Medical Princess - Chapter 262
At the sight of this maid, Qin Wanru was clearly about the intention of Duke Yong’s Mansion. Besides, at the thought that they sent the maid here and wanted her to take it over after having a look, she believed they did that in order to send the maid to Qin Huaiyong’s yard.
This maid would definitely cause trouble for grandma, mother and her. By the time, others would only tease her for falling into the trap set by herself. They might also say that she was the one who sent this maid to her father’s yard. If anything terrible happened, it had nothing to do with Duke Yong’s Mansion and Madam Di, because they could shift the blame onto her.
They were so vicious!
“Miss, what should we do? They are going to send this maid to Madam Di’s yard!” Yujie said with her face changing.
“Let them do it. Take things as they come!” Qin Wanru said with a faint smile at the corners of her red lips. She intended to deal with them as they dealt with her. A woman, who came from a good family and knew about the rules and etiquette, was much better than an arrogant and bossy woman, who had lost her reputation!
In this life, from the very beginning, she was no longer the timid and weak-willed girl, and Shui Ruolan was no longer a concubine who could only desperately strive to protect her.
In the competition between two concubines, the more beloved one won.
But in the competition between a wife and a concubine, the winner was uncertain. Besides, she had better countermeasures…
After coming out of Qin Wanru’s yard, the old maid looked helplessly at Zhifang Pavilion and knew that she could not go back. The Second Miss Qin was quite stubborn and did everything as she liked.
Fortunately, her master had expected this possible situation, so her master had told her that she could directly turn to Madam Shui if there was no better way and send the maids to the Qin’s Mansion according to the rules.
The old maid went to Liufeng Pavilion, where Shui Ruolan lived, with the two maids. As expected, she was stopped at the door, and allowed to get in after being asked carefully. The two maids were still left outside the door.
After asking about the basic situation, Shui Ruolan asked the supervisor to register for the two maids. One of them was named Huangrui, and the other was named Hongye. Both of them were sent to Madam Di’s yard to take care of her.
Regarding the rumor of Madam Di’s sickness, since Duke Yong’s Mansion did not say anything about it, everyone considered it true. So it was reasonable for them to send two maids here.
In such a situation, Madam Di could hardly turn around. Shui Ruolan did not need to do anything to deal with her. Nevertheless, it was necessary for her to pretend to be polite to Duke Yong’s Mansion.
At this point, Duke Yong’s Mansion and the Qin’s Mansion had the same intention now.
In this case, Shui Ruolan didn’t hamper the old maid of Duke Yong’s Mansion. After the names of the two maids were recorded, she let them go.
After that, the old maid took the two maids to meet Madam Di. Because Qin Huaiyong had sent someone to tell about their visit, they easily entered Yulan Pavilion where Madam Di lived.
On hearing Duke Yong’s Mansion sent someone here, Nanny Zhou went out of the door to greet them. The old maid entered the room with Nanny Zhou, leaving the two maids outside the door.
Pushing the door open and walking inside, the old maid felt the room was so stuffy, as if the windows hadn’t been opened for long. The air was suffocating and made her feel uneasy in the stomach, as if there was a disgusting smell in it. Although the old maid felt uncomfortable, she didn’t dare to show it on her face.
When they went into the inner room, Madam Di was reclining on the bed. The old maid was shocked. It hadn’t been a long time since she met Madam Di last time, but Madam Di seemed to have been incurably sick with a yellow face. Was she really sick?
“Madam, are, are you really sick?” The old maid said in astonishment.
“Sick? Being locked up in this place for such a long time, how can I not be sick!” Madam Di said with a sullen face. The curtains almost fell completely, without any gust of wind coming in, and even the light was murky, which made Madam Di look lifeless as if her face was covered with a layer of dust.
Only her gloomy eyes showed a trace of frightening chill under the murky light.
“The Old Madam asked me to see you and sent you two maids to take care of you. The Old Madam told you to rest assured and she will definitely think of some way to save you out of here. She also told you not to worry. While there’s life, there’s hope!” The old maid comforted her. She knew Madam Di was depressed at the moment.
Madam Di would really get sick in this way.
“There are a lot of servants in my yard. They can’t get out and have nothing to do. Tell my mother she doesn’t need to send any servants here. If she really cares about me, she should think of some way to make Qin Huaiyong release me!” Madam Di said in a sharp voice, “Being locked up there for longer, I will not only get sick, but even get crazy!”
As she spoke, she reached out from the quilt and scratched a corner of the quilt with her pointed nails, sneering hysterically.
“Okay, okay, rest assured. The Old Madam will think of some way. Don’t worry!” Not daring to disobey her, the old maid had to comfort her.
She then glanced at Nanny Zhou beside her. Nanny Zhou nodded silently, indicating that it was the right way to talk with Madam Di.
