Chapter 565: This Was Playing With Fire

She was very clear about her own condition.

She had initially thought she must have been unnecessarily worried because her self-diagnosis did not find anything strange. Besides, nothing happened after one day had passed, which was why she had completely forgotten about this.

She and His Majesty were even…

At the thought of the two of them nearly… A crimson blush appeared on her petite face. If not for her current symptoms, she would have…

She could not help but feel slightly embarrassed.

However, His Majesty looked very worried. She could not help but reach out to tug at his sleeve as she tried to comfort him. “Your Majesty, I’m fine. There’s no need for you to worry.”

Long Yang sat next to her as he pulled her into his arms. “Yes, I’m not worried. There’s no need for you to be afraid either. I will be here no matter what.”

His gaze fell upon her chin. He felt deeply responsible for this.

He knew very well that Empress Dowager Xiaojing was only benevolent on the surface and was venomous at heart, yet he allowed Weiwei to enter Tranquility Palace. If anything were to happen to her…

The look in his eyes darkened as he clenched his fist. An intensely murderous look appeared in his eyes.

He had never yearned to kill Empress Dowager Xiaojing more than he did now!

If anything happened to Weiwei, none of those people would be allowed to live!

Lu Liangwei could discern the worry in his words. She could not help sighing as she placed her palm over the back of his hand. “Your Majesty, have you forgotten something?”

“What is it?” Long Yang turned to look at her.

“You’ve probably forgotten that I’m a physician too.” With that, she checked her own pulse in front of him.

“I’m really fine. I’ve already diagnosed myself. The reason there are rashes all over me is because I have eaten something I was slightly allergic to. I’ll boil some medicine later to drink, and these symptoms will disappear soon.”

Long Yang watched her actions and finally remembered that she was a physician herself.

Zhu Yu and Chu Jiu also stopped worrying when they heard this.

Of course. The Empress was a physician. How could they have forgotten this?

If Her Highness said she was fine, she would definitely be fine.

Zhu Yu broke into a smile as she held Lu Liangwei’s hand. “Miss, you really scared me.”

“It’s entirely my fault for scaring my dear Miss Zhu Yu,” Lu Liangwei said teasingly while patting her hands.

“Alright, everything is fine here. You and Chu Jiu should relax.”

Zhu Yu and Chu Jiu finally dropped their last shred of worry. If Her Highness was able to make jokes, that meant she must be feeling perfectly fine.

They glanced at the silent Long Yang before taking their leave.

Zhao Qian had brought along two imperial physicians who were waiting outside. Even though the Empress had claimed to be fine, there was no harm in letting them take another look at her since they were already here. It would be an extra layer of guarantee for her wellbeing, so no one commented much about it.

Lu Liangwei felt slightly helpless when she noticed that Long Yang’s expression remained grim despite her stating that she was fine.

She decided to never tell him about how her mother had drugged her.

Her mother must have wanted to play a trick on His Majesty. The medicine might not be harmful, but if His Majesty found out about it, he might resent her mother.

She sighed in secret. Her mother was playing with fire.

“If you don’t believe in my medical skills, you can let Chief Physician Lin and the others diagnose me since they’re here.”

Long Yang’s brows knitted together tightly. “It’s not that I don’t believe in your medical skills, but it has always been known that doctors aren’t great at diagnosing themselves. There might be something you’ve missed.”

“Alright. Your Majesty is right.”

Lu Liangwei turned to Chief Physician Lin, who had just entered. “I hope it’s not too much trouble for you to give me a diagnosis, Chief Physician Lin.”

Chief Physician Lin and the other physician, Imperial Physician Wu, approached her together. They were about to bow when Long Yang waved their actions off. “There’s no need for etiquette. Just quickly diagnose the Empress.”

Chief Physician Lin immediately moved forward when he heard this. He said respectfully, “Please reach your hand out, Your Highness.”
