Medical Princess - Chapter 126
“I do have something to beg you, childe!” Qin Wanru decided to tell him the truth. It was better to tell the truth in front of him.
“What is it? Tell me, but I cannot guarantee that I will surely help you!” Chu Liuchen asked with interest, and his voice was very sweet.
But what he said was not very pleasant to hear.
Fortunately, Qin Wanru knew in her heart that he was supposed to be like this, so she didn’t feel very uncomfortable. It would be strange if he were willing to help others.
Qin Wanru calmed down and carefully asked, “I have a witness. Can I lock him up here?”
Chu Liuchen raised his eyebrows and snorted. There was a mocking glow in his eyes. He said rudely, “Why would you lock your witness up in my mansion?”
His voice was still gentle and pleasant, but what he said hit Qin Wanru so hard that her face turned red. She was glad that no other people were there, otherwise she would be embarrassed for a while.
Although she knew that this man was not one who would agree at will, and she had psychologically prepared before she came here, she still couldn’t control her red face.
Being composed, Qin Wanru said gently, “Childe, the Tang Qianyan seems to be getting better and better.”
“So what?” Chu Liuchen squinted impatiently, and his lazy voice was full of a chill that made people feel cold in their heart.
Qin Wanru now was sure that he had to be tempered before she came in. No wonder that Xiao Xuanzi saw her as a distinguished guest.
Who didn’t want a person who could block his anger?
But just because she had come here, that didn’t mean that she couldn’t leave at will.
“It is said that this flower is still a pot of fine flowers. If it is carefully supported, it may grow into the most beautiful flower in the capital city.” As she spoke, Qin Wanru secretly decided that she would go back to immediately get the flower growers to evaluate if the flower was really such a special and exquisite variety.
If not, even if she had to spend a lot of money, she would buy a pot of exquisite flowers to grow.
“No matter how good a flower is, if it is dead, it’s still a dead thing!” Chu Liuchen snorted coldly and sat up slowly. The reclining teenager had made Qin Wanru feel great pressure. She felt her heart beating more and more hard, especially because of his pretty but cold eyes.
Qin Wanru felt that he was staring at her, which was more like being stared at by a venomous snake, so that she did not dare to move.
Her back began to sweat faintly.
But she repeatedly told herself that Prince Chen in front of her was not the crown prince of the future. He was actually a weak and beautiful teenager who had guards in front of his mansion, which was more for surveillance than protection.
But even though she told herself this repeatedly, Qin Wanru’s heart was still trembling. It seemed that Chu Liuchen’s momentum was more astonishing and colder than that in Jiangzhou.
But as for his childish behavior of sending her fish tanks before, Qin Wanru seemed to feel as if it was a very distant thing.
“Qin Wanru, what expression do you have? Are you afraid of me?” The coldness in the eyes of Chu Liuchen diminished, and a smile slowly spread on his face. For a time, the temperature in the room seemed to warm up a little.
Qin Wanru was nervous in her heart, but that was not obvious in her face. She shook her head with her faintly pink face in front of his somewhat angry eyes. “Childe has helped me several times. If there is a chance, I will repay you. Why would I be afraid?”
“Really?” Chu Liuchen’s gaze almost looked into Qin Wanru’s heart.
Qin Wanru was astonished. She secretly wondered if she could not lie to Chen Liuchen. What was the capricious Prince Chen going to do?
“If I was afraid, I would not have come to your mansion to ask for your help today!” Qin Wanru looked at the strange eyes of Chu Liuchen, and forced herself to answer calmly.
Chu Liuchen looked at her closely and the coldness in his eyes suddenly disappeared. He leaned back lazily, and he even pulled up his two feet. He looked casual as he said, “Tell me. What’s the matter with that man?”
“You also know him. When Madam Di sent him to plot against me, he was sent to the opposite window by your people. Unexpectedly, Duke Yangqu’s Princess and Miss stayed there. Maybe we could use his testimony when we came to the capital this time, but I am afraid that Madam Di would find out about him, so I want to lock him up here!”
As soon as she heard that Chu Ryuchen had given up his insistence, Qin Wanru cleverly told him all of the truth.
“Where is he?” Now, Chu Liuchen was open to persuasion.
“He has been secretly locked up by me in a rented yard, and my wet nurse’s son is guarding him. But it is so easy to find his trace outside…” Qin Wanru said.
“Fine, but the rent…” Chu Liuchen stretched out his hand in front of Qin Wanru’s dull eyes, rubbing his long and moist index finger and thumb together.
Qin Wanru felt her throat become dry and astringent. She bit her pink cherry lips, and her long eyelashes fluttered twice, trying to see more clearly.
She had not seen this gesture before! But as for him, it was an easy and vivid gesture to imagine.
