Medical Princess - Chapter 598
“What a good investigation of people’s situation, and you even investigate in the opera garden!” The emperor said coldly.
“Father, it’s true. If you don’t believe me, you can check it. I really feel that the rumors outside are a little weird. She is just a weak woman who was forced to go to the Yuhui Nunnery. I can tell at a glance that she was framed by someone. Her fate is pitiful, but there are so many rumors. I think it’s wrong!”
Chu Liuxin said boldly, with a rather angry expression on his face.
“Fourth brother, don’t talk too much to make father angry!” Chu Liuyue scolded him in a low voice.
“I am…” Chu Liuxin, who had always listened to Chu Liuyue, was not so easy to appease this time. He was wronged and said.
Chu Liuyue pulled his sleeve at full tilt and glared at him, signaling him to shut up.
“Father, I am wrong. If I want to investigate anything in the future, I will report it to you first. I will never cross the line!” Chu Liuxin reluctantly admitted his mistake!
Two eunuchs came in in a hurry to report. De Rong stopped them at the door. When he heard their report, he could only come in and report to the emperor with a bitter face. In fact, this kind of thing could not be dealt with in a big or small way. But since the two eunuchs said so, he could only report it in this way.
“Your Majesty, the bunch of fancy carp in the Flower Garden are all dead. They say… say… they say…there are…scourges…”
“Your Majesty, some Tang Qianyan, which were in full bloom in the flower room, is dead. They say … say that … there are scourges…”
Before he could finish his words, he was hit on the head and knelt down in a hurry. “Your Majesty, I know it’s a rumor, but people in the palace are also talking about it now. If something happens, they will say … it is because of this!”
De Rong also hated it. The Emperor was not in a good mood at the moment. It was obviously because of the rumor of the “scourges”. These people were not wise and came to report the “scourges”. It was obvious that they were not in charge of their own affairs and did not manage it well. After the accident, they casually pushed it to the “scourges”. They were just trying to shirk the responsibility.
However, they didn’t expect that the emperor would be even angrier with these words!
“Beat the two slaves who spread rumors 50 times!” The Emperor flew into a rage.
If they were beaten 50 times, they would definitely lose their lives. What’s more, the laws and skills in the palace were naturally more powerful than those outside the palace.
“Yes!” De Rong did not dare to plead for mercy. He stood up, bent over, and stepped back.
“Uncle-in-law, please wait for a moment!” The elegant and noble voice in the imperial study seemed abrupt but gentle at this time as if it immediately defused the serious anger in the whole study.
“What do you want to say, Prince Chen?” Seeing that it was Chu Liuchen who spoke, the emperor calmed down a little bit. Although there was still no smile on his face, his voice became soft.
“Uncle, after 50 beats, these two servants must be dead. Uncle, you’d better save their lives and interrogate them. Maybe you will know why there are rumors in the palace. In the past, no matter how powerful the rumors were, they couldn’t affect the palace. Maybe it’s because…” Chu Liuchen frowned tightly. Although his voice was gentle, he looked a little gloomy.
At this point, he didn’t say anything more. He slowly lowered his head and didn’t say anything.
Prince Zhou couldn’t stand it anymore. He kowtowed to the emperor and said loudly, “Father, maybe there is someone who is spreading the rumor in the palace. Someone must have done it in secret. I hope that father could investigate this matter and give mother justice.”
It was the Empress who was in charge of the harem. Now that rumors were everywhere, this matter would inevitably be pushed to the Empress. Originally, Prince Zhou wanted to see the fun, but now he couldn’t help but stand out and defend his mother’s reputation.
He glanced at his brothers severely. He wanted to see who did this. In the end, his eyes fell on Chu Liuyue. He still thought that Chu Liuyue was most likely to do this. Obviously, he wanted to do harm to him, the legitimate son of the Empress. He had to start with his mother. If Chu Liuyue did harm to his mother, he would lose his status as the legitimate son.
Chu Liuyue was the eldest son. If he was not the legitimate son, he would not be able to compete with him.
“Ask the Empress to manage the harem. If there are any people who spread the rumors, just punish them directly. Send the two servants to the Empress’ palace and let her investigate them at the same time. Let’s see who will spread rumors in the palace!” The Emperor said coldly.
“Yes, I’ll send someone to report it to Queen right away!” De Rong answered and left.
“She is just a little girl in the backyard, and she is your cousin. She just can’t stay in harmony with Duke Xing’s Mansion. Now she is called a scourge. If she is a scourge, and you are her cousin, are you scourges?” The emperor sneered and looked at his sons kneeling below.
It happened all of a sudden and he hadn’t figured it out yet. But it was obvious that she had been framed. In the eyes of the emperor, the matter of Duke Xing’s Mansion was a dispute in the backyard. It was really not a big deal.
Although Rui’an Great Elder Princess had told him a few times, the Emperor could only politely ask Great Elder Princess to find the Empress Dowager or the Empress to deal with this matter. This kind of thing was not a big deal in the emperor’s eyes, but if this matter was getting bigger, there must be someone behind it.
Thinking that Shao Wanru had another hidden identity that she would be the wife of Chu Liuchen. The emperor could not constrain his anger no matter how hard he tried. It was obvious that the person wanted to go against Chu Liuchen.
