Medical Princess - Chapter 282
Chapter 282 The First Accident
Although Qin Wanru still was a child, she was more slender than before and looked like a woman now. The dress even highlighted her advantages and sent out her mature charm, making others feel that she had grown up.
In fact, it wasn’t the best time of a girl but Qin Wanru’s gorgeous look still amazed others! After their amazement, those servants turned to focus on the dress!
“Madam Dong is really good at clothing collocation! It is perfect!” Qingyue continued to praise.
“The whole outfit is perfect! I suppose that the clothes made by Butterfly Clothing Shop could sell well! Then we will make a lot of money!” Yujie’s eyes narrowed as smiling brightly, seeming that she had seen the view that Butterfly Clothing Shop was so busy and many people were paying for those clothes!
“The last owner of this shop gave us these clothes. I will let Madam Dong contact the master and ask him where he purchased them. Then we can purchase more!” Stroking the dress and the gauze around, Qin Wanru thought that they might not look so nice if they were separated.
However, if the gauze and the dress were put together, they looked dreamy and fanciful, making the one who dressed them seem to stand in the mist.
“Yes, my lady. I will inform Madam Dong of this!” Qingyue answered and was ready to leave and look for Madam Dong in that she knew the one who could follow Qin Wanru to the royal palace was Yujie.
When she was ready, Qin Wanru then went for Old Grandma to take leave. Shui Ruolan was with Old Grandma and she kept nodding with satisfaction. She also thought that Qin Wanru looked gorgeous in that dress for the color suited her while her skin color was suitable for this dress.
Qin Wanru’s skin was white while her lips were red, which made others feel that she was a little bit coquettish. However, this dress made her look like a fairy and her decent behavior swept away her coquettish charm but added some elegance and dignity. With this visual impact, people would glance back at her and her dress.
She seemed to be dancing with the dress fluttering. Butterflies seemed to be flying while she was walking.
“Is your jewelry a little bit monotonous?” Old Grandma also satisfied with her dress but when seeing Qin Wanru wear the set of opal, she seemed to not like them.
She preferred those jewelries with redder color because she thought that wearing in red could bring good luck.
“No, grandma, they look nice! They are very pretty!” Qin Wanru smiled and replied as she was shaking her earrings.
This set of jewelry was not bright in that she didn’t want to. If the color of the jewelry was too bright, others would only focus on the jewelry but not the dress.
Qin Wanru quite liked them because they were very exquisite.
Old Grandma looked at her jewelry again and thought though they did look simple, the dress made up. Since Qin Wanru liked them, Old Grandma finally smiled and agreed.
There was a large and comfortable cart waiting outside the mansion. The logo of Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion was put in a central place. Although it looked simple, this cart was very large and very comfortable, which could match Qin’s Mansion.
Generals always liked those carts like this. Although they looked simple, they looked powerful.
Qin Wanru got on the cart with Yujie. Then the cart turned and moved forward and drove along the Zhuque Avenue, the biggest and busiest avenue in the capital city.
Zhuque Avenue was the biggest road in the capital city. One end of this avenue was the main city gate while the other one was the main gate of royal palace. The avenue was busy all the time and it was busier today because there were too many carts moving towards the royal palace to attend the banquet.
A continuous line of gorgeous carts was moving along the Zhuque Avenue. They could also see some young handsome masters passed by their cart by riding a horse.
It seemed that not only ladies would attend the banquet but also some young masters.
Yujie quickly put away Qin Wanru’s set of needles and sat beside the window, looking at those carts and horses continuously passing by. As they drove slowly, many carts drove faster and overtook them along the road.
Heavy curtains on the cart were lifted up and there was only a layer of gauze left. Young ladies enjoyed crowds. They had stayed in their court for a very long time so they wanted to take a look through the gauze when it was a really rare chance for them to walk out.
However, it was windy in winter. The wind sometimes blew up the gauze curtain and showed the red lips and white skin of a young lady, which attracted many young masters to get close to those carts and to take a look at the lady clearly!
Qin Wanru’s cart was among the throng of carts, moving forward slowly and not conspicuously!
Yujie reached out and grasped the gauze, trying to not let the gauze flap up and to make people inside the cart be able to see clearly through the gauze. The wind was strong but Yujie was strong too. Grasping the gauze would not exhaust her at all. She even was able to chat with Qin Wanru while watching outside.
Suddenly, the cart stopped.
“Second Lady, something happens!” The coachman’s voice came from the front.
“What?” asked Qin Wanru.
“I don’t know. It seems that two carts collided!” Standing on the shaft of a cart, the coachman tried to check what happened in front of them. However, they were far away from that and he couldn’t see clearly through the throng of carts.
