Venerated Venomous Consort Chapter 1871
Unexpected events accompanied the birth of the prince. Traditionally speaking, the birth of a child with anomalies required the inspection from the Lord. Gu Xijiu was in the mood for it, so she attended.
Her first meeting with the child almost gave her a heart attack. The child was about two weeks old, lying comfortably in the arms of the nanny. Unlike most babies with wrinkled skin, his face was full of delicate features; he was indeed a beautiful baby.
He had a pair of very dark eyes. Their eyes met when Gu Xijiu bent down to take a closer look at him. Surprisingly, he pinched his little lips into a thin line and flushed crimson. He hid his face away, seemingly embarrassed. His look was familiar.
Gu Xijiu directed an audio message to him. “Rong Jialuo?”
The child froze momentarily. Then, he turned to look at her intensely. The look in his eyes surely did not come from an infant.
Gu Xijiu placed her finger gently on his nose. Under the glamorous seven-colored ray, she finally sensed the essence of his soul. It was Rong Jialuo. He had reincarnated and was born again into the royal family. If she was not mistaken, he would still be the eldest prince of the kingdom and would once again retrieve what he had lost.
Only this time, he returned with a different identity. Moreover, he carried his memories from his previous life. Rong Jialuo’s death had always been a great loss for Gu Xijiu. She actually thought that his soul had melted away. To her surprise, he made his comeback.
No matter what, his return had brought great joy to Gu Xijiu.
“The child will have a bright future of extraordinary achievements,” Gu Xijiu made her conclusion.
Such a compliment from The Lord came as a huge triumph to the emperor of the Feixing Kingdom. He bowed and requested for his name from The Lord.
Gu Xijiu then turned to look at Rong Jialuo. He was watching her fixedly with his small eyes. His lips moved a little, struggling to say to her, “Jialuo.” He wanted to be himself.
“The child very much resembles the late emperor. I shall name him Jialuo.”
The emperor was shocked. He was the younger brother of Rong Jialuo. When Rong Jialuo was still alive, he treated his younger brother with care. Indeed, the emperor missed him dearly.
If his child was named the same as the late emperor, would it be inappropriate? He told Gu Xijiu about his concern. She responded, “It does not matter. The name sounds the same but bears different characters. I name the child with the name, in memory of your late brother.”
If The Lord insisted, the emperor would not comment any further. He quickly named his son as Rong Jialuo and ranked him as the eldest prince of the kingdom. He also proclaimed a general amnesty to celebrate his birth.
The life of a common man seemed good, completed with the cycle of birth and death, and even reincarnation. Once reincarnated, one would have nothing to do with the previous life and start anew.
It was a rare visit from The Lord, so the emperor gave her a hospitable reception on her arrival. Many old friends and relatives joined the feast as well. It was a jolly gathering.
Seeing these familiar faces could not help but give Gu Xijiu a sense of emptiness. The place was bustling with life and excitement, but she could still feel a void as if something important was missing.
During the feast, the emperor asked if the Fucang Palace should be torn down for refurbishment. The emperor was, in fact, referring to the residence of Celestial Master Zuo when he talked about the Fucang Palace. Of course, he could not recall who used to reside there.
The Fucang Palace was nothing but an empty building now. The emperor of the Feixing Kingdom wanted to gift the palace to his official. However, Gu Xijiu was reluctant to give it away, for it somehow meant something special to her.
