Chapter 47: The search for one’s mom second spring 15 part 3/For the sake of my mother’s remarriage 15 part 3


[T/N: It is a 10k chapter. I divided it into parts. Sorry for the delay. This is the last part of this chapter]


What is the most talked-about topic among Capital’s madam was not about silk or jewellery, but rather the students who have come to Beijing to attend the imperial examination this year.

It has become a common practice for these madams to look into the candidate’s list before the start of the Imperial Examination. After that, these ladies will find someone to investigate these candidates and see which one has not yet married, and if their appearance is very outstanding, they will be included as the candidates for their son-in-law.

This time, the hot topic in the capital is the Jieyuan who was only a 15 years old teenager.

[T/N: Jieyuan – Top scorer in the provincial imperial examinations [fourth level of examination]. It seemed that there are six levels of examination in this arc.]

“Did you still remember the seven years old boy who was once rumoured in the capital city eight years ago? That Jieyuan this year is that child from eight years ago.”

A group of ladies gathered to share some gossip. Jiang Furen who sat within the crowd had somewhat a pleasant face as she listened to them discussing her husband’s disciple and simultaneously, her future son-in-law.

“He already able to become a Jieyuan at the age of fifteen years old. His future is promising.”

The one who commented this was Jing Furen, the wife of the capital magistrate. By fate or chance, her husband had managed to grab the Tanhua, on the same year when Jiang Shendao became the Champion. So Jiang Shendao had inwardly expressed his hate to this man so much that his teeth itched every time he saw that person.

Magistrate Jing official title was not high. It was only a fourth rank official. However, his jurisdiction is a bit special, and thus his status is far beyond the general fourth-rank officials. This is why Jing Furen can get along with the ladies from the first and second rank family so easily.

“I heard that this young talent is not only talented but also looks very handsome. It is comparable to Pan An’s reincarnation. I don’t know if there is already a marriage match.”

The house of magistrate currently has two daughters. One is a Di-daughter, while the other one is a shu-daughter [T/N Di = Legitimate- wife born, Shu=Concubine born.]

The ladies who were born in the Jing Magistrate household had inherited the beauty of her parents. They were well-praise within the circle. Jiang Furen, who had been paying attention to their words suddenly felt her eyes jumped. She sensed that her favoured son-in-law had become a slice of big, fat meat, and many people were eyeing for it.

“That child is indeed really good.”

Jiang Furen winked as she pretended not to be out of sort as she calmly drinks her tea.

“Listening to Jiang Furen’s words, it seems that you have seen that Jieyuan youth?”

Everyone’s attention suddenly shifted to Jiang Furen. Everyone had only heard about this child prodigy, but they had never actually met him. Therefore, Jiang Furen’s firm response seemed like she was familiar with that youth.

“You might not have known this, but that Jieyuan is exactly my husband’s disciples. As early as eight years ago, my husband had taken him in, so of course, I am familiar with him.”

In the future, it will not become a scandal if Jiang Liu were to yield such a bright prospect. After all, if Jiang Liu were to take a high official post, it was after all due to the mutual affection between a master and its disciple. Jiang Furen naturally did not intend to conceal it.

“What, that Jieyuan youth is a disciple of Jiang Daren!”

The lady, who had previously been dismissive of Jiang Liu looked shocked. If it was a mere ordinary Jieyuan, of course, it doesn’t matter to her no matter how rare he was. Granted even if he managed to become a Zhuangyuan [ T/N Champion – final/ the level six of imperial examination] this kind of individual could be found every three years. After all, those with a brilliant prospect for growth could only be counted with your finger.

But being the only disciple of Jiang Shendao is different. With him standing behind such a teacher, and he had already far surpassed those ordinary scholars.

In this way, the value of that Jieyuan youth is getting even higher in the eyes of these madams. Also if you turned him into your son-in-law, it is not like he will no longer be connected to the Jiang family.

This news started to spread widely, so much that even the Emperor had heard about Jiang Shendao’s genius disciples who had become a Jieyuan at the age of 15 years old.

*****

“My disciple’s article is pretty good. Truly befitting the young blooded, full of impetuous feeling.”

After the morning assembly, Emperial Jin Wen had called Jiang Shendao to his office to ask him about his disciple.

Jiang Shendao also had expected that the Emperor is going to ask him and had prepared his speech in advance.

“Young and impetuous?”

When Emperor Jin Wen heard those words, he becomes even more interested and was increasingly expecting this young scholar’s abilities. He already gotten fed up with the pedantic stereotypes of the minister that came from the predecessors’ era who had always told him that this and that could not be done. It made him feel that he, as the Emperor, was not as good as those ministers.

However, since he entered the court late, he was unable to gather competent ministers under his faction.

This time around, the imperial examination had become the mean for Emperor Jin Wen to find suitable officials to be cultivated as his power. With that thought, the disciple of Jiang Shendao has become one of the members on his list.

    *****

The most current news is no longer about the Jieyuan youth. After the examination, Jiang Liu had broken through the record of the imperial examination and became known as the Huiyuan youth. He will only need to wait for the palace examination to try and see if he can win the title of ZhuangYuan, setting a record of being a top scorer six times in a row.

[T/N: Once again, Jieyuan – Top scorer for the fourth level of examination. Huiyuan – Top Scorer for the fifth level of examination. Zhuangyuan/ champion – Top scorer for the final examination]

For this reason, many casinos had also opened their bid to bet on the odds of the winner among the exam candidates.

Unexpectedly, there are not many people who put their bet on Jiang Liu.

First, the odds set by the casino are too low. Putting a bet on Jiang Liu will not have given them much rewards. Apart from that, many people are not that optimistic about the performance of this young talent in the final hall test.

After all, he is still too young. He may not be able to endure the majesty aura of the Emperor and well as the inspections coming from the other ministers. Even his achievement of being a top scorer for the fifth-time continually was considered as a miracle by others—however, many of them expecting that he will be able to win Tanhua based on his appearance.

By contrast, the other two candidates, a 37-year-old, was considered as a mature and stable candidate. Another candidate is the son of an official who is also a Xueshi and holds a post in the cabinet. Their family had produced two Champions and fifteen Jinshi [T/N Palace Graduate]. During this Imperial Examination, this official’s family had let their best children who have been carefully cultivated to participate in this time around. The chances of these two candidates to win the champion if much higher compared to Jiang Liu.

As the person being discussed, Jiang Liu also did not have it easy this time.

The reason why he was able to come all the way so smoothly was partly that he had eaten the Yizhi Dan. Apart from this pill which had helped in making learning more accessible, another part of it was because the original had left him with the memory about the exam questions as well as the preferences of the officials who reviewed the exam.

These two aspects had complemented each other, thus enabling him to prepare before the imperial examination by allowing him to appeal to the examiner by writing articles that pleased and applauded the officials.

Of course, there was also another factor that cannot be ignored, which was his triple top scorer achievement and his age.

To some extent, as long as you work hard on it, you will be surely able to get a good result. Now that the emperor had just entered the court, even if multiple, never-seen-before, excellent candidates were to appear at the same time, it will only be considered as a good omen for the future of the country.

With this kind of mentality, as long as his paper can be one among the best in the examination papers, the first place will belong to him.

He had been placed the top scorer five times consecutively, but for the last examination. Jiang Liu started to become nervous.

This examination was very significant to him, so he did not only want to complete his task in this world but also to live up to the expectation of his teacher.

His teacher was the champion during the previous emperor’s reign. If he were to only took the second place or the third-place [T/N Tanhua], it would have brought shame to his teacher. Jiang Liu didn’t like to owe people’s kindness. His master has treated him with sincerity. Therefore, he also needs to help his teacher earn his face back. [T/N Brought glory to his teacher]

Time passed quickly, and soon he was on his way to the palace to sit for the examination.

Jiang Liu, who was among a group of older candidates, looked particularly conspicuous. Emperor Jin Wen who sat on the dragon chair [T/N Throne] caught on the first sight of the existence of a young man who looked not only outstanding but also handsome. Therefore he was able to guess his identity.

Not only did Emperor Jin Wen, but even the group of examiners on the spot also realised that this young man was the disciple of Jiang Shendao.

For a while, the pressure that Jiang Liu faced was even higher.

This time, the exam question was written personally by Emperor Jin Wen. The topic was straightforward, but many candidates were afraid to write it.

Even though the question is simple, yet the content is terrifying—two words – Political Reform.

The time of one incense has passed, and there are still a few people who took up their pen and started to write though there was only one exception. Jiang Liu. At this time, he had already calmed down and wholly immersed himself on the topic.

Emperor Jin Wen walked down the dragon seat and started to patrol before he stops in the middle and stood on Jiang Liu’s side, watching the articles written by him. His eyes were evenly stunned that he almost clapped his hand.

