Chapter 153: Pushing the Waves (Part 2)

Jing Zhe said, “The dispute in the Shen residence is big. This time the show really make one feel the bustle.”

Shen Miao smile indifferently, “Perhaps, the bigger the dispute is, the better, and we will not be affected since we already have no relations.”

Jing Zhe looked at Shen Miao and walked over to Gu Yu to whisper to her, “What is with Young Lady these days? Why does one see that she do not seem to be happy?”

Gu Yu shrugged and looked over at Shen Miao’s direction. She saw Shen Miao sitting in the courtyard and she did not even flip a page of the book. Her hand held her chin as she looked up into space somewhat lazily, thinking of what idea.

“It seems a little so.” Gu Yu also nodded, “Recent days, there is no spirit no matter what one says.”

“No spirit?” Jing Zhe shook her head, “If it was before, upon seeing the Shen residence fall into misfortune, Young Lady would always be somewhat happy. Now the Shen residence is in a mess, but Young Lady only waved her hands upon hearing about it, like it was not very interesting. Could it be that she is sick?”

“Can eat and drink, can walk and jump. What kind of sickness can be like this?” Gu Yu rolled her eyes, “You think this is lovesickness?”

“Who is suffering from lovesickness?” A voice behind them came over, making both of them to jump in shock. They turned around and saw Luo Ling walking over. Jing Zhe and Gu Yu quickly greeted, “This servant greets Biao Young Master.”

Luo Ling waved his hand and walked over towards Shen Miao. When he reached Shen Miao’s side and saw that Shen Miao was sitting there in a daze, he then asked, “Youngest Biao Sister?”

Shen Miao turned her head, and when she saw it was Luo Ling, she smiled, “Older Brother Ling.”

Luo Ling sat down opposite of Shen Miao. His right hand still had not recover but Shen Qiu had found a book of left-handed swordplay for Luo Ling, thus these days he had been seriously practicing swordplay with his left hand. His mind had been much more open and warmer. When he went out, almost all the females would shyly steal a look. Hearing from Luo Tan’s teasing, it seemed that a number of young ladies from official’s families were interested in Lou Ling.

Luo Ling said, “What is Youngest Biao Sister thinking to be this engrossed?”

Shen Miao gently smiled, “Nothing much, just sitting and daydreaming.”

Luo Ling thought about the ‘lovesickness’ and such that Jing Zhe and Gu Yu had spoken about and his heart sank. He looked at Shen Miao and said untraceably, “One thought that Youngest Biao Sister has reached the marriageable age and become a little naughty.”

Shen Miao did not seem to understand Luo Ling’s words and said blandly, “Speaking of marriageable age, it should be Older Biao Sister who is anxious first.”

Luo Ling laughed, “Also true.”

Shen Miao looked at Luo Ling, “For what matter is Older Biao Brother looking for me?”

Luo Ling was startled for a moment before a trace of awkwardness rose on his elegant face. He came here to take a look at Shen Miao, and now Shen Miao asked him such a serious question, he did not know how to answer. However he was quick witted, “Oh. A few days back some of the snacks that Youngest Biao Sister gave me were too sweet, so one came over to tell Youngest Biao Sister that.”

Gu Yu who was standing behind had a somewhat resentful expression on. Her Young Lady was not the pastry chef of the Shen residence and not the master who makes cakes. Luo Ling ate Shen Miao’s cakes but still dare to blame Shen Miao.

Jing Zhe however was fighting back a laugh. Gu Yu had a lump of wood for a brain and could not see it but she was smart. This Young Biao Master obviously wanted to get closer to Shen Miao, but was unable to find an excuse. However Jing Zhe saw her Young Lady having a lack of mood for small talk and shook her head, feeling that it was a pity. The falling flowers were yearning for love, but the heartless brook rippled on. One feared that her Young Lady would not appreciate Young Biao Master’s earnest intentions.

Shen Miao indeed frowned and asked, “Too sweet? I did not add a lot of sugar.”

