ENG SUB【庆余年 Joy of Life】EP03 范闲林婉儿“鸡腿”定情

Have you ever heard about that the cliff of a snow mountain once fascinated numerous people? Legend has it that, there were treasures at the peak but also there was a bottomless chasm hidden over there. The smart, the fool and the kind people, all are familiar to you. On the mountainside, on the cliff, on the cloud, and in the human world, snowflakes are drifting profusely and disorderly. Joy of Life Season 1 Episode 3 What does the temple worship? Any temple for worshipping is a divine temple. How could you not know that? Divine temple? When heaven was separated from earth, giant monsters ran wild. Master from the divine temple came to earth with dignity and virtue, teaching mankind characters and etiquette and helping mankind cutting mountains and making seas, thus laying foundation for the human race. Haven't you learned that from your parents? Mythology. You really don't know who I am? Anyway, don't step into the main hall. No ambushes. Is it really a coincidence? No statue of God as I expected. Mythology. For me, I never believe in God. Yet, I don't know how I came to the world. If there really is a divine temple, please do send down an envoy to explain to me. If you give me the answer, I will do you the favor of believing in you. Food and accommodation all covered. Just think about it. My Lady! My Lady! Have you seen My Lady? No. My Lady! My Lady! =Lin Wan'er, daughter of Nanqing Prime Minister Lin Ruofu= I have a question for you. Are you an assassin? Not really. Then, are you sent by the God? Not really either. I think you are. Who... who are you? Are you OK? I'm fine. After vomiting several times, I just get used to it. My Lady! My Lady! Are you leaving? Are you with that man of importance in the main hall? Hand, please. I forgot to ask her name. My Lady, where have you been? I'm so worried. My Lady, are you OK? I'm fine. My Lady, how come you're smiling. You run about every time we come out. I'm so sacred. I'm certainly happy to come out. It's better than taking drugs everyday in my room. The imperial physician said sick as you are, you can't afford to catch a cold. My Lady, how come you cough blood again? I'm fine. I just get used to it. Oh no, you're confused. Rise and go! When did you get back? Young Master, I've waited for a long time. Follow that carriage! Where are you going? That way. Well. Young Master, aren't we going back the mansion? Who told you to go to the mansion? Follow that carriage! Make a turn. Make a turn! Over there! OK! Over there! That carriage! Make way! Make way! Make way! Make way! Make way! Guards, clear the street. Make way! Make way! Make way! Make way! Go away! Hurry up! Make way! Everyone! Hurry up! Make way! Everyone! Your Majesty, we can move forward now. Rise and go! Your Majesty, it's my fault the young man suddenly appeared during the worship ritual today. Your Majesty, I'm willing to take punishments. The worship ritual went on smoothly today. The worship ritual went on smoothly today. =Gong Dian, Deputy Director of Imperial Guards of Nanqing= The worship ritual went on smoothly today. You've done well. Though today's worship ritual was not announced publicly, the temple was well-guarded by the imperial guards. Yet, the young man was able to pass various invisible sentries easily. I'm afraid something was wrong. I plead that the imperial guards be investigated thoroughly. You've hit him by palm. Yes. What do you think? Possessing profound internal strength at such a young age, he's kind of outstanding. Your Majesty! Considering what happened today, we'd better investigate the imperial guards. No need! Stop him! Ask him over. Yes! Let him pass! On the entrance road to the city, there were maidservants from the imperial harem trying to stop the carriage. We've killed them all. I see. Some imperial guards came and left. What a pity! I can't hear their words clearly. My Lady. My Lady. You've been smiling after coming back from the Qing Temple. Have you found something interesting? Nothing special. I just met someone interesting. Others don't matter. I just hope that the Young Master of the Fan mansion is also an interesting person who can make you so happy. I know you don't want to marry him. But it's a marriage granted by His Majesty. I... Well... Your Majesty! =Emperor