The candidates on the side naturally did not miss the Emperor’s expression. This made the pressure on him got even higher as he got even more hesitant to write.

At the end of the examination, many of the candidates had their forehead covered with sweat. They dragged their soft and weak leg as they walked out of the hall. All of the papers were then bound up and were sent to the examination room, only waiting for the top ten candidates to be selected, so that Emperor Jin Wen could look through it.

The top 10 papers had been contested by ministers, with Jiang Liu’s paper being the most controversial.

The article was good, of course. The use of words was exquisite, the composition was well-knit, the classics were quoted excellently and people can’t help but applaud for the case. But the content of the article made the old ministers felt that it was too deviant, too provocative, and a challenge to the existing regulations, especially in his article that encourages widows to remarry, which utterly humiliating to them.

If they remember correctly, Jiang Liu’s mother is a widow. For Jing Liu to make such a big fuss, they wanted to know if he dares to encourage his mother to remarry?

To cater to the Emperor’s preferences, this kind of person really knows how to be flattering. If he were to be chosen as an official, he probably would become the Emperor’s jester.

But they had seen the Emperor’s performance, and it was clear that the Emperor appreciates his article. If they didn’t send it up, he probably going to be furious.

Moreover, Jiang Liu was still Jiang Shendao’s disciple. Although Jiang Shendao did not become an invigilator this time around to avoid suspicion, everyone was still in the same department, and they have to give him some face.

After some dispute, Jiang Liu’s paper was presented alongside with other papers, only to be pressed to the end.

When Emperor Jin Wen looked through the nine other papers, his face was looking rather angry, but when he saw the last roll of paper belonged to Jiang Liu, his face started to become much happier in a blink of an eye.

“Jiang Liu had become the top scorer for the last five examinations. It is better to set him as the champion. By becoming a consecutive top scorer for the sixth time, it will also become a beautiful story for the citizen.”

With the circle of the red pen on Jiang Liu’s name, Jiang Liu position as a champion was undisputed.

Some of the ministers were kind of “you look at me” and “I look at you”. In the end, they decided not to have a dispute with the Emperor over this little thing.

As for the second place and the Tanhua, they decided to pick up the other two popular candidates for the champion. The 37-year-old candidate became the 2nd place while the son of the cabinet minister become the third place.

The ministers were also satisfied with the result.

Afterward, except for the second rank candidates, which was drafted by Emperor Jin Wen, the remaining lists were drafted by the marking officials, before they were finally handed over to Emperor Jin Wen to be stamped.

After time for a joss stick to be burned, the candidates waiting outside the palace finally were informed of the result. Some people like it; others were sad while some felt that the stone in their hearts was finally gone.

Unable to take part in the examination papers, Jiang Shendao, who was outside the palace with a group of officials, also learned the result for the examination.

When others knew that Jiang Liu had become the champion, all of them naturally smiled and congratulated him. Only Jiang Shendao had a blank face so much that others could not interpret his current mood.

Everyone’s heart lamented on Jiang Shendao’s incorruptible will. Even if his disciple was placed as a champion, he did not even appear to be moved by it. He was truly deep and unmeasurable.

But, they didn’t know that the little man in Jiang Shendao’s heart was currently already crying out.

Flower snatcher! My flower snatcher, ah!

*****

“Over here!”   

“Is that the Champion? He seems very young!”

On this day, the streets were crowded, and the teahouses along the roads were all booked by the madam of the wealthy families. All of them were hiding behind the windows as they were quietly looking at the parade of the champion and the flower snatcher [Tanhua= 3rd place]

Today, the common people’s daughter did not have to observe the line between man and woman interaction. Many of them stood on both sides of the street, holding flowers and fruits in their hands as they prepare to throw it to the champion once he passed through the streets.

Jiang‘s family was also not an exception. Jiang Furen has booked the best room since early morning and she also had considerably invited Meng Yun-niang to sit with them.

At this time, the parade had already reached their location. Jiang Furong too had no other choice but to throw her long prepared purse towards Jiang Liu who sat on the tall horse.

It seemed as if the two of them shared the same heart and soul. As Jiang Furong threw over her purse, Jiang Liu looked up and his eyes collided to her hiding position.

With a gentle wave, he raised his hand and snatched her purse up in the air. He also did not forget to wave his hand and smiled in her direction.

“Ah, ah, ah! Did that handsome champion smile at me just now?”

“Of course not! That champion is smiling at me.”

It doesn’t matter if he doesn’t smile, but once he did, not a few of well-bred young ladies found their soul to be flown away as their heart was captured by it.

For a while, many flowers and fruits were thrown towards Jiang Liu, but he deftly avoided those things from falling on him. The only thing that sat firmly in his hand was the embroidered purse that was thrown by Jiang Furong.

This strange move attracted others’ attention.

Some of the ladies sent their maid to inquire about the owner of the box where Jiang Furong was located. When they learned that the owner of the box was Jiang family’s madam and the young lady, they finally linked the relationship between Jiang Liu and Jiang Shendao. They guessed that the Jiang family might have a wish to match-make Jiang Liu with their daughter and suddenly they were discouraged from trying to recruit Jiang Liu as their son-in-law

As for those young girls, they started to tear up a few handkerchiefs with envy when they thought of that handsome young man who had just walked past them on the streets. Why could not their daddy find that kind of disciple to bring home for them?

As the involved party, Jiang Furong naturally paid more attention to Jiang Liu’s action.

The previous ambiguous atmosphere seemed to be smashed around finally and Jiang Furong’s heart was full of sweetness.

In this happy atmosphere, only one person’s mood was extraordinarily complicated.

Jiang Shendao, who was with his peer, looked far away into the street and couldn’t help but sigh.

It seemed that he and his disciple’s beauty was being held back by their talents, ah!

The Analects of Righteous Father’s Collapse [ Fast Wear] Chapter 47 Part 2

Author: 打字机N号

Chapter 47: The search for one’s mom second spring 15 part 2/For the sake of my mother’s remarriage 15 part 2


[T/N: It is a 10k chapter. I divided it into parts. Sorry for the delay.]

When he got home, the first thing that Jiang Liu did was to take out the piece of paper from his robe’s lapel and then pull out another pile of documents from the dark corner of his bookcase and neatly stacked them together.

These were Jiang Furong’s masterpieces. Some of them were her works, while others were something that she specially prepared to help Jiang Liu’s cheat. However, he never used any of them.

Although Jiang Liu can’t write a good poem, he still managed to nurture some appreciation ability. In his view, these excellent works are comparable to those of female poets like Xie Daojun, Hua Rui, and Li Qingzhao.

Jiang Liu, who was also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) believed that Jiang Furong’s works have a great significance to China’s modernisation and thus could bring great importance to the country’s transformation move in the future.

He felt that it would be a pity to let this poem buried in the passage of time. Therefore, Jiang Liu decided to collect all these poems silently and intended to pass them on to the future generation.

On the other side, Jiang Furong held into the bag of preserved candied fruit. Before she could enter her courtyard, she was stopped by Jiang Furen who had been looking for her. [T/N: Furen – Madam/Mrs]

“Did you went to the front yard again?”

Looking at the direction her daughter came from, Jiang Furen watched her daughter’s reaction while feeling upset about it.

Although this is their home, her daughter had made too frequent trips to the front yard to find Jiang Liu. She felt that Jiang Furong was not being reserved enough and thus needed to be more careful of her behaviour.

“Mother.”

Jiang Furong hid her hand as she called out to her mother in shame.

“You, ah, you.”

Jiang Furen could only sigh. She and her husband had let their daughter accompanied their son to learn the four books and five classics as well as writing poetry and songs. They hoped that with this exposure, she would be able to see things clearly and understand the general situation. This era had too many constraints on women. Because of that, Jiang Furen wishes that her daughter could freely express herself at her own home yet her daughter still has to marry out in the future. Therefore, some rules still need to be learned early.

Every so often, she regretted that she had let her daughter learned too many things. Since her worldview had expanded, it will become more painful for her daughter when she was forced to constraint herself within her small courtyard and home in the future.

This daughter of her was too intelligent. Her husband had often lamented whenever they discussed their daughter. With her abilities, it would be nice if she is a man, but she is, after all, a woman, and not all men can accept a more intelligent and insightful wife than they were. Especially since their daughter also did not have an appearance that could confuse a man.

Often than not, being intelligent is the most significant error for a married woman. [T/N of course in the context of ancient times]

“Ah Fu, from today onwards, I want you to put away all those poems and songs. You should honestly start to learn from me on how to become a wife and manage your household. Furthermore, you should also learn the feminine arts like embroidery and needlework. This is the skill that a woman should learn.”

Jiang Furen paused for a moment before continued: “There are still about the front yard. I want you to go there less. In another year, you will reach marriageable age. Therefore, there are some things that you have to avoid.”

