The Miracle Doctor’s Two-Faced Toddler - Chapter 587
587 Meeting Asura Again
The Emperor was the Emperor, so it was not up to others to tell him what to do. Therefore, although he was very puzzled as to why the Emperor was here, Helian Beiming still did not ask a word and left with his family in a carriage.
The three little black eggs were taken away by the Helian family.
The Emperor’s heart was empty. The warmth of the little fellows and the faint milky fragrance were still lingering in the crook of his arm. Just thinking about that soft and fat little ball could melt one’s heart.
Eunuch Wang and coachman were also a little depressed. They had not carried enough cute children.
“Your Majesty, are we still going to the house now?” Eunuch Wang asked.
The Emperor was no longer in the mood to avoid the world. He paused and said, “Let’s go back to the palace.”
The group boarded the carriage and returned to the palace.
The Empress and the Emperor had been husband and wife for many years, so how could she not know what he was up to? There was no sign of him the moment the court went off session. He had probably found a quiet place to hide. He wanted to wait for her to fall asleep before returning to the palace. This way, he would not be in a dilemma.
It was not that such a thing had never happened in the past. The moment the Emperor left the palace, the Empress knew that he was unwilling to accept her plea. The next day, she tactfully did not mention it to him again. However, this time, it was a serious matter.
No matter if he returned tomorrow, the day after, or even ten days or half a month later, she had to plead for mercy for her daughter.
“Your Highness, His Majesty has returned to the palace,” the female envoy reported.
The Empress looked at the sky that was not completely dark and muttered, “Now?” Didn’t he only return to the palace after she fell asleep? Wasn’t this too early…
Eunuch Wang lifted the curtain. The Emperor walked in with his usual expression. The Empress waved her hand to let the female envoys leave. She personally walked forward and changed his clothes. “I heard that Your Majesty has left the palace.”
The Emperor did not deny it. “I can’t hide anything from you.”
The Empress took off his heavy outer robe for him and changed into a light casual outfit. “After being husband and wife for so many years, I should be able to guess what you’re thinking. I heard about Yan’er and the Prince Consort. You’re afraid that I’ll plead for them, right?”
The Emperor sat down in a chair and let out a long sigh.
The Empress took off his hairpin for him. “The two of them have gone overboard. If the Prince Consort really likes Yan’er, he should have come to her door openly and asked to marry her. He shouldn’t have worried that we wouldn’t agree, so he decided to marry her privately first. Little do you know that there’s no such thing as an airtight wall in the world. No matter how well you hide the secret, it will be revealed to the world one day.”
After the hairpin was removed, the Emperor’s hair fell down. He felt his scalp lighten.
The Empress continued, “If I had known earlier that the Prince Consort had a family, I wouldn’t have let the two of them be together even if I broke Yan’er’s legs.”
The Emperor agreed. There was no need for the daughter of the Nangong family to snatch a married man.
“Xi’er can’t do this in the future,” the Emperor said.
Although Nangong Xi is an adopted child, since she’s in the genealogy of the royal family, she was a veritable princess of Nanzhao. Her words and actions represented the dignity of the Nanzhao royal family. She could not do her mother’s matter again, he could not allow anything to go wrong.
“I know what to do with Xi’er’s marriage.” The Empress found a comb to comb the Emperor’s hair. This was the most relaxing time of day for him, and it was also the easiest for him to agree to her request.
As the Empress gently combed his hair, she said gently, “You can make any decision about the Prince Consort. Whether you hide it and not let them be criticized by the world or announce the truth to the public, I have no objections. However… Yan’er is my flesh and blood. Don’t really abandon her.”
The Emperor pressed down on her hand that was combing his hair and turned to look at her. “When did I say such a thing?”
The Empress curled her lips and said, “You didn’t say, but you’re already disappointed in her.”
The Emperor sighed again. “Shouldn’t I be disappointed in her for doing such a shameless thing? Whether I’m her father or her Emperor, I can’t continue to dote on her.”
The Empress paused. “Then what are you going to do?”
The Emperor said, “Let’s investigate the truth first.”
“Do it impartially.”
The Empress did not expect that she had not pleaded for mercy for so long. The moment she opened her mouth, he said, “Do it impartially.”
It seemed that the Emperor was determined to do it fairly. The Empress looked at the Emperor strangely. With her understanding of her husband, he would not refuse so readily. Did something happen just now that changed his state of mind?
There did not seem to be any substantial changes, at least, the Emperor could not say. However, the Emperor had an additional determination. He did not understand where this determination came from.
Of course, if the Empress continued to plead for mercy, the Emperor would ultimately be soft-hearted.
