Pampered Poisonous Royal Wife - Chapter 378
~ RETURNING TO THE CAPITAL, SU YUYI WAS SERIOUSLY ILL ~
Mu Yunyao slightly raised her eyes. Seeing that Su Yaxian wasn’t willing to speak up and tell the truth, she didn’t try to force it out, “Cousin Yaxian’s injuries are quite serious. I’ll get someone to bring some easily digest congee over, and Cousin will be better off after eating it. The medicine will be ready later, so someone will send it over.”
“Little Sister Yunyao, was you who took care of me last night?”
“Your injuries are quite severe, and you don’t have a maid by your side. It’s not convenient for the Imperial Physician to help you with your wounds, so I’m the only one who can help.”
“Thank you very much.” Su Yaxian lowered her eyes. She had a complicated feeling in her heart. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to tell Mu Yunyao the truth, but it involved the Sixth Princess, Su Qingwu, and Zhang Wan. She was afraid that if she said something wrong, it would lead to a fatal disaster.
“It’s just a small matter. Cousin, you don’t have to worry about it. Just take care of your injuries, and don’t ever start burning again.”
Su Yajing and Su Yaling had already gotten up and returned to this tent. Seeing this, Mu Yunyao started to leave.
Some people had already started loading their luggage onto the carriages, and the guards had begun packing up the tent nearby. It seemed that they would have to return to the Capital as planned today.
Jin Lan helped Mu Yunyao get some water to freshen up, and Si Shu went out to inquire about the news.
After Mu Yunyao finished eating, the Si Shu rushed back, “Miss, I heard that Miss Zhang is not well, has been groggy since long ago, and hasn’t woken up. Moreover, last night, the Sixth Princess didn’t go after some white fox, but she rather saw a wolf cub. She thought it was interesting and shot him. Unexpectedly, she would attract a pack of wolves. Miss Zhang actually shouldn’t have been injured so badly. Eldest Young Master had already put her and the Sixth Princess on horseback, but he didn’t think that … The Sixth Princess pushed her down. ”
Mu Yunyao frowned, “No wonder when I asked Cousin Yaxian today, she faltered and was unwilling to speak the truth. She only said that she couldn’t remember clearly, so it turned out that there was still this problem.”
Jin Lan was full of surprise when she heard this. “That Sixth Princess is too audacious. Miss Zhang is the direct descendant of the Great Scholar’s residence. Furthermore, she is engaged to Eldest Young Master. The marriage is about to end in a few months. If people were know that she push people away like this…”
“Jin Lan!” Mu Yunyao opened her mouth to stop her, “Treat these words as if you’ve never heard of them before. Don’t leak a single word, otherwise even I wouldn’t be able to protect you.” The Emperor would definitely ban the actions of the Sixth Princess, and Zhang Wan could only be injured to protect the Sixth Princess.
Jin Lan hurriedly replied, “Yes,this servant understand. Please rest a.s.sured, Miss.”
Mu Yunyao nodded, “Let’s start packing up. We should be leaving soon.”
After about an hour, everyone packed their luggage and prepared to leave. As soon as Mu Yunyao came to the carriage, she saw the pale-faced Su Qingwu approaching her. He was b.l.o.o.d.y, and his eyes were much deeper than before: “Yunyao, how about Yaxian?”
“Cousin Yaxian’s shoulder is severely injured. However, if she well rested, it should not leave any traces behind. If Cousin Qingwu is really worried about her, you can go visit her yourself.” Why come here and listen to her?
Su Qingwu opened his mouth and wanted to speak, but he then saw the Eldest Madam walking over, her face filled with an anxious look. “Qingwu, why are you here? Why aren’t you accompanying the Sixth Princess?”
“Mother, the Sixth Princess has been taken care of.”
“However, the Sixth Princess was quite frightened. Since you weren’t by her side, her entire body started to tremble. She was expressly afraid, so it would be best for you to go over and guard her.” After the Eldest Madam finished speaking, she glared fiercely at Mu Yunyao. This s.l.u.t had harmed Su Yuyi, so she definitely couldn’t let her ruin Qingwu’s future.
