Hi, everybody. It will be great if you can recommend this novel to other people.
E/D: Spirit Song
Lin Feilu came out of the room without seeing the ‘surveillance object’, so she turned around and asked Qingyan, “Where is Yuyin?”
Qing Yan replied, “She accidentally lost one side of her earrings so she went out to look for them.”
Lin Feilu looked at the rain falling on the porch and yawned, “When will the rain stop?”
Qing Yan smiled and said, “This humble servant heard from the others yesterday that the people from the Royal Astronomy Supervisors have estimated that it will take one or two days. It’s about time the sun comes back up; the quilts are starting to smell a bit musky.”
She looked at the lonely, big, white flower that was soaked by the rain and said with a smile, “These flowers were cut by the Fifth Princess to the point where only the flower stems are left. Now that I think about it, this lowly servant keeps thinking that the crushed juices of these flowers seem to have a similar smell to the Hu Gua (cucumber).”
‘Hu Gua’ was another name for cucumber. But in order to avoid the Emperor’s royal character, it was called Hu Gua.
(T/N: Cucumber is called ‘Huang Gua’ in Chinese, but the Emperor is called ‘Huang Shang’. They had the homophones of the same pronunciation although it was a different word. To avoid that, they changed the name entirely.)
Lin Feilu smiled and did not answer.
She thought to herself, that’s because it is a cucumber, so how could it not smell like one?
She hid the cucumbers in Xiao Lan’s room early in the morning every day. After cutting the giant hogweed and bringing them in, the cucumbers were the ones that were actually pounded. The red marks on Xiao Lan’s face were a bit inflamed, so it’s good to use cucumbers to moisturize and eliminate the inflammation. Using cucumbers for skincare and moisturizing were top-notch methods, so of course it would work.
Although they were green-turquoise coloured, they couldn’t be seen after the smashing process. She didn’t tell the truth to Qingyan, but secretly told Xiao Lan, which was why Qingyan really thought that she had really used the giant hogweeds for the facial application.
Xiao Lan’s skin was already in a good state, but it really depended more on her mood.
Seeing that Consort Mei was about to suffer, how could she be in a bad mood?
She puts on a cucumber mask every day and she has her children by her side. She was eating well and sleeping soundly— it would be odd if her skin wasn’t getting any better.
After half an hour, Yuyin came back. Lin Feilu, who was holding Chang Er and playing with Lin Zhanyuan under the porch, looked up and saw her trotting in under an umbrella. She smiled and asked, “Yuyin, have you found your earring?”
Yuyin smiled shyly,”I found it. Thank you, princess, for your concern.”
Lin Feilu thought that there were actually quite a few actors in this palace.
Yuyin returned safely to Mingyue Palace, whereas Consort Mei had also received the message.
There was a continuous drizzle outside the house as Consort Mei sat on her side and looked at Xixiang suspiciously, “Is this true? Why had this Consort never heard of it? And how did the little girl know?”
Xixiang thought for a while and said, “Yuyin is credible, this matter is probably real. This lowly servant has heard that the Fifth Princess was very close to a new Imperial doctor named Meng Fuji from the Imperial Hospital, and also heard that Meng Fuji’s parents were both knowledgeable rural doctors. Perhaps that Meng Fuji informed her, but I don’t really know either.”
Consort Mei nodded thoughtfully. She pondered for a long time before she ordered, “Order someone to get some pots of this flower from the Imperial Household Department.”
Xixiang accepted the order and left. Soon, pots of the large and white flowers were moved to Consort Mei’s palace.
