Chapter 7 – AA is Also Fine?

Previously, the show team of “Four Seasons Food” had also invited Qiu Jin to the variety show, but Qiu Jin looked down his nose on it. Not only did he refuse the invite, he also ridiculed it as a “digging earth variety show” on his Weibo, setting off a burst of foul wind and bloody rain*.

[*T/N: foul wind and bloody rain = figurative speech, in this case for “a toxic environment.”]

Now he was anxious to get on that show, it was practically like hitting himself in the face.

Qiu Jin: “I want to temper my willpower.”

Qiu Yuqin snorted: “You think I’ll believe that?”

Qiu Jin scratched his head and said with an embarrassed tone: “You also know that I have a lot of black powder now, so I want to participate in variety shows to brush up my level of favorable impression.”

This was not a lie, but the even more important reason was that he was envious of the lifestyle on the “Four Seasons Food” show, making three meals a day with his own hands and watching the clouds gradually fading in the sky. This reminded him of his days with his grandpa when he was a child. That was a big part of his childhood memories.

Qin Yuqin was persuaded. His younger brother was indeed too stupid. It would be good to wash his image clean through variety shows. What’s more, going to that kind of backcountry place was also a kind of tempering for people, so he agreed to this request.

However, in less than ten minutes, Qiu Yuqin’s life-threatening phone call came once again. He screamed into the phone: “Are you going because of Xiang Xi?!”

Qiu Jin spread his hands, helpless. “I really don’t like Xiang Xi anymore.”

Qiu Yuqin: “Don’t tell me you started liking Ji Shenxiao?!!”

Qiu Jin almost spit out a mouthful of blood: “Where did you hear that?”

“Then why did you steal his underpants?”

Qiu Jin: “…”

“How did you find out? Did Liu Wei tattle?”

“I don’t need someone to tell me, the whole Internet knows about all the stupid things you do!”

Qiu Jin took a look on the Internet. Sure enough, a topic called #Qiu Jin seduces Ji Shenxiao# was constantly being brought up. They said he dived into Ji Shenxiao’s private pool and was thrown out. In just a couple of minutes after release, the topic rose to the twenty-second hottest search, and the discussion continued to spread.

There was a picture attached and it showed Ji Shenxiao’s noble and aloof person walking pass Qiu Jin, and Qiu Jin was lying on the ground with a shocked expression.

[What kind of crazy day is today?! I can’t even eat my melon!]

[The f*ck, is Qiu Jin crazy? Isn’t he an alpha? Alphas are also fine?]

[Is upstairs discriminating against alphas? I heard that alphas are tighter there.]

[Tighten your *, why don’t you try ** and see if it’s tight or not!]

[No need to speak profanity, okay? Do you want Weibo to be censored? Why do I feel emotionally touched? “I can’t catch you, so I will take the man you like?”]

[Touch a fart. If it were you would you like it? Light a candle for Xiang Xi. Light a candle for Ji Shenxiao.]

(*T/N: Light a candle for someone = to pray for someone)

[He provoked Ji Shenxiao, tsk tsk…]

[Real talk here; if I could hook up with Ji Shenxiao, I wouldn’t want Xiang Xi anymore.]

[Ji Shenxiao’s appearance and family background are not accessible to ordinary people. If you were to see him, wouldn’t you be tempted? No need to talk about how he is born from a rich and powerful family, he is also a graduate of Oxford. While other rich second generation children are playing with cars and models, he had already shouldered the family’s heavy responsibilities.]

[The key point is he’s handsome, ah. How many celebrities would be eclipsed if they were to stand next to him? Do you guys still remember the entertainment section of the Beijing Economic Forum? When President Ji took his company’s actor up onto stage, the alpha named Wen Mojia, reportedly it was to take the title of sexiest alpha in the entertainment circle from Qiu Jin, instead, he was completely outshined. Everyone was looking at President Ji.]

[If Ji Shenxiao were to make his debut (as a performing artist), he would pull up the percentage point.]

[Dream on. As if Ji Shenxiao is going to debut.]

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

[Aren’t Miss Dong and Lei Busi also serving as ambassadors for their companies? Why is Ji Shenxiao impossible?]

[Everyone upstairs, I admit that Qiu Jin was expelled from the seat of sexiest alpha, but who does Wen Mojia think he is? He only made it by copying Qiu Jin.]

[Qiu Jin is so stupid, how are there still fans?]

……

The Internet was turned on its head, the topic of #Qiu Jin, Xiang Xi, Ji Shenxiao# also began to rise rapidly when the peanut gallery* started chipping in their two cents.

[*T/N: 吃瓜群众 chi gua qun zhong: peanut gallery, especially those in online forums / onlookers who are interested in the spectacle but don’t have anything knowledgeable to say about it. Word coined in 2016.]

