Ba Ai Mou Qin by Xin Xin Xiang Rong Chapter 15 Part 2

Jincheng lifted his cup and drank the liquid down to the last drop. His smiled for a while, then his face became gloomy again, frustrated that she only allowed him to kiss her the other night and nothing more. He felt played with, she brought his hopes up and left him hanging.

Jincheng suddenly laughed at himself, she wanted to break up with him, and his worried about not getting any?

Jincheng put his hand on Ye Chi’s shoulder, with an unusually depressed voice he said, “Ye Chi, I found out that women are incomprehensible creatures, for example, look at her, she wals into the bar and checks you out from left to right, then what happens if you try to walk up and talk to her? She disappears into thin air. You can’t let yourself get affected by them.”

Ye Chi looked down at his friend’s wedding ring, “What’s wrong? Didn’t Ji Qing ask you to come back?”

Jincheng gave a wry smile, “She’s determined to have a divorce and even go to court with me. Ye Chi, do you think I’m too easy? I waited for two years, but until this very day, I don’t understand a single thing about what she’s really thinking.”

Ye Chi frowned, “Jincheng, when you ordered flowers for her, didn’t your wife get it?”

Jincheng shook his head, “When we were newlywed, this were different, I used to go out once in a while to find entertainment, but then I changed, I became serious with her, I wanted to live with her, but what did she Say? She refused! Then I wanted it to last forever, but she wanted to end it, that’s what happened…..”

Ye Chi laughed softly, “Jincheng, buddy, let me tell you! Women’s heart is not much bigger than a needle, they are unreasonable and spiteful, and that includes your Ji Qing. At my home, it requires a soft balance to maintain the peace. Women are capable to remember bad things that you did to her 800 years ago. Another thing you should remember is that you always have to avoid other women, whether at work or any other place. You may be the head of the family, but she’s the one who makes the decisions. If you do all that, it would guarantee the long term stability of your relationship. And that my friend is the science of marriage!”

The wine had caused Ye Chi to open up, Jincheng looked at him with astonishment, but his friend was right, even though a man wears the pants in the family, but if his wife shuts the door on him, he won’t look at all good.

“Ahem … …” Ye Chi gently coughed twice before saying: “with that being said, t marriage takes work, it takes work … …”

Jincheng suddenly burst into laughter, Ye Chi’s word was deep and serious, “Ye Chi, to tell you the truth, I think you’re a real piece of work.”

Ye Chi  nodded to acknowledge, but laughed: “a piece of work, buddy you’re right … …”

Jincheng and Ye Chi stumbled out of the bar, they should have done this sooner, who knew, a lot of good would come out of it.




Okay guys, after a long break here’s the first part of Chapter 15. I want to thank Sammy for providing me with the raw file. This Chapter is was a little bit difficult for me to interpret, even with my crazy and wild imagination. But this was the best that I can come up with, trying to work my mind around the many many idioms used in this chapter.
By the way, for your information, I have a tendency to be egocentric and narcissist, so any negative comments or nonconstructive criticism would not be posted and will be brutally deleted. I do however, welcome anybody who will kindly volunteer to review the raw translation and correct the interpretation I did in this post, or point out any grammar or spelling mistakes (nicely!).
Please enjoy…….

BAMQ Chapter 15 Notice

Hi Guys,

This week you will have to bear with me a bit for the translation. You see, for somebody like me whose Chinese vocabulary is limited to “Wo Ai Ni” translating Chinese novels chapters at a time can be frustrating. There are a lot of gray matter and imagination involved, and sometimes it just gets overwhelming. To give you an example I have to turn this:

That cold cold of blamed tone, makes Ji Qing full grievance rushed up, is around find not to vent export, abruptly hold has back, she not knows the how with seal Jincheng explained these, too trivial, say, even she explained has, doubted seal Jincheng will think she in sophistry, and children sick is facts, facts before, she said what are extra, only this unit grievance hard hold has back, can orbital is couldn’t help began some Misty, that share moisture, fundamental cannot control.

Into this:

Hearing him blaming her, Ji Qing filled up with grievance, she looked around to find a way not to vent her anger, trying hard to hold herself back. She didn’t know how to start explaining the situation to Jin Cheng. And even if she tried, she doubted that Jin Cheng will believe her. The fact is the child is lying there sick. She felt a misty haze building in her eyes, she was losing her self-control.

As you see I do not literally translate, I paraphrase the paragraph, so you would need to excuse the deviation from the original author’s writing style, but I do my utmost to keep the content intact. Just think of me as a script writer adapting your favorite book into a drama :P.

