Record of Washed Grievances Chapter 77: A Minor Incident That Sparked A War

I’m posting this chapter a little earlier… This was kind of an embarrassing chapter to translate… ☺️☺️☺️ Darn it, I was still blushing when I did the proofreading… Don’t yell at me for the interruption though…  This was actually a short chapter, only over 2,500 words.

This chapter was translated for only. And only for those people who don’t mind reading unprofessional translation that was being translated FREELY using the translator’s and editor’s own free times. So rude & entitled people aren’t welcome to read this translation!!! So GO AWAY….


Thinking of Yan Ru Xuan’s provocation in the afternoon, and saying that she did not worry about it completely was definitely a lie, Lou Xi Yan was more of a nobleman, it made her want to have something to happen with him even more. Anyway, they loved each other, and getting marriage was the prerequisite of the relationship, if this relationship was to occur, it should be normal, right.

Building her mental state properly for a moment, she decided that she wanted to seduce Lou Xi Yan!

But saying was easy, how did she want to do it? She did not have any experience, while Zhuo Qing was trying to remember and compare the classical television soap opera, she walked to the front of Lou Xi Yan’s small bed. Her hair was a little bit messy, bowing her head to look at her own clothing, she clenched her teeth, Zhuo Qing removed the most outer light muslin garment of hers and threw it on the ground, there was only a thin clothing on her body now. If she took it off again, then the only thing left was her undergarment that covered her chest and abdomen…… Deeply breathing, Zhuo Qing with a soft voice, called out: “Xi Yan……”

“En?” Lightly humphing, Lou Xi Yan did not turn around to see Zhuo Qing who was behind him.

Zhuo Qing persisted and charmingly called out: “Xi Yan~~”

Finally, Lou Xi Yan helplessly turned around, he just heard a rustling noise of a person behind him just a moment ago, he suspected that this girl surely was setting up some crafty plot, who knew that once he turned around, he only saw Zhuo Qing who was barely wearing a thin clothing. The moonlight shined upon her, under the enchanting candle flame, her curvy figure was exposed completely, a water fall like hair was slightly messy behind her, following a lightly night wind that was floating, fine black hair and twining moonlight. Lou Xi Yan breathed and trembled in fear, she was still opening her pair of bright eyes, looking at him with fixed eyes, sparkling and attracting the rays of light.

Lou Xi Yan unconsciously swallowed his saliva, sorrowfully sighed and said: “Qing-er….. do not look at me like this.” She really should not imagine that his self control was so good!!

The result seemed to be good, Zhuo Qing smirked, continued to murmur and say: “Yan~~”

Darn it, she called out and his bone got soften quickly, Lou Xi Yan’s expression was dark, his low voice sounded like it was somewhat hoarse: “Qing-er, you are playing with fire.”

What she wanted was exactly this result, it seemed that seducing someone was not really that difficult, using her body to press closer fearlessly to Lou Xi Yan, her hand was going up to his neck.

“Xi……” Zhuo Qing’s words had not finished yet, she only felt like the sky span and the earth turned around, she was already taken advantage by Lou Xi Yan. Both of them went backward on the couch, Lou Xi Yan’s hand was already on her waist, the palm that was always slightly cool was unexpectedly and astonishingly scalding, through the thin clothing material, the heat passed over without reservation.

Lou Xi Yan’s long and narrow eyes softly squinted, with blurry charm, their bodies were tightly sticking, Zhuo Qing could feel that his heart was palpitating really quick. The scorching body temperature made Zhuo Qing’s face gradually blushed.

She had not thought yet, what she wanted to do next, her lips felt numb, Lou Xi Yan’s strong kiss was in her lips, the scorching temperature along with his breath attacked. Zhuo Qing was slightly shivering, Lou Xi Yan was holding her tighter, his kiss was gentle and soft in the past, but it was clearly infected with lush and exceptionally passionate now.

