Chapter 21 The Scholar’s Wife

The fourth prince was full of unwillingness, “Why? Why don’t you be a woman who assists one’s husband and educate the children? Was it not good to be the eldest princess? Why do you want everyone in the world to know that we are not as good as you?! Why?!”

The eldest princess was indifferent to his crazy questioning, and just quietly watched him like watching a madman.

“Can’t you be more peaceful?! Can’t you just be a woman? What kind of throne do you want to fight for?”

The fourth prince pointed at her, and said fiercely: “It’s you! It’s because of you! Because you want to fight with us.
That’s why it has become what it is now.
It was all your fault! It’s because of your restlessness that our brothers fight against each other! If it wasn’t for you, if it wasn’t for you…”

The eldest princess answered calmly, “If there is no Me, all of you will still be like this.”

The fourth prince’s frenzied expression froze.

The eldest princess’s cold voice sounds unhurried: “This principle is the same as the failure and capture of Chen Weizong of the previous dynasty.
Chen Weizong blamed the failure of his decision-making on Ling Xuan’er, the favorite concubine he brought with him at that time, just like you now.
Blaming me as the source of all conflicts.
The    same cowardice, the same unqualified.”

The fourth prince turned his head in embarrassment, not daring to look into her cold and clear eyes.

The eldest princess looked at the supreme throne high above, and said lightly: “Actually, I can not fight.” 

The fourth prince turned his head in surprise, looked at her, and said in disbelief: “Really?”

The eldest princess looked at him indifferently and said calmly: “Fake.”

The fourth prince was angry: “You!”

“The previous me, could indeed not fight,” The eldest princess said lightly, “but now, you are all too stupid, I have to fight!”.

The fourth prince’s face flushed red, shaking with anger, can’t utter a word.

“Actually, you are all wrong.”

The eldest princess walked up slowly, looked at the fourth prince and said, “Father emperor never thought of passing the throne to me.
Because he thinks that my heart is too soft.
As the emperor, my methods are not ruthless enough.
My temper is too straightforward, which is not suitable for this position.”

She walked to the throne, and stretched out her hand to gently brush the dust on it, “Besides, this position is too high and too cold.
Likewise, this position is too heavy.
I’m too tired for that.”

The fourth prince: …

Anfei, who just stepped into the hall, was wearing armor and holding a silver spear.
She just heard this sentence and wanted to laugh.
Stand aside and secretly listen.

The eldest princess turned to face the fourth prince, raised her hand, and pointed her sword at his chest, “But why are you all so stupid? You really believed it after being instigated by outsiders, but you never took a good look at what father emperor’s actions.
Is your brain full of grass?! Such a clumsy strategy of attacking can’t be seen at all.
Still want to fight for the throne?”

The eldest princess sneered: “Do you think that the father emperor is really old and is about to die? ?”

Speaking of this, she rolled her eyes angrily: “The person who was alive and kicking and can kill a tiger with his bare hands, you actually believed that he would be poisoned in the palace?”

She looked at the fourth prince coldly, hating Iron can’t be steel: “Heh, are your brains flooded?”

The fourth prince was forced to step back by the princess’s questioning, and he was so embarrassed that he unable to respond.

The eldest princess looked calm, and her voice was as cold as usual: “Who is father emperor?”

She looked up at the plaque on the high seat, and her voice was powerful: “Emperor Wenjin, the eldest son of Emperor Jinyuan! The current emperor of the Great Jin Dynasty!”

Her slow and cold voice echoed in the entire hall: “He has lived in this palace city for fifty years!”

She turned to look at the fourth prince, and asked softly: “Tell me, who has the ability to poison him in this palace city? Except himself, who else in this world is so capable?” 

The fourth prince’s face was pale, “So, all of this is father emperor…”

The eldest princess frowned, she really can’t stand to see him so stupid, but as the elder sister, she still has the responsibility to clear the water in his mind.

She sneered, “What are you thinking? Would father emperor really poison himself just for such a broken chair? Only a fool like you would come up with such a stupid trick”

Anfei who was listening hurriedly covered her mouth, so as not to be heard by the eldest princess.

The eldest princess glanced at the bottom lightly and continued to say to the fourth prince: “Father emperor just released this news, and all of you can’t sit still.

This kind of news that you know to be false as soon as you hear it, and you still believe it? One after another rushing forward with enthusiasm? Isn’t it foolish? Isn’t it stupid?”

After finishing speaking, the eldest princess looked at him inexplicably: “If it weren’t for the fear that all of you would die, I really don’t want to come.”

The fourth prince really felt like his brain was smoking this time: Shame.

After being told by the eldest princess, he realized that he was really stupid!

