Medical Princess - Chapter 478
“Yes but you are the only granddaughter of Great Elder Princess!” answered Chu Liuchen confidently.
What he said, actually, was true. Shao Wanru was speechless. Given she was Rui’an Great Elder Princess’ only granddaughter, her status was much higher and better than the others’.
At least, no one could replace her when considering this factor.
However, even so, she didn’t know how Chu Liuchen could gain support from Great Elder Princess.
“But before you mentioned this, you didn’t know that I am Great Elder Princess’ granddaughter, right?” When Shao Wanru tried to turn to look at Chu Liuchen’s eyes, he reached out and turned her head back. Thus, she closed her eyes and asked curiously.
She had been Qin Huaiyong’s daughter at that time. Did he want to collect Qin Huaiyong? However, she had been just an adopted daughter and she could not let Qin Huaiyong stand by her actually.
“I have known that you are Rui’an Great Elder Princess’ granddaughter!” said Chu Liuchen gently. Reaching out to softly pull her white earlobe, he surprisedly found that her earlobe gradually changed from white to scarlet. Then he wanted to keep playing her ear.
His answer made Shao Wanru speechless again. She then tried to take away the hand which was touching her ear.
“You are so farsighted.”
“Of course. When I saw you at the very beginning, I have known that you are a good choice. And it turns out that I am right!”
Chu Liuchen now looked much more confident and she could tell that he was very proud of himself from his gentle voice, which made Shao Wanru not know what to say.
Constantly taking Chu Liuchen’s naughty hand away several times, Shao Wanru decided to ask him about proper business, “Do you feel better now? You seem to be better than the last time I saw you.”
Although she didn’t check his pulse, she did feel Chu Liuchen was different when she saw him this time. He seemed to be another person now!
This description might not be proper. Chu Liuchen still looked like a weak handsome man outwardly, but he was totally different inwardly. When he grabbed her, he was so powerful and strong, which she never knew he could do this. A “dying” man should not have such great strength.
“No, I still feel uncomfortable.” The hand which was touching her ear suddenly fell. He looked powerless and weak as he even coughed slightly. He took a feeble look and said, “I suppose I couldn’t hold on too long. Please remember to remain a widow of Prince Chen. Please let me know there is still a person remembering me!”
His words were so annoying that Shao Wanru wanted to beat him. This devil could be much eviler!
But after that, a sorrow overwhelmed her. He was a son of the Emperor who should be respected by everyone, but now was disdained by the whole city. Sincerely? How many people did treat him with sincerity on earth actually?
She couldn’t help but turn to look at Chu Liuchen. This time, he didn’t turn her head back. Then there she saw an extremely handsome man lying beside her. His pale face and his pale lips even made his breath seem to be weak and faint. His long eyelashes then casually covered his pale eyelids.
He was so handsome and outstanding. His appearance should not appear in the vulgar world and only those handsome men in the books or paintings could be comparable to his!
He now looked pale and quiet. Especially when he closed his eyes and looked innocent, she still felt distressed about him when seeing this handsome man who closed his eyes even though she knew he was wicked.
She thought that maybe she was older than current Chu Liuchen when she died in her last life. Seeing this man who was as handsome as the person in the painting and thinking about what he just said, she now felt pity for him.
Reaching out spontaneously, she gently touched his handsome face. She did feel sorrowful and sad when seeing his look that he seemed to stop breathing with his eyes closed.
Suddenly, her hand was grabbed by a large hand. Then Chu Liuchen released her hand with a confused look and pressed his forehead.
He did that out of subconsciousness. Every time someone tried to get close to him, he would sense it quickly and react like this. However, he didn’t sense anything until Shao Wanru almost touched his face. His response was slow this time.
There was no sound in the room but their breaths, light breaths.
When Shao Wanru was embarrassed and tried to explain, she found Chu Liuchen turned his head to the other side and kept closing his eyes, which made her feel speechless again. Since he didn’t ask, then there was no need for her to explain. Thus, she also turned to another side and began to think about their current situation with her eyes closed.
Chu Liuchen’s sudden arrival made her worries disappear. Calming down and thinking carefully, she found that many things had been different even though Qi Tianyu had ranked third in the exam.
Compared to the same period in her last life, Qin Yuru had become the nominal granddaughter of Old Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion by taking her place and had been favored by Old Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion. Since she had shaved two years off her age, she was able to put off her marriage. Thus, now she should not have been married to someone.
But what now? She got married together with her notorious reputation!
In her last life, Qin Yuru lived a comfortable life with support from Duke Xing’s Mansion, Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion and her mother’s family, Duke Yong’s Mansion. Madam Di was in charge of all affairs of the inner courtyard and thus she shifted all the blames on Shao Wanru, which in turn made Qin Yuru lived a great life.
As for why Rui’an Great Elder Princess didn’t support her, it should be the fact that there might be some reasons for Rui’an Great Elder Princess to think that Qin Yuru was definitely not her biological granddaughter!
Even though she didn’t know the reason, she was clear that her grandmother had always been strong. If she firmly thought that Qin Yuru was not her granddaughter, she would not change her mind whatever other said.