Why am I writing this? Because the translation of Chapter 15 on the engines is somewhat screwed, so I have to pick deeply into my “right side of the brain” to make sense of it.

Okay, back to my Word Document now, wish me luck…………….

Ba Ai Mou Qin by Xin Xin Xiang Rong Chapter 14 Part 2

After calming down, Ji Qing gave herself a chance to reflect, what Jin Cheng said was true, as a mother she was somewhat to blame for Xue’s condition, she led her daughter to suffer sickness, Ji Qing felt a streak of regret in her heart. The apology from Jin Cheng, made her realize that maybe given a chance he can be more understanding. Her chain of thoughts was interrupted by the sound of Xiao Xue’s coughing.

The child is too young, she will not endure so many sickness. Crying endlessly while coughing, with phlegm stuck on her lungs, she tried to cough it out, but her face turned flushed red, almost purple.

This really scared Jin Cheng, he felt a panic not knowing what to do. Ji Qing hel her child and coaxed her gently, patting her back and coaxing her to spit out the phlem.

After coughing and crying for some time, Xue, fell asleep, all spent. Ji Qing carefully place her in the bed, a drop of sweat was beading her brow, she shrugged seemingly to wake up again, Ji Qing held her again to cradle her to sleep.

“Let me hold her, while you rest….” Ji Qing turned her head, she placed Xue in Jin Cheng’s arms, to her the sight seemed somewhat strange, and he was still awkward making a very unnatural posture. Unexpectedly Xue didn’t wake up though, she remained asleep comfortably.

After ensuring that the child was sleeping better, he gently put her on the bed and looked up at Ji Qing,”When Xiao Xue gets better, let’s go home…”

Ji Qing’s eyes lighted up, lowered her head in silence, it’s obvious he did not want to divorce her, and he wants her to come back and live with him, she can see that he feels happy and proud about the child, and now he is offering the three of them to live together as a family.

Ji Qing felt really moved by this man, and today in just a few hours, Ji Qing had discovered a hidden part of him, an attentive, unobtrusive and sweet.

Between a man and a woman as long as there is love, you can lose all rational judgment, even if it’s a mistake and you can see it clearly in front of your very eyes, you’ll always make justifications. And she is definitely foolishly in love with him.

Ji Qing wanted so badly to go back with Jin Cheng, to continue her life beside him, even though she’s not sure if he love her or not. Perhaps love is not of that importance.

Then suddenly she Zhang Lu’s smiley face flashed before her eyes, she was shining and elegant, how Jin Cheng looks at her,  these two Jin Cheng and Zhang Lu are perfect for each other, just like if they were born to be a pair. Now she can see herself stuck in the middle, so poor and pathetic.

She did not want to be that kind of woman, dying of sadness. The constant struggle to see a smile on Jin Cheng’s face, she doesn’t want to go through that again, but at this point of time, she was to tired to argue.

Jin Cheng never knew, how this idea crossed Ji Qing’s mind over 100 times. Ji Qing was always able to change his moods, and now their child will be discharged from the hospital. Seeing that she didn’t respond he held the child fearing that she might take her away and disappear without a trace.

Squinting his eyes giving a cold look at the woman, gnashing of teeth and asked: “Are you really going to court with me to divorce? ”

Ba Ai Mou Qin by Xin Xin Xiang Rong Chapter 14 Part 1

Infant pneumonia is very common, especially with week children such as Xiao Xue, depending on the season, these infants can easily catch a high fever, cough, which occasionally lead to pneumonia. Ji Qing had wanted to give the child pneumonia vaccine, but the side effects can be too much, she was afraid that Xue’s body couldn’t stand it, the doctor’s did not recommend it, so she finally decided not to go ahead with the idea.

Jin Cheng wasn’t aware of this situation, being a first time father, seeing he daughter lying weak in bed, he felt an overwhelming fatherly love, and hearing that Ji Qing didn’t give her a pulmonary vaccine, it burnt him from the inside, when the doctor left, he sprang up

“You didn’t give the child a vaccine? What kind of mother are you? Don’t you know how difficult it is now that the child is sick?”

Hearing him blaming her, Ji Qing filled up with grievance, she looked around to find a way not to vent her anger, trying hard to hold herself back. She didn’t know how to start explaining the situation to Jin Cheng. And even if she tried, she doubted that Jin Cheng will believe her. The fact is the child is lying there sick. She felt a misty haze building in her eyes, she was losing her self-control.

