Question about MCH 16-17


Hello hello there!!!!

Sorry to raise your hope high, but i finished chapter 15, only waiting for the editor to take care of the grammar. Meanwhile i want to know your opinion about ch 16-17. These two chapter are about the job Zhao Jian Shen dumps to Yun Ge and they –  rather Zhao Jian Shen meet Yun Ge who is sleep at the moment, without any heart thumping interaction, and only one paragraph of small talk while the rest are description.

I can translate it, no problem, but since i am impatient people, which i bet you all also like that, how about i do some summary? Our couple are still have no interaction until chapter 22, anyway. So guys, should i translate it or just summary or any suggestion?

_____________________________________

Wangye was in the badmood. As the person in charge of him and his guards commander, the two naturally could guess what was on Wangye’s mind so Zhao An secretly asked Zhang Ma to inquire Yun Ge’s situation after the test*.

(*In case anyone ask what kind of test is that, in previous chapter, ZJS ignored YG and instead got ignored by her. There is no long explanation, but use imagination in this part. Using C-Drama as reference is also good)

Zhang Ma brought back the news that caused Zhao An’s head to hurted. The schadenfreude Zhang Qiao Yu was overjoyed as Zhang Ma repeated the information she got about Yun ge – that girl Yun Ge was indeed wanted to stay in separate courtyard.

That being said, several people still couldn’t believe from the bottom of their heart that there was a woman that more than willing to give up the chance to being a phoenix soaring to the sky. Instead, she would chose to ‘fall from the grace’, stayed in the cold palace like the unfavored concubine.

Even after Wangye and his entourage had travel ten miles, Yun Ge had not changed, showing no movement. They all thoroughly believed that Yun Ge was the rarest creature that exist under the heaven.

Zhao Jian Shen was still able to smile warmly like a jade, but the very closed people around him all knew that Wangye was very unhappy!

The entourage kept continue their trip back to the capital city. At the same night, Zhao Jian Shen, without telling anyone, secretly went back to the Hua Ting Hall. Going by to what Zhang Ma told him about Yun Ge’s room, he stealthly and directly snuck into her courtyard.

Zhao Jian Shen came into her room through the window from the outside as he faintly heard the constant sound of her breathing. Knowing that the person in the room was sleeping soundly, Zhao Jian Shen raised his hand to gently push the window without making any sound.

After he opened the window, with one quick leap, Zhao Jian Shen entered the room and saw his own shadow reflected due to the moonlight. This was not a laughing matter. A dignified Wangye like him, to actually doing the same things like a kidnapper only to see his own concubine*, if this was spread out, he would be laughingstock in the entire capital city.

(*ZJS really claims Yun Ge as his concubine, not just a servant, but not even a wife or someone he likes.)

With his skill, in the middle of the darkest night or the usual night made no difference for Zhao Jian Shen. Walked to the side of the bed, he lifted up the veil that covered the bed. On the bed slept the beauty who these past few days kept appearing on his mind.

His fingers gently brushed the eyebrow above of her eyes. He couldn’t help but remember their moment in the library, how Yun Ge looked straight at him with the pair of tranquil and bright eyes where his shadow was reflected. It was engraved deeply in his heart.

He desired this woman but this woman seemed to lacked interest toward him. According to the news from Zhang Ma told him, the moment she heard about their departure, she was very happy! So very damn happy!

Zhao Jian Shen was frustrated, but couldn’t stop the excitement inside of him. It had been such a long time that someone was able to provoke the turbulence in his heart, although it was unintentional.

Due to his prestige and pride, he naturally refused to do such a disgusting act such as forcing an unwilling woman. But due to the unhappiness in his heart, he also couldn’t let this woman lived a happy life!

The deep in sleep Yun Ge felt itchy from all of his touching, frowning as she tried to escape from him.

Zhao Jian Shen smiled. His left hand gently twisted Yun Ge’s chin toward him as he lean closer, gently kissed the red lips of the young maiden, whispered softly, “I will give you another chance. If your appear before me once again, I will take you with me.”

Yun Ge who had been harassed even in her beautiful dream, unconsciously twisted her body around and rolled up into the blanket like a kitten.


Zhao Jian Shen who was about to leave, looking at this cute and funny looking, suddenly he really wanted to turned back. He should just take her with him now!

_____________________________________

Yue Yi asked astonishingly, “What kind of misfortune have you experienced? Who made it difficult for you?”

With a wry smile on her face, Yun Ge said, “Wangye did. He said that even though I knew earlier that Guard Li was suspicious, I didn’t say anything. Then Wangfei would be trapped in danger and I would come to save Wangfei. If there is a chance within million that actually happened, I reckon that I cannot sit here and talk to you all today.”

