Chapter 10.5 – A World With Only Two People

Xue Jing Yi shouted “Mom” twice, but did not get a response, and finally she realized that there was no one in this family who could stop her brother anymore.

They were both adopted children. So why was the person he fell in love with not her? It should not have been this way!

Xue Zi Xuan extinguished his cigarette. His expression was enigmatic. The semi-threatening words before were just perfunctory, and not his original intention. He had never thought of hiding his feelings. On the contrary, he wished that he could declare it to the entire world.

But his beloved teenager was right by his side. If he were determined to go at it with his mother, the teenager would be forced to bear too much pressure. He was still so young. He deserved to live more carefree and without worries.

So he took a shot and sent Xue Mother and Xue Father away first. All the rumors, objections, and pressure in the future would be borne by him alone.

There was still a matter in his heart and he was somewhat impatient. He saw Xue Jing Yi still dawdling in the room, unwilling to leave. He said coldly: “Go back and pack your things, I will send you to Switzerland tomorrow.”

Xue Jing Yi wiped away her tears and floated away like a wandering spirit. When she got to the door, she turned around, and her sharp, knife-like eyes pierced the teenager’s chest hard, as if she were going to dig out his heart.

Zhou Yun Sheng was sharp and instantly caught this trace of murderous intent. He could not help but arch a brow, wondering if she knew something. But before he could investigate, Xue Jing Yu had withdrew her gaze and turned to leave.

Then he looked at the young man and asked: “When did we fall in love with each other?”

Xue Zi Xuan leisurely helped him put on a pair of white socks, and muttered: “Always have been. Furthermore, it was on the premise of marriage.”

If he were drinking water at this time, Zhou Yun Sheng would definitely spray it out. He choked for a long time before criticizing: “Don’t talk nonsense. When did I promise to marry you? Same-sex marriage in China is not protected by law!”

“Then we will change our nationality and find a country that recognizes gay marriage. I can transfer Xue’s consortium abroad.”

Xue Zi Xuan’s light tone of voice was the same as if he were talking about trivial matters, and not about immigration, transferring assets, etc, these matters of vital life-changing importance.

The fact of the matter was that for him these were really nothing. In his previous life, he was suppressed by Xue Yan and unable to gain a foothold in China. The Xue consortium was also beaten down. As a last resort, he changed his nationality and transferred his assets abroad.

Now that he was reborn again, he was sincerely thankful for the suffering and displacement of his previous life. It made him strong and at the same time gave him the ability to protect the teenager.

So say, he did lose really poorly in his last life. In the face of family coercion, he could only make concessions and compromise again and again. This life was different. He would never repeat the same mistakes.

Zhou Yun Sheng looked deeply into the eyes of the young man and found that there was only firmness and passion in it, without perfunctory and jokes, and finally determined that what he said was true.

If he said that his heart was not moved at all, that would be impossible.

This warm feeling, this wide and warm embrace, has always been his deepest hidden desire.

But he could not forget the young man’s original intention for bringing him back to the Xue family, and he could not believe his sudden and unrequited love. If he blindly placed his hopes on him, he feared that sooner or later he would be disappointed, and even sink into despair. The young man has planned a future for them, but in his future, the young man did not exist.

In the end, he still did not believe him. Or rather, he did not dare to believe him.

Zhou Yun Sheng stroked his eyelids, dared not face the young man who appeared so sincere at this moment, whispered a “I’m going to the computer room,” and then fled.

Staring at the teenager’s hastily retreating back, Xue Zi Xuan thought that he was scared by the passion just now. He smiled, a helpless smile full of love.

February 2021 Update

Good news, I’m not dead and I haven’t gotten sick yet. (>﹏<)💦

Bad news, my work place is still grossly understaffed, and I’m chronically tired. Plus, Lunar New Year is coming up, so I have to do spring cleaning at home on top of everything else. I haven’t been able to check any of the comments that I get, so if you asked a question in the comments and I didn’t respond yet, that’s the reason.

