Rebirth of Glory and Splendour Chapter 120

Both Jun Hua and Yi Yin had been to Shanglin Park countless times, and the so-called wandering around naturally didn’t mean to be near the main palace. If that were the case, it would be no different from taking a walk, and Jun Hua wouldn’t need Yi Yin to accompany him.

What Jun Hua wanted to do was to go to the vast hunting area outside, because with his rudimentary hunting skills, he could never go to those places by himself. Not only would he get nothing out of it, but he would also have to make a bunch of guards work to protect him. It was better not to go.

Yi Yin was different. He spent his childhood in Fuyu. It was not an exaggeration to say that he grew up on horseback. Since he returned to Yujing, the first place in the spring hunt every year was out of anyone’s reach, and no matter how dissatisfied others were, they could only compete for second place.

If it had been in the past, Jun Hua would definitely be embarrassed to trouble Yi Yin. Yi Yin didn’t like him, and if he burdened him with something, he would probably avoid him altogether.

But with that magical experience, Jun Hua changed his mind. He found that Yi Yin’s attitude towards him didn’t seem to be as bad as he thought. Otherwise, what reason did he have to be so good to Little Monkey since he was a child? The source was actually in himself.

Later facts proved Jun Hua’s guess. Yi Yin didn’t refuse the requests he made. He said he wanted to raise a little white tiger, and Yi Yin promised him to catch it. He said he wanted to go outside, and Yi Yin took him directly on horseback.

The tame prey in the hunting ground was docile by nature and couldn’t withstand Yi Yin’s destructive power. In a short time, the two returned with a full load.

The only regret was that Jun Hua overestimated his physical condition, and when he came back, he had a severe fever and lay in bed for three days and three nights.

Of course, there were benefits to being sick. It apparently struck a nerve, and Yi Yin came to visit every day, making Jun Hua almost wish he could stay feverish for a few more days. Yi Yin’s attitude change came too suddenly, making Jun Hua feel incredulous.

In fact, after Jun Hua’s condition improved, the relationship between the two didn’t become estranged.

They say that people’s hearts are the most difficult to satisfy. The more you get, the more you want. Jun Hua hadn’t believed this before, but now he did.

Originally, he only wanted to get closer to Yi Yin. He didn’t like that Wei Yang was the only one in Yi Yin’s eyes, especially since Wei Yang was using him.

Later, the two became more and more familiar, and Jun Hua began to be dissatisfied with the relationship of pure friendship. But he hadn’t figured out how to confess to Yi Yin, and Yi Yin was about to go to Fuyu on a mission with General Huo Dongjun.

The outcome of that war was known to Jun Hua, with the Great Yan winning a resounding victory, but the worry in his heart wasn’t diminished in the slightest.

He was afraid that his casual actions would affect the overall situation, and he was even more afraid that the smoothness of the war would deepen Wei Yang’s jealousy of Yi Yin.

No, he couldn’t sit still, he had to do something.

Fortunately, Jun Hua knew the future. It wasn’t easy to trip up Wei Yang, but it wasn’t difficult to plan a retreat for himself and Yi Yin. Besides, Wei Su refused to acknowledge Yi Yin as a member of the Wei family. Even if he really brought Wei Yang down, he might not be able to benefit from it.

In the previous life, he and Wei Ruo were able to cooperate happily, because both sides had their own needs, but now there was no such opportunity.

Since Jun Hua accompanied Wei Yang, the battle reports could be seen by him as soon as they were sent to the palace. Jun Hua knew the result, so he didn’t care about the battle reports themselves. What he focused on observing was Wei Yang’s expression and behaviour after seeing these battle reports.

Fortunately, the leader of the army was Huo Dongjun. The smooth progress of the war was due to his good command. Yi Yin was just a general under his command and was not too eye-catching. Wei Yang was currently short of men and was pleased to see the war reports, so he wouldn’t be dissatisfied for the time being.

Seeing that Wei Yang hadn’t developed too much fear of Yi Yin at the moment, Jun Hua breathed a sigh of relief. While trying to manoeuvre with Wei Yang unnoticeably, he secretly used the trick he had learned from Little Monkey and took advantage of the right age to take Suyun Pill.

