Chapter 12: Qian Xiao Qi, Don’t Go Past the Walls
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo softly shook his head, reached out to straighten Xiao Qi’s tilted head, then turned around to speak to Chen Zi Gong with a smile: “May I ask what gongzi is here for?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi saw the faint smile of Xong Liang Zhuo’s face and her stomach flopped. Xiao Qi hurriedly covered her face with her hand while silently cursing the formidable might of a pretty boy’s face.

Chen Zi Gong watched Song Liang Zhuo’s clear show of ownership and shook his head while the corner of his mouth hooked. Coughing lightly in order to attract Qian Xiao Qi’s gaze which was fixed on Song Liang Zhuo’s face, he spoke with a faint   smile: “Then this Chen will leave now.    Let’s continue on another day, Xiao Qi.”

Qian Xiao Qi saw him turn around to leave and hurriedly stepped forward to chase after him, but was pulled back with one yank by Song Liang Zhuo. Xiao Qi became mad, and angrily said: “He took my thing!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo, hearing this, lightly lifted his eyebrow. He handed the coarse cloth bag in his hand to Xiao Qi and took two steps forward, calling out: “Chen gongzi, wait a moment!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Zi Gong turned around and Song Liang Zhuo quickly walked over, sweeping a glance over the clay red horse toy in his hand, asked: “Chen gongzi won’t yield it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Zi Gong shook his head with a smile: “Won’t yield!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Haha.  Then Chen gongzi should pay for it before leaving.” Song Liang Zhuo carelessly glanced again at the clay toy in his hand: “My wife is stubborn and mischievous and she never casually gifts people things. It’s best to keep things clear.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Chen Zi Gong faintly knitted his brow, his line of sight swept towards Xiao Qi who didn’t give off the slightest impression of being married, and shook his head, feeling it was rather a pity as he felt for a piece of silver and threw it towards the vendor booth Uncle’s chest.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Qian Xiao Qi, seeing Chen Zi Gong throwing silver, strode over towards him with large furious steps, but before she got close, she was blocked by Song Liang Zhuo’s arm and held back.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“He, he took my thing.” Qian Xiao Qi complained unhappily.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“He paid money.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“But I was the one who fancied it first!” Qian Xiao Qi felt very wronged and, turning around, she said to the Uncle: “Uncle, wasn’t I the one who fancied it first?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The vendor booth Uncle said with a laugh: “It was magistrate’s wife who took a fancy to it first.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Qian Xiao Qi nodded repeatedly and glared at Song Liang Zhuo, fuming. With her cheeks puffed into bulges she looked extremely adorable. Song Liang Zhuo gave a smile as he said: “Xiao Qi just pick a different one.” Song Liang Zhuo picked up an identical black horse and passed it over: “Isn’t this one the same? Why must you have that one?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Qian Xiao Qi widened her eyes as she looked towards Song Liang Zhuo, her eyes filled with grievances and hurt, then she switched, fiercely speaking towards the vendor booth Uncle: “Who is the magistrate’s wife? I am Qian Xiao Qi, the third miss of the Qian clan! To hell with the magistrate’s wife!” After she finished speaking she flung the coarse cloth bag to Song Liang Zhuo and ran off, enraged.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wen Ruo Shui saw Qian Xiao Qi run off, then turned back to look at the clay figure with her appearance in the vendor booth Uncle’s hand, a bit reluctant to leave, and said in a soft voice: “Zhuo gege, how about we wait for this Uncle to finish making this one before going together?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo retracted his gaze from Qian Xiao Qi’s back and gave a light nod. Lu Liu who was standing at the side waiting for Song Liang Zhou to give chase gave Wen Ruo Shui a glare before hurriedly chasing after Xiao Qi.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhou stood looking in front of the vendor booth for a while before asking: “You don’t have anymore of that kind of red horse from just now?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I don’t, this batch only fired about ten or twenty, there’s only one of every type.” The vendor booth Uncle continued to shape the clay figure as he lifted his head to ask: “Official daren also took a fancy to that red one?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo gave a smile, then said: “Yes, may I ask when will be the next time you fire some?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Haha, isn’t this up to me? If daren likes, one of these days I can just add an additional kiln.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo’s gaze swept towards that clay figure with its hands on its hip and its chin arrogantly raised and couldn’t help but curl the corner of his mouth. He asked: “Can this type of clay figure also be fired?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“It can. With an additional layer of clay when it’s fired it’ll look even more smooth than clay goods.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Then fire it. You can set a time and I’ll come pick it up.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Official daren is too polite, one of these days I’ll send it to your residence for you.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Then send it to the government office.” Song Liang Zhuo fished out some pieces of silver. Seeing   that the vendor booth Uncle’s hands were covered with clay, he proceeded to set it down on the booth: “This is the down payment, when the time comes you can set the price.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The vendor booth Uncle knew that this young official never takes other people’s things for free so he didn’t try to be polite and just nodded: “This will be fired in just a few days.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wen Ruo Shui looked at the clay figure with Xiao Qi’s appearance and said with a pout: “Then I want to fire mine too, Uncle must make it even prettier.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Haha, ok!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo strode out, Wen Ruo Shui reminded the vendor booth Uncle again before hurriedly following. Seeing his hand was still holding on to a coarse cloth bag, and it even faintly carried the smell of blood she asked with a frown: “What is Zhuo gege holding?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Chicken bits.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What’s it for?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“To eat.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wen Ruo Shui’s eyes sparkled: “Is it tasty?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“For Ha Pi to eat.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wen Ruo Shui pouted and ran to the other side to hold Song Liang Zhuo’s empty hand, Song Liang Zhuo didn’t shake her off either, he just spoke warmly: “I’ve already sent a letter to Uncle Wen, presumably in a few days someone will come.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wen Ruo Shui unhappily hung her head: “Zhuo gege, can’t you let me play here forever?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“An unmarried young lady……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Then Zhuo gege should go back with me. Xiao Qi said before that she’ll yield Zhuo gege to me.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo frowned: “Ruo Shui, how could such a big thing like marriage be treated as a game? Not to mention that I’ve already married Xiao Qi, but even if I hadn’t married, our relationship  is still only that of siblings.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo pulled away his hand and gave Ruo Shui’s head a pat as he said in a warm tone: “Brother Yu Ming Xuan has already said that he’ll come to pick you up in a few days.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Zhuo gege!” The rims of Ruo Shui’s eyes turned red: “Is Zhuo gege still longing for that Zi Xiao?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The faint smile of Song Liang Zhuo’s face dispersed, his face turned expressionless. Wen Ruo Shui pursed her lips and timidly continued: “She has already entered the palace for two years, she might have even given birth to a little prince by now.