TWQQF ch 119 - Lots of Drama; Beautiful Scholar (12)

Zhu Bo laughed happily. At the same time, he has a lot of hope. As to what he was hoping for, only he’d know.

Willow Village!

Cheng Xiao Xiao had no idea that troubles were going to come one wave after another. She just finished surveilling the hills and was about to head home before a village woman blocked her way. The village woman was Qui Hua da niang, mother of Liu Tianshan.

“Oh, Xiao Xiao, Xiao Xiao, so you are here!” Qui Hua da niang, in a floral outfit, had a big smile on her as thought she had just saw her own daughter.

“Qui Hua da niang, were you looking for me?” Xiao Xiao was a little surprised.

Qui Hua da niang smiled and nodded. She grabbed Cheng Xiao Xiao and started walking, “I say, Xiao Xiao, you are such a polite kid all the time. I have been wanting to invite you over to my house for a while now, but it was so difficult. You must come over to my place today. Da niang will cook you something nice in a bit!”

“Qui Hua da niang, I am not hungry!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao struggled for a bit and was able to break free of her “monster grip” but she couldn’t just turn around and walk away so she followed her as she asked, “Qui Hua da niang, did you need some help from me?”

“Nothing, of course not. Even if do I wouldn’t ask for help from a maiden!” Qui Hua da niang still looking very happy, “You follow da niang. Just come for a visit at my place!”

“Well, Qui Hua da niang, why don’t I go visit you on a different day, okay?” Cheng Xiao Xiao hadn’t been planning on visiting anybody’s house today, so she tried to turn her down subtly.

“Now is good. It has to be right now. Oh, just follow da niang!”


Having no idea what was going on, Xiao Xiao had no choice but to follow her and find out. After making a few turns, they were at the house of Liu Tianshan – a simple straw hut that wind just breeze right through in all directions. It was a bit on the old side, but there were a few quarters and didn’t look too bad.

“C’mon, Xiao Xiao, c’mon in!” invited Qui Hua da niang passionately.

Cheng Xiao Xiao had  no choice but to follow her into Liu Tianshan’s house. Soon as she stepped into the house she saw a man in an azure outfit, looking at her in a impetuous manner.

Before Cheng Xiao Xiao even asked anything, Qiu Hua da niang grabbed her hand and started walking her toward the man as she continue to smiled, “Xiao Xiao, this is Tianshan’s cousin, son of my oldest brother, my nephew. His name is Zhang Jinlai!”1

Zhang Jinlai? Why not just Jin Fulai, that would be even better?2

Grumbled Cheng Xiao Xiao in her mind while she stood her ground. Qui Hui da niang could drag her any closer; shocked, she asked, “Xiao Xiao, what’s the matter? Come and sit with us!”

“No, it’s alright!” Cheng Xiao Xiao shook her head. Even though she hadn’t said anything, but seeing this, as a moderner, she had a pretty good idea what was going on.3 She should just buy a piece of tofu and hit her head against it.4

“Qui Hua da niang, I have some things that I need to go take care of, so I have to take off. You have any other problems, you can go look for Tianshan shi xiong tomorrow. He will take care of them for you!”

Soon as she finished she started heading out without looking back at all. Matchmaking? She must be joking!

“Xiao Xiao, Xiao Xiao! Oh, don’t be such a child. Maybe you want to take a look first…” Qui Hua da niang followed her out and shouting on the way.

“No need! I need to take care of something at home! Qui Hua na niang, Xiao Xiao will come visit you on a different day!”

Looking at Cheng Xiao Xiao who was walking away faster and faster, Qui Hua da niang finally stopped in her way. Full of disappointment, she said, “Aiya, that child. Our Jinlai is such a good kid, what didn’t she like about him?”

After getting home, Cheng Xiao Xiao finally let out a big sigh and forget about everything that had just happened.

1.  Jin – literal meaning is “gold”, Lai is “come”.
2.   Fu – literal meaning is “luck" 
3.  Do you really need to be a moderner to figure this one out?
4. It’s just a Chinese saying. The saying is kinda funny so I decided to leave it as direct translation.  



  1. Hot commodity!


  2. She should just say she likes women and get rid of them. Please no romance.

  3. I just thought of a big flaw in this story. it does not concern this chapter specifically but writing it here, avoids the spoil.
    The MC family wants to marry her at any cost, but how will they get by without her?
    On the other hand, they want to force him to marry, but they marry each other out of love, should not he easily agree to leave him his life?

    1. The guy can marry into the family? LOL. But, that's the traditional Chinese way of thinking -- getting married (to a good family) IS the be all end all for a female. So that's reasonable. And I don't see why she'd stop taking care of her family just because she was married...
