Medical Princess - Chapter 703
Shao Wanru stamped the snow off her feet in the corridor and walked slowly into the room.
The furnishings in the room were very old and dirty and placed disorderly. Although they were made of good materials, after being placed here for three years without being maintained, they looked like some second-hand furnishings bought from a flea market.
Wang Yishu struggled to sit up weakly on her bed and glared at Shao Wanru without hiding the obvious hatred in her eyes.
With dark yellow hair and a dark yellow face, she seemed to be withering.
It was really hard to believe that Wang Yishu, who looked like an eighty-year-old woman in low spirits, was in her prime.
“Second Miss Qin… Fifth Miss Shao… Are you satisfied now?” Wang Yishu supported herself with her hand on a cushion, stared at Shao Wanru and said fiercely in a hoarse voice.
“Miss Wang, if you just want to say this, there’s no need to continue this conversation!” Shao Wanru said lightly and turned to leave.
Although Wang Yishu was in a miserable situation now, she felt no pity for her.
When Wang Yishu met her for the first time that day in the imperial palace, Wang Yishu attempted to ruin her reputation by setting her up, which indicated that Wang Yishu was selfish and vicious. In this case, all the hardships Wang Yishu was suffering were the consequences of her own deeds.
Wang Yishu should hate Madam of Duke Xing and herself instead of venting her hatred on others and considering others the cause of her tragedy.
Wang Yishu thought that others deserved to be trampled under her feet as the stepping stones on her way to success and it would be their fault to try to resist it.
Shao Wanru really despised this kind of peremptory selfish thought.
“Wait… wait a minute…” Wang Yishu said.
Shao Wanru stopped in front of the curtain. After getting her footing, she said without looking back, “Miss Wang, if you tried every means to trick me here just in order to vent your anger on me, I advise you to drop this idea. Now only the two of us are here. We clearly know what happened at that time. Now it is Madam of Duke Xing who intends to kill you. It has nothing to do with me!”
She said coldly, and her words certainly meant that Wang Yishu suffered from her own actions and could only blame Madam of Duke Xing for this.
“Nonsense. It’s you who put me in this situation…” Wang Yishu said, reluctant to give in.
“I put you in this situation?” Shao Wanru suddenly turned around to look at Wang Yishu from a distance and said with obvious contempt in her eyes, “Miss Wang, what should I do so that you won’t think so? Should I fall into the trap set by you? Should I allow you to ruin my reputation by framing me in the imperial palace? Or should I be a stepping stone on your way to success? Miss Wang, you are so funny. When will you do this for someone else?”
Shao Wanru raised the corners of her delicate lips and looked straight at Wang Yishu with a trace of piercing coldness in her eyes, which cut through Wang Yishu’s opinionated thought like an arrow. Watched by her, Wang Yishu involuntarily shivering, but then she became furious.
“If it weren’t for you, I would not have fallen into such a miserable situation where I have been half-dead in the past three years. It’s all because of you…”
Wang Yishu shouted in a hoarse voice with a crazy look.
Even a normal person could go crazy after being locked up like this for three years. What was more, Wang Yishu had been lying in bed all the time and couldn’t even get up.
If she were in such a situation, she would rather die.
Shao Wanru kept staring at Wang Yishu calmly and raised the corners of her mouth, and she didn’t begin to talk slowly until she saw that Wang Yishu struggled so hard that she couldn’t even speak, “Miss Wang, do you think I’m the one who put you in this situation? It should be Madam of Duke Xing who sent a doctor to treat you in the past three years!”
“If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have fallen and been lying in bed for three years. I’d rather die now!” Wang Yishu said viciously.
She, who had spent the past three years living a life worse than death, kept thinking that she would rather die.
She saw no hope of recovery in the past three years. Although Duke Xing’s Mansion hired a doctor to treat her specially, she had never gotten any better. She just pretended to fall at that time, but she did not expect that it would ruin her life. Wang Yishu glared at Shao Wanru, shedding tears.
Through her tears, she stared at Shao Wanru with such profound hatred that she almost wanted to pounce on Shao Wanru and bite her.
“If I were you, I would try to figure out why I stayed in bed and couldn’t get up in the past three years. We both know that you just pretended to faint and fall to the ground in the imperial palace at that time. If you were seriously injured, you ought to have felt it after falling down, but in fact, you were fine at that time.”
Compared with Wang Yishu who was furious, Shao Wanru was very calm and looked at Wang Yishu with her bright eyes.
“You…” Wang Yishu couldn’t speak at the moment.
“If you didn’t figure it out in the past three years, now you should realize what has happened!” Shao Wanru said with a sneer, “What did she promise to offer you this time?”
“What… what do you mean?” Wang Yishu swallowed her saliva and said with drifting eyes.
“Miss Wang, do you really not understand what I mean? It has been three years which is even long enough for a fool to figure out what has happened. You just pretended to faint in the imperial palace, but after you came back to Duke Xing’s Mansion, you got sick after being treated. Miss Wang, don’t you know who got the biggest benefit from it?”
Shao Wanru said, looking increasingly calm.
