Medical Princess - Chapter 104
Chapter 104 She Was So Bold
“What’s wrong? You met someone?” the young man with a cold face asked without stopping.
“I seemed to see someone I know!” The quirky boy, who was younger than the man, stared at the room upstairs. If he was right, the girl came out from that room.
The cold-faced boy didn’t care about what he just said.
The waiter continued to take them to their private room, but when they just walked past Qin Wanru’s room, the younger boy suddenly opened the door of the closed room.
The grim-faced boy stopped unpleasantly and rebuked him in a low voice, “Stop it.”
“Big brother, I met a friend! Let’s share a table with her!” The younger boy was not so fastidious, pointing at the room inside.
In the private room, Qin Wanru was still holding a cup of tea in her hand. She was startled by the movement of the door being opened. But she quickly regained her composure. Her eyes fell on the face of the grim-faced boy, then she lightly frowned. She thought that he was familiar somehow. But she didn’t know him!
When she looked at the young boy striding in recklessly, she couldn’t help frowning.
“Second Miss Qin, may I share a table with you?” The little boy walked straight in before Qin Wanru had said anything. He just pulled up a chair next to her and sat down.
So, he was just asking. That didn’t mean anything even if she said no.
“How can you be so rude? Come out of there, little brother!” said the young man in a cool, dignified voice. Then he glanced at the delicate face of Qin Wanru, thinking that this young lady looked like she came from a well-off family. Why didn’t she have a servant by her side? Then it hit him that her maid might have just walked away because his fourth brother had seen her maid outside the room, he said he met someone he knew.
Then he moved, wanting to leave the room.
“Big brother, this is Second Miss of Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion. We’ve met her before!” The younger boy laughed loudly.
“The second daughter of Qin Huaiyong?” The grim-faced boy stopped and thought for a while. Then he walked into the room and even sat down in the chair in front of Qin Wanru.
Qin Wanru pursed her pink lips with her big bright eyes falling on the brothers. Anyone could see that she was not in a good mood.
“Second Miss Qin, you can call me Mr. Xin. This is my eldest brother. Since we knew each other before, I think it’s fine that we have some tea together.” Mr. Xin spoke as if they were old friends. He didn’t take himself as a stranger at all, pouring himself a cup of tea and taking a sip.
A servant standing behind the grim-faced boy came forward and poured a cup of tea for them, and then respectfully moved backward.
“Where have you been? I’ve been chasing you for a long time. I didn’t expect you to run so fast for such a little girl like you. It’s amazing. I’ve never seen such a lady from a well-off family who can climb walls and run so fast!”
Mr. Xin gave Qin Wanru a thumbs up and praised her.
The Capital City, Mr. Xin and the man who looked familiar in front of her. Qin Wanru was suddenly reminded of a name, then it made her blood run cold!
Mr. Xin had to be the fourth son of the emperor.
Her hand firmly holding the handkerchief was shaking slightly. Fortunately, she put her hands under the table. She had already died once and now possessed the memory of a second life. Otherwise, she would have stood up uncontrollably, turned around, and run away.
She remembered who he was.
The eldest brother was Prince Yue, Chu Liuyue, the current emperor’s first prince. He was once appointed as the Prince of the East Court. But he was deposed after two years. And Chu Liuchen became the new prince. Most importantly, it was Chu Liuyue who had given the order to cut her body in half at the waist!
The child… the sixth prince, who had been left for her to take care of, died when he was put in her arms. That woman handed him to her and immediately accused her of strangling the child to death. And everyone around her claimed that the woman was telling the truth.
On that day, it was clear that he was standing on a pavilion not far away and saw everything. But he didn’t help her. He said nothing and made her sacrifice her life and become the first person to be put to death through the torturous punishment of cutting the body in half at the waist. He even drugged her and made her dumb, depriving of her chance to defend herself.
At that time, she didn’t understand. But after she was cut and had one breath left, she suddenly realized it. That woman was with Chu Liuyue. They strangled the child to death and needed someone to take the blame. Without that child, the only remaining bloodline of the emperor would be him. He could also use the emperor to deal with Chu Liuchen!
She was just a pawn to cover up his crime!
She felt that she was in such tremendous pain. Of course she hated him so much.
Subconsciously, she raised the cup in her hands and spilled it on Chu Liuyue’s face with madness in her eyes.
The tea was not hot, because it had been in her hand for a while. But it did startle Chu Liuyue. He saw the tea coming from right above his head and wet his fastidious clothes.
