Don't Pick Up Boyfriends From the Trash BinCh25 - Getting Rid of that Bigshot (2)

Over the next hour, Chi Xiaochi was extremely busy integrating the data and compiling the information. YULKtG

About half an hour later, the door to the bedroom was pushed open.

The person who entered wasn’t Zhou Kai.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Zhou Kai was out on a business trip in France for these few days. The visitor was a domestic helper.

According to the information provided by 061, he was Spanish, and was called Yi Song axfSVJ

He didn’t know Chinese, just like the chauffeur, the chef and the maid. They had all been instructed not to use English by Zhou Kai. In the house, they were to only use Spanish to converse.

Shen Changqing didn’t know Spanish.

In the beginning, Shen Changqing had taken the initiative to learn a few sentences, but he soon realised that these four people had no interest in responding to any of his questions or requests. Occasionally, they’d even gather together to point out Shen Changqing’s injuries and snigger incessantly.

They’d been working for Zhou Kai for more than twenty years and could be considered long-time servants of the Zhou household. To them, even Su Wenyi’s tragedy was by now unsurprising.

From their point of view, Mister Zhou treated Mister Shen very well. At least compared to how he was with Mister Su, he was much more gentle.

After realising their indifference, Shen Changqing felt that he had nothing to say to such people.

  JnMoKL

But Chi Xiaochi wasn’t the same.

He especially liked talking to such people.

 

Yi Song pushed in a wheelchair. Seeing that the needle had already been pulled out, he paused slightly but didn’t say anything. He helped Chi Xiaochi sit up from the bed and silently replaced the towels fastened around his chest. 0Icqmb

Chi Xiaochi asked, “My IV ran dry an hour ago. Why was there nobody to remove it for me?”

Yi Song ignored him. 

Chi Xiaochi turned to 061, “How do you say that in Spanish?”

061 repeated it in Spanish. Just as he was about to say it a second time for Chi Xiaochi, Chi Xiaochi flawlessly repeated what 061 had said, not a syllable out of place. mJfMYQ

In response to Chi Xiaochi’s question, Yi Song remained silent.

From this, it could be seen how oppressive the environment that Shen Changqing had been living in for three whole years was.

In the entire villa, the only person who could talk to him was, of all people, the person he hated most.

Chi Xiaochi spoke again, in a voice that was neither too fast nor too slow, “If I hadn’t pulled out the needle myself, the IV drip would probably have been half-full with my blood by now.”

Yi Song’s resultant complete lack of concern was within his expectations.

061 once again repeated Chi Xiaochi’s words in Spanish.

This time, the grammar and words used were a little complicated, so Chi Xiaochi had to listen to it twice before being able to repeat it. QCqVfx

Yi Song continued to ignore him and even let out a quick, light laugh, as if he felt like this was something very amusing.

After changing the towels, he dragged Chi Xiaochi up to move him onto the wheelchair.

For the next hour was the time in the sun Zhou Kai had prescribed for Shen Changqing. It couldn’t run even a minute longer or a minute shorter. npgNK1

Chi Xiaochi, who was being shielded from the pain, naturally wouldn’t feel any pain, but Shen Changqing definitely would.

So he raised a protest, “Be a little gentler. It really hurts.”

061 took the initiative to translate that for him. The response they received was still nonexistent.

  pnBFVb

In the next second, Chi Xiaochi once again exceeded 061’s expectations with his next move.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

 

He directly grabbed the soundless clock from the bedside table and clocked Yi Song in the face.

With a crack, the glass face of the clock was smashed into pieces. 3jhE f

Yi Song, who had been hit, and 061, who had watched Yi Song be hit, were both dumbstruck.

Chi Xiaochi said in Spanish, “……Since you don’t understand human speech, can you now understand what ‘it really hurts’ means?”

 

With a hiss, 061 sucked in a breath of cold air. dSfWPw

He thought Chi Xiaochi was in for a beating and had already made his preparations to materialise and knock Yi Song unconscious.

Who knew that upon touching his face and noticing the blood on his hands, the stupefied expression on Yi Song’s face would slacken slightly and even gain a slight hint of fear.

He said in Spanish, “Sorry, Mister Shen.”

061 said, “I’ve shielded you, so you won’t feel any pain.” qQGrfE

Chi Xiaochi asked excitedly, “That means I can move around however I want now?” 

061, “……That means you now have no way of accurately judging the severity of your injuries and need to take it a little easier.”

Chi Xiaochi, “……Oh.”

