TFDC Chapter 216.2

Chapter 216.2 - Being disliked

Leng Yichen saw this, and how could he not understand?

He immediately waved his hands, “Drag him out and beat him up. After you finish beating him, Changle Lane will never accept this person on its premises ever again!”

As soon as Leng Yichen finished his orders, there were people already reaching out to drag the man outside.

It wasn’t known whether the man was stupid, or ridiculously stupid because at this point, he decided to reveal his identity, “You all wouldn’t dare! Do you know who this gentleman is? I am the assistant minister of revenue’s third gentleman! If you dare touch me, my dad won’t let you go!”

“It’s just an assistant minister, beat him up hard and cripple at least one leg, then throw him to the assistant minister’s residence!”


The man was quickly dragged out and not too long later, his piteous screams were heard.

Lou Qingwu silently looked up and thought about him, the assistant minister of revenue’s third gentleman, that sounded familiar.

Suddenly, she thought of something and froze.

Wasn’t this the man that the empress dowager wanted her to marry?

Thinking of his sharp mouth and ugly face, Lou Qingwu’s eyelid twitched hard.

How much did Li Miao hate her?

Last night, she’d sent people to investigate this third gentleman because after all, he was a bit infamous.

Even though the empress dowager didn’t like her, she wouldn’t truly dare to offend her because she had senior brother.

So she’d at least choose someone who was likable.

But instead, the person she chose had an awful reputation which meant that the scene was a bit strange.

She only had to slightly put out her feelers before finding out that it was Li Miao’s recommendation.

It seems like she’d given too much space for Li Miao to breathe, for him to be this carefree enough to start scheming against her.

Thinking of the dossiers on the Tang clan which had ‘right prime minister Li Miao’ emblazoned on them, Lou Qingwu’s eyes coldened.

Seeing as he dared to make the first move, then he couldn’t blame her for being a bit too ruthless.

There were some things that they had to calculate cleanly between them.

“Can you stand?” Lou Qingwu stretched out a hand towards Zi Li, wanting to help her up.

Zi Li’s eyes were red.

She’d embarrassed herself too much today and she even got drugged by some pervert.

If she didn’t have a bit of martial arts background, and had accidentally wandered into the wrong room, she really didn’t want to imagine what would’ve awaited her.

Thinking of how she had accused the wrong person, she looked towards Leng Yichen.

On his face, she saw his clearly mocking face and her heart went cold.

She thought of the mocking words he said to her, even accusing her of purposely trying to seduce him.

She instantly grew angry as she glared at him.

No matter whether or not she had accused Leng Yichen wrongly, this Changle Lane was his after all so getting into trouble here, was still his fault!

Taking another look at her hands, she gritted her teeth, “All of you are on the same side, I don’t need you to help me!”

She pushed Lou Qingwu’s hand away and instead, struggled to push herself up.

Thousand Face saw this and scowled, “Hey, what kind of person are you? My master’s helping you out of her own goodwill, and you’re like this? Actually taking revenge on someone who’s being benevolent to you?”

“I don’t need you to save me!”

Zi Li begrudged Leng Yichen’s mocking face and tightened her lips, feeling like she’d suffered too much today.

She angrily wiped her face before suddenly staggering.

Yue Ji and a few others wanted to help her but instead, Leng Yichen’s face was cold as he rebuked them, “Let her walk outside by herself! If she doesn’t need anyone’s goodwill, then she can just screw off.”


TL note:  

Ungrateful brat.

Leave a comment and follow because Zi Li is super unlikable xx


  1. “It’s just an assistant minister, beat him up hard and cripple at least one leg, then throw him to the assistant minister’s residence!” -> Is it bad that I immediately ran to "break the third leg!"? ... Probably? Okay. Orz.

    ... Welp. It's kind of amusing that what sparked off LQW's continuation of her revenge against the Li family is one dumb move by the Minister. Probably meant that if he just quietly kept to his own devices rather than being cute, he might have lived longer. (... to be fair, that sounds like 80-90% of villain plans. xD You would have been fine, but you just HAD to get in the way of protagonist and their plot armor.)

