Not too long after, Lou Xi Wu’s lovable and charming figure came into the room at the moment, after she saluted one after another, Lou Xi Wu sat down beside Qi Tian Yu, sticking out her mouth, she humphed: “Qi dage (elder brother), you have not come and seen us for quite a while.”
Qi Tian Yu always considered her like his own sister whom he loved dearly, seeing that she was pouting, he immediately took out a slender box from his sleeve, and stuffed it on her hand softly, then smilingly said: “Am I not here now?! I give you Yancheng’s (the city) most well-known jade hairpin.”
“Really?” Lou Xi Wu opened the box that she got surprisingly, there was a spotless white gem with a glossy white jade that was quietly placed in there. Lou Xi Wu extremely liked it, then she happily smiled and said: “Thank you, Qi dage.”
The two people were talking and smiling, and did not pay any attention to Jing Sa who was on the side, whose original face was already dark and it was even darker now that he could scare people. At this moment, Zhuo Qing’s party delegation came in also, Qi Tian Yu looked one glance, immediately met with Gu Yun’s petite figure who was adorable and sweet in appearance, then he put his whole gaze on to her. The three people had not sat down yet, but he already asked fearlessly: “Sister in law (the actual words are saozi, older brother’s wife), who is the young beautiful woman beside you?”
“Qi Tian Yu, long time no see, you are still the same, but I advise you that it is best that you do not provoke her.” Zhuo Qing broke into laughter, this person was really a rough and coarse rascal, so long as he was able to look at a woman and he wanted to take liberties with her!
Qi Tian Yu did not understand and asked: “Why?”
Zhuo Qing was somewhat pointing her finger and looked one glance at Su Ling who was behind him (QTY) and whose face was like a black cloud. Qi Tian Yu turned around to be in contact with Su Ling’s cold eagle eyes, watching it with a smile, it turned out that the beautiful woman already had an owner.
Lightly coughing, Qi Tian Yu tactfully smiled and said: “It seems that I am one step too late.” Picking up his wine cup, Qi Tian Yu drank to toast Lou Xi Yan and Zhuo Qing and smilingly said: “I did not drink the wedding feast last time, I want to drink one cup this time!”
Lou Xi Yan also lifted up his wine cup, smilingly said: “Everyone does it together, ok.”
Everyone drank a toast, Yan Hong Tian picked up a cup of tea that was next to him and passed it on to Qing Feng’s hand, and he said softly: “You drink this.”
This act did not escape from Zhuo Qing and Gu Yun’s eyes, both of them looked at each other and smiled, not bad, there was also feeling between Yan Hong Tian and Qing Feng.
A group of people were drinking while they were also chatting, when they were done eating the meal, the moon was already at the tip of the branch, and it was close to zishi (11 pm-1 am). As a new groom, Lou Xi Yan naturally drank a lot of wine, so he was intoxicated and could not walk. Finally, Mo Bai and Zhuo Qing were lending their arms to support him, but he was still staggering all the way back to Lan Yue building.
Outside of Lan Yue building, Qi Tian Yu stubbornly wanted to go in to disturb the privacy of the bridal room, but he was blocked by the cold and strong Jing Sa’s face who was standing outside the courtyard: “Master is already intoxicated, Qi Gongzi, please return, ok.”
Comparing to Lou Xi Yan who was completely drunk, Qi Tian Yu’s was still clear headed obviously except for his face that was somewhat flushed, his expression was sober and calm. Putting his hand on Jing Sa’s shoulder, Qi Tian Yu smilingly said: “This can not do, we are still not disturbing the privacy of the bridal room yet!”
Yan Hong Tian’s delegation originally wanted to leave, but looking at Qi Tian Yu who persisted to want to disturb the privacy of the bridal room, they simply decided not to leave too hurriedly, all of them were encircling the outside of Lan Yue building.
Jing Sa remained unmoved as before, and he answered coldly: “The time is already late, Qi Gongzi, please return, ok!”
Qi Tian Yu turned around to give a supercilious look, how did Xi Yan find this blockhead to be a housekeeper, he was not fun at all. Patting Jing Sa’s shoulder strongly, Qi Tian Yu was unwilling to give up and he continued to say: “Jing Sa, do not be this serious! Disturbing the privacy of the bridal room is part of the festive ah! Xi Yan will not mind it.”
