Medical Princess - Chapter 152 - My Only and Own Child
Chapter 152 My Only and Own Child
Xiao Xuanzi dare not promise him at this moment because he dare not be presumptuous in Rui’an Great Elder Princess’ Mansion. “Master, how about stopping Second Lady Qin on the road?”
Fearing that his master would do something willfully, he lowered his voice.
“No! Troublesome!” answered Chu Liuchen with his eyes closed.
“Master, I hear that Childe Hao of the Mansion of Duke Xing now lives in Rui’an Great Elder Princess’ mansion. Second Lady Qin also promised Childe Hao that she would visit him from time to time. Rui’an Great Elder Princess also agrees!” said Xiao Xuanzi with his eyes lighting up.
“When?” asked Chu Liuchen with his long eyelashes shaking. He finally stopped asking to let Qin Wanru come here.
“In a few days!” answered Xiao Xuanzi.
“I don’t feel well these days and I fear living alone in Prince Chen’s Mansion. So I want to live in the Princess’ Mansion these days!” said Chu Liuchen, smiling. It seemed that his smile was also in his gentle and soft voice, indicating that he had a good mood now.
“Yes, my master. I then would tell the Great Princess!” Xiao Xuanzi wiped his forehead furtively. Any reason could be reasonable if his master didn’t ask him to look for Second Lady Qin at once.
Everyone knew his master was a willful man who always did whatever he liked. But in consideration of his poor health, nobody would complain.
After asking about Qin Wanru, Chu Liuchen raised his eyes and asked, “Are they still there?” His eyes suddenly turned cold, seeming that a chill pervading. Uncanny hostility haunted in his semi-open eyes, which made him look like another man.
He was not the weak and gentle handsome man now.
“Yes!” answered Xiao Xuanzi very carefully.
“Let them go back!” said Chu Liuchen, waving his sleeve. Although the sleeve was soft, the chill in his eyes indicated that he was serious.
“Let others tell them that I have a headache and want to sleep. Let them be quiet!”
“Yes, master. I, I now go and tell them!” answered Xiao Xuanzi. He blinked his eyes and thought it would be better to tell them on his own.
“Then go! Let them be quickly! If I couldn’t have a good rest, and become sick again, I would report to my uncle later!”
“Yes, yes, my master. I go now and you’d better have a rest!” Xiao Xuanzi kept nodding his head.
Chu Liuchen closed his eyes again and rested his head on the other side of his soft chair, covering with the quilt which Xiao Xuanzi just took for him.
Xiao Xuanzi tucked the quilt again. Ensuring that everything was okay, he then turned around, went downstairs and walked toward the opposite attic. The two bodyguards who guarded the entrance knew him. When seeing he coming and looking at each other, they reached out and stopped Xiao Xuanzi.
“My master has something to tell three princes!” said Xiao Xuanzi. He didn’t break into the entrance but stood straight and bowed with hands clasped, smiling.
Two bodyguards dare not stop him. After they both saluted with the hands folded, one of them ran upstairs quickly and asked Xiao Xuanzi to go upstairs soon.
When Xiao Xuanzi walked upstairs, he found out that the atmosphere was quite good. Three princes talked and laughed. When seeing Xiao Xuanzi coming in, they set their eyes on him.
Xiao Xuanzi coughed lightly, bowed to three princes, raised his head and said, “Princes, my master is sleeping in the opposite building. He said he wanted to have a good rest and hoped you could be quiet. Otherwise, he has to find a place for sleeping in the Emperor’s study-room!”
His meaning was very obvious. When these three princes understood, they all got a little bit angry.
Prince Zhou took the cup near his hand, broke it into pieces powerfully and sneered. “Then I wouldn’t leave today. Just let him kick me off and complain to father. How this sick jerk dare to command us! Just let him know who he is!”
Prince Yue’s face turned livid. The light came in through the window, which made people could see the shadow in his face.
Prince Xin sneered. He was unhappy today and now he forgot Chu Liuchen’s threat. He said sourly, “Now my elder third brother has become more and more arbitrary. Does he own this mansion? If he wants to sleep, then let him sleep. How could he kick other guests off!”
“Three princes, I have told you his words. As for what should do, it depends on you!” answered Xiao Xuanzi, smiling hypocritically. He turned around, went downstairs and left before they said anything and could catch him.
“Soldier! Take the b*stard…” shouted Prince Zhou madly. He was the eldest son of the Queen. How could he, a noble prince, let a servant look down upon him!
“My second brother, do you want to irritate father?” Prince Yue raised his head and stopped him.
“Second brother, don’t be angry. Let’s go!” Prince Xin’s low voice came out.
Then there came a noise that someone was knocking over tables and chairs. Xiao Xuanzi now was downstairs. He looked up and rolled his eyes unconcernedly and walked toward his master’s building.