Qing, Nanqing's emperor= Who's that young man? He must be the bastard son of Assistant Minister of Ministry of Revenue from Danzhou. He's called Fan Xian, I think. Tell me what you think. That young man suddenly appeared today. It was not an accident. It was... It was arranged by Your Majesty. Why should I arrange that? I dare not guess Your Majesty's intentions. Speak! It's... It's because Your Majesty wanted to see him. On the entrance road to the city, someone tried to ruin his reputation with maidservants. Who do you think that might be? I don't know. You don't know? Or you dare not tell? Judged from common sense, it might be the Crown Prince. The Crown Prince? By making such a guess, I've already born the rebellious sin. I just dare not keep silent to Your Majesty's question. Your Majesty, I'm willing to take punishments. Did Fan Xian kneel down in the side palace hall? I've paid attention. Fan Xian didn't kneel down in the Qing Temple. Refuse to kneel down before the God. It tastes bad. But don't forget to leave two taels of silver. Yes. Gong Dian. Yes, Your Majesty! I heard that the Crown Prince gave you a painting, and you like it very much. I acknowledge my sin! Let's go back to the Imperial Palace. It's natural for man to have hobbies. That's no sin. I see. Here we are, Young Master. Careful! Careful! Careful! The carriage will be returned to the back door. Young Master, please enter the mansion by yourself. Return? You're not from the Fan mansion? I am Fan Xian. I am Fan Xian. Young Master. This way, please. The side door? Is that my father's order? Master is still out in the Ministry of Revenue. This is ordered by Madam Liu Ruyu. If Liu Ruyu really wants to kill you, I'm afraid it won't be easy for you to enter the Fan mansion. Young Master, please come with me. Why aren't people talking in the yard? Madam Liu Ruyu is having an afternoon nap. Where's she napping? In the backyard. She's napping in the backyard, yet no one dares talk in the whole mansion! Is she tough? Young Master, please don't say that. Keep your voice down. Stop talking. She is certainly of means. Stop! Who's that? That's the private adviser of the mansion who's in charge of bookkeeping. I can't hit you that far. Stand here. Keep running! Huh? Hide! Huh? Today, I'm gonna... You're a bookkeeping guy, but you runs faster than a rabbit. Catch your breath before chasing him again. =Fan Sizhe, second son of Nanqing Earl Sinan Fan Jian= Why do you hold a drumstick? This is not a drumstick. It's a girl. Girl? Do you understand? Neither do I. What's this? I don't know. You don't know? Do you know who I am? Probably. All right. Then open it for me. Why not open it by yourself? Has Fan Xian arrived at the inner yard? Not yet, Madam. What takes him so long? Shall I go check out? No hurry. Let him take time. Liu Ruyu, Fan Xian's stepmother When he arrives at the inner yard, =Liu Ruyu, Fan Xian's stepmother= let him wait inside the yard. =Liu Ruyu, Fan Xian's stepmother= let him wait inside the yard. I'll see him after my nap. Yes. Come on! Try harder! Come on! Try harder! Almost open! Almost! Try harder! Try! Come on! Almost open! Come on! Come on! Come on! Open it for me! I can't open it, either. You know where this is? It's the Fan mansion. Everyone here respects me. Whatever I ask them to do, they'll do it. Now, I'm asking you to open the box for me. There's something wrong with your words. What's wrong? You just said that everyone here respects you. Right. You also said that they'll obey whatever you say. That's right. Then what if you ask them to beat you to death? If they do what you say, they'll have to hurt you, which means they don't respect you. If they don't beat you, then they are not at your command. See? You're self-contradictory. Only one of the two conditions can be satisfied. Let's go. That makes sense. Then what should I do? I have to let them beat me to death. They have to listen to me. That won't do! Whom will they follow after beating me to death? Then they can't beat me to death. But if they don't, it means they are not at my command. Is that my younger brother? Yes. Why did he chase the bookkeeping guy? Madam Liu Ruyu is taking a nap. He probably took the chance to ask for money. The bookkeeping guy runs so fast. Having been chased for years, he is quite a