Medical Princess - Chapter 412
“Why don’t you temporarily choose a younger Miss? She is still young, so you cannot get married immediately. You can also explain this to Empress Mother!” Seeing that he had to concede the chess game, Prince Cheng sat down again reluctantly and said, as he picked up his chess pieces.
It was the Master Jie Yan who had come up with this idea for him before. At this time, it occurred to him and he directly gave this idea to Chu Liuchen.
“Well… it is a good idea, but it is not easy to find such a person. I do not like those girls who are quite choosy in the capital city.” Chu Liuchen also picked up his chess pieces. After hearing what Prince Cheng had said, he knocked on the table with a chess piece in his hand and said with a cruel look in his eyes.
Of course, Prince Cheng knew why Chu Liuchen reacted like this. When Empress Dowager had intended to select a wife for him before, it was said that those Misses from aristocratic families present at that time had all been looking at other princes with affection.
At this time, he even disliked all the Misses from aristocratic families in the capital city.
“If she is not a Miss from an aristocratic family in the capital city, I am afraid that Empress Mother will not agree!” Prince Cheng reminded him with a smile. Empress Dowager doted on Chu Liuchen so much, so if she chose a wife for him, this girl would definitely have a high status, and would inevitably be a Miss from a large aristocratic family.
“I do not like them anyway. It is better not to be these snobbish girls in the capital city.” Chu Liuchen continued picking up chess pieces without lifting his hands and said lazily.
He said again without hesitation, which meant that he really dislike this.
“It is impossible to choose a Miss not from an aristocratic family. If you really do not like the Misses chosen before, you can actually choose the Misses from aristocratic families who have just come to the capital city. After all, they have not appeared in the capital city before and have never been snobbish!” Prince Cheng thought for a while and advised him.
It was because of choosing his concubines that Chu Liuchen had been hurt by those Misses from aristocratic families in the capital city. So he could choose the Miss who had just arrived in the capital city. At least this Miss must not have been present when Chu Liuchen had been choosing his concubines at that time, so that he could undo his knot in his mind.
If he could make a good relationship with Chu Liuchen, Prince Cheng would be willing to do so.
“Which one is suitable?” Chu Liuchen was interested in his words. He raised his pale face and asked with a smile.
Prince Cheng was stuck by this question. In fact, he just casually said so. Chu Liuchen asked so carefully that Prince Cheng did not think of anyone else at the moment, but he suddenly remembered what he had heard before and immediately said with a smile, “I heard that the second daughter of Ningyuan Army General is young, but her appearance is outstanding. Maybe you can take her into account.”
In fact, Prince Cheng had seen Qin Wanru in the courtyard just now. But at that time, his attention had been all on Qin Yuru, so he had not noticed Qin Wanru’s appearance. He just casually said that she had an outstanding appearance without any specific verification.
This was also what Master Jie Yan had said before and Prince Cheng just borrowed it for the time being.
“Ningyuan Army General?” Chu Liuchen repeated and frowned as if he could not remember who this was at the moment.
“Ningyuan Army General, Qin Huaiyong.” Prince Cheng reminded him with a smile.
Chu Liuchen put down the chess piece in his hand and leaned back on his large wheelchair. He said with some disgust, “I do know her. I met her when I was in Jiangzhou. But she is quite young, just a little girl!”
“A younger girl also has her own advantages. Empress Dowager will not ask you to get married in a hurry. It will take several years to wait for her growing up and getting married. Besides, she is still young and has just arrived in the capital city, so she cannot be quite snobbish,” said Prince Cheng.
He was not surprised that Chu Liuchen had known Qin Wanru. Qin Wanru had been involved in the matter which had happened at the entrance of the palace. Many people who knew the real situation guessed that Chu Liuchen and Second Miss Qin knew each other. Now hearing Chu Liuchen openly acknowledging this, Prince Cheng also believed that Qin Wanru had been innocently involved in this trouble at that time.
It seemed that Chu Liuchen really did not care about her.
“That is good! All right, it is settled then!” Chu Liuchen nodded casually, as if he was talking about what he was going to eat later.
This casual attitude made Prince Cheng stunned. He suddenly felt that this matter was decided too casually, so he immediately coughed and said tentatively, “Do you really think this Second Miss Qin is good?”
“Because this is Uncle’s suggestion, and I also know her. When I was in Jiangzhou, I once lived in their mansion and she looked quite well-behaved. Though she is still young, at least I can postpone the marriage for a few years and use this as an excuse in front of Imperial Grandmother. So she is indeed a good choice.”
Chu Liuchen’s words sounded very serious, but it was hard to tell how serious he was in his smiling eyes.
After that, he raised the chess piece in his hand to Prince Cheng and said, “Uncle, I will take the first move!”
When the chess piece fell down, he seemingly paid more attention to the chess game than the previous question. Before Prince Cheng placed his chess piece, Chu Liuchen even moved his chess piece again to another position. Stunned by his laziness, Prince Cheng shook his head reluctantly and also put down his chess piece with a smile.
After all, he was not interested in her at all!
However, since Prince Cheng had mentioned this, he should no longer have any relationship with Second Miss Qin in the future.
“Uncle, thank you for help me come up with this idea. In fact, if you really do not want to get married, you can also use today’s matter as an excuse!”
Chu Liuchen also played a placement. This time, he obeyed the regulation and didn’t move his chess piece anymore. He shook his robe gracefully and said with some deep meaning.
