Qi Meng Xuanji – Prologue

Haloha dear reader….

I am terribly sorry for the long await of this series.. at least being close to christmas break, there is no more stupid exams, except my final big project, need to be submitted before holiday (another mountain of stress)

Since i choose the web version of Man Chao Huan, the name was also different and there are more detail in the story, so i hope your patience as  i also feel impatience, hahahaha……

For today, i only translated the prologue to provoke your curiosity (or maybe not?). Hopefully i can finish chapter one tomorrow, because the chapter is long enough, almost three times longer than the book version..


Black belly prince and big tortoise beautiful girl. The course of event was so easy to know that the outcome was guaranteed.

Beauties, as the black belly of this generation, the big BOSS prince, Zhao Jian Shen, who appeared to be more than that, never expected that Xie Xuanji was so hard to get.

Temptation had no effect. Although this woman loved money so much, it was not easy to take advantage of her.

Sent her rouge, nail polish and jewelries, she’d change it to money to escape.

Even if she was given a status as Wangfei, she didn’t care at all.

Seduction was seemed to be effective at first, unfortunately it was turned out to be failure.

Being gentle to her, she would doubt he had conspiracy behind it.

Treated her coldly, it didn’t really matter to her.

Made things difficult for her was unsuccesful either, because in front of her, all the problem would be solved in unexpected ways.

This woman responded to him by saying: “Other than gold and silver, any thing that being used by other people, i don’t want them at all!”


Back with the same issue, about copycat and thief, and its family… i still cannot do anything about them  and i am a little bit noob when it comes to program, hehehehe… shall i put password, randomly? Change whenever i want? Or any help?

(PS: This story is belong to 峨嵋 completely, and i am only translating this as a way to study mandarin)


IMPORTANT!!! – Please read this calmly, ok?

I want to translate and continue the story, yes, like i teased you reader before, BUUUUUUTTT!!!!! The raw source i had usually used disappear! Yes, totally disappear and turned into weird advertisement website.

My reaction? CRAAP!!! OH MY DEAR!!! I haven’t save anything about it! So i spent all night long to find the raw and FORTUNATELY; yes, i found it, but it was slightly different than what i used, and worse, every chapter consist randomly of 5-7 chapter of the old one.

I was totally confused where to start and what to do because this one looks a little bit longer, so i wonder, what is your opinion? Please choose!!

A) Retranslate from the beginning (Hopefully it doesn’t take too long to reach the current chapter)

B) Translate it from the last point (which i couldn’t guarantee the story wouldn’t have loopholes which give you strange feeling)

C)Whatever and abandon it (-> this one is quite heartless to you reader.)


Also, regarding the copycat, thief and whatsoever, i am exhausted only by mentioning them, i’d consider put a keyword in each chapter, hopefully i am not crazy enough to change it anytime i want for every different chapter…. What do you think?


(annoying) TEASER!!!

You have been warned!!!!

Yes, i am making a teaser after a long time period of busy daily life. As i said few months ago, i moved out into another country, i moved out once again into different continent for my study and future. YEEEEY!!!!

Believe me, it was stressful, awful, and drove you mad due to lacks of everything, uncertainties, and again you need to adapt in new environment, country, culture, and whatsoever…

I am in a good mood today, even if i supposed to have few assessments due soon and one exam next week and two or maybe 3 for next 2 week… Yes, i hope i can finish my project tonight and continue the story about our cool female MC facing some danger in the next few chapter.


Another hope is…. NO THIEF, PLEASE!!!! Because you (thief, copycat, and its family) destroy my good mood and only God knows what will i do…

So let’s pray and HOPE (while hope is still free to use) that we do not have those annoying for the next chapter….

See you soon!!!!!!!


It has been a long time ago since i posted the previous chapter… Yes, Yes, i am sorry for that as i moved out from a certain country and continent to another country and continent to and it was total hectic to me… Also i need to prepare for another two tests in regards for my future.

