Ch.193 Siskin (5)
The post-mortem examiner was startled by his words, his back strained even more. Sure enough, he was the top figure in the past, so even if he was ill and had laid low for so many years, he still had a sharp intuition. The post-mortem examiner pressed his face deeply on the ground and said: “There are no traces of outsiders. She should have fallen into the water by accident and drowned due to exhaustion.”
Xie Xuanchen nodded and did not ask any further. His expression looked extremely bad at the moment, like a paper under the light, and would break with a single poke. Mu Mingtang felt that Xie Xuanchen’s weak and sickly body was only half true, but at this moment, his face was astonishingly pale, this was real.
Mu Mingtang felt upset as she looked at the people in front of her. She knew that they for sure wouldn’t be able to get anything out of this post-mortem examiner. Therefore, Mu Mingtang didn’t want to waste more time with these people. She directly helped Xie Xuanchen up and asked, “You’ve spent a lot of energy today and had stood in the wind for such a long time, shall we go back and take a rest?”
This time Xie Xuanchen didn’t refuse any more, and nodded in response. At this time, anyone with a discerning eye could tell that Xie Xuanchen was not in good spirits, and no one dared to stop him. Xie Xuanji and Jiang Mingwei stepped aside, and bowed: “Sending off our brother and sister-in-law.”
Mu Mingtang nodded slightly and said, “It was all thanks to Prince Jin and Concubine Jin’s effort for handling the matter for us this whole afternoon. My lord is not in his best health, I would still have to accompany the prince back inside to have his medicine, so I won’t send the both of you off.”
Xie Xuanji lowered his head even more, and said, “You flatter us. The second brother’s health is much more important, we’ll leave for now.”
Mu Mingtang gave a hum, and instructed Xiang Nanchun: “Send off Prince Jin and Concubine Jin later on. The road is dark, take extra care on where they step to avoid falling.”
There was no need to expect good words from Mu Mingtang. Xie Xuanji was already used to it and still respectfully sent off Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen. After the two of them left, Xie Xuanji glanced at the post-mortem examiner, and he immediately bowed and said: “Prince Jin, don’t worry, I’m fully aware about the seriousness of this matter, I will keep my mouth shut.”
“It’s great that you understand.” Xie Xuanji gave a cold warning and brought his men back next door.
When Mu Mingtang and Xie Xuanchen got back to their room, they didn’t say a single word, as if nothing had happened that afternoon. Mu Mingtang summoned the imperial physician as usual, and after taking Xie Xuanchen’s pulse, and dismissing all the potential spies, she then took out the aromatic ball and showed it to the imperial physician.
The copper scented ball with flower and bird patterns on it that was in Mu Mingtang’s hand, looked no different from before. Mu Mingtang asked, “Imperial physician, what kind of spice is in it?”
The imperial physician took it over and gave it a sniff, and said: “To answer your question, there is agarwood incense inside, which has the effect of relieving pain and asthma.”
Mu Mingtang answered with an “oh”, “Will there be any bad side effects after breathing it in for a long time?”
“This……I have not heard of such a thing, but this kind of spice is extremely expensive. It is commonly used by the high officials, and it is also available throughout the year in the palace. I have been practicing medicine for many years, and have never heard of any uncomfortable reaction that came with agarwood incense. ”
Mu Mingtang showed a look of relief, she smiled and rewarded the imperial physician, then called the maid to come in to send the imperial physician off.
After the maid brought the imperial physician out, the room was left empty and silent. Mu Mingtang lowered her head and slowly played around with the copper scented ball with flower and bird patterns in hand.
The patterns on it were exactly the same, but this one was way too new.
Mu Mingtang raised her eyebrows slightly, and Xie Xuanchen tried to guess what was on her mind, and sure enough, he was right.
When nightfell, after Mu Mingtang washed up, she quickly put down the outermost layer to the bed net. Xie Xuanchen was originally sitting at the table as he looked at some stuff, but suddenly felt that the light was dimmed. He looked up and saw that it was Mu Mingtang behind all this, and with a faint smile: “What are you in such a hurry to do?”
Mu Mingtang glared at him and said hoarsely: “Stop with your nonsense, get on the bed so we can talk.”