runner now. That kid has quite a temper. I dare not talk of him behind his back. Young Master Fan Xian, we've arrived at the inner yard. Where's Liu Ruyu? Where's Madam Liu Ruyu? Madam Liu Ruyu is napping inside. She asked you to wait. I'll wait inside. Young Master, that's not appropriate. Wait in the yard? Then I'll wait here. This yard is quite tranquil. Your Highness, I'm honored to see you. Haven't I told you before? Haven't I told you before? =Li Chengqian, the Crown Prince of Nanqing= We both love calligraphy and painting, =Li Chengqian, the Crown Prince of Nanqing= Li Chengqian, the Crown Prince of Nanqing and we share similar tastes and interests. We are friends. No need to be too polite. These calligraphy works and paintings are the most precious ones I've collected over the years. The rest of my collection have been burnt to ashes. From today on, I have no hobbies. This is the famous painting from the former dynasty bestowed to me by Your Highness. I beg Your Highness take it back. Gong Dian, you don't have to do this. Today, His Majesty said that it's natural for man to have hobbies. Your Highness, from today on, I have no hobbies. What on earth happened? His Majesty went to the Qing Temple for a worship ritual today. Why wasn't the Board of Rites informed? It was an incognito trip. Later in the Qing Temple, His Majesty met a young man. His name is Fan Xian. Then what? He's outside? Yes, Madam. He's standing there. Anxious or angry? Neither. He said he also wanted to nap for a while. Haven't I told you to keep him in the yard? Wait a minute! Why does he hold a drumstick? I've no idea. He's been holding it all the way since he entered the mansion. And he doesn't take a bite. Will it be a custom of Danzhou? Forget it! Who gave him the chair? He grabbed it himself. This young man from Danzhou might not be easy to handle. Then let's see him. You must be Xian'er. You must be tired after such a long way. I did take a nap just now. I don't mean to snub you. That's fine. That's fine. If you don't wake me up, I might still be sleeping. Madam, have a seat. The people in Danzhou are simple and honest. Now look at you. You're really raised well. Though you lack certain grace, you do seem naïve and natural. Naïve and natural. She suggests that I'm like a wild monkey! Madam, you really flatter me. Desolated as Danzhou is, I've never met someone like you. So elegant! So refined! If I didn't know in advance, I'm sure to mistake you as the principle wife of my father. The little bastard is suggesting I'm only a concubine. Where's the man with a box? Well. I came out so hurriedly that I forgot to take my reception gift for you. Wait a minute. Where is he? I've seen you. Stay where you are. I'll beat you to death when I get over. I've figured it out. Why should I beat myself to death? How should I know? Are you playing me? What do you think? Madam, Young Master didn't get the money, so he's really irritable now. I'm afraid he'll go violent. I know. Why else do I excuse myself? If I'm there, he will be restrained. What if Young Master really beats up Fan Xian? My son is legitimate. Fan Xian is just a bastard. They're radically different. If Fan Xian is beaten up the first day he enters our mansion, he will be looked down upon ever since. But Madam, I heard that Fan Xian can practice martial arts. What if he beats Young Master up instead? Just let him. Beating up the legitimate son upon arrival at our mansion, and being ferocious and mischievous without due respect for the hierarchy, how can my husband keep him? Don't you think you're a bit out of line? I'm still standing. How come you are seated? Stand up! Give me your hand! Where's everyone? How did you enter the inner yard? Who the hell are you? Fan Xian. Fan Xian. You're that bastard son from Danzhou? I actually thought you're somebody! Considering your status, how dare you trick me? Give me you hand! What's wrong with my status? I'm your elder brother. Elder brother is like father. In that sense, I'm your father. I'm so pissed! I... Stop! Ruoruo! =Fan Ruoruo, daughter of Nanqing Earl Sinan Fan Jian= Brother! =Fan Ruoruo, daughter of Nanqing Earl Sinan Fan Jian= Brother! I told you I would come. You're always my elder brother. Always! Will you come to the capital city again? One day, I will. Kneel down! I