Chapter 10: Family Banquet (Part 2)

Wei Tan said, “ShangKe and ShangDong have been pacified and the Central Plains has been returned to the courts.” After finishing, he looked at me, “When I was returning, Duke Han was still the governor of LaiYang and Han Guang had married a new wife last month.”

I was astonished.

Chapter 10: Family Banquet (Part 1)

I could only walk up to Wei Tan and help him unbuckle the armour.

Previously when one was in the family in Chang An, I used to see Older Brothers unbuckling their amours. It was not difficult to undo it as one needed to first remove the belt then take off the shoulder armor and breastplate. It was only untying a few knots.

Daughter-in-Law of a Noble House: Chapter 9

There’s something strange in this novel… Usually the husband’s surname will be used with the Furen title and the female’s maiden surname will be used with Madam.

Wei Jue’s wife
Wei Furen or Madam Guo

But in this novel, the author indicated the female’s maiden surname instead. So in the raws, it became Guo Furen (Wei Jue’s wife) and Fu Furen (Wei Tan’s wife aka FL). It is strange so I have changed all of it to the correct terms in the translation instead of what was usually indicated in the raws.

Chapter 9: Returning Back to the City

With Wei Jue’s return, the Heavenly Son personally left the city to receive him. Under the beautiful blue skies, I accompanied Guo Furen as I watched the tens of thousands of horses amidst the dust, returning from the wilderness.

“Arrived!” Wei Rong, who was behind, said suddenly.

Chapter 8: Business

On this fine weathered day, there were a number of people praying in the temple.

Upon knowing that the new bride of the Prime Minister’s residence was coming over to pray, the temple acolyte quickly came over to greet. I politely exchanged some greeting words before following him in.

Chapter 6: Birthday Banquet (Part 2)

Wei Rong did not bring me to Wei An’s courtyard but nearby the kitchens. It was next to the firewood store. There was a simple wooden room and a small black burning kiln a few steps away.

Before reaching the doors, I heard sounds of wood knocking from inside.

Chapter 6: Birthday Banquet (Part 1)

Although the servants were bought for me, Wei Furen was the matriarch of the family.

During the journey, I had thought about the plea and led Ah Yuan to Wei Furen upon returning to the residence to tell her the story, from the past up till now, about the deep sentiments between master and servant and the separation between the living and dead. I did not conceal the matter of giving Ah Huan gold as that was from my dowry and naturally, it was up to my willingness to give.

Chapter 5: Labour Market

Wei Tan did not have many servants and all of them were brought along to the expedition. After the audience with the Heavenly One, Wei Furen instructed the steward to allocate servants in my courtyard.

Even though there was an abundance of servants in the Wei family, there was a shortage of maids. The steward asked for my opinion with great difficulty and I amicably replied that since it was the case, it was better to buy some from the labour market since I had not brought any maids over.

Chapter 4: Paying Respects

It was a troubling matter when a bride met the elders. Before entering the city, I had already dressed up in the inn.

YiZhuMu, Empress Dowager Liu, had treated me very well and personally conferred my dowry before her death. All the jewelries were items from the Palace. I did not use any gold or pearl hair ornaments as they were too eye-catching. One could not show off nor be too unadorned. Instead, one had to show one’s family influence in a low profile manner.
