To my dear readers,
I’m so sorry. I have been so so so busy lately. I actually haven’t had time to translate at all. However, I know it has been forever so I’m going to make sure you guys see Lian Feng later on the week! There has been a lot of Du Hao lately and I know most of you want to see our male lead. 😛
Anyhow, I would like to give a shoutout to FallenSoul. Fallen is a newbie translator at Etvolare’s site. Check out Fallen’s work! He has been quite discouraged lately due to low readership and ratings. Please go and show him some support! Fallen, you better be reading this!
Lastly, the word I am teaching today is: 的 after a word gives possession. So for example, 我的 means “my” 你的 means “yours.” 他的 means “his” 她的 means “her”. 的 的 的 的 的. You can type it by typing “de” in a pinyin keyboard.
Just as Lin Shan and Yang Yu Er both fell into the waters, at the Crown Prince’s residence, Du Hao was having a serious chat with Gu Zuo.
“Your subordinate has discovered that the slip of paper is a from a special type of paper that is only produced from the Palace. Therefore, most likely, it was sent from someone here.” Gu Zuo stated.
It was someone from the Palace? Du Hao narrowed his eyes: “What about the flying dagger?”
“The flying dagger is an ordinary item. It is not created from the Palace. However, if a person can thrust such an ordinary item straight into the tree, he must have very strong abilities. I’m afraid he is not an ordinary person.”
Ordinary person? If he was an ordinary person, he wouldn’t dare to be so unbridled in front of my eyes. Du Hao coolly laughed.
At this moment, he suddenly heard someone screaming from faraway.
“Let’s go take a look.” Du Hao said to Gu Zuo. The two of them left the Study one after another, and followed the sounds of the screaming towards the back garden.
It was currently the peak of the midsummer. The lotus pond from the back garden was filled with large pieces of lotus leaves. By the time Du Hao and Gu Zuo arrived, the lotus pond had already been surrounded by quite a number of servant girls. All of them rushed to one side the moment they saw Du Hao; their faces showed signs of fear.
Du Hao looked at the lotus pond and saw Yang Yu Er fluttering like a duck. He couldn’t help but crinkled his brows. Then, he looked at Gu Zuo: “You, go in.”
Poor Gu Zuo was stunned: “Your Highness, I… I do not know how to swim….”
“Are you implying that I should go in instead?” Du Hao narrowed his eyes.
Gu Zuo hesitated: “Umm.. your subordinate shall order someone…..” Gu Zuo turned around and was about to leave.
At this moment, suddenly another weak voice could be heard amongst Yang Yu Er’s sharp screaming: “Help… help……”
Song Luo?! Du Hao immediately panicked and scanned around the lotus pond. He looked pass the layers of lotus leaves and Yang Yu Er’s extreme splashes. Finally, he noticed a familiar sleeve. Without thinking, Du Hao jumped straight into the lotus pond.
A *plop* could be heard. Gu Zuo instantly turned around and no longer saw Du Hao. He froze.
Then, he hollered: “What are you all standing around for? Quickly find someone to save our Highness! Our Highness cannot swim!”
Actually, Lin Shan can swim. However, the moment she fell into the lotus pond, Yang Yu Er went nuts and grabbed onto her clothes screaming. Thus, she couldn’t even swim to shore. She was being sunk.
At this moment, Du Hao jumped in.
The moment Du Hao jumped in, Yang Yu Er became emotional and released Lin Shan’s hand. She flopped her way towards Du Hao.
Since Yang Yu Er released her, Lin Shan felt much lighter. Although she did swallow a couple gulps of water and was slightly dizzy, she could still move her hands and legs. Therefore, she used her intuition and swam to shore.
But at this moment, there was screaming from the shore: “Quickly find someone! The Crown Prince has fallen into the lotus pond! We need someone to save him…!!!”
Why did the Crown Prince join us? He wanted to join in the fun or something? Before Lin Shan could fully comprehend what was happening, someone strongly wrapped his arms around her waist. Lin Shan turned around and realized it was Du Hao.
Du Hao’s lips were tightly shut and his face was deathly pale. He kept trying to push her above the water, but he himself was gradually sinking lower and lower.
Lin Shan knew something was wrong and quickly grabbed onto Du Hao. Fortunately, he wasn’t as difficult as Yang Yu Er. Lin Shan managed to get both of them afloat for a little while. However, since she was weak herself, she couldn’t hold on for much longer.