What scourge? If she was really a scourge, would Chen’er’s body get better and better?
Others might not know, but the emperor was well aware of it. As early as when Chu Liuchen decided to marry Shao Wanru, he had asked the Imperial Astronomical Observatory to calculate the fate of the two people. It was said that they were made for each other. And it was also said the two people’s marriage was also very good for Chu Liuchen’s health.
The current Imperial Astronomical Observatory was trusted by the emperor, so he would not believe that Shao Wanru was a scourge because of these rumors. In addition, Chu Liuchen’s health was indeed better than before, and the emperor was sure that Shao Wanru was a piece of luck for him.
It was obvious that someone couldn’t bear to see Chu Liuchen become better by describing Shao Wanru as a scourge. Chu Liuchen obviously realized this just now, and he looked so sad.
As long as he thought of this, the emperor would be very furious.
“Father, I don’t dare!”
“I don’t dare, too!”…
Hearing the emperor’s words, the three princes all lowered their heads and said that they didn’t dare repeatedly. A cold sweat broke out on their foreheads.
Chu Liuchen said nothing and continued to lower his head, but his face became more and more gloomy. After a long while, he raised his head and said softly, “Uncle, you don’t have to be angry. Let’s check it out first!”
The emperor took a deep breath, glared at his three sons, and said loudly, “Look into it. Find out all the rumors outside as well. Ask the lord mayor to send people to various playhouses and libraries to find out all the suspicious people.”
After coming out of the imperial study, Chu Liuyue took a deep breath and looked at the main hall outside the imperial study. He only felt stuffy in his chest. Originally, he thought it was just a matter of a little girl, but he didn’t expect it to be so big. He just wanted to help Shao Yanru but he didn’t expect that there were so many people who followed him to spread the rumors. Someone must know that it had something to do with him, so he took advantage of it secretly.
“Brother, who do you think will do this to kill a girl?” Prince Zhou followed him out with a gloomy face. Looking at his face, he said in a strange tone, “The flowers and fish in the palace are dead. Is it this scourge’s fault? This guy is so stupid to think of this kind of thing.”
“Eldest brother, second brother, I also think that the person who thinks of this is stupid. Fifth Miss Shao is such a good person, but she has been persecuted to such an extent. No matter from what perspective, I believe it is the people of Duke Xing’s Mansion who did it. It is clearly said that people of Duke Xing’s Mansion are trying to hurt Fifth Miss.”
Chu Liuxin also followed them. After hearing their words, he said angrily.
He was really angry. Fifth Miss Shao was such a beautiful and kind person, how could she be stained like this? The most important thing was that he wanted to find an opportunity to talk about Fifth Miss Shao with his mother. If his mother agreed, he could go to his father to ask for his marriage. Unexpectedly, such a thing happened. Now the matter had not been settled, how could he dare to say such a thing?
Her mother always believed in the Buddha. If she knew a little rumor about the scourge, it would be impossible for her to agree with this. As long as he thought of this, Chu Liuxin was so angry that he wanted to strangle the person who said such a thing to death.
Who was so disgusting by spreading rumors!
“Fourth brother, don’t talk nonsense!” Chu Liuyue looked at him coldly and spoke in a low voice.
“What’s wrong with me? It must be them. They said that they were going to send Fifth Miss Shao to Baiyun Taoist Temple, and then First Miss Shao gave Fifth Miss an ointment with poison. All these things had something to do with Duke Xing’s Mansion. Then it suddenly appeared that Fifth Miss was described as a scourge. If it had nothing to do with Duke Xing’s Mansion, who would it have something to do with!”
Chu Liuxin jumped and said. The more he thought about it, the angrier he became. Did someone know what he meant and deliberately want to spoil his marriage?
However, no one knew that he liked Shao Wanru except for those who followed him to Duke Xing’s Mansion that day, or those from Duke Xing’s Mansion had found through something?
Thinking of this, it became more and more credible.
“Fourth brother, be careful with your words. If father hears it, he will punish you. How can you talk about the important officials in the court at will!” Prince Zhou also advised in a cold voice. He glanced at Prince Xin from the corner of his eyes. Prince Zhou really didn’t take Prince Xin, who was a little too childish, seriously.
“Hey, what do you mean by helping Duke Xing’s Mansion?” Chu Liuxin was full of anger at this time. When he heard the two of them scolding him, he was so furious that he blurted out.
After that, without looking at their unhappy expression, he stamped his feet angrily, turned around, and strode away.
Chu Liuyue frowned and his expression didn’t change. “Fourth brother is still so childish. This thing can’t be as simple as it looks on the surface!”
“Brother, you also know that this matter is not simple. I don’t know who set such a trap to deal with a weak girl. He is really something!” Chu Liuzhou sneered and was not in the mood to show his respect to Chu Liuyue. He turned and went to the Empress’ palace.
He felt that Chu Liuyue was most likely to do it.
Chu Liuyue frowned, and then his eyes fell on Chu Liuchen, who was the last to come out. The wheelchair was skillfully carried out by two guards at the door. After it was put down, Xiao Xuanzi pushed it over from the back.