Qiu Jin looked over it a few times and then withdrew his gaze.

His voice was still calm: “They’re writing without basis.”

Qiu Yuqin: “But you…”

“Brother, you can rest assured,” Qiu Jin interrupted him. “If I like Ji Shenxiao or Xiang Xi, I will quit the entertainment circle!”

T/N: Sorry this was a bit late. Long day at work, came home, clonked out, woke up to post this, and then I’m going back to sleep. 😴

Chapter 6 – AA is Also Fine?

For this reason, Yang Chi had endless regrets, but what could he do? This was a child that he debuted himself. He could only hope that the other person would pull himself together. He didn’t know if Qiu Jin was asking about real fans right now, because he had received some psychological shock.

“Only one million true fans?” Qiu Jin was stunned. “Weibo shows that I have ten million fans!”

“It’s not like you don’t know, you bought all those.”

“What about the interaction? Thousands of people like it every time!”

“That can also be operated…”

After a moment of silence, Qiu Jin said mutely: “…Being my agent, it was really hard for you.”

Such an ironic sentence almost made Yang Chi want to cry on the spot.

Clack clack clack.

With the Bluetooth headset hung around his neck, Qiu Jin’s slender fingers tapped on the keyboard. In but an instant, Qiu Jin immediately cleared a wave of trash fans in the background of Weibo, and the fan count instantly dropped by millions.

Translations are by vmnovels [dot] com, if you’re reading this anywhere else, then it was stolen.

Then he said to Yang Chi: “Let’s stop the follow up defense on Weibo.”

Yang Chi got all wound up in a flash, “What’s wrong with you? You’re not taking things too hard* are you?!”

[*T/N: taking things too hard – usually implies suicidal thoughts.]

“Taking things too hard?” Qiu Jin looked at the comments on his Weibo and smiled faintly. “I never cared for this false prosperity.”

Falling from a high place, but intentionally deceiving himself with a bunch of false data made no sense to him. He wanted fans, yes, but he wanted them to come back willingly.

Three lifetimes spent in the entertainment circle. Qiu Jin naturally knew that the most important thing for fans was for the performer to be outstanding. As long as he became even better in the future, he did not have to worry about not having fans.

Moreover, he remembered that in the novel there was a plotline about the media digging up dirt on the celebrities’ false data. Qiu Jin would be dragged out as the whipping horse. Over ten million Weibo fans reduced to 990,000 fans in a flash. This angered the original host so much that he almost had a heart attack.

He had just hung up on the phone with his agent when he received a call from Qiu Yuqin.

This was the original host’s blood-related older brother. He was the boss of an electronic technology company. He had an irascible temper, but he doted on his younger brother very much. He defended the original host all the way up until the very end.

It was a pity that although the Qiu family could be considered rich and powerful, they still could not compare to Ji Shenxiao’s existence. Not to mention there was that vicious and merciless alpha that was a follower of the protagonist shou, Xiang Xi. As it happened, Qiu Jin insisted on running crazily on the road that courted disaster. No matter how the Qiu family struggled, they would only end up ruined and destitute.

“Qiu Jin!”

There was a lion’s roar as soon as the phone call connected.

“Are you crazy? Even if you’re chasing after Xiang Xi, why must you mess with Ji Shenxiao? What is Ji Shenxiao’s identity? Is it someone we can afford to mess with? If you provoke him again next time, I will not be your brother anymore!”

Qiu Yuqin’s voice was as loud as a loudspeaker. Qiu Jin had to hold the phone far away from his ear. After Qiu Yuqin finished scolding him, he brought the phone back to his ear and said lightly, “I understand.”

“You understand fart!” The Lion Roar Divine Skill activated again. Qiu Jin squinted his left eye and took the phone away again. A tinny voice came from the receiver: “If you understand, then don’t provoke him! And you even wanted to compare… compare that with him…!”

That’s right, who was Ji Shenxiao?

Out of all the characters in the novel, he was the most illustrious of birth, had the highest social status, had the most outstanding appearance, and was the most, most, most eminent and unapproachable peak of existence.

His ability to pass on his lineage was even more remarkable. The novel said that his ejaculation time was as long as one minute, which was enough to make any omega conceive.

Qiu Jin wanted to compare sizes with him. It was not only moronic, but the more important thing was that wasn’t he seeking his own humiliation? He was simply sending himself to the front door for the protagonist to slap him in the face.

However, Qiu Jin remembered that Xiang Xi and Ji Shenxiao have not yet developed a relationship. Their relationship storyline officially started during the variety show “Four Seasons Food.”

Recalling the variety show, it kindled an interest in Qiu Jin, and he said with a good voice: “Brother, I know I was wrong. I will never provoke them in the future. I’m turning over a new leaf and focusing on work!”

“You still know how to focus on work?” How could Qiu Yuqin not understand his little abacus*? He grumbled, “Speak, what resources do you want now?”

