Chapter 26: Provocation

By | November 22, 2016

Sorry for the Delay. We will soon come in routine one chapter per day. This chapter is translated by another translator.

Ye Yichen’s face is livid. Simultaneously, Murong Xue knew these assassins were sent by him. As she could not get any useful information from the slain, She kills these assassins in front of Ye Yichen, what  a provocative and demonstrative move by her.

Ye Yichen has been leading troops to war for so many years, but it is the first time he met someone who dares to provoke him; She is really audacious and extremely hateful!

‘Let’s go, brother!’ Murong Xue gently wipes her bloodstained hairpin tip with a silk handkerchief, and she turns over slowly.


‘Prince Jing is a busy person and he has to deal with lots of stuff daily. Let’s try not to interrupt him and we shall go!’Murong Xue interrupts the words coming out from Murong Ye with smiling, she holds his arm, and drag him out from the house.

Ye Yichen looking gloomy horrible and staring at Murong Xue slim figure, who walking away without any nostalgia. He suddenly waved and sweeps all of the stationary from the table to the ground. The blood on ground soaks through the white calligraphy paper, the flirtatious red of the blood is stinging and eye-catching.

He keeps his eye on Murong Xue, watching her figure gradually disappear from him. At that moment, he has a strange feeling and he wants to get angry: How come she just walks away like this? Completely disregard of his on going seizures of cold poison. She is not afraid of the dreadful pain…………..

Xu Tianyou comes forward, watching MurongXue with stagger yet physically straight figure, walking with messy but orderly pace, and saying: ‘Prince, are we forcing them too tight?’

‘What do you mean?’

‘Murong Xue and Murong Ye are both 14 years old. They are still young yet they have been through tremendous tragedies. Hence, they are like frightened birds, always tends to protect themselves from others. If we keep using persecution method, I afraid such, we will naturally arouse their fierce!’

Xu Tianyou has never been caught in cold poison. But he heard of that cold poison is vindictive and incurables. It can only be suppressed by eating fire lotus seeds, or else the person who caught in cold poison will be tortured to death by pain.

‘I suggest we can try approaching them with kindness, let them know Prince you are unharmed to them.’

Ye Yichen has his own plan, he has a reason why he wants to marry MurongXue, but definitely not to their life.

Now Murong Ye is still young and he is not capable. He can’t compete with Du (the dowager). No longer than years, Du will definitely take over  the town of Hou, and when that time arrived, Murong Ye cannot guarantee he could stay alive!’

What if MurongXue agrees to marry Ye Yichen as his second wife; Murong Ye will be Ye Yichen brother in law. He can protect him from any danger and he can live wealthy. meanwhile, Murong Xue will have endless fire lotus seeds. She will not be tortured by the pain of cold poison and can have extended life!

How come Murong Xue refuse to adhere to such perfect plan which is beneficial to her and her brother? She may feel insulted to be someone’s second wife. But how can this outweigh her life?

‘Prince, they are not far away from us. I shall call them back, and explain it to them!’ Xu Tianyou has no intention to explain the whole picture of the story to those siblings. He merely wants to persuade Murong Xue marry to Ye Yichen.

‘Not necessary!’  Ye Yichen shook his head to veteo : ‘The return of Murong Xue will only cause disputes between her and Yuyuan, as she merely wants to become first lady princess…………’

‘Murong Xue would die if she doesn’t consume Fire Lotus seed. She deserves it, but it is not worth if your plan to spoil due to her death.’ Said by Xu Tianyou

‘Everyone is afraid of death. No matter how stubborn she is, she will not dare to step into the gate of hell, and she will definitely return before midnight!’ At that moment, she will lose her bargaining power, her name, her status at Jing Palace will be decided by me.

The sun is disappearing from the horizon, Murong Xue leans on MurongYe walking out of the Jing Palace. Murong Ye turned back, have a glance on the plaque which was written with three Bronzing characters ‘Jing Palace’, he said with unwillingness: ‘Sister, are you sure we are leaving?’