This time, even though Qin Yuru married into Duke Yong’s Mansion, she would not have a good life. Shao Wanru had asked Shui Ruolan about the matter that day.
It was obvious that Qin Yuru plotted against Di Yan and let him have to marry her in a hurry. Duke Yong’s Mansion was going to cancel the engagement and Qin Huaiyong also agreed with that. At the beginning, they happily came to Qin’s Mansion and were ready for getting rid of this encumbrance but they didn’t expect that they would have to hurriedly let Di Yan marry Qin Yuru. Given that, everyone knew that it was a trap.
However, Di Yan could say nothing to defend himself because of the nature of this trap. Moreover, since Qin Yuru was crying badly and even tried to kill herself, this scandal would become worse if Di Yan refused to marry her.
Since Qin’s Mansion demanded Di Yan must marry Qin Yuru whatever happened, it also meant that she would not lead a good life in Duke Yong’s Mansion. Even though she had Old Madam of Duke Yong’s Mansion who supported her, her life would be tough in Duke Yong’s Mansion.
Countess Yong had always disliked Qin Yuru. In the last life, Di Yan and Qin Yuru had both pretended to enjoy the harmony between the husband and wife in the public as Di Yan didn’t dare to treat Qin Yuru badly because of her identity. Even though later he had an affair with Ning Caixian, he didn’t dare to admit but acted in a sneaky way. It was because they could not hide anymore that his affair was exposed.
At least, at the very beginning, Di Yan was willing to marry Qin Yuru sincerely.
This time, everything was totally different. Given Di Yan’s disposition, he would not be quiet and would not let Qin Yuru live a peaceful life in Duke Yong’s Mansion after being laughed at in the public since he was forced to marry Qin Yuru who was notorious.
Qin Yuru was not a person who could bear being wronged! Thus, the whole Duke Yong’s Mansion would not be tranquil!
Two lives were totally different. Even though some parts of them were the same, it didn’t matter. Thinking in this way, Shao Wanru finally felt relaxed.
She must get possessed just now!
Pinching her hand heavily, she clearly felt hurt in her hand and clearly realized that she was different from who she was in her last life.
This time, she had consolidated at every step. She would not repeat her tragedy and would not die hopelessly by being wronged by others…
“Hello? What is wrong with you? How can you just fall asleep after trying to flirt with me furtively?” Feeling her body was shaken by something, Shao Wanru opened her eyes and looked in the air blankly, not knowing where she was.
“Shao Wanru, you won’t be a woman who would discard me after having made use of me, will you?” The gentle voice sounded a bit disdainful. Shao Wanru turned around blankly and caught the right sight of Chu Liuchen in front of her.
His head supported with his elbow, he looked at Shao Wanru in a contemptuous and reprobative way.
Touching her head subconsciously, she found Chu Liuchen’s arm which should be under her head disappear. Finding that she didn’t know when he pulled his arm back, she finally realized that she fell asleep when thinking about those things.
Chu Liuchen felt funny as seeing Shao Wanru’s look changing from blank to surprised and noticing the red mark made by his jade when she put her face on his arm. How adorkable Shao Wanru was! She looked funny but also delicate.
Reaching out and touching her tender face in a very natural manner, he said, “You just want to touch me furtively so now I am going to want my touch back and maybe something more.”
“Something more?” Since Shao Wanru just woke up, she looked blank and repeated his word spontaneously with her shining and watery eyes fixed on Chu Liuchen.
“Of course. You know who I am. How can you touch my face so casually?! Since you have done this, you must let me touch yours. Haven’t you ever heard of the saying that debts should be paid?” Chu Liuchen explained in a leisurely manner, but inwardly he was totally amused by the red mark on her cute face!
Unlike the intelligent look she usually presented, she now looked so adorkable and cute.
“This, well, no. That’s not true.” Shao Wanru kept blinking her shining eyes, feeling something was wrong when hearing his words.
“Not true? For example, if you owe me a dinner, should you buy me one the next time you see me?” Chu Liuchen pretended to censure her and put on an innocent look.
Shao Wanru nodded in agreement and thought it was reasonable.
“However, if I buy you a dinner first, shouldn’t you need to buy me twice out of courtesy? And that is the ‘something more’ I just told you!” Chu Liuchen kept saying without hesitation.
It sounded a bit reasonable. Shao Wanru first nodded but then shook her head, confused.
Laughing, Chu Liuchen sat up and also helped Shao Wanru get up. “Come on. I wanna take you to meet a person!” Patting her head, he said happily.
“No, I am on silent retreat!” Shao Wanru finally became sober again and answered as she pulled Chu Liuchen’s sleeves.
“You won’t leave Yuhui Nunnery. There is a person who wants to meet you!” Chu Liuchen smiled gently. He stopped taking her hand, walked to the door and said to Xiao Xuanzi who had always been guarding the door, “Prepare the bamboo curtain.”
“Yes, I got it!” Xiao Xuanzi answered with a smile. Winking at Yujie, he chuckled and ran away.
When a silence fell in that room, Yujie was scared and was almost ready to run into the room. It was Xiao Xuanzi who stopped her.
See? Everything was fine, right?
