Medical Princess - Chapter 549
“I also think so!” Nanny Gao also frowned. In any case, this could not be a good thing. The marriage between Prince Chen and cousin Miss had already been approved by Empress Dowager and Emperor. It would be not good for cousin Miss, if Prince Xin showed such a meaning at this time.
If Emperor and Empress Dowager noticed this, they might think that cousin Miss had hooked up with Prince Xin.
“It’s time to find an opportunity to talk to Consort Ming about this. I believe that Consort Ming will not like the marriage between Prince Xin and Zhuozhuo either!” Great Elder Princess thought for a while and said.
Consort Ming was bent on finding a daughter-in-law who could help Chu Liuxin. Although Zhuozhuo depended on Duke Xing’s Mansion, she was like being without relying on, and might even be worse than having no reliance. As for Great Elder Princess, she had a high position but no power. Thus, considering Consort Ming’s temperament, she would definitely not accept Zhuozhuo.
“Great Elder Princess, you are right. It is better if Prince Xin can take the initiative to give up!” Nanny Gao nodded repeatedly. No one knew when the marriage between Prince Chen and cousin Miss would be announced. Before the formal announcement, cousin Miss’s reputation could not be damaged. Nor could the gossip of improper contact with Prince Xin be spread.
But this young man was enamored with Zhuozhuo. Was it really easy to separate them?
“Cousin, cousin!” Chu Liuxin shouted from behind. Shao Wanru wanted to pretend that she heard nothing, but he had shouted so loudly that she could still hear him even if she were deaf.
She turned around helplessly and waited for him to cross two fences and run towards her.
“Is there anything else, Your Highness?” Shao Wanru raised her smiling face helplessly and asked.
“I just want to ask whether you are going to Duke Xing’s Mansion. I happen to have something to ask your elder brother. Let’s go together!” Chu Liuxin ran a little faster and said after a gasp.
“I am going to Duke Xing’s Mansion.” Shao Wanru turned around and continued to go outside.
Chu Liuxin hurriedly caught up with her and said excitedly, “Originally, I have decided to meet First Young Master before, but I was so busy these days that I didn’t have time to go. I happen to meet Cousin Wanru today, so let’s go there together!”
“Your Highness, did you follow my carriage before?” Shao Wanru asked.
“Yes, did you notice this? I was waiting for your carriage at the foot of the mountain. I saw that Miss Shao’s carriage and yours went in two different directions, so I came over. Eunuch Liu’s idea is good. Old Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion is sick, so you will definitely come down the mountain.” Chu Liuxin said proudly.
Sure enough, it was Chu Liuxin who had followed her just now. Shao Wanru was relieved in her heart. It would be fine as long as it was not arranged by Duke Xing’s Mansion.
“Cousin, how long will you still stay in Yuhui Nunnery?” Chu Liuxin asked.
“About half a year!” Shao Wanru replied.
“The scenery in the Yuhui Nunnery is really good. I originally wanted to go to the Yuhui Nunnery, but I am not convenient in time, because there have been too many people in the Ministry of Justice recently. If there is no reason, my father will not allow me to go to the Yuhui Nunnery at this time!” Chu Liuxin complained. In fact, he had wanted to go to the Yuhui Nunnery early. However, too many things had happened in the Yuhui Nunnery recently.
Shao Wanru looked at Chu Liuxin, whose thoughts were so elastic, and said, “There are few male pilgrims in Yuhui Nunnery.” Compared with the other princes, Chu Liuxin was the youngest one, and he also had the least stable character.
“Last time, the Buddha hall was burned in the fire, and then men in black appeared. It is really an unlucky year in the Yuhui Nunnery. Anything can happen. Someone went to the Yuhui Nunnery to file a suit before. He did not go to the lobby of the Ministry of Justice but went to the Yuhui Nunnery to sue. What’s going on here?”
Chu Liuxin curled his lips and said with disdain.
Shao Wanru tingled with a thought and asked, “Why did he go to the Yuhui Nunnery to file a suit?”
“It is said that if someone wants to sue in the court of the Ministry of Justice, he has to go through several obstacles first. However, Yuhui Nunnery is investigating this case. As long as the right person can be found, the case will be settled with a confession!” Chu Liuxin said casually, “The Ministry of Justice has also accepted the case. People there thought it was not a big case, and they only needed to deal with a young ruffian. Unexpectedly, something else has happened!”
“What happened?” Shao Wanru kept asking. They had come all the way almost to the parking lot.
“Just the posthumous child of the former emperor. What a joke! The only child of the former emperor is Third Brother. It seems that there is another child!” Chu Liuxin also looked at the parking lot. However, he only saw Shao Wanru’s carriage and didn’t see his. He couldn’t help but turn back to find Eunuch Liu.
Chu Liuxin had run too fast just now and left Eunuch Liu behind him. At this time, Eunuch Liu was rushing over, and he finally saw Chu Liuxin after cornering a door.
“Your Highness, you are wrong. Our carriage did not stop here.”
“Not here, but where?” Chu Liuxin said discontentedly.
Shao Wanru took the opportunity to say goodbye to him. “Your Highness, I will go first!”
After saying that, she walked towards her own carriage with Yujie. When she got to the front, she saw that the coachman had been changed.
“Greetings, Fifth Miss. I am sent by Great Elder Princess to drive the carriage for Fifth Miss for the time being.” The coachman said respectfully. He looked like he was in his 30s.
“Where is the former one?” Shao Wanru asked calmly.
“When the carriage stopped here just now, he quarreled with a servant in the mansion, and they fought with each other. According to the order from Great Elder Princess, that coachman, who has no sense of propriety, can’t drive for Fifth Miss. Just now, someone was sent to take him back to Duke Xing’s Mansion.” The coachman reported.
