Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 152
E/D: Spirit Song
Just as Lin Feilu was distracted by her own thoughts, she jumped when two crisp noises came from the roof of the side room where they went in, like the sound of tiles being knocked away.
The maid servant looked up and was about to speak but was hindered by another racket emitting from the roof above them, accompanied by the caws of what seemed to be crows.
The maid servant hurriedly led Lin Feilu out in fright, the few of them went out to the courtyard to check if they could see the cause of the commotion. However, the hall was built so high that nothing could be seen, though the commotion did not stop. The blood was drained from the maid servant’s face when she addressed Lin Feilu, “Princess, please return to the main hall first, this maid servant will summon the guards.”
As she spoke, Noble Consort Xi had also arrived after them.
Noticing their gaze at the roof, she asked faintly, “What are you looking at?”
The maid servant recounted the incident at once, and with the same indifferent expression on her face, she said, “I’ll go up and see.”
With a light tap of her foot, she floated up to the roof.
Did she just fly up there?
This was much higher than the tree Xi Xingjiang flew up!
Is everyone in that family that good at flying?
Wait, what is this anti-Newton Law martial art?
Lin Fei Lu gaped at Noble Consort Xi, who landed lightly on the roof, bent over and picked up something, then floated back down and tossed it to the ground.
“Just a crow with a broken wing. Take it out and throw it away.”
She turned to leave to wash her hands, only to find that someone was hugging her thigh.
Noble Consort Xi looked down only to see the eyes of the little bean, bright and shining with excitement.
“What is it again?”
Lin Feilu piped, “I want to learn!”
Xi Guifei raised her eyebrow, but her tone was still calm, “How old are you? What do you want to learn this for? There’s no need for you to go to the battlefield.”
“I want to learn, I want to learn, I want to learn!”
Tantrums are a child’s weapon!
Noble Consort Xi looked at her for a while. The little bean’s hair was no longer in one large bun, but had returned to her usual two little knots on her head, wrapped in a beautiful red ribbon. She rubbed herself on Noble Consort Xi like a puppy, trying her best to attack her mind with her cuteness.
She could not help recall Xi Xingjiang’s visit at the palace, the way he described his first encounter with the Fifth Princess exultantly, “Aunt, you have not seen the two little knots of Bunbun! Ah, they are so cute, I just want to protect them and yet also destroy (mess) them at the same time!”
The ignorant and incompetent newphew was definitely correct.
Lin Feilu blinked as she heard the big beauty said, “OK.”
Before she could celebrate, Noble Consort Xi continued: “Foundation is very important in martial arts. We will start today. Begin with a martial-art squat for two hours in this yard.”
“Do you know how to squat?”
She demonstrated the perfect posture of a martial-art squat, like the teacher of a martial arts school in a Hong Kong kung fu film.
Noble Consort Xi then left to have tea in the hall, leaving Lin Feilu alone in the cold.
Although she exercised consistently, her workouts could not be compared to a martial-art squat. Not to mention two hours, she would not be able to hold out for even ten minutes. It was even more painful than when she was forced to plank by a trainer during her first visit to the gym.
Watching her trembling legs and pale face, Songyu pleaded, “Princess, let’s forget it. The Lady had to suffer a lot back then to become so strong. You are too young to withstand this.”
Lin Feilu yelled in her childish voice, “No! Noble Consort Xi had agreed to teach me. I can’t give up halfway!” She straightened her two short hands, “Ha!”
Sitting in the hall and enjoying her tea, Noble Consort Xi listened silently. “…”
