Don't Pick Up Boyfriends From the Trash BinCh58 - Love Song on Ice (15)

translator: baumkuchen  editors: serefina, glitterypanda

Another two and a half years passed since Dong Ge and He Changsheng started living together. R4UkGE

The year before, Dong Ge hadn’t been able to celebrate the New Year at home, as he was participating in a competition at that time, so this year’s New Year’s celebration was especially lively.

The house had been renovated, with a floor-length window added to the dining room. Heavy snow piled on the steps outside, but it was as warm as spring in the area enclosed by the four walls.

There were dumplings stuffed with pork and Chinese onion filling rolling up and down in the boiling aluminum pot; the steamed pork was suffused with a caramel shine, the meigancai was dark, fresh and delicious, and the aroma of the meat juices drew out the full mellow and rich flavour of the meigancai, perfectly complementing one another; the freshly harvested oysters were fleshy and plump, the fishy taste of the minerals perfectly covered by ginger ale. 615YdW

This marvelous, abundant table full of delicacies was entirely prepared by Dong Feihong.

There weren’t many people participating in this family dinner, with only four people present: Mister Dong, Madam Dong, Dong Ge, and Dong Feihong.

Madam Dong, face flushed entirely red, helped pick out food for Dong Ge as Dong Ge had a drink with Mister Dong.

Dong Ge was very good at holding his alcohol, so when Mister Dong’s face was red and ears were flushed, there was only a bit of an alluring flush on Dong Ge’s cheeks and his eyes were still bright, clear and quiet.

Since this was a family dinner, it was naturally inevitable that they would talk about personal matters during the dinner.

Madam Dong asked with a giggle, “Xiao Ge, has anyone caught your eye recently?”

Dong Ge said, “I’m training every day, where would I have the time to think about this kind of thing?” KXSe g

Madam Dong winked. “Don’t play dumb with your mother, if you like someone, just tell Mom.”

Dong Ge, “How would I.”

Madam Dong simply made her words more direct. “Do you like men or women?”

  sypDmO

This world was different from the previous one. Society’s acceptance of homosexuals was considerably so-so. Madam Dong being able to ask such a question truly gave Dong Ge a bit of a shock.

And soon after, Madam Dong gave her reason. “What’s with that look? For better or for worse, our family runs a skating rink. Most of the time, it’s boys bringing other boys to skate with them. Over these past few years, how many times has Mom accompanied you overseas? What western scenery have I not seen?”

Dong Ge was surprised. “……Why did you suddenly think of this?”

It was true that Dong Ge had always been gay, but how did Madam Dong pick up on this? kMaobe

 Madam Dong had a face that read “Brat, your mother’s guessed correctly, hasn’t she”. “Is that person surnamed He?”

 

Chi Xiaochi, “……” Hah?

Madam Dong said, “The last time I went to visit you, I bumped into a female teammate of yours, so we chatted a little. She said that there was a person who would always come to the side of the rink to watch you practice, and every time he came, your jumps would become particularly energised. Whichever jump was the most fancy, you’d jump it. She said it really enthusiastically, so I went to go listen around. Originally I thought it was a girl, but I never expected……”

 

Chi Xiaochi, “……Liu-laoshi, Liu-laoshi. Is this true?”

During training, Chi Xiaochi had always handed complete control of his body back to Dong Ge, leaving him free to do as he wished. He hadn’t expected that the boy would actually use this opportunity to show his feelings. bFwa0r

061, “……It’s true.”

Chi Xiaochi held up his wine cup. “……I taught him for so long, only to bring up a little peacock who knows how to show off his tail in the end.”

061 laughed.

Ever since he received that last subtle signal, 061 had begun to pay special attention to what was going on in Dong Ge’s body. yX1b4F

Sure enough, there was yet another reaction this time.

If 061 hadn’t felt wrongly, the signal he received this time read “blushing”.

 

Seeing Dong Ge remain silent, Madam Dong couldn’t resist continuing her preaching, “If you like men, that’s fine, it’s not like it’s anything bad. If you were to be like your uncle, playing at some kind of celibacy, that would be troublesome. When you get old and your body is injured, who will take care of you?” xIXHd2

Dong Feihong, who had been named for no reason, immediately turned cautious, lowering his head and obediently eating his food, yet at the same time winking at Dong Ge over his bowl of rice.

