Ms. Doctor Divine - Chapter 87
Chapter 87: The Sea
Hearing the words, Madame Gu laughed.
Young people always liked dreaming.
“Chaoyan, it is good that you are ambitious, but you have to get a clear understanding of yourself. You may be skilled with some medical knowledge, but families with high social statuses would not marry you as the wife just because of that point!
“You have just returned from the Lin Family, and you are pretty aware of how the Lin Family treated you. That is what business families are like, let alone official families. You think you are going to have a better future than your Second Sister?” Madame Gu said in a mocking tone, laughed and shook her head.
No wonder Chaoyan insisted on going to get the list of dowries from the Lin Family. She was trying to get herself a good family to marry.
However, the result turned out to be the same as she had assumed.
“Don’t worry. I will watch out for your marriage. We may not be able to find an excellent suitor, yet he won’t be a terrible one either.” Madame Gu promised. “Just try to think through these matters, you will understand it all. Alright, you can leave now.”
Gu Chaoyan smiled coldly.
Just because she was not as pretty as Gu Ruxue or as smart, she was going to have a worse future compared to her?
She would like to see what expression Madame Gu would have on her face the day when she married Lord Huai.
For now, she was not bothered to argue about that at all. So she went back to her residence directly.
At Qiong Pavilion.
Qing had already gotten the hot water ready.
Seeing Chaoyan coming home, she helped her with the bath and asked casually, “Miss, what did Madame Gu call you for?”
“We are going to the imperial court.”
“What?!” Qing suddenly ceased her moving hands that helped her with the blouse. “Miss, did you say yes? Let’s not go there. What if something terrible happens again!”
Gu Chaoyan looked at Qing.
She was worried, but she had no idea how to put her points forward.
“What something terrible?”
“I mean… Miss, did you forget what happened when you were little?” Qing got so anxious that she almost stomped her feet. She looked so worried. “Miss, you became the way you look after you visited the imperial court, now you are getting better….”
She knew what Qing was worried about. Gu Chaoyan patted her shoulders. “Don’t worry, nothing terrible will happen this time.”
Qing looked at her miss who seemed calm. She became calm again.
For some reason, she started to trust her own miss after she was rescued from the lake.
When Miss said that nothing would happen, she believed that nothing would happen.
Qing continued to help her with her clothes, then went outside while she was taking the bath.
Gu Chaoyan did not like it when someone watched her as she was taking a bath.
After Qing left the room. As she had always been doing, she squeezed out the magical water with her consciousness. However, what became different this time was that she saw a well in her mind, a well that had nothing inside.
In the meanwhile, she got a few more drops of water out of her fingers.
That was a change that startled Chaoyan.
It seemed as if she had gotten all the fortune she needed.
Again, Gu Chaoyan delved into her consciousness to observe the well even more carefully.