Disappointed, the songstress all complained. “Ah!? You knew it earlier? Why didn’t you said it? Needless to say that Wangfei was in danger, we were also scared to death. It was a good thing you ruined it.”

Yue Yi nodded her head. “Yun Ge, in fact you were in the wrong.”

Yun Ge sighed desperately. Yesterday she was almost forced to be buried with the princess, today due to Wangye worrying for Wangfei, Wangye rebuked her. What kind of moral was that?

Several women were relatively depressed and stayed silent. From the outside Zhang Ma’s voice could be heard.

By opening the door, they saw Zhang Ma came and was followed by two maidservants by her side, the yesterday maids that stood on the side of the Wangfei. Their hands holding two large tray piled up with gold and silver jewelry and silk scarfed adding up like a hill. Suddenly the eyes of the women inside the room shone brightly.

Zhang Ma ordered the servants to put the things down and said that these were the rewards from Wangfei. Yun Ge thanked her three times before Zhang Ma took the servants away.

When she went back to her room, Yun Ge was meet with the sight of the women fighting excitedly like bloody cockfighters. Although Wangye didn’t seem to like Yun Ge, but the Wangfei seemed quite pleased with Yun Ge. As long Yun Ge followed Wangfei back to the palace, she didn’t need to worry about having no chance.

Yun Ge was forced to deal with them, listened to their frivolousness and they reluctantly left after eating dinner there. Before leaving, they didn’t forget reminded her repeatedly: After arriving at the Wangfu, do not forget to bring friends.

Yun Ge closed the door, stared at the gifts from Wangfei depressedly. Why doesn’t send her a cash reward instead? To carry these things around were very inconvenient and they were easily went into depreciation. That was really a big lost!

 

As she hastily put the gifts aside, Aunt Li came to help her boiled the water for bathing. A thought appeared to Yun Ge, from the pile of the gifts, she took three pieces of jade hairpin and put it in Aunt Li’s head.

Aunt Li quickly declined. “These things are too expensive. This old woman dare not to accept ah!”

Yun Ge smiled while saying, “Just take it. Give one to your daughter, the rest you can give it to your future daughter in law. I always troubled you, how can I be so ungrateful.”

Despite the refusal earlier, Aunt Li finally reluctantly accepted it. Yun Ge felt relieved. These things were better than some cash, but no matter what the outcome is, it is still good to give people something.

Wangye and Wangfei were rest in another pavilion for two days. Their intention about returning to the Wangfu in the capital was known by the servant of the room that currently boiled the pot and was spreaded out.

Every each of them thought about the possibility of being able to go back to the capital with Wangye. Many people had the same idea as Yun Ge. Yun Ge was thoroughly annoyed because they were hiding behind her as a shield. Anyway, the reputation of her addiction of sleeping were known not only for a day or two.

In the recent day, Wangye did not sent someone to harass her. She reckoned Wangye probably forgot about his own little servants. That gave her a piece of mind being that she only needed to wait Wangye go, then they can continue to live a dream life like a pest.

Yun Ge was very happy, there was also unhappy people, such as Zhao Jian Shen.

For these past two days he deliberately acted cold towards Yun Ge as a test. Other women in the pavilion, each one of them had tried every mean and trick to win his favor. This woman acted like there was nothing wrong in her life, all she did was sleeping all day long.

Man Chao Huan – Chapter 12


Holllahoooo!!!

For that, i am sincerely apologize. ‘The Higher Up’ from home came to check if my life is still on the right order and yeah, i got pile of new and renewal responsibility, adding with bad weather here in somewhere part of Europe, caused my influenza viruses flares up almost every day. ლ(。-﹏-。 ლ)

Mr. Zhang seems like her, how about i send her to you?” Zhao Jian Shen smiled wickedly.

Count me out! How could a young fresh flower that that matches with this old man? What a violation under the heaven! Wangye, if you like, you can bring her into the Wangfu, pressumably Wangfei will be verry happy about that.” Zhang Qiao Yu this old urchin, Zhao An who stood beside him, he really wanted to laugh but dared not, only held it back painfully.

Say it straight to the point!” Zhao Jian Shen really didn’t want to urge this old man recklessly.

Ah, this Yun Ge acted strange and indifferent, unlike those women from lowbirth, her attitude is neither overbearing nor humble. Speaking about that, even the ordinary man who dares to express their opinion in front of Wangye are not much. This girl is really not that simple, ah!”

Zhao Jian Shen nodded slightly, hinted Zhao An that the old man also talk about his own opinion.

Very calm and composure. Just like yesterday, under such a dangerous situation, it was clearly seen that, rarely, a weak woman dare to confront a 7-feet tall man armed with weapon and decided anything decisively. She is not an ordinary person, but…” Zhao An wondered about what kind of words should he used.

