Why did MC go to the capital?
The emperor want to 'rewards' MC and her dad. He granted dad as 7th grade official and let him manage farms in surrounding MC's town. And then he made MC to be 6th grade official and managing royal farm near capital. The emperor also privately ask MC about her cheat. MC told him out of fear the emperor gonna grab it and kill her. The stone also talk to the emperor, even tho MC killed he will not serve anyone because his task serving MC will be labeled as fail, he will lose all cultivation and become ordinary stone. The emperor kinda in border gray area. He maybe good but not really inherently white good. All he wants is to be good emperor and let the country prosper. But to reach his goal and if necessary, he will kill MC to take the stone. He knows ML take interest to MC, so he let ML to woo MC. In his mind, since he cannot take the stone, better to let MC use it for him, and use his cousin (ML) to bind MC to stay loyal and close to royal family.
When MC manage the royal farm, she builds lot of greenhouses to plant vegetables. It become hot luxury commodity in capital (as usually people can only eat winter veggies like radish or cabbage). The nobles had to send people to queue everyday in front of ML's store because of limited sales. Later when a random 4th grade official's daughter humiliated MC because random misunderstanding, ML then banned all that 4th grade official's family to buy veggies (it's in early winter). Making the whole capital laugh at the official's family. ML also dig that official bribery history making him lost his job.
After that ML beg the emperor to gives MC a title 'so nobody can bully my wife!' and grant MC a house previously own by ML (he wants to gift it himself but restricted because of propriety reason). The next day, emperor summon MC to be in the morning cabinet meeting. MC came with sleepy look and cough (it's early winter morning), so the emperor let her to sit. The other officials want to protest but the emperor said : 'quick! Give her a seat! If official Yu sick we all going to eat radish and cabbage in new year!'. The other officials silently think, well, let the girl sit then, my stomach cannot afford the abuse and horror of cabbage everyday. Her title is Jin An Xianzhu.
How old when she got the title Jin An Xianzhu?
13yo, and ML almost success in wooing MC. MC even tell ML 'let's wait until I'm 16yo,if u still like me, then let's engage at that time, and marry when I'm 18.
What drama happened in the capital after mc came there?
Mostly about MC is just lowborn people and a woman so she is not worthy to be official. And a random official daughter stupidly try to bully MC in the flower gathering. MC got few new friends tho. Then MC selling her veggies, fruit at high price (become luxury items because it's off season produce). I still in ch 500, it's still about MC inviting bunch of friends to enjoy fruit picking in her farm near capital (it's ML's farm but ML gift it to MC)
What do you use to read the raws?
Open the raw in chrome app will auto google translate it. After rape ur brain with the bad grammar for a while, u will get use to it and understand the stories. It will be better if u half understand chinese tho. The side effect is ur grammar will be suck after that.
Actually, there was a trip to the capital before that, starting in chapter 332 and returning in chapter 347.
MC and her dad were brought in to look over the imperial fields that were set aside for the newly imported corn crops, to help the fields there achieve the same yields as their fields back home. (Which basically just involved MC having her magic stone invest spirit power into the wells used to water said fields.)
MC also got to know her baby adopted brother better. And watched the fireworks as ML keeps coming over to avoid the white lotus cousin who's been visiting his mom (because he can sense the green tea bitchiness behind her mask).
Then, as she was visiting ML's mom, the emperor's right hand man comes to get the imperial doctor who's been staying at the wangfu because the future crown prince was thought to be poisoned. He also brings MC along once he sees her there, because he's aware that she's got a history of creating medical miracles as well. Her magic rock was able to determine there's no poison, but that the prince ate something unclean and was suffering infantile dysentery. Of course it turns out she's right, and the empress is very grateful. MC also makes some digestive candies and other treats for the young prince, winning bonus points from the kid too.
Of course, the previous emperor also shows up to visit his great grandkid, and then immediately shanghai's MC to cook for him. He also tries to convince her to open a bbq meat shop in the capital, and MC is starting to come around to the idea, though not ready to actually do it yet. Before leaving the capital, she also bakes a three tier cake for her adopted little brother's bday party, winning much acclaim from the high status guests.
