Medical Princess - Chapter 191
There was nobody outside!
Everyone looked at each other, wondering why she reacted like that. When they thought of that the First Miss Qin was lying here with mess dress, they guessed that if someone had intended to rape her and stunned her when he found that someone had come.
It seemed that this was the only possibility, otherwise she would not look for the man in panic.
They did not know whether First Miss Qin was lucky or not. Fortunately, nothing serious had happened. Although her clothes were messy, they were still on her. People here were clever. At first glance, they all knew that nothing had happened. However, it still would influence the reputation!
Especially, it would greatly influence the reputation of young girls.
“Come and help First Miss Qin. It’s lucky that you’re fine!” Madam of Duke Xing asked servants to help First Miss Qin up and said, as if nothing had happened.
Qin Yuru was fully awake at this time. As she was held and walked ahead, she made a sound in fear when she saw that room, but she could not speak for a while.
“First Miss Qin, what do you want to say? Did you see anything scared? Tell us, and we’ll help you!” asked Madam of Duke Xing with a smile and a kind look.
But Qin Yuru could not say a word. She could not say that she had seen a man in his underwear. For the sake of her fame, she could only say that she had seen nothing.
“Thank you very much, madam. I was drinking tea here, and then fainted.” Qin Yuru’s face was pale and she said in a trembling voice.
But Qin Wanru stopped and calmly said, “Madam, please check that if somebody else was here just now.”
“No one will come here. The women were all at the banquet just now. If…” Speaking of this, Madam of Duke Xing hesitated. Obviously, she thought it might have nothing to do with women.
Qin Yuru’s hands shivered when she heard that. She took the hands of Madam of Duke Xing and said in a panic, “There’s no need to check… the man should have escaped… the man escaped from the back door doesn’t come from your mansion! ”
She was afraid that Madam of Duke Xing would really investigate this matter. Although she only glanced at the man, she knew that he was not a noble young master from an aristocratic family according to his scream. If they did find such a person and found that he was only a servant, how would it end then?
Qin Yuru would rather not find this man.
Others were confused when they saw Qin Yuru was so flustered. Did First Miss Qin come here to see somebody? If not, why did she stop Madam of Duke Xing from finding that man?
But if she really came here to see somebody, why did that man stun her? Or did she pretend to faint?
Things that somebody pretended to faint and coquetted almost happened in the womenfolk place of wealthy and influential families every day, and a few Madams here had seen people pretended to be sick, stupid, and dizzy. Some of them covered their mouths with their handkerchiefs and laughed at Qin Yuru in their minds. It seemed that First Miss Qin had no personality.
They were confused that why such a thing was so coincident even though it happened by chance, but they all were curious when they thought that it might have something to do with the people from Duke Xing’s Mansion.
It was said that the Heir of Duke Xing was young, handsome, and promising. Did it have something to do with him?
But a lot of people thought that it was impossible after carefully thinking about it. The Heir of Duke Xing was quite good, and it was said that he never flirted with women. It should be impossible that he was related to this matter. Were other male masters of Duke Xing’s Mansion related to it? It was said that Duke Xing liked flirting with women. It was unknown whether it was his plan.
Qin Wanru glanced at the people with an indifferent look, and saw all their expressions. She sneered in mind, “It turns out that it was prepared for me.”
“The girl servant and the old maid first would try to get me to the remote courtyard, then the old maid would leave. Yujie would go to fetch my clothes. Then I would be the only one in the courtyard. After that, I would be stunned and thrown at the back door of the courtyard, because I would see something I should not see. Today is the day of the banquet in Duke Xing’s Mansion, so they would not kill me.”
“Then I would look like Qin Yuru, even worse, when I wake up. I may can’t find the girl servant who hits me by the fruit, or the old maid who leads me. At last, they would inevitably say that I come here to secretly see a man. After all, if things go on as they planned, there would be no witness.”
Qin Yuru’s words aroused many Madams’ and Misses’ doubts, which made Madam of Duke Xing angry. She shook away Qin Yuru’s hands, and said with a cold look, “Miss Qin, it must have nothing to do with my family. I’ll ask people to figure it out later, so that you won’t be wronged.”
How could she not know how others thought about it? If Qin Yuru did not say that, others would not doubt Duke Xing’s Mansion. Now after she said that, it really made people think that it was related to a male master of Duke Xing’s Mansion.
One family knew about their own affairs, which was the most annoying thing for Madam of Duke Xing.
“Thank you very much, Madam!” Qin Wanru said before Qin Yuru in a neither humble nor pushy way.
“You’re welcome. This is what we should do. Second Miss, you are Hao’er’s benefactor, so we must put your Big Sister’s affair in mind!” Madam of Duke Xing calmed down, and her face was gentle again. Although she was still unhappy with Qin Yuru, it could hardly be noticed.
