Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage: Chapter 100 (Part 2)

Chapter 100: Taking Action for Her (Part 2)

The change in Rong Jing Tang’s view was naturally not know to anyone but whether the people who knew would speak about it was another matter. From the surface, everything proceeded in a well-organised manner.

On this day when Shen Miao was returning to the Western courtyard from outside, she encountered Shen Yuan.

Ever since the Jing siblings arrived in Shen residence, no one knew what Shen Yuan was busy with, that one did not see him around much. Upon returning to the Ding capital he left early and returned late in the day, making Shen Gui unhappy as he thought that Shen Yuan was purposely avoiding him because of Ren Wan Yun’s matter. He had quarrelled a few times with Shen Yuan and always parted on bad terms. However these quarrels did not affect Shen Yuan as he still did not appear in the residence as before.

At the end they encountered here.

Seeing Shen Miao, Shen Yuan slowed down his steps and said, “Fifth Younger Sister.”

“Second Older Brother.”

“Heard that lately Fifth Younger Sister is rather close with Biao Younger Brother and Biao Younger Sister.” Shen Yuan smiled as he spoke, “Is this coming back from Biao Younger Brother’s?” He unexpectedly mentioned about Jing Guan Sheng as if implying that there was something between Shen Miao and Jing Guan Sheng. Bai Lu’s and Shuang Jiang’s brows furrowed as they found that Shen Yuan’s words were not good to listen.

Shen Miao glanced at Shen Yuan and did not answer his words, “It seem like Second Older Brother just returned from Second Shen’s. One heard that lately Second Shen’s crazy fits has reduced a lot, is it that she would recover soon?” Ren Wan Yun had not appeared for a long time and all big and small matters were handled over to Wan YiNiang to manage. Old Shen Furen, who usually was not satisfied with Wan YiNiang, did not say anything about it so the people of the Shen residence were well aware that it was not possible for Ren Wan Yun to be able to live as grandly as the first half of her life. Moreover, Ren Wan Yun’s maiden family was only a wealthy merchant and no matter how much money they had, there was no power and could not help in anything.

Shen Yuan’s face paused and sized her up before smiling, “Fifth Younger Sister recently look much better, is it that there are any happy event nearer?”

Because of Shen Xin’s and wife’s return, Shen Qiu had been daily paying particularly attention to Shen Miao. Now Shen Miao was no longer that slow and prudent young girl and has now superior manners and looked much better in appearance, at least she would not be ignored anywhere she was placed.

“How would I have any happy event? On the contrary with Second Older Brother’s busy appearance, perhaps a happy event is nearing.” Shen Miao answered.

Hearing that, there was look of what could be considered as happiness that surfaced on Shen Yuan’s face. He said, “Oh? It was seen? One often felt that previous days were troubled with bad luck, but lately Second Older Brother is thinking of ways to disperse them. Now that things are getting smooth, most likely one would feel happy.” He then looked at Shen Miao meaningfully, “But Fifth Younger Sister need not be unduly humble as I see that Fifth Younger Sister’s good news is almost here.”

Shen Miao did not speak so Shen Yuan cupped his hands and said, “One still have some matters and will not talk more with Fifth Younger Sister. Will be taking one’s leave.” Finishing speaking, he strode away.

Bai Lu angrily said, “This Second Young Master is really not polite at all.” Those cynical words he used, everyone could hear the hostility Shen Yuan had with Shen Miao.

Shen Miao’s brows were tightly knitted as she looked at Shen Yuan’s back without speaking.

“Young Lady?” Shuang Jiang asked worriedly.

Shen Miao said, “He is being somewhat strange.” Shen Miao was very clear about Shen Yuan and did not underestimate him. He might look indifferent to the matters in the residence but was in fact the most ruthless one. Now Shen Miao could be sure that Shen Qiu’s ending in the previous life was definitely related to Shen Yuan.

Even though Shen Yuan did not know that Shen Miao had made inversion plans on some matters but the words just times seemed to have leaked some information that Shen Yuan still had plans behind.