The cart stopped and then the other carts around them and behind them also stopped. Everyone was wondering what happened. Some servant girls got off the cart and went forward to see what on earth was going on.
“Lady, I will follow them to see what happened!” Seeing other servant girls get off their carts, Yujie quickly said to Qin Wanru.
They didn’t know when they could move and whether the avenue was blocked totally while they were sitting in the cart.
“Hold on!” Shaking her head, Qin Wanru answered.
“Lady, then let me go there to check the situation.” The coachman’s voice came again in that he also saw many cart drivers go to the front and take a look.
“Don’t panic. Just wait!” Qin Wanru’s words came from the cart and sounded calm.
As soon as she finished saying, a thump came out and the whole cart shook. Yujie was scared and quickly held Qin Wanru, fearing that her lady would hit the carriage.
“Then What is it this time?” Yujie asked a little bit angrily.
“Second Lady, a man hit our cart!” The coachman’s voice came from the front.
“What?” Not understanding what he was talking about, Qin Wanru frowned and asked.
“Second lady, it is this man who hit our cart!” Glaring at the beggar in front of him, the coachman answered angrily.
“No! No! Please let me go! I didn’t intend to hit your cart! Please let me go! Second Lady!” It was a fifty- or sixty-year-old beggar. He came from the side of the road and it seemed that he wanted to go across the street. However, it just turned out that he hit the cart of Qin’s Mansion. Now he was sitting on the ground, crying loudly.
People around all got stunned and turned their focus on the old beggar.
They all were trying to figure out what happened in the front and nobody knew how this old beggar turned up. Seeing this old beggar crying pitifully, everyone looked at Qin Wanru’s cart in a disapproving way and began to discuss.
Yujie lifted the curtain up and bent forward to take a look at the old beggar who hit their cart by himself. Then she said impatiently, “Take him aside!”
The coachman jumped down the cart to hold the old beggar when hearing Yujie’s words. However, it seemed that the old beggar hurt heavily and he couldn’t pull the old beggar up! Then the old beggar burst out crying again, seeming that the coachman hit him again.
“That hurts! That hurts! Ow! My bone must get smashed! Please let me go, Second Lady! My bone has got smashed and I really didn’t intend to hit your cart just now!”
The old beggar cried loudly, which even seemed that it was not he who hit the cart but it was Qin Wanru who hit him deliberately and tried to take him aside regardless of his injury.
People around began to say that it was Qin Wanru who threw her weight around. Even though he was a beggar, he was a man and nobody should despise him and just take him aside!
Some other ladies from aristocrat families even lifted up the curtain and tried to figure out who was in that cart.
“Yujie, you now get off, take him aside and give him some money!” said Qin Wanru. Since it had come to this, she couldn’t ignore anymore.
Although she knew clearly that it was this old man who hit their cart deliberately and he wouldn’t get hurt so severely. However, people here didn’t know this!
People in the cart were almost young ladies and masters from aristocrat families in the Zhuque Avenue today. If Qin Wanru still ignored the old man and just leave him there, making others really believe that it was she who threw her weight around, things would definitely get complicated.
Yujie got off the cart and helped the coachman take the crying old man aside when a good-hearted man found a chair and let the old beggar have a seat.
Yujie took out a little purse from her arms and handed it over to the old man. She smiled and said kindly, “Sir, you’d better see a doctor with the money my lady gives you. Although you hit our cart, we also felt sorry that we shouldn’t park there!”
Yujie actually explained the whole story and pointed out that it was the old man who hit their cart by himself and it was not Qin’s Mansion’s fault!
“I, I can’t walk!” A hint of greediness flashed upon his eyes. The old beggar quickly took the purse and stared at Yujie pitifully while pointing his leg.
The coachman quickly touched his leg which led to the old man’s cry again and then he immediately drew back his hand out of scare.
“There is a hospital in the front and you can go there! You will see it by taking a few steps forward while holding this old man!” another good-hearted man said.
“Right, it is just there! Take him there! It seems that his bone is broken. Young people have to take a rest for a hundred days while he is quite old. It might be difficult to recover when you go there late!” someone answered.
The hospital was on the corner and it was not far because they could see it from here. However, if the coachman and Yujie left, then there was only Qin Wanru left in the cart.
“It doesn’t matter. It won’t take too much time and it seems that it will take a long time to get the avenue unblocked so the cart can still park here!” Another voice came.
The man didn’t say very loudly but everyone nodded in agreement when hearing this suggestion.
Since most people here seemed to stand by the old beggar, Qin Wanru had no choice. Then she said calmly in a low voice, “Yujie, take this old man to see a doctor!”