“What do you mean?” Prince Cheng asked with a smile.
“Uncle, your consort selection was messed up by a woman, which made you realize that there is such a disgusting woman in the world. You didn’t want to marry anyone before. The reason why you agreed to choose concubine was because of the meaning of Empress Dowager and Imperial Uncle. But now you are stricken. So it’s reasonable for you to say that you are not going to marry anyone temporarily!”
Prince Cheng didn’t like women originally, so he didn’t want to marry anyone. This time, he was forced to do so and he could not refuse that. But if he refused it because of the matter of Qin Yuru, he could at least postpone it for a period of time.
In fact, this was also what Prince Cheng had decided. After hearing Chu Liuchen’s words, he immediately showed a look of realization and then nodded repeatedly.
“Not bad, not bad. It’s indeed a good way! But…”
Speaking of this, Prince Cheng hesitated again.
“Uncle, what else do you have to worry about? Do you really like the First Miss Qin and want to compete for a beauty with the heir of Duke Yong’s Mansion?”
Chu Liuchen raised his beautiful eyebrows and asked curiously.
“How is it possible? I am afraid that I will get you into trouble. This First Miss of Qin’s Mansion is the eldest sister of the Second Miss of Qin’s Mansion and also the daughter of Ningyuan Army General!” Prince Cheng shook his head repeatedly, as if he was extremely unwilling to be related to this First Miss of Qin’s Mansion. He wanted to keep a distance from the First Miss of Qin’s Mansion as if she was like a ghost.
“It doesn’t matter. I just like to choose a Miss from aristocratic family who doesn’t make me feel disgusted and has some feeling with me. As long as you don’t get her involved when you’re talking about this matter, it will be okay!”
Chu Liuchen said and waved his hand indifferently.
Hearing what he said, Prince Cheng had already understood and laughed out loudly. It seemed that Chu Liuchen really didn’t take the Second Miss of Qin’s Mansion seriously.
Since he had come up with this idea for him, he could not ruin this thing in order to make a good friend with Chu Liuchen. He had to find an opportunity to help Chu Liuchen. If he could get Chu Liuchen to stand on his side, it would be of great benefit to him.
Prince Cheng did not believe that his eldest brother did not have any manpower in his hand then. It was just that his nephew was too weak. Otherwise, he would have paid more attention to him.
It would be much easier for him to do whatever he wanted if he could get hold of the people his eldest brother had left behind.
Prince Cheng had his own calculation. Of course, he was trying his best to please his young nephew. He was just a sick boy who had not gone through any hardships. And he was a man who was not a threat to him. So he just tried to coax him.
Although he knew that his nephew’s temperament was a little changeable. So what! What could he do with such a body!
Thinking of this, he became more patient. He must not go against Chu Liuchen’s wishes. His own affairs would never involve this Second Miss of Qin’s Mansion he just proposed to show his sincerity to Chu Liuchen.
As for the women whom Xiqi had seen before, they must have been found by Chu Liuchen because of his reversal mind. Empress Dowager and His Majesty wanted him to marry a noble Miss from an aristocratic family, so he deliberately found a woman who had low status and a bad reputation. Of course, he wanted to go against the Empress Dowager and His Majesty.
The reason for his speculation was totally because of Chu Liuchen’s words and behavior just now.
The silly young boy was just like this. Prince Cheng thought that he used to experience such a time. But he was more sensible. It didn’t take long for him to finish this period of time. And now Chu Liuchen’s age was just in the time.
Now that he had figured out the cause and effect, the uncle and nephew naturally became more and more congenial. Prince Cheng also tolerated Chu Liuchen very much, as if he was the elder who loved him very much. Even if Chu Liuchen was like a rogue and moved a few chess pieces, he was also very generous and did not point it out. And the two were in peace.
They got along well with each other and helped each other think about ideas. The relationship seemed to get closer all of a sudden, but something bad happened in Duke Yong’s Mansion.
When Qin Yuru returned to the mansion, she actually collided with another carriage. The carriage flipped out partly, and Qin Yuru was injured and fainted to the ground.
Qin Yuru did not go out with Qin Huaiyong this time. When she went out from Duke Yong’s Mansion, Qin Huaiyong was still talking in the study of Duke Yong’s Mansion.
When the news came, Qin Huaiyong was anxious to go out, but he was reported that Qin Yuru had been taken away by the carriage of Duke Xing’s Mansion.
The accident was also caused by the carriage of Duke Xing’s Mansion, and the person in the carriage was the third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion. It was said that the Madam was also injured. But when she saw Qin Yuru was hurt, she hurried to take Qin Yuru to Duke Xing’s Mansion.
As a result, Qin Huaiyong went to Duke Xing’s Mansion in a hurry.
When he arrived at Duke Xing’s Mansion, it happened that Duke Xing was not in the mansion and Madam of Duke Xing was taking care of the injured, so she had no time to see him. She only asked her servants to tell Qin Huaiyong to rest assured. She said that the First Miss of Qin’s Mansion had woken up at this time, but she couldn’t move for a while, so she asked him to go back first.
Qin Huaiyong had no choice but to go back to his General’s Mansion and directly went to Madam Dowager’s Xinning Pavilion to discuss countermeasures with Madam Dowager!
And this matter was also reported to Qin Wanru…