“Why not let Guard Mo to follow Second Young Master?” Shuang Jiang proposed.

“Not needed. Mo Qing does not have that ability.” Shen Miao shook her head. There was no need to fear Fu Xiu Yi but one must be careful with the people behind him. She said, “Wait and observe.”

Upon returning to the Western courtyard and just as she stepped into the room, one was able to see Gu Yu and Jing Zhe anxiously waiting in the room. Once they saw Shen Miao return, Gu Yu quickly closed the doors and pulled Shen Miao to the couch to sit down before Jing Zhe softly said, “Young Lady, Rong Jing Tang’s Fu-er has passed the information over.”

“What is it?” Shen Miao asked.

“Old Furen intends to personal take action and arrange it to happen in two days later.” Jin Zhe said angrily, “Old Furen is really too bad. Master and Furen had treated her well but she actually scheme against Young Master. And that Biao Young Lady, one can already tell that she is not a good person but did not know that she was that shameless!”

“Alright.” Gu Yu interrupted her, “Young Lady, what do we do now?”

“Why is it two days later?” Shen Miao asked.

“There is a family banquet two days later and just nice Second Furen’s friends want to come over to pay a visit to Second Furen…” Jing Zhe did not finish speaking but the meaning behind was without a doubt, that Old Shen Furen want to take advantage of the number of people to slander Shen Qiu taking Jing Chu Chu’s innocence, and take account for it in front of everyone. How could Shen Qiu decline it?

The exactly same means as in the past life, with the rebirth, Old Shen Furen’s tactics were still not at all high.

“So be it. Instruct to Fu-er this.” Shen Miao beckoned over and Jing Zhe leaned forward as Shen Miao said a few words by her ears.

“But someone is still required to monitor.” Shen Miao said, “This matter cannot go wrong.”

“This servant understand.” Eagerness flashed in Jing Zhe’s eyes, “This servant will definitely do it well.”

Shen Miao gently smiled, “This is a good matter, do not let other smash the matter up. There would be retribution when one destroy others marriage.” She stretched her hands and reached out for the teacup before lightly tapping it. She looked calm as if she was one who was higher up.


In the night, a few hundred Li (1 Li = 500m) away from the Ding capital in a manor, there sat a person in the main hall.

The people who were standing in the hall were all clad in black and long boots, their uniform appearance along with their imposing manner were shocking. The leader cupped his hands and said, “This subordinate is not good at handling the work. The information was transmitted back. May Master punish.”

“Alright.” The youth who was sitting at the main hall lazily waved his hands. He was wearing a purple robe with gold thread embroidered patterns of dragons on the ends of the robes. Under the lights, those golden dragons seemed to want to fly off from between the purple clouds. He was playing with a female hairpin and had a handsome and charming face (Translator looks up to the skies and shakes head) that even with a devilish smile on his face, he seemed to be a noble gentleman from a great family who came out to play. But if one were to look carefully, in that pair of peach flower shaped eyes, they were deeply filled with wine but was like ice and snow, without a trace of emotions.

“You all cannot conceal it up.” Xie Jing Xing said, “I did not intend to hide it. It is just to strive for more time. Since the information has been transmitted back then time is even tighter now.”

“Master.” The leader of the black clad people frowned, “The matters of the Ding capital has yet to be managed well and now with the pressing time, what does Master intend to do?”

“Do not leave any potential problems. Firstly.” He looked at the side while pondering before casually saying, “Find a time to settle Xie Chang Wu and brother.” Xie Chang Wu and Xie Chang Chao still had half of the same blood flowing in them but from how Xie Jing Xing spoke, there was no trace of hesitation, as if he was dealing with a stranger, like a cat or dog in general.

“Master?” The black clad person was surprised for a moment before asking hesitantly, “For so many years… Why Master?”

“Previously was too lazy to manage but now both of them are going beyond their bounds.” Xie Jing Xing said, “If they are not wiped out, I will not feel relieved when I go.”