“Mother!”

Jiang Furong was dumbfounded. She didn’t expect that her mother will say such a thing.

She was smart and quick-witted. She understands the concern that her mother’s had over her if she pondered on it a little bit.

Her appearance was average at most, and she already noticed it when she started to attend various banquets at the age of ten. The man in this world is fickle. Although the selection criteria for the main wife was always based on the family background, but still, which man doesn’t love beauty? Although she could become the main wife based on her moral character and upbringing, however, without a doubt, it will be challenging for her to get the sole love from her future husband.

In this era, it was rare to find a man who will refuse the opportunity to take in a concubine like how her father was. She also not a naïve person. She is afraid that the best ending that she could get after marrying is to have her husband’s respect while continued to help her husband managed the household as she watched him ushered in petite and young concubine into their home.

Jiang Furong is a woman with grand ambitions, how could she be reconciled to live so humbly behind that kind of man.

However, Jiang Furong felt that there is still a young man who might be different from other common men.

When Jiang Furong was very young, what she often heard from her parents was their lamentation on why she was not a man, and how that she could not display her talents in public. Yet, that boy was different.

Whenever she had a new work, he always showed his surprises over her abilities and solemnly told her that she had a great talent. So much that her poetry will surely be passed on to the future generation.

That boy did not feel sorry that she was born a woman, and recognised that even if she is a woman, she should have her ambitions.

Self-esteem, self-love, self-confidence, and self-improvement. These four phrases were something that the young boy had taught her. Jiang Furong thought that despite being born as a woman, as long as she followed this teaching, she will not be inferior to any man.

“What is in your hand?”

Jiang Furen looked at her silent daughter. She felt that her words just now were too heavy; thus, she could not help but feel distressed. Just as she planned to comfort her daughter, she found out that her daughter had been hiding something from her. Since the time she stopped her daughter, she had not seen her showing her hand to the front.

“No, nothing.”

Jiang Furong’s sweet memories were interrupted suddenly. Jiang Furong’s heart was beating like a drum as her mother’s eyes bored into her.

“Hmm?”

Hearing the warning in Jiang Furen’s voice, Jiang Furong honestly passed the preserved fruit candy that Jiang Liu had given to her.

“It this from Liu’er?”

Jiang Furen guessed the origin of this candied fruit when she saw her daughter’s vigorous action. At this time, she couldn’t help but having a particular thought. This thought slowly magnified in her heart.

******

Jiang Furen returned to her courtyard and waved her maid away. She then sat on her bed, thinking.

When Jiang Liu was seven years old, he was accepted by her husband, and since then he had been the only disciple of Jiang Shendao. Naturally, being able to observe him carefully, Jiang Furen was already familiar with this child’s character. If her daughter were to be betrothed to him, she for sure would not be wronged by the other person.

In particular, the two children had known each other from their childhood, and with this sentiment, even if Jiang Liu could not avoid taking in a concubine, he surely will not be the kind of person who will indulge the concubine and let them stepped on the main wife.

However, there were still other two things that Jiang Furen was hesitant about.

The first point was that Jiang Liu is still a Xiucai [T/N: Scholar] with the ordinary family background while her husband is an Imperial tutor. Her husband is also simultaneously holding a post at Imperial Hanlin Academy as a second-grade official. In terms of status, this pair of children seemed to be very unsuitable to be paired up.

Jiang Furen is not a person who favours the rich and disdain the poor. Instead, many people around the world have their perception of status and family. If she were to betroth her daughter to a poor and humble family, she was afraid that some people would speculate that her daughter had some unmentionable illness for the family to let her marry into such lowly position.

[T/N: Unmentionable illness =  Venereal disease. Typically come from sexual intercourse. So people might assume that the person had that disease from having a relationship with a man before marriage thus losing her innocence and had no other choice but to marry a humble person = poor person]

For the sake of his daughter’s reputation, she still needs to consider the thought of the masses. Therefore, she did not dare to act as a matchmaker for these children hastily.

Her second concern was regarding Jiang Liu widowed mother.

Jiang Furen did not have many contacts with Meng Yun-niang. However, she knew that Jiang Liu’s mother was a tenacious and frank woman. Yet, Jiang Furen did not dare to assume that such a woman will not have the feeling of pettiness and possessiveness over her children.

Even Jiang Furen, who was known for her open-mindedness, after her eldest son married his wife, she also inevitably harboured some hatred towards her daughter-in-law. If this were to be changed to Meng Yun-niang who had dedicated her entire thought and effort to this one son of her, it might have worsened. In the future, her daughter will need to face her mother-in-law day and night. Therefore, there might be many disagreements between them on the account that Meng Yun-niang was the one who had given birth to Jiang Liu.

The world values filial piety. Even if her daughter came from a family with a higher status, but the other party could also use her position as the mother-in-law to suppress her daughter to death. Everything depends on her mother-in-law’s eye.

Because of these two points, Jiang Furen hesitated and could not make up her mind.

But in this world, which marriage is perfect? Especially for her daughter. She couldn’t appear to be excellent in the eyes of others. Since Jiang Furen loves her daughter dearly, she wishes to put much consideration into this matter. It just that her daughter was fond of Jiang Liu and this point alone enough to cover up many of Jiang Liu’s shortcomings.

When Jiang Shendao came back from the front yard, Jiang Furen could not hold back and decided to discuss the feasibility of this marriage with her husband.

“You said that you wanted to act as a matchmaker to both Liu ‘er and A’ Fu?”

Jiang Shendao drank hot tea and thought about this match.

“The two children had been innocent playmates, Liu ‘er also had been my sole disciple. It could not be better than to match-make them.”

Jiang Shendao was the kind of person who will defend the person he favours despite knowing that that person was in the wrong. If he liked it, no matter how good or bad it was, he will intentionally and unintentionally indulge that person. If not, how could Jiang Furong, in this era which was so strict in regards to the interaction between men and women, could be so bold as to enter the front yard and developed such deep feelings with Jiang Liu?

“Moreover, our daughter’s beauty is matchless, with her behaviour and appearance, these two children will match each other well.”

Jiang Shendao laughed out loud. If these two outstanding talents were to be paired together, his grandchildren in the future would certainly be cute. Then, if he were to cultivate them carefully, every one of them will be able to become the candidate for the Tanhua, won’t they? [T/N: Tanhua or flower snatcher. The third place in the Imperial examination. Usually given to a handsome and talented man.]

When she heard her husband’s boast, Jiang Furen could only sigh.

Even if she loves her daughter, she can’t put the word “beauty” on her face.

In general, in regard to his countenance, Jiang Liu is indeed an excellent candidate to become her daughter’s spouse. In the future, her daughter’s children’s appearance will not be too ugly as long as they were to follow their father’s gene. Therefore, for the sake of the next generation’s appearance, her worries about Jiang Liu’s disadvantages also could be overlooked.

“But I am not in a hurry. I have agreed for him to participate in this year’s imperial examinations.  Therefore, we will until the end of the examination to proceed with this matter, lest he will become distracted and thus might affecting his performance in the examination.”

Although he already had this idea in his heart, Jiang Shendao felt that they didn’t need to act so urgently. His disciples will be fifteen this year, and his daughter is yet to reach the marriageable age. He can wait until the end of the imperial examination to discuss this matter.

“Liu ‘er are going to participate this time around?”

This came as a surprise to Jiang Furen. This time, Jiang  Liu is going to participate in the imperial examination. Even if only managed to become a Juren, there will be no problem for her to match-make Liu ‘er with her daughter. After all, are there any people who managed to become a Juren when they were only at the age of 15 years old?  With this kind of talent worth of training, what’s more, he is still the disciple of her husband, who dare to quip if she were to bind her daughter with him? [T/N: Juren = Successful candidate if the Imperial Provincial Examination]

“Mmm.”

Jiang Shendao sipped his tea comfortably. This time, his disciples will be able to help him bring the flower back.



[T/N Flower = Tanhua. I’m not sure if anyone able to guess. Yes. Jiang Shendao has a particular obsession over Tanhua [3rd place/ flower snatcher] He felt that he is handsome so he should get the Tanhua position. He actually despised getting the champion/ 1st place. One of the reasons why he picks Jiang Liu is because he is a talented and BEAUTIFUL child. He felt Jiang Liu would be able to help him redeem his failure. LOL.]

The Analects of Righteous Father’s Collapse [ Fast Wear] Chapter 47 Part 1

Author: 打字机N号

Chapter 47: The search for one’s mom second spring 15 part 1/For the sake of my mother’s remarriage 15 part 1

T /N: This is MTL work. I tried to edit as best as I could, any mistake plz do put your comment and I will edit it ASAP. This is my first attempt on Chinese novel so please cheer me up! I hope you will find this novel as interesting as I do.