But i feel her answer for today was not revealing all the truth.” Zhang Qiao Yu said with a smile.

According to what i have remembered, this Yun Ge seemed to deliberately move further away from the position Li Kai was on, avoided to stay too close to Li Kai.” Zhao An said.

This girl should have known that Li Kai was hiding something since the beginning. Zhao An, have you really confirmed that she really doesn’t know any martial arts?”

“Judging from her breathing and movement, she does not seem know any martial arts.” Zhao An was very sure about that.

Wangye, from what this old man see, this girl Yun Ge’s background is really not that simple. Since there is no more malicious intention towards this Wangfu, just want to see what Wangye will do to take care the matter on hand.” Zhang Qiao Yu winked with a hidden meaning, didn’t expect that this Wangye’s attitude was so plain as water surface, to think he could fooled this old man’s eyes.

Wangye was clear as day very interested in this woman!

The more interesting part to see was at the time this woman looked at Wangye’s eyes insipidly with her clear eyes and didn’t seem different from the way she looked at an ordinary person.

It was unexpectedly existed a woman that didn’t have even a bit interest in this high rank Wangye who was smart and handsome that was famous among seven country?! This was really not a simple amusement.

Yun Ge had not yet finished her lunch, several singer dragged Yue Yi along who was quite familiar with Yun Ge to her room. Although they were frightened yesterday, but to find that Wangye was so handsome and then they thought since yesterday Yun Ge had saved Wangfei, she made a great contributions and to be summoned today, their heart were thumped irregularly.

Perhaps, soon Yun Ge would became the rightful Wangfei on the Wangye’s side, only by her mentioning their name, they didn’t need to sit on the cold bench alone anymore.

This several women bickered around Yun Ge, kept asking her the same question about how was the meeting with the Wangye just now, what kind of clothes was the Wangye wearing, what were they talking about, who was waiting beside Wangye. The main focus was would Yun Ge come along with Wangye to going back to his Wangfu?

Yun Ge’s head suffered a great dizziness and reluctantly said: “This little woman has just come back from the calamity, the beauties here please be lenient on me and spare me this time, alright?”

WHAT’S YOUR GENDER, PRINCESS? – CHAPTER 13 PART 1


 

I stood still on the ground, couldn’t clearly tell what kind of feeling i had in my heart, only said: “Wu Min Jun, you people are really…”

How was it for real, but didn’t know how to say it.

He instructed me to summon Sheng An back, treated her properly, because i was the one who started the conversation: “Do you know, she is dressed just in plain clothes, her ear is only decorated with white colored flower bud….” He made me to change it into blossomed flower, and actually because of that, they got an answer from Sheng An, a terrible information.

Wu Min Jun understood women than women herself. I really don’t understand how he was born with such exquisite intelligence and twisted mind.

Wu Min Jun looked at me. “What?”

I shook my head. “It’s nothing, only i feel Sheng An is really pitiful.”

Just because people deceived her to think she can have you.” Wu Min Jun’s lips twitched. “You still can say such nonsense.”

I let out a sigh. “Precisely because of that that i think she was so pitiful. To be cheated like that was not an honorable things.”

Hey, who did you know that Sheng An will tell you that?”

It was obvious, since they wanted to assassinate me, it was impossible for them to do the impossible task only once. But i couldn’t predict the precise time, that’s why i coaxed the words out from Sheng An.” He said ligthly.

I shook my head: “Smart like a demon. Wu Min Jun, i am afraid that you will not life for long due to the jealousy from others because of your outstanding ability.”

With hidden understanding, Wu Min Jun said: “Rest assured, as my empress, you must be burried with me.”

I glanced at him and said: “What are we going to do about this? Letting her go like that to Nan Wen Country? What about the people in her clan?”

Wu Min Jun said: “Kill them.”

I was perplexed: “Ah? Didn’t you said, as an emperor, you cannot let out image of a tyrant and arbitarily kill people?”

Wu Min Jun faintly smiled: “Who said that i am murderous? Princess Sheng An didn’t only tell us, also left the evidence.”

I hesitantly asked: “That three words?”

Wu Min Jun smiled and nodded his head. He draw out that paper that had three words ‘Yuan Jun An’. “It was a well copy from Yi Wang Family. Irregardless of old and young, or their gender, they are all to be punished.”

…..” I stared blankly at Wu Min Jun for short awhile before shook my head. “I do not make such a decree.”

Wu Min Jun coldly said: “What has happened?”

_____________________________________________________________________________

T/N : Honestly, though i like this kind of story, it is a bit harder than MCH to translate, also the chapter almost 3 time longer, and took longer time to translate. As for schedule, i can only say MCH is one chapter per week, while WGYP, i can’t say for sure. but i will not abandoned both of them, only take longer time than the other translator.

