GNU Ch 76 Part 1 – Reunion (I)

Where is eldest girl?

Upon Cheng Yuanjing’s question, people in Shou’an Hall finally noticed that Cheng Yujin was missing.

Many people sighed. Cheng Min just remembered that she hadn’t seen Cheng Yujin’s figure for a long time. She stood up and looked around: “I remember Jin jie’er1 was standing here just now. When had she been gone?”

Cheng Min’s eyes swept across the hall and found that Cheng Yujin was really not here. She frowned and beckoned at the servant girls around, asking: “When did eldest girl go out?”

The servant girl guarding the door stepped forward and answered: “Eldest Miss took her personal servant girl out just now. She said that Old Madam’s kitchen is very busy, so she went back to get something.”

“How long has it been?”

The servant girl frowned and thought for a while. She said vaguely: “Probably half an hour ago.”

Hearing this, Cheng Min became angry: “Eldest Miss has been away for so long. Why any of you doesn’t report it?”

The low-ranking servant girl lowered her head by this rebuke, not daring to argue. She actually felt wronged. Eldest madam, second madam, and two ladies were chatting happily. How dare they stepped forward and interrupted?

However, she didn’t dare to say this aloud. Second young lady was in the limelight now. For Yichun Marquis Manor, Cheng Yumo was a shiny object. How dare a mere servant girl said that the second young lady was wrong?

Cheng Yuanjing’s gaze silently went through the openwork floor-reaching panel towards the group of elegant women clad in golds and silvers. Anger suddenly began to burn in his heart.

Cheng Yujin had been gone for half an hour. Not only was nobody noticed, but even after being told, Qingfu Junzhu and Ruan-shi were still indifferent. Even Cheng Yumo just raised her eyebrows slightly, not in the least looked worried. Obviously, they all felt that there was no danger inside the manor. Cheng Yujin was cautious. Even if she went out alone, nothing would happen.

On the contrary, only Cheng Min, this married paternal aunt, came forward to question the servant girls. However, Cheng Yujin’s biological mother, adoptive mother, younger brothers, and sister were all unmoved like a stone.

Cheng Yuanjing remembered what the gatekeeper had just told him, that everything was okay these two days, and that the family was celebrating New Year happily. Was this what he meant to be ‘everything is okay’?

No one noticed Cheng Yujin’s absence for half an hour. It could be seen that before Cheng Yujin left, no one was talking to her or even paying attention at all. Otherwise, why nobody noticed such a big living person had been disappearing for so long?

Cheng Yuanjing remembered the previous family gatherings. Each time, Cheng Yujin would come to find him and talk. Cheng Yuanjing originally thought that Cheng Yujin was tired of socializing and came to hide quietly for a moment. Thinking about it now, wasn’t it actually because she had no place among her family?

A fire seemed to be ignited in Cheng Yuanjing’s heart. The spark fell on the dry grass and burning rapidly with a bang. He was anxious and angry, but more than anything, he felt a deep heartache.

How did she spend the whole New Year like this? Could it be that she has been alone these two days?

Just as Cheng Yuanjing thought, Qingfu Junzhu and Ruan-shi didn’t feel Cheng Yujin’s absence to be a big deal. Even Old Madam Cheng just nodded calmly. They began to speak a few sentences randomly, trying to return to the previous topic interrupted by Cheng Yuanjing’s sudden appearance. However, when they saw Cheng Yuanjing’s expression, they all fell silent.

Cheng Yuanjing did not deliberately exert coercion. However, his aura was so cold that nobody dared to speak. He looked at the servant girl who spoke just now and asked chillingly: “Who did eldest girl take when she went out? In which direction did she go?”

Cheng Yujin said that she was going back to get something, but Cheng Yuanjing didn’t believe it. Cheng Yujin used too many deceptive words that he could only believe fifty percent of anything she said.

The servant girl frowned again, thinking hard: “Miss took Du Ruo, and she seemed to walk westward.”

That was indeed the direction of Cheng Yujin’s Jinning Courtyard. Cheng Yuanjing finally felt slightly relieved. He turned around and was about to leave when Cheng Yuanxian and the others happened to come in.

Cheng Yuanxian and Cheng Yuanhan took Huo Changyuan and Second Master Xu into Shou’an Hall’s gate. Seeing Cheng Yuanjing came out, they were all stunned.

“Why are you back?” When Cheng Yuanxian saw Cheng Yuanjing, he blurted out in surprise. Right after speaking, he felt it wrong, so he hurriedly tried to rectify: “Why do you only come back today? Where did you go these days, even forgot to give mother a New Year’s greeting on the first day of New Year?”

In response, Cheng Yuanjing merely gave them a cold glance. Cheng Yuanxian became even more flustered by that gaze. Without waiting for Cheng Yuanjing’s reply, he quickly gave an excuse for his own accusation: “Although you are busy outside, you cannot forget your home. You must be tired on the road, go back and take a rest.”

Huo Changyuan watched Cheng Yuanxian making an accusation before rounding it up in an instant. Without others helping, he skillfully performed a one-person series of the complete process of being surprised, questioning, finding reasons, and finally rounding it all up.

Cheng Yuanxian clearly had done this exact process many times before.

  1. I think you need to find an editor. There are at least two times where Cheng Yuanjing is called Cheng Yujin and places where words don’t make sense.

    1. Fixed it. However, I don’t have plan to work with others, at least not for now. You can always put on editing suggestions on the comment though.

      1. there still some miss typo though. maybe you can re check all the grammar and character name once again.

      2. One more typo error in the paragraph .. ” Cheng Yujin remembered the previous family gatherings. Each time, Cheng Yujin would come to find him and talk.” I think its Cheng Yuanjing who remembered. By the way, just want to let you know that we absolutely love this book and thank you for your hard work in translating this novel for us. Have a great weekend.

    2. He’s gonna blow his top off if he finds out who Yujin is with. Hahaha. Thanks for the update!

  2. at this moment i wish that Yujin just directly go back to her own courtyard and act pitiful

  3. One mini-explosion now when he realizes she dosen’t belong to her family… and another one later when he realizes she is working on hooking a fish she shouldn’t.

  4. So what if you are angry? What are you going to do now?
    All I can see is that you haven’t paid enough attention.
    Thanks for the chapter!!!!

  5. Thank you for the chapter! What will happen next chapter, i want to know how cheng yuanjing reacted to cheng yujin have fun with other man hahahahah

  6. Many thanks
    He might just blow up when he finds out she’s currently with a certain someone… Aka her suitor

  7. You were missing when she tried to find you to help her resolve that pest trying to marry her. You cannot blame her for trying to find a solution to marry a more suitable candidate than the pest even if you pour a whole tank of vinegar. Blame yourself for not telling her how she can contact you in time of need and that you like her. Go settle the pest immediately than she may not need to go fishing assuming she thinks you are acceptable given our smart girl may not want to play in the royal murky water…ha ha ha

  8. I was laughing at this “Cheng Yujin used too many deceptive words that he could only believe fifty percent of anything she said.” but I am still a bit sad of how lonely Yujin was. Well, they are both lonely people.

  9. Hi Dear … Missed you, hence re-reading this chapter. You may want to amend this typo error… Thanks.

    That was indeed the direction of Cheng Yujin’s Jinning Courtyard. Cheng Yujin ( should it be Cheng Yuanjing ) finally felt slightly relieved. He turned around and was about to leave when Cheng Yuanxian and the others happened to come in.

  10. I have confidence in our ML, after the storm he is cooking up right now, he’ll have some time to reflect on how much he neglected Yujin’s affairs, she almost got either trapped by the Douche or “ruined” by his friend.
