Dear readers, don’t forget to thank Silhoutte for this part’s translation. 🙂


Chapter 8: Old court case of gold, Part 3 of 4

(Translation credits: Silhoutte)

Gu Yun was happy and excited to see Zhuo Qing but she still wanted to tease her and see her reaction, she didn’t expect that she would actually take her arm to insert a needle.

At the exact moment the long needle was about to pierce her arm, Gu Yun quickly opened her eyes, grabbed the hand that wanted to hurt her and growled: “You really want to pierce ah!”

Zhuo Qing gently lifted her eyebrow and replied : “What do you think?!” She finally woke up!

Time inexorably ticked away, there were still no movement inside the room, Su Yu impatiently waited in the courtyard walking to and fro, Jing Sa led an imperial doctor into the courtyard and in a clear voice he announced: “Miss Qing, the imperial doctor has arrived.”

“I’m busy inserting needles; do not come in to disturb me.” An icy female voice answered from inside the house.

The imperial doctor stood stiffly at the edge of the door, glanced towards Jing Sa, Jing Sa waved his hand away to him, the imperial doctor stepped back a few paces, he dared not enter and disturb her, thus several people could only wait in the courtyard.

After a while, the door finally opened, Zhuo Qing walked out.

“Well?” Su Yu took a large stride over, his face anxious, Zhuo Qing’s eyes glinted, this behavior couldn’t be how a brother-in-law should treat his sister-in-law!

Zhuo Qing glanced down and replied: “She is awake, but her body is still relatively weak. She needs to be treated with the needles once every seven days and after ten times, her illness should not recur within one year.”

“I’ll send her over after seven days.” As long as it can be treated, then it is good. Once Su Yu finished speaking, he then went inside the room and soon after four soldiers lifted the palanquin with Gu Yun leaving the place.

Through the veil, the two made eye contact communicating to each other to take care and then glanced away.

After having seen Qing, Gu Yun’s heart settled down since their meeting, time is short, they only had time to apprise each other of their current situations. Qing asked  Gu Yun to help  investigate a murder case involving the General Manor, which one thought that was an ordinary murder case, but who would have thought that it actually led to a sensational case of missing gold.

It was reported that three years ago, there was a theft at the state treasury, 1,000,000 taels gold vanished without a trace overnight. Investigations revealed that the then Minister of Revenue colluded with outsiders to secretly transport the gold. The Ministry of Justice dispatched soldiers to hunt in all directions yet nothing was discovered hence this case was left unresolved. It turned out that the murder victim was an employee of the Ministry of Justice. He was instructed by the then Assistant Minister to aid the northwest bandits to stash the gold in the underground caves of a river until after the whole hoo-ha was over, the bandits then again transported the gold away.

Just like that the imperial court was robbed of 1,000,000 gold taels. Yan Hong Tian was not one to let this case unresolved hence an imperial edict was sent, the content of which caused Su Yu to explode in anger.

Gu Yun  reclined in a wooden chair, watching Su Yu staring at the imperial edict held in his hands and raged, “to recover all the gold before the celebration?! It’s only two months away and to travel to and fro from the northwest Pei city will take 20 days, the emperor wants us to solve this matter in a month? Which is unlikely, right?!”

Su Ren was much calmer compared to Su Yu  and said, “If time is not of essence, the emperor would not send the Su army to go.” The gold in the state treasury which was transported to the northwest, was used by the bandits to buy arms to enlarge their defence, this being the case, it would be strange if the emperor is not angry!

Throwing the edict back into the brocade box, Su Yu snorted: “Big brother went out drinking, if there are no problems, then he probably won’t be back for three to five months, what shall we do?”

To send an army to destroy these bandits was such trivial matters that need not involve Big Brother to personally go hence one does not know the emperor’s thoughts!

The decree stated Su Ling is appointed the commander, if Big Brother would not go then this was defying the imperial edict, Su Ren thought carefully then said: “It does not matter. Tomorrow I’ll take thirty thousand elite soldiers to rush ahead to the northwest and at the same time will order some soldiers to search for Big Brother. Then, he can travel directly to northwest, and all of us will the converge at the city of Pei, this will not be defying the edict.”

Gu Yun excitedly asked: “Will you be starting out tomorrow?”

Su Ren paused, and did not answer her immediately, Su Yu heard her question and anxiously asked: “Don’t tell me you want to go too?!”

“Yes.” Gu Yun nodded her head.

Su Yu immediately shouted: “No!” Marching to war is a very dangerous matter, it is not a game!” She is just a woman who knew a little bit of martial arts yet she wanted to join in the excitement.

“Did I say that I am going there to play?” Though that was one of her important reasons. Since the night raid battle ended, she was bored to tears in the General Manor.

“You!” Su Yu was mad!

“Sister-in-law if you must go, then, starting tomorrow you set out with the army since setting out alone is not good.” Her character is such that it is virtually impossible to forbid her and not let her go, he might as well put her in a position where she could be controlled to a certain extent. Then in Pei city, she would become Big Brother’s responsibility!

“Second brother!” Su Yu glared at him.

“Good.” Gu Yun gladly accepted.

This has become a foregone conclusion, yet Su Yu was not convinced and snorted: “Then I will go, too!”

Patting him lightly on the shoulder, Su Ren smiled and said: “The celebration is approaching, if you do not stay back, the General Manor would be without a master!”

Since Su Ren has said this, Su Yu had no choice but to stay back. He felt very dissatisfied and left in a sour mood.

Su Ren’s eyes flashed a different hint of color, it seemed that third brother couldn’t be allowed to have any more contact with Qing Mo!

  22. To all fellow lovers of GY and SL, you are most welcome. No thanks needed as most are here for the love of C novels and it is Inno who started it all…….good for you Inno. No worries on the name spelling my pen name is quite a mouthful.

    Noted that majority likes SY but I like SR and he has an ever shorter air time than SY! There is a few events that led many to witness SYs love for GY ……it will come later in the novel…..

    SL will appear soon but he is a man of few words and theres bound to be combustion when both leads meet again.

  26. This is a fun read but did the author forget she’s supposed to be pretending sick? That she’s suppose to get needle treatment once every 7 days from her sister? That the author just stated it take 20 days to get to that city one way? I’m a bit confused.
