Stunning Poisonous Doctor Princess - Chapter 594 - Stall for Time
Chapter 594 Stall for Time
Lin Mengya stared at Madam Wu fixedly with her eyes as sharp as knives.
Madam Wu thought that it was just Lin Mengya’s counterattack before she broke down.
“That’s because I was plotted against by Madam Xiao. Otherwise, how could I intended to kill my baby?”
Her explanation was so far-fetched, but it sounded plausible at the moment.
Lin Mengya suddenly sneered and looked at Madam Wu in front of her with interest.
“Plotted against by Madam Xiao? You kept saying that it was Madam Xiao who plotted against you. However, not to mention that Madam Xiao didn’t have the motive to do that, even if she really made you crazy, it should be a mother’s instinct and subconscious reaction to protect her child. Think of Madam Xiao’s reaction just now. In the crowd, she was also helpless. However, she risked her life to protect her child. Later, she mistakenly believed that her child was thrown on the ground and fainted in a moment of desperation. However, I remember that after you woke up, you showed no concern for your child. Later, you even asked me to take care of your child. I’m wondering why you are such a cruel mother if the child is really yours.”
Although the word “mother” was unfamiliar in Lin Mengya’s memory, when she saw that her mother made all kinds of plans for her and her brother’s future, she thought that the maternal love, which deepened and accumulated over the years, could not be explained clearly with only a few words.
But there was one thing that Lin Mengya was absolutely sure of.
In the situation that day, any other mother would definitely risk her life to protect her child.
Or, after waking up, she would confirm that her child was safe and sound at the first time.
After connecting what had happened before, Lin Mengya found that the flaws of Madam Wu’s explanation could no longer be concealed.
“Your Highness, you’re being irrational. Of course, I care about my child. When Doctor Gu insisted on burying my child alive, I would rather pay for my child’s life with my life. You said these only in order to get Madam Xiao off the hook. I was hurt by her and you didn’t catch the culprit at that time. Of course, I was scared, so I entrusted my child to your care. I don’t think that’s enough to prove anything.”
Since Lin Mengya had her argument, Madam Wu certainly had her excuses.
However, the current public opinion still tended to support Madam Wu.
In the current situation, no matter what Lin Mengya said, Madam Xiao was unable to clear her name.
But Lin Mengya was not anxious. Or in fact, she didn’t care about it at all.
“Oh? So that’s how it is. I misunderstood you. Since you say you are the child’s mother, so be it.”
Lin Mengya did not argue and even did not lodge the accusation that she had prepared.
She directly said that she was convinced by Madam Wu, which was unexpected to everyone.
To be honest, even Madam Wu didn’t expect that. She was stunned on the spot and looked at Lin Mengya in confusion.
It took her a long while to return to herself.
“What do you mean, Your Highness…”
“I didn’t mean anything. This child can’t talk now, so it’s hard to tell who his mother is. But there’s one thing confusing me. You said that Madam Xiao plotted against you and put you in this situation, right?”
Unexpectedly, the problem returned to the beginning.
Madam Wu nodded, but somehow had a sense of foreboding.
Lin Mengya had never been a person who easily admitted defeat, especially in such a situation.
Unexpectedly, before she could straighten out her thinking, after Lin Mengya raised her hand, a girl immediately rushed to her with tears.
“Cousin, it’s great to see that you’re all right. I’ve been worried about you and my nephew these days.”
The girl seemed to be about fifteen or sixteen years old.
Although she was a little timid, she was able to speak clearly.
Madam Wu suddenly froze, and then grabbed the girl’s hand and said with an unnatural expression.
“Oh, it’s you, cousin. Why are you here?”
The girl said after wiping her tears.
“Your husband sent someone to pick me up and asked me to come here and accompany you. By the way, cousin, what are you doing now?”
The girl stood behind Madam Wu timidly. After the excitement of meeting her cousin, the girl realized that the current situation seemed to be weird.
Therefore, she talked in an increasingly low voice.
With no idea what Lin Mengya was up to, Madam Wu subconsciously stood in front of her cousin with a hint of surprise and suspicion in her eyes.
“Nothing serious, Your Highness. She’s indeed my cousin. But I’m wondering what you want me to explain.”
Lin Mengya suddenly smiled and somehow looked relieved.
Not only Madam Wu but also those around her thought that Princess Yu was playing a juggling trick because she was at her wit’s end.
