八宝妆 Eight Treasures Trousseau Chapter Sixty Five “Snowy Night”

This chapter has been brought to you by me, Adnana, and Vivie.


Chapter Sixty-Five: Snowy Night

Yan Jin Qiu had never seen Hua Xi Wan being so cruel to another female. In his impression, she was usually very lazy, elegant, or indifferent. But no matter the time, she was always beautiful, as though the shortcomings of her personality had nothing to do with her.

But suddenly, when this woman showed her shrewish side, and was fighting viciously against someone else, he had a feeling that he was being protected by this woman.

It really was… a strange feeling.

There was near and far in relationships between people. He also had his close and distant relationships. After the times in the past when this elder sister of his had damaged the reputation and power of Xian Wang Fu for a man again and again, this jiejie was just a stranger to him. Now his wang fei was fighting with this sister who ranked lower than a stranger, so he naturally helped his wang fei. What more was there to say about that?

“The people say that Xian Wang Fei is a female calamity. I had thought that you would not be bewitched by beauty, but it seems that I had too high an opinion of you. You are just the same as other men.” Yan Jin Ling was extremely furious and she did not consider her words before speaking them. The reason why she dared to speak like this was because she and Yan Jin Qiu were born of the same mother. In the past, she had done so many things, but Yan Jin Qiu was able to tolerate her. Now, he would do the same.

“For a woman like this who only has beauty, who is jealous and unvirtuous, you do not consider any fraternal affection. When it is the anniversary of Mother’s death, with what face will you go to see her?” Yan Jin Ling also held anger. When Mother had been sick, the cefei in the wang fu had risen against her due to the favor she held. In order to protect her younger brother, her mother had begged the Empress Dowager to raise him in the palace. However, she, the daughter, had been left in the wang fu to see that favored cefei show off.

Then Mother passed due to sickness. Didi became the shizi of the wang fu, and the cefei and the son she had birthed lost favor with her father. However, her good father and brother did not care for her happiness and wanted to marry her to a young master of a prestigious family. She rebelled and she succeeded. However, people said that her father died due to his anger towards her.

Presently, her husband had been assassinated and no one would defend her. They accused her as the culprit of her husband’s murder, and even her sister-in-law dared to bully her! Hua shi was just the daughter of a prestigious family, but she dared to bully a female of the Imperial Family. This was taking advantage of one’s status to bully others!

Hua Xi Wan laughed rather than get angry about Yan Jin Ling calling her a female calamity. “Jiejie, you schemed against your didi at every turn for a man, you even stubbornly had your marriage when your father-wang was sick—do you have the face to see Mother?”

“Shut your mouth, you whore!” Yan Jin Ling pointed at Hua Xi Wan’s nose and scolded. “He favored a concubine and neglected Mother then. What is there about a man like that for me to feel guilty about?”

“Of course a man like that is not worth it, but is your didi not worth it?” Hua Xi Wan gripped Yan Jin Ling’s wrist. “Even if you have the right to pursue your own happiness, and there is no obligation for you to sacrifice yourself for you didi, you cannot damage your own brother in order to pursue your own happiness. Or is it that it is not permitted for you to sacrifice for your didi but it is right for your didi to sacrifice for you?”

She pushed aside Yan Jin Ling’s hand. Hua Xi Wan watched as the other stumbled back before she steadied herself and said in a cold voice, “How can there be such a good matter in the world, for others to sacrifice when you need it, and for you to question it when other people have needs? You think you are a goddess, and everyone in the world should let you have your way?!”

The other wanted to fight with her; had Hua Xi Wan stayed for so many years in the entertainment circles for nothing?

“Shut up, shut up!” Yan Jin Ling did not know what to say to Hua Xi Wan. Angrily, she rushed forward and wanted to slap Hua Xi Wan.

The entire room was silent. In the corner, Mu Tong, Bai Xia and the other personal servants shuddered.

Waving her slightly pained hand, Hua Xi Wan looked expressionlessly at Yan Jin Ling. “Do not assume that I do not hit women. When you leave today, you can announce that I, Hua Xi Wan, bully others using my status, step on people when they are down, and you can even go to the palace to complain about me, but I want you to remember this. This is Xian Wang Fu, this is not Lin Ping Junzhu Fu where you can do as you will!”

Yan Jin Ling was stunned by this slap and did not react for a moment. When she finally reacted and wanted to retaliate, she was stopped by Bai Xia and Hong Ying. The two servants who accompanied her today wanted to go forward and help but were stopped by a smiling Mu Tong.

“Two misses, as servants, it is better for us not to meddle in the affairs of our superiors. Otherwise, it will be very hard for me.”

