Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances (龙飞凤舞) – Chapter 14

Evida's Indo Romance

The Hopelessly Muddled Mrs. Long San

Long San didn’t say anything for a long time, he looked over the room, then called Xiao Qing over: “Who has come to Furen’s place in the last few days?”

Seeing Long San’s expression, Xiao Qing was somewhat nervous: “There wasn’t really anyone, only Yu Mama comes over from time to time, Doctor Chen came to check her illness, there’s also the servant who brings the meals, otherwise, it would be two days ago Xia Er came over to deliver a new handkerchief.” Xiao Qing paused, and then added: “It was a new handkerchief from each courtyard.”

When Xia Er’s name came up, Feng Ning‘s heart stirred, could it be that the one who took the silk rope was also her? Long San’s countenance was normal, but he told Xiao Qing to tell the servants to prepare hot water, explaining that Feng Ning had…

Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances (龙飞凤舞) – Chapter 13

Evida's Indo Romance

Hi everyone, here’s a new chapter of Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances (龙飞凤舞)! I realize everyone is very intrigued with the mystery, and I thought I might give a clue that the title of the book is a big hint in of itself, and if you figure it out, kudos to you! I won’t go any deeper as it would ruin the mystery for everyone, and I’m sure no one wants that. I do have to mention that I haven’t actually finished the novel yet, so I don’t know the details of the unraveled mystery, but I read far enough to figure out the general scheme.

Anyway, I would love to still send my translations out by Saturday, but as Ramadan has started, it’s been tough to juggle fasting, working, and school work, on top of translating; and working on an empty stomach and dry throat is not exactly pleasant. So…

Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances (龙飞凤舞) – Chapter 12

Evida's Indo Romance


Hi everyone, I’m sorry for the late releases, I’m sure Evida’s pulling her hair out trying to keep up with the schedule as I turn in late translations. I’ll try to figure something out, but for now, please be patient!

I also have to apologize about a mistake I did in translation in the last chapter when Feng Ning insults Long San. It’s actually a phrase in Chinese that I did not recognize, so I wrote it more literally, but it actually goes more along the lines of a ‘wasteful squanderer’. Basically someone who doesn’t bother with house affairs and likes to extravagantly waste money. (The line I’m talking about is when she insults him and then kicks him.)

This chapter reminded me of why I was so frustrated with Long San at the start, though he’s not even half as bad as Long Er in Three Marriages, but I…

Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances (龙飞凤舞) – Chapter 11

Evida's Indo Romance


Feng Ning is burdened with angst and guilt, but still striving to solve the mystery of her past. A lot of questions and self doubt begin to arise from her recent discovery. Hidden thoughts and an outburst that may well be a signs of  her blooming emotions.

The Mrs. Long San Who Unreasonably Makes a Scene to Vent

The rope’s thickness and color was indeed the same as the one she saw in Long San’s room that day. Feng Ning stared at those threads as if she saw a ghost, her heart beating wildly.

She couldn’t have, how could she have been capable of doing this kind of thing? But those silk ropes were undeniably vivid, very clearly right before her eyes, so many ropes, and all of them weaved into that fancy knot, seemingly the result of practice.

Feng Ning’s legs in a moment went weak, falling onto the chair. How could…

Karma: I’m sorry for the late update everyone, hopefully I’ll be getting back on schedule starting next week!

Afaasun: Well on the bright side, we get to read the 2 stories in one day, thanks for the great effort Karma………

In this chapter, Long San struggles with keeping his proximity with Feng Ning, while Feng Ning discovers new things about the past, and becomes one step closer to the truth.


Mrs. Long San Finds a Clue

Long San glared at Feng Ning, and Feng Ning glared back.

Long San said: “Do you actually still want to listen? ”

“I do. ” She replied grinding her teeth.

Long San was just about to continue speaking, when Feng Ning interrupted again and asked, “Then did my swine husband sleep in the same room as you afterwards?”

“Feng Ning! “Long San cried.

Feng Ning swiftly stood up and loudly said: “Why don’t you…

Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances (龙飞凤舞) – Chapter 9

Evida's Indo Romance

Hi! I didn’t introduce myself in the last chapter, but I’m karma who will be collaborating in translating Dragon Flies Phoenix Dances with Evida! I have to praise her for doing such a great job with translating even without knowing how to read or speak Chinese, and I also want to thank her for letting me join the project! Aside from that, I also wanted to give a disclaimer that my Chinese is not perfect as I’m an American born Chinese and have only ever visited China once for a very brief period, so my Chinese is limited, as I do not know a lot of terms and phrases (and Chinese love their phrases), especially when it comes to ancient Chinese novels (AKA Classical Chinese). I only knew very basic colloquial spoken Mandarin Chinese and didn’t actually know how to write or read anything except the simplest of words until…

Evida's Indo Romance


Starting this week, we have Karma editing the translation, but she’s actually a native speaker, so we are lucky to have footnotes to the chapter. We are going to collaborate on this project, hopefully this will increase the fun.

The picture has nothing to do with this chapter (bummer!), albeit they’re getting there, this is Long San and Feng Ning being lovey dovey in my imagination.

So, our couple are getting to know each other, and even being partners in “crime”. They are so cute together………

Mrs. Long San the Hired Assassin

Long San followed Feng Ning running all the way out the door, Feng Ning suddenly said, “Oops, I do not need to run, I have a patron. “ Long San replied:” Food heist patron? That is definitely not me. ”

Feng Ning grumpily glared at him, Long San said: ” A patron for buying something to eat, that…
