FOD: Xue Zi Xuan 2.5

Edit: For some reason there are some really angry people who think this is fanfiction instead of a translation. There is a link to the Chinese raws in the title page… ?(─.─||)

This is a side story that Feng Liu Shu Dai, the original author, wrote because of how popular Xue Zi Xuan’s character was in the main story. This is the author’s summary of the side story [translated]:

“Don’t know if all of you still remember or not, in Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil’s ending, Zhou Yun Sheng repaired and saved the database that was destroyed by the Lord God. This story happens in the virtual world re-built by Zhou Yun Sheng. Xue Zi Xuan vs villain Zhou Yun Sheng can be seen as a new story, a villain counterattack x slag gong rebirth text, a clear-cut HE. And what Xue Zi Xuan loves is Zhou Yun Sheng the person, the soul, and has nothing to do with whether he can play the piano or not.” [Summary also available on the title page.]

Aw, what the heck, here’s the Chinese text too. Copied and pasted, by the way:
《薛子軒》的掃雷試閱:不知道大家還記不記得,打臉狂魔結局時,
周周把主神摧毀的數據庫修復並保存了,
故事就發生在周周重新建立的虛擬世界裡。
薛子軒vs反派周周,可以當做一個新的故事來看,反派逆襲渣攻重生文,爽文he。
以及薛子軒愛的是周周這個人,這個靈魂,跟他會不會彈鋼琴完全沒有任何關系。

Chapter 2.5 – Breeding Hate

“If you touch the piano again, I will break your hands.” With that sentence, Xue Zi Xuan walked away.

“Why?” Zhou Yun Sheng gritted his teeth and asked. His ten fingers were uncontrollably trembling because of the pain.

“The sound of your piano is like the walking dead with no soul.” When he said this sentence, the loathing was clear in his tone of voice.

The door of the room slammed with a bang, and silence rang loud in the piano room. Zhou Yun Sheng stood up and furrowed his eyebrows at his red and swollen fingers. His face was pale and white.

Xue Jing Yi, who was crackling with anger before, let out a silver bell-like laugh. Her slightly curved eyes were full of joy. She said slowly, “I remember warning you before, don’t enter the piano room, otherwise I’ll have Mom and Dad send you away. But forget it. Seeing that my brother has taught you a lesion, I’ll forgive you this time. There is no soul? Like the walking dead? How do you do it? That is the worst evaluation I have ever heard.”

She was very happy. All of her restless fears were relieved when she saw her brother almost crushing the youth’s phalanges. It was as if she had been waiting for this scene for a long time. Genius? Humph.

Zhou Yun Sheng did not respond to her satire and left in a hurry. Going back to his room, he heard the system announcing the completion of his task, but this did not extinguish the anger in his heart. Instead, he let out a fierce laugh.

“You predicted this situation long ago, isn’t that right? I am the villain. My role is to be repeatedly stuck down by the protagonist? F*ck. In what way was my piano playing bad?” He turned on the computer and used the software to play Early Morning. Resisting the pain of his fingers he said, “Look at this fingering technique, look at the pitch, look at the rhythm. This is perfection. This is the height of technical skills. It is superb! Where is it not good? What are you talking about? There is no soul? Walking dead? Tch. You don’t even understand perfection when you hear it!”

It was impossible for the system to give any response. Zhou Yun Sheng cursed for a while and then calmed down. He was preparing to sleep when Fu Bo pushed open his door with a taut face.

“I heard that you broke into the piano room today and angered the young master?” He was full of disdain and disgust, and warned coldly, “You can go anywhere in this house, but you can’t enter the piano room. If you commit another blunder, I will tell the mister and missus, and have you sent back to the countryside.”

This one and that one, they’re all using that sentence to threaten me. If you can then send me back now. That is exactly what this lao zi* wants! But do you dare? If you don’t dare then stop grumbling like a motherf*cker! Zhou Yun Sheng sneered in his heart. But he assumed a timid expression on his face, shrinking in the corner of the bed and did not dare to move, as if he was really scared.

[*Muse: 老子 lao zi: An exalted way of referring to oneself. “I, your father” (said in anger or out of contempt)]

Comparing the conditions of the Xue family and Xiao Liu Village, one was like the sky and the other was like the earth. Even living as a dog in the Xue family was better than living in Xiao Liu Village. Fu Bo used his own prejudices to measure the other, and thought that the youth must be reluctant to leave. Seeing that he knew his place and was afraid, he threw a medicine box over. “Tend to yourself, I don’t have time.”

Zhou Yun Sheng nodded. He took out the ointment and applied it on his red and swollen fingers. The knuckles could still move. It seemed to not be broken, but he didn’t know if the bones were cracked. Unless the Xue family was willing to take him to the hospital to have an X-ray done. But he already knew that it was impossible. Never mind breaking ten fingers, even if his limbs were wasted, as long as the heart was whole and hale, they would not care.