Shao Wanru nodded and knew that her grandmother had well dealt with this matter. She stepped on the small stool and got on the carriage. Yujie also jumped into the carriage. After the coachman got on the carriage, he turned around and skillfully raised the whip to pull the carriage to the side door.
Chu Liuxin followed the carriage and helplessly stamped his feet. He was very angry and said, “Eunuch Liu, why isn’t our carriage with Fifth Miss Shao’s?”
“I… I don’t know. Just now people from Great Elder Princess’s mansion led us in this way. Your Highness, let’s go there!” Seeing that his master was unhappy, Eunuch Liu answered carefully.
“Let’s go!” Chu Liuxin said helplessly. He went back now, and it would be late even if he also went to Duke Xing’s Mansion.
In the carriage, Yujie was also in a dilemma. “Miss, the coachman of Duke Xing’s Mansion has been changed. Will Old Madam be angry with you?”
“Even if the coachman were not changed, she would also be angry with me from time to time. Originally she is not pleased with me. If I please her at the price of something happening to me, I might as well not please her!” Shao Wanru said indifferently with a faint smile on her face.
Using her own life to please Old Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion, she was unwilling to do so!
For the so-called grandmother who always wanted to hurt her, she really did not think there was any need to please her! As for the so-called grandmother-granddaughter relation, Old Madam would not remember it, and she would forget it!
“Will Old Madam change the person again?” Yujie was still worried. Great Elder Princess did this in an oversimplified and crude way, and Old Madam of Duke Xing’s Mansion was not a pushover either.
“She may do so in the past, but at this time, she will not. Duke Xing’s Mansion is much in the wrong!” Shao Wanru sneered, and a trace of coldness flashed in her eyes.
“In your opinion, does Old Madam know that Xiushui priest is a fake priest? If she knows this and still does so, she is so vicious!”
Yujie understood what Shao Wanru had been talking about and said angrily after thinking for a while.
It was indeed not like being done by a human being. After all, that was a den of lewdness.
“So what, even if she knows it or not? That kind of mansion makes me sick!” Shao Wanru sneered with a cold look in her eyes.
The carriage inside suddenly became quiet. Yujie felt sorry for her when she saw the cold indifference on Shao Wanru’s small jade-like face. Shao Wanru was such a good Miss, but all she met were such disgusting and vicious relatives.
Those relatives pretended to be kind on the appearance, but in fact, they were really heartless and cruel.
The carriage went all the way forward and it did not take long to arrive at Duke Xing’s Mansion. Hearing that Shao Wanru had come back, Madam of Duke Xing excitedly went out to greet her and they met not far from the gate.
“Wanru, you finally come back. Your grandmother was talking about you just now. Come here!” Madam of Duke Xing smiled warmly and looked very excited as if she was really happy because Shao Wanru came to visit Old Madam and Old Madam also sincerely missed her.
In fact, Old Madam was ill. She had sent a letter to ask Shao Yanru to go down the mountain and had not mentioned Shao Wanru at all.
Shao Wanru bowed deeply to salute Madam of Duke Xing and said, “Second aunt!”
“Look, you look as beautiful as a flower, but have to stay in the nunnery every day. If your parents know this in the other world, they will also be happy to have a filial daughter like you!” Madam of Duke Xing picked up a handkerchief and pretended to wipe her tears. She looked Shao Wanru up and down secretly, and the more she looked at Shao Wanru, the more frightened she became.
She hadn’t seen Shao Wanru for more than two years. Just now, she recognized Shao Wanru at a glance because the old maid beside her was the one who had gone up the mountain with Old Madam.
Unexpectedly, this girl looked really good. Her face was as beautiful as a fairy in a painting. She was not only beautiful but also naturally charming, which made Madam of Duke Xing even more disgusted. How could a Miss from an aristocratic family have such a natural charm? Even though her every move was the same as others’, her actions looked more gentle and charming.
Back then, Infanta Qinghua had possessed a kind of charm, and she was a little less charming than this girl in front of her. But even so, she had still made her cousin obsessed with her and want to marry her even though he had had to go against Old Madam.
What was so good about such appearance? She looked lowly and mean at first glance. She was not as elegant and graceful as her daughter, who looked like a daughter of an aristocratic family.
She was disdainful in her heart, but she did not show it on her face, and she beamed with smiles. She let Shao Wanru in, and said as if she was unconscious, “Was the previous coachman not good? If you don’t like him, just tell me, and I will change a new coachman for you immediately. You are the Fifth Miss of Duke Xing’s Mansion. You can change any coachman!”
It seemed that she said this fully for Shao Wanru’s own good, but the meaning sounded not good. Obviously, she was blaming Shao Wanru for taking the liberty of changing the coachman.
“Second Aunt, are you talking about the matter that the coachman fought with someone before? This has been handled by my grandmother, so I don’t know the specific circumstance. If Second Aunt feels that there is something wrong, you can send someone to tell my grandmother. Now I am using the coachman sent by my grandmother now. If Second Aunt thinks that this is inappropriate, you can also tell my grandmother!” Shao Wanru said as she walked inside.
Her expression was indifferent and alienated. Her words were just like what Madam of Duke Xing had said. They sounded pleasant, but after thinking about it carefully, how could Madam of Duke Xing dare to question Rui’an Great Elder Princess!
Madam of Duke Xing understood this well. She hated Shao Wanru very much in her heart, but she couldn’t show this feeling on her face. She could only smile and said, “It is just a trifle, a trifle. Let’s go and see your grandmother together!”
This was a trifle, but she failed to purposely make difficulties for her. She wanted to see how this girl would end up when Old Madam made difficulties for her. Great Elder Princess was too far away, so it was impossible for her to help…
