The people held their breaths and fixed their eyes on the emperor, who had not responded to anything since the beginning.
The little dumpling had no idea what was going on with everyone. She looked at the crowd a few more times. When her curiosity for outsiders was exhausted, she focused on the food on the table.
In front of the emperor, there were more varieties of food than others. The imperial dining room also took care of the taste of the little princess. Only what a three-year-old child could eat was put on the table.
Wei Jue never paid any attention to the desires of the stomach and mouth, and the food presented was light, so he stopped eating after five to six bites.
What was left was a cheap and greedy little dumpling.
Yinyin couldn’t change her curb her weakness towards delicious food. She was used to living in the shabby house in the village before transmigrating. She had never eaten anything delicious back then. Yinyin lived by the grace of her neighborhood’s good uncles and aunties and picked up bottles and sold them for a living. Food especially is precious in her heart.
The craftsmanship of the imperial dining room was not bad. In order to please the emperor, every palace worker had expended great efforts on making it. Naturally, the food also tasted so good that the little dumpling would have wished to devour everything.
For this banquet, there was no talent show or any other form of entertainment, so people watched the little princess beside the emperor chewing with her mouth full and cheeks bulging. She not only ate herself, but also thought of her father, the emperor while she ate. She would take a few bites then scoop a spoonful of delicious food for the emperor clumsily.
The civil and military officials stiffly watched the emperor expressionlessly swallowing the things the princess had scooped out, while the other members widened their eyes, opened their mouths, and looked at the little princess with amazement and admiration.
Even if it was really just a little princess, she was the most powerful person present in the room. She dared to feed the emperor! This time the girl was more determined to make friends with the little princess. It was very dignified to have a friend who is not afraid of the emperor!
Wei Jue wiped her mouth slowly, and then he wiped the greasy mouth and claws of the dumpling. Then he looked down at all the people.
“Tell me, who do you really want, to come into the palace to study with you?”
The ministers who had just said that they would send their children into the palace hurriedly said yes.
“I’m not asking you.” said Wei Jue and then he looked at the group of kids, “Say it yourself.”
The prime minister held his grandson’s hand high. “Choose him!”
Cao Lian, from the grand master’s mansion, defied his timid mother and said, “I want to!”
The other kids couldn’t wait to promote themselves before the little princess!
Even if they were afraid of the emperor, the Young kids would go out of their way to make friends with the fierce little princess and summon their courage to reply in front of the fierce and vicious emperor.
One of King Wu’s sons and daughters were twins. They looked at their father carefully in unison. They saw that his face was gentle, and they mustered up their courage.
Dangliang’s lips are hooked.
Wei Jue pondered and said, “Choose five from them to enter the palace. Zhou Yi, a scholar from the Imperial Academy, and Bo Yuan, the Prime Minister of the right, are responsible for teaching.”
Zhou Yinian, a senior scholar, was about 40 years old. He had a clean face and a clear temperament. He had a little moustache, which was quite the gentleman’s style. He bowed his hand and said yes.
Boyuan smiled and said: “The little princess is so lovely. I should teach her well!”
The little dumpling thought that his voice was familiar. She was busy eating and glanced up. She was stunned. Then uncle Boyuan waved to the little princess and said, “I can’t wait for another three days. It’s so nice to see the little princess so energetic!”
He was also very willing to keep talking but when WeiJue looked over he obediently shut his mouth.
Some people asked how to choose five accompanying reading partners?
Looking left and right, there were more than ten people who were willing to go to the palace to accompany the Princess. Young noble children were facing the first elimination crisis in their lives before they entered the official arena.
WeiJue looked at the dumplings lined up before him, “Let her choose by herself.”
Everyone was surprised, and the little dumpling looked at Daddy blankly.
But the system jingled and said happily, “Little cub, choose quickly. Other than the bad uncle’s children you can have anyone you want.”
