FTMTEP Chapter 64

Translator – Xiao He Lian


Chapter 64:

In previous years in South Liang, Xian Sheng did have get-togethers with ladies. After all, he has always been pretending to be a girl.

So, at this moment facing a group of women, Xian Sheng is also very comfortable. He has an excellent memory and never forgets what he has heard. so, facing this group of women, he was not afraid to have a conversation.

Moreover, his health is poor, even if there is something he can’t understand, he can just say that he is confined to the house all year round and can’t go out.

The Queen thought of this too. Most of the time, if Xian Sheng couldn’t pick up the conversation, she would lazily take over. Xian Sheng didn’t have to worry about anything, just sat around so the queen could show off him like a flower vase.

Zhan Yin didn’t care about anything except Xian Sheng, she only cared about whether he was eating and drinking well. When she saw him stop the chopsticks, she gave him something to eat. Her sister-in-law kept talking, before long, the Empress warned Xian sheng: “Take your legs away.”

He drew back his legs, and in the next second, he felt Zhan Yin’s figure jolt with shock. He must have kicked the queen under the table. For a long time, he didn’t say a word, probably trying to recall how many words he spoke in total.

This made Xian Sheng laugh secretly.

After the meal, the empress took the lead and led them to tour the prince’s residence. Xiang sheng followed for a while, then was driven back to rest by the empress.

He nodded to the ladies to say goodbye and retired; Zhan Yin was dragged by the empress. Zhan Zhen who followed him all this time suddenly saw him turn around, he hurried back a few steps and hid in the corner waiting for him to come over. But before Xian Sheng came over, he suddenly heard someone shout: “ Your Highness the Crown Princess”

Xian Sheng stopped, turned his head to look, and said unexpectedly: “Miss Jiang.”

Jiang Ying smiled at him and said: “ My father mentioned you to me before, today I had the chance to see you. the Crown Princess really lives up to the name of the world’s most beautiful woman”

The lady is looking for me, not just for courtesy.”

“The princess is really straight forward.” Jiang Ying was a little embarrassed and hesitant, but toughened up and said: “ With you in the Crown Prince’s residence, I’m sure His Highness can’t look at such mediocre people as me.”

Xian Sheng waited patiently for her to get into the topic, Jiang Ying pursed her lips, and finally suppressed her shyness, and said: “I came here because my mother already told A’Ying the purpose of today’s visit… to put it bluntly, we are just a tool to extend the family line, A’Ying is not talented, although her status is low, she is not willing to be a concubine. Speaking of which is a bit too exorbitant… But if the queen insists, I ask the crown princess to help me by being a villain in front of His highness.”

Xian Sheng didn’t expect that she would say such a thing. The Queen did take a fancy to her but he didn’t know Zhan Zhen’s opinion about this. He nodded immediately, and said, “Lady, rest assured, if you really don’t want to, His Highness won’t make things difficult for others.”

Jiang Ying blushed: “I… don’t mean that, it’s just my father, who is loyal to the court… he…”

The more she spoke, the more difficult it was for her to speak.

She heard from her brother that her father told him to help the prince bed a girl. It’s really hard to watch how they keep flattering the royal family. It’s strange to say that their Jiang family also worked hard for the Great Jin and died. Their war achievements are also famous. There is no one in the world who doesn’t know that they are loyal to the Jiang family, but my father has to find such crooked ways to please the prince, it’s really embarrassing.

“The Lady doesn’t have to say much.” Xian Sheng said gently, “I already understand.”

Jiang Ying is grateful: “Thank you, Your Royal Highness! But please don’t tell my mother about this. If she knows, she’ll be angry with me for ruining father’s good deed.”

“Lady rest assured.”

Jiang Ying’s originally humble waist was slightly straight, but her cheeks turned red, and said, “There will be a temple fair on the outskirts of the city in two days. It will be very lively. I don’t know…if the Crown Princess has time to go and offer incense together?”

Temple fair? lively?

The corners of Xian Sheng’s mouth raised. Just as he was about to say something, he suddenly felt that he had been hit by something. He paused and said, “I’m afraid I am not fit to join in the fun.”

Jiang Ying was a little disappointed, but still bowed gently and retreated, she turned and left with the maid. Xiang sheng vaguely heard Mrs. Jiang probing her, and the little girl’s lying remarks: “It’s just to invite her to the temple fair.”

Madam Jiang immediately lowered her voice: “Did she agree?”

“No.”

“Can’t you even get something like this done.”

When the voice went away, Xian Sheng turned around, staring at the corner, and said: “Come out.”

Zhan Zhen came out slowly, leaned against the wall. folding his arms across his chest, glanced at him, and said coldly: “Come here.”

Xian Sheng asked the people around him to retreat, walked over, and asked, “Why didn’t you go to the barracks?”

“I went.” Zhan Zhen pulled him over and hugged him, and said, “And then I came back.”

Xian Sheng hit him in the hand: “How can a dignified prince abandon his duty for private purposes? how will the soldiers in the camp think of you?”

“What is there to think about, I am newly married, and have a beautiful wife. Also, I go for roll calls everyday. I’m already very hardworking.”

Xian sheng smiled angrily at him. Before he spoke, Zhan Zhen pinched his face and hooked his arms around his thin waist. Drooping his eyelids, he gave him a pained expression and said “Jiang Qin’s sister is really beautiful. Did you take a good look at her?”

“What’s wrong with you?”

“You are a man, so naturally I should be wary of some people.” Zhan Zhen frowned. Originally, he only needed to guard against men, but he was sure that no man could compare to him. But since he discovered that Xian Sheng is a man, he suddenly felt that any woman in the world could snatch Xian Sheng away. Since he was forced to marry him, who knows if Xian Sheng will suddenly feel wronged or want to have kids.

