Medical Princess - Chapter 907
As soon as Shao Wanru and Chu Liuchen went back to their mansion, the latter was called to the outer court. Shao Wanru understood that he had to deal with something, so she returned to the main courtyard of the inner court alone.
Although there was an outer court and an inner court with their respective servants, the two courts meant the same for Shao Wanru and Chu Liuchen as they were the only masters in Prince Chen’s Mansion.
After returning to her room, Shao Wanru summoned Qing’er and instructed her to carry out some orders.
Then Qu Le left for Qin’s Mansion. She went to deliver some gifts there but her main purpose was to meet Qing Xue who was staying in Qin’s Mansion.
When Chu Liuchen finished his work, it was time for lunch. He sent Xiao Xuanzi to tell Shao Wanru that he was still occupied with some jobs so he wouldn’t come. He asked Shao Wanru to eat lunch by herself first.
Qing’er was very efficient and she brought the news back in the afternoon of the same day, which was partly due to Shao Wanru’s ongoing secret plan. The other factor was Chu Liuchen’s good secret guards. With two more secret guards added, Qing’er had four in total now, which helped her get the information even faster.
Qu Le returned a little later but she was back with all the information her master needed. Qing Xue in Qin’s Mansion had been secretly collecting the information about Madam Di and Qin Yuru, waiting for Shao Wanru to come and ask for it.
Madam Di was of little use now. She had been recuperating in the inner court. She had always been in weak health—she was too weak to get out of bed and to meet guests. Shui Ruolan was in charge of all the domestic affairs in Qin’s Mansion.
In the past three years, Shui Ruolan had gradually established a firm foothold in Qin’s Mansion. No one dared to gossip about her charge of the affairs of Ningyuan Army General’s Mansion, though she was just a secondary legal wife.
Anyone smart could tell that Old Madam Qin valued Shui Ruolan and Qin Huaiyong also doted on her wholeheartedly, for she had given birth to Qin Huaiyong’s only son! Even if there were some other concubines in the mansion, none of them could step on her. As for Madam Di, she had long been out of the game. If it hadn’t been for Duke Yong’s Mansion, she, the legal wife of Qin Huaiyong, might have died of illness early.
Even though Madam Di was still alive now, few people took her seriously. In addition, it was said that Qin Yuru, the First Miss of Qin’s Mansion who married into Duke Yong’s Mansion, also lived a terrible life. She had an abortion a few days ago.
It seemed that it made such a big scene in Duke Yong’s Mansion that even Madam Di was alarmed. Later, Qin Yuru even went back to Qin’s Mansion and visited Madam Di. As for what the two talked about, Qing Xue didn’t know.
After hearing the two girls’ reports, Shao Wanru pondered for a while. She had no sympathy for Qin Yuru, thinking that Qin Yuru just got what she sowed. “Whom else could she blame on? What I did is to help her see the real world.” In a rebirth life, Shao Wanru would only show kindness to people who were also kind to her!
Then she instructed Qing’er to carry out another order. She had instructed Madame Dong before, and all she had to do was to wait and see what would happen next…
“Madam, Prince Yan has come back, but he went straight to West Courtyard!” Mei Xue came in and said hurriedly.
In the West Courtyard lived a prostitute, who, however, played music for male guests rather than had sex with them in exchange for money in a brothel. Di Yan met her a few days ago and brought her back. The woman was extremely charming, and Qin Yuru had seen her the day she entered the mansion. But she didn’t take Qin Yuru seriously either.
“Madam, what should we do? Should we tell Old Madam?” Meiyan asked.
They entered Duke Yong’s Mansion with Qin Yuru, living a hard life in Duke Yong’s Mansion too.
“What will it help to tell her?” Qin Yuru cried in a sharp voice. She was no longer the same as she had been three years ago, before which she lived as a daughter of the Qin family.
Although she had managed to marry into Duke Yong’s Mansion, only Old Madam took her seriously. But she always stood on Di Yan’s side in the dispute between Qin Yuru and Di Yan.
Every time Qin Yuru complained about it, Old Madam would repeatedly hint her that if Di Yan hadn’t married her, she would have already died. So Di Yan was her savior and she had to concede everything.
Qin Yuru had been very impatient when Old Madam said it the first time, but Old Madam mentioned it again and again, which made Qin Yuru even more annoyed.
It was her inexcusable scar, which was the biggest stain in her life. She had wanted to hide it in her heart, however, it was mentioned from time to time. It felt like her scars kept being poked, and her feeling was more than just anger!
She hated everything!
She touched her shriveled belly with hatred in her eyes. That was not the first child she aborted. If it hadn’t been for Di Yan, she couldn’t have lost her children!
She married into Duke Yong’s Mansion three years ago, from which she had suffered a lot of health problems. It was owed to Di Yan, who kept bringing various women back home. He made things difficult for her, embarrassed her, and even made her miscarry.
Thinking of what the doctor had said before, she gnashed her teeth in hatred. If she went on miscarrying babies, she would probably become infertile!
“If I will have no children, and neither will Di Yan!”