Lightly kissing all the way across her neck, he then arrived at the back of the ear, nibbling Zhuo Qing’s ear, his low voice as if it was a mellow spirit, intoxicating and puzzling sound echoed: “I want you.”

The warm breath, the numb and low mumble in repetitions, made Zhuo Qing unable to help herself and shudder once again, she did not speak, her bright wrist moved up to Lou Xi Yan’s neck, made herself to join deeper in his bosom.

Lou Xi Yan was encouraged, the fiery burning tongue went deeper and deeper, his hand dug into her clothing……

“Prime Minister Lou! Prime Minister Lou!!”

Along with an ill sound of the knocking on the door echoed astonishingly, the two of them were startled, Lou Xi Yan was reluctant to part with the soft and slender waistline that he was holding with his hand. Pulling the side of the silk quilt to cover Zhuo Qing’s body, striving to suppress his hysterical and restless breathing, Lou Xi Yan coldly groaned and said: “Who is it?”

The sound of a woman who was sobbing outside the door came through: “This servant, Xiao Lian, the Princess, she……”

Lou Xi Yan’s mind was startled, urgently said: “How is the Princess?” She would not do something foolish, right!

“The Princess has a nightmare, she has waken up being scared, does not speak all along and is only shedding tears. The Princess’s health is weak, and unable to withstand this sleepless night like this, if by any chance there is an unexpected misfortune, even if this slave dies ten thousand times, she can not afford it either ah, Prime Minister Lou, please come over to take a look, ok.”

She urgently and pressingly came over and wailed accusingly because her family Princess had a nightmare?? Zhuo Qing suddenly gave a supercilious look, even though Lou Xi Yan did not say anything, his complexion was somewhat dark.

“Mo Bai.” Lou Xi Yan lowly called out, but he did not hear any response, so he called out again: “Mo Bai.”

“Yes.” Finally, Mo Bai’s cold voice came through from the outside of the door.

He was outside the door listening to some noises a moment ago, so he walked to the gate of the courtyard to guard, and forgot that Zhai Xing pavilion was connected with Lan Yue building!

Lou Xi Yan said with a cold voice: “Announce the Imperial physician.”


Mo Bai left, the woman was still pestering outside the door, Lou Xi Yan impatiently said: “You return first to look after the Princess, ok.”

Xiao Lian did not have any opportunity to see Lou Xi Yan’s angry face, so she was still not afraid to continue to be long winded: “Prime Minister Lou, will you not go? The Princess is calling out your name all along, if she takes things too hard again……”

“Get lost! Benxiang (again a third party saying for I, usually for an official to a servant) has already made the arrangement, when is it your turn to question my decision?!”

Xiao Lian who was outside the door was terribly frightened, nervously answered: “This servant asks to be excused.” She ran away to leave Lan Yue building all the way.

Zhuo Qing stared blankly, this was the first time he heard Xi Yan speaking like this, the handsome face because of lust was still somewhat flushed. The always evoking corner of his mouth seemed to freeze now, coldly and lightly pursed up lips, that gentle and soft eyes did not have the previous calm anymore, they were full of restlessness. Zhuo Qing broke into laughter, was this the so called the look of dissatisfied desire?!

Zhuo Qing did not know whether or not Yan Ru Xuan was deliberate, if she was, it was indeed timely…… Sitting straightforwardly from behind to hold Lou Xi Yan’s waist, Zhuo Qing said in a low voice: “Wait until the Imperial Physician comes, then you go to take a look, ok, just in case she tries to kill herself again, you will be in trouble.”

It was not because she was generous, it was actually because the other person’s noble identity, she did not want Lou Xi Yan to get into trouble because of this.

Lou Xi Yan turned around, his face was still dark but his mood was very soft, helping her to lie down and putting the quilt to cover her, he said: “You sleep first, ok, I will come back really quickly.”

Zhuo Qing helplessly nodded her head.