The eldest princess was still calm: “You know what? The prince consort originally said that he would take me to a hot spring in the suburbs of the capital today, but you messed up the whole thing! I’m already very old, I don’t want to make a fuss, I just want to live a quiet and comfortable life, can’t I even do this? “

When the eldest princess said this, she paused and took a deep breath, “Everyone has their brains flooded.
Don’t mention the assassination every two days.
They were all wiped out by me.
Still didn’t know how to restrain.
I can’t believe all of you made such a big show.
You must feel itchy and want to get beaten, right? Also, after so many years, I seldom do anything, you probably forgot.

After that, the eldest princess threw the sword in her hand and plunged straight into Anfei’s feet.

Anfei was startled, and when she looked up, she saw the eldest princess looking at her indifferently and said: “You better know when to stop”

Anfei smiled, saluted respectfully, and exited the hall silently and wittily.

Fourth Prince: …So, this sister-in-law saw all his stupidity just now?! Oh! God! He wants to die (ㄒoㄒ)

The eldest princess turned her head and stared at the fourth prince indifferently, raised her hand and clasped it, squesszed her hand, making a crisp sound. 

The fourth prince saw it, and immediately acted cleverly, and hurriedly waved his hand and said: “Elder sister, No, we have all grown up! and already have sons and daughters…”

“You still know that you are already a father! Then why don’t you have a brain? “

After that, the eldest princess raised her hand and punched the fourth prince in the face, “You are such a big man, don’t you know how to think about the consequences when you do things? Dare to bring troops into the palace to usurp the throne?” 

The eldest princess looked indifferently, looked at him calmly, held him with her hand, and shot mercilessly: “I will let you wake up now…”


The tragic screams went straight to the outside of the hall.
Anfei stood at the door, holding a silver spear, shaking her head, and muttering: “Tsk tsk, what a tragedy! Growing up so big and still getting beaten by an elder sister.
Tsk tsk, what a shame! It was so pitiful!”

“If you think he is pitiful, why don’t you take it on his behalf?”

A cold voice sounded from behind, causing Anfei to straighten up in fright, and replied loudly: “This minister dare not!”

[Chen (臣) state official or subject in ancient China when addressing themself in front of sovereign]

The eldest princess glanced at her lightly, “You didn’t hear or see anything about what happened today, and there was no one inside.
Do you understand?”

Anfei bowed and saluted, “Yes, this minister understand!” 

The eldest princess stared at her and said flatly: “You know, I’m very narrow-minded.
When I get upset, I like to throw people into the criminal department.
I heard that the household department is also very busy and lacks people.
What do you think? Eight sister-in-law.”

Anfei immediately responded: “This minister is incompetent, and can do nothing but fight.
This minister understand.
Please rest assured, princess.”


The eldest princess turned and left holding the long sword.

Anfei let out a long breath, “Huh… I was scared to death.
Why is there no sound when walking? Tsk tsk, I still don’t have enough skills, I still have to practice…”


Ansu, Ammo, and Anli were leading the female soldiers to patrol around the palace city.
Seeing the eldest princess coming out, they all stepped forward to salute: “Princess.”

“Un” The eldest princess walked up to the second prince and sixth prince who was tied up.
Glancing at them, completely ignoring their vicious stares, she just asked Ansu lightly: “Where are the others?” 

“All of them were in the side hall for treatment.
Anfen was also in there.
According to the princess’s wishes, everyone was only wounded and no one died.”

“Well, very good.” The eldest princess nodded, and pointed to the second and sixth princes, “If they don’t obey the discipline, then beat them again, don’t beat them to death.
If worse comes to worst, just cripple them.  Anyway, our family can afford to support useless people, and my sisters-in-law won’t care about it.”

The second prince, the sixth prince: … Σ(° △°|||)︴

Ansu, Anmo, and Anli: …Princess, are you serious?

The eldest princess looked at them indifferently and said: “This is a metaphor.”

Ansu, Anmo, and Anli understood, and bowed in response: “Yes, this minister obey the order.”

The eldest princess turned to look at the majestic palace city, and said indifferently: “Since I have already taken this step, I will not retreat any further.
Today, it is time to change!”


In the Nuan Pavilion of Qianyuan Palace.

Emperor Wenjin was sitting on a soft couch playing chess, when the eldest princess walked in with such vigor.

The chief guard⎯⎯Guo Zhanggong saluted the eldest princess respectfully, and then led the others to retreat.

Emperor Wenjin looked at her with a calm expression, as if he couldn’t see the blood in her body “Come?”

The eldest princess looked directly at Emperor Wenjin indifferently, and remained silent.

Emperor Wenjin didn’t care, and continued to play chess on his own, and asked lightly: “How is it outside?” 

The eldest princess replied lightly: “No one died, and the injured have been settled properly.”

The emperor Wenjin squeezed the chess pieces in his hand and turned to look at her, raised their eyebrows and said, “No one died? Not even a single pawn died?”

“No.” The eldest princess looked at him indifferently, “Not a single one, they are all still alive.”