On hearing the old maid’s words, Madam Di seemed to have calmed down a little. Although she still looked gloomy, she became more peaceful and asked about the maids, “Why does mother send two maids here? Mother won’t do that for no reason!”
“These two maids are not ordinary maids indeed. The Old Madam specially sent them to your yard!” The old maid lowered her voice.
“What does it mean?” Madam Di rolled her eyes and asked.
“One of them is extremely proficient in massage and is sent here by the Old Madam to serve you and do massage for you, and the other is for general!” The old maid rolled her eyes and said meaningfully.
“For Qin Huaiyong? Are there not enough people serving him now? What’s the point of doing that?” Madam Di said with jealousy and hatred. It reminded her of Shui Ruolan, and she gnashed her teeth in anger.
In her view, she had suffered all this because the trick of Shui Ruolan. At the thought of Shui Ruolan, she wished Shui Ruolan could die in front of her right away.
“Madam, the Old Madam said now you are not around him anyway. In this case, why should you care about how many people serve him now? This Old Madam specially sent this maid here. With the contract of selling herself in your hands, even if she becomes general’s concubine, so what? She has to be obedient to you and help you fight with the Madam Shui!”
The old maid said with sincerity.
Her words made Madam Di fall silent. She scratched the surface of the quilt heavily again with a sullen face, and two threads of the exquisite embroidery were split from the surface of the quilt.
Seeing Madam Di remain unmoved, the old maid continued persuading her. “Madam, why don’t you understand. As long as this girl finds favor with general, your problem can be easily solved. She just needs to speak for you, and you can be released, right? Madam Shui is pregnant now. If general ignores her at this time, you can imagine whether she will have a miscarriage!”
“Get rid of her unborn baby!” Madam Di didn’t speak for a while, and then said with a sneer.
“Yes, we can think of some way to make her unable to deliver the baby or die with her unborn baby during her delivery. Imagine whether she will be in a bad mood and irritated if we upset her by making her discover general has a new sweetheart? By the time, we can play some tricks, and then she will definitely be unable to deliver the baby!”
The old maid said with a smile.
Her words pleased Madam Di. Madam Di leaned back, didn’t seem as hysterically gloomy as before, but said with a ferocious face, “I want the lives of the two b*tches Shui Ruolan and Qin Wanru!”
“Madam, everything is up to you. But now we haven’t succeeded, so you have to bear it and never expose the plan of you and the Old Madam. Sometime later, when Madam Shui is out of favor or has a miscarriage or even dies with her unborn baby, the Qin’s Mansion will be under your control again. Regarding the Second Miss, without Madam Shui, she has to be obedient to you!”
The old maid said.
Madam Di showed a smug smile. The ending mentioned by the old maid was of course her favorite. But she then withdrew her smile. “What made my mother believe the girl can definitely find favor with Qin Huaiyong?”
“Madam, do you want to have a look?” the old maid said with a smile.
Madam Di nodded, and the old maid turned to go out. She soon brought a maid in.
After coming in, the maid respectfully bowed to Madam Di, and then stood aside. She looked extremely decent with good manners without looking around after standing aside.
“She is from a good family?” Madam Di looked up and down at her and asked.
The old maid looked at the maid with a smile. The maid stepped forward and replied with her head down, “Madam, I’m not from a good family, but an innocent maid from a brothel redeemed by the Old Madam!”
The so-called innocent maid was a girl from a brothel without prostituting herself. Nevertheless, she knew about everything about serving a man with various skills.
“An innocent maid looking like a girl from a good family?” Madam Di frowned, and looked up and down at the maid in front of her. The maid didn’t look like an innocent maid from a brothel anyway.
“I have been redeemed by the Old Madam for several years. The Old Madam sent someone to teach me. Every word and deed of mine are taught by the Old Madam!” The maid didn’t look seductive, but acted decently. She only showed some tenderness when raising her eyes.
She was appropriately charming without being coquettish, slightly shy and enchantingly beautiful.
Madam Di was very satisfied with her. After marrying Qin Huaiyong for many years, she certainly knew that Qin Huaiyong didn’t like the kind of brothel women and had mentioned that brothel women were too seductive. When they were in Jiangzhou, Qin Huaiyong had always led a clean life and never visited the brothel.
He also had no good impression of the brothel!
The maid in front of her looked like a girl from a good family, but was actually tender and charming. Qin Huaiyong would definitely like the maid. Shui Ruolan had got old anyway. How could she compete with this maid?
“Okay, just leave her here!” Madam Di was very satisfied, but suddenly thought of something. “My mother has prepared it since so many years ago. Why has she done that?”
The old maid waved her hand, and the maid respectfully went out with decent manners.
Seeing her get out of the room, the old maid lowered her voice. “Madam, stop asking about it. This maid is not originally prepared for you, but the Old Madam couldn’t bear to see you suffer, so she picked a maid from them for you.”
Her words startled Madam Di. Picking a maid from them meant there was more than one maid. “My mother has trained not a few such maids?”