This time, the relationship between Jun Hua and Yi Yin was much better than in the previous life, but only to the extent of being good friends. Jun Hua himself wasn’t sure when he could go further; he was afraid that if he delayed too long, he wouldn’t have the chance to see Tuantuan and Yuanyuan again.

Compared with the unfamiliar family and the unfamiliar Wei Chongrong, the biggest tie left to Jun Hua by the unrecognisable world of the reborn Wei Chongrong was the twins, and he hoped that he still had a chance to see them again. 

It was not that Jun Hua had no attachment to his parents and younger brother, but they already had Little Monkey and it didn’t matter if he was there or not.

Of course, Tuantuan and Yuanyuan were not his either, they were the babies of Little Monkey and Wei Chongrong. It was just that Jun Hua and Little Monkey had shared the body for nearly a year. Although he was just a spectator most of the time, Jun Hua had empathised with Little Monkey’s experience. Otherwise, when Little Monkey was in trouble in Nanyue, he would have no way to wake him up. In this way, Jun Hua’s feelings for Tuantuan and Yuanyuan had become very complicated.

Jun Hua once heard Little Monkey say that he hadn’t been with Wei Chongrong yet when he started taking Suyun Pill, he was just planning ahead.

Now that he thought about it, Little Monkey’s words made sense. Suyun Pill had an age limit for taking it, and once you were overage, its efficacy would be greatly reduced or even useless.

Jun Hua didn’t want to make himself regret it one day in the future, so as soon as Yi Yin left, he started taking Suyun Pill.

According to Jun Hua’s original idea, he didn’t plan to tell Yi Yin about taking Suyun Pill, so as not to cause him to misunderstand. He just wanted to give himself a chance. If it really came to that day, he didn’t think Yi Yin would mind his little concealment.

Unexpectedly, the plan couldn’t keep up with the changes. After less than half of Jun Hua’s medicine was taken, the army of the expedition to Fuyu triumphed. At this point, the Great Yan had recovered all the lost territory in the north, and Wei Yang was overjoyed and rewarded Huo Dongjun and many of his generals.

Yi Yin came to Hou Zhaoyang’s mansion within two days of returning to Yujing. He didn’t come by himself, but also brought a tender little white tiger.

Jun Hua was stunned, and it took a long time before he stammered, “You, how come you’re bringing it?” 

Yi Yin was taken aback when he heard it and said, “Didn’t you want a little white tiger?” Otherwise, he wouldn’t have made a special trip to the Arslan Mountains.

Seeing that Yi Yin misunderstood him, Jun Hua hurriedly said: “I didn’t mean that, I mean… The war is busy, where did you have time…” Jun Hua couldn’t go on in the middle of the sentence. He felt that he might as well not explain, the more he said, the more wrong it sounded.

Fortunately, Yi Yin understood Jun Hua’s meaning and explained: “My task of capturing Qingjia City was completed. Instead of waiting in the city, it was better to go out for a walk.” Qingjia City was really a place full of unpleasant memories for Yi Yin, and he couldn’t stay there.

Jun Hua remembered that Yi Yin had left Fuyu after Wei Zhao killed himself, and suddenly didn’t know what to say.

Fortunately, Yi Yin didn’t pause for too long. He sighed, handed over the little tiger cub that was much bigger than the previous little kitten, and said, “The little cub is less than a month old. Except for me, it hasn’t seen any outsiders. You can raise it since it’s little and train it well.”

Jun Hua smiled slightly and stretched out his hand towards the little tiger cub curled up in Yi Yin’s arms. But the little guy was familiar with Yi Yin’s smell and was very resistant to others. Before Jun Hua’s hand touched its back, it suddenly arched its body and let out a roar.

