Medical Princess - Chapter 415
Is this the consequence of twisting one’s tendon?
Qin Wanru looked in astonishment at Qin Yuru, who was in front of her.
Her face was still the same, despite being a little distorted. Her body also looked fine and she had just reached out her hand to hit the servant girl and knock her down to the ground. Her legs and feet were also fine and she stood there steadily, as if nothing serious had happened to her. Indeed, she was not seriously injured.
The only thing that looked unpleasant was her tilted head.
Yes, her head was stiff and tilted to one side. She looked extremely strange, as if her head had been turned toward one side. Her face which was originally quite beautiful, looked not only distorted, but also very fierce.
“Qin Wanru, what are you doing here? Who asked you to come?” Just now, Qin Yuru screamed in pain because the servant girl accidentally touched her neck. Then, she knocked the servant girl down to the ground, but she did not expect that Qin Wanru would come in at that time. She momentarily felt angry and regretful, overwhelmed with shame and rage, so she screamed loudly at Qin Wanru.
Although she had readied herself for the collision, she had not expected that there would be an accident and she had indeed twisted her neck. Although the doctor said that it was not a big deal and she just needed to recuperate for a period, her poor appearance happened to be seen by Qin Wanru.
Nanny Huang frowned and wanted to say something, but after looking at Nanny Sheng, she closed her eyes, and had a severe look on her face. There were too many people around, so it was not convenient for her to ask Qin Yuru about something. She could only stand aside and see what was going on.
“First Miss, Second Miss is here to see you.” Nanny Sheng said coldly to Qin Yuru, with a serious face.
She did not say much, but the warning in the words made Qin Yuru’s face turn pale. She immediately sobered up, but she could not give up her self-esteem to pretend to have sisterly ties with Qin Wanru, so she snorted and turned back to sit down. With her tilted head, she glanced at Qin Wanru, and her voice slowed down.
“Did Father ask you to come and see me?”
“How did Big Sister bump into the carriage of Duke Xing’s Mansion?” Qin Wanru smiled slightly and calmly sat down on the chair at the side. She did not show any affection toward Qin Yuru; it was as if she only wanted to ask about the accident.
“What do you mean that I bumped into the carriage? It was the carriage from Duke Xing’s Mansion that hit me. If I did not ask the coachman to attempt to calm the horse at that time, Third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion would have been in big trouble.” Qin Yuru said angrily. She was always determined not to show any weakness in front of Qin Wanru, so she immediately retorted when she heard what Qin Wanru said.
“Do you mean that the carriage of Third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion bumped into you?” Qin Wanru frowned and looked as if she was trying to figure out the truth.
“Obviously someone else bumped into me. I was hurt so badly by her.” Qin Yuru stretched out her hand to touch her twisted neck and said angrily.
She was very angry. She had put in a lot of thoughts into the accident that would happen when she collided with the carriage of Duke Xing’s Mansion. She had put several beddings in the carriage, obviously to avoid being badly hit. If she had been really hurt, the loss would outweigh the gain.
Her hands and feet had all been protected, but her head had not been protected and had resulted in her neck being accidentally twisted. Although the doctor said that it was not a big deal and she would recover in a few days, her appearance did not allow her to meet people and Qin Wanru saw this directly.
This was the last thing she wanted.
“Was it Third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion who bumped into your carriage?” Qin Wanru seemingly did not understand, so she asked again.
“Isn’t it true? Obviously, it was she who collided with me!” Qin Yuru thought that Qin Wanru did not believe this, so she replied angrily.
“Nanny Sheng, what was wrong with Third Madam’s carriage? How could it collide with someone on the street for no reason?” Qin Wanru raised the corner of her mouth slightly, and shifted her gaze from Qin Yuru’s face to Nanny Sheng’s face, with coldness in her shimmery eyes.
“It was an accident. No one knew that such a thing would happen. Actually, the carriage in our mansion is in quite a good condition before, but it is unknown how it bumped into First Miss Qin’s carriage. Fortunately, the two of them are fine now. Since it is not suitable for First Miss Qin to go out looking like this, she can stay in our mansion to rest for a while and have a check if she has any other injuries!”
Nanny Sheng explained with a smile.
“An accident?” Qin Wanru seemed a little suspicious.
Nanny Sheng’s heart missed a beat and she felt a little uneasy somehow. But she still said with a smile, “Of course it was an accident. No one knows how such kind of thing happened. Our Third Madam is badly injured and cannot get up now.”
Compared with Qin Yuru who had been well prepared, Third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion was caught unawares. Her injuries were much more severe than Qin Yuru’s, and she was still lying on the bed now.
Qin Wanru stood up and said, “I will go and visit Third Madam!”
Since she came here on behalf of Qin’s Mansion, she naturally had to visit Third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion. She also brought gifts with her.
“Thank you for your kindness, Second Miss Qin. But our Third Madam does not have enough energy to meet guests now.” Nanny Sheng said with an embarrassed look.
“Third Madam was hurt so badly?” Qin Wanru asked in surprise.
Nanny Sheng nodded and said with a serious look, “Our Third Madam is really badly injured, so it is inconvenient for her to see guests now.”
“In that case, please bring these gifts to Third Madam to express our mansion’s regret,” Qin Wanru said softly.
Since Nanny Sheng had said so, she naturally could not be an inhospitable guest, and forcibly request to see the third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion. Thinking about all of this, she was sure that the third Madam had indeed been seriously injured.
