The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 280
And the outcome——
“Son,” Old Madam Qin sighed, with her eyebrows furrowed tightly. “You can’t divide the family like this. No matter how you say it, you are also Ning’er’s elder, your eldest brother also treated you well when he was alive…”
Qin Zhun: “!”
He simply did not know what to say, he wanted to explain but felt tired. No matter how much he said, would anyone even believe him?!
The head and the clan elders saw Old Madam Qin express her stand, and exchange a look with each other. The head said, “Marquis since your mother said so then let’s separate the family.”
“There are rules for splitting the family, if you want to split the family, do it properly, you can’t let people outside see the joke of our Qin family!”
The rest of the clan elders also expressed their agreement one after another, and all give earnest and well-meaning advice.
Seeing that the separation of the two families “inexplicably” becomes what the people “expect”, Qin Zeyu’s mind becomes more complicated he almost knelt down to his sister: En, he must not provoke his sister in the future, lest he won’t know how he even dies…
Qin Zhun: “…”
Qin Zhun’s lips were pursed in silence, weighing up the pros and cons in his mind.
The reason he didn’t want to split the family was because he was afraid that others would say he had treated the eldest house poorly, but the troubles had reached this point and it was impossible not to separate the family.
Now the whole capital knows that he was going to drive away the three younger generations of the eldest family, and even Old Madam Qin was convinced that no matter how much he justifies no one would believe him anymore.
Even if he insisted on leaving the brothers and sister in the marquis’s residence, Qin Zening was no longer a child and Qin Jiu could go in and out of the palace, surely she wouldn’t miss talking bad against him everywhere, saying he wants to take revenge on them, suppressing Qin Zening and preventing to develop his career…
Perhaps it’s better to separate the family.
Once Qin Zhun had this idea, he felt that the advantages of the idea outweighed the disadvantages, and his mind turned quickly.
Over the years, the emperor refused to allow him to establish a legitimate heir, this made him think that maybe the emperor was waiting for Qin Zening to make contributions so that he could pass the title back to the eldest house. If the two houses were divided, and once the eldest house and the second house becomes two separate families, then he would have nothing worry about establishing his rightful heir.
Qin Zhun took a deep breath as he put on a heavy look, and sighed heavily, “Ning’er, you are already old enough to have your own ideas. Since you and your sister want to separate, let’s do it.”
Qin Zhun then looked at Qin Zening who was diagonally across from him, and an unexpected flash shined under his dark and deep eyes.
His meaning was, Qin Zening had caused a lot of trouble, and when he accidentally fell off his horse, he didn’t even break his leg but insisted on making trouble which caused a shock to the whole capital. And this girl Qin Jiu who grew up outside was a wild person with no dignity, it’s only been a few months since she returned to the capital but she already causes and rose so many troubles causing disturbance to the Qin family!
Even if the separation of the family was inevitable, Qin Zhun does not want to have Qin Zening and Qin Jiu’s way completely and intends to pull back the situation. No matter what he had to push the responsibility for the separation of the family to Qin Zening.
“Ai!” Qin Zening also sighed, and followed Qin Zhun’s words, “It turned out that second uncle still didn’t want to split up… then we three should just move out.”
Qin Zening turned back the words again.
“……” Qin Zhun’s face turned green and white for a while and was on the verge of lifting the table.
The head frowned and was about to be a peacemaker when a maidservant suddenly ran in with hurried footsteps and said, “Old Madam, marquis, third master Gu is here!”
Qin Zhun’s already furrowed forehead tightened even more, he wanted to end this farce today so he doesn’t want to entertain guests.
However, before he could say anything, the maidservant who came to report continued: “Master Gu said… that he was ordered by the emperor to see how the Qin family splits.”
The maidservant girl’s voice became even softer, and her head fell lower and lower, not daring to see Qin Zhun’s face at all.
There was a silence in the hall.
The head and the clan elders also showed surprise on their faces, they didn’t expect that the Qin family’s separation had already alerted the emperor.
Qin Zhun doesn’t want to see Gu Zezhi anymore, but as far as this was concerned, he could only ask the maidservant to bring Gu Zezhi.
Not long after, Gu Zezhi came in under the lead of the maidservant.
Everyone’s eyes in the hall were on Gu Zezhi’s figure from the moment his silhouette was outside the hall until he came in. Gu Zezhi on the other hand walked with confidence, his beautiful eyebrows and eyes were carefully drawn with fine brushwork complemented his gentle expression and noble demeanor.
Just looking at such a bright young man makes people feel bright and couldn’t help but have a good impression of him.
It was the first time for the head and other clan elders to see Gu Zezhi, and they were already filled with admiration: Qin Jiu was able to find such a good husband thanks to the empress’s care.
In the midst of everyone’s burning gazes, Gu Zezhi calmly crossed the threshold, gracefully bowed to Old Madam Qin, and then looked at Qin Jiu.
Qin Jiu still had her face down, as she pressed the handkerchief to the corner of her eyes wiping her nonexistent tears.
Gu Zezhi raised his eyebrows with great interest, then said softly, “Xiao Jiu, don’t be afraid, with me here, no one will dare bully you.” He handed a handkerchief to Qin Jiu and glanced over towards Qin Zhun.
Obviously, he meant that Qin Zhun bullied Qin Jiu.
“…” Seeing this unfold, Qin Zhun felt that Gu Zezhi was blind: who dares to bully this wild girl? A master who beats people with a whip if he disagrees with her! Which noble girl in the capital looks like her
