Chapter 111: Gu Yun’s Discovery

After the persons outside the cell left, Gu Yun and Zhuo Qing looked into the room which was completely engulfed in darkness. They just stood there like that and there was no movement in the dark at all. Zhuo Qing looked at Gu Yun puzzled, as if silently asking, was there truly someone there?

Gu Yun nodded her head. She had heard a strongly suppressing breathing from the corner. Pulling Zhuo Qing further away from the wooden fence, Gu Yun then approached the darkness and call out softly, “Hui Jun?”

My apologies for the slow/lack of response for the past few posts. Work has been crazy for the past weeks after my vacation. I love reading your responses so please continue to drop a comment!

Chapter 110: Earth Shattering Secret (Part 3)

After a few days of through investigation and the identification of the deceased personal items, the identity of the deceased was confirmed. She was a palace maid in the Imperial Palace by the name of Yi Yue. She had been missing for three days before the body was found in the well of the Eastern garden. As the Eastern garden was far off the Inner Palace, the well was rarely used and would only be use as an emergency to put out the fires in the eastern part of the Inner Palace.

Yan Hong Tian did not hand this case to the Board of Investigation thus Gu Yun also did not call upon Dan Yu Lan’s personnel, so she transferred Ge Jing Yun and Leng Xiao to her side.

Chapter 109: Earth Shattering Secret (Part 2)

A female corpse found in a well. This matter was not considered big nor small. Usually the matter would be reported to Gao Jing then it would be handed over to the Department of Investigations or the Imperial Household to investigate. When there was any conclusion then it would be reported up to the Emperor. But after Imperial Concubine Qing knew of it, her Ladyship went to personally view it and consequentially alerted the Emperor. Upon hearing that the Emperor went over, the Empress also hastily rushed over.

Next to the Eastern garden well, at one side it was a corpse that was just dredged out and it was soaked till it was white and had already started to rot. The other side of it was the most distinguished masters of the entire Imperial Palace.

Mysteries in the Imperial Harem: Chapter 108

Weirdly the raw source did not split the scene up when day(s) past, so I will be doing it else it would seem like everything happened in one night…

Chapter 108: Earth Shattering Secret (Part 1)

Ever since the last drunk moment, Yan Hong Tian did not go to Qing Feng Hall for half a month. Tonight when Haishi (modern timing: 9 – 11 pm) had passed, Ru Yi came over informing him that Qing Feng invite him over. Worried that something had happened to her, Yan Hong Tian quickly rushed over there. When he pushed open the door, he saw Qing Feng sitting on the swing under the tree with her ends of her dress and black hair fluttering inseparably.

Yan Hong Tian was instantly in a trance, as if he had seen the her a year before. That time she was also like this, with a smile on her lips and she sat quietly on the swing.

Mysteries in the Imperial Harem: Chapter 107

I imagine Fu Ling’s scene vividly like a drama… And I wanted to hug her as her heart broke…

Chapter 107: To Be With Child

Every three to five days, Fu Ling would bring Prince Han over to pay respects to her Mistress and also talk about things that happened in Yong Hua Palace. Mistress always listen quietly and occasionally looked at Prince Han but never carried him. Today, Fu Ling once again brought Prince Han over to pay his respects and only spoke less than the time to finish a cup of tea when Fu Ling felt that Qing Feng seemed preoccupied, her hand kept pressing her chest and her facial expression was not good.

Fu Ling worriedly asked, “Mistress, what is the matter?”

And… I am back and updates will be as per normal schedule (Mon and Thurs)!!!

Chapter 106: Losing The Soldier To Protect The Chariots (Part 2)

Gao Jing investigated for over half a month and finally confirmed that Yan Han was indeed the flesh and blood of Yan Hong Tian. Qing Feng concealed the pregnancy of a criminal and was punished with half a month of confinement and half a year of expenses. Chen Zhen was already in the Cold Palace and unless her death was required, there was nothing else to be punished. Afterwards, the Empress Dowager called the shots and punish her to abstain from meat like a vegetarian for three years.

Even though Qing Feng was confined, ever since then, Yan Hong Tian will stay over at Qing Feng Hall every night and at the end, Yan Han was also handed over to Qing Feng and Yong Hua Palace was bestowed. As such, Xin Yue Ning was so angry that she came to Qing Feng Hall to look for Qing Feng’s trouble and wanted to scratch her face but Qing Feng was not easy to deal with. After several encounters, Xin Yue Ning was unable to get anything out of it. Shui Xin was also behaving weirdly. When she wanted her to think of ways to deal with Qing Feng, she always told her not to be impatient and to wait and observe. Xin Yue Ning was recently very irritated.

Still 1 translation update this week… Normal schedule will return next week. Do drop a comment or two in my previous post on what novel to translate next. Thanks!

Chapter 105: Losing The Soldier To Protect The Chariots (Part 1)

Yan Hong Tian walked very quickly and Qing Feng chased without even thinking. When she reached her hand out to stop Yan Hong Tian and meet his surprised dark eyes, Qing Feng then realised that she was overeager but in any case, that child must be brought up by her. Avoiding Yan Hong Tian’s gaze, Qing Feng lowered her eyes and softly said, “Is the Emperor willing to have dinner with Chenqie?”

Qing Feng knew that Yan Hong Tian was looking at her. Even if she did not look up, she was able to feel his line of sight was much hotter than it was in the Cold Palace. After waiting for very long, Yan Hong Tian did not speak and Qing Feng was hesitating if she should raise her head when her hand got suddenly warmed as Yan Hong Tian held her hand. There seems to be a sighed by her hear which made Qing Feng thought if she heard wrongly.

Chapter 104: Forcefully Taking A Son (Part 2)

“It has been a long while Chen Zhen.”

“It has been a long while…” Chen Zhen was in somewhat of a trance, in fact it was only a short two month period, Qing Feng’s child died and now her face… Should have restored to its former appearance. Unfortunately… Even though it was beautiful, she seemed to be much colder than she was before. The pair of bright eyes was placid and cold that it made others not dare to look straight at them and Chen Zhen could not help but have mixed feelings.
