Medical Princess - Chapter 969
Chapter 969 Make All the Arrangements and Complicated Plots
“Brother Qi!” Seeing Qi Tianyu, Qin Yuru was very excited. She wanted to get close to him, but she didn’t dare to. Standing where she was, she burst into tears. Suddenly, she knelt down, kowtowing to Qi Tianyu, and then crawled on the ground. “Brother Qi, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry!”
Like Chu Huairan, Qi Tianyu did not go to the cell to see Qin Yuru. Instead, he asked someone to bring her to a small room on the side to meet her.
He didn’t want too many people to know that he had been here!
“Sister Yuru, get up!” Looking at Qin Yuru as pitiful as this, Qi Tianyu said slowly.
The woman in front of him was not as enchanting as she used to be. At that time, Qin Yuru, in her prime, appeared courageous and enthusiastic. Those rules in the capital city hadn’t yet trapped her in. Since they were childhood sweethearts, they were special in each other’s eyes. Qi Tianyu had thought that they were destined to be together, so he also treated Qin Yuru with all his heart and soul.
Before the flowers and under the moon, they had spent a long romantic time together behind their elders. Although they didn’t make love, they had always hugged each other.
Now that he thought about it, he felt as if these things happened in their previous life!
The woman in front of him had long lost her lively appearance. She was skinny and wizened. It seemed as if she were more than ten years older than her sister. There was a trace of desperation in her eyes, making him feel quite dispirited.
Qin Yuru got up and sat down cautiously on a stool on one side. She put her hands on her rough dress and looked up at Qi Tianyu with tears in the corners of her eyes.
“Brother Qi, I… I regret it!” Qin Yuru slowly lowered her head and looked at her hands. Although there were still tears in the corners of her eyes, she smiled a little. It was a bitter smile in Qi Tianyu’s eyes.
He didn’t say anything, just pursing his lips tightly. His eyes landed on the table in front of him as if he were studying the lines on it!
Qin Yuru added, “Brother Qi, I have ended up in such a miserable situation. If… If there is a next life, I will never let you down. I will never allow myself to fall into such a situation. In the end, I even… ended up as a killer who murdered her mother!”
When Qin Yuru said this, her smile became brighter, but more and more tears kept coming out, which made her look even more pitiful.
Finally, Qi Tianyu sighed and raised his head. “Sister Yuru, what’s the point of saying this? It’s all in the past!”
“Is it all in the past? Oh, you’re right. When I was in Jiangzhou, I was the happiest. I was carefree and didn’t have much… Well, it’s just that my mother… my mother repeatedly told me how good the Duke Yong’s Mansion was… She kept warning me that if I didn’t marry into Duke Yong’s Mansion, she… she would no longer recognize me as her daughter… I… at that time…”
Speaking of this, Qin Yuru cried so hard that she couldn’t make a sound.
Qi Tianyu remained silent. He waited until her sobs ceased, and he said slowly, “What’s the point of talking about this now? It’s all over!”
“No, it isn’t. If it weren’t for this, I… I wouldn’t have done this to my mother…” Qin Yuru retorted excitedly. When she said this, she found that she had said something wrong and immediately shut up. However, the meaning of her words was very obvious.
“Do you mean that you killed your mother because she forced you to marry into Duke Yong’s Mansion?” Qi Tianyu asked in surprise.
He was not Chu Huairan, so he knew that it was true that Qin Yuru killed her mother. It was almost impossible for her to reverse the verdict. Nevertheless, when he heard it from Qin Yuru, he still felt very stunned.
“My life was ruined by my mother. Although she gave birth to me, she also destroyed me. Now that she is dead, I will also be sentenced to death. I believe I don’t owe her anything. Only you… Brother Qi…” Qin Yuru became so excited that her voice was broken when she said this. Then she couldn’t continue and burst into tears.
She meant that she and Madam Di were even, and the only one she felt sorry for was Qi Tianyu.
Though Qi Tianyu had no feelings for Qin Yuru now, or even hated her, he felt a little pity for her when he heard what she said.
Their deep affection in the past could not be expressed in just a few words.
“Brother Qi, tell me some things that happened in Jiangzhou. I don’t have any other thoughts now. It’s just that whenever I recall those past days by chance, I feel that I have experienced a happy life!” Qin Yuru finally managed to hold back her sobs and looked up at Qi Tianyu with expectation.
It was so hard to refuse such a request.
After pondering for a while, Qi Tianyu slowly talked about some of the past events in Jiangzhou, which were all about their childhood. As he talked about it, he marveled at how much things had changed.
At first, Qin Yuru only listened with tears in her eyes, but then she interrupted from time to time. When they recalled their past, some romantic feelings they had in the past were aroused.
Qi Tianyu kept talking while Qin Yuru listened with rapt attention. Two hours passed quickly, and they barely noticed it.
Qi Tianyu stood up and said apologetically, “Sister Yuru, I have to go back!”
“Brother Qi, please!” Qin Yuru stood up and turned sideways. After wiping away her tears, she forced a smile. She was very aware that such a smile would appear much bitter.
“If you want to know more about those past things in Jiangzhou, I can ask my servant to tell you!” Qi Tianyu thought for a while.
