The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 51
The Great Qi’s court spent three-long darkest years under his reign, until the hero and heroine worked together to regain the power.
Gu Zezhi naturally died a horrible death like a villain.
Qin Gui never thought that the person she met in the small county would be the future regent who would strike terror in everyone’s heart.
“…” Qin Gui wanted to cry but had no tears.
Immersed in grief over the ruthless destiny, Qin Gui did not notice that Gu Zezhi had approach two steps closer and casually caught the orange osmanthus that was about to fall on her temple with his right hand.
The orange osmanthus was pretty small, just the size of his fingernails. But it set off his white and shiny jade-like skin. The entire scene was indescribably beautiful like a painting.
Qin Gui, staring at him in a daze, forced a smile which was more ugly than crying.
The other ladies present here looked at these two back and forth. Their expressions were even more subtle and complicated than Qin Gui’s.
Gu Zhezhi was a nobility. He was the only son of King Duan. Even Gu Jing, who was the prince, had to address him as Royal Uncle.
The question hovering in their mind was why Gu Zezhi knew a wild girl of the Qin Family?
Princess Yingluo and other noble ladies secretly exchanged glances. They wanted to ask but they were afraid of Gu Zezhi’s identity, and dared not ask.
Gu Jing looked back and forth between Gu Zezhi and Qin Gui, his eyes flickering non-stop.
Qin Family’s matter had long spread throughout the capital. He naturally was well aware of it.
Especially the fact that the empress let Qin Gui stay in the Fengluan Palace for so long and then asked Madam Tai to enter the palace to take her in. Who knows what’s going in her mind!? Could it be that she did this to deal with me!?
Recalling that day when his mother kept kneeling in front of the Fengluan Palace for a day and night straight, allowing the people, who came in and out of the palace, to look at her wantonly, Gu Jing felt suffocated as his body became stiff.
Originally, he came to Shenghua Pavilion specially today to support Qin Xin, lest Qin Gui bully Qin Xin with the protection of the empress.
But now, Qin Gui had addressed Gu Zezhi as elder brother. Then, how should I address Qin Gui!?
This is a mess!
Gu Jing’s mind was in a turmoil!
However, in Qin Xin’s eyes, it appeared as if Gu Jing was staring at Qin Gui intently.
Qin Xin slowly followed Gu Jing’s gaze to Qin Gui. The girl before her seemed familiar yet unfamiliar. Qin Gui’s slender figure seemed to be coated with a light golden powder under the golden sunlight, which emphasized her beauty even more so. She was exuding an unspeakable noble spirit that was overwhelming her.
It gave her the impression as if Qin Gui was born to be a nobility while she could only worship her humbly!
Qin Gui was struck with panic.
In the previous life, the person who married Gu Jing and became the second prince’s concubine, and finally became the royal concubine was Qin Gui.
In this life, she had replaced Qin Gui and was offered to marry the second prince.
In fact, she knew that the reason she was decreed by the emperor to marry Gu Jing even after the Qin Family’s decline, was only because she was Empress Wei’s niece.
When Empress Wei was still a crown prince concubine, she joked with her sister Wei that if Wei gave birth to a girl, Empress Wei would marry her eldest son to her. Later, the eldest prince died and this agreement was lost.
Later, the emperor followed the original agreement and offered her marriage to the second prince.
Qin Xin was afraid of Qin Gui’s return, afraid that she would rob her of everything.
Qin Gui was Empress Wei’s niece and Empress Wei would definitely help Qin Gui.
