The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 54
Taoist Yunguang looked at the painting and shook her head regretfully, “Who else has seen this painting?”
“Sigh, this painting was originally very spiritual. It had a glimmer of auspicious aura. But now this painting is stained with bad luck, which has made this painting dusty. I’m afraid this painting is not suitable for gifting to the Empress Dowager.”
The water pavilion sunk into silence. A look of incredulity appeared on everyone’s face.
How is this possible? Who is not noble here!?
Wait, wait, wait!
Everyone thought of someone and turned their look towards Qin Gui!
If we talk about who is unlucky here, that would be none other than the bumpkin from the Qin Family!
Qin Sheng looked contemptuously. Sure enough, she is bad luck! We shouldn’t have brought this bumpkin to the mansion!
Taoist Yunguang also followed everyone’s gaze to Qin Gui. Her face immediately darkened.
She raised her right hand and looked at Qin Gui to do some calculation. Her expression grew more and more grave. She then asked, “Were you born in the year of Bing Yin, on the month of Jia Wei, on the day of Xin Chou, and at Ren Yin time?”
[TLN: All part of eight trigrams.]
Qin Gui didn’t answer. But Qin Sheng rushed to answer instead, “That’s right! That’s exactly right!”
Qin Sheng nodded frequently before looking at Qin Gui with an expression on her face as if she was looking at a catastrophe.
Princess Yingluo and the other people all showed admiration. She mumbled to herself, ‘Taoist Yunguang lives up to her name. She actually saw the birth date of Qin Gui in one glance.
Taoist Yunguang calculated on her finger again and sighed faintly, “Unfortunately, her eight characters were a noble girl but she has the fate of lone star of evil gods. It would bring harm to father, mother, husband, son; it will hurt the luck of the entire family!”
[TLN: Eight characters (in four pairs, including the year, month, day and hour of a person’s birth, each pair consisting of one heavenly stem and one earthly branch, formerly used in fortune-telling)]
Everyone gasped. The ladies immediately took a step back, like they were avoiding her.
Qin Sheng nodded hurriedly. “That’s right! Our family was exiled as soon as my third sister was born, my uncle and aunt…”
Qin Sheng stared at Qin Gui fiercely. Her eyes were almost about to pop out. She looked as if realization had suddenly dawned upon her.
So it was like this!
So it turns out that our Qin Family was exiled back then because of Third Sister’s bad luck!
Princess Yingluo and other noble ladies had a subtle look in their eyes. They had all heard that the Qin Family was exiled and had their titles revoked fourteen years ago on the suspicion of treason. It wasn’t until now that the Qin Family had been able to wash away their grievances and regain their dignity.
On second thought, Taoist Yunguang’s prediction of Qin Gui is right on the mark!
Taoist Yunguan flicked her whisk casually, looking otherworldly. She then asked, “Has this girl also seen this painting?”
Qin Sheng hurriedly replied, “Yes, Third Sister has seen it.”
“So that was the case.” Taoist Yunguang said with a sigh, “It’s precisely because of this that the pearl like Queen Mother of the West had gone dusty. Sigh, it’s really a pity.”
Everyone looked at each other.
Just now Taoist Yunguang had said that this Queen Mother of the West was excellent and extraordinary. It even had an auspicious aura!
And this painting was ruined by just a single glance of Qin Gui! How unlucky is this person!?
The girls stepped back subconscious, trying to stay away from Qin Gui.
