After sweeping and holding the big broom for such a long time in the afternoon, the little girl’s hands began to blister, she felt numb and painful. Yinyin refused the medicine from the maid and ran to her dad with tears in her eyes. She spread out her palm for him to see.
Tears poured down like waterfall and she took a deep breath and said in a low voice. “Dad, it hurts.”
The little dumpling was only three years old, and even walked like a duck. In the eyes of the young emperor, Wei Jue, she was more like a newborn baby. She was not only young and innocent but also thin and tender. Now her palm was red and there were several small blisters.
WeiJue asked someone to call the doctor. The maid, Xiao Hua, cleverly put the bandages on the little dumpling’s hands wisely. “This is the medicine that Liu Taiyi prescribed to protect the little princess. It works on superficial wounds.”
It was just that the little princess had hurt her hand, not that she was sick. Calling the doctor to come here was also to smear a little medicine on the wound. Wei Jue took the medicine, hesitated for a while, and gave the ointment to the little dumpling, “Apply it.”
Yin Yin’s eyes widened, and she said in astonishment, “Dad, won’t you apply the medicine for me?”
In the little dumpling’s eyes, if one was hurt, they needed to find their Daddy. It was astonishing for her that her daddy won’t apply medicine for her.
She pushed the ointment over and snorted. Little YinYin took it for granted that her dad will apply the medicine: “Of course, only Dad can apply it!”
Her small hands spread out and stretched forward in front of her father, “If you don’t I will start crying!”
Wei Jue: “…”
Chief Eunuch Xiao Yuzi wiped his sweat. He could bet a piece of gold leaf that he shouldn’t look at the emperor’s face now. He will take and apply the medicine for the little princess.
“Dad is the best, the best person in the world!”
“Dad is as beautiful as flowers in Yinyin’s heart!”
Seeing her father’s delay in applying the medicine, the little dumpling wandered back and forth in the same place for two times with her hands behind her back. Flattering words sprang out of her mouth one by one, but she was very sincere, which was obviously what the little dumpling thought.
Wei Jue: “…”
Like flowers, Mr. Xiao Yuzi secretly looked up at the cold face of the emperor. He couldn’t bear to look directly at His Majesty’s face which was the same as flowers in the little princess’s heart.
The man’s eyebrows jumped. He held down his expression forcefully and said, “Come here.”
Yinyin immediately stopped her small steps, looked up with a sweet smile and ran to her father.
At the same time, she said to the system: “Uncle system, you see, my father likes me to praise him!”
When the medicine was ready, the girl happily wanted to give her father a reward, “Thank you daddy!” Then she kissed his face, her voice was crisp and loud.
Wei Jue: “…”
Some time later….
The sun was warm this afternoon. The man in the imperial study put down his pen and called for the servants. Mr. Xiao Yuzi was the one on call. ‘What’s the emperor’s order?’
The man looked out of the hall, and his eyes were looking far away. “There are too few words Chaoyang knows at the age of three, We should enlighten her. We are going to invite the scholar Zhou Yan to teach her.”
Mr. Xiao Yuzi thought of the words that the little princess praises his majesty with repeatedly, and he smiled secretly. Does the emperor want to hear more fancy flattery from the little princess?
As spring season was approaching, there were many mosquitoes, especially near the flowers and grass in the imperial garden. Every night, there were many small black spots flying around.
It was soon time for the annual Siyuan Festival, with regards to the founding emperor of the dynasty named Siyuan. Siyuan was only a poor aristocrat in that year, during the great chaos of the previous dynasty, he united like-minded people to overthrow the court and establish the Chen Dynasty.
In order to commemorate the founding emperor Siyuan, every year since the second emperor, Siyuan’s day of becoming emperor is called Siyuan Festival. The whole country celebrates it. At this time of the year, the palace would hold a banquet where the emperor and his officials would happily celebrate together.
Compared to the previous occasions, Emperor Wei was no longer out of place and did not refuse such a banquet. This was a festival handed down by his ancestors.