She bit her lip, ducked her head, turned and sat on the Xue’s bed, giving no explanation and no resolution, just sitting there in silent. Jin Cheng felt a pang of guilt in his heart when he saw the hurt in her eyes..

In fact, he is waiting for her explanation or resolution. Then it hit him. Jin Cheng suddenly realized that his problem may be that he was never able to communicate with Ji Qing. He spoke to her, but she never responded earnestly. He who prided himself to be able to read the minds of women, but he cannot even guess what is going on inside his own wife’s head.

When Ji Qing left him, he never stopped to analyze what she was thinking or feeling that made her suddenly leave. In fact, he always believed that a few months before she left him their relationship was improving.

He realized that he would always snubbed her during their newly wedded period, every time she tried to express herself when she wasn’t satisfied with something. Even so, in the last few months, he felt that they bonded well, both body and soul, he was going through a tender feeling of joy, sort of like a rebirth.

When Jin Cheng was out socializing or even away from home, he was always anxious to hurry home. He kind of had a sense of belonging to his own home.  He was being less picky on things, and when she disappeared, he always though on how to reconcile those feelings.

So now he realized that he has to clear things with this woman, but he found it not easy, she was head strong to keep a tight lip, and give him a stubborn glare.

Thinking back, he was a little bit too much. He never tried to understand his wife, not to mention now that they have a weak child between them. As a result the three of them couldn’t find perfect happiness.

This ward only have single rooms, Xiao Xue had fallen asleep, and the two adults present were not speaking to each other. This made the room seem a bit empty, Jin Cheng glanced at Ji Qing and sighed. Then turned around.

There was a sound of the doors closing, a long strain of tear tolled out of Ji Qing’s eye.  Jin Cheng came back again about half an hour later, with two insulated lunch box in one hand and then he put it on the bedside table, nothing good: “Eat! If you get sick, no one will take care of you … …”

Ji Qing hesitated and did not look up at him but opened the lunch box, the top one was her favorite thin porridge, it was a fragrant glutinous rice porridge, this man’s attention, was quite surprising.

He sat on the bed side, his hand gently touched Xiao Xue’s forehead, she was cool now, and her fever had gone down. He slipped his hand into a bag that was on the bedside table, and took out a new wash cloth, he walked over to the bathroom, and brought out a cup of warm water. Jin Cheng gently wiped the sweat from his child’s forehead. He then took out his computer put it on the bedside table and began to work.

When he finished with his work, he found that he didn’t know where to put the cup of warm water in his hand, suddenly he felt a warmth radiating from the cup, tickling his internal organs,  a nice and comfortable feeling warming his heart.

Jin Cheng lifted his head and looked to the other side, he saw Ji Qing, she was dazzling under the soft light of the wall lamp, and the warm light stained her eye brow, hairline and temple, creating an exceptionally soft contour, her eyelids slightly drooping, casting a perfectly symmetrical facial feature.

Feeling his gaze on her, she lifted her head and looked up at him. His eyes were reddish, then he softly murmured, “I’m sorry….”

Ji Qing looked at him with surprise, what a miracle, the man apologized to her. To be honest, this was a bit of a shock, magical in fact, especially coming from Jin Cheng. With his arrogance and machismo, apologizing to a woman just seemed out of the question.

The Mrs. Long San Who Wishes To Be Divorced Part II

The fourth day after Feng Ning’s departure, the Feng Ning and Yu Mama who should have originally arrived home before noon, still had not returned. Long San couldn’t help but admit, he was extremely worried. He sent someone to inquire after them; and finally after nightfall, Yu Mama and Feng Ning’s chariot reached home.

Feng Ning jumped down first, and seeing Long San standing by the door, happily rushed over: “Long San, Long San, I’m back.”

Long San nodded his head in reply, then saw Yu Mama unexpectedly limping down supported by a servant, and said in shock: “What happened here?”

Long Er received the news and came out, the moment he saw Yu Mama’s injury, he frowned and shot a look at Feng Ning. Feng Ning waved her hands and shook her head: “It’s not my fault, Yu Mama twisted her foot.”

Long Er coldly glanced at her again, and did not say anything. He sent someone to call Doctor Chen, then went over himself to help Yu Mama, and went into the house.

Feng Ning creased her face: “Why is Er Bo so fierce?”

“Were you acting unruly again?” Long San’s tone was also bad.

Feng Ning pouted, and quietly admitted: “I wasn’t acting unruly, at most it would count as not being able to control my temper.”

“What exactly happened?”

“I quarreled with the elder monk, Yu Mama came over to pull me away, and as a result fell down and twisted her foot.”

