Chapter 96: It Was a Sin to Have a High Status?

“Audacious!” cried Ning Shu coldly as she swung her whip, catching the sword in Duan Xinghui’s hand and flinging it away with a flick of her wrist. The sword stabbed into the wall and stayed there, quivering slightly.

All this had taken place within a few seconds. Duan Xinghui was stunned to find that the sword was no longer in his hands, then looked towards Ning Shu blankly. Today Ning Shu was wearing a very simple outfit – lady’s riding garments – and looked very valiant and heroic.

The gorgeous clothes and hairpins had been removed and there was not a single superfluous item left on her. Duan Xinghui had never seen Jiahui like this before. She was incomparably refined and cold; her gaze with which she looked at him was incomparably cold and indifferent.

For some unknown reason, Duan Xinghui felt a strong sense of loss in his heart. He had gotten used to Jiahui looking at him with a gaze filled with adoration. Having something that had always been there suddenly disappear inevitably made people feel frustrated.

Duan Xinghui felt that it was a man’s glory to have a high-status woman like a princess admire him, so he couldn’t help but feel vexed and disappointed when something that should naturally be there was no longer there.

“This general greets Princess.” Although he wasn’t willing, he still had to salute her. This was something Duan Xinghui couldn’t bring himself to accept. He, a man, actually had to salute a woman, and it was even to his future wife! He had no way of accepting this with his lofty ego.

Ning Shu scoffed. “This general? Duan Xinghui, has Imperial Older Brother restored you the rank of general for you to dare refer to yourself by ‘this general’?”

In the original storyline, Duan Xinghui hadn’t been dismissed by Li Wen, but now that he has been, his status matched Er Ya’s ironically well. Ning Shu gave a contempt-filled smile. Jiahui, who was a noble princess, even had to lower herself to look after Duan Xinghui’s egoistic male chauvinism.

But now that Duan Xinghui no longer had a status for Er Ya to look up to, how would this pair of true love mandarin ducks fare?

>Mandarin ducks stand for a loving couple, this article has more information.<

Duan Xinghui’s heart sank and he said in a low voice, “This worthless commoner knows that Princess holds a grudge against this one, but this one’s mother is innocent.”

Jesus ah. So, right now Duan Xinghui was trying to get justice for Madame Duan? Ning Shu gave a cold laugh, then said, “This princess didn’t do anything to Madame Duan, but even if this princess had, what can you do?”

Oppressing someone with your status was seriously too refreshing of a feeling. When she saw that Duan Xinghui was clenching his fists with suppressed fury, she just had to give him an extra kick in his most painful spot.

Since Duan Xinghui was the male lead of this world, he instinctively felt as if the entire world should revolve around him.

Now that he had been humiliated by Ning Shu like this, there was only one thought on his mind, which was that it was fortunate he hadn’t married this scorpion-like woman.

“Audacious and wicked commoner! Not only did you want to break into the Princess Residence, you even wanted to attack this princess!” Ning Shu articulated this loudly and clearly, causing Duan Xinghui’s ears to turn red from embarrassment.

He abruptly lifted his head to look towards Ning Shu with eyes filled with unconcealed disappointment and disgust. “Princess Jiahui, I never thought that you were actually someone like this – arrogant, despotic, unreasonable and merciless! You don’t have a trace of the virtue that women should have.”

“Do you know why I don’t like you? It’s because you’re always like this. Every single move of yours is based on etiquette, bound by rules, rigid and unnatural. You’re always flaunting your high status. Your birth doesn’t give you the right to show disdain for other people!”

“Er Ya is different. She’s lively and bright like the sun, and she never puts on artificial airs. Her simple and pure beauty is like a fresh spring wind.”

Ning Shu: Pfff

Her lungs hurt from choking on her own saliva. What kind of logic was that? Could it be that it was Princess Jiahui’s fault for being born in a well-off family, that it was a sin to have a high status? Jesus ah, this logic was unbelievable.

Ning Shu translated the spiel that Duan Xinghui had given. He had pretty much said, your status was too freaking high and oppressed me to the point I couldn’t breathe, that’s why I don’t like you.

Fuck that. Ning Shu lifted a middle finger in response.

  1. I have opened my eyes to this degree of shamelessness.

    Hey, can’t the Emperor execute this commoner for breaking into his beloved little sister’s residence… with a knife? Ning Shu just needs to do a little white lotus act and have her brother execute this worthless commoner. Mission accomplished, and she doesn’t have to do anything else!

  2. “Do you know why I don’t like you? It’s because you’re always like this. Every single move of yours is based on etiquette, bound by rules, rigid and unnatural. You’re always flaunting your high status. Your birth doesn’t give you the right to show disdain for other people!”

    Eh, really? But hasn’t every meeting she’s had thus far indicated princess never put on airs with people she liked? What rigid unnatural movement? What flaunted high status? You were shocked to see her not fawn over you when you came to attack her! You had a planned out scenario for how to respond to her (in your view) inevitable freakout at the parade! Your mom thought she could get Jiahui to reinstate you as general as well as insight Jiahui, an imperial princess, to fight for your love against a common girl!
    I f you guys had all these sorts of expectations for her behavior how could she have possibly been “always like this”?
    Screw this gaslighting bastard.
    Thanks for the chapter.

  3. I feel like putting up a pic of his, giving darts to women, then ” pretend he’s every single man around who thought the same & throw” . I’m pretty sure we would run out of space on the paper before we run out mental images…

  4. Ning Shu – One Finger Salute
    Princess J. – Heartbreak
    Ning Shu – … And that’s why I am in charge right now… Look at this idiot!
    Princess J – Just promise you’ll make them miserable. TT__TT
    Ning Shu – That’s my girl! *Giggle*

  5. In this arc, whenever I read this, I envisioned it in a strict formal royalty setting like those I see in TV drama. NS was acting so well as a high and mighty princess, then out of nowhere, a middle finger XD

    Thanks for the chapter!

  6. Eeh. This former general is seriously too much of an idiot. Even in modern times, you could be jailed for trespassing. And it’s the Princess’ Residence. While making a ruckus. Fighting with her bodyguards. With a knife. Like, wth bruh calm your tits yo. The original princess shouldn’t have fallen that much if she just stayed mum about the whole thing, even if she doesn’t do anything. Hauu~

    1. And she is a favored princess none the less! Of course, exposing his favor for a commoner so openly when she is ignorant of the world revealed already what to expect of him.

  7. also retweeting the previous comments. Like, even if he is the “world’s son” how does it make sense for an ordinary noble to try to barge into the Princess’s residence???? This is completely ignoring the hierarchy and a good way to get his whole family killed.

  8. Hohoho~
    If people still had high hopes of him being a brilliant general and martial artist now it was all destroyed by a little princess who just started to learn martial arts, so people can only think that he is a trash or the princess is too much of an unparalleled genius lol

    But really, did he lose his mind? To go after a member of the royal family with a sword in hand, isn’t it revolting/rebelling against the royal family? Doesn’t he fear for his important people? Did the glory he got from the princess favor run to his head and he can’t think properly anymore?