Anyway, i notice in several WEBSITE and in WATTPAD, there are people who just copy and paste my translation ( although nothing of the content of the words is changed), CAN YOU (to anyone that copy and paste these) ASK ME FIRST? OR AT LEAT YOU PUT MY BLOG’S LINK ON YOUR BLOG BECAUSE THESE TRANSLATIONS ARE MY HARD WORK!!! I am doing this without any payment so please don’t use this to earn money yourself while i am the one doing the job here!!!   I may even consider stop translating and delete all the previous translation, or i can put random password on each chapter like what has happened on the other few wordpress. THINK, THINK, AND CONSIDER before you copy and paste!

Btw, this chapter is super fast edited during the translation, so please forgive the mixed grammar.. In my place, the weather is really hot like you are inside a person who has a high fever.   Too hot, that even air conditioner feels like a normal fan.


There is no doubt about it that Yun Ge always stay behind the closed door to do the accounting until sunset before leaving the small courtyard. The person she has contact the most is Zhang Ma and Aunt Li, who waits on her. And now, not even the maidservant in the garden has seen her.” Zhang Qiao Yu laughed. “I don’t know whether Wangye allows me to take a leave to the village to visit daughter-in-law?” The point here was he was also very curious about that woman.

This Wangye also plans to go to the village after Spring Festival, please asks me later for traveling together.” Zhao Jian Shen said it slowly. Yun Ge, this girl looked more and more intereseting, but the first one that could see her, it could only be him.

Looking at the white plum blossom outside the window, Zhao Jian Shen leisurely inhlae the cold air, thinking of the beautiful girl slept exactly like a sleeping cat in its nest. His lips brought a shallow smile. Yun Ge ah, Yun Ge, aren’t this meant that you send yourself to appear in front of me once again?

At the same time, in the village, Yun ge still didn’t know what disaster would come to her. She was busy took advantage of the end of the year’s holiday to take a break and stayed in the dream every day.

The girls who are in the courtyard, together with their loved ones, are also saddened by this year’s festive atmossphere

Yun Ge’s time to wake up to do her activity is getting closer and shorter.

Her loved one passed away earlier. She spent the whole ten days of Spring Festival alone without her family, made her numb which turned into a habit. After her mother passed away, she had been busy to make money to pay the debt, because the life keeps continue, which she didn’t expect her fate turned out to be what she has today.

It is also good. Although there are no relatives here, but at least she doesn’t need to worry about food and clothing, also no longer carrying a debt from the previous life. The only regret she has, she still owe herself of love. Live is not complete without it a…

On the New Year’s Eve, Yun Ge spend her day in drowsiness. A loud burst of crackling firecrackers wakes her up. Along with the loud sound of it, her door is opened abruptly. A group of girls who dressed up gorgeously, ‘xi xi ha ha’* to Yun Ge who is still sleeping on her bed. Together they laughed before saying: “Congratulations Accounting Officer** on the auspicious New Year!”

(*This means laughs ha ha hi hi… kinds like a naugty child wakes the parent with big grin on the face.)

(** The raw said 大人, which means big people, but usually can be found in the novel of similar genre like this one. Translated as either minister, officer or simply Daren.)

Yun Ge’s face looks confused, still doesn’t know in what situation she is in right now. She coldly reply: “Uh, you all too, congratulation, congratulation… What is this congratulation for?!”

A songstress jumps out from the crowd to stand before Yun Ge, triumphantly said: “Of course, it is for discussing the New Year’s red envelopes ah!”

Huh?!” Is there such a rule? It couldn’t be! She does the job cleanly, but no one told her to pay the money and give out the red envelopes. Is there any justice left?!

Just as Yun Ge’s small eyes and the beauties’s large eyes stare at each other, Zhang Ma comes in time. “All of you, please do not make fun of Yun Ge. The red envelopes are in my place.”

The girls cheer up as they turn towards Zhang Ma. One of the smiles and says: “Who is always let Yun Ge sleep and sleep a? She is never accompany us to go play, frigthened or not frightened us girls, how can it not be?

