A Case of Misadventure
During the Tongzhi period of the Qing Dynasty, Hong Kong was ceded to the British. The border between Guangzhou and Ninety-two places was connected, but on the one hand, it talked about the laws of the Qing Dynasty, and on the other hand, it talked about British law. The common people, though the same as the Chinese people, have different customs of livelihood. Guangzhou Chen Daxi (Xiwai) is a famous teacher, Chen Mengji's inner grandson. He is wise in nature and has a family background. If he is willing to accept family training, he should also be a famous teacher. He is helpless and happy. He is relaxed and carefree. He is not careful about anything. However, he is highly respected by Guangzhou people because of his grandfather's prestige. With loyal housekeeper Wu three provinces behind the hard work, Chen Jiasheng, only reluctantly maintained, in fact, is only a shell. Daliang Daihuan (Huanjie), shrewd Bala, had a marriage contract with his fellow countryman Luobo since childhood. Later, Luobo went out to work. After many years, sisters in the village married one after another, but Daihuan remained silent, so that Bianmei had passed. Fortunately, when Dai Huan's dream came true, Bo was involved in a murder case involving murder and overtaking of goods. He was arrested and imprisoned and shouted for wrongdoing. Dai Huan saved his husband's heart, and when he heard that Chen Mengji's grandson, Chen Daxi, was the most famous trainer in Guangzhou City, he knelt at Chen's door and knocked for help. Although the three provinces of Wu saw Dai Huan pitifully, they knew that they were overjoyed and could not help him. So they left Dai Huan many difficulties and forced him to retreat. They said that Dai Huan had to take out three hundred and two to help him. Dai Huan naturally did not have such a huge amount of money, but there is no way out. Dai Huan happened to meet his fellow countrymen and sisters and introduced him to Causeway Bay to work as a household worker. The wages are just the same. Dai Huan was eager to save his husband. He didn't know that Causeway Bay was far away from Hong Kong. He thought it was just near Liwan in Guangzhou, and he signed his name at all costs. Dai Huan came to the door with three hundred and two doors. Da Xie and the three provinces were naturally foolish. When he did not know how to refuse, Da Xie accepted it with one hand and promised to fight a lawsuit for Bo Shang Court. Because these three hundred and twelve are just the feet of a peaceful gentleman who is in great need of coming to Hong Kong!,Originally, the Chen family had a family relationship. It was Rong Decheng, a well-known family in Guangzhou. Sometimes in Chengnian, he committed a lawsuit and was saved by Mengji. In order to repay his kindness, he married his newly born daughter (Rong Rong) and promised it to Sun Daxi of Mengji. In childhood, Rong Rong and Daxi often played together. When Rong Rong saw that Daxi was intelligent and intelligent, he worshipped Daxi very much. He had decided to marry Daxi, but Daxi only regarded Rong as his little sister and did not take marriage into account. With the passing of time, Chen's family has declined. On the contrary, Rongjia's business has grown bigger and bigger, especially in Hong Kong, and become a tycoon of Fujia Xiangjiang. However, although Jong Decheng's business is large, he has no choice but to be rich but not expensive, rich and nameless, so he tries to use his money in Hong Kong. If he wants Chen Daxi, his future son-in-law, to become a gentleman of peace, he will be rich and prosperous, which will greatly contribute to his career in Hong Kong. Dai Huan, who happened to meet Dai Huan in the absence of water feet, took the risk of taking the lawsuit. But he did not know how to deal with it. He saw the potential to ride a tiger. Fortunately, his loyal servant Wu three provinces had been following Mengji for many years, and had been impressed by his ears and eyes, and pointed out secretly. In addition to the prestige of Meng Gu, the county officials were frightened and suffocated on the court. The case of Luobo seemed to have a turning point, and Dai Huan was lucky to encounter this noble case. As a result, people are more happy to rub their teeth and exaggerate. Unexpectedly, they expose their falsehood and ignorance. As a result, the lawsuit went straight down. The only way for the three provinces of Wu to do so was to seek a lighter sentence from the county magistrate with Chen Mengji's friendship, so that Luobo was exempted from the death penalty. Dai Huan saw Luo Po convicted of crime and hated Daxi. He was looking for Daxi to settle accounts. He found that Daxi had slipped away to avoid debts and sailed to Hong Kong to become a Taiping gentleman. Dai Huan knew that Causeway Bay was far away from Hong Kong, but he could not regret it. He said goodbye to Luobo in prison and went to Hong Kong to be a Yujie. So-called is not that friends do not gather, happy to live in a big house in Hong Kong as a Taiping gentleman, eating alone not accustomed to Hong Kong cuisine, to eat authentic home cuisine, high salary hired a big Liangyu sister, this person is Huanjie! Dai Huan met with his enemies and kept making fun of them. Later, Dai Huan discovered the cases left by Chen Mengji in Chen's family. He learned that there were many doubts in Luobo's case and asked Daxi to return to Guangzhou to appeal. However, Da Huan longed for the position of Taiping Gentleman and did not want to return to his hometown to pay his debts. Of course, he refused to follow him. He was very happy and knew himself well that he might not succeed in appealing and refused to make all kinds of excuses. Dai Huan thought about countermeasures. Thus, new hatred and old hatred came together, and the loser met his sister Bala Qiaoyu, and a happy relationship with his enemies began from then on.,On the other hand, Daxi is not at ease in Hong Kong, because Rong Rong is often obsessed with Daxi, which makes him worried. He even wants to leave his home and avoid being kept under the fence. Wu advises Daxi to endure the calm wind and waves for a while. When he likes learning and succeeds one day, he returns home together to revive the reputation of Chen's family. Daxi likes to stay and walk. Rong Rong was spoiled and harsh by people. However, he was naturally straightforward and had a strong sense of justice. When he saw something unfair, he would oppose the demonstration and hope to improve the social atmosphere. Therefore, many times, Rong Rong ordered the green captain Wulong to help him, which made Wulong confused. Wulong is wise in appearance, but obeys Rong Rong because Wulong has been secretly in love with Rong Rong, but dare not express to him. When Daxi became a Gentleman of Daping, when Rong Rong was entangled and could not get away from him, he would use his power to order Wulong to clean up the mess. Wulong could not disobey Daxi's love enemy, but could not disobey the order of Taiping Gentleman. He could only do so, but he would make Rong Rong dissatisfied and find Wulong to be angry, which made Wulong hate Daxi more and more.
