After Being Kidnapped by the Crown Prince - Chapter 117
~End of chapter 116
“Don’t eat too much, less your teeth go bad.”
If she ate too much of it, her teeth would hurt again, and it would be troublesome to cure them. When Zhao Xin was a child, she also liked to eat candy and two of her teeth went bad because of it. When they were pulled out, she had cried as if it was her heart and lungs that were being pulled out. The good thing was that she was still young, thus new teeth grew again even though the previous one were pulled out.
“It’s not like I eat candy as a meal three times a day.”
“Mmh, when your teeth all fall out, don’t cry in front of me.”
“You don’t need to scare me, I won’t be scared by such words.”
Zhao Zhi couldn’t help but laugh, since he couldn’t control her, then he would pressure the servants under. He used a cold voice to command Biying, “You’re not allowed to give her anymore.”
Ming Zhu, whispering, scolded him for being stingy.
Zhao Zhi pretended not to hear.
Ming Zhu was too lazy to get up from the bed, she laid on the bed, lazily watching Zhao Zhi, who was dealing with reports next to the window.
The shrewd and deeply scheming man looked totally harmless.
When Zhao Zhi was done reading the reports and raised his head to look out the window, it was close to dusk. Yet another day had passed. He suddenly recalled what his mother had told him this morning.
The wedding date had been set, but she had not yet met the Ming family miss.
Zhao Zhi didn’t want to tell her, he no longer wanted to go on with this marriage. Except the fact that Ming Ru was “suitable”, there was nothing about her that raised his interest.
Zhao Zhi was in deep thoughts as he watched the twilight. When he came back to his senses, he turned around and looked behind him. The woman on the bed was sleeping in a crooked position, hugging the covers while sleeping soundly.
He walked up to her and removed the hairpins in her hair as well as the earrings on her ear. He walked to her dressing table with the hairpins in his hands and arranged them one by one.
In the very box where he placed the vermilion hairpin back in, the small medicine bottle he had seen last time was still there.
Zhao Zhi recalled the smell of the medicine he had smelled last time and frowned slightly. He took the medicine bottle in his hand and stared at the bottle for a long time before gently taking off the cap and taking out two small black pills.
He sniffed the black pills in his palm, and he still felt that the smell was familiar.
The dense smell of old decaying wood mixed with a faint flowery fragrance, it was refreshing but also a bit acrid.
Zhao Zhi stood, expressionlessly, in front of the copper mirror. After a long time, he finally knew the reason why this smell smelled so familiar.
It was musk.
Even if Zhao Zhi didn’t understand the science of medicine, he knew what the effects of musk were.
The man’s taut eyes vaguely started to feel painful as he stared at the pill in his hand. His fingers couldn’t help but reduce it into a fine powder.
After a while, Zhao Zhi lowered his eyelashes and closed the cap of the bottle with an unchanged expression. He had to use all his of his self-control to not smash the medicine bottle to pieces.
With a cold and white like ice face, he turned around and his indifferent gaze stopped on the sleeping woman on the bed. Her sleeping little face was red and bloated, she looked like a ripe pink peach, while her eyelashes were obediently hanging down and her little mouth was slightly open as she breathed in and out, with red lips and white teeth, she looked both beautiful and well-behaved.
Her sleeping appearance looked very good, curled up in a ball and quietly nestled in the quilt, while her pretty fingertips gently grasped the corner of the quilt, without any chaotic movement.
Zhao Zhi was reminded of how well-behaved she had become these days. He thought she had finally accepted things, but it turned out that everything was a pretense.
No wonder she was so resistant to see the doctor and looked for all kinds of excuses, no wonder she was so unwilling to let her pulse be checked, unwilling to be examined for any illness.
She was smiling at him on one hand, while deceiving him without any hesitation on the other.
Zhao Zhi left the bedroom quietly and ordered someone to call back the doctor who had been escorted out not long ago.
The doctor had just returned to the medicine shop when he was urgently put in a carriage and sent back to the crown prince’s residence, where he didn’t even have the opportunity to sit down and drink a sip of water. Him being an old man, he really couldn’t stand this kind of torment.
He wiped the cold sweat that emerged on his forehead as he looked at the icy-cold face of the man in front of him. He remained as quiet as a cidaca in winter, not daring to utter a sound.
Zhao Zhi took the small medicine bottle out of his sleeve and gently placed it on the table, “Open it and check what kind of medicine it is.”
The doctor hurriedly said yes, went forward and took the medicine bottle. He poured out its content and looked at it before lowering his nose and sniffing it carefully.
This medicine wasn’t difficult to recognize, it was not even a particularly rare medicine. It was the most common contraceptive medicine, but it was an extraordinarily vicious one, it was extremely bad for the body.
The doctor deliberated for a while before saying, “Your Highness, this medicine is used to avoid pregnancy.”
Zhao Zhi had guessed it already. His lips curled up as he let out a cold laugh.
“Even if one doesn’t want children, this medicine should never be taken.” He went on to say, “This medicine is extremely vicious, if one takes too much of it, it will probably be impossible to get pregnant for a lifetime.”
After hearing this, Zhao said nothing, but the look in his eyes turned cold like a pool of stagnant water. The day was gradually turning dark, twilight was descending. The room was dimly lit as he was sitting before the desk, with his back facing the light, it was impossible to see his expression clearly, with a hoarse voice, he said: “You can get out now.”
The doctor received some reward money and was again escorted out while he was in a daze.
The guards who were guarding outside the study suddenly heard a violent sound, like something was being smashed.
But very quickly, the study turned quiet and no sound could be heard anymore.
