Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage: Chapter 171 (Part 2)

Chapter 171: Confronting On The Bed (Part 2)

Thinking of what Pei Lang said, Shen Miao could not help but smile. However the smile was somewhat miserable. Which female did not want a male to love one another and lived till old age? It was just that in her past life she was used to seeing the rise and fall in the world and at the end the so called admiration between her and Fu Xiu Yi was nothing but her own wishful thinking. She also had not experience the feeling of having mutual love of a couple. However she understood that once something happened, one’s thoughts were not of oneself. She was not willing to be like the last lifetime, foolishly give one’s lifetime happiness to others. Currently it was good. From the beginning she had controlled her heart thus it was much easier than retrieving one’s heart that was already given away.

It was just that she did not feel very comfortable at the bottom of her heart.

She sat under the lamp for a while but she was not thinking about anything. After a while, she blew out the light and climbed onto the bed to sleep.

The wind and snow in the residence of Prince Rui was exceptionally big.

One entire type of guards were trembling as they stood in the wind and even the somewhat strong white tiger was thrown outside the bed chambers as punishment. Today everyone was not pleasing to Prince Rui’s eyes and everyone in the residence of Prince Rui was punished. Even Ji Yu Shu and Gao Yang were locked in the tower prison to face the wall.

What kind of place the tower prison was? The people who were locked up were the most evil and when dealing with these evil people, torture was necessary. As the cruelest place of the Mo Yu Army, there were so many kinds of torture there that if there was no eighty-one types, there would be at least forty-nine types. Many men with unswerving determination would guard the tower prison and wail like ghost and howl like wolves after a few days. The first time Tie Yi went in, he was bedridden for a long time and vomited whatever he ate for an entire month.

Ji Yu Shu and Gao Yang looked like attractive and tender young masters that the guards in the residence of Prince Rui were secretly pitying them as they entered the tower prison.

Ye Ying quietly tabbed Nan Qi’s arm and asked, “What is with Master? Who had made him angry?”

Nan Qi made a hush sound and see that there was no moments in the room before whispering, “Gentleman Gao and Young Master Ji did not report that the Palace wanted to bestow marriage upon Fifth Shen Young Lady, thus Master got angry.”

Ye Ying covered her mouth and her eyes widen, “Gentleman Gao and Young Master Ji are truly daring to even hide Fifth Shen Young Lady’s matter. No wonder they are being locked in the tower prison.” After finish speaking she then looked at the white tiger that was trembling in the cold wind and said in pity, “So pitiful. On normal days, it would eat, drink and live well. One had thought that it was different from us but did not expect that matters erupt, everyone are all punching bags.”

Huo Long flipped her long hair and sighed, “It is the beauty that cause the fury.”

In the room, Xie Jing Xing passed the letter that was written to Tie Yi and after Tie Yi took a glance at it, he hesitated, “Master, if His Majesty know that there is changes to the plan at this end…”

Xie Jing Xing looked at him and Tie Yi immediately shut up. It was not a good idea to object to Master’s decision now when Master was not in a good mood.

Xie Jing Xing put the other letter inside the letter and said, “What is going on at Pei Lang’s side? Go and inquire.” After a pause, he then said, “And also Feng Zi Xian and Su Ming Feng.” His brows slightly writteled and suddenly thought about something, “How about the matter about the medicine herbs?”

Tie Yi quickly said, “One had already send people to search and upon finding it, it would be sent to the medical hall.” Princess Rong Xin’s heart illness had frequently occurred in the past and in the medication there was one herbs that was in scarcity as it would only be available during spring. All the available herb in Ding capital’s medical halls would be bought by the Princess residence and these days there were no new shipment for Princess Rong Xin, thus she could only endure. Xie Jing Xing instructed people to purchase it from outside with great value before ‘smoothly’ selling it to the medical hall.

“As quickly as possible.” Xie Jing Xing pursed his lips. After thinking for a moment, he suddenly stood up and put on his coat before heading out.

Tie Yi was slightly startled, “Master still want to go out?”

“Have not yet finished calculating the accounts.” Xie Jing Xing snorted coldly before walking away with a brush of his sleeves.

