Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Sujiazhai was not a huge village, it was occupied by over two hundred families.
When Shao Yibai asked for a lady called Su Qingdai, he was greeted cordially by the people from the village.
“Oh, you’re looking for Little Darkie the Third?”
Shao Yibai was startled, he wondered, ‘Su Qingcheng isn’t that dark…’
After a short journey on a bluestone path through a bamboo forest, a green-bricked building came into view.
There were a total of four houses, and dried bamboo shoots were seen laid out in the courtyard. During the last ten days of October, the rivers underwent depression, and the autumn rain had begun, causing the air to be humid. Due to these reasons, the dried bamboo shoots appeared to be in poor color. A young girl was seen flipping over those dried bamboo shoots while holding a book, unaware of Shao Yibai’s presence.
On the other hand, a big golden-haired local dog in a corner was very alert, by which it barked loudly at Shao Yibai.
Although the dog was a native dog, it was sharp-witted. When it caught sight of Shao Yibai’s fierce look, it fell silent after a few barks.
Owing to the cold look of the handsome-looking man, the young girl was so taken aback that she dropped her book when she stood up.
“Who are you looking for?” The girl appeared to be 16 or 17 years old. She had dark skin and was seemingly malnourished as she was so thin that she lacked the radiance of a young lady.
“Young lady, do you have a sister called Su Qingdai?”
It was an uncle from the village who led him here, and by the looks of it, this young lady was probably Xiao Dai’s little sister.
“That’s me…” The young lady was surprised by his visit. Moreover, he spoke fluent Mandarin. Most importantly, this man gave an unapproachable impression as he showed a sense of oppression, which frightened the young lady.
“That’s you??” Shao Yibai was utterly shocked. “Then…you have a sister…”
“I have two sisters…” The young lady hesitated, looked inside the house, then yelled, “Dad, someone’s here to look for sister…”
While she raised her voice, she scurried into the house. Subsequently, an old man came out and shouted at her, “Why are you screaming like a ghost? What do you mean by your sister?”
Old Man Su had just returned from playing cards where he lost some money, thus he was having an unpleasant mood. Just as he was about to take a nap, he was woken up by his youngest daughter, which caused him to feel very grumpy.
Shao Yibai furrowed his brows as he looked at the man who came out of the house. He did not look old, but he had laziness written all over him. After the young lady who claimed to be Su Qingdai was lectured, she hid behind the old man and stole glances at Shao Yibai.
“Who are you?” Finally, Old Man Su realized that another man was standing in the courtyard.
As soon as Old Man Su noticed his attire, he grumbled softly, “Could it be that my second daughter caused trouble outside? Now he’s here to settle accounts?”
“Sir, hello!” Shao Yibai spoke gently. He saw the young lady’s eyes glimmer as if it was her first time encountering a handsome man with such a deep and charming voice.
“I’d like to ask, you have a daughter, Su Qingdai…” In actual fact, Shao Yibai was at a loss, he had no idea of Su Qingcheng’s real name at home.
“This is Xiao Dai!” The old man pulled over the young lady hiding behind her, then continued with a low voice, “The girl you’re looking for is Chengzi the Second, right?”
‘Chengzi the Second’…
Confused, Shao Yibai simply nodded.
“Did she cause any trouble outside? D*mn this girl! I made her marry Old Liu from the grocery store in the town, yet she ran away after beating him up. Motherf*cker, I lost 10 thousand dollars because of that! This little girl, she even came home a few days ago to write out a certificate for an identification card…”
While Old Man Su complained, he pointed a finger to the sky and cursed furiously, “D*mn you girl! I was going to drag her over to Old Liu for her to admit her mistake, but she acquired some skills and attacked me. Even her two brothers were no match for her! Tell me, did she fight you and injured you?”
Shao Yibai frowned even more as he cast a vacant look at Old Man Su, he understood the situation here and there.
Looks like when Su Qingcheng returned a while ago to get her certificate, this man actually still planned to sell her off.
