Chapter Ninety One Who Can Compare To My Man

Qu Qing Ju walked over to He Heng and, not looking at the female candidate at the side, and acted to bow. She was stopped by He Heng who put his hand out and pulled her to stand under the shade of the roof, “Just now, zhen was going to the back hall to see you, and heard you went to muhou’s place. Is muhou fine these past days?”

“Everything about muhou is well,” Qu Qing Ju held up a fan and started waving it, moving her hand towards He Heng so that both would feel the breeze, “muhou has said for us to go to her residence to eat. She’s always thinking of you.”

“Since that’s the case, then tomorrow, we’ll go together to Fu Shou Palace for the noon meal,” He Heng then pointed at the girl kneeling on the ground, his voice becoming cold, “do you know this candidate?”

Qu Qing Ju followed and turned her body. She saw the candidate’s head was lowered and ordered: “Raise your head.”

The candidate was hesitant to raise her head. A taijian behind her pinched her chin to lift it up. Her eyes were flitting around, afraid to look straight at Qu Qing Ju.

She frowned. Qu Qing Ju did have the memories of the previous Qu Qing Ju’s life, but much of the time, she wouldn’t deliberately flip through the original’s memories. Seeing the girl now, she remembered some unhappy events. She said coldly: “Isn’t this Wei guniang, just two years, Wei guniang has become more beautiful.”

This girl was Qu lao taitai’s paternal family’s grand-niece. She had once stayed for a time in Chang De Gong Fu and had a good relationship with Qu Yue Su. If she had the time, she liked to jeer at the original. Was her name Wei Jing, or Wei Zhu?

“Candidate Wei Zhu greets Empress.” When the taijian released Wei Zhu’s chin, she instantly leaned down on the ground, clearly very afraid that Qu Qing Ju would settle old scores.

“Didn’t think jiugong would willingly send you into the palace,” Qu Qing Ju gave a yawn, lazily waving the fan in her hand, “right now, the xuannu should be living in Tuan Fang Hall, how did you get here?” When she finished speaking, she saw Wei Zhu’s shoulders start to tremble. Originally, she had been bored but she was now intrigued. She turned to look at He Heng beside her, “Emperor, how did this Wei guniang encounter you?”

He Heng saw the mockery in her eyes and smiled helplessly. He narrated: “Zhen waited a long time for you, but you didn’t return so zhen decided to greet muhou. Who knew that zhen would encounter such a bold and disrespectful candidate, who dared to slander Empress in front of zhen.”

“Oh?” Qu Qing Ju gave a small smile as she watched the trembling of Wei Zhu’s shoulders increas, “What good matter of ben gong did Wei guniang speak of?”

Wei Zhu was frightened. Originally, she was indignant that, the kind of woman that Qu Qing Ju was, became the Empress. Who knew that after saying a few words, the Emperor became angry. Seeing Qu Qing Ju’s powerful composure so different than in the past, she was so frightened she couldn’t speak.

“If Wei guniang doesn’t want to say, ben gong won’t force you, come … …”

“Empress, do you remember two years ago?” Wei Zhu raised her head, and resignedly spoke, “At that time, grand aunt and chen nu’s grandfather made a spoken promise, do you still have an impression?

Qian Chang Xin heard the words and motioned for the palace attendants to all leave, leaving behind the personal attendants of the Emperor and Empress. He didn’t know if this candidate would be crazy and say something. Since the Emperor and Empress didn’t call for her to shut up, he could only not let the servants hear.

“Do you mean two years ago when grandmother and great uncle had the intentions for ben gong to be engaged to your brother?” Qu Qing Ju was very unrestrained. She waved her hand and stared at Wei Zhu like she was looking at an idiot, her voice surprised as she said: “Ben gong has such a good husband as the Emperor, how would ben gong remember those unfounded matters. Right, what is your brother called?”

My dear Empress, how could you just say it, what would the Emperor think? Mu Jin nervously looked at the Emperor. The result was that she only saw a satisfied smile on the Emperor’s face. She was confused. Did something she didn’t know happen?

Even though he was slightly furious when he heard that the Qu Family wanted to marry Qu Qing Ju into the Wei Family, but He Heng was very quickly soothed by Qu Qing Ju’s words. Those words were right. With such a good man as him, what were other men worth?

