VGAFH 34

AKA. Chapter 33 on QI - The Stranger
After Lian Ze hearing what Lian Xiao Man said, he couldn't help agree. And said to Lian Fang Zhou: "Sister, how about letting Third Aunt come with us? It's better to have her with us."
    The way Lian Ze think is simple. Since he and Sister are still young and it's the first time heading to town, what could be done when they get tricked? Third Aunt is an adult and when the other party sees an adult is present, they might reconsider, right?
    The more important thing is, he suddenly finds out that Third Aunt isn't as loathsome as before. However, he still doesn't like her.
    "That's right! What Ah Ze said is right! With me, you won't be on the losing end!" Lian Xiao Man was delighted. She slapped her thigh and not allowing any more room for discussion, said: "It's decided like this. Now let's sleep earlier, so we can go earlier tomorrow."
    Without any choice, Lian Fang Zhou nodded: "Alright then. However, Third Aunt, I must say this beforehand. In front of others, you cannot interrupt me when I'm talking. Wait until I finish, then you can speak. Also not allowed to undermine me and the family head is still me!"
    "I know, I know! Why would I undermine you? We're all one family..." Third Aunt chattered as she returns to her room.
    The next day, early in the morning, the three of them left. Lian Fang Qing and Lian Che also woke up to send them off. Despite being half awake, Lian Fang Qing didn't forget to remind Sister and Brother to bring back yummy snacks.
    Yesterday, Uncle Wang gave them some simple pointers on driving the donkey cart. The donkey was also docile. So Lian Fang Zhou sat at the front driving the cart and Lian Ze and Third Aunt sat at the back.
    Third Aunt talked non-stop during the whole journey. She excitedly jibbered jabber, while Lian Ze answered occasionally. Lian Fang Zhou also found her to be too noisy, so might as well concentrate on driving and pretend to not hear anything--- isn't it just going to town? Look how excited she is!
    Everything went very smoothly. With just the two big and perfect Reishi Mushroom, they earned ten silver liang. But Third Aunt and Lian Ze don't know about this matter. Lian Fang Zhou had hidden it in a cloth when carrying it and then found some excuse to go to the medicinal shop to sell it.
    She needed to leave some money for emergencies. It's fine with Lian Ze, but definitely can't let Third Aunt know.
    Three full bags and a half of mushrooms were sold to a restaurant for nearly four liang. Third Aunt was ecstatic as if that money were hers. Her face was smiling like a blooming flower. While her hands were rubbing non-stop and she laughed happily: "Can't believe this! Really can't believe this!"
    Although Lian Ze's reaction wasn't as exaggerated as Third Aunt, he was also extremely overjoyed. Eyes lighting up as he smiled at Lian Fang Zhou.
    "Fang Zhou, it's better to let me hold the money, in case you lose it!" Third Aunt's heart was itching as she couldn't suppress saying.
    It'll be strange if Lian Fang Zhou agree. So with an indifference smile, she said: "No need to trouble Third Aunt. It'll be more convenient for me to hold it, as there are lots of things I need to buy in a while."
    Third Aunt still had something to say, but Lian Ze spoke out first: "Third Aunt, Sister, we should quickly go buy things, that way we return earlier! The winter sun sets earlier and it'll be cold on the way back if we're late."
    "Indeed, we better hurry then!" Lian Fang Zhou grinned.
    Without any choice, Third Aunt could only let it go.
    The three of them soon bought everything like bolts of cloth, needles, threads, rugs, blankets, quilts, seasonings, flour as well as other small bits and pieces.
    Lian Fang Zhou also went to few blacksmiths to look around the cost of making farming tools. It's about time to change the farm tools at home. She also checked out the prices of the Four Treasures of Study [1]. Afterwards, she enquired about the prices of the vegetables, fruits, and meats in the market-- things that she didn't know but needed to know.
    When passing by the makeup and hair accessories stall, she bought 2 hair scarves and 3 silky velvet flower pins. The hair scarves are for herself, while one of the flower pins are for Lian Fang Qing and other two are for Mrs. Zhao and Li Juan.
    But Third Aunt thought it was for her and the Lian sisters, so her heart was bursting with delight. Even put out her hand and said: "I keep my own one, so it doesn't get ruined."
    Lian Fang Zhou stared blankly: Aren't widows not allowed to wear red and green? And also bright flower hair accessories?
    And also, when did I ever say there's her share? And already so old...
    Seeing Lian Fang Zhou staring at her blankly, Third Aunt look at the flower and started laughing. And said: "Look at you. I'm already at this age and you bought such bright color. How could I wear it! I'll change it to something simple!"
    After saying that, she started to look at the stall and selected a willow green one. She placed it on her hair bun to size it up. Then asked the stall owner does it look good?
    Of course, he would grin and say it look good. 
    Third Aunt then turned toward Lian Fang Zhou: "I'll take this one then! So return that one!"
    Lian Fang Zhou smiled but did return the one in her hand. And also didn't say another word to Third Aunt. Just pay for another one and left.
    However Third Aunt was immersed in her inner happiness, so she didn't notice.
    "Let's eat something now. In a while, we're going back!" Lian Fang Zhou said after seeing a kinda of clean noodle shop by the roadside.
    "Alright, alright! I'm already starving!" said Third Aunt. She entered the shop first.
    "Sister, actually we could just buy few mantou nearby. We each get a bowl of soup is enough..." Lian Ze spoke out.
    Such understanding words made people heartache. Lian Fang Zhou gave a slight smile. As she pulled Lian Ze in, she said: "Having one bowl of noodle doesn't cost much, Sister know what to do!"
    The siblings just sat down, when Third Aunt said: "I just ordered a braised pork noodle. What do you guys want?"
    Lian Ze wanted to get a vegetarian noodle but Lian Fang Zhou stopped him and ordered two bowls of braised pork noodle as well.
    Today was Market day, so the streets were crowded and very chaotic. This little shop was also packed with people, which comes with problems. It was really lively.
    A horse carriage just passed by the entrance. But because there were so many people, the horse carriage moved really slow. The driver would keep yelling out "Make way! Please make way!" His tone was very polite, not one bit irritated or overbearing. So Lian Fang Zhou couldn't help but watch some more.
    Right about then, the waiter brought over the noodles. He saw the situation and grinned: "That's Grand Tutor Ding Family carriage. Have to say that Grand Tutor Ding is really a good person. He was the king's teacher but doesn't put on air. Also the manor's servants are very polite, never domineering.
    "Grand Tutor Ding?" Lian Fang Zhou grinned: "Our County Yu actually produced such a big official!"
    "That's right!" the waiter nodded and continued: " Sadly, he's retired!"
    Then he hurried back to work.
    Third Aunt stretched her head toward the horse carriage to catch a look. But immediately took back her gaze with disinterest, mouth twitching: "Afraid there's not much to that tutor's home. Their horse looks so old. It's worst than our villager Li Yuan's maternal family one! What are you looking at brat? Hurry out eat or else it'll be cold!"
    Seeing Lian Ze's eyes fixed on the outside, Third Aunt grinned as she patted his shoulder.
    "I wasn't looking..." Lian Ze took back his gaze and continued eating.
    Lian Fang Zhou followed his line of gaze and paused. Lian Ze certainly wasn't looking at Grand Tutor Ding's family carriage, but instead a man sitting at an angle on the opposite street.

