Medical Princess - Chapter 67
“Young Lady, have you gotten up?” Qing Yue walked through the door. Seeing Qin Wanru had well dressed and stood there, she was stupefied.
“I can’t sleep on the mountain!” Qin Wanru tugged at her sleeves and explained. Then, she changed the subject, “What happened?”
“There was an accident on the opposite side. It was said that there was a man who entered the opposite womenfolk’ window at night. Just in the courtyard opposite us, I feared that something happened to you, so I ran in!” Seeing that Qin Wanru was safe and sound, Qing Yue sighed with relief and hurriedly reported.
“Let’s go and see!” Qin Wanru sat down in front of the dressing table. “Just give me a simple one.”
Qing Yue nodded and stepped forward. She skillfully twisted Qin Wanru’s hair into two buns without wearing jewelry, and only tied two hair bands.
When Qin Wanru took Qing Yue to the opposite room, a lot of people were there, and many people were alarmed. Even the nuns from Jingxin Monastery rushed to maintain order.
The man in black had already woken up. He was held on the ground by two stout old women, with his hands tied behind his back. The black cloth on his face had fallen.
When Qin Wanru came in, she saw the familiar face, but she could not finger out who he was.
“Young Lady, that’s a man from our mansion!” Qing Yue was more sharp-eyed than her. She immediately recognized her and said loudly.
She talked rather loudly, and the untidy voice faded. Everyone looked at Qin Wanru and her servant. Until now, they had not known who the black man was. However, from what was found on this man, they could see that his motive was execrable.
All were women on the mountain. Needless to say, he robbed women for selling them to the dirty place. The womenfolk hated such a person.
If a perfectly good woman was sold to that place, there was no good end to them. The man in black had been beaten by many people, but he just clenched his teeth. Therefore, they could not do anything to him.
“This man is… from our mansion?” Qin Wanru was startled and set her eyes on the man, seemingly examining him.
“It’s the coachman in our mansion. It’s the coachman of the carriage that Madam has been using.” Qing Yue looked at the man in black and said affirmatively.
Although the man in black had been slapped a few times, his face was swollen, Qing Yue still recognized him at a glance.
Madam Di’s subordinates had always been aggressive. If Qin Wanru went out, he would never drive for her. Even sometimes the other coachmen were absent, he was not willing to and alleged that Madam Di might use the carriage later.
Qing Yue took insults from him many times, so she could recognize him well.
The coachman’s brain was in buzz. At this time, he heard the noise of the crowd die away, and raised his head subconsciously. When he was facing Qin Wanru’s dark eyes, he immediately panicked and desperately struggled.
He was knocked out and caught for no reason. When he opened his eyes and found that he did not know them, the coachman secretly sighed with relief because he believed that Madam of Jiangzhou Prefecture had a way to save himself, as long as no one found that he was Madam’s subordinate.
Although he didn’t know why he appeared under the window of a strange woman’s harem, the coachman was so glad that he was not found by Second Miss’s subordinates.
He found that he went to the wrong place, but he considered himself lucky.
He did not expect Qin Wanru to appear in front of him now, so he immediately panicked.
“You’re my mother’s servant?” Qin Wanru stared at his face coldly.
Treated with indifference, the coachman trembled with fear. He hurriedly turned his head away and continued to struggle, as if he did not hear Qin Wanru.
“You’re really my mother’s servant. Why did my mother send you here? Are you looking for me?” Qin Wanru continued.
“Young Madam, you have got the wrong person, I… I neither know what you said nor which lady you are talking about!” The coachman spoke quickly and loudly. He made up his mind that he would not admit.
Qin Wanru sneered secretly.
“Needless to say, this coachman was Madam Di’s trusted subordinate. Qin Yuru had an accident, so Madam Di took desperate measures. Unexpectedly, she conceived such a mischievous plan. She figured out that there would be no servant beside me. It would be easy to drug and take away an 11 years old child.”
She looked around and found that the people present were puzzled. However, no one spoke again, and the scene was strangely quiet.
“Young Madam, I don’t know what you mean. I have never seen you… I just, just see the lady’s beautiful… so…” The coachman turned his eyes and pointed to a lady who was crying and landed on a girl servant.
This lady was just held out of the room.
Of two evils choose the least. The coachman was not afraid to be prisoned. Madam was exceptionally adept in trickery, so she would find a solution to release him.
Hearing that, the lady sobbed again. A 30-year-old madam, holding her gently and patting her, knitted her eyebrows.
An old woman behind her came forward, but she waved to stop her.
However, her subtle movement was captured by Qin Wanru. In Jiangzhou Prefecture, Qin Wanru had never seen such a magnanimous lady. The people around her were so disciplined. She could order someone with just one gesture.