Abnormal! Bastards! He silently cursed Xue Zi Xuan in his heart hundreds of times, and then he cursed the Xue family and their ancestors.

From that day on, Fu Bo dispatched the assistant to follow Zhou Yun Sheng and then reported his every move to Xue Rui. Unauthorized touch of the piano made the Xue family resentful of him. Xue Li Dan Ni strictly forbade her daughter from contacting the teenager, saying that he was undisciplined, and that his hands and feet were dirty*.

[*Muse: 手脚不干净: light-fingered / prone to stealing]

Of course, those were just excuses. What she was worried about was that her daughter would cultivate positive feelings with her twin brother after spending days and nights together. In the future, his inexplicable disappearance would provoke her daughter to be sad. If her daughter had not eavesdropped on her husband’s conversation and demanded that her brother be brought back to the manor to be cared for, then they were originally planning to put him under house arrest some place else, and then bring him back only when it was time for the operation.

Xue Jing Yi was resistant on the surface, pretending to be protecting her brother, but she was secretly happy on the inside. She felt that she had found a way to drive the boy out of the family. She could make her parents and brother hate him more and more, until they couldn’t bear him anymore. As for how to go about doing that, she didn’t yet have a clue.

Zhou Yun Sheng clearly felt the Xue family’s attitude towards him change. They regarded him as a vessel, as a moving heart, as a white lab rat, just not as human. Xue Zi Xuan didn’t even want to eat at the same table with him, so they had Fu Bo send his meals to his room.

His hair was growing longer and longer. His clothes were getting more and more feminine. And his long-term house arrest had caused his skin to become morbidly pale. He was practically like a second Xue Jing Yi. The family doctor began to visit the Xue manor frequently, and used a combination of Chinese and Western medicine to regulate Xue Jing Yi’s body.

The brother and sister pair was of the Mumbai blood type. In the whole of China, only forty people have the same blood type. As one could well imagine, it was very hard to find a suitable heart donor. Because of the difficulty of the task, Xue Li Dan Ni agreed with her husband to look in the northwest for their daughter’s relatives. As expected, all of her immediate family members were already dead. There was only one twin brother remaining in the world.

A twin brother, orphan, same blood type, a healthy heart, humble origins… Every label indicated a possibility of their daughter’s full recovery. The dawn of hope suddenly appeared, so how could the couple be willing to miss this chance. Naturally they had him brought back and actively nursed their daughter’s body. To prevent having more nightmares in a long night*, it was better to take this heart out as soon as possible.

[*Muse: 夜长梦多 “long night, more dreams” means the longer they drag things out, the more problems are likely to crop up in the interval]

Likewise, Zhou Yun Sheng also received a daily checkup, to ensure that his body was in good health. Seeing the crude way he wrapped his fingers, the family doctor patiently helped him unravel the bandages and re-bandage his fingers, but he did not mention performing an x-ray. As long as there was no problem with the heart then it didn’t matter what happened to his hands and feet. Anyways, he was going to die soon.

Xue Zi Xuan was very busy recently, often not returning home. In addition, the influx of strangers coming and going from his house made him extremely uncomfortable, thus another reason for his absence from the house. Half a month later there was a very important musical performance, so he was rehearsing with the orchestra’s colleagues.

“OK, there is no problem this time. Try not to use the metronome next time.” The conductor waved his hand and disbanded the orchestra members.

Xue Zi Xuan stood up from the piano, took two steps, and suddenly fainted onto the floor.

“Ah, this is not good, Mr. Xue fainted. Quickly, quickly, dial 120.” The people rushed to crowd around him, but no one dared to touch him. Then they all frantically dialed the emergency number one after the other.

The Xue family received the news that Xue Zi Xuan had fallen into a coma for two hours and had yet to show any signs of waking. The doctor did a thorough examination on him and found no abnormalities. He had to stay in the hospital for observation.

Xue Li Dan Ni was out of the country. Xue Rui hastily rushed home to pack some clothes and daily necessities. When he talked to Fu Bo, he forgot to suppress his voice, so his daughter overheard. Xue Jing Yi almost fainted, crying and shouting to go to the hospital together.

Zhou Yun Sheng’s fingers were still swollen. He couldn’t play games and he couldn’t program. So he pulled up a movie to watch. Just as he was getting engrossed in the plot, he heard the ruckus from downstairs. He didn’t want to bother with it at first, but then he heard Xue Jing Yi’s miserable cries and opened the door to take a look with a heart full of schadenfreude.

“Uncle Xue, what happened?” He stood at the mouth of the stairs and wore a troubled look.

“Nothing much. Return to your room, ba.” Xue Rui forced a smile. Xue Jing Yi also stopped crying noisily and silently wiped her tears.

Zhou Yun Sheng tactfully returned to the room. He stood by the door and eavesdropped for a while, upon which he learned that Xue Zu Xuan was in a coma and lying in the hospital.

“F*cking bastard. Serves you right.” He narrowed his eyes and smiled darkly.