VGAFH 33

It's 32 on QI.
First chap after a long while, so apologies to you guys for being sooo late. Had some family situations and a tiny tiny bit of procrastination.
I just threw this chap to Grammarly and probably the future chaps too. So I'll apologize to grammar frantic now for my lack of editing talent. Sorry, guys.

33.Who enter the town. who stay at home.

 Lian Fang Zhou didn't move. Lian Ze lowered his head with an indifferent face, pretending he didn't hear anything. He couldn't help lift his complaining eyes to look at his sister: Sister is really muddled-headed, why did you take the initiative to bring back this trouble.
 Lian Fang Zhou sneered inwardly, but not one bit was obvious on her face, treating as if Lian Xiao Man didn't say anything at all. She picked up her chopsticks without a care, then grinned toward her siblings: "It'll be cold in a moment, so quickly eat it while it's hot."
 Only then did she smiled toward Lian Xiao Man. In a steady tone, she said: "Third Aunt, this is what our family has always been eating, so made Third Aunt suffer. Anyhow Third Aunt you could endure today, then tomorrow, how about Lian Ze and I send you back?"
    Lian Xiao Man's expression changed, face slightly sunk: "What are you saying? Driving me away?"
 Her eyes turned, mouth just opened to start crying "Aiya---", when Lian Fang Zhou coldly called out "Third Aunt!" Making her(Xiao Man) stop suddenly.
 Lian Xiao Man was never someone with little courage/guts. But don't know why, Lian Fang Zhou at this time, make her a bit scared for some reason.
 "I am an elder!" Lian Xiao Man strengthened herself and she bolstered her courage as she coldly harrumphed.
 "I didn't say you weren't," Lian Fang Zhou blandly said: "I also didn't say driving you out, but you are a married off aunt, your husband's family is your home. You won't deny this, right? Since you aren't used to my house's food, so is there something to pick at when I say sending you back? You, an elder, need us, younger generations to take care of you, hmph, still have the heart to be picky! I will ask your husband's family, can it be that they the Tian Family doesn't feed their own daughter-in-law, forcing the daughter-in-law to return to the maternal family to rely on still kids nephew and nieces to be taken care of?"   
 "You--" Lian Xiao Man's face paled, didn't dare say anything anymore.
 If she was staying at Lian Li's home, taking care of her for a while is reasonable, since Lian Li is her brother. Even if taking her over to in-law family to talk, it's both side's arguments, just seeing whose mouth is better at talking.
 But now she's staying at Lian Fang Zhou's, then everything's different.
 If Tian Family let their own daughter-in-law return to maternal home to eat parentless nephew's and niece's, then Tian Family's back(reputation) will definitely be broken by someone! This reputation would be ruined.
 In order to avoid getting back breaking, Tian Family will force her to return, and after returning--
 Lian Xiao Man was startled as well as afraid, for a while her anger dissipated
 "Fang Zhou, Great Aunt said the wrong thing, don't be angry!" Lian Xiao Man hurriedly put on a smiling face, apologetically smiled: "I won't say it anymore! I'll stay together with you, and can help with managing the household!" 
 Help them manage the household? Lian Fang Zhou nearly laughed!
 She doesn't what kind of person her own deceased father was like, would it be like Big Uncle and Third Aunt? Considering these two were deserved to be called siblings.
 "If Third Aunt wants to stay, then stay. As to managing the household, no need to trouble Third Aunt! Our family has me as the family head!" Lian Fang Zhou bluntly refused.
 "You're a child, what would you know! Unless you don't trust Third Aunt?" Lian Xiao Man was the kind that wouldn't turn around after hitting a wall unless she lost half her life then she'll turn around.
 Lian Fang Zhou thought can I even trust you?
 Of course, she can't say this out loud, she glossed over it: "In the end, Third Aunt doesn't count as our family member anymore, sooner or later will have to return! So don't need to be this problematic! If Third Aunt doesn't feel satisfied or unhappy, you could leave tomorrow!"
 "No, no!" Lian Xiao Man's face changed when leaving was mentioned. She quickly begged: "Fang Zhou, everyone in that house hate me to death and torment me. I can't go back there! You also saw how your Uncle and Aunt treat me like a foe. They won't give me justice and say some fair words. I have no husband or maternal family to count on. Going back means sending myself to death! I, I won't mention about the matter of being the family head, alright? Fang Zhou, you can't drive me out!" 