The two servant girls had urgent expressions as they looked at Mu Tong. They looked at their mistress who was being held back and then they knelt with a bang.

“Tsk.” Mu Tong looked at the two young servant girls and snorted lightly. At least, they were perceptive. At least, they had more brains than this junzhu. Right now, many in Jing knew that Lin Ping Junzhu was a pawn about to be sacrificed. Wang Ye had asked for mercy on her behalf in front of the entire court in the morning session today. But the result was that not long after he returned to the fu, Lin Ping Junzhu had come to make a fuss. Adding on what Lin Ping Junzhu had done in the previous years, anyone would say that Wang Ye was a generous person and Lin Ping Junzhu was extreme.

Wang Ye was a man and it naturally was not good for him to descend into an argument with Lin Ping Junzhu. Fortunately, there was the valiant wang fei present. Otherwise, the matter would not be so satisfactorily resolved today. Mu Tong looked at the formidable wang fei and sighed inside. As expected of a miss whose maternal family were martial officers—she was valiant in every aspect.

“Hua Xi Wan, you have given me such humiliation today. Let’s look at the future; you will not be better off than I am.” Yan Jin Ling was held back and could not go near Hua Xi Wan. She was so angry she said vicious words. “No matter how beautiful you are, there will be a day when you become old. When it is that time, do you think the man beside you will tolerate you being so horrid as you have been today?”

Yan Jin Qiu’s expression darkened and he put down the teacup in his hand. He raised his eyes to look at Yan Jin Ling. “There is no need for you to worry about the affairs between my wife and I. Xi Wan is not just good in appearance. See the guest out!”

“Do not send me off, I will naturally go.” Yan Jin Ling smiled coldly as she pushed aside Bai Xia and Hong Ying. She said scornfully, “Hua shi, you really think the man beside you is truly as you see him?” After saying these words that would cause suspicions, Yan Jin Ling turned and left.

Yan Jin Qiu looked at Hua Xi Wan and did not speak.

Hua Xi Wan rubbed her hand. After she sat back down in her chair, she said, “You are really siblings with her?”

Yan Jin Qiu could only respond by grimacing at Hua Xi Wan’s action of “pouring salt onto the wound.” He said, “Yes, full-blooded siblings.”

“All right, do not think too much. There are all kinds of wonders in the world, and all kinds of people.” Hua Xi Wan reached to pat his shoulder. “I’m going to nap for a while. When the hotpot is prepared, then wake me up.” Waving her hand, she left with her four beautiful servant girls and moved towards the main yard from the main hall.

The main hall instantly quieted. Yan Jin Qiu looked at the light slippling from the door and sat motionlessly on the chair.

Wang Ye…” Mu Tong looked worriedly at the person sitting on the chair and called lightly.

“What is it?” Yan Jin Qiu looked with slightly upturned corners of his mouth at Mu Tong. He seemed to be in a very good mood.

Mu Tong lowered his head and then said, “The person who had been doing things to the food in the fu committed suicide in the prison a few days ago. Her roommate was taken by Wang Fei to the main yard to serve.”

“Since Wang Fei kept her, then there should not be a problem.” Yan Jin Qiu stood. When he walked to the doorway, he put his hands behind his back. “She is not someone who does not know the measure of her actions. If she dares to do this, then it naturally is because she made certain the other has a clean background before she made the decision.”

“This small one understands.” Mu Tong buried his head deeper. It was fortunate that the matter of the kitchen had been discovered early on and had not disturbed Wang Fei. Otherwise, the matter would not be smoothed over so easily. Even though Wang Ye had never said anything, in his view, Wang Fei held a high position in Wang Ye’s mind.

“Do not pay any more attention to Lin Ping Junzhu.” Yan Jin Qiu tilted his face down and looked at the fine snow swirling outside. “Ben wang has already treated her well enough.”

“Yes.” Mu Tong responded in a light voice.

In the main yard, Hua Xi Wan spread her arms to let Chen Qiu and Hong Ying help her change her clothing. Bai Xia and Zi Shan were cleaning up the bed. After everything was cleaned and sorted, Bai Xia helped Hua Xi Wan lie down. “Wang Fei, you did not give Lin Ping Junzhu much face today. In the future…”

“What do I care about her future?” Hua Xi Wan pulled the blanket on her body and said with a yawn, “Someone like her is just asking to be hit and scolded. She already called me a demoness, so why should I act virtuous for her?” Also, while she felt that Yan Jin Qiu was full of flaws, it was her own business how much she scorned her man. It wasn’t any other person’s business. Did Yan Jin Ling think the whole world was her mother?