“How dare you! How could you harm the prince? Kneel!” The eunuch who followed Chu Liuyue immediately yelled at her. His face turned pale. Then he hurriedly came over to help Chu Liuyue clean the tea on his head.
“Who do you think you are? Go away!” Qin Wanru pressed down her disgusted feeling and shouted back at them. She fiercely glared at Chu Liuyue with her bright eyes and wasn’t frightened at all.
No wonder she felt that face was familiar. The day she saw him, he was wearing a formal crown and drooping small pearls covered up part of his face.
The room was extremely quiet. Everyone was shocked by the scene!
Then Chu Liuxin seemed to come to his senses. He suddenly laughed out loud. “Big brother, she takes you as a rogue! This girl is not just a young lady from a respectable family. She is really bold. I’ve seen her climb walls and trees. And she even could run away under my watch. Now she even thinks that you are a rogue. She’s so funny!”
Chu Liuyue took the little handkerchief from the eunuch and wiped his face. His eyes fell on Qin Wanru’s face. She had long and curly eyelashes, big eyes full of anger, a fair and pink little face with delicate features, and pink lips without any lipstick on. He had never seen a girl who was so beautiful and delicate.
He didn’t look carefully at her before. Now when he took a deeper look, he was amazed by the way she looked.
But this little girl was too bold. When he thought that she even dared to spill a cup of tea on his face, his face turned cold.
“No matter where you come from, this is Jiangzhou, no one can be outrageous here!” Qin Wanru said coldly and turned around to leave. No one noticed the murderous coldness in her angry eyes.
If there was a dagger just now, Qin Wanru thought that she would stab him, regardless of anything. All the memories flashed back. She was set up and cut to death. All this hate was about to drive her crazy. She couldn’t stay here anymore.
She was afraid that if she lost control of herself, there would be no excuse for her to use as a cover.
“Hey, hey, wait, this…” Chu Liuxin froze when he saw Qin Wanru run away without hesitation. He took a look at his brother, who was all wet, so he didn’t chase after her.
“Big brother, this girl is really bold, but that’s her only problem. Didn’t you see her on the swing before? The young ladies in Jiangzhou are more interesting than those in the Capital City. There are no so many rules for them. They can just do whatever they want. That’s great!”
Chu Liuxin smiled.
“The second daughter of General Qin?” Chu Liuyue raised his eyebrows and asked in a cold voice.
“Yes, she’s so young. I guess she was only 10 years old. She’s fun, bold and good at climbing. Bro, you didn’t see that. She was so proficient when she got down from the tree. She definitely did that a lot. She is so funny!” Thinking of the scene before, Chu Liuxin laughed again.
She really surprised him back then. But today, she also startled him again!
“Let’s go back,” Chu Liuyue stood up and said coldly.
“Hey, I thought we decided to have tea, take a rest here, and enjoy the view of Jiangzhou…” Chu Liuxin’s voice became lower and lower. Then he finally just shut up because it wasn’t convenient for Chu Liuyue to stay here to drink some tea with that messy look.
“You can stay!” Chu Liuyue said, then turned around and strode away.
“You’d better hurry up to change your clothes and have a rest, bro. Be careful not to catch a cold!” Chu Liuxin was so happy when Chu Liuyue let him stay here, so he showed his concern for him and walked him out.
It was incredible that his brother could let him stay. He would be more comfortable without him by his side. But it was a pity that he didn’t know where the girl was going. She must have taken him as a rogue as well.
It was fine. When General Qin came to the capital, he still got a chance to meet her. When Chu Liuxin put things this way, he was also not so anxious to see Qin Wanru.
Chu Liuyue ignored his hooting, striding downstairs with his men.
“Your Highness, should I ask someone to grab her?” a guard hurried to Chu Liuyue and said in a low voice.
“No, it’s OK.” Chu Liuyue shook his head.
“Right.” Although the guard felt a little weird, he still moved backward.
“Miss, why did you come?” Yujie was surprised when looking at Qin Wanru. She rushed back while carrying a cake and came across Qin Wanru on the road.
“Let’s go home.” Qin Wanru looked behind her. No one was chasing her, she was so relieved and she sneered.
She only looked like a child now. Chu Liuyue cared so much about his reputation, so he would not do anything to her. Besides, it was them who were being impolite. And they even barged open the door of her room. With all that, he couldn’t say anything if she misunderstood them and spilled water on his face.
When returning home, Qin Wanru went to Qin Huaiyong’s study first, but she didn’t expect that she would meet Nanny Zhou at the door of the study.
