Medical Princess - Chapter 156
Chapter 156 “With all My Heart! Let’s Flee Away!”
Qi Tianyu didn’t know that he had been watched by people of Qin’s Mansion. Staring at the beautiful clothes in front of him, he was hesitant!
“Should I break off with the Qin’s Mansion?”
After thinking for a while, he let his servant take the clothes and headed to Qin’s Mansion with him.
When he arrived at Qin’s Mansion, he visited Qin Huaiyong first out of courtesy. After a short talk, Qin Huaiyong let an old maid take him to meet Qi Rongzhi.
Qi Rongzhi lived in a guestroom. As she was female, she lived in the one closed to the Chuihua Gate. Many people had seen Qi Tianyu following the old maid and some even reported to Qin Yuru.
Qi Rongzhi was in a bad mood. When Qi Tianyu came in, he saw her servant girl, Chun Yi who knelt on the ground crying. Qi Rongzhi seemed to get mad again as she looked unhappy.
“Bring some tea for my elder brother! Now!” Qi Rongzhi kicked Chun Yi and shouted, “Stupid girl!”
Chun Yi quickly stood up with her red eyes and backed away in a hurry.
Chun Xi then brought a cup of tea to him.
Qi Tianyu sat beside and let his servant put the clothes on the table.
Looking at these gorgeous clothes, Qi Rongzhi was very pleased. She reached out and touched the clothes. Then she stared at the lacework and the embroidery. She was so satisfied that she smiled brightly.
“Thank you elder brother!” Seeing Qi Tianyu taking out a jewelry box from his pocket, Qi Rongzhi smiled so brightly and reached out. When she took the box, she found that the jewelry was of latest style, which were like those Qin Yuru wore on head these days, even better than those. Her eyes lighted up.
“Rongzhi, you are now living in Qin’s Mansion. You couldn’t act like being in our home. Even though the lady of Qin’s Mansion is not good, you have to bear it. It is father and mother’s wish. Understand?”
Qi Tianyu found that Qi Rongzhi was in a good mood now and people in this room were all their trusted followers. Thus, he said to her directly without any worry.
“I know. I know I have to choose a, eh, a good…” Qi Rongzhi said with her face turning red. She hummed and hawed. Her mother had kept telling her this before she came to the capital city.
She needed to make a good engagement with Qin’s Mansion’s help after she arrived in the capital city.
“Therefore, you have to pay attention to your words and behaviors. You couldn’t have a quarrel with Qin’s sisters. You are now living here so all your behaviors couldn’t make them unpleasant. Otherwise, I couldn’t help you as I am not here!” Qi Tianyu told her sister again.
“Elder brother, does Qin Yuru tell you something?” When Qi Rongzhi heard Qi Tianyu’s words, her smile disappeared.
“No, she doesn’t. It is you who have to figure out your situation clearly. You must remember that you couldn’t fight with Qin’s sisters again before you have a good engagement. You don’t have to worry about Wanru as she is a child but, you must be careful of Yuru!”
Qi Tianyu warned Qi Rongzhi.
“Okay, brother. I know. Don’t worry. I wouldn’t cause any trouble! And I wouldn’t have a fight with Qin Yuru!” said Qi Rongzhi. She knew this clearly so she would prefer to be in a sulk these days rather than have a fight with Qin Yuru.
She could bear it! She could bear anything for her marriage!
She didn’t understand until her nanny who followed her to the capital city told everything to her very clearly.
“That would be great. I don’t want to stay here for too long so I leave now. If you need me, just let the servant write to me.” Qi Tianyu stood up, thought for a while and then said, “You could also turn to second brother.”
“Qi Baiyu? Come on, elder brother. What could he do? The only thing he could do is to climb over the wall and play with Qin Wanru. Moreover, now we are not in Jiangzhou. Qin Wanru might even not want to play with him even if he finds her!” Qi Rongzhi said enigmatically.
She always despised this half-blooded brother. She even used to treat him like a servant in her mansion.
Hearing Qi Rongzhi’s words, Qi Tianyu knew that he couldn’t explain to her. He frowned, turned around and then left without any words.
Qi Rongzhi’s mind was full of those clothes and jewelry. She even didn’t see him off. She then took the clothes and tried on them in her room.
When Qi Tianyu walked out Qi Rongzhi’s room and turned a corner, he ran into Qin Yuru.
Qin Yuru, in a light mint green dress, stood at the end of the gravel road, looked at him with her slightly red eyes. She clenched the handkerchief tightly in her hand. She looked so melancholy and weak.
Qi Tianyu stopped at a distance. He stared at Qin Yuru with his deep eyes and didn’t walk close to her.
“Brother Tianyu!” Qin Yuru turned quickly and ran to him. She looked so surprised that it seemed that she didn’t expect to meet him here.
“Lady Qin!” Seeing her coming, Qi Tianyu made a bow with his hands folded in front and answered.
“Brother Tianyu, why, why would you call me like this?” Qin Yuru looked so sad that she was ready to cry. Standing in front of Qi Tianyu, she seemingly didn’t know what to say but only feeling sad and grieved.