The outside of the Shen mansion was already quiet and Shen Miao’s room was a cloak of darkness. It was obvious that one had slept for some time.

When Xie Jing Xing reached, Cong Yang was sleeping on the tree and when he saw him walking over, he almost fell off the tree in shock. He quickly got down and stood at attention to greet Xie Jing Xing.

Xie Jing Xing took a glance at the window and Cong Yang quickly said, “Young Madam has already gone to rest.”

When Xie Jing Xing walked to the front of the window, he saw that there was a jade like ring and there was a pendant placed at the window still. Xie Jing Xing looked at Cong Yang with questioningly gaze and Cong Yang said, “After Young Madam went to rest, Luo Ling secretly place the safety pendant on the window still. Young Madam have yet to discover it.”

When Xie Jing Xing heard it, his gaze moved slightly and he used his sharp dagger to pick up that safety pendant and threw it at Cong Yan, “Keep it well.”

Cong Yang was startled and heard Xie Jing Xing continued speaking, “The pet at home is missing a pendant.”

Cong Yang, “…”

At the time of Cong Yang’s speechlessness, Xie Jing Xing had already lightly and quickly opened the window to enter.

On the bed, Shen Miao was sleeping soundly.

Xie Jing Xing walked to the side of the bed and crossed his arms for a while before raising his eyebrows, “To sleep this sounding, it seemed that one did not take my words to heart. Really have such nerves.”

The young female did not have the usual dignified and calm look when sleeping and without all the different things to conceal her appearance, her original appearance was shown. Under the moonlight, her eyes were delicate, making one remember that she was just a sixteen year old young female and one could not ignore that because of her situation and the means that she had shown to be capable of.

Thinking of how Shen Miao was enduring her tears when he was holding her chin, Xie Jing Xing was a little guilty in his heart.

He reached out to move the messy hair on Shen Miao forehead to the back of her ears but saw that Young Lady’s eyelashes trembled. Xie Jing Xing’s hands paused and his gaze went down and saw that the body that was wrapped in the quilt was slightly trembling.

She actually was fake sleeping.

Xie Jing Xing raise his brows and simply sat closer a little before placing both hands at either side of Shen Miao’s and lean forward and whispered in a magnetic voice.

“After helping so many times, why not repay me once by devoting one’s life?”

He stared at Shen Miao’s eyes and slowly leaned over.

Shen Miao’s body was so stiff and that breathing sound seemed to be just beside one’s lips with the feeling of oppression coming from the top was nearing her, she ferociously pushed Xie Jing Xing and sat up before speaking in anger, “What do you want to do?”

Her voice was however somewhat frenetic.

Xie Jing Xing pressed her back down to the bed.

Shen Miao struggled in unease and Xie Jing Xing had to subdue here a few times before laughing out, “What do you think I will do to you?” Then he gave her a critical look, “In your dreams.”

Shen Miao was so angry that she wanted to call Mo Qing over to beat Xie Jing Xing up.

Because she only wore the middle clothes when she sleep at night, after struggling with Xie Jing Xing just now, her middle clothes opened up, revealing a snowy white shoulder, seemingly one could see the plum blossoms on the tudou (aka olden undergarments). Xie Jing Xing was slightly stunned when he saw it and Shen Miao discovered where he was looking and became so upset. Just as she was about to scold, she saw Xie Jing Xing showing over the quilt and covering her up.

Shen Miao revealed her head from the quilt and said angrily, “You are sick.”

Xie Jing Xing ignored her and quickly wrapped her tightly in the quilt like a silkworm cocoon before pressing her onto the bed. Shen Miao could not move at all and Xie Jing Xing looked at her as he supported his head with a head.

Shen Miao finally got frustrated with struggling and asked, “What are you here for?”

“Shen Miao, behave yourself a little.” Xie Jing Xing frowned, “With this Prince here, who would dare to force you to marry?”

Shen Miao was so angry, she started laughing, “You will not stay in Ming Qi for thousands of years and there will be a day that I will need to marry. You can protect me today but not tomorrow. Even if you protect me tomorrow, there will be a day were you will not be able to protect.”

“If one can protect?” Xie Jing Xing asked.