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“It has nothing to do with her.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Then why doesn’t Zhuo gege want me?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo turned around to look at Wen Ruo Shui’s slightly upturned face, suddenly smiled and said: “Ruo Shui, I heard Brother Ming Xuan say that Brother Heng Zhi treats Ruo Shui rather well? Brother Heng Zhi’s character isn’t bad!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wen Ruo Shui’s face darkened and said with a pout: “Can a person who only knows how to irritate you all day be counted as having a good character? That guy really needs a spanking!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo smiled and shook his head.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi ran for half a block, the anger in her heart didn’t increase or decrease. At the mouth of the street she suddenly saw that man who had snatched her little red horse just now. The man probably also saw her, his line of sight paused for a moment, but he acted as if he didn’t see her and turned to leave.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Qian Xiao Qi put her hands on her hips as she gasped for breath. She squinted her eyes and glared at Chen Zi Gong’s back for a good while, originally planning to furiously charge over to demand it back but thought better of it. She gave a sneer and when Chen Zi Gong turned around to look a second time she dodged into a different alley taking a detour to return to Song fu.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Pretty much all the jade on the jade artifact booth has already been felt once by Chen Zi Gong but Qian Xiao Qi still hasn’t arrived  to quarrel with him. Chen Zi Gong turned around to look again, but where was there still a trace of her! Chen Zi Gong shook his head, rather regretful. With a glance he saw Song Liang Zhuo and Wen Ruo Shui walking this way together and the corner of his mouth hooked almost imperceptibly, then he turned back around and entered the crowd.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi rushed back to the Song fu, first going to her room to change into women’s clothes, then hurriedly rushed to the kitchen to steal something tasty for Ha Pi to eat. The last few days Song Liang Zhuo was not home during noon so she could feed Ha Pi however she wanted but this time it definitely wasn’t the case.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi simply got some chicken bones that weren’t scraped clean yet from Auntie Feng and ran back to the room again to hide them below the bed, preparing to give them to Ha Pi to gnaw on at night.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi had just finished preparing when Lu Liu returned, panting and out of breath. She supported her waist and gasped for half the day before saying with a bitter face: “Miss, why did you disappear halfway? You made Lu Liu look everywhere!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi poured a cup of tea and passed it over to Lu Liu, who lifted her head and drank, she then said angrily: “That Miss Ruo Shui is too much, to actually hang on to guye to buy clay toys. Guye as well, why did he stick his elbow out?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Uh-huh, that arm is oppressively long.” Xiao Qi humphed mystifyingly.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu said with a smile: “But Miss shouldn’t get angry either. Just now I saw that guye was right   behind and is almost back too. Guye didn’t accompany Miss Ruo Shui for long either.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi humphed again. Lu Liu saw that she still had her male style bun and stood up to release it. Just as she combed smooth that head of long hair, Song Liang Zhuo strode in. Seeing Xiao Qi, draped with loose hair, aiming her wide eyes in a glare towards him like that, he went into a daze for a moment.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Women for the most part are all beautiful, whether gentle and tender like Zi Xiao, naughty and clingy like Xiao Qi, adorable and simple like Ruo Shui, dignified and virtuous like Mother, each one had their own type of beauty that waited for a person who could understand to appreciate.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo hadn’t even finished sighing when Qian Xiao Qi already puffed up her cheeks and demanded: “What did you come in for? Can’t you see I’m currently changing?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Qian Xiao Qi spoke self-confidently and righteously, and even carried a faint trace of rage. Song Liang Zhuo gestured at Lu Liu, waiting for her to withdraw before picking up the comb himself, wanting to comb Xiao Qi’s hair for her, but Xiao Qi tilted her head and avoided it, frowning: “What are you doing?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo handed the comb to Xiao Qi, slowly walking to the side to sit down, and casually asked: “Why didn’t you bring manservants when you headed out?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
See! Just knew it would be like this! Xiao Qi pouted and didn’t reply.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“In the future you are the Magistrate’s wife, don’t run off like that again.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi’s mouth turned down as she said: “How many times have we already talked about this,  I don’t want to repeat it again. I’m Qian Xiao Qi, I’m not your wife, I have a divorce papers!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo slightly knitted his brows: “Then, at least during the time you’re at Song fu, act like a presentable Magistrate’s wife.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi blinked, then nodded: “Alright, I just won’t go out in the future. You better work faster, don’t stifle me alive in this courtyard.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo gave a smile: “If you’re bored just tell me,  I’ll take you out for a stroll.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi patted the pit of her stomach and said: “Forget it, you can just accompany your Ruo Shui meimei,  I’ll even be a bit more at ease by myself.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo looked straight at Qian Xiao Qi, seeing that her eyes didn’t contain any traces of jealousy or affection, dropped his eyes and said: “How many times have I already said this as well, I only think of Ruo Shui as a little sister.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi humphed: “Then you can go accompany your little sister, it’s all the same anyways.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo gave a soft sigh, lowering his head he saw Ha Pi who had at some unknown time trotted here on those four short legs.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Ha Pi whined as he circled Song Liang Zhuo’s legs and sniffed for quite a while, perhaps the chicken blood from the chicken bits had dropped onto his shoes because Ha Pi chased his legs and wouldn’t let go. Song Liang Zhuo lifted his foot to dodge twice, then Ha Pi suddenly with one chomp bit onto his pants and started climbing and sliding.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo didn’t know whether to laugh or cry slightly lifted his leg and extended it towards Xiao Qi: “Take him off.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi pouted and didn’t move, leisurely gathering up her hair. Seeing Song Liang Zhuo’ face turning more and more unsightly, her eyes shone with laughter: “You’re afraid of dogs? Haha, a big man being afraid of this kind of thing, aren’t you ashamed!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo’s complexion was slightly mocked, he grinded his teeth as he said: “I’m allergic to this thing.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Allergic?” Xiao Qi bent down and picked Ha Pi up: “You’re allergic to Ha Pi? Do you get a rash?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liang Zhuo nodded, begrudging words like gold spoke: “Itch.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi imagined Song Liang Zhuo being covered with rashes, thinking of his expression of frustration made her grin and laughed mischievously. Song Liang Zhuo knitted his brows, seeing Xiao Qi laugh heartlessly and her thoughts wandering off, he couldn’t resist lifting a finger give her forehead a flick.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Aiyah!” Xiao Qi rubbed her forehead and blurted out, mad: “Song Liang Zhuo, you’re too much, how could you hit me!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Really such a child! Song Liang Zhuo gave a sigh and stood up to go to the study.

