Chapter 34: The Crown Prince Awakens (Part 3)
Upon meeting Marquis Chang Xing, he would then have to meet the provisional and prefecture officials. There were endless troubles that one did not know how long one would be delayed. Tang Xin Yi thought about the Crown Prince, whose situation was still unknown, and really did not have the mood to accompany these officials and lords to casually talk, but due to the situation, he had no choice but to endure. Tang Xin Yi resisted his impatience and accompanied Marquis Chang Xing to play a round of TaiJiGua. Marquis Chang Xing still wanted to probe about Tang Xin Yi’s purpose of arrival when suddenly there were sounds of footsteps. A young soldier-like man quickly ran in, uncaring that there were visitors present, and hurriedly spoke, “GongGong, there is a letter.”
TaiJiGua (太极卦) – 1. Refers to a type of breathing technique which is an internal martial art to resist force with force (redirecting the attacking force back to the aggressor). 2. Implied meaning, in the novel it is used to describe the act of “pushing” the topic or responsibility to others and others will resist, deflect, channel the force back or to another victim and so on. Modern terms: Passing the buck.
