Chapter 24: Secret Scheme (Part 1)

Chu Jin Miao said that she wanted to write in the rear room and the rest of the young ladies had their interests peaked. In the end, the small rear room was filled with people and everyone was holding brushes as they knelt in front of the desk to write.

Lin Xi Yuan said to Chu Jin Yao, “Younger Biao Sister, there is no more space on the table here, do move a little there.”

Chapter 22: Meticulous Fabrication (Part 2)

Chu Jin Miao smiled awkwardly, not wanting to entertain Third Young Lady at all. She spoke hurriedly, “It is getting late so I will send Deng Momo out and not let Momo miss the meal time.”

However, Third Young Lady refused to let the matter slide and continued to talk with Deng Momo forcefully. Chu Jin Miao was afraid that Third Young Lady would spoil matters. She had finally made a good impression in front of Deng Momo and hoped that it would not be ruined by the foolish Third Young Lady.

Chapter 22: Forming An Alliance Secretly (Part 2)

Chu Jin Yao calmly asked, “Why?”

“It is that person that created the nonsense. Even though there are Momos in the courtyards of the young ladies, they are discipline Momos in name, in fact they are not like that at all. If one is a Di born young lady, then the mother would arrange early on for the young lady. The matters in the courtyard would be managed by the young lady and the discipline Momo would take on the bad role and scare the maids. However, your Momo is just not right. If there is such a person present, then all your matters have to go through her. Don’t mention that nothing can be done, your every move would be known to her. If this goes on, who would be the one benefitting?”

Chapter 22: Forming An Alliance Secretly (Part 1)

That day when Sun Momo returned to Chao Yun Yuan, she dared not be as insolent as she had been yesterday. 

The servants of Chao Yun Yuan had seen Sun Momo leaving high and mighty and even throw words that she would seek Furen for justice, while Chu Jin Yao calmly went out. Upon returning, Sun Momo became obedient and dared not be rude to Chu Jin Yao again. The few maids were somewhat surprised and started to respect Chu Jin Yao and put away their contempt.

Chapter 21: Biological Daughter, Adopted Daughter (Part 2)

Madam Zhao sighed, “I naturally want to. You have been living outside since young and I know you have suffered, but Miao-er is pitiful. I have treated her as a daughter for thirteen years so how would one bear for her to return to the farmer family? She was after all a young lady originally and to suddenly be a farmer’s daughter, there are a lot of people that would despise her in the family. I fear that she would suffer so I supplement her in many ways. You are different from her. You have to be magnanimous and should not be annoyed with Miao-er and compare everything.”

“Mother, I understand what you mean. You are reluctant to let Chu Jin Miao leave and want her to remain, assuming that you have three daughters right?” Before Madam Zhao replied, Chu Jin Miao continued, “Your heart is good, but did you not think of how I would deal with matters? I obviously came back, but my own birth mother would not take me of importance. How would others view me? Since you want both Chu Jin Miao and me to be your daughters, then shouldn’t you treat everyone equally?”

Chapter 21: Biological Daughter, Adopted Daughter (Part 1)

Chu Jin Miao was halfway through peeling the orange when she discovered that Sun Momo was secretly looking at her. She inwardly cursed her as trash and passed the orange to the maid before straightening herself, “Mother, actually there is a reason behind Su Momo’s actions. Fifth Young Lady has just returned and for the past few days, money has gone missing. Now that she has obtained so much money, how would she be able to manage it? What’s more, Sun Momo is not taking the keys and not returning them. She was only managing it and helping Fifth Young Lady be the gatekeeper. If Fifth Young Lady needs anything, just speak to Sun Momo about it and retrieve it. Could Sun Momo even be ignorant of such matters? One fears that Fifth Young Lady would spend too generously and be cheated by others. So it is alright to let Momo be in charge, no one would stop Fifth Young Lady from normal usage but for abnormal usage, Sun Momo would be able to warn in time. So what would the difference be?”

Chu Jin Yao was sneering when the other was speaking. It was not like she had no life experiences, so how would she believe in such pompous nonsense? Which family would keep their money with an outsider? It is said that they are managing it, but in the end they are holding it hostage. She had seen it too many times in the village. The mother-in-law said that she feared that their daughter-in-law would spend too much and managed her dowry for her only in the end for it to be taken away. With the dowry taken as hostage, the daughter-in-law could only listen to the mother-in-law. Now Chu Jin Miao wanted to use the same trick on her? Continue reading

Chapter 20: The Glint And Flash of Knives (Part 2)

The chapter title is a Chinese phrase that refers to the fights on the battlefield.

Chu Jin Yao thought that it was surely retribution. She pouted, was cautious but continued tugging his arm, looking at him with that pitiful look. Qin Yi’s brows did not move at all but he held the book in his hands for a while, without even turning a page.

Qin Yi could no longer bear it and closed the book before saying calmly, “You are truly getting bolder.”
