Medical Princess - Chapter 800
Chapter 800 The Relationship Between Pushan Nun and Shao Yanru?
“Sister Wanru, can I have a word with you?” Qi Rongzhi, who was standing in the corner, noticed that Shao Wanru saw her, so she came out, took two steps forward, looked at Shao Wanru, and said.
Shao Wanru cast a cold glance at Qi Rongzhi.
She already knew that Qi Rongzhi’s plate was chosen. Seeing this woman appear in the etiquette-learning team several times but stay far away from her each time, she knew that Qi Rongzhi was trying to avoid her.
This time, she took the initiative to come forward, which was really surprising for Shao Wanru. Because Qi Rongzhi seemed to be afraid that she would have something to do with her, judging by her behaviors in the past few days.
“Miss Qi, you’d better call me Fifth Miss Shao. So what brings you here, Miss Qi?” Shao Wanru asked lightly. Under her long eyelashes, there seemed to be no beam of light in her calm eyes.
Qi Rongzhi pulled her sleeves uneasily. Every time she saw Shao Wanru, she always felt that this woman was changing and becoming more dignified. She somehow felt panicked.
“Miss Qi, if there is nothing else, you can go back!” Seeing that Qi Rongzhi remained silent for a long time, Shao Wanru turned around and intended to leave.
“Fifth Miss Shao, please wait for a moment,” Qi Rongzhi pondered on it again and said in a low voice, “I heard that something happened to the First Miss Shao… is it true?”
Shao Wanru paused, suddenly turned around, looked at Qi Rongzhi coldly, and said with a sneer, “Miss Qi, what do you want to know? What do you want to pry? This is the business of our Duke Xing’s Mansion. I won’t tell you. Miss Qi is no longer a member of Duke Xing’s Mansion!”
Since Qi Rongzhi escaped from Duke Xing’s Mansion, she had nothing to do with it anymore.
“I… I didn’t mean that. I just want to know…” Qi Rongzhi stammered, “I just want to ask if First Miss Shao is okay. If… if…”
“Miss Qi, who do you think you are to ask this question? If it’s just this question, it’s really unnecessary. Those who are too curious will die soon!” After saying that, Shao Wanru turned around and went back to her room, ignoring Qi Rongzhi.
Qi Rongzhi originally wanted to stop her, but in the end, she bit her lip and endured the urge. There was some unwillingness in her eyes as she watched Shao Wanru disappear from her sight.
In fact, she didn’t come for Shao Yanru. She was here merely to send a message by the order of Chu Liuyue, which was to ask if Shao Wanru was interested in being Princess Yue’s concubine. which was to ask if Shao Wanru was interested in being Princess Yue’s concubine.
Chu Liuxin met Chu Liuchen at the Empress’ place before and he had to leave. After leaving, he felt worried about this matter, so he asked Qi Rongzhi, whom he happened to encounter, to send a message.
Qi Rongzhi didn’t mention it at all, but only mentioned Shao Yanru, which successfully made Shao Wanru leave with anger. At this time, she took a deep breath and told herself that it was not that she didn’t want to send the message and it was because Shao Wanru didn’t give her the chance. Hence, she thought Prince Yue couldn’t blame her even if he wanted to.
Thinking of this, she felt relieved and turned back…
“Miss, what does Miss Qi mean? Why did she come all this way to say something we don’t understand?” Yujie was puzzled by Qi Rongzhi’s appearance and asked after entering the room.
Qi Rongzhi had been trying hard to avoiding them before, for fear that she would get involved with them, but today she came here and said those words intentionally. Anyone who heard these words would be in a bad mood. They wondered if she come here to make trouble on purpose?
“It should not be her idea.” Shao Wanru put down the stove in her hand and shook her head. Qi Rongzhi looked reluctant before.
“Who asked her to come here just to say these words to provoke the nobles in Duke Xing’s Mansion?” Yujie became more and more curious.
Shao Wanru shook her head. It was not easy to find this person. She might be a beauty who entered the palace with Qi Rongzhi, a noble lady from other palaces, or her “good” elder brother.
But there was one thing that she was sure of: Qi Rongzhi didn’t want to come, and she should have said more than that. However, no matter who sent her and what she wanted to say, it had nothing to do with Shao Wanru. She didn’t want to waste her time on Qi Rongzhi now.
“Ignore her for the time being!” Shao Wanru shook her head and stopped paying attention to Qi Rongzhi. “Yujie, go and inquire about some things about the amulet tomorrow. If someone doubts you and asks about the reason, just tell him that the mansion feels that there is something wrong with this matter and wants to clarify it.”
“There is something wrong with the amulet?” Yujie was not stupid, so she immediately understood Shao Wanru’s meaning.
Shao Wanru pondered for a moment and touched the stove on the table unconsciously. There was a trace of doubt in her clear eyes. She indeed suspected the amulet, but she suspected another person more–Pushan Nun.
The incident involving the amulet had just happened recently, and it seemed that it had something to do with the Beauty Contest. And it was such a coincidence because this woman was also familiar with Shao Yanru. As for Shao Yanru, she seemed t be more familiar with Pushan Nun than any other concubines in this palace.
After all, there was a master-disciple relationship between the two of them. From this point of view, Pushan Nun was different from others in Shao Yanru’s perspective.
On the other hand, Shao Wanru had always felt that Pushan Nun was very strange. In the past three years when she had been in the Yuhui Nunnery, but she had rarely seen this woman. It seemed that Pushan Nun was really an otherworldly Buddist who devoted herself to cultivation. However, if it was true, Pushan Nun would not have entered the palace, or she could have just rejected the invitation.
