The alley is full of Hangzhou’s century-old heritage. It’s very narrow. There are only dim street lamps in the alley, and you can vaguely see moss and weeds growing in the corners.

Shen Qinglan managed to find the store after she turned a few corners. It was also her good luck. Today, the old woman hasn’t closed her door yet.

“Ma’am, do you still have some sweet-scented osmanthus cakes?” Shen Qinglan spoke softly to the white-haired old woman in front of her.

The old woman was really white-haired, she didn’t find one strand of black on her.

The old woman looked up and saw a beautiful girl. She didn’t sound like a native. She smiled and said, “Little girl, I’ve finished selling today. Please come back tomorrow.”[translateindo.C0m does not post chapters any where else]

Shen Qinglan was somewhat regretful. “I’m leaving tomorrow, I’m afraid I can’t come. I heard an old man say that your Osmanthus Cake is the most authentic, so I thought I’d come and buy some pieces for my friends to taste. It seems that I’m not lucky enough to eat it.”

Shen Qinglan saw the old woman’s loving expression and thought of her Grandmother. She could not help but say a few more words.

When Shen Qinglan turned to leave, the old woman stopped her. “Little girl, wait a minute. I have some ingredients left in my house. If you’re not in a hurry, I’ll make another batch for you in half an hour.”

Shen Qinglan’s eyes are slightly shined and her rare emotion showed. “Thank you, Ma’am.”

The old woman smiled and asked her to sit down in the shop. Then, a younger woman came out with a cup of tea in her hand. “You should drink some tea first. My grandmother is already making it.”

“Thank you.”

The young woman chuckled, “Are you visiting Hangzhou?”

Shen Qinglan nodded.

“I guessed it, but it’s very good that you could find this place. Many locals in Hangzhou don’t even know about this shop, but many people who have eaten my grandmother’s sweet-scented osmanthus cake will come again.  When you have eaten it, you will want to eat it again when you come back next time.”  Her voice is very soft and waxy, like the typical Jiangnan woman. Her whole person is also warm and gentle, it’s easy to associate with the four words ‘Yan Yu Jiangnan’.

(烟雨江南/ Yanyu Jiangnan = misty rain Jiangnan / a gentlewoman from south of the Yangtze River. Unsure of this explanation I found online, please comment below if you know the whole meaning. Thank you!)

The young woman chatted with Shen Qinglan. Although Qinglan did not talk much, she wasn’t bored while waiting.

Half an hour later, the old woman came out with several boxes and handed them to Shen Qinglan in a bag.

“Little girl, this Osmanthus Cake is not easy to preserve, you’d better finish it in a few days.”

Shen Qinglan took over, “Thank you, Ma’am.”

When she paid, Shen Qinglan deliberately gave her a little extra.

“Girl,” came the voice of the young woman behind her, “You go out that way, the road ahead is Changhua Street. It’s easy to get a taxi there.”

“Thank you.”  Shen Qinglan thanked them, turned around and walked in the direction that the young woman said.

This alley is very long and very quiet. There aren’t many people in it.

But before long, Shen Qinglan heard a voice calling for help. It’s sounded like a woman’s voice, it also sounds very young.

Shen Qinglan stepped forward and helplessly raised her eyebrows. Why does she always encounter such a thing? Last time it was Shi Feng, this time it’s when she came out to buy a sweet-scented osmanthus cake.

Does she have the legendary black beckoning constitution?

Shen Qinglan did not continue. She was not a saint and had no obligation. Last time, she rescued Shi Feng purely by accident. If it hadn’t been for Shi Feng’s fierce lone wolf eyes looking at her, she wouldn’t even be moved by Shi Feng’s death.

In the distance, there were some men’s obscene voices. This made her curious.

Shen Qinglan’s footsteps turned again, and it seemed that she was going to return to the road she came from.

After two steps, there was a woman’s scream behind her. Shen Qinglan beautiful eyes flashed, helplessly sighed.

“Let her go.”  Qinglan’s voice echoed in the darkness, instantly attracting people’s attention.[ not reading this at Translateindo? it’s been stolen]

“Hey, boss, another one.”  A lewd male voice sounded. When Qinglan found the source, the person talking had yellow hair. Judging by how he looks, he was a young man.

The man he called boss was a red-haired guy, and not very old. There was also another man present, who had green-hair, like a turtle. The whole hair-do really looked like a green turtle. The three people put together perfectly formed a traffic light.

At the same time, there was also a woman who had just screamed. When she saw Shen Qinglan’s face clearly under the street lamp, her eyes suddenly widened.

“Run, sister. It’s dangerous here!” Surprisingly, it was Yan Xi. Her face is wet with tears.

Shen Qinglan did not run. She looked at Yan Xi and saw that besides her pale face, her clothes were still neat.

“So, you know this girl? Coming to play with this big brother, too?” The Red Hair spoke, looking at Shen Qinglan, his eyes penetrating with lewdness.

When the other two heard this, they laughed, and Green hair’s hand extended toward Shen Qinglan. Yan Xi saw it and felt anxious.

“Sister, run quickly and find the police!”

Yellow Hair held Yanxi down and refused to let her move. They had not succeeded to amuse themselves with her, how can three big men share one little girl. But he did not expect to attract Shen Qinglan, a great beauty.

It was an unexpected surprise.