Long San only felt so angry that he couldn’t even sigh, and could only ask: “How can you even quarrel with a monk?”

Feng Ning also felt quite wronged: “He wouldn’t let me eat my fill, saying something about eating less and not talking throughout the process*, these I all endured, but he starved me for two days, and after the exorcism, there wasn’t the least bit of food. On the last day he still wouldn’t let me eat more, and even wanted me to go on top of Feng Tai** and use some spell and then do the expulsion once. He said I suffered evil influences in the water, and must be immersed in water, hearing those several monks reciting some scripture thing and carrying out some kind of method, and with that basin so deep, so big……” Feng Ning gestured as she spoke: “Of course I was unwilling, so I just asked a few questions.”

Feng Ning mumbled, remembering her tone when she asked wasn’t very good, now felt somewhat guilty, and then she spoke again: “The elder monk scolded me, I started feeling anxious and my voice also became loud. Yu Mama, seeing us get rather noisy, hurriedly came over, which resulted in her twisting her foot.

Feng Ning, under Long San’s glare, became quieter and quieter, and then didn’t have anything else to say, so she acted pitiful and looked at him. Long San was somewhat angry, this woman, goes out for only three days and causes trouble. Feng Ning, seeing no pleasure on his face, also became upset, and softly blurted out: “I was starving, and also didn’t sleep well at night, Yu Mama snores, and they also wanted to throw me into the water, I already endured a lot, you can’t blame me.”

Long San didn’t know what to say, and could only shake his head, turn around, and leave. Feng Ning followed behind him the entire way: “Really can’t blame me……” But Long San didn’t respond, he walked to Yu Mama’s residence to check on her injury, Feng Ning leaned by the doorway and looked, and decided she had better retreat first.

In Yu Mama’s room, Doctor Chen attentively looked over her injury, after all, she was older and shouldn’t fall over, but fortunately it wasn’t anything major, only then did Long Er and Long San relax.

Long San said to Yu Mama: “Mama, don’t blame Feng Ning, I will properly scold her.” Long Er looked at him, Long San looked back at him.

Yu Mama replied: “That girl ah, everyday acting so crazy, the spirit can’t be expelled, we still have to think of how to deal with this.”

Long Er opened his mouth a few times, glanced at Long San, and stopped himself from saying the words “expel the person”.

Long San turned towards Docter Chen: “Are there any other methods of treatment?”

Docter Chen shook his head: “San Ye, Madame’s head injury definitely isn’t much of a problem anymore, she also doesn’t have any other problems with her health, she only needs to take medicine for her dizziness and oft occurring nightmares, the rest, I positively can’t do anything about. This matter of memory loss, is also the first time I’ve come across it.

Although this answer came as no surprise to Long San, but he was still somewhat disappointed. He and Yu Mama and Long Er talked for a while, and then returned to their own residences. As he was leaving, Yu Mama said: “San Ye, Feng Ning is indeed very different from before, but this is affair is just too odd, you and her right now are quite close, it is still better if you stay on guard some.”

Long San nodded in reply, and saw Long Er’s expression had much of the same opinion as Yu Mama; he silently walked out. He stood at the courtyard door for a while, then finally decided to return to his own room.

These three days while Feng Ning was gone, he was concerned for her, but now that she returned, he actually somewhat didn’t want to see her. If he saw her, he would think of the issue of whether to divorce her of not, and this matter made him feel somewhat frustrated.

But even if he didn’t take the initiative to see her, Feng Ning would actively come nonetheless. Sure enough during the night, Feng Ning came holding her pillow.

“Long San, let me tell you ah, these last three days have indeed been painful, the bowls at the temple is this small, one meal, one bowl of rice, with only vegetables and Tofu to fill the stomach, it is really easy to go hungry. And on top of that ah, I didn’t sleep well, Yu Mama’s snoring is very loud.” She appeared to have forgotten the unpleasantness of earlier, endlessly complaining to him.

“Then sleep by yourself, then you don’t need to hear snoring.”

“No good, I’d rather listen to snoring than drown.” After Feng Ning laid her pillow down, she lay down: “I’m going to sleep first, so tired, so tired.”

Long San looked at her peaceful sleeping face, unclear of what he was feeling, he didn’t know how she would turn out if she were to recover her memories one day, he didn’t know how she would fare after she left the Long Residence, he also didn’t know from now on, who would accompany her when she was alone and had nightmares.

Should they really send her away?


* Not sure exactly what she’s saying here, so this is just a guess.

** Again, I’m not too sure, I believe it’s just the summit of a mountain there.
