Chapter 30: Giving you a chance to escape

"Aiya..." Han Congan shook his head. "The young generals illness is actually very complicated. We can only wait a few days and see the situation then."
These words made Princess Changping angry. "Han Congan, whats wrong with you? Why are you so useless?! You couldnt cure big brother, you cant fix Qingwu gege, so what kind of miracle doctor are you? You quack, Im going to tell on you to imperial grandmother!"
This foolish princess was fixated on saving Mu Qingwu and hurting Han Yunxi, but had no idea she was the empress dowagers pawn. Han Congan held back his rage to patiently speak reason. "Princess Changping, calm your anger. Even Imperial Physician Gu cant ascertain the cause, eh...who knows how long he plans to wait for? If we delay for too long, then perhaps...perhaps..."
Han Congans words directly made Gu Beiyue a target. Before he finished speaking, Princess Changping and Mu Liuyue grew fearful. Mu Liuyue was much smarter than the princess and understood immediately. "Princess, Imperial Physician Gu and Han Yunxi tried to save him together that day. If Han Yunxis guilty, then so is Imperial Physician Gu! But fathers still letting him treat big brother!"
"Thats right! Imperial Physician Gu is an accomplice, too!" Princess Changping came to a realization, narrowly hurting her waist again. To be honest, her injury there hadnt healed yet. She rubbed her waist and cried, "Ill report him to the justice courts right now!"
Han Congan shook his head. "Esteemed princess, why dont you find some directors from the medical academy next? They can come take a look tomorrow."
The people from the academy werent ordinary folk. Cloud Realm Medical Academy was the goal of every doctor, gathering the cream of the crop from the continent. This was especially true for the directors at the academy who were over 100-years-old. They were Cloud Realm Continents medical experts!
Princess Changping and Mu Liuyue were exceptionally pleased. "Good good good! Then well wait for your good news!"
"Big brother can definitely be saved! When that happens, Ill have father chase away Imperial Physician Gu!"
"Thats great! Liuyue, lets go. We have big things to do at the justice courts!" Princess Changping was in excellent spirits, convinced that her Qingwu gege would be fine. Mu Liuyue trailed after her like a tagalong. Neither of them stopped to think that the experts of the medical academy were formidable but far from being gods. Theyd held consultations on the crown princes illness before, but he was still sick.
Seeing them leave, Han Congan put on a cold smile. There were plenty of incurable illnesses in this world. After hed suffered the consequences related to the crown princes illness, hed never risk his head again. As long as they changed Gu Beiyue with someone else, even any imperial physician would do. Wasnt it easy to keep Mu Qingwu in a never-ending coma? Wasnt it simple to make sure he died? This time, he didnt even have to get involved in the mess himself.
Han Yunxi, ah, Han Yunxi. You killed your own mother and embarrassed the Han Family before the empress dowager and the Duke of Qins household. Now its your turn to do something for the Han Familys sake.

How could Han Yunxi know the peril of her plight from prison?
Since Gu Beiyue was sending people over periodically, the North Court Official dared not torture her again after last nights scare. Yet someone unexpected showed up that afternoon. At that time, Han Yunxi was snuggled up on the bed, pinching her fingers to pass the time. Either tonight or tomorrow, Mu Qingwus poison would show itself. As long as Gu Beiyue could get the blood to her promptly, she would still be able to write a prescription to save his life, even without the ingredients on hand.

Hearing these words, Han Yunxi felt astonishednot at the empress dowagers intention, but at the fact that a mere jailer could know this much.
The agitated jailer purposely ran to the cell doors to see that no one was around before hurrying back to speak some more. "Young benefactor, consider me your servant tonight. Ive already bribed all the others here. Theres a secret passage I know of where you can follow me out. Dont just stay here and wait foolishly. Ive heard them say that when the young general dies tomorrow, theyll kill you immediately and say you committed suicide to escape punishment."
"Youre...letting me go?" Han Yunxi asked in disbelief.
"Thats right. Lets slip away while its still night out. Young benefactor, Ive already prepared the carriage for your escape, so try to run as far away as you can. Never come back here again," the jailer said sincerely.
"If I run off, wouldnt that count as a fugitive trying to dodge her crimes? How would I ever explain myself clearly in this lifetime?" Han Yunxi asked again. Apologies, but shed been an orphan since childhood. She was used to social snobbery and fickle-minded people. For her to easily believe a stranger was impossible. Moreover, if she really ran away, then shed be admitting that she was wrong. That was the greatest source of shame for a doctor. Looking at it from another perspective, she didnt believe that the empress dowager would kill off Mu Qingwu so easily.
Did this jailer really think that she was the Han Yunxi of before, who knew nothing of the world or its experiences?
"Young benefactor, you cant attend to things like guilt and crimes right now. Its more important to save your own life!" the jailer was very anxious.
"If I go, what will happen to you? Things that...implicate others, I cant do." Han Yunxi placed particular emphasis on the implicate, and the jailers gaze turned evasive in response. Yet his words were still earnest and sincere.
"Young benefactor, this old mans life isnt worth any money. Lady Tianxin saved my entire family. If I can repay her with this life of mine, then itll still be enough!" The jailers eyes were brimming with tears as he grew more agitated, but Han Yunxis words were unexpectedly cold.
"Why should I believe you?"
Ehh...?
In an instant, the old jailer was at a loss for words. "Young, young benefactor, you....this....I, I..." As if afraid of being found out, the jailer equivocated for awhile without being able to explain anything. Han Yunxis lips curved into an icy smile as certainty reached her heart.
"Elder, youre quite old and cant pull this off. Just leave." As she spoke, Han Yunxi bundled herself atop the heated-brick bed, her eyes lit brilliantly by the blazing fire. It made the jailer afraid to even look at her.
"Then...then, young benefactor, you...you take care." The jailer kept his calm with difficulty before hastily backing out. Han Yunxi watched him quietly, thinking that if she really escaped tonight, someone would probably kill her straight out of the justice courts.
Exactly who had come up with such a treacherous plot?

As soon as the jailer left the cell, two guards took him to a secret room where Princess Changping, Mu Liuyue and the North Guard Official were having a chat. Seeing him return, the princess hurriedly rose to her feet. "How is it, did she agree?"

When Princess Changping came to report Gu Beiyue, shed thought of a plot for the North Court Official as well to trick Han Yunxi into breaking out from prison. Last night shed not only failed to punish Han Yunxi but hurt her own waist, as well as gaining a rash. Princess Changping wanted to see Han Yunxi convicted right this instant!
The jailer quickly kneeled down. "Princess Changping, Qin Wangfeis too shrewd. This one...this one is useless!"
Princess Changpings hopes came crashing down as she angrily kicked him. "Worthless thing, scram!"
The North Court Official gave his guards a look, and they promptly led the jailer away. Princess Changping narrowed her eyes in a ferocious expression, and made a kill motion towards the North Court Official.
"Never!" the man instantly refused. "Esteemed princess, that absolutely cant happen. If we were able, then last night we wouldve...no matter what, she cant die here. The courts of justice cant withstand the weight of such a burden, let alone...with no input from the empress dowager."
"What are you afraid of with me here? Imperial Grandmothers long wanted her dead!" Princess Changping pouted as she spoke.
"Even so, she cant die here. Theres still the Duke of..." Before the North Court Official could finish speaking, Mu Liuyue suddenly had an inspiration.
"Princess, North Court Official, I still have a plan. Why dont you two see how it is?"