Shen Miao was startled and did not speak.

Xie Jing Xing, “You do not care about marrying others or just want to marry?”

“What does it got to do with you? You asked too much.” Shen Miao had taken Xie Jing Xing’s rudeness during the day to heart and did not plan to talk to him nicely. But upon thinking about it, how was she like a person who was an Empress? She instead looked like those embarrassed young females on the streets. Thinking of how she was pestered by this person in front now, Shen Miao was very dissatisfied with herself.

Her temperamental appearance was seen by Xie Jing Xing and he was unable to make head or tail of it. He flipped over and press Shen Miao down and propped Shen Miao’s head before asking lowly, “Who do you want to marry?”

“Luo Ling, Su Ming Feng, Feng Zi Xian or Pei Lang?”

He was getting closer and that handsome facial features were magnified in front of Shen Miao and one could smell the fragrance of the bamboo scent on the other party. His eyes were exceptionally pretty but currently also had some overbearing manner, as if it could force out one true thought. When being looked at by this pair of eyes, it seemed that all of one’s secret thoughts had nowhere to hide.

Shen Miao’s heart suddenly felt panicked.

This distance was just too close. It was so close that she could hear the thumping of the heart, just like the sound of drums, but she could not differentiate if it was hers or Xie Jing Xing’s.

Not wanting to lose control of her feelings and do expected things, Shen Miao suddenly shrank back. Her back was against the beam of the bed and Xie Jing Xing reached out to protect so that she would not hit her head.

“This has nothing to do with you.” Shen Miao quickly said, “We only have the relations of allies and allies are of mutual cooperation. Prince Rui still wants to control my lifelong matter? Not to say marriage, even in the future when one give birth, separate, disposed, all of that does not have half a relation with you.”

Xie Jing Xing was originally rather angry upon listening to the first half of the sentence but upon hearing the latter half, he was betwee laughter and tears, “What nonsense. You really want to be a disposed Empress?” He had already heard her mention about disposed Empress for an unknown times. Xie Jing Xing did not understand how Shen Miao not be confident with herself that she must imagine such a miserable ending for herself. She did not seem to be a person of low self-esteem.

Shen Miao was so mad that she was speaking incoherently, “It has nothing to do with you. We are only allies. On what basis do you manage my affairs.”

Xie Jing Xing stared at her as the anger that she provoked slowly raised up. He was also a proud person and to be repeatedly dismissed like this, one could not mention how uncomfortable his heart would feel.

He asked, “Allies?”

Shen Miao nodded her head.

“Allies cannot manage your affairs?”

Shen Miao continued to nod her head.

Xie Jing Xing said balmily, “Good.” He quickly leaned over and gave Shen Miao’s lips a peck. Shen Miao was momentarily stunned and saw that purple clad youth using an extremely harsh tone, “Now we are no longer allies.”

“You!” Shen Miao could not speak as there seemed to be a gentle feeling that remained on her lips.

He laughed frivolously, “Now one can manage your affairs.” Finishing, he then got up from the bed and looked at Shen Miao condescending manner and threatened, “Remember, in the future marriage, giving birth, separate, disposed, all these would require this Prince’s agreement.”

After finishing, he looked coldly at the window still and disappeared.

Outside the room.

Cong Yang was forced to listen to everything from the tree till his face and ears turn scarlet but he dared not depart without orders. When Xie Jing Xing came out, Cong Yang greeted him and Xie Jing Xing said, “In the future when someone gift things, just throw it away.” He took the safety pendant that Cong Yang gave him and walked away with annoyance on his face.

Translator note: Pffff… SM maturity always goes back in decades when dealing with XJX. That is why I enjoy translating their interactions first before the rest of the scenes. Due to her past lifetime experiences, SM has experience everything except for the romance part of life so it is good that XJX could make her feel the ‘frustration’ of dating. LOL

    • Right? He can be indifferent to unrelated people but his morals are on point. Such a catch, and it’s not just that he’s great on a superficial level, both as an individual and as a partner he’s great. This life around JiaoJiao, you can be at ease from now on.
      Prince Rui we entrust our Empress to you, guard her well please.

