Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 2
Edited by Jelly Mae & Spirit Song
However, she didn’t expect that her next stint into another life would happen so quickly. It felt like she had just taken a short nap and by the time she opened her eyes again, she had already reincarnated.
Lin Feilu was stunned for some time. She raised her small hands and looked at it for a while. After that, she turned her head to look around.
There was a woman in a palace lady’s costume sitting next to the bed, sewing embroidery on a piece of silk. Her facial features were very beautiful, but her facial complexion was pale and white. Her whole body was exuding a sickly aura.
Lin Feilu was still observing everything secretly when a palace maid entered, “My lady, I have brought medicine.”
The woman stood up and asked, “Where is the imperial doctor?”
“Concubine Li was about to give birth so all imperial doctors were ordered to attend to her. This servant has conveyed the princess’s condition to the imperial hospital personnel. This is the medicine prescribed for the princess.”
The woman clutched the silk cloth in her hand tightly for a long while and finally sighed, as if resigned to accept her fate, “Fine. Go and boil the medicine, and then make some light porridge.”
The maid immediately left receiving the orders. The woman turned around and saw that the little girl on the bed was awake. She was looking around with her dark eyes. The woman quickly put down the silk cloth and leaned over to the edge of the bed to pick the girl up.
Lin Feilu felt somewhat light headed. The woman’s fragrance assaulted her nose as her little body was held in her arms, giving an unreal feeling.
“Dear Feilu, are you feeling uncomfortable?”
Lin Feilu shook her head as if trying to wake herself up. The woman carried her and went outside. There was a palace maid in the courtyard who was crouching under the osmanthus tree and picking out the stamens. The woman said, “When Feilu is healthy, mom will make you your favorite sweet osmanthus cake, okay?”
Lin Feilu observed the surroundings, the sight of red walls and blue tiles welcomed her sight. There was a stone table placed in the center and there was a raised platform with ancient cornices in the distance which made one feel as if you can reach the stars . There were two or three more stone tables and chairs in the courtyard. There was a large porcelain water tank on the east and west corners. There were four rooms and some randomly planted trees. This quaint courtyard was not gorgeous and seemed cold.
Lin Feilu turned her head to look at the woman. She asked in a calm tone, “What’s wrong with me?”
The voice that came out was soft and childish.
The woman answered with a warm smile, “You went to play at the Linxing Pavilion in the morning, but accidently fell into the water and caught a cold. However, it’s okay now. You just need to drink some medicine for a while.”
Lin Feilu bit her tongue. Ah… It hurts.
After a while, the palace maid brought a bowl of medicine. The woman fed her the medicine and put a piece of sweetmeat into her mouth. The palace maid beside her smiled, “The princess is so obedient. You don’t cry or make trouble when you drink your medicine.”
Lin Feilu felt a headache and whispered, “I want to sleep.”
The woman kissed her on the cheek and carried her back to the bed. Lin Feilu closed her eyes and heard the woman’s order, “Tomorrow you will send this pair of jade bracelets to Concubine Li to congratulate her on the birth of a child. I am sick and my arrival may trouble her, so I won’t visit.”
“This servant will follow your orders.”
At this moment, Lin Feilu was no longer as muddle-headed as before.
She was not sure how to react in this situation.
However, she had always been good at adapting to various scenarios. After taking the medicine and going to sleep, she had fully accepted this fact. During her sleep, memories that belonged to the little girl flooded her mind.
A five-year-old girl would not have known much.
She only knew that this place was the Great Lin Empire. Her mother was an imperial concubine named Xiao Lan. She had an older brother named Lin Zhanyuan who was two years older than her. Her brother was different from ordinary people — others secretly called him a fool.
