Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 182
Bonus chapter is here~
The imperial doctor had already left by this time and she asked Yunyou in a deep voice, “Was there anything strange when they were viewing the flowers? Why did the bees only chase mother?”
Yunyou sobbed, “I didn’t know at the time, but now looking back, there was something amiss. When this lowly servant accompanied the Madam, there was the scent of wormwood on everyone else’s body. At that time, this lowly servant only thought it was to repel mosquitoes with the arrival of spring. Now that I think about it, it was probably because bees don’t like the smell of wormwood.”
Lin Feilu calmly listened to her, before she thought about it and asked, “Where is the dress that mother had worn to the garden?”
Yunyou replied, “This lowly servant had changed Madam’s attire. It should be in the basin outside as I haven’t had the time to wash it.”
Lin Feilu asked her to lead the way. After walking over, she picked up the dress still soaking in the tub and took a sniff of the scent. Even after being drenched in the lake, it wasn’t enough to wash away the scent of pollen on the dress.
Yunyou smelled it too and gasped in surprise, “This scent is very strange. It’s not the scent that Madam would usually use!”
Lin Feilu could guess what had actually happened. It seemed like Concubine Mei took advantage of a moment Xiao Lan had lowered her guard and sprinkled bee-attracting pollen on her, which caused the bees to chase her alone. If Xiao Lan hadn’t jumped into the water, she would have been stung badly to the point of disfigurement.
This woman is too evil.
Yunyou said angrily, “Princess! Let’s meet the Empress and demand justice!”
Lin Feilu replied with a question, “Do you have any evidence to prove that Consort Mei did it? Did you personally see her sprinkling pollen on mother?”
Yunyou was speechless for a while.
Lin Feilu said quietly, “The people who joined the outing with her today should be her cronies. Since she has made such detailed and perfect preparations, she will not leave evidence behind either.”
Yunyou cried and said, “It’s all my fault for being stupid, I failed to protect the Madam.”
Lin Feilu sighed, “Stop crying, just take good care of mother. Nothing else matters as long as she is alright.”
Yunyou wiped away her tears and couldn’t help but feel a little bit ruthless, “Princess, are we just going to forget this matter?”
Lin Feilu smiled, “Forget it?” She threw the soaked dress into the basin, wiped the water on her hands and nonchalantly said, “This matter will not be over until I make her suffer.”
The Princess suddenly appeared very intimidating!!!
Qingyan quickly obtained the medicine and came back. Then, she started concocting the medicine together with Yunyou.
Lin Zhanyuan stopped crying, but his eyes were as red as the little rabbit in his arms. He squatted by the bed to look at Xiao Lan, then at Lin Feilu, before he choked up and asked, “Sister, is mother dead?”
Lin Feilu took his hand and led it beneath the bed covers to hold Xiao Lan’s hand. “A dead person has no temperature. Touch it, is our mother’s hand warm?”
Lin Zhanyuan touched her hand for a long while with reddened eyes, then he smiled, “They’re warm!”
Lin Feilu also laughed, “That means mother isn’t dead. She just fell asleep and will wake up soon.”
Lin Zhanyuan put a finger on his lips and hushed twice, before whispering, “Then let’s not disturb mother’s sleep. Sister, let’s go out and play.”
Lin Feilu nodded, took his hand and left the room.
Lin Zhanyuan now has a little rabbit and Chang Er to accompany him, and his current life is much happier than before. His personality has become more cheerful and even more lively than it was when she first came here. He was only shocked by the scene when Xiao Lan was rescued from the waters this morning, which made him unable to stop crying.
Now that he knew his mother was okay, he soon started playing happily in the yard again.
