Medical Princess - Chapter 387
“Your Big Sister?” Madam Dowager did not understand what she meant.
“Grandma, Big Sister is ill, but her condition cannot be compared with Madam Di’s current situation. Since I will be visiting Madam Di, how can she, as Madam Di’s biological daughter, not go? Even if Big Sister cannot serve Madam Di in person because she is sick, she still has to show her regard. So how about allowing Big Sister to live in Yulan Pavilion? When she sees Big Sister, Madam Di will be in a good mood and she will get better too!”
Qin Wanru said softly.
Qin Yuru did not want to go, but she would insist!
“Allow your Big Sister to move to Madam Di’s place?” Madam Dowager thought for a while and felt that this was a good idea. She nodded and sighed, “That’s okay. Anyway, Madam Di is your Big Sister’s mother. Even though Madam Di brought this on herself, your Big Sister will still be worried about her!”
“Since grandma is agreeable, let’s ask someone to inform Big Sister now!” Qin Wanru suggested with a smile, “Now, those people from Duke Yong’s Mansion are also there. If Big Sister goes over at this time, this will certainly make them stop arguing with us!”
This was reasonable. People from Duke Yong’s Mansion came over to find fault with this matter. Following Qin Yuru’s visit, they would not be able to say that Qin’s Mansion did not take care of Madam Di.
Madam Dowager agreed and sent an old maid to inform Qin Yuru.
Seeing the old maid leaving, a trace of coldness flashed in Qin Wanru’s eyes. As expected, her father had not told the entire truth to her grandmother.
Obviously, grandma did not know that it was Qin Yuru who had caused so much trouble for Madam Di!
She wanted to kill her own mother, but now her mother was not dead, and they had to live together. Just wait and see what Qin Yuru would do!
Qin Yuru must also be afraid in her heart, otherwise she would not have faked her illness in order to avoid Madam Di.
She wanted to avoid Madam Di, but this time Qin Wanru would not let her do so!
“I will wait and see how she will get along with Madam Di, and how she will make trouble…” thought Qin Wanru.
When Qin Yuru arrived at Yulan Pavilion, the people from Duke Yong’s Mansion were still there. Earlier, they had sent someone to invite her, but Qin Yuru had said that she was ill and could only come over later.
She arrived after a long while. If Madam Di had not become like this and Old Madam of Duke Yong’s Mansion had something to tell Qin Yuru in person, the people from Duke Yong’s Mansion should have already left!
Looking at Qin Yuru, who came late, Old Madam’s face became more gloomy.
“Grandma!” Seeing Old Madam, Qin Yuru’s tears fell immediately. She cried sadly, and could not speak any more.
She knelt in front of Old Madam, reaching out her hands to rest them on Old Madam’s knees, and cried loudly.
Old Madam looked at her daughter lying on the bed, whose condition was still unknown. Then she looked at Qin Yuru, who was crying so sadly, and her eyes turned watery too.
She loved this daughter most dearly. Her daughter had thoughtlessly done something wrong at a young age, so she had to marry her off to a distant place. Now she was finally back, but she seemed to be in a coma now. How could Old Madam not feel pain her heart? She reached out to hug Qin Yuru, her previous annoyance turning into sadness, and now she wiped her tears with a handkerchief too.
Seeing the two of them crying so sadly, Countess Yong pretended to wipe her eyes with a handkerchief. “Fenglan, help your cousin stand up. Your grandmother is too old to bear such sadness.”
Di Fenglan came over and held Qin Yuru up.
Qin Yuru kept sobbing and sat down on a chair, her tears flowing copiously. She did not look good today. She did not have any makeup on and her face was pale and a little sallow.
“Well, what’s wrong with your mother?” Old Madam asked in a low voice, after wiping away her tears. After all, Old Madam had experienced all kinds of troubles.
“Grandma, my mother… mother is…” Qin Yuru cried so sadly that she could hardly speak coherently. Seeing her mother’s suffering, she had panicked and was suddenly at a loss.
Countess Yong tried to soothe her, and then Qin Yuru told Old Madam what had happened at that time, after she calmed down.
After listening to her narration, what happened Madam Di was quite clear. As for what had occurred later, she was quite vague about that, and only said that Madam Di might have tried to hang herself. When she had come in and managed to save Madam Di, she was already in that condition and no one knew why this had happened.
After she finished her story, Old Madam fell silent.
Nanny Zhou, who was standing in front of the bed, looked at Qin Yuru and then at Old Madam of Duke Yong’s Mansion. She withdrew to the side of the bed, and stood still with her head down.
Of course, she knew what had happened and First Miss was lying, but she dared not open her mouth!
Madam Dowager comforted Qin Yuru in a low voice, “Good girl, you have suffered a lot. Although you are not feeling well, you still have to come and take care of your mother. But if you did not come, that girl would be the one to come over. Grandma really does not trust that cunning girl!”
“Grandma, please allow my mother and I to go back to Duke Yong’s Mansion. I don’t want to live here anymore!” Qin Yuru cried again into her handkerchief in her hand and pleaded with her grandmother.
She saw that Qin Yuru looked pitiable and her face was so pale, which reminded her of Qin Wanru’s delicate and beautiful face. Old Madam was furious and felt that it was Shui Ruolan and Qin Wanru who had caused her daughter to be in this condition.
