The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 13
Her son had fallen into the lake, but Mama Li was standing by the side safe and sound.
Besides Mama Ding, the rest of the servants weren’t there. Meanwhile, the lady that Mama Ding accused was soaked.
She wasn’t stupid. She knew who was lying.
“Seize Mama Ding!”
The beautiful woman ordered furiously.
The two mamas behind her immediately walked over and suppressed Mama Ding within a few moves.
Mama Ding’s face paled even more and she frighteningly exclaimed, “Master, you have to believe this mama. This mama has served you for so many years… Omph.”
A handkerchief was shoved into Mama Ding’s mouth crudely. The two mamas dragged her to the side. This was a time to practice religion. They’d deal with this maid after they were back.
“Young lady.” The beautiful woman’s voice trembled, but it was a bit undetectable. “Many thanks for today. Follow me to get your clothes changed now.”
“My husband’s surname is Gu, so you can just call me Madam Gu.”
“You’re soaked and it’s too cold here. Don’t stand here. Let’s talk after we’re back in the private room.”
“Many thanks Madam Gu.” Qin Gui didn’t reject her offer, curtsying and thanking her.
She came to Tranquil Temple for this “Madam Gu.”
“Gu” was a national surname.
This “Madam Gu” was the empress.
The original body’s birth mother’s surname was Wei, and she was the eldest daughter from the second household of Imperial Duke Zheng’s residence. Now, she was siblings with the empress. The two sisters were only two years apart and they have had a great relationship since they were children.
The former emperor granted marriage for the eldest daughter of Imperial Duke Zheng’s residence and the crown prince. She became the crown princess. After the crown prince ascended the throne, the crown princess was naturally conferred the title as the empress.
Empress Wei had two sons. The elder son had died early on.
Up until five years ago did Empress Wei give birth to her younger son, the Sixth Prince. Back then, she almost died due to birth complications. She fortunately survived, but her body had been worn down as a result. These years, her body had been getting weaker and weaker.
In the novel, the Sixth Prince drowned and died early on. Later on, Empress Wei also died soon after due to self-loath and sorrow.
However, this was only briefly mentioned in the novel. The heroine, Qin Xin, also sobbed over the Sixth Prince’s death. Then, she even stayed with Empress Wei for a few days in order to comfort her. After that, the emperor also returned to the capital in advance.
For the past few days, Qin Gui had been staying in Tranquil Temple, wanting to change Empress Wei and the Sixth Prince’s fates. Even more, she could then logically appear in front of her.
But, the novel mentioned that the Sixth Prince had drowned within Tranquil Temple’s mirror lake, but it didn’t say that there were two.
Qin Gui originally thought that the Sixth Prince had drowned in the big mirror lake up until she realized that there were a lot of worshippers there. Even if someone accidentally fell into the water, they should be saved in time. Therefore, she probed the little monk…
Thankfully, it wasn’t too late yet!
Qin Gui secretly sighed inside.
Empress Wei took off her cloak and ordered her personal maid, “Youbai, help this lady wear the cloak.”
Youbai shockingly widened her eyes and hesitated. Then, she responded, “Yes, master.”
“It’s fine.” Qin Gui shook her head. “Give it to the little young master. He’s young and just fell into the water. He’d probably get a cold from the wind.”
The Sixth Prince just got saved, so Qin Gui didn’t want anything to happen to him.
Empress Wei’s eldest son had died due to a common cold. Hearing this, her hands on the cloak tightened.
She wrapped the cloak around her son and tightly hugged him.
