Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 338
Lin Feilu said earnestly, “If it were any other person, even me, no one would be able to be as kind as you. I will not hurt myself for others, but for self-protection and for a better life. Many of us would do something that we don’t want to. However, you haven’t, Brother Ting. You have kept your inner principles and kindness up to now. Because of your existence, many people in this battle for succession have avoided death and calamity.”
No one died because of you. Instead, because of your existence, many people were saved.
Lin Feilu’s remarks actually stole some modern philosopher’s concepts, but she was also telling the truth.
If any other person was placed in his position, they might have stood on a united front with the Ruan family and fought for the position. The fiercer the fight for the throne and the wider it spreads, eventually more people will die.
And all of this was controlled to a minimum because of Lin Ting’s silent resistance and blocking.
Lin Feilu reached out her hand and gently wiped the tears from the corner of his eyes.
Her fingers were still the same as when she was a child— soft and warm, just like her voice at the moment, “You can feel sorry for those who died, but you don’t have to feel guilty for it. Because guilt can’t change a single thing and it can’t make everything change for the better. Even if you want to atone for your sins, you have to live to atone, right?”
Lin Ting looked at her beautiful and gentle eyes. Suddenly, it was as if he had returned to his childhood days.
Every time he was forced by his Mother Consort and didn’t know what to do, while he was so anxious to the point that he only knew how to wipe his tears, Little Lu would always help him find a solution wisely.
She had been so omnipotent since she was a child. He not only doted on her but also trusted her.
After what she said, he didn’t seem to be that uncomfortable anymore. It was as if a ray of light had pierced through the darkness, allowing him to breathe.
There was a rush of footsteps outside the courtyard as those inside could hear a frantic voice getting louder as it approached them, “My Ting Er is awake? Ting Er!”
Immediately after, the door was pushed open as Noble Consort Ruan hurried in. As soon as she entered the room and saw Lin Ting sitting on the bed, she rushed towards him, crying and embracing him into her arms.
Lin Ting had not been hugged like this by his Mother Consort for a long time, so he was stunned for a while.
Noble Consort Ruan said while crying, “Ting Er, it’s Mother Consort who is sorry. I shouldn’t have forced you to do this. I won’t ever force you to do anything from now on. No matter what you want to do, Mother Consort will no longer object to it anymore. My Ting Er, my child…”
Lin Ting was at a loss as he looked at Lin Feilu beside him, seemingly asking for help.
Lin Feilu had no choice but to say, “Noble Consort, eldest Imperial brother has just woken up, and his body is still weak.”
After hearing this, Noble Consort Ruan quickly released him. Still, she held his hand and wept. It wasn’t until Emperor Lin arrived that she forced herself to suppress her tears.
When Lin Ting saw his Father Emperor coming in, he wanted to stand up and give his greetings, but the Emperor stopped him. He looked at his eldest son with conflicted eyes. After asking about his body and health, Emperor Lin sighed in pain, “Why do you do this to yourself? Ordinary people know that living is better than dying. So as a dignified Imperial Prince of the Great Lin Empire, what is it exactly that could only be solved with your death?”
Lin Ting lowered his eyes and said nothing.
