Lin Mengya came to her senses from a confused state. She immediately climbed to the corner of the bed, blushing scarlet.
Oh my god, no wonder that Long Tianhao would become like this! It turned out to be the effect of the philtre.
She immediately put on an odd expression. People could talk nonsense, but they could not have medicine at random!
What was wrong with him?
Long Tianhao had long been aware that something was wrong. He was not a pubescent boy, so of course, he knew that the strong desire was unstoppable, a burst of anger rising in his heart.
The one who dared to drug him must be sick of living!
"Knock me out!" Long Tianhao growled. His eyebrows were furrowed. "They wanted to control me by using a bit philtre? In your dreams!"
"Knock... knock you out?" Lin Mengya asked. Three invisible black lines appeared on her face. "Knock you out? Are you kidding me?"
"Wait, I can help you." It was too late to look for medicine now. Right, she was able to use the bloodletting technique.
Lin Mengya took down the silver hairpin with pearls from her head. Suddenly, her black hair cascaded down like moonlight and landed on her shoulder, adding an air of shyness and laziness to her.
Long Tianhao tried his best to turn away. Maybe because of the philtre, this quick-witted girl actually looked especially pretty and glamorous.
He shook his head. "What am I thinking about?"
Lin Mengya toasted the hairpin on the fire, which was regarded as a way of disinfecting.
"Hold on, I’ll take some blood from you." Lin Mengya took Long Tianhao’s hand. A big hand with clear joints had the thin calluses left on it because of years of martial arts practice.
Lin Mengya could feel his terrifying temperature the moment she touched his slightly rough hand. She carefully pierced a small hole in Long Tianhao’s finger.
Suddenly, the dark blood flowed from the wound.
As the annoying heat gradually disappeared, Long Tianhao’s mind became clear now.
"How do you know the antidote?" Long Tianhao frowned and had more doubts about the girl in front of him.
"I... I... I’ve been very sensitive to drugs since I was young, so I’m clear about the antidotes to some commonly used poisons." Thinking for a while, Lin Mengya chose the explanation that Long Tianhao would accept the most easily.
After all, all the servants of the Lin family knew that although she was born stupid, Miss Lin was extremely sensitive to drugs. 𝑓𝑟ℯℯ𝓌ℯ𝒷𝑛ℴ𝑣ℯ𝘭.𝘤ℴ𝘮
If it weren’t for her talent, she might have been killed by her stepmother.
"Are you... OK?" Curled up in the corner of the bed, Lin Mengya did not dare to meet Long Tianhao’s gaze.
Long Tianhao nodded and walked to the imperial concubine couch opposite the bed to practice his skills and do breathing exercises. Instantly, the ambiguous atmosphere in this room disappeared, leaving them in an obscurely embarrassing state.
After five minutes, Long Tianhao, who had rested with his eyes closed, slowly opened his eyes.
The silly woman actually fell asleep on the bed.
Long Tianhao’s gaze became slightly cold, a streak of chilling light flashing through his eyes. What a good Lin family! They actually used such dirty means!
"Ye, go and find out." Long Tianhao said in a deep and frosty voice. Outside the window, a black shadow flashed from nowhere.
It was unclear how many plots had been hatched in the bustling mansion of the Lin family.
The sun rose and everything was restored to its original calm.
Lin Mengya blinked her eyes and saw a familiar figure.
The girl had a round face and big eyes. Her immature body was wrapped in a cyan linen skirt with two round buns on her head.
She was busy tidying up the bed curtain while secretly wiping her tears with her hands.
"Ruyue, is that you?" A familiar but strange name popped into her mind.
The little girl looked at her young lady on the bed with surprise and joy. "Ah, Miss Lin recognized me!"
"Miss... no, now I should call you princess. I miss you so much." Ruyue was a little girl who grew up with Lin Mengya. Although she was born in the mansion of the Lin family, her parents died early and she followed a weak master, so she had been bullied.
"Call me Miss. That’s fine. We’ve been like sisters for those years." Ruyue stared at the young lady in front of her with surprise. "Is, Is this our silly big miss?"
Seeing her pretty face and dignified temperament, Ruyue thought even the second daughter of the Lin family could not match the first one.
"Miss." Ruyue looked at her and seemed to have made a decision. She plucked up the courage to say, "Miss, please take Ruyue away with you. Ruyue would rather be a rough servant in the prince’s mansion than suffer here!"
As she said, tears streamed down her face.
In Lin Mengya’s memory, although Ruyue was a little third-class maid, she had been defending her no matter what happened.
Lin Mengya had been married for only a few days, but Ruyue had lost a lot of weight. Lin Mengya thought this time, Shangguan Qing and Lin Mengwu would go mad for Long Tianhao and she did not fall into the trap they set.
"OK, you should have been my maid that accompanies me to the Prince Yu’s Mansion. I’ll take you away." Although the prince’s mansion was not as dangerous as the mansion of the Li family, she really needed a close servant, whose origin was clear to her.
Ruyue kowtowed to her with gratitude and started to help Lin Mengya fix her face and dress up.
"Prince Yu and Princess Yu arrived!" The enuch’s shrill shout was heard in the hall of the Lin family.
Lin Mengwu and Shangguan Qing, who had been busy for a night, had to force a smile and watched the couple slowly walking in.
Prince Yu looked frosty and grim, but he was as handsome as gods. Princess Yu smiled and looked even more stunning.
Seeing this, Lin Mengwu gnashed her teeth and thought, "Why? Why does that little bitch have all wonderful things in the world?"
"I’m afraid that my humble abode would make Prince Yu and Princess Yu uncomfortable. Please pardon me." Compared with Lin Mengwu’s uncontrollably ferocious look, Shangguan Qing was worldly-wise and knew how to deal with people.
After her plot failed, a trace of anger could not be seen on her face. Instead, she looked modest and gentle.
"The acting is good, but the means are poor."
Lin Mengya silently commented in her heart, but on the surface, she pretended to be a virtuous and graceful lady and responded.
"Mother, you can’t say that. I’ve lived here for a dozen years. This is my home, so... I’ve got used to it. It’s just that I haven’t been here for a few days and there were more mosquitoes in Grace Butterfly Courtyard, which disturbed my dream and were so annoying." Lin Mengya scolded her mother and sister gently and skillfully. Except for the four of them, no one in the room knew the real meaning of her words.
"Lin Mengya, you..." Being treated as mosquitoes, the arrogant Lin Mengwu could not bear it.
However, the moment she spoke, her mother tugged at her sleeve so that Lin Mengwu swallowed her anger and stopped saying these dirty words.
If it had not been for the fact that no one was there at midnight, she would have been the laughingstock of the whole mansion because she was thrown out of the room.
