Chapter 9: Chronic Poison (Part 1)

Translated by: Ai Hrist

Edited by: WonderWoman


Lin Chujiu was still lying on the bed and fighting back her urge to eat. She looked at the side of the table, only to see an old servant and little maidservants. Their eyes exhibited ridicule and pride.

Lin Chujiu slowly turned her body, swallowed her saliva, and weakly said: “You can go now, I will eat them later.”

Lin Chujiu really wanted to throw out all of the food on the table. With its aromatic flavor, wouldn’t it further stimulate her hunger?

But the old servant sullenly said: “Eldest Miss, let this old servant serve you. Your body is still weak so this old servant will help you get up first.”

Meaning: her good stepmother instructed them to look at her as she finished eating them all.

What a vicious and attentive woman. Her stepmother really wanted to kill her.

Lin Chujiu couldn’t help but admire that woman, but… …

Does she still think that she’s the original owner? That if she tried coaxing her, she would think that she really is loved. Did she really think she could just toss her aside whenever she wanted too?

“Get out of here!” Lin Chujiu angrily said. She gathered up her strength and ruthlessly threw the ancient porcelain pillow. It directly hit the old servant.

“Bang,” Lin Chujiu’s aim was quite good. The porcelain pillow hit at dead center on the old servant’s forehead. The old servant’s blood started to flow. The scene looked gruesome and violent.

“Ah!” The old servant screamed and fell to the ground. The two little maidservants behind her turned pale. They didn’t dare come forward.

“Don’t make me repeat myself. Drag that old woman on the floor and get out of here!”

Lin Chujiu hadn’t eaten for three days. Her pale face looked ugly and scary. The two little maidservants’ legs went soft, but they still dragged the old servant. They vacated immediately and left the delicious food.

Most people wouldn’t be able to stop themselves from eating the food with its aromatic flavor, but Lin Chujiu is not an ordinary person.

Lin Chujiu has very strong self-control, determination and tolerance. Those qualities were also the reasons why she excelled in her studies and career.

Lin Chujiu’s willpower is very strong and firm. She wouldn’t be easily shaken. Although Lin Chujiu is timid at ordinary times, during the crucial moments, she has a fearless spirit. Just like when she sacrificed herself to guard and protect the six NBI officers of Z country. She didn’t know them, but she cherished their lives.

*

Three days without eating, any person who was faced with delicious food on the table would want to eat them. Lin Chujiu also wanted to eat, but thinking about the harm that the food would bring her, she could only be firm.

After she sent out all of the servants, Lin Chujiu opened her quilt and sent the medicine back into the medical system. She repeatedly counted them to make sure that nothing was missing before she got out of bed.

Seeing the table full of delicious delicacies, Lin Chujiu smiled and lifted up the table without any hesitation. “Bang”, all the dishes on the table fell to the ground. Nothing was spared.

All the maidservants that were guarding her heard the sound and rushed inside. They saw the dirty appearance of the room and shouted loudly: “Eldest Miss, What are you doing?”

Lin Chujiu ignored them and stared at the food on the ground. Her eyes flashed with a touch of coldness. She didn’t want to make trouble, but some people were forcing her to do so!

When the food fell on the ground, the medical system immediately issued an alarm and showed its assessment. The food had toxic substances but it was very low and not fatal.

Because the toxic substances were very low, the medical system couldn’t detect it quickly. If the amount was large, it would have sent an immediate reminder.

Hmph, Lin Chujiu sneered. Since Madam Lin wants to play, then she will play with her.

Lin Chujiu retracted the mocking expression on her face and expressionlessly look at the two maidservants near the door: “I want to see Lin Xiang!”

“Eldest Miss, what did you say?” The little maidservant’s face suddenly changed. She seemed at loss while looking at Lin Chujiu.

Eldest Miss called the Master what?

“You didn’t hear me wrong, I said I want to see Lin Xiang!” Tomorrow is her wedding day, so what’s there to be afraid of? No family support in the future?

That’s simply a dream. Even if she doesn’t cause trouble and stayed good or obedient, the family would still be unreliable.

“Eldest Miss, Mas… Master … …” The little maidservant didn’t know what to do and could not move her feet.

Lin Chujiu had already expected that the maidservants who were guarding her were her stepmother’s servants. Lin Chujiu didn’t become worried and slowly said: “Tell this to Madam Lin, what will she do if Prince Xiao learns that his future wife was poisoned before their wedding day?”

The chronic poison inside her body could be diagnosed by the medical system and the other doctors. But, the imperial physicians are not fools so they wouldn’t dare to tell the truth easily.

“Eldest miss, what are you talking about?” The little maidservants didn’t really know. But Lin Chujiu didn’t want to make things more difficult and just said: “You don’t need to know. Just say these words to Madam Lin, I will wait for her for a quarter of an hour, if she doesn’t come to see me then she should ready herself to face the consequences.”

Lin Chujiu pulled the chair out and sat while facing the door: “Oh, and give me two bowls of rice porridge. Just use white gruel and don’t put in anything else.”