Although the little tiger cub was small, its roar was quite loud, and its temperament of the king of beasts could be seen from an early age. Yi Yin was afraid that it would bite Jun Hua, so he hurriedly held it down, and then explained embarrassedly: “Huaixi, the little boy needs to get used a bit, should I…” At this point, Yi Yin was a bit stuck; what should he do? White tigers were very spiritual and needed to be raised since they were little, but the little tiger cub had been with him for more than half a month, and now it didn’t recognise outsiders. If he gave it to Jun Hua, he was afraid that Jun Hua couldn’t control it. But if he didn’t give it now, he would have no chance at all in the future.

“Why don’t you stay with me for a while?” Seeing that Yi Yin wanted to say something but stopped, Jun Hua hurriedly offered his idea.

Yi Yin’s eyes lit up, he smiled and nodded, “Yes, this method is good. The little boy needs to get used. I will accompany you while you get acquainted with it first, and wait until it recognises its master.” There was only this way, otherwise the little white tiger that had been caught would be his own and not given to Jun Hua.

After speaking, he glared at the little white tiger that was lying comfortably in his arms and threatened: “Behave yourself and don’t roar at Huaixi anymore, or I’ll stew you.”

The little white tiger looked up at Yi Yin blankly; one could only guess whether it understood him or not. 

Jun Hua couldn’t help laughing when he heard this. The more he looked at the furry little guy, the more he liked it, but he didn’t dare to stretch out his hand again.

Yi Yin saw what he was thinking, so he hugged the little white tiger tighter and smiled, “Huaixi, it’s okay, I’ll make sure the little cub doesn’t dare to move again…” Only when the little white tiger was familiar with Jun Hua’s scent could they talk about the two of them raising it together.

Jun Hua blinked and tried to reach out his hand. This time he just touched the fur on the little white tiger’s back and didn’t try to take it away. The little one also appeared to be well behaved and only grunted twice comfortably, neither crying out nor moving around.

In order to give Jun Hua and the little white tiger a chance to spend time together, Yi Yin stayed at Hou Zhaoyang’s residence for most of the month. As a result, he accidentally found out the fact that Jun Hua was taking Suyun Pill, mainly because the reaction to that thing was really too great.

Yi Yin was a bit confused at the time. Why was Jun Hua doing this? He was Hou Zhaoyang, who could force him to marry someone and have  children? Even Wei Yang didn’t have the guts to do so, unless…

He did it voluntarily.

Yi Yin thought about it for a while, and finally came up with this possibility, but he still couldn’t figure out who Jun Hua was doing it for.

Jun Hua had no relatives and didn’t usually like to deal with people. Except for Wei Yang, the only person who had the most contact with Jun Hua was Yi Yin himself.

But…

Jun Hua and Wei Yang had always been at odds. Although they both hid it well, Yi Yin had already seen it even when Wei Su was still there. Wei Yang didn’t like Jun Hua, didn’t like him very much.

On the other hand, Jun Hua didn’t have much affection for Wei Yang either.

The reason why the two of them were still able to maintain a situation where the monarch and the subject got along was basically due to the legacy of Wei Su.

As for himself…

Yi Yin was frightened by his own thoughts, and his mind went blank.

Jun Hua… maybe… could possibly… like him…

The 17th of the eight month of the 1st year of Zhenghe.

The first Mid-Autumn Festival of the new emperor’s reign almost coincided with the first birthday banquet of the emperor’s grandsons, and the Crown Prince’s Lord Consort, who was in charge of the overall arrangement, was busy enough.

According to Jun Hua’s character, he was the most impatient with palace affairs. Unfortunately, the emperor didn’t have an empress, and he, the Crown Prince’s Lord Consort, couldn’t shirk his responsibilities. Luckily, as a rule he divided the palace affairs between eunuchs and palace ladies in charge while he played a supervisory role.

The Mid-Autumn Festival Banquet was not much of a problem. There was a precedent, just follow the usual procedure. The trouble was the twins’ one-year-old birthday banquet. His Majesty the Emperor said that his baby grandsons would be over the age of one, so it had to be grand and magnificent, and there could be no negligence.

As a result, Jun Hua was so busy that he didn’t sleep well for half a month, but at least he managed to finish the job successfully.

