GNU Ch.53 Part 2 – Cooperation (II)

GNU sponsored chapters (5/5) by Sessidefiant, Amy, Nyurr, Carthun, Leier, GNU, and several anonymous sponsors at ko-fi. Thank you for your support!

The first part of today’s sponsored chapters is Ch 52 Part 1.

“Why wouldn’t anyone know?” Cheng Yuanjing looked at Ruan-shi indifferently. “Even if no one else knows, what does second Madam plans to do?”

Ruan-shi’s words seemed to be stuck in her throat, and she suddenly became speechless. It was the first time Cheng Yuanjing saw such an ignorant, yet fearless person. He no longer bothered to look at Ruan-shi again and directly confronted the Old Madam: “For a repectable person, one word is one promise. Let alone the last words of the Marquis. Marchioness, you are a lady with the honorary title conferred by imperial mandate, the person in charge of the whole Yichun Marquis manor. Could it be that Marchioness treats propriety as nothing?”

Cheng Yuanjing obviously ignored Ruan-shi, but Ruan-shi’s face flushed with shame. At this age, Old Madam Cheng had seen many kinds of things, but she couldn’t understand why this shu son had such a strong aura. However, the Old Madam still needed to maintain her prestige. She paused for a while and slowly said: “Naturally not. As long as it is the word from the Old Master, whether or not outsiders know, this old woman will do her best to follow his intention. Since the Old Master has made arrangements for his two granddaughters before his death, this old woman has nothing to say.”

Seeing the scene before her eyes, Cheng Yujin blinked. She had spent so much effort and even made soft threats, but Old Madam Cheng refused to relent. Unexpectedly, Cheng Yuanjing only said a few words, and Old Madam Cheng immediately back off.

Cheng Yujin originally planned to find a chance to act, but now she found out that Cheng Yuanjing had arranged everything in an orderly manner, and she didn’t need to do anything at all. Since she remembered things, it was the first and only time in her life that she didn’t need to worry about anything, and didn’t need to do anything either, because someone was here to protect her.

Cheng Yujin couldn’t tell what kind of feeling she had now. She sighed softly. It seemed she owed Cheng Yuanjing once again.

“That’s good.” Cheng Yuanjing said, “Since it’s so, let make it clear once and for all. Someone come, go and invite Shizi and eldest Madam here.”

Cheng Yujin frowned and said softly, “Ninth Uncle, I’m afraid that my mother is currently busy and cannot come here.”

“Use my name to invite them.” Cheng Yuanjing didn’t care at all. He added: “And the second girl, call her over too.”

Cheng Yujin silently watched how Qingfu Junzhu, who was supposedly very busy, arrived quickly at Old Madam Cheng’s courtyard. Afterward, the rest also came.

In front of everyone, Cheng Yuanjing said: “Before, I said that I have no intention to take a share of the manor’s property, but the Marquis insisted. The eldest girl reminded me not to refuse an elder’s kindness. Since I don’t want to let down Marquis’s intention, I decided to give this share to Eldest girl. Sooner is better than later, since everyone happens to gather here, I will do the transfer now.”

Afterward, Cheng Yuanjing ordered the guard to bring out a brocade box. He then beckoned to Cheng Yujin. Cheng Yujin tentatively approached. Cheng Yuanjing put the box onto her hand and said: “I’ve ordered people to make a register. The items and quantities of gold and silverware, fabrics, porcelain, and other things are written clearly on the register book. In addition, there are land deeds and silver banknotes. You can check it yourself. If there is no problem, take it away.”

Cheng Yujin clearly felt everyone’s gaze condensed on the box in her hands. Qingfu Junzhu and Ruan-shi’s eyes almost burst into flames. Before, Cheng Yuanjing said that he would give the one-third that was his share to Cheng Yujin, but Qingfu treated it merely as an excuse. Although it was under Cheng Yujin’s name, wasn’t it actually their first branch’s property? Unexpectedly, Cheng Yuanjing really gave his share for Cheng Yujin publicly.

When Cheng Yujin got married, she would take those things with her. How could Qingfu be willing seeing so much money flew away?

Cheng Yujin felt the heaviness of the brocade box in her hand. The anxiety in her heart seemed to be suppressed. Cheng Yujin’s brain quickly made clear of Cheng Yuanjing’s intention. She smiled. Under Qingfu Junzhu’s gaze, she handed the box to Ruan-shi and said: “Second aunt just said that there are many children in the second branch. Not only two younger brothers, but also second sister. Since second sister is going to marry high, it’s only proper for the public account to distribute more money to the second branch, isn’t it? I have never been involved with the public account and don’t understand this kind of household management matters. But since second aunt isn’t satisfied with the distribution and second sister’s dowry is also not enough, then second aunt may take these things for the second branch.”

Qingfu Junzhu was already suffocated with dissatisfaction. Hearing Cheng Yujin said that Ruan-shi complained about the unfair distribution and that the second branch demanded more money, she immediately became annoyed.

Just now, Qingfu simply didn’t want to bother fighting for a dowry for someone else’s daughter. But she didn’t expect that Ruan-shi actually badmouthed her during this time. Seeing Cheng Yujin’s tone, it seemed that the Old Madam also didn’t object? Qingfu was seethed with anger. Ruan-shi, this bitch, even hinted that she wasn’t fair when managing the public account and actually wanted to take more share.

Most particularly, the phrase ‘many children’ straightly poked Qingfu Junzhu’s anger.

This bitch, who is she scolding at?!

  1. It looks like Cheng Yujin has learnt a thing or two from the Old Madam! 🙂 Just a few words, and Qingfu Junzhu is now ready to fight Ruan-shi to death over the valuables.
    And the tacit understanding between Cheng Yuanjing and Cheng Yujin is really good. The adults present should be ashamed of themselves – these two youngsters are playing them like so many fiddles 😉
    Thank you for the mass release and happy holidays to you too <3

  2. Hahahahaha smack that hornets nest and force Junzhu to fight it out with Ruan-shi 🤣 Junzhu has been ripping off the family account for years yet she’s offended that she’s accused of shorting the Second household 😆😆😆 thief offended at being called a thief 🤣

    Thanks for the chapter 😏

  3. Ahhh. So he’s gonna “die” and take up his crown prince position. Then he has one year to clean up the court and propose. 🤔
    I’m excited on how things will turn out. Thanks for the update! 🙂

  4. Thanks for the update and the sponsored chapters! ❤️

    Now let’s see how those two fight for the share that was never meant to be theirs but that they still eye like hyenas.

  5. What an intriguing start! Possibly a time jump? I don’t usually enjoy harem intrigues but this author is doing it well. Thanks for the chapter translation!

  6. What happened to the duke who said he is going to propose the same day to the elder young miss?
    I hope he doesn’t gets the chance to do so though. Hehe.

  7. “Since she remembered things, it was the first and only time in her life that she didn’t need to worry about anything, and didn’t need to do anything either, because someone was here to protect her.”

    Haha see, she feels protected, I knew that’s what she’s always wanted, being by yourself and always only relying on yourself is exhausting and the reason she wants to marry a rich and powerful man is so that she feels the protection that it brings it seems so that no one can order her around and she doesn’t have to suffer.

    I feel for Yujin so much …. First time in your life you’ve been able to feel like that? …… I really want her to be happy guys.

  8. “When Cheng Yujin got married, she would take those things with her. How could Qingfu be willing seeing so much money flew away?”

    Serves her right for not coming to fight for her daughter’s dowry.

  9. I truly hope this tramp @ss slut of a sister doesn’t get anything extra. She’s already taken away her man and her sister’s reputation.
