Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 162
E/D: Spirit Song
Lin Feilu decided not to tell her innocent, naive mother her heroic story, but asked another question, “Mother, I heard from Qingyan that Brother was born prematurely because you were given the wrong medicine?”
Xiao Lan did not want her children to know that; with a little frown, she answered, “Yes. The drug was administered very discreetly. Even the doctors who examined the medicine everyday have not found anything wrong with it. I only realised it these years. It should be a poison with a slow effect, and accumulates after many days. I just don’t know whether the culprit wanted me to miscarry, or just made a mistake to have damaged your brother’s wisdom.”
She suddenly realised something, and asked in surprise: “Lu’er, are you suspecting all of this was done by… Consort Mei?”
Lin Feilu did not bother being euphemistic, “Yes. She and mother are the same type of beauty, and both of you entered the palace in the same year. You two had a good relationship, and when you were pregnant, she had no reaction at all? It’s only normal for her to try to harm you out of envy and to fight for favour.”
Xiao Lan gaped at her daughter, who had solved the many years of mystery, in shock.
She was soft and kind-hearted; she did not fight nor rob, and had no intentions of getting promoted to a better title. She only had heart for her crush at that time, and always complained about her unfair fate. She did not even care to fight for Emperor Lin’s favour, let alone the other people around her.
Kind people would only have a simple outlook of the world.
Also finally mothering two children, she gradually matured and accepted her life in the harem.
If there was one thing to blame, one could only blame that Xiao Lan was born in the wrong era. With her personality and appearance, if she was born in the modern era, everyone would be fighting to protect this silly sweet girl.
Xiao Lan was stunned for a long time, then murmured, “Consort Mei was pure and good in character, gentle to others, how can she…”
Her voice trailed off, probably doubting everything that had happened in her life.
This was the typical tactics of a Green Tea Princess. Lin Feilu was not surprised at all, instead, it felt very familiar.
Well, compared with Consort Mei, she was extremely disgusted by her old self.
However, as much as she hated her old self, to counter a Green Tea Princess, one must be a better Green Tea Princess. No one knew better than Lin Feilu on how to expose a Green Tea Princess. How humiliating can foot odor be? For a Green Tea Princess, bad reputation was the biggest blow.
Xiao Lan saw the shrewd gleam in her daughter’s eyes. A mother knows her daughter best, and she knew Lin Feilu well after being with her for a long time. She hesitated and said worriedly, “Lu’er, Consort Mei is not any ordinary person. She is deeply favored by his Majesty. Even if the incident was related to her, all evidence would be erased after so many years. If we were to go against her, I’m afraid we won’t be able to gain any benefits.”
Seeing her hesitant and weak demeanor, Lin Feilu knew that she would need strong motivation. She said, “Mother, I suspect Consort Mei was behind what had happened in the post station.”
A fierce battle instinct suddenly gleamed in Xiao Lan’s eyes!
