That year when I was 13, I ascended the throne. At the Qiong Lin feast, that Tan Hua Lang (3rd place in the national civil exam) whom I had stared at an extra few glances, left in indignation to express his stand to die rather than to be put to shame.
On the second day, my dissolute name have spread throughout the entire kingdom even till the age of 18. Throughout the kingdom all who had ambition and talents, none dare to be in the same room with me….
In reality, that night of the Qiong Lin feast, the one I was staring at was not the Tan Hua Lang, but was the Zhuang Yuan Lang (1st place in the national civil exam) who stood besides the Tai Qing pond, gentlemanly and upright, good natured and kind hearted like jade. The moonlight was overflowing the Tai Chi pond, also creating ripples throughout the pool of my heart.
Alternate Translation by Summer:
It is said that Guaren (I) is a lecherous ruler.
That year when I was thirteen years old, I just ascended to the throne. On the Qionglin feast, that tanghua official just because I swept at him two glances, with grief and indignation jumped into Taiqing pond to express that he would rather die than be humiliated.
The next day, my immoral notoriety spreaded all over the imperial court as well as among the ordinary people.
Till eighteen years old, there was no talented person with ambitions, who dared to share a room with me………
In fact, that night on Qionglin feast I wasn´t looking at tanghua official but at zhuangyuan official, who stood by Taiqing pond – an honest nobleman, gentle like a jade. Moonlight overflowed Taiqing pond. It also rippled the lake inside my heart.
Yet, Pei Zheng was leaning on the side, he spoke with a smile: „Your majesty, your illness again relapsed.“
Guaren has a sickness. It´s name is lovesickness. Only love can can cure it.
