Stunning Poisonous Doctor Princess Chapter 506
Chapter 506 Bone-Piercing Pain
Lin Mengya could not withhold a groan as she gritted her teeth and braced herself.
“Should I stop so you can rest for a while before we start again?”
Zuo Qiuyu was a little worried. To a normal person, the medicine was cold to touch.
However, catalyzed by the alcohol, it immediately brought great pain to Lin Mengya.
Seeing that her little face was drained of its colors and she was breaking out in cold sweat, Zuo Qiuyu could not bear to continue applying the ointment.
“It’s alright… please continue.”
Lin Mengya braced herself and gritted her teeth. Although the ointment was supposed to work miracles, she had not felt any other sensations other than pain.
She had to bear with it. Long Tianyu was waiting for her still.
“Alright, once you feel that you’re at breaking point, let me know so I will stop anytime.”
Seeing Lin Mengya’s determination, all Zuo Qiuyu could do was continue massaging Lin Mengya’s arm slowly using his palm.
The burning sensation seemed to challenge Lin Mengya’s limit for endurance.
Nevertheless, she could still hear Long Tianyu’s cries of agony and it greatly boosted her courage.
Lin Mengya laid paralyzed on the little bed, panting hard. It would appear that she had just been dragged out of water because her body was drenched with her perspiration.
“It’s going to be over soon.”
Elder Chang had told him that once the ointment seeped into her skin, he would have completed the procedure.
The blood-red ointment gradually turned into a pink color. Finally, the patches of pink color on arm was simply the result of Zuo Qiuyu’s continuous rubbing.
The ointment had been gradually absorbed by the skin.
However, the pain Lin Mengya endured had just begun.
An even more intense pain than before started to spread from her right arm.
If not for the fact that she was looking at her right arm that appeared completely fine, she would have thought that it had been roasted and burnt at this moment.
“Mengya, hang in there! You have to hang in there!”
Looking at how Lin Mengya cried out in agony and writhing, Zuo Qiuyu felt his heart tightened.
Elder Chang had said that as the injury recovered, the pain would subside simultaneously.
However, given the extent of Lin Mengya’s injury, she would have to endure the agony of the burning sensation for at least another half a month.
“I’m able to! I certainly can! Ouch! Please gag me! Please, my dear cousin!”
The pain she was suffering had exhausted Lin Mengya’s strength, which was not much to start with.
At this moment, she was inhaling much less air than she was taking in.
Her jet-black hair stuck to her fair forehead and she actually appeared to be in a more terrible state than Long Tianyu.
“Hang in there, cousin.”
Although Zuo Qiuyu could hardly bear to gag her, he still found a piece of clean cloth and stuffed it into Lin Mengya’s mouth.
The noises from within the room had gradually quietened.
Lin Mengya certainly did not wish for Long Tianyu to hear her cries of agony.
Zuo Qiuyu clenched his teeth with a pained heart as he watched his cousin, almost fainting with pain. Long Tianyu! If Long Tianyu dared bully Lin Mengya in the future, not only him, but the entire Nation of Lintian would not let him off!
She went in and out consciousness, but the waves of the climaxes of pain coming from her right arm were so real.
She managed to maintain her last bit of consciousness because of the working of the Shen Nung system.
However, she was even unable to perform the simple task of moving her finger tips.
“Your Highness… what’s happened, Your Highness?”
Yu An, who had just breathed a sigh of relief after coming out of the room immediately saw the princess lying on the little bed, looking half-conscious and breathing weakly.
“Hush, don’t alarm anyone. You just carry out what you have to do. Do not even talk about what you see here today.”
Zuo Qiuyu sat down quietly beside Lin Mengya, guarding her. There was a mixed expression on his face.
He had always thought that this young lady was just as capable as his brother, the emperor.
Never would he expect her to go out of her mind when it came to matters of romantic love.
Looking at Lin Mengya, the scene before his eyes overlapped with his memory of his brother five years ago.
He lowered his head and gently parted the hair on Lin Mengya’s forehead.
He wished that this lass would get to enjoy a blissful outcome in the future.
Without realizing how much time had passed, Lin Mengya gradually woke up from her subconsciousness.
At this moment, she realized that she was wearing a set of dry clothes and was even lying on someone else’s bed.
After pondering over it, she supposed Zuo Qiuyu must have carried her here.
Pinching her glabella, she thought the pain she was going through was too hard to bear.
“You’re awake, Your Highness. Please let me, your servant help you wash your face.”
A gentle voice echoed through the air and when Lin Mengya looked up, what she saw was a pretty but unfamiliar face.
After she tried to recall, indeed she seemed to be one of the maidservants in the Crown Prince’s Mansion.
She supposed the maidservant must have helped her change into this new set of clothes.
She broke into a weak smile at the thought that she had been a trouble to the maidservant.
“Thank you very much.”
The maidservant, who was wringing the wash clothed froze for a second and a shy smile appeared on her face.
It seemed that she did not expect the princess to be so polite.
“I’m so blessed to be able to serve Your Highness. Oh yes, the prince asked that you go to look for him in the study once you wake up.”
The maidservant reported fervently, possibly because she had never met such a polite master as the princess.
