TWQQF ch 126 - Lots of Drama; Beautiful Scholar (19)

“Okay, young mistress, will do!”

“It looks like we will have fruits soon enough!”

In the morning shortly after daybreak, Cheng Xiao Xiao was kicked away by her sister’s little Lan Lan’s little feet. When she woke up, she could already hear noises from the outside. She knew those were her father’s disciples by name cultivating.”

Cheng Xiao Xiao carefully pulled the blanket over her sister before she got up, washed up, and went to help her mother one some household matters. As for breakfast and what not, there were others to take care of those. They didn’t need to worry about them anymore. After a busy morning and everybody had breakfast and back to work. Innkeeper Zhu was teaching the servants and maids the proper way to greet guests.

Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t leave the house but casually picked up some notes to read. Her mother Mrs. Cheng walked in from the outside and quietly handed her a letter to read.

“Mom, who’s the letter for?” Cheng Xiao Xiao was surprised.

Mrs. Cheng seemed a bit uneasy and said, “Xiao Xiao, you read first, then we will talk about it!”

Cheng Xiao Xiao didn’t say much more and started reading the letter. This was a letter for her mother. After she had finished reading it, her look was stone-cold. She handed the letter back to her mother and didn’t say a word.

“Xiao Xiao, do you want to meet her?” Mrs. Cheng studied her daughter’s face cautiously.          

Cheng Xiao Xiao felt a slight headache. Of course she knew who her mother was referring to as “her”. She couldn’t help but to ask, “Mom, you want to meet her?”

“Xiao Xiao, I think we should. No matter what, you’ve had a marriage arrangement when you were kids, now that your Gu da niang send a letter to point that out. It’d be rude of us to just ignore her!” Mrs. Cheng expressed her thoughts on the matter.

Ever since they have opened up the pathways to Willow Village, there had been more and more strangers coming to Willow. Or, to be more precise, more and more individuals sending letters to the Cheng’s. There were never one relative visited previously, now there’s a line of people outside delivering letters claiming that they were their father’s brother, father’s sister, mother’s sister, husband of a cousin. Just an endless string of relatives.

Most of them they could just ignore. Even Mrs. Cheng wouldn’t pay attention to those who tried to claim they were however remotely related. Except for the Gu’s of the city of Yin. She couldn’t not accept their letter. And as soon as she has finished reading it, she went looking for her daughter to discuss.

“Mom, I am going to be brutally honest with you. It’s best that we don’t meet them. Once we’ve met, you will never be able to get rid of them!”

“But why would we want to get rid of them? Xiao Xiao, she is going to be your mother-in-law…”

“Wait, mom! Stop!” Cheng Xiao Xiao quickly interrupted her mother and said in her most serious tone, “Mom, I am not in a hurry. I don’t care what kind of family the Gu’s are. I won’t be going. I hope you’d understand?”

“Why? Xiao Xiao, I have met Junxian. He’s not a bad looking kid, he should be a goo….”

As she was explaining, Mrs. Cheng saw the indifferently way that her daughter was looking at her and stopped but she added softly, “Your dad won’t agree to ending this betrothal either.”

“We’ll talk about it later!”

“You are not young any more!”

“Mom….” Cheng Xiao Xiao felt helpless facing her mother, finally she had to remind her, “Mom, even you have once gave up everything for your own happiness to be with the one that you love. So why wouldn’t you give me that chance too? Was the parents’ orders or the matchmakers’ words really that important?”

“Xiao Xiao, you, you are right!”

Mrs. Cheng paused for a second and nodded. She took a look a the letter in her hand and said, “Xiao Xiao, if that’s the case, we will just ignore this!” as she put away the letter in her hand!

  3. You know tradition is a really hard thing to leave behind and I’m sure the mom thought that Xiao Xiao’s and hers marriages are different or separate things and never really related the two until Xiao Xiao said it. Just like an “oh sh*t it didn’t matter as much as I thought it did.”

    2. Not true at all. My family has a bunch of religions idiots with traditions they've had for generations. The stupid ones you deal with by saying "that fvcking stupid. no". It doesnt get easier than abandoning stupidity. Its much harder to continue it.

    With what kind of brain is this mother thinking? The marriage was completly ignored by the fiancรฉe's family before, but now they are appearing to talk about it.
    Mother, smell the roses please. Can't you notice the fishy smell. ����
