Medical Princess - Chapter 456
Madam of Duke Xing covered her face with her hand and glared at Duke Xing in rage, "Duke, why did you slap me?"
After twisting his round face slowly, Duke Xing calmed down slowly, looked up at Madam of Duke Xing coldly and said, "You've managed domestic affairs well!"
Despite his cold voice, he had eased his tone. Obviously he had calmed down rapidly.
"I…" Madam of Duke Xing clenched the hand not on her face, and then relaxed it slowly and took a deep breath.
Duke Xing interrupted her and said, "Deal with them. I am going to see my mother!"
After that, he turned around and left, leaving the servants and Madam of Duke Xing in the room.
Glaring at Duke Xing's receding figure, Madam of Duke Xing suddenly picked up the teacup at her hand and smashed it violently on the ground, while cursing. She seemed to be furious. Smashing a teacup was not enough to vent her spleen. She kicked the tea table beside her, and the tea table fell to the ground with a loud noise.
"Madam, Madam, cool down. Duke just had a slip of the hand. He didn't say anything after that, right?" Nanny Sheng came over in a hurry to console her. She held Madam of Duke Xing's sleeve and pulled her into a chair beside them, while whispering to comfort her.
"Madam, too many things happened today. Duke was furious at the moment. How could he be so out of control in the past? What happened to the Fifth Miss is still unsettled, and she may enter the palace tomorrow. Duke blamed you because he was upset. Look around here, you are his dearest wife. Who else could he blame except for you?"
"His dearest wife? I can't compare with that person…" Madam of Duke Xing was so angry that her face turned pale, and her eyes looked dark and sharp, almost overflowing with hatred.
"Madam, stop saying that. This, this…" Nanny Sheng interrupted her in a hurry and said with her hands and feet trembling.
Madam of Duke Xing took a deep breath and suppressed the anger in her heart. This time she did not say anything, and the living room fell silent again all of a sudden. The maids beside her had nothing else in their mind, for fear of attracting Madam of Duke Xing's attention. Anyone attracting her attention would get into trouble.
Wang Shengxue looked at Madam of Duke Xing in horror. He had heard Madam of Duke Xing curse. Despite her low voice and slightly vague words, he could tell that Madam of Duke Xing was cursing a woman.
After being slapped by his second uncle, she not only lost her usual dignified demeanor, but also cursed an unknown woman. Could it be that his second uncle had a mistress outside?
Everyone in the capital city knew that his Second Uncle and Second Aunt were the most affectionate couple. They almost grew up together since their childhood, and got married afterwards. Except for the concubine promoted from his Second Uncle's maid, his Second Uncle had no other concubine. In this case, whom did his Uncle's aunt curse?
If his Second Uncle really had a mistress outside, that would be a stick with which to threaten his Second Uncle. At the thought of this, Wang Shengxue couldn't help getting excited! But he suppressed his emotion immediately.
Wang Shengxue had never seen Madam of Duke Xing act like that before.
The evil look was ferocious and a bit gloomy, making him involuntarily terrified. Seeing Madam of Duke Xing look towards him, Wang Shengxue hurriedly called her in a flattering tone, "Second Aunt!"
He was afraid that Madam of Duke Xing would notice the strangeness in his eyes!
"I'll bring Miss Ning and her maid over for you tomorrow morning!" Madam of Duke Xing waved her hand and said. At this moment, she was not in the mood to deal with Wang Shengxue's affair. Her plot was ruined, and so many unexpected things happened. Besides, Duke Xing slapped her violently in front of the servants, completely disregarding her feelings.
It would be strange if she was in a good mood now. She even felt sick of seeing those in front of her, because they reminded her of the slap Duke Xing gave her in public a moment ago.
"Okay, thank you, Second Aunt!" Wang Shengxue was sharp-eyed enough to notice that, so he said respectfully in a hurry.
"You two can leave now!" Madam of Duke Xing said coldly.
Wang Shengxue stood up and staggered. He felt his legs went weak after kneeling for a long time. Fortunately, he didn't have other injuries. After standing firm, he pulled up Dongxing, whose face and nose had been battered, and took her out.
Dongxing was frozen stiff on the spot and fell to the ground after being pulled.
Madam of Duke Xing frowned in disgust and said, "Someone come here and help take her out. Don't let her die here and stain the ground!"
"Okay, okay, Second Aunt. I'll take her away right away!" Wang Shengxue bowed and said.
Two maids came over and helped him take Dongxing away on each side of her.
Nanny Sheng shook her head secretly. Even if this girl could survive, her health would be totally ruined. Even a man probably couldn't bear to jump into the water in winter.
Nevertheless, it had nothing to do with them. Wang Shengxue was the one who asked her to do that. Even if she died, no one could blame Madam for it.
"Let's go inside and have a look!" Madam of Duke Xing had recovered at this moment. She calmed herself down, stood up and gave orders.
"Okay, Madam!" Knowing that she was concerned about the negotiation between Duke Xing and Madam Dowager, Nanny Sheng nodded hurriedly.
After instructing the maids to clean the living room, Madam of Duke Xing left for Old Madam's yard in a hurry. When she passed the yard which had been burned out, she immediately remembered that she had prepared it for her son and felt extremely distressed. However, she could do nothing about it at the moment, so she clenched her teeth with hatred, ignored it and went straight to the backyard.
If she could find out the one setting the courtyard on fire, she would definitely tear the one to shreds.
Rui'an Great Elder Princess took Shao Wanru back to Great Elder Princess's Mansion.
The courtyard had been prepared long before. Exactly speaking, the courtyard had been fixed up and prepared when Rui'an Great Elder Princess and Shao Wanru recognized each other, so that Shao Wanru could live here when visiting Rui'an Great Elder Princess's Mansion.
There had been only one master in Great Elder Princess's Mansion, but now there were three.
When Shao Wanru returned to the main room after freshening up, Rui'an Great Elder Princess was still sitting there and drinking tea with only Nanny Gao beside her to serve her.
Shao Wanru sat down opposite to Great Elder Princess. Yujie served tea and retreated into the shadow of the lamp aside.
Great Elder Princess put down the teacup in her hand and asked, "Did you get hurt?"
"Grandma, rest assured. I'm fine. I didn't get hurt!" Shao Wanru said softly with a smile. The longing affection in her watery eyes softened Great Elder Princess's heart and made her wish she could take out her heart.
However, she pulled a long face and snorted. "Tell me what happened today? Why did you do that?"
"It's useless even if you talk to me in a sweet tone. I want to hear your true thought so that I can say something complied with your thought to the Empress Dowager when visiting the imperial palace tomorrow!"
Great Elder Princess said with rage on her face, "You are such an audacious little girl. If something terrible really happens to you, how could Hao'er and I face it? Hao'er finally got you as his sister, and I finally got you as my granddaughter. Do you have to put yourself in such a dangerous situation?"
Great Elder Princess was not stupid. Based on what had happened before and Shao Wanru had sent someone to tell her that she must come over if something happened in Duke Xing's Mansion in the evening, she could tell that it was part of Shao Wanru's plot, although she had not figured out how Shao Wanru did it.
She entered Duke Xing's Mansion with only two maids and some spare clothes. It was impossible for her to take something like kerosene with her. Great Elder Princess didn't know how this girl did such a dangerous thing.
Apart from other masters of Duke Xing's Mansion who could find out her bathing time, Shao Wanru could take a bath at an exact moment. She could take a bath anytime she wanted to, or delayed it with an excuse if she didn't want to.
"Grandma, don't be angry." Shao Wanru reached out to hold Great Elder Princess's hand, shook it and said in a sweet voice.
"How could I not be angry? Have you ever thought about what should we do if something terrible really happened?" Looking at Shao Wanru, her pretty granddaughter, Great Elder Princess suddenly became furious with a stern face.
She, who talked in an aggressive tone, became so furious at this moment that Shao Wanru didn't dare to look straight at her.
Nevertheless, her rage made Shao Wanru feel warm. She had never seen this sincere concern and rage on others before. Her eyes turned slightly red at the moment.
"Grandma, I'm fine. It's really part of my plot!" Shao Wanru shook Great Elder Princess's hand and said obediently, "Grandma, I can't live in Duke Xing's Mansion, but it's unrealistic for me not to live there. If I just live there now, I might be trapped in a few days. After all, I'm still too young! So the fire crash today is part of my plot."
It was secretly planned by her. She didn't want to tell Great Elder Princess the truth, for fear that Great Elder Princess would feel worried.
However, she mentioned it at this moment.
"If you don't want to live there, I can bring you back and you can live here. How can you execute such a dangerous plan?" Seeing that she had told the truth, Great Elder Princess looked slightly relieved.
"Grandma, without a justifiable explanation, I can only live here for a few days at most. You should have asked a favor of the Empress Dowager for bringing Hao'er back, right?" Shao Wanru sighed lightly and said.
She was not Hao'er. She knew that something was a knotty problem for Great Elder Princess, such as bringing Hao'er or her back.
It was originally unjustifiable for Hao'er to live here. As a descendant of Duke Xing's Mansion, how could Hao'er make a long stay in Great Elder Princess's Mansion? Nevertheless, Hao'er was in a special situation. On one hand, Hao'er was willing to live in Great Elder Princess's Mansion and be close to Great Elder Princess. On the other hand, both what Duke Xing's Mansion had done and the fact that Hao'er had become increasingly obedient made others suspect that Duke Xing's Mansion had indulged Hao'er purposely.
The contrast between them, coupled with the request of Great Elder Princess and the Empress Dowager, and Duke Xing's Mansion was in the wrong, so Great Elder Princess suppressed Duke Xing's Mansion and managed to raise Hao'er in Great Elder Princess's Mansion.
However, Great Elder Princess couldn't do this again. It was unreasonable for Great Elder Princess to make Shao Wanru stay before Duke Xing's Mansion showed any grudges against Shao Wanru.
"You want to make others think that Duke Xing's Mansion plot against you and harbor malicious intentions against you, and then leave Duke Xing's Mansion, right?" After pondering for a while, Great Elder Princess looked up and asked seriously.
