Ms. Doctor Divine - Chapter 39
Duke Changning and his wife were here? No wonder Chen Fu, the Butler of the Gu Family was here personally to ask her to show up.
However, why was she being asked to come there at this time?
Could they be here on behalf of Gu Ruxue? After all, she was the one who gave her the prescription, making them suspicious of her.
Thinking about this, Gu Chaoyan nodded.
She did not have to put on makeup or change dresses like other ladies. So, she got up immediately and said, “Lead the way, please.”
Chen Fu smiled and stepped out.
Qing was the only one serving Gu Chaoyan, so she brought her along. No one talked on the way.
They reached the front yard after sometime.
Gu Chaoyan discovered the changes that occurred in the front yard within just a day. The front yard, which used to be filled with begonia flowers, was now empty, except for a few sporadic flowers that were still blooming.
She smiled briefly. Her father did treat Gu Ruxue the best.
He had altered the entire front yard, only because she mentioned last evening that those flowers might affect Gu Ruxue’s recovery.
Gu Chaoyan did not have much of a reaction towards this move, yet she could feel that the original host of this body would not have been very happy to see this.
She sighed and walked into the hall of the front yard.
It was quiet in the hall. Gu Chaoyan spotted Duke Changning and his wife sitting on the upper seats. Next to them was Lu Jiming in a blue robe.
The previous Gu Chaoyan would have definitely gazed at Lu Jiming. He was a terrible man, yet he was indeed good-looking. No wonder the old Gu Chaoyan had done those things for his sake because even she found him attractive. Yet that happened before she met Lord Huai. After encountering Lord Huai the other day, she found that Lu Jiming was not that outstanding.
Suddenly Gu Chaoyan was startled when she realized that she was thinking about Lord Huai at this point.
Composing herself, she bowed and greeted the people in the hall politely. “Nice to meet you Duke Changning, Mrs. Changning and Prince.”
“You may rise!”
Gu Chaoyan stood straight and three pairs of eyes stayed fixed on her.
The Wang Family had given some clothes to her before she departed from their house. These were made based upon Gu Chaoyan’s instructions, and all of them were in light colors.
Probably because of the new clothes, Lu Jiming found this hideous woman looking a bit prettier than before. He found that she was no longer that annoying to his eyes. Lu Jiming had no other standard in picking a spouse, except that she had to be good-looking. Otherwise he would not have fallen for Gu Ruxue.
Duke Changning didn’t speak up, and Gu Chaoyan stayed silent as well.
Looking at the awkwardness in the room, Madame Gu said, “Chaoyan, come to my side.”
Seeing the smiling and affable-looking Madame Gu, Gu Chaoyan did not turn her down and approached her.
As she came to Madame Gu, she said, “The Duke Changning’s family is here, because they want to discuss your marriage.”
Gu Chaoyan’s face changed and she looked sharply at Lu Jiming.
“We had a small discussion the other day in the mansion. Duke Changning thinks that it is rude of us to cancel the marriage directly. Although your appearance and character are not enough to make you the princess, yet your mother helped us before, so we can’t completely ignore you.”
“Hence, we are here to offer the position of Concubine Princess to you.”