Who is this baby adopted brother?When was he adopted and what is his story?
it's MC's adopted dad's baby. Long short story, when Zhao dad with MC went to town, he met old acquaintance passing by. This is General Fang, he was Zhao grandpa's disciple in the past. Zhao grandpa himself is general from previous dynasty, after being defeated by 1st emperor, he run incognito with his son (Zhao dad). The 1st emperor didn't blame Zhao grandpa, when General Fang captured by 1st emperor (back then), he got job offering from 1st emperor instead. Later Zhao grandpa and dad both titled as general by current emperor and send to the northwest border. Because of this, Zhao Han lost his potential ML seat because the author decide to throw him as well to military camp (LOL).
General Fang himself was stationed in the nearby town to oversee the harbor expansion by emperor (which later lead to ML's fleets to docking in that harbor and MC met him again). He was deeply impressed by MC because of her cooking and decided to take her as adopted daughter. He didn't have any child before meet with MC because of old battle wound. After MC nurse him and Lady Fang, they got a baby boy (this is the adopted bro). The couple keep loving MC tho, and treat MC very good. The adopted bro loves MC very much, even better to MC than his mom (because MC feed him delicious food). Later, when MC already in capital and close to ML (but still not yet officially with ML), ML bribed this 3-4yo lil bro to call him jiefu (sister's husband) with lots of toys (LOL).
What about the royal family? What was there reaction to mc?
Did anyone try to get between mc and ml?
What did they do and what was there ending?
Royal family is a group of big foodie. From the 1st emperor, he is transmigrator, ex military in past life, so in this life he manage to win the empire. He especially loves MC's pork dishes, and almost always become party crasher if MC make 1 for free food (and still has audacity to ask his favorite dishes to MC). When MC married, the next day in the morning MC supposed to served tea to elders, the 1st emperor suddenly crashed in and snatched the eldest seat to get the tea from MC. Then proceed to telling MC to be filial to elders and whenever there is good food must be share to grandpa (jing wang almost didn't want to admit this foodie is his dad). His foodie genes is so strong even ML's nephews from his sister is foodie. The sister's husband once very confuse how his sons become foodie, after he seen the way the 1st emperor snatching food, he realized it comes from the emperor's side gene.
The 1st emperor has 3 sons, the eldest is Duan Wang (still alive), the current emperor's dad. He didn't become emperor because his body is very bad after the war. So he usually nursing his frail body in sourthern area. That's why the 1st emperor skip his son generation and directly giving the emperor's seat to his grandson (beside the grandson is also transmigrator). Jing wang is the 2nd son, and the 3rd son is idle prince.
The emperor (ML cousin), in the previous life is Sze chuan native (famous for their spicy food), so he ask MC to develope spicy menu in zhenxiulou. Later when MC open her ice cream cafe and cake shop, he comes incognito to eat ice cream with his close eunuch (Su Ran).
Su Ran, was formerly spy of former empire, but he changed side and loyal to the emperor. He is super handsome, and MC loves to 'appreciate' his handsomeness to the point ML feels threatened. If SR is not an eunuch, ML already try to 'eliminate this hidden danger'. Later SR has feeling toward MC like brother/father loves. And likes to make ML jealous because SR know MC likes to watch his face.
The queen, MC saved her son multiple times. So she is very amicable toward MC. Later when MC disturbed by rumour spread by official daughter (who later the dad KOed by ML) about she can make people younger, the queen helped MC to verify the truth of the rumour. And then become shareholder of MC beauty clinic.
The emperor has 1 son and 1 daughter, the son born from the queen, the daughter born from Li fei. Both the queen and Li fei look in friendship and no dead palace rival. The prince is foodie too (it runs in blood), he especially loves MC's cakes. When MC comes to the capital for the 1st time, the prince got sick, so the emperor send SR to get doctor at Jing wangfu. SR met MC at Jing wangfu so he invited MC too (because he knew MC has medical knowledge. All the imperial doctors convince it's poisoning case, but MC with the stone's help find the cause is dysentery cause by dirty food. So when the prince conditions become worse after imperial doctors treatment, MC step in and the prince healed. When MC goes to palace kitchen to make porridge for the prince, the 1st emperor comes and almost steal the porridge. So MC has to cook for him too. Then waaaaaay later when the emperor holds autumn hunt, the prince almost killed by tiger, but saved MC. The culprit is 1 of the pregnant palace concubine's brother, later the brother killed and the concubine thrown to cold palace and die. The princess likes MC and her sweets, but she didn't get too much screen time so nothing much to tell.
