Chapter 15.11 – Bellflower in Full Bloom
Zhou Yun Sheng felt very awkward with the way that Xue Zi Xuan was staring at him. He wanted to avoid him, but an arm suddenly wrapped around his waist and almost took his breath away. He put both of his hands on the young man’s much stronger chest and said in a low voice, “When I get better, let’s go back.”
Xue Zi Xuan took a deep breath and asked in a trembling voice, “Go back where?”
“Go back to China, back to the Xue manor.” Zhou Yun Sheng finally gave up on resisting, and then settled into the warm embrace of the young man with peace of mind.
Xue Zi Xuan’s heart, which had climbed up to his throat in anxiety, finally settled back down. With a soft smile, he kissed the teenager’s dry lips. The kiss was very soft and long. The tips of their tongues pressed against each other, rubbed slowly, and intertwined together.
After the kiss ended, the two of them stared at each other with avaricious gazes, and smiled slightly.
Three days later, the two returned to China. A reporter coincidentally saw the two of them together. The reporter took a picture of the two walking out of the airport while holding hands, and posted the photo on the Internet. Only then did everyone know why the male god did not update his Weibo for several days.

The young man was tall and handsome, while the youth beside him was slender and delicate. One was looked down with a smile on his face, while the other was looking up while talking. They looked like the perfect match.
Xue Zi Xuan, who has never allowed the media to report anything on him, did not block this photo. Instead, he reposted it on Weibo and wrote four words with great sincerity: Thankful to have you.
In the midst of despair, thankful to have you; on the long journey, thankful to have you; you are the most beautiful existence in the world.
Although they couldn’t pinpoint the most touching aspect of all this, the fans still cried like idiots over this photo of them holding hands and the accompanying words.
The Xue manor was still the same as before, except for the addition of a huge glass greenhouse filled with bellflowers.
The day that Zhou Yun Sheng returned to the Xue manor, the bellflowers were in full bloom. The purple dots of flowers in the greenhouse were like beautiful specks of stars and looked extremely beautiful.
Xue Zi Xuan hugged Zhou Yun Sheng from behind and kissed him on the cheeks and neck. His face was filled with happiness. Zhou Yun Sheng was about to tilt his head and give him a solid French kiss, but the housekeeper knocked on the glass door and said: “Miss Xue is here again. She is very ill. We don’t dare to touch her. Do you need to go out and take a look, sir?”
“Xue Jing Yi?” Zhou Yun Sheng raised one eyebrow. He thought that Xue Jing Yi’s fragile little heart would not be able to handle the heavy burden of imprisonment and her ruined reputation, but clearly he was wrong.
“Yeah, she comes every one or two months.” The gentle smile on Xue Zi Xuan’s face disappeared in an instant.
He had already brought a lawsuit to court in order to have his brother-and-sister relationship with Xue Jing Yi forcibly dissolved. Except for her surname, Xue Jing Yi had nothing to do with the Xue family any more. Xue Rui was sentenced to seven years in prison, while Xue Li Dan Ni was sentenced to five years in prison. As the principal offender, Xue Jing Yi was sentenced to fifteen years, but was granted medical parole because of her medical condition.

But she had no family and no savings. Being on medical parole was not even as comfortable as being in jail. At least in prison she would have food and a place to live. Outside of prison, she had to eat in the open air and sleep outdoors*, living from hand to mouth. She had no money to buy medicine, and her reputation was so bad that she could not find a job. The prison guards who visited her regularly saw that she was pitiful, and gave her a few hundred dollars every month.
[*T/N: “to eat in the open air and sleep outdoors” – this is a Chinese idiom meaning to have to rough it, so it might not be literal, but it still means the person is in dire straits.]
Zhou Yun Sheng came to the front door and he could hardly believe his eyes. The scrawny person with a pale yellow complexion and disheveled hair leaning against the iron gate was the little princess of the Xue family who once used to be so lofty.
Seeing the boy with a bunch of bellflowers in his hand, Xue Jing Yi shouted loudly.
“Xiao Yi, you’re back! I was wrong. I beg you, please forgive me! It was the devil that made me do it. I actually didn’t want to. I regret it every day, and I reflect on it every day. I really know my mistake. Make my brother forgive me and take me back, okay? I’m your only biological relative. Wouldn’t it be good for us to live happily together? Xiao Yi, let me in, and let’s talk this out.”
