Medical Princess - Chapter 784
Shao Jing couldn’t send this letter to Shao Yanru himself, but Prince Cheng could. Shao Jing thought that Shao Yanru had always been smart, so she should know what he meant at a glance and wouldn’t act rashly again. He was afraid that if it happened suddenly, his daughter would panic in the imperial palace, which meant that she was doomed to death.
He wanted to make Shao Yanru rest assured. Of course, he would send his daughter into Prince Cheng’s palace. Although Prince Cheng was not a good choice, if he could be the emperor, his daughter would be the empress. This was enough for Shao Jing. As for the matter of their children, he would deal with it later!
As long as she could be the empress, everything could be solved in the future.
It’s pitiful that she could not marry Prince Yue and Prince Zhou. But given their behaviors, compared with them, Prince Cheng tended to be more mature.
Those two were so reckless. How could they be the emperor?
Prince Cheng stood by the window and watched Shao Jing leaving in a hurry. He looked calm but a little cold.
“What do you think?” He looked out of the window and asked. But these words were said to a person behind him.
“Born to be the empress? Can it really be predicted?” Another voice came from behind him. It came from a monk, the abbot Jieyan of the Yuyun Temple.
Although the Yuyun Temple couldn’t compare with the royal temples like Huaguang Temple, it was quite famous in the capital city. The scale of the temple was not small, and some people even came to the Yuyun Temple especially for quiet cultivation.
That Prince Cheng chose to cultivate in Yuyun Temple tended to be more convincing than cultivating in Huaguang Temple.
No one knew that the abbot of Yuyun Temple, Jieyan, had long been on Prince Cheng’s side. Or it could be said that Prince Cheng’s trusted subordinates had entered Yuyun Temple a long time ago and became the abbot of Yuyun Temple step by step. Prince Cheng had been plotting for more than a decade.
“I don’t know if it is true, but I would rather believe it than not!” Prince Cheng said with a sneer.
“Your Highness, it’s good for you to think so. If you must marry a princess, you’d better marry a smart one that you trust rather than one that you do not trust!” Jieyan said after a moment of silence. Prince Cheng had never allowed anyone to mention this. It was rare to have such a chance, so he advised him carefully.
“How trustworthy are Shao Jing’s words?” Prince Cheng paid attention to another aspect, and he didn’t take Jieyan’s words seriously.
“A half!” said Jieyan.
Shao Jing was too sophisticated to believe.
“He should have known about his daughter’s fate early, but he did not tell you. If his daughter had not really had an accident in the palace this time, he would not have mentioned it in front of you. From this, it can be inferred that you are not his only choice!”
Jieyan said implicitly. He had hit the nail on the head!
Prince Cheng nodded, smiled coldly, and muttered to himself, “Born to be the empress? Is there really such a thing?”
“Your Highness, it is hard to say whether there is or not.” Jieyan put his palms together and said in a low voice. Since he was the abbot of Yuyun Temple, he naturally believed in the mystery of Buddha dharma. “But is this First Miss Shao really born to be the empress? How could it be predicted? I can’t figure it out!”
“It doesn’t matter if you can’t figure it out. She is just a woman! When you deliver the letter, add one more sentence so that she would not misunderstand the meaning!” Prince Cheng waved his hand and stopped thinking about Shao Yanru. She was just a woman. He hated women the most…
“Is this a letter sent by Duke Xing?” Chu Liuchen looked at the letter on the desk and asked lightly, raising his beautiful eyes slightly.
“Duke Xing wrote it to the First Miss Shao and it would be sent to the Phoenix Palace.” Xiao Xuanzi reported that the letter was seized halfway, and the little eunuch who delivered the letter was still unconscious in the corner.
In fact, there were not many important secret matters in the letter. He just reminded Shao Yanru to be careful and not to act rashly. He comforted her that he would send her out of the palace, and her marriage would not be influenced. The words were what an ordinary father worried about his daughter would say to his daughter.
The problem was not what was in this letter but this letter itself.
“Shao Jing can’t have access to the Phoenix Palace of the Empress!” Chu Liuchen said lazily. He leaned against a couch and wore a loose cyan robe, which made him look like a sage. If others saw him at first glance, they would think that he was a sage coming out of a painting.
He had the elegant, thin, and unrestrained style unique to the Ancient Saints.
Only when he rolled his eyes slightly, there was a strange concern in his eyes, which made him a bit colder than the childe.
“Master, who do you think it is?” Xiao Xuanzi asked cautiously.
“Prince Cheng!” Chu Liuchen curled his lips and said. In fact, he was concerned about Prince Cheng most. Prince Cheng, who had been hiding in the dark, was the biggest opponent to him. Compared with Chu Liuyue and Chu Liuzhou, Prince Cheng was calmer, but now he had intervened in Shao Yanru’s business.