Luo Ling scratched his head awkwardly and said when he thought of something, “Ke. Tan-er mentioned that Youngest Biao Sister knows how to make cakes with fruit flavours, one ask if it is possible to make that for me the next time?”

Shen Miao was stunned.

Luo Tan often come over to Shen Miao’s courtyard to look for her to chat and she would just eat the snacks on the table without any fuss. Those cakes were those that Shen Miao herself attempted to make since she had not made them for a lifetime, it was very unfamiliar when she tried making them. However Luo Tan found it delicious and ate clean the entire plate of snacks.

That pastry had fruit juices mixed in it and it was just the taste that the Great Liang Imperial family liked. Previously Xie Jing Xing instructed Shen Miao to make two baskets of snacks so that he could allay his hungry when killing others. Afterwards Princess Ming An was indeed eliminated by Xie Jing Xing but the two baskets of snacks were not given to him. Even more, afterwards Xie Jing Xing disappeared for a period of time and Shen Miao had been watching the chaos in the Shen residence, and was also making snacks at the same time, so as to return the other person’s favour.

Just as she was thinking, Shen Miao’s gaze gradually hang down. Speaking of which, Xie Jing Xing had left for a number of days, and there did not seem to be much talk in the Ding capital when the Great Liang’s Prince Rui left so casually. One was unsure if Xie Jing Xing was safe or not, after all he was still carrying the identity of the dead Little Xie Marquis of the residence of the Marquis of Lin An. It was difficult on the front and back for him.

Luo Ling saw that Shen Miao started to be in a daze again, and he waved his hands in front of her, “Youngest Biao Sister?”

Shen Miao recovered to her senses and smiled apologetically, “Sorry Older Biao Brother, this recipe was made by me in a whim, and at that time one only made that one plate and it was all eaten by Older Biao Sister. If I have to make that again, I do not know if I make it.”

Jing Zhe widened her eyes as she stood behind Shen Miao, as her Young Lady could actually lie to Young Biao Master with a serious face. Jing Zhe naturally knew whether Shen Miao knew how to make those snacks. Shen Miao had memorized the recipe and personally made it, looking like she was very familiar with it, so why was she not willing to make a plate for Young Master Luo?

Could it be that Young Biao Master had offended her Young Lady? Jing Zhe was very puzzled.

Luo Ling had totally not expected Shen Miao’s rejection, and was embarrassed and somewhat in a loss.

Shen Miao appearance was leisurely and there was no trace of shame on her expression. Since it were the Great Liang’s Imperial family’s snacks, the process of making them was complicated. She had done it once but had no patience to keep doing it for others. It would be better for Luo Ling to get the pastry chef of the kitchens to make him something else.

They conversed here but did not know that their cheerful and witty chatting appearance was seen by someone afar. That person was clad in white with a white fan. It was a picture of graceful nobleman. It was Gao Yang.

Ever since Xie Jing Xing left, Gao Yang had followed Xie Jing Xing’s instruction and stayed in the Shen mansion, because of the injury on Luo Ling’s hand. Thus it was convenient to see what kind of movements Shen Miao had. Not only that, he could actually see the lively appearance of Luo Ling and Shen Miao.

Gao Yang’s gaze on Luo Ling had some sympathy in it, and when he looked at Shen Miao again, he shook his head and sighed deeply.

“What are you sighing about?” A head suddenly stretched out from behind Gao Yang’s back, and nearly scared him so much that he took a step back. That person took a step from behind Gao Yang. With a moving brows and heroic spirits, who else could it be but Luo Tan?

“Doctor Gao.” Luo Tan asked, “What are you doing here?” She followed along Gao Yang’s gaze, and saw the scene of Shen Miao and Luo Ling chatting while sitting down, before looking back at Gao Yang. Gao Yang felt somewhat restless to receive Luo Tan’s strange gaze when he heard Luo Tan said in understanding, “I know. So you like Youngest Biao Sister!”

