Concubine Ling’s face was expressionless, and the fingers on her right hand tapped lightly on the table.
She’d originally planned to wait for a while, and when the fifteenth prince got used to her, she’d think of a way to deal with Li Huairou. But now, she’d been named in front of the empress dowager. If she did something to her, it would not be good.
What was more, although the fifteenth prince was young, he seemed to be a determined person. If Concubine Ling rashly touched the people around him and elicited his disgust, it would not be good.
He was her elder sister’s only flesh and blood, all her hope. She really didn’t want to make him feel bad if it wasn’t necessary.
Forget it. She was only a little palace maid—as long as she didn’t interfere with her plan, let’s just keep her! Besides, didn’t she still have a weakness? No, it should be two!
Concubine Ling smiled confidently. She was sure that she could control Li Huairou in her palm.
Unknowingly, Li Huairou had escaped death.
Li Huairou picked some of the things and kept them for herself. She planned to ask Xiao Dengzi to see if there was a way to send them out of the palace to Jiang Man.
Li Huairou set a policy for herself: to peacefully stay in Yongshou Palace, to not stand up, and to not meddle in the business of others—but unfortunately, sometimes, the trees would prefer calm but the wind would not subside.
[Shu yu jing er feng bu zhi (树欲静而风不止) means that things don’t occur as people wish]
“Huairou, Noble Consort Jia and Noble Consort Chun are here. They want to see you, you should quickly go see them,” Qingxin said softly. Then she instructed, “Be careful.”
Li Huairou went away blankly.
“This slave has seen Noble Consort Jia, Noble Consort Chun, and Concubine Lin. Greetings, all concubines.” After Li Huairou went through the door, she didn’t even see anyone clearly, directly kneeling on the ground and kowtowing. Being a slave was not good at all; she had no control over her own movements, as she had to kowtow to everyone she meet.
When the fifteenth prince became emperor, she wouldn’t need to kowtow when she saw people, like just now! While kowtowing, she was inwardly calculating how long it would be until the fifteenth prince took the throne.
“Look up and let this concubine see what kind of dexterous person the empress dowager has praised?” A soft voice resembling the spring water to the south of the Yangtze River sounded out.
According to her words, Li Huairou slowly raised her head so that while the others could see her clearly, she could also see the others clearly. At the top sat two beauties in palace outfits. One was extraordinary, tender and slender, like the most beautiful peach blossom in spring to the south of the Yangtze River, and the other was gorgeous, bright, and generous, as if she were the most splendid rose in the imperial garden.
It seemed that these two were Noble Consort Chun and Noble Consort Jia.
It was Noble Consort Chun who had just spoken. She looked at Li Huairou carefully and was relieved. She could only be called delicate; she wasn’t the type that the emperor liked.
Noble Consort Chun smiled slightly, raised her teacup, and drank.
Noble Consort Jia was more straightforward. “Nothing more than this. This concubine was thinking about what kind of character she was!”
Wei Qingxue smiled. “Huairou was originally a little palace maid. After serving my fifteenth prince for several years, the fifteenth prince couldn’t leave her, and that’s why I keep her. She doesn’t have any strengths, only loyalty!”
There were so many servants in the palace, and loyal servants were rare.
Noble Consort Jia became interested. “So it’s you. Come here. This concubine asks you, was it hard work in Huanyin Palace?”
Li Huairou took a few steps forward. “Answering Noble Consort Jia, it was not hard work.” Then she stopped talking. It was better to speak less.
Noble Consort Jia asked again, “What did you do in Huanyin Palace?”
“Answering Noble Consort Jia, this slave was serving the master.” Then there were no more words.
Noble Consort Jia was a little disappointed. She glanced at Li Huairou—it was really boring. Then she sat up straight and looked at the surrounding furnishings, her tone a bit sour: “The emperor truly favors Ling-meimei. This hollow, pastel porcelain vase is the emperor’s favorite, and he actually gave it to meimei.”
Noble Consort Chun also followed Noble Consort Jia’s line of sight, and she also saw the hollow, pastel porcelain vase. She smiled lightly. “What’s the matter? In the early years, the emperor also rewarded this concubine with a similar one. If Jia-meimei likes it, jiejie will send it to you.”
Is this showing that she’s more favored than her own self?
Noble Consort Jia felt a little unhappy deep down, but she said with a smile on her face, “How could meimei take advantage of jiejie? It’s just a passing comment.”
“The others are quite ordinary. This concubine’s favorite is the picture of spring. I didn’t expect that the emperor would also reward meimei,” Noble Consort Chun said softly, her eyes falling on the spring painting.
“Really? I don’t understand this. The emperor said it was good, and the concubine hung it.” Wei Qingxue didn’t like the act of pretending to be a snake. She knew how to stimulate these ladies.
Sure enough, Noble Consort Chun’s expression sank like a spring breeze, and she stared at Wei Qingxue in a daze. She finally threw out a sentence: “Wasteful!” And she got up and left.
[Bao tian tian wu (暴殄天物) means recklessly wasting God’s good gifts]
Noble Consort Jia held back her laughter, got up, and left. “Chun-jiejie, please wait, jiejie!”
“This concubine respectfully sends off Noble Consort Chun and Noble Consort Jia.”
“This slave respectfully sends off Noble Consort Chun and Noble Consort Jia.“
After sending off Noble Consort Chun and Noble Consort Jia, Wei Qingxue got up and sat down. She said with a smile, “Get up, you did a good job today. Go back.”
Li Huairou kowtowed, got up, and stepped back.
Oh god, do all these bitches talk like this? However, the female lead’s style was obviously different from that of the others. Seeing Noble Consort Chun and Noble Consort Jia look shriveled, it was really—it was cool to hear.
