Chapter 40: Love, You’ve Come ah
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
It was not actually Song Liangzhuo that was stuffy and bad. The second day, after hearing what Xiaoqi said, Lu Liu really went to find Lu Licheng.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo went to the county office and did some final arrangements, and also prepared to welcome the next county head magistrate. Xiao Qi obediently stayed home to pack.

Last night, after cutely acting spoiled for a while and clinging to Song Liangzhuo, Xiaoqi also thought it through. To be someone’s wife means you eventually had to go to that person’s home to live, just like the beautiful Mom at home. She too, also came to Tongxu and with one visit stayed several dozen years.

Xiaoqi thought, she’ll go home with Song Liangzhuo, then coax Mother-in-Law until she adored her just like her beautiful Mom. But the goal is so formidable!
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
When Lu Liu returned with a glowing-in-love expression, Xiaoqi was currently knitting her brows as she folded Song Liangzhuo’s winter clothes.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu first stood next to the door and patted her occasionally flushing cheeks before collecting up her emotions and walking in.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Miss.” Lu Liu’s voice was serious.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You’re back? What did Big Brother Lu say?” Xiaoqi happily ran to the table to pour Lu Liu a cup of tea.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Miss!” Lu Liu’s lips pressed together.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi knitted her brows: “What is it?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Wuu, Miss!” Lu Liu covered her face.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi’s two mild brows creased more and more tightly. Quickly turning her eyes, she smiled and said: “That’s great! Lu Liu’s coming with us to Ruzhou ah! Official Song said there’s a lot of fun things to play with there.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu covered her face and shook her head.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Lu Liu, don’t be sad. How about, how about we take a trip there together. Or, how about, does Big Brother Lu still want to be an Advisor? You can go to the entrance and bring deep-fried breadsticks too. En.” Xiaoqi nodded: “Gift him deep-fried breadsticks and soy milk.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu stuck out her tongue and with a gloomy face shook her head. Her brows distressfully knitted, then in a flash jumped up as she laughed ‘haha’: “I’m going to be the Advisor’s wife!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi blinked her eyes, a bit dazed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu took the tea Xiaoqi poured and drowned a mouthful. Tilting her chin up, she said: “Miss’s method is too dumb, there’s no way Lu Liu will use it.”
Xiaoqi finally got back from the bend(recovered from the shock) and glared at Lu Liu, also lifting her chin: “It’s not dumb! Official Song treats me really well!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Even though she said that, Xiaoqi was still a little envious.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi scrunched up her nose and sat to the side, after a while she crinkled her nose again. When she looked over, Lu Liu was still smiling towards the tea cupped in her hands, and Xiaoqi couldn’t help but pout: “Not fair.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu giggled ‘hehe’ but still didn’t speak.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Humph, not fair at all.” Xiaoqi glanced at Lu Liu then humphed again: “You know everything about Official Song and I, but won’t tell me about your affairs. It’s not fair at all. Humph, if I knew earlier I would have insisted on going over too.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu smoothed her lips into a smile and moved over to say in a low voice: “I ah, just said that and then, haha, and then I just decided to stay.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Big Brother Lu agreed?” Xiaoqi’s eyes widened.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu shook her head: “He didn’t say that either. But ah, haha, I definitely won’t let him get away. I have to stay here to keep an eye on him ah.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi suspiciously casted a side glance at Lu Liu, narrowing her eyes she said: “Humph, not telling the truth.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
