At the beginning of winter, water begins to ice, the ground begins to freeze, plants and trees wither, and dormant insects hide. The sweet scented osmanthus trees in the blue wind attic are no longer fragrant, but there are layers of dead branches.
At the other end of Hou’s house is Liang’s yard. It’s getting colder and colder, but the main house is full of spring and vitality. Since Lu Niantao married to the east palace as a side imperial concubine, Liang’s family has gradually become more and more popular. Nan’an Hou even intends to give her part of the power to run the family. Together with Lu qiaosong, who is sick, he has rallied up and looked for famous doctors everywhere to cure his inhumane hidden diseases.
When Lu Wancheng heard about it, he asked Lin Qingyu, “can’t Lu qiaosong be cured?”
Lin Qingyu affirmed, “this is nature.”
“Then I’m relieved.” Lu Wancheng coughed twice and said with a smile, “Qingyu, it seems that we have nothing to do. We get together to gloat and curse other people’s vicious villains.”
Lin Qingyu also smiled: “it’s good to be a vicious villain.”
As they talked, Hualu went into the room to exchange hot tea for them. Lu Wancheng saw that her eyes were red and her expression was like crying. He asked, “what’s the matter, flower dew? Who bullied you?”
Hua Lu tilted her mouth and muttered, “no one.”
Lin Qingyu said, “is it Huan Tong?”
Hua Lu is the big servant girl of Lanfeng Pavilion. Only Huan Tong dares to make her angry.
Hualu didn’t think there was anything. She was concerned by the two masters. Instead, she was wronged and choked about the course of the matter. It turned out that recently, the makeup of putting mother of pearl on women’s forehead has become popular in the capital. Hua Lu looked fresh. She didn’t stick it. She drew one for herself this morning. She worked quickly and put on makeup for herself, but her hands were clumsy. A plum blossom was painted into four different shapes by her. She was accidentally caught by Huan Tong and laughed at her, saying that she was imitating others.
“Huan Tong, do you know how to respect girls?” Lu Wancheng comforted Hua Lu. “It’s all right. I’ll scold him for you later. Your young master can scold people. He must scold his mother.”
Flower dew broke her tears into laughter.
Lin Qingyu said, “I can draw mother of flowers. I’ll draw it for you and make amends for him.”
Lu Wancheng said strangely, “aren’t only girls able to draw mother of flowers? How can you?”
“Why is this difficult?” Lin Qingyu said lightly, “flower dew, bring your dowry.”
Flower dew usually rarely makes up, and there are not many things in the dowry, but there are still some rouge commonly used by women. Lin Qingyu took a clean pen, dipped it in rouge, held the pen in one hand and rolled up his sleeve in the other, and described it in detail between the eyebrows of Hualu.
The flower dew shrouded in a piece of elegant book fragrance, raised his eyes to see the young gentleman’s cold and beautiful chin, and the whole person was tight. Even if she had only awe of the young gentleman, her heart beat faster and her face was hot. She couldn’t help thinking how many girls would be captured if the young gentleman didn’t marry into the Hou house and become a male wife.
After a while, Lin Qingyu put down his pen and said, “OK.”
Lin Qingyu painted a small group of burning flames, a few strokes, vivid and playful. Hua Lu looked at herself in the mirror and exclaimed, “young gentleman, how powerful!”
Lu Wancheng said with a smile, “the beauty of beauty can certainly brighten the dog’s eyes.”
Hua Lu blushed with shame: “who wants to show him.”
Lu Wancheng said again, “Qingyu, you can draw one for yourself?”
Lin Qingyu replied, “you’re so interested. Let me draw one for you?”
Lu Wancheng said happily, “OK.”
Lu Wancheng’s mother of flowers was not painted in the end. The servant informed that doctor Hu had come.
For Lin Qingyu, Hu Ji is the main source of information in the palace. He immediately asked doctor Hu to come in and serve hot tea.
As soon as Hu Ji saw that Lu Wancheng was not in a wheelchair, but lying on the soft collapse, he knew that his situation was not optimistic. He wisely did not ask about Lu Wancheng’s body, but only reported to Lin Qingyu the current situation in the palace, especially the situation in the east palace.
The prince took in two concubines at once, and the East Palace was very lively. One of the two side imperial concubines came from the family of literary officials, the other was a military general, and the other was gentle and lively. According to the little eunuch of the East Palace, at the beginning, the prince treated the two side imperial concubines equally on the surface, but privately preferred Lu Shi. He once stayed at Lu Shi’s place for three consecutive days. But later, after the freshness, the prince was a lot colder to the two side imperial concubines. It was routine to go and have a look occasionally.
“What did I say?” Lu Wancheng said slowly. “For the prince, what he can’t get is the best.”
Lin Qingyu frowned slightly. He thought Lu Niantao would be favored for at least half a year. He thought highly of Lu Niantao. If Xiao Cheng doesn’t stay with her often, the time of poison will be postponed.
Lu Wancheng’s body now can’t wait for that day.
Lin Qingyu said irritably, “useless fools can’t compete for favor.”
“Don’t be angry, don’t be angry,” Lu Wancheng coaxed. “Lu Niantao… Well, she’s a smart person and very strong. She’ll find a way to be favored.”
Lin Qingyu closed his eyes, calmed himself down and asked about other things. He heard that there was an epidemic in the South as soon as winter came. I don’t know what the situation is now.
“The situation is very bad. Several villages in Hongzhou are empty. Now it is an eventful autumn. There is a epidemic in the South and war in the west,” Hu Jiyue said more and more sentimental. “The emperor’s dragon body is still not good…”
Referring to the west, Lin Qingyu thought of his father who was far away in Yongliang and asked, “does doctor Hu have any news about my father?”