On a brighter note, I’ve been translating a sentence here and there whenever I can, so I should hopefully have some regular updates out after the Lunar New Year. Please be patient with me a little longer. Thank you for understanding!

Update 11/14/20

It’s finally my day off!

Had to spend the morning and afternoon running errands and doing chores that I neglected due to work, but now I can finally sit down and get to work on translating. Asides from food and bathroom breaks, I’m going to be steadily translating until I fall asleep, so please be patient a little bit longer while I work on the translations for this week.

Thank you kindly everyone. <3

Delayed Updates?

Hello Everyone,

I feel like I should make a general announcement about this, because in the past month I’ve updated about two chapters a day late, and a couple of chapters have been coming out very late into the day. I’ve had a few people asking if I’m not going to update a story at all whenever that happened. And I want to reassure you that if I promised weekly updates for a certain story, then at the very least there will be weekly updates for that story, even if the update is running late, because I get at least one day off work every week. (That’s the important news. You can keep reading if you want more details.)

For those who were wondering about my real life circumstances, I work in healthcare right now. It’s not the most ideal job given the state of things, because I live with older people and I’m afraid of getting them sick, but I need the money to support my family, so I’ve been taking extra shifts and working overtime whenever I can. This means I usually come home very tired, clonk out on the sofa, wake up to scarf down some food, post an update, and then go back to sleep. (Sometimes I don’t come home at all, because I stay with a friend who lives very close to my workplace. When that happens, I don’t have access to my PC.)

I don’t always post late on work days though. It depends on which shift I get. So sometimes chapters will still be posted at a reasonable time.

Should my financial situation stabilize in the future, I would not need to take as many work shifts, but at the moment I am the only one with a job in the family, so I have to work hard, and I am immensely grateful to have a source of income.

Now would be a good time to ask you not to use ad-block when perusing my site, because I do earn a bit of revenue from the ads on my site. It’s not such a significant amount that I can cut back on my work hours, but every penny helps. (As annoying as the ads may be, they are beneficial to me. Yes, I actually find them highly annoying because I think they mess with the aesthetic and order of the site, and I can’t really control where the ads are placed, because the person who gives me the ads places them in what they consider the most “optimal” spots.)

TL;DR – Please rest assured that my main stories will get updated weekly, although I may sometimes be late due to real life circumstances.

Thank you for your understanding and patience,

— Vanilla Muse

P.S. If you ask me a question in the comments, please excuse me if the reply comes several days late, because I can’t keep up with the comments in real time.

FOD: Xue Zi Xuan 6.4

Chapter 6.4 – Not Forgetting the Original Intention

Will happiness really come again? Xue Zi Xuan smiled and exchanged a few large bills for this purple bellflower swaying in the wind. Carefully, he pressed the stalk into the youth’s hands.
Translations are by vmnovels [dot] com, if you’re reading this anywhere else, then it was stolen.
Zhou Yun Sheng was befuddled. But fortunately the young man did not buy roses for him in front of everyone’s eyes. It was easier to accept a Chinese bellflower. He pinched the flower and sniffed the white stamen gently.

The girl hurriedly refused. “It’s only five yuan for a bellflower. Sir, you have given too much!”

“Not too much, it’s worth it, thank you.” Xue Zi Xuan smiled. The meaning of the bellflower in flower language seemed to herald his destiny. Some day after his rebirth, he could get the blessing of “happiness again.” Nothing was more precious than this sentence, this flower.

He rarely smiled, so when he smiled sincerely, his handsome face seemed to be glowing, and his appearance was also unimaginably gentle. Zhou Yun Sheng gave him a quick glance, then a few seconds later he gave him another glance. He had to admit that he was almost enchanted.

Zhou Yun Sheng couldn’t stand the tenderness and thoughtfulness of the young man. The way he took such good care of him, it made him involuntarily think of the original intention of the young man for bringing him back to the city.