It was because he was too busy that Jun Hua didn’t even have the strength to be depressed when during the Zhuazhou ceremony Tuantuan and Yuanyuan refused to pick up anything and finally picked up each other. 

The next day, Jun Hua had a free day and stayed in bed comfortably to catch up on his sleep, refusing to get up until after noon.

Wei Chongrong went to the court session early in the morning. He knew that Jun Hua had been busy for so long, so not only did he not wake him up, he also specifically ordered people not to disturb him. However, His Imperial Highness’s words were the golden rule for others, but to his precious sons, they were somewhat ineffective.

“Daddy, wake up…”

“Daddy, play with us…”

Tuantuan and Yuanyuan sat on the bed, shaking Jun Hua vigorously from left to right, vowing not to stop until they woke him up.

“Tuantuan, Yuanyuan, be good, don’t make a noise…” Jun Hua said, pulling up the quilt and continuing to sleep with his head covered.

Unwilling to be reconciled, Tuantuan stretched out his hand to pull down the quilt, but unfortunately his strength was not enough.

Yuanyuan turned his head and glanced at Tuantuan, suddenly flattened his mouth and let out a wail.

“Daddy, woo woo…” The way Yuanyuan cried was a typical “dry thunder and no rain”; the sound was loud but there was not a drop of tears on his face.

Tuantuan blinked blankly, completely unable to understand why his younger brother was crying.

The sound of Yuanyuan crying was so powerful that it quickly woke up Jun Hua who was trying to catch the tail end of a beautiful dream. No longer able to sleep soundly, he had to roll over and sit up, looking less than pleased at his two sons crawling onto his lap.

In fact, although Jun Hua was usually a little angry when being woken up, he wouldn’t be so angry that he would bother with two little children who didn’t know any better. There was a reason why he was really angry today, but that reason was, to put it mildly, perhaps a bit bizarre.

Just now, Jun Hua had a dream, and he dreamed of the long-lost Huaixi. This was the first time since Huaixi had said goodbye to him back then.

What surprised Jun Hua even more was that he didn’t just see Huaixi alone. Huaixi was holding two little identical-looking dumplings. Opposite them stood a man with a back that resembled his Brother Rong. He heard Huaixi call him Ah Yin.

And at Jun Hua’s feet, there was a majestic big white tiger lying on the ground, tall and with smooth fur. The two little dumplings seemed to like the big white tiger very much and stretched out their hands towards it desperately, causing Huaixi to be so busy that he could barely hold them.

The big white tiger also seemed to like the two little dumplings very much. He raised his eyes and looked at them but remained motionless obediently.

Seeing that the two little dumplings were about to cry because their little short hands couldn’t touch the big white tiger, Jun Hua laughed happily. He was about to get closer and see the scene in front of him more clearly, but he was awakened by Tuantuan and Yuanyuan. Naturally, he was quite upset.

Not long after, Wei Chongrong came back from the court and saw that the adult one and the little ones were both angry, so he asked curiously what happened.

Jun Hua curled his lips and briefly explained the whole story. After speaking, he sighed regretfully: “It’s all the fault of Tuantuan and Yuanyuan. If they hadn’t made so much noise, I would have been able to see more clearly. I don’t know when the next time I dream of them will be.”

Tuantuan and Yuanyuan were too young to understand Jun Hua’s words, but they could instinctively feel that their daddy was complaining about them to their father, so they both stretched out their hands towards Wei Chongrong and kept calling “Father”, trying to tell him of their grievances.

Wei Chongrong was taken aback, and then laughed loudly. He picked up one son with one arm and the other with the other, kissed them on both cheeks and then smiled: “Little Monkey, Tuantuan, Yuanyuan and I are in front of you, what else do you want to see…”

“Little Monkey…” Tuantuan murmured, repeating Wei Chongrong’s words, and poked Jun Hua’s face with his finger.

Jun Hua was startled, not caring about his son’s actions. After a moment, he suddenly snapped out of it, “Brother Rong, let’s take Tuantuan and Yuanyuan to play with Jiaojiao.” Jiaojiao was the name of the big white tiger raised in the imperial garden.

