      Everyone was a bit embarrassed when Wei Jun came out.
It was quite dishonorable for someone to be chased after by their wife.

      Chu Yu looked at Wei Jun.
The young man in front of her was beautiful and gentle.
Just as she had imagined, he looked more like a scholar than a military general.

      He was born ordinary and couldn’t compare to the future Wei Yun, who had astonished the whole of Da Xuan, but she felt particularly fond of him.

      She quietly looked at him while squeezing the reins and said, “Do you remember what you promised me, husband?”

      When Wei Jun did not say anything, Chu Yu spurred her horse and came to him.
She raised her hand to lower her veil and slightly leaned forward.

“Shizi promised that he would come back to lift the veil.”

      The people around were stunned when they heard this.
Wei Jun’s fingers trembled slightly.
He looked at the fiery woman in front of him and felt as if his heart had been hit hard.

      He raised his hand and carefully lifted Chu Yu’s veil little by little.

      Chu Yu’s eyes were downcast, and she looked up at him at that moment the light came back into her sight.

Her bright eyes gave birth to spring water, and she smiled brightly.

“Husband,” she said softly, “From now on, this concubine’s life will be tied to her husband.”

      Wei Jun didn’t say anything, but his heart beat a little faster.

      Chu Yu sat up straight and calmly said, “This concubine would like to accompany her husband on his expedition.”


      Wei Zhong was the first to speak, “My Wei family has no reason to let women go to war!”

      There was no shortage of wives in the Wei family, but none had ever gone to the battlefield with their husbands.

      Chu Yu wanted to argue further, “Father-in-law, I have trained in martial arts since I was young, and I have accompanied my father on expeditions in the past…..”

“That was the Chu family.” Wei Zhong frowned.
He gave it some thought and softened his tone, “Ah Yu, I understand how you want to protect Jun’er, but men have battles and women have houses.
If you’re thinking of Jun’er, go back and help your mother-in-law take care of the household chores and quietly wait for him to return.

      Chu Yu had heard that Wei Zhong was a man with great male chauvinism.
She glanced at the expressions of the surrounding soldiers; even Wei Jun showed disapproval.

      She had been prepared for this outcome, so this was only a trial.
She took a deep breath and raised her eyes to look at Wei Jun: “Alright, I’ll wait for my husband to return.”

“Don’t worry…” Wei Jun was moved, and his voice couldn’t help becoming a little hoarse when he spoke.
He knew how dangerous the battlefield was and had never felt anything in the past, but he felt a little uneasy today. 

      He bowed his head and said, “I will definitely come back safely.”

“All right,” Chu Yu nodded solemnly, “then remember that I’m waiting for you at home.
You must protect yourself well.
This battle is mainly defensive, so you don’t need to pursue the poor enemy.

      Wei Jun froze, somewhat confused.
Chu Yu stared at him and spoke again, “Promise me that no matter what, the Wei family army will never chase after the remnant soldiers this time.”

“Father would not do such a reckless thing.” Wei Jun had returned to his senses and smiled, “You don’t need to worry much.”

“You swear,” Chu Yu grabbed his sleeve and forced him, whispering, “If your father pursues the remnant soldiers in this battle, you must stop it.”

      Wei Jun was somewhat helpless.
He only thought that Chu Yu was overly worried, so he raised his hand and said, “Okay, I swear that I will not let my father pursue the remnant soldiers.”

       Chu Yu felt relieved on hearing this.
She let go of Wei Jun’s sleeve and said with a smile, “Okay, I will wait for you to return.”

       With that, Chu Yu resolutely gave way and said to Wei Zhong, “Old Marquis, I’m sorry to have bothered you.”

       Wei Zhong’s expression softened.
He was very satisfied that his son had married a wife who treated him wholeheartedly.
He nodded and said to Wei Yun, “Little Yun, send your sister-in-law back.”

       He did not wait for Wei Yun to respond after saying this and set off again.

       Chu Yu watched as Wei Jun left.
He was still in his wedding attire, making him stand out in the procession.
Wei Yun accompanied her as she watched the Wei army leave.
It was only after they had gone far away that he said, “Sister-in-law, let’s go back.”

       His words didn’t have the usual playfulness and had a little more respect.

