised, it could bloom all year round.
Qin Jiu had nothing to do in the marquis manor every day, besides reading books, practicing calligraphy, raising flowers, riding horse, and so on, to kill time.
“I also plan to plant some plum trees in the yard behind my courtyard.
The flowers and trees in the yard have all withered this season, so it looks a bit deserted and desolate.”
Qin Jiu said cheerfully.
Gu Zezhi listened to her smiling with a radiant light flashed under his eyes, and casually proposed.
“You can also plant some camellia.”
Qin Jiu’s eyes were brighter, “Camellia is good!”
Gu Zezhi: “I will ask the gardener of the palace to send you some camellia at the beginning of spring.”
Qin Jiu didn’t want to be polite to Gu Zezhi and nodded.
A gust of cold wind blew around the trees, swaying slightly, blowing the snow off the branches, and snowflakes fluttered down as if light snow had fallen again.
Gu Zezhi put on Qin Jiu’s cloak hood again for her, just keeping the snowflakes out of her head, in contrast to his head that has now snowflakes which made him even made him look more worn-out.
Qin Jiu wanted to ask Gu Zezhi to go back and rest early but before she could say anything, Gu Zezhi suddenly took off a white jade pendant with a ring-shaped bird pattern on his waist.
Gu Zezhi: “Stretched out your hand.”
Qin Jiu then dutifully extended her right hand.
Gu Zezhi placed the white jade ring pendant in Qin Jiu’s hand and said with a smile, “I’ll go back first.”
At the same time, he grabbed the reins of the white horse and got on the horse.
Qin Jiu subconsciously gripped the ring pendant, which still carries a residual warmth.
Did he come here specially to give her a jade pendant
Qin Jiu shouted, “Big brother!”
The white horse had just turned around when the young man in purple looked back at her.
Under the backlight, the sun cast a golden halo behind him, and the beautiful face was slightly blurred in the shadow.
Qin Jiu: “Stretched out your hand.”
Gu Zezhi smiled and stretched out his hand in a kindly manner, his palm with a thin callus facing front.
Qin Jiu stepped two steps forward, gave him her hand stove, waved to him cheerfully, and then turned in the direction of the Marquis Residence.
Gu Zezhi: “….”
He looked at her lithe back with a gentle and pleasant smile.
Gu Zezhi held the hand stove in one hand and held the reins in the other, and as soon as he patted the horse’s belly, the white horse resounded a loud “neigh”, and march back to the Duan Wang manor.
