Chapter 32 – To Leave

“My lady, we have returned.”

The people have yet to enter the room, but Qiao Er’s voice had already floated into the room first. Only, they had not yet entered the room when they encountered a restless An Yu Zhi by the doorway.

An Yu Zhi’s complexion was looking not so good. Just thinking about the fact that after seven days she will have to marry into the Fu palace, there was not a drop of joyous color on her face, only fear. “The matters that I asked you to inquire about, how goes it?”

Qiao Er did not notice and said happily, “Miss, the news of your marriage to Fu wang ye is circulating all throughout Jun Zi City. I heard that the emperor has also passed a decreed, not only is he allowing the marriage, but he also conferred many valuable things, just waiting for you when you marry into the Fu family.”

An Yu Zhi’s face suddenly turned white.

“Miss, what is wrong?” Xing Er was the first to notice her strangeness.

Qiao Er looked and also saw the white face of the young miss. “Miss, don’t scare us. Are you feeling unwell somewhere?” As she said this she quickly poured a cup of hot water for her.

An Yu Zhi did not take the cup but instead seized Qiao Er’s wrist. Her fingers turned white with the excessive force of her grip. “Tell me, if right now I say I will not marry… what will happen?”

“Miss, these words, you mustn’t say them. Otherwise there will be big trouble for the An family.” Xing Er was startled.

“That’s right, Miss.” Qiao Er also did not know that their young miss had such thoughts, and hurriedly took Xing Er’s side. “Fu wang ye is a member of the imperial family. To be able to marry him, that is the kind of fortune that every women dream about. Not to mention, you’re becoming the wang fei when you’re marrying into their family.”

Xing Er said earnestly, “Miss, the news of your and Fu wang ye’s marriage is well known. Even the emperor is starting to take notice. If you say you won’t marry, and the emperor gets angry, the entire An family will be charged with committing crime against the throne. You must not have such an idea.”

An Yu Zhi put on a stiff smile. “The two of you needn’t worry so much. It’s just a sudden thought I had, so I just said it out loud. It’s not like I will necessarily do it.”

The two maidservants breathed a sigh of relief.

Qiao Er resumed that smirking expression, “Miss, good thing you are only asking.”

An Yu Zhi’s eyes flashed.

Time flies quickly, in the blink of an eye another three days passed. Only four days away from the big wedding. Both sides were in full swing preparing for the wedding. Even An Zi Ran was busy to the point of not having time to practice his calligraphy. These past few days he’d been running back and forth between their courtyard and the Fu palace. Therefore he did not have time to pay attention to the situation with An Yu Zhi.

Before An Yu Zhi said she was just talking about it, but on that day when An Zi Ran went over to the Fu palace, she began to pack up. She sent away the more sensible Xing Er, and only Qiao Er was left. When she heard that the young miss wanted to escape from the marriage, she was shocked into a stupor.

“Miss, didn’t you say…”

An Yu Zhi went back on her words. For the first time, her pretty face revealed her determination. “I don’t want to marry. I’ve already figured it out. My life cannot be destroyed in Fu Wu Tian’s hands. I want to pursue my own happiness.”

These days she thought again and again, about the opera plays that she once saw with her father and mother. One scene had always impressed her. It was a woman who had always had a firm belief in bravely pursuing her own happiness. In the end, she obtained that happiness. She thought that she should also be like that woman in the opera play.

Qiao Er was shocked. “But Miss, if you just pack up and leave like this, what will happen to the young master and the An family?”

Seeing that the young miss had already packed her bags, she finally knew that the young miss was not kidding this time. She was overwhelmed. She felt that she must persuade the young miss. There may be some flaws with Fu wang ye, but his status was a noble. How many people wanted to marry him but would never have the chance. It was incredible that the lady wanted to escape the marriage!

An Yu Zhi raised her eyebrows. She knew she was making things difficult for her maidservant. She gnawed on her lower lip. “I believe Brother will find a way. Qiao Er, are you willing to go with me? If you don’t want to, I can’t let you tell my brother, so I’ll tie you up.”

[T/N: Damn~ where is all this steadfastness coming from. Not too long ago she was blushing and stammering things like “I’ll leave it all up to Brother.”]

“Miss…” Qiao Er’s face revealed her inner conflict.

For the first time, she saw the young miss so determined, and it looked like she had made preparations way ahead of time.

“Qiao Er, if you come with me, I won’t treat you poorly.” An Yu Zhi actually wanted someone to leave with her. There was peace of mind in two people relying on each other. So between the two maidservants, she chose Qiao Er, the one who was comparatively more impulsive.

Qiao Er hesitated for a while and eventually nodded in agreement. She knew that the jun wang would definitely lay blame on them. When that happens no one in the An family would get away. If she stayed she might get implicated. It would be better to follow the young miss.

The master and servant pair who agreed on the idea soon slipped from the back door.

By the time An Zi Ran returned to the courtyard the sun was fast setting towards the horizon.

As soon as he entered the door, he was keenly aware that the atmosphere was somewhat strange and seemed to be repressed.

Eventually he found Xing Er pacing back and forth. When Xing Er saw him it was like she saw the holy savior himself. She immediately rushed over. She opened her mouth and the first sentence that left her lips was, “Young Master, it’s not good, the young miss is gone.”

