……The final diagnosis was a severe tear of the Achilles tendon. NM5Pm8

The coach comforted him, saying, it’s okay, take a year off, rebuild, practice, who hasn’t had an injury before.

But Dong Ge saw the deep sorrow in the coach’s eyes.

This sorrow shattered Dong Ge.

YdKg5R

Over the next few days, no matter who it was that came, he wasn’t willing to talk. Even Lou Sifan received this treatment.

Faced with Dong Ge’s cold expression, Lou Sifan said especially gently, “I know you’re not feeling well. If you don’t want to see me, I’ll come back again in a few days.”

 

Maybe because of him being particularly sensitive due to his injury, in this interaction with Lou Sifan, Dong Ge realised many details he had never noticed before. tsEXCP

——Lou Sifan was too gentle.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

He was gentle to the point of almost being false, as if he could accept all of Dong Ge’s nasty behaviour, his willfulness, his arrogance, his reticence.

In the past, Dong Ge thought that gentleness was an incredibly wonderful characteristic.

He had never gotten angry, never criticised Dong Ge for his faults, never bickered with him, never quarreled. He simply couldn’t be a more perfect lover. CBkvnN

But, when he thought about it carefully, a lover who never quarreled, never got jealous, never showed his temper, was that really a lover?

Even at this kind of time, Lou Ge still comforted him gently, even-temperedly, simply as if he was using gentleness to coldly push him away, and draw a line of “we aren’t familiar” between them.

 

The third day after Dong Ge entered the hospital, He Changsheng, who had just finished up with his own competition, came to visit him. AQ78Mr

There was dissatisfaction in He Changsheng’s tone, “How did you get yourself like this.”

Dong Ge looked at him. In a hoarse voice, he asked, “What about Lou-ge, did he not come with you?”

He Changsheng turned cold. From the sound of his voice, he was truly angry now. “Can he keep walking this path with you forever? You should think about what you need to be be doing now.”

Upon hearing this, Dong Ge was suddenly overcome with a sense of grievance and sourness. dRJlf8

He said in a small voice, “He can.”

After saying those two words, he then spoke to himself, asking, “……Can he?”

He Changsheng furrowed those two beautiful, willow-like brows. “Hmm?”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

  bpn2 k

That was the first time Dong Ge bared his soul to He Changsheng and spoke so much to him.

He spoke about the love between him and Lou Sifan and confessed his jealousy towards He Changsheng. By the end, he couldn’t suppress his emotions any longer, wringing the corner of the bedsheet between his hands as he began to sob quietly.

……I’m jealous, I’ve sinned, I’m impulsive, but do I truly deserve this kind of punishment?

After He Changsheng heard everything, he seemed a little abnormal. “Is that how it is? ……He’s never said anything to me before.”  tVXGD

For a moment, Dong Ge couldn’t quite understand. “……What?”

He Changsheng said, “I’ve always thought of him as a friend, and I also thought you were just a junior he was taking care of.”

He then asked, “When did you two get together? Lou-ge never mentioned it to me, that you and him……”

After all, in the context of this society, homosexuals were still a minority, and couldn’t be discussed freely in public, under the rays of the sun.

And Dong Ge had a restrained personality, and wasn’t the type who liked to perform big gestures of love in front of others.

But he’d always thought that He Changsheng knew. dzditZ

 

If Lou Sifan had never mentioned it, what did these five years even count as?

If he never mentioned it, why did he have to be so jealous and hateful of an utterly ignorant He Changsheng?

  BogZn4

Seeing Dong Ge remain silent, He Changsheng breathed out a sigh, and said bluntly, “I understand. From now on, I’ll maintain an appropriate distance from Lou-ge, I hope you won’t mind.”

 

He Changsheng left, leaving behind a stunned Dong Ge on his own in the hospital ward.

About half an hour later, Lou Sifan called. a6ENxm

With great effort, Dong Ge picked up the phone.

The phone was still the one Dong Ge had flipped the wall to buy. It was of very good quality, and Dong Ge was the sentimental type, so he kept using it all the way until now.

Lou Sifan’s number, was the first one entered inside, and was the only number entered inside.

He answered the phone, “Hello.” FiGHMo

The person on the other end was frenzied with anger. “Why did you have to say those things to him? Didn’t I tell you not to? Are you trying to destroy me?”