[*T/N: his little abacus – the calculations and plans within his heart]

Qiu Jin: “Brother, can you let me participate in “Four Seasons Food?””

Qiu Yuqin frowned: “Didn’t you say that was a digging earth variety show before?”

Qiu Jin: “…”

“Four Seasons Food” was a slow-living rural variety show. There were usually four to six participating guests. They have to live in the countryside, eat food, and till the land. In an era of increasing urban pressure, this show grabbed the hearts of the audience at once, and after three years it became a trump card variety show.

Chapter 5 – AA is Also Fine?

When Xiang Xi debuted, the public face he wore was cold and cheerless. No matter who saw this face, they would be hoodwinked by the other person’s outer appearance. He was an aloof beauty, the kind that gave people a sense of distance. An immortal aura seemed to float around him, as if he were above the common populace.

But in actuality, in private Xiang Xi had a very explosive temperament. He was frank and outspoken, and he had a sharp tongue. Don’t know how many times his manager withheld his cell phone from him.

Qiu Jin’s shameless big talk stepped on his bottom line again and again. This time it was really unbearable, so Xiang Xi cursed him out. Unexpectedly, some shameless person recorded a video, and now everyone on Weibo knew that he lost control of his public persona.

Translations are by vmnovels [dot] com, if you’re reading this anywhere else, then it was stolen.

Xiang Xi crazily attacked the pillow in his arms. If it were Qiu Jin in place of that pillow, then his head would already be taken down.

“Forbearance. How about you calm down a bit? Qiu Jin is purposely nauseating you. Don’t take him seriously. It would not be good if you wreck your health with anger.” The assistant handed him a tissue, trying to soothe him in a mild tone.

“Scram!” Xiang Xi picked up whatever thing was close at hand and hurled it over. “Don’t let me hear that name again. He and I cannot exist together*!”

[*T/N: “He and I cannot exist together” means to have irreconcilable differences or incompatible standpoints.]

The drinking glass smashed onto the floor with a great sound. Xiang Xi panted for air. His face was red with anger.

Getting angry that his public persona collapsed was one thing, but what he could not stand even more was having people binding him and Qiu Jin together.

He was such a clean and self-respecting omega, but against all reason and of all people, his name was bound to Qiu Jin that scum of society.

Whenever someone brought up Xiang Xi, another person would say, “Oh, he’s the omega that Qiu Jin is pursuing madly, right?” And then the topic of conversation would change to Qiu Jin. He was shameless, sure, but he was highly recognizable. Everyone could remember his flirty operations!

Support the translator. Read this on vmnovels (dot) com

The assistant comforted: “Don’t worry, just wait until you start to shoot “Four Seasons Food.” Then you won’t be seeing him for two months.”

Xiang Xi held a stuffed animal, seething. He said, “It best be like that!”

“Moreover, I heard that this time President Ji is also going. When the time comes, you can develop a good relationship with Ji Shenxiao and catch him. Then would you still have to be afraid of Qiu Jin embarrassing you?”

“Who want to catch Ji Shenxiao? I hate that type of popsicle the most!”

Assistant: “Then why did you say you like him?”

Xiang Xi, with a matter-of-course expression on his face, said: “Ji Shenxiao is so powerful. I just casually mentioned his name to make Qiu Jin feel inferior!”

Assistant: “…”

By the time Qiu Jin came home and looked at Weibo, there were words scolding and cursing him out everywhere. Even though Qiu Jin has seen lots of foul wind and bloody rain online before, to see a screen full of verbal abuse and even a photoshopped picture of his deceased photo, it still made him feel somewhat upset.

Fortunately, amongst all the black words scolding him there was still a ray of light, for example this line that said:

[How about you curb your black powder? Back then when Qiu Jin was being hyped to the skies, why didn’t you guys say anything? Now there’s a spark of fire* and you want to kick Brother Qiu Jin away with one leg? Us Qiu fans raise one hundred dislikes!]

[*T/N: Can also mean get angry.]

Qiu Jin immediately read this sentence to his agent, Yang Chi: “I didn’t expect this papa to actually have real fans.”

Yang Chi wanted to say something but hesitated for a long time before saying, “This is our staff member…”

This time it was Qiu Jin who was silent.

He clicked on his Weibo homepage and asked, “Then how many real fans do I still have?”

Yang Chi: “This… estimated to be one million perhaps.”

What he didn’t say was that one third was estimated to have come for the show, and one third of them came to scold him. As for the fans that really liked him, they stopped being his fans after he became a greasy toxic alpha man.

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

Of all the people that Yang Chi debuted, Qiu Jin was the one with the best results. No matter how muddled he has become now, he still left a deep impression on him.

When Qiu Jin made his first public appearance as a performer, he was still a fresh and clean handsome youngster. He was pure and desirable.

