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.

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!).

Like Dragons Flying and Phoenixes Dancing by Ming Yue Ting Feng Chapter 17 Part 1

Sorry guys, I’ve been so tired and unmotivated recently, this chapter isn’t boring, but the latter half of the chapter kind of annoys me a tiny bit haha, so unfortunately it will only be the first part of the chapter today. The next chapter is super cute though, so wait for it!

Also, I don’t know if it was ever clarified, but Long Da, Long Er, and Long San are called as such because in Chinese family hierarchy the oldest child  would be called  老大 Lao Da – ‘Eldest child’,  then 老二 Lao Er ‘second eldest child’ and 老三 Lao San for ‘third eldest child’, and so on down the line; therefore, Long Fei (which is Long San’s name in case you forgot) is often called many different ways e.g. Long San, Lao San, San Ye, etc. All containing the number 三San (three). I thought I should mention it just in case it got too confusing because of all their different names. Hopefully I didn’t just make it more confusing haha.

The Mrs. Long San Who Wishes To Be Divorced (Part I)

Once Long San hardened his heart, he no longer thought of exactly how Feng Ning was doing at the temple, over there there was Yu Mama and there were bodyguards, Feng Ning herself also knew Martial Arts, moreover, there were no rivers in the surrounding area; she should be safe with no problems. He put it from his mind, and started arranging a search according to the portrait.

The next day, Long Er returned. The two brothers held a meeting and straightened out the context of some matters. One, was settling the troublesome affairs of the Long Family business in other parts of the country when Long Er went out this time, he confirmed that this matter had something to do with the Feng Family; second was, there were no news at all about the stolen treasure in JiangHu, it could be assumed that, if it wasn’t lost in the river, then the other party already discovered that it was a fake; third was, Long San got someone to keep an eye on the Feng Family, to watch their recent activity, but there wasn’t any information on the treasure or of the previous attack on Long San; fourth was, the two attacks and drowning of Feng Ning, should not have been the doing of the same person. Long Er hearing this, furrowed his brows: “Then it seems the things Feng Ning stirred up is not limited to just one.”

“That person that she remembered, I already sent his picture out, and yesterday also made inquiries at the places Feng Ning had often been to, no one has ever seen him. According to the past Feng Ning’s personality, she should not have had feelings for someone with this kind of appearance, those silk rope love tokens, perhaps wasn’t meant for him. As for his actual identity, let’s wait for news and then see.”

“Speaking of feelings, you should also take note of yourself.” Long Er said: “When you’re dealing with that Feng Ning, you should still keep your guard up. The so-called ‘hard to change one’s inherent nature’[1]; at that time, she was already able to fool around all over the place, so she’s not some faithful or dependable woman. Now, she’s lost her memory, and with you being friendly with her this way, she immediately stuck on to you; this can also attest to her personality.”

“Er ge, no matter how you put it, I am still her husband. These days she’s helplessly scared, naturally she would look for someone to rely on; being dependent on me is excusable.”

“This is exactly what I’m afraid of.” Long Er said bluntly: “You are starting to speak on her behalf. Lao San, any kind of behavior can be justified. But this Feng Ning, just as we were preparing to strike the Feng family, made a move and stole the item, after being caught, she immediately loses her memory. After losing her memory, her entire person changes, the item that was stolen disappeared without a trace and with no news, and now, it is a fact that she had something to do with the attack on you, all these timely coincidences are too uncanny. I certainly don’t care what kind of person she’s become now, if she’s a threat to our Long family, I absolutely won’t let her get away with it.”

“Er ge, I haven’t not guarded against her, only, just like you said, her person has entirely changed, being excessively hostile towards her is not fair.  She definitely has no bad intentions, don’t worry, I will handle this properly.”

Long Er said: “In my opinion, you should just take this opportunity to divorce her and send her back to the Feng family, and also conveniently settle the matters with them.”

Long San didn’t immediately reply, his heart somewhat hesitant.

Long Er raised his eyebrow, asked: “What?”

“Er ge, let’s wait until after we’ve finished investigating the circumstances on the Feng family, and then decide on what to arrange.”

“What does you divorcing her have anything to do with the situation on the Feng family? Regardless of what the ultimate details behind the attack and theft are, in the end it is the work of Feng Ning. She already violated all Seven Reasons for Divorcing a Wife[3], you can confidently and justly divorce her. We should take advantage of this, while we have evidence against the Feng Family in our hands, and conveniently settle this matter.”