Dong Ge paused. “……Who are you?”

 

For a time, Dong Ge actually couldn’t recognise whose voice this was. JESdxO

 

After that, Lou Sifan said a lot of things, as if he was concentrating all the anger that he hadn’t let out in those five years into this one hour, turning it into invisible bullets and pelting Dong Ge with them.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

 

In this call, Lou Sifan spoke truthfully and with a soul-piercing pain, “You should thank Changsheng. He was bullied when he was younger, so he has a shadow in his heart. I only protected you because of him. And you? When you were younger, I helped you so much, protected you, and you repay me like this?” YMXKo3

 

Dong Ge had always thought that Lou Sifan just didn’t like him enough.

But he had never thought that Lou Sifan didn’t even regard him as a person, but just as a useful tool.

——When he was younger, he was the pitiful child Lou Sifan used to curry favour with He Changsheng, to express his kindness and compassion. P8aJeV

——After he grew up, he was just a useful, free blow-up doll.

From Lou Sifan’s accusations, it seemed that Dong Ge had truly destroyed Lou Sifan, destroyed the “friendship” he had carefully maintained for so many years.

Lou Sifan liked He Changsheng so much that he came up with all kinds of plans to make him like him. RJaMEC

He Changsheng, who projected his emotions onto Dong Ge, noticed the bullied Dong Ge, so Lou Sifan also began to notice him in turn.

He originally just wanted to be a good big brother, and take good care of Dong Ge, this “little brother”. He’d never expected that one night of drunkenness would result in him riding a tiger in a daze.

It was Dong Ge who had harmed Lou Sifan, forcing him to make such a difficult choice. It was Dong Ge who forced him to make a choice between his morals and He Changsheng.

Because of his “responsibility”, he “made a sacrifice” and got together with Dong Ge, in order to “make up for his mistake”. JFL107

He also knew that this “wouldn’t give Dong Ge true happiness”, but he didn’t want to become a Chen Shimei, so while he wanted to break up but couldn’t, and could only constantly give him “kind reminders” to let him know just how good He Changsheng was to hint to Dong Ge to retreat in the face of difficulty

 

And only a fool like Dong Ge would try to advance despite difficulty, unwilling to retreat even in the face of death.

  ZJDsck

After hearing one after another of his “reasonable”, “upright”, solemnly-worded and forceful complaints, Dong Ge didn’t even have the energy to get angry.

He lay on the bed, his voice so calm that he shocked even himself, “If you didn’t like me, then why didn’t you say so earlier.”

On the other end of the phone, Lou Sifan said, “Wasn’t I constantly reminding you?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Following that, he then said in a voice full of bitterness, “I’ve already taken responsibility for you, could it be this still isn’t enough for you? You need to consider my feelings, too.” n9d5AH

 Dong Ge said weakly, “But you were so good to me…… You were always praising me, telling me  that this part of me was good and that part of me was good……”

 Could it be that even those were all fake?

Lou Sifan said, “I did say those things, but those were just ordinary compliments, that’s all. You thought too much. Think about it, from beginning to end, did I ever say a single “I love you” to you?”

  f9csv7

Dong Ge fell silent.

A moment later, he whispered, “Okay. I understand.”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

He politely hung up the phone.

From the age of 11 to now, a full 12 years of expectation and worship had turned into an illusion in a mere hour. NCseQ2

12 years. To Dong Ge, that was already half his lifetime.

Now that everything had already been said, Dong Ge was not going to pester him over and over, begging to reconcile.

He wasn’t that lowly. Since the man had no feelings for him, he would give up.

  LFmw3D

As he comforted himself like this, he laid down on his pillow, turning the pillowcase dark with big drop after big drop of tears.

……Why did it hurt so much.

……Even tearing his Achilles tendon didn’t hurt as much as this.

Dong Ge hurt so much he couldn’t breathe. He clenched the chest area of his hospital gown in a death grip and murmured comforts to himself. MKbp74

……It’s okay, it’s okay, without him, I still have ice-skating.

 

A year later, Dong Ge, already suffering from a severe case of anxiety disorder, returned to the ice rink.

But with the after effects of the severe tear of his Achilles tendon, as well as his restless state of mind, made it so that he could no longer find that state from the year before. vB9onM

He tried six movements in a row, and all of them failed.

