On the eighteenth of the fourth month, the rays of spring were radiant and beautiful. I was already dragged out from my quilt early in the morning and Madam Xie personally supervised the process of freshening up and dressing up.

I was again forced to wear a piece of peach red formal dress. After that, I sat down and had Madam Xie personally trim my eyebrows.

Grasping the tweezers, she pressed close to my eyebrows and then she suddenly pulled fiercely. I let out a blood-curdling shriek that shook heaven and earth.

Xie Zhaoying knocked the door from outside. “What’s wrong? What’s wrong?”

Just like that, Miss Zhao messed up the matter of us setting out to volunteer treating the citizens. I was afraid that hear about the matter while Song Zijing was also afraid of falling into the Miss Zhao’s devil talons. For the time being, the two of us resumed the regular and dull teaching and learning life.

On an afternoon with the brilliant radiance of spring, I was diligently studying medical skills while Song Zijing was playing chess by himself.

Outside, there were birds on the tree singing and flowers blooming at the tip of a branch. The weather had turned warm and we had changed into relatively thinner clothes. Among the warm breeze and flower fragrance, I suddenly remembered about Zhang Ziyue.

Who knew that when Ji Ying heard it, he laughed and relaxed his eyebrows as he said, “Brother Pan has misunderstood Ying’s meaning.”

“Eh?”

Ji Ying took out a small box from within his sleeves and passed it over. “Life is fleeting and full of hardships and time is more precious than money. Brother Pan, you have already been gazing in front of the teahouse for three years, but how many more three years can you afford to waste? You should seek to be a blissfully married couple. Don’t miss your good fate of an opportune match for marriage. Go on.” As he said, he pushed Pan Fang and Pan Fang stumbled as he crossed the doorstep. He had finally managed to stabilize himself when he instead saw that the people in the teahouse were all turning their heads in his direction. There was a strange silence that hung in the air.

There was originally a bazaar today. The main streets were bustling with activity with the sale of merchandise, sideshows and those who brought their children strolling around the streets. As a result, the roads were so congested that not even a drop of water could trickle through.

At this moment, people with a short and small build were at a great advantage.

I unleashed the great art of ‘Whitefish Flitting Pass the Gaps’ that has been passed down by our Xie family ancestors. I ran like the wind as if my feet were hovering above the ground, squeezed into every gap I see in the crowd and slipped far away at once.

When the Zhao Family soldiers saw that they could not catch up to me, they were furious until they hollered, “Stop right there! Stop right there!”

Furthermore, that woman’s voice was excellent and rich with feelings as she narrated. She gave such a vivid description as if it had come to life. The effects of the tense atmosphere and suspense she had constructed were of top quality, causing people’s small hearts to thump continuously as they listened. When they had finished listening to the section about “Shooting Little King Kang*”, Zhao Luan pulled her along as she walked out of the teahouse. She smiled and said, “How was it?”

*T/n: It should be adapted from an actual tale called “Shooting Little King Liang”. It is one of the many stories in the series of “Legend of Yue Fei”. Basically, King Liang was shot by Yue Fei and died at the end.

On this day, when Jiang Chenyu had woken up in the morning and was dressing up, her personal maid, Wo Yu(Wò Yú) came in happily and smilingly said, “Congrats Miss! Congratulations Miss!”

Huai Jin(Huái Jǐn) who was helping to comb her hair spat, “What gargantuan happy occasion is it for you to be making such a ruckus early in the morning?

One day, Yun Xiang ran over to tell me, “Miss, those townsmen outside the city were calling you as the ‘Beautiful and Compassionate’ Young Lady Min.”

I burst into laughter. “What?”

Yun Xiang was exultant. “They’re all treating you as an immortal. What’s left is only setting up a temple for you.”

However, Ji Ying’s gaze did not linger on her face and it was quickly swept away as he left in a haste.

The quiet night breeze stirred at his long gown. Under the palace lanterns, his shadow was elongated until it formed a long path. It was exceptionally calm and mysterious and it became dimmer as time elapsed.

Jiang Chenyu stared at his back figure dumbly until Jiang Huayue pushed her with much strength. She teased, “You’re still looking? You can’t even see his shadow anymore.”

Xie Zhaoying was familiar with the way and as much as possible, he brought me to walk on those desolated small pathways that I couldn’t even notice during the day. Roughly ten minutes later, he brought me to the bottom of a building.

I raised my head and gazed at it. “Second Elder Brother, why do I feel that this looks familiar?”

Xie Zhaoying said, “Of course you should feel that this place is familiar, this is our family’s library.”

“But you said that we came to get money……”

“Hush!” He covered my mouth. “Just follow me.”

The Emperor turned around and smiled. “You may get up.”

The bright lantern lights shone on his face. Nation Bi’s current ruler of the country, Zhao Yin, was an extremely handsome young man. His curved eyebrows always carried a faint smile. However, Empress Xue was very clear in her heart that his pleasant countenance was only a facade. This young monarch with the surname “Li” was notorious for being ruthless and merciless.

After eating and taking a bath, Yun Xiang and I sat beside a furnace to warm ourselves while I told her stories to kill time.

Today, I happened to talk about Yang Xiao hooking up with Ji Xiaofu*. One was a pure beautiful swordswoman while one was a circumspect and astute partisan of heresy and one was a pretty young girl at the prime of her youth while one was a middle-aged uncle who had experienced many vicissitudes of life.

*T/n: Two characters from the novel “The Heaven Sword and Dragon Saber”, a wuxia novel written by Jin Yong and is the third instalment in the Condor Trilogy.

It just so happened that there was that matter of an imperial edict falling into the water which really allowed her to grab the strongest opportunity.  

Looking at the Empress again, her complexion was even more ashen pale. Finally, she smiled mournfully and also went down on her knees to kneel. The surrounding court ladies all cried out in alarm one by one while Zhao Luan promptly extended her hand to support her. She asked anxiously, “Imperial Elder Sister-in-law, what are you doing?”

Empress Xue kept her eyes on Xihe and said in a heavy voice, “It is actually this concubine’s failure in upbring that resulted in my little nephew to be obstreperous and offend the imperial edict. If Your Majesty wishes to sentence a punishment, please punish this concubine. Xiao Cai* is still young and……” At this junction, her voice was already nearly choked with sobs and she could not even continue to say the word “ignorant”.

*T/n: Referring to Xue Cai.