  K2RTLi

061 asked, “Why did you hit him?”

“Violence isn’t going to solve the problem,” Chi Xiaochi said, “but it can at least be used to deal with idiots.”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

“What if he retaliates? He attends to your daily life. If he were to do a little something……”

“I still have a mouth under this nose of mine. Zhou Kai videocalls me everyday, don’t you think I would tell him?” 37mEic

“Would Zhou Kai care?”

“It’s true that Zhou Kai treats Shen Changqing like a pet he’s raising, but he absolutely wouldn’t allow other people to make a move on his own pet,” As he turned the pages of the book in his hands, he moved his gaze over to Yi Song and the two other servants whispering in a corner of the small garden, “……These people are very clear on that.”

“If they……”

“Let’s bet on it. They won’t dare to say anything. nzcwCM

“Shen Changqing and Su Wenyi were both scared of offending them, and in turn offending Zhou Kai. So they had nothing to fear with Zhou Kai backing them up,” Chi Xiaochi said, “In fact, these kinds of people fear violence the most.”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

 

Off in the distance, only a few isolated phrases from the three people’s conversation drifted over on the wind. They could vaguely hear “madman”, and “he’s gone crazy”.

Without even bothering to raise his head, Chi Xiaochi raised his voice and shouted back in Spanish, “You guys are the real madmen. Three idiots.” 6YKGhr

 

The three people immediately scattered like a flock of startled birds.

Chi Xiaochi sneered.

Cowardice and tyranny, these two traits that were as different as night and day were extremely likely to exist simultaneously in a single individual. pn8rdP

On this point, he’d long been clear.

 

061, “……I didn’t seem to have taught you how to say what you just said.”

Chi Xiaochi turned a page of his book, “Oh, I can speak Spanish.” 74Q1mA

061, “……”

Chi Xiaochi, “The domestic helper my home used to have was also Spanish. She had much more personality than those three. She was really lovely and even taught me quite a few curses.”

061, “……Then in the beginning you made me teach you……”

“Oh, I just wanted to listen to you speak more,” Chi Xiaochi said candidly, “And not to mention, you sound really sexy in Spanish. Let’s change tonight’s book to Spanish poetry.” XOFZ C

061 was silent.

After waiting for a long time but still not getting a response from 061, he let out a “yi”, and called, “Liu-laoshi?”

Chi Xiaochi thought his hiding things and rash advance had made 061 angry.

But soon, 061 responded. uho O6

“It’s nothing,” 061 said, “I went online to download a Spanish poem anthology.”

Chi Xiaochi, “Here I thought you were upset by my fooling around.”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

061 said, “I wouldn’t be.”

He then said, “With me here, you can play around however you want.” N5Rpo9

 

In truth, 061 was actually really a little angry.

He couldn’t understand why Chi Xiaochi was assigned to an A-grade world when he was only on his second task.

He’d consulted all the databases, and after sifting through the enormous amount of data, he’d confirmed that Chi Xiaochi was definitely the first. WcPKCu

In light of recent events, 061 found a point of suspicion:

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

The Lord God said he wanted him to participate in a project.

He was very worried that the current abnormality was him “testing the waters” for that so-called project.

  LEn3Fe

If that was really the case, 061 would rather complete the full set of 200 tasks than take the deal and gamble with Chi Xiaochi’s safety, because once a host logged out, whether voluntarily, their mental energy would acquire quite a bit of damage.

061 remembered helping a colleague cover a shift back when he was on his ninth host.

That host had just been extricated from an ABO world after dying in battle amongst a pile of disgusting Zerg.

When 061 talked to him, his mental state was obviously somewhat muddled and his reactions were delayed. He later heard that the symptoms had only been alleviated after two task worlds. 3OtCp2

 

This A-grade world was far too dangerous. 061 decided to not return to the Lord God’s space for the time being and stay by Chi Xiaochi’s side. He would wait till after the task finished to go find the Lord God and come to an agreement about him withdrawing from the project.

 

Chi Xiaochi laughed, “So good to me?” uIc8r0

061, “You consider just this good? There’s still room for improvement.”

Chi Xiaochi paused for a moment, “Your manner of speaking reminds me of someone.”

061, “En?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

“An especially annoying someone,” Chi Xiaochi said, “They promised they would be good to me for a lifetime, but in the end, they just left. Not at all loyal.” gzyJZ7

061 knew who he was talking about, but didn’t know how to comfort him. He could only say, “Let’s bask in the sun.”

However, Chi Xiaochi said, “I want to use the internet.”

