The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 49
“His Royal Highness must be here for Sister Xin.” Princess Yingluo teased Qin Xin with a smile, “His Royal Highness is so affectionate to my sister.”
Several other ladies were also envious. The second prince was handsome and had a noble status. Qin Xin was really lucky to have such a husband!
Qin Xin let out a tender snort, “Princess, you are making fun of me again.”
Princess Yingluo beckoned a round-faced servant girl and ordered her with a smile, “Go and tell His Royal Highness that his sweetheart is here. Let’s see whether he will come or not?”
Qin Xin clenched her handkerchief. The smile on her face didn’t show any signs of disappearing.
“…” Qin Gui started having a faint headache.
Who cares whether the second prince comes or not. It will be troublesome if Xiao Ze comes with him! I finally got rid of him. I don’t want to have anything to do with this dangerous guy!
Qin Gui was just about to leave but Qin Sheng asked her in a loud and clear voice, “Third Sister, what do you think of Second Sister’s painting?”
Her words attracted the attention of several other noble ladies to Qin Gui.
Qin Gui was a little absent-minded as she was still thinking about running away. She answered in a very casual manner, “Pretty good.”
She remembered every single detail about Qin Xin’s piano, chess, calligraphy, and painting from the original plot of the novel. Her answer ‘pretty good’ was indeed correct!
“…” Qin Sheng choked on her anger once again. She felt that Qin Gui wasn’t playing by the rules. How am I going to bring her down?
Qin Gui prefunctorily said, “If there is nothing else, I will…”
Before she could finish speaking, the round-faced maid returned hastily and said with an unsteady breath, “Princess, Miss Qin, his royal highness, the second prince and his royal highness, the third prince are coming.”
This maid went and returned in this short span with the second prince was evidence in itself that she had encountered them on road.
Princess Yingluo covered her lips and said with a smile, “What did I tell you, His Royal Highness, the second prince is most interested in Sister Xin. He knew Sister Xin was here and couldn’t wait to come here.”
While speaking, she nudged Qin Xin a little and winked at her.
A natural and elegant smile appeared on Qin Xin’s lips as she went to greet Gu Jing and his team.
Gu Jing didn’t come alone. The third prince, Gu Rui and Qin Kingdom’s heir, Jiang Rao, and others were with him as well.
In the past, when they traveled together, the noble scions were all centered around Gu Jing but this time, the noble ladies in the water pavilion noticed that Gu Jing, Gu Rui, and others were centered around an unfamiliar youth in purple.
He was about twenty years old, handsome, noble and elegant. He walked with leisure and his every gesture spelled nothing but elegance.
Who is this?
Everyone couldn’t help but be a little curious.
“Little Girl, where are you going?”
While everyone was waiting for Gu Jing to introduce him, the purple-robed youth spoke out first. His voice was as gentle as water and there was a smiling look on his face. When he smiled, it felt like a gentle breeze was blowing, giving everyone an indescribable sense of comfort.
Qin Gui, who was slipping out quietly, stiffly put down her raised right foot.
She silently turned around and forced a smile at Xiao Ze, “Big Brother, long time no see.”
Qin Gui addressed him as Big Brother subconsciously. Gu Jing, Qin Xin and others were shocked.
What did Qin Gui say!?
“It seems Sister doesn’t want to see me?” Xiao Ze stood a few steps away, looking at Qin Gui.
