Empress Running Away with the Ball! Chapter 78

Chapter 78: She’s drunk
“This is a bottle that has been aged in the palace for thirty years now, even the nobles rarely drink from this.  I deliberately stole it from the royal kitchen.  This wine has a very strong degree, so you can become drunk very easily from it.”  He kindly reminded her.
“Drunk?  Let me tell you, this lady has never been drunk before!”
The wind blew and the words Chen Ning said were a little loud.  Her body also began to stagger.
She remembered that in the Tai He Floor yesterday, she had drank over twenty cups of the pear wine, but she wasn’t the slightest bit drunk.  This also meant that she had a high tolerance.  She had only drank a few mouthfuls and Chu Shao Bai was saying that she was already drunk?
This truly was a joke.  He was clearly trying to scare her!
“Xiao Bai, you’re reluctant to drink this thirty year old wine, right?  If you don’t want me to drink, then I’ll insist on drinking!”
She once again brought the bottle to her mouth to drink, but before she could drink two mouthfuls, her body twisted and fell onto the floor.
Chu Shao Bai was already prepared and his hand stretched out, catching her.  Her body gently fell into his arms.
Hugging that soft and fragrant body in his arms again, Chu Shao Bai did not feel any happiness this time.
His lips turned into a bitter smile as he looked at Chen Ning lying in his arms.  Her eyes were already closed and her cheeks were completely red.  Even the hedgehog and turtle he had painted on her cheek could not hide how red they were.  Her breath was filled with a rich alcohol smell.
She’s drunk…...
Chu Shao Bai held the unconscious drunk girl, not knowing whether to laugh or cry.
He had not wanted to get her drunk like this, but who would have known she would drink that like.  It was truly terrifying!
It made his head seem twice as big.
“Good wine!  Let’s have another cup!”  She suddenly began to speak drunk talk and raised the wine bottle in her hand into the air, “Let’s raise our cup to the next moon in hopes that we become successful!  Drink!”
Her hand twisted and the wine bottle fell to the ground.
Chu Shao Bai felt like he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
He never thought that she would become a poet after being drunk.  Or that she would begin reciting poems.
Yi, this isn’t right!
He suddenly knit his brows.  Didn’t everyone say that young miss Chen was an idiot?
But after she had become drunk, she had perfectly read two poems, each one with vivid imagery.  He believed that even the most talented man in the capital, Zhang Han Lin would not be able to come up with this kind of poem.
[TL Note: This was a mistranslation on my part, the guy’s name is Zhang Han Lin, and I mistranslated it as mister Zhang of the Han Lin Academy before when it should have been scholar Zhang Han Lin.]  
This young miss Chen was a mystery that no one could solve!
When he had seen her in the wedding hall, he had felt that she was interesting and had instantly piqued his interest.
He did not expect that as he got closer to her, he would realize that she was truly different compared to everyone else.  He was completely different from all the other girls he had met before.
It was like…...She had come from another world.
“Go home, I want to go home…..”  Chen Ning turned around in his arm and muttered this sentence.
“Alright, I’ll send you home now.”  Chu Shao Bai gritted his teeth.
He felt like his heart was being pressed down on by a giant stone, being muffled.
He clearly knew that the person his third brother loved was her little sister and he was clear on the face that his third brother didn’t care about her or even looked at her.  But when she had become drunk, she still talked about going home.
Was his third brother really hold that important of a position in her heart?  She clearly knew she was living in a golden cage, but was she really willing to live inside it and not fly out to enjoy her freedom?
“I don’t want to stay here, I want to go home.  There is nothing good here, I want a refrigerator, a cell phone, a computer, and a microwave.  Oh, I also want a toilet…..”  Chen Ning gave a drunken hiccup and vaguely muttered.
“Fragrant ice?  Retrieving chicken eggs?  What brain wave?  Also what is a toilet?”  Chu Shao Bai was confused by what he heard.  He couldn’t help knitting his brows together.
[TL Note: This is a joke in chinese.  Bing Xiang (冰箱) is refrigerator in chinese, but he heard it as Bing Xiang (冰香) which means fragrant ice.  Shou Ji (手機) means cell phone, but he heard it as Shou Ji (收雞) which means retrieve chicken.  Nao Wei Bo (腦微波) means microwave, but Nao Wei (腦微) means brain waves.  And the toilet one is the same.]