Man Chao Huan – Chapter 11


Compare to the previous chapters, this one is a bit tricky, especially if the author used idioms here and there and i am quite blind about that, although i found a book about ‘500 Common Chinese Idioms’, i still need to wreck my brain.

Btw, i found a comedy C-manhwa (or is it manhua?) Firstly it was only the manga. It is funny and the drawing is my cup of tea somehow and i persistently searched for it raw manga and ended up in its raw C-novel. I think the status is still ongoing. Shall this moody newbie translator pick that one?

The name is Feng Qi Cang Lan. Good, but too short since less people know about it, and the translators really need some mood booster and support. If you like C-novel like DKC, GDBBM, or similar like that, you should like it also.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Chapter 11

Yun Ge was startled. Mother oh Mother….. This man changed too fast! She secretly stole a glance at Zhao Jian Shen, he was exactly the same evil* like the old fox bos this year, one with ruthless character, casually fooled others that even death sounded miserable.

(*腹黑老狐狸 – fù hēi lǎohúlí : Black bellied old fox. i notice that lot of C-novel have this words. i searched google and it said black bellied means like someone who has evil thought, should be like Jun Wu Xie from GDBBM.)

To honestly said to one self that you are inhuman and i am unrighteous, let the bandits seized the Wangfei, pretended to be poisoned to escape the chaos? Then looked at the bandits, who originally planned to rape the girls and kill them afterwards, only to have a temporary change of mind?

That’s being said, they were all dead for sure.

But if you said it all together recklessly, it was very likely that she would suffer the same fate as the bandits, a death.

As if she could read his mind, Yun Ge replied him with determination: “This lowly one only felt a doubt, but there is no evidence. That why i dare not to say, did not intentionally deceive anyone.”

The look on Zhao Jian Shen’s face was still normal, she boldly continued: “Guard Li, who at that time lying down around the corner said ‘Send out guards for help, all brothers has been killed’. At that time, this lowly one didn’t feel anything wrong with that. After that, all the guards came to defend from the outside, meanwhile in the hall only this Guard Li left alone. This lowly servant was timid. But by recalling that sentence, she felt something wrong.”

By the time Guard Li came, the bandits had besieged the manor for one two shichen*. If in a case that big brother guard was killed in the village, he didn’t need to wait until now to report. If he was killed during the journey, how did he learned the information? All of this was just this lowly servant blind presumption, so she dared not to act recklessly, also didn’t want to accuse wrongly at the guards’ life in the Wangfu, that’s why she dared not to say. Regarding to the fear that Wangfei experienced, this lowly servant really deserves death of thousands time**.

(*This shichen is really popular within historical C-novel. If i am not mistaken, 1 shichen = 2 hours of our modern time)

(**万死 : thousands of death. A famous words in every historical C-novel, even in C-drama.)

Well, she said it like this should be very reasonable and fair. Yun Ge secretly cheered in her heart.

You are overly cautious! This time’s matter, you really deserved the credit. You retreat first, Wangfei will reward you later!” Zhao Jian Shen no longer made it hard for her, only looked probing at her eyes with deeper meaning.

Yun Ge forced herself to calmly thanked him and bid him farewell before exiting the study room. He walked slowly all the way back to her room while spitting out all the sighed without no one looking.

What a terrible situation, almost reveal the secret!

In fact, at that time she found to suspicion. First was the words from the guard. Secondly was from the clothes of the guard. The upper part of it was stained with blood, but the whole clotes was completely tidy and neat. He was cut through the waist part, so where were so much blood come from? But since the guard had been clutching the wound from his waist, no one could see clearly how worse was the wound. But during the move, from inside the gap was revealed a white colored middle garment. In contrast on the outer part of his clothes there was a trace of blood. Blood flowed from inside out, so it was very unreasonable that the middle garment had less blood than the outer clothing.

Yun Ge who had seen this tiny facts, recalled that the words from the guard was not usual only to infer that he was the spy. But according to her knowledge, here in this world, the matter of dignity between men and women was a very serious thing. If a weak young women dared to stare at the man which covered with blood, it was no doubt like seeing a ghost. Therefore, under many consideration, she let them found any loophole in her rather than deliberately concealed it but no solid evidence to prove herself.

To be able to eat the delicious ribs and carrots that Aunt Li specially cooked for her, Yun Ge secretly rejoice in her heart that she passed today’s hurdle, but she didn’t care about the loophole those old fox had found in her.

In the study room, Zhao Jian Shen asked Zhang Qiao Yu and Zhao An: “What do you think about this Yun Ge?”

Zhang Qiao Yu revealed a very casual looked and smiled: “She is indeed a beauty.”
