The Divine Physician’s Overbearing Wife - Chapter 2044
Liu Qingqing looked up, a sense of comfort flashed in her eyes, but it then turned dull again.
“Fourth Prince does not like me…”
“It is a matter of marriage…” The empress said smilingly, “He has to take you as his concubine. But I will help you with this matter, so don’t worry.”
She could deal with Murong Qing through Liu Qingqing.
Therefore, how could she let a wild girl cause trouble in the manor and ruin her plan?
Liu Qingqing lowered her gaze. She clenched her fists tightly, somewhat unhappy as she thought that she still needed to rely on the empress to marry Fourth Prince.
However, she had no other choices.
Without the empress’s help, perhaps Fourth Prince would not even look at her anymore…
“Empress, but that girl…”
She pursed her lips. “The prince can’t let her go. If one day she becomes his concubine too, wouldn’t she…”
“Concubine?” The empress sneered. “She doesn’t have that qualification.”
She was afraid that that girl would bewitch Murong Qing if they let her stay in the manor. Then, it would be difficult for Liu Qingqing to get close to him, not to mention to harm him.
Therefore, she would never let that woman stay.
“Qingqing, the emperor and I will handle this matter. Don’t worry… I’ll assign you to stay in the manor.”
Liu Qingqing’s heart skipped a beat. Though her heart rejoiced, she was a bit hesitant. “But… I have not yet become his concubine. What others might say?”
“Who in the world will dare to question my decision? Moreover, I’ve promised you, and I’ll pick a date for you to get married.”
The empress smiled arrogantly.
Liu Qingqing got up, half kneeling on the ground, and respectfully said, “I’ll obey your order.”
Marrying him was her lifelong dream.
She did not care if someone would say something terrible behind her.
As long as she could become his wife, it would be enough!
“Sister Gu, send the guest away.”
The empress got up and said calmly, “Go back and get ready. I will send someone to assist you tomorrow.”
Liu Qingqing stood up from the floor and smiled as she answered.
Sister Gu bowed and led Liu Qingqing the way out.
When they walked out of the imperial garden, Sister Gu suddenly stopped and seemed like she wanted to say something but hesitated.
Liu Qingqing confusedly turned to look at Sister Gu. “Sister Gu, what’s wrong?”
“Young Lady Liu, there is something that I do not know if I can tell you.”
“Sister, please tell me.”
Facing Sister Gu, Liu Qingqing’s tone was gracious. She was the empress’s maid, and no one dared to offend her.
“I think the prince will not agree to marry you even if it were the emperor’s order. I am afraid that if Young Lady Liu still gets married to him, he will not touch you and will divorce you later.”
Hearing Sister Gu’s words, Liu Qingqing’s face suddenly reddened. “Sister Gu, this…”
“I am just telling you the truth. This is too much for such an outstanding woman like you to bear.” Sister Gu sighed and smiled bitterly.
Liu Qingqing bit her lip and fell silent.
The empress could force the prince to marry her, but could she force him to be with her?
“However…” A cold light flashed in Sister Gu’s eyes. “I have something that can help Young Lady, depending on whether you are willing to accept it or not.”
Liu Qingqing’s gloomy face suddenly brightened after hearing those words. “Sister Gu, I wonder what you are talking about?”