He knelt on the ice and bawled like a child.

Not a single one of those teammates who had mocked his arrogance could remain unmoved, but in this crowd of people, there wasn’t a Lou Sifan.

……He never even gave Dong Ge another look. FswLld

 

Half a year later, Dong Ge, who was staying in the psychiatric ward, found an ice rink that belonged to him in his daze. He broke the thin ice, and fell into the decorative lake.

 

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

Chi Xiaochi pulled himself out of Dong Ge’s last memories before his death. He turned back and looked at the decorative pond behind him. ZVWGd7

The decorative lake that had become Dong Ge’s final resting place wasn’t like this pond. It hadn’t been very deep. If at that time, Dong Ge had still had the slightest desire to live, if he poured just a little bit of strength into his legs and stood up, he would have been fine.

 

He undid his bun. A head of thick black hair was blown up by the wind. This hair that was dark as night contrasted even better with his snow-white skin, making him look like a little girl.

Chi Xiaochi wiped his face. He said, seriously, “Fuck his uncle.”  s8lQbv

061 was in utter agreement. “En.”

 

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Just at that moment, a pair of leather shoes entered Chi Xiaochi’s vision.

Someone asked in a soft voice, “Dong Ge? Is that you?” 7 4AQE

Chi Xiaochi entered his acting state in seconds.

He raised his head, his gaze like that of the young Dong Ge, melancholic yet alert.

The man before him was a handsome young man, with naturally good looks, possessing red lips and phoenix eyes, yet having a unique air of uprightness and elegance, making one feel good just by looking at him.

Noticing Dong Ge’s questioning gaze, the man extended his hand, and said in a refined and courteous manner, “I’m Dong Feihong. If you don’t mind, you can call me uncle.” wlg2FA

The author has something to say:

The kind of scum male Fake Lou is, is very good at confusing others.

He’s especially good with sweet speech and honeyed words (hypocritical flattery), and can guess exactly what you want to hear. When in a relationship, he can always make his partner very happy. DqpkI9

When he has to admit his mistakes, his tongue becomes even more slippery, able to promptly reflect on himself, and having a good attitude.

Typical characteristics of this kind of selfish white lotus scum are:

One, when in a relationship, the only thing he can offer is his words.

Two, it’s especially easy for him to move himself. vClynd

When breaking up, he’ll also be like this, all the mistakes are yours, he’s nothing but a pure and innocent white lotus.


baum: just. fk you, lou sifan.

sere: what an ass. But also why is uncle so handsome seems like an important chara

panda: You know it’s an important character when he’s handsome XD t6cNVn

Translator's Note

lit. river that divides Chu and Han

Translator's Note

chinese opera character, byword for heartless and unfaithful man

Translator's Note

that his feelings towards him would never work out

Translator's Note

it’s just a form of swearing, like fuck your mother/grandmother/father etc. He uses 大爷 here, which means father’s older brother, but can also mean self-centered show-off, so it’s like a double scolding

  1. 🔪🔪🔪 Stabs Sifan. ⛏⛏⛏ Buries Sifan. Worries about the soil that’ll be dirtied by Sifan. 🤬🤬🤬 Fuck, the worst thing is not that h broke up or even lied. He pushed him to try difficult maneuvres knowing his character and possibly expecting him to be injured. It’s not enough for you to take his love, occupy his life, you even have to take away the only thing that gives him joy in his life? FUCK YOU LOU SIFAN. Also, can I please not have that uncle be the Fake Replacement that pig brain sent? I have reached my limit for TRASH. Grrr! Anyway, thanks for the chapter~ (~ ̄▽ ̄)~
  2. This story just stabs you without any mercy. But is also very truthful, there are so many people, who are so bad at picking up human emotions and fail at human interations miserably, for whom a little bit of sunshine turns out their best dream but also the worst nightmare.

    Poor baby Dong Ge.

  3. Oh man oh man, I thought I was in love with this story up till now, but now? It’s so brutally written, so very clear what kind of person Lou Sifan is, all just from a handful of words, of behaviors. I just, I love everything about this chapter so much. I know I should be worried re the developments in this arc, but just seeing ally Sifan illustrated like this, revealed as this particular kind of slime, is almost satisfying enough.