A famous scene of his popularity was on the basketball court. After scoring a three-pointer shot that won the game, the sixteen-year-old Qiu Jin lifted his shirt to wipe his face, revealing nice abdominal muscles.

The fans went crazy and wild for him. They banged on the Great Wall for him, wanting to offer up their lives for him.

Unfortunately, don’t know when but the child that they cupped preciously in their palms changed into a bum beetle* for Xiang Xi.

[*T/N: someone who tags along behind someone else like a shadow]

His entire person went through a huge change, becoming sickening and stupid. He was no longer the refreshing mountain wind of before.

Chapter 4 – AA is Also Fine?

[T/N: The raws often shorten alpha and omega to A and O. So AA would be alpha x alpha.]

Although the original host got himself into quite the quagmire, he was still once at the apex of the entertainment circle.

Qiu Jin made his debut at the age of 16. At the age of 18, relying his high-quality appearance and his well off family background, he hit the big time in the entertainment circle. At that time, Xiang Xi was just some nobody who had just entered the circle.

The two of them worked together on a traveling variety show and baited the audience as a couple. One side was trying to hype up the show, but the other side caught feelings. After this, Qiu Jin started to unrelentingly pursue the other. He was simply the poster child for shamate*, his actions were lowbrow and without taste.

[*T/N: 杀马特 sha ma te – Chinese subculture of young urban migrants, usually of low education, with exaggerated hairstyles, heavy make-up, flamboyant costumes, piercings, etc. A loanword from “smart.”]

On Xiang Xi’s birthday, he sent him a luxury car. Not only did he gifted him such a heavy present, he also flooded his Moments* with messages, and at Xiang Xi’s concert, he rushed up on stage to offer him a kiss, making Xiang Xi turn green in the face.

[*T/N: Moments – social networking function of smartphone app WeChat]

Translations are by vmnovels [dot] com, if you’re reading this anywhere else, then it was stolen.

After his confession was rejected, he stated publicly on Weibo*: “Little Kitty, you can’t escape from the palm of my hand.”

[*T/N: Weibo – microblogging]

Not only this, he also sent a large-scale photo of himself @ Xiang Xi, and bluntly said: “Omega, are you satisfied with what you see?”

[T/N: 又发自己的大尺度照片艾特项希 I’m a little uncertain of this sentence. I can’t figure out if Qiu Jin sent a “large-scale photo of himself” or if he straight up just sent a “d*ck pic.” The symbol @ was written in the raws (艾特 ai te = at symbol, @), which makes me think that it’s a digital photo, so “large-scale photo” didn’t make sense to me, unless the author meant “high-resolution photo,” which I doubt… Either way, it’s an unsolicited photo. So, poor Xiang Xi.]

For goodness sake! What kind of incomparable weirdo was this?

Qiu Jin scrolled through those Weibo posts and was almost embarrassed to death.

Because of this, Qiu Jin became the biggest laughing stock in the entertainment circle of this century. His excessive harassment of Xiang Xi was so extreme that “ABO Daily” newspaper criticized him by name. His style of doing things was terrible, polluting the entertainment circle’s ecology, and he was on the edge of being shut out.

His family dearly wished to sever ties with him. There was no need to mention the pitiful Xiang Xi, his fans were already all outraged on his behalf, cawing out like crows: just what kind of sin did our child commit, to have such a greasy* badaozongcai** take a fancy to him?

[*T/N: greasy = sickening / disgusting / nauseating / too much / over the top / overwhelming]

[**T/N: 霸道总裁 ba dao zong cai: handsome high-powered businessman (a type of character in an eponymous genre of romantic fiction who typically has a soft spot for a girl of lower social status), i.e. Tsukasa Doumyouji from “Boys Over Flowers”]

He had the title of ex-sexiest alpha in the entertainment circle, but he personally wrecked this good card with his own hands.

As for why there’s an “ex” in front, that’s because he was too greasy. Due to his various lowbrow behaviors, he was expelled from the ranks of “sexiest alpha” by the fans.

Qiu Jin looked at his selfie on Weibo. His shirt was half opened, and he was winking and smiling charmingly at the camera…

[T/N: This selfie might be the photo he had sent to Xiang Xi…]

This expression of rapture, this posture brimming with enticement… Exactly how the hell did he use such proper facial features to make such a greasy expression?

If he were Xiang Xi, he also would not want himself, okay?

You have to know, this face of his, in his original world he had used it to craft a cold and cheerless public persona. After he transmigrated and became an omega, he was even more aloof, portraying the appearance of someone not open to playful disrespect.

…Aye, let’s not think about this anymore. The more he thought about this, the angrier he got.

Support the translator. Read this on vmnovels (dot) com

Qiu Jin originally wanted to delete those pictures, but when he saw those photos, his movements suddenly stopped.