What kind of person could covet his heart (for transplant) and also show him such warm and soft actions? Fine. The young man had schizophrenia, so he could easily switch between being a gentle brother and a cold-blooded killer. In the face of a mentally ill person, Zhou Yun Sheng felt powerless. He pinched the bellflower and continued to wander the streets in the arms of the young man. The expression on his face showed that he was struggling and at a loss.

How he hoped that the warmth that the young man gave him was from the heart, and not some cruel trick prompted by sudden impulse. After reincarnating for several lifetimes, he longed for stability and freedom. Even more, he longed for a dependent shoulder to lean on when he’s exhausted.

Did this shoulder belong to him? Occasionally he would have these unreasonable wishes, but he would quickly resume his tranquil state of mind. Until he could get rid of the villain system, he was not eligible to own anything.

Feeling that the person in his arms had changed from enthusiastic to absent-minded, Xue Zi Xuan turned to look at him and asked softly, “Are you hungry? Let’s find a place to eat?”

“En, let’s go home early after dinner. I’m worried about Jing Yi.” Zhou Yun Sheng answered dispiritedly.

Xue Zi Xuan’s eyes were slightly dark, but he didn’t say anything. He changed from embracing to holding hands and led the teenager into a very high-end French restaurant. Due to the festive atmosphere, the restaurant was full of guests. Without reservations, there was no seating for a while.

Fortunately, Xue Zi Xuan was a frequent visitor. The VIP card was handed over, and the attendant immediately arranged a double seat for them.

Zhou Yun Sheng was holding the flowers, and he was hugged by the handsome and immaculate man. His height just reached the young man’s shoulder, giving off a vague feeling of a little bird relying on people*. Along the way to their table, people kept looking over. They could recognize him as the piano emperor. With expressions of surprise, they turned to whisper to one another.

[*T/N: idiom for “cute and helpless-looking”]

Xue Zi Xuan’s aloofness was renowned among their social circle. But the him of today was full of tender smiles. He was meticulously considerate, guarding the teenager tightly, compared to his past self it was like two completely different people.

It couldn’t be, was the piano emperor in love? And the partner was a young boy? Who could have thought that he was gay! Within a day, rumors and the like will spread in the upper circles.

Zhou Yun Sheng became more and more confused about what the young man was planning to do. He thought that the other party changed superficially on the outside (while remaining the same on the inside) in order to trick him and find another place to put him under house arrest. But right now, he was taking him out openly to high-end venues. His attitude did not seem evasive; instead, he was even more considerate. This high-profile move was completely contrary to his original intention.

Translations by Vanilla Muse.

Isn’t he afraid that some curious person might look into Huang Yi and break through the conspiracy of the Xue family? Zhou Yun Sheng repeatedly pondered, but he never considered that the young man’s feelings for him were real and not some ulterior motive meant to take advantage of him.

While he was thinking wildly of all the possibilities, the two were seated and the server bent over to present two menus to them.

Zhou Yun Sheng returned to his senses, hurriedly glanced at the menu and then set it aside. With his face flushed, he whispered, “Brother, I don’t understand it.” In fact, his spirit and the system were connected. The system had all the information about the world, including all the history and languages of various countries. Not just French, even if it were some aboriginal language in Africa, all he needed to do was use the database of the system and he could grasp the knowledge instantly. But Huang Yi was from a remote and isolated village. That he could speak Mandarin well was already good enough, never mind foreign languages.

Xue Zi Xuan reached out and squeezed his crimson cheeks. He smiled. “Brother will help you order.” He did not expect that Xiao Yi, who was fluent in ten foreign languages in the last life, also had such times of distress. But he knew how smart he was, and if he was given enough time, he could grow to be better than anyone.

“What is the main dish today?” He used perfectly standardized French to communicate with the waiter.

“Vegetable stew in white sauce, the dessert is a Parisian wheel cake.”

Xue Zi Xuan nodded. He looked over the menu for a few seconds and then pointed at a small line of words. He instructed, “Give us the set meal for couples*.”
