FTMTEP Chapter 60

I noticed that the chapter have been properly numbered in NU. (yay!!) Before, I was so worried that the readers will get confused because of the way the chapters were numbered. But now everything is cool.

Translator – Xiao He Lian


Chapter 60:

Zhan Zhen thoughtfully stuffed the luminous pearl under the pillow so that it wouldn’t be so bright.

In the dim light, Xian Sheng half-squinted his eyes and saw Zhan Zhen’s face clearly.

This guy honestly pinned himself on top of him (XS). His posture seemed very well behaved, but his eyes overflowed with a familiar sense of aggression. As long as he (XS) gave an order, he (ZZ) would rush over and eat him without hesitation.

He thought Zhan Zhen would have to think about it for at least two or three days, but this guy… is too fast.

He suddenly became a little nervous, “You…why did you suddenly think about it.”

“Because I want to marry you.” Zhan Zhen stretched out his hand to touch his hair, stroked his face, and said in a hoarse voice: “I have promised your conditions. Can we start now?”

(t/n “want to marry you” in here ZZ means that he wants to consummate their marriage)

As he said, he tentatively leaned in and kissed his cheek lightly.

Xian Sheng searched for topics so that could keep talking, only to find that his mind was blank, “You… Did you agree to it because you want to marry me?”

“No.” Zhan Zhen was a bit fierce: “It’s not because I want to consummate that I promised, it’s because I promised that I want to consummate”

He bit Xian Sheng hard.

“The luminous pearl, put it away…”

“No.” Zhan Zhen said: “I want to take a good look at you.”

……………

Xian Sheng fainted, but Zhan Zhen didn’t stop.

He (ZZ) thinks he is a lunatic; how else can he toss his treasure like this. But who knew Xian sheng looks so good, so pitiful and cute.

He finally restrained himself, ordered someone to bring hot water, and carried him in.

When Xian Sheng woke up again, he felt sore and soft. He could only open his eyes, but couldn’t prop up his body.

Zhan Zhen’s face leaned over, and gave him a kiss: “Work up?”

“…” Xian Sheng thought of what happened last night, and suddenly closed his eyes again.

He can feel that his body has been cleansed, and he should have been given medicine, but he will never forget the guy who was crazy yesterday.

He regretted it.

Zhan Zhen shouldn’t have taken the initiative so quickly. He should have thought of it for a long time. This guy is a pure carnivore. He can do anything to eat meat.

Those so-called problems, he can think about it in a few hours.

“Are you hungry?” Zhan Zhen didn’t find himself despised at all. He asked: “What do you want to eat, I’ll feed you.”

“…You are not going to the barracks?”

“I’ll Go later.”

Xian Sheng glanced at him weakly, “I don’t want to see you.”

Zhan Zhen touched his forehead and said, “I didn’t sleep all night. I’m afraid you’ll get a fever again. Why are you so heartless?”

Xian Sheng frowned: “Are you afraid of my fever… or did you do something to me?”

“…” Zhan Zhen stretched out his hand and hugged him. Actually, he didn’t do anything. After having a taste of the meat, he couldn’t hold back it, and took advantage of him while he was asleep.

Xian Sheng ate something and was carried outside to bask in the sun.

The snow began to melt, water dripping down under the eaves. Zhan Zhen looked satisfied, but Xian sheng was very cold: “well, you should go to the barracks.”

“I……”

“Go.” Xian Sheng glanced at him, Zhan Zhen paused, grabbed the cake and brought it to his mouth. Seeing that he didn’t eat it, he swallowed it himself and said, “I’ll be back early.”

Xian Sheng ignored him.

After Zhan Zhen was sent away, Xian Sheng narrowed his eyes and let someone hold an umbrella to block the sun.

He was tossed a little hard by Zhan Zhen, and soon fell asleep again.

In a daze, there seemed to be someone nearby. He hurriedly opened his eyes to meet Empress Xin’s face. He sat up hurriedly and was pressed down before he could speak.

“You suddenly called for a bath at night. It seems that you two had s*x again last night?”

