After coming back from Finland, Dong Ge and He Changsheng took a trip to the neighbourhood he used to go to every week. n7xUOK

He asked He Changsheng to wait downstairs for a while while he walked up the stairs, step by step, until he reached the fifth floor.

When he went further up, what met him was no longer a warm home, but a staircase leading to the roof.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Dong Ge walked to the top of the staircase, and slowly sat down.

This old apartment building had never had a sixth floor, just like how he’d never had an uncle. gdQ2wy

 

Ever since “Dong Feihong” went abroad, the memories the people around him had of him had all gradually began to fade. First, it was He Changsheng and the rest, then, it was his parents.

Only Dong Ge still remembered this person clearly.

When Chi Xiaochi was still in his body and he first saw Dong Feihong, he had found it strange.

NYZ8eg

He remembered very clearly, his father had no brothers.

He had gone to the police station to check, and even the record of Dong Feihong saving them had been erased completely. On the file, it was written that it was a passing policeman who had resolved their crisis.

……Everyone knew that a person’s time on earth was like a goose’s footprint in the snow

Everything related to Dong Feihong had gradually disappeared. The only thing that hadn’t disappeared was the manga Dong Feihong had promised to draw for him. LI9PSb

 

He pulled out the manga from his bag and casually flipped it open to a random page.

“Dong Ge” had just finished his leg stretches and was now resting. He unscrewed the cap off of a bottle of mineral water.

As if he’d sensed someone’s arrival, he looked over, out of the page. Mf8JXV

The Dong Ge in the manga and the Dong Ge in reality met eyes.

The look in that person’s eyes was incredibly like Dong Ge’s, three parts wariness, three parts pride, like a little stray cat who wouldn’t admit defeat.

But the remaining four parts, however, were an alienation and a melancholy that made one’s heart hurt.

  EleYR1

Dong Ge closed the manga, wondering, that person called Chi Xiaochi, how was he able to act so much like him?

 

A quarter of an hour later, the He Changsheng downstairs finally couldn’t wait any longer, going upstairs himself to look for him.

Seeing Dong Ge sitting on the steps, He Changsheng asked, “Where’s your friend?” IMQlJn

Dong Ge replied, “Moved away.”

He Changsheng asked, “Was it a very good friend?”

Upon speaking of this, He Changsheng thought about Lou Sifan once more. His expression changed slightly.

Yesterday, he’d found out that Lou Sifan had turned in his application to withdraw from the team. It seemed like he was planning on going abroad for treatment. 8lF fx

Lou Sifan didn’t come to see him, and he hadn’t gone to see Lou Sifan. The former best friends, just like that, plainly and without any fanfare, went their separate ways. 

Dong Ge said, “They saved my life.”

He was wearing a loose black hoodie, on it written QUEEN. BFC3do

The Dong Ge who was wearing KING looked up at He Changsheng, the look in his eyes turning gentle. “Qianbei, your hair’s gotten long.”

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

He Changsheng touched his hair and said, “I haven’t cut it in a long time.”

Dong Ge said, “I’ll help you tie it into a half crown braid.”

He Changsheng said, “You know how to?” FTNR8E

Dong Ge, “Yes. Someone taught me.”

He Changsheng then turned his back to him, letting him do as he wished.

As Dong Ge ran his fingers through He Changsheng’s thick hair, his heart gradually settled down.

He Changsheng, his back to him, said, “Come visit my new house today.” W8 xda

More than half a year ago, He Changsheng had used all the prize money he had accumulated over the years to buy an apartment. The renovations had been completed three months ago.

Dong Ge said, “Okay.”

He Changsheng lowered his voice even further, “……Bring your toothbrush.”

Dong Ge laughed, “Okay.” cdKdqB

 

The nightmare was over. What he held in his hands now, what he embraced in his arms, was the truth.

Back to one and a half months earlier. ijpfYP

In the “Space Between Moments”, all the data from Chi Xiaochi’s third world was already displayed on the databoard before the Lord God.

 

Host number: No. 1198

Host name: Chi Xiaochi DdGOJn

World Difficulty Level Assessment: B-rank (Normal level)

Degree of world completion: 100

Read more BL at chrysanthemumgarden.com

Host status assessment: All functions are good and stable, can be transmitted at any time.

Total entropy value: 1370 (Below average of 4120) bX0ZIR

 

Although the data was still far from the passing mark, and the original host’s entropy value was still 0, it was still very pleasing when compared to the data from before.

The Lord God observed several key points of fluctuations in Chi Xiaochi’s entropy value, in a rare happy mood.

There was a knock at the door. Subsequently, 061 appeared in the “Space Between Moments”. ZaxlB5

061 said, neither overly humble nor overly arrogant, “You were looking for me?”

Read more BL at chrysanthemumgarden.com

The Lord God said, “Yes. I’m informing you in advance that for your next world, your host will be entering an A-rank world.”

061’s expression changed slightly, “You……”

The Lord God cut him off, “However, I will give you the authority to create an identity for yourself, so that you can have a real and effective identity in the next world and can help your host complete his task.” avCqjP

061 didn’t instantly agree. “Why are you doing this?”