“These three princes are always willing to be uncomfortable. They do know my master has a rest in the opposite attic but they just pretend that they don’t know and come across. When they are irritated by master’s words, they would always cause such a great noise. Even if they want to irritate my master, they are always the one who would get irritated at the end! Why bother?”
“Every time they would make themselves mad and even hurt. They always suffer losses at the end. Actually, my master is the official royal successor. They are not at all! Even the present Emperor has used improper means to sit in the throne. If without the deceased Queen’s help, he could not have become the Emperor.”
“The deceased Queen owed my master a lot!”
The situation of royal family was too complicated. He, a servant, could not have any comment on something. He just hoped his master could have a good health all the time!
Thinking about the bloodstain which his master hid with the handkerchief, Xiao Xuanzi felt like crying. When he came back, he must ask Doctor Qi, the highly skilled doctor for help to give him a prescription. His master could not get through with this!
Qin Wanru didn’t know that three princes got mad because of Chu Liuchen and caused a messy farce. Now she had returned to Qin’s Mansion with Shui Ruolan. However, she didn’t expect that there was also another big farce in Qin’s Mansion.
They saw servant girls and old maids standing on two sides when they just entered the Old Grandma’s Xinning Pavilion. All people dare not make any sound.
Qin Wanru almost knew what had happened when seeing this scene.
She followed Shui Ruolan and walked slowly.
When they got into the room, Old Grandma at the main table looked bad. Madam Di and Qin Huaiyong were sitting on the both sides while Qin Yuru, beside Madam Di, was crying sadly with her handkerchief covering her face.
Hearing a servant girl reporting that Shui Ruolan and Qin Wanru had come in, Qin Yuru raised her red eyes and looked extremely sad.
When seeing Qin Wanru, Madam Di banged on the table powerfully and looked very serious. “Qin Wanru! Do you still want your elder sister die? Although I am not your natural mother, you should be grateful for the care and love you received from me! How could you be so cold and tell others what happened in Jiangzhou! You almost make your elder sister could not live!” shouted Madam Di.
“Mother!” When hearing Madam Di’s words, Qin Yuru couldn’t help crying, leaned on the table and burst into tears lying on the desk.
Shui Ruolan’s face turned livid and asked, “Sister, what do you mean? Wanru and I went to Rui’an Great Elder Princess’s Mansion and why would she try to kill Yuru?”
Madam Di answered coldly with her serious eyes, “Why? Shui Ruolan, this is not your business but Qin Wanru’s. Just shut up when you know nothing!”
“What do you mean that I know nothing? What is the truth you are saying?” Shui Ruolan said angrily. She knew Madam Di said so deliberately, telling her that she had no right and reason to deal with this. However, how could she just stand by and let Madam Di and her daughter bully Qin Wanru again and again.
Before she married Qin Huaiyong, she had decided to protect Qin Wanru.
“Have you ever thought about the child you raised up would bite you? Have you ever imagined that when the child you raised up gets older would be disobedient and unkind to you?”
Madam Di sneered and said, “Then shut up if you have no such experience!”
She was mocking that Shui Ruolan wanted to get involved in this matter when she knew nothing. She also scolded Qin Wanru and called her an ungrateful person.
“You just go too far! How could you call her, an eleven-year-old girl an ungrateful person? Then what about Yuru? I do know nothing about Wanru’s childhood but now she is my daughter and I could not let her be bullied by others. Please tell us everything that what happened today on earth! Why is reasonable for people of Duke Yong’s Mansion and Yuru to bully Wanru while is totally wrong for Wanru to refute your ideas!”
Shui Ruolan glanced at Qin Huaiyong who was poker-faced and said nothing. Her eyes turned cold. She was not stupid. She learned from Qin Huaiyong’s look that he believed Madam Di and her daughter’s words and supported them.
Now she knew nothing and had no idea to deal with this. So she could only ask about the situation and told them what happened in Rui’an Great Elder Princess’ Mansion when asking.
She supposed that the cause was the event happened in the Princess’ Mansion!
“Shui Ruolan, what are you driveling about? Qin Wanru used her evil mind and did this. Do you want to blame Yuru? It is fine that you didn’t bring Yuru when meeting Rui’an Great Elder Princess today. However, when Yuru went with Duke Yong’s Mansion, did she bother you? Did she trouble you? She is my only natural child!”
When she said these words, she seemed to be wronged and felt like crying. She wiped her eyes with her handkerchief and said, “If something bad happens to her, how, how could I live!”
Qin Wanru sneered in her mind. She stood beside Shui Ruolan and saw Madam Di’s every move very clear. Madam Di pretended to get wronged on the one hand and then glanced at Qin Huaiyong on the other hand. So Madam Di’s only child was Qin Huaiyong’s only child logically. Then this child was the most valuable!
She knew Qin Yuru’s position in Qin Huaiyong’s mind very clear, which she could not compare with. Now Madam Di reminded Qin Huaiyong of this point again and again in order to let Qin Huaiyong suppress her.
“Your own child, right?”
“You just said so as if other families had no their own children…”