However, the Empress did not do so. All these years, she had spoiled her daughter. It was fine for her to only be the Princess with such a personality, but she could not become the Emperor of Nanzhao.
This time, they would treat it as a lesson. Besides, the Emperor had said that he would not abandon Yan’er.
The Empress could make such a decision because she believed that the Prince Consort and the Queen liked each other. The Queen was only in the wrong, but she was not guilty. However, Nangong Li understood how his father was kept by his mother’s side.

Once the truth was revealed, what awaited his mother would not be an ordinary punishment. It was very likely a disaster.
“Your Highness, Your Highness, Your Highness!” Imperial Physician Bai called Nangong Li a few times.
Nangong Li came back to his senses. He looked at him and then at the unconscious Queen on the bed. “How are my mother’s injuries?”
Imperial Physician Bai said, “The medicine has been applied and the wound has been bandaged. It’s just that… she has to take the medicine and recuperate. She can’t be injured again.”
Nangong Li nodded. “Imperial Physician Bai, please keep this matter tight.”
Imperial Physician Bai said respectfully, “I will not hesitate to die for the Queen Manor.”
“You can leave,” Nangong Li said.
“Yes.” Imperial Physician Bai left with the first aid kit.
The Queen was seriously injured. Imperial Physician Bai had been a doctor for so many years, but he had never seen anyone so disfigured. She was not dead, but to say that she was alive was really worse than death.
Sigh, what a miserable woman!
Nangong Li came to the bed and looked at the Queen who was almost wrapped in a mummy. His eyebrows twitched and he said with heartache, “Mother, can you hear me?”
The Queen slowly opened her eyes. Her face was completely covered, revealing only her eyes, two nostrils, and a mouth that was as swollen as a sausage. Her lips moved.
“Mother, what did you say?” Nangong Li couldn’t hear her clearly.
The Queen’s mouth moved with difficulty again. Nangong Li stood up and put his ear over. Finally, he heard his mother’s weak voice. His mother was saying, “Prince Consort…”
She was already so injured, but she was still thinking about his father. Nangong Li said sadly, “Father is fine. I’ve asked someone to check. No one in the prison will make things difficult for him. I’ll get Imperial Physician Bai to go to the prison later to take Father’s pulse. In short, don’t worry about Father. Leave it to me.”
The Queen wanted to nod, but the bandage was too tight and she could not move. She could only blink.
Nangong Li continued, “Mother, who injured you like this?”
The Queen slowly opened her mouth. Nangong Li listened attentively. The Queen said, “Eldest… Princess…”
“The Eldest Princess?” Nangong Li was stunned. “You met her just now? She injured you like this? Why… Why did she hurt you? Did she recognize you?”
When the Queen was still the Princess, she had once gone to the Ghost Clan. Although they were sisters in name, she looked down on that sister and did not meet her. She only secretly watched.
The Queen thought that the Eldest Princess had never seen her before. However, judging from the Eldest Princess’s ruthlessness, not only did the Queen look at the Eldest Princess, but the Eldest Princess also looked at her.
Nangong Li never expected that the culprit would be the Eldest Princess. The Emperor was also present. Had he seen the Eldest Princess? Had he recognized her? Was he going to start accepting his exiled daughter?
Nangong Li had an ominous feeling. If the Queen could not inherit the throne, then he could not become the Crown Prince.
The Eldest Princess’s appearance not only hindered his mother’s great career, but also his.
Nangong Li narrowed his eyes and sent someone to the palace. On the surface, it was to deliver the snacks made by the chef in the manor to the Empress, but in reality, he was asking about the movements of the Emperor and Consort Yun. If the Emperor knew that the Eldest Princess had come to Nanzhao, he would definitely run to question Consort Yun immediately and see if Consort Yun had done anything.
But the Emperor did not. This meant that he had yet to recognize the Eldest Princess. The current situation was not very beneficial to the Queen Manor. At this juncture, they could not give the father and daughter a chance to reunite.
Even at the risk of being exposed, he had to get rid of the Eldest Princess!
At night, Nangong Li went to Asura’s courtyard.
Asura had not gone crazy for a few days and went out every day. It was unknown what he was doing, but in short, when he returned, he was like a child who had drunk his fill. He was in good spirits!
Nangong Li was busy with the Queen Manor and did not have the time to pay attention to Asura’s change. In short, it was a good thing for him that Asura did not cause trouble.
“Asura.” Nangong Li pushed open Asura’s door.
Asura stuffed the small milk bottle in his hand under the blanket and looked at him innocently.
Nangong Li smiled and said, “I might have to trouble you with something.”

Asura raised his eyebrows.
What is it?
“Kill someone for me?”
Nangong Li: “Eldest Princess.”
