Lu Ze didn’t let Lin Suisui watch the commotion that had attracted the attention of everyone in the refugee camp. After settling Lin Suisui back in the ox cart, he went over.
He left quickly and came back even faster. Lin Suisui had just laid out the rabbit fur blanket when she turned around and saw Lu Ze enter.
“It’s fine. Even if it’s not fine, it won’t affect us.”
Seeing Lin Suisui’s eyes suddenly widen, Lu Ze quickly comforted her gently, “We knew about it long ago. Just like you guessed, it was exposed in public.”
Seeing that Lin Suisui was relieved, Lu Ze told her everything that had happened just now. Then, he said, “Pei Qian will take over the investigation. We should be careful and wait for news.”
Lu Ze didn’t want to get involved in this matter, so the safest way was to avoid it.
Lin Suisui nodded. She shared Lu Ze’s opinion on this matter.
In the past, Pei Qian alone was already difficult to deal with. Now, there was also Du Yuanyi, who didn’t look easy to deal with either.
“By the way, do you know the person who came today?!” Lin Suisui hugged Little White as she crawled into the warm blanket. She sighed in satisfaction before asking Lu Ze about the stranger she saw today.
“You mean Du Yuanyi?! Of course I know him.” Lu Ze nodded and introduced him to Lin Suisui in a low voice. “He’s the eldest son of the Duke and the Third Prince’s most trusted cousin.
After he was born, he was personally brought up by the old Duke until he was sent to the palace to be the Third Prince’s companion. It was said that he spent less than ten days with his mother.
Compared to Pei Qian, he’s more qualified to be the future heir of a large family!
He’s levelheaded and experienced! He’s much better than his father, the current Duke!”
“That’s not right. If Du Yuanyi is really valued by the family as you said, why would he be arranged to deliver food?!” Lin Suisui turned around. Although she didn’t know much about the power struggles in the capital, she could still tell that something was wrong.
For example, this time, Du Yuanyi came to deliver ration…
“If I’m not mistaken, he probably volunteered to deliver the rations.” Lu Ze took off his outerwear and lay down beside Lin Suisui.
The interior of the ox cart was naturally much more spacious than the previous small tent, so it was more convenient for the two of them!
“You’ve seen Du Yuanruo’s incompetence.
Naturally, Pei Qian wouldn’t let go of such a good opportunity! Moreover, with what we had experienced, even if Pei Qian didn’t arrange anything, with the stark contrast between them, it was enough to suppress the Third Prince’s faction!
Therefore, Du Yuanyi probably came here to save the day.”
After a pause, Lu Ze continued, “The Third Prince takes after his mother, Consort De. He’s hot-tempered. If this escort mission ruins his reputation because of Du Yuanruo, he won’t care about brotherhood!”
Du Yuanruo was the beloved son of the Duke’s wife. If anything really happened to Du Yuanruo, the Duke’s wife probably wouldn’t be able to live.
“In that case, Du Yuanyi is actually a good brother!”
After hearing Lu Ze’s story, Lin Suisui couldn’t help but laugh.
In such a family where mutual deception was normal, it was really rare to have an elder brother who took care of his younger brother.
The two of them chatted for a while. There wasn’t any trouble the entire night. When Lin Suisui woke up, it was already dawn.
Just as Lu Ze had expected, Pei Qian was indeed difficult to deal with.
In just one night, although he had not found the real culprit who was hiding in the refugee camp, he had already deduced most of the story.
Unable to escape, Lin Suisui had no choice but to face Pei Qian, who had come looking for trouble.
“I’m just a doctor, not a coroner.” Lin Suisui sighed and looked at Pei Qian awkwardly as she tried to reason with him. “You can ask me to treat illnesses and save people, but asking me to help you investigate the murder is really overestimating me.”
Lin Suisui’s rejection was very obvious, but Pei Qian didn’t give up. He only smiled and took two steps with his hands behind his back before looking at Lin Suisui. “I know what you’re thinking. You just want to protect yourself.
However, if this matter isn’t resolved, I won’t have so many scruples!”
Seeing that Lin Suisui only lowered her head and didn’t respond, Pei Qian waited for a while before continuing, “But if Madam Liu can help, no matter what happens, I’ll be able to protect your lives!”
“What do you need me to do?!”
Lin Suisui looked up at Pei Qian, who was standing in front of her and enticing her patiently. At this point, it was impossible for her to stay out of this. Therefore, giving in was the best choice now.
“Madam Liu, your medical skills are brilliant, so you must be knowledgeable and experienced. You won’t panic or faint from fear over a mere corpse, right?!”
Pei Qian raised his hand and made an inviting gesture. “Please follow me to take a look at the corpse we found last night and see if you can discover anything.”
Lin Suisui glanced at Pei Qian, but didn’t say anything. She turned around and went to the ox cart to get a mask for herself. Then, she followed Pei Qian through the refugee camp and entered the large tent that contained the corpse.
There was no one else in the tent at this moment. Lin Suisui stopped at the door and didn’t enter.
“What’s wrong?!” Pei Qian, who had already walked to the white cloth covering the corpse, turned around and was surprised to see Lin Suisui still standing at the entrance of the tent. He smiled and beckoned to her. “Come and take a look.”
Pei Qian’s excited expression gave Lin Suisui goosebumps. She subconsciously took two steps back and looked at Pei Qian warily. “I want to find my husband!”
“Even if Gu Erlang comes, you’ll still have to come in to do the autopsy!” Pei Qian stood up straight and looked sideways at Lin Suisui with obvious menace and oppression. “You definitely won’t be able to escape today!”
“I’m not trying to escape!” Lin Suisui gritted her teeth. She was quite insistent on this point and didn’t intend to compromise at all. “If he doesn’t come, even if you force me in, I won’t say a word!”