Gao Yang hurriedly reached out to cover Luo Tan’s mouth. What a joke. Xie Jing Xing did not only send him one person to the Shen mansion, there were secret guards too. If any of the itchy mouth secret guards said these words to Xie Jing Xing, then he would not be able to stay in the Ming Qi. Gao Yang looked at Luo Tan, who was struggling in his hands, and helplessness frowned in his heart. This Luo Tan really knew how to find trouble for him. This already was not the first time!

Luo Tan finally struggled out from Gao Yang’s hands, and most probably knew that her voice was a little loud so she suppressed it. However her expression was still filled with pride, as if she had caught some leverage from Gao Yang, “So you like Youngest Biao Sister. So you are jealous.”

“Do not be smart.” Gao Yang said, “This one dare not have feelings for Fifth Shen Young Lady.”

Luo Tan pursed her lips, “Good that you know it yourself. My Youngest Biao Sister is a so smart and pretty Young Lady, that it would be hard to find one even if one held a lantern to look. You a doctor dare to think about it? Just go and look at a mirror.”

Her tone of voice deeply pierce Gao Yang’s heart and made Gao Yang have the urge to immediately find a mirror to see if he had that kind of look that could not be seen outside like what Luo Tan mentioned.

Thinking of his own Highness, Gao Yang coldly laughed and pointed towards Luo Ling’s direction with his chin, “I am delusional and he is qualified?”

Luo Tan looked at Luo Ling and sighed, “Older Brother Ling is very good but is not the person for Youngest Biao Sister.”

These words were out surprisingly of the contrary for Gao Yang, as he thought that Luo Tan would wholeheartedly support her own TangXiong, thus he asked, “Oh? Why say that?”

“Youngest Biao Sister is a person with a mind of her own, and Older Brother Ling ‘s temper is too warmth but unable to make any sparks. One thinks that Youngest Biao Sister only treated Older Brother Ling as an older brother.” Luo Tan felt that it was a pity.

“You still know about sparks?” Gao Yang was surprised and continued asking, “Then what kind of person does your Youngest Biao Sister will have sparks with?”

Gao Yang only casually teased Luo Tan, and never had thought that she would really think about it seriously and finally said, “People like Prince Rui?”

Gao Yang was surprised.

“Prince Rui is good-looking and also mysterious and unpredictable. And what is more, he is a person who value relations and righteousness, thus he can be considered as an incomparably good man in this world. My Youngest Biao Sister should match with this kind of husband. But this is probably only this one’s wishful thinking.” Luo Tan’s voice was suppressed but she saw Gao Yang smiling at her when she lifted her head. She then realized that she had said too much to Gao Yang, and since she did not have such a good relationship with Gao Yang, Luo Tan’s expression immediately changed and she said by Gao Yang’s ears, “Hey, you got a hold of me because of the matter of me going to the residence of Prince Rui. Today I know that you admire my Youngest Biao Sister in your heart and also got a hold of you. Since both of use got hold of each other’s leverages, then it is considered even. In the future you better not think of using the matter of Prince Rui to threaten me. Be careful that I will tell my Youngest Biao Sister about your cunningness, and let you be unable to lift your head up in front of her for the rest of your life!” Luo Tan said with a hostile voice.

Gao Yang really did not know whether to laugh or cry. In actual fact, he was more fearful of Xie Jing Xing alright. But seeing Luo Tan’s appearance of being smart and her brows arching in craftiness, suddenly he had interest. He got nearer and said, “That is good. Then let us hold each other leverages. How about that?”

He was born with a playboy feel and when he spoke to Luo Tan, he was very handsome. Luo Tan was originally one who like good looking things, but one did not know why she felt a little guilty conscience. She violently shoved Gao Yang to a side. She was a person who practiced martial arts, and that one shove could almost take blood from Gao Yang.

Luo Tan turned around and left, saying angrily, “Lecher!”

Gao Yang touched his chin and slowly smiled.

