Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 191
The appearance of the white flowers were indeed wonderful. The calyxes of the plant were made up of countless small white flowers, clustered in groups on the branches—it was really beautiful. Consort Mei watched for a while, and then instructed the maid beside her, “Take one leaf, smash it and put it on your face to try the medicine.”
The palace maid accepted the order and applied the crushed turquoise liquid on her face as instructed. After applying it and washing it off with water, she returned to relay her answer, “Consort, this lowly servant doesn’t feel any discomfort on my face.”
Consort Mei leaned close to look at her for a long time before she murmured, “I don’t see any suppleness either.”
Xixiang smiled on the sidelines and said, “How can the reaction be so quick to manifest? Didn’t Yuyin say that it took Xiao Lan more or less seven days to observe the results? If the Consort still feels uneasy, we can call her to see it again tomorrow.”
Although Yuyin was credible, and the Mingyue Palace had no chance of knowing that Eyeliner (spy) was in the palace, the several-year vigilance of Consort Mei made her wary of using it immediately.
It wasn’t until the next afternoon that the palace maid was summoned again.
The toxicity of this giant hogweed had to be combined with the sunlight to take effect, but recently the spring rains have been rather constant, not even revealing a sliver of sunlight. Hence, it was natural for the palace maid to not experience any sort of discomfort.
After returning from the Hot Springs Bathhouse, Emperor Lin hadn’t visited her again. Although he sent people to give her some precious items from time to time, he had never set foot into her palace. The day after tomorrow will be the birthday of Consort Mei. According to the traditions of the previous years, Emperor Lin would come to accompany her for lunch.
Consort Mei has been a little haggard recently because of her losing the Emperor’s favour. Plus, her skin was not as fair as it was before. Upon seeing the palace maid who tried the medicine turn out alright, she didn’t hesitate anymore. That night, she let Xixiang smash the large white flowers, lathering a thick layer of the paste over her entire face.
Yuyin did mention that Lin Feilu was reluctant to use it as she only took a small portion each time.
If that was the case, she should use more so that it would take effect at a faster pace. When His Majesty came over, he was sure to be amazed by his beauty!
On her birthday, Consort Mei got up early and dressed up.
Before washing her face, Xixiang applied the paste of the large, white flower on the Consort’s face as she smiled and said, “Today is Consort’s birthday, and even the weather is clearing up for you. In a while, His Majesty will come over for lunch later; the Consort could even go on a stroll around the Royal Flower Garden with His Majesty.”
Consort Mei couldn’t help but smile.
Although Emperor Lin hadn’t forgotten her stenched foot scene, it has been a long time since—after all, he still loves Consort Mei, so it would naturally be impossible for him to remain cold towards her for long. After such a long time, the odor of his beloved Consort’s feet must have been cured. Today was her birthday, and it was time to go see her no matter what.
Hence, as soon as the Morning Court ended, Emperor Lin went to Consort Mei’s Yinshuang Palace.
Consort Mei had been ready for a long time. Her attire of the day was a traditional chiffon dress of a light hue of cyan, whereas her makeup was light and pure. When she saw Emperor Lin, gone was the resentment she bore for his long ignorant attitude towards her as the only emotion reflected in her eyes were those of unyielding longing and bashfulness.
