Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 100
E/D: Spirit Song
Seeing her again after five years, he could not immediately recognize her.
It has been five years, yet her beauty never faded. On the contrary, her gloomy personality that he disliked in the past was gone. Instead, now she wore an exceptionally gentle and graceful expression.
He was most certainly moved by her beauty, but Emperor Lin was not an inept king who was solely weak to beautiful women.
He could not like her as he immediately thought of that fool for a son of his.
Emperor Lin’s expression sank visibly, and Consort Xian was taken aback. Before she could speak, Emperor Lin said quietly, “I hope you enjoy the beautiful scenery. I still have documents waiting to be reviewed. I will be leaving now.”
Consort Xian could only pay her respects as he left.
As soon as he left, she looked at Xiao Lan next to her and could not help but to sigh.
Consort Xian definitely noticed the pleasant surprise in the emperor’s eyes just before, but to walk away so decisively after remembering who Xiao Lan was, clearly he recalled the sixth prince and became unhappy. It was a waste of her meticulous arrangement, and she could not help but to feel disappointed.
I’m afraid there’s no way to bring Honorable Lady Lan back into His Majesty’s good graces.
However, Consort Xian still loved Lin Feilu, thus she was not angry with Xiao Lan. She also took Xiao Lan’s hand to comfort her, “I’m sure His Majesty is just very busy with the country’s affairs. When this cold winter passes, I will arrange for Sister to meet with His Majesty again.”
Xiao Lan herself knew that it was impossible, thus she was not disappointed. She just smiled and nodded.
The encounter between Emperor Lin and Xiao Lan quickly spread throughout the Imperial Palace. The concubines in the harem knew that this encounter was arranged by Consort Xian, but none of them expected the emperor to react the way he did.
The concubines who caught wind of this news had a good laugh by themselves. Consort Xian had placed her bets into the wrong basket, and Xiao Lan humiliated herself. Before this, they were afraid that Xiao Lan might regain the emperor’s favor and make a comeback within the Imperial Harem, but now they were not worried at all. As long as that foolish son of hers lives, Emperor Lin would never embrace her again.
It was highly presumptuous to think she could easily climb up the ranks just from hugging Consort Xian’s thigh.
These mocking gossip circulated throughout the palace which made Consort Xian very angry. She even punished a few palace maids who happened to have discussed the matter in front of her. However, Xiao Lan was not bothered and was mostly unaffected by all this. She continued to live her life quietly, but she reduced the frequency of her visits to Consort Xian’s palace.
It was also not a big deal for Lin Feilu. In the first place, she never had any expectations for Xiao Lan.
To tackle the MVP of the Imperial Palace, the best way to do it is with her own hands.
However, she was not in a rush to do so. After all, before Emperor Lin, there were still many more minor targets to capture, such as the recently-encountered Crown Prince.
Unlike the other imperial princes she had met before, this particular crown prince was a young boy with deep machinations. After all, he had been crowned as the heir to the throne since he was an infant. Everyone around him would watch his every move. He was never permitted to make any single mistake in anything he did, thus it was no wonder he had such a meticulous character.
This was not a boy whose heart could be won through flattery or with a smile.
But she liked to challenge the impossible, for it made life much more interesting to her.