 Hearing her say it that tragically, Lian Fang Zhou couldn't help have some pity. She(Xiao Man) as a person is really detestable, can see that her mouth is fierce, and have some presumptuous cleverness(smart in petty tricks), deep down she's not a bad person--- also need what it takes to be bad.
 Just like she said, driving her out is sending her to death. Thinking about it, her days weren't good, even though it wasn't as severe as she said it was. And there's nothing bad having one elder in the house.
 Another thing, one sentence Mrs. Qiao said right, there's enough food to eat now. And having her (Xiao Man) look after the two little ones, she herself can free up more effort to focus on other matters.
 Lian Fang Zhou has already made up her mind, but still with an expressionless face, said: "As long as you don't cause trouble, you can stay Third Aunt. What we eat, is what you eat, anyway, we won't treat you bad. But you also have to do some housework. If you're willing, then stay. If not, tomorrow, we'll send you back!"
 Lian Xiao Man felt a burst of vexation, and thought, aren't you telling me to stay as an old maid? She wanted to disagree in a fit of pique, but also afraid that Lian Fang Zhou would really send her back tomorrow. When thinking about her husband's family situation, she weighed up the two side and she finally reluctantly nodded in agreement.
The two smaller ones were young and ingenuous, didn't understand what's going on, however, Lian Ze was relieved.
 "Then that's fine!" Lain Fang Zhou also slightly smiled, and said: "Quickly eat, if not it'll be cold!"
 Lian Xiao Man didn't dare be picky again and started eating with them.
 At night, when going to bed, the sisters and Lian Xiao Man shared one room. Luckily the original partition wasn't taken down, so Lian Xiao Man slept in the inner one and the two sisters slept in the outer.
 Lian Xiao Man quietly mumbled: "This house is a bit small. It would be better to build a bigger one!"
 Just finished speaking, Lian Fang Zhou glanced over. She then shut up.
 The second day, starting from the morning, Lian Fang Zhou didn't let Lian Xiao Man be idle. Made her help with meals, washing the clothes, tidy up the room and rest. Lian Xiao Man dare not butt head with her (Fang Zhou), so could only stomach her anger.
 From time to time, she deeply sighed and sulkily hammered her waist, pretending to be tired. Lian Fang Zhou just act as if she didn't see and ignore her. Lian Xiao Man was pissed, however, couldn't do anything to Lian Fang Zhou and only honestly endure.
 The mushrooms were already sun-dried, so Lian Fang Zhou planned to go to the market the next day. Since the road is really long and there's  a lot that needed to be brought, Lian Fang Zhou spent 15 coppers to rent a donkey cart from Uncle Wang in the village.
 Hearing about going into county town tomorrow, Lian Fang Qing was so excited and wanted to go. However Lian Che sensibly held her back: "Fourth Sister, it's better that we wait for Sister and Second Brother at home. Don't go with them. Sister and Second Brother is going to work!"
 How would Lian Fang Qing be willing to listen? She shook her head: "Don't want to! I want to go, I could also help Sister and Second Brother with work!"
 Lian Xiao Man gasped and said: "We're working, so where would we have time to take care of you! Third Aunt is telling you, in town, there are loads of kidnappers who purposely kidnap children. Being kidnapped by thorough kidnappers, you'll be sold to a wealthy family as a maid and never see your brothers and sister again!"
 Lian Fang Qing was frightened, she was really somewhat afraid. She looked toward Lian Fang Zhou.
 She was skeptical of Third Aunt's words, but she believed her own sister's.
 Lian Fang Zhou wasn't willing to lie to her-- the younger siblings trust her that much, so she doesn't want to lose their trust.
 She gently rubbed Lian Fang Qing's head, softly said: "Although it's not as terrible as Third Aunt said, there are kidnappers. You be good and stay at home, I'll buy yummy food to bring back for you to eat, alright? Wait until when we're free, I'll take you there!"
 "Sister, you and Second Brother come back soon, we'll stay at home, don't worry!" Not waiting for Lian Fang Qing to speak, Lian Che quickly spoke out.
 Lian Fang Qing pouted, but didn't continue to pester, only reminded Lian Fang Zhou: "Sister don't forget to buy us yummy food!"
 "Alright, I remembered!" Lian Fang Zhou smiled, then grinned toward Lian Xiao Man: "Third Aunt, tomorrow I'll trouble to watch over Qing er and Che er at home!"
 "What?" Lian Xiao Man paused, then quickly said: "I stay back? Naturally, I should go with you to town! Since I'm an adult and a lot of matters you children won't understand ah. Like when buying things, get tricked! Is there any need to watch over Qing er and  Che er? They grew up here and no longer little toddlers!"

