Chapter 1335: Feigning Illness (5)
Translator: DRZ Editor: Rock
Yun Luofeng was taciturn for awhile before saying, “Hong Luan, today Ling Chen came looking for you but left due to an emergency. I asked around and rumor has it that Xia Chu’s old illness had relapsed, so he hastily left. However, I checked Xia Chu’s body and her physique is so weak because she has consumed a herb called Rauzan Flower.”
“Rauzan Flower?” Hong Luan was startled. “What is this Rauzan Flower?”
“A herb that can cause symptoms of debility! That is to say, she has purposely consumed Rauzan Flower and faked her sickness to deceive Ling Chen into returning! Other than that, there’s no problem with her body. I would like to ask, when you and Ling Chen met each other back then, did Xia Chu frequently use this excuse to get him to return?”
Hong Luan turned silent and nodded her head after a long time. “Indeed, a few years ago, Ling Chen had coincidentally saved Xia Chu and both of them secretly bore feelings for each other. In addition, Xia Chu had gotten pregnant before marriage. Ling Chen originally wanted to take her in as a concubine but the governor had always opposed it and even put him under house arrest, resulting in Xia Chu having a miscarriage due to sorrow. From then on, she had symptoms of debility and because of this, Ling Chen felt guilty towards her and always believed that he had harmed her.”
After saying this, she raised her beautiful eyes and looked at Yun Luofeng with all seriousness. “Therefore, you mentioned that there’s nothing wrong with her body. Is that true?”
“I can confirm that there’s no problem with her body!”
Yun Luofeng’s words caused Hong Luan’s heart to tremble. She who was originally sympathetic towards Xia Chu had transferred her sympathy to Ling Chen.
“So it turns out, Ling Chen was a fool to have been deceived by that woman! This woman is sure scheming, knowing that after losing her child she would be unable to enter the North Governor’s Estate. She feigned sickness so that Ling Chen would feel guilt towards her.”
Yun Luofeng stroked her chin. “Hong Luan, this Rauzan Flower isn’t some mysterious herb. Were there no physicians in the governor’s estate who examined her?”
Hong Luan shook her head. “At that time, Ling Chen felt extremely guilty and wanted the Governor’s Estate’s physicians to examine and treat her. However, she rejected it with all her might, claiming that her status was lowly and she didn’t deserve for those noble physicians to examine her. In addition, if she relied on the Governor’s Estate’s influence, the governor would definitely oppose her entering the family! As such, Ling Chen felt incomparably touched, wishing he could embrace tightly the love Xia Chu had for him.”
“Now I finally know why Ling Chen did not choose you,” Yun Luofeng blinked, “because, you would never act pitiful like Xia Chu and pick words that others liked to hear. However, one day, someone who appreciates your frank personality will appear.”
It was because Hong Luan was too frank which resulted in her being in a disadvantageous situation when contesting against Xia Chu. Nonetheless, Yun Luofeng was fond of her personality and she felt very relaxed while being by her side!
“What you say is right,” Hong Luan quirked her brow and smiled. “How could it be that I, Hong Luan can’t find an outstanding man? Who does Ling Chen think he is and why do I have to feel wrong because of him? Since he’s fond of a fake woman like Xia Chu, then I shall give him my best wishes! Yun Luofeng, let’s go. There’s someone I dislike in this restaurant so let’s find another restaurant.”
A smile like a rose blossomed on Hong Luan’s face as she tightly pulled on Yun Luofeng’s hand and walked to another restaurant with quick steps.
Only after arriving at the restaurant did Yun Luofeng understand what being rich was like!