Since the dinner party was going to be held, the little dumpling was making preparations with the help of maids. She ran to sister Xiao Hua to help her choose a beautiful skirt and braid her hair.
Only if she could wear the same clothes as her father, it would have been even better. That way, others would know immediately that Daddy is her father!
The little dumpling looked up at Xiao Hua and said, “Please, sister Xiao Hua!” She solemnly did the posture she learned from the ministers in the court, bending humbly the same way that she had seen in her father’s Royal study before. She raised her little fat paws and bent them into an arched position, and bowed her head face seriously.
Xiao Hua hurriedly stopped her. Although she almost melted there by the cute state of the little princess, she was afraid to be seen by Mr. Xiao Yuzi or the emperor to salute like her. She couldn’t accept such a bow!
Chief Eunuch Xiao Yuzi hadn’t been punished by the emperor since his master, Eunuch Dou had been returned. Now he was still frightened by the fact that he had been assigned to the frontier. He was especially paying attention to the little princess. He couldn’t see anyone else slighting her.
According to Mr. Xiao Yuzi’s own words, even the emperor, the merciless devil, couldn’t help himself in front of the little princess. When he is called by the soft voice of his daughter, her father melts and listens to her every word. How could other people make the little princess unhappy?
She hurriedly stopped her, helped the little princess up, and replied hurriedly: “This is improper Little princess. Don’t worry, as your maidservants, we will dress you up beautifully. You’d better look forward to that! “
The little dumpling didn’t know what this Siyuan Festival was, or what was the national feast for the whole country to celebrate the emperor and his officials. she only knew that she would have a big meal with her father. Her father had asked many people to see her and to let the, know that he was Yinyin’s father!
She was so happy that her little face turned red with excitement and was eager to go. When her hair was being combed by Xiao Hua, she didn’t make trouble, let alone ask her father to braid her hair. The chubby ball realized that Daddy’s braid was not as good-looking as Xiao Hua sister’s.
It’s not to say that she was being disrespectful, but the little dumpling felt that she had to see many people together with her father. She has to be beautiful. Daddy was the best looking person in the world and YinYin was the second best looking person. She couldn’t let her daddy lose face in front of others!
Wei Jue didn’t know the state of mind of the little dumpling, because this evening was the state banquet of the Siyuan Festival. According to the Convention, he had to rest for one day today. But, his biological clock was used to getting up early, he couldn’t sleep even if he did stay in bed.
He was a man of great self-discipline. When he got up, he went to the gate of the side hall subconsciously, but he didn’t see that small ball crouching by the gate of the hall early in the morning. Every time she saw him, she would throw herself like a human bullet to hold his legs.
When Mr. Xiao Yuzi saw that the emperor’s sword-like eyebrows were frowning, even without the emperor asking, he replied nimbly: “Your Majesty, the little princess hasn’t gotten up yet. She is still asleep.”
The little dumpling slept in the side hall of LongQian palace. These days, the side hall had been redecorated. All the decorations of the room had been changed into pink and tender colors. That is, the tables, the chairs and everything else in the room was in pink, yellow and other childish and bright colours. The whole room looked colourful and childlike.
After nanny Wan was assigned to care for the dumpling, when she had nothing to do, she would ask Xiu Fang for clothes. She took the embroidery needles to make dolls for the little princess, and made dolls like a little tiger, little rabbit, a dragonfly and other styles. These were also placed in the hall.
As long as you go into this temple, you will know that there is a little princess who is a favorite of thousands of people living in it. Which child has such a careful arrangement?
In the past, the little dumpling always took the initiative to find Wei Jue. As long as she escaped through the gap, she would pester people. Even though most of the time her father, emperor was busy ignoring her, she could still play for a long time on the side by herself. She could talk to herself in a loud voice without any response. She could talk to herself for a whole day even.
This was the first time Wei Jue had stepped into the side hall since the little dumpling moved in.
His eyebrows were slightly raised, and the colorful scene in front of his eyes was totally different from his aesthetics. In the past, the LongQian palace, which completely followed his aesthetics and style, seemed to be divided into two worlds, one was gray, white, black and cold, and the other was colorful, fresh and lovely, soft and childlike.
