The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 322
Duan Wangye looked Gu Zezhi in the eyes who was only three steps away and felt that his son in front of him was familiar yet unfamiliar. The father and son looked at each other, and for a while, Duan Wangye didn’t know what to say.
His third son who just reached adulthood was already more than an inch taller than him, he also always has this faint smile painted on his lips that look as gentle as jade as if he was someone who was easy to talk to, but his brows reflects his full determination like a sword hidden in the sheath.
Duan Wangye understood what Gu Zezhi meant when he said this, his son’s meaning was very clear. He was saying that he would not return to Luan City again, since they had already separated.
For some unknown reason, Duan Wangye’s heart suddenly trembled and his chest felt stuffy as if something had been blocked.
He subconsciously asked, “Zezhi, are you blaming this wangye?”
Gu Zezhi smiled but did not say anything.
Obviously, Gu Zezhi was smiling but seeing his smile made Dua Wangye’s heart feel even more uncomfortable.
“Zezhi…” Duan Wangye hesitated.
Gu Zezhi added, “Father is guarding the border, so it’s not good to be away for a long time, it’s not good for the troops without any commander even a day less.”
Was Zezhi trying to drive him back to the western border?! Duan Wangye stared blankly at Gu Zezhi, feeling that his hard work had been let down.
After a moment of silence, Duan Wangye lightly sighed and said, “Okay, this wangye will go back in a few days.”
Duan Wangye secretly made up his mind that once he returned back to the western border, he would find out everything, and then put the truth in front of Duan Wang Fei and Zezhi, then make them realize how they wronged the heir.
Only in this way can wangfei and Zezhi know how sincere the heir was to them.
With this in mind, Duan Wangye felt a little better and said, “After this wangye returns, you should do your job well in the capital and don’t cause any trouble.'”
“And let your mother… return to the capital as soon as possible. It’s too dangerous outside.”
“Yes!” Gu Zezhi cupped his hand in courtesy, “Father if there is nothing else, we will leave first.”
Duan Wangye looked at Qin Jiu who looked docile on the side and knew that his son was probably shopping with his future daughter-in-law.
The folk customs of Daqi were not as conservative as those of the previous dynasty. So seeing, this engaged young couples go shopping together, as their elder, Duan Wangye was happy to see them together as if remembering the time when he and Duan Wang Fei used to ride horses on the street of the capital when they were young.
Duan Wangye nodded and waved, “You guys go.”
Thus, Gu Zezhi and Qin Jiu led the horses and walked away without looking back.
A few steps away, Qin Jiu let out a long sigh of relief, being with Duan Wangye always made her very uncomfortable.
How should she put it, Duan Wangye’s brain circuit was different from normal people so although she never really had a real conversation with him and just listened to him most of the time, she felt a sense of suffocation that she couldn’t understand.
Unfortunately for her, Duan Wangye was Gu Zezhi’s biological father, so she couldn’t just whip him directly—her hands were so itchy earlier!
Qin Jiu turned her head to look at Gu Zezhi who was beside her and saw a gentle side profile. Under the sun, his well-defined profile glowed with a faint halo making his features more picturesque.
However, in her eyes, Gu Zezhi always hides his emotions so deeply that no could see through him.
As if noticing her gaze, Gu Zezhi turned his face slightly to the side and the moment he met Qin Jiu’s gaze, his long and narrow phoenix eyes showed a little loneliness.
Qin Jiu: “!”
She knew that Duan Wangye had no affection for Gu Zezhi, so Duan Wangye treating Gu Zezhi like this for the sake of the heir seems to have make him sad.
Qin Jiu felt that the golden thigh was really pitiful.
She tilted her head and thought for a moment, then took out a pine nut candy from her purse and handed it to him.
With her eyebrows curved, and her big almond eyes shining brightly looking at him, Qin Jiu said, “Would you like to taste them?”
Gu Zezhi didn’t answer nor pick up the candy, but instead sighed softly, and under the backlight, his reflection looked became even lonelier.
Qin Jiu was afraid that he would be overwhelmed, so she quickly raised her hand and handed the pine nut candy to his mouth directly, and the latter obligingly leaned his head over and swallowed the candy in one gulp. When he closed his lips, the corner of his lips slightly cocked up, and the smile spread to the corners of his eyes.
Qin Jiu: “Is it sweet?”
Gu Zezhi covered his lips with his fist and gave a low chuckle, then nodded and said, “Sweet!”
The smile at the bottom of his eyes ripples like spring water.
Qin Jiu, on the other hand, looked at him with a deeper smile, and felt that she was becoming more and more skilled at coaxing Gu Zezhi!
“I made this rose pine nut candy myself.”
“It’s filled with roses in addition to pine nuts and honey, it smells good and delicious.”
“Do you want more?”
As they talk, the two gradually walked away.