After the meal, Madam Dong washed the dishes, Mister Dong wiped the table, and Dong Ge was chased off to go watch TV.

After changing the channel to China Central Television, he pulled on his coat and walked out the door. mbXKaV

 

He found Dong Feihong smoking by the side of the skating rink.

Over the rink was a bright red banner: To congratulate Dong Ge on entering the national team, the rink will be free for seven days.

The training venue was still up to the provincial team. If there was an important competition, they would gather together for intensive training.

After the New Year, they would be flying to Finland to prepare for the World Figure Skating Championship practice session in three months.

Upon seeing him, Dong Feihong casually waved away the smoke, planning on extinguishing his cigarette. N2hQnz

Chi Xiaochi said, “No need.”

He stepped forward and placed his open palm in front of Dong Feihong.

Dong Feihong, knowing what he meant, dug out his cigarette box from his chest pocket. “Can you smoke?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Chi Xiaochi pulled one out from the middle and placed it in his mouth. “A little.” wCjKFg

Dong Feihong smiled and said, “Let us men smoke in secret. Don’t let your mother find out, or else she’ll start saying I’ve corrupted you again.”

As he spoke, he placed his burning cigarette back in his mouth and lowered his head, pulling out his lighter from his pocket.

 

But unexpectedly, Chi Xiaochi tiptoed slightly, causing the cigarette in his mouth to naturally bump into the cigarette in Dong Feihong’s mouth. c1qHXM

——Hiss.

The dark red, burning cigarette butt lit the paper covering the other cigarette, which in turn lit the tobacco inside.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Dong Feihong’s heart suddenly jumped.

After lighting his cigarette, Chi Xiaochi automatically pulled back, as if the one who had performed that ambiguous action just now wasn’t him. tX 2vl

 

Leaning against the cold railings, he looked up at the dark night sky and the sporadic blooms of fireworks that would burst occasionally therein.

Even so many years after the decree banning the private lighting of fireworks had been issued, there were still people willing to go against the law. It was as if they felt they wouldn’t be celebrating the Chinese New Year the right way, if they didn’t make some noise during the new year.

Chi Xiaochi asked, “Uncle, I heard you’re going overseas.” OuFjEZ

Dong Feihong nodded.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

Chi Xiaochi’s mission in this world was nearing its end, so he too needed to make preparations for his “disappearance” in advance.

Chi Xiaochi said, “It’s really good abroad. In the future, when I go overseas for competitions, I can still come visit you.”

Dong Feihong just smiled slightly, not answering. BIU3cO

“Dong Feihong” existed for the sake of protecting Chi Xiaochi. Without Chi Xiaochi, if he wanted to cross the huge gap between timelines to maintain “Dong Feihong”’s existence, it would be too difficult, and too unrealistic.

 

After that, Chi Xiaochi stopped talking.

Nephew and uncle smoked a cigarette side by side, then lit another. Gs5SXL

 

The temperature difference between indoors and outdoors was extremely huge, but to Chi Xiaochi, who trained in the cold all year round, this bit of cold was nothing.

Just like that, the two stood there quietly for a while, before suddenly, Chi Xiaochi spoke.

Facing the vast, empty rink, he asked, “Uncle, have you seen 《The Matrix》?” vHKXyl

This world had this film, but because 061 hadn’t seen it, Dong Feihong hadn’t seen it either.

He shook his head honestly and asked, “What is it about?”

Chi Xiaochi took a puff of his cigarette. “Nothing much. It’s a good movie.”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

The tone he used to say this was very loose and languid, incredibly close to the true Chi Xiaochi.

In Dong Feihong’s eyes, all data could be analysed. So, at this moment, the Chi Xiaochi in his eyes had his complete, original appearance.

——Snow-white smoke flowed past his slightly reddened lips, floating up along his perfectly formed nose and slowly dispersing, disappearing into the freezing air. PEJsfN

His eyes were filled with a provocative heedlessness, mixed with a bit of melancholy, enchanting to the point of distraction.

