Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 357
When Xiaobai finished preparing the carriage and returned, Xiaohei went out to look for the girl.
Although Lin Feilu was sort of cunning, she never thought about teasing someone to the point where their life would be in danger.
This spoiled child of the capital, how can you be this vulnerable to teasing…
Since something like this happened, it would naturally be impossible for her to just walk away and idly wait for news with Lin Ting at the inn. It was almost noon when she saw Guan Xingran return in a hurry. As soon as he saw her, there was a look of joy on his face as he came over and said, “Lady Huang, I thought you left already. Were you purposely waiting for me for a special trip?”
Lin Feilu, “…Did you find Miss Queyin?”
An odd look appeared on Guan Xingran’s face and he hesitated before saying, “She…she left the city,” After speaking, she looked at her earnestly, “Lady Huang, let’s set off too.”
Lin Feilu believed that he was the one hiding something with an ulterior motive.
Fortunately, Xiaohei also came in and came over to whisper a few words. Lin Feilu’s face changed and when she looked at Guan Xingran again, she was genuinely angry, “You said that Lady Queyin has left the city? If so, why am I hearing that she is being held captive inside the city?”
Guan Xingran’s complexion changed repeatedly, going from a bashful red to a shocked pale. Then, he hesitated for a long time before he said, “Lady Huang, you are new to the world and you do not understand the rules of not being an enemy of the Imperial Court. It is King Pingyu who is holding the reins of the city, so the rest of us are powerless against him.”
Lin Feilu scolded him, “Isn’t she your fiancé? You won’t save her if the other party is a Prince? Do you still consider yourself a man?”
Guan Xingran was very embarrassed by her scolding, but he insisted, “King Pingyu is the Emperor’s brother of the current Majesty and Yinzhou City is his fief; it would be very unwise to offend him. Why bother to provoke disputes between the city and the imperial court when there is nothing to gain from it?”
What’s more, the Jade Sword Villa still had business in Yinzhou City. If he were to offend King Pingyu, the royal King wouldn’t want to do this business. Instead, he would probably cut off the villa’s source of income, causing the Young Master’s father to turn his back on his son.
Lin Feilu sneered, “You speak so highly of him, but instead, you’re just a timid coward,” She stood up and told Xiaohei, “Let’s go and have a look.”
Guan Xingran hurriedly said, “Lady Huang, that King Pingyu adores all things beautiful in his life. All the women he likes are captured in the mansion, so aren’t you throwing yourself into the trap?!”
Lin Feilu ignored him.
After going out with Lin Ting, she asked in a low voice, “Who is King Pingyu?”
It was normal for her to not know, so Lin Ting explained, “King Pingyu is the ninth son of the late Emperor. Although he is the ninth son, he has never been conferred a title because the late Emperor was drunk, and he was born from a palace maid. When Father Emperor ascended the throne, he granted amnesty to the whole world. Only then did he raise his rank as a King and left Yinzhou under his care.”
When dividing the territories for the Princes, they all at least got some form of state capitals or precious territory. For King Pingyu to have only been granted a mere Yinzhou City, it could be seen that Emperor Lin just dismissed him casually.
Unexpectedly, he became the ‘Emperor’ here.
