Chapter 9: Chronic Poison (Part 2)

Translated by: Ai Hrist

The two maidservants looked at each other. They didn’t know if they should go or not. Lin Chujiu didn’t rush them, but she looked at the hourglass and said: “You better weigh your situation, can you afford to bear the consequences if Lin Furen (Madam Lin) gets in trouble?”

“This, this … …” The maidservants looked embarrassed and lowered their heads. The two of them were scared of getting in trouble. Finally, one of them stamped her feet and quickly ran outside to find Lin Furen (Madam Lin).

Lin Chujiu’s lips curve into a faint smile while looking at the maidservant’s drifting figure. She lazily leaned on the chair while waiting for her stepmother to come.

At this moment, she really doesn’t want to make trouble but that woman refused to let her go. If that’s the case, then she will gladly play.

Dare she to test her patience?

She would make that woman regret not completely killing her. She still wanted to be a “virtuous stepmother”? How stupid!


Lin Furen (Madam Lin) heard the maidservant’s reports. At that moment, her mind completely went blank. She wasn’t able to process the information.

Aside from herself, no one knows that Lin Chujiu has chronic poison inside her body. So, how did Lin Chujiu know this?

However, no matter how shrewd Lin Furen (Madam Lin) is, she still intentionally hides it, even when only facing a servant. She calmly said: “That child, what nonsense is she saying? Does she want our family to lose a face so she makes things up?”

Lin Furen (Madam Lin) shook her head and sighed. She got up gracefully and said, “I will go and see her. That child doesn’t want to get married, that’s why she’s saying such things.”

Even if she’s only talking with her servant, Lin Furen (Madam Lin) didn’t forget to act. No matter when it is, she will never reveal her flaws.

Lin Furen (Madam Lin) went to a spectacular looking garden with her servants. She walked elegantly, while a little bit slow pace, she arrived in Lin Chujiu’s quarter at the exact appointed time.

“Chujiu, what’s going on here? Did you only want Mother to come here and talk with you?” Lin Furen (Madam Lin) looked at Lin Chujiu with much care, like a good mother.

Lin Chujiu didn’t answer her and didn’t get up. She just faintly smiled while she looked at Lin Furen (Madam Lin).

She wanted to see how long she could act!

Lin Furen (Madam Lin) didn’t get angry. She asked a maidservant to move the chair for her to sit and looked at Lin Chujiu full of concern: “Chujiu, what’s wrong? Are you unhappy because mother didn’t come to visit you in these past few days? As you know, Mother has been busy preparing your dowry and has no time to spare because tomorrow is your wedding. But, I’ve been planning to visit you tonight with Laoye (Master). It’s just, I didn’t expect that you wanted to see Mother.”

Lin Furen (Madam Lin)looked very kindly at her. As if she really wasn’t hiding any dark secrets.

She’s really a vicious woman!

Lin Chujiu had to admit that her half-sister hadn’t even inherited half of her stepmother’s talent.

Lin Furen (Madam Lin) saw the foods on the ground, she gently sighed and said: “Chujiu, you threw the food? Don’t you like their taste? Mother wants you to eat your favorite food for the last time at home, but I didn’t expect the servants wouldn’t do a good job.”

Lin Furen (Madam Lin) tried to explain. She pushed the responsibilities to the servants to make herself seem innocent.

“Chujiu, my good daughter, … Tell mother what you would like to eat and I will ask them to prepare it immediately.” No matter how coldly Lin Chujiu looks at Lin Furen (Madam Lin), she still maintained a decent smile.

Lin Chujiu knows that silence wouldn’t work with her.

“Furen (Madam). … …” Lin Chujiu had only just opened her mouth, but Lin Furen (Madam Lin) was already shocked. She didn’t even let Lin Chijiu finish her words as she said: “Chujiu, what is going on? Where exactly did mother go wrong and made you unhappy?”

The original owner and her stepmother are very close. The original has always been calling her Niang (Mother), as if she really is her biological mother.

The original owner had long forgotten her biological mother, as she was spoiled by her stepmother. But Lin Chujiu is not the original owner. In her previous life, she had lived for more than 20 years and had never called anyone her mother. However, this Lin Furen(Madam Lin) wants to be her mother in her second life? That is not possible!

Lin Chujiu pulled her lips and coldly said: “Furen (Madama) had done well, actually an extremely great job.”

Lin Furen’s (Madam Lin) heart slightly stopped beating, her face turned stiff and looked unnatural, but she still tried to maintain her calmness: “Chujiu, what exactly happened? Why do you speak like that to Mother?”

Did this silly girl truly find out that I drugged her food?

Lin Furen (Madam Lin) secretly clenched her veil and her heart flashed in a touch of uneasiness. But, she quickly calmed herself down in front of Lin Chijiu. How would this silly girl find that out? That is simply impossible.

Thinking about it, Lin Furen (Madam Lin) relaxed. She looked at Lin Chujiu’s eyes with contempt, but she didn’t despise her. Lin Chujiu and her elder sister are both stupid and are easily duped by many.

At that time, she was just a simple girl so who would noticed that she killed her elder sister. And now, Lin Chujiu is such silly girl like her mother so it will be easy to crush her like an ant.

  1. WOW that stepmother of her (the original owner of the body she resigned). Not only she’s a white lotus but also a killer. Scary~ (•w• )

  2. What a scary person omg…..and also she isn’t THAT smart if she can’t sense that LC is different lol. Thank you for the chapter! ^.^

  3. Those with a black heart really know no shame.. I hope she’ll be able to give a very satisfying revenge~
    Thanks for translating <3

  4. Thank you! I’m incredibly grateful that you’re taking the time to translate/edit/post this series. I’m enjoying it a lot.

    One of the things that bugged me for this chapter is using Lin Furen (Madam Lin) every single time. Generally, you’d only do this once and then keep using Lin Furen, or simply use Madam Lin every time.

    Again, thank you so very much for your hardwork! Loving this series so far!

    1. hehe… sorry for those repetitive words. But, to make things easy for me. I use CTRL + V, whenever lin furen’s name exist so things will stay like that. ^.^