Dong Feihong couldn’t help but speak, “You……”

However, before he could finish speaking, Madam Dong’s voice drifted over from afar, “Dong Ge. ……Xiao Ge! Where are you?!” MWZqbp

Chi Xiaochi naturally reverted his expression to one of Dong Ge’s and skillfully dumped his cigarette butt in the disposable cup prepared by Dong Feihong that was filled with water. “Mom, I’m here.”

Madam Dong shouted, “There’s someone here looking for you.”

 

Dong Ge had thought that it might be an acquaintance, but when he saw He Changsheng dragging his suitcase behind him, he was still given a shock. 2dKtxr

He quickly walked over. “He-qianbei?”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

“I originally meant to come by your house to wish you a Happy New Year tomorrow.” He Changsheng’s breath escaped in white puffs from his mouth. His eyelashes covered in frost, he looked both pale and beautiful. “……But something unexpected happened. Can I stay at your house for a day?”

Dong Ge of course agreed.

His house had two guest rooms, so there was enough space for He Changsheng to stay. 6wdf21

As he brought He Changsheng into his home, Dong Ge didn’t ask a single question. And when he introduced He Changsheng to his parents, he just said that He Changsheng was here on a trip.

Madam Dong recognised him, and having just heard the rumours off the grapevine recently, her gaze towards He Changsheng was a little different. “It’s New Year’s Eve, why are you out on a trip? What about your parents?”

He Changsheng held a hot cup of tea in his hands and answered truthfully, “I’m an orphan.”

He Changsheng had been bullied right after entering the sports school for this very reason. In the eyes of children, those who had mothers were naturally superior to those without. TjMF P

Now, bringing up such matters once more, He Changsheng already didn’t have any special feelings about it, but Madam Dong already couldn’t hold back her loving heart, beginning to fuss over him and handing him melon seeds. After about three sentences, she was pretty much ready to adopt him.

He Changsheng had never received such grand treatment before in his life. For a while, he was at a loss as to what to do, only able to keep close to the familiar Dong Ge’s side.

In the end, it was Dong Ge who rescued him and brought him to the guest room.

  rHJikh

The moment the door closed, He Changsheng breathed a deep sigh of relief. “Thank you.”

Dong Ge, “You’re not used to this.”

He Changsheng, “Yeah, I’m not very used to this. Lou-ge’s family…… isn’t like this.”

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

Mister and Madam Lou had been reminded of He Changsheng’s life experiences many times by Lou Sifan in private. Hence, He Changsheng was always treated with absolute caution, with a deep fear of touching his sore spots. As such, even though He Changsheng was treated with courtesy in the Lou home, it was always unavoidably awkward. 2cxsfk

In contrast, he was a little unused to Madam Dong’s enthusiasm, but it warmed his heart a little.

Dong Ge went silent.

He Changsheng sat down on the chair. “I’ll stay overnight and leave tomorrow.”

Dong Ge said, “Up to you. If you want, you can stay a few more days.” HPTnS7

He Changsheng said, “Can you lend me some money?”

Dong Ge, “How much?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

He Changsheng, “I need a train ticket back to the provincial team, so about 120 should be enough.”

Dong Ge said, “Alright. But I don’t think there are any tickets left by now. First check online to see if there are any tickets remaining.” vVO kq

He Changsheng said, “I lost my phone.”

Dong Ge, “……You should buy a spare first then.”

He Changsheng, “My wallet and cell phone were stolen.”

Dong Ge, “……What do you still have on you?” gcdyP4

He Changsheng said, “I still have my ID card. I’ve always kept my ID card and wallet separately.”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

 

Chi Xiaochi, “……”

Fuck, all that this New Year left you was your ID card? DVv3Zl

 

He asked, “Qianbei, you came here because you were planning on celebrating the New Year with Lou-qianbei, right?”

He Changsheng fell strangely silent for a while, before answering, “En. He and I got into a fight.”

  YbCjQM

……Alright, so the cause and effect of the story had finally come together.