 

Without Zhou Kai’s permission, Shen Changqing couldn’t access the internet. However, with 061, he didn’t need to worry about something like not having internet at all. RYIOMZ

In his mental space, he spent an hour browsing the internet.

061 noticed that the webpages Chi Xiaochi was looking through were all articles on recent hot society news. Some were related to Zhou Kai, but some had nothing to do with him, such as how, in so-and-so place, there had been a □□ to fight for black people’s rights, how there had been a shooting incident in such-and-such place, how an elk had escaped from a zoo in XX place and wandered onto the highway.

Even though he wasn’t very clear on what he was looking through these for, 061 had exceptional faith in Chi Xiaochi.

……Nothing he did was without a purpose taDrCM

 

An hour later, Chi Xiaochi was taken back to his bedroom by the maid.

Another hour later, dinner was served.

Dinner was, despite the circumstances, still very good; a nutritious meal tailored for a patient with broken bones. BJTwOz

Chi Xiaochi sighed, “This old calf supposes this set of dishes was perfected through experience.” 

Read more BL at chrysanthemumgarden.com

He was injured, and naturally couldn’t use chopsticks by himself. Furthermore, in order to beat people up today, he might have exerted enough force to have broken a third rib. Now, he could only depend on a maid to feed him.

Fortunately, the broken clock was still on the headboard, still exerting its presence. The maid put in her best efforts to feed him, fearful of Chi Xiaochi going into a fit of moodiness and smashing a basin of hot soup over her head.

Chi Xiaochi also wasn’t one to make a fuss out of nothing. If the other party was polite to him, he had no reason not to return that politeness. LgRDiX

 

By the time the meal was over, it was already exactly seven o’ clock in the evening.

Zhou Kai’s villa was in Canada, while he himself was in France. There was a time difference of six hours between the two countries.

Of course, Zhou Kai didn’t care whether or not there was a time difference. As long as he wanted to start a video call, Shen Changqing had to pick up, even if it was at three o’ clock in the morning. wF2Srk

But today, he had no time for such whims.

At two-thirty in France time, he needed to attend a very important conference, which was the main purpose of this trip to France.

Chi XIaochi asked 061, “Zhou Kai has the habit of napping, right?”

061, “Yes.” XZJ5I1

Zhou Kai was getting on in age, he didn’t have the energy of a younger person. If he didn’t have an afternoon nap, he would have no energy for the rest of the day.

He would be in an extremely bad mood if woken up, and absolutely did not allow anyone to disturb him. He had the habit of putting his phone on mute, and would even pick up the hotel phone and put it aside, so as to avoid being awakened by room service.

However, he was incredibly self-disciplined. Every nap would never exceed half an hour. He could be said to have an automatic alarm constitution.

He then asked, “Can skill cards be used at such a distance?” PVJZ2p

061, “Yes.”

Chi Xiaochi turned his head, and looked at the little clock whose face he’d smashed. It showed that it was 7:05.

“Low-grade hypnosis card, the one that lasts an hour. Use it on him now.”

  LWzdSN

About one hour later.

In a black MPV on the streets of Paris, Zhou Kai sat in the backseat, his expression extremely ugly.

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

He growled in English, “Hurry up!”

The driver had a face full of helplessness, “Boss, there’s a strike up ahead……” 8SBqKr

Zhou Kai clenched his teeth, “Go around.”

The driver turned the car into a little side street.

The assistant sitting next to him didn’t even dare to take too deep of a breath for fear that the sound of his breathing would call Zhou Kai to turn his attention to himself.

Zhou Kai’s face was ashen, and his fists were clenched so tightly they itched. VTORqd

When he’d woken up in the hotel room, and turned on his cell phone, he’d even thought that he’d misread the time.

Upon getting a good look at the time, he directly shot out of bed. After his call to his assistant went through, the first thing that came out of his mouth was a roar, “Where are you?!”

The assistant stood in front of the meeting place where the attendees were pouring in one after another, in a cold sweat, “Sir, where are you? I knocked on your door, but you didn’t reply, and when I tried to contact you, you didn’t respond. I even thought you’d gone to the meeting place with Mister Sam in advance……” 3pEG0x

 

No matter how upset Zhou Kai got, the facts couldn’t be denied: As an important person in the meeting, he was close to thirty minutes late.

When Zhou Kai entered the meeting room, the meeting had not yet begun in order to wait for him.

