Don't Pick Up Boyfriends From the Trash BinCh8.2 - Genius Cannonfodder’s Counterattack Record (8.2)


translator: baumkuchen  editors: serefina, verywronganswer, aroma

After fiddling with the projector in the living room for a bit, Chi Xiaochi managed to turn it on. He then made himself a cup of vegetable juice and curled up on the sofa. As he fiddled with the remote control, he occasionally sipped his drink. uiksSv

He said, “It’s been a while since another person accompanied me to watch a movie.”

Before 061 could respond, Chi Xiaochi continued, “Oh right, you aren’t a person.”

061, “……” You’re not wrong.

Chi Xiaochi, “That’s also fine. What do you want to watch?” 0ArSTM

061, “Up to you.”

Chi Xiaochi laughed, “Aiyo, how considerate. The way you said that sounds like you’re spoiling your girlfriend. You’re probably really popular with the other AIs, aren’t you?”

061, “Somewhat.”

061’s answer wasn’t wrong. He was mild tempered, so other AIs liked to come to him to vent, using him as an “emotional trash bin”. He was indeed popular.


He quickly followed up with, “However, the main system didn’t provide AIs intimacy methods. We have only pure friendship between us.”

Chi Xiaochi pressed on the buttons of the remote to rapidly flip though movies, “You really don’t have any aspirations. Even if you don’t have any such conditions, you still could create them. Aren’t you guys made of 1s and 0s?” 

061, “……”

After reacting, he felt as his ears and spirit had been tainted. EjvVbR


Chi Xiaochi selected a horror movie and dimmed the lights in the living room in passing.

As the movie started playing, 061 reminded him, “Lower the volume a little. Most people are still sleeping now, so don’t disturb your neighbours.”

“This place’s soundproofing is really good,” Chi Xiaochi wasn’t at all concerned, “Unless I brought a drill here and started drilling for diamonds or oil, no one will complain.” 36CaIN

Although he’d talked big, the moment the horror movie music started, he madly mashed the volume button, immediately lowering the volume from 40 to 20.

Two minutes into the movie, Chi Xiaochi’s teeth started to chatter.

061, “……Are you scared?”

Chi Xiaochi, “Nonsense.” JfQkq1

061, “……If you’re scared, don’t watch anymore.”

Chi Xiaochi covered his eyes with his cup, “I’m watching it because there is someone else to watch it with me.”

The system sighed. He didn’t understand his logic of “the more I’m scared, the more I want to watch”.

“Given how the movie’s been going, nothing will happen when the female lead looks behind her. It’s only when she turns around that the ghost will come out, so when that happens, close your eyes.” TyL4IK


Like this, with him opening then closing his eyes, closing then opening them, Chi Xiaochi unexpectedly fell asleep curled up on the sofa.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

061 quietly urged, “Wake up, go back to sleep on the bed, or else you might catch a cold from sleeping on the sofa.”

Chi Xiaochi quietly “hmph”-ed and flipped over, curling up around the thin blanket. Q7ZrC3

061 sighed, “……Ai.”

Shortly, a dark figure appeared in front of the sofa.

The tall young man in a white shirt and black pants bent down, taking Chi Xiaochi and his blanket into his arms.

Chi Xiaochi’s whole body violently stiffened and he quickly opened his eyes. R6FPko

061 was a little embarrassed, but after staring at him for a while, Chi Xiaochi closed his eyes once more.

Chi Xiaochi thought, I’m dreaming again. This time, it’s a good dream.

……He couldn’t tell Lou-ge he’d noticed him, or else he’d leave again. Iu5Pye

061 waited a while longer, waiting until Chi Xiaochi had gone back to sleep before slowly carrying him into the bedroom.


While Chi Xiaochi was living a comfortable, cozy life, Yang Baihua’s thoughts were in turmoil.


Returning home exhausted only to find that there was no hot soup and rice awaiting him, just a cold pot and cold stove, Yang Baihua was increasingly unhappy.

He moved out to that childhood friend’s home already? Was he that eager to move out? He couldn’t even find some time to give him a heads up?


