Medical Princess - Chapter 796
Chapter 796 He Wanted to Get Shao Wanru!
“I don’t know. We’ll know it after inquiring about it!” Chu Liuchen narrowed his eyes. His eyes were shining brightly, which looked really moving. Compared with Shao Wanru, his lips had always been light-colored and too pale. He was really a quiet handsome young man.
Although Shao Wanru had long known that he was extremely handsome, she couldn’t help being stunned at the moment. Then she came to her senses, blushed, and hurriedly lowered her head.
Chu Liuchen raised the corner of his mouth in a good mood and said, “You want to ask who can inquire so clearly about this matter, which happened only recently?”
Shao Wanru nodded, tried hard to calm down, and said, “Doesn’t everyone in the palace know it, right?”
“Few people know about it, but I can inquire about it!” Chu Liuchen said meaningfully. Shao Wanru fell silent because she knew that she could not find any clues in this way.
“If you must investigate it, you can actually do it.” Chu Liuchen suddenly smiled and reached out to pull Shao Wanru’s hand.
Shao Wanru was shocked. She hurriedly looked around and said in a low voice, “Someone will see us!”
“What are you afraid of? Imperial Grandmother has even written an edict. You are my fiancée. Will people gossip when they see me holding your hand?”
Chu Liuchen raised his eyebrows gloomily. In fact, he could achieve his goal in another way. Although it was bloody, the effect was obvious.
The method was either useful or not. For him, in fact, he never avoided the more effective method.
“But…” Shao Wanru was not only blushed this time but also flushed with anger. She struggled uneasily and tried hard to get rid of his grip.
“Don’t worry, no one will see it!” Chu Liuchen didn’t let go of her hand but put it down. His wide sleeves happened to cover their hands which were holding together.
Feeling the texture of the cloth in her hand, Shao Wanru breathed a sigh of relief and calmed down. Then she shook her head, refused Chu Liuchen, and said, “You don’t have to investigate it. I will do it.”
“Really?” Chu Liuchen asked casually.
“Really. It’s not in a hurry now. Besides, it’s not okay to get to the bottom of it!” Shao Wanru said decisively.
If she wanted to investigate it, she would definitely investigate it slowly without using Chu Liuchen’s power. Many people in the palace had intervened in it. She was afraid that any slight movement of Chu Liuchen would cause the whole situation to change.
There was one more thing that Shao Wanru did not say clearly, but she believed that Chu Liuchen would understand it. One should not be too faultfinding. It was just the beginning. If she found out everything at this time, it would be more difficult to find out if the enemy moved in the dark.
Shao Wanru had something on her mind. What she wanted to investigate was actually about her parents. It was not so easy to dig up a story of more than a decade ago.
She had to be calmer and more patient in order to figure out all the things that had happened in the past bit by bit.
She should handle this matter slowly. Now she just found clues from Shao Yanru’s matter, so it could not be cut off. She wanted to find out everything slowly through the clues.
Shao Wanru had a hunch that it was related to the past.
“You really don’t want me to intervene?” Chu Liuchen, who had always been gentle, said with a trace of gloom in his eyes. He tilted his head slightly to look at Shao Wanru and asked that. In front of her, he did not intend to hide his joy and anger, nor did he need to pretend to be gentle. He had always lived in the darkness and had never intended to let himself leave it.
In front of her, he was different. It seemed that she was an exception to him at the beginning!
He was inexplicably moved. She allowed him to hold her slender and little hand obediently, which made him feel indescribably satisfied. Only when he was with her did he feel that he was a living person. At this time, he could express his own joys and sorrows, no longer as gentle and elegant as he showed according to the different scenes.
Chu Liuchen was never a gentle and elegant person.
“There is really no need.” After saying that, Shao Wanru felt that her hand was held tightly by Chu Liuchen, so she continued to say hurriedly, “At least I don’t need it for the time being. I may have to trouble you next!”
As soon as she finished speaking, she felt that the strength exerted on her hand reduced.
“Come to me if you need anything,” Chu Liuchen said in a light voice.
“I know!” Shao Wanru nodded and turned to look at him. Seeing him pursing his lips tightly and looking displeased, she couldn’t help smiling.
“Prince, can you go back now? The Emperor may be waiting for you!” She shook her hand gently, which attracted Chu Liuchen’s attention.
“He won’t wait for me!” Chu Liuchen said casually, “In fact, I’m here for a walk. It’s impossible to let me do that. It’s not a good thing!”
“So… the Emperor didn’t ask you to come here?” Shao Wanru widened her watery eyes and looked at Chu Liuchen in front of her speechlessly.
She thought in her mind. “What a bold man! He even dared to deceive the Emperor and did it so naturally. Wasn’t he afraid that the Emperor would punish him?”
“Are you worried about me?” Chu Liuchen smiled. His smile was indescribably gentle, like a spring breeze warming the whole frozen country, as if all the gloom in his eyes had turned into ashes, which made her heart beat wildly unconsciously.