In the imperial garden, Jiaojiao, who had rarely been out of the cage lately, happily rolled on the grass a few times and then obediently sat down in place.

Immediately afterwards, Tuantuan and Yuanyuan rushed over with a scream and had a lot of fun playing with the obedient big white tiger.

Wei Chongrong put his arms around Jun Hua and asked with a smile: “Is the scene you saw in your dream like this?” 

Jun Hua smiled without saying a word, feeling that it couldn’t be more perfect.

THE END

Translator’s note: Oh my, I can’t believe it is the last chapter of this incredible story I’m posting. I feel so nostalgic. Living in the company of Wei Zhao, Wei Chongrong, Little Monkey and the others for months was an incredible experience. Thank you, Luo Binghe, for accompanying me on this journey! It meant really a lot to me.

I actually suspect that 99% of people who will start reading this story will never reach the end. But I liked it so much, and I hope there will be those who will find it equally fascinating, with all its quirky, intricate world and its huge cast of awesome characters. Wei Zhao, Wei Zhao, you will forever stay in my heart!

If you liked the story, please leave a good review/rating on Novelupdates. If you want to support the translator, you’re very welcome to do it on Ko-fi 🙂

  1. thank you so much for the translations and I’m glad I got to read it till the end!! (more than half in my reading list are abandoned waiting for me to read the continuation) Although the story usually made me stump with soooo many characters across generations with countless names, titles and tangled relations, I still enjoyed reading them nonetheless. A grand applause for you!!!

    1. Thank you!!! 🙂 🙂 I’m really happy to hear it! I know how you felt – I felt the same when I was reading it 🙂 So, translating it helped me figure out who is who and what relationship they have 🙂 🙂 It was fun 🙂

  2. once again thank you so much my dear translator, love love the story, and thank you for translating it. damn i love happy ending

    1. 💕💕💕 I’m happy to hear you enjoyed it! I loved it very much! I’m so glad Yi Yin and Jun Hua in the previous life also got a happy ending 🥰🥰🥰

  3. Yep… It’s perfect…!
    Much better than I actually wish or expect. So happy the parallel world get their own happiness with Twins and Tiger. I can’t stop smiling… (๑˃̵ ᴗ ˂̵)و

    Also… I can’t help but laughed. Knowing the spoilers of the sequel (which I actually grateful for the spoiler), the author sure is a daring one who keep doing the Cousins Relationship so much!!! 😆 lmao
    I never have problem with it so I would love to read the sequel as well as long it no more angsty than the prequel.
    (My deceased grand parents of my father’s side were cousins after all. Though in arranged marriage thing more or less, but married happily and all children are healthy)

    I honestly feared I would get bored by political novel, but I’m glad this novel truly exciting and keep being intriguing!

    And rare time where I honestly didn’t have problems with the Slow Romance because the Childhood life of MC with his Dad are just the Best!!!

    And less tension because 3/4 part of family members are caring/friendly/less hostile towards MC and his Dad. So REFRESHING!!!

    The Family Complex Scheming was more Heartbreaking and Heartaching than simply Frustrating or Maddening. Just so sad…

    Anyway I’m TRULY ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS NOVEL!!! BEYOND ANY EXISTING EXPECTATIONS AND I’M TRULY AMAZED!!!

    THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH FOR THE HARDWORKS IN TRANSLATING THIS NOVEL TILL COMPLETED!!! 🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️xForeverEternallyGRATEFUL

    1. Thank you so much!!! 💕💕💕💕💕
      Your comment made me so happy!!! 🥰🥰🥰 I love this story so much and it’s so good to hear you also enjoyed it!
      I was so happy Jun Hua and Yi Yin in the previous life also got a happy ending, I don’t remember seeing such a thing anywhere else. They both deserve happiness.
      I’m not bothered with the cousin relationship at all. It might be because all my cousins live in other countries and we see each other very rarely, so it’s not like someone I grow up with together. And in Ancient China it was normal, as long as the surname was different. Haha, in the book they even see it as a good thing, like “oh, they’re cousins, how reliable” 😅😅
      Thank you again for reading and enjoying it!!! 😘😘😘