Being under the attentive gaze of the investors, he was very upset on the inside, but still pretended to be cheery, laughing, “I remembered the time wrongly, haha.” 94ZbDM

The assistant’s heart skipped a beat.

Before he came in, he’d clearly warned Zhou Kai again and again to just directly apologise, no need to provide a reason.

He had done an investigation beforehand and found that two of the investors attending the meeting were both famous in the industry for their strong views on timeliness.

Even though they wouldn’t make a fuss for the sake of the short-term benefits, what the company was aiming for was long-term collaboration. If Zhou Kai had this kind of “hee hee ha ha” attitude, after another year, when they wanted to talk about cooperating again, he was afraid the other party would harbour doubt in their hearts.  xhN93M

In conclusion, Zhou Kai still loved face, and was unwilling to admit his wrongs in front of everybody.

 

When Zhou Kai was young, he still knew how to restrain himself. After turning 45, when his position in the industry stabilised, his mouth became more loose. He often spoke freely in public. He even once talked at length about his and his partner Shen Changqing’s X life, and compared him with his predecessor. That magazine report was also bold, directly sending it out and arousing a huge wave of controversy.

If you're reading this, this translation is stolen. Please support our translators at chrysanthemumgarden.com

Some people praised him for his daring, and some questioned him for his sensationalism. hgIi93

But in any case, his familiarity in the public consciousness rose sharply, sending the attention paid to his company and his stocks soaring.

 

Zhou Kai prepared to take his seat. Sam helped him pull out a chair.

Zhou Kai had no heirs, so this Mister Sam was the successor that Zhou Kai had single-handedly trained. Only 35 years old this year, he could be called a promising young man. HO4DQV

But not long after he sat down, Sam found something wrong with Zhou Kai.

He whispered, “Mister Zhou, what’s……”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Zhou Kai’s eyelids closed, and his body slid downwards without stopping.

Sam was shocked, “Oh my god, Mister Zhou!!”  TfQOym

 

Thousands of li away, Chi Xiaochi laid in bed, and said to 061, “Check for me, after Zhou Kai fainted, how did that Sam react?”

He had just used another card, this time a vertigo card, and was currently waiting for his test results.

Soon, 061 gave his response, “……That Sam showed great concern for Zhou Kai.” BvnZdf

Chi Xiaochi said, “Continue your observation. Everything he shows in the presence of other people doesn’t count.”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

 

Zhou Kai was taken to the hospital by an ambulance. In the ruckus, no one noticed Sam quietly slipping into the hospital toilet.

As he opened all the toilet cubicles one by one, he sent texts to several people, “……Mister Zhou suddenly fainted and was admitted to the hospital. The cause is currently under investigation. For the time being, block the news and don’t allow the media to catch wind of this.” UNhA4M

After that, he then called two other people. “Send some news to the media companies we’re familiar with. Say that an ambulance entered a certain French conference centre, according to leaks from the centre staff, it is suspected that a sudden, serious illness broke out in the Chinese-Canadian Zhou Kai and the cause is unknown……”

 

A low-grade card that only had an hour of effectiveness was used for a preliminary test to see how deep the waters of Zhou Kai’s company ran.

At least, that Mister Sam was not as deeply grateful for Mister Zhou’s promotion as he seemed to be. fNKATR

 

The author has something to say:

Xiaochi: Setting traps makes me happy.jpg


baum: watching CXC set traps makes me happy~ I like rereading this novel with the added knowledge of what he’s going to do heh heh It’s fun watching how he slowly sets up his traps

Translator's Note

It’s actually in Chinese which might mean it’s meant to be a Chinese name, bc all the names that were meant to be in English tend to be written in English in this novel. And @kaizukass pointed out that he could just be of Chinese descent, so he could have a Chinese name but not know Chinese. Hence, we decided to keep it in Chinese

Translator's Note

lit. drew a gourd from the model, fig. To copy sth mechanically without attempt at originality

I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist the pun 😂

  1. Watching CXC set traps makes me happy~ +1
    Chi Xiaochi’s smartness can’t be measured by our measly selves! And that comment about Liuliu’s voice being sexy when speaking in Spanish makes me really want to hear it!

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  2. WahahahahahahaHA! Great Master Chi go for it!

    Thanks for the chapter!