The once paper man became vivid and lifelike. He could not bear to do it. These were the vestiges of someone who had once lived.

In the end, Qiu Jin still failed to delete those photos. A black history was also very good.

Don’t forget past events, for they can guide you in future.

As soon as he got home, his agent called in.

The agent didn’t know that he went to compare d*ck sizes with Ji Shenxiao. He only knew that Qiu Jin performed a strong kabedon on Xiang Xi, was beaten and scolded, and someone had even filmed a short video and posted it online.

Before Qiu Jin transmigrated over, the Film Emperor under Ji Shenxian’s movie and television company was holding a birthday banquet at a hotel. He invited all the big name people within the entertainment circle.

In the book, this was a stage for promoting the leading roles’ affections for each other. Naturally Ji Shenxiao and Xiang Xi would show their faces at this event.

Don’t know how, but Qiu Jin also got in there. He followed Xiang Xi for a long time and finally found an opportunity to block Xiang Xi in front of the washroom door, to once again madly declare his love.

Xiang Xi was so annoyed. Under these intolerable circumstances, he made offensive remarks to the previous eighteen generations of Qiu Jin’s ancestors. He also bluntly said that the person he liked was Ji Shenxiao, and that Qiu Jin, this sum man, should just give up already.

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

This was the first time that the original host heard that Xiang Xi liked someone else. Qiu Jin was furious and he followed Ji Shenxiao to the open-air swimming pool. He was the sexiest alpha in the entertainment circle. He wanted to see just what was so great about Ji Shenxiao!

While Qiu Jin was comparing sizes with Ji Shenxiao, Xiang Xi had broken his little immortal* omega public persona and there were already several lead stories about it on the net.

[*T/N: “immortal” as in a fairy or deity, a heavenly or celestial being]

#Xiang Xi’s public persona collapsed#

#Xiang Xi screaming profanity#

#Xiang Xi’s explosive confession of love for Ji Shenxiao#

#Qiu Jin has no sense of shame#

Qiu Jin’s shamelessness was already commonplace by now. The key point this time was that Xiang Xi’s public person collapsed in one night, and the whole network was shocked.

[My gosh! Xiang Xi actually has such a dirty mouth? Where did he learn those words?]

[Zu’an Stage. If you have the guts then come and fight me.]

[Zu’an, your mother. His little immortal omega image has collapsed. You still don’t want to admit it?]

[So what if he was cursing? Laozi immortal fairy will curse you! If Qiu Jin pursued you like this, can you not curse at him?]

(T/N: The above commenter is calling herself an immortal fairy (a play on Xiang Xi’s “immortal” image) and using the arrogant pronoun for I. So she’s defending Xiang Xi.)

[Let me say it straight, if Qiu Jin pursued me like this, I would have agreed long ago…]

[Agreed +1]

[Agreed +10086]

[For real. Qiu Jin may be greasy, but he is really handsome. Forget about kabedon, I would be willing to birth a little monkey for him…]

[Commenter above, have you gone crazy from your alpha fantasies? You can even say these kinds of words? What kind of ill luck has our Xiang Xi ran into, to be entangled with this kind of person.]

“Ahhhhhhh! I’m so annoyed! Why can’t Qiu Jin just go and die!”

Xiang Xi smashed his phone against the wall. His previously aloof and cold face was filled with hot anger.

Chapter 3 – So Exciting?

Both times he had transmigrated into a book. Last time, he had become a superstar omega with ultra fragrant pheromones, and he had to live everyday with prudence and caution.

But now, he wasn’t an omega. He has become an alpha.

Although his character was badly stained, he was no longer in a weak position and he didn’t need to be on guard everywhere he went.

In the future, he would not have to use inhibitors, he would not have to worry about protecting his glands, and he didn’t have to worry about being tied to someone else while muddleheaded, letting an alpha control his fate.

Translations are by vmnovels [dot] com, if you’re reading this anywhere else, then it was stolen.

Moreover, he was still within the entertainment circle, a scene that he was familiar with. Qiu Jin thought about his bright future and stood up, following Ji Shenxiao back to the dressing room.

Assistant Liu Wei thought that he still wanted to go look for Ji Shenxiao to stir up trouble. He was so scared that his nerves were about to give out. “Brother Qiu! You still want to go…?”

Qiu Jin tossed the towel and said calmly: “Change clothes and then go back.”

Liu Wei was covered by the towel and in a daze. How come he felt like Brother Qiu was a little different?

The dressing room was very large. There were rows upon rows of lockers.

It was worthy of being completely reserved. The inside was absolutely empty. There was only the sound of some slight rustling coming from around the corner. Most likely, it was Ji Shenxiao changing clothes.

Support the translator. Read this on vmnovels (dot) com

After that extremely embarrassing event that just happened, Qiu Jin didn’t want to go over and get scolded again, so he planned to change clothes by the door. His little assistant still held a pile of clothes, imitating a coat rack.

