Rebirth of the Excellent Daughter of the Marquis Household - Chapter 25
Chapter 25: He was also reborn!
Fortunately, Gu Yu Qi had thrown her cloak in for a period of time which acted as a buffer. The guards and eunuchs from the princess’s residence had already heard the sound and rushed over. Even the crown prince, Yun Yi, and Yun Ke who were all admiring the plum blossoms in the forest came over to see what had happened.
Yun Ke only took one glance and a trace of coldness flashed in his eyes.
Having done such a great job in her previous life, why was she still like this in this life? Zhang Wan Yi and the two Zhao sisters had fallen into the water, but Gu Yu Qi stayed on the bridge. It did not seem like a coincidence no matter how you looked at it! Was she not going to give up until someone lost their life?
However… When Yun Ke’s eyes fell onto Gu Yu Qi’s hand, he was slightly startled. Her white hands were still tightly holding the straps of her cloak. The strap was deeply embedded in her palm and a bloodstain had appeared. Did she want to save the three people?
At this time, the guards and eunuchs who knew how to swim had jumped into the water. With great hurry, they picked them up. The princess and the noble ladies who were in the warm pavilion playing cards came over hurriedly when they received the news.
The two Zhao sisters were carried up by the guards. Zhang Wan Yi was about to drown to death but when she saw the person rescuing her was dressed as a guard, she refused and even choked on two more mouthfuls of water before she was brought to shore by a little eunuch who knew how to swim.
She wanted to marry a prince. If she was carried out of the water by a guard in full view, how would she marry into the imperial family?
Gu Yu Qi saw it clearly from the bridge. She and Zhang Wan Yi had been entangled in her previous life and she knew what she was thinking in her heart. She was really speechless. She was about to drown but she was still thinking about that.
The prime minister’s wife and Minister Zhao’s wife were so terrified that they practically lost their souls. When they reached the bridge and saw their daughters turning blue and purple from the cold, they did not know what to do.
It was Liang-shi who had experienced Gu Yu Qi falling in the water, so she rushed to order people to bring blankets and wrapped the three people with icy bodies. Then she made the eunuchs carry the three of them into the warm pavilion.
The princess was also very frightened and told the servants to quickly bring the imperial doctor from the palace. For a time, everyone was on the shore around the three people. Instead, Gu Yu Qi who was still on the bridge was disregarded on the side.
Liang-shi stayed behind secretly and helped Gu Yu Qi who was crouching by the bridge. Gu Yu Qi was afraid that Liang-shi would worry, so she quietly hid her injured hand in her sleeve.
“What happened?” Liang-shi asked in a low voice, “You were with them, but why did they fall in the water while you’re alright?”
“Mother, if I said that they wanted to harm me and push me into the water, would you believe it?” Gu Yu Qi’s thoughts surged but in the end, she ultimately decided to tell her mother the truth.
Liang-shi was shocked, “Then you…” She hurriedly looked her daughter up and down and was relieved to see that there was no trace of water on her. Then she frowned deeply and lowering her voice, she asked in Gu Yu Qi’s ear, “Did you make the three of them fall into the water?”
“Yes,” Gu Yu Qi smiled coldly and said.
This… Liang-shi was at a loss for words… She should be happy that her daughter was fine, but right now, she really could not laugh. “Ah Nan, mother didn’t teach you martial arts for bullying others…”
“Mother, I didn’t want to bully people, but if someone is bullying me, then should I let them bully me?” Gu Yu Qi asked in a low voice.
“That… Of course not.” Liang-shi naturally believed her daughter, but one of the three people who had fallen into the water was the prime minister’s daughter and the other two belonged to the Minister of Finance’s family. They were all not easy to deal with. If they came over and took their daughter and would not let go, what should she do? Liang-shi was in a state of turmoil but she made up her mind that no matter what happened, she would bear it for her daughter.
“Ah Nan, go home first, let your mother take care of everything.” She decided to let Gu Yu Qi avoid the limelight first. If she needed to serve tea and make amends, it should be her as a mother who should go.
“Mother, go back to the warm pavilion first. I’ll come later,” Gu Yu Qi shook her head and said to Liang-shi.
