The Emperor gave Eunuch Wei a meaningful glance, and knowing his intention, Eunuch Wei went to welcome Gu Jiao outside the Huaqing Palace.

Gu Jiao only knew that someone in Huaqing Palace was injured, but she didn't know who it was until she entered the side hall of Huaqing Palace and discovered that the injured person who needed her treatment was actually Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing.

Gu Jiao didnt ask why Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing, who was supposed to be living in the nunnery, was in the Emperor's bedchamber, but it seemed that the Renshou Palace wasnt aware of it, otherwise Eunuch Qin wouldnt have been muttering in wonder all the way to the palace.

Gu Jiao looked at the unconscious Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing.

Well, her husband only told her not to go to the nunnery to treat patients in the future, but did not say anything about not coming to the Huaqing Palace.

In other words, it was fine for her to treat the patient right now.

Gu Jiao placed her medicine chest on the table and began to examine Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing's injuries.

"What happened to her?" Gu Jiao asked.

The Emperor looked at Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing with distress and said, "Imperial concubine mother had a fall. She went to the small orchard behind the nunnery to pick fruits for Zhen and accidentally fell down the stairs."

There was a small orchard behind the nunnery, which grew seasonal fruits. Whenever there was a good harvest, Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing would pick some and have them delivered to the palace for the Emperor.

The Emperor took the initiative to explain why Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing was inside the palace, "Zhen went to visit imperial concubine mother today, but as soon as Zhen came back to the palace, he heard this bad news. Zhen was really worried, so he had people bring her to the palace to recuperate."

"She's not badly injured." Gu Jiao said.

The Emperor's eyes deepened and he said, "But Zhen is worried that she might have other accidents."

It was hard to guess what he meant exactly. Did he mean that Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing was getting old and prone to accidents, or that someone was secretly harming her and causing her accidents? No one knew.

Gu Jiao didn't ask either.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing's right elbow, left palm, right thigh, and knee were all slightly injured, and she had a slight fever, which was diagnosed to be due to the cold she contracted recently.

Gu Jiao prescribed a medicine and asked Eunuch Wei to fetch it, "One pair of medicine per day, decoct it once in the morning and once in the evening, and take it after meals. As for her injuries, just apply them with the jinchuang medicine from the Imperial Physician Bureau. But its also fine if you dont apply it." REad updated stries at n//vel/bin(.)com

Gu Jiao packed up her things and was ready to leave when the Emperor suddenly spoke up with a bitter smile, "Zhen thought he had kept it a secret."

As a result, he still overestimated his own strength and underestimated the intelligence network of Renshou Palace!

Gu Jiao paused and said, "Empress Dowager doesn't know."

"Humph." The Emperor sneered, "Would she feign illness at such a critical juncture if she doesn't know? Fortunately, imperial concubine mother Jing wasn't seriously injured. But what if she was? With such a delay, her life might have been lost!"

He had been a bit moved by the Empress Dowagers care for him that previous night, but now he realized it was just a way for her to win people over. It was impossible for her to change!

"Empress Dowager did not feign illness." Gu Jiao pointed to Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing on the bed, then said, "Empress Dowager's condition is more severe than hers. If there is really one feigning illness, why cant it be her?"

Gu Jiao wasnt questioning Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing, she was just presenting evidence to refute the Emperor.

The Emperor became stirred up at once, "How could imperial concubine mother Jing be feigning illness? She's already so injured! What you saw with your own eyes cannot be fake!"

Gu Jiao wasnt intimidated by the Emperor's anger, she looked at him firmly and stubbornly said, "I also saw what happened on Empress Dowager's side with my own eyes."

The Emperor's gaze became colder and colder.

The entire side hall was silent, and Eunuch Wei, who was waiting on the side, held his breath and dared not make a sound.

Gu Jiao was too bold. Wasn't she afraid of being punished by the Emperor for speaking to him like that?

The Emperor was indeed angered by Gu Jiao, so much so that he almost had her punished, but he still managed to hold himself back in the end.

He turned around and said with a cold voice, "You may leave. Do not appear in front of me for the next few days!"

Gu Jiao said lightly, "That's fine. I was also planning to tell Your Majesty that I won't come to Huaqing Palace anymore. If anyone in Huaqing Palace falls ill, please call another physician or an imperial physician. Don't come looking for me anymore."

The Emperor turned around abruptly and looked at her, "You!"


Gu Jiao slammed the lid of her medicine chest shut, and left without looking back.

The Emperor was so furious that his face turned green.

He watched her small figure leave and said, "Even the Crown Prince has never been so insolent in front of Zhen!"

Gu Jiao stopped in her tracks and turned around with her medicine chest in arms.

The Emperor's lips curled up slightly. Did she finally understand the might of the Emperor?

In any case, he didn't really want to punish her. If she apologized obediently, he would forgive her generously.

Gu Jiao reached out a hand.

"What?" The Emperor was taken aback.

"Treatment fee!" Gu Jiao said coldly, "Is the Emperor not intending to pay for the medical treatment?"

The Emperor almost choked on his breath, "...!!"

After receiving fifty taels of silver as a treatment fee, Gu Jiao left with an expressionless face.

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing woke up groggily. Feeling pain all over her body, she took a sharp breath.

The Emperor noticed the movement, hurried over and sat by her bed, "Imperial concubine mother!"

Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing rubbed her dazed head, "It was so noisy just now, did someone offend Your Majesty?"

Eunuch Wei looked nervously at the Emperor.

The Emperor tucked in the covers for Imperial Concubine Dowager Jing and said, "No, imperial concubine mother must have misheard. No one offended Zhen. Zhen was just discussing your condition with the physician. It was Zhens fault that the imperial concubine mother was disturbed."

Eunuch Wei relaxed a little. The Emperor still cared about the little miracle physician.