However, when he took off his swimming trunks, a white thing fell off to the floor with a plop.

The f*ck, what kind of thing was this?

Why did socks fall from the crotch of his pants?

His shocked expression must have been too obvious, so Liu Wei explained: “In order to compare sizes with President Ji, you deliberately padded yourself with two layers.”

Qiu Jin: ???

Socks in his underpants? What the heck was this person doing?

This was too much. He was going to choke or suffocate. Either one. He wasn’t picky.

Qiu Jin couldn’t be bothered to care about the original host’s brain damage. He wiped his body dry with a towel and began to put on his clothes.

However, he did not expect Ji Shenxiao to have finished changing clothes and came out. The man was wearing a tailored suit with the shirt buttoned all the way to the top. His face was indifferent and unattainable. He could not see the appearance of anger from when they were in the swimming pool at all.

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

Until the other party’s cold gaze flickered over his body, Qiu Jin realized afterwards that he was being looked all over, and he subconsciously dragged a towel to cover his body.

In the middle of his action, Qiu Jin suddenly reacted. He was now an alpha. Would an alpha cover up himself when he met another alpha in a public dressing room?

To cover or not to cover, this was a problem.

Just as he was deliberating over this, Ji Shenxiao had already come over.

Qiu Jin couldn’t care so much anymore. He pulled up his pants at lightning speed.

With his lower half no longer exposed to the air, he finally retrieved a sense of security. Thus, he began to leisurely button up his shirt. There was a sense of sensuality to his gracefulness. Each and every move was full of flawless beauty, as if he were shooting a luxury advertisement.

However, when he saw Ji Shenxiao’s gaze fall upon the socks on the floor, he couldn’t help faltering for a while and accidentally buttoned a button in the wrong hole.

Liu Wei thought his family’s master was sad so he kissed up to him: “Brother Qiu, don’t be disheartened. President Ji is definitely not as big as you!”

Qiu Jin: “…”

This little assistant, he was not so good at other things, but he has perfected the skill of kissing up to people.

Qiu Jin rolled his eyes and unhurriedly put on his coat. He was magnanimous and has always been lenient to the people around him.

Seeing that the boss’s face didn’t seem so good, Liu Wei continued trying to kiss up to him: “Or how about next time I give you three socks?”

Qiu Jin could not bear it any more: “…Scram!”

It will be impossible to satisfy everyone, since everyone’s opinions are different. But it was very insightful to know what some of your preferences are. I’ll be experimenting a bit in the future to find a style that suits me best. Thank you everyone. Happy reading~♡

Chapter 2 – So Exciting?

The coat rack saw him, and took a few strides over to kneel in front of him, shouting at him anxiously and cautiously, “Jin… Brother Qiu, how about you cover up first?”

Qiu Jin took the bath towel and covered up his body. His sharp eyes swept across the coat rack’s face.

The latter was shocked by his glancing look. He passed over a mobile phone and said, “Brother Yang just called, I… I didn’t tell him about this.”

Qiu Jin didn’t bat an eyelid, remaining calm and collected as he used his fingerprint to unlock the phone. In the call log there was the name Yang Chi.

The coat rack said cautiously, “But… but even if your confession failed, you still shouldn’t enter the swimming pool that President Ji reserved. Ji Shenxiao can kill us with his pinky finger. How can we possibly provoke such a person?”

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

The person outside was Ji Shenxiao?

Qiu Jin shifted his gaze and just so happened to see the man from outside walk pass in front of him into the dressing room. There was a white bath towel slung around his waist. His mermaid line was sexy as hell.

[T/N: mermaid line – someone explained this to me as the line or the dip between the abs and the hipbone.]

It was just that his expression was really ugly. His face looked like he had saw some plague-infected thing and he couldn’t wait to get as far away as possible.

Drawing his attention back, the thin young man in front of him was still chattering: “It’s not like you’re the first person in history to get rejected after confessing. You also know that Xiang Xi has always been like that to you. There is no need to compare with President Ji…”

Why is he talking so much? Annoying.

Qiu Jin frowned: “Shut up.”

The young man’s eyes widened. He made a zipper movement over his lips, not daring to speak.

Ji Shenxiao, Xiang Xi… these familiar names flashed by in his mind. Only until now did Qiu Jin realized that he had transmigrated into a book yet again.

Why “yet again?” Because this was not the first time that he has transmigrated.

Once upon a time, Qiu Jin was a legend in the entertainment circle. He was of common birth, but the heavens bestowed him with good looks and great acting skills. He went through challenging experiences along the way and became a seasoned actor. Then he seized the award for Film Emperor with his skills. His prospects were unlimited. But in an unexpected mishap, he fell into the water and transmigrated. He became an omega superstar.