Jing Sa retreated back for one step, he ignored his words immediately this time, his tall figure stood up at the gate of the courtyard and stayed to make sure that they did not go in.
Lou Xi Wu who was standing beside Qi Tian Yu and because she also drank several cups of wine, her complexion was captivatingly red, her footsteps were somewhat weak and unstable, but her mouth still joined in the fun, she laughed heartily and said: “Right ah, right ah! We want to disturb the privacy of the bridal room!! Disturb the privacy of the bridal room!!”
Looking that she was standing unsteadily and still shouting noisily, Jing Sa helplessly stepped forward to support her unsteady body, then he said in a gentle voice: “Stop making trouble!”
Qi Tian Yu was looking interestingly at Jing Sa who was seldom gentle and soft, he could not help to smile and say: “Ck ck ck, truly favoring one and discriminating against the other ah! It seems that I am not here for three months, the Prime Minister’s manor is filled with love affairs ah!” (The actual words are actually peach blossom – 桃花 which can mean love affair). This block of stone finally got it straight la! It seemed that he chose a wrong time to be away from home, and then missed many good shows!
This obvious tease made Lou Xi Wu was ashamed so she lightly struggled to get free from Jing Sa’s hand, and she called out in a low voice: “Qi dage! What nonsense are you talking about?!”
“Nonsense talk?” Qi Tian Yu put both of his hands on his chest, casted a sidelong glance at Jing Sa, he lowly smiled and said: “I am thinking that you are going to get married soon, but as it turns out, I misinterpret it wrongly?!”
Even though it was clearly a teasing, Jing Sa’s face was still as before and did not look red due to anger or panting, his face was still looking coldly.
Mo Bai just happened to come out from the inside courtyard at this moment, looking at a group of people outside of the door who clearly wished to continue to do something, he just understood what they wanted to do. Not saying anything, Mo Bai and Jing Sa stood side by side, the two people, one on the left and the other on the right, were standing in front of the gate to seal tightly the courtyard door that was not big.
Lou Xi Wu was sensitive, being teased by Qi Tian Yu like this, her original face that was red because of the wine, became annoyed quickly so she was glaring at him, then Lou Xi Wu called out: “You always tease people! If you really have the ability, just think of a way to cross over these two gate deities so we can go in ah!”
Qi Tian Yu lightly raised his eyebrows, crossing over them would be impossible! Speaking of martial art, if there was only Jing Sa, he could still try it, but Mo Bai was also here now, he was surely not his opponent. Turning around to look one glance at this group of people who were behind him and who were waiting to watch a good show. They would not help so Qi Tian Yu sighed grievingly, and he still had to lean on himself, right.
Thinking deeply for a moment, Qi Tian Yu suddenly showed a crafty smile: “I have a way!”
Once Qi Tian Yu finished talking, he turned around to run to the rear court, everyone was looking at each other in dismay, all of them did not know what he wanted to do. But looking at his confident appearance a moment ago, they were somewhat curious and looking forward to his plan.
Inside the courtyard, Zhuo Qing’s heart was cursing at Mo Bai from head to toes, he knew perfectly well that Lou Xi Yan was intoxicated, he (MB) unexpectedly only helped him (LXY) until the door and then left, in any case he should help his master get on the bed, right!!
Zhuo Qing’s one hand was supporting Lou Xi Yan while her other hand pushed the door, who would have thought that the wooden door was really heavy. When she pushed the door, it unexpectedly did not push open, Lou Xi Yan continuously leaned on her shoulder. Zhuo Qing clenched her teeth, both of her hands were holding Lou Xi Yan’s waist. Lifting up her right leg, she kicked the door strongly, the door made a loud sound and was finally able to be opened so she breathed relaxingly. Zhuo Qing took Lou Xi Yan’s arms to assist him, the two people were stepping inside the room swayingly, but the doorway was somewhat tall and Zhuo Qing was wearing a long cheong sam skirt today so her foot tripped on it and both of them went down together.
