Please pardon me for this chapter as my abilities to translate the description and names of the gifts itself is bad. Most the time I do not know what I am translating and how it looks like. At one point, I was scolding XJX for giving too much gifts. LOL
Chapter 184: Betrothal Gifts (Part 1)
These few days the Shen family was caught in a very strange mood. Because of Shen Miao’s bestowed marriage, everyone seemed to be clouded with anxiety. Even though everyone was trying to express joy, but one could not hide the bleakness of it at the end.
Shen Xin and Luo Xue Yan would leave early and return home late daily, most likely they were searching of ways to get this marriage rescinded but they returned without success. Upon some thought it was as so, since Emperor Wen Hui had concealed from the entire court of officials to write this decree, most likely it was to sever Shen Xin’s intention of refusing. A Monarch’s words were not of a joking matter and words spoken were like water that was splashed. In the previous dynasty there was a Princess who fancied a Zhuang Yuan (top scorer in the Imperial examinations) but that Zhuang Yuan already had a wife but it was because of the phrase of ‘Monarch’s words were not of a joking matter’ that he divorced his wife and married another?