He Changsheng had originally planned on celebrating the New Year with Lou Sifan, but something unexpected happened and an angry argument occurred; He Changsheng left the Lou home, planning on going to the train station to buy a ticket back to the provincial team, but his wallet and cellphone were unexpectedly stolen. Without any other options, he could only go on foot to look for Dong Ge, who was also in the area, for help.

Dong Ge checked if there were any train tickets left. “From the first day of the Lunar New Year to the fourth, all the tickets have been sold out.”

He Changsheng lowered his head. “I’ll take the bus back.” PCbO Z

Dong Ge said, “Alright, I’ll go with you to the passenger terminal tomorrow to take a look.” 

He Changsheng said, “Thank you.”

 

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

He Changsheng didn’t say why he and Lou Sifan had fought, and Dong Ge didn’t ask. s6EWz8

He Changsheng was grateful for this seemingly inconsiderate consideration.

Since last year’s good news had been sent to the provincial team, Lou Sifan hadn’t been in very good condition. In the next national competition, he didn’t even manage to enter the preliminaries.

This matter infuriated Lou Sifan’s coach, who made him prepare at least 5 individual self-reflections and analyses.

And while chatting that afternoon, Mister Lou had also brought up that matter, telling him to guard himself against pride and impatience and to learn more from his teammate, Dong Ge. YWdCrg

At that time, Lou Sifan’s expression had been very ugly.

He Changsheng knew that this topic wasn’t pleasant for him, and hence wanted to turn the conversation to another topic. “Dong Ge also lives around here, right? Tomorrow I’m going to find him and wish him a Happy New Year, Lou-ge, want to come with me?”

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

The Lou Sifan who had always been cultured and refined unexpectedly blew up. “Can you not bring up that person!?”

He Changsheng was stunned. “……” wIK7u1

Lou Sifan began to shout, as if venting, “Wherever I go it’s him, wherever I go it’s him! For these past few years, you haven’t had a home to return to. Who was it that took you in for the New Year? If you want to go find him, fine then, go, quickly go! Don’t stay here——”

Once the words left his mouth, Lou Sifan also realised his mistake. His face flushed a purplish-red, but even if he wanted to take back his words, it was too late.

He Changsheng had already gotten over the death of his parents, but it was hard for him to accept his friend saying this kind of thing.

So, in order to prevent things from becoming even more unbearable, he chose to leave. IMuQR4

After their simple conversation, He Changsheng said, “You should go keep your parents company.”

Dong Ge said, “I’ll stay with you.”

He Changsheng said, “Accompanying me will be very boring. I’m going to be designing my skating routine.” IApq8d

Dong Ge said, “That’s interesting.”

Only then did He Changsheng realise the person before him was also someone for whom figure skating was life. To them, figure skating would never be boring, and every day would have something new.

His heart softened even further. “Alright.”

  Yglk5K

He Changsheng’s “routine” was the program routine they intended to perform at the World Championships.

This time, He Changsheng’s coach was rather ambitious, wanting He Changsheng and Fang Xiaoyan to break through the regret of getting fourth place from last time and win a medal.

Therefore, while Dong Ge had already submitted his routine last year, He Changsheng was still consulting with his choreographer, burning the midnight oil every day. Even this New Year’s Day was no exception.

Dong Ge went out, made a pot of black tea and came back in. “Qianbei, do you have any problems?” qRZOU

He Changsheng’s expression was a little vexed. “I need to hand in routine number twelve tomorrow, but I’m not sure how to design this movement better.”

 

Dong Ge looked over at his drafted routine.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

In Dong Ge’s memories, He Changsheng had performed rather excellently in this World Championship, but because of yet another change of partners and their not being accustomed enough to each other yet, their expressiveness was lacking and they lost their chance at a medal. 6NCkVr

 

“Puberty” was a major hurdle practically every athlete had to pass, especially ice skaters and swimmers, for theirs was a type of sport which had requirements for body types that were so harsh it was almost perverse.

Dong Ge and the other athletes’ body weights were measured in liang, and their measurements were taken every day. If there was any increase or decrease beyond the calculated range, they would suffer a penalty and their training would double.

Girls, due to having to face the development of breasts, buttocks and other such organs, faced more uncertainties than boys, so during puberty, male skaters often had to change their female partners. zVbuDQ

But this time, He Changsheng’s partner was Fang Xiaoyan, who had worked with him for almost ten years. In terms of technique and cooperation, there shouldn’t be any problem.