Zhuo Qing’s heart was cold, oh no, howling in grief and waiting for the pain to come and meet her, just when she was about to fall on the ground, Zhuo Qing only felt that her waist was tight. She was already held by two pair of big hands and fell on his bosom, and Lou Xi Yan’s nervous inquiry echoed in her ear: “Be careful! Did you break anything?”
Zhuo Qing raised her head, only to see that Lou Xi Yan’s worry face that was looking at her, his expression was clear and pure, his footsteps were firm, she could not see any drunkenness on him. Zhuo Qing coldly humphed: “You are not intoxicated?”
Darn it, he was not intoxicated but he made her to support him to walk like that for a long time, and made her dripping with sweat now!
Taking her to his bosom, Lou Xi Yan’s elegant phoenix eyes narrowed slightly, he gently smiled and said: “This kind of day today, I can not be intoxicated drinking a good wine.”
The hallow of his palm was scorching, and with his ambiguous intonation, it made Zhuo Qing’s heart was overflowed slightly. But looking at his clear and bright appearances at the moment, and remembering that she was so tired to death a moment ago, he was still pretending to be intoxicated, Zhuo Qing could not help to be angry, and coldly humphed: “You are really a fox.”
Lou Xi Yan’s double sword looking eyebrows knitted gently, distressingly answered: “Husband is not able to hold alcohol, I do not pretend to be intoxicated so I can really be carried back!” Su Ling was always able to hold a huge volume (of alcohol), Hong Tian could not be intoxicated even if he drank a thousand cups, no need to talk more about Tian Yu. Even if the bubble in the wine jar was long and big (this is a saying that even if he was soaking in the wine as he grew up), how could he fight them?! Dan Yu Lan already left at an earlier time, if he did not pretend to be intoxicated, it was estimated that they could drink until dawn!
Through the material of her clothing, Zhuo Qing could still feel the scorching palm of his hand, lightly patting his hand, Zhuo Qing gave him a cup of hot tea, then she sighed and said: “Drink a little tea, ok, you also drink a lot of wine tonight.” The wine that Yan Hong Tian brought were strong, Yun was the only one who could drink it without changing any color, she and Xi Wu selected a relatively milder wine.
Taking the hot tea from Zhuo Qing’s hand and putting it aside, Lou Xi Yan’s hand embraced her graceful waist again, lightly carrying and putting her on his embrace to sit on his legs. Lou Xi Yan picked up the wine cups that were already prepared earlier, and poured a couple of cups of wine. He put one cup in Zhuo Qing’s hand, and he was holding another cup on his hand, then smilingly said: “I think that we should drink a formal exchange of cups between the bride and groom now.” (If you’re familiar with this tradition, the new couple usually drink a cup from each other’s hand before their wedding night. They’re criss crossing their hands so ZQ will drink from LXY’s cup & vice versa).
Still wanting to drink? He already drank enough tonight, putting down the wine cup from her hand, Zhuo Qing advised: “We have already drunk that ritual wedding ceremony by the bride and groom on that day, we do but need to drink again tonight.”
Thinking that day, after they drank the formal exchange of cups of wine ceremony, she said that promise, Lou Xi Yan’s heart felt warmth and happy. Bowing his head to look one glance at the cup of wine, Lou Xi Yan craftily smiled and answered: “Fine, no need to drink the formal exchange of cups of wine ceremony again, I will just feed you this cup of wine.”
Zhuo Qing had not reacted yet, Lou Xi Yan already drank up a mouthful of wine, his warm lips rapidly captured her lips, and the good wine was fed slowly into her mouth. Xi Yan’s distinct and clear breath, the wine sweet and spicy tastes, Zhuo Qing was somewhat tipsy and she humphed lowly: “Oh……”
After a very long time, then Lou Xi Yan only wished to release her, Zhuo Qing’s face was captivatingly red, staring at his complacent and smiling face, she scolded lowly: “Do not think of continuing to pretend that you are intoxicated, you simply look like a rascal at the moment!”
Lou Xi Yan did not mind it, using her shoulder to rest his chin, he slightly narrowed his eyes, smiling comfortably and gently, he said: “En, I am really intoxicated, being intoxicated…… by a beauty.”
“How have I not find out before that your mouth is so inadequate.” His shallow breaths were blowing on her shoulder and tickling her, it was tingling. Zhuo Qing disliked being tickled so she gently pushed Lou Xi Yan’s handsome face away leisurely. Thinking that she had not seen Lou Mu Hai tonight, Zhuo Qing asked: “Oh right, where is your dad?”