VGAFH 32

I was discussing with Qidian for the last several days. In the end, VGAFH will move to Qidian International. And I will drop GEWW for another translator from Qidian to do. This way I will be completely devoted to VGAFH. Yippeee more VGAFH chappies for you! And more slaving away for me. Probably get this discussion's loose end tidied up within the next several days and start working 5 a week.

32 Ugly words said beforehand

Translated by Maggie   Edited By Yi Yue

Because everyone never thought Lian Fang Zhou, a skinny weak little girl would have such courage and charisma, for a moment everyone couldn't react.

"Aunt (Mrs Qiao), Third Aunt (Xiao Man), don't argue, if you keep arguing like this until sunrise, there won't be any good result, besides the throat being sore and hoarse. We're all one family, what is the point! Third Aunt, let's go!"

Lian Fang Zhou deeply breathed in and calmly spoke.

"Need you--" Mrs Qiao rolled her eyes at Lian Fang Zhou, in midst of saying ‘Need you to so nosy,” Lian Li glared at her, so she suddenly regained her wits, hurriedly shut up and changed to a heavy harrumph. Lian Xiao Man also gave a deadly look at her, quiet cold laugh-- that was a really cold laugh, it made people's body feel a slight shiver.

"What Fang Zhou said is right, everyone disperse now!" Lian Li loudly called out.
Lian Fang Zhou silently curled her lips in disdain; some people really don't know how thick their skin is (means shameless), he still have the guts to open his mouth. At this time, everyone regained their wits, and one after another start discussing. However the content of discussion changed: Lian Family's girl, ‘how great she is!’. One after another, everyone dispersed.
Mrs Qiao was angered with Lian Fang Zhou -- She is set on believing that Lian Fang Zhou purposely waited until she (Mrs Qiao), her husband (Lian Li) and Lian Xiao Man fight til no reconciliation point can happen and then came over, purposely letting them make a fool of themselves and show her goodness.

In addition to Lian Fang Zhou's loud shout from a moment ago, clearly that shout included her, and a strange coincidence, she actually listened to her shout and stopped arguing with Lian Xiao Man, doesn't this mean she, Mrs Qiao listens to Lian Fang Zhou's words? How could that do!
Mrs Qiao directed her anger on Lian Fang Zhou (kind of like holding hatred but switch with rage).

She knows Lian Xiao Man’s nature very well, so she purposely said this words loudly "Niece Fang Zhou, you siblings have had no family head for so long, now you happen to bring back your Third Aunt, so the family finance or whatever problems crop up, you have an elder to make decisions! Or else it won't be right!"

Lian Fang Zhou was originally pondering on how to clearly state that Third Aunt is a guest in front of everyone, otherwise in future Lian Xiao Man may possibly do something where it isn't right for her to talk. Hearing Mrs Qiao's words meet her desire.

Lian Fang Zhou politely said in a loud voice: "Aunt, those words aren't reasonable! How could you corrupt Third Aunt's reputation? Third Aunt has Third Aunt's family, to run over to the maternal family to become the family’s decision maker? What are you making people think of her? How would they see Lian Family? Does that mean in future after Lian family's daughter marry out, they then run back to the maternal home to become the family head? What would that become! Third Aunt is an understanding person and absolutely won't be muddled-head like you."

Aunt Zhang has already came forward to help Lian Fang Zhou, to support Lian Xiao Man, hearing these words she also nodded her head and said:"What Fang Zhou said is reasonable! There has never been such married daughter not watching their reputations matter! Mrs (or sister-in-law) if you prefer Qiao shouldn't say that!"

Everyone also nodded, agreed, and said Mrs Qiao is in the wrong.
Especially those women with sister-in-law's (husband's sister) in the family; if in the future each family’s sister-in-law start having this intention, for no reason to run over the maternal family to boss around, who would be able to put up with it?
Mrs Qiao just sneered, but didn't answer. She knows she doesn't need to say anything because she know Lian Xiao Man's nature very clearly!
Lian Xiao Man heard Mrs Qiao's word and her heart was moved: Even in her dreams she want to become the family head once. Unfortunately, her man died, this life she, the daughter-in-law can't become an experienced old woman (experience the hardship of running the household)! Of course no longer having the chance of becoming the family head. Isn't there a good opportunity in front of eyes now? Because of Lian Fang Zhou's words, it created a slight feeling of displeasure in her heart.

