Medical Princess - Chapter 91
Chapter 91 Is Today’s Bird’s Nest New?
Her question made Nanny Zhou trembled a little bit as she understood her intention, but she dared not to answer.
“What? Can’t I say it? Is he hanging around at that evil woman’s place all day? So shameless! He even dared to kiss and cuddle with that widow!” She gritted her teeth so hard that she nearly bit her flesh. She stared at Nanny Zhou with her insidious look as if she were Shui Ruolan.
“Madam… Madam, it’s only temporary. When we go to the capital city, we can ask our mansion to put more pressure on him and give him more beauties. By then, he will no longer feel his marriage interesting, and he wouldn’t choose the opposite stance by then. Anyway, Young Lady was general’s only daughter.”
Nanny Zhou comforted Madam Di in a hurry and said.
“Fine, I’ll tolerate it! I won’t believe when we are in the capital city, Shui Ruolan can still have a good life, and Qin Huaiyong can lock me forever!”
The poisonous liquid was about to leak from Madam Di’s eyes. When they went back to the capital city, she had numerous tricks in aid of Duke Yong mansion.
“Don’t worry, Madam. Only in days, the news will come. There was news went to the servant by the elder Madam’s side. “Nanny Zhou comforted her because she was worried that Madam Di couldn’t bear this. Now they were in Jiangzhou, and if anything happened, people in the capital city couldn’t take care of her.
At least Madam was still her sense, so she got relieved.
“Madam, do you need to send some healthy tonic up to the mountain to Old Grandma? The other side kept sending?” Nanny Zhou thought for a while and reminded Madam Di. Although she was grounded, it was a respectful behavior to send tonic to her mother-in-law, and the general couldn’t stop her.
“No!” Madam Di refused bluntly, and she looked much cold and gloomy. She smiled and said, “She kept sending medicine? How could she have so many medicines?”
“She bought them from the pharmacy store, and she would buy anything she thought was beneficial to health. After that, she sorted them out and sent them up to the mountain. It was said that Old Grandma was pleased!” Nanny Zhou reported. Although Madam Shui was taking in charge of everything, there were many loyal servants attached to Madam Di in the past, and it was easy for her to inquire about the news.
“She sorted them out first?” Madam Di pondered on the words, “Pour some of the stuff in my sachet into her medicine and make Shui Ruolan bring them up to the mountain.”
Her words made Nanny Zhou so shocked, and she lowered her voice while trembling, “Madam, you want to put Qing Qu Grass into the medicine?”
“Yes, I was thinking about how to approach that old lady. Since now Shui Ruolan would like to send medicine to her, then let her send. By then, if anything terrible happened, nobody could blame me.” Madam Di sneered.
“But… but Madam Shui had no reason to plot against Old Grandma!” Nanny Zhou felt her scheme unsafe and reminded her. Everything happened with a reason, and obviously, Old Grandma was the firm reliance of Shui Ruolan, so how could she put Qing Qu Grass powder which could make Old Grandma sick into Old Grandma’s medicine?
“Maybe she was too casual when doing things, and it was in chaos when the accident happened, how could anyone find it’s me?” Madam Di said indifferently, pointing to a direction with her finger, “If there were anyone who dislikes the old lady, that arrogant and capricious girl also made troubles in General’s Mansion, she dislikes the old lady either.”
She referred to Qi Rongzhi, and Nanny Zhou understood her.
“So… I’ll do it?” She hesitated a second and asked.
“Do it, and put the things inside by stealth. Be careful, don’t make others discover it. Shui Ruolan took charge of our yards for a short time. What can she know! Nobody trusts her except the girl servants by her side. She didn’t know medicine, and even if she sorts out the medicine one by one, she couldn’t discover anything.”
Madam Di said abruptly, and she urged, “be careful, don’t make anyone find it in the mansion, and be aware of the general!”
Instead of Shui Ruolan’s people, it was Qin Huaiyong’s followers that should be paid much attention to. If Qin Huaiyong found she put anything in the medicine, Qin Huaiyong wouldn’t forgive her.
“I’ll be careful, don’t worry, Madam!” Nanny Zhou said in a hurry.
Madam Di thought for a while and ordered her, “think of a way to made that girl go to Jingxin Monastery for at least one time, and if she could make any sensations, that would be much better. Even if anything terrible happened, people would only suspect her!”
Qi Rongzhi was not only arrogant but also vicious, and she was taken advantages in her mansion. Now Yuru was absent, and she would throw her temper at Qin Wanru. It was heard that her marriage was ruined, only a few sentences would make Qin Wanru furious.
The shared a good relationship between their two mansions, and Madam Di knew how to perform in her normal days. There were people that had close connections with Nanny Zhou in magistrate as well, so it was convenient for her to do this trick.
“Yes, I understand!” Nanny Zhou understood and she took out a sachet from the bottom of the dressing table. She always wore this sachet before, but since Old Grandma was not in mansion anymore, she felt it useless to wear it, so she took it off!
When Qin Wanru came out of Old Grandma’s room, it was dark already. She came in a late hour because he heard that Old Grandma was in poor health condition.
Under the guidance and the protection of Mingqiu Nun, Qin Wanru could do medical treatment for Old Grandma now. After she gave Old Grandma acupuncture, she helped her to have a rest.
