I’ll Be the Male Lead’s Sister-in-Law - Chapter 96
Translated by ShainaG Translations
Could it be that this was just a momentary recovery of consciousness just before his death?
The minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau didn’t dare to simply answer him. Prince Qiyang was part of the emperor’s worries. If he rashly said that it was just a momentary recovery of consciousness just before his death, but Xie Xuanchen didn’t die in a few days, the emperor would then be happy for nothing, he wouldn’t have a good ending either.
The minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau thought about it for a long time, and finally said very conservatively: “To reply to the Emperor’s question, Prince Qiyang was really badly injured this time. It is now September. If you counted the time, he has been in a coma for two years. In the past two years, he has absorbed much energy without consuming them at all. His body was already very weak, in addition to that few times he turned mad, he completely used up his Qi, which greatly damaged his base. Based on my opinion, if the Prince of Qiyang rests and recovers in peace, there is still a chance of surviving, if he goes crazy again, I’m afraid his body wouldn’t be able to take it again.”
In other words, as long as the emperor waited for Xie Xuanchen to turn manic again, Xie Xuanchen would exhaust himself to death, and the emperor would be relieved. The emperor had been worried for two years, and now he finally had a confirmed answer, he felt at ease. The emperor’s mood suddenly brightened, even if he looked at the few remaining people, he wasn’t as angry as he was just now.
The emperor’s tone improved greatly, and he asked the minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau: “In your opinion, how should we restore his body?
The minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau’s heart was pounding, it wasn’t an easy question to answer, he had to think about it carefully before speaking. The minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau ran through various possible scenarios before slowly saying: “In my opinion, let Prince Qiyang recover in peace, let him be, and don’t let him worry about foreign affairs. With a peaceful mind, he’ll recover soon. If Prince Qiyang can survive through this winter, it’ll not be an issue anymore.”
He’s indirectly implying something else and the Emperor understood what he meant. The minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau said that they should let him be, he’ll not be able to control himself when he’s gone manic. The greater his movements, the more energy he would consume. Before winter ends, he’ll be exhausted to death.
He had to wait until this winter, it was longer than what the emperor had expected. But the emperor changed his mind, it was only a few months of difference, he had already endured for two years, so what about another month or two?
The emperor nodded and said with a worried look: “The winter season would be freezing and very unbearable, and people who are weak would be hit the worst. He is the only son of the first emperor. The first emperor had entrusted the country and his only son to me on his deathbed. In the past few years, whenever I thought of this, I felt worried and uneasy, I found it hard to fall asleep at night. Leading the country could be done by greatly encouraging imperial examinations to attract talented people. However, Prince Qiyang’s illness was always like a thorn in my heart whenever I was reminded of it. The first emperor only had this last standing heir left. In my heart, he is even more precious than my own son, but the gods are jealous of his talent. He’s only nineteen years old and he’s already so seriously ill.”
The emperor spoke with tears in his eyes, and the officials beneath him started to tear up too. After a moment of exclamation, the emperor readjusted his emotions, and said solemnly: “The minister of the Imperial Medical Bureau will follow this order. From today onwards, the Imperial Medical Bureau will appoint five people, they won’t have to be responsible for teaching the students and out-of-the-city medical checks, they will just have to stay in Qiyang Manor and monitor Prince Qiyang’s health condition. You don’t need to ask for any medicine for the diagnosis and treatment of Prince Qiyang. Take whatever you need directly from the storeroom. You must take good care of Prince Qiyang at all costs.”
“I will follow this decree.”
