Chapter 1: The Daughter Returns (Part 1)

It was after the fifteenth day of the first lunar month in the twentieth year of Jian Xing. The New Year’s mood had disappeared, and each family and household had put their minds together to make living arrangements for the entire year. Those who were working for large households also quickly cleaned up and returned to their master’s family.

In the Residence of Marquis Chang Xing, a girl wearing a peach coloured Ruyi pattern top over an indigo pleated skirt with a double bun hairstyle, pushed the curtains open. The jovial smile that was previously seen stagnated upon seeing the approaching person.

Chapter 15: Hibiscus

After sending me back to the residence, Wei Tan returned to the barracks again.

I was used to it and would calmly express care and concern at the doors by asking him to take care. Upon returning to the room, I quickly wrote a letter to inform Li Shang that Wei Jue would be going on an expedition soon.

Chapter 13: Ruo Chan (Part 1)

It was said that during court, a decree drafted by Wei Jue was stamped with the Emperor’s jade seal. On it was a densely packed list of Generals, starting from Wei Jue, who had made meritorious contributions. As Wei Jue could no longer be bestowed with any more rewards, one could not hand the Imperial Seat to him, thus there was only gold and silver as reward under his name. Wei Tan was bestowed as the Marquis of HuaiYang, Wei Zhao was bestowed as the Marquis of ShanYang. The rest of the densely packed names listed numerous unheard titles such as Marquis Ting, Marquis Xiang and General titles.