“Nanny Duan, did Old Grandma touch something weird today?” Qin Wanru asked Nanny Duan to get out of the room and asked her at the door.
Grandma’s health condition was getting better, and she was recovering quickly. How could she get sick all of a sudden?
“She was alright in the morning, and Old Grandma barely coughed when Second Miss was here. But after lunch and a sleep, she didn’t feel right. Old Grandma didn’t touch anything in this period. She only had some bird’s nests, which were beneficial to her health. After that, I chatted with Old Grandma in the room.”
Nanny Duan felt confused because she was doing activities as her routine. But she coughed severely after she woke up, but was lighter than the earliest time when she got hit by the disease. However, Qin Wanru told her before, if Old Grandma’s health condition deteriorated, she must report to Qin Wanru instantly.
“Could she get sick because she kicked away the quilt while sleeping?” Nanny Duan guessed.
Qin Wanru shook her head. If she didn’t have any medical knowledge, she might think in the same way. But she checked and found grandma’s disease had nothing to do with this assumption, and it seemed to be caused by some ingredient.
“Did grandma eat the same kind of bird’s nest as she usually took?” Qin Wanru suspected and said.
“It was the kind that Old Grandma usually eats. It was the one that Madam Shui prepared down the mountain, and since our storage was about to use off, she sent more to Old Grandma for recovery.” Nanny Duan thought for a while. She could remember this clearly because the girl servant who cooked bird’s nest told her deliberately that they ran out of bird’s nest, and they couldn’t serve grandma a full bowl of bird’s nest. Therefore, she asked the girl servant to find in the new stock up, and she found new ones.
Nanny Duan believed Shui Ruolan’s items.
“Were the new bird’s nests delivered here today?”
“Yes, they arrived here today, and most of them were the same compared with the last time, and only a few of them were newly added into it.” Nanny Duan said seriously.
“Go get it, and I want to have a look!” An idea came into her mind suddenly, and she said in a hurry.
“Yes, I’ll go get it! Please wait Second Miss!” Nanny Duan’s face went pale, and if there were anything wrong with the medicine, then it was her fault of overlooking. She turned around and walked into the room hurriedly.
She knew Second Miss was following Jingxin Monastery master and Mingqiu Nun to learn medicine, and she was very professional now. Second Miss was always right when it comes to disease treatment.
In a second, she took out a bag of bird’s nest.
Qin Wanru unwrapped the package, and she started to check the bird’s nest. She didn’t find anything on her first glance, so she then took a small piece and sent it by her lips. Jingxin Monastery master has told her that ordinary people couldn’t tell the scent of Qing Qu Grass, so she could try to taste it.
She felt slight bitterness on her lips!
She trembled all over her body. It was Qing Qu Grass, and someone was plotting against to grandma. If grandma were absent, Madam Di would dominate the situation, and that was why she couldn’t wait to plot against grandma!
Qin Wanru was sure it was Madam Di’s fault that grandma suffered from this disease every year, and grandma even died because of it in her previous life. Madam Di’s old sachet filled with Qing Qu Grass, and now she couldn’t meet grandma, so she thought of this vicious method and sent the Qing Qu Grass powder to grandma.
Qin Wanru thought that grandma died in her previous life because grandma was too depressed about Wanru, but it turned out to be Madam Di. It was Madam Di who wanted to dominate the entire backyard, so she used this evil method to kill grandma.
Now she even put a harmful ingredient into medicine sent from the mansion, and if it were found, she wouldn’t be blamed. Madam Di was so tricky!
Madam Di had more than one scheme to deal with them!
“Nanny Duan, next time when medicine arrives here, you send everything to my place before anything is cooked into liquid. If you still needed something, please go down the mountain and get it yourself. You can visit some pharmacy stores and find something useful.” Qin Wanru put down the medicine in her hand and said to Nanny Duan.
“There was… something wrong with the medicine?” Nanny Duan got shocked.
“Yes, but it can’t be Mother. Someone did something to it when it was delivered here.” Qin Wanru said indirectly and she lowered her eyelashes.
Nanny Duan understood her words instantly. Shui Ruolan didn’t take in charge of the backyard for a long time, and Old Grandma was living up the mountain. She couldn’t win many hearts in the backyard and someone may do the trick behind her back. They wanted to harm grandma in the name of Shui Ruolan’s tonic!
Madam Di’s name came into Nanny Duan’s mind naturally. She knew Madam Di would not be affected even if the entire accident was exposed. So she nodded her head with depression and knew it was the best way for Qin Wanru to address this issue.
She paid much admiration to Second Miss who looked childish. She was so young but was so intelligent. Thinking of Old Grandma’s affections towards Second Miss in the past, and now Second Miss’s taking care of Old Grandma with all her efforts, Nanny Duan wanted to cry.
After settling down everything at Old Grandma’s side, she took Qing Yue to go back. It was dark already, and a lantern was hanging in Jingxin Monastery where the lantern was giving off light in the corner, so people could see who is encountering with.
While Qin Wanru was walking, she wondered the next person that Madam Di would set up. Suddenly, something beat her on her head, and she felt painful and covered her head. Lifting her head, she found an energetic person was looking at her above the tall tree!
