Villainess Wants To Turn Over A New Leaf - Chapter 244
Amidst summer, the busiest thing for the palace staff was to stab the cicadas on the trees with a bamboo pole.
It was already really hot, so the added noises from the cicadas were really annoying.
Because the weather was too hot and the palace was worried about the possibilities of the students getting heatstroke to and from class every day. Hence, the school began its daily classes an hour earlier, which meant that they would finish an hour earlier as well.
Before, the students could somewhat sleep in at times. But with the newly arranged time, the Imperial School was full of the yawns and groans of sleepy and bored students.
Lin Feilu couldn’t bear it either.
I can’t believe I have to go through a self-study period even after transmigration!
She regretted sitting in the first row because the positions in the back row where students could sleep peacefully sounded like a great idea. (QAQ)
Moreover, Little Pretty Boy didn’t attend many classes recently. Lin Feilu only found out when she inquired, but it turned out that the relationship between the Great Lin Empire and Song Empire had been a bit strained recently. The reason was because the Huai River that was situated in the middle of the two countries, had entered the flooding season. The two countries then got into a slightly tense scuffle due to the topic of water profitability that occurred annually.
At such times, Song Jinglan, who was the enemy’s royal hostage, would stay behind closed doors and reduce his sense of existence. After Lin Feilu heard this, she felt strange.
Without Little Pretty Boy seated beside her, sitting in the front row held no purpose anymore.
Lin Feilu hesitated to find Lin Qing before she euphemistically expressed her desire to swap their positions to sit at the last row.
Lin Qing, “…”
Was it because Fifth Sister, who was hardworking and studious, had become unwilling to learn after spending a long time with Fourth Brother?
While Lin Qing was heartbroken, he couldn’t hold back after seeing his fifth sister’s watery and pleading eyes. He then ordered for her position to be changed.
With the Crown Prince’s orders, Lin Feilu’s brush, ink, paper and inkstone were quickly moved to the last row. She felt slightly embarrassed as she looked at Lin Qing’s unconcealed eyes that were filled with grief. Then, she tried to cajole him, “Brother Crown Prince is the best and bestest person in the world~!”
(T/N: Once again, I know ‘bestest’ doesn’t exist, but emphasising her childlike behaviour because she’s trying to be cute and she’s 6)
Lin Jingyuan, who was very happy to finally be able to sit with his sister, Little Lu, became confused, “???!!!”
He looked at Lin Feilu incredulously, “Why?! Why has the best and bestest person in the world turned into Third Brother!”
He looked devastated as he asked, “Wasn’t it me?!”
Lin Feilu thought, this is bad.
But the car didn’t turn over that fiercely(1)— the problem wasn’t serious and she still had time to salvage the situation from escalating any further.
(T/N: A phrase to explain that a situation wasn’t entirely hopeless and was still somewhat salvageable)
Lin Jingyuan saw Little Lu turn her head as she blinked her large and gleaming eyes and said very seriously, “The Confucian Teachings not only has Confucius but also Mencius; likewise, the Buddhist monks not only have Xuanzang but also Huineng— this means that there most definitely can be two best and bestest people in the world!”
Lin Qing, “?”
Although fourth brother is not very clever, you can’t fool him like this can you, Little Fifth Princess? I can’t even continue listening to your words, let alone him…
Lin Jingyuan, “Oh yes! Your words do make some sense, Little Lu!”
Lin Qing, “???”
Forget it, what did you expect from fourth brother?