“But Marquis Xie had already entered them into officialdom.” The black clad person said, “These days the two brothers keep close to Marquis Xie and one had heard that Marquis Xie had already introduced them to his Official colleagues and told them to look after them. It is not difficult to take action but it would alarm others.”

“Xie Ding that fool!” Xie Jing Xing’s expression got darker and his tone had some fury, “Unable to accomplish anything but more than enough to spoil everything.”

His subordinates were not the slightest surprise when he directly called out the Marquis of Lin An’s name as if this was a natural matter.

The black clad person lightly coughed and said, “It is because Master delayed into entering officialdom and Marquis Xie fear that there would be no successor so he let both of them hold the position first.”

It was not the first or second day of Xie Jing Xing’s stubborn and obstreperous temperament so it seemed that Xie Ding was truly helpless with this, else no matter how biased the Marquis of Lin An was he would not have given up on Xie Ding Xing, and let Xie Chang Yu and brother take over his mantle.

“Never mind.” Xie Jing Xing knitted his brows, “Postpone the matter on the Marquis of Lin An residence. At the Princess residence side, send people to secretly protect Princess Rong Xin.”

“Master.” The black clad person hesitated, as if he was determined and said callously, “Since in the future it would be as so, it is better to now draw a line to the relationship with Princess Rong Xin…”

“Since when is it your turn to teach me to do things?” Xie Jing Xing lightly swept his eyes towards him and he immediately remained silent and felt a chill covering his entire back. In the next moment, a voice above his head sounded, “The things I do is my business and it is her business if she appreciate it. I have already done the utmost duty.”

The words contained a faint indifference and ruthlessness, coupled with his handsome face, it made one shudder in fear.

He stood up and the edge of his robes were slightly wavering and in the movement of gold light he said, “Do as planned.”

“When in the Ding capital striving for time, one heard that Shen Yuan had already collected almost all of the evidence.” The black clad person spoke, “One fear that once the year reopen, Shen Yuan would be able to completely consolidate the evidence and at that time the Shen family will become the first one to suffer.”

“Very good.” Xie Jing Xing shrugged his shoulders, “If Shen Yuan have any difficulties, help him secretly.”

“But Shen Yuan is Prince Ding’s people.” The black clad person reminded.

“I certainly know that he is Prince Ding’s people.” Xie Jing Xing waved his hands, “I only let the Shen family help us do some blocking.”

  3. Help?…Help as in helping him when he messes up and add oil to the fire or help him as in literally help him by giving him a hand and cleaning up his mess? Cuz if its the latter then….. I won’t say I’m not disappointed if he ever actually does that. I’m just glad Empress Jiajiao is smart so she can back herself up and protect those she cares.

    As for that stupid SY if he ever does something big then he better prepare more than 100 copies of his head and heart so that it could satisfy our Empress for the past grudges you guys have.

    Thanks for the chapter

  5. my Goodness this is annoying. When the male lead plots to use the mc’s family as pawns, it doesn’t sit well with me. I’m bloody eager to see Shen Miao pull out her machine guns and ruin everybody’s plans, yes, that includes you male lead and your arrogant plans. Go to hell this once.

  6. Xie Jing Xing is sure easy to identify with his purple robes but it makes me think that he has a closet full of the same robe just with different designs on them…
    Even if Shen Yuan tries to do anything, Shen Miao will surely come out victorious in the end!

  8. Whenever XJX has to come, his ” beauty ” comes first, then his name. Well, at least our Empress is badass and is not affected by his many charms. I wonder if the evidence SY is collecting is real or fabricated. Oh, and Congrta on the 100th chapter!

  10. It’s happened when both of them promised to not encounter with each other path again. Shen mioa has already saved his life by not selling his name to the enemy but this xie jing xing is willing to assist shen yuan in destroying shen mioa’s family. What a ungrateful and foolish fellow !

  11. ML… you butthole.

    You better give us a good reason other than ‘great for blocking’. Hmpf hmpf. If you retract your statement in the future I will still remember this.

