The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 83
“The Empress Dowager is right.” Empress Wei smiled and nodded, as if she felt the same.
Qin Jiu had also lived in the palace for ten days. She always followed Empress Wei to greet Empress Dowager Liu, but at that time, Empress Dowager Liu was having some sort of argument with Empress Wei, so she didn’t take a good look at Qin Jiu.
Looking at Qin Jiu before her, Empress Dowager Liu felt that Qin Jiu looked more pleasing to the eye now and said to herself: But she is a smart little girl, it is no wonder that even the emperor praised that this girl was quite decent.
Qin Jiu continued: “The old priest also said that alchemy is the art of the immortals. One must find a Tao master who has unlocked a high level of cultivation and has real talents to perform the alchemy. It’s a pity that there are so many people in this world who have a fake reputation. It is hard to tell who’s the real deal and who’s not.”
Empress Dowager Liu nodded frequently, slightly distracted, it was because of her sharp senses, she was able to invite a world renowned expert like the priest, Yun Guang.
Thinking about it, Empress Dowager Liu felt proud of herself, and held her head high.
“……” Yun Guang remained silent.
If she hadn’t seen how brilliant her way of speech was at their last meeting, she would have thought that this girl was naive and pure. However, it turns out, this girl was the ultimate devil!
Yun Guang felt that Qin Jiu’s words meant something else.
A sneer appeared on the corner of Qin Xin’s lips, she knew what she was doing: Qin Jiu was smart, knowing that the love from the empress alone was not enough, she was deliberately coaxing the Empress Dowager to please her too. Qin Jiu’s thinking was just way too naive.
“Yun Guang,” Empress Dowager Liu turned her head to look at Yun Guang, thinking that she said two days ago that she would head out for a while, but she was reluctant to let her leave, and planned to keep her in the palace for a period of time. I plan to build Xuan Qing monastery, a……”
Before she could finish her words, she saw Yun Guang’s face turn pale, her whole body was trembling, and cold sweat trickled down her forehead…
Others in the hall also noticed that Yun Guang was acting weird, and Imperial Noble Consort Liu called out: “Yun Guang……”
Yun Guang felt pain coming from her abdominal, so she subconsciously covered her stomach, opened her mouth slightly, and her saliva leaked out from the corner of her mouth uncontrollably.
Empress Dowager Liu suddenly thought of something, her eyes opened slightly, and she subconsciously looked at Yun Guang’s slightly opened mouth towards her gums…
Yun Guang’s gums were red and swollen, and bloodshots could be vaguely seen.
Empress Dowager Liu’s eyes widened, and she remembered the story Qin Jiu had just told her.
The old priest said, if the pill wasn’t done right, what was made is not a pill, but poison.
Abdominal pain, spasm, drool, red and swollen gums……
Yuan Guang, at this moment, had the exact same symptoms that the evil poison would bring about as the old priest had described!
Could it be that Yun Guang was also “poisoned inside”?!
When this thought came to the Empress Dowager Liu’s mind, she couldn’t help but turn her head and look at Qin Jiu.
Qin Jiu was also surprised, she looked at Yun Guang, “Priest, what’s the matter with you? Why are you like this…why do you have the exact same expression as Master Cheng?!”