    I hope the second male lead is not going so easily to give up

  5. Anonymous says:

    Thank you!

  6. Preyi says:

    I am a new reader. And I just enjoy this novel thiroughly. I almost check it every day in hope of new posts.

  7. sayume says:

    He dares call her naughty and clingy? Woah. She needs to teach this guy a humility lesson. I cant wait for hr to reject him even more clearly so he realizes he needs to orknfor her affection, and he must stop brushing offf casually all the offenses he does. She gets angry at him for good reason, not for someyhing trivial!

    So fa, i dislike him. He seems to hav been heartbroken in the past, but that is never an excuse to treat his wife like a consolation prze, for he clearly doesnt cherish her. He thinks he can buy her forgivrnesss with small actions! Hes supposed to apologize and address the issue of doubting her! And on top of that he feels no guilt letting another woman bully her and question her position as his wife! Just forcing her to go home doesn’t solve the real issue !

  8. sayume says:

    He dares to call her clingy? She made him write divorce papers, and she’s clingy? Woah. He needs to be taught some humility. I hope she rejects his advances and gives him pain so he knows better than to think he already has her unconditional love.

    He’s not a bad man, but he keeps brushing off the things that annoy her like they’re trivialities. Another woman harassing and questioning the wife’s position is NOT trivial! He MUST apologize for having hit her before; such violence is unacceptable no matter how angry you are! He MUST address the issue: he chose to trust Ruo Shi instead of his own wife. That is the real problem, but he thinks he can just buy her good mood and affection with clay toys and a few kind actions? He thinks the problem is solved by sending Ruo Shi back home without explaining his reasoning to Xiao Qi? No. That would be enough for very minor things, but not to compensate for that kind of insult. Just because he was heartbroken before doesn’t give him an excuse to treat her like that. He tries to treat her well in other ways, but that simply doesn’t compensate for it. He NEEDS to recognize he was wrong so he doesn’t do that again!

    I wonder when he’ll find out she lost her memory? He needs to realize how serious his actions were at once!

    Argh. I’m so indignant the female lead will fall for him again without him correcting himself properly before!
