This group of palace workers didn’t immediately leave the palace after receiving 30 boards. For example, the palace maids who were involved in the abuse of the little dumpling in Duanfei’s palace were beaten 100 boards. If they couldn’t get through to the end, they would take away their corpses. If they did make it through, they would ask their relatives outside the palace to take them home. They would have to rest for at least a year and a half.
By the time the system got the wind of this news, a long time had already passed. No doubt that it was under the orders of the Villain that the gentle Lord Lin acted so cruelly. In addition, this is the time of early feudal dynasties of the ancient earth. The imperial power is highly centralized and human lives are worth less than a grass.
The system has been thinking for a long time. It felt that after coming to this world for a few days, human cub can completely survive only by throwing away everything to luck. Anyone could easily crush her, but….
The system looked at the little girl who was fighting against the villain as he was braiding her hair. She was beaming with joy thus brightening the system’s mood as well.
The system thought in silence. It’s not necessary for it to do anything now. With the villain by her side, the human cub can make up for her shortcomings without any problems!
Lin Yi had been working with the emperor for many years. Naturally, he knew the meaning behind the actions of the emperor. He wouldn’t let go of those who have really done evil. Those who had made minor mistakes had been hit with 30 boards and were kicked out of the palace. At most, they would be bedridden for ten and a half days at most.
But the old, disabled four palace workers from Jingyuan palace, especially the old Nanny. Lin Yi wanted to suggest the man to spare them. Of course, he did not dare to tell this to the emperor.
The old nanny didn’t suffer much but she still knelt at the gate of the palace and refused to go. With her were the other three other people who were assigned to Jingyuan palace and Duke Dou, who was crying miserably.
Lin Yi asked them to leave many times but they firmly refused, still waiting at the gates. The four people from Jingyuan palace were silent all the time. Duke Dou who was beaten 30 boards. For the first time after so many days, asked Lin Yi in a low voice.
“Lord Lin, we’ve known each other for a long time. I beg you. Please go and tell the emperor how I’ve been waiting on him for many years. And now, I want to wait on the little princess…”
At this moment an adult and a child were looking at each other in the LongQian palace. The little dumpling was cleaned up and dressed in her clean clothes. The color of the small cream colored clothes were lighter than that of the man’s Dragon Robe. The light cream was very soft.
The little dumpling was very satisfied with this dress. She was most satisfied with this one from all the other small clothes presented to her. It was the same color as her father’s robe!
After taking a bath, she couldn’t wait for the maid to help her put them on.
The Little dumpling stood on the carpet, without shoes on her feet, wearing little socks embroidered with rabbit heads. A sparse fragments of her hair on the top of her head was spread out. She placed her chubby hands on her waist and stared at the man in front of her discontentedly. Her big round eyes were full of anger, but still, she seemed to be in high spirits.
“Father, braid my hair!”
The little dumpling was standing in front of her father. She could burn the palace down with her little sunshine. The palace people dared not to watch this picture of the emperor, being hated by this dumpling. They all bowed their heads and wished that they were deaf.
The man was silent for a long time, afterwards he said gloomily “Ask the maid to tie them for you.”
The little dumpling was not convinced. When she was brought back by her father, she asked the sister of the palace to accompany her. Yinyin hummed resolutely, “No!”
Palace workers were scared to death. Who dared to talk to the emperor like this and say no to the emperor? Were they dissatisfied by not getting death?
But the little dumpling picked up by the emperor dared to.
After a long standoff against each other, the little dumpling curled the corners of her mouth and suddenly had an idea. She rolled up her sleeve to expose her small arm. Her little rm was pinched blue and purple. A soft milky sound was heard filled with bitterness and pain and Wei Jue felt that he was being wronged as the little dumpling shouted: “Daddy it hurts!”
He finally felt a father’s pain and the sweet milky voice of YinYin was crying out as if wronged by the heavens itself. He felt that he would start crying himself looking at this scene.
Wei Jue paused for a while and opened his mouth, “Come here.”