Xian Sheng was embarrassed, but Empress Xin didn’t care and said, “It seems that the body is pretty good. In that case, the banquet will be in three days. This is the list prepared by me. You can take a look first….”

Xian Sheng took it and looked over. All the people were family members of princes or officials above the second-grade minister, and some of them had daughters.

“Here, Tou Ben Palace painted with Zhu pen. They are all outstanding-looking and elegant. They match your temperament. Zhan Zhen should like them.”

(t/n Zhu bi pen – a pen using red ink originally used by an emperor in signing decrees, now often used by school teachers to correct student papers; brush-pen dipped in red ink)

(t/n Tou ben palace – I think it’s a place that has something to do with scholars)

Xian Sheng nodded, and couldn’t help but said, “taking a concubine…isn’t it a bit too early?”

“You girl.” Empress Xin smiled: “I just want you to see it. I didn’t say you have to accept them now. When you think it’s appropriate, you can tell Zhan Zhen. After all, you sisters should serve together in the future… In Peace and harmony.

Xian Sheng nodded again, and said, “I have troubled mother Empress.”

Originally, he should handle all these things himself, but the Queen felt sorry for him and took care of it. He is not an unreasonable person, and said: “Are there portraits of these people?”

“I knew you would want to see them.” Empress Xin beckoned to let people unfold the portrait in front of him, saying: “This is the daughter of Marquis Wu, named Jiang Ying, with a gentle personality, just like you. She is very likable.”

” Marquis Wu…”

“Jiang Qin’s sister.” Empress Xin explained: “ General Jiang Da and Marquis Jiang Wu have been loyal to the monarch for generations. If this woman is here, Marquis Wu will do his best to assist the crown prince in the future.”

“hm, Graceful and charming.”

Empress Xin looked at him sideways and suddenly said: “What? Are you jealous? Look at you, so unenthusiastic.”

Xian Sheng smiled and said, “A little bit.”

“Ah.” Empress Xin touched his head, and said: “It seems that you two have reconciled now. Such a deep affection. It’s true that I’m not very interesting.”

“I didn’t mean that.”

“You don’t have to explain.” Empress Xin said: “I understand what you mean, but love is love, courtesy is courtesy. If Zhan Zhen tells you he will stay with you for a lifetime, don’t really believe him. He is the future emperor. It’s your duty to choose and take a concubine for him, let him open branches and leaves. This is the rule. You can be jealous, but you can’t refuse.”

(t/n – open branches and leaves – it is often used as a metaphor for human reproduction and reproduction, and to pass on the blood of ancestors.)

“Your task is to send these people for him to select. If he doesn’t want them, it’s his business. If you refuse him directly, he will blame you for being domineering and jealous in the future. Maybe, if he brings in a woman you hate the most, and deliberately obstructs your eyes, then life will be difficult, okay?”

Xian Sheng looked at her for a while, then slowly nodded, and said, “Thank you for your guidance, mother Empress.”

You are in poor health. I just want to share your worries. You are so beautiful that you shouldn’t pick a man. You should let a man pick you, especially the man of the Zhan family.”

Empress Xin waved her hand and asked to change to another pair: “Choose carefully. If he really likes you, he will reject it himself.”

Xian Sheng cheered up. After seeing a few pairs, there was a candidate in his heart. Empress Xin sipped the tea, and suddenly said: “Yes, there is also Qingrong. The Empress Dowager wants to arrange her to Zhan zhen. It’s hard for me to refuse, so she will come in three days, so you take care of this matter yourself.”

Xian Sheng rubbed his forehead and said, “His Royal Highness doesn’t like her.”

“Then let him talk to Empress Dowager.” Empress Xin turned her eyes and said, “What? You don’t feel good about her?”

“I think she is hostile towards me.”

Empress Xin thought for a while, put down the cup, and said: “Her father, and her elder brother, all died in the battle of Nanyang.”

Xian Sheng raised his eyes, his heart sank slightly.

The matter in Nanyang City should be almost ten years old. That was the first time that the Imperial elder brother led an army and returned with a big victory. Liang Country’s victory meant Jin’s defeat.

