Voluntary As Maid

Yue Qin Tea House was one of the renowned tea houses in the center of Luo Yang City. Ten years ago, it was only a slumped and broken tea house.

Wearing the yellow chiffon dress made her well-developed body looked more rounded. Ay, ay it’s plump and absolutely not fat. Her pair of sparkling black eyes, directly glared angrily towards two people, “Big uncle, what do you mean?” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation.

“Zhu Yu, no matter what this Yue Qin Tea House is also one of Chu family’s business, your surname is Chu, but after all you are a girl. In the future, you will be married and your children won’t be had Chu as their surname. How about handing the business over to the family who has the Chu name?” The person who was called out as big uncle named Chu Xiang, he was stroking his mountain goat-like mustache. Translated by azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

Chu Xiang son’s, Chu Mu Cai, who sounded like an opera singer chimed from beside, “Cousin sister, My father is willing to pay one thousand  silver taels in order to take over your tea house. It is an extremely best offer for you, so what makes you second guess yourself?” Translation is belonged to azurro, translated for azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

“Humph,” Chu Zhu Yu sneezed. Her Tea House, it is more valuable than that small silvers offer.

“When grandfather passed away, the people who asked for separation were you guys. Grandfather had so many businesses, but you guys just gave this Yue Qin Tea House to my father and I. Now, when the tea house business is earning some money, you guys are thinking to get some share! Let me ask you if today I advertised one thousand silvers to sell the tea house, how many people would come to buy it?” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation.

Chu Mu Cai’s face changed, “The Chu family’s business is not something you can sell when you want to sell it!” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

“The lease is still in my hand. How can I not sell it?” Chu Zhu Yu looked with impassively. She had seen shameless people, but never had she met more shameless people like her  cousin brother and big uncle. read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation.

“Or cousin sister, you want to meet in the court room?” Chu Mu Cai threatened. “As the saying goes, normal civilians won’t pick a fight with a government officer. Cousin, did you forget my status? or second uncle it’s better that you tell her.” this is translated by azurro for azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

The person Chu Mu Cai called as second uncle is Chu Zhu Yu’s father, Chu Sheng.

Chu Sheng’s character is soft. He pulled his daughter to his side and speaking with a low tone said, “Yu Er, your cousin brother is the Imperial Scholar whom obtained rank seven in the government. Not to mention, currently he is the student of today’s scholar-bureaucrat president of supreme court1]. We can’t piss him off.”

“Father!” Chu Zhu Yu said with a comforting tone. The kind of status Chu Mu Cai have, she knew it well. “It’s not like I am greedy for money. I feel dissatisfied. The time when grandfather passed away, mother also passed away. Big uncle and the rest didn’t even have any small sympathy for us. That time when the tea house was in crisis, we have gone through all the hardship, and now they want to take advantage of us. It’s not that easy!” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation.

“Yu Er, do you have any ideas?” Chu Sheng knew his daughter might have ideas.

Chu Zhu Yu smiled gently and turned her head. Looking at Chu Xiang and Chu Mu Cai she said,” Big uncle, cousin brother, you guys are worrying that if one day I get married, my  children would have a different surname. You’re worrying that the Chu’s business will be taken over by someone who is not a Chu?”

Father and Son nodded their heads and said, “Yes.” azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

“It is a simple matter to solve,” her lips curved upwards and smiled so obviously.

“How to solve it?” The father and son asked. translated by azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

“I will find someone who wants to get married into this family. Won’t it do?” Believing that she, Chu Zhu Yu, could find someone in Luo Yang City who wanted to marry her with a single call. There will be many to pick from.

After four days, Chu Zhu Yu finally came to understand that her ideas to make a man marry her and get into her family wasn’t something easy. this is translated by azurro for azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

On the first day, she went to the doors of twenty-seven matchmakers. Once they heard that the miss from the Chu family was searching for someone who was willing to marry into her family, none of the match-making ladies wanted to take the business. She even didn’t set that high of a standard. Speaking frankly, her requirements were not really high. She wanted a man who is able to do accounting, who could enter the kitchen and serve, understood about tea and its quality, and the most important out of those, he should be someone very healthy… read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation.

But before waiting for her to finish all her requirements, those match-making ladies has kicked her out from the door.

