Gu Bailu lifted her head and looked at the moon that was covered by clouds. “Let’s pack up and go home.”
“My lady, do we have a home?”
“Of course we do.” Gu Bailu patted her.
Her home was the Gu house, which belonged to her mother and her grandfather before that, and certainly not to Gu Zongxiong or Ye Yunshu.
She would take it back from them.
She had had no time for them when she was living in Prince Zi’s house, but now, she had plenty of time.
Gu Bailu soon packed up all her own stuff, including her clothes, the King of the 9,999 Spring Harbingers, and plenty of gold, silver and jewelry.
She needed money, and she knew that there was plenty more in the underwater palace than what she was taking away.
She was only taking her share of the loot.
She took with her Chen Yi and Chen Mu, who belonged to her.
She tossed the badge to the vault, which didn’t belong to her.
Then, she left the house with her bags.
Ah Luo had called for a carriage. They moved the stuff into the carriage, and were about to leave, when her maid shouted, “Where are you going, princess? Please take me with you!”
“You’re from this house. I can’t take you.” Gu Bailu waved her hand.
Ye Ying also knelt and said, “Princess, my lord told me to follow wherever you go. You have to take me.”
“Don’t worry, he’ll tell you the same later, except that you’ll be serving someone else. Go back. I’m leaving.”
Gu Bailu dropped the curtain and lay down, leaving the house as easily as she had come before.
But she wondered what she was going to do about the Sky Splitting Mirror. Feng Qingtian probably wouldn’t be of much help any longer.
Chen Yi asked in confusion, “What happened? Why are you moving out in the middle of the night?”
Gu Bailu sighed. “His legitimate lover is back. I’m only making room for her.”
“What are you talking about? You’re the legitimate princess that’s on the list of royal family members.”
“And I can always be removed from the list. Anyway, I’m now single again, and I have a great life ahead of me. Thankfully, I don’t have any…”
Gu Bailu suddenly sat up. Any children!
She had had a lot of sex with Feng Qingtian recently without any birth control. What if she got pregnant?
She touched her belly, praying that she wouldn’t be so unlucky to find herself pregnant immediately after a divorce.
However, her intuition had seemed very accurate lately.
Gu Bailu knocked on the gate of the Gu house in the middle of the night. The guards were shocked, but didn’t dare refuse Princess Zi at all.
“Why have you come so late, princess?”
“I can come back home any time I want,” Gu Bailu simply snapped, and the guard didn’t dare say anything else.
Gu Bailu swaggered to her yard and tossed her bags aside.
“Get some rest tonight. We’ll unpack tomorrow. Chen Yi, you’ll sleep in the room over there with Chen Mu. Ah Luo, stay with me.”
“Okay, I’ll keep you company, my lady.”
Ah Luo knew that Gu Bailu wasn’t in a good mood, but she didn’t know how to comfort her.
