Medical Princess - Chapter 83
The wedding bedroom was located in the yard where Shui Ruolan lived before.
This yard, alongside with Madam Di’s yard were located in both sides of the Old Grandma’s.
The largest main yard in the backyard of General’s Mansion belonged to Madam Di, and it could be regarded as the one dominated the center while Old Grandma’s yard was built on the left, and the one where Shui Ruolan lived was further left than Old Grandma’s yard.
It was a little bit isolated already, but Shui Ruolan would like to live here although it was too remote and too tranquil, Shui Ruolan liked it very much.
Qin Wanru was familiar with Shui Ruolan’s yard because her own yard was behind it and she was close to Shui Ruolan, visiting her from time to time.
Passing through the yard of Qin Wanru, it would be closer to walk into Shui Ruolan’ yard through the back door, in this case, the back door was rarely closed only for Qin Wanru’s convenience in visiting.
Taking Chu Liuchen with her, Qin Wanru came to the back door after they walked from the far side and took many unnecessary steps. Qing Yue pushed the door gently, and it was open.
Therefore, they went into the yard through the back door.
Few people were visiting Shui Ruolan’s yard and some new servants participated into the group this time, and some else were helping for this wedding. All of them were busy at the front, and none of them noticed that there were more visitors at the back of the wedding room.
Qin Wanru could never imagine that she would break the rules and do something like standing and watching behind the window of the wedding bedroom.
She was short, so that she couldn’t see clearly, and Qing Yue lifted her a little bit to help her climb on the window sill.
Chu Liuchen made it easier to climb to the window sill than her and now he was watching in good mood.
When Qin Wanru reached to the window sill, she took a glimpse into the room and her facial expression became weird because she really didn’t understand what to look.
It was quiet inside the wedding bedroom, and Shui Ruolan was sitting on the large and red wedding bed with her red cover removed from her head.
There were few people in the wedding bedroom, only two girl servants standing there to serve her and they were both in red, and… there was nothing? This really had nothing to peek!
They were at the back window, with a curtain hanging on it, and their faces were close to the curtain. If the people inside did not notice them, they would not find out that there were someone behind the back window.
They stayed there for a while and people inside were standing still. Shui Ruolan lowered her head in silence and her girl servants didn’t make any movements, so Qin Wanru didn’t thought this was fun for watching at all.
She pulled Chu Liuchen’s sleeves slightly, but he neglected her, so she tried harder but Qing Yue failed to support her and started trembling. Qin Wanru managed to cling to the window sill, and she turned around to indicate her willingness for putting her down to the ground as she didn’t want to watch.
Qing Yue understood and she slowly put her down by holding her waist.
“General.” Suddenly, a girl servant’s voice delivered into their ears which made Qin Wanru fell into panic and she could barely support herself but dropped onto the ground, so she reached out her hand desperately to hold something for keeping herself in balance.
How could her father be here at this moment? Shouldn’t he stay by the side of the guests on the wedding feast?
Because she was in panic, she didn’t pay attention to the thing that she clung to, she was just clinging to it in her full strength.
Chu Liuchen was relishing the scene with high interest, and suddenly, he felt someone pulled his cloth, so he fell over by the dragging, and it was too late for Xiao Xuanzi to hold him, so they both fell and landed in a heap.
“Who?” Qin Huaiyong asked loudly and angrily, and then they both heard his heavy steps storming towards the back window.
Qin Wanru pulled up Chu Liuchen in a hurry and she trotted to the empty fishbowl and jumped into it. Qing Yue and Xiao Xuanzi followed her and did the same, they both jumped into another one.
Shui Ruolan’s two large fishbowls were gifts from Qin Wanru, and there was a story in it.
There was a time when Qin Wanru went outside and saw lotuses were raised in the giant fishbowl, and fishes were swimming beneath the lotuses. This beautiful and elegant scene attracted Qin Wanru, so she prepared to raise fish like this in the next spring. She begged Old Grandma to buy four large vats as fishbowls and she gave two of them to Shui Ruolan, keeping the other two in her own yard.
However, it was not the best season for raising lotus, so there were both empty.
The vat was large enough to keep two people.
With her hands still clinging to Chu Liuchen’s sleeves, she leaned her head to the edge of the fishbowl and listened to the outside nervously.
The window was opened and there were steps again, it was Shui Ruolan’s gentle voice,” cousin, what’s wrong?”
“Nothing, maybe I misheard!” Qin Huaiyong looked at the empty backyard and frowned. Was he mishearing just now?
In fact, Shui Ruolan followed him because she heard something as well. She heard his words and checked outside the window, it was quiet and empty, so she maybe misheard it!
Qin Huaiyong pulled down the curtain calmly, “cousin, you should eat lunch right now. I’ll ask people in kitchen to prepare you something plain, similar to what you usually have.”
“Thanks, cousin!” Shui Ruolan blushed. From now on, he was not her cousin but her husband!
Qin Huaiyong enjoyed her blushing face, because it made him moved. Holding her hand, he took her to sit in front of the bed, “I need to treat other guests later, so I don’t have time to accompany you. If you were tired, you could take a rest.”
