Your Highness, I know my wrongs. -Chapter 44.

To my dear readers,

I’m so sorry. I have been so demotivated lately. I was having a semi mental breakdown and it has been very tough for me to keep going. I spoke to Amery and he was like, “Grace. You can do it. Just translate one line at a time.” I know it sounds ridiculous, but I wanted to cry when he said that.

Anyhow, the word I am teaching today is 我. 我 means I. In Chinese, “I, me, myself” is all the same. We use 我. Since this word is a bit more complicated, I’m only teaching one word today. Write it 5 times! 我 我 我 我 我. If you want to type it, download a Chinese pinyin keyboard and type in “wo”.

As for 女人 (woman), type in “nv ren”. It’s supposed to be nu with two dots at the top, but you will be able to get the same word with nv. 男人 (man) is “nan ren”. Try it!!

Chapter 44

After Lin Shan’s parents left, Lin Shan worked very hard to recuperate for three days straight. She had to be prepared to deal with Du Hao at any moment. From morning until night, she would think of many combat plans. After all, she had to be prepared in case Du Hao unleashed a sudden attack!

Oddly enough, Du Hao seemed to have vanished. There was totally no movement from his side. Instead, there was another person driving Lin Shan nuts; that person was the clueless Du Ming Yue.

Du Ming Yue’s love life experience was truly a tragedy.

Before she was three years old, her goal was to marry her father one day. However, she later found out that the Emperor wasn’t someone she could marry. Therefore, she decided to fall for her eldest brother, Du Ye.

She relied on Du Ye for everything; and whenever she got in trouble, he would back her up. This crush lasted until she was twelve. One day, her mother ruthlessly told her that she could never marry her brother.

Poor Du Ming Yue was broken hearted. Hence, she turned to the servant that served Du Ye. That relationship only lasted for three months. The servant had a mental breakdown and personally transferred to another department to become an eunuch.

Afterwards, Du Ming Yue found out eunuchs were not marriageable either. This was a severe blow to her, and she decided to stop falling in love.

But the year she turned sixteen, Du Ming Yue met Song Lin Feng, the eldest master from the Song family, and fell in love. Finally, she had met a suitable/normal match! Being the bashful teenager she was, it took her awhile to summon up the courage to confess. In the end, she gave her father a note, indicating her love interest.

Yet, she was one step too late. Song Lin Feng had married Yang Bi Yuan, and she somehow ended up with the second brother, Song Luo.

Instead of getting her ideal handsome manly man, she was now left with a feminine weakling. Du Ming Yue threw a fit and prepared a rope to commit suicide, but the Emperor’s words were final.

The marriage was going to happen, and she had no choice.

The moment they got married, Du Ming Yue had total confidence that she would be able to scare Song Luo away. Yet, despite looking like a frail little twerp, Song Luo wasn’t intimidated by her the slightest bit.

As a matter of fact, she was the one who always ended up in a disadvantage position. Du Ming Yue had never met a match like this. She was frustrated and embarrassed. Slowly, she developed feelings for Song Luo.

Honestly, Song Luo wasn’t that bad. When he tried to save her from falling onto the broken vase, that was quite a manly move. Plus, he had saved her brother, the Crown Prince.

When Song Luo went missing, she was actually worried…. just like that Du Ming Yue’s love life had taken another step towards tragedy.

If Du Ming Yue found out she fell in love with a woman, she would probably crash her head against a tree and commit suicide. However, currently, she was still clueless.

Her teenage heart was stirring and she started to appear around Lin Shan all the time.

“Song Luo, why are you not drinking your medicine?”

“Song Luo, if you don’t drink your medicine, I will personally send your maid to the Leaning Vermilion House!”

“Song Luo, you do not have the permission to flirt with your maid!”

“Song Luo, I want to go to the park. You’re coming with me!”

“Song Luo, my back feels sore. Give me a massage.”

……

“Song Luo, tonight, I’m sleeping with you!”

The wind howled. The horses hissed. And Lin Shan crumbled.

