Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 196
Some people were happy and some were worried about the demotion of Consort Mei into Imperial Concubine Mei.
But everyone mutually understood that the Fifth Princess was not someone they should trifle with.
Even now, Imperial Concubine Mei adamantly refused to admit that the death of the palace lady was related to her, so it would be even more unlikely for her to admit that the palace lady was someone that she had sent to the Mingyue Palace as a spy. They (everyone else) only guessed that it was probably because the particular palace lady had offended the Imperial Concubine Mei in some way to end up in a state of tragedy.
In fact, it was not at all uncommon for one or two people to die in the palace. The difference would be that they were all murdered in secret and there was no commotion over it. That palace lady had a good master as the Fifth Princess was willing to seek justice for her. However, if His Majesty could be this ruthless, it would probably be related to Imperial Concubine Mei’s disfigurement.
Now that her face was covered with purple scars, he would have a nightmare even with just a glance, which was a different scenario from her odoured feet. The imperial doctor mentioned that those scars would stay on Imperial Concubine Mei’s face for a long time as there was basically no possibility of them healing.
Although Emperor Lin used to love his beloved Imperial Concubine’s body and softness, he is still a Yan Dog(2) in essence. There was no shortage of beauties in the harem, so why would he ever bother to even trouble himself.
(T/N: Yan Dog means someone who appreciates things of high value, eg: beautiful people, status, wealth, brands etc)
As soon as her position was demoted, the concubines who had been close to Imperial Concubine Mei before had wisely stayed away from her. The most popular Yinshuang Palace was left in a silently cold atmosphere, but at the very least, Emperor Lin sympathised with her and hadn’t asked her to move out.
Imperial Concubine Mei laid on the bed, barely eating or drinking for three days as her tears had dried up on her face.
She knew that she was a complete goner this time.
Beauty was the greatest weapon of a woman in the harem. Now that her weapon was gone, she wouldn’t be able to win over His Majesty’s heart no matter how hard she tried.
Fine, what a great Xiao Lan.
An eye for an eye, indeed. Xiao Lan was nearly disfigured, so she returned the favour in the same way by disfiguring me.
I considered her as stupid before, but it turns out that I have underestimated the enemy too much.
Imperial Concubine Mei thought about this as remorse and resentment blossomed, making her cry bitterly again. During this period of time, all the staff in the Yinshuang Palace have abandoned her, allowing her to experience the cold treatment that Xiao Lan had tasted right at the beginning, with only Xixiang remaining by her side.
After a while, Xixiang came in and called her, “Imperial Concubine, Consort Hui is here.”
After the incident, this was the first person to visit her.
At this time, the sky was already dark. Concubine Hui was dressed in a cloak and her movements were careful, as if she didn’t want to be known that she was here.
Imperial Concubine Mei sat up from the bed with a disheveled head as tears still hung on her face. When Consort Hui entered the room and saw her appearance, her heart was shocked. Although she knew she had been disfigured, she was still terrified by this ‘respectful appearance’.
Imperial Concubine Mei uttered the word ‘sister’ in a hoarse voice.
Consort Hui suppressed the fright in her heart as she walked over and sat on the side of the bed, holding her hand, “Younger sister is ill, you should take care of yourself. So why are you crying like this?”
