Chapter 455: Love Can Transcend Race and Gender
Ning Shu saw that Huo Qing’s gaze was as gentle as water, so even though it was clearly a human with a fox, there was an indescribable suggestive atmosphere.
Jesus ah, love really can transcend race and gender.
The imperial physician hastily rushed here. Before he could even salute, Huo Qing had already said, “Hurry and save our pet.”
“Understood.” The imperial physician didn’t even have a chance to catch his breath and had to hastily save the little fox.
Huo Qing watched from the side. When he saw that the imperial physician was feeling around on the little fox’s body, his expression immediately darkened and he glared at the imperial physician’s hands like he wanted to cut them off.
What strong possessiveness.
The little fox kept whimpering in pain and cried out whenever her leg injury was touched. Huo Qing repeated exhorted, “Be gentler, be more careful!”
“Understood. Understood, Your Majesty.” The imperial physician had to focus on what he was doing while responding to Huo Qing’s nagging.
Ning Shu didn’t speak and just watched while sipping on tea. She poured Huo Qing a cup of tea and said, “Your Majesty, drink some tea. It’ll be fine.”
Huo Qing was anxious from the start, but this thoughtless empress was now telling him to drink tea? How could he drink in this state?
He pushed away Ning Shu’s hand, causing the tea cup to fall to the ground and shatter. Ning Shu hastily apologized, “Your Majesty, it’s this subject wife’s wrong. Your Majesty, please don’t be angry.”
The imperial physician was still present, so Huo Qing had no choice but to take a deep breath and say, “It’s fine. We don’t blame you.”
“Wuuwuuuuwuu…” The little fox cried out in pain and looked towards Huo Qing tearfully. When Huo Qing saw the little fox’s gaze, he immediately moved a little bit away from Ning Shu, then consoled the fox. “Hu er, don’t be scared. We’re right here with you. You’ll be fine.”
Ning Shu lifted her brows, then covered her mouth with a handkerchief. She had almost burst out laughing. It felt like the little fox already thought of Huo Qing as her man.
Huo Qing kept saying to be more gentle, more gentle, so the imperial physician barely dared to move and it took a long while for him to finally get the little fox’s forelimb out from the mousetrap.
The little fox’s fur was completely soaked by blood and looked quite severely injured. It’d probably take a good while for her to recover.
The imperial physician placed the little fox on the bed and plucked off all the fur near the injury, then sprinkled some medicinal powder on it before bandaging it up. The entire process was done meticulously.
“Your Majesty, the injury had been treated. For the time being, this injury can’t touch water. This subject will change out the medicine every two days.” The imperial physician wiped at the sweat on his forehead, then cupped his fist towards Huo Qing as he said this.
Huo Qing sat down on the side of the bed, his expression tense. “You may withdraw.”
The imperial physician hastily got out of there, leaving only Ning Shu, Huo Qing, and the barely breathing little fox that was lying on the bed.
“Dangerous things like this are forbidden in the palace from now on. Look how badly Hu er got hurt,” said Huo Qing to Ning Shu coldly.
Ning Shu expressionlessly curtsied and said, “This subject wife will remember.”
Huo Qing then carefully lifted the little fox and told Ning Shu to sleep on her own today, then left with the little fox.
