Chapter 27: Rather Than Live Suffering Wouldn’t It Be Better To Die

“Second Older Sister, Wan er doesn’t want the cage. Wan er only wants the hamster!” Behind her, Yao Mowan’s eyes curved as she reminded. Hearing this, Yao Suluan gritted her teeth, but forced herself to squeeze out a trace of a smile. Taking advantage of the time before Ye Junqing could react, she opened the cage and cupped the hamster in her hand, then turned around to walk to Yao Mowan. Ye Junqing also wanted to know what exactly Yao Mowan was up to and so he didn’t move to stop her. But in the next second, he regretted!

When Yao Suluan almost got to Yao Mowan, Yao Mowan suddenly threw Fluffy towards Yao Suluan. Cats catch mice, this is the heaven’s law and earth’s principle. The moment Fluffy saw the hamster, she immediately opened her ferocious mouth and clamped down on the hamster’s neck. Her two front claws furiously left ten long bloody scratches on Yao Suluan’s hands.

“Aaah— Oww! Yao Mowan, you imbecile. What are you doing!?” The pain caused Yao Suluan to cry out, her angry pupils fiercely glared at Yao Mowan. If it weren’t for the fact that Ye Hongyi was here, she would have definitely stripped this imbeciles skin immediately.

Imperial gui fei, watch your words!” A warning voice abrupted rang out. Ye Hongyi’s cold pupils swept towards Yao Suluan who forget her manners as he took Yao Mowan into his arms.

“Your Majesty! She……” Yao Suluan covered her injured hand, in pain. But when she meet Ye Hongyi’s cold pupils, she silenced her voice and retreated to the side.

“Yao Mowan! How could you!” Seeing Yao Moxin’s sole remnant being swallowed by Fluffy in two, three bites, Ye Junqing’s eyes turned blood red. The hands in his sleeves clenched into fists as extreme grief and indignation surfaced in his heart. He hates! Hates Ye Hongyi for not protecting Moxin, hates himself for, even at the very end, not speaking these three words!

Ye Hongyi didn’t pay attention to Ye Junqing’s fuming anger and settled his pitch-black eyes on the delicate body in his arms.

“Wan er, what did you do that for? That’s the Empress’s favorite hamster!”

“Your Majesty…… Did Wan er do something wrong? Why are they so angry? Down there, Eldest Sister must be really lonely. Since that hamster was Eldest Sister’s pet, Wan er just wanted to send it to keep Eldest Sister company ah!” Yao Mowan spoke dolefully. Her tears dropped down with a ‘pata’ and her body nestled even more into Ye Hongyi as she cowered. She need not tell anyone that her tears were for the sake of that hamster. Rather than having it suffer Ye Hongyi’s torture day after day, it’d be better just to end this life.

“Then why did you incite that animal to scratch ben gong!” At the side, Ye Suluan was furious with Yao Mowan’s foolishly innocent act and angrily questioned.

“Why didn’t Second Older Sister be more careful ah, does it hurt?” Yao Mowan seemed as if she had just noticed the scratch marks on Yao Suluan’s hand and asked with concern.

“Why do you think!? Im…… Your Majesty, this qie’s afraid this wound requires Imperial Physician Xuan to take a look. This qie will withdraw first.” Seeing Ye Hongyi nod, Yao Suluan immediately turned around. In her heart she had already cursed ‘imbecile’ countless times!

The sun shone brightly as the flower fragrance delighted the senses. Fluffly curled up on the grass, extremely satisfied. Lifting her front paw to lick, she was completely unaware of the danger nearby.

“You’re not allowed to bully Fluffy!” Seeing Ye Junqing ruthlessly strode towards Fluffy, Yao Mowan suddenly rushed over and took the Fluffy that was still reflecting on the delicious taste into her arms. Yao Mowan opened her bright eyes wide and glared straight at Ye Junqing.

“Junqing, what Wan er said wasn’t completely without logic. Rather than letting the hamster yearn for its owner day and night, wouldn’t it be better to just send it to reunite with its owner? That way it also ends the bitterness of yearning.” Ye Hongyi stolled protectively in front of Yao Mowan, his abyss-like pupils looked towards Ye Junqing with deep meaning.

“This younger brother doesn’t feel well, excuse this one!” Enduring the heavens piercing anger in his heart, Ye Junqing left the Imperial Garden, livid. Ye Hongyi stared at Ye Junqing’s back figure for quite a long time before turning around to look at Yao Mowan.

“Wan er ah, tell zhen, why did you suddenly want to raise a cat?” Ye Hongyi bent his finger and stroked the Fluffy in Yao Mowan’s arms, a faint indiscernible light in his deep pupils.

“Wan er was tricking them, Wan er doesn’t like Eldest Sister and also doesn’t like Eldest Sister’s pet hamster. So Wan er had Fluffy eat that hamster on purpose…… Is Wan er really bad? Will Your Majesty not like Wan er anymore……” Yao Mowan puffed up her cheeks, not concealing her emotions at all.