“Oh.” She responded lowly, she did not say anything more, but Zhuo Qing’s heart had some regrets, that she still ultimately could not obtain the elder generation’s approval.
Feeling that the person who was in his embrace and whose mood was suddenly changed into a downcast mood, Lou Xi Yan lifted up his head, and he deliberately smiled by the side of her ear and said lowly: “He said before he left……”
What did he say? Zhuo Qing looked towards Lou Xi Yan curiously, but only to see that he suddenly kept his lips close to Zhuo Qing’s ear, then he whispered ambiguously: “To make you to quickly give him a grandson. So……”
Lightly pushing his handsome face away, Zhuo Qing pretended to be foolish deliberately and said: “So what?”
“So we can not make him, the old person, to be disappointed ah!”
“Ah!” Lou Xi Yan suddenly carried her up unexpectedly, Zhuo Qing was scared so she shouted lowly.
Entering the bedroom in large strides, and softly putting Zhuo Qing on the captivating big red bed, Lou Xi Yan leaned forward slowly. The two people’s eyes were looking at each other like this, the tip of their noses were sticking, they could breathe each other’s breaths, both of their breathings began to be unsteady gradually. His slender hands were caressing her graceful and thin shoulder, Lou Xi Yan’s phoenix eyes raised gently, his serene gaze was lingering on Zhuo Qing’s chest, pointing his finger, he softly smiled and said: “I heard that the technique of mother in law’s tattoo was matchless in the whole world, I had not seen it by the side of the hot spring last time, I want to appreciate it properly this time.”
“Xi Yan!” This person’s spoken words were more and more indecent!! The two of them were thinking of the scene when they were at the hot spring at the same time. Lou Xi Yan wished to continue to say more, but Zhuo Qing’s face was already red.
Lou Xi Yan pulled the curtain covering veil softly, the thin muslin slid down leisurely and covered the room with charming and gentle atmosphere.
Outside the courtyard of the Lan Yue building, a group of people were doing nothing and could not enter either, they also were not willing to leave. Pestling in front of Lan Yue building to wait for what Qi Tian Yu’s so called ‘a way’ was.
Soon, Qi Tian Yu was holding two wooden basins, and his hand was also dragging several branches that were a little bit thinner than a woman’s wrist. His whole face had a smiling expression when he walked to come over, everyone was confused, what kind of way was this?!
Taking the wooden basin and putting them on the ground, Qi Tian Yu gripped the branches and stuffed them at Su Ling and Yan Hong Tian’s hands who still had indescribable faces, then he smiled proudly on himself and said: “We can not go in, we will just let them come out, it will be fine!”
Gu Yun was casting a sidelong glance at Qi Tian Yu, and she looked at him with a foolish and blank expressions: “Come out? How do they come out?” A spring night was worth a thousand gold (the word “spring” can be associated with love so the meaning of this sentence is that a wedding night is priceless), if Lou Xi Yan was willing to come out at this time, then he would be a terrible person!!
Qi Tian Yu laughed mischievously, looking at everyone’s expressions who was doubting him, lifting the branch, he was beating the wooden basin to make a strange and odd sound, while he was shouting with a big voice: “Fire la! Quickly put out the fire ah.”
“Quickly, people come ah! Put out the fire!” The quiet night was suddenly pierced by the yelling immediately, the sound penetrated powerfully!
Being stunned looking at Qi Tian Yu who was beating the wooden basin and yelling really loud, Gu Yun stroke her forehead lightly, then she sighed grievingly and said: “Heaven……” How did Lou Xi Yan can make friends with this silly and bad friend?!
Lou Xi Wu was also looking foolishly, this was what Qi dage so called a way?
Even though this so called a way was really silly and boring, but towards the two men who were already drinking the wine for the whole night and without their usual concentrated attentions, this crazy action appeared to be reckless and attractive. After seeing Su Ling and Yan Hong Tian who were looking one glance at each other, they unexpectedly were waving the branches on their hands, they were beating the wooden basin while hollering. Gu Yun and Qing Feng, these two people, retreated to the side in silence, they did not know whether to laugh or cry.