Luckily, “Xiao Dai” has superb martial art skills, and beat him up so badly that he probably pissed in his pants!
“I’m telling you, if she caused any trouble outside, I’m not going to be responsible for it. She’s no longer a part of Su Family, and wherever she goes, it’s best that she dies outside…”
All along, Old Man Su still took Shao Yibai as a debt collector.
Right then, the little girl pulled the corner of her father’s shirt, and sobbed softly, “Daddy, second sister gave you 50 thousand dollars, how can you speak of her like that…”
Instantly, Old Man Su became speechless, and he dared not say anything else as if he was worried that Shao Yibai became aware that he possessed this amount of money.
Shao Yibai was so infuriated that he gritted his teeth.
The man sneered, “As a parent, your dereliction of duty is truly out of the norm! Initially, I wanted to thank you for raising her, looks like it was an unnecessary thought!”
Old Man Su was baffled. However, “Little Darkie the Third” who was beside him immediately pieced the puzzles together, and cried as she said, “I get it now, you’re the lover that my sister told me about…”
Shao Yibai was dumbstruck. His tall body could be seen trembling as he muttered softly, “She told you about me?”
“Mmm, wait here, second sister has something for you!”
Little Sanhei ran into the house, retrieved a diary, and passed it to Shao Yibai. “This is second sister’s diary. Before she left, she told me to pass this to you if you ever come! Oh right, second sister’s real name is Su Qingcheng…”
‘Su Qingcheng! Su Qingcheng!’ Shao Yibai hugged that thick diary close to his chest and cursed to himself repeatedly!
“You despicable lady, you even lied to me about your name! You cheated my feelings, and now you’ve disappeared, nowhere to be found…”
When Little Darkie the Third saw how sorrowful her “brother-in-law” was, she was upset too. As she sobbed, Old Man Su was just dumbfounded.
The d*mn girl even left a diary behind?
Shao Yibai thanked the young lady in a hoarse voice, then took a good look at the courtyard that Su Qingcheng lived in since she was young, which made his heart sank deeper.
Once Shao Yibai returned to the hotel, he opened the diary and went on a trip down Su Qingcheng’s memory lane from the very beginning.
From getting acquainted, to being friends, then falling in love at last. Shao Yibai read the delicate writing of the woman. “I wish to spend the rest of my life with him and to stay with him and only him in this lifetime. Thank you, God, for letting us cross paths…”
The man who had never wept before burst out crying. For a tough military guy, he was so hurt that he felt as if his heart was hollowed out…
The lights in Minghuang Club were dimly lit, where a few bewitching ladies were seen surrounding Shao Yibai. As intimate as they were to him, they dared not get too close.
Recently, this prince of Shao Family became a regular customer and was always extravagant.
Every time, he was either with the son of Zhang Family or the gentry of Li Family. They were usually accompanied by a few ladies, who only had to drink a couple of drinks with them to get red packets of a few thousand dollars.
Unlike other lustful rich men, Mr. Shao was always courtly and cultured, such that he never took petty advantages of them.
For a rich and attractive man like him, countless women desired to spend a night with him. Sadly, Mr. Shao was well known to only indulge in sensual pleasures, and never brought women home…
“Mr. Shao, you haven’t been visiting. Tell me, do you have a new sweetheart?”
Jiao Jiao leaned into Shao Yibai with a seductive look on her fair-skinned face.
“You really fit the name Jiao Jiao 1 !” Shao Yibai pinched her face. “Since when did I look for another woman? I’ve been very occupied lately, which is why I haven’t had the time to come. Look, once I’m free, I’m here!”
While the striking man was vaguely perverse, every twinkle and smile of his was simply captivating.
As for the other ladies, they rolled their eyes as they found it intolerable.
Everyone knew that Shao Yibai always called for Jiao Jiao during his visits!
They made no sense of what was so outstanding about Jiao Jiao.
Shao Yibai was the only one who knew that Jiao Jiao’s eyes bore a resemblance to Su Qingcheng…