Yang Baihua was incredibly exhausted. He felt that recently his passion for Cheng Yuan had gradually died down, and his interest in bedroom matters had even decreased. He frequently felt tired enough to collapse while washing up, where did he have the time to make up with him? zBmU1b

He was so busy with work, but Young Master Cheng Yuan had never learned to be considerate.


Yang Baihua didn’t look for Cheng Yuan.

From prior experience, Cheng Yuan was usually the first to give in. He would soon call and make up with him anyways. FSZVlq

However, his parents had already been here for three or four days, but he still hadn’t received an explanation from Cheng Yuan.

When he took his parents out for dinner, he spoke very little and couldn’t stop rubbing his finger on the leather case of the steering wheel.

His parents were sitting in the backseat, and his younger cousin Yang Xiaoyan was sitting in the passenger seat.

Even after sitting in this car for a few days, his parents still hadn’t lost interest in the novelty of the car. His mother was studying the tinted film on the car window, “Child, with this thing stuck on the window, you really can’t see inside from the outside?” KNGRBn

Yang Baihua came back to himself. He nodded and smiled, “Yes.”

Yang Xiaoyan was wearing bright red nail polish, and her makeup and clothes were all in fashion.

Her phone had run out of battery, so she had borrowed Yang Baihua’s phone to play with. Hearing this, she silently pursed her lips.

……Country bumpkin. mgy4HG


After scrolling through Weibo for a while and responding to a few messages from fans, she started clicking in and out of various apps on Yang Baihua’s phone.

Wanting to find new gossip, she secretly opened up Yang Baihua and Cheng Yuan’s chat history. After flipping through a few pages, she saw the three songs Cheng Yuan had sent over a few days earlier, labelled as demo1, 2, and 3 respectively.

Yang Xiaoyan also occasionally wrote some small tunes, so she was naturally very interested in the work of her Xiao Cheng-ge. With a tap of her fingertips, the music started playing. 5A3dIS

Without any warning, the music started echoing inside the car. Yang Baihua’s scalp broke out in goosebumps.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

He wanted to snatch back his phone, but he was currently driving. He was also afraid his movements would be too obvious, arousing his parents’ suspicion. He could only worry helplessly, a steady flow of cold sweat seeping out of his palms.


On the other side of the car, Yang Xiaoyan was over the moon. Lug2C

She could tell that this wasn’t the finished demo and was just a prototype, but the melody was full of creativity and was made with masterful artistry. It was accompanied by a person’s quiet humming, which tugged at the heartstrings.

With a cold look on his face, Yang Baihua said, “Don’t randomly play music, you’re wasting data.”

Yang Xiaoyan’s eyes spun. She came up with an idea, “Was this composed by Xiao Cheng-ge?”

Yang Baihua’s expression twisted. He shot Yang Xiaoyan a look. 3SfTNE

Yang Xiaoyan stared at him with bright eyes, pretending to not understand.

Yang Baihua scolded her in his heart.


This question indeed attracted the attention of Yang Baihua’s parents. dM52tV

His father asked, “Xiao Cheng? Your brother’s friend?”

Yang Xiaoyan was quick to answer first, “Yeah, didn’t brother ever mention him to you? He’s older brother’s good friend, a musician.”

Yang Baihua was sweating profusely through his palms, making his hands slip slightly on the steering wheel.

Please visit chrysanthemumgarden.com

When she heard the words “good friend”, his mother was a somewhat expectant, but hearing “a musician”, her bottom lip turned down, making a disdainful expression similar to the expression Yang Xiaoyan had made earlier. 0ClYNM

“Child, listen to Mom, don’t associate yourself with those types of people without a proper job. You’re different from them. You did well in university, are a university graduate who got his degree through hard, steady work, and are a proud son of heaven. Most of those art students are fools. They study the arts because they aren’t good enough to study anything else, and have no future.”

Yang Baihua didn’t have the chance to speak before Yang Xiaoyan robbed him of it, “Xiao Cheng-ge’s from a rich family, he can study whatever he wants.” She then turned to Yang Baihua and whined, “Brother, isn’t he?”

