Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 30
Re-translated by Jelly Mae & Edited by Spirit Song
But now, Lin Jingyuan was willing to accept a book that Lin Feilu gave to him. He even cherished it very much. It was clear that he truly adored this little sister. Moreover, this little sister was neither a spoiled child nor a cunning one. Consort Xian was no longer worried about their relationship anymore. She even hoped to ask Lin Feilu to persuade her son to study hard.
She confessed, “Jingyuan is very playful, and he is not as intelligent as Feilu. Since he is willing to listen to you, try to persuade him to study instead. You don’t have to do much. It’s good enough if you just make him memorize ‘The Analects of Confucius’ as soon as possible. That is also how he can show his gratitude for your gift.”
Lin Feilu nodded and obediently replied, “Feilu will do as Milady asks.”
Consort Xian was very satisfied. She gave her many things before Lin Feilu left. Among the gifts, there were several boxes of snacks as well. She instructed Suiyu to lead several palace maids and eunuchs to personally escort her back to Mingyue Palace. This perplexed Xiao Lan.
Suiyu said with a smile, “My Lady has a message: If Honorable Lady Xiao Lan is not busy, you should visit Changming Palace often. My Lady loves the Fifth Princess and treats her as her own daughter.”
Xiao Lan was simply overwhelmed by the favor she received.
After the servants had left, everyone looked at the gifts that had filled the entire courtyard, then looked at each other in dismay. Finally, it was Qingyan who happily exclaimed, “Our princess must be a blessed child — everyone loves our princess!”
The movements of the Changming Palace in the past two days were also observed by the other palaces. Everyone was confused and did not understand why Consort Xian suddenly wanted to win over an Honorable Lady who had fallen out of favor for many years. Not to mention the fact that Mingyue Palace itself recently became an ominous place.
After they listened to reports of the palace servants’ gossips, they found that the root cause was the close relationship between the fourth prince and the fifth princess. The fourth prince had always been a troublemaker, causing uproar in the Imperial Palace almost once every 2 or 3 days. Everyone was used to this. Nowadays, they rarely hear of his mischiefs. Some eunuchs had even swore that they had seen him fishing in Lake Pavilion while reciting “the Analects”.
Everyone found it strange at first, but they finally connected the dots and understood.
It was no wonder why Consort Xian took a liking to the fifth princess. She was capable of getting the fourth prince to listen to her, which was not something any ordinary people could do.
Everyone expressed their curiosity about the fifth princess. They didn’t pay much attention to her before. Now that they have started to pay more attention, they could often see her in places like the Royal Flower Garden and the Royal Viewing Terrace.
Apart from her good manners, cute looks and quick wit; it seemed that there was nothing extraordinarily special about her.
Then why was the fourth prince so obedient to her?
This eventually remained an unsolved mystery in the Imperial Harem.
