Medical Princess - Chapter 65
Qin Yuru was sent to Jingxin Monastery at that night. Old Grandma couldn’t be responsible when something terrible happened like this. She was not her parents but Qin Yuru’s grandma, so Qin Huaiyong and Madam Di were supposed to make decisions if anything happened.
Moreover, now she was both disappointed and heartbroken about Qin Yuru, so she decided not to deal with her issue anymore. Since Qin Yuru didn’t get Shui Ruolan involved into the event, she sent Nanny Duan by her side to take Qin Yuru away overnight and visit Qin Huaiyong for telling him the situation. Whatever would happen next have nothing to do with her.
Now that Qin Yuru was sent away, Shui Ruolan and Qin Wanru comforted Old Grandma for a while and served her to sleep.
Because of the previous event, Old Grandma began to cough severely after she went to bed. Her uncontrollable coughing made Shui Ruolan sent someone to invite the master from Jingxin Monastery. Then he prescribed the Old Grandma new medicine and asked the girl servant to decoct the medicine in the corridor.
Shui Ruolan sent the master of Jingxin Monastery to the door and expressed her gratitude repeatedly. When she turned back, she found Qin Wanru step out of the room standing there and waving to her.
“Wanru, come here!” She went into the room beside her after she finished the sentence. It was a rarely visited room and nobody was in it.
Qin Wanru responded to her and then followed Shui Ruolan to that isolated room.
“Wanru, what happened?” Shui Ruolan frowned at her and asked after they both stood there. Since she was not stupid, the entire case when connecting each part was bizarre no matter how hard she thought of it.
The sachet disappeared and the one at that moment was not hers for sure. So where was hers? Except for someone bumping into her, the only person approached her was Qin Wanru at that time.
“Aunt Shui, this is your sachet, be careful in the future!” While Qin Wanru was smiling, she reached to take a sachet out of her inner pocket and passed it to Shui Ruolan silently.
Shui Ruolan got stunned. She reached to take the sachet in a hurry and hid it into her sleeves.
“Aunt Shui, it was Big Sister who was conspiring against you and now she suffered the consequence herself.” Qin Wanru said briefly.
Her words made Shui Ruolan went into silence and her eyes felt sore. She was worried about Qin Wanru who was trying to protect her although she so small and her height could only reach to her shoulder.
She was never so determined that she wanted to protect this kid. She didn’t say anything but combed Qin Wanru’s hair by her ears, and suddenly millions of sensations and notions came into her mind. Her eyes became red because of tears but didn’t know where to start it.
Qin Wanru went back to her room after Old Grandma took medicine and got so much better.
Shui Ruolan stayed and ordered Qin Wanru to go back to sleep.
Qin Wanru went back to her own room and sat in front of the dressing table after she finished cleaning up herself.
“Miss, why did you save Young Lady?” Qing Yue asked confusedly while she twisted her hair to dry it up.
“If anything terrible happened to her, then grandma should be responsible for that because she followed grandma to live in this mountain!” Qin Wanru picked up a piece of dry towel and passed it to Qing Yue, and then Qing Yue changed the wet one in her hands.
Nothing should ever happen to Qin Yuru. Otherwise, Madam Di would go crazy and could drive her to do anything out of anyone’s expectations. Therefore, at least at this moment, Qin Yuru should be safe and sound.
“But now, did anything bad really happen to Young Lady in this way?” Qing Yue changed the towel and asked as if she comprehended it partially.
“This was an accident indeed but didn’t get exposed to the public yet. Since we could cover it, Madam Di would think the situation is reversible. However, many people saw her in a mess. It was heard that a large number of pilgrims in Jingxin Monastery were wives and daughters of businessmen in local, and they’ll leave someday.”
Qin Wanru said carefully and slowly.
“So did Miss mean that they would spread this information?” Qing Yue lit up and understood suddenly.
Qin Wanru nodded her head and touched the end of her hair and thought it was dried enough. Then she pointed out intentionally, “Jiangzhou is too far away from the capital city, and we’ll go back to the capital city eventually!”
For her previous life, Qin Huaiyong did well himself, so he returned to the capital city soon by using Duke Yong Mansion’s background.
The entirely irrelevant words made Qing Yue blinked her eyes, but thinking of the issue happened in the mansion, she understood, “so Miss meant that Madam and Young Lady would ruin your reputation after they go back to the capital city?”
This assumption made Qing Yue changed her facial expression immediately and she stammered, “but this is… is Young Lady’s own business.”
“If they wanted to blame things on me and Qi Tianyu would like to take testimony, considering the far distance between Jiangzhou and the capital city, then who’ll know?” Qin Wanru sneered and said. The girl in the mirror looked very childish but the pair of water-like eyes emanated profound darkness and depth.
This was not an alarmist talk, but something happened to her in the previous life.
But some businessmen would go to the capital city, so rumors could be spread when it was the right time. Or in other words, someone would say that she was on site during the rumor’s spreading.
“Madam and Young Lady are both too… too vicious!” Qing Yue took a deep and cold breath and said in dismay, “Miss… then… then what should we do? General… General and Old Grandma’ll say true words, right?”
“Grandma is in poor health… father… although father concerns about me, Big Sister is his daughter after all.” A sneer showed up on her lips.
