Ch8 – Ye Shi

“I heard that you returned the Clear Water Sword you bought… why, are you very short of money?” Mu Yuanfeng was just about to leave the door when he turned his head and asked as if he had just remembered something.

Mu Chen smiled awkwardly, lowered his head, and wiggled his fingers with embarrassment, saying, “I’m indeed a little short of money lately, and I don’t think the sword is worth that price anyway.” 

Mu Yuanfeng smiled gratefully and said, “If you think the sword is not worth that price, it means you are starting to grow up.”

Mu Chen lowered his head, his cheeks tinged with red.



“Here are 500 yuan stones, spend more time on cultivation, don’t spend all day doing nothing, fooling around with your friends.” Mu Yuanfeng scolded.

Mu Chen nodded his head and said, “Father has taught me well.” 

Mu Yuanfeng looked at Mu Chen a little more and left.

Seeing Mu Yuanfeng leave, Mu Chen let out a sigh of relief.

“Young master, this is Mo City and the Mu family is one of the three great families in the city.
Your fiancé is Mu Chen, the young master of the Mu family.
If you go to the Mu family, you will have something to fall back on in the future.” Chen Da said.


Ye Shi said with a lack of interest, “The marriage contract between me and Mu Chen was decided by my grandfather, but now that my grandfather has passed away and I have been driven out of the family by my father, it is hard to say whether the Mu family will acknowledge it.” 

Chen Da’s face darkened, “Ye Xun, this ungrateful guy, how much did madam pay for him in the first place, but he treated you like this just to please a few foxes.”

Ye Shi shook his head and said, “Alright, Uncle Chen, let’s not talk about this.”

“Young master, the Mu family is a respectable family and will not easily break the contract.” Chen Da said comfortingly.

“Even if the current head of the Mu family, Mu Ke, does not intend to break the contract, Mu Chen will not necessarily approve of the marriage.
A twisted melon is not sweet.
I have hands and feet, and I can support myself.
There is no need to beg for someone to marry me.
If Mu Chen can’t see me, then let’s forget about the marriage.” Ye Shi bit his lip and said. 

Chen Da looked at Ye Shi and said, “Young master, don’t talk nonsense.
You are a twin child with no one to depend on, it is too dangerous to go out and show your face.”

Ye Shi said with disdain, “What are you afraid of? Who will like me when I look like this?”

Chen Da said helplessly, “Young master, don’t say that.” Ye Shi’s appearance is not ugly, it’s just too rigid.
All men like delicate and soft little girls, but Ye Shi was born with sword-like eyebrows and starry eyes, making him look too rough.

“Uncle Chen, since we’re here, let’s go and find out who Mu Chen is before we make our plans.” Ye Shi rolled his eyes and said. 

Chen Da nodded and said, “Good, the old master's eyes must be good.“

Ye Shi’s face was tinged with a little red and Chen Da couldn’t help but smile.
Although Ye Shi looked like a mature young man, he was only thirteen years old and he still held some expectations for his marriage partner in his heart.



/petty’s notes: 

剑眉星目 (Sword eyebrows and starry eyes): Generally describing an appearance that is valiant, upright, and heroic.
This is how generals were described in ancient times.

People with long sword eyebrows and starry eyes are generally honest and have a straightforward personality.

Something like this:

In the text, Chen Da is basically saying that Ye Shi looks too manly for a twin child that should have more delicate and soft features, like women. 


random info:

剑眉星目 is used to describe generals.

铁面剑眉,兵权万里 (phoenix eyes and sword eyebrows) is how emperors were described instead.
