It’s time to get up. It’s very late already. We’re all waiting for you. Miss Xiao Wei. It’s… It’s not good you miss it. I… I’m going in. Miss Xiao Wei. My goodness, the imperial selection will begin soon. Why are you still sleeping? What are you doing? Eunuch, I feel bad. Don’t… don’t scare me. What’s wrong with you? My head aches. I’m uncomfortable all over. I want to vomit. My goodness, how can you be sick at this point? The selection will begin soon. I don’t expect this either. Wait a minute. I’ll go and get help now. Where is Xiao Wei? Why is she still not here? Miss Xiao Chun. stand there, please. But it’s Xiao Wei’s place. Miss Yalaerta is sick today and she can’t attend it. She was all right yesterday. Why would she be sick today? She has successfully fawned on the princes so she’s exempt from the selection. None of us can compare with her in playing tricks. Armo, are you sure Xiao Wei is sick? If she weren’t sick, why didn’t she come for the selection? As you know, we’ll be beheaded if we deceive the emperor. Armo, I’ll be out for a while. Miss Nalan, the selection will begin soon. You can’t leave. I’m going to the bathroom. Get out of my way. Well… She didn’t attend the selection because she doesn’t want to marry the old emperor. With princes’ backing, she dares deceive the emperor. Since she’s seeking death, let’s make it quicker. Are you sure she’s pretending to be sick? We’ll see when the doctor comes and examines her. If she’s sick, stop making an issue of it. Otherwise, you’ll be known for being petty. Aunt, she’s not a patch on me but the princes give preference to her. Even Consort De appreciates her. I don’t accept it. Alright. Physician Lu is here. Greetings, Your Majesty. Forego formalities. Thanks, Your Majesty. There’s something I need to trouble you today. Please, Your Majesty. A lady in the Palace of Accumulated Elegance is sick and can’t attend the selection today. You are an outstanding physician. I want you to diagnose her and see what’s wrong with her and you can treat her accordingly. She’s pretending to be sick. If she’s not sick, she’ll be deceiving the emperor and punished according to the law. I see. I will go right now. It’s not waste watching those TV plays. I acted so well. Miss Xiao Wei. Miss Xiao Wei. You are really fortunate. Eunuch. Consort Nalan heard you were sick and specially sent a physician to diagnose you. What? You… you… what… You… you… what… I… I didn’t… Eunuch. -I… -You… I didn’t cheat you. I’m really sick. I didn’t see anything. I don’t know anything. I didn’t see anything. I don’t know anything. I’m screwed. Her pulse is steady and normal. She’s obviously shamming. Soldiers, take this woman who deceives the emperor. Wait. Wait. Take her away. No. Wait a second. Take her away. Wait a second. I really feel bad. My hand itches. It’s a rash. Do I have smallpox? That’s overstated. It’s just a rash. It’s hay fever. But lady, your food and clothing are provided by the palace. How would you get a rash? Is he talking about allergy? I have no idea. But I hear drink, seafood and even flowers can all cause a rash. Everything I use in the palace is new. How should I know why I got a rash? Physician, do you think I can attend the selection in this state? If I embarrass myself and enrage His Majesty… I will give you a prescription later. Stay here and have a rest. Thank you, physician. Let’s go. I’ve been to the jaws of death again. It’s so frightening. What’s wrong with me? It itches so much. Congratulations, Sis. You were really fortunate. You were granted a lady. So were you. What’s wrong with me? But however fortunate we were, we still had nothing on someone who had seduced the princes long ago. Yes. When it comes to seduction, we’re really not in her league. Aren’t you sick? Why did you come out so obtrusively? Xiao Chun! Even your only friend despises you. You deserve it. I think I deserve it, too. Come here. I’ll tell you something. The physician said I had smallpox. If you don’t want to be infected, you’d better stay away from me. You… She… Xiao Chun, how are you doing? Xiao Wei, aren’t you sick? I thought you had an acute illness. But you look fine now. I’m indeed sick. I itch all over. Look! You’re really sick? Come with me. Let’s talk in private. You know what? It’s true that I pretended ill this morning. But the rash is real. Look! Otherwise, how could the physician sent by Nalan Rong yue let me off? I would have been dead. Why did you do that? Aren’t you afraid of death? Yes, I am. But I’m not here for the selection but to find someone. If I have to fight with women all my life in the palace, I’ll be depressed. Your thoughts are always so different. But that’s not what I think. I was lucky enough to get this chance. You were selected? I’ve been granted a First Attendant. But you don’t seem happy. I’m happy. I just don’t know how to cope with life here. I’ll be all alone without you at my side. I’m scared. Don’t be. I don’t know the road in front of me either. But take things as they come. Just relax and bravely face what you have to face. Things in the future have all been decided by fate. What I admire you most is that you’re content with life and don’t fear anything. I’m forced to be like that. I just hope I can find him quickly. Alright, let’s eat. Okay. Mother. You’re here, Brother Four. Yin Ti, have a seat. Another