When girls had worries or triumphs, they’d always want to find a person to share about it. Sure enough, Lu Liu still wasn’t about to hold herself back and she pulled her stool closer and mysteriously winked her eyes. Xiaoqi hurriedly shuffled over and tilted her ear, waiting for Lu Liu to tell those little secrets.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu bursted out laughing with a ‘puchi’. Xiaoqi was getting a bit annoyed now, even her face was slightly mad. Lu Liu waved her hand and said: “Miss, don’t get angry. I’ll talk, I won’t leave a single word out.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi flattened her mouth: “I’m not listening anymore. In a while I’ll go look for Big Brother Lu.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Don’t ah.” Lu Liu held back her laugh as a slight flush slowly crawl up her face.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Didn’t I go look for Advisor Lu? Today, he didn’t go to the government office. I boiled the medicine for him and waited for him to finish drinking it, then I said……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi looked at Lu Liu, very impressively keeping herself from pressing with questions.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu waited but Xiaoqi’s questions wouldn’t come, so she pursed her lips and continued: “I said, Advisor Lu, in a few days Miss will be going back to Ruzhou with guye.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Introduction! Xiaoqi pursed up her lips as she thought.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Advisor Lu just said, ‘I heard’. I was originally waiting for him to ask whether I’ll be going with you guys or not, but in the end he didn’t ask so I could only continue myself.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu rubbed her nose: “I said ah, ‘Advisor Lu, I’m Miss’s personal servant girl. Even though I’m a servant, I’m also not the usual kind of maid. I also know many things, when I was little I also studied with Miss. Even though I can’t speak with great erudition and scholarship, but I still do have some education.’ ”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu’s voice was very light, as if she lacked self-confidence, but also as if she was narrating casually.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu leaned forward and lifted her chin: “Miss, ‘great erudition and scholarship’, this pronoun was used nicely, wasn’t it? It was just right to prove that I’m a cultured person ah.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi nodded, this was also still padding.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu sat up straight and slightly knitted her brows as she continued: “I even know several things that Miss doesn’t know how to do. Sewing and darning is nothing difficult, I also know how to cook and wash clothes. I can also help Advisor Lu with some things.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi knitted her brows: “Why do you have to compare with me?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Of course I must compare with Miss!” Lu Liu looked towards Xiaoqi, twirling her eyes, she said: “By comparing with Miss it’s even more obvious how sensible Lu Liu is ah!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But that expression doesn’t seem to say that! Xiaoqi criticized silently.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu got up and turned her back towards Xiaoqi, seeming a bit dejected. However, it was only for a moment. Like a surge of wind she whirled and sat back down with a smile: “Advisor Lu asked me what I was saying all this for.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi nodded: “Yeah, what are you saying this for?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Ah, Miss doesn’t get it, do you? This is a hook(introduction) ah. Lu Liu was originally trying to hook Advisor Lu into taking the initiative to speak, only if he spoke would Lu Liu be able to seem reserved ah.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi curled her lips.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu’s eyes carried a bit of disappointment. Lowering her eyes, she wryly curled her lips and said: “So Lu Liu said, if Lu Liu pursues him, would he make Lu Liu wait two years as well?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi shook her head: “Big Brother Lu wouldn’t, Big Brother Lu is nice to people.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu pouted: “That also depends on who it is.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“That right ah, you even tried to play matchmaker to get Advisor Lu and Lady Cai Yun together. Big Brother Lu definitely knows about that.” Xiaoqi worried.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Wasn’t that all for the sake of Miss! Lu Liu inwardly muttered.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What did Big Brother Lu say?” Xiaoqi pursued.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu looked at Xiaoqi who had her eyes opened wide on a pure and simple face and suddenly pressed her lips together. She got up and ran to the bedside to finish folding the clothes. Xiaoqi flattened her mouth, gloomily and irritatedly sat next to the table and gave a light humph.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Then Xiaoqi turned her thoughts around and thought, perhaps Big Brother Lu really did reject her. Looking at Lu Liu’s expression it didn’t seem really that happy.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi was just racking her brains to think of a way to cheer Lu Liu up when Lu Liu quietly said: “Advisor Lu said his health wasn’t good so he didn’t have any plans to take a wife. I said, no matter what, I must wait two years for myself. There’s not only that one person that know how to wait dumbly.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi didn’t understand why, but it seemed Lu Liu’s voice didn’t have the usual liveliness, and her(XQ’s) mood also became a bit downcast.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Advisor Lu said, after two years he might still not be able to give me a guarantee. He said, he thanks me for the way I took care of him these past two months, he knows I’m a good lady.