I know I have been missing since last year. I am sorry. I am not dropping this, though [Boss gege] might be facing such decision. Currently, I am quite busy IRL, attending courses in tailoring which suck the energy out of me as well as my time. It was basically a skill class that starts and 8 and ends at 5. OTL. No excuses though, but I will try my best to set things back in. Cheers!

Since this is a

It is a 10k chapter. I will divide it into four parts. Sorry for the delay. I will try to end this arc by February.


Eight years went by fast. Although Jiang Shendao had a bit problem from being too narcissistic, however, Jiang Liu had to admit that he was an excellent teacher. Under his guidance, the knowledge that Jiang Liu gained had far exceeded the original.

There were many things happened in these eight years.

For example, Emperor Jin Yang died and the 14-year-old Crown Prince was immediately enthroned. The late Emperor had also left several ministers to assist the young Emperor with the government until he reached the age to sit on the throne.  And only last year did the young Emperor Jin Wen finally got married and officially began to head the court.

Jiang Shendao who was appointed as the Crown Prince’s Taifu [T/N : Great Tutor] had taught the prince about the political affairs as well as the way to conduct himself as the Emperor. Therefore, he was obviously under the new Emperor’s banner. Since Emperor Jin Wen had started to take part in the court, he obviously intended to cultivate his power and tried to fight against a few aides who refused to give up their hold of the court to the young Emperor.

Jiang Liu, on the other hand, had brought the popular tofu recipes in his generation to the current era by fermenting the bean curd to produce the stinky tofu… To meet the massive demand from the market, Meng Yun Niang had bought a couple of little girls to help her, the tofu while the finished products sold by Hu Guirong in their shop. This had greatly relieved their family’s economic pressure.

These eight years also had proven to be enough for two children who had never met each other before to cultivate sincere and beautiful childhood memories.

*****

“When Daddy comes, tell him that you wrote this poem, or else Daddy’s are going to punish you again.”


Jiang Furong stood tiptoed outside the window as she handed a piece of paper to Jiang Liu’s hand. The content on that piece of paper was written in beautiful regular script [T/N: Style of Calligraphy]. Although he had yet to read it, the writing alone was already looked pleasing to his eye.


“Whether it was you or I wrote the poem, the teacher will be able to tell it in a glance. My little ancestor, are you planning to help me or harming me, ah?” [T/N: Jiang Liu called her Xiao Gunainai / little aunt]


Jiang Liu always felt that the hard written poem that he produces was pretty good. However, when he compared it to this Xiao Shimei of his, the least bit of his self-confidence was ground to the ground. [T/N: Daughter of one’s teacher (younger)]

Even after many years of studying with a famous teacher like Jiang Shendao, Jiang Liu’s accomplishments in his poems had not made much progress, and Jiang Liu felt that it was because he was a vulgar person to the bones. Because of this, he could not write that sort of highbrow art and literature.

However, although Jiang Furong is young, she has a great deal of creativeness in regards to poetry. Jiang Shendao often lamented that if she was a born male, she would probably become a famous poet.

Unfortunately, she is a girl. Even if she wrote excellent poetry, it could only be revealed to her family.


“I come to you with good intention to help you and yet you do not know how to appreciate it.”


Contrary to the proud attitude that she showed in front of Jiang Liu, Jiang Furong was usually a calm and gentle girl in front of her parents. Currently, she was pouting and stamping on her feet as she demanded Jiang Liu to return her piece of paper.

“What should I do then to show my appreciation to you?”

Jiang Liu folded the piece of paper carefully and stuffed it inside the lapel of his robe. Then taking advantage that there was no one around, he fished out a preserved fruit bundled up inside the butter paper and hand it to the person in front of him: “This is your favourite. Xu’s candied fruit, I queue up for a long time yesterday to get you this. Don’t say that I don’t think of you.”


“Cough!”


Jiang Shendao stood at the door and coughed.

Jiang Furong with a blush on her face quickly took the candied fruit from Jiang Liu’s hand and ran away with her skirt fluttering around.


“Teacher.”

Seeing that his teacher was already back, Jiang Liu returned to his original position and then handed over the poems he had just written.

“Hum.”

Jiang Shendao took the poem and stared at his precious disciple. As for the scene that happened just now, he didn’t comment much on it.

Eight years was enough for Jiang Shendao to understand his students. If Jiang Liu’s character was flawed, he was afraid that Jiang Furong would not
be so voluntarily to come to the front yard to get in touch with Jiang Liu.


“It has more than enough artistry, but it still lacking spirituality.”


Despite his comment, Jiang Shendao himself also knew that this is the limit of his disciple.

However, although there is a lack of spirituality, the poems written by his disciples did not possess any problems in terms of its structural rhythm. This level of work was sufficient for him to deal with the needs of the imperial examinations. After all the examination was not focusing on the poem alone.


“This time, I will let you sit for the triennial provincial imperial exam.”


Jiang Shendao had detained this disciple of his for eight years. The first reason was that Jiang Liu was not yet mature. Secondly, Jiang Shendao felt that Jiang Liu was too eye-catching; therefore, he needed to curb it in order not to be in the limelight.

But now, it is different. With the new Emperor trying to establish his power, the most important things that he needs are support from his officials. He estimated that the new Emperor is going to precede over the preliminary round of imperial examination to select talented people for his faction. Naturally, it should be someone that fit the best interest of the new Emperor, befitting his title as the [Son of Heaven].

Although Jiang Liu was still somewhat young, the age of the new Emperor was also not that old. With his understanding of the new Emperor who had always been pressed and held down by several assistant ministers for a long time, the other party might be aggressive and appreciate innovative thinkers. Therefore, he should welcome all these young talents.

This is an opportunity for Jiang Liu to soar ahead and display his skills and capabilities.


“Yes!”


Jiang Liu’s eyes instantly lit up.

He has been waiting for this for a long time.

Quick Transmigration, oppressive slag: Boss gege excessive spoiling Chapter 25

Chapter 25 Task 1: Brother, my fiancé derailed (24)

Author: Táng yǒu cháng’ān

T/N: Plz comment on any mistake. I will edit it ASAP.


Why are you so happy?

Is it because of that person is in the crew?

Because you can finally enter the crew and see your fiancé?!



Xi Chen Zhao who had always been proud of his restraint, suddenly felt that he was facing a great challenge to control himself.

Because, when he thought of that possibility, a kind of anger and anxiety that could not be restrained filled his heart.


He is not happy.

Very unhappy.

He genuinely wants to. He absolutely wants to – he wanted to let the world no longer have that man. To never let her see that guy ever again!


“Why do you want to become an extra?”

“I have never been an extra, so I am very curious about it.”


Tong Su gently pulled his sleeves; her apricot eyes were sunny and bright. Like the black pill in the mercury, the black against the white was clear and vivid.


Gege, I really like it!”


Even though he was unhappy but after looking at the radiant light in her eyes, he still nodded.


“Well, if you want to do it, then you can try it.”


Tong Su happily nodded again and again.


Gege, you are so good!”


He gently touched her head.

The person in charge was already shouting for everyone to gather to enter the crew. Seeing that Tong Su hurriedly told her goodbye to Xi Chen Zhao.

Xi Chen Zhao took his phone and dialled.


“…… Start the acquisition of a suitable entertainment company. Prepare the broker and marketing team.”


The subordinates on the other side of the phone were extremely shocked.


“Xi-zong, is our company going to advance to the entertainment circle? Would you like to hold a meeting with the board of managers to allocate the resources?”

“No need, I will provide the resources myself. I don’t want the group to be involved in this. Whatever is needed for a person to debut, you just need to arrange it immediately.”


There was no need for the big company to have their hand in this. He alone able to support her. Even if she just said it in passing, he would still like to prepare everything for her in advance.

Of course, the most important thing was.

It will be more convenient for him to isolate her and that man.

Tong Su did not know that her brother had set a brokerage company solely to serve her just from her careless remarks.

As for her, the reason she wanted to enter the crew as an extra was to complete her task.

Ji Yu had secured a position for Lan Shuer in the crew.

In the plot, Lan Shuer had used the drama [Chaotianzi] to ruthlessly pit the original.

It was the classic “slain by borrowed knife.”

She borrowed the knife from Director Zhang and his wife, and the person who killed in this scuffle was the original. Director Zhang and his wife were the famous and loving couple in the entertainment industry. Director Zhang was a well-known director while his wife was the screenwriter. This drama “Chaotianzi” was a costume drama that had been remade based on the historical fact. It was a drama that the husband and wife had carefully prepared for several years.

When Mrs Zhang accidentally saw the image of the original, she felt that Xi Tong Su was very consistent with a certain role in her script and wanted to invite her to appear in the drama.

