The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 162
Empress Wei smiled and beckoned to Qin Jiu, calling her to come to her, smiling as she looked at her again, the more she looked, the more she felt that her niece was very beautiful, but it was a pity that she was about to belong to someone else.
In the hunting manor, there were not as many rules. Empress Wei pulled on Qin Jiu to sit next to her affectionately, and asked with a smile: “Jiu, what do you think of Gu Zezhi?”
Qin Jiu snorted when she heard her words, and said in her heart: What is she asking this for?
No matter what it is for, it doesn’t matter, but she can’t let people think that she was dissatisfied with her golden thigh. He’ll for sure come to her when he hears about this, and she’ll be forever paranoid over this.
So, Qin Jiu sat in a precarious manner and said in a serious tone: “Aunt, Prince Gu is a very good man.”
The smile on Empress Wei’s face grew stronger when she heard her say this, her expression was gentle and loving.
At the banquet just now, Ye Luluan obviously wanted to ask Qin Jiu to marry him. Once he proposes this in front of all the civil and military forces of the Dynasty, with another thousand horses on the line, under such circumstances, even the emperor would find it difficult to refuse.
Fortunately, Gu Zezhi stood up for this girl, and he also used it to strengthen Daqi’s great power!
Gu Zezhi was impeccable in his literary talents and martial arts. Although he was not a crown prince, with his ability, he could always earn himself a title and future on his own. The most important thing is that Jiu was quite satisfied with him and that he was also fond of her.
Well, these two are both talented and beautiful, fond of each other, they’re a good match.
The more Empress Wei thought about it, the more she felt that Gu Zezhi was a good pick, and she continued to inquire Qin Jiu enthusiastically: “Jiu, does Gu Zezhi treat you well?”
“Yes, of course he treats me well.” Qin Jiu nodded hurriedly, for fear of speaking too slowly, “Jin……Prince Gu is very good to me.”
Empress Wei nodded as she listened, her big smile could no longer be hidden, “As long as he treats you well.”
Qin Jiu: “Yes, yes!”
Huh? Something feels wrong……
Qin Jiu blinked, she felt that her tone sounded slightly weird, and it seemed that she didn’t understand what she was implying.
Forget it, maybe she was overthinking this……
Thinking back about what she had just said, Qin Jiu smiled, her eyes curled. She for sure didn’t say anything wrong today!
The two then spoke on for a while, and then the emperor came, so Qin Jiu excused herself wittily.
“Emperor,” Empress Wei held the emperor’s hand happily, beaming with joy, “I think this marriage might work!”
She had tested the water just now, Jiu said that Gu Zezhi was a very good man, and he treated her well. Moreover, when Jiu talked about Gu Zezhi, her little face seemed to glow.
These two can definitely make it!
The emperor listened to her with a smile, raised his eyebrows and asked, “How should we address them in the future?”
Empress Wei felt that it was not a huge problem, and said casually: “We’ll address them in our own ways. Anyway, this kind of thing is not uncommon for the royal family.”
The second emperor of this dynasty had even accepted both his aunt and his nephew into the palace. In the previous dynasty, there was a ridiculous emperor who even forced his son’s concubine to be his, and this was even written in the folk songs and operas.
Emperor: “……” The empress’ words make sense.
“Emperor, do you think it’s time for me to prepare the dowry for Jiu? That Qin family is unreliable! I’ll quickly prepare a dowry list……” Empress Wei mumbled about the dowry, but her mind was obviously very much distracted.
The emperor looked at her happily, and said in his heart: Well, as long as she’s happy. How to address them, it’s really not a big deal.
After counting the dowry, Empress Wei remembered one more thing, and changed up the conversation: “Emperor, Zhen’er told me just now that Jiu gifted him a bow. I saw that it was exactly that kind of compound bow.”
Qin Jiu was busy refining the compound bow in the Ministry of Works. Of course, the emperor knew about it. She only took away the newly improved bow after getting the emperor’s permission.
For the emperor, the craftsmen only needed to know how to make a bow. The bow was made with Qin Jiu’s hard work, so she deserved the bow. However, what the emperor did not expect was that Qin Jiu took the bow for Gu Zhen.
The emperor was startled, he smiled, and said with a meaningful expression: “This girl is really one-track minded. She only made one of that bow. I haven’t even seen it yet.
Empress Wei smiled and nodded, and then said clearly: “Zhen’er treats it as his treasured possession, if you want to see it, you ask him for it yourself.”