      Chu Yu looked back at him and saw that the young man’s eyes were clear and soft.
She calmly said, “You go after them; I don’t need you to send me back.”


“A lot of time will be wasted if you escort me and then have to chase after them.
You’ll have to consume your strength when you get to the frontlines.
Don’t waste it on this.

       Wei Yun hesitated a little, and Chu Yu looked in the direction Wei Jun had left.
She had done all she could.
Wei Jun had promised not to chase the remnant soldiers, so there shouldn’t be anything left to do…. 

      But she still felt a little worried.
Although they were in a hurry and she only saw Wei Jun, she was extremely satisfied with him.
Even if they didn’t become a real couple, she would still want him as a friend.

       She turned her head to look at Wei Yun.
He had survived back then, so he must have some means.
She turned to him and said solemnly, ” Wei Yun, promise me one thing.”

“Please command, sister-in-law.”

Wei Yun subconsciously replied on seeing Chu Yu’s expectant gaze without even asking any questions.
Chu Yu spoke with a bit of a plea, “Take good care of your brother, and you must return home well.”

       Even if there is an accident, then at least this fourteen-year-old shouldn’t be left to endure the future bloody storms alone.

       Wei Yun was stunned at these words and then smiled.
“Don’t worry, sister-in-law,” his words were full of pride, “Although my elder brother looks like a scholar, he’s actually very strong.”

       Chu Yu was about to say something else when Wei Yun hurriedly added, “But I will protect my elder brother and guard him well in battle.
I’ll offer my head to you if he loses a single strand of hair! ”

Wei Yun patted his chest and gave his word of honor, clearly confident in his elder brother.

       Chu Yu wanted to laugh a little, but she was still worried.

       After some thought, she finally said, “Go ahead.
But remember,” she said coldly, “the Wei army must focus on defending the city.
The enemy should not be pursued! “

Wei Yun nodded in confusion.
He rode away for a few steps but couldn’t help but stop and look back at Chu Yu: “Sister-in-law, why do you stress this point repeatedly?”

       Wei Yun was perceptive.
He only thought Chu Yu was overly worried.

       Chu Yu was not good at lying, and after a moment of silence, she slowly said, “I had a nightmare.”

“In the dream… you chased the remnants of the army out and were defeated in the Baidi Valley.
You were the only one of the Wei family… to return.

       Wei Yun’s face instantly turned cold at those words. 

Saying such an uncertain thing just before the expedition! 

       He wanted to get angry, but the woman’s expression stopped him.

       Her expression was full of sadness, as if this had really happened.
So he blocked those words of rebuttal between his lips and said, in a stiff voice, “Dreams can be reversed; don’t just follow them blindly.”

       With that, he turned away and went after his father and brother.

       He happened to turn around again and saw the paved plain all the way to the horizon.
The tall city stood behind the woman, and the sky and earth had the unique withered yellow of autumn.
The woman in red rode her horse, independent of the old, withered yellow field.

She seemed to be saying goodbye, but she also seemed to be waiting.

       Her thin face was well defined, and her slender eyes were calm and relaxed. 

       He had seen countless women in his life, but there had never been one so stunningly beautiful that it fell into his eyes and rushed straight to the bottom of his heart.

       After seeing the last of the Wei army off, Chu Yu rode back to the Wei residence.

       The steward saw her when she returned to the Wei family and said anxiously, “Young Madam, you have finally returned.
The eldest madam has asked you to go over.” 

“Please accept my apologies.” Chu Yu nodded, dismounted her horse, and said to the steward, “Please tell Madam that I’ll be right over.”

       The steward was originally displeased with Chu Yu.
He had never seen such an outrageous bride, but Chu Yu’s apology was sincere.
He felt better and said respectfully, “Young Madam, don’t worry, you go and wash up first.”

       With that, the steward arranged for someone to lead Chu Yu back to her bedroom.
After a brief moment to become familiar with the room, Chu Yu changed into a long aqua blue dress and followed the servant to Madam Wei’s room.

       Wei Zhong’s wife, whose name was Liu Xueyang, was the biological mother of Wei Jun and Wei Yun.

      There were seven children in the Wei family, two of whom were born to the first wife; Wei Jun, the eldest son, and Wei Yun, the seventh.
Of the remaining five, Wei Shu, the second, and Wei Ya, the fifth, were born to the Liang family of the second branch; Wei Qin, the third, Wei Fang, the fourth, and Wei Rong, the sixth, were all born to the Wang family of the third branch. 

