Caught in my Own Trap (作茧自缚) : Epilogue 3, Part 24

Translating this chapter gives me a mix feeling. It started off with the happy feeling seeing the progress of Zhong Lian Chen and Cheng Shao Rong. However, the chapter ended with another storm ahead of this couple. Sigh…. nothing seems to go right with them…. I wonder how many more ‘storms’ do they need to battle before they finally end up together….

Enjoy the read. Zhong Lian Chen and Cheng Shao Rong will be back the day after tomorrow!

Epilogue 3.24: Special Accidental Episode

Zhong Lian Chen, finding a new life goal, her life is once again enriched.

Her previous days are also very substantial. It should be said that her life has now become more fulfilled.

In the day time, she volunteered to help with the donations statistic and registration of the materials. At night, she habitually waited for Cheng Shao Rong’s phone or mail. But she always failed to wait for them. So she is worried. Worried that he is too tired. Worried about the hard conditions. Worried that he is in danger.

One day, she plans to be part of the volunteer team to the disaster area. She would like to see if she had the chance to see Cheng Shao Rong. Father heard about the news and head over to bring her back.

She suddenly found herself so concerned about Cheng Shao Rong. She is worried about him all the time. Is this the legendary great love?

She had not like Zhang Ai Ling. She thinks that this woman is cool and thin. However, when Cheng Shao Rong used the lesson learned from her when quoting words, she read more to get familiar with the enemy.

Her deepest impression if the 《倾城之恋》 – Love of Allure. It takes the city to fall only to achieve the love of two person together.

And now, she shamefully thought, in such a national distress, she actually achieved her long awaited love.

Right, of course this is love.

Since Cheng Shao Rong do not know how to love, then their love is entirely up to her.

How happy it is to be master of the house!

Many days later, Cheng Shao Rong finally withdraw from the disaster area. His last phone call only contain a few words. He said that he received a new task. He would not be able to contact her for a long time. There is no way of communication.

But there is no danger, so she is not to worry.

When he finished his task, he can take a long vacation. Then they can have their wedding.

Zhong Lian Chen thinks that the blue sky outside the window is particularly blue. The clouds in the sky are white and even the sound of the crickets are beautiful.

She began to seriously plan her wedding. The dresses, rings, flowers as well as the banquet arrangement. Her days are now more fulfilling than before.

The next day, Zhong Lian Chen received a shipment. It is sent from Cheng Shao Rong’s troop but the handwriting is not his.

She open it feeling very confused. Inside the courier, there is a sealed letter. And on the envelope is indeed his handsome writing. One that she had not seen for many years.

Zhong Lian Chen opened the enveloped feeling excited. The words were scribbled but it does seems more chic.

But the content of the letter-

Xiao Chen,

I have thought about it. You are right. We really cannot have a lifetime of love.

Moreover, I really cannot forget Jiang Wei.

I want to marry you, as you say, it is to be responsible to you. And also it is the want of our elders. To make them happy.

But since you are so free and easy woman with lofty ideas, then let’s forget our marriage.

As you say, we continue to be good friends. Let’s not continue the mistake.

I wish you to find the most suitable person soon. To find a vigorous love. And then marry him and have an eternal life.

Yours sincerely.

Salute.

Zhong Lian Chen was shocked! And then she was angered till she trembled.

She fought back her anger and read the letter carefully again.

She studied the thin piece of paper several times. She finally confirmed that she did not misunderstand the meaning of his words. And this letter is definitely his handwriting.

Jerk! Bad guy! Surely he hated her for writing him a letter refusing his marriage. So now he is returning it… a tooth for a tooth!

Zhong Lian Chen first thought is to call him to tell him off. But could not reach him. Oh yes, he had said. She could not contact him for a while.

Premeditated!

Zhong Lian Chen angrily tear the letter into tow and bite it a few time. She then throw it onto the ground and stomp on it a few time. But her anger is still there…. Finally she use the scissors to cut the piece of paper into hundreds of pieces before flushing it down the toilet!

Zhong Lian Chen felt that she should cry but her anger is so extreme, there were no tears. Moreover, the parents are not home. Even the servants are out to buy food. So she do not even have anyone to complain.

She calmed down a little. She felt that she will not tell the others first. It is too embarrassing, that she was dump by a guy.

However, she is about to explode. So she must find a place to breath.

Zhong Lian Chen dug out her perennial suitcase. Very good. Her passport is still valid and the visa did not expire. She want to go somewhere far away to lick the wound.

She left a note for her parents and quickly ran away.

Goodbye Cheng Shao Rong! The next time I come back, if I still remember who you are, I will follow your surname! XXXX!
