The Lady in Butcher’s House 玉面桃花总相逢 Episode 4 Recap
Knowing the news of Xu Qingjia’s disappearance, Hu Jiao remembered that there are often wolves in the vicinity of Xishan, so she mobilized her relatives and friends, and even A Niu and others to search for it in the deep mountains. As it was getting late, a heavy rain suddenly came, and because the surroundings were dark, there were no fingers to reach, making the search much more difficult.
When Hu Jiao lowered her head and found the wolf footprints on the ground, she realized that something was wrong, she hurriedly took out her dagger, and walked forward while observing the surrounding movement. Suddenly hearing footsteps behind her, she subconsciously threw her fist away, but unexpectedly it was Xu Qingjia, whom everyone had been looking for for a long time.
Because it was still raining outside, the two hid in the cave first. Xu Qingjia recounted how he escaped from the wolf’s mouth, and did not understand why he was able to outrun the wolf, but Jia Quan was already behind him to help him. After the fire was lit in the cave, it gradually became much warmer. Hu Jiao asked Xu Qingjia to turn around, while she took off her wet clothes.
Inadvertently glanced at the graceful figure projected by the stone wall, Xu Qingjia quickly retracted his gaze and suppressed the restlessness in his heart. Coincidentally, Brother Aniu suddenly appeared at the entrance of the cave, Xu Qingjia rushed over and hugged Hu Jiao, blocking Brother Aniu’s prying sight, and Hu Jiao picked up the stone and threw it out of the cave.
That night, Hu Jiao was escorted by Xu Qingjia and Brother Aniu and finally returned home safely, but she angrily drove away Brother Aniu and dragged Xu Qingjia through the door into the hospital. The next day, when Hu Jiao was fiddling with her wedding dress, she found Hu Tingzhi, who was stumbling at the door, with a bag in her hand, as if she had something to give.
Hu Tingzhi took out a dark green wedding dress. Although the style was old and the embroidery was rough, it was the wedding dress that Mother Hu wore when she married Hu Tingzhi. So when Hu Jiao heard her father’s emotion, her expression became solemn, and she finally decided to wear this wedding dress to marry.
On the other side, Xu Qingjia thought of the agreement between him and Hu Jiao in the cave, so he wrote a book of reconciliation to make an appointment three years later. Originally, Heli Shu was going to be hidden in a brocade box, but after thinking about it for fear of being discovered, he hid it in the umbrella handle. But at this time, I noticed that there was someone outside the door, and when I opened the door, nothing was different, so I didn’t take it to heart.
In the blink of an eye, it was the wedding day, and the Hu family invited all relatives and friends, including Jia Quan, to come to celebrate. Since the bride needs to be the mistress of the house to order flowers for her to leave the cabinet, considering the early death of Hu’s mother, it falls on Hu Tingzhi. Hu Jiao looked at her father carefully and felt sad for no reason. If she hadn’t taken this opportunity, she would not have noticed that her father had aged so much.
At the banquet, Jia Quan looked for an opportunity to chat with Xu Qingjia, not believing that he could be so high-spirited and willing to give up a better future and return to his hometown to marry an ordinary woman. Jia Quan guessed Xu Qingjia’s intention. The reason why he insisted on going back to his hometown to marry Hu Jiao would have a good reputation of not forgetting his heart.
Therefore, Jia Quan reminded Xu Qingjia that his behavior was to push himself into a dangerous road. Originally, Prime Minister Jia fell in love with Xu Qingjia and intended to betrothed his little daughter to Xu Qingjia. Unexpectedly, Xu Qingjia was ignorant of praise and insisted on returning to his hometown to marry Hu Jiao. His behavior may be hated by Prime Minister Jia, and it will also implicate the Hu family. Even if he gains a good reputation for not forgetting his heart, it is just a good talk, and it will not be of much help to his career.
The banquet was being held outside, and no one noticed that a man in black sneaked into the wedding room and was about to take away the book of Heli from the umbrella handle, when Hu Jiao walked in, so scared that he hurriedly took the umbrella and hid. When Hu Jiao found the umbrella in the corner, she couldn’t understand it. When she was looking at it carefully, she saw Xu Qingjia coming in from the door again, and she was relieved to see that the book He Li in the handle of the umbrella was not lost.
Xu Qingjia said that when she was drinking with Jia Quan just now, it was already seen by the other party that it was a fake marriage. Hu Jiao heard that the matter was about to be revealed, and her heart tensed immediately. But even if Jia Quan had doubts, he couldn’t find any real evidence. Xu Qingjia comforted Hu Jiao not to be nervous. The man in black wanted to take the opportunity to slip away, but he didn’t expect Anniu and the others to call for a bridal chamber, so he had to retreat and wait for the opportunity.
