Chapter 19: Once Again, Attempting to Enter the Palace
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Lou Yu Xin was killed because of Yao Zhen Ting . Five years ago Yao Zhen Ting took a third wife behind Madam’s back and even has a son. The Third Madam resides currently in the Su fu east of the city……” Ping Zhi picked up the note and read it, a bit numbly.

“What!” Dou Xiang Lan’s eyes widened like copper bells, she fiercely grabbed the note from Ping Zhi’s hands with her bloody fingers. Reading the content of the note, Dou Xiang Lan was infuriated to the point her whole body shook and blood rushed up to her head, her anger soared and immediately rushed out of Bamboo Wish Pavilion, not caring about anything.

“Madam…… Madam, you must not act recklessly!” Ping Zhi knew that this turn of events was far from good and hurriedly chased after her. Seeing Dou Xiang Lan and Ping Zhi run out of Bamboo Wish Pavilion, Ting Yue secretly tailed them until she saw Dou Xiang Lan and Ping Zhi run out of Yao Xiang fu directly towards the east of the city. Then Ting Yue finally relaxed and returned to the fu to find Liu Xing.

In the side room of the main hall, Yao Zhen Ting currently had his eyes closed as he rested. He was also silently pondering his next move, how to support Yao Su Luan to ascend to the empress position when the door of the room was suddenly pushed open. Pleas

Lao ye, it’s not good!” Liu Xing walked in with a terrified expression and dropped to a kneel in front of Yao Zhen Ting.

“What is it?” Yao Zhen Ting’s brows knitted tightly as he looked towards Liu Xing, irritated.

“Something is wrong with Big Madam! Just now, this servant saw Big Madam rush out like she had gone mad towards the east of the city. She was even screaming kill kill kill, and saying what third wife, little young master……” Liu Xing anxiously reported.

“What!? Crap!” Yao Zhen Ting’s voice vibrated like thunder and he immediately jumped up from the chair, not even bothering to put on his shoes before rushing out.

“Yao Tu! Prepare a palanquin! Hurry and prepare a palanquin—” Yao Zhen Ting knew that Dou Xiang Lan was usually the jealous type. Now that she found out he had received Su Mu Zi outside the fu and even had a son, afraid there’s going to be a big scene.

Seeing Yao Zhen Ting leave Yao Xiang fu in the palanquin, Liu Xing didn’t dare to waste even a second and immediately ran towards Opaque Flower Pavilion.

In Opaque Flower Pavilion, Yao Mo Wan was sitting in front of the copper mirror. She indifferently look at that beautiful as pearls mien in the mirror, some chill overflowing from her eyes.

Yao Mo Wan, seducing Ye Hong Yi is the most disgusting thing in the world to do, but you must do this, for the sake of revenge. For the sake of crushing those who wronged you one by one under your feet you must smile, smile sweetly……

“Miss, lao ye has already left the fu to chase them!” Liu Xing ran in gasping for breath, reporting excitedly. But upon seeing Yao Mo Wan’s clothes that had a large amount of exposure, his heart felt as if it dropped to the ground.

“Got it. Ting Yue, let’s go.” Yao Mo Wan gathered all of her strength in order to maintain the smile on her lips as she slowly lifted her body.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Miss…… You really want to enter the palace……” Liu Xing’s throat choked as he forced out the question.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“This is my only way out.” Yao Mo Wan saw the confusion and reluctance in Liu Xing’s eyes. It was a pity, everything in her life had already flipped from the time she was in Fragrant Harmony Courtyard

Within Plum Pavilion, the sound of strings and wind instruments stirred one’s heart. Ye  Hong Yi languidly sat on a wisteria bamboo chair in the main hall, his fingers played with the jade pendant at his waist as his dark pupils looked with entertained appreciation at Yao Su Luan’s body that was dancing in the center of the hall. Only seeing Yao Su Luan’s toes tap the floor and her body was like the butterflies that danced amidst the flowers, captivatingly beautiful. Ye Hong Yi couldn’t help but admit that Yao Su Luan’s dance was unique and unmatched in all of the Inner Palace. Being able to see her dancing counted as quite an enjoyment.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Finishing on dance, Yao Su Luan’s charming eyes were like silk. Just as she wanted to get ready to properly, thoroughly serve Ye Hong Yi, a bunch of noise suddenly came from outside the door.

“Your Majesty, please quell your anger. This qie will head out to take a look.” Seeing Ye Hong Yi’s eyes slightly darken, Yao Su Luan immediately commanded the musician to play some lighthearted tunes and with quick steps left the room.

Outside the Plum Pavilion, Yao Su Luan’s personal maid, Cai Ying was currently firmly blocking Ting Yue from coming in.

“Who is it that’s making a racket outside? If you startle His Holy Highness, do you guys have enough heads to be chopped!?” When Yao Su Luan walked out of Plum Pavilion, she arrived just in time to see Ting Yue and Cai Ying tangled in a fight.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Niang niang, this girl……” Before Cai Ying finished speaking, Ting Yue suddenly pushed aside Cai Ying and hurriedly threw herself in front of Yao Su Luan.

Gui fei niang niang, it’s bad! Big Madam found out that lao ye took a third concubine outside who even gave birth to a son, and rushed out to find them, saying that she wants to kill that pair of mother and son. Lao ye also rushed out after hearing of this, it seems he even brought a knife……” Ting Yue looked anxiously towards Yao Su Luan as she reported, flustered.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Hearing this, Yao Su Luan was slightly shocked and sized Ting Yue up suspiciously.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Father took a third concubine? Why did ben gong never hear of this? If ben gong did not remember wrong, you seem to be the second concubine’s maid!” Yao Su Luan’s pupils gradually chilled as she spoke coldly.

“This servant is Ting Yue. Just now, it was this servant that personally saw Big Madam rush out crazily. Lao ye also followed after riding a palanquin……” Seeing Yao Su Luan this calm, Ting Yue’s heart panicked and her tone became somewhat weaker. Just when Yao Su Luan wanted to speak again, Yao Tu suddenly ran over from behind.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Li fei niang niang, something terrible has happened. You better head to Su fu. Right now, besides niang niang, there’s no one else that can persuade lao ye! Big Madam is in imminent peril!” Yao Tu breathlessly reported.

Gui fei is a title that tells YSL’s concubine position. It’s a pretty high rank. Then there’s her given title, li fei that the emperor grants as like a nickname. Li Fei translates to beautiful concubine. This is an interesting article interview of an actual concubine that may help you understand period novels like these a bit more. http://teranga-and-sun.blogspot.com/2012/06/secret-life-of-ming-concubines.html 

Seeing it was Yao Tu, Yao Su Luan’s heart thumped and she immediately pushed Ting Yue aside to walk to Yao Tu.