just met the bookkeeping guy. You tried to bully him again! He... he ran so fast. How could I catch him? Aren't you supposed to be studying now? I can pardon you for all these! Really? Kneel back! Give it to me. Sister, you just said you could pardon me! Give it to me! Now I punish you for being rude to our elder brother. -He's just a bastard! -Open your hand! Sister, you actually beat me for a stranger! Fan Sizhe! The other hand! Never call our elder brother by his name! Nor can you show disrespect! If it ever happens again, I'll punish you again! Do you remember? Get up! Grown up as he is, he turns to mom for help all the time. Mom! Mom! Brother, how's your trip? Come over to my room. Who came up with the name Fan Sizhe? (Same pronunciation with Versace in Chinese) Father did! What's wrong? Really nice! I'm glad he beat you! I was... Stop drinking! I was beaten! When your father come back, tell him that you were beaten. It's useless to tell him. Dad is the one who asks my elder sister to discipline me! Ruoruo is the one who beat you? Yes! Who dare beat me but her? Haven't I sent her away from home? How come she's back? How can I know? I don't care. Anyway, my hand aches now. What can I do to ease you pain? It'll be fine with money on it. Look at you! How can you beat that fox from Danzhou? I can beat him if I have money. You! The handwriting of Zhuang Mohan, a famous writer from Beiqi. You like his handwriting? It's a gift from others. The sword once used by Si Gujian, a great master from Dongyi Town. The sword of a great master? Really? I don't know. It's also a gift. Those jades and antiques are all gifts. Lend me a box. Take the wooden one in the middle. Who gave you all these gifts? Just young ladies from eminent families. Why? Asking for updates. What? The letters you wrote to me contain many chapters of the Red Mansions. The young ladies who visited me occasionally saw it and found it marvelous. Words spread so fast. Now all the unmarried young ladies in the capital city are fans of your book. They give me gifts every day for updates. Where did you learn the word "update"? From your letters. I just borrowed it. They don't know who wrote the book, right? Do be relieved. They've no idea that you wrote it. I've told you so many times. I really didn't write it! It was written by a Mr. Cao. Brother, no need to hide from me. I've written to grandma. She said there's no Mr. Cao in Danzhou. I know you're afraid that popularity might cause jealousy. Rest assured! Your secret is safe with me! No one will know you're the greatest literary giant in the world. I'd better drink some tea. That's what happened today. His Majesty didn't speak to Fan Xian? No. And he killed all the maidservants who tried to stop the carriage? Exactly. That's why you're here ripping paintings? From today on, I won't have personal relationship with Your Highness any more. I have to say something from my heart. Your Highness, I beg your pardon! Go ahead! Your Highness, you're the Crown Prince of the Eastern Palace. It's understandable that you have to associate with civil and military officials. But I'm in charge of the imperial palace and I have to guard beside His Majesty. If I develop a deep personal relationship with you, can His Majesty feel relieved? Go on! Fan Xian from Danzhou is of low birth. His Majesty didn't go out secretly to see him. Today, His Majesty also said the following words. The worship ritual went on smoothly today. You've done well. I didn't realize what he meant at that time. Later after careful consideration, I felt so frightened. His Majesty knew that I was deeply associated with Your Highness. Yet, he put me in charge of safety for this secret trip out. He certainly didn't come out to see Fan Xian, but to see whether I'll stop Fan Xian or not. As an imperial guard, I take orders directly from His Majesty. My duty requires me to associate with no officials. As an official, I should be diligent in my work and introspect myself often. It's not easy for you to give such sincere advice. Others might not dare to say those words. I've committed a deadly sin. What happened to Fan Xian today was not my planning. Fine! Fine! As for this painting, I'll take it back. From now on, we should carry out our own duties. No need to meet in private. Your Highness, thanks