“Lady Qin. It is, it is the best way!” Shaking his head, Qi Tianyu looked somber and said. He set his eyes on the ground in front of him, showing his politeness and alienation.
In terms of the appearance, Qi Tianyu was much more handsome than Di Yan. He was tall and strong and they were childhood sweethearts to each other. Thus, Qi Tianyu was very special in Qin Yuru’s heart. Moreover, they even had an engagement before when there was no news coming from the capital city. Qin Yuru did want to marry him at that time.
She broke the engagement later because of the order from Duke Yong’s Mansion.
She even didn’t feel sad after she broke the engagement as she thought that Qi Tianyu would always listen to her even when she had engagement with Di Yan. However, when seeing Qi Tianyu trying to disown her, she was flustered.
Her eyes really turned red now. Even though they were still in the yard, she didn’t care too much. She headed forward, grabbed his sleeve and then burst into tears. She cried, “Brother Tianyu… I don’t, I don’t want to be like this!”
“Lady Qin, now it is the best way for us…” Qi Tianyu paused as he didn’t expect that Qin Yuru would lose her head. He then quickly reached out, took her hand away from his sleeve and said calmly.
“Brother Tianyu, I don’t want to be like this… I don’t want you to treat me like this… You are always my Brother Tianyu!” Qin Yuru finally lost control and burst into tears. Her tears kept dropping. She seemed to be so weak that she leaned in his arms. If she didn’t catch Qi Tianyu, she would nearly collapse uncontrollably.
Now she only felt sad. “How could Brother Tianyu treat me like this! How could he treat me like a stranger!”
Qi Tianyu knew that it was impossible to push her away. Looking around, Qi Tianyu took Qin Yuru and walked to the back side of the artificial hill.
Although they were not standing on the main road, it would be inappropriate to be seen by others.
When they got to the back side of the artificial hill, his servant checked the crossroad and found nobody carefully. Then he walked across the road and stood behind a tree to stand guard.
“Brother Tianyu! Brother Tianyu!” cried Qin Yuru. Qin Yuru never felt so heartbroken before. She knew there was nobody here so she held Qi Tianyu tightly and cried.
Qi Tianyu stood and let her hold him. He set his eyes on the face with tears streaming down. Although he once loved this face in the past, now it seemed that it was nothing more than this. He even wanted to laugh because of this funny crying face. He nearly couldn’t help laughing.
He closed his mouth so tightly that he could try not to laugh.
“Fine. Don’t cry. You couldn’t help it!” Qi Tianyu sighed and put his hand on Qin Yuru’s shoulder slowly. He patted Qin Yuru to comfort her and said softly.
“Brother Tianyu, I don’t want to marry other people. I only want you… I want to marry you!” Thinking how soft Qi Tianyu was, Qin Yuru gradually felt sad. She even thought that Qi Tianyu was a perfect man. However, she found herself couldn’t bear that this softness and gentleness wouldn’t belong to her in the future.
She had never thought that Qi Tianyu would alienate her. A nameless sadness arose in her mind when she saw Qi Tianyu.
“You, want to marry me?” asked Qi Tianyu. His eyes were still deep while he looked soft.
“Yes! I want to marry Brother Tianyu! Let’s flee away! Far away from here! Nobody would find us! Nobody could know where we are! We could live a happy life together forever!” Qin Yuru cried loudly, holding Qi Tianyu tightly.
She even felt that she treated Qi Tianyu with all her heart at this moment. She could give up everything and leave with Qi Tianyu. She wanted nothing but only Qi Tianyu.
“Okay, how about now?” Qi Tianyu promised her softly.
“Now? Really?” Then Qin Yuru stopped sobbing and her voice lowered. Although she still leaned in Qi Tianyu’s arms, her body stiffened spontaneously. She hesitated and asked, “Brother Tianyu, where would we go? I know nothing. Would I, would I drag you down?”
“No, everything would be okay if I have you!” Qi Tianyu smiled, strangely. Qin Yuru lowered her head now affectionately with all her heart and didn’t see his smile!
“Would, would my father chase us? How about your exam? Are you really going to give up? Would I really drag you down?” Qin Yuru raised her head and asked carefully.
“Then, then what should we do?” asked Qi Tianyu.
“I, I don’t know. I just want to be with you. I don’t want you to alienate me. I, I don’t want to leave you but I don’t want to drag you down. Brother Tianyu, what should we do? What should we do?” Qin Yuru felt more and more melancholy, seeming that she was the most persistent and infatuated woman in the world.
It seemed that she even believed her lie!
However, the pain in her eyes was true.
“Then, we would talk about it later. If you don’t engage with someone else and I pass the exam, I would come to your mansion to propose to you again,” Qi Tianyu said slowly in a soft voice just like when they pledged to each other in Jiangzhou.
Upon hearing it, Qin Yuru felt so excited. “Brother Tianyu, is it true? Will you come here and propose to me openly again?”