“Hmm, alright. It must have been hard work for you.”
Lin Mengya took over the washcloth to wipe off the perspiration on her face.
She had tried moving her right arm a moment ago and realized that she still could not really move it.
Nevertheless, she could tell that there was a subtle difference, just that she was unable to describe it in concrete terms.
However, there was one thing which she was certain about.
She did not suffer the pain in vain after all.
By now, the sky was dyed red by the sunset. Surprisingly, the day had passed with all the suffering she had been through.
Back in the study, Zuo Qiuyu was giving some instructions to Yu An.
Ling Ye, on the other hand, was standing very straight at the door, like a statue.
No one could blame the other two men in the room for ignoring Ling Ye. Given his character, apart from Lin Mengya and Long Tianyu, no one else would be able to get anything out of him.
Of course, this was with the exception of the rascally Qinghu.
The moment Ling Ye saw Lin Mengya, he immediately greeted her respectfully.
On the other hand, the other two men looked astonished when they saw Lin Mengya entering the door slowly.
“He can talk. I thought he is dumb.”
Zuo Qiuyu commented sarcastically. Before this, this guy had been standing there like a lamp post.
Regardless of how he tried to speak to him politely, he acted like he could not see Zuo Qiuyu at all.
“Please don’t mind him. This is Ling Ye’s character. Oh yes, what were you all talking about?”
Once Lin Mengya came into the room, she casually found a chair to sit down.
At this moment, Ling Ye, who had been acting like a statue had naturally stationed himself behind Lin Mengya.
However, what made them more curious was Ling Ye’s face. He bore such a strong resemblance to Long Tianyu.
Could this faithful secret bodyguard be the mistake committed by the emperor of the Jin State when he was young?
“They simply resemble each other. Please keep this to yourself and not tell anyone about it too!”
When Lin Mengya scanned the faces of the two men, she knew what they were thinking when they fixed their eyes on Ling Ye’s face.
This could be counted as one of Long Tianyu’s secrets.
The two men exchanged looks as they arrived at a common understanding that they would keep quiet about this. If Lin Mengya said not to tell anyone, they would make sure no one knew.
“Oh yes, do you know that the entire Zhu Family had been exterminated?”
Finally, they had entered the main topic of conversation as Zuo Qiuyu spoke with a serious tone.
Lin Mengya nodded. Instead of giving a positive answer, she would rather say that this was what she had expected long ago.
Expecting their enemy to act against his own interest meant risking being harmed by the enemy. In this light, the Zhus probably did not expect this to happen so quickly.
“Ling Ye, did you manage to save Zhu Qiyun and the rest?”
Ling Ye, who had been keeping very quiet, opened his mouth and said with a respectful tone, saying, “Yes, I did manage to save the lives of three people, namely Zhu Qiyun, Zhu Jiajing, and Zhu Qiyun’s youngest daughter, Zhu Xiang’er.”
“I put them in the wardrobe to ensure that they witnessed clearly how the rest of their family members were murdered,” he continued.
At these words, Zuo Qiuyu and Yu An felt chills running up their spines.
To let them witness how their entire family got murdered was such a ruthless measure that could expose their ulterior motives.
“Where are they now? How are things?”
Lin Mengya questioned in a casual tone as if she did not care at all.
“They’re being kept in the hut for logs, awaiting your instructions.”
Like Lin Mengya, Ling Ye seemed totally unperturbed.
Looking at these two, Zuo Qiuyu and Yu An could not help smiling bitterly.
Although all of them were people who carried out their tasks in the teeth of the wind, Lin Mengya and Ling Ye were much more ruthless than the other two.
“There’s no hurry, keep them locked up for a day or two for now. Just make sure they don’t die.”
After Lin Mengya was done with giving instructions, Ling Ye proceeded with her instructions.
Zuo Qiuyu watched Ling Ye leave. When he had gone far, he began discussing the matter with Lin Mengya in a low voice.
“How did you manage to bring Zhu Qiyun here? Although you saved their lives, they may not even appreciate it. Think over this carefully, lest you be backbitten by them.”
Lin Mengya cast an awkward look at Zuo Qiuyu, then she smiled as if she could not care more.
“Don’t think I am trying to work with them. I’m able to make them spit out everything. Thereafter, I will throw these homeless people out.”
From the beginning to the end, Lin Mengya had never intended to just make use of Zhu Qiyun.
Zhu Qiyun and the rest were already dead to her.
By the time they stepped out of the Crown Prince’s Mansion, their destiny would have nothing to do with her.
She felt that she was better than those other people. At least she had temporarily spared the lives of Zhu Qiyun and the other two.
“In my view, wouldn’t it be better for me to make use of them, turning them around to backbite the mastermind instead? Wouldn’t your efforts be wasted by doing so?”
Zuo Qiuyu did not totally agree with Lin Mengya’s opinion to the point that he somehow sensed that Lin Mengya was somewhat different from what she was like.
“The dog that bites does not bark. As for them, they had barked louder than others. These useless people don’t even fit to be my weapon. They are merely a bunch of worthless people. Cousin Yu, I’m afraid the situation is going to change within these few days. Do be on your alert, because those people coming for us are coming with ill intent.”