After falling in the imperial palace, Wang Yishu accidentally got hurt and had to stay in bed in the past three years, and she even remained half-dead during this period of time.
It was actually an excuse used to deceive others. But as time went by, even Wang Yishu was convinced that it was true. At this moment, when she heard Shao Wanru’s words, she suddenly opened her eyes wide and reached out to press her chest where she felt a sense of suppression, as if something was about to jump out of it.
“You… you’re talking nonsense!”
“Miss Wang, you should know clearly whether I am talking nonsense or not. Don’t tell me that you tricked me to come to see you just in order to have this conversation. Three years ago, although I reclaimed my identity, I didn’t meet you. After that, I went up the mountain to observe mourning for my parents, while you stayed in bed in the past three years. Now you tried every means to trick me to come to meet you. Do you think you can get any benefit from it?”
Shao Wanru said with increasing calmness and looked at Wang Yishu with indifference that could not be ignored.
“Miss Wang, your business has nothing to do with me. What happened between us three years ago has been bygones. Now that three years have passed, it’s meaningless for you to hold a grudge against me. Didn’t you think about what would happen after I came here? Now that I’m here, what would happen to you? If you die, who is going to take the blame?”
“You… you…” Wang Yishu said and pressed her hands tightly on her chest with a blush. The sense of suppression in the chest seemed to make her out of breath.
She felt like her lungs were about to explode. She struggled in pain, looked at Shao Wanru and stretched out one of her hands, seeming to be asking Shao Wanru for help.
Shao Wanru looked at Wang Yishu with deep eyes. After Yujie lifted the curtain for her, she turned around and left resolutely.
As early as when Wang Yishu asked Doctor Qiu to trick Shao Wanru to come to see her, she was doomed. If Shao Wanru didn’t come to see her, she might have a chance to survive. But Wang Yishu was doomed to be killed on the day Shao Wanru came to see her.
According to the news from Mingqiu Nun, Doctor Qiu had connections with Mingqiu Nun as she expected. They were from the same sect. Although Doctor Qiu was a skilled doctor, he developed unorthodox medical skills and was too anxious to get quick results so that he preferred to cure his patients in a shorter time. His treatment seemed to be very effective, but in fact, it could do harm to his patients’ health easily.
Some patients couldn’t stand his intensive treatment and died an unnatural death. Later, he was kicked out of the sect by Mingqiu Nun’s father, and no one knew where he had gone.
Mingqiu Nun’s father despised this kind of treatment pursuing therapeutic effect regardless of patients’ health, because it was a kind of unorthodox treatment fixing the symptom instead of the root and even the slightest carelessness could lead to patients’ death.
Doctor Qiu created his own acupuncture with which he could not only stimulate patients’ potential vitality but also kill them in an unconventional way. Now Wang Yishu’s feeble life should be prolonged by Doctor Qiu with his acupuncture, so she was so weak that she couldn’t even stand a drastic mood swing and rage.
When Shao Wanru came here, the trap had been set. Of course, there should be a follow-up…
Standing in the corridor, Shao Wanru stopped and looked up at the heavy sky. In the last life, Wen Xichi’s dying young was probably because of Doctor Qiu.
Wen Xichi’s second brother and his cousin sister were determined to kill him. Otherwise, they couldn’t have hired Doctor Qiu to treat him. Moreover, Doctor Qiu and Gu Xishu were related by blood, and it was Gu Xishu who invited Doctor Qiu to the Wen’s Mansion from outside the capital city.
In the last life, Wen Xichi didn’t survive in the end. As his widow, Shao Wanru was driven out of the Wen’s Mansion. Thinking of this, she felt a burning pain in her heart, uncomfortable and depressed, even more depressed than she was in the room just now. She, who almost couldn’t breathe, bit her lip so hard that her lips turned pale.
Hatred? How could she not nurse a hatred for them?
She nursed a bitter hatred for them in both of the two lives. Those people all intended to plot against her and put her in an everlasting hell. They all intended to destroy all of her gentleness and everything she had.
Thinking of what Gu Xishu and Shao Yanru had done to her, she found something became clear at this moment!
In the last life, Wen Xichi’s second brother and cousin sister plotted against him. Nevertheless, if it weren’t for her, he probably would have been able to die a few more years later. Because she married into the Wen’s Mansion as his wife, they couldn’t allow him, such an invalid, to live longer.
In this case, she indeed owed Wen Xichi. If it weren’t for her, although he was sickly, he wouldn’t have died so young!
Those people were so desperate to kill her that although she had been trampled under their feet, they would not let go of her.
If she could exchange her blood, she would rather have never been related to them by blood. Family affection? Had they ever had any family affection for her?
Feeling a burst of anger in her chest, she just looked at the gate of the courtyard coldly, waiting for those people to come over…
“Miss…” Yujie looked at the door and said. With noises from the door, a large group of people rushed into the dilapidated courtyard, headed by Old Madam, who came in aggressively. Seeing Shao Wanru waiting in the corridor with a calm face, Old Madam, who was in front of the others, froze for a moment.