“Her father is… Marquis Qi?”

Empress Xin nodded; her eyes were a little complicated when she looked at him.

Ever since Zhan Zhen decided to get married, it was impossible for Xian sheng to live a smooth life in Jin. There would always be people staring at him, wanting to take this opportunity to retaliate against South liang.

Can you say that those people are at fault?

No, they are right. It may be said that there is no overall view, but as people who happen to be scratched by a knife, they will inevitably hurt, complain, and want revenge.

Empress Xin didn’t say anything, but asked him to pay attention to his body, and then left.

Xian Sheng leaned on the recliner; his eyes dimmed slightly.

People can’t help themselves. When facing the person they like, they can’t wait to be with him, and Xian Sheng is the same.

After confirming Zhan Zhen’s heart, he couldn’t help himself.

He couldn’t help but confess his heart, and combined with Zhan Zhen, body and mind. but at this moment, he suddenly felt that he had done something wrong again.

He pulled Zhan Zhen into the water.

The eaves were dripping with ice water, and there was a small puddle on the ground. The sun in the sky made people sleepy, and he squinted his eyes slightly.

He came to Jin thanks to Zhan Zhen. if Zhan zhen was targeted because of him, it would be considered even.

He lay down relaxed.

Zhan zhen’s words are not unreasonable. It’s useless to think too much. I’ll think about it when the time comes.

After all, as long as Zhan Zhen doesn’t mention regret, he will never give up on him easily.

Zhan Zhen came back early that day, and bought him noodle soup. Xian sheng sat on a chair to eat. The fragrant and succulent sesame cakes and secret sauce really suit his appetite. He couldn’t help eating more.

(t/n noodle soup – Soup cake, also known as noodle soup, is a food made by tearing the prepared dough into pieces in the hand and cooking it in a pot.)

“The queen came here today?” Zhan Zhen asked, “Did she ask you to take a bath again?”

Xian Sheng glanced at him: ” the queen is not that mundane.”

“Then, what was she here for?”

“Hmm…” Xian Sheng swallowed the food, glanced at him, and said, “She told me to choose a concubine for you.”

Zhan Zhen raised his eyebrows and said, “What did you say?”

“Mother Empress said…” Xian Sheng said: “I can’t refuse, right?”

“You promised?”

“I just agreed to choose a few to show you…”

“What do you mean by choosing a few to show me?!” Zhan Zhen was angry: “ you made an agreement with me yesterday, and today you choose a concubine for me… How can you do this?!”

“Cough.” Xian Sheng was choked by the sauce, wiped his mouth, and comforted: “I mean, I can’t refuse, but you can refuse.”

“You don’t love me at all.”

“…No.” Xian Sheng said, “I love you.”

“You are lying.” Zhan Zhen said coldly: “ You were very cold to me this morning. She said you didn’t refuse to choose a concubine. You didn’t think about my feelings at all.”

“… it’s hard for me to refuse when mother puts it forward.”

“You can say that you don’t want to.”

“Mother asked me to show it to you. If I refuse, won’t I look very jealous?” Xian Sheng took his hand and said, “Anyway, I just did it according to the rules. You can refuse.”

You shouldn’t have mentioned this to me. By mentioning this, it means you want to test me. You don’t trust me, so you want to check if I get tempted or not.”

“…”

“Why aren’t you saying anything, then it means what I said was true.”

Zhan Zhen frowned, retrieved his hand and turned to leave, but heard Xian Sheng say: “Stop.”

He stopped, and Xian Sheng said solemnly: “Don’t make troubles unreasonably, come here.”

“You were still very indifferent to me this morning.” Zhan Zhen has more to say “ drove me out without seeing me off…”

“Were you late?”

“No.” Zhan Zhen said, “I will sleep in the study tonight.”

“Do you want to sleep with me?”

“…”

“Come here if you want.”

One step, two step, three step.

Zhan Zhen pursed his mouth and turned back.

Then stretched out his hand to hug his waist, kissed him and said: “Can we do it tonight?”
