BBW Chapter 269 : Son, Grant Dad A Marriage (END)

It was said that since Chu Changge and Murong Yunshu returned to the Imperial Palace as Taishang Huang1 and Tai Hou2, Chu Changge had secretly plotted to take Murong Yunshu as his wife again. This might seem absurd to outsiders, but it was of great importance to Chu Changge. That was because Murong Yunshu had rejected him countless times, using the excuse of their inappropriate status and circumstances.

If this went on for long, he would be consumed by desire sooner or later.

As the saying went, everything was ready, and all he needed was an east wind3. All the preparations for his marriage to Murong Yunshu had been made, except for her consent. That day, Chu Changge carefully dressed up and tried to 'seduce' Murong Yunshu.

"Madam," Chu Changge said with an incredibly 'captivating' smile. His clothes opened slightly to reveal his chest.

Murong Yunshu, who had been reading, looked up at him, startled for a moment, and then looked him up and down. Without changing her expression, she said, "If it weren't for the fact that we already had a son together, I would truly suspect that you've been cross-dressing all these years."🤣

The smile at the corner of Chu Changge's mouth immediately stiffened. "Madam, even if you have a pure heart and few desires5, there is no need to strike such a blow at your husband, is there?"

Murong Yunshu glanced at him again and asked, "What is it today?"

"What else could it be? It's the same thing as yesterday, the day before yesterday, and the day before the day before yesterday... That matter," Chu Changge said with a defeated expression. He had tried everything he could but was constantly met with failure. If it weren't for the fact that they had a son together, he would genuinely begin to doubt his masculine charm.

"Oh, that matter..." Murong Yunshu drawled, pausing momentarily before continuing, "Haven't we already discussed this? We need to choose an auspicious day. I've already consulted the calendar, and there are no auspicious days in the next three years."

She still dares to mention an auspicious day! Chu Changge gritted his teeth in anger. I wonder who the hell made this damned almanac because not a single day in the next three years is auspicious to marry her!🦊

Seeing Chu Changge's face full of resentment, Murong Yunshu set aside the book in her hands and sighed. "You shouldn't complain against Heaven and hold grudges against other people7 anymore. It's not your fault that your eight characters are unfavourable."

"Who said my eight characters were unfavourable? Maybe it's yours that's not good," Chu Changge said gloomily.

Murong Yunshu raised an eyebrow at his remark and said, "My eight characters are excellent. Do you want me to prove it to you?"

Chu Changge: "How would you prove it?"

Murong Yunshu: "Just randomly pick a few men's eight characters and compare them with mine. Within a year, there will definitely be auspicious days suitable for marriage."

Chu Changge sneered. "No need for calculations. Your fate is strong. Anyone who marries you, apart from me, will have a short life. After matching eight characters with you, those men will meet a tragic fate within twelve hours."🤣

"You are now the Taishang Huang1, and you must set an example for your courtiers. You cannot casually take other people's lives."

"Don't worry, I won't kill people casually. I'll make sure it's a deliberate act."

“……”

"Speaking of killing, if you don't agree to marry me, I'll go on a killing spree. One person a day." As long as it allowed him to rightfully share her bed, even acting like a scoundrel was worth it.

Murong Yunshu remained unfazed and calmly responded, "If you kill someone, the wedding date will be postponed for one year. As far as I know, if you miss the auspicious day three years from now, the next auspicious day won't come for another ten years."

“……”

"You should sincerely concentrate on teaching your son how to rule the country. As for our marriage, the Murong Mansion will take care of it."

"It is my turn to marry you this time," Chu Changge said.

Murong Yunshu raised an eyebrow. "It seems we haven't discussed this matter before."

"It's not too late to discuss it now."

"Too late."

"It's not too late. We still have three years to discuss it."

"But I have already decided to marry you."

“……” Chu Changge decided to retreat for now and gather his strength, planning to fight again tomorrow.

As Chu Changge walked out of Murong Yunshu's study, he sighed deeply, unable to understand why she would not allow him to exercise his rights as a husband. According to common sense, the rice had long been cooked, and he had even made some millet as well. She shouldn't be so opposed to it, or so he thought.

As Chu Changge struggled with his confusion, a voice echoed from above.

"Leader, let me give you an idea. It's guaranteed to be foolproof," the voice said. With those words, North Guardian jumped down from the ceiling. Three others, East, South and West, followed close behind.