This lady was probably not an ordinary person.
“Qing Yue, slap him in the face!” Qin Wanru stopped being shocked and said indifferently. The more unusual at this time, the more beneficial to her.
Qing Yue’s face had turned purple with anger. She rushed over and gave the coachman a few slaps.
“Young Madam, what does this matter to do with you? You’re meddlesome!” The coachman was beaten to generate a bit of hostility, and he glared at Qin Wanru viciously.
“Lie, you continue to lie. Don’t you think that even if you’re prisoned, my mother will still have a way to release you.” Qin Wanru said coldly as she looked at the coachman without blinking. Seeing the smile in the corner of her mouth, the coachman trembled with fear.
“Is Second Miss not always gentle and affable?”
“Young Madam, I really don’t know you. You frequently mentioned a Madam. What are you up to? It’s your business that you’re on bad terms with her. Don’t get me involved. I have nothing to do with your business!” The coachman was very panic, but he struggled to argue loudly.
With a righteous look, he rebuked Qin Wanru like a gentleman. Had it not been for this scene, someone would really believe him. However, everyone was more confused after hearing his explanation. Many people tend to believe in Qin Wanru.
This person brought these things and sneaked under somebody else’s window. He was not a good person at first sight. It was really ridiculous that he advertised himself as an upright man.
“It’s okay if you don’t admit it. I’ll let my grandmother send for my father to identify.” Qin Wanru talked harshly and her face grew tight. Although she was not tall, she had an indescribable vigor.
The 30-year-old madam looked with wondering eyes at Qin Wanru.
The child was younger than her own daughter, but she could still be calm and self-restraint under such a situation. A lady from a hundred-year-old aristocratic family may not be so graceful and calm at this time.
The coachman was panic and looked sidelong. If the general knew this matter, he must die. Madam warned repeatedly.
He remembered that Madam said the general was busy with First Young Lady’s affairs. For a time, the general had no time. He scolded himself for excessive consideration. He immediately became bold.
“Young Madam, please go and ask anyone you want to. A straight foot is not afraid of a crooked shoe.” The coachman raised the swollen face that was beaten, and he wanted to show no fear. However, at this time, his look was rather doubtful.
“Qing Yue, let my grandmother’s servant ask my father. Tell him that my grandmother is seriously ill, and ask him to come to Jingxin Monastery immediately!” Seeing the coachman still reluctant to admit, Qin Wanru told Qing Yue as her forehead creased for a moment.
“Second Miss, it’s unfilial to lie to the general!” The coachman screamed as soon as he panicked, and his face froze when he finished.
First Young Lady’s affair was very important. But if something happened to the old lady, the general would inevitably come over for the first time. She was old now, so she should not suffer any slights.
He just worried that the general would appear in Jingxin Monastery, but he was off his guard and called out “Second Miss”. He called her Young Madam before.
“Second Miss? You know that I’m Second Miss rather than Young Lady?” Qin Wanru waited for this moment. She changed the subject and said with a stern sight.
Everyone suddenly was enlightened that this man in black was really a bad servant of the General’s Mansion. Someone who knew Qin Wanru, or inferred her identity from her words, immediately figured out the whole thing.
Only Qin Huaiyong, Ningyuan Army General, could be called as a general in Jiangzhou Prefecture.
“Second… Second Miss Qin, I… I have seen you before, so I know… you are the second young lady of Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion.” The coachman was still arguing.
Qin Wanru paid no attention to him, but set her eyes on the window he was caught and looked out of the window. The spotlight shifted with her too.
“Have you got the wrong place? Haven’t you made clear the difference between left and right? So this lady was implicated?”
Qin Wanru’s gaze moved back from her yard to the yard before her eyes.
Coincidentally, the two yards was face-to-face. Both were very simple yards, and the walls were not high. It was impossible for a man to stay, so the wall was not heightened. Standing in the yard, you could see the room in the opposite yard and the window of the opposite room.
The two windows were almost opposite.
“It’s a mistake?” The crowds began to whisper. They suspected the coachman, but they still felt that there was doubt in it.”How could the coachman of the General’s Mansion do this kind of thing — do harm to an unknown lady?” They immediately understood now.
“The general’s wife wants to hurt her daughter? She’s heartless and cruel. Even a vicious tiger will not eat its cubs.” Some people lamented.
“Perhaps you do not know that the general’s wife is not Second Miss’s biological mother.” Some people still didn’t know this.
“This… This is really too shameful. I heard that the general’s wife and First Young Lady had plotted against Second Miss to destroy her reputation. So… she wants to ruin Second Miss again…”
“This woman is really… vicious and horrible. Even if she is not a biological one, how can’t she tolerate a child without a natural mother?”