Mu Yunyao couldn’t help but sneer, “Since Eldest Aunt and Cousin have something to talk about, then I’ll get on the carriage first.” Then, she held Jin Lan’s hand and walked up.
The Eldest Madam glanced at Su Qingwu warningly. “Qingwu, go and do what you have to do.”
“Mother, Zhang Wan is seriously injured. According to etiquette, you should go to visit her.”
The Eldest Madam’s face stiffened. She paused for a moment before nodding her head. “I understand. Your father and I will naturally take care of the matter regarding Zhang Wan. You just have to concentrate on taking care of the Sixth Princess.”
Su Qingwu took a deep breath as a look of struggle flashed in his eyes. In the end, he chose to endure. After bowing to the Eldest Madam, he then walked towards the direction of the Sixth Princess’ carriage.
Mu Yunyao watched Su Qingwu leave through the gap of the carriage’s curtain, her smile becoming more and more mocking, “The eldest son of the aristocratic family, which attracted countless women to sought after. His appearance is bright and beautiful, but in reality, he is just a chess piece to the Eldest Madam’ to achieve her ambitions. He can only be manipulated and managed by her. It is really sad to the extreme.
Perhaps it was because the Sixth Princess was injured and couldn’t suffer any b.u.mps, so the speed of her return was quite slow. When she finally managed to enter the city, it was already the middle of the night.
Mu Yunyao rubbed her forehead sleepily and yawned. She hadn’t slept well last night, and after b.u.mping around in the carriage for so long today, she really couldn’t take it anymore. However, thinking about how she could see her mother once she got home, she felt worth it.
The door of the Su family’s residence was opened, and Second Madam and her entourage were waiting at the entrance. When she saw Su Wenyuan and the Eldest Madam, she quickly went welcome them with anxious expressions on their faces. “Eldest Brother, Eldest Sister-in-law has finally returned. Yuyi is stubborn. Since all of you left, she have been playing a temper and refused to drink her medicine, which has implicated the wound on her arm. At the moment, she is burning so badly. Even Mother is worried and suffering, and she was letting Mother Wen is watch over Yuyi. Therefore, you guys should quickly go in and take a look.”
“What?” Hearing that her precious daughter was seriously ill, the Eldest Madame quickly walked towards the East Courtyard.
“I’ll have to trouble Second Sister-in-law to take care of the residence.”
“Eldest Brother, you’re too polite. Let’s go take a look at Yuyi first.”
When Su Wenyuan left, Second Madam looked at Mu Yunyao. Although her expression didn’t change much, there was a trace of a smile in her eyes. “Yunyao, you’ve returned. How was your trip?”
“It’s not bad. I made Second Aunt worry.”
“The one who is truly worried is Sister Su Qing. She hasn’t had enough to eat these few days. Let’s you go back quickly.”
Mu Yunyao nodded. Seeing Second Madam’s expression, she knew that her mother was safe and sound. “Thank you for taking care of me, Second Aunt.”
The Second Madam patted Mu Yunyao’s hands, “What are you saying? Isn’t it only right to take care of each other?” Since Mu Yunyao helped her treat Su You, she naturally had to take care of Su Qing.
Mu Yunyao smiled faintly and bowed to Second Madam Gu before walking towards Jiyue Pavilion.
Su Qing was already waiting at the entrance of Jiyue Pavilion. Upon seeing Mu Yunyao come back, she quickly sized her up, “Yao’er has lost weight. I’m sure she didn’t eat well in the hunting grounds.”
Mu Yunyao immediately stepped forward and wrapped her arms around Su Qing’s arm. With a coquettish tone, she said, “That’s right. It’s windy and sunny outside. Since I can’t eat mother’s food, I’ll naturally become skinnier. I won’t dare to leave so easily in the future.”
Su Qing brought her inside and said lovingly, “I cooked you an Eight Treasures Rice, which is what you love to eat. Quickly eat some, then go wash up and rest.” “Alright.” Returning to her mother’s side, Mu Yunyao felt as if her breathing was even better than that outside. She ate half a bowl of rice in a cheerful mood.