She didn't let it go into her heart (means didn't take it seriously), because she didn't place any importance on the four siblings. In her opinion, since Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze obediently took the initiative to run over to collect her, then in future, whatever she said, would they disobey?

Lian Xiao Man faced the ground and spat again, coldly harrumphed: "She's just wants to drive a wedge between us. Especially because her intention are up to no good! Let's go!"

"Alright!" Lian Fang Zhou nodded her head. The two siblings, Lian Xiao Man and Aunt Zhang left together. Anyway what she wanted to say is already said. If this Third Aunt really wants to be a troublemaking moth, then don't blame her for 'changing face and not recognise her' (This phrase means forget all previous interaction and give no respect or consideration)

Once entered the yard, Third Aunt saw the repaired like new house, tidied up neatly yard and her eyes lit up, happily commented: "Not bad, not bad. This house really isn't bad!"

Lian Fang Zhou and Lian Ze stared at each other, Lian Ze's brow slightly tighten, Lian Fang Zhou signalled him not be impatient. Lain Ze didn't say anything and just cast down his eyes.

"I won't go in, still have stuff to do when I go back!" Aunt Zhang saw the situation and mentally sighed. This Lian Xiao Man really is 'scars heal, forget the pain' type. Not a single thanks was said and once entered, she stared at the house. Pitiful siblings, why have such a bitter life!

However in other difficulties, Aunt Zhang could help out, but this is Lian Family's family matter. So even if Aunt Zhang have the heart to, she could only stand by and do nothing. No matter what era, sticking into other people's family is a taboo.
"Aunt Zhang, take care!" Lian Fang Zhou gratefully smiled toward Aunt Zhang, then toward Lian Xiao Man, she politely said: "Third Aunt, can you help send off Aunt Zhang!"

Aunt Zhang originally wanted to say "No need", but saw Lian Fang Zhou giving her the eye, then held her tongue. Lian Xiao Man's brows was slightly wrinkled, obviously showing a not very willing expression. Lian Fang Zhou, a younger generation actually ordered her, this made her extremely uncomfortable.

However she is an elder, and Aunt Zhang did help out today. She, the elder need to give her thanks to her, personally sending her is fitting right? Lian Fang Zhou and her siblings are all kids, letting them go forward is a bit lacking in manner.

Thinking like this, did Lian Xiao Man felt somewhat better, smiled as she went to the yard as she send off Aunt Zhang as she was told to. But her heart still felt a bit unhappy. This Aunt Zhang, really don't know where her chatter come from, talked with her for a good while before she actually left. Only then did Lian Xiao Man let out a breathe, hurriedly turned around to go in.

When she returned to room, dinner were already on the table. When saying dinner, it was actually just a pot of pumpkin rice. Lian Che saw that her  sister and brother haven't returned after so long and the sky has nearly darkened, then decided to wash the pumpkin Lian Fang Zhou brought back and put in the rice to cook. At this time it was already cooked.

"Third Aunt, please come have dinner!" Lian Fang Zhou saw her (Xiao Man) entering and smiled. Lian Fang Zhou's tone was very polite. But because it was too polite, Lian Xiao Man felt unhappy instead, she then grinned: "Hey, we're all one family, why be polite! In future, no need to treat each other as strangers!"

Lian Fang Zhou glanced at her, still very polite as she gave a slight smile: "This isn't the problem of treating as stranger or not. Even though we are one family but you are Aunt (GuNaiNai- this aunt means married daughter)." Aunt still counts as a guest. Lian Xiao Man saw herself, neither soft or hard attempts meet Lian Fang Zhou's two nails. She felt even more displeased in her heart, however she knew she obviously can't take advantage of Lian Fang Zhou by speech. So she smiled and no longer spoke as she went forward.

Seeing the table of five bowls of pumpkin rice, Lian Xiao Man frowned and said: "Aiya, how could it do just eating these? You are all in your growing period, should be eating more good thing! Fang Zhou, go to kitchen again and make another two dishes, Ah Ze you help with the fire!”

30.Dissolving engagement part 4
Translated by Maggie Edited by Yi Yue

Yun Family
In a young girl's room, a whiff of medicinal fragrance spread all over the room, covering up all the original smell of the room. Yun Luo Feng stood completely naked in front of a bathtub, she slowly lifted a foot and cautiously stretched it toward the wooden tub, when her toes touch the medicinal liquid in bath, an unbearable pain spread through her toes. She hardened her heart, and placed her whole leg into it. That moment, the biting pain made her hand itch to chop off her whole leg, but she understood that if she couldn't endure this hurdle, then can only forever be a trash who can't cultivate!

"Xiao Mo, you told me before, the medicinal bath will be very painful, but I didn't expect it to be this kind of painful."  Yun Luo Feng bitterly smiled, but eventually submerge her whole body in the bath tub.  At this time, she felt countless knives cutting her skin, it hurt so much, she wanted to jump out several times, however, once she thinks of the consequence of failure she will bear , she then firmly gritted her teeth and keep enduring.