The original owner was from a rich family; therefore, Mrs Zhang could not find a connection to contact her. Thus, she entrusted the scripts to the at that time, “Miss Xi’s best friend” Lan Shuer, to convey the invitation.

Will Lan Shuer sincerely passed the message?

How could that be possible!

Lan Shuer hated the fact Mrs Zhang valued Xi Tong Su. Therefore, she decided not to say anything to Xi Tong Su and immediately reported to Mrs Zhang.


“Ai. she is the eldest daughter if an affluent family. She is not willing to enter this circle. I have persuaded her saying that this script was extraordinary. But Tong Su…. Tong Su really shouldn’t. But the implication is that she didn’t like your work and she also not interested in it so she flatly refused.”


Mrs Zhang’s character was so popular so how could she swallowed this kind of insult.

After the release of “Chaotianzi, it got so popular that the media were chasing after them continuously. At that time, Mrs Zhang had spoken at the press conference about this incident thus letting the original experience inhuman net violence.

The original owner, therefore, had suffered from depression.

Net abuse, her parents and brother died, and the group went bankrupt. Under these triple pressure, her severe depression broke out and the original finally could not stand it and committed suicide.

Tong Su eyes’ cool down and looked frivolous.

In the original plot, Lan Shuer had pushed the original down, step by step.

This time, it’s time for her to taste the flavour of reaping what one has sown as she sent her down to hell!

Chapter 24 Task 1: Brother, my fiancé derailed (23)

Author: Táng yǒu cháng’ān

T/N: Plz comment on any mistake. I will edit it ASAP.


Within a month, Xi Chen Zhao able to complete a project worth nearly 10 billion yuan, and in the same duration of space, it can also allowed Ji Yu and Lan Shuer to squeeze themselves in into the cast of Zhang Dao’s new film while Tong Su was observing them from the sidelines.

The “Chaotianzi” crew has booked the most famous Tang Palace in the film city.As the most popular costumes drama of this year, everyone knew that the crew must have a hard time.

Whether it was a fan or a group of extra, all of them gathered at the gate of the filming set as they waited anxiously.

When Tong Su and Xi Chen Zhao walked to the nearby place, the front door was about to open and the person in charge came out with a droopy eyelid as he spoke carelessly.


“Looking for 30 extras today. We will pay 50 dollars for a day. Whoever wanted to enter, come in!”


The crowds started to swarm forward and yelled.


“Choose me! Choose me!”


Fifty dollars were not much, but this was Director Zhang’s crew. If the movie was successful, even if they could only become the background guard, it also showed their qualifications.

Xi Chen Zhao did not mind this, he only here to accompany his sister to look around. Therefore. As he was about to leave with Xi Tong Su, his sister suddenly excitedly said.


Gege, I would like to try.”


Before he could say anything, he felt that the hand that had been holding his got loose, and the little girl left him as she ran forward.


“I also wanted to sign up!”


She didn’t open her mouth before, but as soon as she opened her mouth, the crisp voice immediately drew attention.

The person in charge who recognized her identity was about to exclaim [Xi…] but he instantly swallowed the word that was about to come out.

This… isn’t this… Xi Tong Su?

The girl who was smiling and walked towards him was fair and beautiful. Her blue dress also outlined her body beautifully.

The skirt looked like a simple cut. However, when you look at it closely, you will find that the fabric was not an ordinary solid colour. Instead, the printed dye appeared to be like the sea of cloud that embellished the hem of her skirt, making her temperament appeared excellent and unrivalled.

As for the man beside her, he was the handsomest man he ever saw, even more handsome than the film Emperor, Ji Yu.

The man’s countenance was somewhat cold and his eyes looked especially fierce and taciturn. His thin lips were pursed up while his chilled gaze makes it so people unable to stop from taking a second look on him.

That guy and this girl seemed to be incomparable to other human beings.

However, fans and those extras were not as cautious. Many of them quickly called out upon recognition.


“It’s Xi Tong Su!”

“Mr Ji Yu fiancé, Miss Xi!”

“Miss Xi, are you exploring the film set and looking for Ji Yu?”

“Hahaha, I already said that they are a very loving couple. Those paparazzi were the one who spread that rumour. How could my Ji Yu derail?”

Tong Su raised her finger to her mouth and shushed the surrounding people.


“Everyone keeps your voice small. Don’t bother the crew’s shooting progress.”


She then blinked her eyes before continued.


“I did not come to visit the film location today. I was just curious about how the drama will be filmed. So I wanted to experience being an extra. Today is so hot, so I will invite everyone to drink. Therefore, can everyone help me keep this as a secret?”


The fans couldn’t help but smiled. As for the other extras, they also could not help but nod. Only the person in charge seemed as if he wanted to cry.

Although she said that she was here as an extra, she was obviously an empress who was making a round to visit someone at the filming set!

While the outsider didn’t know about it, but the people in their crew was clear. The movie Emperor, Ji Yu and Lan Shuer were currently the cast of the drama.

For this scandal trio to gather… Wow, how exciting will the battlefield be? He really could not stop thinking about it!

The responsible person’s heart jumped as he again confirmed.


“Miss Xi, you really wanted to sign up as an extra?”


Seeing Tong Su nodded in confirmation, the person in charge was overjoyed and jotted her name on the list.  That person then asked her to stay at the side as he began to pick up other extras for the day.

Looking at Tong Su who was trying her best to restrain the excitement from gracing her whole face, Xi Chen Zhao couldn’t help but glanced at the cast crew as his eyes began to take a profound look.


She was that happy to join the crew?

Quick Transmigration, oppressive slag: Boss gege excessive spoiling Chapter 23

Chapter 23 Task 1: Brother, my fiancé derailed (22)

Author: Táng yǒu cháng’ān

T/N: Plz comment on any mistake. I will edit it ASAP.


Tong Su smiled and poked Xi Chen Zhao.

“How are you going to compensate me? Just right, I still have another house. That one was the one that Ji Yu often goes to. I want to redecorate it a bit. What do you think, gege?”


Tong Su deliberately reached out and swayed his shirt’s sleeve, asking him to indulge her. She was smiling so wide that it showed her neat white teeth.

Tong Su held the credit card given by the Xi father and Xi mother. Therefore, she naturally did not really have any shortage of money. However, since she wanted to “decorate” the house a bit, obviously she will be happier if someone willing to subsidise her.

Xi Chen Zhao’s eyes were hooded as its depth reflect the bright beam of the girl in front of him. His jaws slightly floated a smirk.


“Okay.”


Tong Su was stunned.


Did he smile just now?!


That slight smile made him become over one point brighter and less than one point cold. It engraved on his thin, sharp lips. Beautiful like an ice-carved flower.

Having a glimpse of that fleeting smile was like the blossoming of a flower. Just a split-second yet it remained eternal. So amazing that it’s engraved into the bottom of one’s heart.

Tong Su was absent-minded that she almost forgot anything in this world that Xi Chen Zhao ended up raising his hand and flicked her skull gently.


“Snap out of it.”

“Ah? Oh!”


She rocked her head and immediately took back her wandering thoughts. She then reached out to rub the top of her head.

Eh?

For what reason did she felt the feeling of burning coming from the meatball tie in her hairs…
[ T/N I am not sure if this is translated right, but I do know a keychain plush toy that will release the smell of bread when it get hot]

That man had been touching and pinching on it since before?


Tong Su started to calm down as she put her hand down.

Well, this feels even better than she imagined.

Xi Chen Zhao opened his wallet, took out a black card and directly gave it to Tong Su. Tong Su also was not polite as she placed it in her little purse and went online to place an order.

When you took a sneak peek on her phone, you could only see a few words that vaguely look like “pinhole” and the like.

Xi Chen Zhao looked serious, but he did not utter a word and just kept it in his heart.

The girl was beautiful while the man was tall and suave. When these two were walking together, the surrounding people started to whisper and squeal at the sight of this couple. Wherever they turned their head, the number of people looking at them seemed to rise.

Seeing that, Tong Su smiled and said.


Gege, you see, you are so handsome, they all are staring at you!”


Xi Chen Zhao gave a noncommittal hum as he looked around him coldly. He appeared to be slightly helpless as he continued to watch Tong Su who was still playing on her phone.


“How about you?”


Tong Su blinked her eyes before she answered


“Naturally I have been shot to foolishness earlier on, ah. With this kind of handsome brother, I no longer able to look at the average man.”


This time, Xi Chen Zhao the one who became stunned.

At that moment, the Ferris wheel in the amusement park behind them was lit up with the neon lights, adding a colourful and dazzling background to the tall and handsome figure of Xi Chen Zhao.

Tong Su looked overjoyed as she excitedly pulled out her phone and turned on the camera.


Gege looks at the camera and smile! You are so handsome. It is a shame that there is not a single photo of you on the internet!”