    Thanks for the chapter <3

  4. …….I’m so speechless and mad. How can you want someone to back off from the relationship but you unwilling to tell your partner about your feeling? Where is your logic bicch!

    That scum man never say anything back but he dare to think if he always praising He Changsheng, Dong Ge will retreat! In the end he didn’t want to be blamed but he blamed Dong Ge for everything. Seriously, dude, are you sane?

    You’re the first one who start all of it and now you blaming him?! He even willing receive an ‘amateur’ like you, endure the pain and you still blaming him for everything?! If you don’t want to be a relationship with him, why you still sleep with him tho?!

    Fck, I’m so mad and I really want punch his face. This fake white lotus make me so sick.

  5. I KNEW IT.

    fuck everything.

    dong ge should snatch han changsheng like han-ge is the tiara at a miss america pageant.

    i mean. not like- lsf but like platonically.

    and become his trusted pampered junior. who needs to be saved from a blackened lsf.

    i bet cxc can act a better white lotus bitch than lousifuckhole.

    thank you for the translation. i am BURNING FOR THE COUNTERATTACK.

  6. That scum doesn’t even deserve to have HCS as a friend, hmph. Steal him away, CXC!!!! Let that scum experience what it is like to have his white moonlight look at him like he’s the trash he is UvU.

    Ohoho, handsome uncle time~. Thanks for the chapter!

  7. LSF is pure s c u m ! Istg HCS doesn’t deserve such trash even as a friend! Hopefully, CXC can bring DG closer to HCS even if they don’t get together. I’m not sure after what LSF did, DG is really in a state to get into a relationship.

    Anyway, got my eyes out for the suspiciously good looking uncle who may or may not end up important. High chance that the dude is part of pig brain’s plan since there wasn’t an uncle mentioned originally.

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

    • Yo!

      Did you forget that pig brain’s move was only related to LSF (being a Lou-ge, gentle and other things similar to CXC’s Lou-ge) and 061 said that since that 🐖 brain was going against the rules he would also do the same, that is the npc he said another chapter (puppet)

  8. I kind of want Chi Xiaochi to become He Changsheng‘s close junior and match make him and the uncle. Let Lu Sifan suffer by watching them all live well without him, especially as he’s not willing to go further with He Changsheng just watching and using Dong Ge.

  9. I need to read something happy (/_;)

    and that was panda note, if he is handsome, he is an important character (≧∇≦)

    Thank you for the chapter (/◕ヮ◕)/

  10. Scum man Lou shite deserves to die 🔪🔪🔪🔪. He even tried to manipulate it all on baby Ge. 🤬🤬🤬🤬 I feel like that “Handsome Uncle” was sent by ugly pig brained to try and make baby Ge lose. Die stupid Lou shite. Hoping Lou shite gets a life worse than death or zuo to death.

  11. Lou Sifan is the kind of man I hate the most! Even more than last arc’s scum gong! Men who take advantage of their juniors and then throw them away are worse than trash. It’s even worse when they blame the whole relationship on the younger one. Poor Dong Ge. 🙁 Yes, he was arrogant, but he was only a child! No one gave him the chance to know better.

  12. I cried so much because of this chapter. I’m so sorry and sad for you, Dong Ge. You deserve better. Much better. And I very much look forward to Chi Xiaochi’s moves to make that bastard pay. Revenge is such a sweet and lovely thing, after all.

  13. don’t worry folks, that scum gets what he deserves and Dong gets his redacted for spoilers…. 😄😘

  14. This Scum is truly hateful. Yeah, you want to break with him, but then you keep string him along. Hypocrite.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  15. Ouch, I already have an inkling it’d be related to ice-skating injury, but…. Fuck. Chichi baby, please burn that fucking piece of scum hard.

  16. Fk u lou-jerk-fan. How dare he do that?!!! I cant believe this… Urrghh i wanna choke, no, drown him to death 😡

    Aye! handsome uncle trigerred!

  17. I’m binging this right now but can i say that this author is truly doing her part for society in letting us recognise what sort of scums should be thrown out the door once we see the symptoms? Boys and Girls, let’s listen to this big sister.

  18. Now work your plan CXC! Make that trash labelled LSF know his place, he belongs in the garbage dump. Get close to HCS, have a relationship with him and let him experience sufferings greater than what the pitiful original get. Thanks for the translation.
