The Divine Physician's Overbearing Wife|
Chapter 2052 - The Wolf King 47
At times like this, she should pretend to be as if nothing was wrong so that she would not be suspected as the one who poisoned the prince.
“Emperor…” The empress’s eyes were filled with grief. “The people in Fourth Prince Manor all are your men. Who would poison Qing’er?”
‘All are my men…’
These few words made the emperor realize something.
‘That’s right… There’s a stranger in my son’s manor.
‘No one knew where that girl came from. Maybe she’s a spy from an enemy kingdom, deliberately relying on her beauty to get close to Qing’er…’
“Guard, arrest that woman for me! If she has poisoned him, I will not spare even one of her family!”
Murong Qing was his son. He would never allow anyone to hurt him even a bit!
Liu Qingqing was confused. She did not understand why this matter would involve that woman.
She lowered her gaze and gritted her teeth.
She had never lied before and not even had an intention of poisoning others.
However, this time, she had no choice.
If the emperor knew it was because of her, even if she did not poison him, the emperor still would not let the Liu family go.
For the Liu family’s sake, there were many things that she had no choice but to keep silent.
“Emperor…” Liu Qingqing’s eyes were filled with tears as she raised her eyes to look at the emperor. “It was my fault.”
The emperor turned to Liu Qingqing and frowned. “What do you mean by that?”
In his eyes, there was still a wave of unresolved anger.
Liu Qingqing’s face was full of misery. “Fourth Prince’s meals are all prepared by the people in Fourth Prince’s Manor, but today… I prepared soup for him, and all the servants in the manor knew about this. Fourth Prince refused to see me, so I got the servants to give it to him instead. ”
This matter, sooner or later, could not be hidden unless they killed the servants who saw her prepare the soup.
However, from childhood until now, she could not even trample an ant to death. So how could she try to kill someone?
Therefore, she could only tell the story herself first.
The emperor was even more furious. “You mean, you poisoned Qing’er?”
“I love him! How could I do that?” Liu Qingqing’s voice was tinged with tears. “But… Maiden Xia Xia came to my room today. When I came back to get the soup, I bumped into her. At first, I did not care. I thought if she wanted to harm someone, at most, it would be me. I did not even think that she would want to make a move on Fourth Prince.”
The emperor became even more furious hearing that, and he clenched his fists tightly, making them crack.
The anger in his eyes was as if it could burn the world down.
“In any case, I caused this. If I had paid more attention, this would not have happened. Emperor, if Fourth Prince really doesn’t wake up this time, I’m willing to go with him. Even if we are not yet married, in my mind, he is already my husband in this life. I certainly will not have second thoughts.”
She passionately kowtowed several times. She looked very determined.
The empress then secretly looked at Liu Qingqing appreciatively. When she looked back at the emperor, the light in his eyes dispersed, replaced by that full of grief.
“Emperor, this matter has nothing to do with Liu Qingqing. She has also been framed by someone. Moreover, Liu Qingqing is such a good girl. I believe that this time, Qing’er can clearly see some people’s true nature and understand who is truly for him. If you punish Liu Qingqing, I’m afraid that Qing’er won’t forgive you when he wakes up.”