“Daughter, are you crazy?” Liang-shi said anxiously, “If the princess and their parents hold you accountable, what will you do?”
“Mother, calm down, I’ll take care of everything. Don’t worry, I’ll be fine,” Gu Yu Qi’s mouth curved slightly, showing a bright smile to Liang-shi. “You have to trust me.”
Is that so? Although Gu Yu Qi spoke calmly and had a smile that was full of confidence, the three people who had fallen into the water were noble girls after all, this…
“Mother!” Seeing Liang-shi hesitate again, Gu Yu Qi continued, “I really have a way. Just trust me once.”
“That… Alright.” Liang-shi saw Gu Yu Qi’s assertiveness and could only walk to the warm pavilion half doubtfully. From the bottom of her heart, she could not stop praying to the gods in the heavens, hoping that her daughter really had a way to avoid this great difficulty.
After Gu Yu Qi watched Liang-shi leave, she gritted her teeth and took out her hand that she had tucked into her sleeve. The wound on her hand had turned her fingers blue and purple and the bloody wound had slashed deep into her bone, damn! She had actually been injured in order to save Zhang Wan Yi! She really had gone mad. However, if she had not taken action just now, it was likely that Zhang Wan Yi and the others really would not have lasted that long.
Gu Yu Qi looked at the wound on her left hand and smiled bitterly for a while. She should find something to wrap it in for now.
She walked slowly towards the shore. Her feet had just landed on the ground when she saw a person appear from behind the rockery on the side of the path, blocking her way.
Gu Yu Qi looked up and saw that it was Yun Ke.
“Greetings, Seventh Prince,” Gu Yu Qi was not in the mood to pretend to be polite with him right now. She just wanted to go around and find something to bandage her wound.
She hurriedly curtseyed then took a step to the left of the road, but she had not expected Yun Ke to take a step to the side too. Gu Yu Qi frowned and took another step to the right. Yun Ke also stepped right, blocking her way again.
“Seventh Prince, what is the meaning of this?” Gu Yu Qi had lost her patience completely. Her hand was hurting badly and she also had to go to the warm pavilion and explain what had happened just then. She did not have time to fool around with Yun Ke here!
“Hand!” Yun Ke said coldly.
“What?” Gu Yu Qi was startled and did not respond for a moment.
“Your hand!” Yun Ke furrowed his brows impatiently, “Explain!”
Only now did Gu Yu Qi understand what he meant. She just wanted to say: It’s none of your business! However, she still resisted it and did not spout it out.
“My hand is unimportant.” Gu Yu Qi was too lazy to even pretend and she just referred to herself as ‘I’, “Please move out of the way, I have other things to do,” She spoke impatiently.
Yun Ke was stunned at first, then the corner of his mouth curled up slightly and revealed a trace of a smile.
Although he was smiling, his smile held no warmth.
“This prince does not want to repeat it a third time. Your hand!” He said as he looked at Gu Yu Qi with a cold smile.
“Here!” Gu Yu Qi was so annoyed that she stretched out both her hands in a fit of anger.
“You were saving them?” Yun Ke glanced at Gu Yu Qi’s injured left hand again. Not long ago, he had held it and it had been uninjured. Yet, it did not take long for it to become like this.
“Why ask if you already know?!” Gu Yu Qi said impatiently, “You’ve seen it and you’ve asked, can you get out of the way?”
“Yes,” Yun Ke’s flashed slightly to the side, making way.
Gu Yu Qi glared at him then walked forward.
“Gu Cai Ren!” Suddenly, there was a shout from behind. Gu Yu Qi looked back subconsciously but saw Yun Ke standing behind her, his eyes dark and deep, a shadow of a smile on his face.
Gu Yu Qi was instantly struck by lightning. Her hands and feet felt cold but she quickly reacted, “Who is His Highness the Seventh Prince calling?” She asked while blinking. Although she was calm on the surface, her heart was surging in waves. Gu Cai Ren! He just called her Gu Cai Ren! That was her title after she had entered the palace in her previous life. He… He… Was also reborn!
