Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 253
Everyone in the palace knew that Noble Consort Ruan had a bad temper and was difficult to serve. However, there was no trace of scheming on her part—she was quick to say things straight to the point and she would sometimes be a bit rash.
Emperor Lin was frightened by the violent fights that occurred in the previous Emperor’s harem, so he tended to favour gentle and kind women. Nevertheless, he also adored Noble Consort Ruan’s straightforward and no-nonsense temperament.
Which was why he condoned her arrogance.
Imperial Concubine Su was rather different from Noble Consort Ruan. Although they both had the same beautiful and flamboyant appearance, her personality was brighter and her tolerance level was much higher as well. No matter what came in her way, she took it all unfazed.
She didn’t seem to like or dislike anything. But after she gave birth to her daughter, her feelings and emotions became more evident.
Lin Wei ran in circles a few times, but she couldn’t find her Gatekeeper God. When she turned around, she saw her Mother Concubine smiling. Imperial Concubine Su stood by the door as she looked at her daughter, but the little baby immediately ran towards her.
Imperial Concubine Su picked up her daughter and wiped away the sweat from her forehead. She heard her daughter ask anxiously, “Mother Concubine, have you seen Weiwei’s Gatekeeper God? Weiwei can’t find him. Will he leave us if I can’t find him?”
Imperial Concubine Su pointed to the open space in front of the door. Then, she raised her eyebrows and said in surprise, “Why would he? Isn’t the Gatekeeper God just standing right there?”
The little baby stared at said area for a long time. However, when she couldn’t see anything, she finally turned her head aggrievedly, “But Weiwei can’t see him anywhere.”
Imperial Concubine Su kissed her chubby face, “Only older children can see the Gatekeeper God. Weiwei is too young, so you need to eat more and grow up quickly.”
So at dinner, Lin Wei, the ‘head of the house'(1) that would usually throw tantrums during mealtimes, finally didn’t have to be chased around the courtyard in an attempt to escape. Now, she obediently finished her meal without causing any additional fusses.
(T/N: ‘Head of the house’ as in, the child is so fussy to the point where everyone in the palace has to tend to her because they couldn’t do anything about her)
Imperial Concubine Su was very satisfied, so she instructed Xiaqing, “The Fifth Princess has helped me a lot, pick a few things from our storehouse and send them over to thank her.”
Lin Feilu, who got up early the next morning, received a gift from Imperial Concubine Su. Then, she started to express her doubts.
I practically frightened her daughter, so why did she send something over to thank me?
There were so many beauties in Emperor Lin’s harem— that was the reason why Lin Feilu hadn’t recognized them all despite spending a long time here. During breakfast, when she asked Xiao Lan about Imperial Concubine Su, Xiao Lan was also rather clueless and she didn’t know the answer to most of her queries. She only told her that Imperial Concubine Su was the cousin of Noble Consort Ruan and the two often communicated within the palace.
When it came down to Noble Consort Ruan, however, Lin Feilu was already more than familiar with her antics.
Wasn’t that the mother who forced Lin Ting to kill the pets and devoted herself to nurture her son into a beast?
Although Lin Feilu had yet to interact with Noble Consort Ruan, she seemed completely different from the arrogant and rash Noble Consort in the eyes of the palace servants.
She might truly just be arrogant, but it was impossible for one to be straightforward without a hint of schemes and tricks.