Zhang Ma smiles and gives each of the girls a red envelope to their hand. The girls take it and retreat from her room, allowing Yun Ge to stand up and grooming herself. Before leaving, they are also not forget to tell Yun Ge that today she must accompany them to play for the whole day.

After the girls are all gone, Zhang Ma takes out the largest red envelopes and hands it to Yun Ge, looks at the gentle expression on Yun Ge’s face, she pleasantly says: “Miss has worked hard these days. Clean yourself before you go out and play with the other girls. On the big day after tomorrow, my family will bring you to the nearby Miao Yin Temple to burn some incense.” Since it is rare for you to go out, you cannot sleep and then miss it. I’ll let someone to give you a few set of new clothes. Let Aunt Li take you back and dress up for the New Year.”

This is non-edited chapter, because my editor is quite busy, BUT, no worries, it is not like this chapter unreadable, only sometimes i choose the longer words than the compact words, or some mixing grammar. (⁄ ⁄^⁄ᗨ⁄^⁄ ⁄)


Yun Ge’s second month of ‘transmigration’ is the annual festival. Although the heartbroken Yun Ge is a novice but a frail lady, she still needs to sort out the whole years account without no one to help. Zhang Ma has no other choice but to apologize for the tasks Zhao An gives her. As compensation, she especially tells Li Ersao to cook Yun Ge a delicious food every day, including tonic.

After she takes over the control, Yun Ge discovers that, although the number is not big, but it involves a lot of basic necessities. All the business in the vicinity of the village are linked to the manor. The monthly revenue of a manor is probably about one thousand two hundred. To know that here in the village, 22 silver pieces are worth as monthly revenue for the common people, no wonder Zhao Jian Shen have someone to keep them in track such as a nest of rice insects plus the incoming twenty guards of the manor.

This feudal landlord is rich!

Yun Ge doen’t know how long it will take time to organize all the account, hears from Zhang Ma that it need to be done within ten days before the festival so finish it earlier, but delays it until the payment deadline. Seeing the unbelievable look in Zhang Ma and Zhao An eyes, Yun Ge heart tumphs, it’s bad! She estimates the earlier payment, but still doesn’t care that much, only directly goes back to her own room to sleep for two days.

This year, Zhao Jian Shen also receives the account book of the side manor. Although the scriblbles are messy, the accounts is very clear and even the missing and the mistake of the old accounts are corrected and filled.

But Zhao Jian Shen is very unhappy. He lets her manage the village for the two months, and finished the years accounting within ten days. So summarize all in one book, it is very unreasonable but clearly seen that Zhao Jian Shen deliberately makes things difficult. He doesn’t expect that, not only she summarizes all, Yun Ge also does it less than half a month, also does it better than everyone else! Yun Ge ah, Yun Ge, what kind of people are you exactly?

Suddenly Zhao Jian Shen feel excited and looking foward to his servant, Ning Guo, whose he sends to spy on Yun Ge’s daily life to come back and report to him.

Zhang Qiao Yu comes into the study when he sees Zhao Jian Shen smiles while looking at the account book. He thinks which village account book that makes mistake that annoys him? Wangye is usually smile widely when someone is in very bad luck!

Zhang Qiao Yu comes closer to take a look, and finds out it was the account book of the side village that daughter-in-law had managed. He grins and asks a question, “Does Wangye satisfied with Yun Ge?”

Zhao Jian Shen looks up at his teacher, laughed naughtily similarly like in the brothel, secretly glad that his disciple is not that much.

Sort things out only within half a month like a veteran, doing a great job, how can i not be satisfied? I should thank you for your wisdom to be able to find such a rare talent.”

Zhang Qiao Yu who listened to this, is moved. “That little daughter of mine and that kid Zhao An are there, i wonder they find something suspicious about Yun Ge?” Such an very gifted accountant which is also a woman? A woman who was sent by a wealthy merchant?