    1. Awww, I’m really happy you liked the finale! It’s one of my favourite parts. Seeing Yi Yin and Jun Hua in the previous life happy and together was such a wonderful feeling. They don’t have their parents but they have each other and the twins (and the white tiger :))

    1. Thank you so much!!!!!! I’m really happy you loved this story!!! I love your comments, and this story is praticularly dead to me, so I’m very, very glad it didn’t disappointed you! Thank you for reading it – and for you being you 🙂 🙂

  6. I feel like a clown for finishing this in less than a week… I should have paced myself while reading but I was too curious to see what happens. What am I supposed to do now? Ugh 🙄

    I understand this story might not be for everyone but it’s certainly not bad. In fact, the author avoided many of the usual traps of rebirth stories. This was definitely good enough to make me care about most of the characters we met and experience a multitude of emotions while reading. If I were to nitpick, I would count two problems:

    The first is about mentioning many many many names without meeting the actual characters, thus making it difficult to remember them. Now, period stories usually feature a lot of characters so the number is not a problem per se. The issue was that the author mentioned them but never showed them, eg the Shangguan family. And because we never saw them interact with the main characters, we had no way to connect their names with anything tangible.

    The second is about the overall pacing. Obviously, when the story stretches in many decades, there will be several time skips. That’s to be expected. However, the author chose to mention some important events in one or two sentences while spending time on other descriptions of more “mundane events”. If it were me, I would do the opposite but that’s the author’s prerogative after all.

    Just to be clear, in my mind this has little to do with the issue of who’s the protagonist, Wei Zhao or Wei Chongrong. The author made it very clear from the start that Wei Chongrong was the protagonist, he was the one who was reborn, and it was his behaviour that worked as a catalyst to change other people’s fates. Of course, because Wei Chongrong was reborn as a toddler, we couldn’t expect him to take part in palace intrigue schemes. Thus, Wei Zhao had to be the one to make some moves. Would I like to see more of Wei Zhao during the second part of the story? Absolutely! Do I feel bamboozled about whose story I read? Certainly not.

    My dear YunYun, you have once more outdone yourself! This was NOT an easy novel to translate. Just keeping up with the similar names and similar titles must have been a headache… But you delivered an excellent project once more! I hope you take some time to rest and recharge; you deserve it after working so hard.

    1. Thank you so much!!! Your comments made me so very happy! I love this story so much, and discussing it with you was such a pleasure, and you’ve noticed so many things that I didn’t pay attention before! Thank you!!! I’m very happy you enjoyed it!
      There is something addictive about this novel 🙂 I can’t believe I spent four months tinkering with it and I still don’t feel tired of it. It was like living in the company of Wei Zhao, Wei Chongrong, Jun Hua and the others, and I got so attached to them that… the only ones I really hated were Helian Zhuo and Wei Lan, everyone else I could understand to some extent.
      Ah ah, you’re right, there are so many characters 🙂 🙂 I jsut went with the flow when reading and was drawing family trees when translating. I wanted to post a list of characters but eventualy gave up because there would be too many spoilers. I think the author’s intention was that those who are important will be memorable and those who are not are there just to create the atmosphere 🙂
      I complteley agree with you on the Shangguan family! I would love to know more about them. There is a character from the Shangguan family in the sequel, there is not much about him but what is said about him is quite insightful to the whole family (he actually falls in love with and marries Wei Chongrong’s daughter and becomes a loyal minister of Wei Qian, so the families unite in the end, you can say :))
      I’m really kinda getting burnt out after translating for so long and so much, not this story but all the stories, I am translating non-stop for more than a year. I wish I was not so obsessive and could pace it better, I tell myself every time I will translate a little and then rest – but in the end I can’t stop and spend all my time doing it. But I’m always like this, when I love something, I spend all my time doing it. When I stop loving it, I won’t spare ten minutes for it 🙁 🙁

      1. I think you’re 100% right for not sharing the detailed family trees because there are certain relationships, even beyond the big twists, which are more interesting to discover as you read. For example, Wei Yang being Wei Su’s youngest son and practically a child and Ji Yang being Jun Lin’s mother. These facts may have been implied in some earlier chapters but I definitely had “ah ha!” moments when they were explicitly mentioned.

