Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 220
Noble Consort Xi had gifted her a treasured sword. The length of the sword was almost similar to her current height, but Noble Consort Xi mentioned that the little girl could use it in the future when she grows up. It’s just that the appearance of the sword was rather dull and the hilt wasn’t all that impressive either— looking completely different from the beautiful sapphires in the TV series she watched before transmigrating.
After hearing Little Bean’s unsatisfied mutter, Noble Consort Xi gave her a faint glance, “What do you expect those fancy things to do? This sword has cut through 3000 soldiers and horses of the Yong Kingdom! It cut down two generals as if they were made out of butter..”
Before she finished speaking, Lin Feilu threw the sword far away with a clang. Then, her small face paled in fright.
Noble Consort Xi, “…” She glared at her, unforgiving, “Even evil spirits would fear it if the sword was out of its sheath! Pick it up and put it on the beam of the bed to ward off evil spirits!”
Lin Feilu, “Boohoo…”
At that moment, she realized where the Noble Consort’s monicker, the ‘Queen of Hell’ came from.
In addition to the nine-layered streamer lantern, Lin Jingyuan added a block of gilt ink into his gift list after listening to her guesses the other day. When the ink was implemented into writing, there would be some gilt that would be visible on the words themselves. This made it appear very beautiful and it even carried a faint scent of a particular fragrance.
Lin Ting gifted her a blue-eyed Persian cat which was secretly brought in from outside the palace. Lin Feilu suspected that he wanted to open a zoo in the palace.
Lin Qing gifted her a guqin. The strings were made out of phoenix wood and ice silk, making its appearance look very extraordinary.
(T/N: A guqin is a traditional Chinese instrument that makes a really oriental-style sound when the strings are plucked. Think of it as the Eastern version of the harp unique in its own way)
Lin Nianzhi gave her a nine-piece linked puzzle—a super complicated one. Lin Feilu glanced at it and felt that she should not be able to solve it for at least two or three years.
Xi Xingjiang gifted her a bow and some arrows. At first glance, she exclaimed, “What a great bow!” but Lin Feilu couldn’t really lift it as it was too heavy.
People from the Xi family were way too terrifying. She was afraid that Xi Xingjiang would say, “This bow had once killed 10,000 soldiers,” Hence, she hurriedly asked Songyu to bring the bow and the sword that Noble Consort Xi had gifted into the side palace.
The gifts from the other palaces were similar— there were jewellery, brocade and gold jade that had almost blinded Lin Feilu from all its glitter.
The birthday banquet was set at noon. After receiving the gifts, Songyu and Qingyan began to dress and enhance Lin Feilu’s appearance. The typical protagonist of a large-scale state banquet like this would be dressed up in grand costumes, but Lin Feilu was far too small and too short. Emperor Lin demanded the people from the Embroidery Workshop to dress her accordingly. After wearing the clothes, her tiny frame was entirely masked by the heavy and feathered clothing while her legs were nearly incapable of walking due to the added weight.
As a last resort, she could only change into a normal dress that appeared to be a bit more sophisticated than her casual wear. Her usual little side buns were let down and were combed neatly as well.
After receiving the gifts from the other palaces in the morning, the birthday banquet was about to commence. It was time for her to receive gifts from her royal relatives who attended the banquet.