  10. Tsundere s everywhere gawd, will someone make a move already? Prince Rui, man up and take your wife. Show her what love really is ❣️


    • Pfftt.. like the author would let it easy.

      Its need to be epic and memorable.

      Hence the writer is just starting to put on the pan on small fire. A bit of oil. Ingredients like chillies and onions still wheezing in the juicer machine.

      Waiting for the oil to sizzle.


    • i think she will still deny everything since she is not that into romance nowadays.. but at least XJX already made a first move so we will not be keep in the dark anymore 😂😂

      • Yup I think she’ll start to think of the possibility but it’s doubtful that she’ll believe it right away. XJX needs to be more direct


      • FS thinks so too! SM always seems to find a way to deny her feelings and try to “make better sense” of XJX’s actions. Like its so impossible for him to love her or at least have romantic interest in her.


  11. I feel bad for poor Cing Yang, having to endure such a steamy environment lol. Prince Rui finally makes the move huh? Revenge for getting his tofu eaten.

    I’m somewhere I can’t fangirl out loud right now but I feel so happy and warm and tingly and I want to hop on the desk and wiggle in the most embarrassing way. What to do?
    Am I allowed to hug you guys zaza and tnyhy? I’m really grateful you guys translate this and in such a reliable manner. Thank you great benefactors!

    Uhm, and XJX, he always smiles that smile that is not a smile but being between laughter and tears? They are my OTP. He can make her feel at ease enough that she acts like a young and spoiled young lady (really this “ally” of ours that didn’t conveniently show up when the whole marriage joke started… she’s completely not sulking), and she makes him feel helpless at times, and he’s XJX and kyaaaaaaaaaah!!!
    Ah, I’m so happy. What a great way to start my Friday! Thank you zaza and tnyhy.
    There’s a chapter tomorrow as well right? And we’re being promised that it’s even better. Im’ma wait on my bed till the chapter is out so that I can fangirl thoroughly.

    Happily signing out


      • No chance no way I won’t say it, no no
        (Give up, give in, check the grin you’re in love)
        Empress: This scene won’t play I won’t say I’m in love
        Us: We’ll do it until you admit you’re in love
        Empress: You’re way off base I won’t say it
        Get off my case I won’t say it
        Empress: Girl don’t be proud it’s okay you’re in love


  15. Thanks for the translation.

    Come on now. Even our traumatized-to-the-core empress HAS to finally get a clue now. Short of outright saying that he loves her, that’s about as obvious as one can be.

    That said, I’m looking forward to how the furious silkworm will react once she gets freed from her plight next morning. He’s been able to keep her unbalanced whenever they meet up for a while now, and he really has been overbearing and rude, so I’m actually fully expecting her to understand yet not fully understand what this was all about because she’s just so extremely pissed and off kilter.
    He drags out the sixteen year old girl from the dried out husk of an old empress, and she manages to turn him into a purple vinegar cloud deity with just a few lines. They’ll keep each other busy for a lifetime. And I’m looking forward to reading all of their silliness.

    Also, haha, I was so looking forward to the two idiots getting punished, having them unceremoniously shipped off to his scary torture dungeon to look at the walls all night, and do that in a single paragraph is both extremely fitting and heartbreaking. I still kinda want an account out of their perspective, yet I’m oddly satisfied already. How weird. 😀
    (To be honest, I’m half expecting them to be comically strung up upside down or something as a bonus from the peeps that are suffering because of their negligence.)

    Also, Cao Yang is probably at the verge of exploding. All that juicy gossip, all those delicious and embarrassing scenes, but if he dared to spill any of it, he knows that the current XJX will skin him like an orange (and by know he probably has a healthy respect of her majesty the royal blanket burrito as well)… truly trapped between a rock and a hard place, ah.

  16. Hahahahaha our empress was feigning sleep. I wonder if she was secretly waiting for XJX to come or maybe she pretended to sleep so that she won’t have to face him when he comes. TOO BAD SHE GOT CAUGHT! HAHAHA

    Awwwww, XJX was guilty because SM almost cried when he confronted her in the palace.