        And thank you for replying to all of my comments! In retrospect, I feel proud for not being too far off for certain twists, although the Wei Zhao/ Jun Qing reveal managed to catch me completely off guard.

      2. Ah, I’m so happy to hear it, I also feel it’s more interesting to figure it out on the go 😊😊
        Thank you for your comments, it was such a joy to talk to you!!! 💕💕💕

      3. Thank you so much for your hardwork in translating this wonderful novel😊♥️.
        This novel is really good and i enjoyed reading this, so much. The plot is topnotch and have a good characters development.
        Really like Wei Zhao, Wei Chongrong, Jun Hua and others and i am happy about their characters development and have their happy life.
        And especially Yi Yin and Jun Hua in the previous life also have a happy ending too. So happy😊. Really love it so much🥰. Once again, thank you😊.

  7. The story was very good, I read all of it and I plan to read it again!! As an Asian we always have cousins marriage together in here so I don’t see any problem here so I don’t think it’s necessary for incest tag.
    Thank you I really loved this story ❤

    1. Thank you!!! I’m really happy you enjoyed it! 💕💕💕
      I don’t see any problem with cousins being cousins either 😇😇 But someone on NU complained how traumatised she was because there was no incest tag, so better safe than sorry 😅😅

  8. Both Jun Hua is (or are? English is hard 😅) happy with their Rongrong & two dumplings. 😍

    Thank you for your hard work, you are great translator. 😘

      1. Thanks so much for the awesome translation! Got totally hooked on the story and did not expect to like it as much as I did!

  9. I must say this book really surprised me, I initially wasn’t expecting much going into it but it’s such a unique rebirth story. It was just so so good! I couldn’t stop reading unless I absolutely had to(real life meddling with my reading schedule). The storyline was so interesting there’s never a moment that I felt bored, also it was really unpredictable. I enjoy political novels quite a lot so the political storyline was a bonus for me. I liked that it was centered more around power struggles and plotting within the family. Even though there were a lot of people and titles to remember I got used to it after a while. At first I wasn’t sure I would enjoy having to watch the mc grow from such a young age but it was so amazing to watch a character like Wei Zhao through his eyes and then get to see Wei Chongrong grow into the man he is. Their father-son relationship was one of the highlights for me. Their trust in each other just showed how much they both needed and relied on each other. Wei Zhao sticking up for his son against his entire family regardless of his origin was such a beautiful moment. I like that the plot changed so drastically just because of Wei Zhao remaining alive, it really showed how the absence of his character in the previous life affected so many things and led to more tragedies. I’m glad everyone(that I liked) got a happy ending. My only wish is that we should have gotten more of Wei Zhao and HQ. I loved their relationship so much and I’d squeal anytime they in a scene together. I hated that their scenes together were so short but I was still happy to have those breadcrumbs!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to translate this novel even though it must have been hard work. It was such a great read and your translation was amazing!

    1. Wow, thank you so much for your beautiful comment!!! It really made me so happy! When I translated this story, I hoped that there would be people who would see in it the same things that I did and would fall in love with those things. You said exactly everything I felt when reading this story! It was the same for me! I loved every scene with Wei Zhao, his siffering was unbearable to watch but his victories made me feel so good! I know, I know, I wished so much there was more about him and HQY, I would be happy with anything! But they don’t even have a single scene in the sequel, just saying that they live together after wei Zhao abdicated, so they are happy, I think 🙂
      I also loved very much the plot with the Jun Hua from the original world, it was probably my favourite plot in the second half of the story, so happy that he also had a second chance and got his Yi Yin 🙂
      Thank you once more, your comment really made my day! 💖💖💖

  10. Absolutely loved this translation and of course the story!! thank you so much!! I read the whole thing in 3 days all thanks to you !!! <3

    also I keep hearing about the sequel but can you please tell me the name?

