Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 282
Lin Feilu was a little excited and also slightly nervous. Lin Nianzhi, too, noticed the noisy commotion below and leaned over to check things out. Suddenly, she exclaimed angrily, “How unreasonable! How can the people under the Emperor’s reign act this arrogantly; they’re practically not… not taking Father Emperor seriously!”
After she finished speaking, she turned to the guard and said, “What are you still standing here for?!”
The Imperial guard was about to make a move when Lin Feilu suddenly said, “Wait a minute!” She said solemnly, “At times like this, someone will usually come out as a hero to save the beauty.”
Lin Nianzhi, “?”
Did the fifth sister read too many stories?
As soon as those words were spoken, a clear voice resonated from below, “Stop!”
Lin Nianzhi’s eyes widened as both she and Lin Feilu leaned forward from the window and looked down.
The robbed woman had been dragged a few meters away by the bully. The person leading the assault was dressed in fancy clothes, so it was clear that he was not someone that ordinary folks could provoke. The onlookers backed away subconsciously, but a young man in a green outfit stood alone conspicuously from the space in front of him.
As they were facing each other, only his tall and thin frame could be seen.
The head bully looked fierce and warned arrogantly, “Boy, don’t meddle in other people’s business! Now get out of here since this Young Master is nice enough to spare your life!”
The young man in the green outfit spoke neither modestly nor arrogantly, “Beyond the Imperial City and under the reign of the Emperor, everyone should obey the law. Since you are acting so arrogantly, let’s go to the Jing Zhaoyin(1) and make some sense out of this situation!”
(T/N: An officer’s position in ancient China, a status equivalent to the Chief Executive of the Capital in modern society. Think of it as a rank name and not a person’s name)
Hearing this, the bully burst into laughter, “Who the heck would want to see the Jing Zhaoyin with you? Do you know who I am? Do you dare to meddle with my affairs?”
The young man in green still used the same tone of voice as before, “No matter who you are, you can’t forcefully rob a civilian girl on the street. This behavior violates the 12th Chapter of the 7th Volume, article number 15th of the ‘Law of the Great Lin Empire’ and you should be punished according to the law.”
The bully was dumbfounded as he turned to ask his younger henchman beside him, “What did this nerd say?”
He couldn’t understand his words, but the younger one couldn’t understand it either, so he shook his head in confusion. The young man in the green outfit took the opportunity to step forward and pulled the struggling girl, getting her to hide behind him.
Immediately, the bully became furious, “You are seeking death unto yourself!”
When he finished shouting those words, he waved his hands to signal the younger henchmen to go up and fight. The young man in the green outfit didn’t look like a martial artist as he pulled the girl and ran away. Lin Nianzhi immediately said to the guard, “Go and help him!”
The guard obeyed the order and jumped out of the window. Within moments, he managed to beat all the bullies to the ground.
The head bully, in particular, was handled in an especially miserable manner—his nose was bleeding profusely while he tried to cover it with his hands. He pointed at the guard and cursed, “You…you are doomed! Do you know who my cousin’s aunt is? She is none other than the Consort Lan, the most popular Concubine nowadays! My cousin is the Fifth Princess of the Great Lin Empire! Now that you dare to offend me, I will put you all in jail!”
Lin Feilu was surprised as she was still eating her melon, “???”
What the crap?
Lin Nianzhi glanced at the Little Fifth Princess next to her without saying anything.