“Then if the Feng Family don’t actually treat her well?” The one he was worried about was Feng Ning: “Right now, she no longer has memories of the past, she already feels left alone with no one to rely on, and is easily scared and flustered; then as soon as she finally becomes familiar with us, she gets divorced and sent home, if by chance the Feng family take their anger out on her, or did not treat her well to begin with, then with her living in that kind of environment, what would be done then?”

“Lao San!” Long Er was shocked: “Are you pitying her?”

Long San didn’t speak, this woman could create trouble to torment him with every day, when she spoke she would also piss people off; but he pitied her?

Long Er said: “Just be at ease, this Feng Ning has been wanting to return home all along, no matter how things are, a married woman’s parents’ home is always more favorable than their husband’s home. First divorce her, and then we can slowly investigate what the truth behind this matter is, right now this is the perfect opportunity.”

But Long San still did not say anything, he thought of Feng Ning’s sweet smiling expression, of her agreement in the letter to leave him, and also of her miserable expression as she looked at him and said: “Don’t abandon me ah, Long San.”

Sending her away, just as she finally started adapting to this house, was it really okay?

In the end, Long San and Long Er didn’t actually reach an agreement on the matter of divorcing Feng Ning. Previously, because of their ancestor’s promise of marriage, it was difficult to say anything, now it was holding evidence, the Seven Reasons for Divorcing a Wife, even an attempt on husband’s life; if these were revealed, forget divorce, they could even report it to the government.

 

 

[1] 本性难移Běnxìng nán yí – Long Er refers to this phrase which means ‘it’s hard to change one’s inherent nature’. It usually goes in the idiom江山易改,本性难移 ‘It is easier to change mountains and rivers, than to change one’s inherent nature.”

[3] This actually cracked me up haha. — 七出之条Qī chū zhī tiáo or the ‘Seven Reasons for Divorcing a Wife’ are as such: A husband can divorce his wife if she: 1. Is not filial, 2. Has no son, 3. Is promiscuous, 4. Has a tendency to be jealous, 5. Has a serious disease, 6. Is a gossip monger or has a big mouth, 7. Steals.

The Mrs. Long San Who Causes Others to Worry

This question didn’t bother Long San for very long, as he was unable to figure it out, naturally he was temporarily not impatient. He could always accommodate matters, thus he fell asleep. His hand was still being held by Feng Ning, just under the blanket, one big one small, two hands holding each other in one place. He ignored this, and quickly fell into the land of dreams.

This night, he was awaken from sleep twice by Feng Ning’s nightmares, however, when he woke up early the next morning, he still felt like he slept very well. Feng Ning was in even greater spirits, laughing very cheerfully. But she was about to leave with Yu Mama to the spiritual temple at the outskirts of the city, to let an elder monk perform exorcism. As this was arranged by Yu Mama, she was unable to refuse.

Unexpectedly, Long San could sense her unease. He didn’t point it out, but he did a few things to distract her.

He accompanied her to eat breakfast, and also drew a simple drawing of the man she spoke of last night. Feng Ning looked at it, furrowed her brows, and thought for a while and said it should be more or less the same. But she also recalled another question: “Say, Long San, that colored silk rope, it couldn’t also be his, could it?”

Long San said: “At that time, that guy had his face covered, I didn’t actually see his appearance.”

Feng Ning opened her mouth, but didn’t say anything. Long San asked: “What, did you think of something again?”

Feng Ning shook her head, Long San stared at her, staring until she felt guilty, and quietly stammered: “I was just thinking, I couldn’t have had any relationship with him right? He’s so ugly.” Mentioning the matter of relationships with other men, Feng Ning still felt ashamed and uneasy, but the truth was indeed laid out there, that man’s appearance was repulsive, one look and one could tell he was not a good person. She couldn’t have been that unperceptive and fooled around with him, right? Just thinking of this possibility made her feel quite disgusted. She curled her lip, with an expression of being unable to bear the thought.

Long San couldn’t help touching his face, fortunately he didn’t lack in looks, moreover, seeing his considerable popularity with women, and having enjoyed many admiring gazes, he should be the very good looking type.

