Chapter 328: Palace Banquet, Southern Princess (Part 1)

Su Cha indeed said so many things, but Lin Chujiu actually listen to all of it. Knowing that Xiao Tianyao didn’t deliberately want to take her life, Lin Chujiu’s heart was comforted. But in the end, she couldn’t accept to make her life difficult.

Lin Chujiu knew that walking side by side with Xiao Tianyao will be full of difficulties. But, it doesn’t mean, he could use and hurt her.

She felt that their relationship right now was good. She could relax, so she doesn’t want to change it.

She doesn’t need to consider Xiao Tianyao’s dissatisfaction. She doesn’t need to worry about if Xiao Tianyao was angry. She can live the way she wants. Lin Chujiu really regarded Xiao Wangfu now as her home. She even had a mood to call the people in the front yard to build her a swing. And not just any ordinary swing, but a swinging wicker chair, where she could nest under the sun.

When Housekeeper Cao heard Lin Chujiu’s request, he personally brought a craftsman over. He also asked Lin Chujiu if she wanted to plant flowers in her yard.

“No, it’s alright.” Lin Chujiu likes to see some flowers, but she has no time and energy to take care of them. So, she was very satisfied with her current green lawn.

This is much easy to take care of.

Housekeeper Cao didn’t persuade Lin Chujiu. In the afternoon, people started installing the exact swing Lin Chujiu wanted. The swinging wicker chair was crafted well, it was very strong. Two people sitting together will have no problem at all.

In order to have shelter under the rain, Housekeeper Cao also made preparations and put a simple wooden stall, which could be planted with some vine plants.

Seeing the beautiful swinging wicker chair in front of him, Housekeeper Cao couldn’t help but fantasize. Inside his mind, their Wangye and Wangfei were sitting together while the swing slowly swinging.

The picture was very beautiful, and their Wangye was very happy.

After finishing all this, Housekeeper Cao left to report back to Xiao Tianyao.


Even when Xiao Wangfu was very busy with current events. There was nothing Xiao Tianyao couldn’t know. Unless he himself doesn’t want to know it.

Housekeeper Cao has always been the person reporting things about Lin Chujiu.

“Mmm.” Xiao Tianyao simply replied, while his left hand that was holding the brush keep writing on the paper. After reporting, Housekeeper Cao bowed his head.

After a while, Xiao Tianyao put down the brush in his hand and said, “Let the Embroidery Mama send clothes and jewelry to Wangfei.”

The Southern Princess and Western Prince will arrive in the Eastern Country tomorrow. Xiao Tianyao doesn’t need to pick the people personally, but he must attend the palace banquet.

“This slave understand.” Housekeeper Cao folded his hand and left to look for the Embroidery Mama.


It was not Lin Chujiu’s first time to appear on a social occasion, but it will be the first time she will attend together with Xiao Tianyao. It was necessary for her to dress up well.

When Feicui and Zhenzhu received this news, they began to prepare Lin Chujiu’s clothes.

Feicui and Zhenzhu knew that Lin Chujiu doesn’t like wearing bright colored clothes. But, they prepared a set of scarlet palace dress for her. These four maidservants deliberately choose this color. Xiao Tianyao always wear red clothes in front of the people. If Lin Chujiu wear this color, it will be surely a match to their Wangye.

“Wangfei, this is the clothes we prepared for you. You should try them first. If it doesn’t fit you, we will change it at once.” Shanhu and Manao picked up the dress to reveal the delicate embroidery they made.

“You have the heart.” There will be a palace banquet tomorrow, although Lin Chujiu doesn’t want to put so much effort into it, she also doesn’t want to be rude. She knew she must try the clothes first so that the four maidservants could make an adjustment in advance.

Feicui and Zhenzhu came forward, they wanted to serve Lin Chujiu in changing clothes. However, they heard footsteps outside the door, the Embroidery Mama, couple with other maidservants came with trays in their hand and walked in: “Wangfei, this slave was ordered to send you clothes and jewelry.”

  1. A relationship is about both setting aside their selfishness… rn only LC is comfortable…

    She keeps thinking about only her can’t say that she thought about him before… Because all she did was because 0f an obligation…

    Never willingly…

    I don’t think xty is wrong… Why simple… him comes from the past era where men are dominant character… he simply doesn’t the difference while chuji knows and want him to act like 21st century dude…

    Xty maybe off but what he’s doing is for her atleast right now…

    Despite everything sucha said she doesn’t have an ounce of sympathy… that’s plainly cruel

    She doesn’t need to forgive him but she could have tried to understand him… but she doesn’t even try…

    Always complaining… She doesn’t want to suffer
    Well who does… but in that era if you aren’t strong you are dead… that’s what xty is trying to do get her to become stronger… he might be wrong… but was there anyone to teach him better?

    She act more like an arrogant heir from 21st century rather than an actual orphan…

    What she’s doing is totally wrong she doesn’t need to forgive him…

    But she needs to communicate with him… to actually come to an understanding so that they can live better…

    But no… she’s just accommodating herself selfishly…

    Despite xty was wrong atleast he was doing it for her… but what about her?

    1. I totally agree with you.. setting our MC syndrome aside, XTY really has a point in doing all those things and he is really considerate of LCJ, considering that he doesn’t have any woman by his side all those years. I just can’t understand why most readers hates him so much. As for me, I like his character. Well he did some unpleasant things before but who does not?

    2. I totally agree. I can’t really understand why most of the readers hates XTY to death. As for me, i really like his character here. If this was a modern genre novel, the character might have been hateful but this is the ancient era. This kind of attitude is considered normal for those overachiever characters like XTY, considering he also has that kind of past.

    3. Waaah! Am soo happy to see this comment. I totally agree! We also have to consider the setting of the story. As much as I like LCs strong character I would still hope she acts more open minded given thay she came from the current era where all of history have already been taught and studied. The point is, she should know that XTY is born and raised in thay era where dominance is privileged only to the strong and honorable. I hope she could guide XTY properly. I hope for their relationship to grow.

  2. At this point, I’m more on XTY’s side than LC’s. She thinks this relationship is “good”? All I’m seeing is that LC’s using the “I’ve been taken advantage of twice” excuse to become a permanent freeloader of a wealthy prince. She’s unwilling to repair or build this relationship and basically holding XTY’s feelings as a hostage to do whatever she wants. She didn’t just shut XTY out for a night, she’s shutting out any possibility of reconciliation.

    XTY is the one that’s trying to learn and figure out how to have a relationship and LC’s just running away and doing her own things. Sure, XTY didn’t have the best methods before, but it does seem he is improving, as awkward as he still is. LC is the one that comes from the more open-minded modern mindset, but she’s incredibly narrow-minded now. She pretends she wants to have a husband and wife relationship, but she now just wants to be leeching layabout with a rich husband.