All the trivial things that happened in the Shen mansion did not attract Shen Miao’s attention, as they were all irrelevant and boring matters to Shen Miao’s eyes. It was until the second day when something happened in the Shen residence that was somewhat interesting.

Shen Yue had ran away.

    Lou Tan and Gao Yang ship might not take sail for the time being due to the other one being so dense. Poor Gao Yang…HAHAHAHA!

    • Oh boy, Jiaojiao ah, I wonder how you are so dense when liking someone again when you have already liked someone. Shouldn’t you be more familiar with love? Oh wait nvm, you were kind of forced to love that scum anyways. Whew our Empress is still pure! However, poor LT, at least I smiled at LT GY moments. Now where’s SX &FAN moments? I need to see the progress for their shipppp!

  7. Why does everyone talk about shipping gao yang and luo tan, all their interactions just make me nauseous, i feel like them getting together would be horrible luck for both of them. Also, why would shen miao feel the absence of xjx? He hasnt done nearly enough in their interactions for her to feel anything romantic for him yet, unconsciously or otherwise, to much of his actions around her are just petty, sad and kind of pathetic. I mean what the hell is that childish temper tantrum crap with dumping the pastries on the floor, seriously? Showing up uninvited in her room, and then making demands that she cook for him?? WTF…. Screw that noise. If he keeps doing such immature loser things i’ll have to change my mind about him being a good partner for her.

    • How do you suggest XJX approach SM? If he doesn’t visit at night, any other meetings with her would be impossible during the day. As little Marquis XJX or as Prince Rui, they AREN’T SUPPOSED to be interacting and be familiar with each other. It would spell trouble for their families because of their prominent status in society. If he suddenly does sweet things without trying to make SM notice him enough first, SM will just find it very awkward and shut him out. Although he teases her a lot, at least he helps her out when she needs help and they are at par in terms of mental capacity. There are different ways to express love depending on a person’s personality. XJX is not the type to make declarations of love or do fluffy things. SM missing XJX is normal. He visits her at night frequently and it is only with XJX that she can actually speak her thoughts out loud to. If it were me, I would miss such a person too! Haha

      Unfortunately, I think this novel will never showcase very sweet romance but that is fine with me since my personality also isn’t one fit for such things. To each his own I guess.

      I do agree with XJX being immature when jealous though haha

      • He shouldnt barge into her room uninvited, yet at least, he could show up at the window and complain about the cold so she invites him in herself, instead of making demands he could talk about how good the pastries look and wonder how they taste. Things like that. He needs less of the yanking on the girls pigtails kind of approach. And i guess i can see her noticing the absence of a like mind to talk with, but i dont think her heart and feelings should be as fluttery as is being written, yet.

      • Well, it seems that you don’t really understand SM’s personality either. Do you think she would be impressed with a sweet talks and romantic as well as gentlemanly approach of a man?
        Her soul is a mother of 2 adults children with bad experiences in love. Such gentlemanly move from a man would only nauseating her as she would suspect it as a fake affection. Things that she doesn’t need it the most.
        She doesn’t reject LL openly is only because he is her relative from her mother side, she can trust him and LL is a transparent character not like XJX, so she needs not to be especially alert with him no matter how intimate he treats her.
        Transparent and straighforward personality like LL and SQ are relatively easy to deal with.
        On the other hand, XJX might not know about her past life but he definitely can sense her tendency to build a virtual wall around her for protection. SM is a woman who doesn’t necessarily need man to love her. From their interactions till this moment he could definitely notice that. So his attitude, protecting her secretly and help her using an excuse as an ally is the logically the best move.
        An occasional teasing us exactly something that suitable to create some sparks to a calm, cold and detached personality like SM, because all that missing from her is now exactly the capability to get excited Luo Tan has made a good analysis actually.

