Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 221
The Empress Dowager never once participated in such cumbersome banquets because of her poor health.
Yet, the ones that were seated in the high and noble thrones were none other than Emperor Lin and the Empress Dowager herself. Lin Feilu, as the focal point of the banquet, sat conspicuously right beneath them.
The purpose of Emperor Lin’s state banquet was to let the entire world know about the existence of the Little Fifth Princess. He wanted to let everyone see how cute and innocent his dear little princess was! The more the people boasted and praised her adorable mannerisms and appearances, the happier he got.
Have a look, this unbelievably cute Little Fifth Princess is my daughter, so just drown yourselves in jealousy and envy!
Everyone finally saw the rumored ‘Fifth Princess’. Seeing that she was cute, immature and the fact that she was still a child, the various inhumane and questionable theories in their hearts diminished exponentially.
Lin Feilu was eating while listening to the ceremonial officer. He recited every detail about the gifts she received— what items were given, who presented them and so on. As the list continued, Lin Feilu felt that she truly profited immensely this time.
If I can’t remain in the palace in the future due to any unforeseen circumstances, I probably won’t have to live on the streets as long as I take some of these babies with me!
(T/N: ‘Babies’ was referring to the treasures, just in case anyone misunderstood)
As her thoughts were clouded with chaotic scenarios while she was glancing around, she caught sight of two people who portrayed a sense of eagerness through the intensity of their gazes.
Upon further inspection, the desperately-staring culprits came from a middle-aged couple sitting beneath. They looked a bit like Xiao Lan. Seeing her looking over at this moment, the woman of the couple waved her hand with excitement.
Lin Feilu pretended not to see her and withdrew her gaze as if nothing had happened.
That answer of hers basically implied, ‘you never cared about me back then, so unfortunately for you, you have no right to demand my noble attention’.
In the afternoon, the state banquet ended.
After the birthday banquet, Lin Feilu officially greeted the Emperor’s relatives.
People were always paying attention to the gossip in the palace. Those who attended the banquet eagerly spreaded the news about this rumoured princess. As a result, even the people of the empire who never heard of the Fifth Princess now knew of the existence of an adorable and petite imperial daughter.
Emperor Lin rewarded her with a lot of things and even sent a flurry of workers from the Imperial Engineering Sector to renovate the dilapidated Mingyue Palace a few days ago. Before, the Mingyue Palace did not have lavish flower gardens for the owners to enjoy. This time however, the workers from the Imperial Engineering Sector created a flower field in the courtyard of the palace in accordance with the requirements of the Fifth Princess. They even planted a variety of flowers that were newly cultivated by the Imperial Household Department.
The Fifth Princess also sketched a blueprint for them. According to the blueprint, the officials built a white fence around the flower field and made two small wooden houses for the little cat and puppy. Plus, they even created a small burrow for the rabbit, placing it beside the fence.
Although it looked strange, the Fifth Princess liked it. Hence, they had to follow her wishes.
Lin Feilu used to live in a small single-family villa with a tiny garden of her own. After adding the installations of many new items according to the imagery in her memory, she felt that the place definitely emanated its own unique aura.
It also did wonders in comforting her sense of loneliness in this strange time and space.
