The swords on the wall reflected the cold rays under the moon.
Taohua (Peach Blossom) had cold feet and she turned to the man behind and applauded: ”You are so talented in civil and military skills, I really admire you!”
Shen Zaiye did not move his head but looked down at her: ”These swords are made by the masters and they need the blood of a beauty to be powerful.”
Hearing this, Taohua trembled and said solemnly: ”They lied to you! Please believe me, my blood is almost the same as a pig, red in color.”
Shen Zaiye wanted to continue to frighten her but hearing this, he almost could not contain his laughter and loosen his hold on her: ”You mean I’ve been hugging a pig to sleep every day?”
”What can I do if you think in this way?” Jiang Taohua gritted her teeth and said: ”But I think I’m more comfortable to hug than a pig.”
could you add the novels 风月不相关,
from 白鹭成双 Bai Lu Cheng Shuang ?
Spoiler from touchmycoat:
the book i literally just finished today and spent oh, two hours dripping tears and snot for? Tentative title translation: The World for a Peach Blossom. A Zhao Country princess is to be married to the Southern King (an honorary title for a son of the Emperor) of Wei Country, but on the way, she stumbles into the Wei Prime Minister’s plot to kill her for political power. The author writes something like “Shen Zaiye has a hundred ways to get Jiang Taohua killed and Jiang Taohua has a hundred and one ways to convince him not to.” Bastard meets bastard, and the political shenanigans are FIERCE. BLCS writes such intricate plot lines that exemplify “the personal is political” fnjdjfndjnf harem women and their relationships and infighting can both dictate and be dictated by the greater “men’s world” of politics. The title really says it all—the MC’s name is literally peach blossom, and the tug-of-war at the heart of this novel is, when two bastards fighting for the good of their countries meet and fall in love, which will they sacrifice, their love or their countries?
(okay this one was not an easy read though, i’ll be real the ML rapes the MC in the very first chapter and while she takes it pretty calmly, it’s…a hell of a way to start a relationship. the ending had me fucking bawling for chapters and chapters though, in a good way.)
May I ask if this story has a happy ending? I’ve been watching lots of historical dramas lately, and I don’t think I can read anything tragic until, OH~, maybe next month.
Don’t worry HE after some heartbreak.