      • …SM needs someone that can stimulate the spirit of a young lady again since she’s now in a traumatic state.
        She has no faith in romantic love anymore.
        What she needs is a man who can’t only talk sweetly but rather a man who acts more instead of talking and promising things.
        Last but not least… Don’t you know that most women in the world just love such a bad boy type more than the gentleman type 😁. Bad Boys always manage to attract more girls. Intelligent and independent women who are known to be inlove with bad boys are not a rarity 😊😁.
        SM might not in love with XJX just yet, but if the only person she can trust and can talk with is suddenly not around for a long time without news…
        I don’t think it’s strange at all if she feels something missing with his absence.
        Regarding why he came to her room at night… Well, where should they supposed to meet? She is a girl, and a daughter of a general whereas XJX is a prince of an enemy country.
        They are not supposed to have any connection at all.
        And at this point, SM has already recognised their alliance, she accepted his existence and help.
        So it’s not strange at all that she’s thinking about him.
        Whether they are a good match or not, that’s left to be seen later.
        But at least until today he is still the best and the most suitable partner for her personality.
        She has thw queen Aura, domineering. A gentle type would get on her nerves sooner or later.
        I’m not as domineering as her, but a gentle type like LL is too boring for me too. The man for such woman should be at least the one like SQ, in case someone like XJX is too hard to find.

      • About GY and Luo Tan, why not? GY obviously needs someone who can fix his conceitedness, and that would be LT. She doesn’t care at all about his status nor good look, so it’s a good lesson for a conceited man like GY.
        She likes good looking things and men, but she never considers him special, so it’s actually rather beneficial to cure the arrogance of GY.
        And LT needs a man who can control her wildness a little bit.
        So it’s quite suitable I think.

  9. ROFL
    Just ROFL

    SY just run?
    Real?
    What a freaking genius. X’DD

    The Wangs are already claiming SDL is the di daughter, until this situation is solved she’s either the Shu daugther, or throwing the whole (third rate) Shens family’s sh*t on the fan.
    So she rather lives without money, without family protection, status, and connections, without probably even a roof over her head (c’mon, WHO is going to shelter her? for real?)
    Or she’s letting the whole city know the sham the marriage was. She was a known figure in town after all, anyone she asks for help gets to know it, and if she’s seen around ppl will know.
    Then she looses what? Her reputation? Compromises the Shen and Wangs position and relationship to one another? Perhaps even in the court?

    It’s just one bad move after another. SM doesn’t even need to play/move her, the girl is check-mating herself. She just gets more and more cornered and doesn’t even notice.
    Well… and she isn’t ruining things only for herself, isn’t?
    Rofl. Good going, SY.
    Nice job.

    Why do I have this inkling that destiny is ironic and this time she’ll be the one throwing herself at FXY’s “door” (to not say another thing XD)?
    Hehehehehe
    But without the Shens(tm) backing the marriage, and with the fake Shens dire (and getting worse, SY’s courtesy) situation and status, I wonder if FXY is picking her up at all, or even if he does, with what “status”, and how he’ll treat her since she forced him into such a unfavorable position?
    (didn’t want to be an equal wife…. Will end up as a concubine, if not a servant, but hey. At least it’s for the prince she wanted to marry to, right? Let’s hope he makes it worth. Ehehehehehehehe~)
    (Considering how he treated SM in past life, I don’t think he’ll disapoint)

  11. I never imagined that Luo Tan who is more like a tomboy then a refined lady would actually guess correctly that Shen Miao and Xie Jing Xin match well together. I wonder what Xie jing Xin will do once he gets the report that Shen miao might actually be missing him. Probably smiling uncontrollably and throwing a tantrum once he hears the false rumor that Gao Yang might also like Shen Miao.

    And Shen Yue is running away. Oh god does she make the same mistake like Shen Miao and run to the residence of Prince Ding to become his concubine? Only in her case this will end badly since her family has nothing to offer (unlike Shen Miao who is the daughter of the most respected General) The only thing that could happen would be that she might get ‘offered’ to the Qui’s prince (you know some form of marriage alliance)
