The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 56
“Alright, then I shouldn’t have to worry.” Qin Jiu sighed relievedly.
What does that mean? ! Those noble ladies and men were slightly confused.
They have all heard of the Qin family’s scandal, saying that, that year, the young girl that was given birth by the first wife, Wei, was accidentally lost when they were travelling somewhere, and she was never found since then. That time, if it wasn’t because lady Su, who wasn’t the Marquess’s wife at the time, was reluctant to send away her second daughter that she just gave birth to secretly during the mourning period. After hesitating again and again, she then brought the second daughter who was raised outside into the mansion under the identity of the first wife’s eldest daughter. But who would have thought that the young girl by the main branch who got lost was found again after 14 years. So, the two cousins could only return to their original identities.
Honestly, this story had already been discussed for several days in the capital. If it weren’t that Qin Xin would become the second prince’s future concubine, this rumor would have spread even rapidly!
Everyone looked at each other puzzledly.
But what does Qin Jiu’s remark mean? What happened to the righteous Marquess and his wife?
Qin Xin’s expression changed when she suddenly was reminded of something.
Just when Qin Xin was about to speak, Qin Jiu took the lead before her, and said anxiously: “……Second sister, don’t you know? The Lee’s had murdered someone and fled the capital, the yamen had already issued the arrest warrant.”
“……” Qin Xin’s hand trembled, her pupils shrank sharply.
Father and mother killed someone? !
She doesn’t believe her!
Her parents are kind people, they have been managing their own small business, how would they kill someone!
“You……” Qin Xin wanted to say that she was talking nonsense, but after saying one word, she then gulped down the next two words abruptly, and changed her words, “What does this have to do with me?”
“Huh?” Qin Jiu tilted her head innocently, “Nothing to do with you?”
She smiled slightly, this smile looked so disgusting in Qin Xin’s eyes.
Qin Jiu continued: “Actually, I think priest Yun Guang’s fortune telling skills are really inaccurate.”
“Otherwise, how would you misread the second sister’s fate?”
“Second sister, don’t you think so too?”
Qin Jiu stared at Qin Xin deeply, Qin Xin’s expression darkened, and she felt nervous: Why did Qin Jiu deliberately mention her parents in public? Is it possible that she wants to reveal her real identity?
How dare she?!
Was she not afraid that she would be blamed by grandmother, and that the Qin family would kick her out?!
Qin Xin’s gaze turned darker and darker, as dark as a deep whirlpool.
“Priest Yun Guang.” Qin Jiu looked at Yun Guang again, her apricot eyes were both dark and bright, and said intently, “Look carefully again, whether my second sister has a noble or poor fate, isn’t it impossible that I am the only one fated to be a “lonely and cursed star?”
“Enough, third sister.” Qin Xin felt uneasy, but her face didn’t show it at all, she smiled and stretched out her hand to hold Qin Jiu, “Priest Yun Guang just wanted to be helpful.”
“You can’t say that.” Qin Jiu smiled, gently getting rid of Qin Xin’s hand that was holding her, “Second sister’s painting is to be given to the Empress Dowager’s as a birthday gift at the Qian Qiu Festival. If the second sister ‘also’ had a poor fate, wouldn’t it be adding bad luck to the Empress Dowager?”
The quarrels between the two sisters naturally fell in the eyes of the others, they were suspicious about what was happening.
