The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 101
“She’s my only sister!” He emphasized.
Qin Xin looked up and smiled at Qin Zeyu, then looked at Qin Jiu on the right, with slanted eyebrows and a provocative expression, as if she was saying that it wasn’t easy to take over her place.
Qin Jiu smiled but said nothing.
When the time came, everyone from the Qin family went to the ancestral hall located in the northeast corner of the Marquess Mansion.
The ancestral hall opened, Qin Jiu’s name was recorded in the genealogy, and Qin Xin’s name was written again under the second wife’s name.
The ritual was somewhat complicated, but also simple at the same time, they had to repeatedly kneel and kowtow to the memorial tablets of the ancestors of the Qin family, Qin Jiu’s knees felt numb from all the kneeling.
Next, Qin Jiu and Qin Xin had to formally meet with the patriarch and the other clan members to acknowledge them as part of the family.
The two went to the wing room to change.
When they walked out, Qin Xin, who was walking in front of Qin Jiu, suddenly stopped in her steps, she turned around and said softly: “Don’t ever think that you can change a thing by having the Empress Dowager supporting you. I won’t let you have the second prince.”
Qin Jiu twitched her brows and said with a serious face: “There’s no need for that, I’m not interested in other people’s ‘things’.”
Empress Wei once told Qin Jiu that she should just let Qin Xin and the second prince, Gu Jing’s marriage contract go on. It isn’t a bad thing. Even if Empress Dowager Liu had the thought of calling off the marriage contract after Yunguang’s incident, Empress Wei said that she would deter the Empress Dowager to give up on the idea. After Yunguang’s incident, Empress Wei discovered how to “get along” with Empress Dowager Liu.
Qin Jiu frankly agreed to it, it won’t be easy to break the male and female protagonist apart, and Qin Jiu didn’t even intend to break them apart!
Qin Xin pursed her lips and looked at Qin Jiu as she stood up straight.
She didn’t believe Qin Jiu, Qin Jiu was lying, she was jealous of her, after all, in this life, she would replace her and become the second prince’s concubine, no, she would be even better than Qin Jiu in her previous life.
“Second mistress, third mistress, it’s time!” A maid shouted eagerly from outside.
Qin Xin turned around again, she lifted her skirt to cross the doorsill and walked over.
Qin Jiu also followed.
When the two walked to the front hall of the Qin’s ancestral hall, the patriarch and a group of old clanmates were already waiting in the hall, everyone’s gaze fell on Qin Jiu and Qin Xin outside the hall, who walked side by side as they approached.
It should be said that their gaze fell more on Qin Jiu
This is their first time seeing the legendary Qin Jiu.
All the relatives couldn’t hide the excitement on their faces. They didn’t expect that the third mistress Qin, who was rumored to be even worse than the maids in the Qin family, would look like this.
Today, both of Qin Jiu’s outfits that were worn during the genealogy ceremony and the recognition of relatives ritual, were all tailored by Empress Wei from the Needlework Bureau. At the moment, she was wearing a purple dress with delicate butterflies and orchids embroidered on it.
In the Great Qi Dynasty, purple was a noble color, the ordinary civilians couldn’t not wear the color purple. Only royal family members, noble priests, and officials of grade 3 or above could wear this color.
Purple is a very tricky colour. If one’s skin tone is more of a dark yellowish tone, purple will make that person look rather gloomy, and the bright purple worn by Qin Jiu is one of the trickiest shades of purple. The shade is as bright as a purple iris. If the person’s temperament can’t hold it down, the dress would outshine the person who wears that shade.
Coincidentally, Qin Xin was wearing a purple dress that was similar to that color today.
Qin Xin’s appearance is sweet and delicate, she was taken very good care of as she grew up in the Qin family ever since she was a child. She mastered chess, calligraphy and painting, even if she didn’t speak, her strides still gave off a graceful, sophisticated and smart aura, but when she stood next to Qin Jiu, she was slightly outshined.
Qin Jiu’s facial features are more refined, her skin looks fairer, and is even brighter than the snow. The sun coated her with a light shade of radiance, and her pure apricot colored eyes were bright and clear, shining brightly with energy.
Her steps were elegant and light, she was naturally born with gleaming confidence, just like a shining pearl, which attracted everyone’s gaze.