Just when she had no more strength, Gu Zuo found a bamboo pole from the shore.
“Prince Consort. Please grab onto the bamboo pole!” Gu Zuo yelled.
Lin Shan reached out her hand to pull. The two of them slowly got onto shore. By now, Lin Shan basically had no more strength left. She had to be dragged by Gu Zuo and the Imperial guards behind him. After she spat out a couple mouthfuls of water, she took a couple deep breaths as she looked up from the ground.
As she gasped for air, she was also feeling for the two sacks. She was beaming: Good! Good! They’re still there!!
While she was secretly celebrating, she heard Gu Zuo’s worrisome voice: “Quickly! Find the Imperial physician! Hurry!”
Lin Shan sat up and realized Du Hao was still unconscious. Gu Zuo was about to lift him.
Lin Shan rushed to stop him. You can’t lift him up when the water is still in his stomach! Come on! Use your brain?
Gu Zuo was clueless by Lin Shan’s gesture because he had no swimming knowledge or abilities.
Since Gu Zuo looked lost, Lin Shan lifted her sleeves and started pressing on Du Hao’s chest with both her hands. Once, twice, thrice…. Du Hao’s breathing still didn’t resume.
Are you kidding me? Do I have to give him artificial respiration? Lin Shan frowned. Du Hao’s face still had no colour to it. Uggghhhh. She gritted her teeth and was about to go all out. However, just as her lips were about to touch Du Hao’s, Lian Feng suddenly appeared in her mind. Although he quickly vanished, it was enough to make Lin Shan stop.
Two seconds later, Lin Shan straighten up and ruthlessly punched Du Hao in the stomach.
You f**ker! Wake up!
There was a moaning sound and Gu Zuo was freaking out from the side. He wanted to stop Lin Shan, but suddenly, there was an reaction from Du Hao.
Du Hao spat out a mouthful of water, and his breathing became normal. His eyelids also started to flutter.
“He’s awake! The Crown Prince is okay!!” Everyone was exclaiming from the side. Many people were praising Lin Shan from the side:
“The Prince Consort has saved the Crown Prince once again!”
“The Prince Consort is truly amazing!”
“The Prince Consort is a young hero!”
But out of nowhere, someone suddenly remembered and screamed: “Oh no! Yang beauty is still in the water!”
Everyone actually forgot that they were missing a person. When they looked towards the lotus pond, they saw Yang Yu Er on the shore. Her hair was a mess and she was damp and alone. The wind blew and two dead leaves spun in the air. It gave off a very mournful feeling.
Pshhh, beauty my ass! She looked pretty damn bad right now!
How could someone like her be the ultimate Imperial concubine?
Yang Yu Er’s vixen image was thoroughly ruined.
Once again, the news that Lin Shan had rescued the Crown Prince had spread throughout the entire Palace. All the servant girls voluntarily helped her washed her clothes, and there were also many who daydreamed about their hero from the window side. Even the two Imperial bodyguards with no facial expression greeted Lin Shan with respect.
In short, Lin Shan felt invincible.
However, Lin Shan honestly didn’t care much for praise. The moment she changed into her new garments, she found an excuse to stay in the room so she could look at what Yang Yu Er had given her.
Wow! I knew the vixen would be generous, but I didn’t think she would be this generous!! The two sacks were filled with golden sticks! There was a total of ten of them. It was enough to buy a house in the Capital, two acres of land, and raise a young and attractive man.
Lin Shan felt like she was floating. Suddenly, being stuck in the Crown Prince’s residence didn’t seem so bad.
Lin Shan kept recounting the ten golden sticks as she imagined buying her new home and leisurely living with an attractive young man.
She was still daydreaming when Gu Zuo’s voice appeared from the doorway: “Prince Consort. Our Highness wants you to attend a meal with him.”
Lin Shan quickly hid the golden sticks as she opened the door.
The Sun had already set. Gu Zuo stood by the entrance as he looked at Lin Shan with renowned respect.
The Crown Prince is okay? Lin Shan asked using her questioning glance.
Gu Zuo understood and nodded: “There is no need to worry, Prince Consort. The Imperial physician had already taken a look at our Highness. He is fine.”
The fact he is fine is more worrisome, okay? Lin Shan cringed from the inside.
Lin Shan followed Gu Zuo to a quiet and secluded building. There was an old servant waiting for their arrival. Gu Zuo turned around respectfully and said: “Our Highness is waiting for you upstairs. Please head up, Prince Consort.”