Xi Chen Zhao quickly returned to reality.

Seeing her so excited, he didn’t contradict her. It wasn’t that there were no reports of him on the Internet after all some people love to take a sneak shot of him. It just that whenever the images were released, they were all blocked down by him.

Since he was not from the entertainment circle, therefore, there is no need for him to have his photos spread around on the Internet.

Their management group had never relied on one’s appearances. The most important things were to be a sufficiently skills individual with a sharp and decisive mind. Therefore, these kinds of things are useless.

Furthermore, he also did not like taking pictures.


But if she was the one who took it…


He calmed down and lifted his hand to undo the button on the top of his shirt.

Tong Su suddenly squealed.


“Right! Right! This angle! This angle makes you look most handsome. Gege, put your hand on your neckline, I am going to press the shutter now!”


Xi Chen Zhao raised his hand and obediently placed it on his neckline.

His low-key follower, the driver and the assistant who had been behind them this whole time and listened to their conversation, were about to go crazy

Both of them were looking at each other.


Isn’t president hate to take pictures the most?

What’s the hell is going on, he even took the initiative to put some poses for the picture?

Did something go wrong with their eyesight?

God, bloody red rain was about to fall! The sun is about to rise from the west, ah! Help! The president is going crazy!

Quick Transmigration, oppressive slag: Boss gege excessive spoiling Chapter 22

Chapter 22 Task 1: Brother, my fiancé derailed (21)

Author: Táng yǒu cháng’ān

T/N: Plz comment on any mistake. I will edit it ASAP. I am not sure what happened with my post on 24 October. All went missing without a trace. Cannot be found anywhere even on the trash can. I have to repost it back.

Though I promised to post 7 chapters today, I too tired dealing with the missing chapters, so there will be only 4 chapters first. I will edit and post the remaining chapter tomorrow.


Tong Su noticed the hint of interest in Xi Chen Zhao eyes as he looked around the room.

Sure enough, this gege was fond of this kind of eccentric fairy looks. Moreover, he also seemed to like this kind of loveable and lively younger sister.

He made it so easy for her to play that role.

Her eyes flickered a bit.

There were two houses under the original’s name.

One of the houses was bigger than this one. The original body usually stays there and Ji Yu also often to come visit her. He also had the key to that house. However, since she had been refusing to meet Ji Yu, she had been avoided going back there for the moment.

As she was unable to go back to her own home and also unable to stay by herself in an empty mansion, she resolutely moved out and did not come back home for a month. She also decided not to take any initiative to contact this brother of hers for a month.

Now the result obtained from that move was even better than expected.

If there is an intimacy rater available now, surely her point in Xi Chen Zhao’s intimacy was soaring high.

Xi Chen Zhao withdrew his line of sight from the room’s interior and saw Tong Su squatting on the sofa. He frowned before he said.


“Sit properly”

    
Tong Su stuck out her tongue before she honestly put down her legs and properly sat on the sofa.


“Your fiancé is getting into trouble again. Do you need me to help you clean them up?”


Ji Yu?


“You mean those things on the Internet? Rest assured, gege, I know.”


Tong Su was smiling confidently.


“Wait for a little more. I will invite you to watch the show! Now, is not yet the time to pack them up.”


Seeing that she was already calculating, Xi Chen Zhao felt relieved.


“If you need me to do anything, just say it.”

“Uh-huh!”


Tong Su nodded. They continued to talk for a while when Tong Su finally realised that it was getting late by looking outside. She then invited Xi Chen Zhao to have a meal together with her.

Tong Su only invited him as formality towards her guest but she never expected that her brother will agree to it.

Tong Su was shocked. Didn’t this brother always acted indifferently when dealing with his sister? Even if her earlier move could garner goodwill points from him, she did not think it will be this high. Are the two of them are close enough to do this sort of things like having meals together?

However, this is also a good thing. If she can continue to brush their intimacy, it will be more profitable for her!

After having a meal, Tong Su’s heart was restless as she continued to pull her brother to walk around. Xi Chen Zhao did not even mention about going home. Even though his countenance remained cold but he just let Tong Su dragged him here and there.

Near the private restaurant where there had just had their meal, there was a film city. There were many ancient palaces and city buildings built in the row means for tourist attraction as well as filming set. Apart from the crowds of tourists, this place was also a famous shooting locations.

Currently, there was a film crew who had booked the entire site for shooting. Because of that, there were crowds of tourists who had surrounded this place while trying to peek inside curiously.


“Hey, what kind of filming crew is there? So confidential!”

“I don’t know, ah. If only I can go in and become an extra, but I think I saw the silhouette of a movie emperor is there, right? But I don’t know if it was my eye seeing wrongly, though.”

“Wow, the movie emperor?! What kind of crew is this, for them to be able to invite a film emperor to join? Which movie emperor I wonder?”


Tong Su heard the commotion around her as she also took a peek inside. Her lips slowly spread into a gentle smile.


Which movie emperor they wonder?

Ji Yu of course.



This crew should be from that drama that Ji Yu had been wishing to join. The new film “Chaotianzi” directed by Director Zhang.

Tong Su expression appeared to be as usual as she deliberately plead in an eager voice.


Gege, let’s go there and see? It looks very lively.”


Xi Chen Zhao who got dragged against his choice naturally going to talk about her apartment.


“You moved back.”


Tong Su tilted her head as she smiled and cleverly counterattacked.


“Will gege also live at home?”

“If you return, I will return.”

“You want to fight with me? I want to say, if gege went back to live, then I will go back!”


Her eyebrows bent as she used her finger to hold into Xi Chen Zhao’s sleeves like a sly little fox.


“Poor little apartment that I’ve worked so hard on. If we fight one day, I will move back in.”


Xi Chen Zhao took her hand that had been pulling his sleeve and held it in his hand, it filled his eyes with softness.


“Then you will have no chance to go back and live there.”

T /N: This is MTL work. I tried to edit as best as I could, any mistake plz do put your comment and I will edit it ASAP. This is my first attempt on Chinese novel so please cheer me up! I hope you will find this novel as interesting as I do.

I know I promised to update every day until the end of October, however, the author suddenly punched with a 10k chapter and consecutive 5k chapters that my motivation just… OTL… LOL… anyway I think I will be splitting those chapters… we will wait and see… on second notes, I will post 7 chapters of Boss Gege after I verified some of the paragraphs with the dictionary first.

If anyone wondering how I MTL the work, it basically

RAW–> Paste it on Google translate –> Edit the paragraph and bold the nonsensical words/paragraphs –> check that bolded nonsensical words/ paragraph with an online dictionary, Bing Translate, Google Translate –> Brush grammar with Ginger and Grammarly –> Post on WP.

Therefore, aggregator sites, please moves your butt off my work. Thank you.

BTW, I also not sure why chapter 45 went missing. There is also nothing in the trash. So I reposted it back.


That night, apart from Jiang Liu who having a sweet dream, both Hu Guirong and Meng Yun-niang unable to close their eyes until dawn. Even though their rooms separated by a wall of wood but they felt as if they still could hear the breath of the person on the other side.

Meng Yun-niang had thought a lot that night. Such as the hidden feeling that she shared with Hu Guirong before she got married; and also her clumsy yet honest husband…


She became a widow in her early twenty and she had been alone ever since. To continue that kind of life, how could she be willing. Especially, when she knew that the man in her heart is still waiting for her.

But at this time, she also thought of her husband who had died young. That man was not good with words, but he had always treated her well. He also gave her a good son. If she were to remarry, she could not help but feel sorry for him.

In Meng Yun-niang’s heart, these two sides were currently at war.

Another part persuaded her, telling her that even her son wanted her to remarry. Therefore, why should she stop herself from pursuing her own happiness?

However, another voice countered, telling her that once she remarried, it most likely that she will become a stain to her son’s reputation and that he might even deny from entering the ancestral hall.

These voices kept arguing inside Meng Yun-niang’s head. Even when morning comes, none of them manage to subdue each other.

Once the daybreak, Meng Yun-niang quickly dressed and ready to go to the kitchen to prepare breakfast. Unfortunately for her, when she opened the door and walked out from the room, Hu Guirong who stay next door also came out.

The two looked at each other and then quickly averted their eyes.

In order to go to the kitchen, Meng Yun-niang needs to pass by Hu Guirong’s side. Naturally, the walkway in the boat’s cabin was relatively narrow. Even with Hu Guirong sticking his whole body on the wall, Meng Yu Niang could barely pass without touching him.

Passing through such a narrow hallway, inevitably, their clothes will end up rubbing each other. Hu Guirong quickly raised his head and held in his breath, fearing that he will be offending his sweetheart. [T/N: Am I the only one who thought he is too sweet???!! What with this sudden dog-food from this middle-aged couple? (According to the ancient age)]

The ingredients available on board were simple. The crew caught most of them on board. Fortunately, before the departure, Meng Yun-niang already packed a lot of pickles though it was barely able to be considered as a match of meat and vegetable.

