The Captivating Crown Prince - Chapter 69 - Great Physician’s Hostility to Prince Qian
“Please, Prince Qian and Princess Lian forgive me for my humble mansion!” Shang Wuxin sat on the host seat and looked at the two people below. She was sure that it was not the decision of his father. It should be the idea of Prince Qian. What was his intention to live in her mansion? Shang Wuxin was not at ease to have such a dangerous guy in her mansion.
Sitting there in purple with black hair, Nangong Qian was very handsome. He was not in the host seat, but he had the temperament of the master of this world. With his eyebrows raised slightly on his handsome and vigorous face, he looked confident as if nothing could bother him. The bright and indifferent eyes became warmer because of Crown Prince’s recovery. His unique good looks made others shocked and deeply impressed.
“Prince Shang is joking. I love here!” Nangong Qian tasted the tea, which was really good although it was not the best. He came back to the imperial palace of Shang State yesterday, but felt something hard to let go all the time. After thinking for a long time, as well as the repeated chatter about Crown Prince from his sister, he came up with the suggestion to Emperor Shang that he wanted to live in the Mansion of Crown Prince. Emperor Shang absolutely wouldn’t reject him. Thinking that he would live here, Nangong Qian felt the life seemed to be much more interesting.
Shang Wuxin moved her fingers slightly and said to Chief Hai, “Go and clear up the eastern courtyard for Prince Qian and Princess Lian!” The eastern courtyard was not so good as the bedroom of Crown Prince, but the layout there was pretty good. Shang Wuxin’s arrangement was reasonable.
Before Chief Hai took action, Nangong Qian’s voice arose “Don’t do that! I think the courtyards beside Crown Prince’s bedroom are OK. I will choose one to live!”
He got the basic understanding of this Mansion of Crown Prince last night. Of course, he didn’t mean to pry the layout of the Mansion of Crown Prince. It was because of his position, which let him carefully observe and acquire the things everywhere he located, just for unexpected needs.
The Mansion of Crown Prince covered a wide area, and Crown Prince’s bedroom palace was the biggest and most luxurious. There were five other courtyards of different sizes around. Even though they were very simple, Nangong Qian didn’t care at all.
Nangong Lian took a look at her brother with gratitude. She thought he lived in the Mansion of Crown Prince for her and now he even chose to live close to Crown Prince. She was very clear that her brother was hard to get along with. So she didn’t expect that her brother did so because he had interests in Crown Prince. She silly thought her brother loved her so much.
Shang Wuxin nodded and agreed, “Sorry to let Prince Qian and Princess Lian wronged!” She asked Chief Hai to bring them to pick the courtyards after finishing her words.
“No need to monitor Prince Qian!” Shang Wuxin got Wuwei’s intention when looking at her “You won’t make it by your means. Just need to pay more attention to his subordinates!”
Wu Wei nodded. Wu Ju asked with some misgivings “Does this Prince Qian have no friendly intention?” There had been lots of extraordinary guys entering the Mansion of Crown Prince, but Wu Ju knew Prince Qian was special. The most special about this man was that he was the prince of Nangong State, who should have the fateful hostility towards Crown Prince.
Shang Wuxin kept silent. It was hard to guess the intention of Nangong Qian, but at least he wouldn’t be a big threat to her at this moment. What was more, here was the Mansion of Crown Prince in Shang State. It would be bad for him if Nangong Qian planned to do something. He was just the prince of Nangong State, rather than the emperor. As far as she knew, Nangong State was not so peaceful as it presented.
“It’s time to go to the imperial palace to see my eldest sister!” Shang Wuxin stood up and left her mansion with Wu Ju.
At this moment, Nangong Lian had been hanging out in the Mansion of Crown Prince. But she was not an indiscreet girl. She was just strolling in the garden or something and never got close to the confidential place such as study.
Nangong Qian walked in every courtyard of Crown Prince’s bedroom palace with the guidance of Chief Hai. He stopped to look at the one in front of him and said to Chief Hai “I will live here! The environment is good!”
Chief Hai was somewhat hesitant. Nangong Qian looked at the obviously embarrassed Chief Hai and asked discontentedly “Can’t I?” He chose to live in the Mansion of Crown Prince just because of his interests in Crown Prince. Now he even couldn’t pick the courtyard he wanted? Nangong Qian was bound to be a bit unhappy.
“This is…” Chief Hai was a little uncomfortable with the suppression of the displeasant atmosphere from Prince Qian, but he still said with a smile “I am really sorry. This one was occupied by the highly-skilled doctor just now. He had to nurse Crown Prince’s body, so we arranged this courtyard closed to Crown Prince for him! The others are also very good. Will you follow me and have a look? ”
Nangong Qian thought of the highly-skilled doctor he saw last night. That was not the first time he saw him, and he had ever asked help from him with his sister’s face but refused by him. Now not only did he save Crown Prince, he even condescended to nurse Crown Prince’s body! Nangong Qian felt something to be not right.