He lifted his eyes, and met Feng Ning’s clear gaze, he hurriedly put on a stern expression, and insincerely rubbed his chin, pondering: “It seems he may not be, moreover, that silk rope, since you cannot remember clearly anymore, it also may not necessarily have anything to do with that kind of relationship.”

Feng Ning drooped her head: “Long San, you’re a good person, you’re comforting me.” This kind of situation for a man is incredibly insulting, she felt extremely sorry towards him.

Actually, she did use all her strength to try to remember, hoping she could know exactly what had happened a little faster, but when she exerted too much effort trying to remember, she would get a headache, but she was also scared people would say she was pretending. As a result, every time she got a headache, she would endure it. Fortunately, this headache problem didn’t happen too often, and also wasn’t too hard to bear.

“This matter, leave it to me to investigate. Just feel at ease and go with Yu Mama.” After Long San said this, Feng Ning nodded her head, went back to her room, fetched her things, and prepare to set off with Yu Mama. Before she left, she handed Long San a letter, telling him not to look, and only said to wait until she came back, and then return the letter to her. Long San failed to understand the reason why, but nevertheless nodded his head and agreed.

Yu Mama was calling people to hurry, Long San sent Feng Ning to the gate. Surely enough, the carriage was already parked over there waiting, maids were carrying while Yu Mama was on one side waiting.

Long San told Feng Ning, once she was there, she should do as she was told, must not be unruly and get angry, that place was an important Buddhist location, and Yu Mama was very serious. Feng Ning fiercely nodded her head. Long San said, Yu Mama is already very old, don’t be naughty and cause trouble while over there and cause her to worry and get angry. Feng Ning responded okay again.

And then Feng Ning asked: “Then after three days, will you come pick me up?”

Long San blanked, he subconsciously resisted, and rapidly said: “I’m very busy, you and Yu Mama will come back together.” These last two days, he was overly close to her, this really should not be.

Feng Ning was somewhat disappointed, and gloomily replied a single “Oh.” And then turned around and climbed into the carriage with Yu Mama. Long San was about to turn and return to the house, when he suddenly saw Feng Ning open the carriage door and rush down again.

“Long San, Long San, could you help me tell Yu Mama, that the few days that I’m in the temple, I want to sleep with her in the same room.”  Indeed, she was still concerned about the nightmares. Long San helplessly could only go forward and tell Yu Mama. Yu Mama was astonished, looked at Long San, and then looked at Feng Ning, ultimately still agreeing.

Feng Ning once more mounted the carriage, Long San stood at the door watching, waiting for them to be on their way. In the end, the coachman had just raised the whip, when Feng Ning pushed open the doors once again, and came down.

“Long San, Long San, if the temple’s food can’t satiate my hunger, what do I do? Can you help me tell them, to have the monks give me some more food.”

Long San sighed, and called: “Feng Ning.”

“Mm.” Feng Ning answered, her expression very innocent; she really wasn’t trying to cause trouble.

“It’s only three days, you won’t go hungry, and will also be able to sleep well, it’s only trying some methods, doing some exorcism, just a ritual, that’s all. That temple also doesn’t have any rivers surrounding it, and there are also bodyguards going with you, you’re not in the least bit of danger. You must not make any more disturbances, obediently go with Yu Mama.”

“Oh.” The disappointment in Feng Ning’s voice was very obvious. She silently walked towards the chariot, taking a few steps, and turned around again: “Long San, if I’m exorcised away, don’t blame me, I didn’t go willingly.”

“Mm, I won’t blame you.” Long San answered, mentally thinking, it’s not like you’re a demon, how would you be exorcised away.

Feng Ning pursed her lips, turned around preparing to walk towards the carriage. Before even lifting her foot, she turned around again:“Long San, it’s only three days that’s all, can’t you come with us?”

“Feng Ning……” Long San’s dragged the sound, warning her.

Feng Ning rapidly turned around, and rushed towards the chariot: “I got it, I got it!” She jumped onto the carriage, and waved goodbye very hard to Long San. This time the carriage finally started moving without a hitch, speeding up, and gradually disappearing before Long San’s eyes.

Long San entered the residence, thought for a bit, then went to Feng Ning’s room. The maid who was left behind to take care of things seeing him come, was very surprised. Long San waved his hand and said it’s nothing, sending her away.

