I would like to give special thanks E.M. for the coffee and support!
Chapter 6 – General’s Young Lady vs. Transmigrated Illegitimate Younger Sister (5)
Jiang Lingzhen sat inside the carriage, which was slightly shaking as she gazed outside through the gap of the cloth.
Princess Wencheng was a devout believer of Buddhism. This time, because of her daughter’s misfortune, Princess Wencheng immediately brought her daughter to Tian Qi Dynasty’s most well-known temple, Qianlong Temple, to light an incense.
Gu Shengyin naturally was willing to go since Qianlong Temple had superb scenery. Even if she didn’t have a purpose of going there, she could take a short stroll. Not to mention, this time, Gu Shengyin came to Qianlong Temple to meet that legendary man.
Jiang Yunshan’s carriage also followed along behind them. It’s unknown of what method she used, however, she unexpectedly was able to persuade Princess Wencheng who had no affection for her at all.
Jiang Yunshan naturally had her own purpose. It was precisely here in Qianlong Temple that the original Jiang Lingzhen got the Crown Prince’s affection. She must now seize a trace of affection from the Crown Prince and must absolutely not allow Jiang Linzhen to have an opportunity to approach the Crown Prince.
Feeling the coolness in on her finger, Jiang Yunshan stroked the smooth jade bottle hidden in her sleeve, and the corners of her mouth hooked up into a determined-to-win smile.
(T/N: The idiom 势在必得 (shì zài bì dé) was used here. Means “to be determined to win”)
After Jian Lingzhen paid respect to Buddha with Princess Wencheng, with the excuse of getting fresh air, she informed Princess Wencheng that she would be taking her maidservants, Hu Zhu and Lin Liang, to the back of the mountains.
She was familiar with the story of this world and naturally knew that inside Qianlong Temple lived a person of status who went by the name Ju shi – the eldest prince, Ji Yu born from the Emperor and Empress.
Based on identity only, no other prince was more honorable than Ji Yu.
It was just that, not too long after Ji Yu was born, the Empress passed away because of an illness. As a result, the Emperor believed that this child was not his flesh and blood, therefore becoming unhappy. Ji Yu grew up in the palace until the age of ten before the Emperor sent him to Qianlong Temple under the guise of “replacing the Emperor to pray for the common people.”
If you aren’t already doing so, please read this at the original site, jiamintranslation.com.
In the original story, this eldest prince seldom appeared in any of the scenes in the story. He was truly a pure, quiet scholar who spent his life quietly in Qianlong Temple.
Gu Shengyin instructed Hu Zhu and Lin Liang to follow behind in the distance, and slowly appreciated the scenery in the back garden of Qianlong Temple by herself.
Although she had the memory of Jiang Lingzhen, she could only count as a spectator. Gu Shengyin had not really experienced what Jiang Lingzhen had seen or experienced. Gu Shengyin temporarily forgot the time due to the charming view of the back mountains of Qianlong Temple.
Hu Zhu and Lin Liang watched their Miss pass through a doorway from the distance and stop there. At a glance, they could tell that their Miss was more excited than usual since she had been shut indoors for a long time.
Although Gu Shengyin was curious, she did not forget her task and slowly walked towards the direction where her destination was.
As she headed inside, the surroundings became more tranquil. Gu Shengyin could only hear the breeze blowing, the bamboo leaves rustling, and her own footsteps.
Lin Liang pulled Hu Zhu’s sleeve: “Hu Zhu jie jie, should we advise the Miss to head back? This place is strangely quiet.”
Hu Zhu looked ahead at Gu Shengyin who was obvious in high spirits and slightly shook her head: “It’s rare for the Miss to be so happy; we shouldn’t disappoint her. Qianlong Temple is an important Buddhist temple, so it is unlikely for someone to dare to disturb this place.”
Gu Shengyin was walking in the bamboo forest feeling somewhat curious in her heart: For a person to be able to live in this kind of place for ten years, what kind of appearance would he have?
DUN DUN DUN! Low and behold! The long-awaited ML will arrive! Maybe the ML will be different than you’d expect~ 😉
Again, special thanks to E.M for buying me a coffee~