Seeing Hua Xi Wan close her eyes, Bai Xia did not dare to ask more. With Zi Shan, they put down the coverlet and then lightly left. In reality, what she was more worried about was that Wang Ye will have a low opinion of Wang Fei after seeing her like that.

The men of the world like gentle and elegant women. Wang Fei had been so valiant just now, and she was afraid that Wang Ye would be shocked and scared.

What Bai Xia did not know was that, for Yan Jin Qiu, this was not a shock but a surprise. He was not a lusty person to start with. Seeing Hua Xi Wan even put aside the image of a refined and noble woman for him, he even felt that Hua Xi Wan’s slap had another kind of style.

This was the pot having a fitting pot lid. Even the coldest and most calculating man understood love, and even the laziest woman was treasured by someone.

Maybe, these two together could also be called a heavenly match.

In the night, the snow increased. Hua Xi Wan and Yan Jin Qiu consumed delicious hotpot, drank a light fruit wine, and were very happy.

Seeing the two in close intimacy, Bai Xia put down her worries. No matter what, as long as her superiors were happy, she would be reassured.

Because she had drunk a bit of wine, Hua Xi Wan was tipsy as she leaned back against the bed after washing. Looking at Yan Jin Qiu who was sitting at the table, she curled a finger and smiled seductively. “Little Beauty, come over and kiss Jiejie.”

Little Beauty-His Highness-Xian Wang laughed and then walked over. Then he pressed a kiss to the cheek of the true beauty.

In the white snowy winter night, twisting among the brocade red blankets was something to be envied.

In the morning, Hua Xi Wan lay on the bed and allowed Yan Jin Qiu to massage her waist for her. No matter how he urged, she was not willing to get up.

“Press gently up a bit. That’s right, a little lighter.”

“To the left a little, the left.”

“Get up and eat.”

“Don’t want to move, waist is sore.”

“I will have someone bring the wooden table to put on the bed.”

“Don’t want to eat, waist is sore.”

“It really is sore…”


Mu Tong heard rustling sounds come from the room again. Silently, he took the other servants and retreated outside.

      1. Thank you so much for suggesting to put three chapters per week. It’s like three times of happiness.

  1. *But suddenly, when this woman showed her shrewish side, and was fighting viciously against someone else, he had a feeling that he was being protected by this woman.

    It really was… a strange feeling.*

    Tiger lady off to protect her hubby! Or is it foxy lady? Lol

    *This is Xian Wang Fu, this is not Lin Ping Junzhu Fu where you can do as you will!”*

    Damn right! So much satisfaction in this chapter I cannot even…!

    *Looking at Yan Jin Qiu who was sitting at the table, she curled a finger and smiled seductively. “Little Beauty, come over and kiss Jiejie.”*

    Oly moly! Hahahaha Damn cute couple! To start the chapter with cheers of ‘you go girl! Tell that biatch truth!’ then segue to uncontrollable giggling. This has capped off my day slendidly.

    Another great chapter guys! This batch was super duper lovely XD

  2. Awwwww such a nice ending for the sister visit :3

    he even felt that Hua Xi Wan’s slap had another kind of style

    Maaaan… You’re in, deep maan. Very deep 😂😂😂

    And wow there is hotpot! Guess the author love hotpot huh? I wonder if the other novel (other than TBAVW) got hotpot too 😊

    Thank you for translating! Its a nice break from MTLing Princess Wei Yang 😂😂😂

  3. Yan Jin Qiu, can you spare your wangfei a little bit…. and you said you aren’t lusty?????

    maybe it’s just me……

      1. It’s not really that out of sorts. Think about it, the only woman he’s shown any kind of lust for so far is his wife and she brings it on herself most of the time 😛

      2. I just think he was speaking from a place of (this cannot be the right word, but) innocence as regards his own desires. He simply didn’t have the right conditions under which to judge until now. (He wouldn’t even consider having more than one wife in this lifetime, and he was not yet wed, so…)

      3. Yes, I also had extremely raised eyebrows while reading that line =w=

    1. Its not just you at all. In my mind i was also saying, “Yan Jin Qiu ah, please dont break her waist. Sore today, sore tomorrow, it is sore everytime and you dare claim you are not lusty ah!!” Lol

  4. Thanks for today chapters, so happy because of it.
    This couple is really suit each other.


    She’s so bad-ass!!! Who cares about virtuosity, that sis in law better thank the heaven, HXW didn’t break her leg

  6. What a sweet ending. It’s enough to give one cavities. Then you remember there’s a dungeon somewhere in that fu… lmfao.