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi didn’t dare to press again and quietly looked at Lu Liu’s back. Her hand unconsciously clenched up.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu inaudibly sighed: “I said, I don’t need his thanks. In the past I had always felt that my status was of low value so had never dared to wish for anything, but that heart could not be controlled by me. He can’t steal my heart and just wave his hand and walk so away so easily. No matter whether he gets better or not, I’ll still accompany him.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Miss, I also will wait. Thing doesn’t mean much to me. At most, after two years I’ll look for another steadfast and competent person to marry. I, Lu Liu, am also a pretty person. When I was little Madam also praised me before, there’s no area in which I’m worse than others. Even if nothing bore fruit, at the very least I tried, so in the future when I think back to it I won’t feel regret, right?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi didn’t know why but her nose stung a bit.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Not every single person can live just by the things they love, I have to worry about my livelihood ah. I can only wait up to two years as well, and won’t wait any longer. Hehe, I’m afraid once I’m past twenty I really won’t be able to get married. Miss, don’t laugh at me, I only dare to take out two years for this simple beautiful youth. And it also counts as giving myself an explanation.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi didn’t know how she should start to talk. She felt that a faint deep sadness was penetrating from Lu Liu’s back.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Miss.” Lu Liu’s voice turned light again: “Just as I was about to leave, Advisor Lu said that he wasn’t a person that was hard to wait for. If he was still properly alive.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lu Liu smiled as she turned back: “Did Miss hear what that mean? Hehe, I’m pretty close to this Advisor’s wife position.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiao Qi grinned and giggled as well, nodding as she softly said: “That’s great.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Uhhuh, it’s really great.” Lu Liu took a deep breath, thinking silently, but the things they talked about was more than just these.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
She even said, there’s only that one Miss. Even if he never thought about the future, Miss has finally waited for the sunrise to arrive through the clouds, he should also turn his eyes away to look somewhere else. Even if he couldn’t see her, Lu Liu, he should still be able to see the good points of other girls.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Really being sentimental ah, Lu Liu lightly scoffed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Could it be that everyone’s hearts had such a corner that carried this faint melancholy and this faint worry. By exposing it, there was kind of a feeling of being a pampered unmarried daughter of a noble house. Lu Liu curled her lips, wondering if these well-bred young ladies that always seemed to be carrying some worries relied on this kind of moodiness to become full of melancholy so as to attract people’s cherishment? It seemed it really would make people become different. It was just, also too that nnh, too much like moaning over imaginary illnesses.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Life should be lived happily with joy and laughter, where would there be so many worries and bitterness ah? It was all just imaginary complaints. Lu Liu inwardly nodded.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In a little while, Lu Liu had finished folding the winter clothes and she patted off her hands as she smiled: “Lu Liu’s not going with Miss la. When Lu Liu misses Miss, Lu Liu will write Miss a letter. If Miss had something you want to have or something you want to eat, write a letter to Lu Liu as well. Lu Liu will help Miss look for it.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi nodded, not sure whether it was because she was shaken up by the sadness that came from Lu Liu just now or what, but seeing Lu Liu’s smile she somehow felt that it wasn’t as happy as it used to be.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi’s faint moodiness stayed all the way until Song Liangzhuo came back at night. As usual, Lu Liu left the two of them to eat dinner alone and hid back into her room to collect her emotions that had been in turmoil the entire day.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi was obviously a little distracted. Even when eating she would pause every couple bites. Song Liangzhuo also ate very slowly with her.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Official Song.” Xiaoqi perplexedly knitted her brows: “Lu Liu said that Big Brother Lu agreed to her ah, but how come I feel like she’s not happy?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The hand that Song Liangzhuo was using to pick a dish froze. He warmly said: “Xiaoqi is overthinking it.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi bite her chopsticks as she knitted her brows. Song Liangzhuo glanced over: “Let’s go back to Qian fu tomorrow. After staying there a couple days we should also be on our way.