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.

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.

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.

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*.”
