  • Loved your gifts team Nyanovels and thanks for the chapter. Its getting really interesting in the palace right now, with the Emperor back on his throne. Great to know that ZW is aware that MSY is all about trading to get the emperor to assist her father. In a way, I really pity SHR who is still unaware that all her treasonous acts are within the emperor’s and empress dowager’s knowledge and is lulled into a false sense of security. The pride and arrogance that she displays is going to be soon shot-down by Shao’ze. What a way to end your life’s dreams and ambitions…. here’s cheering the team and putting in my request to “Santa” Nyamachi…. Since lil’ me have been good all through the year, may I get a few more chapters to read for Christmas? Here’s wishing you a merry X’mas and a happy new year!!!

    • SHR has been very bad all year. She’s on Santa’s naughty list. She’s not getting and good presents and neither a lump of coal. What she’s getting is retribution. And for our wonderfully good MSY, she of course is on Santa’s good list. She’ll be getting lost of love and pampering to come.

      • Typos: “any good presents” and “lots of love”

      • Definitely Becca! I’m looking forward to the pampering hehe

    • Hey Solitaire! Thanks for all your support throughout this year <3 It's always nice to read your comments. Merry Christmas~ (You got your wish :3)

      Yeah, I pity Shen Hui'ru too. She thinks she has control of the situation when really she's almost like a puppet, acting in accordance with their schemes - first by her father and now by the Emperor and Empress Dowager... This reminds me of the idiom 螳螂捕蝉黄雀在后 the mantis stalks the cicada, unaware of the oriole behind.

      • In a way, SHR would have been just like Emperor Wu Zhao the only female monarch in the history of China had all her schemes come to fruition. Just imagine, all that effort she’s been putting in practicing to write the way the emperor did. Her honey trap must be up to a black widow’s level, that Emperor ZW willingly indulged her and protected her. SHR is utterly ruthless in her pursuit to helm the country. Thanks for the Christmas gift delivered on Christmas, team Nyanovels. Bless you,.

  • LOL sangyu has the emperor’s wrapped around her little finger and she doesn’t even know it.
    i can’t wait for him to show that the real emperor’s back and actually started pampering her in front of everyone.
    once again thanks for the release translation team 😀

    • Bruh, it’s more like she knows he’s the real emperor but still she doesn’t know that he’s repenting. So she still believes that he’s only acting towards her. The emperor knows this and hence he’s trying to make her feel good but his earlier wounds were too deep & moreover, he doesn’t outright tell that he was A’Bao. So, she remains guarded & he keeps wasting his time.

      Honestly, given the supposed level of devotion he has & the fact that he knows how smart & wise Sangyu is, he should have a heart-to-heart with her and atleast try to pursue her properly. But no, he’ll be all secretive & “I will win her heart through my actions” BS.

      That’s one reason why the ancients had so many drama/angst/easily broken relationships. Talking, especially reconcilliation, is so so so much important in ANY relationship, but people are too fucking arrogant to use it. I’m not saying that only talking helps, but atleast it sets the foundation for future actions to build upon, mending bonds faster.

      • lol but he can’t tell her that he was A’bao.
        he went through so many humiliating moments as a dog that I can understand why, as an emperor, he wouldn’t want to disclose it no matter what.
        right now he really has no choice but to slowly regain her trust through action.

        • Dude, even if it was humiliating, he knows how much love she has for A’Bao. If not everything, he can atleast explain some parts to her. See, actions can always be misinterpreted, especially when you have a history of being hurtful.

  • I just realised that we’re a little over half way done with this novel, I’m both happy and sad hahaha!