[End of Chapter 2]

  1. AAAAAHHHHH!!!!!! It’s happening!!! I can’t wait for the third chapter! Thank you so much for this chapter! (☆^O^☆)Now we just shave to painfully wait for the third chapter….O(≧▽≦)Okeep up the good work!( ゚∀゚)ノ♡

  2. Now is the time for him to be reborn! Ahhh~ I’m so nervous ?

    Ooo~ better watch out~! Time for the counterattack soon~!

    Kufufufufu~ I wonder how this relationship will come about? This is our godly talented man after all, he’s not so benevolent to just “like” after being treated like that, ufufufufu~ How many “f*cks!” is Xie Zu Xuan gonna scream after finding out he’s trampled his own efforts~? Hehehe~ ?

    Thank you for translation! Mwah~?

    1. You’re welcome~! ( ´͈ ᗨ `͈ )
      And wow, all of your comments are right on. Our ZYS is not so forgiving, and XZX is going to be beating himself over the head for a while.
      Teeheehee.٩̋(๑˃́ꇴ˂̀๑)

  3. Time for XZX to grovel. ? Thanks for the release! By the way, the previous chapter link leads to 1.6.

  4. And suddenly, the things he regrets will be as high as a mountain.

    Thanks for the great translation ♥️♥️

    1. *rubs hands in glee*
      It will be entertaining to see how XZX grovels and how ZYS plays his white lotus act while secretly plotting revenge.

  5. Are u kidding me? is this what you meant as translation? its basically copied an ark that is already made, im so freakin angry.. whats the point of rebirth when he was on the top of the food chain and why must it be in this big computer lord again??? if the story was retelling his flashback, i would been very much happy to read it but this looks like a fake translation and side story that never existed in the main plot line ??????????

    1. Um, i really don’t understand some people..
      This is a spin-off. The author is the same person who write the main story, you know?
      What r u so freaking angry about…?

    2. This is a translation. The author wrote this arc as a bonus story; it’s not a stand-alone. You could think of it as an epilogue for after Zhou Yunsheng reset the digital worlds. The translator did not write it. If you don’t want to read the extra that goes with Quickly Wear the Face of the Devil, then don’t read it.

    3. This is a side story which the author wrote probably because of how pitiful Xue Zi Xuan was by the end of this arc in the main story. Some readers may have been sad for him and his ending. Gotta appease those grieving, protesting readers and make everyone happy so voila, a story with HE for ZYS and XZX.

    4. The back story of how this bonus story happened doesn’t really matter, I think. It may be just so that the author could make a HE between ZYS and XZX so that there will be closure for the readers who liked and pitied XZX’s character in the main “canon” arc.

  6. liar this part of the story doesnt exist where hes been reborn… ??? what the hell, the story is completely translated… this must be a self created story not a translation

  7. Well, I’m getting spoilers from the other comments XD. So I guess now that I’ve reached the latest chapter, I’ll go read that FOD novel.

    But for the moment, XZX got What he deserved.

    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. Hey Azhreik! Nice to see you in the comments again. ^-^
      This is indeed a side story to another story, kind of like a spin off or an alternative version of what could happen. It would be better to read the main story first for a better understanding of the backstory to this spin off.
      I should warn you that the main story is very long though. I had many sleepless nights binge reading it. No regrets. XD

  8. Oooooh yeeesssssss he’s coming he’s coming he’s coming XDXDXD now he’ll regret everything :3:3:3 thanks for the chapter~~

  9. I’m looking forward to how things develop from here. Yunsheng and the elder brother are clearly enemies at this point. XD

    About the people who keep harassing you in the comments, perhaps you can find a way to block them?

    1. Thank you for coming to my defense. 🙂
      I don’t know how to block people yet because I’ve never had the need to before, but I’ll look into it during my spare time.

  10. Dear VM~
    I’ve been reading the comments and I’ve seen two horrifically rude ones. I don’t understand what those posters were thinking, perhaps they were trolling? I want to thank you so much for translating! Much love ?

    1. Thank you Qiuqiu-chan for taking the time to leave me a nice comment. Your kindness really helps. Much love ˉ̞̭(′͈∨‵͈♡)˄̻ ̊

  11. The readers should already know that this is a spin off. It even said so in past translations, and the summery page. Don’t worry! We readers know that this is a real translated story! ⊂((・▽・))⊃(´ ▽`).。o♡

    1. Thanks. (°◡°♡).:。
      I honestly thought everyone knew it was a spin off, especially by the time they got to chapter 2. XD

  12. I don’t have a wattpad account nor do I want one. If I’m to read MoonlightFrost’s translated odd chapters, it says I need to have an account!!!!

    Is there any other way to avoid this measure??

    1. I didn’t know you had to have a wattpad account in order to read their stories since I made my account a long time ago. But I will be posting all the chapters of Xue Zi Xuan’s side story on this website. It’s just that Moonlightfrost10 will update the odd chapters faster, so you’ll have to wait a little before the odd chapters appear on my website.