Jing wang couple - in the past Jing wangfei almost died because of poison, so jing wang always feels remorse about that. The doctor said to the couple, jing wangfei's life expectancy is not that good. But after jing wangfei met MC and nursed by MC, she become healthy and younger (thanks to MC's skin care products) than before. Later jing wang has sense of crisis because he looks older and older while his wife become younger, so he tells his wife to secretly ask MC anti aging cream and wrinkle cream.
There is this 2 women wants to get in between MC and ML.
The 1st is jing wangfei's maiden family daughter. Miss Jiang is super green tea bitch with crazily stupid tactics. For ex, she pretends to fall from the stairs hoping ML gonna catch her. ML directly jump aside, letting her face to kiss the floor. And disturbing jing wangfei until nite waiting for ML to return. ML then runaway to military camp and refuse to come back home until that miss Jiang gone. Jing wangfei also pretty much fed up with this niece, she directly send her back home to get married to others.
The other woman is niece of Jing wangfei from her sister who married to an officials surname Wu, he is only 5th grade official. He was stationed at faraway place before and just return to capital after ML pursuing MC. ML in the past got bad reputation because of his violent temper, but this cousin never really seen his violent side, instead she saw ML smiling to MC. The thing is, this miss Wu has pure Yin body, in the past she got disturb alot by ghost because of this. Later she got amulet that can protect her. That amulet makes her immune to ML's perception. Miss Wu then makes a lot of visits to jing wangfu. ML who got very rude mouth directly sneer at her shamelessness. Then later when MC visit jing wangfu, she can see this miss Wu pursuing ML. So ML directly goes to miss Wu's house to tell her not disturb him anymore. Miss Wu's mom is super stupid, directly angry and spew a lot of hurtful words to ML. ML who disturbed by miss Wu's amulet become violent and destroy Wu house. This accident even alert a lot of people, ML finally snap back after MC calls him (imagine there is handsome chinese hulk in raging mode and MC calling him 'the sunset real low...' ). MC pissed by this miss Wu destroy miss wu's amulet. So miss wu haunted by ghost again. Later when there is bday party of MC's friend, MC directly snub miss wu (nobody gonna help miss wu, cause nobody want to offend MC for 5th grade official's daughter).
Made funnier when MC gets called in because the maid she left running the shop deduced the emperor's identity, so MC served his 2nd helping herself. And then she gets into this huge debate with him in the private room over whether it's possible to get chocolate. The emperor saying that it's impossible because chocolate hasn't been invented yet in the West. MC saying it's possible because Columbus was said to have brought back cocoa beans, and that should be enough to start making dark chocolate from first ingredients. The eunuch Su Ran is just sitting there listening to these people yell at each other using vocab that he's never heard of, and has pretty much deduced at this point that the emperor (and his grandpa) and MC all reincarnated from the same place.
MC and the emperor make a bet on whether the latest naval expedition will bring back cocoa. I'm guessing MC won, since she's later selling chocolate confectionery, and it's mentioned that ML started planting a cocoa tree orchard/plantation on some small tropical island (presumably in the south china sea?) for her.
It's implied in one of the last chapters that the princess ends up with MC's little brother.
The amulet was also created by an evil or incomplete rite, and was actually harmful to that girl's body. So it was basically either destroy the amulet and let her become targeted by ghosts, or keep the amulet and she'll die in 5 years. After MC destroyed the amulet, the girl was tormented by ghosts so much that she couldn't sleep and her nerves were shot after one day. Her mom took her to the buddhist temple, where most ghosts can't follow. Later on, the mom persisted on begging the head monk for 81 days until he consented to give the girl another charm to keep off the ghosts. By that time, the girl had undergone a huge shift of personality... basically converting to buddhism and practicing zen and stuff. The next time she and MC/ML met, she was able to regard them with completely still heart, and there was no further interaction after that. So in the end, you could say that this girl got a good ending after all.
what bout the other family members of the MC?
I know the MC, Dad and Younger Brother resolution.
What happened to the Twin sister (any misunderstanding shenanigans since they look alike?), the elder brother that almost died (what Job/ did he marry etc), the mother i assume just sat at home but did anything happen to her anyway?