“Well, I will be fine and won’t be punished,” Chu Liuchen waved his hand and said with a smile.
“Your highness, you’d better go back first. You just met Prince Yue. It’ll be terrible if he says something when he goes back!” Shao Wanru said with some worry.
Others naturally did not dare to offend him, but Chu Liuyue was an exception. Moreover, Chu Liuyue looked weird today. It was possible that he would go to the Emperor to complain.
“Don’t worry. He doesn’t dare to say anything. Not only does Shao Yanru have something to do with the emperor, but she also has something to do with him. If he shows his interest in Shao Yanru’s affairs at this time, what will the emperor think? Maybe the emperor will think that Chu Liuyue wants to compete with him for a woman!” Chu Liuchen said calmly.
His words made Shao Wanru fall silent for a while. What he said was reasonable. Chu Liuyue did not dare to nag in front of the Emperor in order to avoid arousing suspicion.
But she still felt strange that Chu Liuyue appeared in front of her at this time, which was a little abnormal.
Xiao Xuanzi suddenly took a few steps forward and whispered something to Chu Liuchen. Shao Wanru didn’t hear it clearly, but only saw that Chu Liuchen’s face immediately became solemn. Although the smile on his face was still gentle and elegant, it inexplicably made people feel that it was cold and gloomy.
“If you have something to do, go ahead!” Shao Wanru stood still and looked at the sky. “I can’t go any further at this time. I have to go back to Chuxiu Palace as soon as possible. If I go back late, it will inevitably arouse suspicion!”
Chu Liuchen didn’t stop her this time, let go of her hand, and said, “Okay, you can go back first!”
Then she stepped aside. Two eunuchs who carried an empty soft sedan hurried forward.
After Shao Wanru got into the sedan, the two eunuchs carried her out of sight. The smile on Chu Liuchen’s face immediately disappeared, and there was a cold gloom and cruelty in his eyes. Xiao Xuanzi knew that his master had never been a gentle person, so he became more and more cautious.
“What’s the matter? Did he go to the Empress’s palace?”
“Yes, it’s true. It’s said that Prince Yue went to the Empress’s palace in a hurry! It seems that he has something important to discuss with the Empress.”
Xiao Xuanzi reported in a low voice.
“Let’s go. I also want to see the Empress. I haven’t been to the Phoenix Palace of the Empress for a long time!” Chu Liuchen said and sat in a wheelchair. Xiao Xuanzi pushed the wheelchair and turned a corner towards the direction of the Phoenix Palace.
In the Phoenix Palace, Chu Liuyue sat upright in front of the Empress. He picked up the tea in his hand, took a sip, and then slowly put it down. His movements were extremely elegant and natural, without any anger or other meanings, as if he had not met Chu Liuchen and wasn’t bullied before.
“I heard that something happened in your palace and it has something to do with the First Miss of Duke Xing’s Mansion,” Chu Liuyue raised his head and asked with a light smile and concern.
He did not ask it deliberately, nor did he pay much attention to it. It seemed that he just talked about a trifle after he heard it.
The Empress put down the teacup in her hand, wiped the water from the corner of her mouth with a handkerchief, and said with a gentle smile, “It’s not a big deal. The Emperor married the First Miss of Duke Xing’s Mansion and bestowed her the title of Secondary Consort. I heard that you were friends when you were young, but her seniority will be different in the future.”
The words were actually painful. A few days ago, Chu Liuyue and Chu Liuzhou just fought for Shao Yanru. Later, Chu Liuzhou also told the Empress about it in detail. At that time, he was a little reckless. He directly rushed in after hearing ambiguous words of Chu Liuyue. Later, he thought carefully and found that Shao Yanru did not say anything about joining forces with Chu Liuyue to plot against him.
Chu Liuzhou felt a little regretful and thought that he shouldn’t have made such a scene at that time and almost forced Shao Yanru to commit suicide to apologize. However, the Empress didn’t think so. As a woman, she intuitively felt that Shao Yanru was definitely not innocent in this matter, just like what had happened today. It was weird that Shao Yanru seemed to be the victim in the end.
Shao Yanru couldn’t be innocent. She was just a scheming woman, but now she couldn’t do anything even if she had any plot!
“In fact, Secondary Consort is noble enough. it is… First Miss’s blessing to get the favor of my father!” Chu Liuyue said calmly. He came to see the Empress today, not for Shao Yanru. Shao Yanru was just a tool. At this time, it was impossible for him to have any other thoughts about Shao Yanru.
“It’s good that you think so. Your father is also gratified!” The Empress did not intend to let him go. She continued to say something painful for him as if Chu Liuyue was originally going to compete for a woman with the Emperor.
Knowing that the Empress wasn’t happy with the fight between him and Chu Liuzhou, Chu Liuyue didn’t get angry and let her take it out on him again and again.
He could tolerate such a trifle. Moreover, he really didn’t have any affection for Shao Yanru now, so he didn’t think it was hard to accept the result. He didn’t care who Shao Yanru married but he cared about Shao Wanru. He wanted to get Shao Wanru!
