Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 229
Hi, everybody. I have recently started a new novel called I’ll Become a Villainess That Will Go Down in History. You can read it HERE.
Lin Feilu was a little surprised when he heard that Emperor Lin was reinvestigating the matter again.
Although she did suspect that 90% of the matter was carried out by Imperial Concubine Mei, she had no evidence to prove her claim. Besides, it would do her more harm than good to merely speak to the Emperor himself without proof.
She held Lin Zhanyuan’s chubby face and gave him a heavy kiss as she complimented him, “It’s all thanks to my brother.”
Lin Zhanyuan was stunned.
Once he was out of his trance-like state, he screamed and ran around the entire house, “Sister kissed me!”
Xiao Lan was amused. Yet she reproached, gently stating that Lin Feilu should be more aware of her mannerisms. ‘Females and males should always make sure that they don’t become too familiar with each other if the two aren’t in a relationship’— that was the policy.
“Lu Er is already 6 years old this year, you can’t ignore this rule now so you have to behave properly, alright?”
Sigh, what an old-fashioned feudal era.
Lin Feilu retorted in her heart, but she nodded obediently in response to her mother’s teachings.
Emperor Lin was an Emperor whose words were absolute; if he declared that he was going to do something, he would see to it until the very end. In the past, an upright admonisher said that he was a narcissist. Indeed, he was also a leader that took pride in his own name as the Emperor and felt that he was the coolest person in the world.
Sometimes, it was good to have such a flamboyant personality, but there were times where the narcissism wouldn’t aid in any situation. But for the present scenario, that personality of his was ideal.
With the investigation of Emperor Lin, Consort Hui became really terrified with every passing day. She was afraid that one day, an imperial edict would show up at her palace and she would be arrested by the Supreme Court for a criminal trial.
Fortunately, she waited for the news from her maternal family before waiting for the imperial edict.
The doctor who gave them the prescription before has been found. They sent someone to annihilate the root of the problem, assassinating the doctor and staging it off as an ‘accidental death’ . That year, two of the people who requested the purchase were from her maternal family and they had the ‘evidence’ to back up their claim of using it for medicational practice. Consort Hui could trust them as they were on her side; as for the other two purchases that bore the risk of revealing an untold truth, her maternal family had also taken care of that matter as well.
The links of the medication were completely cut off— Consort Hui was no longer worried, but another news came from her mother’s family.
While looking for the clues to cut off their relations with the doctor, they also spotted another wave of people who were also investigating the matter. At first, they thought that the people belonged to His Majesty, but after a secret follow-up investigation, they discovered that they belonged to the Liu family!
Consort Hui’s heart sank again.
Imperial Concubine Mei’s maternal household!
Why would they be pursuing this matter as well?!
Consort Hui only hesitated for a moment. In her head, she already had her answer.
Imperial Concubine Mei must have also known what His Majesty was investigating. She was the person who directly administered the medication back then. Hence, compared to Consort Hui, she was at a greater risk of being found out. And once they realised that she was responsible, she would no doubt rat out Consort Hui as well. It would be better to plunge into the depths of Hell together, after all.
Evidence was needed to convince the Emperor that Consort Hui was involved with the matter.
And the best evidence would be to find out the source of the medication.
