Medical Princess - Chapter 606
Qin Yuru thought of the meeting with Qi Rongzhi, Qi Rongzhi’s words, and that she set up the trap as Qi Rongzhi told her, and then Shao Wanru ran into an accident. But after that, the old maid shifted the blame onto the Qin’s Mansion. In this case, she would probably be associated with the accident. How could Qin Yuru bear such a result?
After tidying herself up, Qin Yuru stood up and said with a gloomy face, “Let’s go to meet grandma!”
Her current grandma was her previous maternal grandma and the only person in Duke Yong’s Mansion who was nice to her. Now her grandma was the only one who could help her.
Since Shao Yanru dared to set her up so that both Shao Wanru and her suffered great losses, she would not let Shao Yanru get what she wanted!
In the main room, the only room with lights on, of a courtyard of Rui’an Great Elder Princess’s Mansion, Shao Wanru leaned against the couch, while Doctor Qi was feeling her pulse.
Great Elder Princess sat on the edge of the couch, frowning uneasily. She, who had always sat straight elegantly, stooped slightly and looked uneasy and nervous at the moment.
It was Chu Liuchen who sat on the other chair. He picked up the teacup and took a sip, and then glanced at Great Elder Princess and comforted her in a gentle voice, “Don’t worry, great-aunt. Zhuozhuo will be fine!”
Great Elder Princess nodded in response to Chu Liuchen’s words, but she still fixed her eyes on Doctor Qi for fear of seeing any unusual expression on his face.
Qi Jue finally put down his hand.
“Doctor Qi, how is Zhuozhuo?” Rui’an Great Elder Princess asked nervously.
“Your Highness, rest assured. She’s just been frightened a little. It’s nothing serious!” Qi Jue said with a smile.
“Well, what should we pay special attention to?” After breathing a sigh of relief, Rui’an Great Elder Princess still asked worriedly.
“Your Highness, you don’t have to be overanxious. She just needs to rest for some time!” Qi Jue said. Glancing at Chu Liuchen, who was sitting aside and enjoying his tea, he really wanted to tell Great Elder Princess that the Fifth Miss, who was lying on the couch, was actually fine!
In fact, how could the Fifth Miss get hurt? The secret guard took her to a tree on the cliff and hung her on it. Not long after that, someone came up to save her. Although it looked a little bit dangerous to hang her on the tree, it was actually no big deal. From his point of view, the Fifth Miss was quite bold and absolutely incomparable to ordinary Young Ladies.
Even the idea of hanging her on a tree was put forward by the Fifth Miss.
“Is she really fine?” Great Elder Princess asked worriedly again.
“It’s nothing serious!” Qi Jue promised again.
Seeing that Qi Jue promised again, Great Elder Princess finally felt relieved. She grabbed Shao Wanru’s hand and said angrily, “Zhuozhuo, do you know who intended to hurt you?”
Great Elder Princess, whose mind had been occupied by Shao Wanru’s condition, finally had time to ask about the accident before.
“Great-aunt, you can send someone to check the traces over there now. If I didn’t miss my guess, they had probably used the grass that could drive the horse crazy!”
Chu Liuchen said.
“What grass?” Rui’an Great Elder Princess asked in astonishment. She had neither heard of this kind of grass nor known this kind of thing.
“Changxing grass, a kind of grass can drive horses crazy. There should be this kind of grass by the road, along which the carriage came down, and the road leads to the cliff! This kind of grass is planted in the border areas, where nomadic people live, rather than in the Central Plains, and this kind of grass is very rare even in the areas.”
Qi Jue explained.
This kind of grass drove the horse crazy so that the horse fell off the cliff. No one could find anything unusual. Moreover, the horse had fallen into the lake and died, which made it more difficult to find out the truth!
The one set up such a trap at the intersection, where those in the teahouse could see it clearly, in order to make those people witnesses of the carriage falling off the cliff accidentally.
The slippery road wet by the rain yesterday, the dark sky, and the coachman, who got slack when they were going to arrive at the foot of the mountain, the above factors were enough to convince others that it was just an accident. What they should do now was to restore the case, where all the traces had been wiped out, to an accident!
Changxing grass was the only thing capable of making the horse lose control at the section accurately. Nevertheless, what was certain was that even if Changxing grass had been used in the plot, it had probably been cleaned. But Chu Liuchen happened to have a few blades of Changxing grass.
“I’ll send someone to check it now!” As Rui’an Great Elder Princess said in rage, she stood up and was about to go out.
“Great-aunt, wait a moment. The grass may have been cleaned up now. You may find nothing even if you go there!” Chu Liuchen waved his hand and said. Xiao Xuanzi stood out from behind him and handed a small box to Great Elder Princess.
“Great-aunt, there are a few Changxing grass. Send someone to take them there, bury them in the mud and step on them to make them look smashed. After that, you can go there and find some traces in front of a group of people. Remember to leave one or two of them for the Ministry of Justice!” Chu Liuchen narrowed his eyes and said lazily.
Ordinary people didn’t know Changxing grass, but the members of the Ministry of Justice were different. There were certainly some talents knowing well about something obscure in the Ministry of Justice, so it was most suitable to let them find the grass.
