Chapter 11 – General’s Young Lady vs. Transmigrated Illegitimate Younger Sister (10)
Princess Wencheng looked towards her husband and found that his eyes also showed bewilderment. This matter came too suddenly and caught the married couple by surprise.
Princess Wencheng took a deep breath and forced a smile: “Your Majesty, have you been too tired in the past couple days that lead you to start hallucinating?”
This was practically the brightest question of the day! Anyhow, Princess Wencheng must not watch her daughter enter the Eastern Palace, this pit of fire.

The Emperor’s mood dropped on the spot and glared at his younger sister: “I haven’t gotten bad eyes like an old man yet! Moreover, the Empress had the same dream these days. Are the Empress’ dreams also an illusion from overworking?”
This was his only younger sister born from the same mother; how else would the Emperor let her off so easily. If it was someone else, they could be accused of showing great disrespect for questioning the Emperor.
Looking at the Emperor’s determined face, Princess Wencheng and Jiang general felt cold inside.
Seeing that the Emperor was watching the both of them, Princess Wencheng reluctantly smiled, not forgetting her manners and said: “I wonder what Your Majesty intends to do.”
This time, the Emperor hesitated.
He looked at his sister with a rare apologetic and remorseful expression. When Princess Wencheng and her husband saw that expression, they started panicking in their heart. This matter, what other variable does it have?
The Emperor seldom had this sort of embarrassing moment. He looked at his younger sister: “Wencheng, there was something about this matter that I have not told you yet. No matter what, as a princess of the Imperial family, you must know that whatever decision I made was for the sake of the Imperial family.”
Princess Wencheng felt even more flustered in her heart: “Huang xiong (Royal older brother), what matter do you have in the end?” In a moment of desperation, she shouted the name she used to call her brother many years ago.
“In Our dreamland, the Moon did not actually come from your first daughter, Ah Zhen’s Youhuan courtyard. Rather, it came from a place called Haitang courtyard. I have already made a decision. The beginning of the next month on the eighth, the Crown Prince will welcome your Shu daughter as Ce fei (Imperial concubine) and enter the the palace.”
I would have put ‘The Empress and My…’ for grammatical reasons, but considering the status, the Emperor wins so… It sounded unnatural and bothered me so I changed it to ‘Our.’)
The Emperor deeply felt that this decision was somewhat unfair to Princess Wencheng and Jiang general. He was aware of the engagement between the Crown Prince and Langhua County Lord, Jiang Lingzhen. However, now the Crown Prince was welcoming her Shu mei to enter the palace instead. Tian Qi Dynasty never had two sisters serve one husband before, let alone replacing the marriage candidate. However, that way would bring humiliation to Jiang Lingzhen. As a result, the Crown Prince and Jiang Lingzhen’s engagement would undoubtedly be canceled.
Princess Wencheng was already dumbfounded at this moment. The Emperor was under the impression that she had a hard time accepting his words. Little did he imagine that she was not finding it unbearable, rather, she was actually pleasantly surprised.
Heaven truly helps the pitiful!
Princess Wencheng was shocked and delighted. She didn’t expect that one moment she was pacing back and forth worried about her daughter’s fate, and the next moment, she unexpectedly received this good news. Even the engagement had been solved that had troubled her for some time!
When she recovered, she heard the Emperor continue saying: “…I know this matter wronged Ah Zhen. I watched her grow up and hold a lot of affection for her, also hoping that she would marry into Our Imperial family. Ai, consider this to be Our last time to be unfair towards her. Tomorrow, I will send out a decree sealing Ah Zhen for Qingyang County Lord. I will bestow her the Qingyang County that is next to the land of your Wencheng.”
Princess Wencheng felt a little dizzy after being smashed by this large persimmon, the bestowal of land. The current dynasty County Lords didn’t have the qualifications to be conferred land and the princess also must rely on the degree of affection.
Princess Wencheng, as the former Emperor’s daughter from the first wife and the current Emperor’s sister from the same mother, had honor and glory. She owned her own restaurant. Yet, she didn’t expect the Imperial family to compensate her daughter this way!
A County Lord who was bestowed land was comparable to a royal princess, all must be respected!
Wow, exciting right? Gu Shengyin would have never thought she would have gifts coming her way even though she had been enjoying life.
Jiang Yunshan had been hoping to become the Empress, but with this…. *snickers*