"Master, do your best ah, as long as you keep bearing it, then afterward, you are free to travel this mainland!” There's nothing wrong with enduring. Xiao Mo's encouragement made Yun Luo Feng's heart shook, and a steadfast expression flitted on the pale face, and the bewitching eyes gave out a burning light and incomparable calmness.

"What you said is right, I have to keep bearing this pain! For myself, also for this Yun Family ... ..." She lowered her eyes, covering the domineering and arrogance in her eyes, "I want to become stronger, I want the people in this continent to no longer dare to bully me, I want that Mu Xing Chou and the dog of an emperor to kneel in front of my parents grave and apologies one day! I also want to ... ... step on the whole continent under my foot!"

She was never willing to be mediocre with people, in the past life she wasn't,' this life she will also not. In her past life, she studied hard to reciprocate the mentor's adoption, this world, it is to keep living on the mainland ... ... Under this severe pain, Yun Luo Feng passed out several times, then even to the end, the whole body has become numb! But in the end, she still went through it. Until the tub of originally green medicinal liquid gradually become black, did she climb out of the tub.  An hour! A whole hour of time, felt like a century long, quite difficult to bear! And so painful, she would still have to bear whole four more times ... …However, because of experiencing the first time, she suddenly felt that this kind of pain, no longer seems to be unbearable like it originally seemed. It is clear that Yun Luo Feng is quixotic. The pain of the first medicinal bath was the lightest, the more closer you are to finishing, it gets more difficult, and till the fifth day, Yun Luo Feng suddenly found one very serious problems … That is, the General Manor has no money! That's right, her medicinal bath for four times was a whole twenty million liang. This is the General Manor's so many years of accumulated saving. The result was she spent it within four days......Yun Luo Feng was stumped, she could imagine her own grandfather's expression of fury, that after he see the empty treasury.

"Miss, Miss," at this time, the maid, Qing Yan hurriedly ran over, that small face full of anxiousness, "Miss, a big problem, Prime Minister Mu Manor's Mu Shen came to see Miss. Right now General isn't home, what should we do?"
Mu Shen?
After hearing this name, Yun Luo Feng's lips lightly raise: "I was just worried about having no money to buy the medicinal herbs needed for the fifth day medicinal bath. This money sender just arrived......"

At this time, in the courtyard of the front yard, Mu Shen was anxious as he pacing back and forth, his face full of apprehension. He has already been thinking for four days at home! In these four days, he thought of a lot of questions, those questions revolve all around one person - Yun Luo Feng!

31. Yun Luo Feng's great Swindle -Unedited
He can be certain that his own matter that other have no way of knowing, not even his own grandfather knows.
But then why did Yun Luo Feng know about this?
So, he thought about it a few days, in the end decided to come here to ask this matter!
Far far away, he saw a young girl clad in white clothes, meet/exposed to the sunlight as she walked over, a touch of light shone down and fell down on that peerless, devastatingly beautiful face, she was like person that came out of a painting. Too lovely to be desired.
Within Mu Shen's eyes was some amazement, before, he had never noticed Yun Luo Feng was this beautiful?
Oh right, it should be temperament!
That's right, the current young girl's temperament seem to have changed. No longer the previous flirtatious and decadent, instead, became more confident, even those feature have a touch of arrogance, those eyes were as if it was looking down on the world.
Suddenly, Mu Shen have a feeling that even his own sister, Mu Wu Shuang have no way of comparing with this white-clothed girl. Since the Crown Prince want to break the engagement with her, one day he'll have lifelong regret.

Third Aunt PK Aunt
Translated by Maggie Edited Yi Yue.

Mrs Qiao was caught off guard, "Aiya" sounded as she was rammed at the lower abdomen,it hurt so much that her vision was black, her body couldn't stand the pain so she stumbled backward.

   Luckily Lian Li who was standing behind her and did not fall over. Some people in the crowd gently laughing.

   How could Mrs Qiao simply let it go after suffering this? With wild anger, it only took one push for her, (Mrs Qiao) to shove Lian Li away. Yelling "You dare hit me? What do you think you are to dare to throw a fit at my door!" She rushed towards Lian Xiao Man.

   The two sister-in-laws’ twisted together, hitting as well as cursing. The two's momentum was too fierce, everyone was stunned for a moment, when they came back around, they hurried to pull apart the two to mediate.

The two was like 'you pull my hair, I'll pull your clothes collar'. Everyone pulled for a good while before they could separate the two. The two was still fiercely staring at each other with red eyes, panting as they insult each other endlessly, clothes were a mess, hair was dishevelled. Both were in dire strait and ferocious.

Lian Fang Zhou looked towards them, nearly bursting out in fits of laughter, the word ‘shrew' is simply the vivid portrayal of the situation in front. Lian Xiao Man screamed and cried out ‘father and mother’ again, as she started crying. Mrs Qiao cursed non-stop, for a period of time it was uneventful.

"Our Lian Family's Eldest, you should say something! Letting them stir trouble like this is hardly presentable!" No one knew who in the crowd called out.

"That's right, that's right!" Everyone else echoed.

Lian Li's brows lightly pinched up, unhappily swept a glance at the direction which the voice sounded out, blaming the person that was being so nosy.

