My Crown Prince Consort Is a Firecracker! - Chapter 1196 - Family Incident
Chapter 1196: Family Incident
“Qiaoqiao, there’s something else I have to tell you.” Wei Ziqin relayed with a smile, “Do you remember the day when Mom got taken away by the Qiao Clan’s main family? The person who went out with Madam Ren, the wife of the Deputy Minister of Ceremonies, was actually a young lady from the fourth branch of Madam Ren’s family whom your second uncle is seeing.”
“That young lady is 24 years old and has had a rather hard life. However, Mom sees that she really is admirable, and your second uncle is also quite satisfied with her. Mom plans to ask Madam Ren to go to the young lady’s family on our behalf to settle the engagement and discuss the marriage date. If there are no accidents, your second uncle’s marriage ceremony will probably take place before yours.”
Qiao Mu’s eyes turned as round as longan fruits. “So urgent? I’m going to have a new second aunt?”
“That young lady is already 24, so it is quite urgent. However, you don’t have to worry. Mom has seen that young lady, and she has a mild temper and good looks.” Wei Ziqin nodded with a smile before lamenting, “Your second aunt passed on early, so your second uncle has just stayed a bachelor all this time. Now that Xiao Hu has grown up and our family is getting better off, your second uncle, he…”
Just as the family were chatting happily and harmoniously, a scream suddenly came from beyond the courtyard.
“Second Master, Second Master? Eldest Young Master, what is wrong with Second Master.”
Qiao Zhongbang and the others quickly walked out the door, but what they saw almost made them faint from shock.
They saw Second Uncle Qiao hanging from his son Qiao Hu’s shoulder, half of his body beaten bloody. It looked extremely horrifying, so no wonder the servants’ voices had started shaking.
“Second Uncle.” Qiao Mu yelled as she bolted for Second Uncle Qiao.
“Sis, Sister!” Qiao Hu managed to brace himself as he dragged Second Uncle Qiao across the threshold.
When he saw Qiao Mu dashing over, he finally spewed out a mouthful of blood like a deflated balloon and collapsed, his breathing feeble. “Quick, quickly save Eldest Aunt. At, at the Zh-Zhou Family’s entrance…”
“Brother Xiao Hu, Brother Xiao Hu!” However, Qiao Mu was shocked when she took Qiao Hu’s pulse.
Someone had injured Brother Xiao Hu’s mystic meridians, while Second Uncle was in an even more tragic condition. The bones in his left arm and left leg had actually been forcibly snapped.
After her examination, Qiao Mu exuded a frosty air, as if bathed in an icy mist.
Meanwhile, Wei Ziqin was so panicked that she didn’t know where to place her hands and legs. “Second Uncle, Second Uncle, why are you all still gawking there. Quickly go to a clinic and send for a doctor!”
“No need, carry them to their rooms first and prepare clean scissors, bandages, and hot water.”
“Right, right, right. Our Qiaoqiao is a pill alchemist, our Qiaoqiao can treat them.” Wei Ziqin was a bit confused from panicking.
On the other hand, the crown prince had already ordered light-footed hidden guards to swiftly carry Qiao Zhongxing and his son back to their rooms.
“Go investigate what happened.” The crown prince instructed with a sullen face.
Huifeng promptly received his order with cupped fists before leaping over the wall with two other hidden guards to go investigate.
After closing the doors to the room, Qiao Mu flashed inside. She first fed both of them healing pills before starting to administer acupuncture on Second Uncle Qiao, whose injuries were more serious.
After an hour, Qiao Mu finished setting Second Uncle Qiao’s arms and legs in place with splints.
She also fed Qiao Hu another pill, and after she administered acupuncture to assist in his treatment, he fell into a deep slumber.
When Qiao Mu finally finished busying about, Crown Prince Mo just so happened to push open the doors and enter. Seeing that she was a bit fatigued, he quickly reached out to support her.
“Qiaoqiao, are Second Uncle and Xiao Hu alright?” Wei Ziqin inquired worriedly.
