Chapter 100 – Mutual Understanding

Duan Shu Tong and Xi Duan were both trying to create an even cozier atmosphere between the two of them. To that end, conversing was the fastest and most effective method.

“Are you spending the Mid-Autumn Festival with Xi Yu?” Duan Shu Tong asked.

Xi Duan nodded, “En.”

Duan Shu Tong then asked, “Did you buy him a present?”

Xi Duan was a little uncomfortable. “I have to buy [him] a present?” Speaking about this topic, it seemed like he really hadn’t gotten Xi Yu many gifts.

It was the Xi family’s style to be like this. As a child and up until now, Xi Duan had never received any gifts from his elders, so he never thought of buying gifts for Xi Yu.

Support the translator. Read this on:

When Duan Shu Tong saw the expression on Xi Duan’s face, he knew what it was about. In fact, there were times when children were happy to receive gifts, not because of the gift itself, but because receiving a gift made them feel loved.

“The two of you haven’t seen each other for so long. If you bring a present with you when you get back, he should be very happy.”

Xi Duan open-mindedly accepted Duan Shu Tong’s guidance and he even conscientiously asked for advice, “Then what kind of present should I give him?”

“Try to think about what you liked when you are his age.” While saying this, Duan Shu Tong searched on his phone for: what gifts do teenage boys like.

Like a straight man* Xi Duan responded, “I didn’t have anything I liked.”

[*T/N: 直男 zhi nan – “straight man,” can be used in the literal sense for a man’s sexual orientation, but nowadays it mostly refers to a man who is too rational and inflexible, and don’t know how to read a woman’s mind, or in other words, it’s the stereotype of a clueless man.]

Duan Shu Tong: “…” That’s right. Xi Duan was struggling through such a difficult time back then. When would he have the free time to consider something like what he liked?

Duan Shu Tong’s heart was aching for Xi Duan again.

“Then do you have something that you like right now?” He asked.

Xi Duan looked at him silently and said nothing.

The man’s eyes did not seem as sharp as they usually were. His thick and long eyelashes drooped slightly, making him appear innocent and pitiful.

Duan Shu Tong thought to himself when you like someone your rose-tinted lenses towards them was really too powerful.

He quickly changed the subject, “Why don’t you ask Uncle Sun what Xi Yu likes.”

Xi Duan was often away from home and didn’t get to spend much time with Xi Yu, so it did seem like he didn’t care for Xi Yu. There was no point in arguing about this. But from now on, he could slowly make up for past negligence.

Xi Duan nodded and sent Uncle Sun a text message.

Uncle Sun very happily replied: The young master liked to play basketball. The basketball that he bought before is old now. And since starting school again, he has been very studious, so he has not gone out to buy a new one.

Uncle Sun painted a very clear path without outright saying it. He was really impressive!

Duan Shu Tong complimented Uncle Sun in his heart and said, “When we get to Yan City, I’ll go with you to buy a basketball.”

The all-powerful President Xi, who usually had to manage all sorts of things, did not think that there was anything wrong with this. He replied without any doubt or hesitation, “Okay.”

When the train arrived in Yan City, Xi Duan went over to the girl who had changed seats with him to help her take down her luggage. Then he came back to rendezvous with Duan Shu Tong.

The aisle in the train was narrow, so they could only walk in a single file, following the flow of people out of the train. Every so often, Duan Shu Tong would look back, smile, and talk to Xi Duan. The man responded back gently each time.

From across the crowd, the girl who changed seats with Xi Duan could not help but to snap a photo on her cell phone. After getting off the train, she excitedly sent the picture to her class’s group chat. She said excitedly, “I saw two handsome men on the high-speed rail!”

“I didn’t believe it at first, but after opening the photo I received a pleasant surprise, awsl*.”

[*T/N: Awsl is an internet buzzword, a pinyin acronym for “啊我死了” (ah I’m dead), commonly used to describe the excitement of seeing something cute.]

“O. M. G. So handsome! The two of them are completely different types, but they both look so good!”

“So… so lovely…”

“Hey, why does he seem a little familiar? Hey sisters, you’re all using Spring Flower No. 1. You really don’t think something is familiar?”

After the girl finished speaking, she posted a photo of a young man on a bicycle to the group chat.

The group chat froze.

The girl who changed seats with Xi Duan dug through her old memories. She thought back to how she went with the flow and talked bad about the Spring and Autumn Hall. After the Spring and Autumn Hall’s reputation went up, she became a die-hard fan of Big Shot* Duan. It’s not that she has never seen this picture before, but the real person was truly a hundred times more handsome than the one in the photo!

[*T/N: 大佬 – big shot; as in someone that is leading a field or group]

She sighed in regret. She actually didn’t recognize Duan Shu Tong from start to finish!

The group chat picked up again.

“I didn’t expect such a big shot to be taking the high-speed rail. Moreover, it’s a second-class seat.”

The girl who changed seats with Xi Duan shared what happened on the train. She told her classmates how she exchanged seats with one of them and how the man helped her with her luggage. Finally she concluded her statement with: “Ahhhhhhhh, Big Shot Duan and his friend are both so polite. I’m making an announcement. From today on, I am his die-hard fan. No regrets for life!”

Unexpectedly, someone posted this photo on the Internet and caused a heated discussion to rise up.

The author has something to say:

There are some things that you don’t need to say for other people to know.