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi took the chopsticks back out and creased her brows as she looked at Song Liangzhuo. After a long time, she finally pouted sweetly and said: “Official Song, I’ve thought it through properly. I’ll go back and be a good daughter-in-law, but Official Song has to treat me well. If Official Song doesn’t treat me well, humph, I’ll just come back. I can come back even by myself. At that time, don’t even think of trying to trick me into going with you again.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“It’s fine if you just be yourself. And, you’re my wife.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi smoothed her lips as she laughed: “How funny, “wife”(qi1) and “seven”(qi1) actually has the same sound. Official Song, then are you calling me “little seven”(Xiaoqi) or “little wife”?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo didn’t reply, Xiaoqi also didn’t seem to be wanting him to reply. Laughing at it by herself, her mood became rather good as she continued to eat.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After those two months of epidemic, Xiaoqi didn’t seem timid anymore when facing Song Liangzhuo. But when Song Liangzhuo got angry, she would probably still be timid. However, it seemed it had been a long time since she had seen Song Liangzhuo throw her a look.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Especially after they sleepsleeped together. Xiaoqi’s benefits had clearly increased. For example, right now.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After Xiaoqi washed up, she didn’t head directly to the bed but stood to the side watching as Song Liangzhuo washed up. After he finished tidying up, Xiaoqi spread her arms open and stared straight at Song Liangzhuo.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo didn’t move. Xiaoqi’s arms swayed like a swallow’s wings.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo hadn’t even opened his mouth to say anything yet when Xiaoqi had already pouted: “My legs hurt.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Mrs. Mei said, she must learn to act cute and spoiled.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But Xiaoqi actually didn’t need to learn to act spoiled. When she was in Qian fu, from morning to night she whined like a spoiled child: wanting something, wanting to play something, wanting to eat something, wanting to scheme against someone. All she had to do was curl up next to the Fat Old Man and whine a little and she would get it.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Once, Xiaoqi got a picture album but she seriously could not understand that book. Inside, all the was drawn were some houses, courtyards, pavilions, and those types of things, yet Meng Yunfei cherished it like crazy and repeatedly asked Pandi to ask Xiaoqi for it. Xiaoqi purposely put the picture album in a very conspicuous position in the study, then after she sent out the word she happily hid inside the room and watched as Meng Yunfei sneakily crept in with his waist bent and stole the book. Then she happily ran to the Fat Old Man to tattletale.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
With Xiaoqi’s one whisper, the Fat Old Man punished Meng Yunfei and didn’t allow him to eat any non-vegetarian dish(including meat, fish, garlic, onion, etc.) for an entire month. That month Xiaoqi had treated as the interlude after getting frustrated pursuing Song Liangzhuo and she passed it completely according to her whims. That book naturally was also given to Meng Yunfei as he desired. These things Xiaoqi naturally didn’t remember, but her original nature obviously wouldn’t change just because she lost her memories. In the past, facing Song Liangzhuo, she had just suppressed her true nature due to her timidness, but these days she actually started exposing her true nature even more.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo was a bit blank. Xiaoqi pouted as she slowly took a step forward.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo’s face was a little bit hot. Walking forward, he hugged Xiaoqi and gently patted her back. But Xiaoqi had already wrapped her arms around his neck and started hanging off him.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo supported Xiaoqi’s butt and moved towards the bed. Xiaoqi, rather enjoying life, widened her little mouth and yawned. Blinking her eyes, she said: “How are we getting to your home ah? Riding a horse or riding a carriage?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Riding a carriage.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I wanted to ride a horse.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo put Xiaoqi on the bed, but seeing that she didn’t have any intention to let go just went ahead and laid down while hugging her. After fixing the blankets properly, he finally asked: “Xiaoqi knows how to ride a horse?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I don’t, but you do ah. Then if I want to ride a horse can you just bring me to ride?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Alright.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Xiaoqi smacked her lips on the corner of Song Liangzhuo’s mouth: “Husband is so great!”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Song Liangzhuo caressed Xiaoqi’s nape and the corners of his mouth hooked up.