       Liu Xueyang came from a family of poets and scholars and was not so much in charge of things because of her poor health.
Wei Zhong’s mother, the old lady Qin, did not care about trivial matters, she only cared about killing and fighting.
Therefore, the family’s affairs fell on Madam Liang of the second branch.

       Xie Yun had given a good account of the Wei family’s affairs before Chu Yu married into the Wei family.
When it came to Liu Xueyang, she simply said: “This lady is soft-natured and soft-eared.
She has never lost her temper, so you don’t need to be too concerned.
On the contrary, it is Madam Liang whom you need to please.

       This was the way of survival in the backyard; the bride flatters her mother-in-law.
Xie Yun had been doing this all her life, so there was nothing wrong with teaching Chu Yu this way.

       It was just that Chu Yu had grown up around Chu Jianchang since she was young, and she didn’t like Xie Yun’s way of doing things.

       Liu Xueyang is her mother-in-law, the proper first lady of the Wei family.
As much as she respects the Liang family, she can only treat Liu Xueyang better.

What’s more, who said that Liu Xueyang was soft-natured?

       The soldiers seized the house after Wei Yun was imprisoned and dishonoured the women of the Wei family, all of whom left and fled.
Madam Liang had already collected all the money and disappeared, while the lady of the Jiang family chose to commit suicide.
Only the eldest madam carried a sword and directly killed someone.
She died under a soldier’s blade, which alerted the Emperor.

       Although it was a foolish act to risk her life, who could say she was weak when a soft-hearted woman from a scholarly family like her could carry a sword and kill people?

       With praise and admiration for Liu Xueyang, Chu Yu tidied her clothes and stood respectfully at Liu Xueyang’s door, waiting for a servant to go in and inform her.

       After a while, the servant led Chu Yu into the room.
She entered without raising her head and bowed meticulously towards the person on the couch above, saying respectfully, “This daughter-in-law has seen her mother-in-law.”

       A weak female voice came from above: “You look like a disciplined person, but why are you doing such a bastard thing?”

       Chu Yu did not say anything as Liu Xueyang was helped to straighten up.

       She coughed gently when she moved, and the maid next to her handed her a handkerchief.
After coughing lightly for a moment, Liu Xueyang looked at Chu Yu and said helplessly, “There are always battles in a general’s family.
I know that you have been wronged as a newlywed, but this is the fate of the women of my Wei family.
My sons defend and protect our country, and since we cannot serve our country by fighting on the battlefield, we should stay in the inner rooms and wait for our husbands to return.
You can’t stop your husband from going to the front for selfish reasons.
Do you understand? “

       Hearing this, Chu Yu understood that Liu Xueyang probably thought that she was going to stop Wei Jun from going to the battlefield.

        So Chu Yu said, “Mother-in-law is right, and this daughter-in-law also thinks the same way.
This daughter-in-law has some martial arts skills, so she wanted to go to the front line with shizi so that she could provide a little assistance.

      Liu Xueyang’s face looked much better when she heard this, and she sighed, “I misunderstood you.
It’s hard to have such a heart, but fighting wars is a man’s business.
As a woman, it is only proper to settle down in the house and spread the branches and leaves.” 

       With that, she beckoned, and a woman about the same age as Liu Xueyang came forward and held a box in front of Chu Yu.

“This is a meeting gift.” Liu Xueyang’s voice was much gentler.
She looked at Chu Yu with tender eyes and said, “You have now entered my Wei family.
Be obedient, and I will not treat you badly.

         She was saying to be obedient to Wei Jun’s words.
He was now twenty-four years old and had only been waiting for Chu Yu to reach maturity to complete the marriage contract with the Chu family.
Chu Yu replied sincerely, “Don’t worry, mother-in-law.”

       Chu Yu lowered her eyes as Liu Xueyang looked at her for a long time.
A moment later, she finally heard the person above her say, “Go and rest well.”

       Chu Yu answered and respectfully excused herself.

       She stood in the courtyard of the Wei family after going out and heaved a sigh of relief.

       She took out the jade pendant in her hand and thought of Wei Jun.
This person is a good man. She thought longingly, In this life, it will definitely be better.
