Well, before I start the second chapter translation, I would like to thank suteki for her kindness to introduce my blog and the readers who are give their time to visit my blog. I will try my best to give and share good translation especially for the C-novel.
If you guys find out first chapter funny, I promise you that second chapter even funnier because our female lead such fills with many naive idea about getting married and her ways to protect her family business for being taking over by her big uncle and brother cousin.
Yue Qin tea house is one of the famous and well-known tea house in the center of Luo Yang city. Ten years ago, it was only a rotten and broken tea house, when the business was about to shut down, the owner’s daughter Chu Zhu Yu spent a few years to make the business success again.
Good tea of Zhu Yu isn’t the only factor that makes the Yu Qin tea house different compare to the others tea house but it is also because the fresh entertainment. Few days ago, it even introduced new variant of teas. Talking about the tea house, it became one of well-known place where the scholars gather and also make the tea business get into limelight.
At this time, on the Chu’s family big lobby, Chu Zhu Yu can’t find anyone with happy expression.
Wearing the yellow chiffon dresses makes her well-develop build body more rounded, ay ay it is plump and absolutely not fat. A pair of black sparkling eyes, directly glaring toward two persons, “Big uncle, what do you mean?”
“Zhu Yu, this Yue Qin tea house is Chu family business and your surname is Chu, however you are a girl, in the future you will be married and your children won’t be named Chu as the surname. How about handing the business over to the family who obtain the Chu name?” being judge by big uncle Chu Xiang who stroke his mustache which looked alike mountain goat.
Chu Xiang son’s, Chu Mu Cai who sounded alike the opera singer said : ” Cousin, My father willing to pay one thousand of silver money in order to take over your tea house business, it is something extremely best for you so what makes you to think again?”
“Humph,” Chu Zhu Yu sneezing this is about her tea house, her tea house is more valuable than that small silver offer. “The time when grandfather passed away the one who was asking for separation was you guys and grand father had so many business you guys just gave this Yue Qin tea house for my father and I, and now when the tea house business earning some money you guys are thinking to get some share! and now let me ask you if today I advertise one thousand of silver money to sell the tea house, how many people will come and buy?”
Chu Mu Cai face changed, ” The business of Chu family is not something you can sell when you want to sell!”
“The lease is still in my hand, how can I not sell?” Chu Zhu Yu looked with supercilious, she has seen shameless people, but never met some alike her brother cousin and her big uncle kinds.
“Or cousin, you want to meet in court room?” Chu Mu Cai threatening. “As the saying goes, the normal civil people won’t pick a fight with the government officer, cousin did you forget my status or second uncle it’s better you tell her.”
The person Chu Mu Cai called as second uncle is Chu Zhu Yu’s father, Chu Sheng.
Chu Sheng character is soft, he pulled his daughter to his side, speaking with low tone ,“Yu er, your bother cousin is the imperial scholar whom obtain seven rank official government not to mention he is an officer who managed the scholar, we can’t piss him.”
“Father!” Chu Zhu Yu with comforting tone, what kind of status Chu Mu Cai own she knows well. “It’s not like I am greedy for money, I feel dissatisfied, the time when grand father passed away, mother also passed away, big uncle and the rest didn’t even have small sympathy for us. That time when the tea house was in crisis, with hardship we went through and now they want to take advantage from us, not that easy!”
“Yu Er, do you have any idea?” Chu Sheng knows his daughter might has ideas.
Chu Zhu Yu laughed and turned her head, and looked at Chu Xiang and Chu Mu Cai, ” Big uncle, brother cousin, you guys are worrying if one day I get married, born children who has different surname and worrying that the Chu’s business will be taken over by someone not Chu’s?”
Father and Son nodding head and said : “yes.”
“it is simple matter.” her lips curved upwards and smile so obviously.
“How to solve?”, the father and son asking.
“I will find someone who wants to get married into this family, won’t it do?” Believing that She, Chu Zhu Yu can find someone in the center of Luo Yang city who wants to marry her with single call. There will be many to pick.
