Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 148
E/D: Spirit Song
The only shortcoming she had was her personality – she was too dull, and never took the initiative to talk to him. Only responding whenever he asked a question, it was as if she was not willing to speak to him. He would have been long-wearied by someone else who had this kind of personality.
However, Xiao Lan captured his favour and interest for three long years with her beauty and talent. It was not until Lin Zhanyuan was revealed to be an idiot that pushed Emperor Lin to the edge, resulting in her falling out of favor.
It seemed that Xiao Lan had taught her daughter very well.
He felt a little emotional for a while, and suddenly thought of something. He turned his head and asked Consort Mei, “I remember that you and Little Fifth Princess’ mother entered the palace in the same year, right?”
Consort Mei was taken aback, but quickly recovered as usual, and replied with a soft smile, “Yes, time flies, I have been by your Majesty’s side for seven years.”
Emperor Lin smiled and nodded.
He finished quizzing Lin Ting with Lin Feilu in his arms; Lin Ting, who naturally answered each question perfectly, sat next to Lin Qing in the satisfied gaze of Emperor Lin.
Lin Qing tilted his head and snickered at him in a low voice, “If it weren’t for the Little Fifth Princess, I think Fourth would have had to suffer a beating today.”
Lin Ting could not help laughing, “The Fifth Sister is indeed smart. She should be able to go to school with us when spring starts.”
After the greeting, the princes left. Lin Feilu had originally wanted to leave, but Emperor Lin smiled and asked, “Do you still want to learn the chess you didn’t finish learning yesterday?”
She beamed at him, “Yes!”
Pengman set up the chessboard as ordered, and Emperor Lin continued to coach the little dumpling on chess.
As expected, Consort Mei was neglected again.
This time, Emperor Lin did not tell her to leave, but smiled happily at her, “Peel more of the fruit the little Fifth Princess had just now, she likes it.”
Lin Feilu glanced at her innocently.
She was indeed a professional; still managing to keep a perfectly calm composure under such circumstances, she smiled sweetly and teased, “Yes, I should also review my chess knowledge with Your Majesty through the blessing of the Fifth Princess. Your Majesty did not even have this much patience when I learned chess with Your Majesty.”
Emperor Lin chuckled, “You are talking nonsense again, I am not patient enough with you?”
Consort Mei grumbled, “Your majesty’s patience wasn’t on the chess game, it was obviously…”
She paused, blushing as if she suddenly remembered that Lin Feilu was still there, but she turned her eyes to gaze at Emperor Lin flirtatiously.
Lin Feilu thought darkly. Talking dirty and obviously trying to seduce him.
Emperor Lin too, seemed to recall what happened back then. His face shifted into embarrassment at the presence of his daughter as he glared at Consort Mei reproachfully, but he was obviously a little absent-minded after that. Lin Feilu played two rounds of chess with him before yawning with tears in her eyes.
Emperor Lin asked, “Are you sleepy?”
Before Lin Feilu could answer, he turned to Pengman, “Send the Fifth Princess back for a rest.”
Then Lin Feilu was taken away.
She heard Consort’s Mei amorous laughter as she stepped out of the hall.
A couple engaging in adultery in broad daylight.
To be able to redirect Emperor Lin’s attention back to her with just a few words, this Consort Mei did have some tricks up her sleeves. It was no wonder she was continuously favored for so many years.
Forget it, time to make up for some sleep.
