Chapter 41: Scared of him
The original owner had already died, and the Wen Mansion only had one adopted daughter, Wen Ruyi, who was highly valued by Old Lady Wen herself.
When Empress Dowager Guo heard about Gu Heng’s decision, she did not oppose it at all but even supported it.
After all, the Wen family is a century-old family with deep roots and is also very prestigious in the court.
After that, Wen Ruyi soon married into the palace as the First Daughter of the Wen family and became Gu Heng’s Empress.
And the tragedy of the Wen family also began.
All along, Wen Ruyi only used the Wen House as a stepping stone for her purpose.
She became the Empress as the First Daughter of the Wen family, but she was not grateful at all. In order to achieve her reputation as a virtuous Empress, she had people fabricate charges to frame the Wen family.
The Wen family’s century-old family was destroyed in one day, while she became the Virtuous Empress of great justice, and was also written into the history books by the Imperial Historian.
The original book tells the story of the heroine’s inspirational comeback, eventually becoming the Virtuous Empress of the generation. The entire book was very cool to read. The Wen family was only a stepping stone for the heroine to become the Empress. There was not much written about the Wen family, and the sacrifice of the Wen family became a matter of course.
Wen Qi Qi leaned against the wall of the carriage to rest and the events of the original book flashed through her mind one by one.
When she was reading the book before, she didn’t find it unreasonable because those events were just for the male and female leads. But now that she has become a part of the Wen family, she feels that this setting is really unreasonable.
Why should the Wen family be sacrificed just for Wen Ruyi’s success?
The good thing is, now that Wen Ruyi has been sent away, she can’t run into Gu Heng again. As long as the two do not meet, then the things that follow should not happen again.
“Miss, we’ve arrived at the Royal Residence.” Lu Qiao’s voice pulled her thoughts back.
Wen Qi Qi organized her thoughts and returned to her usual appearance. Holding Lu Qiao’s hand, she got off the carriage.
Looking at the imposing mansion in front of her, the corner of her mouth curved up.
Although Gu Lin Chao does not like her, he will not make things difficult for her. And living with the title of Regent Consort seems to not be a bad thing.
She has a maternal family like the Wen House to back her up, and a husband like Gu Lin Chao. With the matter of Wen Ruyi temporarily resolved, she really seems to be able to rest easy ……
She carried her skirt and walked up the steps, thinking silently in her heart.
But as she walked, she suddenly stopped in her tracks.
“Miss?” Lu Qiao followed behind her, and seeing her suddenly stop, she was a little unsure.
Wen Qi Qi returned to her senses, “Nothing, let’s go.” But in her heart, there was a hint of complexity.
Because she suddenly remembered that Gu Lin Chao’s end was not good either.
Since ancient times, people who surpassed their masters with their high achievements have not ended up well.
Gu Lin Chao as the Regent with a great heart dedicated himself to assisting the Emperor in creating a prosperous Empire. But Gu Heng’s heart always had jealousy towards him, so later he took a cup of poisoned wine and poisoned him to death.
And that was very late, almost towards the end of the book.
She couldn’t help but sigh in her heart, and when she looked up, she saw Gu Lin Chao coming towards her.
She froze and bowed towards him, “Is the Regent going out?”
“Mm.” Gu Lin Chao lightly responded.
Wen Qi Qi nodded and said nothing more, but now when she looked at him again, her eyes couldn’t help but have more than a hint of sympathy in them.
No matter how powerful Gu Lin Chao is, no matter how much merit he has made for the great cause, so what? In the end, wasn’t he killed by a cup of poisoned wine?
It’s really not worth it!
She shook her head, and could not help but sigh.
