Abandoned Concubine: Kidnapping a Cute Baby to Break Out Into The World
Chapter 1 – Happy to be a Mother
“Wuu wuu … mother, you have to quickly wake up, don’t leave me alone, I’m so scared.” A child’s intermittent cries sounded by her ears.
Liu Xinmei opened her eyes strenuously, her head was aching. Has there been a mistake, when did she have children in her room?
A round face appeared in front of her eyes. Pink and tender little face, two big raven black eyes, a straight nose, and the most darnest thing was the small dimple on the right cheek.
Wow, which adult was so irresponsible losing such a beautiful and lovely child.
“Little one, what’s your name? Where do you live, let sister here send you home alright?” Liu Xinmei asked with a smile.
“Mother, don’t you recognize me anymore, I’m your son” The little guy’s little lips drew back and started to cry with a force enough to shock the heavens and earth.
Son. Mine. Liu Xinmei almost got choked to death by her saliva. She didn’t even have a boyfriend yet, where did such a big son come from? Vegetable greenhouses can only ripen vegetable seeds, when did it also have the ability to incubate human seeds.
Sitting up slowly, she was really frightened. This was a small, dark room. She slept on a used bed leaned against a wall, a dressing table was placed, the windows were made of wood, and the original color of the window screens could not be discerned.
The child in front of her was wearing a blue gown and had two buns on his head, like Prince Nezha in the animation.
“Is there anyone else here?” Liu Xinmei grabbed the child’s hand. She was anxious to know what had happened.
“There’s Liu Ye Er. She went out to make your medicine. Mother, are you better?” there was surprise in the child’s eyes.
Speaking of the devil, the door squeaked, and a person walked in with a steaming medicine bowl.
“Liu Ye Er, quickly come, my mother, she’s awake,” the child shouted cheerfully.
“The princess is awake? That’s so great, really blessed by the heavens” The woman’s voice was very pleasant.
The little girl seemed to be only eighteen or nineteen years old, with graceful eyebrows and big eyes, very good looking.
“Who are you, where is this place?” Liu Xinmei asked doubtfully, the uneasiness at the bottom of her heart was like the waves from the center of a lake, rippling non-stop.
“Princess, this is the residence of Xi Chu’s An Wang, you are the princess consort, this is the young prince, that would be your son. This servant is Liu Ye Er.” The woman quickly put down the medicine bowl and reached a hand out to test the temperature on her forehead. Did the princess become confused from the fever?
This was the end, clearly she transmigrated.
But a princess consort, shouldn’t she be wearing gold and silver, surrounded by servants, living in a beautiful palace, and enjoying a comfortable life? Was this Xi Chu a barren country, or was this lord an ignoramus, implicating even the wife and child to such impoverished days?
After searching the memories for a while, there really was a country called ‘Xi Chu’ in history, but wasn’t that the world of Xiang Yu¹? She weakly asked: “Liu Ye Er, is Xi Chu very poor? Was it caused by consecutive years of warring?”
¹TN: Xiang Yu (BC 232 – BC 202) was a tyrant in Xi Chu during the warring era. He was also the rival of Liu Bang.
“Princess, Xi Chu is very wealthy, and the land is very peaceful recently.” Liu Ye Er was confused by her master. The princess’s questions were so strange today, asking inexplicable things.
“Liu Ye Er, what’s wrong with me, why don’t I remember anything.” Liu Xinmei frowned; she just encountered a car accident on the way to the investigation. The moment she flew from the impact, she thought to herself that it must be hopeless for her to come out alive.
“Princess, are you uncomfortable anywhere?” Liu Ye Er panicked. Their situation was already miserable enough. If any other accidents occurred, it would be disastrous.
“Just can’t seem to remember anything. Liu Ye Er, tell me everything you know about me.” She had to know what kind of world she came into.
From this maid’s mouth, Liu Xinmei knew of the story behind her life experiences.
On this vast land, there existed the three countries: Xi Chu, Dong Wen, and Nan Yue; having a bit of a Three Kingdoms kind of vibe. She lived in Xi Chu, but not in the world of Xiang Yu; the monarch here is Murong Zhi.
And she was the main princess consort of the second prince, Murong Yifei, born of the first wife.
Liu Ye Er is her maid that was part of her dowry, and that beautiful baby is her biological son Murong Chaofan.
Liu Xinmei looked at the shabby residence of the legitimate princess consort, the worn clothes, and drew a big wail within her heart. Even some of the more reputable servants had more decorum than her.
“Liu Ye Er, our days seem to be very bitter.” Liu Xin frowned.
Liu Ye Er lowered her head. Such days have passed for several years, but the princess never complained before.
It didn’t really matter for herself since she was still a maid in every which way, having to serve people no matter where. Even if the food and clothing were worse off, you can only blame your own unfortunate life. But the princess was the Marquis’s biological daughter born of the first wife, having never suffered such kinds of hardships ever before in her natal family; it really has been hard on the miss.
The lord really was too much, after all there was still the young prince; he doesn’t miss the past sentiments at all.
Liu Xinmei let the maid bring over the bronze mirror and took a careful look. The woman inside had a delicate small face.
The eyebrows were like distant mountains containing jade, the eyes like spring peach blossoms, an upright little nose, and red pouty cherry lips.
How could such a beautiful woman, who when crying would be like pear blossoms showered with rainwater, when laughing would have two flowers growing in her dimples, end up in such a sad state?
“Mother …” The child snuggled up again.
“Little prince, the princess is just getting better. Don’t disturb her.” Liu Ye Er hurriedly picked up the child.
Little persimmon² haha, what about big radish Liu Xinmei chuckled. The child’s eyebrows were very handsome, just the expression was timid, like someone who had never seen the world before.
²TN: so the little prince is normally called Shizi and a persimmon in Chinese is also called a shizi, so it’s a play on homonyms.
“Liu Ye Er, this princess is not favored, but this little radish head, does he also have to suffer with me?” This father was also cruel enough. She was an orphan in her past life, and knows of how important family was to a child.
“Princess, the lord also doesn’t like the young prince very much.” Liu Ye Er’s aggrievedly sneered.
“Why” Even a vicious tiger poison wouldn’t eat its children, was this Murong Yifei iron-hearted, having such heart to throw aside such a heart-warming child? To not ask or care, were there many sons in his family?
“Speaking of which, it’s also strange. It’s only in front of you that the little prince can say a full sentence.” Liu Ye Er also secretly sighed in pity. Such a jade sculpted child, was always trembling whenever he saw the prince. Coupled with slurred speech, after a long time, just like her own lady, would end up losing favor too.
There was such a strange thing in the world, this child ought to have met with a psychological issue.
TN: Please let me know if it would be better to use Shizi instead of little prince; Lord An instead of An Wang; Wangfei instead of Princess Consort; di born instead of child born of the first wife. Otherwise, would a glossary be better? Let me know what would work the best for you readers. Thank you very much!
TN: New novel!~ I hope you all will enjoy this novel.
