The maid servant wanted to protect her master. Now that she thought of the young lady’s symptoms, she could not help but cover her face and cry.
“Imperial Physician, can’t a person who has been harmed by this kind of poison be tested with a silver needle?” Xie Pinggang asked.
“This thing isn’t considered poison. After taking this silver ring powder, there will indeed be some symptoms, but this thing is mainly used for external application. As there are many poisonous creatures in Lingnan, it’s difficult to save anyone who has been bitten. Therefore, the locals have figured out this thing. After applying it externally, there will be a certain degree of detoxification effect. However, this thing is still relatively rare, and there are few in circulation on the market…” Imperial Physician Wei explained.
“Now that Second Young Lady Dong is dead, how can we tell if she has taken the silver ring powder?” Xie Pinggang frowned, feeling a little worried.
Imperial Physician Wei carefully stepped forward.
He reached out and lifted Second Young Lady Dong’s eyelids.
After looking carefully, he said to them, “Young Master Xie, please take a look. The white of her eyes is a little red… If you apply a warm handkerchief on them…”
Imperial Physician Wei said as he prepared. After a while, the handkerchief was placed on top of the eyes.
In less than 15 minutes, the imperial physician took the handkerchief off and saw that there were some pink-colored tears in the eyes.
“Your Highness, Master Dong, Young Master Xie, Young Lady Dong did indeed die after taking the silver ring powder. Only those who took the silver ring powder would have cherry-red tears after having their eyes covered with hot water for a long time after death,” Imperial Physician Wei said.
After the imperial physician said that, Master Dong staggered and fell onto the chair.
When Madam Dong heard that, she burst into tears.
“Master Dong, who do you think the murderer is?” Xie Pinggang looked at Master Dong coldly. He looked very scary.
He was just asking on purpose.
How could such a thing be silently consumed by the Dong family’s second young lady? Did one need to guess who the mastermind was? It must be from the Dong Family, no?!
“It must be some evil servant…” Master Dong clenched his fists and looked outside.
He met the steward’s eyes and the steward immediately walked out of the courtyard.
Not long after, the steward came with someone.
It was a granny.
The granny was pushed to the ground, and the steward immediately said, “Master, this evil granny said that she killed the Second Young Lady. She said that she was in pain and did not want to live anymore, so she bought this thing. But who knew that the Second Young Lady was going to take it as a calming medicine. She accidentally mixed up the two medicine bags, which led to the Second Young Lady’s accident…”
When Xie Qiao heard that, she was not surprised.
It was a very ordinary method. He just randomly found someone to take the blame and settle this matter as soon as possible.
“It’s actually you, the evil servant!” Dong Xiyun had already recovered. Her eyes were red as she cursed at the granny in the courtyard. She even impulsively pounced forward and gave her two aggressive kicks!
Xie Qiao looked at her, the arms that were wrapped around her were even tighter now.
This Dong Xiyun was really a drama queen.
She could even act better than she did.
The Crown Prince chuckled, “Since the sinner has already been found, then we shall leave.”
Xie Pinggang frowned. He was not prepared to give up just like that. However, he would definitely not be able to find anything today. After all, Master Dong was so protective. The sinner’s identity must be extraordinary in the Dong family.
The life of a servant could be taken as he wished. He could kill or sell them. With Master Dong’s help, unless he immediately raided the Dong family and took down everyone in the entire family, he would definitely not be able to find anything.
Even if he could find someone who was telling the truth…
However, Master Dong could also say that the evil servant had intentionally framed him…
The servant’s status was low. Even if he was accusing the master, the testimony would not be of much use..