He stretched out his hand and picked up that jewelry box, felt around it, opened that interval layer, and discovered that this time, there was unexpectedly a paper filled with words hidden inside, resembling a letter.

Long San’s heart stirred, could it be another mysterious person who did it, in order to pass information to Feng Ning? He opened the letter, took one look, and was unexpectedly shocked. This was actually a letter Feng Ning wrote to Feng Ning.

As it turns out, she was actually really afraid, afraid that after this trip to get exorcised, she didn’t know what would happen, after all, this time, her experience was unimaginable. She feared, going this time, she would lose this present her. So she wrote a letter of reminder.

The letter said, if she couldn’t remember what happened during this period of time, but still remembered that this box has a hidden interval layer, then she definitely returned to being the past Feng Ning. She hoped that the past Feng Ning would listen well to the words of the present Feng Ning.

She said she didn’t know what had happened in the past, but staying at the Long Residence during this period of time, she can confirm that the Long residents were all good people, she hoped the past Feng Ning, no matter what she did, or planned to do, would have a clear conscience, and not make any mistakes.

She said, she felt that she herself shouldn’t have been a bad woman, so she believed that no matter what the past Feng Ning did, she must have had some reason, some difficulties. She urged herself, if she really had difficulties, then it would be better if after she takes care of relationship with all parties, she sincerely had a talk with the Long Family, because she believed it would definitely be possible to properly talk things over and resolve everything.

She even wrote down, that Long San treated her very well, it was only because she could completely rely on him, that she could find a sense of security and a bit of happiness in this unfamiliar place where she was loathed. She said, although Long Er is very petty, but he isn’t a malicious person. Yu Mama is strict, but also isn’t really horribly mean. There was also that untalkative and not often seen steward Tie, actually, he is also an honest and considerate person. She said after she lost her memory, she was instead able to look at these matters from another perspective, hoping her past self would could also let go of her prejudices, and properly assess and handle matters.

The letter even wrote, she had already agreed to divorce Long San, and give him freedom, hoping her past self wouldn’t rescind her own promise, and at the appropriate time, talk it over with her family, and clearly settle it with the Long Family.

At the end of the letter, she wrote: if there is sincere treatment, there must be some in return. Since you are me, you will definitely know my intentions, you musn’t make mistakes, if you treat people well, people will treat you well.

And at the very bottom was a small line: to prove the legitimacy of this letter, I will leave my fingerprint here. If you doubt the source of this letter, please press your fingerprint and compare the two, and then you will know the truth. To the side of this line of words, there really was a distinct fingerprint.

After Long San finished reading this letter, he really didn’t know what this feeling in his heart was. This Feng Ning; this seemingly carefree, simple-minded, trouble making, Feng Ning who only cares to eat, was actually this scrupulous.

He sat in her room for a long time, thinking, then also taking out the letter she handed to him, deciding to open and secretly take a look. This letter’s content was more or less the same as the one of the letter in the box, only in the beginning she explained that she was worried that she would forget the things that happened during this period of time, so she wrote a letter to Long San to pass on to her.

Long San suddenly felt like he knew what Feng Ning would do. He set about rummaging through Feng Ning’s room. In her closet, in her chest, as well as beneath her bedding; sure enough, all hid a letter with the exact same content.

“Don’t blame me, I didn’t go willingly.” Long San thought of Feng Ning’s words, his heart somewhat feeling tenderness towards her.

As he returned the letters back to their original places, he thought, thankfully this person was Feng Ning, if it was someone else, in this sort of situation, he feared if it wasn’t weeping to death, she would have bothered the surrounding people to death. But Feng Ning, in his mind what he remembered the most was actually her arrogant, proud, and mischievous laughter.

Long San’s heart started to feel jittery, this woman wouldn’t really go one trip to the temple, and return as the previous her right? He unexpectedly didn’t want her to return to her old self.

Long San paced back and forth, no longer calm, one moment thinking, Yu Mama handles matters well, she wouldn’t let Feng Ning meet with any accidents, another moment thinking, it’s still not clear who the assassin is, could this trip have leaked some news and put her in danger? And another moment thinking, if Feng Ning really returns to her former self, how should he treat her? He even thought, maybe he should simply just go to the temple and accompany her?

