The Divine Physician’s Overbearing Wife - Chapter 2043
“Oh…” Nan Chiyou sighed in relief and smiled. “I thought you didn’t like Ah Ming. Alright, we’re going to rest. Ah Ming, come in with me.”
The young man glanced at Murong Qing’s dissatisfied face, slowly turned around, and followed Nan Chiyou in.
Looking at the little girl in front of him, the young man seemed slightly overwhelmed.
‘Was she defending me just now?’
Somehow, a feeling of warmth filled his heart, softening his gaze.
Nan Chiyou picked up a piece of blanket and threw it on the floor. She pursed her lips and said, “You will sleep on the floor. This is for you. Do not cause trouble while I am asleep. Otherwise, you will need to get out of here.”
The young man smiled faintly. “Alright.”
As long as he could stay with her, he was already satisfied…
He had been waiting for her for a long time… And waiting for another few days was not a big deal to him.
Nan Chiyou was still a little furious as she thought of how she had been cheated by a wolf these last days.
Seeing that this wolf was quite charming after turning into a human, she… She would forgive him a little.
However, if he wanted her to forgive him completely… That was impossible!
The empress was sitting in the pavilion of the imperial garden with two palace servants fanning her.
There was a faint smile on her face.
“Empress, Young Lady of the Liu family, is here.”
A servant came forward and reported.
Hearing the servant’s voice, the empress turned and saw a girl with a delicate figure approaching her from afar.
The girl looked frail and pitiful.
However, her gaze did not lack dignity as a young lady of a noble family.
The girl’s aura was a few times more dignified than that wild girl in the prince’s manor.
The empress smiled and greeted her.
She raised her hand and indicated Liu Qingqing to take a seat next to her.
Liu Qingqing was a bit flattered. She bowed, sat down, and said gently, “Empress, you summoned me. Is there something you want?”
“I just want to ask how you and Qing’er are doing. Qing’er’s temper isn’t too good. I hope you don’t take his words seriously.”
Hearing these words, Liu Qingqing’s face stiffened; she lowered her head and kept silent.
Seeing that expression on her face, the empress knew that she was bullied in the prince’s manor.
She smiled and patted Liu Qingqing’s hand. “Qingqing, tell me. Did the girl in Qing’er’s manor bully you?”
Liu Qingqing was slightly shocked and shook her head. “It has nothing to do with that girl. It was all my fault. I didn’t know there was a cat in the prince’s manor. Everyone knows that the prince is not feeling well, and he never keeps these spirit beasts in his manor. My servant saw that cat before and… She wanted to throw it away because she was afraid it might harm me.”
She lowered her head and her voice. “I didn’t mean to do so. The girl seemed to be very angry. Fourth Prince was also outraged, so he asked me to leave first. Empress, have I done something wrong? Does Fourth Prince not like me anymore?”
She had liked Murong Qing for a long time, so much that… Her dream was to marry him.
Therefore, when she saw Murong Qing treating another girl so well, she was jealous and even a little envious.
That kind of tenderness was something she had never gotten.
A cold light flashed in the empress’s eyes as she gently patted Liu Qingqing’s arm and smiled. “You do not need to worry. You will be his concubine, and I will look after you.”