Qin Yuru was actually unscathed, except for accidentally twisting her neck. Her so-called injury was actually just a statement.
There was a trace of solitude in her shimmery eyes, and a sardonic smile appeared at the corners of her lips. The third Madam’s serious injury was one reason, and the other reason why she was not allowed to see the third Madam was because they were afraid that she would find out about something! But although she did not ask, she could contact the third Madam.
The third Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion certainly did not have so much power as Madam of Duke Xing. But she was not useless…
“Thank you Second Miss Qin. I will make a trip for Second Miss. First Miss seems not to be able to go out. So Second Miss, please choose a house to live and wait for First Miss to get better and then she can go back”
Nanny Sheng nodded repeatedly and said with smile.
Qin Wanru smiled slightly, and gestured to the servant girl behind her. The servant girl held the gift in her hand, and Nanny Sheng asked someone to take it.
Qin Wanru chose the house on the right of Qin Yuru’s house.
Qin Yuru lived in the main house in this yard. The house Qin Wanru chose was toward the direction of the inner court and the other side of the house was near the direction of the outer court.
This yard happened to be near the Chuihua Gate. One side was near the outer court, while another side was near the inner court.
After Wanru had chosen her house, Nanny Sheng gave some orders to the servant girls in the yard, and then she went back with the gift from Qin Wanru, to report.
Qin Wanru stood still in the courtyard, narrowing her eyes and looking at the big pine tree in the courtyard.
Although this yard was large, it looked a little somber as a whole. There was a small pavilion under the big tree. There were stone tables and stone benches. This was a very elegant place.
This outer courtyard was clean, but there was no flowers and plants. Near the courtyard walls were pavilions. It had both an inner court and an outer court. Duke Xing’s Mansion had many of these pavilions that came in various shapes. Seeing it from far away, people would feel that the prosperity of Duke Xing’s Mansion was not comparable to that of ordinary families.
Because the Qin sisters were now living inside, each of them now had a personal servant girl. Duke Xing’s Mansion only provided an old maid to tend to the door and two servant girls to serve in the courtyard and take charge of all the cleaning outside.
After all, she was the Miss from the other mansion, and she was living here as a guest. This arrangement was quite normal.
“Second Miss, First Miss wants you to come in.” Mei Xue walked out of the house in a hurry, and greeted Qin Wanru respectfully.
“What’s the matter?” Qin Wanru ignored her and walked into the pavilion, leisurely. Yujie hurriedly picked up a cushion on the side and put it on the side fence for her. Qin Wanru sat down and leaned against the fence.
“First Miss feels uncomfortable. She hopes that you could find another doctor for her.” Mei Xue had to follow her and answered.
“She does not believe in the doctor sent by Duke Xing’s Mansion?” Qin Wanru raised her eyes slightly. Her eyes were clear without any emotion.
“It’s not that we don’t believe him. It’s … it’s First Miss who is afraid of having sequelae.” Mei Xue said anxiously.
Although the doctor promised her that it was not serious, but as a woman, who would want to twist her neck?. She could not stand being in this situation for one day, not to mention there were still many days to go. And her First Miss had such a bad temper that Mei Xue did not dare to take up her time. Therefore, she proposed to Qin Yuru that she might want to invite other doctors to take a look.
Before, the people from Duke Xing’s Mansion were there, so she was too embarrassed to say more. But now Second Miss had come. She could ask Second Miss for help to find some doctors.
On the one hand, it could speed up the healing of her neck. On the other hand, it could also let outsiders know that Qin Yuru was seriously injured, and several doctors had been invited to tend to her.
“Is there any sequelae?” Qin Wanru asked, without any anxiety.
Mei Xue’s sweat started to form on her forehead. “I … don’t know.”
“Since you don’t know, let things be as it is. Although Big Sister’s appearance is a little ugly, Childe Di is not here at the moment. So he will not see the extreme ugly appearance of Big Sister. It would not be a big problem.” Qin Wanru raised her delicate little face, and said this in a soft voice. But her words were full of mockery.
“Second Miss…” Mei Xue wanted to ask again, but Yujie interrupted her unkindly. “Mei Xue, please go back first. It’s useless to invite many doctors to see First Miss, just for her appearance now. Instead, she should just let more people see her as a joke.”
These words were full of mockery, almost not giving Qin Yuru, the First Miss, a little face at all. Mei Xue was very angry and felt helpless. She bit her lips, looked at Qin Wanru who was quite nonchalant about it, and turned to leave, as she gritted her teeth.
“Qin Wanru, what do you mean?” The house was actually not far away. Qin Yuru had been standing at the window and looking at Qin Wanru. At this time, she heard what Qin Wanru and her servant girl were saying. She was so angry that her face became ashen. She could not stand it right now. She pushed the door and went out, saying angrily.
Nanny Huang wanted to stop her, but it was too late!
“Big Sister, what are you doing out with such an appearance! Do you want to make trouble in Duke Xing’s Mansion after making trouble in Prince Cheng’s mansion?” Qin Wanru stood up helplessly, looking at Qin Yuru, who had rushed out to inquire.
The voice was not high, but it was enough to make Qin Yuru’s lungs explode, especially when she mentioned the matter about Prince Cheng’s mansion. She raised her hand with the intention to slap Qin Wanru’s tender face.
Yujie had sharp eyes and agile hands. She pulled Qin Wanru a step back, managing to avoid Qin Yuru’s slap.
In an attic some distance away, someone saw this scene in front of him, and his brows furrowed together tightly …
