Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Epilogue 3, Part 12

Its already Saturday and half of September is gone! Where has time flown by?

Anyone watched Decendant of The Sun, a popular korean drama that was a super hit some time back? Who could resist good looking men in uniform, right? Just like ‘big boss’…. 🙂 

The day finally arrived for Zhong Lian Chen to meet Cheng Shao Rong face to face. Did she successfully convinced him to change his mind of wanting to marry her? Or Cheng Shao Rong is adamant about marrying her….

From this chapter, I sense that Cheng Shao Rong did not want to marry Zhong Lian Chen because of ‘responsibility’…. but more because he truly loved her for many years. His ex-girlfriend, Jiang Wei could only be a replacement for Zhong Lian Chen whom he had failed to capture her heart…. 

Exciting read ahead today, so do enjoy the read. This OTP will be around for another few more post (I guess) before Lan Ning and Yan Ru Yu returns…….

Epilogue 3.12: Special Accidental Episode

Zhong Lian Chen had planned very carefully.

After getting off the plane, she went to the hotel to take a shower and something to eat. And then she drove to the cantonment sites where Cheng Shao Rong is at. Based on her experience, the surrounding of the base is where the beautiful scenery are. Finally, recharged and full of energy, she is comfortable enough to sit down and discuss serious matter with Cheng Shao Rong that are related to both of their future happiness.

Her goal is to make Cheng Shao Rong understand that marrying her is a very unwise decision. Not only sorry for him, but for their parents have whom supported them. Most importantly, sorry to the party and people, sorry for the harmonious society. She must do the work and persuade him to put down the burden and scraping the whole idea.

As a result, her plane was delayed for half an hour. When she got off the plane and took the car over, she was still twenty minutes late.

They originally agreed to meet up in the café near his camp. Then when Cheng Shao Rong heard that she had not eaten, change the place to a rotisserie. When she was depressed looking for the place, when she arrived, Cheng Shao Rong was sitting and waiting for her. When he saw her, she immediately got up, dressed in the military uniform, he stood straight and gave her a salute.

Zhong Lian Chen cursed him under her breath.

This is really awesome.

She had always been in a good control. Sure enough, as people said, anyone looks hot dressed in the uniform. When Cheng Shao Rong is not dressed in uniform he is generally handsome. But now putting him in the uniform…. That was awesome! This is her first time seeing him in his uniform.

Zhong Lian Chen is so taken aback that she forgot the purpose of her trip.

Fortunately, Cheng Shao Rong did not forget. He said: “This is the only shop around here that is more formal. I cannot go far. I have only forty minutes. You eat first…..” slightly apologetically.

Wow! He thought that she is the kind that must eat in star restaurant? When she eat out alone, she will also eat roadside stalls, ok? She has no such superficial thing. Oh yes, fill up her stomach first before anything else.

The waiter served the food. At noon, many people are there for a meal, so the service is too slow. She is hungry and took big mouthful of meat. After eating everything on her tray, the next course is still not sent.

She felt slightly embarrassed when she saw Cheng Shao Rong’s place still filled with meat. As a lady, she should not be like a vice-like gluttonous. Such a shame. Fortunately, she is not here to meet anyone else. She had after all done more embarrassing things in front of Cheng Shao Rong in the past.

Zhong Lian Chen looked around to hide her hungry look. Cheng Shao Rong quietly pushed his plate in front of her: “I have not touched these. You eat.” And then he got up to help her take other dishes.

Hey, she had forgotten. This restaurant not only served barbecue meat, but many other buffet dishes as well.

This South American style rotisserie is stationed very close to the barrack. So there are many uniforms brothers and beautiful sisters. It seems that the soldier brothers also have very good leisure life. Her mind quickly turned to the large tracts of American soldiers’ barracks in Aventura stories.

He is back from taking the food. Really touched. She actually remembers what she likes. He took all her favorite food. And he even carefully help her singled out the coriander and ginger. These are the stuff that she don’t eat from childhood.

Zhong Lian Chen gets emotional easily. She got unthinking emotional and said: “Cheng Shao Rong, in the future, whoever marry you is very fortunate.”


Hey, hell. How could she forgot about the main purpose she is here? Time to get down to business.

Zhong Lian Chen wipe her mouth with the napkin. She then recover into a lady-like posture.

“Cheng Shao Rong, in this world, the most stupid thing is to fix a mistake with another mistake. This is called fixing the wrong with another wrong. Certainly not a negative to make a positive.”

Cheng Shao Rong looked at her quietly, did not speak.

“强扭的瓜不甜, together, we will not be happy.”

强扭的瓜不甜 (pin ying: qiǎng niǔ de guā bù tián) – means Nothing forcibly done is going to be agreeable

Cheng Shao Rong still kept quiet.

Zhong Lian Chen: …………

Cheng Shao Rong: ……………

Zhong Lian Chen: (babbling away)……

Cheng Shao Rong: ………..

Zhong Lian Chen: wu wu wa wa……..

Cheng Shao Rong: ……………

Zhong Lian Chen exhausted her patience: “Are you listening to me?”

Cheng Shao Rong: “I heard every single words.”

Zhong Lian Chen: “I am telling you. I do not want to marry you!”

Cheng Shao Rong: “Xiao Chen, do you have someone in your heart?”

Kao… insulting her. Since she was fifteen years old, she had set a grand ambition. She wants to be independent-minded modern woman, facing this life. In this life facing the handsome men, it is never right.
