Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 73
E/D: Spirit Song
Passing through the front hall and into the internal courtyard, she saw Consort Hui sitting on the porch. A warm furnace was placed close to her legs, and her hands were wrapped in a warm fur muff. Leaning lazily on her chair, she looked at Lin Feilu with a cold, indifferent expression.
There were also two female attendants by her sides. Looking at this scenario, it seemed like Lin Feilu was facing a panel of judges at court.
Lin Feilu gave her salutations, “Greetings, Consort Hui.”
Consort Hui curtly acknowledged her. Without changing her posture, she asked in a low voice, “You’re here for the Eldest Princess?”
Lin Feilu lowered her head. Her hood also followed her motions and drooped further down, causing the entire cloak to hang over her entire body, making her seem even smaller and thinner than before. She replied, “Yes.”
Consort Hui asked again, “What do you want with the Eldest Princess?”
Lin Feilu replied, “This little one made something and was thinking of giving it to Eldest Sister.”
Consort Hui scoffed. She raised her hand to her face and said, “My, how thoughtful of you.” She cast a condescending glance upon her and lightly said, “The Eldest Princess is currently taking her afternoon nap. Since you are being so considerate, you might as well wait here until she wakes up, so you can personally deliver your gift.”
Snow was still falling from the skies, and it was likely that it would only get worse. Even as they were talking for a while, there was already a layer of snow accumulating on Lin Feilu’s body. Being forced to endure such humiliation, the little figure seemed to be trembling under her cloak. In the end, she curtly responded with a single word, “Understood.”
A smirk appeared on Consort Hui’s lips as she looked at her for a while. As she was beginning to feel bored, she gave an order to her maidservants, “Let us retire inside, I’m exhausted.”
As soon as she left, Lin Feilu was left alone in the courtyard.
It was mostly quiet, only the sound of snow falling softly could be heard. Lin Feilu was standing with her head lowered, holding the hand stove in her sleeves, she then let out a yawn as she was feeling bored.
This Consort Hui is definitely not easy to deal with.
The main reason for this enmity was that Consort Hui had a deep grudge against Consort Xian. Since Lin Feilu first took refuge under Consort Xian’s wing; in Consort Hui’s eyes, Lin Feilu was already a part of Consort Xian’s faction.
Lin Feilu often ran around the Imperial Palace — she was so small that no one would notice her as she laid low in the bushes. As such, she managed to eavesdrop on a lot of juicy gossip that were spread around.
It was said that the reason for the animosity between the two Consorts was because of a miscarriage. In the past, Consort Hui was pregnant with her first child back when she used to live in the Eastern Wing of the Imperial Harem. It was rumored that she had a miscarriage due to certain actions caused by Consort Xian. If not for the miscarriage, that child would have been the Emperor’s first child, it may also have been his first son.
Consort Hui had the chance to give birth to the eldest imperial son but was robbed of that opportunity by Consort Xian. It was only after the current emperor had ascended the throne that she could conceive and gave birth to the eldest imperial princess.
If it had been a prince, on top of that, the eldest prince, she could have been promoted to the rank of Noble Consort by now.
It was likely that such deep hatred would not extinguish until the end of her life.