Zhang Ma who had barely managed the account of whole Wangfu, years back then was the most capable woman in the capital that second to none. Do not know how much jealousy from the aristocrat family.

Knowing that people of this era are illiterate, the arithmetic level is very poor and many accounts are very complex to calculate, they rely the most on ‘Count Bamboo’, the small bamboo sticks to help them count. Among the woman, literacy is less important and will be considered as a rare creature. For a woman to actually manage the account, look at the Ji Guo, not to say the five big cities, the common big business cannot let woman to manage the account. At first Zhao Jian Shen only promise to let Yun Ge manage the account, apart from the temptatio, he really has no intention to make things difficult for her.

Short-rambling : I can say next week until monday the next-next week (Easter holiday) i am away from any hectic life and modern life  (*´╰╯`๓)♬, lets hope that  i have the mood to translate 2 chapters this week…  hohohoho!


As i asked earlier, this chapter turned out to be 75% Translation and 25% Summary and there is no difference between them. Since there is no conversation, i put them in present time, and please excuse the lack of grammar-righteousness. I am way too lazy to translate since our first male MC isn’t there for real, only his name though. As for the next chapter, it’ll come out soon….



Zhao Jian Shen agrees to the idea. Despite being attracted to Yun Ge, Zhao Jian Shen is still suspicious to her background and feels that it isn’t simple as it seems.

If Yun Ge knows what Zhao Jian Shen thinks of her, she will protest him. It was clearly Zhao Da Wangye that arranged her to go to this pavilion.

Yun Ge is frustated upon receives the task. She is obviously planned to be a parasite, how come is she suddenly get a work to do? Does that big boss Zhao pulls something behind the screen? Is it because he can’t she her eating without working? Obviously there are more than dozen girls in the village that idle, get food without working. Why is he suddenly against her?

But weak people has to lower themself under powerful person. Yun Ge pretends to be flattered at her new job.

The old butler only wants quickly go home to hold his grandchildren. Although he is dissatisfied with a woman overtook his post, he still teaches Yun Ge with dedication.

Speaking about Yun Ge, being quick-witted and strong memory are her strength. In her past life, in order to make her mother happy, she learnt the accounting very quickly despite her young age. Because of this aspect, she had a nickname ‘Count Dead Grass*’. All the calculation she did in the past was way to complicated than the current one, where she took a day to fully understand it, and used the rest to understand other things.

(* 算死草 – have no idea to translate it, so i follow what uncle google says. If someone has an idea about this, please kindly tell me)

To avoid everyone attention, Yun ge draggs the accounting for half a month, but even so, Zhang Ma and Zhao An’s people are surprised. As the old butler and accountant of this village, to be able to find such a wonderful succesor, he completely forgot the dissatisfaction in his heart.

Because Yun Ge takes over all the accounting’s matter, she is forced to get up earlier every day, every morning by big BOSS* Zhao Jian Shen and forces her to curse that old bastard teacher Zhang Qiao Yu.

(* The author really wrote BOSS in the raw.)

Luckily that her actual work is ver simple, only need half an hour every day to be done.

Most people cannot enter the account room, plus she is now wearing ‘ ‘Wangye’s woman’ title, even the old Zhao An no longer has free access to the room. Zhang Ma’s hand is also full with another endless trouble. There is no longer free time during the day.

Yun Ge simply smuggled the quilt pillow she hid in the room. Every day in the morning she will close the door and sleep on the bench below the window. After having meal in the noon, she will continue to nap before doing things in the afternoon.

Based on her high demand of sleep, Yun ge now is lacking sleep, resulting her face pale, caused Zhang Ma’s feels pity for her, that she is always looked too tired more than once, so she complains to her father that this arrangement is really wrong.

But Zhang Ma and Zhao An can’t help but admire Zhang Qiao Yu’s sight to the through the people. The household account, after being overtaken by Yun Ge, is became more orderly and presentable.