In the end, he felt that Feng Ning was indeed an expert in blindly disturbing people, she’s not even here, but she can still make him extremely nervous. He still had a lot of important matters to attend to, he definitely couldn’t stay disorderly and with no propriety.

Ba Ai Mou Qin by Xin Xin Xiang Rong Chapter 13 Part 2

Ji Qing actually didn’t want to ignore those two people, but she had other concerns, her daughter, she bent down to look closer at her, she was sleeping, but her face showed that she had been crying and her face looked pained, she would cough a few times in her sleep. Ji Qing touched her daughter’s forehead, it was somewhat hot, but there were evident signs that she had gotten better, she gently stroke the little girl’s hair, then Zi Qin suddenly pulled her up and lead her out to the corridor.

At the corridor Zi Qin nervously said,” Ji Qing, you can get angry at me, it’s my fault, if I didn’t take Xue out to the amusement park….”

Ji Qing gently held her shoulder and shook her head, “Xue was born premature, her body is weak, besides the doctor also repeatedly said that going out will be good for her, and can increase her immune system, this seems to be the flu season, it’s difficult for adults to resist, let alone Xiao Xue.” (ES: As a mother of 2 premature born, I can’t agree that premature babies are weak, it all depends on the care the parents give. Sorry Ji Qing, I must look at you with judging eyes in this case)

The guilt on Zi Qing’s face slowly began to disappear, “The doctor said that at the best hospital, there are no beds available, and they can only let her stay in the emergency room. A friend of mine who works as a nurse there said that there is a patient that will be discharged tomorrow, so they can let Xue have that bed.”

Ji Qing nodded, “I think it’s better for you to go there, don’t wait till tomorrow, there will be a risk that someone will take that vacancy. please deal with this, so we will have a better chance at it.”

Hearing this Zi Qin nodded, she promised to call Ji Qing of any updates, then left. Ji Qing turned around and walked back to the infusion room in a daze.

Feng Jin Cheng sat on the small chair by the bed, his tall posture made him look kind of awkward, he sat with his slightly bent, his finger caressing Xiao Xue’s eyebrow slightly. His finger trembling as if fearing that he would use too much strength and cause harm to her. Seeing his shaking fingertips, Ji Qing’s heart inexplicably felt sour, maybe she had been too arbitrary to him, maybe this man didn’t hate kids after all. (ES: Double face palm)

Jin Cheng’s heart was shaken, in his 30 years of life, he never had any hands on experience with babies, yet here lying on this bed was a little girl that was his daughter. She looked so weak, her pale little hand tied to the line, with a needle buried in her thin blood vessel. He felt pained looking at her.

Jin Cheng moved his head closer to take a better look at her, those eyebrows, those eyes, they were an exact copy of his. The more he looked at her, the more beautiful she was to him. He unconsciously reached out and caressed her face.

Feeling a shadow in front of him, without taking his eyes away from her face, he asked shortly: “What? What did the doctor say? ”。

A reasonable question with no intention to provoke Ji Qing, she replied in a low voice, “The doctor said that in the best hospital, there are no more beds left. Zi Qin has a friend that will help to get an empty bed for tomorrow.”

Jin Cheng finally looked up at her and gently touched the child’s forehead then stood up. Using his customary tone of command and said: “Stay  here, I need to go out for a while, I’ll be back … …”.

Ji Qing looked on as his tall figure strode out of the infusion room until his shadow disappeared to the corner of the corridor, she suddenly felt overwhelmed, she secretly smiled wryly, she is such a weak and hopeless woman, just for a moment, she also wants to rely on the man … ….

Ji Cheng came back followed by a kind and  mature female doctor in her forties who greeted Ji Qing with a smile, she walked over to talk the nurses as Jin Cheng gently picked up the child, then turned to Ji Qing and said,”Don’t just sit there, hurry up!” (ES: What a cold guy)

Ji Qing suddenly snapped out of her daze, she took the infusion bottle and held it up, she followed Jin Cheng at a steady pace, out of the infusion room and into the VIP ward, where Xiao Xue will have the best care from the doctors and the best medicines available to her. Suddenly it hit Ji QIng, maybe what Jin Cheng said was right, Xiao Xue will be better off living with him than with her mother, she can at least get the best medical care….(ES: oh-oh…..what is going through your mind now?)

