When a Snail Loves by Ding Mo: Part 54

The blazing sun was burning up the earth, on the vast expansive plains, the grass and plants were moving gently in the wind. Between earth and sky, it was as if they were only in two colors, the color of blue water on the above and down was the color of lush green.


The train galloped through the hill, the train’s whistle roared, breaking the silence.  


This was the second day that the task force came to Burma.


Upon arrival in Yangon the capital of Myanmar yesterday, the officials from both sides, China and Myanmar had a meeting. China’s purpose was not only to arrest “Brother Lu” but wipe out the entire cross-border criminals under her control. So today the team was going to Kachin state by train, the place with a high possibility that “brother Lu’s” criminals gang might be stationed.

 “If you go to Burma, look out for the “golden python”. This is what Ye Zi Xiao’s words were to Xu Xu.

Golden Python is a huge Burmese python. Its body is large with colorful patterns, its ferocious, and poisonous.

Xu Xu believed that from the wording and sentence placement, it referred to the “golden python”, but only hinted to be prepared and gave no explicit guidance; basically had a certain level of credibility.

Of course, gold python may also be a code for someone or some organization. But due to the lack of information between China and Burma, Xu Xu couldn’t find anything after she searched the police’s database.

WARNING: The part in the car after the party of the chapter might be too hot aka sexual for some folks🙂 lol 

Xu Xu gave the impression that she’s a person who doesn’t pay attention to her clothing style. The invariable dress suit at work and casual sportswear outside of work, other than that, she never wore any makeup along with the indifferent expression on her face, all the more to made her look simple and plain.

But in fact, Xu Xu was actually very tedious about her clothing. However, she only wore the style that “she deemed to be the appropriate style for her”.

This summer, for most people in Lin city, was hot, peaceful, and ordinary.

As for Xu Xu and Ji Bai, their lives were sweet and involved more throbbing feelings.  

As for Ye Zi Xiao, he stood on top of the Yip Group at the age of twenty. But at the moment, what remained of the Yip group was only one that was entangled, chaotic, hurriedly retreating and embattled.

After the Yip case broke out, the stock price plummeted and continued to go down daily for many days.

At the same time, Zhang Shi Yong aggressively announced the divorce with Ye Qiao while separating from the Yip Group, and started a new company. He also swept away with him all the businesses, real estate teams, and customers; half of Yip group.

Suppliers and distributors, whether instigated by Zhang Shi Yong or eager to protect themselves, one by one, had terminated all contracts. The large capital of the group suddenly ruptured.

They went to a restaurant located in the shopping center.  

It was rush hour, there were many people so they had to wait for a while. The  dining room they walked into had a spacious dark red sofa and soft lightning.  The bright night-lights were reflected in the windows, quiet and very heart warming.

Xu Xu sat on the sofa and received a menu from the waiter. She had flipped a few pages, when the sofa space beside her slightly sunk, a familiar warm air, close yet far, surrounded her.

微微一笑很倾城 (Just One Smile Is Very Alluring)(Review)


I read this C-novel around 3 years ago when I was still really into online games, probably as much as the Wei Wei in this novel so this novel got me interested right away. Because of my addiction to online games, I was totally biased and loved it so much. Thinking about it now, I don’t think it’s that great of a story because it’s a bit cliche but the Gu Man did a great job because she made a typical story interesting with the small details and the online game setting.

At the China- Myanmar border.

The water of the Mekong River was flowing rapidly, green trees looming on both sides of the river.

On the highway behind the mountain, a military vehicle braked all of the sudden, a number of armed soldiers jumped out of the car and rushed into the jungle.  After a while, they had surrounded the hillside area.
