Medical Princess - Chapter 85
Chapter 85 The Troublemaker Qu Le
The wedding feast went through smoothly, and Madam Di didn’t make any troubles while everyone thought she would deliver some accidents this time. However, she was found nowhere, and it was said that she was sick.
Indeed, few people believed her pretext of “getting sick”, and there were well-informed ones said she was not sick but grounded.
After the wedding ceremony of Shui Ruolan, Qin Wanru and Old Grandma returned to Jingxin Monastery.
Old Grandma required to take a good rest, and Qin Wanru volunteered to serve her. Therefore, from now on, Shui Ruolan was taking everything in control in the mansion.
There were not many cart drivers in the mansion, and all of them were involved in the accident this time. So she changed several of them, and after they went back to the mountain, Qin Wanru took more girl servants with her.
Naturally, Qing Yue was following them and a new second-level girl servant called Qu Le and another two little girl servants. They had more servants than last time.
When they arrived in Jingxin Monastery, and they remained living in the room they lived before. Initially, they were only planning to get down the mountain and anchor the wedding ceremony for General’s Mansion. Old Grandma and Qin Wanru left many of their belongings in Jingxin Monastery, so it was unnecessary for them to carry too much luggage.
Qin Wanru took leisure time on the mountain for the next half month.
Old Grandma’s health condition was recovering gradually, and Qin Wanru’s medical skills were improving dramatically. Relying on her previous life’s foundation in medicine, she forged ahead with strong momentum, and her techniques in acupuncture were developing fast as well. Her progress made Mingqiu Nun exclaimed that she adopted an excellent student for herself because Qin Wanru was so talented in learning medicine!
She was taking her medical learning very seriously. When people down the mountain visited Jingxin Monastery for medical care, Qin Wanru would sit beside her in the room and observed Jingxin Monastery master’s treatment and prescriptions.
“Miss, Qu Le sneaked out to meet someone again!” Under the lamp, Qin Wanru was reading her medicine book carefully, but Qing Yue came in and whispered to her.
“How many times this month?” Qin Wanru looked at the shadow of the lamp and asked.
Qing Yue understood her intention, “this is the third time, and I have followed your order and warned her several times.”
“Since then, you take her here!” A coldness was flashing in Qin Wanru’s eyes. Even Madam Di didn’t expect the emergence of Qu Le. Therefore, Madam Di was asking to take Qu Le by her side for many times. But Madam Di couldn’t even protect herself so that she couldn’t help Qu Le neither.
Qing Yue nodded her head and took Qu Le with her after a second.
Qu Le kneeled in front of Qin Wanru immediately once she stepped into the room, “Second Miss, I… I am just missing my mother so much, and I didn’t do anything bad.”
She finished her sentence and burst out crying. “There is really nothing, please forgive me Second Miss .”
“Qu Le, I told you last time. After you came into the mansion, you belong to General’s Mansion because you were sold to serve here. You need to cut off all the connections with the people you knew before, even if you wanted to visit anyone, you need to tell miss and earned the permission from the miss, then you’re allowed to meet it. However, you sneaked out to meet someone, have you ever taken your miss seriously?”
Qing Yue reprimanded harshly.
“I certainly listen to miss for everything, but… but my mother was sick, and my father knew I am here in Jingxin Monastery, so he went up to the mountain and told me, but… but that’s all!” Qu Le argued and defended herself. She was crying, and she looked very disheartening.
She was not only feeling sad, but she was somewhat angry as well, she thought Qin Wanru was unreasonable and cold blood.
“Your mother is sick, but your father didn’t visit General’s Mansion and came to Jingxin Monastery? Your father was really magical!” Replying indifferently, Qin Wanru took her teacup and took a sip.
Qu Le looked panicking because she didn’t expect Qin Wanru would suddenly jump out of the subject they were discussing and replied like this.
“Maybe… maybe someone in the mansion told my father this news!”
“You’re new here in General’s Mansion and knew few people. Only people from your yard know you. When I left, I told Nanny Yu deliberately, do not spread the news about you following me to Jingxin Monastery. So how could your father know it?” Qin Wanru looked gloomy, and she examined Qu Le with indescribable dignity and sternness.
“I… I… don’t know!”
“I heard that your father came to you the second day you went up to the mountain. He was responding so fast, and if nobody told him, he couldn’t find you anyway. So Qu Le, tell me, what did your father want you to do, and who asked him to find you?” Qin Wanru said in a cold face.
Her childish face looked nervous, and her facial expression became rigid. Her cold and chilling eyes could penetrate the heart.
Qu Le’s eyes were wandering and dared not to look into Qin Wanru’s eyes. She stammered and explained, “I… I don’t know… maybe it is a coincidence. My mother was sick, so my father came to Jingxin Monastery to pray for her, and we… we met by coincidence!”
“Praying for your mother?” Qin Wanru sneered and put down her teacup heavily on the table which shook the table and made a sharp and piercing sound.
