E/D: Spirit Song
Emperor Lin quickly learned from Kongfu that his Little Fifth Princess was learning martial arts from Noble Consort Xi.
He was very disapproving at first. Was it not enough that there was a Noble Consort who could kill with a knife?!
He distinctly remembered the year Noble Consort Xi was conferred as an Imperial Concubine just after entering the palace, and was oppressed by a certain concubine at that time.
Most other concubines would choose to endure, and find a right timing for retaliation; some others would turn to the emperor for help.
Xi Tan was neither of those; she took down all the guards in that concubine’s palace, then left the concubine on the roof of her own palace.
The concubine was stuck on the roof for several hours in the middle of a hot summer’s day; the sun was scorching. She was so dehydrated by the end of it that she could not even shed a tear.
Although the concubine was banished to the cold palace for her malice, Xi Tan was also under house arrest for three months for what happened. However, this incident had left Emperor Lin with a deep understanding of Xi Tan’s combat skills.
No wonder she was nicknamed as a female Yama in the frontier juncture!
His heart ached when he thought about it.
No, I can’t let my adorable Little Fifth Princess be the next female Yama!
Emperor Lin headed to Noble Consort Xi’s hall hurriedly. As he arrived, she interrupted before he could speak, “Is your majesty here to ask me not to teach the Fifth Princess martial arts?”
Emperor Lin nodded, but Noble Consort Xi pressed on the matter with indifference, “I may be able to protect her for a while, but I can’t protect her forever. If someone in this harem plots to harm her, it’s just a matter of time before they make their next move. Learning some defensive martial arts is without a doubt better than nothing.”
Emperor Lin froze at her words.
All his princes have learned to ride and shoot, and they also have personal generals to coach them in martial arts on a regular basis, not only to strengthen their bodies, but also to protect themselves when necessary.
The princesses were not required to do so. After all, princesses posed no threat in the royal family. They only had to build up their virtue and talents, and get married off when they were at the right age.
However, the identity of the culprit from the attempt to murder the Fifth Princess was still unknown, and there remained the hidden danger lurking that the culprit might act again.
Emperor Lin’s mind spun rapidly. He was a very decisive emperor after all, and came to a decision quickly, “Tan’er is right, then I’ll hand Little Fifth Princess to you.” He cleared his throat, “Just teach her some defensive martial arts. The other killing and fighting kinds… ahem, is not necessary. It’s too dangerous.”
Noble Consort Xi looked at him, her lips curved into a smirk, “This concubine received the order.”
And Lin Feilu’s daily routine of squatting and soaking in the hot spring had begun.
In just a few days, her skin was hydrated, pink and smoother than ever. It was indeed true that exercising was the best way to beautify oneself.
Besides the hot spring, Lin Feilu also enjoyed exploring the mountains with Lin Ting. The palace was built on the mountainside. The undeveloped deep mountains in the olden times had a very primitive beauty. She discovered many new wild flowers that bloomed freely even in the cold winter.