The Lord God said, “I’ve always wanted to reform the criterion for choosing hosts, to make arrangements for hosts with different personalities and different capabilities. Chi Xiaochi’s appearance has let me catch sight of this possibility. He should do his utmost to carry out high-rank tasks to provide us with even more experimental samples and data. Last time I conducted the experiment, I didn’t think it through enough. Now with you being by his side to provide assistance and protection, you should be able to be at ease.”

061 thought, Chi Xiaochi was indeed unlike any other host.

061 asked, “Under the precondition that I can have a body, will I still retain my abilities?” 1IOZuK

The Lord God replied, “Yes.”

061, “Can I tell the host about my identity as his system?”

The Lord God said, “No.”

061, “Why?” U2n7tM

The Lord God said, “If you tell him, can you guarantee that he won’t become reliant on your existence? If he becomes reliant on you, the experimental data will lack appropriate evidence.”

061 didn’t say anything else, thinking about this plan proposed by the Lord God.

The Lord God added, “If you’re willing to continue with my plan, I will implant a secrecy program into your body. Once implanted, you won’t have the power to declare your true identity. Moreover, the terms I’m offering you haven’t changed: Instead of 200 tasks, you just need to carry out 120 tasks before being able to leave.”

After coming out of the “Space Between Moments”, 061 let out a long sigh.

……He had agreed to the Lord God’s proposal. 

He dared to agree, firstly, because Chi Xiaochi had already accumulated enough cards, secondly, because he believed he’d be able to protect Xiaochi, thirdly, because……

Thirdly, because he was selfish. f6EvtX

He remembered he needed to keep an appointment.

There was someone waiting for him. He’d been waiting for a long, long time now, so he couldn’t bear to make him wait even longer.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

 

Probably because he’d thought of the person who was waiting for him, 061 suddenly missed Chi Xiaochi to an unbearable extent now. OWhNKS

Upon returning to his room, he paced around for a bit, then read for a while, before finally, he couldn’t bear it anymore. He stood up and sent himself back to that white space.

Going by his search history, he sent himself to that set of tube-shaped apartments and found Chi Xiaochi.

Because this wasn’t a task world, 061 practically lost all of his abilities, only retaining his basic sensory abilities.

  A4xoLq

It happened to be in the evening. Chi Xiaochi was lying on his bed, already asleep.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

Just as 061 entered his body, he saw Chi Xiaochi jerk up from the bed, rub his face and look around anxiously.

Slowly, his eyes, which had still had some light in them, dimmed.

Then, 061 heard him let out a hoarse laugh. kANbq2

The corners of his eyes curved, the corners of his mouth curved, outrageously alluring.

 

Chi Xiaochi had just been dreaming.

In the dream, Chi Xiaochi had been watching 《Les Misérables》. Upon watching the ending, he laid down on the table and cried. IOomqf

When Lou Ying came back from outside and saw such a Chi Xiaochi, he was given a big shock.

Patting his back, he asked, “What’s wrong? What’s wrong?”

Chi Xiaochi had cried himself into a weeping Niobe. His eyes clouded with tears, he looked at Lou Ying, “He died, Jean Valjean died……” zolgRG

Lou Ying took him into his arms and stroked his head. “It’s okay, it’s okay. Don’t cry.”

Chi Xiaochi buried himself into Lou Ying’s embrace, sniffling.

But when he looked up once more, the embrace was gone, Lou Ying was gone, even his tears were gone.

Chi Xiaochi remembered that he already hadn’t cried in a long time now, outside of for his work.

That last time he cried had been when he’d learned of Black’s real ending in 《Harry Potter》.

Upon finding out about Sirius’ death, he’d taken a fifteen minute break and hid in the bathroom.

He needed ten minutes to fix his makeup, so he gave himself five minutes to cry. HS7LBW

He pressed his head against the walls of the cubicle. As his tears streamed down his face, his mouth kept repeating the same words over and over, reminding himself, “Five minutes. Five minutes.”

Now, he couldn’t cry, and he didn’t really want to cry.

After sitting in a daze for a while, he called in his mind, “Liu-laoshi, Liu-laoshi.” NhktyU

061 snapped to attention, immediately sending him back to the space.

A little too ashamed to say that he had been secretly peeking at Chi Xiaochi just now, he just asked, “How was your rest?”

Chi Xiaochi indifferently raised the corners of his lips, looking careless and casual, as if nothing could shake him. “It was very good. Let’s go, on to the next task.”

  1. I’m glad Dong Ge got that fake uncle to help him even if it was for a short time. Now he can live a Happy life. He Changsheng and him are such a cute couple. Ahhh, my heart melts for them.

