After Lin Feilu finished speaking, she carefully raised her head and looked at Lin Jingyuan’s expression. She stretched out her two soft fingers and grabbed the corner of his sleeves. She shook it gently and asked in a low voice: “Brother Jingyuan, do you also hate my brother like others do?”
Lin Jingyuan immediately said in a loud voice: “Of course not! He is not only your brother, but also mine brother. How old is he?”
Lin Feilu’s sweet smile once again appeared on her face: “My brother is seven years old this year.”
Lin Jingyuan proudly raised his chin as he said: “I am one year older than him, so I will be his big brother. He is my sixth brother. Why would I hate him?”
Lin Feilu’s eyes immediately brightened and her hand was still holding the corner of his sleeve. She said softly and sweetly, “Brother Jingyuan is so nice. He is the best person I have ever met!”
Lin Jingyuan felt so good that he almost reached heaven.
Then three of them walked to the side hall together and the little eunuch who was following said sullen: “Your Highness…”
Lin Jingyuan turned around and glared at him: “You are not allowed to follow me in!”
In the courtyard of the side hall, Xiao Lan was still doing needlework with Yun Yan. When she suddenly saw her daughter walking hand in hand with the fourth prince, everyone in the courtyard was frightened. Lin Feilu said calmly: “Mother, forth elder brother has come to play with me.”
Lin Jingyuan waved his small hand: “Continue your work, no need to pay attention to me.”
They looked at each other in dismay and finally sat back. They watched the three children running all over the house.
Lin Jingyuan asked unhappily as soon as he entered the house: “Why didn’t you call me like you did before?”
Lin Feilu smiled. She stood on her tiptoes, got close to his ear and said in a soft voice: “That’s our secret.”
Lin Jingyuan: Ah! My heart is going to melt!!!
The small room that Lin Feilu lived in was very simple, without any extra decorations. Compared with the Changming Hall where he lived, it was almost like a slum. However, it was clean. The room still had the unique sweet fragrance that belonged to the girls, not greasy but sweet.
While he was looking around, Lin Feilu whispered to Lin Zhanyuan, “Brother, go get some persimmons.”
Although Lin Zhanyuan was a little reluctant to go, he still obeyed his sister’s words and immediately ran out to get the persimmons. Lin Feilu went to the bookshelf, climbed up on a stool, and picked out a book.
These books were brought in by Xiao Lan when she entered the palace. She was quite a talented woman at that time, but it was a pity that she ended up in this palace. These books looked a bit old.
She picked a copy of “The Analects” written by Confucius. After she got down, she took out the Malus spectabilis flower in her arms and put it in the pages of the book. She then closed the book.
Lin Jingyuan curiously asked: “What is this?”
Lin Feilu gave him the book: “Use this Malus spectabilis as bookmark. Even if it withers, luck within it will be sealed here forever.”
It was the first time that Lin Jingyuan heard the word “bookmark”. He felt that his fifth sister was really different!
He had always hated reading. He had a headache whenever he saw books. For this reason, he was often scolded by his father and mother. However, at this moment he couldn’t wait to take this “The Analects”, open the page where Malus spectabilis flower was placed, and then smell it but he had to reluctantly keep it for now.
Lin Feilu selected the largest and reddest one and then handed it to Lin Jingyuan: “Brother Jingyuan, eat persimmons.”
