The little dumpling didn’t know about what happened to the bad uncle. Naturally, no one would tell a three-year-old such complicated things. Even the system didn’t want such a complicated matter to fill her small head with her small brain capacity.
After guarding her father for several days, she hadn’t seen the bad uncle. The little dumpling was relieved.
She has been working hard these days. She had to wake up early and go to the court with her father every morning. She was told that the bad uncle also comes to the court. Hence, she also had to go to the court at the same time as her father, and then go to class at the right time. The three-year-old dumpling was so busy that it was heartbreaking.
Seeing the little princess always dozing off in class, Bo Yuan only thought that it was funny. He knew the inside story. How could such a small child care so much about someone? But thinking of the man in the imperial study, he felt a little envious. Why didn’t he pick up such a good girl?
He had also met her outside the palace that day, and he felt that she was very disgusting? If he had known this earlier he would have taken her to his own home and raised her himself! Boyuan regretted it!
However, Zhou Yi, a senior scholar, didn’t know that. He was an old and upright man. He was usually quiet in the Imperial Academy and didn’t pay attention to other matters. He had only taught for a few days and always found the little princess asleep in his class. Gradually, he couldn’t help but shake his head in disapproval.
Even if she was the Pearl of the Emperor’s eye.
Who could bear that she was still dozing off the next day and even till the third day? Zhou Yi was angry and had a short temper. He thought that the princess was only three years old. But when he was three years old, he was more hardworking. He saw that she was lazy and didn’t like learning so much, what could she do? Other than just sleeping in the palace every day!
The other dumplings in the class looked at her anxiously. The little princess had been sleeping for a long time. Teacher Zhou was standing by her desk, with a face that was frightening.
Because the little dumpling was the youngest, she was short and small. She was arranged to sit in the middle-front position. Anyway, this class was set for her, and naturally everything was for the little princess.
But this little master was not fond of learning. How about sleeping every day?
Strangely enough, the little dumpling went to bed after class and stopped dozing off by the afternoon. She listened very carefully. She opened her round eyes and stared at the teacher. Her thirst for knowledge was louder than anyone else. Compared to the morning, she was quite different.
Because of the different timetables, Zhou Yi usually had classes in the morning, while Bo Yuan served as the Prime Minister of the Right. In addition to the capital, he also had to go to the Yamen to deal with government affairs, which could not be more leisurely than the Imperial Academy. Therefore, he did not enter the Palace to give classes to the children until he was finished with his business in the morning by the afternoon.
Zhou Yi seldom saw the way that the little dumpling listened carefully. That was to say, he had seen it once or twice occasionally but didn’t pay attention to it. Just thought that children are fickle.
But most of the time, the three-year-old princess in his eyes was a typical sleepy child. Did not like to study, loved to doze off, but also delicate.
If you wanted to ask what her plus points were, one was being cute and beautiful. The other was that she had a good attitude of admitting to her own mistakes. Every time one looked into her eyes, which were guaranteed by her pathetic sincerity and guilt of sleeping in class, one would lose most of their anger.
So Zhou Yi hadn’t made a report to the emperor twice before. He stood beside the little princess and watched the crease on the table made by the little fat face. It was very infuriating and funny at the same time.
He thought for a long time, decided not to wake up the little dumpling. Or should he call the little princess sweetly, he was afraid and believed that she would believe that he was possessed by an evil spirit!
Zhou Yi decided to make a report with the emperor now, and ask the emperor to teach her a lesson! Else the emperor will think he was bullying his daughter!
Originally, the other children watched the teacher standing beside the little princess, nervously for fear that he would hit the little princess in rage. Who knew that teacher Zhou just stood there for a long time like a fool, and didn’t wake up the little princess, let alone hit her.
They then saw Mr. Zhou walk out of the door of the class. A young schoolboy ran over. The students saw the schoolboy standing in front of Mr. Zhou. they didn’t know what Mr. Zhou told him. The schoolboy took a hard look inside the school. It seemed that he was looking at the little princess?
Soon, the schoolboy left, but there was a bad premonition in the hearts of the other children. They remembered that on the first day when they entered the palace, Mr. Bo threatened them. If they didn’t study hard, he would make a report to the emperor.
So Mr. Zhou Yi was going to make a report?
The little princess was lovely and generous. Every time she was given something delicious or some cakes, she brought them to share with them. It was even better than they thought. She was the most important little partner in the hearts of the children.
The Young classmates were very loyal. They even went out to pay homage to Mr. Zhou, when he didn’t return to the school, so they got together to discuss other ways.
The emperor was terrible. The children in Chang’an city grew up listening to the emperor’s story. In the hearts of the children, the emperor was almost as fierce as a big demon, which could stop the babies crying in the middle of the night!
If he glared at them, and they would all pee their pants on the spot.
Although the little princess was not afraid of the emperor right now, also the emperor seems to have a very good relationship with her, but their parents told them, the emperor was like a tiger, they would be sitting ducks if the emperor turned his face.
In case the emperor heard that the little princess was not obedient, she would be caught and beaten up by the teacher when she still sleeps. She thinks that her father is nice. What should they do if he were to punish the little princess?
They had heard that the little princess was picked up by the emperor from outside the palace. She was not the real daughter of the emperor. This relationship doesn’t sound very secure!