    Awwwww, XJX wrapped SM with quilt because he doesn’t want her to feel embarrassed and disrespected because of her attire. (and he doesn’t want to be unnecessarily distracted and tempted haha)

    Awwwww, XJX trying to intimidate SM but he uses his hand to protect her head from hitting the beam of the bed.

    Awwwww, XJX was mad about SM stating that allies have to right to meddle with personal affairs but instead let it pass and was more bothered about SM seemingly not having any confidence in herself and only thinking that she will be a disposed empress.

    Awwwww, XJX didn’t want to give SM too much of a shock and only gave a light peck (I guess he also wants to confirm her feelings first before actually giving her a proper kiss? hahaha our Prince Rui probably can’t bear to be rejected one more time again today. Also, he probably wants to arrange everything first and when all the roads are cleared, he will confess properly. <3)

    I've actually already finished google translating the raws but I still come here to read the proper translation. Because I know the things that will happen later on, I personally didn't view XJX's kabedon in the previous chapter in a negative light (and we see here in this chapter that he really is a gentleman). Although it was a bit forceful and intimidating, he never really intended to hurt SM and now we know that he was even guilty that she almost cried. I guess XJX's feelings at that moment were a combination of exhaustion (from having to journey through a "snow storm"), frustration (because SM is passive about the whole thing), anger (because he was kept in the dark about the recent events and if he came any later, something bad might have happened to SM–AGAIN), and of course haha jealousy (because so many heroes were willing to stand up for the beauty and HE CAME IN LAST). And then, when he is trying to confront our empress, she gets stubborn and only gives vague answers. I can actually feel XJX's frustration reach a maximum level there. I'm defending his kabedon haha one chapter late because I was waiting for this chapter. But seriously, XJX is definitely a gentleman and is way better than most other MLs in other novels.

    • i like it when you said so many heroes stand for the beauty and XJX is the last one 😂

      he claim he already help our empress and become the last one stand up for her really made him angry 😂

      at least i can understand that in this chapter. well, from the start even XJX looks like naughty or what he always become gentleman around SM


    • I did the same thing too… I google translate it coz i really want to know the story apart from reading the spoiler and thank god, the translating machine give quite okay translation…

      Xie jing xing is quite a gentleman… Upon seeing shen miao’s shoulder, he wrapped her tightly… And he only gave small peck to her… Truly, i like how xie jing xing is not really overbearing. And it’s quite understandable why she got angry to shen miao in previous chapter


  17. Did??!! XJX STOLE HER FIRST KISS??!!!???!

  18. Thank you for the translations!!! I’m always eagerly waiting to read the next chapter.

    I would like to thank the author for making XJX not a savage animal controlled by lust. It was cute that he went to cover her up instead of leering for long and that peck on the lips, which claims her but not in a frightening pushy, fast way. It’s really just a payback for SM’s drunk/sleepy kiss to him.

    I can’t wait to see how the rest of this develops!


  19. I knew XJX was going to be super angry at GY but I wasn’t expecting such a punishment lol!

    So, now XJX can properly manage the affairs of SM hahahaha

    I’m going to be re-reading this chapter lol!

  20. Why is it that every gift sent by Luo Ling was being taken by XJX. Could it be that XJX likes him. Haha. Jk

    No one could be so paranoid as XJX. Sending spies to SM suitors is really hilarous to read. Must guard my Jiao Jiao must always be on his mind. Lol.

    Perhaps JYS is cursing GY for being punished in the clock tower. Hehe. And I knew that tiger Jiao Jiao would be mistreated too. Poor tiger. One day it is dotted while the other day it is not.

    Cong Yang the number one gossiper of Great Liang wants to share what he had eavedrops but has no one to share to. Currently JYS, the man who exaggerate everything is on the tower.

    Aaaah finally, finally. But really, SM, after having this man enter your bedroom multiple times and seeing you in your middle garments as well, did you really think you could marry someone else? Tut-tut, the answer is no way! And don’t forget, you claimed he belonged to you and sealed the vow with a kiss, you gotta keeo your word and now is the moment, claim what’s yours! Hehehe useless to try to resist, deep inside your heart has already been moved, who said you can’t be a happy and loved Empress?