“Master, where are you running off to?” Xiao Lu asked as Lin Shan dragged her to hide with her.

It doesn’t matter where we go. Anywhere is better than sleeping with Du Ming Yue, ok? Who knows what she’s going to do in the middle of the night. What if she becomes a beast and starts tearing off my clothes?

Lin Shan didn’t say a word, but she rolled her eyes at Xiao Lu.

“Master, they say that those who kill pigs will reincarnate as a pig in the next life. You must have committed a lot of crimes in your previous life. That’s why in this life, so many people want to commit crimes to you.”

Lin Shan nearly tripped on the bulging flagstone. She stared at Xiao Lu with resentment. You’re from the future, aren’t you?

At that moment, Xiao Luo suddenly exclaimed: “Ai ya! Master, it looks like it’s going to rain!”

Immediately after, the sky flashed…followed by the explosive sound of thunder. Huge droplets of rain started pounding down on them.

Do you have a mouth of a crow? Lin Shan wanted to give Xiao Lu a dirty look but realized she had disappeared. She looked to her left and right and found Xiao Lu shaking at the corner of the garden.

Oh yeah! Xiao Lu was afraid of lightning. Lin Shan decided to go over to comfort her.

At that moment, another blast of lightning flashed through the sky and the thunder echoed through the air.

Xiao Luo couldn’t handle it anymore and screamed, “Ah!”. She fled from the scene like a crazy woman.

Lin Shan was stunned. She rushed to follow, but since her ankle was still injured, she had to stop after a couple of steps. By the time she looked up, there was no trace of Xiao Lu.

Are you kidding me? I have to stay out by myself tonight? Lin Shan started feeling sorry for herself. The rain was falling harder. I guess the best thing was to find a place to avoid the rain.

In order to hide from Du Ming Yue, Lin Shan basically ran to wherever that was remote. Now that she chased Xiao Lu for a bit, she was totally lost. The sky was dark, and there wasn’t a single person in sight. She was surrounded by plants, and they all looked the same.

Fortunately, it looked like there was a ge lou* nearby. Since this was such a remote area, there were probably nobody living there. Lin Shan didn’t hesitate  and ran straight towards the ge lou.

ge lou

This is a ge lou. I don’t know how to translate it accurately.

It was indeed an empty building. There wasn’t a single guard around. Looks like she was going to stay here for the night.

Lin Shan took off her soaked outer garment and headed towards the stairs. However, after a couple of steps, she paused. Wait a minute… a rainy night, a ge lou, and a weak woman that is alone… isn’t this a scene from a horror movie? Oh my goodness…

A gust of wind blew and it caused a chilling sensation on Lin Shan’s soaked back. Her hair stood on ends and she had a very bad feeling something was going to happen…

Then, from the faint lighting, Lin Shan noticed a shadow that was slowly approaching her. It stopped right behind her.

Outside the building were sounds of heavy rain and violent wind. The sky was trembling with sounds of thunder, and the shadow had silently stopped right behind her. All Lin Shan could sense was danger.

Lin Shan was frozen stiff, but her heart was beating so fast that she felt like it was going to pop out at any moment. Her breathing was heavy.

She knew she was doomed. She couldn’t speak due to the smoke that had gotten in her throat. She couldn’t run either, due her to injured ankle. If she was going to die regardless, she might as well turn around and take a look at the demon.

Lin Shan gritted her teeth and turned around like a boss. However, she turned around so dramatically that she crashed straight into the “demon”. At this moment, her eyes saw stars and she was very dizzy.

Oh wow! I never knew demons are so firm! Ouch. And holy moly, this demon looks so much like Du Hao. Hmm… I guess that’s a good fit. Wait a minute!! How come he looks so much like Du Hao? Ah!!!

She finally figured it out. F***. I thought I would see a demon, but it’s actually worse than a demon!

Lin Shan subconsciously took a step back. She was about to run, but Du Hao had already reached out and grabbed onto her wrist. He grimly questioned: “Why are you here?” But his voice was quickly drowned by the sounds of thunder.