On the second day, Chu Zhu Yu was trying to find some poor literate men in the city. This kind of people usually are those who have ambition but hard to achieve, a lack of money to spend, and fast learner. She hardly got 13 people, but at the moment she talked about her intentions, with a righteous look, they said, “We are literate people, how  could we do such a dishonorable thing regarding our marriage.” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation.

Please big brother, she didn’t ask for murdering or flaming. This had nothing to do with degrading their honor and marrying into the family. ONLY read at azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

”I can give you money to take the exam. I can also make you someday bring honor to your ancestors.”

“Is he still a man, if he does such for money?!”

“……………..” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

This kind of conversation more or less was very similar with the other 12 people before him.

On the third day, Chu Zhu Yu thought to find some martial arts men. Those who practiced martial arts must be someone with a big heart and good brain. Talking about marrying into the family wouldn’t be a big matter. She was searching, and once she found the suitable candidate, she was about to speak, but who knew that the candidate was in conflict. Make a single move with hands, dozens of people flew out. azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

Chu Zhu Yu’s body became unsteady, fled in panic. She didn’t want that one day, when they became husband and wife and fought, she would be hit in such a way. azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

On the fourth day, she directly went to a host house (something like brothel where men serve women) and found one host (not selling body but selling art and skill such as dancing, singing, etc). “I will give you money for compensation if you get married into my family, won’t you?” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

That host suddenly knelt down, but what he said was different from what Chu Zhu Yu thought. It was far from a grateful act, ”Miss Chu, I beg of you to let me off. I don’t want to die early. I still wish to one day continue my family line, living a life like that of normal people.” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

“Marrying into my Chu family, won’t you have a normal life?” azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

“Don’t you know that your big uncle has spread the word in the center of Luo Yang City: those who are willing to marry into your family, let you bear a baby, would immediately die without ever having a son ah~!”

The man was crying miserably, crying till she felt embarrassed.

While walking out from the host house, Chu Zhu Yu felt her head getting double cause of frustration.

Is it really this hard to just make someone marry into her family? She only wanted children that would have the surname ‘Chu’. Even the father’s background didn’t matter to her anymore.

“Hey, have you heard the rumor? The Landlord2] Sun’s maid shamelessly seduced the master and worse, she’s pregnant too!” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

“Really shameless!” read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

“Who knows that this maid was not lucky enough. When she was found out by Landlord Sun’s wife, she was dragged to be beaten, but by coincided she is found pregnant. They said Landlord Sun will marry her as the seventh concubine.”

That is the gossip talked by those gossiping mid-aged aunties. After hearing such a conversation, it gave Chu Zhu Yu an idea and raised her hope. read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

“Become a maid, will it be easy to seduce the master and bear the child?” She got closer and shamelessly asked.

“See, you are a lady. How come you are asking such a question?” a mid-aged auntie lectured her.

“Aiya~ you lady, it is very normal if you don’t know,” said another a mid-aged auntie looked at Chu Zhu Yu

“This is what is called as proximity between the master and maid. In ages past, there were lots of servants who bore their master’s baby and finally became a concubine.” azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

Chu Zhu Yu’s eyes were sparkling after hearing the gossip. So, to become a maid, there is an advantage.

Fine! She decided to become a maid. Then she will work hard… bear the child, and about being a concubine, let others do it! read at azurro4cielo.wordpress translation. If read elsewhere, this chapter had been stolen. Stop read from theft!

“In this residence, the regulations are so many. All should be done carefully and in detail, even though you are a maid, you should be responsible and not hold delusions.” azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

“Yes! Yes!” Chu Zhu Yu nodded her head, feeling as if the head house keeper seemed to know her intentions. It sounded like a warning to her. azurro4cielo.wordpress.com

“But seeing your body has more meat, the general won’t mind it too.” The house keeper continued.

“General?” She came to be a maid so what is the relation with her body meat?

“Later you will become the maid who serves the general. Every month you will get two silver Liangs.” The head house keeper of Xiao gave the working contract, letting Chu Zhu Yu to make a thumb stamp.

What? Isn’t she going to work in the Kang residence? How could it be changed to the General’s residence?

Chu Zhu Yu got confused as she nodded her head. Running to the front of the residence, she looked at the plank’s written three words “The General’s Residence”. Then she gazed to the side shocked, and she looked. The next residence’s written two words were….
