Description
Song Liang Zhuo is a young and poor county magistrate. Qian Xiao Qi’s father is a rich man. Qian Xiao Qi falls in love with Song Liang Zhuo the moment she sees him. Each day she waits outside the court’s gates to see him, hoping he will glance her way once. She patiently waits for him to notice her for two years, but he ignores her. She realises it is futile to wait for someone who does not know she exists and she gives up pursuing Song Liang Zhuo.

Song Liang Zhuo despises the shallow young girls who pursue him, but his heart softens seeing Qian Xiao Qi waiting for him to look at her for two years. He relents and he asks for her father’s permission to marry her.

Qian Xiao Qi marries Song Liang Zhuo, but she loses her memory. Qian Xiao Qi’s maid tells her how much Qian Xiao Qi loves Song Liang Zhuo. Qian Xiao Qi does not remember why her old self loves someone who despises her. She asks Song Liang Zhuo to divorce her. But he tells her that her father will not give her wedding dowry to him to help poor villagers living in provinces which are affected by floods… until her father is holding a grandchild so he refuses to divorce her. She promises him she will find a way to get her father to give him the wedding dowry without her being pregnant, and she will find him a new wife if he promises to divorce her.

Song Liang Zhuo slowly falls in love with his wife. But he is too slow, because his wife secretly regains her memories… she remembers her pathetic old self for loving the heartless Song Liang Zhuo and she makes secret plans to run away.

      You can always learn! Especially if you have a particular series you’re interested in reading. You might start off slow but with practice you’ll be able to pick it up.

    Hello! Just curious, is the novel still being translated or is it dropped? I hope it hasn’t been dropped as I find the story and plot directions pretty interesting. I’m thankful for both translators and editors of this novel for sharing this wonderful story with us! /😘/~💛

    • Chiyomira says:

      Still translating. Sorry, been busy w/ life lately. You can check where I’m stuck at by looking at the procrastination progress widget on my site.

      • soysuva says:

        Yep, checked it out. Thanks! I really like XQ, but I’m still holding a grudge on the male lead. Until he shows improvements and accepts that he did cause her to lose her memories from hitting her and not try to put the blame on her like it was her fault, I’ll then forgive him. Sorry for my rant on the male lead and I hope this doesn’t discourage you from translating as I do find the story pretty interesting so far. Thanks for translating again by the way! 😘

    Hi Chiyomira,
    First, thank you for translating this.
    Second, any tips for learning Chinese to read web novels?
    Thank you. 🙂

      You’re welcome. 🙂
      Well, first it’d be helpful to have some basic foundation for Chinese vocabulary. I can’t really recommend any site because I’m fluent in conversational Chinese and just skipped straight to reading. But I recommend you pick a site that looks like it has a lot of lessons in grammar as well as in words, then stick with it until you go through all it has to offer.

      Once you have that, it helps to start off with watching some Chinese dramas with Chinese subs. Then you can start reading web novels online with a dictionary. There’s really helpful google chrome chinese dictionaries now. This is the one I use: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/zhongwen-chinese-english/kkmlkkjojmombglmlpbpapmhcaljjkde
      Though it’s really good, there’s a lot of Chinese sayings and combinations it doesn’t include, so sometimes you might want to copy the text and paste it into google and click a link like ‘baidu’ or ‘baike’ that will explain the Chinese saying in Chinese. Otherwise phone apps are good, I haven’t really found one I’m satisfied with yet but the “Chinese English Dictionary” has a very clean layout and is pretty good.

      At the start you might have to go really slowly with a dictionary, but you’ll start recognizing the more common words and eventually will be able to get the gist of the story even if you don’t know all the words and you can do some reading even without searching every word up. Good luck and have fun~