Even more, the engagement between Qing Ju and the Wei Family was only mentioned and hadn’t been finalized. He wasn’t as extreme to blame Qing Ju for such a minor matter.

According to the attitude of the Qu Family towards Qing Ju, he didn’t believe that Qu lao taitai was really thinking for Qing Ju. Thinking about the rich dowry that Qu Qing Ju had when she married into the wang fu, He Heng smiled coldly. They were definitely conspiring for the dowry that Tian shi had left behind for Qing Ju. Thinking about it, he glared coldly at Wei Zhu kneeling on the ground, “Such nonsense, you dare slander the Empress, such recklessness!”

Wei Zhu heard the discontent in the Emperor’s words, and quickly continued: “Emperor, please investigate thoroughly, this subject’s words are all true. If xiandi didn’t decree the marriage, great aunt would have agreed to the Wei Family’s proposal.”

“Since the engagement wasn’t made, it naturally means that it was the will of Heaven that zhen and Empress should be together. To mention these matters deliberately in front of zhen, are you trying to ruin Empress’ reputation?!” He Heng’s voice became darker, harshly proclaiming, “The daughter of the Wei Clan is of an improper family, and lacking in protocol. Pass zhen’s decree, the members of the Imperial House of Da Long Dynasty are not allowed to take the daughters of the Wei Clan as wife or qie. The daughters of the Wei Clan eternally cannot be female candidates and enter the palace.”

This decree was breaking the upward road for the daughters of the Wei Clan. Qu Qing Ju looked at the expressionless He Heng, smiled and turned her head. Her gaze landed on Wei Zhu who had collapsed on the ground.

“Drag her down, bestow forty blows and send her back to the Wei Family,” He Heng gripped Qu Qing Ju’s hand, coldly ordering, “In the future, if there are candidates that walk in the palace where they shouldn’t, all will receive a beating of forty before being thrown out of the palace.”

A woman that had been sentenced to a beating by the Emperor before being sent out of the palace. She wouldn’t ever marry in this lifetime. Qu Qing Ju watched as Wei Zhu was dragged out by the taijian and sighed, “I just went from being an unfavored di daughter to being the Empress, but so many cannot tolerate it.”

“To get this kind of person to slander you in front of me, they think me an idiot,” He Heng caressed the silver hairpin in her hair, his tone unusually warm, “Don’t waste any attention on these people. Come, accompany me for a nap.”

Qu Qing Ju smiled, “With Emperor here, I won’t waste any attention. Emperor is brilliant and wise, peerless through the ages.”

Zhen’s peerlessness, isn’t that also yours?” He Heng smiled, his mood light as he took Qu Qing Ju back to the back hall of Tian Qi Palace. As to what had just occurred ……

Qing Ju had such a good man as him, would she think of any other?!

Qian Chang Xin and Mu Jin stared at each other, seeing the same moved emotion in the other’s eyes before silently following.

“The female of the Wei Family was thrown out of the palace?” He Yuan kicked aside the taijian that was rubbing his knees. These days he often had to go to Shou Kang Palace to pray for xiandi, so his knees were already bruised.

Ben wang’s brother is so infatuated with Empress, that he could even tolerate this kind of thing,” he smiled coldly, “He does have good skill. Such a short amount of time and he has managed to control everyone at court.”

Gao Duo, standing under him, heard the words, and hesitated before asking: “Wang ye, the circumstances are stronger than the people. Why don’t we stay still now and wait for a good opportunity?”

“Good opportunity?” He Yuan snorted, “By now, the people of ben wang have been almost completely suppressed. Lao da’s people have already stood on the new Emperor’s side. Among the advisors of fuhuang, Tian Jin Ke and Luo Chang Qing have tight connections with the Empress, they naturally would do their best to support the new emperor. As to the kind of people like Wei Wen Guang and Lu Jing Hong, the new emperor doesn’t have to do anything and they would be the new conservative fraction. Fuhuang’s abdication decree was written in front of the senior officials, and he did the seal himself. What good opportunity do you think ben wang has?”

Gao Duo didn’t think Rui Wang would see the situation so clearly. He hesitated before suggesting: “Since that’s the case, wang ye, why don’t you help the Emperor with his affairs, then the Emperor wouldn’t directly attack you?”