However, just as she was smiling, a figure appeared in front of her in a hurry.
“Your Highness, I’ve brought Madam Wu’s real baby here.”
The figure belonged to Long Tianyu’s personal guard, but at this moment, he was holding a baby in his infancy.
Madam Wu’s face changed, but before she said anything, her cousin, who was standing behind her, uttered a cry of surprise and then said loudly before being stopped.
“Cousin, isn’t this your son Rui’er? Why is Rui’er here?”
The words of Madam Wu’s cousin instantly made the atmosphere a little weird.
It was because everyone knew that the baby, which Madam Wu described as her baby, was still in Lin Mengya’s tent at this moment.
In this case, who was this baby?
“Aren’t you going to admit it? Don’t tell me that these two babies are both yours. If that’s the case, I’m going to have a talk with your husband.”
Lin Mengya looked at Madam Wu indifferently. In fact, what had happened just now was simply her effort to stall for time.
Since the moment she found the silver needles in Madam Xiao’s bedding, she had gotten some clues.
She found out Madam Wu’s detailed background just by asking Long Tianyu to make some simple inquiries,
Madam Wu’s husband was just a country gentleman who got the tile because of his brilliant ancestors.
Meanwhile, Madam Wu was the Miss of an eminent family in the local area.
At that time, those who went to the Wang family for marriage proposal almost wore out the doorstep of the Wang family. However, no one expected that Madam Wu, who was Miss Wang at that time, chose to marry into the Wu family, which seemed to be prosperous but was actually declining.
A romantic story between a talented man and a pretty woman was beautiful, but Lin Mengya was a realistic person.
If Long Tianyu had not mentioned that the Wu family had once served the ancestors of the Long family and an ancestor of the Wu Family had been one of the ministers to which the Long Family had entrusted their children, she probably would not have been able to figure out the key point so quickly.
“This baby… is not mine. My cousin mistook him for my baby. Please don’t take it amiss, Your Highness.”
Although things had come to this point, Madam Wu still insisted on denying it.
Lin Mengya sneered and took a step towards Madam Wu.
“I know what you’re looking for, but I’m sorry to tell you that the thing is no longer in the Wu family.”
Lin Mengya’s voice was so low that only Madam Wu heard what she said.
In an instant, Madam Wu was stunned and looked at Lin Mengya in disbelief.
“Don’t look at me like that. In fact, the Tiger Token of the Yeyu Guards has been kept in the Wu family for a long time. However, it was taken back when His Majesty ascended the throne. So it’s too late for you to look for it now.”
Lin Mengya looked at her as if looking at a joke.
It took Long Tianyu only a meal’s time to find out the ins and outs.
Because the Wu family was the trusted follower of the initial emperor, the initial emperor entrusted the Tiger Token of the Yeyu Guards, the most elite trusted troops, to the Wu family.
Of course, this secret army’s mission was just to protect the Jin State.
When the emperor ascended the throne, this army played a big role.
However, because the existence of the army was confidential, very few people knew it.
However, when Long Tianyu mentioned that the Wang family almost married off their daughter in a rush, she had figured out that what the Wang family was after must be the Tiger Token.
However, the only thing Lin Mengya was wondering was who was the one manipulating the Wang family behind the scenes. Was it the Crown Prince and the Empress, or…
“Are you telling the truth?”
Madam Wu was out of her wits, as if struck by lightning.
If it was a big blow to her that her baby she had left in a proper place just showed up in front of her, the grief of knowing that she had sacrificed her marriage in exchange for a joke was even more unbearable for her.
“Of course, other than the members of the royal family, no one else knows these secrets.”
After Lin Mengya finished her words, she pointed to Madam Wu’s nails.
“In fact, your fingers have given you away a long time ago. You spent much time practicing acupuncture so that some parts of your hands are covered with calluses. Although I don’t know why you framed Madam Xiao, the Wu family is useless to you now.”
This was what confused Lin Mengya the most. If Madam Wu married into the Wu family for the Tiger Token, could it be that she framed Madam Xiao just in order to sow discord in the camp?
This was too far-fetched. Moreover, if she hadn’t arrived in time, it was very likely that Madam Wu would have really gone mad under the influence of the silver needles.
Anyone, that was not completely out of her mind, would not do so, unless it was not her only purpose!
