Fast Through the Villain, Sweet and Wild - Chapter 871
Chapter 871 Occupying the Mountain is King (28)
These three young ladies are really a life-stricken person.
First, he was wronged by others, and suffered a lot in the country. Now he was retired by the royal family and ended his short and miserable life by jumping off the building.
But everyone just sighed and forgot about it after a while.
Luo Qiao, who was still in Beijing and had not left, had just handed over the rights of Luohou Mansion to the court. He was stunned for a while when he heard the news.
Sending someone to the Long Princess’s Mansion to investigate, only to learn that the so-called Third Miss did not come back at all, and that the dead one was just a maid pretending to be.
In other words, the third lady heard that Xiaoyu jumped off the building was false, and the princess mansion did not want a third lady who might have lost her reputation to be true.
Luo Qiao breathed a sigh of relief when he heard his subordinates report the incident.
That’s right, how could a woman like Miss Rong die hastily because of being divorced.
At the same time, he felt worthless for Rong Huang.
The royals are really affectionate, and even their biological daughters can easily give up for a bit of fame.
Luo Qiao threw the long sword in his hand on the stone table, drew out the sweat towel from his waist and wiped the sweat from his face and neck, chuckled, and went to eat breakfast casually.
Thinking of what Rong Huang said to him when he left Qinglong Village, Luo Qiao began to look forward to the next meeting with Rong Huang.
Two months passed in the blink of an eye, and Qiuwei soon arrived.
In order to get ahead and gain fame, men born from poor families have been studying hard for many years, just to take part in the rural exams on this day.
Wang Sheng carried a heavy bookbox on his back and held an oil-paper umbrella in his hands. The familiar companions stood by the Baijiang River and made a wish to the Baijiang River.
Legend has it that there is a White God Empress who lives under the Baijiang River. As long as she stands by the river and makes a sincere wish to Baijiang, the White God Empress can hear her.
During the autumn season, the candidates came to the Baijiang River to make a wish.
Whether it is windy or rainy on this day, they cannot stop their enthusiasm.
The heavy rain poured down like a pouring, falling on the oil paper umbrella, making a heavy ticking sound.
When the wind blew, raindrops fell on the clothes of the scholars, and soon a large area of wetness appeared on their gowns.
The brown muddy water splashed in the puddles on the muddy ground, soaking the cloth shoes.
“Brother Han, have you made a good wish?” Wang Sheng opened his eyes, looked at the tumbling Bai Jiang, and asked Han Sheng on the side.
Han Sheng also opened his eyes at this time and smiled at Wang Sheng, “I only hope that the White God Empress can hear my wish, so that I won’t fall behind again this year.”
Wang Sheng changed his hand to hold the umbrella and smiled cheerfully, “Brother Han will definitely be famous on the list!”
Han Sheng lowered his head and glanced at the soaked old cloth shoes. Just about to say something, he caught a glimpse of something in the light, and turned his head to look at the center of the Baijiang River.
There was something faintly floating in the middle of the Baijiang at the fingertips.
In the sound of falling rain, Han Sheng pointed to the direction of the center of Baijiang and shouted, “Brother Wang, look what it is?”
Not only Wang Sheng, but the candidates who wished by the river saw what suddenly appeared in the middle of the Baijiang River, and they gathered around, very curious about what it was.
“Let’s report to the officials, and let the officials come and see what this is.”
Han Sheng’s proposal was approved by all the examinees present.
Soon people from the government came and sent a big boat down, and several yamen boarded the boat to bring back the things in the middle of the Baijiang River.
Now it was raining heavily, and the water of the Baijiang River was tumbling violently. The big ship was almost overturned by the river several times. Fortunately, the boater responded in time to avoid capsizing.