Embarrassed, his mother looked at Yang Baihua.

Yang Baihua followed up on his mother’s words, saying, “He just casually composes and sings a bit, he doesn’t really have much future prospects.” bCL4uK

Having found some face, his mother let out a “hoh”, then turned towards Xiaoyan, “You hear that? Only rich people can mess around like this.”

Xiaoyan pretended not to hear. She played around with Yang Baihua’s phone, and the more she listened, the more interested she was.

Story translated by Chrysanthemum Garden.

She tried to sound out Yang Baihua, asking, “Did Xiao Cheng-ge also just casually write these? Is he not going to sell them like the others he wrote?”

Yang Baihua, eager to put an end to the topic, pressed down hard on the car horn and answered in a low voice, “His family’s rich, so he doesn’t usually sell his music. Besides, he doesn’t like relating music with money.” vIQDzK

Yang Xiaoyan was relieved.

She sneakily picked two out of the three demos, and forwarded them to herself. With another few taps of her finger, she quickly and silently deleted the forwarding history off of Yang Baihua’s phone.

sere: can’t believe she doesn’t have a guilty conscience. My anger at this idiot surpasses my excitement from earlier in the chapter

Also Trash Yang comes from a TRASH family. I literally hate everyone who appeared so far in his family uHRlI

baum: yeah, every time I have to translate something with her in it, I keep having to take breaks to calm down orz She pisses me off SO MUCH.

But 061 was so sweet this chapter~~ :blobaww: Where can I find myself a guy like him omg

Translator's Note

1 means gong/top, and 0 means shou/bottom. He’s using the fact that they’re made of binary code to make a joke about how they consist of shous and gongs haha

Translator's Note

currently, I’m using Ge if they’re actual siblings, but brother if they’re not. In Chinese, we kinda refer to cousins as brother or sister too.

  1. Oh wow… I wonder if/when the MC will find out. Thanks for the chapter 🙂

  2. I want to wash my eyes with the fluff
    Aaah Luo-ge so sweeeettt

  3. This Yang family is just composed of a bunch of shameless, idiotic people. Can’t wait for their ending.

    Thanks for translating

  4. Hhh this just hurts my heart so much(in a good way) i feel squeezed, i need mo a r

    Thank you for the chapter ^^

  5. Totally agree with sere. I am filled with righteous indignation right now.

    • And thanks for the chap, baum and serefina, verywronganswer, aroma~~

  6. This girl is too much. She shamelessly stole the songs! And that Boyfriend… He should at least defend the other person, agh. They’re so despicable.

    061 is such a good system, fufu.

    Thanks for the chapter!

  7. 061 mentioned that some AI’s ‘start’ as data. 061 said that he has a reason for why he’s so diligent but he doesn’t remember it anymore. MC confused him for his dead lover/best friend/?? conspiracy: 061 is ML??!? 😮 😮 😮

    conspiracy theories aside, what an enjoyable novel~ cunning but righteous MC, defender of justice! great MC and system interacts. one of my favorite quick wear transmigration novels already.

    can i just say though…..i don’t know why, but i have seen hateful cannon fodders before but these cannon fodders!! really!!! inspire!!! hate!! in me!!! i tell myself “they’re just cannon fodder the mc will win in the end” but it doesn’t work like it always did before 😭

    thank you for the translation!

    • my cat senses tell me 061 is Lou-ge!!

  8. CXC actually knew that 061 is Lou ge? :screams: if later he deemed it as only a dream, how would he explain that he’s now sleeping in the bedroom?

    I don’t want to talk about Yang Family, a bunch of prejudiced people, no wonder their children is like that.

    Thank you for the translation..

    • He doesn’t know 061 is Lou Ying because 061 usually doesnt have a physical form. This time, he materialized to carry Chi Xiaochi to bed but because he just woke up and Lou Ying is supposed to be dead he thought he was dreaming insted.

  9. I KNEW IT! It’s his ge!

    Also, fight this bitch!


