Poison Genius Consort 2: Emperor's Swallow Chapter 15 – Too Smart to Stop
Does she dare? Of course, Gu Feiyan dared, or she would have never made a move.
Initially, she was not in a hurry to clarify the rumors. However, with Wen Yurou courting her own death, if she did not make use of this opportunity, she would truly let down the humiliation and oppression the original owner had once endured!
The original owner was a sick cat, but she was a tiger that could show off her might. It was already good that she didn’t bite. How could she be so easily bullied?
Gu Feiyan ignored Shangguan Yinghong’s warning look and continued speaking with a harmless smile.
“I was ambushed by assassins on the way to deliver the medicine. The Justice Court’s are investigating the matter. The Justice Court’s junior official, Lord Gong, had said to report anyone suspicious. Wen Yurou purposefully spread the rumor which is harming General Cheng’s reputation. What motive might she have? Whether she was ordered by others or not, it’s better to investigate! Senior Pharmacist Shangguan, what do you think?”
Shangguan Yinghong gasped a mouthful of cold air. She was originally frightened and angry, but now she was completely shocked. She had to re-evaluate Gu Feiyan. Not only was this girl bold, she was also very smart!
Firstly, regardless of whether or not Gu Feiyan had committed any evil deeds, such matters could not be openly discussed or criticized. It didn’t matter whether she was innocent or not. Once things went to the Justice Court, Wen Yurou would definitely be treated as a scapegoat and made an example out of nothing. The Wen Family’s background was not bad, but they would definitely not be able to withstand the pressure from the two great generals’ residence.
Secondly, she had just received news from the Great Pharmacist that the Justice Courts suspected that there was a traitor in the Imperial Pharmacy. The moment Wen Yurou was reported by Gu Feiyan, not to mention Wen Yurou, even she herself would be in trouble because she was the one who recommended Wen Yurou to the imperial pharmacy even though she didn’t pass the exam.
Seeing Shangguan Yinghong’s expression changed, Wen Yurou finally realized her fear and quickly explained, “I… I did no such thing! How could I insult General Cheng?! Gu Feiyan, I’m scolding you!”
Gu Feiyan sneered. “Oh, sure you are. You’re scolding me? You’re accusing me of seducing General Cheng into making a mistake, aren’t you? You said General Cheng made a mistake, right? ”
“I, I…” Only then did Wen Yurou remember what she had said. She was so angry and embarrassed that her face turned red. Not knowing how to explain, she could only cast a pleading look at Shangguan Yinghong.
Shangguan Yinghong was also anxious. No matter what, this matter must not blow up. It must be resolved immediately!
She softened her attitude and said earnestly, “Alright, alright, stop fighting. It was just a few angry words, a few quarrels. This matter shall end here so that we will not be laughed at by outsiders! The two of you are in the wrong. Both of you need to meet each other halfway and stop arguing.
“My hand…” Wen Yurou’s eyes reddened and she muttered in grievance.
Shangguan Yinghong pretended not to hear it.
Gu Feiyan did not utter a sound, but her small mouth slowly pouted, clearly dissatisfied.
Shangguan Yinghong was anxious, although she was unwilling, she could only continue to give in. She was not willing to show kindness to Gu Feiyan, but she could only blame Wen Yurou. “Yurou, you were wrong for today’s matter! You aren’t young anymore. You should think about everything and change your temperament as well!”
Wen Yurou felt even more wronged. Holding onto her stiff fingers, tears began to flow out of her eyes.
Gu Feiyan finally smiled. Her eyes were curved. She looked very pretty.
Seeing this, Shangguan Yinhong finally let out a sigh of relief., “Alright, alright. It’s all over now. Go back to work! ”
Wen Yurou was about to leave, but in the end, she couldn’t help it. She turned her head and said, “Gu Feiyan, let’s wait and see! I will definitely make you regret it! ”
There was no such word as ‘regret’ in Gu Feiyan’s dictionary. No matter what, once she decided to do it, she would never regret it!
Wen Yurou left and Shangguan Yinghong also left. The medicine girls all dispersed in groups of two or three, whispering to each other.
Gu Feiyan knew that even if she did not bring the matter to the Justice Courts, she would at least make use of it. She was very sure that the rumors would spread. Soon, the discussion was not about her feeding Cheng Yifei the medicine, but about Wen Yurou spreading rumors.
Everyone in the palace was too lonely and loved to spread rumors to feel better about themselves.
After solving this problem, Gu Feiyan secretly let out a sigh of relief. She was about to take a rest, but the supervisor at the delivery office soon found her and gave her a difficult job…
