Lin Feilu’s eyes brightened and a happy smile appeared on her beautiful face. She reached out to take the bamboo basket, but her body staggered because it was too heavy.
Lin Jingyuan’s eyes were quick and he quickly extended his hand to hold the basket. He said unhappily, “Let your maid take it.”
Qing Yan was still on the kneeling position for fear of angering the fourth prince. She did not expect that things would end up this way. She immediately stood up, took the bamboo basket and retreated to one side.
Lin Feilu put her hands together, tilted her head and smiled sweetly at Lin Jingyuan. The sunlight spilled through the red persimmons and fell on her face. Her dimple seemed to be full of warmth and sweetness. “Thank you, brother.”
Lin Jingyuan felt a little embarrassed by seeing her smile.
He was accustomed to seeing his eldest sister’s craftiness and his third sister’s rudeness. Moreover, his mother, Consort Xian, did not get along with the eldest princess’s mother, Concubine Hui. He actually disliked his older sister, let alone the eldest sister’s little follower, the third sister.
(T/N: In Chinese, “Eldest Princess” has two meaning. First is the sister of the Emperor while the other is the Emperor’s first daughter.)
However, the fifth princess, who he had never seen before, was completely different. She was tender and weak. She looked beautiful and cute when she laughed. She wanted to eat persimmons but was scared. She aroused his desire to protect her.
Lin Feilu thought of something. She took out a Begonia flower picked from the imperial garden and handed it over to him seriously, “Mother said that not to reciprocate is against etiquette. Since the brother gave me persimmon, I will give you this double leaf Begonia. Double leaf Begonia brings luck and is very rare. “
At the end, she looked at the Begonia flower reluctantly and then resolutely put it into Lin Jingyuan’s hands.
The flower had been in her arms for a while and its petals were stained with her body temperature. When it was placed in Lin Jingyuan’s palm, it felt soft and warm.
Lin Jingyuan’s ears turned red.
What a peerless little cutie! Such a rare lucky flower was actually given to me. She was obviously very reluctant, but she did not hesitate at all!
Lin Feilu waved to him after giving flowers and said sweetly, “Goodbye, brother.”
She walked out with Qing Yan. When she reached the arch, she secretly turned around and smiled at Lin Jingyuan.
Under the autumn sun and in the courtyard full of red persimmons, Lin Feilu’s smile was especially enchanting. It was three-point shy and seven-point cute. Looking at her smile, Lin Jingyuan felt as if his heart had melted.
After walking far away, Qing Yan who was in cold sweat all this time finally heaved a sigh of relief. She looked at the persimmon in her hand and then to the little princess who was acting as if nothing had happened. She still couldn’t help asking, “Princess, does double leaf Begonia really bring luck? Why haven’t I heard of it? “
Lin Feilu didn’t answer, only smiled.
I haven’t heard of it either.
She thought to herself.
The persimmons in the bamboo basket were heavy, big and red. In past years, they couldn’t get so many persimmons. However, they occasionally picked one or two to relieve their craving. There were many rules in the palace. Xiao Lan had to be especially careful because of her situation. She never left the courtyard because of food.
However, today these persimmons were given by the fourth prince. There were dozens of them. Not only could they be eaten till their stomach was full, but the persimmon peels could be sun-dried and chilled. If they couldn’t finish them today, they could also marinate them to make persimmons cake. The little princess and the sixth prince would definitely like snacks.
Qing Yan didn’t think there was anything wrong with her princess today. Instead, she felt that the little princess was just too cute and any normal person would like her!