(TL: 742)

PS: if you can feel the laziness from YG, i was contracted by the same laziness, of course partly was blame to ICE FANTASY. Has anyone watch it yet? Lack of sleep, house is like sunken ship, and kitchen… do not need to ask, hahahahahaha! Since it ended yesterday, i take over the chapter again.


Neither Wangye nor Wangfei were in their other courtyard. In this melancholy mist, chilly and desolate rain, Yun Ge’s heart was very relaxed. The mountain pressure from the two people had finally disappeared, and the series of misfortune that befall upon Wangfei was also gone. The previous peace in the house has settled down once again. All end in a happy life!

When Zhang Ma was in the middle of cleaning the study room, she met the bright face  of early spring of Yun Ge, couldn’t help but stopped her and straightforwardly asked her. “Miss, you had given a great opportunity but refused to go back to Wangfu, what are you going to do by staying here?”

Yun Ge foolishly said, “ Zhang Ma, aren’t you also staying here?”

Zhang Ma felt helpless as she thought how she could be compared to her? When thinking about it again, Yun Ge wasn’t an ignorant woman, so there must be a reason for this. Forget it, as long there was no harm in the Wangfu Zhang Ma thought, I’d follow her along.

Zhang Ma wanted to leave but Yun Ge stopped her. “Zhang Ma, i would like to ask you a favor, can i?

Zhang Ma was alerted but asked her anyway. “Miss please tell.”

Yun Ge grinned. “All the books in this Nanyuan library had been read by me, can you please go to the library in the side manor to pick some books for me?”


Zhang Ma gave a thought. “I don’t understand anything about books, I’m afraid that I will take the wrong book. How about miss tell me what book do you want to read and I will go to find it for you.”

Fictional light reading, as well books about geography and culture, a set of reformation books is also good. Uhm.. in addition a similar book like ‘Gui Xun*’, any other books is also fine. I thank Zhang Ma in advance.” Yun Ge shyly said it.

(To find out what is Gui Xun, check here… though no clear explanation, at least give you some idea what kind of book that is.)

In the night, Zhang Ma went back and told Zhao Jian Shen about it, couldn’t fully understand Yun Ge’s intention, also thought about how she didn’t go out doing something that might have some impact toward the Wangfu. Two days later, she brought Yun Ge one or two books from the library.

Zhao Jian Shen was still not assured, as he told Zhang Ma to test Yun Ge about the content of the books. The result was Yun Ge remembered the books she read vividly, even sometimes she added some unique perspective of her own.

Before married, Zhang Ma followed his father around to read books. Although her talent was not great, but compare to the average men, her knowledge was higher than them. Because after she married with her husband and worked at Wangfu, the time for reading was lessened. And at this moment, she had found someone to talk and discuss about anything, she was, of course, very happy. Heard the odd and strange words from Yun Ge, she couldn’t help but write to his father, Zhang Qiao Yu. Zhang Qiao Yu seemed also very interested in her.

One day, Zhao An wrote a letter about his retirement in some rural area. The manor thus lacked a person to manage. Zhang Qiao Yu hurriedly recommended Yun Ge to Wangye for that.

Hearing that name again, Zhao Jian Shen really couldn’t tell what felt right now in his heart. He thought that a mere feeling to this lowly woman, such feeling would disappeared within a month. He didn’t expect that after two months, only listen when someone mentioned her name, in an instant excited which almost broke his own cold facade, thus couldn’t felt but to let frustration to be born in his heart.

A woman as caretaker, is it appropriate?” Zhao Jian Shen lazily asked.

Wangye, this little girl is also not a mere housekeeper. Beside, in the letter I got, this girl is mentioned to be a smart and extraordinary girl and she stayed in the small manor for a year. Almost all the people in the manor know her. For her to take over this job, and the girl that does not afraid to arouse gossip about this job, it is appropriate.”

(TL: 742 / E: Sovannah)

(Honestly, this chapter used more hour than the previous one, because no interaction between ZJS and YG  (⌯˃̶᷄ ﹏ ˂̶᷄⌯)゚, well, somehow i realise that this series are kinda slow in romance, geeeez!)
