Medical Princess - Chapter 309
“Yes, show it to us!”
“Just compare them! There is a secret mark on each handkerchief!”
“Yes, it’s right at the corner. We can see it after pulling off a short length of thread!” said several Young Madams who were familiar with the handkerchiefs of Qiyu Pavilion.
On hearing the words, everyone naturally looked at Qin Wanru.
Among the crowd, Wang Shengxue wiped his cold sweat secretly, revealing slightly complacency in his eyes secretly. Fortunately, he had a plan B in case the plan A didn’t work, otherwise he would have failed.
Qin Wanru raised her eyes to look at the crowd calmly, and smiled slightly. “You don’t need to look at it. I also bought my handkerchief in Qiyu Pavilion!”
She said that directly without any evasion. Her slim figure stood there elegantly, as if she wasn’t talking something suspected by others. Many Madams looked at Qin Wanru in astonishment.
Admitting that this handkerchief was also bought in Qiyu Pavilion was equivalent to admitting that what Wang Shengxue said was true. Anyone who got involved in this kind of thing would have her reputation ruined. If she was lucky enough, she could marry Wang Shengxue. Nevertheless, she wouldn’t have a high status. A lady eloping with a man should be considered a concubine, and a lady legally marrying a man should be considered a wife. This was known by all aristocratic families.
Was this Miss from Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion really young and ignorant, or did she arrogantly ignore it?
“My master is not afraid to show it. You can tear apart the handkerchief to have a look, and I will tear apart my master’s handkerchief to show you!” Yujie took the handkerchief from Qin Wanru and said in anger. She then pulled out a hairpin from her bun to raise a corner of the handkerchief and immediately pulled off a short length of thread.
She pulled the thread till the end of the thread was loosened, and a secret mark was exposed. It was a very small embroidery pattern consisting of the characters “Ningyuan” and “second” which was extremely small.
The handkerchief in a Miss’s hand was also torn apart. It was embroidered with the characters “Ningyuan” and “first”.
The handkerchief in Yujie’s hand was taken by another Miss. After comparing them, the Miss said in astonishment, “One is embroidered with first, and the other is embroidered with second. They are both from Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion!”
“No matter they were bought the first time or the second time, both of them are from Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion. Isn’t it enough to prove what I said is the truth? Second Miss Qin, you sent someone to ask me to come over but frame me up now. What do you mean by doing that? Are you going to find someone better than me? ” Wang Shengxue sneered. Today he must frame up Qin Wanru in any case.
His sister was framed up to the current situation by Qin Wanru. His aunt had told him that if he failed to trap Qin Wanru this time, his sister would be doomed and probably could never show up in public again.
Even for his sister, he couldn’t let go of Qin Wanru.
As a man, he was not familiar with the handkerchiefs of Qiyu Pavilion and not clear about the inside story. Seeing the mark of Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion on both of the handkerchiefs, he thought the result was certain, so he said something more suggestive!
The statement of finding someone better reminded others of some rumors of Qin Yuru. It was said that Qin Yuru had broken the promise to marry Qi Tianyu in order to marry into Duke Yong’s Mansion. So Wang Shengxue meant that he had an affair with Qin Wanru long ago?
Everyone looked scornfully at Qin Wanru. Some of them were sneering, some were jeering, and some were watching the fun!
Seeing these various gazes, Qin Wanru said lightly, “I heard that Qiyu Pavilion has an account book. Different buyers should sign their own names even if both of them come from the same mansion. I remember that I just bought the handkerchiefs there once. Regarding the other one who also bought the handkerchiefs there, we can send someone to Qiyu Pavilion to check it out!”
“Send someone in your mansion to Qiyu Pavilion to check the account!” Yujie said pulled the old maid of Duke Xing’s Mansion and said to her in a sharp voice without any fluster.
Seeing Qin Wanru and Yujie intend to present the evidence, many people look skeptically towards Wang Shengxue. If it was found out that the handkerchief wasn’t bought by Qin Wanru, the meaning behind it should be further pursued.
“Go check it. I only know that I bought the handkerchiefs there once! I don’t know where childe Wang got this handkerchief!” Qin Wanru said with calm eyes. She rolled her watery eyes, with a trace of arrogance in the ripples of her eyes.
Wang Shengxue was a little flustered, and his face slightly changed. He really didn’t know about the details of the handkerchiefs, so he was a little flustered for a while.
The old maid of Duke Xing’s Mansion was also a little flustered and said with tremor, “I, I can’t make the decision…”
“Then go find someone who can make the decision. As a supervisor, you dare to take charge of this kind of thing. I thought you are the Madam of Duke Xing’s henchman in charge of all affairs of the backyard!” Qin Wanru said with increasing coldness in her eyes.
Even if the old maid was really Madam of Duke Xing’s henchman, she would not dare to say that she was in charge of all affairs of the backyard!
“Check it out and clear up my master’s reputation!” “This childe jumped out to stop my master and said that he would tell my master about the truth of my master being framed up Miss Wang. Unexpectedly he has a treacherous intent. Since he mentioned the handkerchief, let’s check who bought it. The one who bought it must be the one who asked childe Wang to come here! ”
Yujie said with hatred.
She could now be sure that this handkerchief was one of those handkerchiefs the First Miss gave her master. No wonder the First Miss kindly gave a batch of handkerchiefs to her master. However, the First Miss did not know that these handkerchiefs were in Miss Qi’s hands, while her master just kept one of them.
