Give A Kiss To Paranoid Men [Quick Transmigration] - 41.6
Thanks for your support!
Should I change Fengyue Tower to Fengyue Brothel or Fengyue Building? Or should I keep it the same?
Also, entering the palace, backyard, back mansion, and etc. are synonymous for harem, so I wonder if I should make that clearer?
As a result of it being too quiet, Ji Ting became increasingly sleepy as she copied. Gradually, she began to sway, and after her head almost hit the table again, she felt something cold on her face when she poked it. She jumped a little, then opened her eyes in a daze. Rubbing the cold part of her face, she asked, “What, what?”
After she asked that, she saw that her hands were black and she instantly knew that she had smeared ink onto her face. She hurriedly reached up to wipe it, but the more she rubbed at it, the dirtier it got. Quickly, her face was painted black.
“Your Highness.” Mu Yuzhi gave her a helpless look and took out a handkerchief. Wetting it with water, he then walked up to her to help wipe her face.
Ji Ting hurriedly leaned back and looked at him with a face full of surprise.
“What’s wrong?” Mu Yuzhi asked.
Ji Ting only then remembered that he was the eldest princess’ person. Strictly speaking, they were husband and wife. She coughed and took the handkerchief from him. While wiping her face, she explained, “I will do it myself. Don’t want to get you dirty. “
“It’s getting late. Your Highness should be hungry.” Mu Yuzhi watched her wipe her face clean.
Ji Ting pouted, “I’ve been hungry for a while now. Hungry and sleepy. But I haven’t even finished copying one volume yet.”
“Have a meal and take a nap first, then copy it afterwards?” Mu Yuzhi asked good temperedly.
Ji Ting was thinking ‘couldn’t you just let me not copy?’. Of course, she could only lament about it in her head. After knowing that she was the one being raised, she didn’t dare to do anything in front of him.
Just kidding. She will have to pay for Shen Tuchuan using his money in the future.
Although she was not exempted from the punishment, at least Ji Ting was finally able to eat. Mu Yuzhi rarely had meals with her. After the two sat down, Ji Ting looked around, “Where is Fu Yun?”
“He ate quite a few things when he heard the servants say that we were in the study. He’s probably digesting somewhere right now,” Mu Yuzhi gently said.
Ji Ting nodded, “That kid is too mischievous. Whatever, let’s eat.”
“Okay.” Mu Yuzhi gave her a piece of beef.
As the two people were eating in harmony, Fu Yun was in a small and remote courtyard, howling and pulling a mill. The donkey that was originally supposed to be pulling the mill was leisurely eating grass in the stable. Beside him were the dozen big men who were behind Mu Yuzhi at the gates.
“Your Highness, save me,” Fu Yun’s eyes were teary and the luxurious clothes on his body were wrinkled. The normally proper young master currently looked very pitiful.
“Master Fuyun should hurry up. If you can’t finish grinding this bag of corn, Master Mu won’t allow you to eat.” A brawny man carrying a stick kindly reminded him. He was obviously used to this type of scene.
Fu Yun glanced at the extra-large bag of corn next to him and tremblingly asked, “What about her Highness? Did Brother Mu also punish her?”
“I don’t know about this, though I just saw them dining together.” The strong man answered seriously.
“……” So I was the only one who was injured? Fu Yun’s eyes were teary, but he continued to grind. After all, so many people were staring at him. It was impossible for him to leave the yard before he finished his work, let alone seek help from her Highness.
Ji Ting felt that this day was extremely difficult. It was already late at night by the time she finished copying the scriptures. She dragged her two weak arms to the bedroom. As soon as she entered the yard, she saw someone had opened her door, but she still went straight in.
The corners of her mouth twitched and she speechlessly went over, “Fu Yun, didn’t I tell you to knock on the door in the future?”
“Don’t want to knock. It hurts.” Fu Yun lit the lamp and looked back at her with tears, holding up two small paws to show her.
Ji Ting was shocked when she saw a few blood blisters on his hands, “What happened?”
Fu Yun immediately wailed and told her about the punishment. Ji Ting also told him about her punishment. She looked at Fu Yun with tears in her eyes, and after a while Ji Ting asked sincerely, “Do we really have no way to deal with him?”
“Does your Highness know how much the cloud woven moon dress you’re wearing right now is worth?”
“Four thousand taels.”
“……” That was even more than her annual salary.
Fu Yun sniffled. “And you have dozens of such clothes. You throw them away after you wear them once. And the hairpins on your head. Each of them is worth a fortune. Many of them are made specially and delivered from thousands of miles away. Even in the palace*……”
“Okay, you don’t need to say anymore. I will never go against Mu Yuzhi in my life,” Ji Ting was serious.
Fu Yun looked at her, gratified, “As long as your Highness understands..”
“I’ll give you medicine.” Ji Ting sat down and began to apply medicine on him.
Fu Yun sat down as well and watched her apply the medicine. Ji Ting helped him bandage his hands while wondering, “I haven’t been to Mu Yuzhi’s room for so long. Wouldn’t it be really inappropriate?”
There was too little written in the original novel about the identity of the eldest princess, but there were many intimate, delicate relationships around this identity that she couldn’t get rid of. She could only ask carefully like an ordinary transmigrator.
“Why does your Highness want to go to Brother Mu’s room?” Fu Yun looked puzzled.
Ji Ting choked, “Then he comes to me?”
“Why would he come to you for no reason? He doesn’t like playing with us.” Fu Yun was even more puzzled.
Ji Ting’s mouth twitched. Listening to what he said, it seemed that the relationship between her and Mu Yuzhi was not what she thought.
She thought that the princess’s plot line was quite interesting, so she decided to look into it more. The next day, she called her most trusted maid to check. As a result, before she was able to find out clearly, she was distracted by other things.
Chu Yan came back with two letters.
“This one is for you. This one is for Shen Tuchuan. Your Highness, open all of them.” Chu Yan held the knife in a very cool way while unconsciously saying that wasn’t cool**.
Ji Ting squinted at him, opened her own letter, and read it while saying awe-inspiringly, “Don’t you know that you shouldn’t touch other people’s letters? It’s a moral issue.”
“Mu Yuzhi has a way to restore the letter, Shen Tuchuan will not be able to tell.”
After hearing this, Ji Ting paused, then looked at him solemnly, “Open it. Open them all.”
Half an hour later, after reading the letter, Ji Ting smiled. “Chu Yan, Fu Yun, follow this princess to Fengyue Tower. This princess is going to pick up Master Shentu to enter the mansion***.”
*Implies that even the people in the palace doesn’t have such treatment
**Implies that what he said wasn’t ethical but he doesn’t realize it
***The direct translations would mean enter the mansion, but the implied meaning is that he’s entering the harem.