  1. Thank you for the chapter!

    I really can’t like the sister…she just had to say no when our MC asked if she wanted to marry. What is with this acting like she’s bravely saving herself from an enforced marriage.

  2. Now that the stupid ant has run away, it’s time for our OTP to start cultivating their feelings. Took long enough

    1. same!! lol I know we have lots to build up on, but gosh I really want them to get married, proclaim forever love and grow old soon
      it’s pretty sudden though, I hope we get a follow up on this so it doesn’t feel like the sister is just a plot device

  3. Thank you. I do find it strange why she suddenly changed her mind 🤔 maybe she heard rumours?

    Also really worried about her safety! 😓

  4. Ungrateful sister! So willful and selfish. She could’ve said no before when her brother asked her. Now she practically sacrifice her own brother. If this is not a bl but normal wuxia, the whole an family will be murdered and destroyed. So what she did is basically murdering her whole family. Fck her such a bitch! If I were her brother I will never forgive her for her betrayal. Wish she got attacked by bandits and died. I hope she won‘t come back and beg the brother in the future and ruin everything. She can just be cannon fodder character that will never appear in the future.

  5. Please excuse the bad words.

    This little b*tch!!!! How many time was she asked whether she was really sure if she wants to marry and the piece of sh*t was blushing and acting all coy. I honestly hope from the bottomest pit of my dark heart that this piece of sh*t quickly decomposes. It can be used as fertilizer compared to when it’s still wasting oxygen. “Wants to be the kind of heroine who attains her ow happiness.” My @ss! 👹👹👹

    1. I really wish I can like your comment ʚ♡⃛ɞ(ू•ᴗ•ू ❁)
      ♡ლ*♥✧ ♡✰ 。* ♥〜♡ 愛♥ ✿
      I feel really disappointed she ended up being this simple, I adored her simply for being MC’s little sister…

  6. I’m angry with how she literally abandoned her family to ruin and punishment. However. We would not get the lovely story that accompanies it without her so.

    Thanks. You crappy sister.

    And thanks for the chapter!!

  7. She really is a stupid and egoistical child who never thinks someting trough. Does she really believe she can survive easily on her own? I think she watched too many operas!
    Poor brother and the guys relying on him!
    Thank you!

  8. It’s just galling that she has the nerve to say that she will pursue her own happiness as if she had no choice in this marriage matter?????? Except her bro kept on asking if she was sure multiple times????? The level of selfishness is astounding. Thanks for the chapter! I’m ready for the BL portion now lolol

  9. the ads confused me because I thought the modern turtlenecks are what the lady wore running away LOL
    Xing Er has working brain!!!! praise the skies!!!! don’t believe her, asking means there are thoughts to do it!! …she’s very confused and uneducated about this, not knowing what to believe in and idealising her life based on a play… …. I get why your comments seem very disappointed in her before… I’m trying to justify her fears so much atm, (maybe she’s just very naive and misguided…) what did she hear of FWT, is he a blue bearded lord who eats bride and pull out their hair everyday? huh?? does he butcher them and fry them into spicy chicken and eat them as midnight snack??
    _“Qiao Er, if you come with me, I won’t treat you poorly.” lady, you have no money, no skill, nice face which means you will die or be used by people till you die. In your era lady upbringing won’t help you any outside your residence.. you could’ve stayed with your capable brother or married into powerful family, lmao, I’m just ,, _(┐「ε:)_ butt you, butt you so much for not thinking more of Ziran; even Qiao Er is more clear about the penalty of pissing off a royal
    what makes me more upset is if I’m on her shoes I’d also run away, but once you look from outside, it’s really dumb!!! please.. I hope An family won’t be killed before OTP gets married, this novel seems more comedic than that…
    Welp, onto Our (male) Wangfei’s marriage!

    1. also, also, how can she be so sure her brother, mere landlord and formerly wastrel is capable enough to go against the Emperor and his war general? I would think that he’s forcing himself to work harder and support the family and is under a Lot of Stress ಠ _ ಠ”

      1. Such a good point. We, the readers, know that AZR is very capable now, but she’s only known him as a wastrel. How can she say so confidently that he’ll figure things out?!

  10. Even when I know it’s gonna be like this, but seeing how this girl flee just like that makes me speechless (・_・) Wow, just wow. Ty 😀

  11. Uhg! What a horrible little sister! He asked her if she TRULY wanted to marry the Wang fei, and said Yes! Now she’s trying to paint herself as a victim! Pei! I hope it ends badly for her! I hope she’ll be jealous that she could of had it good.

  12. I’m so mad at her, he didn’t had even forced her. Don’t you give me this following your dreams talk shit, you’re backing away from your own oaths to let your family live up by luck, especially when the imperial family is txdyhoi dyuduf I just caaaaant gal, daamn

  13. I have a feeling she will regret it in the future 😊…
    After all, the ‘happiness’ that she pursue was actually already laid upon her! Or better, I hope she regret it (´;ㅿ;`) poor brother

    I can’t wait to see that General face when he saw it was An brother in the bridal chamber!! 😳

    Thanks for the chapter!

  14. She is going to get raped and either sold as a sex slave or become a prostitute.
    Life back then was not all sugar and unicorns.
    And more so for women.
    Noble woman actually lived better then peasant women and had more power and actual protection.
    So wow.
    This girl, she’s going to die.