“Qu Le, do you think I’m so young that I don’t know anything and I’m easy to be messed up? Qu Le, you belong to General’s Mansion now. If you were unsatisfied with me, I have every reason to sell you. The person who takes in charge is my mother, not Madam, don’t you know it!”
Qin Wanru didn’t speak in a high voice and carried with a childish voice in her age, but it sounded cold in Qu Le’s ears, and made Qu Le fail to support herself, she kneeled on the ground.
“Qing Yue, go to old woman Ya and sell her tomorrow far away because I don’t want to see her anymore on the land of Jiangzhou!” Qin Wanru sneered. With her words, nobody in Jiangzhou Prefecture could buy Qu Le, and she could never see her mother and father again.
“Yes, Miss. I’ll ask people to go down the mountain and find old woman Ya!” Qing Yue nodded her head and she took a glimpse at Qu Le with a sneer. She didn’t want to keep Qu Le at all.
“Second Miss, Second Miss, I’ll say, I’ll tell you all, please forgive me, Second Miss.” Qu Le went into a panic because she realized Qin Wanru was punishing her severely this time. She reached out her hands and held Qin Wanru’s leg, but she was pushed away by Qing Yue, and another two girl servants came to her and wanted to drag her out.
Qu Le was struggling violently, “Miss, what do you want to know? I’ll tell you everything, and please let me go!”
It seemed that Qin Wanru didn’t hear her words or she didn’t care at all. She picked up a medicine book on the shelf and disregarded Qu Le’s words at all.
“Miss, Miss. My father got my news from Madam Di. Miss, it’s Madam Di.” Qu Le was thinking about sounding out her intention, but it seemed that Qin Wanru didn’t care at all. Now she held the door frame and yelled out without any hesitation in a hurry and dared not to cover any truth.
“Take her back!” Qin Wanru lifted her slender eyebrows indifferently, and she looked at Qu Le calmly again.
Qu Le dared not to conceal anything in front of Qin Wanru who looked so chilled when looking at her, and she said, “Miss, it’s really Madam Di who found my father here, and my mother was really sick, Madam… Madam Di asked people to send my father money and told my father that I’m Jingxin Monastery, and… and… ”
“And ask you to keep an eye on me?” Qin Wanru’s long eyelashes fluttered, and her eyes became much cold now.
“Yes… that’s what she said.” Qu Le was so scared just now, and she lowered her head after Qin Wanru finished her question.
“To ask you keeping an eye on me for what?” Qin Wanru raised her eyebrows and asked indifferently.
“She… she said, if you did anything abnormal, tell my father instantly and then he would tell Madam Di.”
“What did you find for other times? You father was visiting you for so many times?” Qin Wanru asked.
“I… I didn’t find much. I was only eager to know how was my mother’s illness. So I told my father when he was not occupied, went up to the mountain and visit me frequently. Miss, please trust me, I said nothing. Whenever my father reported to Madam, he didn’t say anything either!” Qu Le shook her head in a panic, and the truth was she truely found nothing. Qin Wanru spent all her time at Jingxin Monastery master for meditation and serving Old Grandma.
“So you ask your father to come here, and your father will report to Madam?” Qin Wanru said.
“Yes… yes. Every time my father meets me, and he must visit and report to Madam because this is Madam’s order and Madam paid money for my mother’s illness treatment…” Qu Le’ voice became lower, and she lowered her head too.
Qin Wanru frowned, and she knew Qu Le couldn’t probe into anything, but why Madam Di took this so seriously? She had a feeling, and she didn’t understand what Madam Di was scheming for.
She was standing opposite to Madam Di’s stance for many years, and this was known to both father and grandma. If Madam Di were thinking to target her, it was useless to collect some rumors only based on some girl servants’ news.
But she insisted on doing this. Nothing happened to Qing Xue in the mansion, but Qu Le, who was not suspicious before, kept making troubles. This was so confusing.
From the information she collected before, she knew Qu Le was here only by accident, which neither Qin Yuru nor Madam Di had expected. Now, Madam Di was approaching to Qu Le madly, and was Madam Di’s real intention was to collect some rumors and misbehavior from her Qin Wanru?
A second level girl servant who just entered mansion had nothing different from other ordinary and rough servants. How could she know anything valuable?
Maybe it was not because of Qu Le, but it related to the business happened in Qu Le’s family? Her intuition told her it had connection to herself for sure.
Madam Di wouldn’t be so idle, so there must be significant events, which she had to pay attention to even if she was now grounded, this matter could not be mistakenly treated.
“When’ll your father go up the mountain?” Qin Wanru sneered, and she looked gloomy in the dark corner. Maybe she should change her mind, this issue had nothing to do with Qu Le but was it because of her family?
“Three days, three days later, my father said he would visit me in three days and told me how my mother was.” Qu Le kneeled in an upright position, and she wiped her tears and said!