Lin Shan was so scared that she couldn’t utter a sound. All she did was looked at him with an alarmed expression. Droplets of water dripped from her wet hair onto her soaked clothes. When the wind blew, she couldn’t stop shivering.

Du Hao crinkled his brows. He was about to speak when suddenly Lin Shan sneezed violently on him without giving any warning. He only heard “Ahh choo!”. Du Hao became as stiff as a rock. The corner of his mouth twitched.

Lin Shan felt bad and tried to wipe his face using her sleeves. Yet, the moment she advanced forward, her nose tingled again and, “Ahh choo!” It was another sneeze. This time, it was even more explosive. Now, her drool was on Du Hao’s face as well.

Du Hao’s face turned as dark as the sky. Lin Shan could barely see his face from the faint lighting now. She was panicking and decided to lightly laugh to warm the atmosphere. But her nose was truly not helping. The moment she opened her mouth, it led to another three or four sneezes.

Somehow, they all landed on Du Hao.

Now, Du Hao’s mouth couldn’t even twitch anymore.

Lin Shan was freaking out. Ahhh! It’s over! It’s over! The Crown Prince is angry! It’s not like I can control my sneezes. If you don’t want it to land on you, then let go of my wrist…

“Ahhhhh choo! Ahh choo!!!”

Finally, after sneezing more than ten sneezes in a row, Du Hao released her hand and turned to walk up the stairs.

“Follow me.” He icily ordered. His voice sounded like he was about to kill someone.

Should I follow? Lin Shan hesitated. The wind and rain roared louder and when it made contact with her soaked clothes, her bones could feel the chill.

Whatever! It’s better to be slaughtered by the Crown Prince than to freeze to death. If I become a demon, I could always get revenge later on!

With that thought, Lin Shan bravely followed Du Hao.

  9. Walo says:

    Thank you for the chapter!

    I’m sorry that the translations are taking their toll on you…I don’t think anyone would blame you if you decided to break up and release the chapters in parts. For instance, this chapter probably could have been broken into 3 parts; You could have translated one part, release and take a break, translate another part, release and take a break, then translate the last part.

    Or set a release schedule. These chapters are SUPER LONG. Honestly, I’m surprised that you release chapters every couple days. With these chapters being as long as they are, I would expect 1 chapter a week. So maybe just ease up a bit to take the pressure off.

    Or maybe you can recruit some help! I wish I knew the language so that I could help you…but others might be able to help! You don’t have to do it alone, and it would reduce some of the work/stress if you advertise that you’re looking for some people to help you translate.

    Or let another translation group take over the project for you. YOU are more valuable than a few words on a page, so if translating is becoming too much for you, just stop and let others take over. Readers are already grateful for all the work and effort you’ve put in so far!

    You’re AMAZING! Just do whatever you want! Take a breath! Relax! I love you! ^_^

    • gchan7127 says:

      Thank you, Walo! I will be ok. I guess I am in a rush to finish because I don’t want to take so long. At the same time, I get stressed and burnt out. :'(. I will be fine though. I might just slow down a bit.

      Actually, the original raws have 69 chapters. I have split the chapters up into 82. Haha, somehow, they still feel so long.

      If it’s too much, I might split it up even more. 😁. Thanks for your care!

      • Julie says:

  15. Coolkat says:

    Thanks for the chapter!! Nd I was wishing that it was out MAin lead Liam feng 😣

  16. Moua Xiong says:

    Lin shan! Please don’t care. U can eat his tofu without losing anything. Make him strip, feast on the look of Du Hao!! It’s alright, it is just a look. Hahahahaha!! I wish I have an idea to motivate u. Maybe in stead of breaking the chapter and releasing multiple times a week, u can try to translate an entire chapter and release once a week or once every other week. That will give u time, maybe?

    • gchan7127 says:

      Lol thank you for all your support and comments, Moua Xiong. I will take it easy. I don’t want to only release once a week because it will take me forever to finish. I will take a break though.

      Thanks for being such a loyal reader. 💓
