Medical Princess - Chapter 692
The warmth in her hands made Shao Wanru return to herself from the bloody scene. She took a deep breath and suppressed the hatred rolling in her eyes.
Since her hatred was too profound to dissolve, she decided to just take her revenge. She, returning from the hell, had made up her mind to fight desperately with Duke Xing’s Mansion in this life!
“I’m fine!” She said, while struggling to get her hands out of Chu Liuchen’s grip. However, he grasped her hands and showed no sign of loosening his grip.
She raised her eyes to look at Chu Liuchen, only to find that he looked up at her with his explorative eyes. She somehow felt afraid that her secret would be found out.
“Tell me, what happened to you just now?” Chu Liuchen, who did not intend to let it go so easily, asked.
“I… suddenly realized… it must be Duke Xing’s Mansion’s another plot against me. They intend to kill Wang Yishu and then shift the blame onto me. When I met Doctor Qiu, he repeatedly suggested me to visit Wang Yishu and said that she, who was about to die, spoke from her heart!”
Shao Wanru pulled herself together and analyzed in an organized way.
“Well, let her die for a proper reason!” Chu Liuchen said indifferently.
Shao Wanru felt her heart skipped a beat and involuntarily turned her head away. Every time she looked into Chu Liuchen’s eyes, she felt a little uneasy.
His beautiful eyes, which seemed to be filled with thousands of stars shining in the sky, dazzled her. But sometimes they seemed to be filled with tons of tenderness, which somehow made her face blush and her heart beat faster.
“What do you mean by letting her die for a proper reason?”
“Didn’t you say that they intended to kill her during your visit and then shift the blame onto you? You can go there with Qing’er, who can handle it!” Chu Liuchen said with a wicked smile, “Of course, there is another better solution. I can help you get rid of her directly!”
“Let Qing’er handle it. You have no valid reason to do that!” Shao Wanru shook her head and turned down the second very direct proposal he put forward.
Although she now bore the name of saving Chu Liuchen, she didn’t want him to get involved in her business too often.
“Do you mean that you haven’t been my princess yet?” Chu Liuchen squinted at her and said disapprovingly.
With her heart skipping a beat, Shao Wanru hurriedly lowered her head and said, “Your Highness, you must be joking!”
“I’m not joking. Since you’re bound to marry me and become my wife, it makes no difference to be my princess earlier or later!” Chu Liuchen said indifferently.
“Your Highness, don’t act rashly!” Shao Wanru was shocked, grabbed Chu Liuchen’s hand and said anxiously.
He was Prince Chen who dared to do anything. Shao Wanru did not dare to let him help her. She believed that she was capable of handling the affairs in the backyard of Duke Xing’s Mansion. Since it was a plot, she could handle it in secret.
With the help of those sent by Chu Liuchen, she could actually do a better job!
“You really don’t want my help?” Chu Liuchen asked with a smile in a lazy voice.
“No!” Shao Wanru thought for a while and said. She somehow thought of a series of strange scenes. Was it the imperial palace with blood flowing like stream? Plenty of women’s corpses were piled up on the steps leading to the palace…
“Well, forget it. I can wait for you to marry me. You are old enough for marriage. Since you have been engaged to me, you should marry me as soon as possible. I am also old enough for marriage!” Chu Liuchen squinted and said with a smile, seeming to be in a good mood and quite enjoyed being held by Shao Wanru.
Shao Wanru blushed and hurriedly shook Chu Liuchen’s hands off, as if his hands were a piece of burning iron. Unfortunately, Chu Liuchen even acted faster than she did. He held her hand again and said, “What’s wrong? You clung to me when in need of my help, and tossed me aside when not in need of my help. Zhuozhuo, it’s not a good habit!”
As saying that, he winked at Shao Wanru playfully, looking like a gentle, innocent and bright young man.
“Your Highness, since you are a human being, how can I treat you like that!” With a blush, Shao Wanru said, while trying hard to withdraw her hands.
He seemed to indicate that she had done something evil like abandoning her husband.
Thinking of this, Shao Wanru blushed even more. She thought that she must have gone crazy so that such a crazy thought came into her mind after she heard Chu Liuchen’s words.
“Well, that is to say, you won’t abandon me, right?” Chu Liuchen, who was satisfied, said. Seeing her red face, he loosened his grip of her delicate little hands at the right time, leaned back with pleasure and looked at Shao Wanru with a smile, but he didn’t say a word.
After realizing his feelings for her, Chu Liuchen thought that he could act faster!
He had always been a person who took action as soon as he aimed at the target!
Of course, he couldn’t scare her. After all, their relationship began with Shao Wanru’s promise to be his shield!
Well, he wanted her to be his shield for the rest of her life. Moreover, he would not allow his shield to be eliminated.