dish. Yes. Except on my birthday and holidays, you seldom come to see me together. Brother Four is busy with his duties. I’m always idle so I can see you often. He must have specially come here for something. Your brother is here for Yin Xiang. Yin Xiang got his eye on a lady and wants me to accept her as a lady official here. Ming Wei was sick during the selection and Brother Four specially came here to help Yin Xiang ask for her. What a coincidence. Are you implying something, Brother Fourteen? Mother, did you know this lady had cause a lot of tempests since she entered the palace? You know her, too? Mother, there are many people in the palace, disputes are all around. As far as I know, that lady was framed up before. Mother, you’re wise. You must have known it. Brother Four, you don’t need to defend her for Yin Xiang so hurriedly. Otherwise it’ll appear that you are concealing something. Yin Xiang woudn’t have his eye on someone who’s always stirring things up. She’s thought poorly of in the palace but she’s quite funny. She will fight injustice for someone else. Though she’s a bit ignorant, she’s honest and sincere. Yin Xiang is a man of discrimination. You’re right, Brother Fourteen, That lady is indeed a righteous person. She’s just a little rash. Mother, if you teach her personally, I believe she’ll be something in the future. Mother, you always dislike flattery. I think you’ll be satisfied with her, too. You seldom agree with each other. That lady is indeed out of the ordinary. Otherwise, Yin Xiang can’t be attracted by her. Mother, let alone others, Brother Four specially came to ask for her today, you should give her a chance. After hearing what you said, I’m filled with curiosity and I want to see what this woman have got, be praised so much by my sons. Mother, do you mean you agree? You have said so much. Can I not agree? Serve us rice, Dong Lian. Yes. Let’s eat. I’ll thank you on behalf of Yin Xiang, Mother. Eat. Thanks, Brother Fourteen. Brother Fourteen. What? Characteristically, you don’t speak for Yin Xiang. But today you did that. It’s really surprising. You think I have some ulterior motive? You cheated Miss Ming Wei because of Xiao Yu and you’re guilty about it so you want to make it up to her, right? You won’t easily do anything, but you… went to so much trouble for Yin Xiang. That’s what’s surprising, isn’t it? Speak directly. Ying Lu was promoted recently and he’s the hottest figure at court. Everyone is wooing him. Unconventionally, you started from his daughter. If you say these things to Brother Eight, perhaps it’ll work. That’s true. It’s hard to see you through. But don’t think you can easily guess what I want. Whatever your aim is, I advise you to drop ideas that you shouldn’t have. She’ just a lady. What do you think I can be up to? Or do you think that I’ll steal her from Yin Xiang? What if I really want to do that? Don’t you dare. Sometimes I’m wondering whether I’m your blood brother or Yin Xiang. Originally I didn’t intend to do that. But you care so much about Yin Xiang. It aroused my interest. I know you like it so I specially brought it for you. Isn’t this the red coral bracelet His Majesty gave you before? It’s a tribute from the Western Regions and it’s the only one in the whole palace. I know you like it so I specially brought it for you. Do you have something to discuss with me? Feel free to say it. Don’t stand on ceremony. You are so straightforward. I’ll get to the point, then. The selection is over. I want to ask for a girl to be a lady official in the Palace of Eternal Spring. I wonder who makes you so generous. Yalaerta Ming Wei. Why did you ask for no one else but her? You disagree? No. But Consort Liang asked for her, too. I’ve got to take this girl seriously, then. Prince Eight wants Ming Wei, too? I haven’t agreed yet. I didn’t expect you would ask for her, too. It has me stumped now. I didn’t mean to stump you. But both Prince Four and Fourteen came to see me for this matter, so I had to talk about it with you. It’s good that they’re of one mind. That’s not really true. Although Prince Four and Fourteen are brothers by the same mother, they seem destined never to get along. This time they came to see me for the same person and the same matter. I don’t want to disappoint them. I understand. As a mother, that’s the most gratifying. But Consort Liang… I don’t want to hurt the harmony between you and Consort Liang. If you really find it hard to decide, I’ll think of another plan. You have said so much. If I don’t agree, I will be too inconsiderate. Well, thank you. You’re welcome. Well, I won’t brother you rest. Your Majesty, there’s something I don’t understand. You granted Consort De’s request. How should we deal with Consort Liang? Although Consort Liang is Prince Eight’s mother, she’s favored by His Majesty. Why don’t I do Consort De a favor? Perhaps she will put in a word for me in front of His Majesty. You are so thoughtful. Miss Xiao Wei, I’ll stop here. From now on, you’ll be a lady official of Consort De. Eunuch, do you know who put me here? I… I have no idea. You’ll count on yourself in future. Be careful. Okay. Thanks. Goodbye. Pretend ill. Help! Stop yelling. It’s me. Do you know you could have scared me to death? Shouting loudly. Looks like you’re okay. Answer me. Was it you? What? Stop pretending.