However, now was not the time to think about these things. The most important thing was to quickly make a knee pad. Otherwise, her knees would not be protected.
After Li Huairou returned to her room, she immediately rummaged around in the cabinet, found a piece of leather—she didn’t know what kind it was—and started to make knee pads.
After the fifteenth prince came back, looking at what she was doing, he was a little curious. “Sister Rou, what are you doing?”
Li Huairou couldn’t say that her knees hurt too much and that’s why she was using a knee pad to protect her knees. She put down her hands, looking for words to evade the past. “Your Highness, didn’t the empress dowager reward this slave with a few things today? Some of them aren’t bad. Your Highness, go and see which one you like. This slave will make clothes for you.”
The fifteenth prince’s attention was immediately diverted. “Sister Rou, please make me a riding suit. Wenda said that I’d be able to practice riding and shooting in a few days.”
Li Huairou was stunned. Her needlework skills were very ordinary. In the past, there was no other choice in the Huanyin Palace, and they wouldn’t need to meet others, so she could make the clothes herself. Now, in Yongshou Palace, there was a person in charge of the fifteenth prince. If she had to make the clothes, it was estimated that it would take a month or two before she could barely make clothes that were appropriate to show other people. The fifteenth prince said that he wanted to wear it in a few days, so she probably couldn’t do anything about it.
“Alright. Your Highness, let’s see which material you like first,” Li Huairou said, looking at the fifteenth prince’s expectant eyes.
The fifteenth prince eagerly went to see the material, then chose the ones he liked, then went to see Concubine Ling to ask for his homework.
Leaving Li Huairou to look at the pile of materials and worry.
Caixia came over. “I’ll help you!”
Li Huairou’s eyes lit up. “Thank you!”
“I’m doing it for His Highness!” Caixia said, glancing at her.
Li Huairou giggled, “I know.”
Then she took out paper and an eyebrow pencil and started designing the riding outfit.
“You are doing…” Caixia swallowed the words back because she’d already seen what Li Huairou was doing.
“What do you think? Does it look good? Will His Highness like it?” Li Huairou excitedly said to Caixia, holding the finished design draft.
Caixia nodded. “When His Highness comes back, you can just ask him.”
The fifteenth prince liked it very much. But when he learned that the clothes had been made by Caixia, he was a little disappointed. “Sister Rou, can’t you make them for me? I want to wear the clothes you made.”
Li Huairou glanced at Caixia with some embarrassment. “Your Highness, you know this slave;s needlework…” But after seeing the fifteenth prince’s disappointed face, she couldn’t speak. “This way, this riding suit was made in a hurry, so I had Caixia make it for you. The servant will make you other clothes, but you know my craftsmanship. So it’s estimated that you will have to wait for a long time before you can wear it.”
The fifteenth prince was very happy. “Okay, no matter how long, I will wait!” Then he took Caixia’s hand and said, “Sister Caixia, don’t be angry. The clothes you made are very beautiful, and I like them very much.”
Caixia was originally a little unhappy, but now it was all gone. “This servant knows, Your Highness. Don’t worry.”
But when he washed up, the fifteenth prince still only had Li Huairou come alone, and he kept telling Li Huairou about what he’d been studying in the study today and what he’d eaten.
At the end, he sighed, “Sister Rou, I’ve eaten a lot of delicious food these days, but I still miss the ten thousand taels of gold. Sister Rou, can I still eat it in the future?”
Li Huairou thought about it seriously and shook her head. “Your Highness forgot—if you eat too much of that food, you will fart.” The last two words were attached to the fifteenth prince’s ear. “It was very indecent, so you can’t eat it anymore.”
The fifteenth prince remembered the past, covered his mouth, and snickered.
Li Huairou also laughed.
There were obviously a lot of people in the room, but these two people could turn a deaf ear and enjoy the moment.
Over there, Wei Qingxue laughed after hearing Xiao Dengzi’s return. “Ten thousand taels of gold?” Then she shook her head. She naturally knew what this ten thousand taels of gold was—the folk sweet potato, which was rarely eaten by nobles in the palace. At that time, Huanyin Palace was a cold palace, and there was no money for food and clothing. It was not bad to be able to have something to eat.
Even in those years, that little palace maid had still taken good care of the fifteenth prince, didn’t she? It was just as simple as having enough food and clothing, as well as psychological companionship and relief.
The fifteenth prince was positive and optimistic, not at all like a child who’d grown up in a cold palace.
It was also to the credit of that palace maid.
Anyway, if there was a chance in the future, just reward her with gold!
“What she wants to send out, just help her send it out,” Wei Qingxue said.
Outside the palace, Jiang Man was learning to read the ledger when suddenly the little maid, Cui’er, came in. “Madam, Master is back.” Jiang Man hurried out to greet him.
Wei Qingqi came in with a bag and stuffed it into Jiang Man’s arms.
“What did you buy? I’m not lacking anything,” Jiang Man said angrily. Wei Qingqi was ten years older than her, but his appearance was not bad. His family background was okay, and he was good to her. Although there was a mother-in-law in the family, when she was old, they could just take her as a decoration. Jiang Man was still quite satisfied with her life.
“My uncle sent it. He said it was sent from the palace. It’s probably your sworn sister!” Wei Qingqi took a sip of tea, then took a box out from his arms. “This is what I bought for you. ”
Jiang Man first opened the box that Wei Qingqi had sent, and when she opened it, she saw that it was a golden hairpin. She immediately smiled. “You can help me put it on.”
Wei Qingqi smiled, took the hairpin, and looked at it for a long time. Then she found a suitable position to insert it. “It’s so beautiful!”
Jiang Man also smiled.
Wei Qingqi looked at the baggage next to him. “Why don’t you take a look at what your sister gave you?”
“What’s the hurry? There is time,” Jiang Man said with a smile.
