Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 171
Lin Feilu looked up, only to see a tall and sturdy young man walking towards them from behind. He had a look in his eyes somewhat very similar to Emperor Lin’s but compared to her other brothers, his appearance was much more ordinary, except that the arrogance in his eyes was notably apparent.
When she heard Lin Jingyuan yelled “Second Brother”, she instantly recognized him as Lin Jiwen, the second prince.
Lin Jiwen was the son of Consort Shu, one of the four Consorts. Lin Feilu had always heard that the Second Prince was born with a tendency to use brute force and was very good at martial arts. His foot was badly injured last year, and thus he had to stay indoors for a few months, so she never had a chance to meet him until now.
Now that she finally met him, it seemed that the rumors were true – he was born with a brutish look.
She stood up from the cushion and bowed in a respectful manner, “Little Fifth Princess greets Second Brother.”
Although Lin Jiwen was recovering from his wounds in the palace during this period, he was still up to date with what happened in the palace. He knew that the Third Sister who always revered him in the past was punished to guard the imperial mausoleum, and he knew that the unknown Fifth Princess was now favored by the emperor, and had formed a good relationship with her brothers.
Before coming to the imperial school today, his mother, Consort Shu gave him special instructions to get closer to the Fifth Princess, since she was recently receiving a lot of His Majesty’s attention and also the favor of the other princes.
That was why he came over after class.
He overheard the argument Lin Jingyuan and Xi Xingjiang had regarding the seat. Lin Jiwen had always looked down on the incompetent captive sent by the incompetent Song Empire, and felt that even speaking a word with him would be beneath his own dignity. He blurted insensitively when he saw Lin Feilu sitting with him, “Fifth Sister is a princess of the Great Lin, how can she sit with this person? It’s an embarrassment to the royal family. I will let them rearrange her seat.”
Lin Feilu was baffled, “?”
What kind of dumb thing is this?
I know that you think he’s beneath you but isn’t it too much to insult him right in front of his face? What’s the difference between this and the dirty tricks concubines in the palace play just to fight for favoritism?
Lin Qing was the Crown Prince, and even if he didn’t want me to sit here, he only persuaded me indirectly. Who are you to trample on my pretty boy right in front of me?
Lin Feilu’s gaze suddenly turned dark.
Her lips still curled upwards, a smile plastered to her face as she looked at Lin Jiwen, asking, “So in the eyes of Second Brother, the face of the royal family of the Great Lin Empire could be humiliated so easily. I think Second Brother is underestimating our royal family.”
Lin Jiwen instinctively felt that there was something wrong with what she had said. She seemed to be picking on him. He always had a well-developed physique rather than a sharp mind, yet he had very high self-esteem. For a while, he could not figure out a way to refute this sentence, but he still subconsciously replied, “I mean…”
Before he finished speaking, Lin Feilu interjected, “Then, as you say, sitting down here will humiliate the royal family, then isn’t it the same if you looked at him? Isn’t it the same if you study under the same mentor and learn together in the class? Isn’t it the same when you drink the water from the same well, breathe the same air under the same blue sky, and look at the same moon under the night sky? If that’s the case, Second Brother would have completely humiliated the royal family.”
Lin Jiwen: “?”
Lin Jingyuan: “??”
Xi Xingjiang: “???”
