The head of the Qin family finished speaking and reached out to take back the medicine bottle.
The moment it was handed over, Jiang Chu’s body stiffened, and her eyes widened in shock.
“Come to think of it, Miss Jiang, you are not from Jiaoye City? Then how did you know about my son’s serious illness?” the head of the Qin family asked, looking down.
After asking, he found that Jiang Chu had not responded, and he couldn’t help but look up at her, puzzled.
Jiang Chu was staring at a void above his head, as if there was something there.
The head of the Qin family reached out and touched it, but he didn’t feel anything, and he raised his voice: “Miss Jiang?”
“. . . . . .Ah, I’m here.”
Jiang Chu suddenly came back to her senses, her eyes looked somewhat startled, but she forced a smile, “Are you asking about this medicine bottle? I found it accidentally in the mansion, thinking it must be yours.”
She was clearly preoccupied, which made the head of the Qin family tactfully refrain from asking further.
“Your two attendants have been invited to rest in the mansion. Miss Jiang, you can stay as long as you like.”
“Thank you for the kindness of the head of the Qin family. My family is missing me, so I must leave tomorrow. Thank you for your hospitality.”
“Very well, have a good rest tonight, and feel free to instruct the servants if you need anything,” the head of the Qin family said understandingly.
Leaving the hall, Jiang Chu walked weakly to her guest room.
“Miss Jiang, I am Xiao Cui, your maid. If you need anything, just call my name,” the maid from the Qin mansion said softly.
Jiang Chu looked at Xiao Cui, nodded in thanks, but her gaze slowly drifted to the space above Xiao Cui’s head—
【Name: Xiao Cui】
【Near-Future Fortune: Promoted by Qin Meng in two days, becoming the personal maid to the third son】
Jiang Chu returned to her room in a daze.
Not until the door was closed, and she sat down on the bed, did she feel that she had come to her senses—
What just happened?
Did she see Xiao Cui’s details?
No, not just Xiao Cui, but the head of the Qin family as well!
The moment she handed over the medicine bottle to the head of the Qin family, besides the obvious change in her spiritual sense, the most noticeable change was seeing a string of translucent characters above his head—
【Name: Qin Meng】
【Recent Fortune: Will sever ties with his daughter Qin Zixue at the family gathering in three days】
It was this string of information that made Jiang Chu stand still like she had seen a ghost. If she hadn’t feared arousing suspicion from the head of the Qin family, she would have wanted to reach out and touch it to see if the characters above his head really existed.
One Qin Meng already baffled Jiang Chu, but then she saw Xiao Cui’s as well. . . . . .
One might be a hallucination, but what about two?
This was no coincidence!
Everything happened as she handed over the medicine bottle, meaning she gained this new ability after completing this life-saving mission?
She can see the fortunes of the people around her within the next few days?
Jiang Chu’s eyes sparkled!
“Xiao Cui!” she called.
Xiao Cui hurriedly pushed the door open and came in. “Miss, what do you need?”
Xiao Cui was very respectful to Jiang Chu because everyone in the mansion knew that their young master survived thanks to Miss Jiang, the great benefactor of the whole house!
The master treated Miss Jiang courteously, and Xiao Cui, as a servant, certainly didn’t dare to be negligent.
“Could you please tell me where my two maids are staying? Can you call them over?” Jiang Chu asked.
Two was not enough; she wanted to see more people to verify that all of this was not a dream.
“They are also in the guest rooms. I’ll call them right now,” Xiao Cui said.
In a short while, they were brought in.
Wu Yu and Hua Lan entered the room, and Jiang Chu did not speak to them immediately, but instead looked above their heads—
【Name: Jiang Wu Yu】
【Near-Future Fortune: None】
The meaning of “nothing” is that nothing significant has happened recently, and her fortune has not changed, right?
Jiang Chu looked at Hua Lan again—
【Name: Hua Lan】
【Near-Future Fortune: Injured leg when getting off the horse carriage tomorrow】
Jiang Chu: . . . . . .
“Miss? Why aren’t you speaking? Did you call us over for something?”
Hua Lan looked at Jiang Chu, who had called them over and was just staring blankly above, feeling puzzled.
She looked up and saw nothing unusual.
“Ahem, nothing major, I just wanted to tell you that we’ll leave the Qin residence early tomorrow morning, so be prepared,” Jiang Chu said.
“Leaving so soon? That’s great, the Qin residence is nice, but it’s not as reassuring as our Jiang residence,” Hua Lan was quite happy.
Wu Yu simply nodded in response.
“Mm, go back and rest well then.”
After “using” them, Jiang Chu let them go.
Lying in bed, Jiang Chu stared at the ceiling, lost in thought, and then couldn’t help but smile.
She knew it, the heavens couldn’t have let her come back to be a waste! Although her spiritual sense was lacking, eventually, there would be a way to make up for this deficiency!
Early the next day, after breakfast, Jiang Chu bid farewell to the Qin family. But the farewell took a while, as she greeted almost every member of the Qin family.
After she left, the people of the Qin residence were all talking about how polite and courteous Miss Jiang was, and how extraordinary her medical skills were. Her future was boundless.
When getting on the carriage, Wu Yu went first, followed by Jiang Chu, and then Hua Lan.
But as Hua Lan was getting on, Jiang Chu reached out her hand.
“Miss?” Hua Lan was taken aback.
“Let me help you, I’m afraid you’ll fall,” Jiang Chu said.
She looked at Hua Lan’s head—
【Name: Hua Lan】
【Near-Future Fortune: Injured leg when getting off the horse carriage today】
It was originally tomorrow, but now it’s today.
Although the warning was about getting injured while getting off the carriage, Jiang Chu was still not at ease about her getting on by herself.
Who else would care about her personal maid if not herself?
“Thank you, Miss.”
Hua Lan was so moved that she almost shed tears.
Sitting in the carriage, Jiang Chu spent the whole journey looking out through the curtains—
【Name: Zhang Si】
【Recent fortune: Lose five taels of silver when going out to buy ink and pen the day after tomorrow】
Look at another one.
【Name: Tu Niu】
【Near-Future Fortune: None】
【Name: Du Feng】
【Near-Future Fortune: Argument with someone over drinking tonight, head injured in the ensuing fight】
Jiang Chu looked from one to another, seeing a semi-transparent piece of information floating above each person’s head.
She could see the names, but not always the fortunes, as half of the people had almost the word “none.”
It shows that most people’s fortunes are relatively stable, with no turning point events happening recently.
Jiang Chu looked and thought.
Near. . . . . .
How many days does “recently” refer to?
She had started observing since her time in the Qin residence, and now that she was on the street, she had seen almost fifty, if not a hundred people. Although she didn’t know these people and couldn’t remember everyone’s information, she knew one thing.