“I… I know!” Shui Ruolan lowered her head, and her face was as red as blood. Although she married once, the one she was marrying to was different. It was Qin Huaiyong, who grew up with her together, and childhood memories which only shared between them were flooding back in her mind, among them, some she felt familiar, while some were strange.
No matter the memory was familiar or strange, she was shy to all of them.
“Ruolan, since then, I have to bother you with the business in the backyard, don’t blame me!” Qin Huaiyong held her hands and sighed.
“Cousin, I know. I’ll do my best to help you manage all the businesses in the backyard.” Shui Ruolan answered, “I’ll take care of Mother and Wanru!”
Nanny Duan told everything happened earlier to Shui Ruolan and reported all the vicious schemes of Madam Di. Hence, she knew Qin Huaiyong grounded madam Di, and that was why she didn’t appear today.
“Mother was not young anymore, and Wanru… was still young so that Madam Di would raise her!” Qin Huaiyong said. He wanted to clarify somethings now in case there were troublesome accidents in the future, “Yuru was born by Madam Di, and it’s grateful that Duke-Yong married their daughter to me when I was beneath them… ”
Because of these, even it was him, he had to bear misgivings, and it concerned about official issues in his career which made Qin Huaiyong felt inconvenient to tell Shui Ruolan in detail. Therefore, he mumbled his words and took Madam Di’s marrying issue in the past as an excuse. Qin Huaiyong felt shameful when he was talking, and he lowered his head.
He was selfish too.
“Cousin, stop, I understand!” Shui Ruolan said mildly. She was quiet and elegant and didn’t feel wronged at all, ” since now I married you, I’ll listen to you in everything. I’ll be respectful to mother and take care of Wanru. I’ll listen to your words outside, and Madam Di should stay because of Yuru.”
Shui Ruolan’s words were reasonable, and she was a woman of sense, Qin Huaiyong felt relieved. He held Shui Ruolan in his arms and didn’t know what to say.
He had misgivings, and he was selfish. He found it embarrassed to talk about something, so he was grateful that Shui Ruolan was so considerate and didn’t further her questions aggressively.
Initially, he was affectionate to Shui Ruolan, and this time, he was marrying someone so considerate and as beautiful as her. Qin Huaiyong, who was always stern, showed a smile since he was less worried about the sound he just heard from the back window.
Qin Huaiyong whispered with Shui Ruolan, and since they were talking about some casual topics now, they spoke gently which made Qin Wanru hear unclearly in the big vat.
She approached her head to the vat and wanted to hear more. But suddenly, her body was dragged back and bumped into Chu Liuchen. Qin Wanru felt stunned, she turned around in a hurry, wiping her cherry lips to the handsome face of Chu Liuchen.
They both got stunned.
Qin Wanru turned back in a hurry, and her little face went blushed immediately. She pinched Chu Liuchen unconsciously.
“Ah! Why did you pinch me!” Chu Liuchen whispered unhappily. He held Qin Wanru’s little hands tightly.
His grasp was so powerful that Qin Wanru felt painful, and she almost cried. She turned to look at him angrily and reached to hold Chu Liuchen’s the other big hand with her little hand.
He stared at Qin Wanru who looked nervous, and her beautiful moist eyes were flowing. He got astonished and he understood, so he loosed his hand a little bit, but he was still holding her hands and pulling her to his side. He approached his head to her, “did your father like this bride earlier?”
“What?” Since the pain was still tinging Qin Wanru hands, and she became bolder because of this, so she answered impatiently.
“I’m only asking because I found it weird!” Chu Liuchen leaned his head and his voice became much lower. Qin Wanru felt uncomfortable because his beautiful and flawless face was too close to hers, she took another her hand to push his pale but handsome face away slightly, indicating him to stay away a little bit from her.
Chu Liuchen ignored her and reached out his hand to catch hers. Now both of her hands were in his big hand. Although Qin Wanru struggled for a while, she couldn’t struggle off his grasp and she dared not to move violently anymore.
“Why it’s weird?” Qin Wanru pouted her mouth and said.
“I only felt it bizarre, it shouldn’t be like this!” With his heading leaning to Qin Wanru, he looked at Qin Wanru’s pinky little face and thought she was really in good condition now. Her eyes were so dark as it were moist and flickering, and how could her lips be so bright-colored, which was different from her pale face.
He liked this color on her lips and hoped his lips could be as bright as hers!
Long and curl eyelashes were like brushes circling her black eyes, and when he reached out his hand and touched her eyes, he could feel the soft eyelashes wiping his palms. This girl’s eyelashes were genuinely long.
He lifted his hand accidentally and touched Qin Wanru’s beautiful hair, which felt so comfortable that Chu Liuchen’s eyes were almost narrowed together. It felt just like the cat he raised, so comfy!
And her appearance resembled his xenogenic cat, and they were both beautiful!
“What’re you doing!” Qin Wanru didn’t know why he covered his eyes and touched her hair, so she struggled her hands and goggled her moist eyes and stared at Chu Liuchen to show her anger.
However, her beautiful eyes didn’t show any anger and couldn’t intimidate him at all. Chu Liuchen thought her eyes were the same to the eyes of the cat he raised, they were both angry, but had nothing to do with him!
It was adorable! He liked it!
