Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Chapter 27.10

A happy Monday! Have a fantastic week ahead everyone. Where have time flown by?

In the last chapter, Zheng Xie had ‘accidentally’ hurt Cen Shi. Is it accidental or he is doing it deliberately because he was upset with He He? 

Some interesting conversation between He He and Cen Shi. He He is still denying how she feels about Zheng Xie….. Sigh! I wonder when we will get to read about He He admitting to how she truly feels?

Enjoy the read today! Hope that everyone will have a fantastic start of the week!

Chapter 27.10: A quiet life

In the other car, Zheng Xie whom as always drives his car very fast. But he is not steady tonight. He illegally overtakes a car, he flashed and almost hit into the other car.

Yang Wei Qi noticed his poor state, touched his forehead and then held his hand: “Fortunately no fever. But how come your hand is shaking? Are you feeling uncomfortable? Do you want to go to the hospital?”

“Tomorrow. It is late tonight. I am feeling a little tired. I want to sleep earlier.” Zheng Xie slowed down the car.

“That is right. You just got back today. I should not have dragged you out shopping.”

“It is okay.”

“Tomorrow afternoon……”

“I have cancelled the dinner.”

“Why?”

“Nothing. We have seen each other today.”

Yang Wei Qi hesitate and then asked: “Did you had a dis-agreement with He He?”

Zheng Xie is silent.

“You have not seen her for a long time. Why when you meet her, you make it uncomfortable for each other. When I went downstairs to look for her, she was weeping.”

“Let’s not mentioned about her. Let’s change the subject.”

“Then, do you think, if I were to ask her to be my maid of honor, would she be willing?”

Zheng Xie looked straight ahead and said: “Then, change another subject.”

Yang Wei Qi gently sighed: “Sometimes, I really sympathize with you. Even when you are angry, people are so depressed. You must have so little pleasures in life.”

They remain silent all the way.

When Yang Wei Qi got home, she finally broke the silence. She said: “Just take it as me at wrong earlier. You don’t pull a long face and smile please.”

Zheng Xie smiled a little: “I am just in a bad mood. You don’t mind me.”

“You will actually admit to being in a bad mood? I thought you have always been in control of your emotions and mood.”

They sat quietly in the car for a while. Yang Wei Qi said: “Recently, I feel like I am in a trance. I keep thinking about the moment when we first met. Do you still remember it?”

“The parking lot?” Zheng Xie thought for a moment before answering.

“And then there is the blind date. Just like the beginning to a novel. But novel are usually tortuous. Whereas we were so smooth sailing, incredibly smooth, almost like a dream-like.”

“You have been working too much overtime recently and did not get enough rest. So you are over thinking everything.”

“Maybe.”

The next day, yang Wei Qi met up with a magazine columnist. She has been providing them with female rights legal advisory services. And their personal friendship is also good.”

“Such a great weekend, not accompanying your fiancé, but instead come and work overtime with me. You are such a workaholic!”

“I would be travelling for a week. So I did not want to you to miss your column.”

When she heard the destination of her trip, she gasped: “That place is bad for you. The weather is bad, people are downright fast. You are getting married soon, a trip over there, even enduring for weeks, you would not be able to restore your skin. Your boss is not taking good care of you?”

“I requested. The place is close to nature, less urban atmosphere. With that, you can think more clearly.”

“I heard that woman are most likely to get marriage phobia. Guess you are no exception.”

Yang Wei Qi bent down to pick up a dropped napkin from the ground. The necklace inside her collar slip out, exposing the chain where her ring were hanging.

“Wow! What a beautiful diamond. He must be very fond of you.”

“Why you do not say that he loves me a lot? Or that he is very rich?” Yang Wei Qi said softly.

“Slip of the tongue. Slip of the tongue.” The other party shrugged.

Yang Wei Qi gently sighed: “Last time you said that man has red and white rose complex. Actually I was just thinking, if it not that some men are like little prince. When there is already a rose in his mind, then other roses, no matter what color or species, all other ten thousand roses are just another rose.”

“For someone who is getting married. Do not overthink everything. You are a person in legal profession, you should pay more attention to the evidence. Diamond is the deposit while marriage certificate is property rights. Something that you already have in hand, why care about what others do?”

“I am probably a little burnout recently.”

“Okay. Before you had said, there are three type of quality that you admired the most in a man. Courage, responsibility and family. Zheng Xie are exactly all these. In fact, there are no many women who are lucky enough to encounter their favorite type.”

“Yes ah. How come I am so lucky?”

“My good friend said, when it comes to man, not to be too serious. As long as it is the matter of principle, closing an eye would be better.” The editor said: “Let’s get back down to business talk. A person like me does not have such luck like you.”

    are YWC is stupid, dumb, or pretend to be both of it? did she really can see the reason why ZX and HH became like that? even CS can guess correctly. did marry ZX really became her obsession or what for she willing marry a man that not loves her.
    she is clever and pretty, sure she deserve a man that loves her.

    1. That was what I had been trying to say about YWC. I like her at the beginning of this novel but now I really dislike YWC to the bone. As she can’t see there r tension between HH n ZX yet she kept adding salt to rub it into ZX n HH in separate occasion. HH’s mom n CS sees it yet YWC can’t see it. Maybe YWC thought she will be marrying a young handsome rich man who r willing to take care of her life so she can’t see anyone else happiness or unhappiness. Hence I don’t feel sorry for YWC at all. Not only HH n ZX need to wake up, YWC need to wake up from her cloud nine too n see not everyone r happy around her.

      Everyone hated ZX because he can’t make up his mind…wait a minute..did everyone else give him a chance..he is sick n everyone made up his mind for him..HH announced to ZX’s dad that ZX is engaged…were he really engaged until everyone think so…he casually mentioned it to YWC n she also think is for real…I am not saying that ZX has no fault.. for crying out loud the fellow is sick with flu…

      1. i couldn’t more agree with you…
        actually ZX had tried to think and act accordingly, but HH really didn’t gave him a chance. She run a way and push him to YWC and declare to the family that he gonna marry YWC.
        when ZX tried to break with YWC, she went on business trip, even now she planning to run from reality by using business trip too.
        for once i want ZX to berserk and shout about his feeling. he is too composed. wake up bro, you need to act on behalf yourseft.

  2. “My good friend said, when it comes to man, not to be too serious. As long as it is the matter of principle, closing an eye would be better.” This quote is sad…is YWC believes this and take it seriously, she’s done for….she’s taking a road of pain and loneliness.
