The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 50
His smile, voice, and demeanor were all gentle but Qin Gui couldn’t help but think of the night in Yaoqing County, when he asked if she wanted to travel with him.
Qin Gui only felt her scalp tingle.
“How can I!?” Qin Gui smiled more sincerely than him, looking at him with her big black and white eyes, unblinking, “I am so happy to see Big Brother. I am so happy that I can’t even move my hands and feet.”
“So it was like that.”
Xiao Ze looked at this double-faced girl with interest.
She has grown a lot more lively in the half month I have not seen her. Her eyes are bright and she seems to be in high spirits. There is a trace of deceit and valiance in her glance.
Her sincere words and the forced smile on her face made Xiao Ze want to tease her.
The nearby second prince, Gu Jing sized up Qin Gui with a strange look.
This was the first time he saw Qin Gui. Qin Gui’s appearance was a little similar to Empress Wei. He immediately recalled the recent rumors and guessed her identity.
But why would she call the third young master of King Duan brother!?
“Royal Uncle Ze.” Gu Jing asked Xiao Ze nonchalantly, “This lady is…”
Gu Jing’s address to Xiao Ze surprised Princess Yingluo and others in the water pavilion even more. They glanced at each other; they became more and more curious about Xiao Ze’s identity.
In the Great Qi Dynasty, only a few young scions could be addressed as Royal Uncle by the second prince!
“His Royal Highness.” Princess Yingluo had a vague impression of Xiao Ze. She asked, “Is this the third son of Duan Royal House?”
Gu Jing said with a smile, “That’s right.”
Qin Gui was completely dumbfounded. Her eyes were almost ready to pop out.
She kept blinking for a long time; she had lost her wits.
She finally knew who Xiao Ze was!
Xiao Ze, my ass!?
He is clearly surnamed Gu. His full name is Gu Zezhi. He is the third prince of Duan Royal House, and the future regent.
He is the biggest villain in this Golden Age of Proud Phoenix!
In the novel, he was narrow-minded, unpredictable, and his means were even more cruel and ruthless. Because King Duan refused to remove the concubine’s son from the heir’s position and let him be the heir, he killed his father in anger and fled. He wasn’t found for two years.
Duan Royal House was then inherited by Gu Chenzhi.
Two years later, Gu Chenzhi was ordered to enter the capital for the Empress Dowager’s birthday but he was killed on the way instead.
Gu Zezhi, who had been missing for two years, appeared again and beheaded his eldest brother, Gu Chenzhi.
This incident immediately caused an uproar in the dynasty. The emperor was furious. Gu Jing, who was the crown prince at that time, was ordered to lead the imperial army to King Duan’s fief and take down Gu Zhenzhi. But he suffered heavy losses against Gu Zezhi instead; the entire army was wiped out.
Gu Jing was also captured by Gu Zezhi. He almost died in his hands.
Not only that, but after that, Gu Zezhi even led an army to force the palace under the banner that he was dutiful to the throne and coming to rescue.
The emperor was so angry when he heard this news that he had a heart attack and died.
Gu Zezhi established Gu Jing as the new emperor. He controlled the entire court using the emperor and became the regent of the Great Qi.
In the next few years, Gu Zezhi controlled the court as the regent, persecuting the faithful and honest, and indiscriminately killing the innocent. The new emperor, Gu Jing dared not speak.
The entire court was filled with complaints.
