Caught in my Own Trap Special: Life After Marriage – Part 4 (FINAL)
This round of pregnancy for He He, from conception to the birth was surprisingly smooth.
It is a very healthy boy. The day when he was born, everyone can finally say: “Yo, this little mouth looks like He He. The smaller nose is quite alike.”
He He is very pleased. Although they went on to say: “Of course, in more than seventy percent of him still look like Xiao Xie when he was a child.”
At home the most authoritative is Father Zheng, Zheng Xie’s father. The glorious task of naming the grandson was entrusted to him and He He’s mother. “Last time, I named Yao Yao. This time, let the grandmother name him, okay?”
He He’s mother in her academic fields had many achievements. Professor moter said: “The more simple the child’s name is, the smoother life would be for him.”
Zheng Xie and his father said: “Yes, for example, the name you gave He He is very good. Out of all the children I know, her name is one of the best.”
He He’s mother thought for a while and said: “Otherwise….. Xiao Xiao? Le Le? Huan Huan? Xiao Xie, which one do you think is better?”
He He was almost in tears as she listen gravely to what Zheng Xie said: “All seems good to me. Dad, what do you think?”
After several discussion, Zheng Grandson, at last, four votes were in favor with one abstention absolute advantage, was named Zheng Le Le. The votes are: Zheng Father, He He’s mother, Zheng Xie and Zheng Zhu You.
And because He He’s voice was missing, so her precious child born had to suffer such a tragic. So when she was again authorized to take the pet name for the child, she had to say: “This child from the beginning in my stomach is particularly well-behaved. After birth, do not cry nor give any trouble anyone. Let’s just call him “Guai Guai”.”
Her request was approved.
When Guai Guai was slightly bigger, the name given finally found the problem.
Zheng Father shouted: “Yao Yao, Guai Guai, come, Grandpa take you out to play.”
He He’s mother shouted: “Yao Yao, Guai Guai, come back to study.”
The confused pedestrians talked about it:
“How these children are named ah? Yao Yao Guai Guai?”
妖妖怪怪 (pin ying: Yāo yāoguài guài) – the guai guai after Yao Yao in mandarin, sound like Yao Yao is strange
“The child is so cute, why are they called monster?”
“Nowadays these parents ah, just for themselves, there is really no responsibility for the children. Really no morale.”
~ THE END ~
I hope that everyone had enjoyed this bonus on Xiao He He and Zheng Xie. I had enjoyed translating while reading them. It is indeed very entertaining. Especially the last part today where the naming of the poor boy. So, in the end, He He did get her wish to have another child and it is a boy! Completing the set of a girl and a boy for the Zheng’s family.
Hopefully once I am back from my vacation, come September, I would be back with another new novel for everyone. Have a great month of August everyone! I am sure I will miss translation as much as most of you would miss the daily read. Stay healthy and safe.