In order to blend in with society, Only Want Your Pheromones was a JJ Danmei novel that he had read to understand ABO knowledge.

[T/N: Danmei is basically the Chinese word for “boys love.” JJ stands for jjwxc, which is a website for online web novels, and also the website where I found this story. Thank you to Happy Cat for telling me that. And just in case, ABO = alpha, beta, omega]

The protagonist gong was Ji Shenxiao, an aloof tyrant CEO. He was alpha to the max. His self-control was so strong that no matter how omegas tried to seduce him, he would remain unmovable like a mountain. Until he met the protagonist omega shou, which activated his second vein and turned him into the fiercest gong dog.

And he was the cannon fodder alpha that competed with Ji Shenxiao.

Arrogant and despotic, he tried to forcefully take, and grandly lost. He challenged the protagonist’s bottom line again and again. In the end, his gland was destroyed, and his family fell into destitution.

The scene that happened just now was after his nth confession was rejected by the protagonist shou omega Xiang Xi, he rushed to his imaginary rival, Ji Shenxiao, in anger, relying on his sexiest alpha title within the entertainment circle to compete with the other man, wanting to compare body figures, and wanting to compare whose jj was bigger.

[T/N: The raws say jj in English letters. Based on context, I think we can all guess that it means penis.]

As a result, he was thrown out as a lunatic without hesitation.

He was humiliated to next Sunday and back.

However, Qiu Jin remembered that in the novel he never pulled off Ji Shenxiao’s underwear!

After all, Ji Shenxiao was like some noble person in the sky, how could such a small supporting role have the cheek to see his big dong?

Don’t even think about it!

The readers would be the first to disagree!

You have to know that although Qiu Jin was an alpha in the book, according to the novel settings, no matter how resolute and upright in character an alpha was, he would still have to prostrate himself beneath the exceedingly exceptional Ji Shenxiao’s suit trousers.

How could things be so favorable and advantageous for him?

What’s more, Qiu Jin didn’t want to take advantage of this right now. Since he has become an alpha, who still cared about omega? No matter how alluring the omega, no omega could be as alluring as he was in his previous incarnation.

Living well was the most important thing.

This Alpha’s Pheromones 1

T/N 1: I found another fluffy modern day story! There’s a slight twist, with this being set in an ABO world and the focus is on the entertainment industry, which are both topics I have yet to translate before. (I don’t feel like that one arc in LMSTB counts, because it hardly touched on the work side of the entertainment business.)

T/N 2: I previewed a little bit of this story, and it had me hooked on the first page. Maybe it’s because of my off-brand humor, but I couldn’t help chuckling while reading. The first arc has a slice of life feel to it, because the MC is shooting a variety show along that vein. This arc sets up and also develops the relationships between the MC, the protagonist gong, and the protagonist shou. The protagonist shou is a little spitfire that gives me major Yuri Plisetsky (from Yuri!!! on Ice) vibes. At first, I was dreading that he would be another hateful protagonist shou in this genre, but it doesn’t look like that will be the case, so I’m looking forward to his development. For those who are not a big fan of laid-back slice of life stories, this novel does go beyond the variety show, and the MC moves on to other projects.

T/N 3: Chapters will be split into parts.

T/N 4: Behind the scenes, I am gradually working on stockpiling chapters so that I may some day provide more consistent updates for my side projects. I didn’t want to announce this before, since I feel like it will take me a long while to reach that point, considering my regular updates for my main projects and various real life responsibilities, but perhaps some of you might like to know that I am working towards that goal eventually. In the meanwhile, I thank you very much for your patience and support all this time.

Chapter 1 – So Exciting?

“Shameless!”

The angry voice of a man rang in his ears as Qiu Jin fell into the water with a “boom.”

He wanted to call for help, but only gurgling sounds came from his throat. While he was dazed and bewildered, a black shadow flitted by in front of him…

As if seeing his last straw to clutch at, Qiu Jin paddled through the water and reached out to grab it. The black shadow disappeared, and a trembling pink and tender thing jumped out.
Translations are by vmnovels [dot] com, if you’re reading this anywhere else, then it was stolen.
The little pink elephant – no, that’s not right – the big pink elephant seemed to have never encounter such an experience before and it fell into a huge shock, blankly poking Qiu Jin in the face.

What is this thing? It had a satiny* feel to it. Was he hallucinating?

[*T/N: 滑腻 hua ni – satiny. Used to describe skin texture in particular.]

Qin Jiu blinked his eyes. His gaze tracked upwards along abdominal muscles and pectoral muscles…

“Go away!”

A violent voice came from above his head, and at the same time, a foot lashed out and hit him on the chest.

A dull pain passed through his body and Qiu Jin struggled anew.

“You kicked me! Why did you… gulu gulu…”

[*T/N: 咕噜 gu lu – noisy drinking sound, or in other words, drowning in water sounds.]

