Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 143
E/D: Spirit Song
It was getting late and everyone was ready for a good night’s rest after an exhausting two-day trip. There were already two maids waiting in the Tingyu Pavilion, and in addition to Song Yu and Kong Fu, there were four people in total waiting, more than enough to take care of Lin Feilu.
Everyone knew that the Fifth Princess traveled in the Emperor’s carriage. Looking at the guards’ stationed by her residence, everyone secretly discussed that the Fifth Princess was blessed out of misfortune, and now was favored by the Emperor.
After dinner, Lin Feilu strolled around and felt a lot more at peace when she saw the stationed guards.
Now that the assassin missed their chance, and with Emperor Lin investigating the matter and stationing guards, whoever was behind the attack would not dare to act rashly anymore. She did not worry much, but Song Yu was very nervous, and whispered, “Princess, this servant should sleep in a bed with you tonight.”
Lin Feilu smiled, “They’re not stupid. If he really comes back, he will definitely not be fooled again. Don’t worry, he won’t dare to come again with so many guards stationed here.”
Song Yu pressed on anxiously, “This servant is still worried. Before leaving, Honorable Lady Xiao Lan had ordered this servant to take care of the princess, but who knew that this would happen…”
She teared up again.
Lin Feilu tugged her hand, “You have taken good care of me. Without you, I would have died last night.”
Song Yu cried hurriedly, “The princess is not allowed to say that unlucky word! The princess is auspicious and will definitely grow up in peace!”
The two chattered as they walked, and as soon as they entered the yard, they heard a stern voice from the guards outside, “Who dares to climb the wall! Take him down!”
Not to mention Song Yu, even Lin Feilu was taken aback.
It was just nightfall, are they that desperate to take my life?
Unexpectedly, after a short moment of panic, they heard Xi Xingjiang’s slightly embarrassed voice exclaiming, “It’s me! Eh, put down your knife, and take a look at me!”
There was a rush of footsteps outside, “Greetings to the Viscount, this is…”
Lin Feilu stepped out curiously.
Xi Xingjiang was standing in the corner holding a stack of bedding rolls, scratching his nose in embarrassment.
She was fuming but amused at the same time, and called out hoarsely, “Xi Xingjiang! What are you doing here?”
Seeing that it was a misunderstanding, the Forbidden Army returned to their posts in a disciplined manner. Xi Xingjiang walked over with the bedding rolls with his chin raised high, barely hiding his embarrassment. He stumbled and said, “I…I’m worried that the assassin from last night will come again, so I decided to patrol here!”
“Why did you bring your bed for patrolling? Are you going to smother him with your blanket if you meet an assassin?” Lin Feilu questioned.
He raised his hand and rubbed the little knots on her head frustratedly, “Who do you think I am worried about? And you’re still teasing me!” He pushed her inside, “Head inside first.”
He raised his hand to close the door as they entered the courtyard. The palace servants greeted and saluted him. Xi Xingjiang waved his hand dismissively and followed Lin Feilu into the room, and then threw the bedding he was holding on to the floor beside Lin Feilu’s bed.
Song Yu hurriedly asked when he laid down on the bedding, “What is the Viscount going to do?!”
Xi Xingjiang replied without raising his head, “Can’t you see it? I’m sleeping here.”
Song Yu was anxious and frightened, “This servant knows that the Viscount is sleeping here, but why? Is the Viscount going to spend the night here?!”
