Chapter 32: Mysterious Guest (Part 1)

Chu Jin Yao watched helplessly as the little boy ran towards the middle of the road with his head down. She widened her eyes in shock and called out, “Be careful!”

The little boy was initially squatting next to the cloth shop and later ran to the middle of the road without warning. Right then that entourage of officers and soldiers arrived in an instant with their iron hoofs. Terrified, Chu Jin Yao w jumped in the direction of the little boy without even thinking.

Chapter 31: An Unforeseen Event in the City Center (Part 3)

When the young attendant of Zhen Bao Ge saw the two beautiful young ladies standing arm in arm in the hall, one as gentle as the moon, the other as bright as the morning sun, he quickly ran over to greet, “Young Ladies, what do you want to see?”

The attendant of course knew that these were the distinguished guests from the residence of Marquis Chang Xing and going by the appearance and clothes of the two, they were most likely the Di-Young Ladies of the Marquis residence. He did not know why they were standing by themselves, but this was not important as it was enough for him to know that these were two big customers!

Chapter 31: An Unforeseen Event in the City Center (Part 2)

Sure enough, three to four days later, Prince Huai Ling Consort’s invitation arrived at the residence Marquis of Chang Xing. The Prince residence invitation was grand and elegant with gold foil embossed patterns at the four corners. Madam Yan sighed as she held the invitation, “As expected of the Prince residence, it is sure large-scaled. It is just an invitation that is thrown away after one use but they actually decorate it with real gold! This is truly…”

Madam Zhao felt ashamed of Madam Yan and turned her face away. The few of them were dressed in new clothes as they gathered at Old Furen’s before heading out when everybody else arrived. The other young ladies heard Madam Yan’s words and although they felt that Madam Yan was somewhat small-minded, they all understood in their hearts that the difference between the residence of Prince Huai Ling and the Marquis of Chang Xing could be seen in these insignificant details. How would the residence of the Marquis of Chang Xing be willing to use gold to emboss the invitations? But the residence of Prince Huai Ling did not care at all. Even if Marquis of Chang Xin splurged, it would not be of such a level. These gold and silver decorations could only used by the Imperial family.

Chu Jin Yao was considered late in arriving. She lived far away and it was not as convenient as the other young ladies. When she reached, Rong Ning Tang was already filled with people.

Old Furen was wearing a dark red with gold woven outerwear, siting upright on the Arhat bed. When she saw that almost everyone was here, she cleared her throat and gave a rare kind smile. “Your GuGu spoke to the Prince Consort upon returning home about our family’s matter. The old ancestor at the Prince residence liked it and the Prince Consort also liked our family’s young ladies. Your GuGu has passed the message back that after a few days the Prince Consort would officially send an invitation to invite our residence of Marquis Chang Xing for a visit. The messenger has already been sent back by her so it is estimated that in a few days’ time, the Prince Consort’s invitation would be delivered.”

Chapter 30: A Long Discussion in Confidence (Part 2)

Chu Jin Yao talked for a long time that she became thirsty in the end. She picked the teacup and took a sip. However, during this process, Qin Yi unexpectedly kept quiet and did not interrupt her.

After Chu Jin Yao moistened her throat, she looked carefully at his expression and asked softly, “Do you understand my meaning? How about we be quietly rebellious for once and use the Crown Prince as an example? You see that he has been sent to the border and it is rather tragic but because of this, all the officials in TaiYuan carefully protected him fearing that he would suffer from the slightest mishap. Moreover, I have heard from Father that there are numerous officials in the capital that offended the Emperor to speak for the Crown Prince and pled for him to be summoned back to the capital. See. even if the Crown Prince was unjustly sent away, behind the scenes, there are a lot of people that are silently good to him. We do not have a complicated identity like the Crown Prince and also do not have a tangled and intricate background like him, so the people that treat us well would only be more and purer!”

What was he angry about?

Qin Yi lowered his eyes. She did not know what he was thinking about, she waited for a while and when she did not receive his reply, she raised her head surprised, “What is wrong with you?”

Chapter 29: Scales of Deviation (Part 1)

Second Young Master laughed at himself, “Because of my poor health since young, I like reading these light books to escape the present and do not like the ways of Confucius and Mencius. One had not thought that the Crown Prince was the same. The Crown Prince is Empress Yuan’s Di-son and was taught and raised as a Crown Prince since birth. The cabinet ministers would watch him attentively and the high-ranking officials in court would constantly remind the Crown Prince. As a mighty son of Heavens like him, I really cannot figure out why he would like the same things as me.”

“Perhaps the Crown Prince grew up in the Eastern Palace and is under too much pressure, thus likes books that allow him to escape from the present?” Chu Jin Miao felt it was right the more she thought about it, “That is so. One fears the Crown Prince is a talented and sensitive person at heart and does not like the mundane happenings but was unable to change his identity. This is using books to express one’s emotions.”