Ba Ai Mou Qin by Xin Xin Xiang Rong Chapter 13 Part 1

“What do you want? ” There was a moment of silence, Ji Qing murmured a few words under her breathe as if she wasn’t willing to say anything else in front of him. this made Jin Cheng’s heart fall into further distress, and his distress soon turned to anger. (ES: I feel you brother!)

Jin Cheng felt anger mixed with melancholy, ever since they were reunited again, this woman never showed him any signs of being happy, instead she kept insisting on talking about divorce, which to him appears to be a bit ridiculous.

Jin Cheng looked at her with a gloomy expression,”Ji Qing, i can ask ou the same thing, what do you want? I have told you clearly, that if you want a divorce, I can give it to you, but the child with the surname Feng, must live with me.”

Ji Qing looked straight up at him,”You know that she needs me, we cannot be separated, don’t be cruel…”

“Cruel?” Jin cheng laughed, “Ji Qing, you know that I Feng Jin Cheng have never been a kind man.  You should have known better than to have my baby in secret. You have  just gone too far.”

Ji Qing’s face turned pale, this man is closing all her options and not giving her any choice.

Ji Qing lowered her head for a moment, then stammered,”I don’t want to…., please don’t talk about separating me from Xiao Xue”

Jin Cheng arched his eyebrow,”It’s simple, Ji qing, you know that I’m a busy man, at work and socializing, I don’t have the energy, the time to go and find another woman and marry her as my wife. I have always considered you a good wife. Now if you still want to continue to be a good mother, there is just one way, understand?”

Ji Qing noded, honestly, she couldn’t understand Jin Cheng, there are so many women out there more confident and well suited to be his partner, what’s the point in settling for a boring stay at home wife like her? He doesn’t like much less love her, she sometimes feel that he might even be sick of her. Perhaps just like last night’s dinner she is tasteless but a waste to discard. But to use Xiao Xue to blackmail her.

Suddenly the thought came to Ji Qing’s mind, maybe it’s his pride, as she was the one who filed for divorce, it hurt his self esteem. For a perfectionist like Feng Jin Cheng, a flawed marriage will stick out like a sore thumb.

Jin Cheng took a sip of the coffee in his hand, even though it is an exquisite coffee, but it still leaves a bitter after taste in his mouth. He has been tasting this for the last two years.

Putting down the cup, Jin Cheng’s eye accidently fell on Ji Qing, through the window he can see the sun gradually setting, only leaving a dim ray of light that entered the window, framing her silhouette, enchanting him.

She slowly raised her head, her delicate facial feature in the dimming light, such a bewitching beauty. Jin Cheng suddenly felt the urge to hide her, not wanting to let another man see her. Though he knew it was an unreasonable thought, but it just kept lingering in his mind.

Before Ji Qing can say anything, Ji Qing’s cellphone rang, Ji Qing peered at the screen of her phone, then hastily answered the call, it was Zi Qin, her voice sounded worried,”Ji Qing, Xue has a fever, 38 degrees. Her forehead is burning up, and she’s coughing badly. I’m taking her to the children’s hospital, please go there directly.”

Ji Qing jumped up in panic, she stood up holding her bag, trying to run outside but Jin Cheng grabbed her wrist, Ji Qing tried to break free saying “Jin Cheng, please let me go, Xue is sick, I have to go to the hospital, we can talk talk later…”

Jin Cheng, let go of her wrist and held her shoulders and lifted her face, in a serious tone as if trying to warn her, he said, “Ji Qing, Xue is my daughter, I thought I made that clear, now tell me which hospital, let’s go there together!”

Ji Qing was in no mood to argue with him, she told him the name of the hospital, then Jin Cheng dragged her out and lead her to the car.

When they arrived at the hospital, they headed to the children’s infusion room, where Xiao Xue was lying on a small bed and the IV liquid was hanging on it’s side. Next to her was Zi Qin, seeing Ji Qing arriving, she stood up and said,”The doctors said it is acute pneumonia, it’s my fault, I shouldn’t have taken her out to the amusement park.”

“You took her to an amusement park on such a cold day?” Jin Cheng shoute, Ji Qing stood there saying nothing.

Zi Qin snapped back at him,”She needed to do outdoor activities, yo have just been her father for a few hours, what do yol u know?”  (ES: Ji Qing learn!)

“I don’t know much, but I do know that my daughter is lying there sick, because of your so call outdoor activity!”
