Chapter 8 – General’s Young Lady vs. Transmigrated Illegitimate Younger Sister (7)
At first, Gu Shengyin was also blushing a bit. Even though she had not personally experienced it, all the people present knew what that sound meant.
Soon, however, Gu Shengyin’s face paled. As she listened closely, these two voices were unexpectedly familiar!
Now she could not continue being shy and glanced in that direction. From this glance, Gu Shengyin became deathly pale at once. That woman with a half-opened skirt, revealed fragrant shoulders, and flushed face full of spring (lust) was precisely her younger shu sister, Jiang Yunshan. The man who leaned over her younger shu sister while moving his lower body was the very person who she had an oral engagement with, Crown Prince Ji Ye!
Ji Yu looked at Gu Shengyin who seemed to have received a huge blow from the scene in front. She looked distraught and on the verge of collapsing.
Uncontrollably, he felt overwhelming pity for her in his heart. At this moment, regardless of etiquette, he supported her by lending an arm: “Do you know these two people?”
Not knowing whether it was an illusion or not, however, Gu Shengyin only felt that there was a faint scent of lotuses on his body. This season was not the time for lotuses to bloom.
When she heard Ji Yu’s question, Gu Shengyin just shook her head slightly and bit her lips.
Seeing this, Ji Yu did not ask anymore and gestured to the two maidservants behind him whose faces were filled with shock. The group quietly withdrew and left.
They walked in silence. Ji Yu finally sent them to the back mountain’s exit.
At this time, Gu Shengyin’s expression had restored its calmness. She turned towards Ji Yu and gave her thanks: “Many thanks to Ju shi (Ju scholar).”

Even though Ji Yu saw her calm face, her eyes were somewhat dazed. Knowing that she was rather absent-minded at this moment, he only said a few words before taking his leave.
After returning to the bamboo house, Ji Yu shut the door and the expression on his face changed.
His five facial features were excellent and usually wore an indifferent aloof-from-worldly-affairs expression. People would say that he looked like an immortal from above the mountains and clouds who would have a picnic in the clouds while drinking wine. However, at this moment, that compassionate smile disappeared. The pair of warm moist eyes unexpectedly revealed a chilly and stern look.
“Go investigate who the woman that came today was. Additionally, investigate the woman who was having sexual relations with my second younger brother.” His voice was cold and hard without a trace of affection.
From a corner in the house came a low “Yes” that couldn’t be located. Afterwards, a breeze blew through and the bamboo became completely quiet.
Ji Yu poured himself a cup of tea and slowly sat down on the rattan chair.
He recalled that woman he met during the day.
In fact, as soon as Gu Shengyin came to the bamboo house, he discovered her and was attracted by her eyes.
They were not feigning its purity and innocence. Those eyes contained genuine curiosity for everything.
He watched her because she was amazed at seeing a weird plant. She was surprised by a small insect that suddenly flew out from the flowers and looked at it with interest. Of course, all of this was what Ji Yu saw from the expressions in her eyes. Gu Shengyin had never been pretending from beginning to end. She had always maintained the perfect appearance of a lady who came from a noble family.
It was this contrast that had interested Ji Yu. Of course, he did not know that this type of appearance, in another place in a distant world had a specific name for it called, contrast meng (moe gap).
His nature was cold ever since he had been thrown into this place by his own father for more than a decade. He had already acquired an orderly and calm temper, and few people or things could enter his heart.
Gu Shengyin was one of them.
However, based on her reaction today, she seemed to have some sort of relation with his second younger brother. Ji Yu furrowed his brows.
Is this the legendary love at first sight?! Someone’s gonna have some bad luck soon because of a certain jealous person. *wink wink*
Translating this took longer than I thought.