Palace workers: “…”
The palace workers were looking down at their toes silently. They couldn’t make any mistakes in now! If the emperor didn’t have mercy, they would be on their ways become ghosts soon!
The palace workers had never seen this side of the emperor, facing his own child. After all, there was no other little master in the harem yet. But if one thinks about it, according to the original nature of the emperor, he would surely not have been this indulgent. This situation had far broken through their imaginations of the emperor currently as a father and the one in their minds.
After hearing this, the little dumpling cheered happily. She held the headband and ribbons for braiding from the elder sister of the palace. She also picked out a beautiful little flower. She was told that it was only for adults, but the little dumpling thought that she could use it too. Her father said that YinYin was the best looking girl!
Wei Jue stared at the little dumpling’s delicate and colorful little things. He was silent for a long time. People thought that the emperor was having thoughts of giving up and regretting for a long time. The next second, the little dumpling would be thrown out of the hall.
The emperor’s face was dark, but he didn’t ask people to throw the dumpling out, but took over the beautiful flowers that the dumpling brought and held them for a long time.
The beautiful and cute things were held in the hands of the ruthless emperor. The long and clumsy hands used to reap human lives and read memorials studied the binding method for braids, and tried again and again.
The little princess is as happy as a little bird. She guided the emperor tirelessly. One father and one daughter cooperating with each other, one step at a time learning to braid. The dumpling guided her father by saying that this side is wrong and that side is painful. She needed to be a little less strict with her father.
Her tender little voice was sweet and crisp, which could make people’s hearts melt, but the palace workers were trembling uncontrollably. They dared not see or listen, and quietly backed out.
When she was going to bed in the evening, Wei Jue’s eyebrows kept twitching again and again.
He couldn’t go to Jingyuan palace. The little dumpling accepted as that her father didn’t want to take her to bed. She was used to being alone, but the little dumpling wanted to say goodnight to her father.
Because of the delay due to the little dumpling’s business, after the little dumping finished dinner and was asked by the royal doctor to have her medicine. Wei Jue dismissed the man and asked the palace maids to take her out for a walk.
He also ordered the new chief Eunuch Xiao YuZi to arrange accommodations for the girl. His words were concise and comprehensive, and his opening sentence was: “The side hall is empty, so it’s okay to arrange it for her.”
Hence, this was also a rare moment that the emperor had said so much. In the past, why would the emperor want to arrange anything for anyone by himself? Why bother so much about the details?
Eunuch Xiao Yuzi, was in a state of panic. As soon as the personal maids of the little princess led her out of the house, he brought several palace maids to tidy up the side hall of the emperor’s bedroom in LongQian palace.
He also specially found the softest quilt in the warehouse. She was a child with tender skin. She was also a person who the emperor attaches great importance to now. It was uncertain whether she was the emperor’s own flesh and blood but she should sleep in the best bed and cover with the best quilt!
Although Mr. Xiao YuZi was not as qualified as Mr. Dou, but because he had always been by the master’s side, he could see things clearly and had his own rules and regulations when dealing with things.
He had been studying with Chief Eunuch beside him. Without the pride clouding his judgement, he could easily see how tolerant the emperor was to the lovely little princess.
Mr. Xiao YuZi was worried about how to save the old chief Eunuch but he dare not mention it infront of the emperor. Everyone serving the emperor knew that he would be angry if anyone dared to speak more. They would be with the Old Chief Eunuch tomorrow.
The little dumpling was very happy. Her father promised to braid her hair tomorrow. She touched the two twisted braids on her small head and smiled contentedly. She quietly shared her happiness with the elder sister: “Sister Xiao Hua, these braids were made by my father.”
The palace maid Xiao Hua was helpless. Seeing the little princess walking in front of her and turning to show off the pigtails. This move had been going back and forth several times. Her mouth was skillful and this should be said “These pigtails are very beautiful. The emperor is very nice to the little princess Yinyin!”
The little girl turned around without any reserve, her small mouth stealthily opened, “Elder sister Xioa Hua’s eyes are very good!”