    An ABO World, you say? Ohh, that must be interesting.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  2. What a bittersweet chapter…dong ge and he changseng are really suited for each other, I think they’re going to make each other very happy. Plus they’re going to be living together again! Roommates, roommates~

    When Dong Ge started speculating about Chi Xiaochi it sort of felt…fitting? Or how to say like good. Good that someone remembered him, him as him, beyond him just being their saviour. When Dong Ge tied He Changseng’s hair into a crown braid, for some reason that made me feel forlorn. Somehow these worlds are complete when Xiaochi is there but at the same time, even if he isn’t, they’re still complete. Finding out about his increased entropy level broke my heart. The Lord God that pig knows what’s up. The next world will definitely hurt out xiaochi more but in the long run they might both be happier? Because now Lou Ying only needs to finish up with one host after xiaochi is done and then they can be together again. I would be satisfied with just that but the author seems to promise to amaze with her foreshadowing. I can’t wait to see how everything shapes out.

    Thank you translators for the chapter.

    Author is so valid.

  3. Damn cxc and ly!!!!😭 why? Why can’t you just find out the truth and live happily ever after? Why do you have to torture yourselves like this?

  4. This chaoter is evil. First going to Heaven and then being dropped to Hell. I cry for CXC, it’s so sad to see him first being close to someone who reminded him LY now he had a sad dream even his reason for going back is incredibly sad, but he still stays sigh

    But also unexpected, but I wait for the new arc and it’s ABO!! I wonder how CXC will handle it! That evil Pig Brain wants to put CXC in danger and torture him emotionally, I wanna stab it so much.

  5. This thing about Liu-laoshi having his own character in each world has me really worried. Since he is Lou-ge, he’ll definitely unconsciously act like how he did (originally with CXC) and since CXC won’t know his real identity, there’s a high chance that this will affect him.

    I just hope Liu-laoshi finds a loophole for that secrecy thing or CXC finds out himself. But the problem with the latter one is that, CXC convinces himself he’s imagining things because he still misses Lou-ge too much. ARGH, I’M SO ANXIOUS!

    In any case, HCS and DG are really good and cute boys. And thise matching clothes were also just 💘

    Anyway, next world is ABO, so I’m really excited for that!

    Thanks for the chapter! 🙂

  6. Ugh, I think I know why the Lord God is so happy to have 061 go in as a character, he’s probably hoping it’ll increase CXC’s entropy level (ಠ_ಠ)

    Thanks for the chapter. Bittersweet as it was, I hurt to read in a good way TvT

  7. This was a perfect ending for Dong Ge. I hope someday, all the people Chi Xiaochi has helped are able to thank him in person. I feel like I just drank dessert coffee. Nice way to end a meal, but still a little bitter that Chi Xiaochi has a long way to go before he properly reunites with his Lou Ge.

    Pig Brain is spending so much time on Chi Xiaochi, is he still doing his job properly? What am I saying. Of course he isn’t. I hope he gets his deserved ending too. Thabk you for the update!

  8. what do you mean at the end by: The author says they’re vers??

    I weep with joy everytime this story is updated. ^^

    • Versatile, so seke. Actually, the lit words used by the author were that both are semes i.e. taking turns to attack;)

    • Author said they’re vers/versatile, i.e. they take turns being gong.

      • OMG thank you both for clarifying that!!! And I FUCKING CALLED IT! They have total seke vibes~~ I’m so happy the author did that, oml they are so awesome

  9. A question that doesn’t leave my mind. Who is the gong between dong ge and he changsheng? Incredible as it may seem, they both seem to be a SHOU, but between the two, I still have the idea that dong g is GONG.

  10. Reader’s comment: Little Dong Ge is #1 (gong) !!???

    Author’s reply: I’ve said before that Dong Ge doesn’t like being the shou.

    However in this one setting they take turns being gong~

    Thanks Baum for the translation! And asafjkdafdfsldsl those two beautiful figure skater boys. My heart ;____; <333

    • ^^^ The first three lines (including the two boys taking turns being gong) are what the screencap at the end of the chapter says.

  11. Thank you for the chapter and the very important author’s reply, Baum. 😂

  12. Aww I hope it’s not Alpha x Omega. After reading so many fics and novels I got bored of that dynamic. I want a cute beta being chased by an alpha. Two omegas in love. Well let’s see what the next arc has for us u_u

  13. Oh!!! Damn!!! I’m really unsettled. Yknow. The lord God is using 061 without him even knowing to raise CXC’s entropy level. And here 061 is thinking it is a good thing.

    (By the way is entropy level a Good thing???? Ever since it was revealed I didn’t care much but since the Lord God is wanting to raise it very badly I think it is very important)

    • It’s considered your level of feelings when you feel the most despair or feelings of being crazy. It’s basically a chaotic feeling in your heart that is derived by outside stimulus, making you really shaked up. That chaotic emotions is what gives the Lord Pig pleasure and what he gets out of the Host and the soul trapped in the body. Pretty fucked up, because he gets high off of other people’s misery (basically)

  14. I think pig brain is using 061’s own creation identity to stimulate mc’s entropy.

  15. Hope dong ge still saves an empty seat in the front for “them”!2. I THINK HCS IS BOTTOM AND IDK WHY BUT THAT MAKES ME RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY (or reversible, which is even better, because I HATE how stories always have such iron & unchanging roles)

  16. Aaah…ABO..

    Its just sad that this novel seems like doesnt have any smut smexy NSFW scene..

    😭