Rui’an Great Elder Princess understood what Chu Liuchen meant. She nodded, immediately instructed someone to take the box and then left in a hurry.
“Doctor Qi, if there is nothing else, you should go back early!” Chu Liuchen waved his hand and said to Doctor Qi, who was still wiping his hands slowly.
Qi Jue had no choice but to roll his eyes since he knew that Chu Liuchen was the kind of person who burnt the bridge after crossing it.
It was obviously him who was invited here by Great Elder Princess, but Chu Liuchen insisted on coming with him. Now Chu Liuchen even drove him, who led Chu Liuchen here, away. Alas, he was so unfortunate to have such an ungrateful master!
Glancing at the delicate Fifth Miss Shao, who was leaning against the couch, Qi Jue was really worried about her. She was so pitiful to be the evil man’s future wife!
He complained in his heart but didn’t dare to show it on his face. Despite his reluctance, he still asked slowly, “Your Highness, should I wait for you outside and go back with you?”
“No, you can go back now!” Chu Liuchen waved his hand, said curtly, and glanced at Qi Jue with cold eyes. Qi Jue, who was frightened, involuntarily sped up, packed up his medicine chest neatly, and walked out of the room joyfully.
Did his master mean it?
Chu Liuchen waved his hand. Xiao Xuanzi winked at Yujie, who stood in front of the bed, and then swung his arms and turned to walk out.
Yujie hesitated for a moment and looked at Shao Wanru. Seeing Shao Wanru nod at her, she got out of the room.
“Do you want some water?” Chu Liuchen looked at Shao Wanru and said, picking up the kettle on the table and pouring a cup of water for her.
Shao Wanru sat up and nodded.
Chu Liuchen came over with a cup of water and handed her the cup. Shao Wanru reached out to take it and drank half of the water before putting it down.
In fact, she took no risk when being hung on the tree. If she fell down, she would fall into the lake. Even if her life would not be in danger, her reputation would be ruined.
There were hardly any ladies, who could get her out of the water, and plenty of onlookers. If her clothes got wet, her reputation would be tarnished.
So at that time, she held the branch tightly, for fear that she would fall down accidentally when the wind blew over.
Chu Liuchen took the cup from her hand and grabbed her hand hard.
Shao Wanru screamed in pain and her face immediately turned pale. Although Doctor Qi had applied medicine to her wound, she still felt a sharp pain when he pressed her wound so hard. Besides, she had sprained her ankle and not recovered yet, and she had probably bumped into something when being rescued. In fact, her legs were also injured.
She only said that her hand was injured without mentioning other injured parts for fear of making Great Elder Princess overanxious.
“Are you afraid of pain?” Chu Liuchen said with a handsome but annoying smile and spread Shao Wanru’s palm to have a look. Her palm bled after being pinched by him, which made Shao Wanru frown in pain.
Shao Wanru nodded and looked pitiful. She appeared to be fine, but in fact, she had plenty of wounds.
“Take off your dress and let me have a look!” Chu Liuchen said and looked down at her dress, which was messy and torn.
“I… You don’t need to do that. In fact, it’s nothing serious!” Shao Wanru said with a red face and intended to withdraw her hand. But her hand was held tightly by Chu Liuchen and she could not withdraw it.
“Would you like me to help you or do it yourself?” Chu Liuchen raised his eyebrows and said lazily.
Shao Wanru hesitated for a moment and thought about it. Knowing that he was not the kind of person following the rules, she lifted the hem of her dress and then her pants under her dress with a blush on her face.
Under her pants, he could see several scratches with dried blood stains on her white and tender skin, and some of them looked serious.
With his eyes becoming deeper, Chu Liuchen put the cup in his hand on the table, crouched down in front of the bed, and reached out to tear off her pants. At the sight of more wounds, he compressed his thin lips with apparent anger on his taut handsome face.
“Shao Wanru, you played quite a good trick and were quite cruel to yourself!” Chu Liuchen said with a sneer, reaching out to fetch a wet towel from the basin beside him and begin to wipe her wounds.
He wiped her wounds so hard that her wounds, which had been scarred before, bled again at once. Shao Wanru couldn’t help groaning, stared at Chu Liuchen with tears in pain, and begged, “Your Highness, please be gentle!”
“Why didn’t you ask those trees to be gentle before?” Chu Liuchen said and focused on wiping her wounds hard. He then looked up at Shao Wanru with dark waves rolling in his eyes as if something was going to be washed ashore. His overwhelming aura made her unable to speak at the moment.
“I…” Shao Wanru said. She was in so much pain that she almost cried and could only look at Chu Liuchen pitifully. Of course, it was not the time to pretend to be tough now. “I… I didn’t know that I would be terribly hurt!”
“You didn’t know?” Chu Liuchen said, lowered his head again and began to wipe her wounds even hard. Another wound of hers bled. “If you didn’t know it, how could you put yourself in such danger? I didn’t expect that the Fifth Miss of Duke Xing’s Mansion could be so cruel to herself. It’s the first time that I’ve seen such a Miss!”
