Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 166
E/D: Spirit Song
Tiandong asked with curiosity, “Your Highness, is the Fifth Princess shy? I think her ears were red.”
Song Jinglan glanced at him. His glare was not cold, but Tiandong seemed to have realised something and stopped speaking altogether.
With the return of spring, the bitter cold presence of winter had gradually waned, and finally lost its trace on a sunny day. Although the sun was still cold, the people in the palace had changed out of their winter clothes.
Lin Feilu had also taken off her lovely and invincible robe – the red cloak, and changed into a beautiful dress made by Xiao Lan. There was no shortage of brocade in Mingyue Palace lately and Xiao Lan had made various styles of dresses for her. Women would never complain of having too many clothes! Especially girls, too!
Her birthday was at the end of spring, and she would be turning six years old this year. Xiao Lan and the others had always celebrated her birthday the past years with a bowl of noodles; but this year would definitely not be as quiet as it was in the past.
Pengman had been serving Emperor Lin for many years. He was conscious minded and understood the emperor’s thoughts easily. He mentioned lightly in Emperor Lin’s ear that the Fifth Princess’ birthday was approaching when spring began.
A trace of guilt surfaced in his heart when Emperor Lin recalled how he had ignored the Little Fifth Princess five years ago. Immediately, he waved his hand and passed down the order – the birthday banquet for the Fifth Princess must be carried out on a large scale! It was going to be loud! It was going to be grand!
Many people in the palace had never even seen his lovely Little Fifth Princess, and the commoners in the world did not even know the existence of his Fifth Princess. He wanted to announce the Little Fifth Princess’ title and existence during this birthday banquet.
Therefore, the palace began to prepare for the Fifth Princess’ birthday banquet two months in advance. The palace servants finally realised that the Fifth Princess was now in Emperor Lin’s favor, and no one could dare to ignore her presence anymore.
What was stranger than fiction was that not a sliver of the love Emperor Lin showered the Fifth Princess was shared with the one who gave birth to her; Honorable Lady Xiao Lan. Yet the Fifth Princess herself was also very strange – she must be very intelligent to be able to obtain his Majesty’s favor, but she never spoke a few words on behalf of her mother.
Everyone had different opinions; some felt regretful, some were indifferent and some took pleasure in it, but the parties aforementioned were not affected at all.
Xiao Lan, too, was perfectly at peace. She had never liked socialising, and now that no one dared to cause her any trouble when she went out and about, her life was as peaceful as it was before. Lin Feilu, on the other hand, who had recently obtained permission from Emperor Lin to enter the imperial school, was enthusiastically making preparations for it.
Large-scale NPC gathering place, here I come!
She was very familiar with studying, from kindergarten to graduating from master’s, but she still felt excited to be able to experience it again in a different time.
Generally, a royal child should be accompanied by another child serving in one’s study, or even a study partner. However, Lin Feilu did not want any, and only asked Xiao Lan to sew her small school bag, filling it up with ink, paper and inkstone from the Imperial Household Department. On the first day of imperial school, She and Songyu went to Changming Palace together to wake up Lin Jingyuan and go to school together.
