Chapter 31 Saw through the trick
|Fuyun Bead or literally: sunrise cloud bead|
"Yes." Su Li responded obediently, swept her eyes around, and whispering softly: "Why don't I see Elder Brother?" Normally the one who cares about her the most in this house was Su Chun. Today, there was such a big rucksack and he unexpectedly could not be seen.
"Chun er has official duties, and went Zhangzhou in the afternoon." Madam Su replied coldly: "He initially wanted to bid you goodbye, but you are busy greeting Wang Ye, so there was no chance."
Su Li froze. He left? Unexpectedly left without a word? Is he unwilling to see herself interacting with Dong Fang Ze? "Then ... when will he be back?"
"Can't be certain. Maybe ten months max or as little as half a year." Madam Su raised to her feet and headed out. "You should rest."
Seeing Su mother and daughter leave, her eyes slowly cooled down. The contents of the room were quickly swept out. Mo Xiang was a little bit angry: "They're too much! They have it all moved away and kept none for Miss! Miss, Mo Xiang really doesn't understand, you don't have anything decent clothes. Those brocades were so good-looking, so why didn't you leave them aside? Madam took them and will become a young lady in the future! Miss, why do you let yourself suffer? "
Su Li smiled faintly: "Since they like it and let them take it away! I don't care much about such things." Moreover, she doesn't want or use the things that Dong Fang Zhou gave. If she can, she even wanted to gift this string of beads as well! In this Prime Minister Manor, besides Prime Minister was the Madam. Her previous performances have made the Madam very dissatisfied. She must show a little gesture, in order to live a few days in peace.
After that day, Su Qin did not come to her to seek trouble. Su Li occasionally walked out of the courtyard. The servant outside had a respectful and courteous attitude when they saw her, which was completely different from the initial indifference.
She heard many people were gossiping in secret. Prime Minister Manor's second daughter will most likely become Zhenning Wangfei or Jing'an Wangfei in the future. Mo Xiang had sounded out before. To whom does she set her heart on, Dong Fang Ze and Dong Fang Zhou?
Su Li snorted. She had no interest in these two people. In her heart, there was only one thing at the moment. How could she find an opportunity to get Physician Li to finish his unexplained words?
"Miss, it's time to take medicine."
Mo Xiang said: "Nothing else. It's Physician Li's prescription."
Su Li frowned, and asked, "Did you pass the work to others when you were decocting it?"
Mo Xiang shook her head and asked in puzzlement, "No, what's wrong, Miss?"
Su Li remained silent and did not answer. She had looked through Physician Li's recipe carefully, there was no such thing as Camellia japonica in it. So why does this medicine have such a smell?
"Mo Xiang, could I be allergic to Camellia japonica before?" A slight groan, Su Li's mind suddenly turned.
Mo Xiang was surprised: "Yes. Have you forgotten, Miss? You accidentally encountered Camellia japonica two years ago, and a lot of red rashes appeared on your body. The doctor said fortunately, it was just touching. If you eat it by mistake, you will be in trouble!" Mo Xiang prepared another glass of water and put it in front of her. Solemnly reminded: "Miss, you can't forget this. If you encounter Camellia japonica again in the future, you must stay away, don't touch it."
Su Li's eyes flickered and she laughed softly: "I didn't forget, but I'm not sure if it's Camellia japonica." After speaking, she placed the medicine down. At the corner of her eyes, she scanned the outside. She found a girl hiding in the distance and peeped to this side.
Su Li's heart sank. It seemed like it was only peaceful on the surface, but it did not mean that the heart was also peaceful. The scheme changed from open to hidden. This Su Qin, need to be taught a lesson!
"Ah, what does Miss want with that?"
Su Li said: "Don't worry about it, just bring it. Remember, don't let people see!"
She looked serious, so Mo Xiang didn't dare to ask more. Houttuynia Cordata was brought over and she took it with the medicine.
The person outside quietly left. Su Li sat calmly in the room, waiting silently for someone's arrival.
Within a quarter of an hour, Su Qin appeared. With a smile on her face, she shouted from a distance, "Sister! The weather is so good today, why don't you go out for a walk? How boring it is to stay alone in the house! I just came from the garden and saw some flowers that usually don't bloom, opened up very beautifully. Sister, come with me to enjoy the flowers. It's really not interesting to be alone! "
Her words had yet to finish when she had entered the room without asking, dragged Su Li out and walked out. The affectionate body language, as if she and Su Li have always been the most intimate sisters. Mo Xiang's eyes popped out, completely scratching her head.
Su Li was dragged away without struggling. She didn't need to think to know what Su Qin's plan was. There are many people in the garden. If she has a red rash there, afraid the rumor in the future won't be just Su Li was ugly. The false rumor of her having a contagious disease will be added! Don't mention about meeting with princes in the future, afraid she'll be locked in the side courtyard forever! Thinking of this, her heart was cold. If she didn't have a sensitive smell and was different from ordinary people, afraid that today will go according to Su Qin's plan.
The Prime Minister's Garden does have a lot of strange flowers and plants. They were full of vitality and flowers bloomed well. Su Li lifted her eyes and lightly scanned everywhere. Suddenly her sight landed on a corner of the courtyard with sparsely bloomed flowers. She saw a small plant From a wall full of vines, a green arrowhead stuck out. At its peak, red and white flowers bloomed. On the canvas of green, it was piercing to the eyes. What's more, the shape was strange.
|Mucuna Birdwoodiana Tutch|
Su Li's eyes lit up and asked in surprise: "Is this ... a Mucuna?"
Su Qin said, "What Mucuna?"
Su Li looked at her in shock. "Sister study flowers and plants and don't recognize Mucuna?" The underlining meaning was suspicion.
Su Qin immediately lowered her face. Remembering the matter of white blossom tea from the day before, she wanted to act out but desperately held back. She heard Su Li continued: "The leaves are like a fan, flowers bloom in two colors, shaped like a bird, red-crowned and white-body, hence the name Mucuna! It is an extremely rare and precious flower, mostly sought by women ... Applying it to the face can make women's skin fair and smooth, and is paired with summer grass cleansing water. It can be used internally and externally. The skin will be rosy and delicate within three days, like a newborn! "
"Where did you hear that?" Su Qin's eyes shone, but her mouth expressed doubt: "Must be nonsense? I haven't heard of it!"
Su Li smiled faintly without refuting. Instead, she just commanded to those behind her: "Mo Xiang, help me pick a bunch, I will try it."