Chu Changge was overjoyed to hear this. He didn't bother reprimanding them for eavesdropping and asked, "What's your idea?"

North Guardian smiled smugly and said: "Just go to the Little Leader and ask him to grant you the marriage. Once the decree is given, regardless of whether the day is auspicious or not, just carry her to the sedan chair."

Chu Changge was immediately overjoyed and excitedly patted the North Guardian on the shoulder. "Good idea! When it's done, I'll reward you with a slender-waisted and long-legged maiden."

A slender-waisted and long-legged maiden? North Guardian blinked and glanced at the three brothers who were glaring at him like a tiger eyeing its prey9. He weakly replied, "Don't worry, I won't hog it all to myself."

West Guardian snorted. "I have no interest in sharing such a thing with you. But since we agreed to share the blessings and hardships, if we can't share the blessings, then we'll face the hardships together. Go and ask the Leader to withdraw this reward."

North Guardian blinked his eyes again. Under normal circumstances, shouldn't the Leader grant three more maidens so each could have one?😏

Meanwhile, Chu Changge quickly arrived at the study. "Murong, Dad has come to see you."

Sitting on the Dragon Throne, a listless Chu Murong suddenly perked up at the words. Instantly, he flew into Chu Changge's arms and asked innocently, "Dad, why are you here?"

Beside them, Hua Yeli and Nie Qing were stunned. The Emperor's power had become even more terrifying after not seeing each other for a few days. He could actually perform Heaven and Earth Great Shift11 in the blink of an eye.

Ignoring his two former love rivals, Chu Changge plopped down on the Dragon Throne with Chu Murong in his arms. He then said, "Dad has come here today to discuss a matter with you."

Chu Murong replied, "Dad, whatever you need, just say it. There is no need to discuss it."

Chu Changge laughed heartily and said, "You truly are Dad's good son. What your Dad needs is for you to grant him a marriage."

Chu Murong was momentarily taken aback when he heard these words, then immediately responded with unparalleled generosity, "Very well. Dad, which young lady has caught your eye? I will immediately issue a royal decree to bestow her upon you."

Hua Yueli and Nie Qing's faces were filled with black lines. Is this what they call a legendary deep father-son bond?

Chu Changge also had black lines streaking across his forehead. "Dad has taken a liking to a young lady from the Murong family."

"Oh. Dad wants me to bestow a marriage between Mom and Dad?" Chu Murong's face suddenly enlightened. "But aren't Mom and Dad already married?"

Chu Changge's face was filled with sorrow. "It's a long story."

"Oh, I remember now. Mom divorced Dad."

"……" Was this fellow really his biological son?

Chu Murong: "Dad, you and Mom are Taishang Huang1 and Empress Dowager. Even if you don't have a formal marriage, you will always be together. There's no need to be bound by formalities."

Chu Changge: "When you grow up, you will understand the importance of formalities. Having or not having formalities can make a big difference in how you are treated."

Chu Murong: "Dad, are you referring to Mom not letting you into the bedroom?"

"Yes."

Chu Murong: "Dad, you misunderstood. Mom is worried that your strong aura might harm my younger brother. That's why she won't let you into the bedroom."

"Younger brother?"

Chu Murong: "Exactly. Mom says that a younger brother will soon come to take my place. I've grown tired of being the Emperor for so many years."

Nie Qing: "……"

Hua Yueli: "……"

Chu Changge: "Younger brother?! Are you saying that your Mom is pregnant?!"

"Yes, Dad doesn't know?" But before Chu Murong could finish his sentence, he found himself thrown onto the table. Meanwhile, his esteemed father had long since disappeared without a trace.

きつね's Musing

As you have read in the side story, Chu Murong would have a younger sister instead of a younger brother. 😊

This final chapter marks the end of the translation of the novel. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has followed the story and commented on it. I would also like to apologise if there are any mistakes in the translations. If you can point them out to me, I will be very grateful and will correct them immediately.

After this, I will probably take on the translation of the novel 'Decadent Beauty, Achieving Fame by Seeking Comfort (DBAFSC)', if no one else continues to translate it. I really need a light-hearted novel to translate, as The Rebirth of Han Yuxi is a bit serious. But at the same time, I will take the time to edit and standardise the navigation for the older chapters for BBW. I should probably do that first while I translate DBAFSC. Okay, that's it for now. May we will meet again in the next novel. Thank you very, very much.