Swimming with tremendous strength, he finally broke through the surface of the water. He shook his head, forcing himself to recover from the dizziness.

Qiu Jin was in a high-altitude open-air swimming pool. In such a huge place, asides from the man who had kicked him angrily, there was no one else present.

He lowered his head and looked down. There was a pair of swimming trunks in his hand.

It wasn’t his.

He lifted his head and saw a man propping himself up at the edge of the swimming pool. The muscles in his arms swelled in a beautiful curve. With one push, he quickly propelled himself out of the swimming pool.

His smooth set of actions was perfection at its finest. The muscles on his body were endlessly captivating. The only thing that wasn’t harmonious about the whole picture was that he wasn’t wearing any swimming trunks.

Qin Jiu lowered his head and noticed the thin black fabric in his hands…

He had actually stole someone’s swimming trunks? And he even saw the other person’s little pink elephant?

“…”

This was embarrassing to the eighth level.

“Hey, you drop your thing.”

Qiu Jin waved the black swimming trunks on his hands, trying to return the thing to the other party.

At almost the exact same time, the man called out in a voice with suppressed anger: “Lu Pingyin, throw this person out!!!”

Qin Jiu could not accept this: “I’m just returning your pants, why are you throwing me out?!”

As soon as he said this, the other man’s expression sank for a moment.

Soon, a young man in a suit ran over. With inconceivable strength, he caught both of Qin Jiu’s hands behind his back.

Qiu Jin was totally stupefied. Before he could figure out what was going on, he was met with this kind of bitter experience. He immediately started to struggle.

“Who are you? Let go of me!”

The man did not speak. He only dragged him out with incredible strength.

He was also very wronged, okay? He came to this place inexplicably and suffered a beating.

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

Qiu Jin shouted with an unyielding spirit: “Who told him to kick me! I didn’t do it on purpose!”

It was a pity that his refutation didn’t do anything at all. The man didn’t say a word all the way. His movements were elegant and strong. And just like that, he was thrown out of the swimming pool’s entrance.

Cough, cough, cough…

Qiu Jin was still panting heavily on the ground, like a half-dead salted fish.

What the hell is this?

Didn’t he fall into the sea? But then, how did he appear in the swimming pool just now? And he also stole a man’s underpants?

“Brother Qiu!”

Just then, a thin young man rushed over. He was carrying two backpacks on his body. There was a coat draped over his arms, and a big bath towel stuffed against his chest. He looked like a walking coat rack.

Question: Which translation style do you prefer?

For example, if I were to translate 仇哥, I would translate it as either “Brother Qiu” or “Qiu ge.” (Or would you like a hyphen in there? Qiu-ge.)

A general rule of thumb for me is I try to translate everything that I possibly can into English, unless a certain phrase becomes too cumbersome to read in English (i.e. dashixiong = eldest senior martial brother), or if there’s no exact English equivalent (i.e. wangfei).

But I think some people prefer to keep the honorifics in their pinyin forms (i.e. gege, jiejie, dage, erjie, etc). I’ve been grappling with this dilemma for a while now. I don’t mind either way. I just want to use whichever one you find easier to read. If you don’t care either way, then I’ll just keep my current system.

Summary

Qiu Jin transmigrated into a book once again.

Last time, he transmigrated into an omega with pheromones that could make people go crazy. This time the heavens were merciful and finally had him transmigrate into an alpha. Moreover, it was the sexiest alpha in the entertainment circle.

Unfortunately, it was a cannon fodder.

The main gōng in the original book was Ji Shenxiao, an aloof tyrant CEO. He was alpha to the max. His self-control was so strong that no matter how omegas tried to seduce him, he would remain unmovable like a mountain. Until he met the protagonist omega shòu, which activated his second vein and turned him into the fiercest gōng dog.

And Qiu Jin was the cannon fodder alpha that competed with Ji Shenxiao. Arrogant and despotic, he tried to forcefully take, and grandly lost. He challenged the protagonist’s bottom line again and again. In the end, his gland was destroyed, and his family fell into destitution.

In this regard, Qiu Jin expressed that he would not be a toxic alpha male, so protagonist you go scram. However, humans could not defy the fates, and just when Qiu Jin was striving to become a high-quality alpha, the pheromones that made all the alphas go crazy in the last world came back!

At that moment, he saw the protagonist gōng suppressing his desires till his eyes were red, and his pheromones went out of control.

Qiu Jin swallowed: “Bro, let’s talk this out…”

The alpha squeezed the back of his neck, his voice hoarse: “But I prefer to do it directly.”

Love rivals become lovers. Alpha becomes omega.

[Exceedingly strong tyrant CEO ignited with desire alpha gōng] x [Mega superstar with extremely sweet pheromones omega shòu]