For the first time, Wei Jue really realized that he had encountered a small child whose thinking he would never be able to understand. She was small, weak and stupid all the time. Her small mouth kept chattering. It seemed that she was very special.
According to the palace ministers, she was very keen to flatter him?
He went into the hall with his hands on his back. The people in the palace kept quiet under the gesture of Mr. Xiao Yuzi. They saluted and bowed their heads in silence.
The man was wearing a black robe embroidered with dragon patterns, with a gold belt in the middle, and his back was tall and straight, just like the God from heaven. In the eyes of the palace workers, the emperor was a little terrible, but no different from the God of heaven.
Just a few steps into the hall, the young milky voice of the girl and the words of comfort and praise from the palace maids was heard.
“Sister Xiao Hua, does this flower look good? I want to put it on my head, OK?”
Xiao Hua eyelids jumped. Which one of the palace maids without heart or eyes put this flower on the little princess’s dressing table?
She thought of the braids that the emperor had made for the princess, which were crooked and twisted. On the top of the little princess’s head, there was such a flower with disharmony and burned the eyes of the onlooker.
Then she tried to tactly appease the little princess to not wear the flower today, afterall she could not possibly say frankly to her that this flower was not good-looking on the princess, right? Otherwise was she not trying to pick a fight with the emperor and the little princess?
She said, “The flower is beautiful, but the emperor had used it to braid your hair, right? Since it was used by the emperor, I’ll braid it for you next time. I’ll use a different one today. “
The little dumpling understood and nodded. She thought that it was her Daddy’s exclusive flower. She would only allow Daddy to use it for her alone. It was better to use something else. The little dumpling agreed, “It’s still Xiao Hua who’s smart.”
After saying that, Yinyin thought: “Well….When my father braids my hair tomorrow, i’ll let him use this. “
Just be happy…..
The little dumpling’s hair was arranged by Sister Xiao Hua. After her hair was done, the little dumpling looked at the copper mirror and saw her slight fuzzy image. She turned around and feet that she looked very beautiful. Even though she was a little less beautiful than her father. She was still the second most beautiful person!
Yinyin praised Sister Xiao Hua, flattered her so that she could dress her next time too: “Xiao Hua sister is very powerful, Yinyin looks so beautiful, after Xiao Hua sister dressed Yinyin, she became more beautiful!”
Since she was praised sincerely, Xiao Hua was in a happy mood. Xiao Hua smiled and squinted her eyes. She looked at the lovely little princess and praised her sincerely. Her heart was so beautiful that she could see bubbles in the background.
At last, she understood why the emperor made all kinds of compromises after listening to the little princesses flattery. Even people like the emperor couldn’t resist being praised by the lovely reincarnation of the goddess of cuteness, the little princess. How could she stand it?
Xiao Hua held back her powerful urges to pinch the little princess’s face, and told her that she can’t commit such cuteness overload crimes.
After that the little dumpling turned around, she looked down at the little skirt she was wearing, holding the corners of her skirt. She said: “Sister Xiao Hua, are you sure that my father,the emperor, will be wearing yellow clothes?”
Xiao Hua nodded. It should be true that the emperor would wear a formal Dragon Robe to attend the state banquet every year.
The little dumpling looked at the skirt again, eh It’s also yellow. She raised her lips contentedly and said happily, “That’s good. YinYin will wear the same color as my father, the emperor. I would be the second most beautiful person in the world!”
The innocent dumpling’s childish words kept coming from inside the room. Standing behind the emperor, Mr. Xiao Yuzi could not help his trembling shoulders, which almost seemed as if he had epilepsy. It was really hard to suppress his laughter.
He understood why the Emperor didn’t accept other people’s praises like the little princess’. The key lies in the fact that the little princess was so diligent in flattering the emperor and hugging his thigh that even when there was no one to listen, she didn’t forget to flatter the emperor and brainwash others. Xiao Yuzi admired her very much.
