Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 168
E/D: Spirit Song
Lin Jingyuan’s pout was so protruded that it could hang a bucket, but he dared not to refute his Third Brother, and just stared at Lin Qing taking Lin Feilu to the front with hidden bitterness.
When the people saw that the one next to the Fifth Princess was replaced by the Crown Prince, they were no longer afraid, and came up to greet and salute.
Lin Feilu looked at them with her head tilted, and smiled sweetly to anyone who came up to her.
The only other princesses who studied in the imperial school were the Eldest Princess Lin Nianzhi and the Fourth Princess Lin Zhuyu. The Eldest Princess was unruly and the Fourth Princess was too dull. The Third Princess was even more unlovable, but now, the lovely Fifth Princess was unexpected and pleasant.
In just a short time, Lin Feilu had met many people, such as the second son of the prime minister, the cousin of the royal uncle’s family and the cousin of the royal aunt’s family. The composition of the family members in the ancient times was too complex, she might need to draw a family tree to sort out the relationship between these people.
Although the officials of the imperial school were informed in advance that the Fifth Princess was coming to class, they did not think a five-year-old girl was really going to study seriously. They placed her somewhere at the back, next to the two other princesses.
Just like there were no empty seats in the front row for a new exchange student, there was no empty seat for Lin Feilu in the front row of the imperial school.
Lin Qing looked around and went out to order the officials to rearrange the seat for the Fifth Princess. When he entered the hall again, Lin Feilu was already hugging her little school bag, sitting on the corner seat of the first row.
That desk was positioned far away from the others, as if it was isolated for only one person to sit.
Lin Qing frowned slightly and walked over, “Fifth Sister, I have ordered them to rearrange the seats. Come on.”
Lin Feilu shook her head and replied in a small voice, “No need to worry, I think this seat is very good. It’s near and spacious.” She blinked, but it was more intelligent than naive that was in her eyes, “Brother Crown Prince, can I sit here?”
Lin Qing knew she was smart, but also knew that she was young, and it was too early for the five-year-old to understand the bitter resentment between the countries. As the Crown Prince, he certainly could not say that “This was the seat of the Prince hostage of the Song Dynasty, you should not sit with him.”
He could only state euphemistically, “This seat was taken by someone, you don’t know him, do you want to sit next to him?”
Lin Feilu nodded happily, “Yes! I can also make new friends!”
As they were speaking, someone approached them from behind. They turned back to look, and it was the hostage prince of Song Dynasty.
He had his usual gentle and calm appearance, with a smile on his face. He walked up to them and gave a little salute. He was not surprised to see the person sitting next to him, and only greeted gently, “Your Highness, Fifth Princess.”
Lin Feilu raised her head, her eyes curved in a crescent, “It’s you!”
Lin Qing recalled that when she partnered with him in poetry writing in the Imperial College exam before, and was not surprised that they knew each other. It would be a humiliation for the Great Lin if Lin Qing said something inappropriate in front of Song Jinglan, and only gave Lin Feilu some advice and then returned to his seat.
