Chapter 10: To Strike with a Muck-Rake

Young Master Zhang Juwang, drunk and a little unsteady on his feet, stood arms crossed, challenging Weiying to play a game of up-pricing. It was a game that many young masters and misses enjoyed playing in order to prove their superiority in wealth and status – as well as annoy the victim.

Chapter 9: As if Drunk Dumb

A wail arose from a private room in a wine parlor in Zuichu.

Chapter 1: Beauty that Sinks Fish and Fells Geese

“… His Highness the Crown Prince has heard of Jiang Yueying’s beauty and was pleased to see her. The Imperial Edict will be sent tomorrow afternoon to show the Crown Prince’s favor towards Jiang Yueying to take her as his seventh concubine. Be prepared to receive it!”

Jiang Fuzhen’s Household bowed the eunuch and guards out of their manor, and then all chaos broke out within. (more…)