Palace maid XiaoHua: “…”
It’s good for you to be so carefree and happy!
Let’s see what Xiao Hua was seeing currently. The two braids that the emperor had made for the little princess were so ugly that they could make people angry just looking at them. They were crooked and twisted, loose and scattered, and her hair was not even combed properly. This made the originally sparse and fragmented hair even less like that of a human being.
What’s more, under the little dumpling’s strong willingness, she still had a flower on the top of her head that the Emperor himself had put in. It was a pink peach flower. The flower was the most popular style this year, and its workmanship was exquisite and delicate. It had been put on the head of the little dumpling, and with that messy hair, it’s hard to say how that looks honestly.
But the emperor and the little princess were very satisfied?
After finishing up the braid, Xiao Hua was lucky to see the look of the emperor’s face with a frown and she tactfully nodded her head. When the little dumpling asked if she was looking good, the emperor, a ruthless tyrant sitting by her side with his cold handsome face, who would have dare not to nod their heads???
Let us take a look at the happy appearance of the little princess now. The little flower is a little disturbed right now. Maybe she’s not sure about her hairstyle currently??
According to the previous agreement, daddy will tie her hair up tomorrow morning. Yinyin should go to bed after walking, with the sister of the palace. But the little dumpling thought of dad and felt like she had forgotten something.
She had been thinking about it for a long time in the room, and she couldn’t remember that she hadnt kissed her father goodnight! It was said that people who gave a good night kiss will be happier and have a sweet dream when they fall asleep!
“Uncle system, I can’t go to sleep until I give my father happiness!”
When the system recalled the first life of the dumpling, the human cub also wanted to kiss good night to Luo Sheng. How persistent she was to kiss good night? Now she had already forgotten everything from her first life but didn’t forget this.
Because of the dumpling’s delay, Wei Jue went to the Royal study after having dinner, and approved most of the high stack of memorials on the table. A little eunuch came forward and reminded of the time before he put down his pen.
Wei Jue was not an emperor with good character, even some people called him a tyrant behind his back but he was indeed the most capable and courageous emperor of the Wei family since generations. The courtiers always lamented that if the emperor had more humane feelings, he would be a wise king rarely seen in a century!
“Does the emperor wish to go to bed?”
Mr. Xiao Yuzi wanted to ask if he wanted to turn over? It seems that it has been several months since the emperor went back to the Imperial harem. When Jue put his hand on it, he swallowed his words and put out the light carelessly, leaving only one bright light.
When he was sleeping in the palace, it was dark. Wei Jue was a martial artist. He was not happy to have people watch him during the night when he was sleeping. The palace was so quiet that it was frightening.
Yinyin was startled. Suddenly, she was a little nervous. She grabbed the clothes and asked the system, “Uncle system, why is it so dark?”
The system hummed. The little girl has been squatting here secretly for a long time, just to kiss the villain father good night. What could it say?
The curtains by the foot of the bed rustled faintly. The man looked at her with his eyebrows twisted, and his eyes were sharp like a sword. “Come out.”
The room suddenly quieted down, and Wei Jue looked at the small girl hiding like a mouse hiding and pulled the veil apart with his right hand.
Little dumpling was squatting there in her little nightwear. She seemed to be frightened by his sudden action. Her eyes were covered with her two small hands, and she looked around with her big watery eyes, and her mouth became O-shaped.
Wei Jue just looked at the frightened little dumpling. After a while, the little dumpling seemed to think of something. Her eyes narrowed into a slit. Her mouth opened and closed and she said in delight, “Since I can’t see. My father can’t see me either.”
Wei Jue: “…”
One father and one daughter, one standing tall and one frightened. Wei Jue looked like a tall tree from the perspective of the little dumpling, as if he was higher than the roof.
The small girl was squatting on the ground, no different from a glutinous rice ball, and nervously moved her feet like a slow-moving snail.
Yinyin looked up with her little head, and her neck was sore and numb. Seeing her father standing still and looking at her in the dark, she puts her hand down in frustration. Her little mouth pouted, “Daddy……”