    No comments on the brat, I get the feeling I'll have a bellyful of anger and no good way to vent it over her soon enough, she gets to walk for being ungrateful this time >:( Being angry all the time isn't good for anyone's health.

    1. Nope! No problem with break the third leg. At all.
      I was actually going to suggest to "gouge out his eyes" since all he did was see and didn't get to use his third leg... But if you think about it, he didn't do all of this just to sneak a peak, now did he?
      So down with the third leg it is!! Mwahahaha

    2. So dirty πŸ’€πŸ’€

      Li Miao already has a dead soon and trauma from the dead bodies she dumped at his house but yeah, his grudge will be the end of him 🀧🀧

      Zi Li is the most frustrating character, I hate her the most after Ye Ji 😷😷

    3. Gouge his eyes?? So bloody πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

    4. Well, it IS the medieval times, no?
      Thiefs got their hands broken/cut off, guys who saw what they shouldn't got their eyes off, and guys who tried something more... Oh well.
      (That is, as long as they got caught and did so against someoene influential, like noble missus -cough cough, prince's sister!!-, or someone important's wifey)

      I mean, it WAS the dark ages, it had to had some bright side to it, no?
      (Let divine justice happen, even if it's in fictional, medieval/historical works, please)

    5. The punishment has to fit the crime and nothing happened, so crippling him is already a bit too much πŸ’€πŸ’€

      Zi Li has no power and isn't easily recognised here, and she's dumb enough to wander into a brothel (which could be easily mistaken for her being promiscuous) 😬😬

  2. I don't like Zi Li😀

  3. This Zi Li. She has the main character/mary sue syndrome. Isn't it?
    AND BRAINS (or lack of there of).

    She went from somewhat annoying to plain "ugh" in just one episode.
    And now that I see her as having the MC syndrome she's as well as gone in my heart. To the point I want her to have a major disappointment... I hope we're in for that in a few chapter... Hopefully.

    Very, very hopefully.
    How dare she treat our LQW like that?
    I hope she gets what she deserves, or rather, I hope Leng Yichen gets what he deserves... (he is her fiance, isn't him? The one she's trying to get away from? Good Riddance I'd say. You don't want this girlie, man)
    But LQW is Feng Yege's. ><~ <3
    Is there another decent female in this novel?
    Cause I'm drawing a blank. oΓ΅

    1. *cough* Lan Bai is pretty adorable. <3

    2. Zi Li has always been brainless like hello you have the richest guy in the world as your fiance, and you decide that running to find Feng Yege is going to solve anything?? πŸ˜ͺπŸ˜ͺ

      Zi Li gets a healthy dose of karma but she takes everyone down with her if she can't get what she wants πŸ’€πŸ’€

    3. Lan Bai and Yue Ji as well as one of Feng Yege's female subordinates are 'good'. The empress isn't bad per se, but she just wants what's best for her son which is fair 😣😣

    4. I thought Lan Bai was Feng Shiyi's? (am I confusing all the Fengs? or characters in general?)
      One of Feng Yege's subordinate. They were in this somewhat antagonistic/rivals relationship that was kinda cute. That's just like, one of the ways to start liking someone. And since in chinese novels the MC's servants usually tend to get with the Male Character's servants....

      Oh, well, I was already kinda shipping, so I didn't count her.

      But Yue Ji... I think I might approve, but she gets so few screen time I barely remember her/her name. But this might have more potential.
      I shall observe carefully Γ“_Γ’

      (Zi Li seems spoiled rotten, brainless, and in a position of certain power/influence - plus awfully annoying, prepotent /overbearing. The first is a REALLY dangerous and bad mix, the second batch is just recipe for trouble/headache/overall "PLEASE GET HER OUT OF HERE. SHE'S KILLING ME. I CAN'T STAND THIS GIRL ANYLONGER)

    5. Feng Shiyi = male and Feng Yege's subordinate.

      Feng Qi (probably) is a female subordinate of Feng Yege.

      Lan Bai = girl that LQW bought as a maid, she died for LQW in her past life.

      (spoiler: Lan Bai has a happy ending that doesn't involve Feng Yege's subordinates.)

      Zi Li is super annoying but she's not going away any time soon 🀒🀒