  10. It was pretty obvious the dead Luo-ge is 061, but aaaah to think CXC would see him so soon! Also, 061 can use his human form even if it’s not system space, huh?

    Man, that whole family is trash. She just stole the songs so casually…

    Thanks for the chapter!

  11. I knew it… 061, you’re making winds and set the ship sailing…!!! On another note, I hate that cousin person, like, as an artist, the worst thing you could do is steal someone else’s work (well this actually applies to anything really, but for artists of any kind, this kind of thing decreases your creativity IMO.) and one should never be proud of theft. She claims herself to be an artist but she’s an embarrassment to the whole artistic world. Thanks for the update~~~

  12. Wowwww no hesitation even. Welp, have fun Cousin Leech. I’m sure MC has a lovely grave just waiting for you…possibly with a shovel to dig it with yourself. (seriously tho he watched the original events 3x there is no way they won’t get weaponized)

  13. Thank you so much for the chapter! This novel is one of the best of its kind; I find that letting the System be its own character is so much more satisfying!! Also, I adore the MC. Hee hee, he breaks all the bad stereotypes for gay men that you sometimes find! It’s just a really good story and the characters seem fresh and new… Ah, so refreshing……

  14. Ok, the parents are hateful, the cousin is a thief, and he has no guts

  15. Freak, I want this shit cousin/sister? to get her retribution already;

  16. Ducking hell! I am so full of anger with nothing to let it out on! NGAAAAH! I need my kitty stress reliever.

  17. Haaaaaaaaaaa! Confirmed~ System 061 is Lou-ge… Hahaha! Like~

    Then the second half of the chapter came together with some irritating fellows.

  18. Oho, so I was right. 061 is MC’s deceased friend. Honestly, I hope that they stay as good friends rather than end up as lovers. I really want to see a wonderful, platonic and close bromance b/w those two. Doubt it tho. High chance that 061 is ML.

    As for that sneaky, thieving brat of a cousin, OG CY has proof that it’s his. They can see that he sent it to his bf. And even though the cousin deleted it, there’s still history of her getting it. They can also check her phone too. Obviously they can look at the dates and time of when CY sent it to his bf vs when the cousin forwarded it to herself.

    Also, the bf’s weird. He doesn’t love CY, but he isn’t satisfied w/ his friends and what CY wants to pursue in life. He’s so insecure about their different backgrounds, honestly, why’d he even stay w/ CY if he only likes him. 13 points away from indifference.

    It also doesn’t seem like he’s planning on telling his parents anytime soon. So what future is there for them? What’s he planning to do about that? He’d have done OG CY a huge favor if they broke up a while back. Or if he was a bit more honest. OG CY really is naive, but he didn’t deserve what life dished out for him.

  19. 061 is Lou-ge?!?! I wasn’t expecting that!

    I hate Xiaoyan. Really hope I can see her face get slapped.

    Thanks for the translation!

  20. I SWEAR, that GIRL, Needs a BEATING !! ARRGHH !!! Restrain me or I might kill that F*cking Woman !!! I’m getting a High Blood because of her !

  21. ohh is he gonna fuck the system? literally

    and there are lots of trashy people like his cousin, my blood boils anytime I visit any subreddit dedicated to stuff like that… how can people be so evil? well they are bc they only care abt themselves

  22. Early part is too cute and sweet especially when 061 telling CXC when to close his eyes and open bc of the horror movie. Makes me laugh…

    Bet everyone hated the girl and me too… What a blabber mouth and stealing other people idea to make money even though she’s a country bumpkin.

    Let’s wait and see how the revenge goes… Look forward to that!

    Thanks for another chapter!

  23. oh wow that cousin of his is super hateful. how can she just casually send those songs to her. super shameless! and his parents are just annoying. they’re super judgemental. also, why can’t he say something to defend CXC?! 😡😡😡

  24. Sooo…the reason why xiaoyan even dares to steal the music is all because Baihua told her he’s not gonna sell it???😡😡😡

  25. Can Chi Xiaochi’s revenge extend to the whole Yang family? That would be greatly appreciated.
