The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 79
Yun Guang was now slightly afraid to meet Qin Jiu, terrified that she would be humiliated again.
One wrong move could be seen as just a mistake, as long as the Empress dowager still trusts her.
Next time, when she sees this girl, Qin San, she would avoid her at all cost.
She averted her gaze calmly, it was hard to tell what she was thinking of.
Not only was Yun Guang there, Qin Xin was also present.
Qin Xin sat next to Empress dowager Liu, smiling brightly like a flower. When she looked towards Qin Gui, his pupils brightened and darkened as they changed.
It was probably because Qin Gui was so accustomed to being inferior and he felt unjust about the fact, so he was like a porcupine.
Qin Xin took a deep breath and held it in, her right hand that was hidden in her sleeve clenched into a fist.
“This painting is really good!” Empress dowager Liu focused on the painting in the hands of a palace maid, and was thoroughly impressed by it, “The Empress of the West looks so life-like, with a compelling aura, wonderful!”
There was a faint layer of golden shimmer on this painting, reflecting on the face of Empress dowager Liu which coated her face with a thin layer of golden powder.
Seeing that Empress dowager Liu loved the painting, Qin Xin’s lips curled slightly, and her beautiful face looked slightly delighted and proud.
Even if the queen slapped her in the face for Qin Gui, so what!? As long as the Empress dowager still likes her, Empress Wei wouldn’t dare to really drive her out of the palace.
Qin Jiu and Xin An came closer, kneeled on their knees and addressed Empress dowager Liu, Empress Wei beckoned them to sit down beside them.
Imperial Noble Consort Liu smiled and said to Empress dowager Liu: “Empress dowager, Sister Xin is so considerate. For this painting, she not only dug through various ancient books, but also traveled to Taoist temples all over the city. This is how she drew this picture of The Empress of the Wes.”
She asked Empress Wei, “Empress, what do you think of this painting?”
Empress Wei smiled slightly, she looked at the painting in the hands of the palace maid, and said: “This painting is really good, and the skills and technique are of a master’s level. I am afraid that no one in the city can do better than this.”
Empress dowager Liu felt very delighted upon hearing what she said, and nodded with a smile on her face: “Yun Guang said that this painting was spiritual, and there would still be hints of aura appearing from time to time.”
While speaking, Empress dowager Liu looked at Qin Xin with a soft gaze, and said in her heart: Yun Guang really wasn’t wrong. Qin Xin is blessed, and her four pillars of Destiny are good, that is why she could paint this picture of The Empress of the West with such a compelling aura.
Half a month ago, when the news about Qin family’s fake daughter first broke out, the emperor had already told Empress dowager the cause and effect of the news, and he also said that he wanted to dissolve the marriage contract between Gu Jing and Qin Xin. At that time, Empress dowager Liu was slightly startled. After all, how could a child that was born to a servant be worthy of the prince, one was just mere dust on the ground, and the other was like the stars in the sky, but Gu Jing didn’t want to do so and came to her for this favour.
Empress dowager Liu couldn’t fight over Gu Jing, so she went to ask Yun Guang to look at Qin Xin’s fortune and destiny.
