Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 421
Xiao Lan had been keeping vigil over the late Emperor Lin, and her body was already weak, to begin with. But upon hearing about the marriage proposal, she immediately passed out after a fit of sorrow. When Xiao Lan woke up, Lin Feilu ordered everyone else to leave as she sat on the edge of the bed. Then, she held her mother’s hand and told her what she was thinking about word by word.
Xiao Lan’s pale face slowly regained its color. She recalled her daughter’s personality over the years and finally realized, “It turns out that the person you liked was him all along…” She paused and choked up again, “But the journey will be long…”
Lin Feilu hugged her and said, smiling, “I will come back to see Mother Consort often since he treats me well. He has been very good to me before and will treat me better in the future.”
Xiao Lan looked at her distressedly, “To have an Emperor’s love is the most ruthless thing of all. Even if he treats you well, there are also many women in the palace. The last thing I want for you is to experience what I have gone through.”
Lin Feilu didn’t know where the surge of her self-confidence came from, but she felt that Little Pretty Boy would definitely not accept any other beauties of the harem to anger her. Even so, it would be better not to have high expectations this brazenly, so she just said, “Don’t worry, I’m pretty awesome, you know? I can take care of myself.”
Although Xiao Lan was happy that her daughter could marry the man she loved, she also felt distressed that she would have to travel such a far distance. However, with the situation as it is, she knew that there was no other way.
Lin Jingyuan and Lin Nianzhi also had a fight with Lin Qing about the matter, but they were both persuaded by Lin Feilu in the end. Lin Ting was the only one who didn’t seek out Lin Qing as he went to ask her opinions on the matter directly.
Everyone felt that Lin Feilu’s statement of liking Song Jinglan was a molded lie, created merely to offer some form of comfort for them, but only Lin Ting believed what she said was true.
The Little Fifth Princess had been brilliant ever since she was a child. If she didn’t want to do something, she would have many ways to solve the matter.
If she said that she liked him, then it would mean that it was nothing but the truth. She would never put herself in harm’s way voluntarily.
Among all the people, Lin Feilu was only worried about Xiao Lan. However, with this ‘enthronement gift’ given to him, no matter what happens, Lin Qing will not mistreat her mother in the future.
There didn’t seem to be anything to worry about in the Great Lin Empire. Everyone around her was living a fulfilling life of their own, so she could find her happiness with peace of mind.
It’s just that Lin Qing rejected her proposal to take Lin Zhanyuan together to the Song Empire with her.
“The Sixth Brother is the Great Lin Empire’s Imperial Prince no matter what. Once he goes there, regardless of the reasoning, he will be treated as a captive Prince. The current relationship between our empire and the Song Empire is a marriage alliance. However, once the Prince is involved, it will evolve into the Great Lin Empire asking for peace— just like the Song Empire’s situation back then. We must not leave behind such a history of humiliation.”
Lin Feilu didn’t consider this aspect at first, but in the end, Lin Ting offered to take Lin Zhanyuan to his fief and live with him in the future.