Murong Xue voice tinged with sadness: ‘It doesn’t help if keep staying at here, as Ye Yichen will not give me the Fire Lotus Seed.’

If the cold poison persisting, your consequences are unimaginable…………..’Murong Yue speaks softly: Jing palace is probably the only place within the entire capital where we can find Fire Lotus Seed. I am weak and useless as I can’t even get a single life-saving pill for you’

‘’Do not worry; there must be a way out!’ Murong Xue tries to comfort his brother, she patted his shoulder.

You might be right, but you would need to take Fire Lotus Seed within the next 3 hours!’ Murong Ye looks pale: We have searched most pharmacies in the capital, no matter how capable I am, I will certainly not able to find a Fire Lotus Seed within 3 hours.

‘The Fire Lotus Seed is efficient, but there must an alternative way to reduce the toxicity of the cold poison, for example, acupuncture or decoction!’

Murong Ye disapproval: ‘These methods have long been tested by well know doctors, its effect is minimal, to survive you must serve the fire lotus seed……………’

Murong Xue touches her eyebrow; she has seen in a modern medical book, acupuncture can use to cure any kind of poison. Since cold poison is also a kind of poison, how can it incurable?
Sister, what are you thinking? “Murong Ye is extremely worried as she noticed her sister is unconsciously frowning.

“Nothing!” Murong Xue smiles gently: “Brother, does the capital have hot springs?

‘Hot springs? ’Yes, why?’ Mu Rong Ye feels puzzled.

Murong Ye smiled, mysteriously: “I have my own way!’

The night has fallen. Jing palace is lightening up, all of the corpses have been removed, and the residue of blood is wiped clean. There is a gold fragrance furnace locate at the corner, it eliminates the stinky smell of blood in the air. The sand inside the transparent hourglass on the table is flowing down.

Ye Yichen sitting at the stone table, holding a book look, look intentionally or unintentionally at the door of Jing Palace. The red door is left open; there is no one apart from the guard.

Ye Yichen felt irritated, he looks at the scale of the hourglass and his face turns gloomy: It’s midnight soon, and Murong Xue has not returned yet, she is really not afraid of death!’

The sand in the sand drip is flowing and accumulates slowly. It indicates midnight is getting closer. Ye Yichen suddenly stands up, he picked up the white porcelain pot which contains Fire Lotus Seed and striding out.

Xu Tianyou stunned: ‘Prince, where are you going?’

    The editing or translation was really poor in this chapter, lots of broken English being used, i’m only pointing it out because the other 25 chapters while having a few mistakes, combined they had less than this one.

      Sorry for the poor translation. We will improve the quality please stay with us 🙂

    Ok uh, you say princess over and over again but princess is a Female member of a royal family. Prince is male.
    Possessive of prince is prince’s

      1. ockyboo

        lol that was really good. I’m actually ok with it saying princess now XD (but please fix it for the next chapter at least or I’ll get confused ^^||)

  3. FableCat

    Awesome that its back.. not awesome because of another cliffhanger. Thank you for the chapter.

  4. Manga Hunter

    It took me a while to figure out that “princess” was actually “prince,” but I was correcting the grammar in my head, so it was OK, but I would suggest you guys edit this chapter and repost it, since there might be complaints about this chapter later on. On another note: I bet she will cure this poison herself and prove that this incurable poison can be cured…if it is incurable then she will die and that will mark the end of the story. I look forward to more.

Overall, I don’t want to complain like others, since you make the wonderful effort to translate the novel for us, I am just really grateful, so thank you!

  8. Tdxstacy

    I’m happy there’s an update and that we’ll be having more frequent chapters to read but this chapter gave me a headache. I was confused where the “princess” was for awhile. I can’t translate but I can help edit and proofread if you don’t have one currently. I’m on holiday right now and have some time before work starts again.