[pretend ill] How are you going to thank me, then? Thank you? Your stupid idea almost killed me. Aren’t you alright now? You can keep your wits about you. But I’m so smart that… I spread juice of lacquer tree which can cause a rash on everyone on this note. Otherwise, you would have… The rash was your idea? I didn’t expect you’re reliable. Reliable. What is that? It is… Did you put me in the Palace of Eternal Spring? Without a follow-up plan, what did I ask you to pretend ill for? Are you ready to thank me? It’s quite late. Prince Thirteen, you should go back now. You… It’s indecent for us to stay in the same room. If Consort De knows it, won’t all of your schemes be in vain? Prince Thirteen, please. Fine. Thanks. How interesting. I’ll definitely have you. Jesus, are the ancient people all so open? You’ll be in charge of
the Pavilion of Concentrated Fragrance. What are stored here are all sorts of rare items of our palace. Yes, Armo. You’re new here. You’ll be responsible for cleaning and taking care of these items. Yes, Armo. Now you’re a lady official serving Consort De here. You have to keep your nose clean and don’t stir up trouble. Remember? Yes. I will obey rules of the palace, consider you as a model, listen to you and earnestly serve Consort De. Do you best. Okay. This is a good start. Wonderful. Unexpectedly, I would be able to touch these priceless works of art. I’m so happy. It’s the first time I’ve been surrounded by so many treasures. I couldn’t even dream about it. Stop wandering. You’ll become shiny after I clean you. I won’t be scared by you. Sorry. I didn’t know it was you. My bad. You’ve cooled down now, haven’t you? Alright, stop it. Answer me.
Have you cooled down? No. Let go of me. If you haven’t cooled down, I won’t let go of you. Let go. Did you hear me? Let go. Brother Fourteen. It’s improper for you to do that, isn’t it? You didn’t answer me. I’ll consider that you’ve cooled down. See you later. That maid is quite funny. Did he hurt you? Yes. Thank you for asking. Was he making trouble for you? I don’t know. He seemed to be apologizing. Maybe he really wanted to apologize. I won’t accept apologies of that kind. Luckily you arrived here. Have you considered how to thank me, then? I won’t thank you. Stop coming between me and my work. Even if you don’t thank me, I won’t abandon you. Everyone in the palace knows that you’ll be my woman. Thanks. But none of you princes are good men. What about Brother Four? He’s an exception. Your Majesty, this is edible bird’s nest from the South. I hear it’s good for our lungs and skins and prolong our lives. Prince Four has meticulously picked it for you. Have you given some to your wives? Yes. Don’t worry, Mother. Thank you. Greetings, Mother. Brother Four. I forgot to bring you gifts. Don’t say that. We’re a family. There’s no need to be so courteous. Now that Yin Ti is here, well, let’s eat, then. Come on. Sorry for keeping you waiting. Mother, sit. Have a seat. Nice. Let’s eat. Mother, it’s your favorite, fish face meat. There’s only a piece of it in a fish. Thank you. But I will give the best to my child. Thank you, Mother. Try this, Mother. What’s the matter? I’m okay. It’s an old illness. I’m okay. Don’t worry, Mother. I’ll find the best medicine for you. Come on, Yin Ti, try the shrimp my cooks are most adept at. Try it, too, Mother. Okay. Okay. Yin Zhen, help yourself. Try this, too. It’s delicious. -You eat it first, Mother. -Okay. You like meat most, don’t you? You were so chubby when you were a kid. -You’re too thin now. -Mother, I have grown up. Yin Ti, have a rest here. I’ve lit your favorite aquilaria. Thanks, Mother. Mother, I’ll be out for a while. Okay. Prince Four, It’s late to bake oranges， so I made pear soup for you. It can ease your cough. Thank you. Is it because of the acquilaria? Why didn’t you ask Her Majesty to change it? It’s alright. It’s not a big deal. She was so happy. But you felt bad. Sorry. I’m being officious. You mean it can remove my calluses? In my hometown, this is called “hand mask.” It can make your hands be as fair and supple as those of a sixteen-year-old girl. You cheeky girl, you always know these strange things. With my help, your hands will be in excellent condition. Armo, you’ve served Her Majesty for long, haven’t you? Was she especially beautiful when she was young? Of course. Otherwise, His Majesty wouldn’t
