|报恩||bào ēn||to repay a debt to someone|
|说不出来||shuō bu chūlai||to be unable to speak|
Bái Sùzhēn lái huán yǔsǎn ，tā xīnli tūrán yǒu yīzhǒng fēicháng tèbié de gǎnjué 。tā yuánlái xiǎng jiàgěi Xǔ Xiān jiùshì wèile bào ēn ，dàn xiànzài juéde bù zhǐshì bào ēn 。yěxǔ zhèzhǒng gǎnjué jiùshì “ài ”ba 。Xǔ Xiān yě shì dì yī cì àishàng yī gè gūniang ，tā jǐnzhāng de huà dōu shuō bu chūlai 。
Bai Suzhen came to return the umbrella, and her heart was suddenly filled with a strange emotion. Originally, she wanted to marry Xu Xian in order to repay him, but now she felt it wasn't only for the sake of paying him back. Perhaps this kind of emotion could be called “love”. Xu Xian also felt love for the girl for the first time. He felt so nervous that he was unable to speak.
yǔsǎn shì tāmen de dà méirén ，Bái Sùzhēn hé Xǔ Xiān kāishǐ liàn\\'ài le 。Xǔ Xiān fùmǔshuāngwáng ，zhǐyǒu jiějie jiěfu 。jiějie jiěfu kàndào Xǔ Xiān jiāo le zhème piàoliang de nǚpéngyou ，yě fēicháng gāoxìng 。yóu jiějie jiěfu zuòzhǔ ，tāmen hěn kuài jiéhūn le 。
The umbrella was their matchmaker, and Bai Suzhen and Xu Xian began to fall in love. Xu Xian's father and mother were both deceased. There was only his older sister and her husband. When his older sister and her husband saw that Xu Xian had found such a beautiful girlfriend, they were also extremely happy. His older sister and her husband decided they should be married soon.
hūnhòu fūqī èr rén kāi le yī jiā zhěnsuǒ ，Xǔ Xiān yīshù gāomíng ，Bái Sùzhēn yě jīngcháng qiāoqiāo shī fǎshù jiùrén 。tāmen hěn ēn ài ，shēnghuó xìngfú ，shēngyì yě fēicháng hǎo 。
After they were married, the newlyweds opened a clinic. Xu Xian's medical skill was astounding, and Bai Suzhen often secretly used her magic to save lives. They were passionately in love, their lives were blessed, and business was excellent.
ránér hǎojǐngbùcháng ，yī gè míngjiào Fǎ Hǎi de fǎshī fāxiàn yǒu shéyāo tōutōu pǎodào rénjiān ，bìng jiàgěi le rénlèi 。tā jué bù néng yǔnxǔ zhèyàng de shìqing fāshēng ，jiù mǎshàng qù zhuīchá 。jiéguǒ Fǎ Hǎi hái fāxiàn zhè ge shéyāo jiùshì jǐbǎinián qián tōu le zìjǐ xiāndān de nàge shéyāo 。yīnwèi Bái Sùzhēn tōu le xiāndān ，FǎHǎi duō xiūliàn le jǐ bǎi nián cái yǒu le jīntiān de fǎshù 。Fǎ Hǎi fāshì ，yīdìng yào shōufú zhè ge shéyāo ！
However, good times don't last long. A priest named Fa Hai discovered that a snake spirit had found its way into the human world and married a human. He refused to allow this kind of thing to happen, so he quickly went to investigate. In the end, Fa Hai discovered that this snake spirit was the same snake spirit that had stolen his pill of life hundreds of years ago. Because Bai Suzhen had stolen his pill of life, Fa Hai had to practice spiritual enlightenment for another several hundred years to obtain his current magic. Fa Hai swore an oath to take revenge against this snake spirit.