The little dumpling was at a loss for a long time, and then she learned with the system’s explanation that her father had asked her to choose friends. The little dumpling’s eyes started glowing brightly with the word “friend”. She had never had any friends of her own age before. The children in the community looked down upon her and called her poor, ragged and especially bad. However, the little dumpling was still full of yearning for friends, and now she would also have friends!
She cheered with joy, and threw herself at her father and hugged him.
The WeiJue who was being attacked: “…”
He didn’t know what was wrong with this dumpling’s brain, but he could see that she was very happy. The corner of WeiJue’s mouth is cocked up in a somewhat smile for a brief second before coming down again.
Civil and military officials: “…”
“Whoa!” they said within their own minds in unison.
Since it was natural to choose friends, and since the little dumpling had a thing for pretty things and beautiful people, she subconsciously started looking at the beautiful children.
Cao Lian of the grand master’s mansion was more daring. He blinked at the little princess as if gesturing ‘look at me!’
The child from the prime minister’s office Jiang Cao was also not willing to fall behind. Criss Crossing his fingers he said, “Little princess, I have five story books with paintings. If you choose me, I’ll show them to you!”
The old prime minister asked his great grandson, “Story books?”
Jiang Cao covered his mouth and thought, ‘Bad, exposed!’
But even so, in order to make the little princess have a good impression on himself, Jiang Cao was stubborn and didn’t back away from her choice. Even if he was to be spanked for this, he recognizes it!
Fang Tang, the legitimate son of Beiyang, was soon to be five years old. With great disdain towards Jiang Cao he raised the corners of his lips. What story book was rare for the little princess? He then took out a jade plate from his sleeve and said: “If you make friends with me, this jade plate will be given to you, and will be used as a token of our affection!”
After that, his face became red, and his little face was twisted to one side. In order to make this friend, he really lost his blood, he had worn this big jade pendant since he was a child!
He had heard from his mother that as long as there is a token of affection, the relationship will be stable. He must be the best friend of the little princess!
The couple waiting beside him: “…”
Wei Jue’s face was black. Looking at that little rabbit, it was so little yet talking so big.
But as the little dumpling didn’t understand. She was very happy. For the first time in her life, a friend of her own age was willing to give her a gift. Yinyin pointed to FangTang. “OK, you will be my friend later! We are good friends! “
“You give me a present, and I will give it to you!”
For the first time in Yinyin’s life, she got the friendship and gifts from her peers. Her small heart floated up and was almost pulled out of her body.
Today her clothes were new, and there was nothing that she could gift back to him. The little dumpling was afraid that he wouldn’t believe it. So she explained earnestly: “I forgot to bring anything today, and I will give you my favorite flower tomorrow!”
“It’s called a token of love, Right?” the little dumpling pondered in her little head. With a keepsake, their friendship will be better and better. The little dumpling was full of confidence for the first friend in her life!
For the first time, the girl that had just made a friend only wanted to send out what she thought was the best thing to see. How could she possibly know what she thought was good would not necessarily be liked by the boy.
Fang Tang was at a loss. What was the first flower? In order to not make the little princess think that he had no sense, he nodded and pretended to be deep with a taut face.
Wei Jue recalled what he had heard in the side hall. At that time, the little dumpling said that it was the exclusive property of her father emperor. She would only ask him to braid with it tomorrow. Now she has already forgotten?
Wei Jue subconsciously thought that Meng Lang’s child from the Beiyang family was trying to lead his dumpling in the wrong path. He looked at the child in a cold manner. The child didn’t know what the emperor was thinking. Maybe he was pondering how he wanted to have this child, to fry it, raw or maybe tender?
Father Beiyang felt that the wind was especially chilly as he shivered from the cold gaze of the emperor. He was so scared that he grabbed his son back and covered his mouth to stop him from talking.
He also stared at his wife, what token of love. How could she say something like this infront of a child? Children didn’t understand anything, but they picked up all kinds of things from their surroundings. Such a careless mistake almost caused a major disaster!
Just take a look at the emperor’s black face. Beiyang was praying that the three members of his family could get out of the palace safely today.