Now Pushan Nun lived in the Buddha Hall in the palace. There was even such a thing that was called the good luck amulet. Shao Wanru didn’t think it was the Empress who begged this nun to stay.
Pushan Nun had been in the Yuhui Nunnery for a long time. For so many years, the Empress had never asked for anything from this woman. This time, it might be Shao Yanru who mentioned it. Shao Wanru remembered the time when she invited Pushan Nun to enter the palace. It happened to be the time to send the religious paintings drawn by Pushan Nun to the palace.
Old Madam asked Nanny Yu to go up the mountain and forced her to send the “stained” album to the palace.
At that time, she had been prepared for it, which made Shao Yanru and Old Madam’s plan fail. Then the Empress summoned Pushan Nun to the palace. Shao Wanru would never believe that there was no connection between these two things.
Did it mean that Shao Yanru had planned it for a long time and was just looking for an opportunity to mention Pushan Nun? Shao Wanru suddenly thought of this possibility. Shao Yanru and Pushan Nun seemed to have no contact with each other, but there seemed to be faint connections everywhere.
If her assumption was true, this Pushan Nun was definitely not simple and she must have other plans. The imperial palace was the place with the most power. In fact, it was easy for her to figure out what this nun wanted, but this was just the matter on the surface. There must be a way for this nun to get what she wanted. How could she, a nun, get it?
She slowly cleared her watery eyes and thought about the details of the past.
Shao Yanru was a person seeking fame and reputation, while Pushan Nun seemed to be an enlightened nun. Since Pushan Nun had accepted Shao Yanru as her disciple, how could she not doubt her? However, she still got along well with Shao Yanru, which showed that there was something else behind it.
When she went up the mountain, Pushan Nun’s disciple made it difficult for her. Before going down the mountain, she also felt this nun was behind Shao Yanru’s plot against her. However, Pushan Nun was always seemed innocent and always gave people the impression that she was an otherworldly cultivator, which made people feel that it was blasphemy to suspect her.
“Yujie, you grew up in the nunnery. Have you ever seen a person like Pushan Nun?” Shao Wanru blinked, slowly opened her eyes, and asked Yujie with her calm eyes.
Yujie was stunned at first and then shook her head after thinking for a while. “Miss, Pushan Nun is like the kind of hermit in the clouds, and there is no one as otherworldly as her in Jiangzhou. Even Abbess of Jingxin Monastery is not as aloof as her.”
“Do you also think that Pushan Nun is very aloof?” Shao Wanru said with a smile.
“Of course, she seemed well-cultivated. I remember when I first arrived at the Yuhui Nunnery, Pushan Nun’s disciple made things difficult for us wholeheartedly and wanted to drive us down the mountain. In fact, Pushan Nun’s disciples are not very good!” Yujie recalled the past and said indignantly.
“How about the Yuhui Nunnery?” Shao Wanru changed the topic with a smile.
“The Yuhui Nunnery is too mysterious!” Yujie thought for a while and used two words to describe the Yuhui Nunnery, which was her conclusion in the past three years.
“Why?” Shao Wanru asked with interest.
“Miss, the Yuhui Nunnery is indeed mysterious. You see, so many things have happened in the Yuhui Nunnery. All of them are very mysterious. one day, a group of black-clad men came in to kill people, and then the Buddha Hall was set on fire, and the imperial concubine of the former emperor suddenly appeared. It’s a miracle that these secrets could stay undiscovered for such a long time! Someone has been watching outside the door. I can’t get close to them even if I want to during those three years.”
Yujie curled her lip and said.
Her words reminded Shao Wanru that she had seen more things than this maid.
Yuhui Nunnery was indeed mysterious, and so was Pushan Nun. She had an unfathomable intention. Regarding Shao Yanru, Pushan Nun was most likely the one who had been helping her secretly.
“Try to inquire more about Pushan Nun’s affairs in the palace, and just say that it’s because of the amulet.” After thinking for a while, Shao Wanru made up her mind.
“Don’t worry, Miss. I understand!” Yujie nodded and said.
Before the Beauty Contest was over, Shao Yanru had become an imperial concubine of the Emperor. As the eldest legitimate daughter of Duke Xing’s Mansion, she was merely designated as a Secondary Consort, which was a surprise for everyone.
Previously, Shao Yanru was a popular candidate for several princes’ first concubines. Everyone was guessing that since she would not be Princess Yue’s concubine, she must be Princess Zhou’s. Unexpectedly, she not only did not enter the princes’ mansion but also entered the palace at this time and became the imperial concubine of the lowest level. No matter how they looked at her, she was mysterious.
Because of the Emperor’s order, Duke Xing’s Mansion seemed gloomy. The sensitive servants didn’t even dare to speak loudly, for fear of provoking their master.
Everyone outside the mansion wondered what First Miss Shao had done to make her enter the palace as the lowest-leveled concubine at this time.
Some people thought it might be because of this, and some thought it was might because of that. Of course, none of the reasons was good. Some people dug up some old stories of Miss Shao. At first, they felt that it was not true, but this time, it was overwhelming. Everything showed that the First Miss was not a good person.
They all began to believe all her reputation in the past was fake and Miss Shao was not a kind-hearted lady and her behavior was wrong and she was just looking for fame. It was also said that the Emperor had given her a good position for the sake of Duke Xing. Some even said that Miss Shao was so restless that she wanted to hurt a pregnant imperial concubine, which made her became a Secondary Consort, the lowest among the concubines…