    HXW has a volcano’s temper. Mostly she’s cold and sleeping, but when she erupts… damn. Although I wonder how much of it is just her being, well, an actress – not that the gesture means any less.

  7. So sweet, its really make my day. Thank you so much…the roar, the slap, the night, the sore..

  8. Such a couple, each filling up each other’s flaws. >~<

    Thank you for the chapter ೕ(⁍̴̀◊⁍̴́ฅ) fu

  9. “Even the coldest and most calculating man understood love, and even the laziest woman was treasured by someone.”

    I just really really love that line. (๑>◡<๑)

      1. Sure, but you generally have to look these days. I like alone enough, no need to go to all that effort. ┐(´∇`)┌
        Oddly, I like the sentiment – for everyone else.

  10. “Someone like her is just asking to be hit and scolded. She already called me a demoness, so why should I act virtuous for her?” Ah, isn’t that true…

    “Seeing Hua Xi Wan even put aside the image of a refined and noble woman for him, he even felt that Hua Xi Wan’s slap had another kind of style.” aka, HXW is a perfect fit in his s t r i k e z o n e. (come on, what sort of man sees a woman slap someone and think “wow dat slap tho”)

    they’re such a perfect fit, yes

    Thank you for the chapter~

  11. I love this lovey dove couple when they are doing a lot of bonding. Thanks for this chapter.

  12. Thanks so much for the chapters!!!

    Well, that was great. Sadly irl too, there are folks who think the world owes them a favour just because they exist. Junzhu is a great example – selfish and rude.

    And what is with this whole “whore, whore” business. Jeez. Give it a rest. At most, she only sleeps with her husband. How is that a whore? You deserve that slap. >___>

    I also have to say I’m loving the emotional chemistry between “Little Beauty” and “jiejie” kekeke. Hao, hao.

  13. Why this sister so different from he Heng’s half sister? Although half sister, and raised by the empress herself she never treated her half brothers like this ling ping junzhu treat her brother

      1. It could also be said that this princess does not love herself enough. She loved her husband and wanted to help support him but she forgot that she shouldn’t bring harm to herself in the process.

  14. “He was not a lusty person to start with.” … *looks at the end of the chapter* … I don’t believe a single word of that. -_-

  15. This is relationship goal, you guys.
    Find a lover who thinks that even your bad habits have a style lol

    That Lin Ping Junzhu… tsk tsk… what a hypocrite. She acts as if the world owes her everything. She and Zhang shi are very similar in this area. They both think they are high above others and it’s natural for others to do as they please. So when things don’t go the way they want… they spiral down the hole.
    I’m looking forward to see the end of these two.

  16. This is a great chapter!!!

    I love this sentence the most, “This was the pot having a fitting lid”. They just freaking perfect for each other.

    Thanks for the chapters!!!

  17. Thank you for all the translations till now. Hope u guys have a great day. 😊😊

  18. Finally had time to catch up and wow did I miss slot 😱😱😱😱 our FL is too alsome! And what a husband 😍😍😍😍 how I wish I can find one like him who loves me that way 😝😝 any who thanks so much for the crazy chapters and alsomness! Cannot wait for more chapters thank you so much ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤🙏🙏🙏🙏😁😁😁😁

  19. what not a lusty person…went for a full course and perhaps a round two haha
    thank you

  20. Wow. What a satisfying chapter. That bratty junjhu got her just desserts. Bravo HXW! 👏🏻👏🏻
    And tha line : “Little Beauty, come over and kiss Jiejie.”
    Hahahahaha it had me in splits. 🤣🤣🤣

    1. Never done it before doesn’t mean that she would never do it 😆😁. So, congratulations to this Junzhu for the grace of experiencing it the first time. Next time she might do it better when there come again someone asking for it 😛.

  21. I just can’t believe that a person could be that stupid. She’s coming to ask for a help but all she did since they met was scolding and insulting. Forget about currying favor, she doesn’t even show any friendly smile at all. Is she actually begging for help or a creditor taking a loan back?!?
    Who is gonna help someone calling one’s wife a whore in front of one’s nose?! This Junzhu is sick beyond cure. She is actually the best partner for the crown prince.

  22. it took me a while to realize that in the last bit, YJQ went for another round again. Poor HXY, I guess your waist will feel even more sore.. XD

    And can we talk about how HXY confronting the sis in law to protect YJQ, is so damn cute?!! It’s like YJQ is her little chick ~

  23. Dog food everywhere (spongebob rainbow gesture)
    More more! Woof woof! (wags tail)

Tell me something