Qin Huaiyong was amiable and couldn’t be regarded as an ungrateful man when he was treating her along. But when it comes to his daughter, the situation changed. After all, that was his daughter and Qin Huaiyong would never sacrifice his daughter for someone else’s So guilty as he felt, Qin Huaiyong would watch aside.
She saw it clearly after she experienced in her previous life.
Qin Huaiyong could feel Qin Huaiyong’s fatherhood in the absence of any conflicts. But he would make a compromise to Madam Di when she and Qin Yuru had conflicts.
“Then… then what should we do?” Qing Yue was so panic that she almost loosed her grasp of the towel. Miss was helpless and isolated, and none of them in the entire General’s Mansion could protect her.
“Don’t worry, I’ll have Aunt Shui help me!” Qin Wanru said to Qing Yue in the mirror gently. After this issue, Shui Ruolan’s hesitation should disappear although she was confused. Actually, just like herself, Madam Di found no way out when she started to scheme.
Qin Wanru was afraid that Shui Ruolan couldn’t see it clearly as she just took the sachet out.
They were both isolated and independent. Shui Ruolan was short of legal and decent identity, and she was too young to make others take her words seriously. What she said were only childish things.
“Will Miss Shui protect you?” Qing Yue put a towel on her chest subconsciously.
“Maybe, and Aunt Shui’ll protect my grandma and me, and I’ll protect them too.” Qin Wanru nodded her head and said. Her previous lives were several weak people and for this time, she would never allow others to bully her. If she didn’t have the rebirth, it was afraid that she would take the same life she had before.
A girl, lacking protection, was like a useless grass living in the world.
On hearing Miss’s words, an inexplicable pain was flowing in Qing Yue’s bosom. She felt hurt for her and she thought if Second Miss was not smart as she was, maybe she had lost her lives years ago.
“So, I must be powerful.” Qin Wanru’s curling and long eyelashes fluttered, dropping untrimmed shadows beneath her eyes and portraying a sense of misery. She showed a smile on her red lips, but it was sad and dismal.
She was floating rootlessly in destiny in her previous life and was finally trampled into hell suffering endless bloody miseries. She died in vain under others’ knives and even left no bones or body.
But for her current life, she would never retreat!
Qing Yue looked at Qin Wanru sitting by the dressing table, her gorgeous but tiny face wearing a facial expression that could only be seen on an adult. But Qing Yue didn’t find it contradictory to Qin Wanru’s style and it even gave her a sense of security as if Qing Wanru could really protect people around her in this way.
She looked calmed gradually.
Feeling the calm of Qing Yue and wearing a faint but mild smile, Qin Wanru lifted her head slightly. Qing Yue was very loyal to her and she required her support to continue going forward. She didn’t expect that Qing Yue would have confusion and panic because of her.
Confidence, she would give Qing Yue confidence and courage!
“Second Miss, then how to deal with Young Lady’s issue?” Qing Yue looked at Qin Wanru in a respected way that she didn’t even notice, and asked.
Although Miss was still underage, she was dignified and her words valued. She had faith in her Miss.
“I’ll go to the capital city!” Qin Wanru looked at Qing Yue with admiration. Then she stood up and stroke her beautiful hair.
“Going to the capital city? That fast? Didn’t the General say that he had no idea when to go to the capital city?” Qing Yue put down her towel and sat next to Qin Wanru, grabbing a comb and combing her pretty hair.
“Not my father but Qin Yuru’ll go to the capital city because she couldn’t stay in Jiangzhou anymore!” There was a sneer on her Qin Wanru’s lips. In her previous life, Qin Yuru did go to the capital city first, but not for this life. In this life, Qin Yuru destroyed her reputation at all and staying would only things worse.
It is inevitable to go to the capital city and live in Duke Yong Mansion to stay away from the trouble and rumors temporarily.
“What… what about Madam?” Qing Yue asked.
“She won’t go, Aunt Shui is still here, and she’s worried!” On seeing her hair was combed smoothly already, Qin Wanru stood up and said gently. If that thing didn’t happen to Shui Ruolan, Madam Di was supposed to leave. But now she had to stay in Jiangzhou. Separating Madam Di from Qin Yuru was a useful thing for Qin Wanru.
Madam Di was different from Qin Yuru.
After all, Qin Yuru was only a young lady of this large family lacking company of her parents, so her bad words about Qin Yuru could only be heard by several people. Moreover, she had to talk about it implicitly or ask her servants to spread the rumors.
Madam Di was different. She was regarded as the elder in the family by her mother’s side, and Duke Yong in the capital city was her mother’s family. She knew many people, so she wouldn’t be scrupulous when people were gossiping in front of her. But she would surely stir up more trouble if she went to capital city so that it wouldn’t have anything good to her.
Separating Madam Di and her daughter was part of her next step’s schedule originally.
Qing Yue retreated and Qin Wanru went to bed and thought for a while calmly. At last, she couldn’t fight back her tiredness and fell into sleep.
The daytime of autumn lingered some intense heat occasionally, but the night was cold enough to make people shiver. Windows were shut early in case the cold wind would intrude into the room in the evening. However,the tightly closed window made the lowest noise was pierced and opened silently in the midnight…
