Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 276
Many women could only remain at the Pure Lady or the Honourable Lady ranks for their entire lifetime.
Xiao Lan had endured a torrent of hardships for the past five years. Once all the hardships had passed, the sparrow was now turned into a phoenix!
There was a lot of discussion in the palace for a while, but soon, the news came out that the reason why Xiao Lan was promoted to a Consort was because the Empress personally mentioned it to His Majesty.
Why did the Empress give her such a big gift? Everyone knew the answer— was it not because of the Fifth Princess’s actions that saved the Crown Prince during the Summer Hunt?
Sigh, they really didn’t know what to say about the matter. Was it not because Xiao Lan had such a good daughter? Having a son made her fall out of Imperial favour, but having a daughter made her regain it back— what a roller coaster wild ride and fascinating life experience.
While outsiders to the matter were continuing to gossip a lot about it, the person mentioned; Xiao Lan, who received the Imperial Decree, was also stunned. Everything that happened this year made her feel like she was dreaming.
Lin Feilu was already thinking about helping her fight for the position of the Consort before, but she didn’t expect that the position would be automatically delivered to her door before she started doing anything.
Suddenly, she felt that the difficulty of being a copy was getting lower and lower.
Do I really not want to become an Empress Regnant?
Forget it, she still wanted the luxury to sleep in. The Emperor woke up earlier than the roosters and went to bed later than mutts. If he indulged himself ever so slightly, he would be criticised by the courtiers. A life like that wouldn’t even compare to a wage slave(3), so she just gave up on the thought.
(T/N: Someone who works for money, a typical 9-5 worker that would do overtime. Often describing someone who barely has a life apart from working)
Lin Feilu knew that this was a rare blessing from the Empress herself, so she didn’t mind taking it.
Unsurprisingly, Lin Qing would become the Emperor in the future, so she didn’t have to think about her own life for the time being. With Lin Qing there, at least Xiao Lan and Lin Zhanyuan could be guaranteed to have a safe and sound lifestyle. At that time, she will talk to Lin Qing about getting a fief— she didn’t need to have a lavish life or a rich household; she just wanted to settle down.
At that time, she would let Xiao Lan take Lin Zhanyuan to live in the fief till their dying days in peace and comfort. That would be resolving her one and only concern.
As for her?
Lin Feilu felt that she should learn martial arts properly from Noble Consort Xi now. If she ever had the opportunity to leave the palace in the future, she would be able to freely roam the world, traverse the lands beneath the sky alone with a sword.
In the first half of her life, she would hold the palace-brawl script; the second half of her life, she would equip herself with the martial arts script— it was truly getting the best of both worlds.
Honourable Lady Lan becoming Consort Lan was in itself achieving quite a qualitative leap in honour, and lifestyle.
The Mingyue Palace, which used to be very serene and peaceful, suddenly became a popular place in the harem. Besides the Empress and the two Noble Consorts, the other Concubines came to greet her one after another.
Consort Xian watched Xiao Lan rise step by step. She saw Emperor Lin’s Imperial favour towards Xiao Lan in his eyes, so it was inevitable that she felt a little sad.
However, at her age, she no longer expected the love of the Emperor. Everyone had their own aspirations and Consort Xian was not a troublemaker. Under the supervision of Lin Feilu, Lin Jingyuan was now more promising and was forging ahead. In the future, he would undeniably be crowned his own position and a fief, remaining rich, noble and happy in his life. With that, Consort Xian was more than satisfied.