Fang Tang’s brain was very flexible and thought outside the box. He liked to listen to gossip since he was a child. He frowned and worried with his chubby hands on his chin. “I’ve heard of a family at No.8 Jingyi alley, Chang’an Street. They didn’t have any children for a long time so they later decided to adopt a child as the doctor had said that both of them could not have children. About two years later, they became pregnant. And just as they wished for, they had a son … “
The other children widened their eyes curiously and couldn’t wait to ask what happened later? “What happened later? Did they adopt a son in vain?”
Fang Tang shook his head, put his hands on his back and with a deep look. With that childish chubby face, which when adults would make the adults cry and laugh at the same time after watching. But the kids who were in the same group didn’t have the same idea. They looked at Fang Tang and thought that the story behind might not end well?
Fang Tang said: “After having his own son, the adopted son was not worth the money in their eyes. He had to fight or get scolded. It was said that he had to get up and work every day before dawn, and he did’t have enough to eat. Like a servant, he doesn’t even live as well as a little beggar. At least, a little beggar won’t be called around like a slave, and a cow is more comfortable than him! “
He broke his fingers and counting the tragedy of the adopted child. He concluded with great sadness: “So it’s not reliable to have no blood relationship.”
As soon as they heard about it, they were more worried. They thought more about it and said, “We have to hide the fact that the little princess loves sleeping. It’s not natural. In case the emperor loses face and thinks that the little princess is not obedient, what should we do if they abuse her? “
The child thought of what Fang Tang had just said, and the sad things about the adopted unlucky child overlapped on the little princess.
At the thought of the little princess’s small size and small strength, she would have to fetch water, to feed chickens and ducks every day before dawn. In winter, when the water froze outside, she would have had to wash the clothes of the whole family. She was so thin and she would also be hungry. She would never grow up.
Everybody’s hearts were pierced. Each glass heart was broken. It was so heartbreaking!
The Black dumpling had two big drops of tears. He was at a loss, hence he carefully asked his classmates. What should we do?
The black, thin and ugly dumpling’s eyes were red with tears flowing out. Even if they were all good friends on the same boat these days, they felt that they couldn’t bear to look straight at her and turn their heads to look away from their books .
Because the little princess was sleeping, the other kids didn’t want to wake her up. They were very careful. They chose the farthest corner of the study and squatted down in the corner making a small circle to discuss a way out.
Jiang Cao lowered his voice and said, “Shall I discuss it with my grandfather, in case the emperor is not good to the little princess and wants to drive the little princess away, I will take her home as my sister? I don’t have a sister anyway! “
When it came to Jiang Cao, he was very happy just thinking about it. The more he thought about it, the better he thought his idea was. The little princess was so lovely and soft. His parents would adore her when he would take her home! Later, he could take the princess as his sister out to show off and tell the other children of Chang’an city that this was his sister!
The more Jiang Cao was lost in thought, the more empty his eyes were. Cao Lian turned his eyes towards the little dumpling and said, “Beautiful! It’s better to go to my home than your home. My family has thousands of acres of good farmland! There are more than enough sisters to raise the princess with. Do you have any? “
Jiang Cao: “…”
His family was an upstart. His grandfather’s generation got up through scientific research and an official career. His family was clean and honest. They had never done any corrupt things. His family was so poor that they only relied on the salary of his grandfather and his father and the reward of the emperor during the new year’s Festival. Even the servants of Cao Lian’s family could afford several Jiang Cao. As the son of a family which had passed on for hundreds of years, he was so rich that it was dazzling, and his poor heart was broken!
Cheng Li had read a lot of books and was a bully in primary school. He was more mature, and suggested: “The most important thing right now is how to stop this. The most important matter right now is that we are afraid that the teacher will go to the imperial study to make a report. I can see that he is going to the imperial study. “
The royal study was not far from the imperial study. If you go faster, you could get there in a quarter of an incense(15 min).
Hearing this, the other kids stared at Cheng Li and asked him why he didn’t say this earlier?
Cheng Li was surrounded by all the dumplings. Who told Fang Tang to tell them a story that was so scary? They were all fascinated and scared at the same time. How can they remember the most important point in the midst of that?
Taking advantage that the teacher still hadn’t returned from the royal study, several kids quickly discussed their next course of action and decided to skip class!
They should hurry up to stop the little schoolboy, threaten him and tell him not to complain!
Since they decided to do it, the kids didn’t look back. They looked around to check if the teacher had returned or not and all of them ran out of the class.
As for the Sleeping Princess? They were not afraid. Anyway, Mr. Zhou doesn’t dare to treat the little princess harshly!
These kids were only three or five years old. They were not even tall enough to reach the waist of an adult. They started to run fast and then slowed down, panting and sweating. Finally, they saw the back of the boy at the gate of the imperial study.
And the schoolboy, invited by the little eunuch at this time, had stepped into the Royal study, leaving only one back to the group.
Since birth, these kids who had never run so hard before. Even then they had to return empty handed.
They looked at each other for a moment. Even though they were young, they thought that they had worked so hard and had not finished the work. Then they thought that they were fascinated by the story and started chatting, which led to the failure to stop the boy who was going to report , in time. They felt sad from their hearts. They were so sorry for the little princess!
The little schoolboy who entered the Royal study couldn’t resist touching his arms. He only felt a chill and had a bad feeling.
Is it to stop the princess’s report? Will the emperor not be happy after hearing it?
Thinking of his master’s words, the schoolboy looked dead as if he had come into the study, but if he did not go to hell who would!
