The Doctress with Healing Hands - Chapter 38
Cruel and Merciless? You Asked for it!
Zhao Yuchen was frightened by her solemn look which made him realize that there was no possibility to bargain over it .
The person captured now was her beloved son that she had conceived for ten months .
From what he knew of Ruoqing, by no means would she be indifferent to her son who was in danger .
Even asked to undergo the most severe trials, she would be bound to jump into the trap willingly for her son without a frown .
That moment, feelings of bitterness and helplessness filled in Zhao Yuchen’s heart .
One side was his own son, while the other side was his devoted woman . Finally he compromised reluctantly on Bai Qingqing’s proposal in the dilemma .
Three days later, Bai Qingqing kept her promise and went to Red-crowned Crane Manor alone .
Though she had been well aware that Zhao Yuting was the initiator of evil, she was still outraged after seeing his appearance again .
Seeing Bai Qingqing did come alone, Zhao Yuting who had waited for a long time showed a sinister smile .
“I thought you would fail to keep an appointment but you took risks and came alone for the only son of the Seventh . I wonder what relationship between you and Zhao Rui . And why do you care so much about the Seventh’s son with other woman?”
Zhao Yuting surely attempted to look for a real answer from her with this stratagem .
Only the person concerned could solve these questions .
He wanted to see the reaction of the woman who had no kinship with Zhao Rui after knowing he was in danger .
If Bai Qingqing really had the same memory as Su Ruoqing, never would she stand watching him suffer .
If not, all his previous questions and assumptions were false .
The fact was Bai Qingqing appeared as he expected, which made him excited, also shocked .
Were Bai Qingqing and Suo Ruoqing the same person?
“Where is the emperor? I’m going to meet him!”
“You haven’t answered my question . ”
“Isn’t my appearance the beat answer for you?”
Zhao Yuting highly raised his eyebrows, “You know what I want?”
“I don’t care . I just want to see the emperor now . ”
“Well I can meet your need but I have a requirement . . . ”
Zhao Yuting slowly stood up, came close to her with a sexy evil smile and pointed to his own mouth, said jokingly, “I’ll let him out so long as you kiss me . ”
Bai Qingqing’s face clouded and snapped, “Don’t you think it shameless?”
“So the answer is no or not?”
Seeing him smiling like a cat that ate the canary, Bai Qingqing sneered, “Lord Fengyang is not only sinister and scaring, but a crafty guy . ”
Zhao Yuting smiled drily, “You’ve been clear what a person I am before . ”
“You promise I can see the emperor if I kiss you?”
“That depends on your action . ”
“Ok, just like kissing a pig . ”
With it she moved her body forward, ready to kiss him .
At this moment the door was kicked open . Without doubt it was Zhao Yuchen who secretly tailedfollowed in the wake of Bai Qingqing .
His appearance shocked Bai Qingqing, but seemed to meet Zhao Yuting’s expectations .
Being disturbed, Zhao Yuting wasn’t angry but grined, “It seems only wicked efforts can force you such a cowardly turtle to show up . Seeing your woman act like a man-chaser isn’t comfortable, right?”
“That’s your intention to stir up much trouble?” Zhao Yuchen said .
“It surely can’t be that simple . ”
Then Zhao Yuting took Bai Qinqing who was in shock into his arms, said arrogantly, “You took advantage of your identity as Crown Prince to seize Suo Ruoqing from me . Should I return like for like?”
He continued, “Brother, to be honest, I’m interested in Bai Qingqing and now my house acquires a hostess to keep . That year I parted with my devoted wife to you, now it’s your turn . ”
“The Ninth, you’re dreaming . ”
“You have no say . ”
Zhao Yuting confidently looked at the woman in his arms, said jokingly, “Qingqing, don’t forget Zhao Rui is still at my mercy . Just compromise my proposal and marry me if you want Zhao Rui to be safe and sound . I can give you whatever he can . ”
Before Bai Qingqing answered, Zhao Yuchen couldn’t control his anger and snapped, “You think you can get away with death sentence, the Ninth?”
Zhao Yuting replied indifferently, “Would I take risks with no perfectly sound guarantee?”
With it he whistled vigorously .
Soon a group of skilled assassins in black showed up outside the room, surrounding those in the room completely .
“Brother, you got away with being killed in the Putuo Temple . But you couldn’t be lucky this time . Don’t even try since you’ve fallen into my trap . ”
“You finally admit doing that in Putuo Temple?”
“You were disloyal and reduced me to a laughing stock for everyone that year . That’s why I’m merciless and want to kill you . I have said those who made me painful would also be painful . . . ”
Zhao Yuchen sneered, “You’re so confident . You think you can fight you, a sinful guy’s way out with the help of several people . ”
“Can I take it as your final struggle, brother?”
Zhao Yuting continued conceitedly, “I hate fight an uncertain battle . Since I come to the capital and set the trap, I’m sure I’ll win at last . But you, an Emperor Emeritus who had early given up the throne, were merely an outdated ruler for the Great Yan Kingdom .
I have enlarged the army and nobbled officials secretly for six years and now at least two thirds of the military forces of the country are under my control .
Brother, sadly to tell you have no way but to die . ”
With it, he lowered his head as if demonstrating to Zhao Yuchen and tried to kiss Bai Qingqing .
At the critical moment, Zhao Yuchen who had kept quiet suddenly stabbed Zhao Yuting in his chest with a sword .
On no account was Zhao Yuting motionless and he leaned to his side, avoiding the attack .
Between them, Bai Qingqing was pushed away by Zhao Yuting and staggered . Before she came to senses, the two had fought with each other .
Years of eye disease made Zhao Yuchen’s skills which had been excellent slightly lower than Zhao Yuting, because of lack of practice .
Dozens of rounds later, Zhao Yuchen was obviously overwhelmed .
At the urgent time the sword nearly reached his throat, Bai Qingqing abruptly blurted out, “Lord Ninth, you hated that Su Ruoqing had broken her promise and married Crown Prince, so you played her off against Lord Seventh and caused her death, which was a great price she had paid .
Six years have passed, why you still hold it and raised the storm, making the peaceful world involved in the dispute .
It’s reasonable if you really love Su Ruoqing, but for you she is just a pet at your mercy instead of your beloved . Why do you fight for her?”
Her abrupt words made the two men distract .
Zhao Yuting instinctively avoided Zhao Yuchen’s sword and snapped, “Who said I had never loved her? Why did I marry her that year and why was I full of jealousy and anger when I saw she married the Seventh if I don’t love her?”
