First she had forced Long Xiao Li from seeing and touching women. Now, although
he could see women, he could not touch women. She would keep torturing him like
that for a few more days and watch while he tries to find the medical ingredients.
However, that all became wishful thinking at Long Xiao Li, next move. To think she
would be forced to change the beautifully crafted plans she had in her heart.
Once Long Xiao Li heard what Mu Zi Ling said, he stopped in his tracks.
His good mood suddenly vanished and he glared at the imperial doctor who had just
handed him the medicine earlier.
“What do you think you’re doing by just standing here? Why aren’t you off searching
for the ingredients yet?! If you can’t find them, then you can say goodbye to your
head!” he shouted angrily, kicking the imperial doctor back by a few meters.
He grasped stomach as he crawled up in fear and said, “This old servant
understands his orders!”
“Leave!” screamed Long Xiao Li without a glance at him.
Then the imperial doctor stumbled and crawled out.
As Mu Zi Ling watched the scene unfold in front of her, she felt furious. They all
said that accompanying your husband was like accompanying a tiger. However,
to say Long Xiao Li was a tiger, would be a compliment. He was a monster without
With the current situation, the imperial doctor would still end up dead if he did not
find the ingredients. It seemed like she would have to change Long Xiao Li’s
mindset and torture him more.
Mu Zi Ling walked over quickly and stopped the imperial doctor just before he could
leave. Then calmly, she reminded, “Wait. I’ve heard that the newly opened Mu
Shan Hall in the imperial city sells a lot of medical ingredients. Imperial doctor, you
should go look there. Maybe you will be able to find the ingredients.”
Although this was probably a dangerous time, she still remembered to advertise
her own shop. She made sure to avoid saying that the Mu Shan Hall definitely had
those medicinal ingredients. Since it was Long Xiao Li, then she would have to
defraud him. If she had said that the Mu Shan Hall definitely had such rare
ingredients, then Long Xiao Li would easily be able tell that she was playing him.
Who knew what he would do after that?
When the imperial doctor heard her, he highly doubted that a newly opened medical
stall would have the uncommon ingredients, but he was still very thankful that Mu Zi
Ling bothered to recommend a store. He bowed and respectfully said, “This servant
gives thanks to the Qi Princess’s reminder. This old servant will now excuse himself.”
Whether or not they had the ingredients, he would still go and check. If he could even
find a few ingredients, he would be delighted. If it wasn’t for the Qi Princess arriving
in time today, his life would probably be nonexistent by now.
Mu Zi Ling nodded and said, “Alright, go quick.”
Today, she finally witnessed how weak the prey were compared to the strong in the
Out of all the officials in the royal court, the imperial doctors were bullied the most.
They had to work with the concubines until they were made into their scapegoats.
If they to serve a master like Long Xiao Li, then it was guaranteed that their lives
would be short and miserable.
The imperial doctor had just left, when the Empress came in. She had been waiting
outside the whole time, until the imperial doctor came and told her that Mu Zi Ling
cured Long Xiao Li’s strange illness. He also mentioned that Long Xiao Li had
already drunk a medicine that would let him see women which was why she ran
inside so fast.
“My son, can you see your mother now?”
Although she heard what the imperial doctor said, she still wasn’t sure. Only the
heavens knew how she had suffered with Long Xiao Li’s pain.
“Haha! Mother, this son is fine now. After drinking that medicine, this son is
completely fine now!” Long Xiao Li seemed to be in a good mood and was talking
He had already endured his illness for so many days. Everyday he had thought
about women, and their delicate bodies. Once his illness was fully cured, he would
bring more of them back to do the deed for a few days.
Mu ZI Ling was disgusted as she watched Long Xiao Li fantasize and imagine.
She didn’t even have to think in order to know what Long Xiao Li was thinking
about right now. He really wouldn’t change his habits even if he died.
She could not lose to Long Xiao Li now. She was afraid of bringing disaster to
more innocent people. Once the day comes that Long Xiao Li finds out about the
truth, she would be the first one that he would go for.
“If you can recover completely, then as a mother, I can finally feel relieved,” said
the Empress in relieve.
It seemed like Long Xiao Lin was only one in the Empress’s eyes. She had
completely forgotten about Mu Zi Ling.
Mu Zi Ling didn’t mind being ignored by them, but that didn’t mean that she wanted
to hear their conversation or see Long Xiao Li’s disgusting face.
She walked up to the Empress, bowed, and said, “Empress mother-in-law, the
Eldest Prince’s illness is already controlled, so this daughter-in-law will head back
However, how could the Empress let Mu Zi Ling leave so easily? Even though Mu
Zi Ling cured Long Xiao Li, the image the Empress had of her would never change.
If Mu Zi Ling was not the Qi King’s Princess, she would probably feel grateful
towards her. But it didn’t matter whether or not Long Xiao Yu treated Mu Zi Ling
well, as long as she had been the Qi Princess, even for a day, then she wouldn’t
Right now, Mu Zi Ling was very different from the usual woman. If one day, Long
Xiao Yu actually noticed Mu Zi Ling, then she would definitely become one of their
The Empress seemed to have just noticed Mu Zi Lin, and put on a gentle look as
she smiled, “Ling’er rarely visits the Royal Palace, so earlier, your mother-in-law had
already ordered the imperial kitchen to prepare a meal. This time, your mother-in-law
wants to treat you to a feast since you have cured your Eldest Imperial Brother.”
Mu Zi Ling had originally wanted refuse, but the Empress started talking again before
her, “Ling’er usually never visits the Royal Palace, so just think of this as keeping
your mother-in-law company. We can catch up a little, so Ling’er, you mustn't refuse
your mother-in-law again.”
The Empress’s words made Mu Zi Ling shiver. Why did she feel a sudden chill go
down her back? She knew that it wouldn’t be easy to get out the Royal Palace once
she was in...