Hearing the shouting and yelling, the Prime Minister’s family servants and Imperial bodyguards were hurrying to come over continuously, they were carrying some buckets and wooden basins. But looking at the scene before their eyes, all of them could not help but to be flabbergasted.
Head housekeeper Jing’s and Imperial bodyguard Mo’s complexions were black, staring at the few people who were shouting and screaming in front of the courtyard, but they also could not step forward to stop them. Because the people ‘who created the disturbance’ were precisely the Emperor, General Su and Master’s close friend, Qi Gongzi, how could this be good for them?!
As a result, these several males were crazy in front of Lan Yue building because of the wine, this group of people did but know what to say. In the middle of the night, the Prime Minister’s manor was completely noisy.
The shouting outside the courtyard was daunting and vigorous, there was a spring scenery without boundary inside the room, Zhuo Qing’s whole clothing were thrown on the ground by Lou Xi Yan for a long time. Grabbing a thin quilt to cover her body, she separated and raised her head to dodge Lou Xi Yan’s gentle kisses on her neck. Zhuo Qing was slightly gasping and she asked: “Fire? Do you or do you not want….. to go out to see?”
The deeply engrossed, warm, fragrant, soft jade was closed tightly with the man for the first time and he said: “Not going.” He must make her become his woman completely, nothing could prevent him. Moreover, if there was really anything that could threaten their safeties, Mo Bai would naturally come in to say it. This kind of disturbance was absolutely caused by that group of idle and noisy people!
“But……” Zhuo Qing still wanted to say something, Lou Xi Yan’s two hands slowly tightened, the bodies of the two of them were sticking closely together, the scorching of the body’s temperature made Zhuo Qing’s breathing was more and more unstable.
“Let it burn, ok.” Nibbling Zhuo Qing’s shoulder, Lou Xi Yan’s hoarse and low voice as if there was a mellow and strong alcohol drink, it made someone tipsy.
The night scene was dense gradually, the autumn wind was attacking the people, the water outside the courtyard was rippling, and boiling a cauldron of voices! Inside the room, the candle night was swaying gently, with charming and gentle moans!
Wow, we did it! We actually finished this book!!! Thank you to all of our readers who have been following this book from the beginning. Thank you to Nutty who is willing to share her blog with me. And thank you to those who always leave comments in each of the chapter. I know that I don’t reply to all of your comments but I really do read and love your comments.
I do want to say that I’m a little disappointed with the author (Qian Lu) that she did not actually write something so ZQ could somehow tell LXY that she wasn’t Qing Ling. We knew that LXY started to question this in the previous chapter but Qian Lu decided not to wrap up this one loose end for us in this book. But other than that, I love this book despite it’s a long book. LXY and ZQ will always be my most favorite couple…
On another note, we’re going to take a little break from translating a new book. As you all know, translating takes a lot of time so I need to make sure that I can put the necessary determination and commitment to translate and finish the next book. As for the title, we’ll probably translate In Search of Love by Ming Yue Ting Feng. This novel seems interesting. It’s a longer novel, total chapters wise, so it’s kind of scary. But I’m hoping it’s a shorter story per chapter. If you want to read the first chapter of this novel, here is the link, https://bananachocolatecosmos.wordpress.com/2016/07/16/1st-chapter-series《寻郎》searching-for-husbandlover-in-search-of-love-by-ming-yue-ting-feng-明月听风/
Or if In Search of Love is too long of a novel, I may translate another Qian Lu’s novel, Happy Days. Here is the link for the first two chapters that were translated by another translator, https://elliphantomhive.wordpress.com/2016/11/10/hdtwk-01/Happy Days.
Ok, I know some of you are still trying to ask me to continue translating Gu Yun’s book. “Sigh…” Every chapter in GY’s book is sooo long and the fact that I’m not a big fan of both GY & SL’s characters make it difficult to pick up this project. I’ll check with Nutty and see what she thinks about this. But don’t keep your hope too high on this. Hehehe… Beg Din2, she actually likes GY’s character a lot more than me.
With that said, stay tune for the next update. In the meantime, I’m going to rest and enjoy reading other people’s translations and watch a lot of dramas! 😃😃😃