If she had not witnessed this scene in front of her, she would not have connected what it meant with Chu Liuchen in any way. Although Chu Liuchen had many aspects, every aspect he had shown had dignity in his bones. Did she really understand the scene in front of her?
“What? You don’t have money? That is not OK. I don’t offer credit!” Chu Liuchen stretched out a finger and placed it in front of Qin Wanru. His beautiful eyes, like a starry sky, were bright enough to confound all living beings. The beautiful young man with picturesque eyebrows and a bright look on his face immediately made every girl he saw blush.
Qin Wanru was astonished in her heart. She looked directly at his finger, and her attention was only focused on his finger. With his long fingers slowly turning and in front of her wet deer-like eyes, Qin Wanru breathed out a long breath before she said with surprise, “Childe, are you asking me for money?”
“Why? I can’t ask you for money because of our good relationship?” Chu Liuchen evilly bowed his head, and pursed the corners of his pale lips. The smile on his face faded away and he looked unhappy.
Qin Wanru hurriedly shook her head. “I don’t know how much you want.”
“Well, one liang per day is OK?” Chu Liuchen smiled. The handsome teenager bowed his head and showed a harmless smile on his face. The smile on his slight lips showed as if he was gazing at her with affection.
Qin Wanru did not notice it, but he stared at her watery astonished eyes. She almost wanted to make him drink a glass of cold water to wake up. Why didn’t he steal money?
“Childe, I don’t have so much money!” Qin Wanru secretly complained.
She didn’t know how long she would need to hide the cart driver until he was useful. It would cost so much money day after day.
“Qin Wanru, due to our friendship, you can owe it to me!” Chu Liuchen extended his finger and knocked on the edge of the couch twice. His face was full of disgust. “Anyway, you owe me so much already that your life is already mine!”
“…” Qin Wanru bit her lips. “How much should I write on the IOU?”
“Just write a thousand liang for the time being!” Chu Liuchen raised his eyebrows and smiled slightly. Although his face was pale that make him look weak, he was still lively.
“That counts for more than three years?” Qin Wanru thought that even if she were to act slowly, it was unnecessary that it would take three years, so she still wanted to bargain.
“What? You still want to bargain with me?” Chu Liuchen snorted and looked terrible.
“No, I’ll write it outside?” Qin Wanru gave in. She looked around, thinking of the desk outside the door, and cautiously asked.
“Will you write it on my bed?” Chu Liuchen said indifferently, and waved his hand. “Hurry up!”
Qin Wanru had no choice but to step back. She turned around the screen and went over to his desk. When she saw the chaotic bookcase, she felt that there was no room to write. There was paper on the desk, but almost all of it was stained with ink. In this way, let alone writing, she couldn’t even pick out a piece of clean paper.
“What? Do you feel there is no room to write?” The gloomy voice came from behind her ears, and Qin Wanru was shocked. She looked back to see that Chu Liuchen was secretly standing behind her. He looked noble when he clasped his hands behind his back. Except for his smiling but scary face, he looked like a beautiful teenager coming out of a landscape painting.
“Well… How to write?” Qin Wanru braced herself to ask, facing his terrible gaze.
Chu Liuchen suddenly raised his voice and said coldly, “Quickly come in and clean up!”
Qin Wanru was wondering whether he had said that to herself. The door was suddenly pushed open. Xiao Xuanzi hurriedly rushed in. While he replied, he cleaned up with a nimble hand.
His quick actions almost amazed Qin Wanru!
It seemed that Xiao Xuanzi did this often. He cleaned up with one hand and wiped the desk with a wet rag with the other. His skilled hands were almost synchronized.
After that, two little eunuchs came in, each with a wet rag in their hands. They carefully wiped where Xiao Xuanzi had just wiped.
Then the two little eunuchs stepped out uniformly under Qin Wanru’s staring gaze.
She had to marvel at the coordination of the movements, which was so well trained.
“Childe, see, it is clean!” Xiao Xuanzi said fawningly. “Will you meet with Prince Yue?”
“No!” Chu Liuchen replied with a cold face.
“But… but he is Prince Yue. He came to see you out of good intentions. You have to… meet him!” Xiao Xuanzi rubbed his hand.
“Were the two people he brought in my Southern Palace before?” Suddenly, Chu Liuchen smiled gently. His smile was so clean without a trace of dust, but Qin Wanru’s heart was beating fast when she looked at him, so she hurried to lower her head.
“Yes… yes!” Xiao Xuanzi secretly looked at his master and dared not tell the truth.
“Bring in Chu Liuyue and kill the two he brought with him. My Southern Palace is not the place where people can come or leave at will!”
Chu Liuchen’s eyes suddenly turned sophisticated again. With his extremely gentle smile, it made people feel inexplicably cold…