When Chief Hai didn’t know how to solve it, Ye Yizhe in white walked out from the courtyard. The two guys looked at each other. One in white like a fallen fairy was in the courtyard and the other one in purple like a king was outside. Although with different temperament, they were neck and neck.
“Doctor Ye!” Nangong Qian said firstly. After all, they couldn’t keep standing here all the time. And he had no interests to look at each other with a man. Surely he would have some patience if it were Prince Shang.
Ye Yizhe walked out of the courtyard with white gowns, who looked nothing like the hoodlum of last night. Even the expression on his face was light. “Prince Qian!” Although he returned back, he was afraid to go to see Crown Prince due to what happened last night. Now Prince Qian also lived in the Mansion of Crown Prince, which made him a little vigilant. After all, Prince Qian was one of the best whether in terms of his appearance, position or his ability. Now he hadn’t got the heart of Crown Prince, so he couldn’t let others involve in.
Therefore, much of the time not only did women have the sensitive sixth sense, so did men. That was why Ye Yizhe resisted Nangong Qian so much.
“It’s said that Prince Qian is fond of this courtyard?” Ye Yizhe asked with calm look but a cold hum inside his heart. This was the nearest courtyard to Crown Prince’s bedroom. He was glad to choose it early. And with the pretext of treating Crown Prince, Crown Prince wouldn’t be hard on him.
“Will you give it to me?” Nangong Qian asked. But he had no expectation in heart, as he was quite clear that Ye Yizhe was not only a highly-skilled doctor, but also the richest man in the continent, which was seldom known by others. That was why he didn’t take any ultra-action for his rejection to help his sister that year.
Daydreaming! Ye Yizhe hated Nangong Qian much more in his heart, but still replied “I have a quiet and beautiful house in the capital city, which is much better than this one. Prince Qian can deign to live there for a while! ”
“Will you go with me?” Nangong Qian asked discontentedly. How could he not understand that the doctor tried to send him away? But why would he do so? After all, he lived in the Mansion of Crown Prince without any bad intention.
“No, I have to nurse Crown Prince’s body!” Ye Yizhe refused.
Nangong Qian was a little doubtful. It was true that Crown Prince was poisoned. Now that he had been saved by the highly-skilled doctor, why he need body conditioning? It was not right. Nangong Qian thought that Prince Shang’s poisoning was not so simple.
“If so, I will live here, too. I can have some discussion with you when available!” He walked to the other courtyard after finishing his words.
Ye Yizhe looked at Prince Qian’s back and asked Chief Hai “Where is Crown Prince?” He was wondering if Crown Prince had found the things he did last night or not. If he had already known it, how should he explain to him? He looked as usual, but with some misgivings in heart.
“Crown Prince went to the imperial palace. Do you want anything?” Chief Hai asked. This highly-skilled doctor was the one who saved Crown Prince, so Chief Hai was always kind to him, being so afraid that he would be angry and leave here. If so, what about Crown Prince’s poisoning?
Ye Yizhe shook his head and entered the courtyard, which were full of herbs even though he just had lived here for a short time. He thought Crown Prince’s condition and took some herbs with the prescription to have the servant to cook them for Crown Prince. At least he could relieve the poison in Crown Prince’s body, and then he had to research the antidote wholeheartedly for him.
At the time, Shang Wuxin in the imperial palace went to the prison that locked Shang Qinmi directly. After all, as the princess of Shang State, Shang Qinmi was not held in Dali temple but in one of the prisons in the imperial palace. Shang Wuxin came to the prison with Wu Ju unimpededly. No one dared to stop her. Now Crow Prince’s momentum was not comparable by any other princes. What was more, everybody could see Emperor Shang’s care for Crown Prince from this matter, which made them dare not to offend him.
Shang Wuxin didn’t expect to see Leng Yufeng outside the prison. He was in black brocade, with dashing eyebrows, bright eyes, straight nose, healthy tan skin and tall stature, which showed the chill and aggressiveness of a veteran fighter. He frowned when seeing Crown Prince, and showed the stateliness with the oppression automatically.
Leng Yufeng frowned not for anything else, but for Crown Prince’s carelessness on his body, he still looked very pale.
“General Leng!” Shang Wuxin nodded “Why are you here?” She had a good impression on Leng Yufeng, so she talked more with him.
Leng Yufeng said without any concealment, “Shang Qinmi was locked here. I am guarding here in case she will be grabbed by others before you come! ” Last night, he and Huan Moche were looking for the victimizer in the imperial palace without rest, and they quickly found that it was Shang Qinmi, due to their cooperation.”
Although Shang Qinmi had been put in the prison, there were so many dirty things in the imperial palace, so he asked emperor’s permission to watch here. He thought Crown Prince would come a few days later; unexpectedly, he came today.
Shang Wuxin was very satisfied with what Leng Yufeng did. She said to him “General Leng, let’s go together to have a look!” They entered the prison after finishing the talking.
