SPECIAL CHAPTER THREE

Jin Di Luo: A Gossip Seeking Heart

More than a month after leaving the Capital, I suddenly received a letter from the main estate, turns out that Head Madam wants me to report Young Master’s recent actions, with special attention paid to any abnormal details; for this purpose, I have started to write this diary.

Details are as follows.

On the eighth of the seventh month.

At the hour of Mao (卯时 = 5am – 7am), Young Master got up to practice martial arts.

At the hour of Chen (辰时 = 7am – 9am), Young Master took a bath and ate, selecting a cyan outer robe.

At the hour of Si (巳时 = 9am – 11am), Young Master began to study mechanism.

At the hour of Wu (午时 = 11am – 1pm), Young Master finished eating lunch, and resumed studying mechanism.

At the hour of Wei (未时 = 1pm – 3pm), Young Master was still studying mechanism.

At the hour of Shen (申时 = 3pm – 5pm), Young Master ate two pieces of crystal cake, and continued to study mechanism.

At the hour of You (酉时 = 5pm – 7pm), the maid asked Young Master to dine in the main hall, Young Master refused, he had four dishes and one soup in the study room, then continued to study mechanism.

At the hour of Xu (戌时 = 7pm – 9pm), Young Master lit the candle and read books.

At the hour of Hai (亥时 = 9pm – 11pm), Young Master put out the candle and went to bed.

On the ninth of the seventh month.

At the hour of Mao (卯时 = 5am – 7am), Young Master got up to practice martial arts.

At the hour of Chen (辰时 = 7am – 9am), Young Master took a bath and ate, selecting a blue outer robe.

At the hour of Si (巳时 = 9am – 11am), Young Master began to study mechanism.

At the hour of Wu ((午时 = 11am – 1pm), Young Master finished eating lunch, and resumed studying mechanism.

At the hour of Wei ((未时 = 1pm – 3pm), Young Master was still studying mechanism.

At the hour of Shen ((申时 = 3pm – 5pm), Young Master ate two pieces of osmanthus roll, and continued to study mechanism.

At the hour of You (酉时 = 5pm – 7pm), the maid asked Young Master to dine in the main hall, Young Master refused, he had four dishes and one soup in the study room, then continued to study mechanism.

At the hour of Xu (戌时 = 7pm – 9pm), Young Master lit the candle and read books.

At the hour of Hai (亥时 = 9pm – 11pm), Young Master put out the candle and went to bed.

On the eleventh of the seventh month.

Please refer to the tenth for everything.

Young Master selected a white outer robe, the osmanthus roll was replaced by mung bean cake.

On the fifteenth of the seventh month.

Please refer to the fourteenth for everything.

Young Master selected a black outer coat, ate one more crystal cake.

……

On the fifteenth of the eighth month.

Please refer to the fourteenth for the hours between the hour of Mao (卯时 = 5am – 7am) and the hour of Shen ((申时 = 3pm – 5pm).

Young Master selected a grey outer robe, his snack was a plate of grapes.

At the hour of You (酉时 = 5pm – 7pm), Palace Master came to visit, asking Young Master if he has felt bored?

Young Master replied boredom is a trouble that only belongs to common people.

Palace Master heartily laughs and leaves.

On the sixteenth of the eighth month.

Please refer to the thirteenth for everything.

Young Master selected a purple outer robe, ate half a plate of honey lotus roots.

On the seventeenth of the eighth month.

Young Master declares he wants to go out to relax.

He brought his sketches and models, went to the Gobi and completed a whole day of explosion experiments.

On the twentieth of the eighth month.

Please refer to the thirteenth for everything.

On the third of the ninth month.

Please refer to the second for everything.
……

On the twentieth of the ninth month.

Head Madam sent a letter, telling me that there is no need to further report Young Master’s detailed action, reporting is only necessary when there’s anything unusual, this way the energy of the delivering doves can also be reserved.

I released a very deep breath.

I have long desired to stop writing this kind of boring dairy.

Writing this itself is a pointless task.

I have once repeatedly questioned, would Young Master’s time of unusual behaviour actually come, it seems that there is only mechanism in his young life, always and forever mechanism, no matter who or what he is facing, he is always calm and still, nothing can affect his mood.

Until a day in the early winter, Young Master is studying mechanic models as usual in his study room.

“Some guests have arrived.” The guard of the Sixth Palace silently appears by the door.

——clearly, Palace Master has slipped away again, whenever Palace Master slips away, all the matters in the palace would be handed over to Young Master.

“Oh, which level were they able to reach this time?” Young Master’s face does not change at all.

The guard lowers his head and answers: “They are moving surprisingly fast, have already reached the sixth level.”

Young Master pauses, turns his head to directly look at the guard.

“What kind of people are they?” It’s obvious that his curiosity has been incited.

I am also very shocked, after all, only a few people managed to successfully arrive at the foot of this mountain in several decades, and not even half a person was able to break through the obstructions and climb to the summit, it is clear that the guests this time are more ferocious than imagined.

“A male and a female, both are very young, the male is about eighteen to nineteen, the female is even younger, looks to be only fifteen or sixteen.” The guard respectfully reports.

“Is that so? Indeed the case of ‘heroes emerge from the youngsters’.” Young Master’s face reveals a smile that I have not seen in so long.

“Young Master, that young man has already been stopped by Hall Master Mei, and has fallen into the Prison of Chaos.” With his head lowered, the guard continues to add, “Only the lady remains there, putting out a last-ditch effort.”

“Oh? Why would she be allowed to remain there? Hall Master Mei has not encountered someone to practice her skills for too long, so she wants to play for a little longer?”

Young Master is still nonchalantly toying with his design model.

“It is because Hall Master Mei found the Gold-Jade Silk Pouch on her.” The guard quietly replies.

Young Master’s hands suddenly stops moving.

This is the very first time, that I have seen a look of surprise and shocked on Young Master’s face.

Maybe there is also a little trace of joy that he may not have even realized himself.

I suddenly have the impulsive thought of grabbing my brush and ink.

“……since she has the Gold-Jade Silk Pouch, would you like us to bring her up for you to see first? So later, Guardian Jin will not……”

The guard painstakingly reports whilst trembling.

Young Master sounds an “en”, not saying a word.

The guard probably assumed that he has guessed his master’s mind correctly, so he immediately gets up to take his leave.

“Wait.”

However, before he had taken a third step, Young Master suddenly speaks up behind him.

“Do not interfere, just let her fight with Hall Master Mei, I really want to see, what other skills she’s got. ”

Young Master’s voice sounds like it had been blown over from a far far place, coming with endless indifference and iciness, also a sense of implausible, forced deliberateness.

I begin to feel an extremely strong premonition, maybe, possibly, probably, I am about to enter a prolonged period of diary-writing.

En, I shall prepare the delivering-doves, also an ample amount of paper and brushes.

  1. Sob sob. I finally finished it. Three years after you guys started translating it. I really love PWW and this story. I can’t help but wish a Mary Sue ending for everyone who deserves it (Nan Yi, Jin Bu Yao), and eternity suffering for those who don’t (GXJ), but I can only hope they be happy wherever their story turns. Thank you so much! I hope you two are also doing well, and that you’re happy.