“Hold on!” Lou Xi Yan just got up, Zhuo Qing suddenly sat up and pulled his hand to bring him down. Lou Xi Yan did not understand, but still conveniently sat down.

Zhuo Qing’s hands embraced his neck, bended forward and threw herself in his bosom.

Her lips was kissing his neck…… Biting him.

Lou Xi Yan melancholy groaned, the fragrant, soft and lovable’s body was still in his bosom, a moment afterwards, Zhuo Qing sat up. She was satisfied to see Lou Xi Yan’s neck that was covered by several conspicuous small marks from her kisses, her mood was rather good when she released her hands, then she waved towards Lou Xi Yan and said: “Very well, you can go.”

From the beginning, he did not have any reaction, but when he looked at her crafty face, Lou Xi Yan already guessed what she was doing, lovingly shaking his head, Lou Xi Yan left Lan Yue building.

This girl, he still needed to attend the Imperial court tomorrow morning……

Zhuo Qing was paralyzed on the bed, watching attentively at the light muslin curtain, Zhuo Qing was depressed, her first time trying to seduce unexpectedly failed! Although the main cause was not because of her, but she still blame her ‘business was not cooked’ (unfamiliar business as a saying that she’s not familiar with this art of seduction)…… Next time, she would do a good preparation, it would surely make him wild and spurt nose bleeding, and he would not care even if the sky collapsed! Otherwise, she would let down of Qing Ling’s 34D size!!


Lou Xi Yan had not gone to Zhai Xing pavilion yet, he rather went there with the Imperial physician. Outside the door, once he arrived, he paid respect and said: “Chen pays respect to the Princess.”

Once hearing Lou Xi Yan’s voice, Yan Ru Xuan who was originally lying on the bed and shedding her tears, immediately sat up, urgently said; “Yan Gege…… Come in quickly.” He really came, this was a proof that he was still concerned about her!!

Inside the room, there were several candles on the table, the light ray was somewhat dusky, Lou Xi Yan and the Imperial physician entered the inside of the room. Lou Xi Yan only stood at the outside of the screen, and said towards the Imperial physician: “Take the Princess’ pulse.”

The Imperial physician bowed towards Lou Xi Yan to perform a courtesy, then went inside.

After the light muslin drapery was opened, there was a disappointed face, Yan Gege did not come in.

“Princess, Chen will offend.”

Yan Ru Xuan expressionlessly extended her hand, the Imperial physician examined it for a good moment, then slowly got up.

Lou Xi Yan who was outside the screen, asked: “How is it?”

The Imperial physician withdrew all the way to the outside screen, then answered: “The Princess’ blood and vital breath were insufficient, she was too anxious and worried, emotional issue, that was the reason she would have nightmare. Prime Minister Lou does not need to worry, Lao Chen will treat the Princess with some medicine, and meditation to nurse her health, then her health will recuperate slowly.”

“You go and boil the medicine, ok.” Lou Xi Yan finally felt relieved, when he saw her thin and week’s appearance this morning, he was worried for her.

“Yes.” The Imperial physician went out, there was only Xiao Lian inside the room, only him and Yan Ru Xuan, Lou Xi Yan slightly bowed from outside the screen, and said: “The time is not early anymore, Princess should rest early, Chen asks to be excused.”

His speaking tone was just left, then he heard a low call out: “Yan Gege….. do not go!”

The white silk silhouette hurriedly lifted open the curtain covering veil, not wearing any shoe, she stumbled to run to him all the way.

Her health was originally weak, plus her heart was worried, she almost ran to Lou Xi Yan’s front, Yan Ru Xuan’s feet were soft, and she almost fell down. Lou Xi Yan did not have any choice but to support her arms, and steady her body: “Be careful, Princess.”

Waiting until she stood firmly, Lou Xi Yan was just about to withdraw his hands, but Yan Ru Xuan grabbed his hands tightly.

