Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 187
After getting up the next day, Lin Feilu began to pay attention to the palace maid with a mole on her eyebrow. Her name was Yuyin, and she was about the same age as Qingyan. She was born with a pair of low-angled eyebrows and her appearance looked rather honest. She was also conscientious and diligent in completing tasks. If it was not for Song Jinglan’s reminder, it would have taken her a long time to notice the girl behaving rather oddly.
Although the pretty lady didn’t say who she was working for, Lin Feilu used her clever little brain to know that it was Consort Mei who arranged this fateful meeting.
Arranging ‘Eyeliner’ here to infiltrate the palace, is she trying to pull tricks on us? Perhaps she wants to use poisoning? Or did she just want to monitor our movements?
Lin Feilu didn’t tell anyone else about this incident temporarily, including Xiao Lan, to ensure that they wouldn’t be acting suspiciously in front of the spy.
Qingyan and Yunyou were very vigilant after receiving instructions. Yuyin had just arrived at Mingyue Palace, which was precisely the time where she needed to gain their trust. Hence, she probably wouldn’t act rashly for the time being.
If the enemy doesn’t make a move, I won’t make a move. Lin Feilu didn’t plan to alert the enemy of her knowledge, so she planned to just observe for the time being before she made any decisions.
As someone who would be bearing an unspeakable secret, no matter how good she was able to pretend, her reaction and performance at certain times would definitely be different from normal people if nothing else.
After observing her for a period of time, Lin Feilu discovered that Yuyin paid special attention to Xiao Lan’s daily life.
Qingyan and Yunyou would not let the newly arrived staff enter the house nor were they allowed to handle any of the owner’s personal matters. Another maid would go over to other areas to wait, but Yuyin did not do so. Instead, she would still wait outside by the door. She had a loyal and honest look on her face, as if she was awaiting her orders at any time, but in fact, her eyes would secretly glance into the house.
What Xiao Lan ate, what she did and said— all of those traits seemed to be her surveillance content.
Other than that, there were no other actions from her.
She watched Xiao Lan quietly every day and Lin Feilu did the same as she observed Yuyin, which felt strange and interesting. She thought it was rather boring as she was unable to go out recently, but now, this has added a lot of fun into her life.
It was a rainy day in spring and the steady droplets of water fell continuously, cooling down the warm weather. After a long day of rainfall, Lin Jingyuan, who hadn’t seen his sister Little Lu, rushed over.
He knew that because of Xiao Lan’s affairs, Little Lu had not been in a good mood recently, so he had asked Kang-an to send her a bunch of interesting and fun stuff on a daily basis.
As soon as he came over today, he took her and said, “I heard that the Imperial Household Department has recently brought in many exotic flowers and plants. My mother consort went to see them the day before yesterday and said it was really quite interesting. Let me take you to enjoy the flowers and relax!”
Xiao Lan’s illness had gradually been recovering recently and she was already able to walk. She looked at Lin Feilu and laughed softly, “Go with the Fourth Prince and have a look. You haven’t been out to play for a long time, I don’t want you to get bored to the point where you’d become sick.”
Lin Feilu couldn’t really reject Lin Jingyuan’s enthusiasm, so she nodded in agreement.
Then, Lin Jingyuan happily took her to enjoy the sight of the flowers.
