The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 325
Gu Jing clenched his fist tightly as he looked at the mansion in front of him.
He remembered that this was the mansion left behind by the former right imperial governor when he was appointed to his post. As far as the eye could see, it was deserted, with broken tiles and rotten walls, grass and trees growing wildly; no one had lived here for at least three years, it was old and dilapidated, even though it was managed by the imperial government.
He is the prince and a prince’s residence, so although this mansion was regulated under the imperial government but this was only a residence that was awarded to a former governor during the reign of the previous emperor, and no more than an ordinary three-building mansion.
His imperial father told him to live here, but how could he live here!
Moreover, apart from the palace maids and servants he used in his palace before, he couldn’t bring anyone out.
There were no stewards, no guards, no gatekeepers…there was nothing but just an empty mansion, not to mention money to renovate the place.
If this was done among common people, it would mean that the father had kicked his son out of the house.
Just thinking about it, saddened Gu Jing. He devoted himself to Daqi and exhausted his energy, but his imperial father treated him as a useless waste son, moreover, those courtiers also acted according to the circumstances. Today, when he moved out of the palace, no one came to congratulate him.
“Your Highness…” A young attendant beside him could also see that Gu Jing was in a bad mood, but standing like this dumbfounded was not good.
The young attendant was about to persuade Gu Jing to settle down inside when he heard a cold male voice from behind. “I have heard that Your Highness the Second Prince is moving in today, and I have come to express my congratulations.'”
Gu Jing’s body stiffened and immediately recognized the owner of the voice, and turned to look.
Seven to eight steps away was where Yelu Luan could be seen, dressed in a blue lapel robe as he strode towards his direction with his head held high and a sinister smile on the corner of his lips.
With his arrival, the atmosphere froze.
Gu Jing: “!”
As far as he knows, his father has sent people to the northern border to deliver the peace agreement between the two countries, while Yelu Luan was temporarily placed under house arrest by his imperial father in the Siyi Pavilion, until the wedding date.
How did Yelu Luan get here?!
The young attendant felt that Yelu Luan was not friendly at all, so he stood guard in front of Gu Jing, but the latter waved his hand telling him to back down and saluted to Yelu Luan, “Prince Yelu, I was also looking for a chance to find you and go to Siyi Pavilion.'”
“Really?” Yelu Luan smiled that was not a smile, “I thought the first thing His Highness the Second Prince wanted to do when he saw me was to have me sent back to Siyi Pavilion!”
Gu Jing looked at Yelu Luan and said, “Prince Yelu, I’ve been wanting to explain to you for a while now that I was unaware of the incident and it wasn’t supposed to be like that, I also didn’t know in advance that Yu Fuyun had gone to the Northern Border…”
Remembering the scenes in the imperial study that day, Gu Jing’s eyes flickered and immediately changes as he secretly recited Gu Zezhi’s name bitterly: “Damn it, Gu Zezhi deliberately made enemies for him on purpose!
While Gu Jing explained, Yelu Luan listened as the sneer on his lips getting thicker and thicker.
In Yelu Luan’s case, he had already suffered a loss once at the hands of Gu Jing, so of course he would not be foolish enough to trust him again.
He has already been tricked once by Gu Jing and Gu Zezhi, and this Gu Jing was even more infuriating than Gu Zezhi. In the beginning, he made a bold statement, gave way to them in every way, and promised various conditions only for the sake of peace between the two countries. He even agreed on future cooperation, not to mention Gu Jing behaved too sincerely, so he really believed him. But this time would be different, he wouldn’t allow Gu Jing to be the only one playing tricks all the time.
Thinking about it, Yelu Luan still felt aggrieved, making his chest throb again.
After suffering a loss in Gu Jing’s hands, Yelu Luan was not foolish enough to believe whatever Gu Jing says.
The sarcastic sneer remained plastered on Yelu Luan’s lips as he said, “Your Highness if you were me, would you believe it?”
“…” Gu Jing paused.
He had to admit that if it were him, he probably wouldn’t believe it either.
Seeing Yelu Luan didn’t believe him, Gu Jing also began to become impatient. He also had a rough time these days and has no mood to coax others.
But he still patiently added, “Prince Yelu should have seen how my imperial father treated me, believe it or not, the prince can decide for himself.'”
For this peace talk, for the cooperation with Yelu Luan, the price he has paid was already high enough!
Gu Jing’s eyes were deep as he clenches his fists in the wide cuffs, then released and clenched again.
Yelu Luan silently stared at Gu Jing with his sharp eyes as if they were trying to penetrate him, and a moment later, his gaze turned to the dilapidated house behind him, pulled out another sneer, and nodded, “Okay, I believe you.”
Seeing that the other party finally believed him, Gu Jing finally breathed a sigh of relief. He has nothing now, so although Yelu Luan was about to become a hostage prince in their country, he was still ultimately the second prince of Northern Yan, and may have something of use!
Yelu Luan waved to Gu Jing and said, “Your Highness, I have one thing to tell you…”
Gu Jing took two steps closer to him, and Yelu Luan lowered his voice and said, “It’s like this…”
His words only went to this and the corners of his lips spread a sly smile as he pulled his right hand out of his sleeve with a dagger gleaming in his hand.
This dagger stabbed at the upper part of his thigh with a lightning flash…
At this moment, time seemed to have stagnated as the surrounding palace people watched with disbelief.
The blood quickly overflowed from the wound, dying the clothes red and the scarlet blood continues to drip onto the ground below.
