Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 324
Emperor Lin searched for him for a while without any news before he handed the Song Empire an incriminating letter. He reminded them of the status of the Royal Prince that was meant to be a prisoner, demanding that the Song Empire send him back. He was going to be extremely strict with the demand as he needed to uphold his reputation!
As a result, the Song Empire, who had always been trembling when faced with the Great Lin Empire, straightened their backs this time and replied that the ruling monarch was seriously ill. He requested the 7th Prince to serve by his side for the remaining time. The 7th Prince was full of filial piety, so he returned to the country to serve his Father Emperor, claiming that filial piety was their first priority. They also stated that His Majesty Emperor Lin was someone who upheld his own filial morals as well, so they hoped that he would be empathetic and not instigate the cruel act of separating father and son.
And in the end, Emperor Lin truly couldn’t do it…
In the eyes of the world, he was the standardly dutiful son and benevolent Emperor. It was deemed true that the Song Emperor was seriously ill, so Song Jinglan’s concern for his father that prompted him to return to the country to serve was also worthy of praise. As long as Emperor Lin still wanted to be remembered in history for benevolence, he couldn’t summon the captive Prince back.
The Song Empire not only replied to the letter, but they also supplemented the documents requesting the return of the royal prisoner and a hoard of apology gifts to the Great Lin Empire— this matter was over.
After Lin Feilu heard it, she was secretly surprised.
Little Pretty Boy had been in the Great Lin Empire for many years, so she thought that the Song Empire should have given up on him long ago. Unexpectedly, when he returned, the Song Empire was willing to dismiss Emperor Lin’s incrimination towards him and also found so many highly valid reasons. It could be seen that Little Pretty Boy’s status had not decreased but actually increased after he went back home, though she was unaware of how he could pull it off.
However, she was relieved to know that he was safe.
After the Crown Prince’s wedding, two incidents of Concubines hanging themselves and the royal prisoner’s escape occurred one after another. No one knew where rumours suddenly spread from, but it was said that the Crown Prince’s marriage was unlucky and collided with the royal luck. Many speculated that there were going to be a lot of bad incidents happening in the future.
It seemed like the world was trying to confirm this rumour as the miscarriage of a Concubine occured. Not long after, a eunuch was heard to have gone crazy all of a sudden without any solid reason.
The Concubine was only three months pregnant and she just went to visit the Imperial garden during the day, but when she came back at night, she felt an unbearable surge of abdominal pain, instantly knowing the inevitable after seeing red.
And the case with the eunuch was even weirder. He was serving others in the palace before, but suddenly, he screamed wildly and his eyes seemed to be possessed by an evil spirit. He rushed towards the palace maid next to him and opened his mouth, biting her neck. A piece of flesh was practically torn off from the palace maid and the eunuch was also beaten to death by the guards.
For a time, everyone in the palace was in danger.
Although the Empress had strictly ordered the harem not to discuss this matter, the rumours spread even more fiercely and finally reached the ears of Emperor Lin. Although he didn’t say anything, he summoned the eminent monk from the Huguo Temple to the palace to perform a great ritual. He also announced that the people in the Royal Astronomy Supervisors had made a mistake in calculating the auspicious day for the Crown Prince’s wedding.