This was really an accident!
With Prince Cheng’s temperament, how could he care about Shao Yanru? He knew a secret of Prince Cheng. He had never doubted whether there was something going on between him and Shao Yanru. In this case, he and Shao Yanru were totally unrelated. It was really suspicious for them to be related to each other.
“Master, I think that Duke Xing did something inside.” Xiao Xuanzi thought for a moment and said.
Chu Liuchen narrowed his eyes with a trace of sly coldness flashing in his eyes and a cold smile on his lips. Duke Xing was really on Prince Cheng’s side.
In the past, he had only suspected it, but now he was basically sure about that. The only thing he was not sure of was Prince Cheng’s character since he should not have intervened at this time. Even if this person was Shao Jing’s daughter, so what? Prince Cheng would never be worried about a woman.
Why did he do this then?
Prince Cheng had people in the palace, and they were well hidden. It was not worthy for him to take action to seize someone from the Empress’ palace. Then what was the reason for him to take action? How much benefit could this matter bring him? How much benefit could he gain from it?
“Master, would Prince Cheng also like… First Miss Shao?” Xiao Xuanzi asked hesitantly.
This conclusion was easily drawn from this thing. If Prince Cheng didn’t like the First Miss Shao, how could he take action in the Empress’ palace? If he was not careful, he would easily get into trouble.
In fact, Xiao Xuanzi also knew that it was almost impossible, but he was convinced by the First Miss Shao. She could hook up with two princes and make Prince Yue and Prince Zhou fight for her. How could the First Miss Shao be simple? It seemed not impossible for her to hook up with Prince Cheng, who didn’t like women at this time!
“No!” Chu Liuchen shook his head and denied it. There was a hint of sarcasm on his pale lips. Everyone only said that Prince Cheng was devoted to Buddha and there was no wife or concubine in Prince Cheng’s Mansion. The palace maids sent to his room were also left aside. He should really be devoted to Buddha and live a simple life.
However, they didn’t know that his uncle really didn’t like women but loved young men.
Without concubines in his mansion, it was more convenient for him to do whatever he wanted in private.
If Shao Yanru’s identity as a woman could not attract Prince Cheng’s attention, then what her other identity could make Prince Cheng care about?
Suddenly he thought of what Shao Wanru had told him before. A sharp cold light flashed in his eyes. Was it for the so-called fate?
Being born to be the empress was really a good thing, which made Prince Cheng, who didn’t like women, wanted her and was even willing to reach out to the Phoenix Palace regardless of danger.
“Send the letter to the Empress!” Chu Liuchen said with implicit meanings.
“But this letter… has been opened!” Xiao Xuanzi looked at the widely opened letter. If this opened letter was sent to the empress, it would be discovered.
“So what? There are too many people in the palace with ulterior motives. Even if I want to, I can’t do anything with my ill body!” Chu Liuchen waved his hand lazily and said.
He wanted the Empress to suspect it. The more suspicious she was, the better it was. There would always be someone who took the responsibility?
“Yes, I will put the letter back on the little eunuch’s body later!” Xiao Xuanzi didn’t understand at first, but when he saw the smile on his master’s face, he immediately understood.
He picked up the letter and was about to leave. But he suddenly stopped and looked at Chu Liuchen hesitantly. “Master… what if… what if First Miss Shao was really born to the empress?”
If Shao Yanru was really born to be the empress, it meant that the one marrying her would be the emperor. Xiao Xuanzi’s words were very straightforward. If they knew that Shao Yanru had the fate, they would definitely try their best to marry her, so that one of them could become the emperor and enjoy the world.
“Though she was really born to be the empress, so what? Do I have to live with her hand in hand to see the glory of this life?” Chu Liuchen said with a faint smile.
Seeing his smiling face, Xiao Xuanzi trembled in his heart. He was really talkative. He knew that his master didn’t care about these things, but he still asked him. Wasn’t he looking for trouble?
“If so, I would rather die of illness early! Xiao Xuanzi, don’t you have anything to do recently?” As expected, the next moment, he heard Chu Liuchen’s elegant voice. He asked with a smile.
“No, I have something to do. I really have something to do. I’m so busy. Master, I’ll go first!” Xiao Xuanzi turned around in a hurry and was about to slip away.
“Do what you need to do first. After that, receive ten stickbeats so that you would not have nothing to do all day and say something ridiculous!” A lazy voice came from behind. Under his long eyelashes was a cold and gloomy face. “My wife doesn’t need to be born as the empress. She should be the empress with me!”
He did not need to know whether she was born to be the empress or not, nor did he need to use her fate to support his identity. As long as she was by his side, he would definitely take her straight to the top. As for the so-called fate, he did not need to care about it!