Originally, she had a small face, she became thin now, and her face was not as big as a palm, her crying eyes were completely red bloodshot. Yan Ru Xuan’s heart was filled with affection and watching him, but unexpectedly she discovered some distinct red marks on his neck……

Yan Ru Xuan’s heart was in pain, she knew these red marks, she had seen these marks on her Imperial sister in law (the Empress) and the other Imperial concubines. Her Imperial sister in law told her at that time, after the Imperial sister in law finished speaking, she also felt very embarrassed. But the Imperial sister in law said that these marks were left on a woman by a man, why did Yan Gege’s neck also have these marks? Thinking about that woman who was living together with Yan Gege, also her hateful manner in the afternoon, Yan Ru Xuan unconsciously and lightly bit her lips, that bad woman was not good enough for Yan Gege!!

Taking a deep breath, Yan Ru Xuan summoned her courage and said: “Xuan-er is really afraid, Yan Gege stays to accompany me, all right?”

Chapter 76: Between Laughters and Tears

Chapter 78: Shattered Love

Sian’s notes:
Boy oh boy…. I didn’t expect ZQ would do this. Hahahaha… I suppose that I shouldn’t be too surprised either. After all, the author implied that ZQ always has ‘yellow thought’ all the time. It was pretty embarrassing doing this translation. Thank goodness, the detail wasn’t too bad because the ‘action’ was interrupted. ☺️☺️☺️ I hope that I don’t have to do anymore translation on this ‘yellow’ action in the future. 😉😉😉 Plus ZQ was intentionally leaving the marks on LXY’s necks for YRX to see!!! Priceless!!! 😍😍😍

LXY, if you say yes, I’m going to smack you. But I’m guessing that you will say a definite “NO.” This naive or stupid girl needs to learn that just because someone is caring about her, it doesn’t mean that person actually likes her. 😡😡😡 YRX is getting on my nerves at this point!!!

Too bad, YRX!!! Even if you think that ZQ isn’t good enough for your Yan Gege, but your Yan Gege definitely thinks that she’s perfect for him. Your opinion doesn’t count!!!

  1. Haha thanks for the chapter! And here I thought that ZQ was going to close the deal with LXY! I wonder if her second tentative will be the good one!
    Can’t wait! do you know Sian if this will happen soon?

    • Not sure… I had translated until ch 88 and those chapters didn’t make me blush… ☺️☺️☺️ My guess is probably not… but we shall see.


  2. Qing is simply hilarious, LOL. At last, Xiao Yan Yan realizes she’s not as pure as he thought…and him shaking his head lovingly after she marked him implies he’s happy about it!

    You’d think after seeing a man from Ancient China allowing a woman to do that to his neck, Ru Xuan would know she’s no match for Qing…but she’s incurably stupid! It’s actually ironic though. She’s trying so hard to earn his affection, but the harder she tries it gets worse. By interrupting him, he’s probably fed up with her already. It must not be too long until it finally reaches point that is “the last straw”.

    I say Xi Yan should attend court like that and let everyone see his neck. That would be funny. Just imagine Hong Tian’s ugly face when he sees. Mwahahahaha! (I still don’t like him…although I don’t hate him as much as I did at the beginning. He’s getting better too slowly, and yet to fully make up for everything to Feng…)

  3. Thank you for the chapter. I never thought that The cool Zhuo Qing can be so funny.. and in that way.. priceless.. really priceless..😆😆😆 especially when Zhuo Qing was laughing when she saw the unusual expression in Lou Xi Yan’s face.. So, this is the so called look of disatisfied desire? hahaha😁😁😁 and yes, Zhuo Qing is pretty couragious to give Lou Xi Yan some kiss marks and deliberately let them be seen by other people. She’s so dominant and lucky because the other guy is our lovely gentle cunning foxy Yan😉😙😜hehehhe
    great! this chapter is very great.. very amusing! even though the act was disturbed it still makes me smiles widely, and laugh out loud😆😁
    but our spoiled princess was still not giving up.. humph!😑😕
    by the way, I wonder if Qing Feng do what Zhuo Qing did to Yan Hong Tian.. what will be his reaction?😛 I don’t suppose he will be interested in some dominant women though.. the fact is he was already very arrogant and dominating..😧

    • I don’t think that YHT likes domineering woman but he likes feisty woman and QF is very feisty. That’s why he ends up falling in love with her when he’s trying to “tame” QF.

