Chapter 6.3 – Not Forgetting the Original Intention
Xue Zi Xuan was in a happy mood. He drove around the most prosperous area of the city. While driving, he completely forgot about Xue Jing Yi who was still lying on her sick bed. Zhou Yun Sheng looked intently at the crowds and the colorful neon signs outside the window. Such a scene, no matter how many times he saw it, still felt novel and interesting. It was very different from the highly developed and impersonal interstellar city.

“Want to go to the night market?” Xue Zi Xuan suggested with a smile.
“Brother also goes to the night market?” Zhou Yun Sheng felt that this was a very curious novelty. He thought that this young master was some elegant scholar who did not eat the food of common mortals.
“I’ve never been, but it’s good to try it occasionally.” Xue Zi Xuan had serious mysophobia and didn’t like being too close to other people, but as long as the youth was by his side, letting him have the hope of reaching him, what else could he not stand? He could give up music for him, naturally, he could change his innate character for him.
“Then let’s go take a look?” Zhou Yun Sheng’s peach blossom eyes were round and filled with an eager enthusiasm. Xue Zi XUan could not help but feel as if he was about to open the door and jump down.
“Okay, I’ll find a place to park.” The teenager has eaten and slept well recently, and his cheeks were plump. He looked pink and tender and very cute. Xue Zi Xuan squeezed his soft cheek. The tactile feeling beneath his fingertips felt so good that he didn’t want to let go.

They found a shopping mall and parked the car. Then the two walked to the crowded pedestrian street. Christmas was approaching. The storefronts on both sides of the street were covered with snowflakes and had Merry Christmas written on them. Some of the pedestrians wore bright red Christmas hats and some had glowing antlers. There were people standing on the street touting flowers and various Christmas commodities.
At first, Xue Zi Xuan thought that his extreme mysophobia would make him very anxious in the crowd. He had never liked noisy and crowded places, but when he held the boy in his arms, wrapping him tightly against his chest to prevent strangers from colliding into him, he didn’t feel the slightest discomfort. He only felt a peaceful content. He even hoped that this road would be a little longer, a little longer… It would be even better if the road never ended.
To be honest, Zhou Yun Sheng was very uncomfortable right now. The young man grabbed him from behind, crossed his arms, and hugged his abdomen. The height of 188 centimeters was very oppressive. He was nestled in the other’s arms and forced to follow his steps.
He felt that his back was stuck to the young man’s chest, and the fit was so tight that it affected his movements, which caused him to stumble every few steps. He had to press the weight of his entire body on the young man’s two arms.
It looked like the young man was embracing him, but in actuality the young man was holding him afloat on the street. The feeling of his toes not reaching the ground was not good. Relying on the fact that the young man could not see his expression while embracing him from behind, Zhou Yun Sheng occasionally rolled his eyes, and occasionally curled his lips in displeasure. He really despised this young man’s thirst for skinship. It was like an illness.

On the other side, Xue Zi Xuan was really enjoying it. He spread his two long legs to accommodate the youth in the middle. Sticking close to the boy like glutinous rice cake, they moseyed through the crowd.
“Sir, buy a flower?” A young girl blocked their path. At a glance, she saw the two of them in the crowd. The young man was tall and handsome, his nobility extraordinary. The youth was petite and exquisite, his aura compelling. One of them was drowning the other in love, and one of them was being a tsundere*. Their interaction gave off a harmonious and friendly affectionate air. It made her heart beat fast just looking at them.
[*T/N: Yes, it said tsundere in the raws.]
Finding that the two were getting closer and closer to her, she ran over uncontrollably and peddled her flowers passionately.
“Sorry, we’re not buying flowers.” Zhou Yun Sheng waved his hand and refused.
Xue Zi Xuan was even more straightforward. Without saying a word, he held the teenager and kept going forward. He never acknowledged strangers.
Maybe she wanted to make a sale, or maybe she wanted to say more words to this handsome man and beautiful youth. The young girl diligently caught up with the two. “Don’t like roses? I also have carnations and Chinese bellflowers. In the language of flowers, carnations mean affection and longing, Chinese bellflowers mean desperate and hopeless* love…” At this point, she realized that she said the wrong thing and quickly remedied, “Ah, although it’s desperate, when the bellflower blooms, it indicates that happiness will come again, so it also represents undying and eternal love…”
[*T/N: It’s just one word in the raws, but 绝望 jue wang means both desperation and hopelessness.]
The girl was obviously very knowledgeable about flowers. Once she started talking, she couldn’t stop. Seeing that the two were going faster and faster as if eager to be rid of her, she gave up and stopped unhappily.
But miraculously, Xue Zi Xuan turned his head and in a heavy voice he asked, “What did you say the Chinese bellflower signifies in the language of flowers?”
“Eternal love!” The girl’s eyes brightened, and she immediately took out a bellflower from the flower basket, dangling it in front of the good-looking man.
“Not this. What comes after desperate love?” Xue Zi Xuan stared at her with a burning gaze.
The young girl thought for a moment, and suddenly realized what he meant: “Although Chinese bellflowers represent desperate love, in the legend, when Chinese bellflowers bloom, happiness will come again, so it also represents hope and represents regeneration.”
