He looked serious and the Emperor seemed to believe in him. He asked Gu Xijiu, "Xijiu, is your hairpin poisonous?"
Gu Xijiu took a glance at Custodian Huo and seemed to have recalled something, "Your Majesty, I have difficulties in protecting myself. Hence, I put some medicine on my hairpin to make people feel itchy. However, its just medicine but not poison. He will be back to normal after a while."
Custodian Huo was mad and asked, "What are you talking about!? Ive been feeling the itchiness for a long time! Youre lying!"
Gu Xijiu frowned and asked, "How many days has it been since you have bathed?"
Custodian Huo was speechless and then asked, "Why are you asking about this?" What does it have to do with him not showering for a few days?
Gu Xijiu frowned again and said, "I think you havent bathed for half a month, am I right?"
Custodian Huo was mad, "Wh...What!?"
Gu Xijiu answered calmly, "The medicine on my hairpin wouldnt work on ordinary people and the itchiness doesnt last long. However, if someone hasnt bathed for more than two weeks they would feel the itchiness for a longer time."
Custodian Huo was furious and speechless.
Everyone around the royal chariot was looking at Custodian Huo with a strange expression.
The citizens of Feixing Kingdom prioritize cleanliness, to the point that even ordinary citizens would bathe at least once every two days.
For the royal family, they would at least bathe once a day, and some bathed more frequently than that. It was rare to find someone who did not bathe for two weeks! It was unbelievable to know that the custodian of the Jiuxing clan was so dirty.
Initially, everyone looked up to him, but now their idol had collapsed!
Indeed, Custodian Huo did not like to bathe but he was fussy with his attire. Therefore, he still looked neat and no one noticed his bad habit. However, he felt the insult when Gu Xijiu exposed his wound in front of everyone. His face was as red as a tomato.
He wanted to throw his tantrum but there was no reason for him to do so because Gu Xijiu did not poke him intentionally. He knew there was nothing he could do now and quickly said, "It seems like a misunderstanding, I'd better make a move first." He then rushed out of their vision.
It was too embarrassing for him to stay and he could only continue to bear with the itchiness. It was not too late to get revenge. The Emperor laughed as he saw Custodian Huo disappear. "Xijiu, I cant believe you have such a special medicine! Interesting!"
Gu Xijiu smiled and said, "Its for self-protection only."
"Do you have a name for this?"
"Hahahaha! Anti-pervert gel! Excellent! Xijiu, youre such a genius!" The Emperor looked happy and said, "Lets go! Off to Basilica Baohe! Ill prepare a party for your celebration!"
Basilica Baohe was the place for the scholars to sit for their examinations as well as the venue to serve all the ministers.
More than 10 ministers waiting in the basilica and everyone was shocked when they saw the Emperor arrive with Gu Xijiu. He was holding her hand!
The Emperor was someone with the highest authority, and nobody had seen him hold anyone's hand before.
Not even his daughters!
The Emperor held her hand and walked up to his throne. Initially, there was only one throne on the platform which represented the royalty of the Emperor. However, the Emperor got someone to add another table on the platform just below his throne, "Xijiu, you sit there."