In all fairness, of course she (Mrs Qiao) isn't willing to let Lian Xiao Man stay.
Because after Lian Xiao Man's man died, it was already, not the first time she returned to her family. Every time she returned, she shamelessly doesn't want to leave, this time, she arrived when the day has nearly darken, Lian Li mentally guessed that she definitely stirred up some trouble at her husband's family again, and this time, there's a possibility of staying even longer, and may even shamelessly not leave!

Of course Lian Li wouldn't let her stay. The person who just called was very loud, even if Lian Li want to pretend he didn't hear anything is a bit difficult. So he frowned so deep that it was even more unsightly. Only he was sluggish and had yet to come forward to respond, he sees Lian Fang Zhou pulling Lian Ze over them, pass through the crowd and abruptly came up front.

   The siblings came to Lian Xiao Man's front, Lian Fang Zhou reached out and supported her (Xiao Man), calling out, "Third Aunt!"

   This was out of the blue, so everyone was shocked. Including Lian Xiao Man herself. Lian Li was secretly relieved, the foot that was raised was gently put back.  Aunt Zhang has also just arrived at this time, and also froze when she saw this situation.

   "Third Aunt, since Uncle and Aunt refuse to take you in, then you come to our place! I am willing to take you in." Lian Fang Zhou grasped Lian Xiao Man's hand, her word were very gentle, but the meaning was completely straightforward. Moreover, she used the word "take in", that is saying she, Lian Fang Zhou is the owner.

   Aunt Zhang heard what she said, she then understood her intention, couldn't help but to praise Fang Zhou with 'Brilliance’', Aunt Zhang made up her mind help her (Fang Zhou) in a while. Everyone never thought that Lian Fang Zhou was this generous, so numerous discussion of praise emerge.

   Lian Fang Zhou lightly smiled as she said, "It's what should be done!" And no longer speaked more. Mrs Qiao wasn't happy. She felt that Lian Fang Zhou 'did it on purpose', intentionally using this to ridicule her, make her look bad - or else why did she come now to take in Lian Xiao Man? Not wait for everyone to disperse then say it?

Although Mrs Qiao couldn't accept it at heart, but it isn't good to open her mouth, once she open her mouth, it would seem like she is fighting with Lian Fang Zhou to keep Lian Xiao Man, she certainly won't do that!

 On Lian Li's side, he already breathe out a sigh of relief as he called out "That's right, that's right! You go over to Fang Zhou's home! We are also doing it for your good! Fang Zhou's home got a big bundle of food, how much would four children eat? No worries with one more person! Unlike us, every day we got to count the amount to cook, oh, we have no other way, Ah Hai's study need money! Why need to suffer with us."

   Lian Li explaining like this, was good as it points out his own difficulties, it seems like they can't take in Lian Xiao Man cause of predicament, at once it made the people's feeling of disgust lessen a lot. After all, whose family doesn't place their child as the most important thing? Pity all the parents' heart ah!(Means - Parents tend to worry about their children.)

   But Lian Xiao Man snorted again and again, facing the ground as she fiercely spat a mouthful, glaring at Lian Lin "If you really thought like that I also wouldn't have blame you, you should have told me clearly from the start! Why didn't you say so from the start, but you had to wait for Fang Zhou came, wait til she open her mouth first, then you say that? What do you mean doing for my own good? Only seeing Fang Zhou say like this so you can happily say such generous words! Those that doesn't know would really think you are something good! Hmph, being a bitch still want to set up an arch, is talking your kind of goods!"

   "You -" Lian Li didn't expect Lian Xiao Man to not give him face, in front of his face she said such ugly words, it made him so angry that his face flushed. Within the crowd, some could not endure and gently started laughing. Although Lian Xiao Man's words was harsh, everyone thought about it and felt it was really reasonable.

Afraid that before Lian Fang Zhou came, those two would want to stop Lian Xiao Man and not allow her into the door, not allowing her to take any advantage of their family, how is it really thinking for her own good? If they really thinking for her own good, then at least let her into the room, sit down and slowly discuss, even if they haven't yet think of Lian Fang Zhou's place!

No one would be cold and ruthless to block the door, then turned around and get some ready-made advantage, saying it's for their sake! Everyone talked about the Lian Li couple, as a person, they can't help but be even more shameless.

When hearing Lian Li say that, the two Lian siblings (Fang Zhou and Ah Ze) stared at each other, eyes saying 'so nauseating', didn't expect that Lian Xiao Man, without hesitation talk about them in reverse, Lian Fang Zhou couldn't help but secretly laugh, and suddenly felt that it isn't bad to take in this Third Aunt. At least from now on, there's someone to deal with the detestable Uncle and Aunt.
She's the lower generation, so when doing these kind of things a lot isn't good, even if in reason, but Third Aunt isn't the same!

Originally hearing her husband say it like this, her heart was also full of joy, secretly saying that husband can really talk. Who knew her happiness has yet to warm up, it was fiercely smashed. Mrs Qiao felt a mix of anger and embarrassment, sharply yelling "Really kindness come to no good. In this age, being a good person is hard! At the start, we want to explain it clearly, but you come up crying and throwing a tantrum without stop, how could we open our mouth? Good words were exhausted by you! Your kind of woman, with your man dead and not being well-behaved and stay at your in-law's house, still have the face to yell at people? Can't believe you can open your mouth! It's you who's the bitch, a bitch who can't behave!"