The twin sis never has any misunderstanding or quarrel with MC. Their taste of man is different so there's no competition about male. And their look slightly different too, so people close to MC never making mistake. Besides the twin almost always stay in village, unlike MC that always moving around. She later married to the orphan from neighbor village. I forgot his name, i think it's Mo something (sorry been reading other novels, so i lost few details). He was MC and twin sis's friend whenever they swim. When pirates episode happened, he was nearby and heard MC's warning. Then he went back to his own village to warned the villagers. But nobody believed him except 5 families that close to him, those 6 then runaway to mountain, the other villagers wiped out by pirates. He and the 5 families later moved to MC's village after pirates gone. Since then, he become closer to MC's twin. He manage seafood supplier business later.
Elder brother later married to same village woman (surname Liu). He later manage family's farm business. A woman in the village try to compete for big bro attention, but he is like dead wood. She then asked MC to 'help' her to be with big bro, because 'she is helpless and her mom gonna sold her to old man as concubine', MC too lazy to help, just send her to work at restaurant.
Mom and dad stayed the same, farming and happy lives. Occasionally went to capital to meet MC.
What happen to the grandpa yu? He pass away in the end, stay in the capital or stay with mc parents?
What happen to physician You?
Did the dumpling magical stone ever return to goddess nuwa side?
What happen to "tiny" the roe deer in the end. Is it a magical creature or some sort?
Any snu snu or lovey dovey moments worth mentioning btwn mc and ml?
Thanks in advance to all the questions answer.
Grandpa - kicked by Zhang shi from his own house after their divorce. Then stay with MC's dad family. Until the end of the story. Well, at least no story about his death or something.
Physician You - he didn't play any important role after he back. He barely mentioned in the rest of the story.
The stone - his punishment to mortal world by Nuwa was to serve a master. And to return, he must accumulated merit by helping the master. Every little help, it will return his cultivation bit by bit. He later can transform to physical body, 1st to small orange kitten (people just confused why MC's kitten never grow up after few years), then when his cultivation back completely, to human. MC later said to him, maybe Nuwa send him to mortal worlds to understand human and their hardship better.
He finished restoring his cultivation after MC married to ML. Then he said goodbye to MC and ciao to his world back. MC just a bit sad, but she knows it's the time for him. But, just a week or 2 after his departure, he missed MC and decided to check on her. Turn out MC is kidnapped by random rebels want her drug recipes, almost lost her baby (she didn't know if she is pregnant).
The stone directly saved MC and he said how MC is so unreliable without him, so he decided to sticked around until MC's death. In super tsundere mode. MC super glad he stayed helping her. Since he now can transform to human boy, MC just acknowledge him as her adopted brother. ML cannot really say anything because he know it's a stone that live at MC's bracelet before. And the stone is helping them.
Later after MC and ML's death (114yo and 120yo, they really has SUPER LONG AGE), the stone secretly send their soul to MC's original modern world. MC then returned to her body (coma for months). And met ML who now a doctor, he once told by MC about her transmigration to their world due to her felt down the stairs. So he aim to be neurologist and looking for patients with head trauma from stairs accidents (LOL).
The deer - uuuuggghh... This is 1 of those characters the author conveniently forgot to mention again. Honestly, after wolf incident, the deer barely mentioned. I just hope it's not eaten by pirates when they ransacked MC's house.
Speaking of the pirates, ML was in the capital when the pirates attacked the coast. He rushed to MC's village by sacrificing few horses. While his dad's private army following but arrived few days later. When he knew some dirty pirates sleep in MC's room, he got angry and bulldozed MC's house. MC was speechless because she knew the house was perfectly fine the night before when they sabotaged the ships. ML just said it was collateral damage by his army when they killing the pirates.
Snu snu moment.... Honestly... They got direct and honest relationship. So they have lots of those lovey dovey moment. But I wont spoiled your reading experience.
Ps. They will have 3 kids. 2 boys and a girl. The eldest kinda yandere. While the 2nd boy kinda girlish (he looks like MC, and daddy's favorite), while the girl looks like ML (grandma Jing wangfei's favorite, she finally got her wish having daughter with ML's face), has super stronk body and bully personality. Both ML and MC often called to their school because their daughter hits others.
Physician You found his long lost relatives and took in a nephew or something as a formal student. MC had already learned everything she needed to in order to cover up her magic water, so she wished them well.
hi, can i ask you how the ML wooed MC? Like all the events happened until after they got back from the other world?