On the dining table, apart from Jiang Liu who from time to time will talk in order to ease the atmosphere, the rest of the people were keeping their silence as they eat. Of course, it was not like there were nobody else there. For example, just before the departure time, Jiang Chong had given a servant boy to Jiang Liu.

He was an orphan specifically selected by Jiang Chong from the Jiang family. His whole family was already gone. The only closest relative that he had was his married aunt.  No one was willing to raise him. In these years, he had been relying on help from the clan. Therefore, he had deep gratitude towards the clan.

Jiang Chong sent such a person to the Jiang Liu, because, one, his mother was a widow, therefore, it was inconvenient for her to go out. Jiang Yu will help them deal with the matter outside the house. Second, Jiang Chong also wanted to deepen the relationship between Jiang Liu and the clan. After being separated for a long time, inevitably, he might have forgotten about his relatives and his hometown.

Jiang Liu had no opinion regarding this additional book boy cum errand boy. Even modern people did not achieve equality for everyone, let alone in ancient times. For an orphan like Jiang Yu, the opportunity for him to follow Jiang Liu was not something that anyone else could dream off.

Jiang Liu had never looked down on the tight-knitted power of the ancient clan. Instead of looking for another trustworthy servant, it was still better to use Jiang Yu, who was born from the same clan. And after a few days of observation, Jiang Liu felt that Jiang Yu was a simple and honest child. There were still a few places worthy of training, and due to this, Jiang Liu decided to follow the wishes of the patriarch and take Jiang Yu as his own people.

It seemed that he was fortunate that he did not reject this book boy, or else he will be suffocated sitting with both his mother and Hu Guirong.

Half a month later, the group finally arrived at the capital. They did not encounter any danger on the road. It was very peaceful. Jiang Shendao had received the letter from his disciples earlier on and had already sent his people to wait at the dock.

It was the butler of the Jiang House. The other party did not take them directly to the Jiang’s residence. Instead, he took them to a house with a small courtyard.

“This is the house that the Lord had entrusted me to find. In the young master’s letter, the lord had learned that Madam Jiang and Young Master Jiang unwilling to lodge with the Jiang family. Therefore, my master already asked this old slave to find a house for madam and a young master. The owner of the house was originally Juren, but after repeated attempts on the test and failing, the seller was ready to return to his hometown to seek other jobs. Because he was in rush to return, he had sold this house cheaply. It only cost 80 taels of silver.”

The old housekeeper brought them to look around the house.

“The front yard of the house can be used to raise chickens or grow some vegetables. The two main rooms were also spacious. There were also four rooms on each wing. This house also in a good location, not far from the inner city. Later, when Young Master Jiang needs to go to our residence to attend classes, the distance will be about the time it takes for one incense sticks to burn. If you were to use a carriage, it will be even faster.” [T/N Typically 15 – 20 minutes]

Meng Yun-niang looked at this small house. Her heart was totally satisfied. Originally she thought the house’s price in the capital wouldn’t be cheap. She was afraid that once they arrived at the capital, they would not be able to buy a house directly and could only rent it for a while. Now, it seemed that it will only cost them 80 taels of silver and she will still have some money left for any emergency.

Jiang Liu was not as innocent as his mother. He guessed that his master had definitely subsidised the price of the house from its initial price. However, right now he needed a place to stay. As for the kindness he owed to others, he will return it eventually.

Meng Yun-niang happily bought this small house. With the little money left, she will definitely be able to add some furniture to the house. Meng Yun-niang’s mood was getting much cheerful as she thought of her big plan. The worries that usually marred her eyebrows were also cleared

Expressing such kindness, Jiang Liu decided that he visits his teacher’s residence to express his gratitude.

Meng Yu Niang was a widow. Therefore, it will not be good for her to visit other people’s residences arbitrarily. So the mother decided to stay at home while arranging their belonging and take notes if there is any supplement that needed to be bought immediately by taking advantage that it was still daytime. While his mother went on a shopping trip, Jiang Liu, he had decided to visit the Jiang’s residence in order to pay his respect to his teacher.

*****

“So, this is your apprentice!”

Jiang Furen was shocked when she saw Jiang Liu. She thought her husband’s disciple will be the exam candidate in their teen or maybe age twenty. After all his husband seemed to meet them when he was in charge of the recent examination. She could not imagine that it will be a seven-year-old doll. [T/N Furen – Madam]

However, this child was really cute. His skin was white and clear. His eyes not only big and round but also clear and free from impurity. His appearance was not much different from that of the little fairy boy that was often depicted to be around Guanyin Bodhisattva, which is enshrined in the Little Buddha Hall.

Jiang Furen did not know if her husband had chosen this child because of his literary talent or due to the fact that he was blinded by this child’s appearance.

“Ha ha ha, my wife, you already heard right about the 7-years-olds child prodigy from the southern part of the country who was ranked first on the metropolitan-level of examination? That rumoured child prodigy is indeed the disciple of your husband.”

Jiang Shendao was very proud. Since his apprentice is already here, he nevertheless was going to hold him in his both hand steadfastly.

When Jiang Furen heard his husband’s words, she immediately felt relieved. It seemed that her husband had not yet reached the point where he was blinded with one’s appearance.

However, as a result, the way she looked at Jiang Liu was like how she looks at a rare creature. It was actually unheard in the history of Jin dynasty that a 7 years old able to qualify himself to enter the government. Therefore, this news had spread like a fire in the capital that even the ladies who were restricted to their boudoir had also been talking about it for a while. They had thought this child prodigy must be someone who was carefully cultivated by a big family or a family of a scholar. Therefore, it was not a surprise that such a result has been achieved.

But she knew that the apprentice chosen by her husband did not come from such a family. Hence, for a farmer’s child to have such achievement, it could only be said that the child was indeed gifted.

Can such a child really be able to fulfill her husband’s dream? Won’t he end up grabbing the champion title instead?

Jiang Furen was aware of her husband’s obsession, and when she looked at Jiang Liu, she really can’t help but cover her mouth and laugh

But even if she wanted to laugh she still should not forget about the serious things. As this child’s teacher, her husband had been preparing a bunch of gifts and the most conspicuous gift was these few porcelain boxes filled with facial cream. The facial cream was developed by Jing Shendao himself. It was a good thing that cannot be bought from the outside shop.

Jiang Furen did not stay for a long time. After saying a few pleasantries, she returned to the inner house, leaving Jiang Shendao and Jiang Liu to continue their conversation at the front hall.


“These are all good things that your master has carefully selected for you. Don’t let it go to waste.”


Jiang Shendao pointed at the pile of gifts before he touched his beard.


“Yes.”

Jiang Liu quickly nodded. He didn’t expect that his teacher will be so attentive. He actually prepared this face cream for his mother. It was also his carelessness as a son that he forgot that his mother was already out of the mourning period and should start to dress up.

It had never crossed his mind at all that all those stuff was meant for him. After all, he was such a cute boy with natural beauty, did he still even need to use this kind of external things?

Seeing his disciple being so well-behaved, Jiang Shendao was very pleased.


*****

“Mother, father’s disciple was the rumoured seven-year-old’s prodigy who becomes the first ranker in the metropolitan-level of the Imperial Examination?”

In the house’s rear court, Jiang Furong, the six-year-old daughter of Jiang Shendao, was holding her mother’s hand as she asked curiously.

Because of having cooped up inside the house for a long time, Jiang Furong’s skin was fair and delicate, like a fine, white porcelain. This was also her greatest advantage. Besides that, her facial features could only be considered as upright. Even so, she could still be considered as delicate and pretty that well worth the second look.

“Exactly.”

Jiang Furen smiled as she nodded in assent while touching his daughter’s hair.

Jiang Furen’s appearance could only be regarded as delicate. Although her husband thought of his appearances as exceptional, however, the truth was, his appearance can only be attributed to those ordinary people. The child borne by two people who are not outstanding in appearance will naturally would not beautiful.

Even so, this couple also attached great importance to the cultivation of their children. Even if the child was a daughter, they must learn the things. It could be said that the fragrance of a book could be smell from their belly.
Furthermore, this youngest daughter could be considered as the most talented in the Jiang family. Although she looked ordinary, her appearance still managed to make others feel delighted.

However, the world usually favours the beauty, and Jiang Furen’s biggest concern was regarding the future marriage of this young girl. In particular, this daughter has the same appearance as his husband. Jiang Shendao thought his daughter was generally beautiful like him. Jiang Furen felt that when the times arrived for her to arrange this girl’s marriage, there might be some trouble ahead of them.