“Haha! How would that be possible! Zhen likes Wan er the most! Tell you a secret, zhen also doesn’t like that hamster!” Ye Hongyi pulled Yao Mowan over and pamperingly lightly knocked her head. In this moment, he has come to believe that Yao Mowan was truly foolish. But he just loves fools!

“Your Majesty likes Wan er, Your Majesty is the best!” Yao Mowan lifted her eyes to look at Ye Hongyi and smiled simple-mindedly. But the hand hidden beneath Fluffy clenched into a fist, the nails digging into her flesh.

After Ye Hongyi send Yao Mowan back to Guan Osprey Palace, he returned to the Imperial Study. It was about lunchtime. Ting Yue and Liu Xing finished preparing the meal and two pairs of bowls and chopsticks were placed on the table as before.

Niang niang, should this servant go call the Esteemed Prince?” Ting Yue quietly asked for instructions.

“No need. Liu Xing, bring Fluffy over. Since the Esteemed Prince isn’t hungry, just let Fluffy sit in this seat in the future!” Yao Mowan’s expression did not change as she aimed a glance at the door and deliberately raised the volume of her voice.

“Yes!” Just as Liu Xing walked over carrying Fluffy, Ye Junqing suddenly slammed open the door and entered. He strode with large steps to the table and sat down.

“This is ben wang’s seat, how dare you let an animal sit in it?” Ye Junqing indignantly looked at Yao Mowan, then continued to glare towards the Fluffy in Liu Xing’s arms. Silent, Yao Mowan didn’t reply and just ate, yet a trace of indescribable warmth actually appeared in her heart. People must eat after all, otherwise, how could they continue to live.

Liu Xing naturally understood the psychological tactic Master just used. Then, becoming aware of Ye Junqing’s extremely unfriendly gaze as if he wanted to eat Fluffy alive, Liu Xing tactfully carried Fluffy and left the main hall. At the side, Ting Yue carefully served Ye Junqing and picked dishes for him.

Ben wang is talking to you!” Ye Junqing didn’t want to argue with a fool, not to mention this fool was even Moxin’s little sister, but he really couldn’t calm down his anger. That was the only thing Moxin left behind, how could she be so cruel? From her appearance she looked completely naive, but in reality he didn’t know how black her heart is!

“Speak not when eating, talk not before sleeping.” Yao Mowan straightened up and looked unflinchingly at Ye Junqin before continuing to eat. This one sentence cause Ye Junqing to be completely shocked, his face exposing an astonished expression. This shouldn’t be something a fool is able to say!

After that, no matter how Ye Junqing questioned, Yao Mowan didn’t say a single word and just continued to use the meal. Only now did she look towards Ting Yue.

“Ting Yue, clear the table.” Hearing this, Ting Yue looked awkwardly towards Ye Junqing.

Ben wang still hasn’t finished eating!” Ye Junqing angrily shouted as he slapped the table. Yao Mowan didn’t take any notice and just walked into the inner room.

“Wha…… what kind of attitude is that? Based on the current dynasty law, with the exception of the Empress and the imperial gui fei, all the imperial concubines in the Inner Palace must salute wang ye! This is etiquette!” Ye Junqing knocked the table as he spoke, causing it to sound ‘dadada’.

Wang ye…… if you’re not eating then this servant needs to clear the table……” Ting Yue timidly reminded. Hearing this, Ye Junqing froze, then fiercely sighed. Picking up the chopsticks, he looked at the food in front of him.

What happened to him? He had never been a fickle and impatient person. After Moxin passed away, he didn’t know who else in this world, or what other matter in this world would be able to cause his emotions to fluctuate. But right now, he actually got angry at a fool! Maybe it was because of Moxin’s hamster. That’s right, it must be! After Ye Junqing thought it through, he was finally able to feel at ease and eat with large mouthfuls. He really was hungry.

When Ting Yue pushed open the door and entered the inner room, Yao Mowan was currently leaning next to the window, quietly gazing at Changle Palace. That was the place her Zhong er was born.

Niang niang, the Esteemed Prince has left.” Ting Yue placed the fruit plate in her hands on the table and moved with light steps to Yao Mowan’s side.

    • Chiyomira says:

      You’re welcome! As for the updates, Phoenix is third on the list for me so for the time being there’ll be steady updates, but it probably won’t be sped up for a while yet. I’m really sorry! I know the torture of waiting for more chapters. 🙁

    Umm, translator-san, Ye Hongyi shouldn’t be in the scene when Yao Mowan and Ye Junqing were eating. I think it should have been Ye Junquing instead of Ye Hongyi.

    • Chiyomira says:

      Haha, bunny-chan you’re totally right. Ye Hongyi is just easier to type than Ye Junqing so while I was translating, I kept typing Ye Hongyi and accidentally missed catching my mistake that time. Thanks for pointing it out. I think I’ve fixed it.