  3. watching CXC set traps makes me happy~ +10

    Let the revenge times roll on o(≧∇≦o)

    • “And not to mention, you sound really sexy in Spanish.”
      XD

  4. Normally I don’t condone violence but those people really had it coming, gj CXC.

    Also I wanted to comment, as a latin american person myself, the reason the staff has Chinese names is maybe bc they’re Chinese descendants that lived in Spanish speaking countries before? Hence why they have Chinese names but can’t speak the language, it’s not that unusual. That and Ethan isn’t really a Spanish name either :|a Yi Song sounds more like Jason? Which is a name I’ve seen more frequently in my country but can’t really speak for others.

    Anyway, thanks a lot for the new chapter!!!

    • Hmm alright then, I’ll change it back to Yi Song tomorrow. ZK having staff of Chinese descent might actually make sense bc of his yellow fever lol (is it considered yellow fever if the guy himself is part chinese? hmm)

      Thanks~

  5. Another great words from a sage: “Violence isn’t going to solve the problem,” Chi Xiaochi said, “but it can at least be used to deal with idiots.” 👏👏

    A bit worried that CXC is already using the trial card now, I know that it’s for experimenting something but I’m afraid that he will run out of it fast, because the Goodwill points are so limited in this harsh world. Well, gotta believe in him more. Thanks for the translation.

  6. My Xi Xiachi is so smart. ✺ (^ ▽ ^ ✺) ✺ (^ O ^) ✺ (✺ ^ ▽ ^) ✺

  7. I read this right away because I was so worried. I just have to keep repeating to myself “a problem that can be solved by a kitchen knife isn’t really a problem” until I’ve brainwashed myself.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK !!!!!!

  8. If this quality doesn’t deteriorate, this novel surely is qualified to sit with QWFOD ranking.
    I really like how the author’s pacing is going and how it explains CXC’s actions in a micro level, as opposed to QWFOD’s. I feel more intimate with CXC than with ZYS (because CXC and Liu-laoshi has more banter scenes)

  9. He thought Chi Xiaochi was in for a beating and had already made his preparations to materialise and knock Yi Song unconscious.

    Kiyaaaaaaa Liu-laoshi is soooo caring! Where can i find one? 😍😍😍😍😍😍 also,Liu-laoshi’s sexy voice~~~~~

  10. If everything were in Spanish, I would not need to use the Google translator :C

  11. I think my comment got almost all of it deleted so gonna post another to say what I wanted to say. There was something bothering me in this chapter, the time difference is six hours between France and Canada, but when it’s 7 PM in Canada, it’s actually 1 AM in France, and not 1 PM. So this chapter really was weird for me to read, as it didn’t make sense at all >.<

  12. CXC is in aggressive/attacking mode! What a deep mindset….how did he learn to think so deep?…Ah, why did I not realized? Anything can happened in the novel…

    Oho! Let’s see how Mister Big shot felr after he wakes up? And the sneaky Mister Sam?…..

    Thanks for another chapter!

  13. The plot of this novel is really awesome but my little heart is breaking here with these abusive and sadistic animals 😭😭 ever since we found out that sadistic brain upstairs is purposely trying to ruin people lives to collect negative energy, I knew that this was going to be a way more sad and serious web novel than I first thought😭

  14. 35 is a young man, but 45 is old? Who would have a successor only 10 years younger?

    I’m so looking forward to this😈

  15. Solo puedo decir esto porque mi lengua materna es español, así que sé lo difícil que es para las demás personas que hablan otros idiomas imitar los fonemas y acentos en nuestro lengua. Es IMPOSIBLE, que el muy puto haya hablado perfecto español a la primera porque la forma hablar es muy diferente y hay palabras y pronunciaciones que no existen en chino, ni siquiera en inglés. En serio, ahí hay un horrible error de la autora por mi parte. Eso no es posible, abajo se los dejo en inglés para que lo lean.

    I can only say this because my mother tongue is Spanish, so I know how difficult it is for other people who speak other languages ​​to imitate the phonemes and accents in our language. It is IMPOSSIBLE, that mother fucker has spoken perfect Spanish at first because the way of speaking is very different and there are words and pronunciations that do not exist in Chinese, not even in English. Seriously, there is a horrible mistake from the author on my part. That is not possible, above I leave this is Spanish.

  16. When I was in high school, I had a friend named “Ana,” who was from Argentina. Her parents had immigrated from Taiwan to Argentina, and she spent her summers learning Chinese. As such, she was trilingual, which I was always pretty impressed by.

  17. I’m hoping we never meet Zhou Kai face to face. Maybe CXC can handle him remotely, haha. Thanks for the translation!

  18. I want to show love but ur love is greater which means I can’t comment everytime especially when I’m bing reading. Wish for love sign under the chapter. Thank you bye.