If Shui Ruolan had not become Qin Huaiyong’s associate wife, and if Qin Wanru had not caused so much trouble, such a tragedy would not have happened.
She pitied her daughter as well as her granddaughter, and felt that it was all the other people’s fault. However, she also had a guilty conscience about this matter, because she also had a hand in it.
But her daughter had unexpectedly been hurt, in the end. She suddenly felt sad when she thought about this, and her eyes turned red again.
“Yuru, you cannot go back for the time being. Didn’t… Didn’t your mother tell you before? Old Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion seems to like you and has almost accepted you!” Everyone in this room was from Duke Yong’s Mansion, and this time they were all here with trusted subordinates, so Old Madam explained it more clearly.
These things had been planned by Madam Di, and Old Madam thought it was a good idea.
This would be good for Madam Di, Qin Yuru, and Duke Yong’s Mansion.
“Grandmother… I know… but my mother… mother…” Seeing that Old Madam had comforted her again and again, Qin Yuru felt quite assured, “It seems that grandmother does not know the truth. Excellent!” She sniffed and gave Old Madam a grief stricken look, as if she did not want to say anything else and only cared about her mother.
This made Old Madam feel heartbroken and sad again, so her voice became more gentle, “Your mother is in such a condition now, but she definitely will want you to keep well. Grandmother will ask the people in Qin’s Mansion to let you out and to no longer lock you up. You’d better find a way to contact Duke Xing’s Mansion and let them bring you to Duke Xing’s Mansion. Your father will not dare to treat your mother badly when you are in Duke Xing’s Mansion!”
“But, I am not assured about my mother!” Qin Yuru cried with red eyes.
“Even if you are not, you still have to let it be. Remember, only when you are in good condition will your mother recover, and only then can we take revenge.” Seeing that she was still worried about Madam Di, Old Madam was relieved, but also sad. However, afraid that Qin Yuru would make mistakes, Old Madam reprimanded her coldly.
“But mother is like this, I… who can I ask to discuss about this matter…” Qin Yuru was still crying, as if she had had nothing left to live for, due to Madam Di’s pitiful condition.
“You can ask Nanny Huang!” Old Madam said. She came over today, to tell her about this incident.
“Ask Nanny Huang? The etiquette instructor Nanny Huang?” Qin Yuru was stunned. Nanny Huang did not treat her very well before, so she thought that Nanny Huang was not on her side. If Mother had not come out to say a few words about her this time, she would not have known that Nanny Huang was on her side.
Even if she came up with some ideas, was she really trustworthy? Qin Yuru looked puzzled, and she looked at Old Madam cautiously, with a confused and pitiable look.
“Yes, go and look for find Nanny Huang. I have sent someone to talk to her. Anyway, you can always look for her when you are in trouble!” Seeing Qin Yuru like this, Old Madam felt more pity for her. Originally, she wanted to let Di Yan marry Qin Yuru as soon as possible, but she thought this plan would be better after Madam Di shared this plan with her, before.
Compared with marrying quickly into Duke Yong’s Mansion, Qin Yuru would have a skyrocketing rise to fame if she could get such a powerful background. It would benefit not only herself, but also Duke Yong’s Mansion. After all, Qin Yuru would marry Di Yan in the future. No matter what her future identity would be, the engagement had already been arranged.
In fact, it was not difficult to take control of Nanny Huang. Old Madam did not control her before because she thought it was unnecessary. However, now Madam Di was in trouble, and Nanny Zhou had to spend all time taking care of Madam Di, and had no time to help Qin Yuru. Old Madam thought of the etiquette instructor Nanny Huang, who had already taught Qin Yuru, in the mansion.
Last night, she had already sent someone to buy over Nanny Huang’s family, so she had sent someone over to inform them about this.
At this time, if she sent someone else to Qin’s Mansion again, she knew that newcomers would not be appreciated. It would be better to use the original ones. Being an etiquette instructor meant that Nanny Huang was not a common person. Besides, Countess Yong had a good relationship with her in the past and treated her kindly. Additionally, she had bought over her family now.
Nanny Huang was also more knowledgeable and resourceful than Nanny Zhou, so she would definitely become one of Qin Yuru’s trusted aide.
This was what Old Madam of Duke Yong’s Mansion had thought and done.
She could not let her poor granddaughter be bullied in Qin’s Mansion.
“Then will Nanny Huang help me in the future?” Qin Yuru asked cautiously.
Looking at such a cautious granddaughter, Old Madam felt as if her heart had been stabbed and she became more vicious.
“Don’t worry. Nanny Huang will help you. She might have not done her best before, but she will not, in the future!” Old Madam said in a low voice, with a trace of coldness in her eyes.
“Yes, grandma. I will leave everything to you!” Qin Yuru said obediently.
“Yuru, you must take good care of your mother! After your mother gets well, grandmother will ask them to return what they owe us!” Old Madam said harshly.
“But mother is like this now…” Qin Yuru turned to look at Madam Di, who was lying on the bed, in a coma. She felt secretly delighted, but showed a look of grievance instead.
“Don’t worry. Grandmother will save your mother!” Old Madam gritted her teeth. She had come up with a solution before she came here…