have loved her so much. Her faces were as delicate as tofu that’s just made. His Majesty cared so much for her. Now she’s even more charming than before. When did she start to cough, then? You’re still not giving up? That’s because I care about her and want her to get rid of it. You stupid girl. At that time, it wasn’t Her Majesty who coughed but Prince Four who was just a month old. Her Majesty was so worried and boiled fish mint for him. It’s too bad that he was taken away before he recovered. Why? It’s a rule of the palace. Princes can’t be raised by their own mothers. It makes her pain to mention fish mint or drink it. You have no idea how sad she was. Fish mint. Miss Xiao Wei, here are the medical books you want. What are you looking for? I found it. What did you find? Fish Mint. It has a hot taste and smells like fish. Thus, it’s commonly known as fish mint. It can cure lung pain and cough. Miss Xiao Wei, do you have a cough? Why are you looking for fish mint? I don’t have a cough. It can not only cure cough but also the relationship
between mother and son. What? Fish mint grows on the marshes as well as shady places in valleys. But the imperial palace is in the North. Where can I find it? Miss Xiao Wei, you’ve been talking to yourself. I don’t know what you’re saying. Please tell me. Why on earth are you looking for fish mint? Where’s Prince Thirteen? Shun’er. Keep quiet. You asked to see me so urgently. What’s up? It is for Prince Four. Why? Could you arrange for Prince Four and me
to go to the imperial wood? Of course not. Why? No reason. I just can’t. You refused without asking for the reason. Anyway, you just can’t
leave the palace with Brother Four alone. Are you jealous? I’m jealous? I just think that… I’m just afraid if you and Brother Four leave the palace alone, you’ll act on impulse and get him into trouble. What if it’s to repair Prince Four’s relationship with Consort De? What has that go to do with your leaving the palace with Brother Four? You don’t need to mind that. Just trust me. You promise? You can count on me. Shun’er, let’s go. You dressing? It’s convenient and can save you some trouble. Okay. Get on. Hold it. Sit still. Go. Fish mint. It’s not fishy at all. It’s not it. It’s getting late. Time to go back. I’m not going. I haven’t found it yet. If you keep doing it, we’ll have to stay overnight here. Go. Let me stay for a little longer. Just a minute. Who is this for? You’re so doing your best. Some drugs are wanted in the palace. I need to look for them. For real? Look at me. Say it again. Some drugs are wanted in the palace. I need to look for them. You lied to me. There’s no need for me to stay here. I’ll say it. Consort De has coughed a lot recently. I hear fish mint can cure her. You’re wasting your energy. You should have known that my mother won’t touch or eat fish mint. But if you personally pick and boil it for her, she’ll definitely eat it. And then you’ll have a good relationship with her again. No wonder you asked me to look for drugs with you instead of Yin Xiang. But let me tell you, I’m the clearest about my relationship with my mother. You don’t need to bother. But don’t you want to cure her cough? She’s your own mother. So what? Now that everything will be in vain, there’s no point in wasting energy. Okay. I will cure your mother myself. I won’t go back until I find fish mint. If you don’t want to stay here, go back to the palace yourself. You… How dare you submit me with my mother? You… Fish mint. Look. Get up quickly. Are you okay, Xiao Wei? Yes. I found fish mint. I can cure your mother’s cough. You disregarded your life
for fish mint. Prince Four, I’m sorry. I was so self-willed and you have to stay overnight here. Are you still angry with me? If I were angry with you, I would have been gone. You’re sure to catch a cold if we go back now. We’d better rest here and go back tomorrow morning. Prince Four, did you grow up on the grassland and you like carefree life on horseback the most? I grew up in the palace. I seldom go to the grassland. Are dragon fruit and and looped cake your favorites? Who told you I like dragon fruit and looped cake? Prince Thirteen. Those are his favorites. Prince Thirteen… I asked him what you liked and he fooled me. He always likes joking. You’ll get used to it. What did you ask what I liked for? No… nothing.
