Chapter 197: Lu Liangwei Staggered
Lin Qingyuan said through gritted teeth, “Since my parents won’t believe me, I’ll just die in front of them. Let’s see if they’ll regret then.”
Lu Liangwei nodded. “That’s a good idea.”
“What?” Lin Qingyuan was stunned.
“You said you want to die, so I’ll grant your wish,” Lu Liangwei raised her eyebrows and said earnestly.
Lin Qingyuan was shocked. When she saw that Lu Liangwei did not seem to be joking, her heart went cold. “Are you serious?”
“Of course I am. Don’t you want to make your parents regret it? Dying is indeed an extremely useful and ruthless method,” Lu Liangwei said indifferently.
Lin Qingyuan’s face turned pale. “But I really don’t want to die…” She was still so young and had yet to enjoy her life. How could she die just because of that jerk?
Lu Liangwei knew what she was thinking about, and the corners of her mouth lifted. “So you don’t want to die?”
Lin Qingyuan snapped, “Who would want to die? I haven’t lived enough yet.”
Lu Liangwei shrugged. “I was going to help you. Since you don’t want to die, I can’t do anything about it.”
Lin Qingyuan bit her lip. “Isn’t there another way?”
“Of course there is.”
“What is it?”
“If you destroy Chen Xuping’s reputation, your parents will naturally disapprove of you marrying him.”
“But Chen Xuping is always so cautious. How can I ruin him?” Lin Qingyuan said glumly.
“That’s why I said dying is the easiest and most effective way.” Lu Liangwei gave her a meaningful wink.
Lin Qingyuan frowned. “Do you want me to die so badly?”
“Yes,” Lu Liangwei replied without hesitation.
Lin Qingyuan, “…”
What was this sudden bitterness?
Lu Liangwei said solemnly, “Think about it properly and give me an answer before leaving the palace. It’s not so easy to prepare fake death medicine as it takes time.” With that, she stood up and headed toward the waterside pavilion. “We should go back soon, or else people are going to be suspicious.”
Lin Qingyuan nodded blankly, still pondering what Lu Liangwei had said just now.
When they reached the waterside pavilion, an idea suddenly came to her, and her eyes lit up. She jogged to catch up to Lu Liangwei, shouting angrily, “Lu Liangwei, you’re terrible. You didn’t wait for me and made me step in poop…”
Her words were so shocking that Lu Liangwei staggered and tripped over the steps, stumbling into the waterside pavilion.
When Lu Liangwei finally steadied herself, she raised her head only to see everyone in the pavilion casting her strange looks.
From their gazes, it seemed like she was the one who stepped in poop.
Lu Liangwei, “…”
Zhao Qian, who was standing behind Long Yang, almost failed to hold in his laughter.
As Long Yang looked at the girl standing at the waterside pavilion entrance with a rare, stunned expression, a smile flashed across his black eyes.
At this moment, Lu Liangwei suddenly pinched her nose with one hand and stopped Lin Qingyuan from coming in behind her with another.
Lin Qingyuan paused in her tracks and looked at her in confusion. “What are you doing?”
Lu Liangwei lowered her head and glanced at her shoes, saying implicatively, “Didn’t you say you stepped in something? Shouldn’t you go clean up before coming in so you won’t affect everyone’s appetite?”
Lin Qingyuan, “…”
Sensing everyone’s weird gazes falling on her, her face turned green then red. She finally understood what it meant to shoot herself in the foot.
“Excuse me, please take Miss Lin to wash her feet,” Lu Liangwei turned her head and said to the palace maid beside her.
