Zhao Li's brow furrowed.
Something wasn't quite right.
If she was not mistaken, this body's pulse was as strong as an ox, but it was clear that it had been hit by some kind of chronic poison that, although not deadly, but would affect the nerves in the brain, thus affecting intellectual capacity. And a person's vitality affects their facial appearance. When a person is intellectually deficient, even if their looks are still acceptable, they will still look weird and ugly.
Thinking of the Gu brothers' attitude towards her, Zhao Li's expression became subtle, could it be that they had caused this poison?
But on second thought, she thought it was unlikely.
If they had really done it, why would they have administered such a non-lethal drug, and the poison that had accumulated in her body could not be attained in a month or two, it would have taken a lot of time.
All sorts of thoughts flashed through Zhao Li's mind and were finally suppressed in her mind one by one.
Now the first thing she needed to do was to take care of her body and get rid of the poison, but as for who was responsible for it, she could only find out later.
As soon as Zhao Li had made her decision, a rumbling in her belly informed her that her body was hungry.
However, when she got up and left the room, she searched around but could not find the Gu brothers, only finding Chu Chen in the kitchen. He was rolling up his sleeves, carrying the thinly chopped firewood with a disgusted expression on his face, puffing out his cheeks and pondering about something.
When he saw Zhao Li, his eyes immediately lit up and he came up to him.
He put his arm around Zhao Li and said warmly, "I thought you had just gotten into the water, and even though you had changed your clothes, you must still be uncomfortable, so I thought of boiling some hot water for you to wash up."
Zhao Li twitched the corners of her mouth, thinking of the scene she had just seen, she suspected that if she were to let this Chu Chen boil water, perhaps the whole woodshed would be set on fire. Moreover, she didn't believe that Chu Chen was sincere either, only that it was more of an effort to make a favour to her.
After all, he was only a male concubine who had been redeemed, unlike the Gu brothers who could support each other, so he had to seem more affectionate than the Gu brothers' undisguised attitude.
"I'm a little hungry." She said.
Seeing that Zhao Li wasn't as easily coaxed by him as he used to be, Chu Chen squinted his eyes slightly, but his face was still full of smiles.
"There is no more grain left in the house, I made sure to talk to Brother Gu about this just now, so that when they hire a doctor for you, don't forget to buy some new grain, I can't afford to let you go hungry."
In the beginning, if Zhao Li still had goosebumps because of Chu Chen's slimy attitude, now she is more used to it.
Anyways Chu Chen is good looking and when he really acts cute, she can just pretend to be watching a drama.
"Well, um, thanks for the hard work." She said a few words superficially and decided to go out anyway, firstly to see if she could pick any fresh wild vegetables, and secondly to find out about the situation in the village.
Chu Chen thought she was going to look for the Gu brothers and stood at the door as she went out, waving his handkerchief.
"Wife master, be careful on your way -"
When Zhao Li turned around, she could still see the winks Chu Chen threw at her, and couldn't help but shiver as she hurriedly withdrew her head and moved forward with big steps.
Beauty was indeed good, but judging from the attitude of these husbands of hers, no matter how she thought about it, she felt that they wouldn't truly love her. For the sake of her life, she could not afford such beauty.