It seemed that the emperor was going to step in. The emperor is going to be willful again!
He began to advise: “Emperor, you have agreed to let the little princess choose by herself. You see how happy the little princess is when she makes her first friend. Don’t worry about it. If you really don’t like the child, you can find a reason to send him away later.”
Man Yu Guang sees the little dumpling’s happy little face as if it was glowing and pressed his thoughts forward.
Chengli, the eldest grandson of the Cheng family, was a bully in primary school. He had read more books than other children his age. He vaguely felt that the token of love was wrong. He poked his grandfather and asked, “Grandfather, what is a token of love?”
The Duke of Cheng chuckled, “You can’t give a token of love casually. That’s something only adults can give. Don’t make a fuss about it, it’s not for kids!”
Looking at the emperor’s black face, he told FangTang: “You must not go to be a reading partner to the princess. The token of love is for your future wife. Now you can’t marry a wife after you go out!”
Cheng Li had a little brain.
After choosing the first friend and reaching an agreement, the child then looked at others.
The dumpling had chosen Cao Lian from the grand master’s mansion, Jiang Cao from the prime minister’s mansion, and Cheng Li from the Chengguo mansion. There was only one place left.
The little dumpling was tangled up. He subconsciously looked at the twins of King Wu, and the system was shocked. It is afraid that the little one would say “I want him” in the next second!
It continued to brainwash the little dumpling. It stressed himself and broke his heart. The reborn male lead of this world was really treacherous. How could the little dumpling who was so small fight him?
“You don’t have to choose, that child. That uncle is a villain. A very bad villain!”
Seeing that the little dumpling was still hesitating, it was bewildered by Wang Shizi’s gentle smile, and the system was in a hurry with a circle of light.
Suddenly it thought of the attachment of the dumpling with her daddy. She regarded her daddy as the world’s first firm belief, and the system lights lit up, “Daddy, that uncle wants to kill your father.”
In the past, the system couldn’t bear to look straight at the fawning of the little dumpling towards her daddy, trying to educate her all the time, but now this was the game changer!
As expected, the little dumpling was angry and turned to battle mode in a second. “Uncle system, why does that bad uncle want to kill my Daddy?”
The system looked calm and steady,looking in the eye it continued to provoke the innocent little dumpling with bad intention, “Because, he is a bad guy, and the bad guys are unreasonable.”
The little dumpling shivered, in her heart he was the villain of her daddy!
She turned her head to the other side. She didn’t look at the children of the bad uncle’s family. The young dumpling decided to be angry and didn’t like the children of the bad uncle’s family!
But she was worried because of this, because the system uncle said that someone wanted to kill her daddy. She had no idea how to choose a friend for herself, and followed her fingers.
Seated in that position was a small black haired head with a thin body who was staring back at her with big eyes, he couldn’t believe it!
Previously, the way the little princess chose people was based on the appearance, like the children of those ministers. He thought that even though she was a three-year-old baby, she still looked at the face ,so he retreated silently. He felt that he had no hope.
He had a gentle name, Yu Shushu, which contained the expectations of his father and mother. They hoped that he could grow better. They didn’t expect the ugly duckling to become a white swan, but just a normal person.
Yu Shushu was the grandson of the Minister of Li Bu, the second son of his parents. Previously, the Minister of Li Bu had no hope for the second grandson. He recommended the eldest grandson. Although he was a little older, he was only three years older than the princess. He would also take care of people. Unexpectedly, the little princess pointed out his ugly grandson?
The little dumpling pointed to the end of the person, did not look carefully, threw herself on her daddy, and said coquettishly: “Dad, I want to go home.”
She didn’t want to see that bad uncle. If she wanted to support her father, she’d better stay away from that uncle and tell him not to hurt her daddy!
She was full of milk fragrance, and WeiJue heard the word “Go home”. Suddenly, he was in a good mood. That cold palace that belonged to him was a home in her heart.