Hu Ji said, “the court judge has been detoxifying general Gu since he came to Yongliang. I don’t know where the thief from Xiliang found the strange poison. The court judge tried all kinds of herbs and still didn’t see the effect. General Gu is getting weaker and weaker day by day. I heard that he may not survive the new year.”
Lu Wancheng said carelessly, “then I’m going to meet general Gu under the nine springs.”
General Gu came from a poor family. He joined the army at the age of 14. He used his troops like a God and made countless achievements. He protected the western territory with his own strength. He has no father, no mother, no wife and no son. A long gun is his only family.
Lin Qingyu sneered, “God is so unfair.”
Damn people don’t die right away, but those who don’t deserve to die don’t end well.
After Hu Ji left, the relaxed atmosphere of mirror painting Huadian not long ago disappeared. Lu Wancheng looked out of the window and said to himself, “do I really want to die earlier than Xiao Cheng? Alas, I’m not reconciled.”
Lin Qingyu calmed down and said, “there will be other ways – there will be.”
Lu Wancheng smiled: “yes, I will.”
Having said that, it’s not easy for them to want Xiao Cheng to die suddenly. They can’t even enter the palace.
If he had known this, he might as well have abandoned medicine and followed the military. When Xiao Cheng calls him “xiaoqingyu”, he can directly pinch Xiao Cheng’s neck and watch the light in his eyes disappear.
Lin Qingyu gradually became restless. He lay on Lu Wancheng’s upper bunk and couldn’t sleep all night. He had to prescribe a pair of sleeping pills for himself.
How on earth can he make Lu Wancheng live longer… Longer.
This day, Lu Wancheng woke up from his nap and saw that Lin Qingyu was not there. He called out, “flower dew, help me up.”
Hua Lu put down her work and helped Lu Wancheng up. At the same time, she took a soft pillow and put it behind him: “what do you want, young master?”
Lu Wancheng slowed down for a long time and said, “there is a prescription in the second cabinet on the left. Take it to the people in the pharmacy and ask them to decoct me according to this prescription in the future.”
Hua Lu was not at ease: “who wrote this prescription? I’d better show it to Shaojun first.”
Lu Wancheng smiled: “it’s all right. This is father-in-law’s prescription.”
“It’s the court judge. That must be a good prescription.” Hua Lu Xi said, “I’ll go right away.”
Lu Wancheng stopped her: “you don’t have to tell Shaojun about it. Well… But he’s so smart that he can see it.”
I don’t know when Lin Qingyu began to personally serve Lu Wancheng’s decoction. When it was time to drink the medicine, Lin Qingyu returned to the room. Hua Lu brought the medicine. He took the medicine bowl and knew that it was not the prescription he had prescribed for Lu Wancheng.
Lin Qingyu Huoran raised his eyes.
Lu Wancheng smiled at him, “what’s the matter?”
Lin Qingyu’s fingertips almost pierced into the palm. He shook his head and said as calmly as possible, “it’s all right.”
If this is Lu Wancheng’s choice, he will respect it.
“When did you ask my father for it?” Lin Qingyu asked.
Lu Wancheng did not hide: “the day my father-in-law left Beijing, I got up very early.”
Lin Qingyu smiled faintly: “fate is like this. Are you not afraid of pain?”
“How painful can it be?” Lu Wancheng didn’t think so. “Women can stand the pain of childbirth. Should there be no pain in childbirth?”
Lin Qingyu’s chest seemed to be blocked with something. He said in a dumb voice, “didn’t you say that your life is from heaven and not from you?”
Lu Wancheng said, “ah,” then I want to see more snow and more… Before I go. ”
Lin Qingyu said nothing more, patiently fed Lu Wancheng, drank all the medicine, and then accompanied him until the effect began to rise.
Lu Wancheng’s look did not change much, but his forehead was full of green tendons. Before long, he was in a cold sweat. To Shanglin Qingyu’s eyes, he blocked his eyes with his hand and said with a trembling smile, “don’t look at it. I must be twisted and ugly now.”
Lin Qingyu took off his hand, held it in the palm and whispered, “what should I do to make you feel better.”
Lu Wancheng was distracted and thought for a while. He didn’t know whether it was true or not and said, “um… Let me take advantage of it?”
Lin Qingyu hesitated for a moment and asked, “how do you want to occupy it?”
“Don’t worry, I won’t go too far. I just want to hear you cry…”
Lin Qingyu guessed, “brother Wancheng?”
Lu Wancheng really thinks so. However, looking at Lin Qingyu’s concern, he suddenly changed his mind. He wanted to go too far.
Anyway… Anyway, Lin Qingyu will never know what he wants to express in his life.
Lu Wancheng shook his head: “it’s not called ‘brother’, it’s called — ‘husband’.”
Lin Qingyu was stunned and asked helplessly, “do you know what the word ‘husband’ means in Dayu?”
“I know, it’s the meaning of a eunuch.” Lu Wancheng wanted to talk to Lin Qingyu with his usual teasing tone, but he was so painful that he could barely show a fragmented smile. “But to tell you the truth, my lifelong dream is to be a eunuch in the palace.”
Lin Qingyu: “…” it’s certain that Lu Wancheng has been delirious with pain before he can say such nonsense.
Lu Wancheng said, “can you let me take advantage of this?”
Lin Qingyu gently wiped the cold sweat off his forehead with his sleeve and whispered, “husband.”
Lu Wancheng smiled weakly and forced himself down. He was almost groaning because of the pain. He smiled with curved eyebrows and eyes: “it’s really nice. Thank you, wife.”
