The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 4
A lot of things happened today. She only got to settle down now. She was so tired that she didn’t even want to move anymore.
When she went to wash up, she looked carefully at her skinny figure. Each inch of her skin contained injuries, old and new. It seemed like her injuries never got to heal as new ones added to the collection. She was extremely skinny. She should be fourteen, but she was so skinny that she only seemed to be twelve or thirteen.
In her memory, her original body was almost beaten every day. She did all the chores at home but she only got a bowl of porridge and half a steamed bun.
She had received her fair share of abuse as a child!
Qin Gui sighed. In the original novel, it talked a lot about the heroine’s grievances and innocence. As for the original body, however, she was the legitimate young miss of a wealthy family but was exiled. Even more, she grew up under an abusive environment. What did she do wrong?
She changed into a clean set of clothes, and then she stood in front of the bronze mirror.
Through the reflection of the bronze mirror, she saw a young lady with pitch-black hair scattered over her shoulders, and a small face. After she washed the dirt off her face, it revealed her perfect features. She had long brows with bright almond eyes. She slightly jutted her full and cherry lips up, revealing two light dimples on her cheeks.
What a pity that due to malnutrition, her skin was rough and her skin was an unhealthy color, making her look less appealing.
She really needed to treat herself well!
Qin Gui lazily yawned. Before her hair was dried, she just plopped herself on bed.
It got darker outside, and the room was silent with occasional rustling of the branches as the wind blew on it…
Through the fluttering snowflakes and the snow, the sound of wind, breathing and footsteps were all combined.
She tried her hardest to run but she didn’t know where to run. However, she was really scared and didn’t dare to stop.
A long arrow broke through the wind and its sharp arrow pierced through her chest.
She clutched her heart with her hands as fresh blood slipped through her fingers, it was dazzling and eye-catching.
She knew that she was going to die.
She gradually fell down. The fresh blood dyed the snow red like blooming plum flowers.
Qin Gui was startled awake. She breathed heavily and quickly, her chest heaving up and down.
Her forehead was drenched in cold sweat, and her clothes were stuck to her back like it was just fished out of the water.
She could feel slight pain in her chest as if it wasn’t a dream that an arrow pierced through her chest and that it did happen.
This was the first time she ever had such a realistic dream.
A sharp arrow piercing her heart…
In the novel, the original body died due to an arrow through her heart!
Qin Gui revealed a cold aura, and there seemed to be a faint metallic scent of blood in the air.
“It must be that I was thinking too much about this that I started dreaming!”
“It must be!”
Qin Gui continued to murmur to herself nonstop. She hugged her head with her hands and ruffled her hair in agitation.
She sat there blankly for a while before climbing out of bed. She lit a candle and poured herself a cup of cold water, drinking it in one gulp. Only then did her mind feel awake.
She was about to go back and sleep when she suddenly sniffed something in the air.
Why did she smell blood?
Qin Gui placed her teacup down. Borrowing the light of the candle, her gaze quickly swept through the room. Her gaze landed on the drawer by the corner of the wall.
This drawer was the height of a person. She didn’t have any luggage, so she didn’t bother to use it either. Therefore, it was just left alone.
Qin Gui’s gaze froze before she said to herself, “I’m so hungry. I wonder if there is any food.”
She draped her jacket over her and was about to walk out of her room nonchalantly when an icy sneer rang in the quiet room.
Without looking back, she ran towards the door. Before she could, a hand quickly reached over from behind her back, blocking her off.
Lightning suddenly flashed outside the window, lighting up the room as well as the right hand pressed against the door.
That was a man’s hand. His fingers were slender and long, his knuckles distinct.
Qin Gui sniffed the air, an intense scent of metallic blood coming from behind her.
The hair on her back stood up and she slowly turned around.
Outside the window, lightning and thunder started successively. Then, it started to pour.
Behind her was a young man with a tall figure and handsome appearance. His pitch-black hair was pulled behind his head into a tall bun. He had smooth skin and his features were even more exquisite and flawless, especially his pair of narrow bright and deep red phoenix eyes. He had thick eyebrows. His eyes were beautiful but sharp and mixed with a tint of severeness.
He was clad in black. But even these ordinary clothes had a difficulty concealing his noble aura.
This young man was definitely not simple.