Because of this handkerchief kept by her master, her master had deliberately asked her to go to Qiyu Pavilion and buy a few more handkerchiefs. Her master usually used the handkerchiefs she bought later.
“Go and ask Madam of Duke Xing to come here!”
“Ask Madam of Duke Xing to send someone to find out who bought the first batch of handkerchiefs of Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion!”
“The Second Miss Qin should have been wronged. We can know the truth after finding out who bought the first batch of handkerchiefs!” …
Seeing Qin Wanru calmly request to go to Qiyu Pavilion to find the evidence, many people thought that she should be wronged and unconsciously stood by her. Several Young Madams even spoke for her.
Wang Shengxue’s face turned pale. He didn’t expect that there would be such a big change. He secretly gnashed his teeth. Knowing that he couldn’t give up at this time, he instantly urged the old maid in anger. “Hurry up!”
“Wait a second. I bought the handkerchief. What happened?” Before the old maid answered, a voice suddenly came from outside the crowd. Everyone looked back, only to see Qin Yuru slowly walking here with a haggard look followed by a maid. She was out of spirits with a pale face, which made her facial features that were originally brilliant look gloomy.
“Second sister, what happened?” Qin Yuru walked into the crowd and forced a smile. No one saw her hand holding the handkerchief tightly in the sleeve. She wouldn’t have come out at this time if it was not absolutely necessary.
But the crowd had directed the spearhead at the one who went to Qiyu Pavilion to buy the first batch of handkerchiefs. It was not difficult to check it out. With the account book in Qiyu Pavilion, she couldn’t deny it even if she wanted to.
Qin Yuru had actually been here long ago, hiding behind the crowd to watch the fun. But now she had to stand out. She was flustered, but had to clench her teeth to hold on. Fortunately, she didn’t look well today, otherwise she would inevitably give herself away.
“Big Sister, do you know who bought this handkerchief? This childe Wang insists that I sent a maid to give him this handkerchief!” Qin Wanru sneered.
“A handkerchief from Qiyu Pavilion?” Qin Yuru seemed to just see the handkerchief in the hands of others and asked in a low voice.
“It is indeed a handkerchief from Qiyu Pavilion!” Qin Wanru nodded.
“I, I bought this handkerchief, but didn’t I give all the handkerchiefs I bought to you? Second sister?” Qin Yuru seemed to be dumbfounded and asked with blink.
As Wang Shengxue heard her words, his eyes lit up. There seemed to be a turnaround!
“Big Sister, you gave me the handkerchief? When?” Qin Wanru also seemed to be dumbfounded. She turned to look at Yujie and whispered, “Do you remember it?”
“Second sister, you have such short memories. When we’ve just moved to the capital, I sent you some handkerchiefs after returning from outside, didn’t I?” Qin Yuru said with a smile.
Qin Wanru still looked blank. Others looked at her and Qin Yuru and then looked at Wang Shengxue with puzzlement in their eyes.
The First Miss of the Qin’s Mansion meant that her sister did have such a handkerchief and Wang Shengxue didn’t lie?
“Miss, I remember it. At that time, the First Miss did send some handkerchiefs to you!” Yujie had seemingly thought of it, stamped her foot and said.
“Look, now we’ve found the truth. We don’t need to send someone to Qiyu Pavilion to check it out. Second Miss Qin, do you still insist that this handkerchief has nothing to do with you? First Miss Qin can also prove it!” Wang Shengxue felt complacent. He raised his eyebrows, taunted Qin Wanru and squinted at Qin Wanru with a sneer. “Second Miss Qin, do you still want to say that you’ve never met me and wouldn’t give me a handkerchief?”
He said that to slander Qin Wanru.
In this case, Wang Shengxue believed that Qin Wanru couldn’t clarify the matter even if she had plenty of mouths. Thus, he could say anything as he liked!
“Big Sister, do you also consider me the one who gave the handkerchief to childe Wang?” Qin Wanru didn’t panic, but said with an increasingly cold smile.
“I, I don’t know!” Questioned by Qin Wanru, Qin Yuru muttered and hesitated. Staring at Qin Wanru, who looked calm, with uncertain eyes, Qin Yuru did not dare to give an affirmative answer.
“Big Sister, do you still have this kind of handkerchief?” Qin Wanru looked at Qin Yuru, and smiled naturally. The handkerchief Qin Yuru had shown to Qin Wanru should be among that batch!
“I, I have only one piece left, and have given the rest to you! You… should have known about it, right?” Qin Yuru stammered and replied quickly.
“First Miss, the reason why my master doesn’t remember it is that she has instantly handed on the handkerchiefs you gave to Miss Qi without seeing them clearly!” Yujie was so angry that she couldn’t bear to hear it anymore. “The handkerchief in my master’s hand was bought by herself in Qiyu Pavilion when we went out and passed by Qiyu Pavilion. It has nothing to do with the handkerchiefs you gave!”
Her word was so shocked that everyone widened his eyes in astonishment.
“Does, does it have something to do with this Miss Qi? Was it… sent by her?” Wang Shengxue panicked and then became anxious. He only felt the cold sweat on his back and almost answered instinctively.
He hadn’t even figured out who this Miss Qi was!