Jiang Furen did not know why she suddenly had a flash of Jiang Liu’s face.

If it is that wise and beautiful disciple of her husband, then her husband should be satisfied.


The author has something to say: These days, the fingers felt numb that I always misjudged the time for the update.

Quick Transmigration, oppressive slag: Boss gege excessive spoiling Chapter 21

Chapter 21 Task 1: Brother, my fiancé derailed (20)

T/N: Plz comment on any mistake. I will edit it ASAP.


The moment he saw her.

It was like a wolf which had lost the wild forest finally found his way home.

The heart finally settled.

Xi Chen Zhao at this moment seemed to realise why he had been feeling frantic and helpless.

Those fretful, worry, anger, confusion, anxiety and pressing feeling was like the sea tide as it slowly ebbed out and revealed the concealed feeling that started to quietly emerge. It turned out that he really wanted to see her.

She was smiling with her eyebrows bent. Half of her long hair was tied into a bun on the top of her head while half of it was freely scattered, falling in between the loose neckline of her home clothes as she lazily leans under the window, letting her face painted with the bright sunshine. As if she was surrounded by a thin layer of gold.

That smile was even brighter than the sun, but also warm.


“Gege!”


She called him out. It melted the ice and the cold that surrounded his heart.

Warm and mellow.

Very comfortable.

The anger that he had inside his heart disappeared at the instant. His eyes faintly drooped down. 


“It is me.” 


Tong Su abandoned her phone as she stood up and rushed over to him. 


Gege, how did you come in? You have been so busy for so long, are you tired right now? Have you rested yet?” 


Xi Chen Zhao had his arm wide opened as Tong Su pounced on him in a vigorous manner, her hand was hugging his waist as she swayed around.


“I let the manager bring people to open the door. How did you end up living here? Why don’t you go home?”


Xi Chen Zhao felt that the hold in his waist started to loosen up as Tong Su who had been hugging him started to untie herself from the initial hug position. He saw that she had been smiling awkwardly as if she just realised her sudden action. There is some shyness in her expression as she seemed to avoid even looking at him. With a red face, she said. 


“I will give you the keys so you do not have to bother others later.”


He didn’t know why, but when he felt that her hand started to loosen up, he actually had some… Anyway, he didn’t like that feeling.

He sighed and whispered.


“Why did you decide to move out?”


He seemed to be a little unhappy? Tong Su thought about it and laughed out loud. 


“Did gege thought that I didn’t want to live at home? You think too much!”


Tong Su dragged him to sit at the sofa. When she was about to run to get the cup of water from the kitchen, Xi Chen Zhou called her to a halt. 


“Shoes.” 


Tong Su pulled back her neck. This wooden floor is not that cool. Since it was convenient, she often overlooked the need to wear indoor slipper.

Since Xi Chen Zhou rarely comes around, she had forgotten about it only to end up being scolded by him.

She quickly wore her indoor slipper and went to the kitchen to pour a cup of water and took out the cut fruits. She put all those stuff on the table in front of them before she jumped onto the sofa with her slippers and all. She then looked at Xi Chen Zhao with a big smile on her face. 


“This house has been bought after all, so how could we let it become a waste? After all, you and my parents are not at home. For me to live alone in such a big house, it felt so lonely. This apartment is small. Even if I were to live here alone, it is also quite comfortable.” 


Xi Chen Zhao looked at her eccentric fairy-like appearance. He narrowed his eyes but continued to keep his silence. He then simply picked that cup of water and took a sip.

She tied her hair into a bun with a meatball like hair ties at one side and a crystal lollipop on the other. This kind of unkempt loose hairstyle, really drawn his eyes to it…

It seemed to be particularly good. He tried to restrain himself as he kneaded his muscle and turned his head to look at the small apartment.

The apartment was not big; it was around 87 square meters. However, the decoration was very delicate. Warm wallpaper with smooth wooden floors.

There were also a few paintings hanging on the wall. It doesn’t seem to be famous paintings bought from the auction house, but only a simple brushwork that appears to be her own handiwork.

She didn’t turn on the TV, so obviously; she didn’t look at it. On the sofa, there was her abandoned phone, tablet and a laptop. It seemed that those things should be the one that she used the most.

There was only one-bedroom which was half-covered by the door. Inside, there was a large bed that looked fluffy and soft, with a plush doll placed in the middle of the big bed.

A warm and very human house.

He can see that she was here for the peace of mind. Xi Chen Zhao pursed his lips, feeling extremely unhappy.

She looked so happy and comfortable that it seemed that even without his existence, it was not considered as important to her at all.

Quick Transmigration, oppressive slag: Boss gege excessive spoiling Chapter 20

Chapter 20 Task 1: Brother, my fiancé derailed (19)

Author: Táng yǒu cháng’ān

T/N: Plz comment on any mistake. I will edit it ASAP.

T/N: Reposted. I wonder what happened on 24 October? All my post on that day went missing.


Therefore, she was the one who responsible for letting him derailed!

If she hadn’t refused to be close to him, did not let him vent his fire, will he still need to find someone else?

The more he thought about it, the more Ji Yu felt dissatisfied with Xi Tong Su.

Ji Yu wanted to have a heart-to-heart discussion with Xi Tong Su, but she refused to go out to see him. Because of this, Ji Yu felt even more annoyed that he ended up meeting with Lan Shuer often in order to solve his need.

The indulgence that came from this affair made Ji Yu and Lan Shuer threw away all their concerns as their affair turned into a full swing.

In a blink of an eye, one month soon passed by. The interview at the dinner party that acted as the fig leaf that tell-tale a strong love only managed to give them a moment of peace before more and more rumours started to run amok. /



“According to reliable news, a well-known J surname male star has broken up with his fiancée.”

“J male star is too scary. It seemed that he did not only had a relationship with the fiancée but also having his mistress mix in together making it into a threesome!”

“There are two or three things that can’t be said about one male star and a tender model…”

“J male star overpowered the L tender model in a private room. For more, click on the link to see!”

Tong Su really clicked on the link given. Once the website was loaded, it turned out to be a video of an internet celebrity rooster fighting a little doe! [T/N: 鹿 = Lu = Dear, 公鸡 = Gong Ji – Rooster]

It was really a J male star and an L female star!

She laughed so hard that her belly, ache. After exiting the page, Tong Su opened her Weibo to like that online post. Every day, she will tweet something while she continued to eat melon seed and watched the drama passively from the side. Her day could be said to pass in great pleasure. She had a well-thought-out plan in her mind. It’s just that some people didn’t know about it.

********

Xi Chen Zhao had just finished a big project that has been in preparation for the last half a year. Therefore, it was really rare for him to have the time to rest. This time investment involved nearly one billion. With the size of the project, he needed to oversee almost everything. Thus, he had been very tired by the end of it. On the way home, it was not easy for him to turn off the alarm clock and get some sleep.

When he woke up, he heard the whispers of his driver and assistant.

“This is the young lady’s affair… However, with the current trend, maybe we should discuss with Xi-zong first?”

“If that Ji Yu really bully our young miss, he was truly good for nothing!”

Xi Chen Zhao turned cold as he interjected the conversation between the two people in front of him. The driver and the assistant did not expect that he had already woken up. 


“You actually dare to talk indiscriminately about the private matter of others, did you already forgot the rule of Zsun Group? This time, I won’t punish you on behalf of Tong Su. In the future, no matter how big or small, as long as it involved the young lady, you must report it to me immediately.”


He was so worried and angry that he couldn’t wait to go back. When he asked the housekeeper, he knew that Tong Su had moved out a few days ago and right now living in an apartment outside.

Before the rumours got even more out of control, he decided to find her new address.

*****

This was a mid-range community developed by a Zsun Group. It was a real estate subsidiary, which had a sufficiently secure security patrol and monitoring.

Obviously, he had personally emphasized on the strict arrangement of the security. But the more he looked at it, the more dissatisfied he was with it.

“This kind of place is too simple and crude and the security measure also couldn’t be compared with the one at our main residence. Anyone can actually enter this community. If that person has a bad heart, it will not be difficult for them to forge a security card. How could she leave the family home and came here instead?” 

He did not want to alarm Tong Su, so he decided to call the manager to directly open her apartment building. While other people were waiting outside, he personally opened the door.

When he just opened the door, he suddenly heard a burst of laughter coming from inside. As he walked further in, he saw that she was holding a smartphone and was rolling on the carpet. She laughed so much as she rolled around on her stomach. 


“How can this Netizen hahaha be so talented?” 


Tong Su was holding her stomach and couldn’t stop laughing. Suddenly, the phone in her hand was taken away.

She shouted in shock and looked up, and as soon as she saw his eyes, her expression turned rejoice as she gave him a big smile. 


“Gege! You are back!”
