Chapter 25: Unexpectedly, the patient conditions changed

Murong Wanrus words provoked General Mu into a cold smile. "She definitely wouldnt be reckless, heheh! Someone, take Han Yunxi away!"
Han Yunxi was already willing to go with him, so there was no need for people to force her. Before she could explain, Murong Wanru pulled her back again, speaking sternly. "General Mu, even though Grand Concubine Yi and the Duke of Qin arent here, dont think you can do as you please!"
These words helpfully reminded the general that the two authorities of the estate were both gone, leaving him to do just as he wanted. He took a step forward and pulled Murong Wanru aside to snatch Han Yunxis hand. Han Yunxi violently wrenched herself free, voice harsh.
"Enough! I said Im coming along, so lets go! What are we dawdling for?"
Although surprised, General Mu was quick to recover. "Then well go!"
Before departing, Han Yunxi gave Murong Wanru a penetrating look, but the girl actually chased them all the way to the gates with her last words. "Sister-in-law, I dont know when mufei or his lordship will come back, but dont worry! Ill speak on your behalf when they do!" Hearing this, General Mu was confident that no one would be able to save Han Yunxi now!
Heheh, Han Yunxi. Youll have to take responsibility for this to the end!
Han Yunxi didnt want to hear any more of Murong Wanrus voice because it made her ears hurt. If there was a chance, the first thing shed do was to poison her and her white lotus mouth mute!

They reached the generals estate soon enough. The whole way there, Han Yunxi kept thinking, but couldnt discern where the problem came from. Even after they arrived, she was still certain that her diagnosis had been correct.
Inside the room, Mu Qingwus face was completely flushed, his lips an unnatural shade of red. Han Yunxi took one glance and knew that his fever hadnt disappeared. She sat by the bed to take his pulse, her pretty brows scrunched so seriously that no one dared approach her. By one side, Gu Beiyue stood watch, not daring to making a sound. After testing the pulse and checking the wound, Han Yunxi asked, "Has he taken the medicine according to my instructions?"
"Esteemed wangfei, even the water was boiled personally by your servant here. There were no mistakes," Gu Beiyue was very certain as he brought over the leftovers of todays decoction for Han Yunxis inspection. Han Yunxi ascertained it with a glance. Nothing was wrong, and the poison in Mu Qingwus body had indeed lessened quite a bit. Though remnants still lingered, they werent enough to affect him much. The wound wasnt inflamed either, but the fever was still there, leaving him delirious...
She lowered her eyes and checked his pulse again. There was nothing out of the ordinary, so why was this happening? For a long time she didnt speak until General Mu grew angry.
"Han Yunxi, say something!"
She honestly shook her head. "I cant be certain, but I can verify that most of the young generals poison has been dissolved. Its not because of excessive toxins..."
"I dont care how much there is, I just wake him to wake up! Right now! Immediately!" General Mu was unusually irascible today. If not for the fact that all his hopes rested on Han Yunxi, he really mightve killed her.
And yet, Han Yunxi was even more ferocious as she returned his howls. "I cant diagnose him when youre like this! You be quiet!"

"Han Yunxi, you lied to me again! It was you who poisoned my son! Youre courting death!"
Han Yunxi was completely fearless as she replied with an earnest look. "Theres no doctor whos right every single time. I can only tell you that at the very latest, the poison will show itself in three days. It definitely wont be any later than three days!"
"Peh!" General Mu didnt believe her at all.
"If you dont believe it, you can find someone else!" Han Yunxi spoke coldly. She was very clear that General Mu had only come to her because there was no one else.
"At the very least, General Mu, weve found the cause of his condition. Theres no harm in waiting one or two days more!" Gu Beiyue advised.
General Mu kept breathing heavily, but seemed to hesitate. Yet right at this moment, someone kicked open the door. Mu Liuyue stepped in with a huff.
"Han Yunxi, you get out! You lying murderer, you wont escape today!"
Here was this annoying girl again. Han Yunxi ignored her rambling, but then another fierce and tender voice suddenly spoke up. "Han Yunxi, her highness the princess commands you to come out right now. If you dare touch my Qingwu gege[1], I wont let you off easy!"
This...Princess Changping!
Mu Qingwus most unreasonable, infatuated pursuer was here? It looked like Mu Liuyue had ran off to tattle. Han Yunxi gave Gu Beiyue a worried look, her heart turning dim. This isnt good.
The hesitant General Mu immediately walked out to give a respectful salute. "This small official has seen Princess Changping before. I didnt expect to be honored by the presence of the princess, please forgive me for not coming out to meet you."
"Forget it, General Mu. You really have her highness in your eyes, huh. Qingwu geges met with such a calamity but you havent told me a peep!" Princess Changping said crossly. Under the gazes of all those present, Changping walked step by step into the room. Gu Beiyue rose to offer his respects.
"Greetings to her highness, the princess."
Princess Changping strutted past as she waved a hand to dismiss him, coming closer and closer to Han Yunxi. But she made no move and remained sitting. When Princess Changping drew nearer and saw Mu Qingwu, her haughty expression softened. But in an instant it had morphed into something sinister and ruthless as she shoved Han Yunxi. "Slut, you dared to hurt my Qingwu gege!"
Han Yunxi didnt expect this and narrowly avoided falling to the ground. She couldnt help but think, What a savage woman!
Immediately afterwards, Mu Qingwus little sister Mu Liuyue followed inside, pointing a finger at Han Yunxi. "Princess, thats the one! She tried to murder my brother with a knife that day! And she lied to my father, saying that shed cure him! But...sob...big brother still hasnt woken up!"
Princess Changping flew into a rage. "You useless trash, you dared to treat Qingwu gege? What do you take him as, your test run? Someone, take her into custody!" As soon as she spoke, two attendants from outside the room rushed in. Han Yunxi gave them an icy glare that froze the two guards in place, before speaking in a frosty tone.
"Princess Changping, the patient needs peace and quiet. If theres anything to say, please do it outside."
The princess was shocked for a bit before breaking into loud laughter. "Did you all hear what she said? Haha, a useless trash like her can even say these words! Im going to die from laughter!" So speaking, her voice turned icy. "Han Yunxi, Qingwu geges still unconscious. What right do you have to say these things? Youre the assassin, youre the culprit who tried to hurt Qingwu gege! What are the rest of you dawdling for? Take Han Yunxi to the justice courts for interrogation!"

Princess Changping must have come to find faults today! Han Yunxi abandoned all courtesy in favor of speech. "Since when has Princess Changping replaced the authority of the justice courts to apprehend others? This doesnt conform with established customs."
Princess Changping was momentarily thrown, not expected Han Yunxi to speak to her this way. It couldnt be that the rumors were true, and that this timid woman had completely changed?
"I...I...the justice courts should be honored that the princess is willing to do these things for them!" Princess Changping replied boldly.
"Then Princess Changping should know that one needs evidence to capture someone?" Han Yunxi asked again.
Princess Changping didnt hesitate at all. "Liuyue and Li Changfeng[2] have eyewitness testimony, Qingwu geges proof as well, and..."
Gu Beiyue couldnt listen any longer and hastily made to interrupt. "Princess Changping, I can vouch that the young generals on his way to recovery! Why dont you all go outside? If theres anything to say, we can wait until Qingwu wakes up."
Princess Changping narrowed her eyes. "Imperial Physician Gu, youre not allowed to interrupt the princess when shes speaking!"