"Hussy, I'll rip your mouth!" Lian Xiao Man was enraged, eyes go red as she glared at Mrs Qiao and rushed over again to go all out on her.

Mrs Qiao's eyes also go red, swore: "Bitch!"

The two struggled as they want to break away and hold the other to give blows. Everyone hurried to pull and numerous mouth tried to persuade. Lian Fang Zhou frowned, looking at Lian Xiao Man, that face full of grief and about to cry but unwaveringly endured, she couldn't help but start to feel some pity and loathe Mrs Qiao even more.

As the saying goes, when insulting, don't disclose people's shortcoming. Lian Xiao Man is a widow, this identity can easily cause trouble. In this era, widow causing trouble where she can't explain even with a hundred mouth can cause death. Once Mrs Qiao opened her mouth it arrived, such vicious motive.

"Aunt! Third Aunt!" Lian Fang Zhou suddenly loudly screamed. This sudden melodious scream startled everyone, including the red eyes Lian Xiao Man and Mrs. Ma (typo by author-should be Qiao), who were like cock fighting.

Suddenly it was silent, so quiet you can hear a pin drop, not even one sound was made.

GEWW 29

Dissolving the engagement part3
Yun Luo's eyes got colder bit by bit; those quick and powerful eyes scanned over the body of those officials who wanted to bury themselves into the ground like a dagger's sharp edge stuck on their backs.
"Your Majesty, this dissolving engagement matter was decided by my granddaughter. If Your Majesty can sympathise with this big official, then please grant this official's wish."
He turned his head around and looked at the elevated Gao Tu, his tone sounding quite  firm.
"Alright!" Gao Tu's eyes lit up like torch. Filled with dignity he said, "Since General Yun placed such a request, zhen will permit it. Only General Yun, don't regret it in the future!"
"This official will not regret it!" Yun Luo's eyes became firmer and more persistent. "This official still has one last matter discuss, that is to hope Your Majesty will permit this official to use the promised blank edict being a decree for my granddaughter. That decree is, from now on whenever my granddaughter meets any royal family member, she doesn't need to bow."
From beginning to end,Yun Luo never mentioned the matter of the death-free gold medallion(refer to chapter 17)
"Permitted." Gao Tu indifferently stated as he waved his hands.
If he really did anything to offend the Emperor, the Emperor could also dispatch the number one expert to kill him, so it matter not whether one has this death-free gold medallion or not.
Even if he doesn't allow this, then what?
That old guy already brought out that blank edict. What could he say? After all, that blank edict was something he had initially promised.
   "If there are no other matters, you can all retire."
"Official take your leave."
When Gao Tu wearily stood up, every official joined their fists,  walking out of the main hall in groups of two-three.
Mu Xing Chou walked over to Yun Luo's side, and he sneered as he mockingly spoke, "Yun Luo, due to your decision today, your granddaughter will never be able to find a husband! However, there might be some who would accept your granddaughter - beggars. HAHAHA!"
As he spoke, Mu Xing Chou arrogantly laughed, "Yun Luo Feng, even if that waste uses her whole life, she still wouldn’t be able to catch up to one thousandth of my granddaughter Mu Wu Shuang! In addition, I'll teach you something, no matter how powerful your Yun Family's talent is, it's no use. Why not raise an outstanding daughter instead?! Yun Qing Ya was the number one genius back then. Yun Luo Feng's father's talent was also not bad. But in the end, they was defeated in our Mu Family's hand. Do you know why?"
Yun Luo's expression become livid. His fist clenched with resounding snapping sounds. His powerful eyes glared like daggers shot at Mu Xing Chou.
Mu Xing Chou wasn't the slightest bit afraid of him. He sneered as he kept on talking, " That's because our Mu Family raised Mu Qin. In the Inner palace, there are no girls as favored as Consort Qin. Even after the Crown Prince's birth mother died, he was also adopted and brought up by Consort Qin! Now, the Mu Family raised a magnificent girl, Mu Wu Shuang! In the future, she will be the future mother of our country! Your Yun Family first gave birth to two short-lived sons, and now after much difficulty has gained a granddaughter who’s trash!"
"So......" he paused, as his lips curled to a ridiculing arc. "After long, the Yun Family will become the past! Also wait until after you die, when Yun Luo Feng  will suffer everyone's abuse, living a life worse than death!"
Yun Lu took a deep breath, fists slightly shivering. Obviously, he took great effort to suppress his heart-felt urge to kill.
"You don't need to worry! I can live for 50-60 more years! Want to bully our Feng'er?  Don't even think about it!"
"HAHAHA." Mu Xing Chou loudly laughed. "Then you self-hypnotise yourself here! However, no matter how much you deny, you can't change the result in the end! My Mu Family will forever be incomparable to yours, and you will quickly become history!"

After finishing his speech, Mu Xing Chou no longer looked at Yun Luo's livid face. He boorishly laughed as he walked out of the main hall.