for your understanding. I'll excuse myself. It reads the date of your return. Who gave it to you? I don't know. It appeared on my desk last night. So today, I rushed back specially for fear that Fan Sizhe might offend you. He's really scared of you. He's very mischievous. Father always asks me to restrain him. He's scared of me from the bottom of his heart since childhood. His mother let you do that? Normally, Liu Ruyu dares not mess up with me. Really tough! Have you figured it out? How come Fan Ruoruo is back? We specially calculated the date to send her away. I've asked them. They said Lady Ruoruo got rid of them not long after leaving home, and she went back on her own. It seems that she's long known the accurate arrival time of Fan Xian. Who told her? I've checked everyone, but no one has ever told her. Then how could she know? Mom! When can I leave? Fan Ruoruo alone is already hard to deal with. It appears that Fan Xian is also cunning. Can't you focus here? There's nothing to be focused on! He's just a bastard son from Danzhou. If he behaves improperly, a good beating will do him good. We can't beat him at home. Well, I'll ask him out for lunch tomorrow. Then I'll beat him up on the street. How do you like that? Breaking tricks with pure force. That's sort of a plan. Mom! To trick him out for lunch, I'll need money for support. Support! Support! Fan Ruoruo... When I was young, she beat about the bush and tried to suppress me with schemes. Luckily, you wrote to me and taught me how to deal with her. Over these years, she know that I'm shrewd and deep, so she stops picking fights with me. However, I can't figure out who's been helping me secretly. Uncle Wuzhu must have arrived in the capital city earlier than me. Who's Uncle Wuzhu? The one who taught me to climb cliffs. His name must be kept from others. So I didn't mention him in the letters. Then why do you tell me. You're my younger sister. You're no others. Is that Uncle Wuzhu trustworthy? As to him, it's a long story. My Lady, Master's back. He asks Young Master Fan Xian to see him in his study. Keep this for me for a while. I was wondering what's the drumstick about. I'll tell you everything later. Master wants to see Fan Xian right when he's back? Yes, Madam. It's no big deal. Keep watching. Yes. Your father's attitude to Fan Xian is of key importance. Mom! What attitude? He left Fan Xian in Danzhou for so many years. Did he ever go back to visit him? That's the weirdest part. Your father is not a cold man. If he visited Fan Xian in Danzhou occasionally, I wouldn't be so nervous. But he just left him there and ignored him. It doesn't make sense. So I sent someone to watch Fan Xian in Danzhou. I just want to know whether he contacted Fan Xian secretly or not. I find it weird all the time. I can't protect you for a lifetime. You have to rely on yourself eventually. As to your future, I... Money! How much will you give me? Not a dime! No money! Then I can't beat him. I can't! I can't! Master said you could go in without reporting. In the river of history, time goes round and round. Memories about the former and present lives join each other in an endless way. In the long drunken Milky Way, one season follows another in a flash, and the wild geese are flying south. I just can't give up to be with you for my whole life. I have been hovering in the dreams for hundreds and thousands of times. I can't even say a word when I watch the flowers falling. Year after year in the wandering, I count the remaining years. Even though we can't meet each other anymore, even though we have ended up the destiny, I never feel regretful. In such a chaotic world, I still miss you as ever. I can't fall asleep under the moon. With a gentle heart, I cherish our remaining years. Even though we have to go through all the hardships along the journey, you always stay by my side, watching the falling flowers, speechlessly. Year after year in the wandering, I count the remaining years. Even though we can't meet each other anymore, even though we end up the destiny, I never feel regretful. In such a chaotic world, I still miss you as ever. I can't fall asleep under the moon. With a gentle heart, I cherish our remaining years. Even though we have to go through all the hardships along the journey, you always stay by my side...