Four corner of world, Chu Zhu Yu finally comes to understand, her ideas to make man married her and get into her family isn’t something easy.
On the first day, she went to twenty seven match making door, once they heard Miss from Chu family is finding someone who willing to marry into her family none of the match-making ladies want to take the business even she doesn’t set high standard. speak frankly, her requirement not really high. She wants a man who able to do accounting, who can enter the kitchen and serving, understand about tea and it’s quality, the most important out of those, he should someone very healthy…
But before waiting her to finish all her requirement, those match-making ladies have kick her out from door.
On the second day, Chu Zhu Yu is trying to find some literate poor guy in the center of Luo Yang city, The category, ambitious person, Lack of money to spend, fast learner, hardly she got 13 persons once she said about her intention, by looking righteousness they said : “We are literate people, how we could do such dishonor thing about the marriage.”
Please big brother, she doesn’t ask for killing people or flaming, this is nothing to do with degrading honor and married into family.
” I can give you money to exam, I also can make you someday bring the honor to the ancestor.”
“Is it still man, if doing such for money!”
This kind of conversation more or less very similar with the others 12 person before.
On the third day, Chu Zhu Yu thinking to find some martial art men. those who practicing martial art must be someone who has big heart and good brain. talking about married into family won’t be big matter. She is searching, once she finds the suitable candidate, she is prepared to speak but, who knows that the candidate was in conflict. swishing hand, dozen of people flying out.
Chu Zhu Yu body becomes unsteady, she escaped. She doesn’t want that one day, when they become husband and wife and fight, she being hit in such a way.
On the fourth day, she directly goes to host house (something alike brothel where men serve women) and find one host (not selling body but sell 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?”
That host suddenly knelt down but what he said was different from what Chu Zhu Yu thought, it far from gratitude act : ” Miss Chu, I beg you to let me off. I don’t want to die early. I still wish one day to continue my family line, living the normal people life.”
“Marrying into my Chu family, won’t you have normal life?”
“Don’t you know that your big uncle has spread the word in the center of Luo Yang city, those who willing to marry into your family, let you bear baby, will immediately die without ever having son ah~!”
The man crying miserable, crying till she feels embarrassed.
While walking out from the host house, Chu Zhu Yu felt her head paste into ball.
Is it really hard just making someone to marry into her family? she only wants children that surname Chu. Even the father of children background isn’t matter anymore for her.
“Hey, have you heard the rumor? The Sun’s family maid shamelessly seduced the master and the worst, pregnant too!”
“Who knows that maid was not lucky enough, when she was found out by Sun Yuan Wai’s wife, she was dragged for being hit but she still is pregnant. They said Sun Yuan Wai will marry her as the seventh concubine.
That is gossip talked by those gossiper ladies. After hearing such conversation, giving Chu Zhu Yu idea and raise her hope.
“Become maid? will it easy to seduce the master and bear the child?” She gets closer and asking.
“See, you lady. how come you asking such question?” an Ahjumma lecturing her.
“aiya~ you lady, it is very normal if you don’t know.” Said another Ahjumma.
“This is what is called as proximity between the master and maid. In ages there were lots of servant who bears their master’s baby and finally became concubine.”
Chu Zhu Yu eyes sparkling after hearing the gossip, so to become maid there is an advantage.
Fine! she decided to become maid. Then she will work hard… bear the child, and about being concubine, let others do it!
The next day, Chu Zhu Yu standing in front one of middle age house keeper.
“In this resident the regulation is so many, all should be done carefully and in detail, even though being maid, you should be responsible and don’t hold into delusion.”
“yes! yes!” Chu Zhu Yu nodding her head, feeling as if the head house keeper seem to know her intention and it sound alike warning for her.
“But seeing your body more than meat, the general won’t mind too.” The house keeper continue.
“General?” She comes to be maid so what is the relation with her body meat?
“Later you will become the maid who serve the general. Every month you will get two Liang silver.” The head house keeper of Xiao gives the working contract. Letting Chu Zhu Yu to make thumb stamp.