“Thank you, Brother Qi… I… Except for my father, only you have come here to see me!” Qin Yuru shed tears, lowering her head. She was pitifully thin now and was quite a different person from who she was in Jiangzhou.
If it weren’t for the fact that Qi Tianyu had been watching her fall into such a situation, he would have thought that the person in front of him was someone else.
After a sigh, he said, “Sister Yuru, you don’t have to be so polite. This is the only thing I can do now… From time to time, I will come to see you again!”
“Thank you, Brother Qi!”
Qin Yuru burst into tears again and then looked at Qi Tianyu with expecting eyes. Her eyes with tears didn’t look away even when Qi Tianyu left.
The female office tried to pull her away, but she pleaded, “Please… Please let me stay here a little longer. I’ll go back when I can no longer see him!”
The receding figure ahead paused for a moment, but he still left in the end.
“Princess, what does First Miss Qin want to do? To reunite with the First Young Master of the Qi Family?” When Qing’er reported it, Qu Le blinked her eyes and asked in confusion.
Would Qin Yuru be sincere? Of course not!
Shao Wanru put down the medical book in her hand and shook her head. It was never easy to fool Qi Tianyu. With Qi Tianyu’s character, he could never fall in love with Qin Yuru again. Qin Yuru was very clear about that. However, for the sake of their previous relationship and the Grand Prince’s Mansion, he could take care of her.
As long as Qin Yuru didn’t ask for too much, he could satisfy her needs.
Qin Yuru broke off their engagement, so Qi Tianyu was the victim. Now when others learned that he was willing to take care of Qin Yuru, they would only think of him as a generous and faithful man.
Qi Tianyu was fully aware that an official’s reputation was very important.
“Has the servant gone there?”
“Yes. A servant went there early the next morning. The First Young Master of the Qi Family had a deal with the prison. The young male servant also brought a meal to visit First Miss Qin and even sat in the cell to chat with her for four hours. When he came out, he seemed to be rewarded and told the prison officer that he would come back tomorrow!” Qing’er said.
It was not difficult to find out the information, but it was not clear what they were talking about. The prison was very well guarded. It was not easy to find out what information they had exchanged.
Of course, if Shao Wanru really wanted to know it, Qing’er also had a way.
“Think of a way to get in touch with the servant and find out who he was talking about with Qin Yuru. Then you can approach him as a maid from the Grand Prince’s Mansion!” Shao Wanru thought for a while and got this idea.
Compared with inquiring for information from the prison, it would be much easier to get it from Qi Tianyu’s servant. The servant had been staying with Qi Tianyu since they were in Jiangzhou. It was true that he was loyal to Qi Tianyu, but he had a drinking problem. He could say anything when he was drunk.
Moreover, it was reasonable to inquire about Qin Yuru as someone from the Grand Prince’s Mansion. Chu Huairan had been to the prison before, which meant that the Grand Prince’s Mansion still recognized Qin Yuru as a family member.
In the eyes of those with ulterior motives, there were a lot of things that could be done.
Whether to protect their reputation or for other reasons, Chu Huairan admitted that Qin Yuru was his daughter.
“Do you want us to get in touch with the servant immediately?” After thinking for a while, Qing’er asked.
“Don’t hurry to inquire about the information at first. I just need you to get in touch with the servant. I’m afraid that it would arouse Qi Tianyu’s suspicion if he got drunk recently. Let’s observe him for a few days first!” Shao Wanru shook her head and said, “Try to let him believe that the person he meets is definitely from the Grand Prince’s Mansion!”
Qi Tianyu’s servant was usually a cautious person. He would drink too much with a stranger. Thus, they had to quieten his suspicions beforehand.
If Qin Yuru wanted to know something from the young male servant, she would not be able to get what she wanted at once. Instead, she also had to gain his trust first.
The matter of her parents in Jiangzhou was full of doubts. Shao Wanru couldn’t get anything from Qi Tianyu, but Qin Yuru could. Although Qin Yuru couldn’t compare with Qi Tianyu, her current situation could help her eliminate Qi Tianyu’s suspicion.
When it came to the matter of Jiangzhou, they had to start from Qi Tianyu!
Qin Huaiyong and Jiangzhou’s magistrate must know something. There was no evidence in the capital city, but what about Jiangzhou?
Qin Yuru played as a pawn for her!
It was time to see if this pawn could play its role.
Qing’er immediately understood Shao Wanru’s meaning and said, “Please rest assured. I’ll arrange for someone to get in contact with the servant. After winning his trust, our person will take him to drink. In the next few days, we’ll just need to get familiar with each other.” She then left to arrange the people.
Qing’er was in charge of the guards of the inner court of Prince Chen’s Mansion and some secret guards. Besides, she would protect Shao Wanru closely. Before Chu Liuchen left, he called Qing’er over, telling her to guard Shao Wanru well.
As soon as Qing’er left, Yujie suddenly came in to report with a smile. “Princess, Miss Zhang is here to see you!”
The visitor was the daughter of Prime Minister Zhang, who met Shao Wanru in the Yuhui Nunnery. Then, they got along very well with each other during the Pageant. Although she would be Princess Yue, Shao Wanru still appreciated her.
