1310 Wake Up From His Dream Laughing

One could imagine how prominent Lu Tingchen’s status would be in the future.

It was unbelievable to think that an outstanding young man like him would take a fancy to Jiu.

Most importantly, Zhao Qian knew Lu Tingchen’s character well as they used to interact frequently back when the latter was the commander of the palace cavalry,

Although Lu Tingchen had enjoyed high social standing since his birth, he had never developed the bad habits that other young noblemen indulged in; on the contrary, he was extremely self-disciplined.

Zhao Qian was not at all concerned about Jiu marrying him; in fact, he believed that it was her greatest blessing.

Zhao Qian felt that he would probably wake up from his dream laughing that night.

Lu Liangwei chuckled at the silly grin on his face as he immersed himself in his reverie.

From Butler Zhao’s reaction, it seemed that he highly approved of her brother and Jiu’s relationship.

“Butler Zhao, my mother suggests that we choose an auspicious date for them to get engaged first, and then we’ll decide on the wedding date. The sooner, the better.”

Coming back to his senses, Zhao Qian used all his effort to stop the corners of his mouth from turning up and nodded his head solemnly. “As you wish, Your Highness.”

Just when Lu Liangwei was about to reply, a servant appeared and informed them that the Dowager Duchess had entered the palace.

“Hurry and bring her in.” It was inconvenient for Lu Liangwei to go out and welcome the Dowager Duchess while carrying Yaoyao, so she ordered the servant to do it.

“I’ll go.” The news of the Dowager Duchess’s arrival seemed to invigorate Zhao Qian even more, and he went out in high spirits.

“Butler Zhao?” The Dowager Duchess was surprised to see Zhao Qian welcoming her with a beaming face. Returning the smile, she asked, “Why are you in such a good mood?”

Zhao Qian held her arm cordially and guided her inside, grinning ear to ear at the thought of Lu Tingchen and Jiu’s marriage. “I’m just so happy for the Heir Presumptive and Jiu.”

The Dowager Duchess was unaware of Chu Jiu and Zhao Qian’s relationship, and she thought that he was merely being happy for Tingchen and Chu Jiu after hearing the news.

“I’m glad as well.” She nodded. She had been ecstatic for the whole day after receiving Lihua’s letter, and she would have already barged into the palace last night if it had not been so late.

When did Tingchen even bewitch the young lady?

She had thought that she would have to wait for a few more years to see him get married.

As they chatted, they entered the main hall.

“Grandmother.” Lu Liangwei rose to her feet with Yaoyao in her arms.

After holding Yaoyao and Yin’er fondly, the Dowager Duchess looked around the hall. When she found that Ji’er was nowhere in sight, she could not help asking, “Is Ji’er still under Chu Qi’s care?”

“Yes.” Lu Liangwei nodded. “Ji’er’s used to Lil Qi taking care of her.”

The Dowager Duchess glanced at her disapprovingly. “I know Lil Qi saved Ji’er many times and helped babysit her for quite a while, but he’s still a boy. It’s awfully inconvenient for a boy to take care of a baby.”

“I know, but Ji’er really clings to Lil Qi. Yesterday, she slept with me, but she woke up in the middle of the night crying for him. The Emperor and I couldn’t comfort her at all,” Lu Liangwei said helplessly.

The Dowager Duchess was also aware of how attached Ji’er was to Chu Qi. Sighing, she said reassuringly, “Then take it slow – but you still have to find a way to get Ji’er used to your care, even if it’s exhausting.”

Lu Liangwei thought so too and nodded. “I will, Grandmother.”

Next, they started discussing Lu Tingchen and Chu Jiu’s marriage, and only then did the Dowager Duchess realize that Chu Jiu was Zhao Qian’s adopted daughter.

No wonder he was so delighted.

Lu Liangwei invited an Imperial Astronomer to select a date for the wedding.

After doing some calculations, the Imperial Astronomer informed them that there were no more auspicious dates for that month, but there was one early next month.

The Dowager Duchess immediately made the decision.

Lu Tingchen and Chu Jiu were set to get engaged on the third day of the following month.