Qin Wanru and Qin Yuru changed their clothes. When they returned to the banquet, Shui Ruolan held her hand and anxiously asked in a low voice, “What’s the matter?”
“It’s all right!” Qin Wanru softly patted Shui Ruolan on her hands. Before she left, she told Shui Ruolan not to come no matter what would happen.
She was afraid that Countess Yong would also come and make trouble. If so, Shui Ruolan would be in danger.
As soon as Shui Ruolan saw Qin Wanru, she knew that something had really happened before, but it should not be a big problem. Qin Yuru, who had changed her clothes, closed her mouth tightly with a livid face and said nothing.
The matter happened all of a sudden, so that she still had not figured out who wanted to frame her. She looked at all the people present and turned to Countess Yong. She felt that only Countess Yong was the most credible.
Therefore, she stood up and walk to the table where Countess Yong sat regardless of the surprised eyes of others.
“Aunt!” As soon as she saw Countess Yong, Qin Yuru’s eyes turned red and she called her in a low voice.
When she saw Qin Yuru coming over, Countess Yong stood up quickly, smiled to the Madams around her, and took Qin Yuru aside to talk.
Just now, Countess Yong did not come to the courtyard with others.
Countess Yong said with concern, “Yuru, what’s the matter? What happened just now? I intended to go and have a look, but was stopped by several Madams.”
Countess Yong clearly knew that her mother-in-law valued Qin Yuru very much.
“Aunt!” Seeming to see her own family, Qin Yuru said in a low voice, then rushed to Countess Yong’s arms and sadly cried.
“Don’t cry, what’s the matter? Did the two frame you?” Countess Yong patted Qin Yuru lightly on the back and said as she pacified her.
This reminded Qin Yuru, who then cried and said in a low voice, “Auntie, are they? The girl servant and the old maid are from Duke Xing’s Mansion! ”
Of course, she knew that Countess Yong was talking about Qin Wanru and Shui Ruolan.
Countess Yong said, “There are so many servants in Duke Xing’s Mansion. It’s easy to bribe two. You are so silly!”
Qin Yuru said with great hatred, “It must be them. I was confused that I don’t know anyone here, but why someone framed me. It turns out to be them!” She doubted them at the beginning, but she could not figure it out for a moment, so she was not sure. After hearing what Countess Yong said, she was immediately sure that it was Qin Wanru and Shui Ruolan who framed her.
“Qin Wanru, Shui Ruolan, I will not forget what you did to me today.”
“Don’t cry. It’s not beautiful for a beautiful girl to cry, and Yan’er will think I have bullied you!”
Realizing that her words were useful, Countess Yong continued to persuade Qin Yuru in a low voice.
Qin Wanru drew back her sight and stopped looking at Countess Yong and Qin Yuru. “Needless to say, Countess Yong will tell Qin Yuru that this matter was planned by me and my mother.” Thinking of this, Qin Wanru showed coldness in her eyes.
She was not afraid of being framed by Qin Yuru and Madam Di. Originally, Qin Yuru and Madam Di always wished that Qin Wanru and her mother would die as soon as possible. They had framed Qin Wanru and her mother in Jiangzhou many times, which led them to a desperate situation every time. Qin Wanru did not mind that there would be one more thing that made Qin Yuru and Madam Di hate them.
But she did not want to be a sharp weapon of somebody else!
She was clear that this matter was planned by Countess Yong. But why did Countess Yong know so well about the affairs in Duke Xing’s Mansion? It was obvious that Qin Yuru had seen what she could not say, so that she was stunned.
The courtyard was also strange. The courtyard was close to the back door, and it was convenient to come in and go out. It belonged to neither the inner womenfolk place nor the menfolk place. It was a convenient place to hide something there.
Since there were secrets hidden there, it should not be found casually. If Madam of Duke Xing had not got involved in this matter, it would not have been done!
“In order to deal with me, they actually are willing to expose a secret. It seems that they pay much attention to me and broke a fly upon a wheel this time. Is it not over yet?”
Qin Wanru slightly narrowed her watery eyes, and thought about if there were other possibilities under this situation…
The man sat at the window and asked in a cold voice, “Who is she?”
A fat man replied respectfully, “She, she is the eldest daughter of Ningyuan Army General who comes back to report his work!”
The man repeated without missing a word, “Ningyuan Army General, Qin Huaiyong?”
“Yes. It’s he!” The fat man nodded.
“He’s a good choice!” The man sneered, and his eyes fell on a file on the table in front of him. He looked through it and said, “Have you settled it?”
The fat man quickly lowered his head, and said, “Don’t worry, it’s all settled!” There were not only the lists of the important officials in the court, but also the comments and portraits of some Misses of aristocratic families.
“A picture of your daughter? For me, you have done your best!” The man picked a picture and smiled.
The fat man lowered his head more and respectfully said, “It’s my pleasure to serve you!”