    Somewhere in the future
    Me: SM I think you don’t know yet but our little ML said before—
    ML: *glares*
    Me: *glances back with mocking eyes* Who fell for who now? Hmpf.

  12. Becase i know, XJX is the main male lead, i can’t come to hate him. But if he wasnt the main lead, i would’ve disliked his capricious and down-right ruthless character.

    But anyways, thanks for the chapter!

    • If SM wreck his plot, won’t she actually be helping bim though?

      I mean…If we look at it, the major points seem to still be ongoing on XJX’s side eventhough his action is apparently hastened compared to during the original timeline: he left his brothers grow and become threat for his life (they will scheme against him with Prince Ding), and more.

      If Shen Miao did something that caused him frustrated, I’m pretty sure it’s actually saving his life in foresight. Lol. Do people even get I mean? 😅

  13. Lol. While I’m indignant on behalf of our SM and her family, I guess at this point XJX and SM are little better than acquaintances. It’s not really surprising that he’s willing to do that to further his own aims – he has always come off as rather ruthless after all.

    • Even if Shen Yuan manages to incriminate Shen Bo, the only outcomes I could think of is their army power reduced, oh, and Court Trial (which I presume would happen in the future).

      But…What does Shen Yuan knows about war? Even if The Shens did something out of policy and unorthodox dubious conducts, considering The Shens’ upright personalities, they were only doing those necessary out-of-records tasks in order to protect the country! I’m sure of it!

      So maybe XJX helping Shen Yuan because he knows in the end, the outcomes would not be that bad, and Shen Miao would do something in her end?

      This is just my speculation though 😛

  15. XJX needed to be drunk to order these things, I think he knows that he is taking a big gamble. He is thinking of her because he is playing with the hairpiece….he is thinking he needs to gamble that she can take care of her own business.

    Is this a cultural thing where powerful men require powerful female counterparts? It’s a theme I see come up often in CN novels. The male may have feelings for the female, but she has to prove that she can be her own woman.

        The family banquet is going to be the start of everything going to hell isn’t it?

        So Shen Miao didn’t know about Prince Ding is making move against them already. But Shen Yuan’s tipping off about it to her unexpectedly because he is a fool didn’t he? 😆 Fool. Such a fool. You just alerted the dragon in the grass, Shen Yuan idiot!

      • I don’t think so cuz in past life, XJX started his plans much later so at this point I doubt he would do anything and instead sit back to watch the show. But right now, his plans started in advance and Shen Miao just happenned to be here to bring the Shen family to his attention….


  18. No offence to Tnyhy or Zaza but I’ve noticed the translation quality has greatly dropped compared to before (I was rereading the novel and felt that way). The sentences’ structures are either wrong or put in an awkward way, though there aren’t many grammatical errors but the sentence building isn’t quite up to mark. I really love this story and your translation as you always maintain such strict routine so I would hate to see the quality so rough. I’ve noticed some reviewers complaining about the translation qualities few days ago and felt really sad about it considering how good a story it is. So, if you don’t mind, maybe you should add someone in your team who is good at sentence building, I don’t mind helping out with it either if you will let me, cause the awkward sentence structures are causing the quotes to sound very weird! Please don’t take any offense for my harsh words Tnyhy, you did a good job with grammar that much I admit.


    • Hey eristol! Not exactly my place to clarify but just to put it out there; I spotted mistakes here and there too and hence offered my help. Eventually, i got on board.

      Currently, i am proofreading and editing the past chapters. Zazajunnie has been busy lately so it might be difficult for her to review the changes and update everything.

      Also regarding the sentence structure, to my understanding, Zazajunnie and Tnyhy want to stick as close to the original text as possible, and the characters have a quirky way of speaking, which might sound perfectly fine in chinese but sounds off when translated. But to do justic to the original novel sometimes it’s unavoidable.

      To sum it up, it’s a long processs (takes a lot of time just to proofread, so i can’t even imagine how long it takes to translate every word and sentence) but we’ll get there eventually.

      Hope i was able to clarify a little. I really really love this story, and hope more and more people enjoy it.