  4. Also.. I just realized the ambiguous title of this chapter.. (Minor Incident That Sparked A War) the title seems to tell us that there will be a bad consequence (a war!😲) for some incidents that happen.. and when I relate it with the content.. l just..😂😂😂

      • The ‘war’ won’t officially start until ch 80 or 81 and sorts of end in ch 83-84 (once the evil woman fails to succeed on her plan) however the ‘war’ will still continue on, she just switched & made another evil plan to get rid of another person. I’m guessing the ‘war’ will continue on until that evil WED is being banished from the palace. That’s when we all can rejoice and a certain couple can finish cooking the rice. Hahahaha… 💃💃💃

      • thank you for the reply😊
        so, the war will start soon..😯😐😓 oh no.. but from what you said there’s a clue that eventually the West Empress Dowager will be banished from the palace.. how is it done? who will do it? maybe the emperor? hmm.. the thought of banishment of his own mother is cruel I think.. but if certain villainess won’t give up and continue to do evil deeds.. maybe banishment is needed.. as long as it’s not an exile from the country.. just prohibited to enter the palace or have any relations with palace business like.. that will be enough..😌ok, now I’ll just looking forward to the chapter where our main hero and heroine will finally have their happy ending.. and maybe.. just like you said.. continue the uncooked rice act😍😜😘 😄😄😄

      • I think she’s definitely deserved to be banished. When I said banished, I think YHT will just force her to retire & she has to stay in the temple or somewhere else and she can’t meddle with any political affair anymore. The woman doesn’t know how to stop until she gets what she wants. I think she’s a very evil woman. I suppose the typical evil woman who usually likes to plot evil things in the harem.

      • hmm.. yes. I hope Yan Ru Xuan won’t become like her though.. It will be so sad if it’s happen..😦😐 but if the empress is Qing Feng I am sure she won’t plot any evil plans.. she’s too considerate and kind to do things like that..☺😊

      • About QF. But I wonder though if QF is actually too considerate and kind to be an Empress. After all, an Empress has to be able to control the harem.

      • Is that from the to be a virtuous wife novel? The emperor’s name is he heng? If that’s the same Empress, I love that novel very much… One of my favorite also. She’s the perfect character for an Empress. Smart, witty, doesn’t bully anybody but will bite you if you mess around with her. Love her…

  5. I have a feeling that stupid princess is going to return to her palace very soon (a place she shouldn’t have left in the first place)
    Yan Ru Xuan reminds me of another annoying character, maybe that’s why I dislike this princess so much. Do you remember the story of Candy, Terry and Susanna? ring a bell? I still can’t get over that.
    Fortunately this is a chinese story.

      • Candy candy is an old anime (1975) but I saw it in 2000 when I was a little. It tells the story about an unlucky orphan mary-sue-girl who faced lots of tragedy in the love field (her first love died, her second love went with another girl, etc.) Really, that’s not a thing a little girl should see. In the end she was alone and single. Fin.
        Yeah, that sucks, but I didn’t know it would turn like that. How I wished someone gave some spoilers to me. How much frustration could be avoided. How would you describe your feelings when you read Qing Feng spoilers? . Not that I know what happens to her, but since it smells like tragedy I will run away as far as I can from QF’s story.
        Thanks for reading my catharsis.
        Go Sian!

