Chapter 152 - Karma Comes Too Quickly
The East Defender General immediately said, “They’re all soldiers who have gone to the battlefield and killed enemies. Yet, they’re crying for their parents just because of this little pain. It even caused the two princes and the princess to worry.
“This is their fault. I’ll punish them according to the military laws. Ten strokes for each of them. I guarantee that this will be more effective than any divine spiritual medicine.”
The third prince became anxious. “You! How dare you! Are you still reasonable? They’re sick, but not only did you neglect their treatment and didn’t take their injuries to heart, but you’re finding a reason to punish them with the military laws.”
The East Defender General’s expression looked respectful, but his tone was actually rude and unreasonable. “The country has its laws and the army has military laws. No matter how much Your Highness wants to save people, you can’t ignore the military laws. Otherwise, how will this subject be able to convince others in the future?”
He seemed to be very happy to see the third prince suffer and immediately urged Advisor Cao to issue his military order.
Gu Nuo’er tilted her head and said in a soft voice, “Advisor uncle, even a three-year-old child like me knows that orders that are a little muddle-headed mustn’t be abided by.”
Advisor Cao was caught in a dilemma, not knowing what he should do!
The East Defender General was his superior. If he didn’t listen to the general’s orders, he would be violating military orders.
However, there were two princes and the princess sitting here, with one of them being the emperor’s pampered princess. He didn’t dare to offend her.
In the end, the East Defender General became anxious and turned to pass down the military order himself.
Unexpectedly, just as he raised his foot to cross the threshold, he felt dizzy from drinking alcohol and fell to the ground.
The clothes on his knees were immediately torn, and a piece of his thigh was also scraped by the gravel on the ground.
At that moment, everyone seemed to have heard the sound of a dislocating bone.
“General! Are you alright?!” Advisor Cao was shocked and hurriedly rushed over to help him up.
East Defender General had his hand on his waist. “Ouch, it hurts! Quickly call the military doctor over. I can’t move!”
Gu Nuo’er blinked her long eyelashes. “General, but you just said that injuries and bleeding are inevitable for soldiers when going to war. It’s just a little pain.
“Your injury is a lot lighter compared to the injured soldier older brothers lying in the rooms. I don’t think you need to use medicine~”
The child jumped down from the chair and called out to her two older brothers.
“Second Brother, Third Brother, let’s go and hand the money to the military doctor and get him to arrange for someone to buy medicinal herbs. As for the East Defender General, just let him lie here for a while~ Perhaps he’ll sober up~”
The second and third princes stood up together, each holding onto one of their sister’s small hands. They looked coldly at the East Defender General who was on the ground and left.
“Don’t go, Your Highness! Please help this subject, Your Highness!”
The East Defender General was in so much pain that he gritted his teeth. “Advisor Cao, what are you waiting for? Hurry up and call the military doctor over! Do you really want me to lay here forever?”
Advisor Cao hurriedly nodded and ran out.
After a while, he ran back and said anxiously, “General, this is bad. The princes and princess had sent out the military doctor together with the other soldiers to buy medicinal herbs!”
The East Defender General punched the ground angrily. “Damn it! Don’t just stand there, idiot! Don’t you know to get someone to carry me to the bed first?”
After a series of efforts, the East Defender General lay on the bed and rolled around in pain. The more he moved, the more pain he felt.
As for the three siblings, after instructing the military doctor to give the soldiers medicine, they got into the carriage and returned to the palace.
Along the way, the second prince, Gu Zitang, laughed heartily.
“What goes around comes around. This retribution came too quickly. He had just called others rough people, but when it was his turn, he shouted that it was painful and wanted to apply medicine!”