If this matter is not solved, he may not want to let Xian sheng out of sight for the rest of his life.

“I said I like you; how could I still go to see a woman?”

“If I hadn’t stopped it in time, would you have agreed?”

“I originally wanted to refuse.”

“You’re lying.” Zhan Zhen picked him up and said: “I don’t believe you.”

Xian Sheng scratched his chin and deliberately said, “You childish devil.”

At the end of the day, Xian Sheng still wanted to go to the temple fair to join in the fun. After being carried back to the room, he asked Zhan Zhen: “Then do you have time to accompany me?”

“There are many people at the temple fair.”

“The weather is getting warmer, I want to go for a walk, too.” Xian Sheng looked at him expectantly. Seeing him sitting at the table silently, he said: “If you don’t have time, let A’Yin accompany me?”

Zhan Zhen’s face was cold: “Can’t you see that she likes you?”

“She likes me because I’m her sister-in-law.”

Zhan Zhen lifted his pen and dropped it again with dissatisfaction:: “You are not allowed to see her alone in the future.”

Xian Sheng looked at him for a while, realizing that he was really angry, and said sternly: “Although I am a man, I also know propriety, justice and shame. I won’t hook up young girls.”

“I don’t believe you.” Zhan Zhen said: “How can you not be tempted to hang around flowers every day.”

Xian Sheng was also unhappy: “Zhan Lue Lue!”

Zhan Zhen looked at him with a cold face for a while, came over and carried him to the bed to kiss, Xian Sheng hurriedly struggled: “The people in the house have not left yet.”

“…It doesn’t matter.” Zhan Zhen pulled out the jade hairpin from his hair and whispered: “I want to build a cage and lock you up so that no one is allowed to look at you.”

“Zhan Lue Lue…hmm.”

In broad daylight, Xian Sheng was made flaccid by him and he soon lost his strength.

Zhan Zhen, with red eyes, hugged him in his arms. Xian Sheng pursed his lips, pushed him hard, but failed.  Zhan Zhen gave him another kiss on the face: “I’m full, get some sleep.”

Xian Sheng closed his eyes and said in a hoarse voice “I want to take a wash.”

Zhan Zhen licked his lips and said, “I’ll ask someone to prepare water.”

Xian Sheng nestled on the bed, pulled her skirt to cover her legs, her long eyelashes trembling constantly.  After Zhan Zhen gave the order, he soon came back and looked at him with his hands on his pillow. Xian sheng frowned and said, “I’m afraid they’ll come looking for me later.”

“Just say you are unwell.”

“You…” Xian Sheng wanted to say something, and twisted his face.

Zhan Zhen came to kiss him. He couldn’t stand it and wanted to do him again. He said hoarsely: “What are you crying about? I haven’t had good fun for several days.”

“…How can you be like this?” Xian Sheng said with tears in his eyes: “I didn’t even agree to do it.”

“Is it hurting you?” Zhan Zhen said, “Then if you don’t agree, wouldn’t it be difficult to control myself in the future?”

“I don’t want to talk to you anymore.” Xian Sheng curled up and pressed his lips and said, “You don’t respect me.”

“Nonsense.” Zhan Zhen gave him another bite, and did him once again. Zhan Zhen was full of grievances before, and is now refreshed, so he was willing to coax him: “if you didn’t respect you, you would have gone to heaven early on.”

Xian Sheng was even more aggrieved: “Don’t talk to me anymore.”

“If I don’t talk to you, who do I talk to?” Zhan Zhen rightfully said, “Aren’t you my little baby?”

“……” Xiang sheng shrank back. Suddenly there was a movement outside the door, it was the empress who came back: “Sheng’er?”

Xiang sheng immediately said, “Get out quickly.”

Zhan zhen reached out to wipe the golden beans at the corners of his eyes, put down the bed curtain and organized his clothes and walked out. (t/n golden beans is a metaphor used for tears)

Xian Sheng hurriedly pulled the quilt to cover himself, nesting inside and pricked up his ears.

The Empress said: “Why are you in the house?”

“This son came back to accompany Sheng’er for lunch. I used to do it in the past, but I forgot that there are guests in the mansion today.”

The queen didn’t know whether she believed it or not, and asked, “Where is Shenger?”

“Sleeping.” Zhan Zhen said: “you know his body. He has to rest for a day when you visit the garden. He fell asleep as soon as he came back.”

The empress was silent for a moment. Xiang sheng guessed she was weighing the truth in Zhan Zhen’s words, but in the end, there were people around, she quickly complied and said, “In that case, then let her rest.”

“Everyone, take your time.”

After about half a cup of tea, Zhan Zhen came back. He took Xian Sheng’s head out of the quilt and curved his lips: “They’re all gone.”

“Humph.”

“What?” Zhan Zhen tilted his head and saw him (XS) turn on the waterworks. He said: “Come, let me give you a hug.”

Xiang sheng looked at him for a moment, finally slowly stretched out two thin arms for him to hold. Zhan Zhen bent over, easily put his arms around him: “little baby, it’s easy to tease you.”

“Then don’t do me.”

“I’m going to do just that,” said Zhan Zhen. “Every time you talk with someone, I’m going to do you once. so that you can only be held by this prince all your life.”

“…stinky brat.”

“But you smell good.”

There was the sound of the water rattling, and then there was a murmur from outside. Xian Sheng blushed and suddenly twisted him: “take your hands off!”

Zhan Zhen shrank his hands, took him out with the blanket, and said: “looks like you still have some strength to put a tantrum…”

Xian Sheng stared at him coldly.

Zhan Zhen concluded: “It seems we can do more in the future.”