Since she had promised to be his shield, she should keep her promise for the rest of her life. It was the agreement between the two of them, wasn’t it?
Chu Liuchen felt justified and contented. Looking at Shao Wanru’s face, which had returned to red, he felt increasingly complacent. When he saw her pale face and lips just now, he was very dissatisfied.
Since he was displeased, he certainly would not allow those displeasing him to feel pleased!
He knocked twice on the table with his fingers and said, “Shao Yanru is close to both Chu Liuzhou and Chu Liuyue. It must be the plot of either of them. They consider me an obstacle!”
Shao Wanru was shocked, raised her head hurriedly and asked, “What do you mean, Your Highness?” She suddenly realized that the fight for the throne had begun long before.
“I didn’t care about it at first… Anyway, as an invalid, I have no expectation of my future!” Chu Liuchen said casually.
Shao Wanru frowned with disapproval. In fact, when she first saw Chu Liuchen, she had such an intuition that Prince Chen didn’t care much about his life and took the medicine at will.
At this moment, when she heard him say this personally, she actually felt her heart tremble. The fear made her feel extremely uncomfortable and try hard to prevent him from saying that.
Shao Wanru suppressed the inexplicable fear in her heart and asked, “Your Highness, your illness is curable. Don’t you get much better now?”
“I’m fine now! I certainly should live well, because I can’t let you be a widow before marrying me!” Chu Liuchen reached out to gently press her eyebrows and said softly with a smile, “Keeping frowning since an early age will make you show your age early!”
“Your Highness!” Shao Wanru reached out to push him away and said reproachfully.
“I mean it. I’ve told my grandma that I’m going to marry you. If I die at this time, considering my grandma’s character, she will definitely make you live in widowhood for me!” Chu Liuchen withdrew his hands with a smile and said complacently.
Shao Wanru looked at him speechlessly, wondering what made him talked about his death so complacently. At the moment, he didn’t look like the cunning Prince Chen he had always been at all.
“Your Highness, do you mean that you will be fine?” She, who grasped the other meaning of his words, rolled her watery eyes and asked.
“Of course I will be fine. Since they have their plots, so do I. Let’s see who can be the winner!” Chu Liuchen said indifferently with composure in his eyes, as if he were not talking about something monstrous like striving for the throne.
Shao Wanru felt her heart beat faster. It was the first time that she had clearly heard Chu Liuchen talk about his wild ambition.
She didn’t know why Chu Liuchen bestirred himself to fight for the throne and trample everyone under his feet in the last life. As the nephew of the emperor, he managed to defeat the emperor’s sons and win the throne. It must be a piece of sanguinary and complicated history.
She bit her lip and suppressed the fear in her heart, thinking what made Chu Liuchen able to defeat the emperor’s sons as the emperor’s nephew.
“Well, are you interested in enjoying the great view of the country with me in the future?” Chu Liuchen asked with a smile. Under the light, his eyes looked not only as gentle as jade, but also seemed to be affectionate.
“Your Highness, if you fail…” Shao Wanru’s voice sounded a little ethereal.
“Rest assured. Even if I fail, I will definitely protect you, my shield! If anyone dares to hurt you, I will make him pay with his blood!”
Chu Liuchen laughed in a low voice and said casually, “Anyway you are my shield. I will never abandon my shield! After all, it’s you who managed to cling to me as my shield!”
His words were extremely ambiguous. Although Shao Wanru was worried, she involuntarily felt a little ashamed and annoyed at this time. She gritted her teeth and said, “Thank you for your kindness!”
“Don’t mention it. You don’t have to thank me for that!” Chu Liuchen said lazily. Then he stood up, walked to the window on the other side, looked out of the window, and said with a smile, “It’s really snowing. Zhuozhuo, have you ever seen such a heavy snow in Jiangzhou?”
Shao Wanru got up speechlessly and walked to the window to have a look. As expected, there was a heavy snow outside, which was very rare even in the capital city. Every snowflake was very large and fell from the sky, looking very beautiful!
“Your Highness, I have lived in the capital city for three years!” Shao Wanru bit her lip and reminded him reluctantly. Such a heavy snow was rare, but she, who had lived in the capital city for three years, had seen a few times. She was not as surprised as she had been when she just moved to the capital city at the sight of this!
“The native place of doctor surnamed Qiu has been changed again. He is not from Jiangzhou now. Someone must have made another move.” Chu Liuchen looked out of the window with a smile and said something completely irrelevant to what he had just said.
He changed the subject so swiftly that Shao Wanru was stunned for a moment and then turned her head quickly with a trace of impressive coldness in her watery eyes.
“Your Highness, do you mean that they are going to deal with me?”
