When she heard this, she almost dropped the cup out of her hand and said, “What?”
Wen Ting Xuan pursed his lips, “I was surprised when I heard it, but it’s true. Yesterday, the Emperor was attacked by assassins and was saved by Wen Ruyi. The Regent was in search of the Emperor, and even went to the village manor last night. You can ask my brother-in-law.”
Wen Qi Qi was shocked for a while.
She didn’t expect that she had sent Wen Ruyi away from the Wen House, but things still went according to the original book plot.
Wen Ruyi actually met Gu Heng at the manor, and this time, she even entered the Palace earlier.
Although she did not enter the Palace with the status of Empress, she still won the eyes of Gu Heng and stayed in the Palace.
However, there is no way to avoid the situation.
And she, too, would she also follow in the footsteps of the original owner?
Wen Qi Qi’s whole body was chilled.
She thought she had escaped a calamity and plotted to send Wen Ruyi away, but in the end, it was a waste of effort.
“What’s wrong with you, Qi Qi? Why do you look so pale?”
Wen Ting Xuan’s worried voice came, and only then did Wen Qi Qi come back to her senses, she wiped her face and shook her head, “I’m fine.” After a pause, she turned her head towards Lu Qiao and said, “Go outside the door and keep watch, don’t let anyone come near.”
Lu Qiao nodded and quickly walked out.
Wen Ting Xuan frowned and asked, “Are you worried that your dream will become a reality?”
Wen Qi Qi nodded, “Yes.”
Wen Ting Xuan said comfortingly: “Don’t think of things that badly. Although Wen Ruyi is now in the Palace, it is still hard to say what will happen in the future. She may not necessarily become the Empress, and our Wen family may not suffer this calamity.”
Wen Qi Qi smiled bitterly in her heart.
How could she say that it was not a dream she had, but the plot of the book.
If they had followed the plot in the book, none of them would have survived.
But Wen Ting Xuan was right, she shouldn’t think so badly about things. The sky is the limit, she shouldn’t give up until the last moment.
She clutched her fingers and pondered for a long time before finally looking up, “Second Brother, you’re right, but just in case, we can’t just sit around and wait for death.”
Wen Ting Xuan asked, “What do you want to do?”
“We must, at the very least, have the strength to stand up to people.” Wen Qi Qi said slowly, “If that day comes, we need to have the strength to save the whole family. Second Brother, from today onwards, you have to secretly organize your forces. Cultivate forces that can be used for us, so that in the future, perhaps in times of crisis, we can use them.”
The heart of Wen Ting Xuan was astonished and understood, “This should not be difficult.”
“That’s good, I’m counting on you, Second Brother, for this matter.” Wen Qi Qi paused and said with a serious face, “Second Brother must not take it lightly anymore.”
When Wen Ting Xuan heard this, he was a bit sheepish, and knowing that she was referring to the matter of the manor, he promised, “Don’t worry, I won’t be careless again.”
Wen Qi Qi’s lips twitched and she wanted to scold him again, but after thinking about it, she gave up. Because even if it wasn’t this time, Wen Ruyi would surely find another opportunity.
In the meantime, she turned to say, “Besides, I will find a way to draw the Regent in and get him on our side.”
Wen Ting Xuan looked at his sister’s determined eyes. He didn’t want to discourage her, but after some hesitation, he reminded her, “You don’t have to force yourself, if it’s too much, I’m afraid it will backfire.
But you and the Regent are husband and wife. As long as the Regent is here, I believe Wen Ruyi will not dare to do anything to you. Just be the Regent Consort, and if one day, our Wen House is hit by a big disaster, don’t get involved. Take care of yourself and find a way to extricate yourself.”
Warmth crossed Wen Qi Qi’s heart. This second brother was actually thinking of her.
How could she be indifferent to such a good family member and keep herself out of it?