      • I don’t think QF’s story is as tragic as the Candy candy’s story. To tell you the truth, I cried when Din2 told me about QF’s spoiler. I was so upset for two days. But then after I calmed down, I totally understood what the author was trying to do and considering the whole relationship that she had with YHT at that particular time, it would probably good for the both of them to actually encounter the heart breaking moment as that moment would be the start of their beautiful relationship in the future. Yes, it really sucked that QF had to suffer that much but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. As I suggest the other readers, you should still read QF’s story but wait until Zazajunie finishes the entire novel. Din2 is waiting until the translator finishes the novel either as she doesn’t really like palace politic plot (and neither do I), but I still read it for QF. Most readers read QF’s story for the sole purpose of supporting QF.


  6. Thanks for the chapter. ZQ is so crafty. Leaving marks to Mr Fox’s neck to send a message to the irritating princess. I wonder when the Princess will give up. Really getting on my nerves.

  7. Novels should have something like a «label tags with spoilers». So you can know what you are about to read and prepare mentally (ex: death of loved one, rape, terminal illness, memory loss, cheating, etc). Some have those tags but not enough.
    So, if you like (or have the guts) to read or watch tragic love stories, you can at least know what kind of tragedy you are going to read/watch. Of course I’m not talking about Gu Yun or Zhuo Qing strories (thank God it is tragedy-free), but I’m saying this, because I mistakenly watched Stairway to heaven (korean novel) and Koizora (japanese movie) with almost no info because I didn’t want any spoilers back then… but that was a big mistake, no, a Colossal mistake. WTF did I watch?. Now the sour taste is left. Never again! If it is a novel with tragedy or hinted towards tragedy I stop myself immediately. Totally understand the feeling.
    Thanks Sian for your time to translate this wonderful novel.

    • That’s very true. Most of the time, I stay away from sad ending novels. Life is already stressful enough, why add it with a sad ending novel. hehehe… But I did read Tong Hua’s novel, Once Promised and knew that it would be a sad ending. It was too hard but I couldn’t stop reading it. The story was beautiful and considering the whole plots, it was a very appropriate ending. The same thing with the drama, Nirvana in Fire, it was a sad ending but a very good and appropriate ending, even though I was crying towards the end but it was a very satisfying ending. But in those both cases, I knew what I was going into, I just couldn’t stop reading Once Promised or watch Nirvana in Fire. Thank goodness, ZQ’s story doesn’t have any tragedy, but in the future chapters, there would be another murder plot that might be a little unsettling so maybe I should warn the readers before I post that chapter.


  8. You re-reading this made me realize 2 things: 1 – if ZQ’s boobs is that big than it makes sense her sisters boobs similarly that big, at least a very full B cup; 2 – that princess is truly sad. She leads a luxurious life but she’s very empty inside. She constantly needs someone to validate her existence.

    • Point #1, I’m not sure if your theory is right or wrong, assuming that since ZQ’s boob is big, that means that her other two sisters’ boobs should also big. In my memory, I don’t think both QF & QM aka GY have big boobs. 😜😜 I do know someone who says that her daughter’s boobs are way bigger than hers (which is true) so my friend’s wondering how her daughter gets big boobs. And her daughter is skinny too…
      I agree with point #2.

  9. I wasted half an hour screaming and rolling around my room when reading each paragraph in this chapter. When it was already to the point that I wasted another 20 min of screaming and doing crazy stuff after reading another paragraph where LXY started to lose control my hand unconsciously swiped all the way to the comment section as If it was alive and sure enough my eyes saw the first person who commented, Dark Jackel say nothing happened I cried and regretted wasting my time fangirling so I reread everything from the start and soon quickly forgot the comment and thus the fangirling happened. When I pass the part where he took advantage of ZQ and was on top of her I was elated and felt like I was on drugs and when I got to the part where the f*cking maid interrupted my mouth immediately curse before I notice it and threw the pillow on top of me which brought me back to reality. *sigh* I already knew nothing would happen but I really can’t help but resent this chapter by making me feel like I went from heaven to hell in one second. >//~//<

    Tyvm for the chap