    1. Thank you!!! 💕💕💕 I’m really happy to hear it! I love this story so much, I’m so excited you liked it too!
      The sequel is called 重生之妻君犯上, it’s pretty straightforward “pamper your wife” story 😻😻😻

  11. thank you so much for the translations!! great job❤️
    at first, i thought i won’t last until the end too 🤣 but although the warring and battles weren’t too detailed. some things were also not concluded in a satisfying scenes, ex. the execution of helian zhuo, i would love to see it 😏
    but the court intrigues are fascinating 😌👌 like i said before, it made me ignore the issues that i usually avoid in a story.
    in fact, one of the things that i love in bl story is… the whipped and loving husbands. ohohoh 🤭 as long as they are exist, then i’m happy to read.
    glad that huaixi finally has his own family too in his own world 😘 hopefully all will go well in the future. i mean, wei yang won’t poisoned yiyin or make him in danger anymore.
    let’s all hope that the author will write wei zhao and qingyang’s honeymoon travel soon 🙏 even if it’s just for a couple extra chapters to satisfy the readers.

    1. Thank you so much for reading it! I enjoyed your comments immensely! I really love this story, love the characters, and it was so much fun to discuss them with you! Thank you!!! 🙂
      I myself don’t quite understand why I liked this story so much. I think it it a book like this, either it hooks you or leaves you indifferent, but if it hooks you, it’s for real. I spent really a lot of time translating it, but it was also a very enjoyable time 🙂

  12. Surely more than 1% of the readers will get to the end!! It is such an engrossing story. I usually prefer more romance-heavy books, but the pacing, the intricacies and the characters’ relationships just kept grabbing my attention until I found myself at ch 120. Your translation was impeccable and a big part of why I liked this so much. Thank you!

    1. Thank you so much! 💕💕💕 I can’t describe how delighted I’m to hear you enjoyed it! I loved it so much, it was one of the most enjoyable translating experiences for me, and the characters are just so dear to my heart! Thank you 🥰🥰🥰

  13. Thank you so much for your translation! I have read all the way through this in few days and while I haven’t commented (I was mostly reading at work ehe) I have appreciated your translation and this entire story so so much. This ending was also really a delight, I was so happy for the original Jun Hua, it kept bothering me he was only able to look all the time before. I just want to give all of them much happiness ;; Wei Zhao was my absolute favourite and I’m really glad after all that suffering he was able to go on and did so well too. I only wish there was more about him and Huo Qingyang… I mean I loved most of the characters and cried a lot (especially for Wei Ming and his children). Few chapters ago I also skimmed the sequel with MTL and it really does seem dramatic lol. Did not quite expect the story would enter into such initial setting… But gave up pretty fast because I am unable to even understand who is being talked about in MTL.

    I think putting together *some* character list and small family tree could be helpful for new readers that get confused at the beginning but it’s probably hard to find the line before it turns into spoiler. Maybe just the character list with their (nonspoilery) titles since with them getting once mentioned by one and then the other…

    I was definitely constantly getting confused about the relationships so I went ahead and drew a family tree with titles and notes myself just so I could be like “ohhh, that’s who this person is…” but then at some point there were so many reveals it started getting too complicated to browse as well lol.

    Anyway, thank you so much for translating this!! <3

    1. Thank you so much for reading it and liking it!!! 🙂 It’s one of my most favourite stories but it is so quirky that not many people enjoy it. So I always feel delighted when I meet someone who else likes it! 🙂 I also loved the story of the original Jun Hua, it was one of the best moments in the book for me, so good that he got his own happiness. And Wei Zhao, yes, I’m still his hopeless fangirl 🙂 🙂
      I started doing the list of the characters many times but then I didn’t already remember what was revealed in what chapter, so I was confused what were the spoilers. And there are really too many characters, I didn’t even touch the Shangguans in that list, and Wei Su’s history…
      The sequel is a more standard rebirth story and I sometimes feel sorry I didn’t pick it up right after I finished translating this one. But now it seems too late. Thank you again for reading it, I’m happy you enjoyed it 🙂
