Chapter 22: Pill for Having Children
After Duanmu Qing’s order fell, the archers of Duanmu family surrounded Jin Mo. Li Yun Qing and Shangguan Wu Ji exchanged a glance. They retreated to one side. Arrows immediately fired at Jin Mo.
This is bad……Jin Mo smiled helplessly. He is now regretting very much that he didn’t practice martial arts well. Although his martial arts are not bad, but the thing that he is good at, is the art of healing. Shifu1 said that although people need to have skills, but they also need to have the ability to protect themselves. At that time, he didn’t put those words in his heart. Today he understood those words, but it seemed that it’s a bit too late.
Now seeing this dark mass of shiny arrows in front of him, Jin Mo once again looked at Murong Qi Qi, who is looking at this play in the shadows. His heart felt bitter and obscure. Could it be that his legendary reputation will be destroyed at the hand of this little woman Murong Qi Qi? Should he really send out a signal for help? Then wouldn’t it let people laugh till they lose their teeth?!
At this time, an iron umbrella opened in front of Jin Mo.
‘Kuang kuang kuang……’
The arrows landed on the ground. Jin Mo clearly saw the people who came. Happiness immediately went into his heart.
“Ji Xiang, Ru Yi, how come it’s you guys?”
“Wang said with mister’s IQ, you will definitely not win wangfei, so he let us come to save you. Wang was right, mister really is wounded!”
Ji Xiang eyes are like crescent moon and both sides of his cheek have a little dimple. Seeing Jin Mo’s blood-red abdomen, Ji Xiang chuckled.
“She is not our wangfei yet!”
Jin Mo said it with gritted teeth, but in his heart, he couldn’t help but admire that woman who looks ordinary and weak on the outside. Her wisdom is her most powerful weapon.
“Wang said she is wangfei, then she is wangfei. Mister shouldn’t disagree!”
Ru Yi and Ji Xiang are twins of mixed sex. The two look alike. When they are laughing, their eyes are like crescent moons. The only difference is that Ru Yi doesn’t have dimples.
They grabbed Jin Mo at both sides. The three people jumped over the fence and disappeared in front of everyone.
“Chase! Chase them faster!”
Duanmu Lei is sweating profusely because of anxiousness. Jin Mo appeared in Xi Qi, then what about Feng Cang? Where is he? Could it be that he also came to Xi Qi? But isn’t the tournament of the four countries still a few months away? This year’s location is Bei Zhou, ah? Why did he come to Xi Qi? There haven’t been any signs, ah!
Duanmu Qing’s face color is also not much better. After the people went after Jin Mo, she called Murong Qi Qi alone in a room.
“Why didn’t you expose his identity before?”
Duanmu Qing looked at Murong Qi Qi sharply.
“Answering empress niangniang, the moment chennu entered, chennu has been seized by him. Chennu doesn’t know martial arts. I have no means to fight him. Besides empress niangniang is here, chennu was worried that he will do something bad to niangniang. That’s why I didn’t expose him in the room.”
It didn’t look like Murong Qi Qi was lying. Duanmu Qing recalled the scene that had happened earlier. Indeed, it seemed like Murong Qi Qi had been pulled by Jin Mo the moment she had entered. It looked like an intimate act, but after reflecting on it, it did seem strange.
“Then how did you find out that he is Jin Mo?”
Duanmu Qing is not an idiot. Although Murong Qi Qi passed this round, but in her heart she still has many questions.
“Maybe niangniang doesn’t know, according to seniority, Lian gongzi is Jin Mo’s little shidi2. That year when chennu was living at Jing Xin An, chennu passed some time with Lian gongzi. He has mentioned this shixiong to chennu. Lian gongzi is the disciple of the holy doctor. The two of them practiced under the holy doctor. It’s just that Lian gongzi became an apprentice later. At that time, Jin Mo has already mastered the medical skills for many years. So Jin Mo doesn’t know the existence of this little shidi.”
After hearing Murong Qi Qi’s explanation, Duanmu Qing seemed to understand the reason. But today’s matter made her very embarrassed. If they’ve killed Jin Mo then it’s alright, but now Jin Mo has escaped!
Although her being infertile is something that many people know, but after all, there’s no clear proof, so nobody said it in the front, they also didn’t dare. If this thing is spread out by Jin Mo, with his medical skills, people will certainly believe. By that time, it’s not so simple with only facing a ‘not able to have children’, the saliva of the women from the back palace will be able to drown her, not to mention Longze Yu who already doesn’t have any feelings for her.
Thinking till here, Duanmu Qing began to hate Murong Qi Qi. If it wasn’t because she cut Duanmu Yi Yi’s tendons, Duanmu Qing will not have forced her to find Lian gongzi and would also not have been taken advantage by Bei Zhou’s Jin Mo.
Feeling Duanmu Qing’s hatred, Murong Qi Qi quickly took out a small box and raised it with both hands.
“What is it?”
Duanmu Qing didn’t take it. She only looked coldly at Murong Qi Qi’s hands. She didn’t expect that Murong Qi Qi with such ordinary looks will have a pair of such beautiful hands. White like jade. Smooth like silk without any flaws. It’s like they have been finely carved out.
“Answering empress niangniang, this is Lian gongzi’s ‘having children’ pill.Chennu’s body is on the cool side, it’s the winter cold, so Lian gongzi aside from the Xue Fu pill also gave chennu a ‘having children’ pill.”
Winter cold? Is it not the same thing that Jin Mo said that she had? It’s very hard for people who have winter cold to get pregnant. Duanmu Qing’s mind moved. She took over the box and opened it. Inside, there’s a pill as red as blood.
“Originally, chennu wanted to save it and use it after the wedding, but……”
Murong Qi Qi’s voice choked.
“Just now Jing wang has written a letter of breaking the engagement tochennu. Chennu will no longer be able to use it, so to present the Buddha with borrowed flowers, chennu will give it to empress niangniang, hoping that empress will give birth to a crown prince soon!”To present the Buddha with borrowed flowers: to win favor using someone
“Jing wang has written a letter to break the engagement?”
Duanmu Qing has already heard of this matter, but she still showed a surprised look.
“How can he? Do you want bengong to persuade him and let him take back the letter of breaking the engagement?”
Murong Qi Qi shook her head helplessly.
“Chennu has self-knowledge. It’s chennu who is not worthy for him. The sooner the marriage is dissolved, the better it will be for both of us. Chennudoesn’t want to delay Jing wang’s future.”
Murong Qi Qi’s bleak expression fell into Duanmu Qing’s eyes. It let her hard heart have a trace of pity.
She also has heard some things about Murong Qi Qi and she also knew that just now, Longze Jing Tian wrote a blood letter in front of everyone without any mercy. It’s clear that Longze Jing Tian hadn’t set Murong Qi Qi into his eyes. In the end, she is just a pitiful person!
Thinking about her own experience, Duanmu Qing’s tone became gentle: “Good child! You don’t need to be sad. In this world, there’s always a person who will belong to you. Bengong will accept this ‘having children’ pill. If it’s really effective, bengong will heavily thank you!”
Heavily thank? Murong Qi Qi is not so stupid to really believe Duanmu Qing’s words. Her biological sister Murong Xue Lian has bad relations with Duanmu Qing in the palace. If Duanmu Qing didn’t come to harm her, that is already good!
But even if she knew it clearly in her heart, Murong Qi Qi still showed an uneasy expression.
“Taking the burden from niangniang is something that chennu should do.Niangniang saying that will make chennu embarrassed. Chennu wish thatniangniang will give birth to a crown prince for my Xi Qi as soon as possible!”