Seeing He Changsheng wrack his brains yet remain unable to come up with a solution, Dong Ge simply proposed, “My family has an ice rink, why don’t we try it out on the ice?”

  1. I’M LOSING MY MIND! DG showing off for HCS when CXC lets him have control over their body! BLUSHING ABOUT IT! and HCS’s ” Only then did He Changsheng realise the person before him was also someone for whom figure skating was life. To them, figure skating would never be boring, and every day would have something new.” M.F.E.O.!!! (also, CXC unconciously? seducing Lou-Ge hoho)

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  8. AHHH ROMANTIC ICE SKATING NEXT CHAPTER!!!!!

    Thanks for the update, they are so cute!!

  9. The ship is real~!!🚢

    CXC brought up a peacock lol

    Hope this time DG can be more direct with his wants~

    And Matrix…… maybe CXC thought about the world that seems so real but it isn’t his world……. so he also chooses the red pill? To go back to his reality where there’s only a tomb?

    Thanks for the chapter!

  10. CXC is so smart, I’m sure he’s suspecting DFH’s relationship to his Lou-ge. But I wonder what exactly about the Matrix he’s referencing? I only remember… red pill blue pill.

    And!! Dong Ge is so cute!! Showing off to HCS…. Baby. I hope he can be happy this lifetime ;-;

  11. Dong Ge is showing off for He Changsheng!! How lovely! How pure this love is! Ahhh, they’re so great for each other. I hope He Changsheng can love him back, or admit his feelings, because there’s something already there.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  12. Ahahahahaha CXC teasing Dong Ge. Eventhough Dong Ge can’t respond to him, that “blushing data” is already enough to melt my heart a little (❁´◡`❁)

    Ahhhhh I love CXC and Liu-laoshiiiiii (づ ̄ 3 ̄)づ please make the hurdles easier for them to overcome🙏

  13. I love how its the opposite now. Dong Ge used to always here about He Changsheng from Lou Sifan and now Lou Sifan has to hear about Dong Ge from He Changsheng and it drives him crazy. HAHAH thats some sweet karma. Glad the DG and HS ship is slowly happening! Thank you for the chapter

  14. AHHHH you have no idea how hard I squealed at the cigarette scene. My boy CXC is so bold. I’m ready for him to actually find out about Liu-laoshi and them feed me some sweet dog food!

  15. YAS THE FREEZER X REFRIGERATOR SHIP IS SAILING

    Also it’s really interesting that the author uses ‘Dong Ge’ when in front of parents, teammates and stuff but in front of Dong Feihong, the author shifts to using ‘Chi Xiaochi’

    🤔

    Loving this arc. Thank you godly translators for translating this!

  16. Something tells me that at some point at the ice rink CXC might hand over the control and there might be some sweet action.At least that would be really lovely. They really suit each other our refrigerator and the cute freezer💙💙💙

  17. Aww.. Thanks for the translation. This chapter is very sweet. Even HCS & LSF fighting is very delightful to be heard. What a good moves HCS, don’t you ever bother coming to that toxic waste. DG here will care for you later.

    But CXC, how will you plan to seduce DFH/061 later? You both don’t have any corporeal bodies…

  18. Thank you for translating! This development between DG and HCS is getting interesting 7v7! Also that moment between CXC and Liu-laoshi is too much for my little brain QAQ

  19. I have to laugh bc Chi Xiaochi’s world difficulties so far spell out DAB. I hope he dabs before he leaves this one x’D

    Also I like He Changsheng, what a wholesome guy. He is worthy of Dong Ge, and I hope they grow old together, maybe even adopting a dog together :3c

    Also I can’t help but hope that each of his hosts are also a little in love with Chi Xiaochi too and secretly root for 061 to spoil him ^_^ I wonder how many of them have wanted to facepalm or shake Chi Xiaochi and tell him that 061 likes him??,,? I hope they all become Chi Xiaochi and Lou Ying’s neighbors in the end that way the happy couple gets to be surrounded by a supportive community <3
