The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 321
The two of them looked over at where the sound came from and saw Duan Wangye, dressed in a green brocade robe, walking out of a teahouse in front of them.
Gu Zezhi and Qin Jiu got off their horses and led them to Duan Wangye before they curtsied.
Duan Wangye looked at his son and a smile appeared on his majestic face and said earnestly. “Zezhi, now that you have been given a title, you must do well for the emperor in the future, and not become complacent when you just succeed a little.”
Duan Wangye was very pleased that his son made a lot of achievements, later on, his eldest son inherits the Duan Wang title, and since Zezhi already earned a title for himself, it was the best of both worlds.
Gu Zezhi clasped his hand in salute to Duan Wangye and said with a smile, “Thank you, father for your teaching.”
Duan Wangye stroked his beard, and the smile on his face deepened as he asked, “How is your mother consort… how is your mother?”
Gu Zezhi said bluntly, “My mother has left the capital.”
Duan Wangye: “!”
The smile on the corners of Duan Wangye’s lips disappeared in a flash, and was replaced with a frown of disbelief as he blurted out, “Your mother consort left the capital, why didn’t you even tell this wangye in advance?”
“Zezhi, don’t you know how to persuade your mother, the world now is chaotic, what will you do if she encounters some bandits?”
“Where the hell did she go? This wangye is going back to the border soon, isn’t she going back with this wangye?”
Duan Wangye said in a questioning tone.
“……” Qin Jiu was startled, and her eyes widened looking at Duan Wangye, thinking his logic was really strange!
Madam Xiao had already divorced him in front of the emperor in Jinluan hall, could it be that he thought it was all just a sham, and if he just coaxed her a little bit Madam Xiao would go back to the western border with him to continue living?
How does his brain work!
Qin Jiu heard that Duan Wangye had guarded the western border for so many years and his outstanding achievements on the battlefield were enough to go down in history, so could it be that all his brains were spent with military affairs?
Compared to Duan Wangye’s stunned looked, Gu Zezhi was so calm as he looked at Duan Wangye and reminded him. “Father, you haven’t remarried yet.”
Duan Wangye was dumbfounded for a moment before realizing what Gu Zezhi meant. His son was clearly saying that he no longer had a consort, so why call his mother “mother consort”!
This time, Duan Wangye’s face stiffened, before he scolded angrily, “Scoundrel, no son in this world is looking forward to his parent’s divorce!”
Duan Wangye never thought of divorcing the wangfei, it was just a matter of priority.
But in his heart, there was only one wangfei.
Duan Wangye calmed down as he softly said, “Zezhi, you also know that your eldest brother has always been good to you and is always the first to think of you when he gets a good horse and a good sword. You and your brother are eighteen years apart, he is like a father to you so how can your eldest brother be on guard against you.”
“This wangye is convinced that there must be a misunderstanding in this matter, you can’t convict your eldest brother just because of the monk’s words, right?”
Gu Zezhi chuckled, and the sound disappeared with the wind in a blink of an eye.
In Duan Wangye’s ears, this laugh seemed to carry a hint of sarcasm.
Gu Zezhi said calmly, “Father, you said that the heir should not be condemn just because of the servant’s words, and now you said that the foreign monk’s words were misunderstanding, if this was the case, then since father said eldest brother is innocent then his innocent.”
“Zezhi!” Duan Wangye’s brow furrowed even more, thinking why Gu Zezhi wouldn’t listen to him.
Gu Zezhi didn’t want to hear any more nonsense from Duan Wangye, and immediately added. “I already have a title, so you no longer have to worry that I will ‘steal’ the title of your heir. Father, if you have nothing to do, go back to the western border early and in the future, I will live in the capital forever.”