“The kind of person He Heng is, on the surface, he would make it more beautiful than anyone else. If he attacks, not many can compare to his ferocity,” Originally, He Yuan was a very proud person. But after two short months, he was so beaten by reality, half of his pride had gone away. “Even if ben wang submitted to him, he wouldn’t be very close to ben wang. Even more, ben wang doesn’t want to fawn over him.” He coldly twisted his mouth, “ben wang just doesn’t want to see him well.”

Gao Duo silently glanced at He Yuan. To keep going even with nothing at stake, what was he thinking?

“What should be done with the Wei Family?” He asked uncertainly, “The love between the Emperor and Empress is stronger than gold. The Wei Family’s tactics are just embarrassing themselves. If they beg aid from wang ye, what would you do?”

He Yuan sneered: “In the beginning, it was them that asked ben wang to help. They were stupid themselves and mucked up. It has nothing to do with ben wang.” Finishing, he summoned He Fu Er, “In the future, if the Wei Family shows up, don’t receive them.”

“Yes,” He Fu Er noted it down and hesitated for a second before reporting, ”Wang ye, the Qu ce fei in Xi Ce Yuan is seriously ill, should an invite be sent to the Imperial Hospital for a taiyi to examine ce fei?”

Wang fei is responsible for such matters, why ask me?” He Yuan impatiently waved his hand. It was clear that he didn’t have the person of Xi Ce Yuan on his heart.

He Fu Er understood. It had been because wang fei didn’t do anything that he had taken a bribe from Yao Xi to beg wang ye. From the looks of it, that one in Xi Ce Yuan had lost favor. So he wouldn’t have to waste any more time for Xi Ce Yuan in the future.

Gao Duo, as a subordinate, when he heard a matter of the wang ye’s houyuan, he naturally closed his mouth. Only after He Fu Er left did he interrupt: “Wang ye, this one heard you have a ce fei that is the sister of the Empress, is it this one?”

He Yuan didn’t understand Gao Duo’s meaning: “It’s her, but the Empress didn’t have good relationships with the Qu Family, so this Qu shi wasn’t useful.”

Gao Duo smiled: “If that’s the case, then please forgive this subordinate to say something overstepping the bounds. Wang ye, you should not treat Qu ce fei too well. Otherwise, in the eyes of others, they would assume that you are feeling unjust on behalf of the Qu Clan and the Emperor would have more reason to target you.”

He Yuan waved his hand, dismissing: “Just a plaything, ben wang isn’t at that point to waste so much effort on her.”

Gao Duo smiled as he raised his hands, “Wang ye is wise.”

  1. Poor girl. Maybe it’s better for her to end up like yun qing and find a nice steward to marry. I wonder how long before the wei family falls?

  2. thanks a lot!
    wh-wh-whart—–?! this wei girl, she…she’s practically on the same level as feng zi jin?!? what nonsense, daring to slander the empress in front of the emperor! i’ll give leeway that she would have been pressured by her family, so i’ll blame her family too! what on earth…-facepalms- the things these people do continue to astound me, the brainlessness of their actions…woah, that’s a really severe punishment, that he heng gave! no longer can the females of the wei family marry to the imperial family…
    qing ju was so cool—-! -screams- he heng, too, but qing ju was cooler lol! ahahaha! he heng gave a great show of support.
    oh, yue su’s sick? …ok…

  3. Even though QQJ and HH are emperor and empress, there seems to still be a lot of unrest around them.
    I for one, can’t wait to see a prince or princess from QQJ soon 🙂
    For how active they are i’m surprised there hasn’t been one yet.

    Thank you for the daily chapters! gives me something to always look forward to.

  4. I swear He Heng is in the palm of Qu QIng Ju’s hands… he was pacified so easily T^T. And He Yuan….he’s still fighting, I honestly admire his perseverance but if I were to come face to face with him and I had a deadly weapon only the heavens know what might happen. His treatment of everyone is just f**ked up. Thank you Mom, for giving birth to me in the 21st century!

    1. One we forget that she is decades older than him. And quite frankly I don’t think He Heng is driving blind here. There are plenty of times when she does things that he ignores completely, case in point playing dumb in front of his mother. Quite frankly though, the girl was stupid enough to be where she wasn’t supposed to be, embarrassed the Emperor in front of his wife, and then slandered his judgement in making her his Empress. She got off easy.

    2. “The result was that she only saw a satisfied smile on the Emperor’s face.”

      She totally knows how to handle him XD

  5. That wasn’t the smartest move, using the family that have bad impression on the Empress to frame her, it’s so obvious that they want to give QQJ a hard time, please try harder next time, at least don’t use your own daughter to do something like that, poor little girl
    Luckily HH is head over heels for QQJ, and QQJ is a fox deep inside, trying to appease an Emperor or two is easy as pie 😄
    Thank your for the chapter 😊

  6. Other than QQJ and HH mom the other women in this novel don’t really have brains!!! x-x why would you attack the empress when you kno the emperor LOVES her so much!!! He even made that public love letter LOL and wow HY is an asshole!!! QYS will never have a happy life at this rate…she can’t even marry someone else since she gave her Vcard(lol) to HY. I just hope she won’t die a cruel death…. With no support she will get bully by everyone in that fu for sure x-x

    1. Exactly. So many foolish women. So many foolish men as well. How did the Wei Clan think this would work? Have they learnt nothing from all of the Emperor’s displays of affection? People need to stop attacking QQJ directly and start being a bit more devious if they want to get rid of her.

      QYS is totally doomed. She’ll either get better and live a miserable life or get worse and die.

      1. I really wonder whether QYS might be pregnant. If she is really pregnant I really feel sorry for her because HY and his wang fei will torture her to the extend she miscarriage and die along with the baby. No matter how much she is jealous QQJ and followed her stupid parents’ control and married HY, she do not deserved this kind of inhumane treatment from HY, (what is HY’s wife name again) Bai Ling something. HY and his wang fei is beyond cruel and I hope HH and QQJ will give them the desserts that suited them the most.

        I also can’t wait for QQJ to dance for HH and little HH n QQJ to come along soon since we are coming very close to the end of the novel…

      1. True…true..oh don’t forget jiang yong fu fei, she’s also smart to cater to qqj favor and got a high rank in the hougong

    2. True…true..oh don’t forget jiang yong fu fei, she’s also smart to cater to qqj favor and got a high rank in the hougong

    3. Probably because Imperial Palace politics is kinda like showbiz,you can’t trust anyone’s words. People will just believe it until they see it themselves…or when the Emperor passes the decree of their death.

    4. well, i don’t think most of the women are that stupid or in plain word ‘dumb’. most of them are too delusional in my opinion. they don’t even consider the possibility of He Heng falling head over heels for Qu Qing Ju. for them it is just a momentary affection and once it withered or if He Heng find someone better, Qu Qing Ju will be done for and they will have a chance with He Heng. sometimes i just sympathize with these women though. most of them are brought up that way and won’t have any other thoughts regarding man and women relationships.

  7. Omg I didn’t expect that. Breaking rules to look for the Emperor with the sole purpose of slandering his Empress? Are those people stupid? XD

    And He Yuan, what an idiot… is he trying his best to reach the depths of despair? There’s no reason for him not to succeed I guess…

    Right now, this is the novel I’m looking ahead to the most, this is killing me!

    Thanks for the chapter!

  8. HH is like a puppy who needs approval from his master *cough* QJ. Funny he immediately become smug just because QJ praised him as good man. He’s a goner… 😁

    Isn’t Jing GF also from Wei clan? If emperor band a clan, is it for all Wei clan or only specific Wei clan that offended the emperor? I dunno how this clan thing works.

    Why ppl like Wei Zhu is so worked up to slight QJ. Didnt she learn from past experience of CDGF ?

    And HY… I have this slight hope that he will change a bit for the better… Seems his relationship w/ HH cant be smoothed any further. If HH knew that HY has slight interest over QJ, prbbly it will even worsen the situation. Let’s see how story unfolded…

    Thank you.

    1. It’s most likely a different Wei family unrelated to Jing guifei’s. Otherwise, why would He Heng kick her out? If he banned his own mother’s clan, that’s being unfilial which is one of the worst things an Emperor could possibly do. He would be shooting himself in the foot and open himself to huge criticism from the court.

      Also, that “Wei” might be a different character. I would have to check the raws to be certain. In Chinese, Wei could be pronounced 4 different ways and be written with numerous different characters. It’s not like English where one name is just “one” name.

      1. Ah.. I see. I forgot that chinese pronounciation can be defined w/ different character. I thought it’s only one Wei, as in english.. 😅

        Thank you

    2. It is a different Wei. Wei Rang Shuang and Dowager Empress Wei are from the same clan. Qu Qing Ju’s grandmother, the girl in this chapter, and Wei Wen Guang are distantly related.

      1. Oh.. So Wei Wen Guang is distant relative. I wonder if he was HY supporter in the court before… 😅

        Thanks for the explanation

      2. He had a disagreement with the Wei Family since he was a branch descendant and not the main branch like the duke of Chang De’s mother.

  9. Who is this Wei girl? I don’t remember..hahaha..I wonder why they always take action without thinking through about the result..pure arrogance and confidence I think..so annoying

    1. the wei girl in this chapter is a new character that has never been mentioned before.

  10. Thanks for the update. It was very confusing. The Wei girl. I don’t get the part why the Wei family wants to slander the Empress. Didn’t they see what happen to the Duke?

  11. He Yuan can seriously never match upto He Heng, weather it be his behavior towards women or towards other people. The chapter title is indeed apt, after all who can compare to He Heng 😌.
    What I am astonished about is the fact, people still think they can build a wall between He Heng and Qu Qing Ju. Well the Wei family incident surely gives an indication to others about not even trying to blacken Qu Qing Ju’s name specially with a man like our Emperor here protecting her. This new emperor and empress practically give off a warning 👾👾👾 ::Beware! Don’t come close, because, if you are not acknowledged by us, you’ll be crushed:: 👻👻👻

  12. haha…HH must have been so deprived, QQJ one and only strong praise can easily appease HH’s mood.
    QYS can officially enter the cold chamber all thanks to Gao Duo’s advise unless she is pregnant.

    hopefully that Wei Zhu’s stupidity didn’t affect with Jing Gui Fei’s Wei Family Clan

    1. as has been mentioned above in another comment, just in case you didn’t see it, wei zhu is from a different clan than jing gui fei’s wei family. in chinese, there are four different characters and intonations for ‘wei’. so, wei zhu ang jing gui fei are from two different clans. it’s just in english, it’s spelled the same way.

      1. yes I did read it. commented before refreshing the page XP. but thank you for clarifying it.

      2. haha, i did think that was a possibility! it’s ok! personalised comment for you, lol!

  13. Ah, that girl really should just shut up, even after seeing the changed QQJ, she still dare to slander without strong basis like that. Not even an engagement, just word from the fallen Qu Clan. I think she underestimate the relation of the Empress and the Emperor.

    QYS is really pitiful, shouldn’t be too greedy and prideful. Still jealous of QQJ. Hope she didn’t die full of regret, and jealousy.

  14. Thanks so much. QQJ is so cool…and HH is so in love. With a single praise from QQJ that he is such a good husband, he is completely appeased. The ppl around them should be smarter and learn that opposing the Empress means having the Emperor as an enemy….which is never a good thing.

    QYS will have a tough life. HY only considers her a plaything. QBL hates her….and no one will treat QYS well since there are no benefits to doing so and they would be afraid of offending the Empress and the protective dragon beside her.

  15. STD? That’s my best guess for what yue su is sick with. Because the author seems to like tormenting the characters somewhat.

  16. Thanks for the update. But there are some things I don’t understand. Why does saying QQJ was almost engaged before marrying HH ruin her reputation and is called slander. Why is HY surprised about HH’s non-reaction to it? Was it a serious issue in those times?

    1. Because getting engaged was almost the same as having married. If the engagement was broken off after it was made, it usually is blamed on the female for doing something wrong. She was also trying to imply that Qu Qing Ju liked her cousin, not He Heng.

      1. Oh, so she was implying that He Heng was a foolish, blind emporer being cuckolded by his beloved empress. Or maybe not cuckolded, but more like he can’t even get the heart of his wife and is inferior to that wei girl’s cousin. After all, that cousin could get the empress’ heart when he couldn’t.

  17. That subordinate seems like a double agent. From the very first chapter he was introduced till now he had never actually given any advise that benefited He Yuan.

  18. That Wei girl had the audacity to slander QQJ?! Calling her act stupid or foolish is an understatement. Apparently some people just NEVER learn.

  19. is Gao Duo a spy?? like i have honestly been thinking so from the very start he was mentioned. he reminds me of a shadow lurking behind rui wang and whispering bad luck in his ear 🤔…. i find that funny now 😂😂

  20. Qu Qing Ju gave a small smile as she watched the trembling of Wei Zhu’s shoulders increas, > increas to increase

Tell me something