“Does that pregnant Concubine Tao know about this?” Qin Yuru asked coldly. Her thin face didn’t look like that of a young wife but like that of an old woman in deep depression all year round. There was no passion but hatred in her eyes. Her expression looked colder when she was in places without the sunshine.
Concubine Tao had been the most favored concubine, and now she could get whatever she wanted in the mansion, just because she was pregnant!
“Yes, she does. I have secretly informed her servant girl!” Mei Xue said in a low voice.
“It’s not enough. We have to exaggerate its severity!” Qin Yuru said in a cold voice, looking like a ferocious devil. Now she couldn’t get a better life, so she wouldn’t let others live a good one, especially Di Yan, who had ruined her whole life.
If Di Yan had not seduced her earlier, she would have kept her reputation and have become the wife of her favorite man Qi Tianyu. Di Yan should be to blame for all her loss.
Di Yan was still the heir of Duke Yong’s Mansion, but she had declined to such an extent. The hatred in Qin Yuru’s heart made her want to overturn the entire Duke Yong’s Mansion. “They don’t deserve a good life!”
“How can I just let them be happy after they have hurt me?”
“Yes, I’ll go and do what you say in a minute!” Mei Xue hurriedly lowered her head and did not dare to stay any longer. She turned around to the inner room and took something out in a hurry.
They were all prepared by her master a long time ago.
“Madam, the doctor has come!” A servant girl reported at the door.
Qin Yuru nodded, and Meiyan hurriedly went to the door and led the doctor in. He was not the doctor who served Duke Yong’s Mansion, but one that Qin Yuru specially found from outside.
He was in his fifties or sixties, with a strength of character.
The doctor walked into the room and saw that the curtain inside was down, so he bowed to the curtain and then heard a slow voice, “Don’t stand on ceremony, Doctor. Please examine me and tell me anything if there is something wrong with my body!”
“Don’t worry, Madam. I will find it out!” The doctor promised.
Qin Yuru nodded and slowly stretched out one of her arms from the edge of the curtain. And Meiyan put her stretched hand on the medicine pillow put aside.
Qin Yuru didn’t believe the exclusive doctor of Duke Yong’s Mansion and she wanted to know the true situation about her health. After the last miscarriage, she felt that she was not in a good condition anymore. At that time, the doctor of Duke Yong’s Mansion looked very hesitant. She asked him, but in the end, he didn’t give her a certain answer due to Old Madam and Countess Yong’s presence.
The doctor of Duke Yong’s Mansion said she would lose the ability to carry a baby if she suffered the same again and something like that… Thinking of this, Qin Yuru reached out to touch her belly, with a trace of crazy hatred flashing in her eyes.
She hated Duke Yong’s Mansion and its masters including Di Yan, Countess Yong, and Old Madam!
“It was they who destroyed me!”
If Di Yan hadn’t quarreled with her, and if he hadn’t pushed her and she hadn’t fallen to the ground, the child in her uterus would have been fine. “Everything I suffered was all because of them!”
The doctor put a silk handkerchief to cover her hand and wrist and then felt her pulses. Then he frowned.
“Doctor, how is my health?” Qin Yuru asked coldly, sitting on the bed.
“Madam… you seem to be in poor health, and…” The doctor paused, looking hesitant.
Meiyan waved her hand, and all the other servant girls and old maids left the room.
“Doctor, now there are only me and my principal maid. Please tell me!” Although Qin Yuru was not hopeful, she was still very nervous.
“Madam, your body has been tortured many times. I’m afraid it’s very difficult for you to get pregnant again. What’s more… Have you ever taken any harmful medicine before?” The doctor said frankly.
“What do you mean by saying harmful medicine?” Qin Yuru trembled all over, staring at the doctor through the gauze curtain.
“It’s the medicine that can help you regain a good shape of your body, but it will harm your health, especially when you are in such a condition. Taking that medicine will make you…” The doctor paused again, seeming to be choosing his words.
“Doctor, please tell me!” Qin Yuru grabbed the corner of the quilt tightly with the other hand.
“Make you never have children!”
The doctor’s voice was not loud, but his words exploded in Qin Yuru’s ears. “They even want me to have no children forever!”
Creepy and crazy cackling came out of her throat without her control.
“Madam! Madam, don’t be sad. Don’t worry. It is not necessarily the case!” Meiyan was so anxious that she hastened to comfort Qin Yuru inside the curtain.

The mad laughter stopped, and then Qin Yuru slowly calmed down.
After a long while, she asked, “How long have I taken it?”
“I think it’s since the past few days. It might be the medicine you took for the miscarriage, or it was just caused by the incompatibility between two herbals,” the doctor said carefully. It was difficult to deal with the private affairs of such a big family. He regretted coming here, where he had to tell the truth, for a large sum of money.
“Madam, if you doubt it, you can see another doctor. I am too old and I might make a mistake!” the doctor stood up and said in a panic. At this time, he was eager to get rid of it. No one was willing to get involved in such kind of thing. He even felt that he shouldn’t ask for the pay.
“Doctor, wait a minute. I need your help with one more thing!” Qin Yuru said, “Meiyan, bring the medicine I took before and show it to the doctor!”
